McGiffin, in charge of the Mad ison branch of the American Cigar Cos., was in town Wednesday with a brand new Hudson auto with which he is in specting the growing crop in this sec tion. He expects to remove to Sparta next month when his headquarters will be transferred to that point. From the New York tobacco journals we learn that Louis W. Coon, who con ducts a chain of cigar stores in that city, has filed a petition in bankruptcy with liabilities of $9,000 and assets $3,000. Mr. Coon was born and reared in Albion and is well known to many of our readers. About 15 years ago he opened a cigar store at 320 Broadway, N. Y., and from the first conducted a very profitable business. Later two other stores were started at Whitehall street and lower Broadway, but re cently the high rents, cut prices and competition of the chain stores made the business a losing venture. ♦ Gollmar Brothers* Circus Enlarged. It is understood that the Gollmar Brothers Greatest of American Shows this year have undergone a general renovation in each and every one of the many departments, and from the monster exhibition tents to the cook tent everything is new, clean and up to-date, the only thing that has been retained being the trade mark and name “Gollmar Brothers,” which means everything first-class. Long trains of cars transport these immense shows entour this season, and the big gest and best combination of circus and menagerie attractions are presented, to say nothing of the numerous auxiliary novelties offered in conjunction with this immense circus. The Gollmar Brothers circus will be seen in this city Tuesday, July 25. The Bogart Destroyed by Fire. The Bogart, Mrs. Pauline Jacobus’ resort, located just beyond the north limits of the city in Albion, took fire and was totally destroyed Wednesday forenoon. The alarm was telephoned in and the fire apparatus gotten out quickly but when the location of the fire was discovered and being no water supply in reach, only the hook and lad der truck and firemen went to the scene. The blaze started in the roof, either from the chimney or sparks from the kitchen range, and when discovered was quite well under way. Neighbors were soon at hand, but when help f reached there from town the entire roof was a mass of flames and nothing could he done to save the building. Nearly all the household effects in the lower part of the house were removed, but nothing in the chambers could be reached. Fortunately the wind was from a direction that carried the burn ing embers away from the other build ings on the place, for everything was as dry as tinder and nothing could pre vent a clean sweep of the adjacent property. The building was soon con sumed and the brick walls crumbled in. The property loss will probably exceed $4,000 which is partly covered by an in surance of S2OOO on the buildings and $1,500 on household effects in the Albion Mutual Fire Insurance Cos. The fire has removed one of the land marks of this locality, for the property was originally a part of the Bardeen homestead erected about 45 years ago and an imposing farm residence. Some 15 years ago Mrs. Jacobus purchased the ten-acre plot with the home and converted it into a cozy resort known ias “The Bogart.” Here she conducted her Pauline Pottery Works and a re sort for Chicago people largely during the vacation months. The loss will fall quite heavily on this estimable woman as she had under negotiation the sale of the property to Doctor Knight, of Chicago, who desired to convert the place into a sanitarium, so we are informed. ♦♦♦ Twenty-five Years Ago.

Earl Adam Baum, who resides at 1300 Sharon street, Janesville, died sud denly Thursday afternoon about two o’clock. With his son Mark, Mr. Baum had been working on his farm in the country, and after dinner decided to drive back to the city. Having hitched up the horse he took his place in the carriage, but just as he started to drive out of the yard his heart failed and he expired while the horse was moving toward the front gate. His son Mark was standing at the gate ready to close it after his father had driven through, when he noticed that the elder Mr. Baum had lost his hat and that his head had fallen to one side. He was dead before his son could reach him. His sudden death will come as a shock to his many friends in Janesville and in the country. He was born in New York state 60 years ago and upon coming to J anesville about 20 years ago he engaged in the house moving busi ness. He has followed this occupation in connection with his farm work up to the present time. Besides his wife he is survived by his son Mark. Before moving to Janesoille the family were for some years residents of Edgerton.
