Fire was discovered last Friday ; morning, in the building next to the Odd Follows Hall, occupied by a hand laundry. A defective stove pipe, run- j ning through an attic caused all the ; trouble.

Last Weduesday evening, about 5 o'clock, an alarm of fire was turned in from St. Ann avenue. When the sharp tones of the fire bell brought the peo ple to the streets, a sheet of flame was seen shooting up into the sky near the "Finn" boarding house, that appeared to come from a big fire. Two com- ? panies of firemen and three or four hundred common people were soon on the ground. The gate valve at the 300 was opened, permitting the water from the Tread well water system to flow in to tho 5 iuch pipe that 'runs along the avenue. Two streams of water under heavy pressure soon reduced the flre, i which was all in a one-story frame building occupied by a number of Slavonians. The main part of tho building was badly charred, and the contents destroyed, but adjoining buildings and even a part of the one on fire were not injured, so we may con sider that our firemen did good work, The faot that there was no wind helped materially.
