George Conrad was working with his lights In the pool hall when thoj explosion occurred, lie saw at once that he could do nothing to put out tho fire and so gave tho alarm. A large number responded and succeeded in confining the flames to the four wooden, struc tures. The fire on tho north burnt to Gv J. Wagner's saddlery sljop, which is in a' brick building, to the south to Pelot's grocery store, also in a, brick building. They also suc ceeded In saving nearly everything movable in all the buildings except the pool hall. The pool hall building was a onc- story frame owned by L. Sunder- brlnk and occupied by Geo. Con rad and Joe Pauling as a pool hall. The building was valued at $f000 and injured for $400. The con tents were a complete loss, about. $200. The postof flee and barbershop ad joining were owned by J. H. Wcbc Bel, They were valued at $600 and insured for $400.
