v BIH FIRE AT ABERDEEN
Residents of the western end of Ah
erdei n were greatly alarmed about
four thirty Wednesday afternoon when
fin- broke out in the lumber yard >f
F O. Vide & Co, situated along the
Baltimore A Ohio tracks. The exce.-d
; iijgly inflamahle nature of tin- mater
ials carried by this flnn and the baa
lion *f th* 1 yar*| near the large canning
factory of Mr Morgan Mitchell gave
just cause for fear, particularly as the
1 flam* hud gained considerable head
way befoie discovery by Heorge Cair,
an < mployee of V’lele A Co.
With others **f his men who had
been engage*! in unloading a ear of
lumber at a short distance from the
planing room. Mr. VieU* iimbed t* th**
4cene and began a fight against the
roaring flames. The Aberdeen I 1 ire
Department quickly responded to the
emergency and were further aide*l by
Die Havre *le (rure Department and
equipment from the Aberdeen Proving
(iround. A presnute pump from the
latter place was particularly effective
and H is said wa largely responsible
for the quelling of th*- fire which at
one stage seemed to threaten almost
the eptire town.
A tin roof on th* 1 building of Mr
Mitchell’s plant larg* ly helped to
them. Fite carried by the wind reach
ed the house of Mrs. Male I Morgan,
eituut* d diagonally aero - the street
from the Vieb* buHiness, and did eon
aiderable damage to it a- well a.- to
that of Mr. Denbow adjoining. Freight
cars standing on the B. O. tracks wa r*
removed to a place of safety.
Defective w iring in the planing room
|h thought to have been responsible for
■ the conflagration which destroyed tin*
planing room, much hardwood flooring,
finished mill work and valuable cy
press lumlier. Fortunately the offic*
equipment and records were saved.
The loss is estimated at $7500 partially
covered by insurance.
Messrs, Frederick O. Viele and
Harry A. Hilbert compose the firm,
which trades as F. O. Vide and Co.
YOCNHSTEKS STALE REAL PONY
SHOW
Over two hundred persons witnessed
a remarkably fine pony show conduct
ed by little lots at Fallslon on Satur
day afternoon. Despite the fact that
Doth the steeds and promoters were
i diminutive the publicity end had been
played up well, to that a ho t of grown
up* were attracted by the etithusiuam
of the viyiilihil horsemen and ladies.
Once (he show was on there was no
scarcity of “pep”, or lack of faith on
the part of riders that their mounts
were the best. Dead heals, which ie
quired a second running to make a
sine decision, added to the excitement.
Mr. Theodore Forbes was starter and
Messrs. VV. Boyd Bell and I>. Sterretl
(Sittings who served as judges, chalked
up results as follows on the twenty six
ponies shown:
Small Ponies
Running Race—First “Mollyo” own
id by Norman Friei; s*cond “Ariadne”
Harriet Shriver; third “Minnie Ha Ha”
Harriet Shriver.
Jumping—First, “Mollyo”; second
“Minnie Hu Ha”.
Beauty—First, “Ariadne"; second
“Peanut", Kllen Merritt; third “Sweet
heart”, Viola Crumlish.
Large Ponies
Running Race—First “Queen of
Streten” John Follies; second "Francis
Scott Key” William Watson; third,
“Jill” Kllen Merritt.
Jumping First "Francis Scott Key"
second, "Don”, William Lancaster.
Beauty—First “Cocoa", Peggy Bak
•r; second "Francis Scott Key; third,
"Monte” Philip Close..
With this rivalry aroused as a fore
i miner some hot heals may be expect
ed when the tiny horses parade before
an admiring crowd at the Harford
Fair.
B WHITS SF.I/.K CAR AND VALI-
A BLK CONTKMTS
B. H. Sleeker ami Morris Korenreich,
oi Philadelphia, representulives of tin*
Alaska Fin Company of that city, met
with a thrilling experience en route
fr mi Philadelphia to Baltimore Satur
day night when highwaymen held them
up on the Old Forge Hill of tin* Coin*
wmgo Road and relieved them of then
money and valuables, completing the
job by diixing off with their ear and
its precious load.
A- told by the men themselves, short
I l> aft •! crossing Deer Creek bridge,
theji were passed by another car north
hound, the occupants of which were
apparently much interested in tin*
cai of th- Philadelphia men. Only a
few minutes later to their surprise they
we.e repussed hy the same car which
drove a short distance ahead of them
and stopped blocking the road. The
passengers of both machines alighted
Sleeker and bis companion soon find
ing themselves covered by a big auto
malic gun. Tin y were relieved of their
moil \ and watches and told by the
highwaymen that they wanted the liq
u.ti in the captured car. Advised that
(la* contents were furs and not liquor
(lie highway men after consultation de
tided Dial fins were just us good so
accordingly one id (hem got in the
Philadelphia ear ami drove it oil’, Ins
paitner timing their own.
Sleeker walked to Bel Air getting ;
in touch with Shciiff Sheiitlan ahoul
live thirty Sunday morning. As the
SherilT was just starting on ti huny
cull to Havre de Grace he directed the
man to the Stale Police and they wen*
soon on Uie trial. The time consumed
how t v. r, by Sleeker in w alking to Bel |
Air had given the bandits ample op
portunity to make their getaway.
About noon Officer Atkinson was suc
cessful in locating the slob n car near
Bynum Station where it hud been
abandoned, but no truce of the wanted
men could la* found.
It is unfoilunate that the Pbiladel
phiuns ditl not avail themselves of the
telephone at Kalinin instead of walking
to Bel Aii. A.ter an investigation the
State’s Attorney and officers are very
doubt .111 whether a holdup actually
did take place.
