her, it will be remembered, Mr. and
Mrs. Miller and their three child
ren left Pine for a short visit to
their former home in the east. They
came here on account of the health
of the little ones, having lost a child
about three years ago. Their
home visit proved to be unusually
sad, death claiming two more
children—3 year-old Bessie and
1-year-old Theodore breathing
their last within less than an hour
and a half, on February 16. One
daughter now remains to the be
reaved parents—Viola, about 11

and gold and currency, took they,
to the number of many ducats.
They were the whole thing last
Friday night at the opera house.
Nearly everybody was there, and
was glad of it. This was manifest
by the encouraging applause which
greeted the boys and girls of the
High School who, individually and
collectively, entered into the forma
tion of "Topp's Twins."
The young folks did themselves
proud, each and all of them; and
more especially when it is remem
bered that they had very little time
in which to rehearse their parts.
They began about one month ago,
meeting twice for practice the first
week and three times a week after

play—about eleven rehearsals in

boys over $100 clear with which to

The boys are under great obliga

sisted in the venture. The former
realize this, and, in token of their
appreciation, the young ladies were
given an outing last Sunday, Mrs.
J. W. Nieukirk chaperoning the
party to Canyon Creek. Those
participating were James Pence,

Discovered and Extinguished Before
Making Headway.
Smoke was seen issuing from the
roof of Goddard's saloon Saturday
afternoon, No blaze could be seen
and it required considerable search
to locate the seat of the fire.
A crowd quickly gathered, form
ing a bucket, axe and ladder
brigade. Quite a stiff breeze was
blowing, and had the fire gained
much headway it is doubtful if any
building in the block could have
been saved—at any rate between
the alley and Front street.
The fire was found to be in a
sawdust-filled partition, where a
door had recently been cut through
and other alterations made. After
being located it was extinguished
without difficulty. How it origin
ated is not known.
