J. C. Marcy's Home Burned.
The home of Col. J. C. Marcy
was burned Monday morning
about 10 o'clock, together with
nearly everything which the
venerable lawyer had in the world.
The fire started from a gasoline
stove and as the ColonelJrelated,
it was all his own fault. He had
started the gasoline stove, light
ing two burners. One went out
and as the Colonel's eye sight is
poor, he did not notice thrtt
about a quart of gasoline had
escaped. When he struck a match
the flame shot high to the ceiling
and the old man tried to smoth
er the flames with bed quilts. It
was all to no avail. Mrs. Marcy
seeing the ffre started to rush
into the house but the Colonel
prevented her doing so. The
firemen i-esponded quickly to an
alarm which was sent in, and
saved the structure from burning
completely to the ground. The
house is owned by Jos. Roach.
A subscription paper was passed
among the spectators and was
