BLAME SOMEBODY; I MAYBE EARTHQUAKE Fire at Public School Building Mon day Afternoon Cauiei Excitement At shortly after I o'clock Mon day afternoon lire broke out on the roof of the Douglas public school building, 'toys and Inatructori. with chemicals, kept the blaze under con trol until the arrival of the Are de partment, when a few gallons of iialt water through the nozzle of the hone put the fire entirely out. The blaze was Aral discovered by boya working In the manual train ing room. The signal for fire drill was given and the school emptied of children in a little leas than sixty seconds. The children leaving the school had no Intimation that there waa any fire and everything was done in an orderly manner. But for the good work of those who used the chemtcala on the roof there is little doubt but that a very serious fire would have occurred. The boys and some of their Instruc tors got right at the base of the i blaze and emptied the tlyee extin guishers that are In the building and several more that were brought from outside source*. The Are was caused by sparks from the chimney. Upon examina tion It waa found that the whole top part of the chimney waa moved about an Inch and a half out of plumb. As there was quite a severe shock of earthquake felt here that same morning, the chimney may have been shifted by that. The chimney also burned out In the morning and the combination of the two thlngc may be responsible. The damage to the building, which is covered by Insurance, is estimated at less than one hundred dollars and consisted of shingles burned off. a roof laddor and some plaster and beaver board Injured by water. Many anxious parents rushed to the vicinity of the school house to see that their children got out of the building In safety. Their fears were set at rest when they aaw their young hopefuls running around the playgrounds as usual and not burn ed to 3 crisp, a* they had Imagined. After the fire was extinguished many of the pupils Joined In mop ping up the water. It Is said that one boy iim^ his necktie for the purpose, and sovcral their caps. A holiday being declared for the rest of the day saw the ond of a perfect day for the children. Tuesday there wac no school, as some repair work was necessary be fore a fire could bo built In the fur nace. but Wednesday morning ev erything started ac usual. FINE LOT OF PELTS Wm. fulhro, who recently bought out the Interest* of his partner, ("apt. P. Martin. In the Macrae fox farm, killed off the eighteen foxei with which the place waa stocked, late In January and has placed the raw furs thus derived In the hands of Taylor. Prury, Pedlar & Co., to ship either to the New York. 8t. Louis or London fur markets as they may :lrem best. Mr. Cathro has closed down the business for a time, and It !a likely before he resumes will pay a long deferred visit to relatives In Scotland. Mr. Cathro. who has studied fox -ani-hlng very losely during thelsat tlx years, ?tat** that his chief rea son for killing at the present time Is for complete renovation of tfie pens n order to eliminate entire losa of pupa and for the raising of Improved stock. These eighteen skins are either silver black or ailver gray, and the consignment Is one of the hand somest and most valuable that haa ever been shipped at one time from any of the numerous farms In the territory. One of the skins Is a magnificent silver black, and it would be hard for anyone In White horse to predict how much it will ultimately bring In the open market 1 when put up for sale. ?
