Ahont 4 o'eladk vesterdav morning
people living in the vicinity of Milita

and aroused from slumber by tbe cry
of fire. i Dense volumes of smoke were
issuing from the one-story brick build

occupied by J. H. Humphrey & Son's
grocery. August Rehm, CD. Me-

possible to get into It to save auy of

church and with his left hand rang
the bell a few moments to arouse the
nennle to a sense of their danger.
Seeing that it was useless to attempt
to save the building or stock, every ef
fort was directed toward saving the
adjoining ouiidings, wnicu was ac
cnmnlislied after an hour or more of
very hard and careful work ou tbe part
of a few who worked at a great dis
advantage from the fact that water
waa verv aearce and no tools were to
be had to work with. The building
of West & Co. on the north and Henry
Ohlen's building on tbe south (both
brick; were on ore at aiuereui umes,
but were ssved with slight damage to
thn walla and fronts. Tha burned
building was completely gutted, the
only part left intact being the brick
front projecting cornice held op by
two iron columns, mis was consia-

was from the north, which was ex
tremely fortunate. Had it been from
the south the West & Co. and August
Rehm two-storv buildings on the
north could not have been saved and
Eiobably the whole group of four

As to the origin of the fire no one
seems to have a definite idea. Mr.
Humphrey says that when they left
tbe store about 9 o'clock the evening
before there was some fire in the stove
as they usually left it, with the door
wide open, tb keep until morning.
The very dense smoke iu the room
when tbe fire was first discovered is
evidence that it must have been smoul
dering several hours and made it ut
terly impossible to see jurt where tbe
fire was or bad begun to burn, but it
is supposed by many that In some way
the floor became ignited by fire from

A man named Joe Morgan of Weir
City was shot through the head and
killed Monday afternoon by one of the
French brothers, a party of traveling
horse racers. The affair occurred on
the race track between Scammou and
Weir and the difficulty arose over the
fact that Morgan, who bad been cho
sen stakeholder, refused to turn over
the money for the reason that the win
ner bad not been fully agreed upon.
The Frenches became very angry and
wbile attempting to take the money
from Morgan revolvers were drawn
and several shots exchanged. French
admitted that he killed Morgan. A
man named Stoker was also arrested
with the balance of the offending par
tie. It is said that while Morgan lay
dying the Frenches stood over him
with drawn pistols and took tbe money
from his body that had been put up
on the races.
Peraonsl feeling was wrought up to
a wonderful degree in Scamicon and
Weir over tbe killing and excitement
ran high for a while.

We suppose the Courier man means
to say in tbe above that the outside of
the jail is to be covered with bo tier
Iron, thoiifrh he miffht have meant tha
outside of tbe county. The statement
is ridiculous st least, xne lacws ine
commissioners have ordered the jail
