West Brattleboro had her second dis astrous lire of recent years Saturday evening,. one that swept away some $s0,000 of property, including the Clark block, built on the site of the hotel burned some doz n years ago. together with two other blocks and the old hotel barn. The lire broke out about 11 :30 o'clock in A II 4 E Stratton's meat market, a one story bunding wrucn wasjrull of grease ana burned with lightning like rapidity, almost From there tho fire quickly, communicated to Dr O 8 Clark's three story block occupied by M I Mather's store, the post ofnee and three other tenants and running along the ell to the block leapod to the old hotel baru and set Are. to John Sargent's barn a short distance beyond, though the flames were finally stayed hero after burning off one side of it. From the starting point in the Stratton building the names leaped the bank and de stroyed L H Knapp's two story block occupied by Henry Prefountain's meat market and a barber snop. lo tne old hotel barn 12 fat hogs and number of pigs were burned, but the horses, cattle,wagons,etc,were saved The fire was discovered and the alarm given by a stranger riding tnrougn the village. Mr fAxupp luime dately looked out and saw what looked like great rolls of flame filling the Stratton building and very shortly af ter the flames burst out from every part of it. E O Weatherhead in Clark block looked out at about the same time and is very positive he saw two fires, one in the Stratton building ana another in tho barn 00 feet away ; but Dr Clark thinks the latter must have been a reflection, as he was there several minutes later and saw none ex cent what was coming from the ell of the block. The Western Engine company responded to the alarm, but though ngbting gallantly could do nt tie against a fire spreading at both ends. Steamfeis arrived from the East village. 11 A Stock wol) telephoned three buildings on fire to Chief Turner. who had been sick abed since Thursday, threatened with pneumo nia, but he jumped iuto his clothes and got down to the engine house and rang the alarm, and just 23 minutes after it was rung, steamer .No 3 wa s there and set by the mill. WA) feet of hose laid and o Btream playing, and by this means the tire was stopped at Sargeant's barn. It was what saved the eatern end of the village and it is the first time people living outside the r.ast village limits have bad the ben en; of keeping horses in the engine house But by 2 o'clock the fire was under control. The Eitey Steamer company respond ed as usual to the alarm, but finding the tire was at the West village the men returned home. After Chief Tur ner reached the scene be telephoned Gen. Estey to send up help - and though here was eontg- trouble in trie con etion to cause delay, uen Estey got up.'and aroused some men while the electric road placed a car at tb service of the department, McCarthy ran it himseir with 'resident UrosDy to help and some great time was made taking the engine with George W Ful- er in charge from Birge street to West Brattleboro in 18 minutes, including a stop at the Elliott street corner for coal But when it arrived the lire was practically under control- There are conflicting theories as to the cauBe of the fire but tho most probable one is that it caught from the trying out of lard in the Stratton market which had been in progress during the afternoon and evening.and they had been out of there but a short time when it broke out. Two or three dillerent people think they noticed a bright light there before tho alum, but they gave it no attention at the time. There is a story of two men bo ng seen running away from there and nother about boys returning from the rally and stopping about there to rink and smoke, but they cannot so fur be verified, though many people osist on believing that it was inccn iary.
