Blaze at Tipple.
Fire originating from short circuited
electric wires caused damage which
will amount to several hundred dollars
to the tipple of the Stafford mine at
Baxter Saturday afternoon. Fortunately
but two men were in the mine
at the time the blaze was discovered
and they were hauled out before any
of the hoisting apparatus was endangered.
A large bin holding several
I tons of coal, and situated in the tipple,
was afire several times but by the efforts
of the fire fighting force, was
saved. The firo will not affect the
operation of the mine, since a force
of men was Immediately put to work
to repair the damage.

ail the players of the Baxter
band, has been built by the Traction
