"Behold how Great a Matter a Little Fire Kindleth.” A CITY WITHOUT A FIRE DEPART MENT. Special to the Mercury. Decatur, Nov. 17.—Decatur to-day has waded through the ordeal of its fir.-t baptism of lire since the building boom commenced. The tire was first discov ered at a few minutes after eight o’clock this a. in. in Mr. Young’s stable on the alley in the rear of Bank street, It quickly spread to a millinery stole ad joining and several fruit stands which only served to feed the flames, and thence to Warrens restaurant. The of fice of Crane A: Brodix was next ignit ed and then the hardware store of Har ris & Watkins was consumed, and the flames swept on in their devouring path consuming the stores of Cohn, Lyons and Cartwright. The absence of a lire department left all property within reach of the destruc tive element at the mercy of the flames. The citizens worked In roically and re-, moved goods and valuables from the store houses in the path of the flames, out into the street, but as the fue gained strength the extreme heat of the burn ing buildings Bet the goods stored out side on lire, and a very valuable lot of merchandise was reduced to a smoulder ing pile of ashes on the street. The weather hoarding on the opposite side of the street was scorched and blackens ed, but the herculean ellorts of gallant citizens kept the tire from spreading. HOW THE BLAMES WERE CHECKED. The terrible headway made by the all devouring flames, alarmed every one in the adjoining vicinity, and the gentle men who have offices in the long row of new frame edifices extending from the alley adjoining Cartwright’s store, im mediately took the moving fever and the contents of each office was quickly trans ferred to a place of safety. While the fire was raging we noticed the only mode of fighting it was by throwing buckets of water, and the water for this use had to be hauled in wagons from the river. At Cartwright’s brick store the flames were stopped in their course by prop ping the wall and thus preventing the spread of the flames to the buildings on the opposite side of the alley. The tire was fought nobly here and the wall was kept drenched presumably on the prin ciple that water was an element not eas ily ignited. THE*CASUALTIES REPORTED. Taking into consideration the fierce ness of the dames, and the promiscuous falling of charred timbers and loose brick, the casualties reported were slight. A falling wall came within an ace of burying a gang of noble workers, but they all escaped except one old gentleman whose name was not reported, but who, fortunately was not seriously hurt. Jim Howard was seriously injured by jumping from a second story window. A darky was wounded in the leg by the discharge of a cartridge in the hard are store. A couple of kegs of powder in this store was also exploded but did no dam* beyond shattering the walls. At Cartwrights corner the fire was sub* i dued, and then all Decatur got to talking about having a fire engine and a trained tire department. Our .Sf<n;u f^AOUtiry, Huntsville at last has a steam laundry. It is with no small degree of pleasure that we rail the attention to the card of Messrs.
