It had Such a start when first seen that all efforts to extinguish the blaze proved of no avail and the planing mill and box factory, owned by the same firm, together with the immense lumber in the yards, (covering probably twenty-five acres), was in an incredibly short tunc, one mass ol fiaine. There being a stifiT wind blowing at the time, the fire was communi cated to adjacent buildings, and altogether there were fourteen dwell ings, mill office, electric power house, storage building (partially completed), two mills and a box factory, besides numerous barns, destroyed.

VOTKS, Hundreds of people from adjoin ing towns docked to teredo on learning of the tire. Two cars loaded with coal standing on the aide track of the P. <fet>. K. R.were burned. A great many persons lost the savings of years, in the way of household goods. Among those who lost household goods were John Hannah, Tom i Johnson, Joe Willis, Charles Mur ry and many others whose names we cannot now recall. Mr. Willis, who occupied Mrs. Thacker’s prop orty, sa\s Ins loss will amount to to about fcjoo.OO, as he had quite a quantity of hay and feed in the barn destroy ed. Wben the tire reached the Camden Interstate K y power house the power gave out and all street cars stopped One oar was left standing midwav between Kellogg and Central City.

M. Johnson lost, a i pocket book containing ss.no. lie I found the hook the next morning, but it contained no money. A great deal of household goods burned after having been carried sev ! oral hundred feet from the I timing buildings. Many dwellings could doubtless have been saved if the town had been supplied with water. The fire engines from Catletts burg and Huntington wore sent to the rescue, but after reaching here could do nothing ou account of there being no water supply Ccredo certainly should now take immediate steps to guard against a repetition of this terrible disaster, by providing some protection against the fire fiend.

During his traveling about and afterwards his campaign upon his claim, he encountered much had water, which, together with the severe heat, gave him a very severe diarrhoea which it seemed almost impossible to check, and along in June the case became so bad ho expected to die. One day one of his neighbors brought him oue small bottle of Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy ns a last hope.
