DESTROYED BY EIRE (Continued from page 1.) t lure of a small explosion. Mr. Clin ton and J. tV. Paris, who live in the | lower part of town, were both up in an instant and when they rushed out found that the part of town in which they lived was already filled w'ith smoke, which the theory is had been escaping for a couple of hours through crevices, as the smoldering went on. The fire company was on hand at once and did splendid work. For a time it looked as if the Hotel Buhl, the Olson blacksmith shop and the Olds & Overbaugh carpenter shop would be destroyed, but although those buildings all lay in different di rections, the fire boys stj,. distributed their efforts as to save them all. Burn cinders were found all over town. One of Dr, McCluskey's new residence pro perties, two and a half blocks from the flames, was on fire twice and a partly burned chip was found in the I yard of Aloph Johnson, three-fourths of a mile from town. Although the fire company worked heroically, they could not prevent the fire from consuming the Hopkins & Snodgrass frame building next door in which the Hudson Electric Supply company had headquarters. From , this the flames spread into the two room one-story frame house owned by R. C. Dodge of Portland, and occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Ketchum and family and into the five-room two story frame dwelling occupied by C. A. Iden and family and also owned by Mr. Dodge. The families escaped with part of their household effects. The opera house was valued at $5100 and insured for $3600 The losses to the other property cannot he definitely stated, as it is not known whether insurance was carried, but it is considered a conservative estimate to say that more than $10,000 worth of property was destroyed. The opera house was used as an armory for Company K, and the lockers with a supply of target cart ridges were destroyed, Mr. Clinton said yesterday that he personally could not rebuild the opera house but it might be rebuilt by some one else. It is not known whether other owners will rebuild or not. The people of Buhl, while express ing regret at the occurrence point out that the loss will not make as much difference with the appearance of the 1 ■ town as it would have done a few months ago. Among the new buildings put up within the present summer or now in the course of construction, are the Gem State Lumber company of fice, the Buhl Grain and Produce com pany elevator, the addition to the Buhl Mill & Elevator company store house, the the Laird department store build ing, the Mounce & Mahachek building, the Buhl Hardware company building; the Lynch building; the Thomas Clin ton building, also a second Clinton building just started on lots bought from Patton & Wilson; the City Gar age and Plumbing building, and the Monroe building. New fronts have been put on the two Earp buildings, and the J. G. Sloan building, and addi tions are under way on the Buhl Ho tel and the City Hotel. In addition many residences have been built or are being built. We wish to thank our neighbors and friends for their kind remembrance in helping us in our loss, caused by fire, Saturday morning, July 29. Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Wright.
