DYNAMITE CHECKS THE BLA Three Buildings Blown I'p To Subo The Flames. The most disastrous fire in the histc of Warrenton swept away about fc bl?x?ks Monday night, destroying residence? anil business houses, a was not checked until two frame bui ings and the annex to Warren (?re Hotel, a brick structure, were dynan teil to check its further progress. An unverified r?>|xirt said ?iat t conflagration was caused by the carele throwing away of a burning ?-igaret end. The total damage was estim?t? at |75,00O,with about ?VM-.i-xHiinsuranc The blaze started in Bradburn's li ? ?ry stable, a short distance oast of tl Warren Green Hotel. A high soul wind l?lew the llames toward Watorli and Winchester streets, which couver?. near the hourthouse. In a slmrt whl the buildings on both sides of thot streets were, one after another, ei veloped. Neither the roorthouM r? the jail was injured. Warren Groe Hotel, the leading hostelry, was save dy dynamiting the annex. Wher the tire spread beyond the li\ ery stable, and it was beyond tin- en trol of those who wer?- fighting it,?core of householders removed their housi' hold goods to places of safety, an among these were a numlior who, short while later, saw their resilience ?lestroyeil. At one time ttepostoflleawas threat cned.but before the flames had reach??? that point everything of value had beet removed. The buildings ?lestroyeil were Farm era' Hotel,unoccupied; Jennings' furni ture house, T. F.. Fattie's stor?' an? residence, and the residences of W. A, Garner, H. A. Garrett, Mrs. Ida Wall, Frank C.

Looking west ami south? west from Courthouse square all that remains of a once beautiful section is a heap of embers and crumbling walls. All the homeless are being made com? fortable, and every spared home main? tains an open door. While the good effects of the dyna? mite in arresting the progress of the fire are appreciated, yet the damage done by the explosion to those buildings which were s pareil by the tire is c?m siderable. Plate glass and other windows including the sash were broken in every building within a radius of five to six blocks. Militia still is guarding the household effects saved from the 25 buildings de? stroyed, which, owing to the downpour of Tuesday, were moved into the court? house.
