Last Saturday about two o'clock fire broke out in the rear of C. H. Mason's livery barn in a house that Mr. Mason used as a dwelling. The house was connected with the barn by a wood I shed, all of which was destroyed togeth er with a small dwelling recently built by G. S. Merriam. Fortunately there was no wind. Had there been the least wind, there is no doubt that the largest part of the town would have been de stroyed. By the heroic work of citizens the house belonging to G. S. Merriam, oc cupied by J. T. McAneny, was prevent ed from taking fire. Had this house caught fire two others belonging to Mr. Merriam, one of which is his residence, would have burned, together with the building in which the Echo is located. No effort could have saved them. Burn ing embers set fire to a house belong ing to Mrs. Hives twice, but the tire was put out before it had made any headway. The writer was the tLird man at the fire and was preceeded but a few sec onds by Dr. W. M. McCoy. The name of the first man we do not know. For at ast three or four minutes after we i arrived the tire had not yet made its way through the roof. Having caught between the ceiling and roof from a stove pipe. half dozen buckets of water would easily have put the fire out, but it was five or ten minutes be fore any water could be had. The tank from which the town is supplied through a three-quarter inch pipe, was I about empty. There were a half doz en water hydrants near the scene of the fire but none of them would run. It is a well known fact that the water system of this town consists of a small tank elevated about twenty feet above »he surface of the ground from which the water is conveyed to the houses in a three-quarter inch pipe. There is no water main. The first twenty or thirty feet from the tank there is a two inch pipe, but all the balance of the water pipe Is three-quarter inch. If one con sumer is drawing a drink all the bal ance have co wait until he gets through, then each one must take his turn. If two open their hydrants at the same time the water trickles out in a feeble stream about half a3 large as a lead pencil. Trying to fight the fire with this kind of a supply is, of course, use less, and, as heretofore, the people just stood around and let the fire burn. The water that was used to prevent the house in which Mr. McAneny lived, from taking fire, was carried from the Wenatchee river. "liir Losses C. H. Mason"3 loss on barn and con tents was approximately one thousand dollars with MOO insurance. G. S. Mer riam on dwelling 1200. The Merriam house in which Mr. McAneny lived was slightly damaged which is covered by insurance. THE ST. LOUIS FAIR An Intere»tlns Letter From a Loavon worth lan The following from our fellow towns man was received too late for publica tion last week. As giving impressions of a Wasbingtonian of the St. Louis Fair it will bo read with interest. The suggestion made about the best tin. to visit the fair may well be worth heed ing. The letter was dated at Eureka. Kans., Mr. Adams' old home: I agreed to write a letter for the Echo regarding the World's Fair and ho it looked to a Leaven mat. I visit ed the fair for one week and have re turned to Eureka to spend a month vis- Isting relatives. We had a pleasant trip to the fair and back this far. without accident or delay. The weather was very nice while we were at the fair and the sights are certainly grand. The effect of the magnificent buildings, well kept grounds, and sparkling cascades is cer tainly beyond description with the pen. The only drawback la that thirty per cent, or more, of exhibits, are not in place yet, and many of the foreign buildings aw not open. In fact some of the stato building* are not complete. For these reasons I would advise Wash ington people who contemplate visiting the fair not to come nrui! late fill.- for I it will he a month before the fair in complete, and by that time the nights will be so hot that people from the Evergreen state could not enjoy them selves. lam proud to say that the j Washington state building is the favor- ; ite, especially with the foreign people. ! It is the only state building that is what one would expect, as in itself indicating the leading industry—lumbering. Wash- ' ington material was used mostly in its construction, and in such a way as to attract the attention of the beholder to the variety and size of the timber. Huge sticks, ami broad planks are used, such only as can be gotten in this state. In this way the building is made an exhibit in itself. Many of the state buildings are larger and costlier, bat none are more appropriately built with a view to making the best use of the i money expended in the building. Near ly ail the state buildings, in fact ninety per cent of them, are built of a kind of plaster that is called staft. lirst largely j used in the Chicago exposition. Though they are different in design there is enough similarity in all of them to soon i make them tiresome to the eye. I would say for the benefit of the Clinton. lowa, people that lowa hat one of the finest furnished buildings. It contain! the largest ami best pipe or gan to be seen on the grounds. I no ticed that the decorating of the build ing, which by the way was very beaut i ful, was done by William Andrews from Clinton. Washington will certainly win the prize on her display of forest, fish and game, also c-n cold storage fruit. The fruit from most of the state 3 lying be side of ours puts you in miml of the old adage about small potatoes in Ireland. Our mining exhibit is very good but could be greatly improved by Leaven worth people and I wish to urge them to secure 50 to 73 pounds of specimens of the Blewett ore and ship by express, collect, to Elmer E. Johnson, commis- i sioner. Col. Mclntyre can be prevailed I upon to send some of his best sample* as they would '■■ taken good care of and returned, and there is no such ore shown as that ore U.

Mr. Fred L. Brender who has for several years conducted a successful dairy business in the Cbunistiek valley near Leavenworth, told us hist Satur day that be hail named his place the Nino Deer Creamery. The name is taken from a mountain near his place. Years ago when the first white settlers came to this country there roamed around this, mountain, a herd of deer, consisting of nine head, which were chased for years.and often shot at.but it seems without effect. Tho herd seemed to bear a charmed existence. •No one was ever able to bit one of them. They could be seen almost any time, and al ways on this particular mountain. Fi nally, some five years ago they disap peared, and have not been seen since. We have Rotten oil the subject.thoujrh. We want to tell you about Mr. Br.n der's butter dairy.

("1 l»M» <•■ Him \> al.r It will on) be a question of time when the large Cat directly across the Columbia river from Wenatchee will be irrigated. W. G. Steward, U. S. civil engineer, with headquarters in Spokane, was in the city last week gathering irrigation data ami measur ing the flow of the Wenatchee, Entiat and Che rivers with i\ view of har nessing the power for government irri gation purposes. Mr. Steward is an old friend of L. V. Wells, and he slated in a course of con versation "with Mr. Wel!s that at no distant day water would be flowing on ail the Cat between Wenatehee and Rock Island in Douglas county, and that electric power for that purpose would be transmitted from one of the small streams ilorring into the Colum- "' btep In that v soon. Mr. Steward is an enthusiast on irri gation, having had the great govern ment irrigation project in hand ■' Salt River, Arizona, which is now in course of construction. There a darn is being built SoO feet high which will not only furnli water direct to the land below the same, but transmit electric power twenty miles away to operate gigantic pumps which will irrigate thousands of acres of arid lands. The fiat in question is as fertile, and would produce as well, as any land in the Wenatchi valley, if It was irri gated, and if the government takes hold of the project it will soon be grow ing the famous big red apple.—Ad j vance.
