it w.is thouplu nt flrst that spontunc
- i omliiistlon probably was tho causo
n: tlK- llre, but thcre are Indlcntio'us that
,i w.is set by a trntnp. Aliout 1 o'clock
tijnliv morning Josoph Humrlll, nlght
v un in In tlu Stowoll factory,
i . .imh he henrd a nolse In tho upper part
,' thc fartory, but ho was unable to de
..inilne tho source of tho nolse. Later,
wnli j:oing hls rounds on tho thlrd lloor,
i, i s-melled tobacco smoke. and on mnk-
ii. g an inrestlsatlon found a tramp on
t'n lloor smoking. Ile nsked thc tramp
i w hc got in and tho latter replled that
1 came In through one of the ground
f "ir windows. Mr. Ilumrill ordcrod tho
trttnp out of tho bulldlng, but he re
fused to bo until he was threatened with
nrrest. Then lio startcd In tho dlrectlon
nf the Itobertson mlll. Tho mlll had been
h it down to nllow somo repalrs to he
made, there was no flrc under tho boll
ers and all tho rmployes wero away.
About & o'cloek In tho morning Danlel
C'rnwloy, mnrhlnc tender, wbo hns been
employed by Mr. Hobertsqn 23 years,
went to the mlll and ln a few mlnutes
heard n crnokllng sound ovcrhead In
the west end, farthest from the en
trance. On looklng up ho saw flre on
the second lloor and Immedlately gave an
alarm. Then he attempted to got a
stream of wator on to the llre, but the
locntlon was such that he was unable
to do so. The flre Uepartment lald 1100
feet of hose from the water pump ln the
Cole mlll, there belng no steam with
whlch to operato tho steam pump, and by
hnrd work they wero nble to savo the of
fice bulldlng, nlthough lt took flre sev
oral times and on ono sldo was badly
charred. If the olllce bulldlng had burn
ed, the store iiouse, In whlch was ovcr
$jii00 worth of paper, also probably would
have burned. The flre throws about 13
persons out of cmployment.
The mlll was devoted prlnclpally to tho
manufncture of colored paper. Its dally
capaclty was about 4000 pounds of battcn
paper, used for wrapplng up cotton, and
from 2300 to GuOO pounds of tbln tlssuo pa
per. It was enulpped with a DG-lnch
machlne, two englnes and other ma
chlnery. The machlne had slx drlers,
two of whlch were put ln a year ago.
Included ln the property burned was
about $2000 worth of paper ready for shlp
ment, $1000 worth of colnrlng matter, an
ncetylene gas plant put In last wlnter at
a cost of $300, and $2X worth of nearly
new beltlng. The mlll was put ln flrst
class condltlon a year ago at an ex
pense of ff.000. The prospect for busl
ness was unusually good.
The mlll stood ln what 1s called "the
pit," belng down ln the valley east of
the vlllnge, near a huge cllft whlch rlses
to a helght of nearly 100 feet. About 100
years ago a saw mill stood there. Af
terwards Capt. Robcrtson's father made
paper thcre by hand. In 1S2S tho old
mlll was washed away by a freshet. A
new paper mlll was erected whlch was
owned by Kphrlam Holland of AValpole,
N. II. Whcn Capt. Itobertson was 2i)
years old ho leased the mlll and made
straw paper. Afterwards he bought the
mlll and ran lt unlll lt Was worn out,
when ho tore It down and built a new
one. whlch was tho ono burned.
Thero has been somo talk of formlng
a stock company to put up a new mlll
and continue the buslness, but nothing
deflnlte has been declded upon. The slte
and water privllege certalnly is too val
uablo to lay idle. The dam, penstock,
bleach, and probably tho bollers, are not
damaged, and these with the pxcellent
busineys prospect otight to be utlllzed by
all means. Deepest sympathy 1s felt
with Capt. Itobertson in his great loss.

He feared that It was a warnlng of

The dlsaster was not for them. On

An Example for Office Boys.
"Be good to the olllce boy," ls a moral
tauglu by the career of Wllllam Aldon
Smlth. He had saved a little money nnd
wanted a place to study Blackstone.
Thls wns in 1S79. llo thought flrst of
Chlcngo, nnd even went so far as to go
to that clty and npply for a place as
oftiee boy in the firm ot Walker & Dex
ter. But lt was ln the summer, and the
heads were all out of town, and he end
ed by returnlng to Grand Raplds. Jlere
he selccted tho tlrm of Burch & Mont
gomery. He had suggested thls beforo,
but they had not needed hlm;, he was
this tlmo confronted by a closed olllce
and a card tacked on the door saylng
thoy were out ot town and would not be
back for several weeks. But thls dld
not daunt Smlfh, who Ilnally looked up
Mr. Plerce, tho owner of tho bulldlng
nnd a man of somo promlnenco In the
town. He told Plerco what ho wanted.
and tlnally persuaded hlm to glvo hlm a
pass-key to the olllce. And so It hap
pened, when Judge Burch returned he
found hls otllccs swept and garnlshed,
antl n brlsk young clerk dlllgently read
ing at ono of tho desks. To tho ln
qulrlea of tho Judgo the young fellow re
plled that ho had come to stay;
thnt he was tho olllce boy at noth
ing a week. All ho wanted, he said,
was a chance to make hlmsolf useful,
nnd Incldentally to read a little law,
Thlngs looked so clenn and tho young
man was so respectfully determlned to
reinaln that Judge Burch good naturedly
In seven years Smlth was a member
of tho flrm. In seven years more he
was part owner ln tho prlnclpal news

years ho had added two moro rallroads
to hls assets, and was In Congress.
Meantlme tho whecl of fortune has been
