Fire In Patterson Building.
The fire alarm sounded abont 3:30
this morning and the town got up
to Bee what was the matter. When
first seen the flames were leaping
oat of the 3rd story and looked ugly
The firemen turned out promptly
and one of the Burlington companies
came to help. As soon as things
were ready, it took but a few min
utes to get it under control, but it
was prompt and well directed effort
that saved the principal business
block in town.
The fire started in the room on the
third floor which is used as a lodge
room by the Junior Order, Daugh
ters of Liberty and perhaps another
order or two.
The flre is thought to have origi
nated from throwing a cigar or cig
arette in a box containing saw dust,
nd that it had smouldered from 30
1« 36 honfr No one, save two per
sons, is known to have been iu the
lodge room the day or night before,
and neither of these smoked.
The platform upon which the pre
siding officer sits was consum d and
a hole burned through the floor at
that point. Two desks were badly
charred, also several chair* were
burned or charred. The floor of the
room was not badly damaged; not
so much so us the ceiling. Ail the
windows of the third floor next to
Main St. and some of those on side
next to Couit Square were broken.
"At first sight of the fire it looked
like the block was doomed, bat
thanks to the firefighters the danger
had soon vanished.
The first to discover the fire were
the two daughters of former Chief
of Police W. H. Boswell, who lives
almost opposite the Patteraon. Tbey
called to their parents and Mrs.Bos
well, barefoot, ran to the fire house
and turned in the alarm. To her is
doe the gratitude of the owners and
tenant" of the fire-stricken building
and also a hero medal for her bravery.
The total damage will hardly ex
ceed a thousand dollars. The
water damage is about equal to that
of the fire.
The first floor of the main build
iag under the room where the fire
wasia occupied by Graham Drag
Co. and the Citizens Bank. Water
ran down into both of these. In
this same building are The Little
City Store and Graham Hardware
Track For Btre.
Let us do your hauling of every
kind, moving, etc. Have a new
track. Terms reasonable.
