fireman for a shiuglo mill Two or
three days beforo the approach of the
flames, which eventually destroyed that fl
section, liright and his family left for f
Forestville, and the next day all the men
employed about the place either followed
the example or made haste to reach their
homes. On lesviug, liright informed his *
men that the lire would awoep that way,
an 1 named them to lose no time in mak
i„g their escape. Having no property to *

saving the mill if posaihlc. He Ins a '*
