Wednesday morning at three o'clock when dead sleep had come to all homes the alarm of Are waa given on Front street, and it was soon known that Lae'« barber shop was ablaze and the Morri son House end the Rock saloon serious ly threatened. No town responds to a Are alarm more quickly than Black foot. In a few moments a crowd bad gathered and the battle against the Aames began. The barber shop was totally destroyed and the Morrison House and Rock saloon were badly damaged. The tops of those buildings were burned. Lee, the barber, saved a chair from Ills shop, that was all. In the Morrison House, much of the furniture, furnish iugs. carpet«, etc., were badly damaged by water, smoke aud heat, lu the saloon most of the flitures ware saved but some of them badly damaged. The Mor rison building and the saloon building were covered by sufficient insurance to make good the damages, but there was no insurance on the furniture aud sup plies in either building. It I« not known whether the barber shop was insured or not. The fire was evidently the work of an iuceudiary. There was not a stove in the barber building nor a lamp left burning. The hour of tbe Are was the one usually chosen for tbe Ceod't work. Fortunately it was a calm still morn ing or the entire block might have burned. No town in the state has an unorganized brigade that can fight fires like Ulackfuot'*. It is prompt to respond to all alarms and fights with a desperation of do or die. It is unfor tunate that the town is not supplied with better facilities for fighting fires, but it will have them in due course of time. Until then, all praise be given to those who fight so bravely and at such disadvantages. over and ants. in tion Hack lbs SaaM Way.
