Tho Firemen Worked Hard and It
Took Two Hours to Extinguish
the Fire Tho Building Fully In
sured Amount of the Loss
Last night at 1145 oclock an alarm
from box2 called the fire department
to the corner of Second South and
West Temple streets where great vol
umes of smoke could be seen pouring
from the windows of the Oregon Short j I
Line building It was only a few mIn i
utes from the time the alarm was sent j i
In till both departments were on the
scone and had several lines of hose laid i
ready for use The first entrance was
made by breaking the iarge plate glass i
in the door of A H Boxrud Cos i I I
Several firemen were quickly in the
room but the smoke was so thick and
the place so dark that nothing could be i
discovered The fumes from the
burning wood were so dense that it was
impossible for any man to stay In It
more than a minute or so at a time I
The hood wasplaced on one of the fire
men and he penetrated far Into the
interior of the store but not a sign of
the flames could be seen The upper I
part of the building and the rear were
being searched at the same time with 1 I i
the same success
In the meantime Chief Devine with
some of the boys were exploring the
basement through the windows but
I I nothing could be seen in that place but
smoke An attempt was made to go
Into the basement but the smoke was
so thick that the firemen were forced
back In a few moments The back door
of the Kansas City Smelting companys
place was broken open and the firemen
groped their way along the floor In
search of the fire A roaring and crack
ling sound was heard directly under
them and the floor was burning hot
This was undoubtedly where the
fire was and ar ax was celled for
in order to chop through the floor and
reach the blaze Before work was
commenced on the floor there was a
crash and flames suddenly shot up
through the floor about 30 feet from
the door The hose was run Ji and the
flames quickly reduced until nothing
but a glow could be seen The axe was
then used and a small hole was cut
In the floor through which the flames
made their exit I was a dangerous
piece of work which now presented it
self to the firemen but there was not
one who faltered In his
duty They
made their way along the floor on
hands and knees nearly suffocated
with the smoke and began to tear up
the floor to gain an entrance through
which they could work
work They knew
that the whole floor beneath them was
burning and In one place further
ahead it had already fallen In and
they did not know what instant the
floor under them would give way and
plunge them all Into a raging furnace
Then it was that a report was circu
lated that the Utah and Montana Ma
chinery company which vas next door
south had powder stored In the base I
ment this was subsequently disproved
This added ra new danger but work 1
never ceased and a hole was soon made
through which the nozzle of the hose
Was pushed and a stream of water
poured upon what flames could be I
reached A few minutes later a large
aperture was made in the floor and the
basement opened to view The whole 1
interior seemed to be In flames and the
water was turned on immediately
A ladder was then placed down to the I
floor of the basement and some of the
jI men went down It and played the hose
upon the fire which was now plainly In
view It was but a few minutes from I
the time the opening was made until
the basement was full of firemen fight
ing the flames which were rapdly burn I
ing the ceiling above them I was not I
long before the fire was practically out
but for a long time after i would break
out in pots among the joists in the
ceiling One of the peculiar circumstances
stances was that the flames seemed to
run along the asbestos covering of the I
seam pipes as if they were made of
canvas and were not supposed to be
S fireproof I i
In the meantime all the doors and
windows were opened s that some of
the smoke could get out When enough I
of the fumes had been expelled to al
low a man to breathe in the interior of I
the building an examination was made
of the premises to locate if possible
the cause of the fire At first it was
thought that It originated in the steam
pipes being overheated but this was
later disproved i
There was no furnace In the build
ing as all of the heat is obtained from
the Dooly building All of the condi
tions seemed to point conclusively to
one point the furnace In the
assay sam
pling room In the rear of that part of
the building occupied by the Kansas
City Smelting and Refining
Ciy Smelng ad company
The floor on the west side of the assay
furnace was burned through and a
large opening was made by the flames
at that place What appeared to be the
hood and a stand containing the chem
Icals and other articles used in asoay
ng were overturned and had fallen
I partly through the floor
No other place in the building was
found where the flames had burned
through the floor and aa examination
made of the timber In the flooring
seemed to point to the fact that the
flames started on top of the floor and
wcrked downward Probably under the
trick floor around the furnace There
was nothing In the basement whatever
that could burn until part of the floor
fell In I was a remarkable fire In
that I was n long time before It could
be locate the smoke making it impos
sible to see or live In the building and
no way was found practicable to reach
the part of the basement In which the
BareS were located
Chief DevIne and his men deserve
credit for the efficient manner in which
they worked under the most trying cir
cumstances I a over two hours be
fore the last sparks were extinguished
building but It was a close call to the whole
The building was erected last spring
by Messrs Chambers Mackintosh and
Dooly at a cost of 73000 The large
and substantial structure is amply in
sured to cover the loss which will
amount to several thousand dol
lars The chief items of loss
tp the building or rather the I
north half of I are broken plate
glass doors and footlights and damag I

Customs That Are Itittle Known to
the Kbrtherner
I I Few indeed are the pleasurabl ex
t citemculs of the Crackers life and
yet he has some fete days and boil
I days Paramount among these are the
I Cane erindin and Sugarbilin
Most of them have a cane patch of
greater or less extent according to
t the number of his stock cattle and
j j the children big enough to assist and
I the extent to which he can overcome
his chronic Indisposition to labor Along
t I in November and December the grind
I Ings begin and usually go in rota
i tion so that the linked sweetness may
j j be long drawn out writes a correspondent
spondent from St Petersburg Fla to

is above all things hospitable rc
1 or more razorbacks yield up the
ghost a plentiful supply of grits and
I I sweet potatoes are on hand and the
larder is ready For some days before
cutting actually begins the Cracker
is busy setting up his mill and fur
nace The whole affair Is primitive In
the extreme A pine sapling with just
I i the right crook in It is hitched at one
1 end to a pony the other is fastened to
two small upright rollers between
I j which the cane Is crushed While
j the pony steadily treads his crlcle
three or four sticks of cane are fed
I to the mill The thin greenish juice i I
i i runs Into a rude wQoden trough which
conducts It to a barrel covered with
j a gunny sack which serves as a
strainer The chimney and furnace
Into the flat top of which the large
iron boiler or caldron is set are rudely
fashioned of clay After five or six
hours hard boiling and skimming the
syrup is done and for a few minutes
all is excitement as the firebrands are
raked out from the fUrnace and the I
boiler is emptied of its saccharine conI I
tents The sirup is a clear amber and 1
of delicious flavor and just a few mo
ments overboiling would change I to
sugar for which your true Cracker
has little use the sirup having a much II j
greater financial value The skim I
mings are all carefully put in a clean I
barrel where they soon ferment and
make a kind of beer they call I
and which with ace becomes highly
intoxicating Well the Cracker work I
steadily for him for some days know j

and the air they play must be an

monotonous jangle on a few notes and

large but 16 can dance at once and
they are all in one set two couples

Is a desire which has yet only reached
the stage of tentative suggestion that
