A disastrous firo wlilcli destroyed one of
the most thriving business establishments
in town occurred at 3 o'clock Saturday af
ternoon, when the largo paper mill owned
by Wm. A. Colo A Co., and used almost
entirely for tho manufacture of lino tissue
paper, was burned to the ground. The
mill had been shut down for two days for
the purpose of putting In near screens and
a new pump, consequently thero was no
one In tho sorting room up stairs where
the fire originated. Its origin therefore is,
and probably always will remain, a mys
tery. The firo was discovered at 3:15
o'clock by some one on tho street and
the alarm quickly spread, but the flames
had been In progress a number of minutes
and, although the alarm was quickly re
sponded to by from 300 to 400 citizens, be
fore lines of hose could bo drawn from
the mills of F. L. Plerco and the Stowell
Manufacturing company, tho fire had gain
ed so great headway that to sive the mill
was a foreseen Impossibility. The dispo
sition of the people was exhibited, how
ever, in their attempts to save all possible,
which was Indeed very little. There were
00 tons of stock In the building and the
flames, when once hold of It, spread with
The three streams of water, Including
the two already mentioned and the one
which was turned on from the mill, were
poured In upon the fire continuously, but
failed to check its fury and it was while
tho flames were at their height that the
roof of tho building fell in upon tho wa
ter wheel, stopping It and cutting off that
supply. Then it was that tho stream from
F. L. Fierce's mill got In its effcctlvo work.
To that stream was undoubtedly duo the
saving of Mr. Allen's and II. J. Smith's
houses, which meant the saving of that en
tire side of tho street. That stream was
also turned upon A. M. Corser's store,
which was In Imminent danger of taking
Are at one time.
Aid was summoned from Brattleboro,
and in 48 minutes from the time the des
patch was sent, steamer No. 3, command
ed by Chief Engineer Turner and a force
of men made up of companies 3, 4 and 15,
appeared on the scene and had a new
stream of water upon the flames, which
had greatly subsided. All expressed satis
faction with the work of tho Brattleboro
company, although, tho flames having sub
sided, there was no opportunity for skilled
The value of the property burned was
$30,000, upon which there was an insur
ance of 10,000. Considering the long de
lay necessary for rebuilding, also the fact
that Mr. Colo was receiving more orders
than he could possibly fill by running night
and day, it will readily be seen that $30,
000 will not begin to cover the loss to Mr.
Cole, not to mention the loss to the town
by having idle such an establishment,
toward tho protection of which, or any
other building, the town has not appropri
ated a single dollar except by the purchase
of a few feet of hose, which did not sus
tain the strain and had to be replaced by
hose from Robertson's mill, and this hose
was connected to a private hydrant. A
new engine was put in the mill a short time
since at an expense of $2200, and the pa
per machine which was put in last sum
mer cannot be replaced for less than $0000.
The loss was total except, perhaps, one
boiler, which was partially filled with wa
ter. The other boiler was empty and was
probably spoiled. The rivet heads in the
bleacher are started so that Mr. Cole does
not consider it safe to use on account of
the tremendous pressure which would be
brought to bear upon it. The water wheel
mentioned still stauds and is 30 feet in di
ameter, or the second largest wheel in this
Mr. Cole is an enterprising man and was
continually enlarging and improving his
mill both inside and out. He had already
contracted with Mr. Willard of Westmin
ster for tearing down that part of the mill
nearest the road and for the erection of a
new one which should have the finishing
room un stairs connected with the manu
facturing rooms by an elevator, so that the
finished product count oe taKen out, oi me
mill where the raw material has heretofore
been put in. As to the prospects of the
mill beina rebuilt let us hope they are good
If it is rebuilt the new mill will be much
better than the old one and will probably
be of brick. Mr. Cole was interviewed on
the subject and talked disparagingly to the
correspondent. Already people nave oecn
here trvinz to cet him away. Mr. Cole
savs there is no fire protection here and lie
can do better elsewhere. Still there are
other things which lead one to believe that
he will rebuild her-e. He says this is his
home and no other nlace would seem like
homo to him. "I have always said that if
I ever had a home, if it was no larger than
an ice-house, I wouldkeeplt; but I didn't
think then I would over bo driven out in
this kind of way. Everybody has been very
kind to me and I thank them for it."
Tho oriuinal mill was owned by Stimp
son, Green & Fairbanks, who made paper
bvhand machinery. In 1822 or thereabouts
William and George Kobertson, then fresh
from Scotland, lourneveu lrom nariioru,
Conn., to Canada to look at a mill, but
being dissatisfied with it returned as tar as
Putney and hired the mill of tho firm men-
tinned. Siilisenuentlv Gcorce. who was
the father of our nresent respected Win.
Robertson, sold his Interest to his brother
William and built a saw-mill on the site
of tlin naner mill now owned by his
son William. After the freshet of 1828,
which was the most destructive freshet wo
ever had, William failed and the mill went
Into the hands of old Uncle Phineas wime,
who afterwards sold it to William's sons,
George and John, of Cohoes Falls, N. 1 ,
Later Gcoreo returning West sold his in
terest to his brother John, who in turn
leased the mill to Colo& Gough, who fall
ed and it. became, the property of Wm
Cole and John Robertson. At tho time of
the fire Mr. Cole was practically sole own
cr of the mill and empioyea zu nanus.
A Shocking Accident.

lips parents. At Claremont Juuctlon, as
Phillips's started for some bottles of medi
cine which were In tho satchel and climbed
In at the sldo door of tho baggage car. Be
fore he had secured the medicine the train
started and as the baggage was piled high
against tho end door ho concluded to ride
thero as far as Windsor. It was a rainy
day and the platform of tho Windsor sta
tion was wet and slippery. Unmindful of
this ho jumped from tho sldo door of the
car before the train had stopped and lost
his balance, after attempting to gather
himself once, and fell under tho car near
tho rear truck. Instantly ho clutched tho
truss rod and brake beam and was carried
along with the car or ho would have been
cut In two lengthwise. As It was his right
leg was just enough in advance of the
wheel to prevent the wheel running over it
and was horribly mutilated. In this posi
tion he was dragged 33 feet and the train
had to be starred backward before ho could
bo removed. His sister, who had come to
the station to meet him, witnessed tho acci
dent. When asked by the baggage master,
James Grlllln, why he jumped, ho replied,
"I wanted to help my wife and babies off."
Ho was taken to his wife's father's, where
ether was administered and tho leg ampu
tated eight Inches below the body by Dr.
Richmond and son, father and brother of
Mrs. E. S. Mungcr of this place, and two
other physicians. It was while under the
influence of ether that the reaction of the
shock came, from which he lacked suillclent
strength to rally, and died at 3:30. The
body lay In state until 10 o'clock Tuesday
morning, when funeral services wero held
at the Roman Catholic church, of which he
was a faithful and devout member. Ho
had a largo number of friends In Windsor,
who were also shocked by his sudden death.
Seventeen friends from here attended the
funeral, being kindly passed over the road
by Assistant Superintendent II. F. Samp
son. They carried with them a pillow and
cross and bunch of lilies. There were 30
carriages, mostly double teams, in the pro
cession. Mr. Phillips was 30 years old last Jan
uary and had lived here three years, suc
ceeding John Doherty as station agent.
During those three years ho had proven
himself to be a man of cood business capa
bilities, was even tempered and of a jovial
disposition, thoroughly honest and reliable,
and had won many friends, Before com
ing here Mr. Phillips was telegraph opera
tor at Windsor. He carried an insurance
of $1000 in tho Equitable Life Assurance
company, tho policy being taken out only
a tew weeks ago.
