MacDONALD HOME IS SCENE OF FIRE Damage of Several Thousand Dollars Cause by Blaze at Treadwell Monday Evening Klre, caused by grease In a fry ing pan on an electric range bccom Ing overheated and igniting, burned the interior of the dwelling of Thos U. Mai Donald at Treadwell and most of the furniture on last Mon day evening, and resisted the efforts of members of the Treadwell Ore de partment to extinguish It for almost 1 an hour. Th<' loss to Mr. and Mrs. MacDonald amounts to several thou sand dollars, as not only was their furniture and household goods ? which wore exceedingly valuable ? destroyed, but much of their wear ing apparel as well, Mrs. MacDonald had put a fry ing pan with grease in it on the , range and stepped out to a neigh- i bor's house for a minute, and upon her return found the kitchen in a blaze. She made an attempt to smother tho flames without success. Mr. MacDonald was on the ferry boat coming from Juneau and reach ed the wharf at 6:30 Just In time to hear the Ore whistles blow. The house ?ls the property of the Alaska Treadwell Oold Mining Com pany and stands on the hill over looking the old baseball grounds. The building was not completely de stroyed but the interior wts burned ( and many hundreds of dollars would have to bo expended to put It in livable shape. One fortunate feature of the Are was tho fsct that n chest of silver- , ware and a few other valuable ar- ' tides were not in the house when It , burned, having been stored at the ; home of a neighbor during the re cent trip of the owner to the Sputh i and had not been taken home. Mr. and Mrs. Mai Donald are mak ing their home temporarily with Mrs. Livingstone Wernecko at Tread well. EASTER SERVICES ARE CONDUCTED Rev. E. C.
