whole country side and thousands
awakened from sleep watched the fire.
The plant was In the center of a
well-to-do residential district and while
ten companies directed their bose on the
flaming structure, the others bent their
efforts toward saving the dwellings.
Householders were ordered out In their
nlghtclothes nnd household goods were
piled high on the streets out of reach
of the flames.
So well did the firemen work that
tho dwellings were saved, although in
many instances the paint was scorched
from houses and tongues of flames
shot through broken windows and ig

An hour after the fire started the
walls and the roof were tumbling In,
although the fire companies from Mt.

pouring tons of water Into tho struc
