0R0FIN0 IS NOW IN ASHES
(Continued from Page t)ne.) Creek the Only Barrier. Not until the «mall stream running through the town was reached could the flames be fought to any advantage. Brave lighters took their position in the stream, and brigades were on the alert to see that any brands crossing the creek were promptly extinguished. A constant stream of water was kept on the approach to the bridge by the bucket brigade, and the flames did not get beyond the stream. Nothing Is Saved. Aside from the slight insurance car ried by some of the firms little was saved from any of the buildings. The entire population worked with their every effort from the time it was seen that fighting the fire was useless. Valuables were carried out. Some had articles they especially cherished, and these were taken from the burning structures, but the valley Is so nar row that even after being carried out the goods could not be saved. House hold goods were carried high upon the hill for safety, and the tired populace struggling up the hill with more arti cles would see the effects of their labors wiped out by a single flash of the flames, as the wind would «give a spurt, and carry the Are to the dry grass on the hillside. Before any one could reach the scene the flames would lick up the articles and in a few mo ments they would be in ashes. Ars Homeless in Stnssts. While It was only the business sec tion of the city that burned it leaves a large proportion of the population homeless and dependent upon the goodness of their neighbors for shelter. Many of the business men had their dwellings as part of their places of business. Sitting rooms and kitchens were furnished In the back of the store buildings. Very few residences are left In the city and they are not nearly adequate to shelter the people. Agent W. J. Jordan of the Northern Pacific this morning was called upon and gave permission to use the Oro fino depot for shelter of the women and children. The large public hall is still standing, and beds will be spread LEWISTON-CLARKSTON INTER- STATE FAIR October 8,9,10,11,12,13 Six Days' Entertainment.

Expressions were heard from a num ber of the leading business tnen of Orofino this morning, after the excite ment had somewhat subsided, and they are of the general opinion that Oro fino will rebuild. Shine of the mer chants will take Immediate steps to open their places of business in a tent. I,. Stannus stated this morning that he would plan to build a brick struc ture on his property at once. Men Moved to Tear*. Some of thu people of Orofino will be left practically bankrupt by the fire. They were just starting in busi ness and had scarcely enough Insur ance to cover their indebtedness.

Patrons of the skating rink will In the future have only the evening hours for the pleasure. The rink will be open from 7:30 to 10:30 each even ing, and the floor will be for all skat ers young and old. These regulations were made to met present conditions. The pastime continues to be the popular fad of the season, and under the constant practice, the young peo ple of the town are fast developing into proficient skaters. Present ac commodations are not sufficient to ac commodate the demand, and the man agement has some extensive Improve ments in contemplation. Meanwhile, the devotees of the sport are not los ing any time, and the rink is thronged every session. 8chleich«r'a celebrated Grapee 20c a basket at Russell's Grooery. WHERE COTTON BL0880MS GROW Another Dsmonstration That Walla Walla Leads. That Walla Walla valley soil and climate Is about right was demonstra ted again this year, when Mrs. W. H. Alexander, who resides In Pleasant street, planted a small field of cotton last spring, says the Union. The seen immediately took root, grew and flour ished until now there is a miniature cotton field in full bloom in her gar den. The bolls are said to be perfect In every respect and the stalks are about two and one half feet in height, which Is remarkable for a country not given to cotton production. The ex periment, made purely out of curiosity, proved to be entirely satisfactory, and the tjme may come when the darkles will be singing In the cotton fields pf the Walla Walla valley. Pietures taken at night at Gomond's. Wanted a Darker Shade. Jacob Hits has a story of a little lad who shines shoes for a living. This boy goes to a mission Sunday school, and was keenly disappointed when, at Christmas time, his gift from the tree turned out to be a copy of Browning's poems. Next Sunday, however, the superin tendent announced that any child not pleased with his gift could have It ex changed. Jimmie marched boldly to the front with his. "What have you there. Jimmi»?" "Browning." "And what do you wapt In ex change?" "Blacking." Why suffer with that corn when Moxley'a Dead Shot Corn Curt will remove it.

FICHT IS ON IN KEYSTONE STUTE PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 28.—Penn sylvania's unique campaign Is now on in earnest and it Is proving fully as exciting as was forcasted earlier In the summer. The managers of the regular republican organization are using every effort to inject as much national politics into the contest as possible. "Stand bv Roosevelt" and "Stand by the Tariff" are the rallying cries. Outside speakers are being urged to come Into the state with the hope that the contest may be natiallsed as much as possible. Speaker Cannon and several other leaders of national prominence have consented to visit the state, but they will confine thetr speech making to the close congressional dis-v trlcts. The Lincoln republicans and the democrats, who have joined In a fusion ticket, declare that it is purely a state fight, and say that the effort of the regular republicans to introduce na tional questions Is for the purpose of diverting the attention of the voters from the real Issue, which Is. "Shall the state organization formed byQ uay and passed down to Penrose be per mitted to control the politics of the state ?" Opinions differ as to what the out come will be. The Lincoln republicans and the democrats won a notable vic tory In Philadelphia last fall and they hope to duplicate that victory In the state this year. But they are not as harmonious now as they were In the local campaign last year and some close observers doubt If they can carry the state. Nevertheless, it Is an ex ceedingly interesting fight. Each side wants it to appear that President Roosevelt Is in sympathy with It. The president is to visit the state next week, going first to Harris burg to attend the dedication of the . new state capitol and then to York to attend a county fair. So far he has i remained strictly neutral is the fight and it is regarded as unlikely that he will touch upon politics In hts address, es in the state next week.
