THE WEATHER. Tonight and Saturday fair, warmer tonight. ('line. Weather Notes. Galveston. Texas, February, lath. The northwestern disturbance noted yesterduy has moved rapidly south eastward and is now central over Ok lahoma. It is attended by rain in wes tern Kansas and the Panhandle and Is causing unsettled weather through out eastern Texas. A second disturb ance has appeared over the north Pa cine roast, which Is causing rain in that section. Light tmow has fallen In the northwest anil northern portion of the Lake region. The temperature has risen In all districts east of the Itoejcy mountains anil is generally lower to westward. At time of report the telii Iterature in Texas ranged from 36 degrees at Atnarillo to 4 decrees ( n the lower roast. There Is very little cold weather in rear of ihe Oklahoma disturbance. The weather in this vi cinity will be unsetileil tonight ami probably fair Friday. The win. Is will shift towest or northwest on Friday when a moderate fall In temperature may be expected. River Forecast. There will ', .io Important charge in the Triili':-. Brazos and ('(dorado When the Jlre first started a line of hose was laid from the compress, but it had to be removed to let the south bound H. & T. C. passenger train pass. The Are company, however, soon had two lines of hose laid and began play ing two streams, and a H'tle later add ed two more.' The pressure, however, was poor and but slow progress was made, requiring much more time to put it out than If the pressure had been strong. Why the pressure was not better is difficult to explain, as the Eagle reporter in company with Mayor Maloney visited the plant dur ing' the fire and found the big pump working under 70 pounds pressure with plenty of water In the reservoir. Manager Preston says the reason was because there were four hose lines and he thought there were only two and as soon a' he learned the number ( of hose, put on more steam and great ly Increased the pressure. If the wind had been from the east the compress would have gone again, and If it had been from the west the entire Howell Lumber Company plant would have gone. Fortunately It was from the due south. The Lumber company's loss to lum ber and shingles was slight, amount ing to only about $1000 fully covered by insurance. Their main lumber sheds were not at all disturbed and there was no interruption to their business. H. A. Burger Announet.- Mr. 11. A.
