Many Sections of " Vermont Enveloped in Flames Which Are Eating Up the Heart of the Finest. Timber in the State. Thousands of Acres of Land Have Already Been Burned Over in the Central Part, of the State The Flames Are Now Subsiding, Montpelier, June 4, Forest fires in this vicinity have done an immense amount of damage to timber land and have destroyed several mills and other buildings. The flames were driven by the high., wind of yesterday afternoon with great rapidity, and the bands of firelighters in the threat ened districts could make but little head way against them. Last night this city was enveloped in a cloud of dense smoke which caused considerable apprehension with some people as the wind was blowing in the direction of Montpelier from the Worcester fire. The tire was confined, however, in that neighborhood to the Worcester mountain, although it was moving towards Mount Hunger, threatening to envelop that at any time. Already the flumes have swept over l,"i(K) acres of heavy timber land, which is valued at $ 30 an acre. The heav iest loser are C. C l'utuam & Son who have lost 300 'acres, Stowe Lumber Co., 230 acres, Baird & Ross, -100 acres and George Morse 500 acres.

Monisville's tire department was called out yesterday afternoon to protect the Ea!e Ledge road and the main highway leading to that place. The tire had cmne to within three miles of Worcester Cor ners last night, but with the going down of the wiud the spread was less rapid. Abbott's store at that place was on lire to day, having caught from sparks from the forest fire, but the blaze was easily extin guished. The people of that neighborhood have their goods packed ready for a hur ried departure It the wind comes up again as it did yesterday. Along the Motitpelier it Wells River R. II. line the fire made a rapid advance but contrary to the report the Goslaut mills vere not burned. The buildings there wera pretty well protected by building back tires about the cluster of houses in cluding the depot. The fire Is traveling toward Peacham pond which is three miles from Lanesboro, : and the territory is covered by a heavy growth of timber. j The damage caused by the fire is esti mated at ii.l.OOO, Mr. GoMant being the heaviest loser. Some of his best timber land, however, has not been touched. The tire has laid waste some second cut which was rapidly growing and in a few years uld be gone over again. Mark Mear's $10,000 strip was burned two-thirds over yesterday. The fire has spread through no less than a dozen different plots.

Mr. Kaull described to the council tha method of manufacture of bitumous maca dam, which Is a mixture of top rock and reliued tar. This is laid two Inches thick over a bed of small stone of about four in ches thickness. In the discussion that followed, Alder man Currier, at the request of Mr. Kaull, stated that the superintendent of streets in Worcester thought bitumous paving the coming street, but for heavy trallio there was nothing so good as a granite block paving. Mr. Currier asked if the Warreu Co. would be willing to give a good long guar antee? Mr. Kaull replied that was some thing the city would have to pay for. He stated that with a five years' guarantee the paving would cost about 1.") cents addition al per square yard or $-2. 2.".
