Department Called Out by a Blaze at

From Tui'fdny'e Dully.
A flro'in the rear of Albert Degnor's
barn at his homo on South Fourth street
late yesterday nftornoon brought n re-
spouM ) from the department that con
sumed little time. The Mast and Qticou
Oity Hose companies and the Pioneer
Hook and Ladder company were on-
ronto before the alarm had finished
Hounding , but with all their hurry It
wns found that an impromptu organiza
tion of neighbors with garden hose nud
buckets had arrived ahead of thorn and
had the bla/o completely squelched ,
The damage to the property was
nothing whatever. It is believed that
n lighted cigar or cigarette stub or child
ren playing with matches were respon
sible for the tiro.
I wish to take this occasion to express
niy gratification and pride in the manner
in which the boys turned out to the fires
of yesterday and last week. Your
promptness and hearty co-operation
makes it a pleasure for mo to act as your
chief. 0. E. HAKTKOIIU.
Gold Discoved Near Wausa.
W. F. Murkle , living eight miles

He was digging n well in a draw last |
week when he struck upon a layer of
gold colored ere or rock. Ho brought a
mimplo of it to town nud took it in to
Jeweler Johusou to have it tested. Mr.
Johnson declares that the eainplo con-
tctltiB n big percentage of pure gold and
nays Mr. Murkle has struck a bonanza.
To make doubly sure of the matter the
V J sample wns forwarded to the state geol-
oglut at Lincoln for further tost. Mr.

was found when digging the well there
Is an amount of the ere deposited in the
same draw , nnd if It proves to possets
