Fulling In this he ran acoss the. street to station one and tapped Upon the doors and the men responded with the chemical. While the apparatus was on the scene some one turned In a general alaim. The lire, which fortunati ly was iliseovoiod early, originated from the wires of the telegraph messenger box, the wires being uncovered where they came out of the door and setting lire to the woodwork.

This addition will bo built in the rear. Among other recommendations which the captain has made are additions to tho picsent administration building. This building is at ptesunl ablo to accommodate j tin1 iiuslncss wtn the number ot men now stationed heio but when the regiment ar rives It will be too small. The present water capacity Is not very l uge ami It is expected that another water tower will be built In the vicinity of the target range. This tower will supply water to lie used for various purposes besides cooking and drinking water. The water for the latter uses will be supplied from the present tower. Ilccommendit lions are also made for a stable for the hand horses and that the stables which were burned In October, U"-', be rebuilt. The captain also plans to have a modern veterinarian hospital built at the garrison. A board of olllcers have met tor this pur pose of late and icportfd very fuvoiably on the matter. Another plan of the cap tain Is to build separate blacksmith shops for the tioops. Although the appioprlation for all this work has not yet been approved by Con giess. It Is a known fact that It will be parsed as it Is the Intention to make this post one of the finest In the service. It is expected that tin headipiai ters, baud and second squadron of the l.'th cavalry will leave Fort Myer, Va.. as soon as the weather la re will i rmlt of their pitching tents. When they arrive it will make the population of tile garrison over l.f)u men and the post will lie as large, except In the nrea of the ground It covers, as Fort l.iloy, Kansas, at prisent the largest post in the service. The woik on the barracks for the troops now at Fort Mycr will begin In a few wei ks by the contractor. Their stables are about completed and the only thing to lie done is the laying of vitrified brick. OLD LAKE CAPTAIN. Death of .Norman V. Ilstes, Who Spent Ills Life nu I he Water. Capl. Norman F.

Tho grounds upon which they basi the ii claim aro as follows: When the count was com pleted the di mocrats claimed that but 1H4 straight republican votes were cast, wlilln the republicans ussert that there were 21S voles to tho credit of their party. The dif ference of 31 votes the democruts claim were counted twice and that a new count should bo taken. At last week's election T. K. Hopkins, republican was declared elected over H. X.
