A lot of paper had been swept out by the boys in the grocery department late in the afternoon and by some means caught fire after the employees had all left the store. Mr. Da vis Cantlty, who rooms about two blocks from the store, hap pened to raise the shade in his j room a id discovered the fire, which had caught the floor of the back platform. He hastily put on his clothes and hurried to the store and subdued the flames in a very few minutes thus preventinf a very disastrous fire. There had been a fire at the place where the paper was swept in the morning and it is svpposed that it caught from fire that had smoldered there all day.
