What might have been a serious blaze was averted Sunday evening by hte prompt response of the fire depart ment. At about 6 o'clock as Frankie Allen was passing the J. J. McCormick resi dence he heard an explosion in the back part of the house and at the same instant saw a bright light shining through the windows of the kitchen. Knowing the occupants of the house to be absent, he ran home and told what had occurred. An alarm was sent to the fire station and the depart ment was speedily at the scene of the explosion. The firemen forced an en trance and found that the back boiler of the range had exploded. The range was badly shattered and the burning coals were scattered about the kitchen. These were extinguished and further danger to the building was averted. The cause of the explosion remained a mystery until explained by Mr. Mc Cormick. He said he knew that J. D. Losekamp and his sister, who oc cupy the house, were absent and fearing that the water in the pipes of the boiler of the range would freeze, he obtained entrance to the house and started a fire in the range and also in the furnace and then left. The very thing he sought to prevent had al ready occurred, the water in the pipes was frozen solid and the sudden gen eration of steam in the boiler caused the pipes to explode. The range was damaged beyond re pair and the force of the explosion broke almost every winow in the kit chen. One of the lids of the range was blown through the ceiling and another was forced through a win dow and into a neighbor's yard. MR. ANNIN NOT A FARMER. G. W. Storer Should Have Credit for Big Crop. In last Friday's Gazette was pub lished an interview of General Freight Agent Moore of the Northern Pacific and published in the Pioneer Press which gave Mr. J. B. Annin, the Columbus merchant the credit of rais ing an exceptionally large crop of vegetables. As Mr. Annin is in the mercantile business and not a farmer, he desires to place the readers right and give the credit to whom it is due. Mr. G. W. Stover is the successful vegetable raiser as the following letter from Mr. Annin shows: "Upon reading an article in Fri day's 'Gazette' under the heading of 'What Montana Does,' I was surprised to find that I had developed into a successful farmer. Not wishing to take any credit that does not belong to me I wish to say for the benefit of the readers of the Gazette that I fur nished the figures as given by Mr. Moore and that they are approxi mately correct. The vegetables were raised, however, by Mr. G. W. Storer on his ranch about ten miles east of Columbus and the Columbus Mercan tile company marketed the same at Livingston, Bozeman, Big Timber and Aldridge. Yours truly, "J. B. Annin.
