Clevklaxu. Sept. 7. The grape growers
of northern Ohio arc- afilicred with a big
crop. The vines are black with fruit,
which is selling. it five cents a basket often
pounds in the vineyard. There is no profit
in such a price, for the ba-ket costs - two
and a half cents and the packing as much
more. It is said that no more grapes will
be sent to market, but that the remainder
of the crop will be ud to the wine mak
ers. This year's crop is the heaviest ever
known in this se'-tion of the country.

Soon after the discovery of the fire flames
broke through the roof and illumined the
sky and streets with a lurid glare that
served to make vivid the general scene of
confusion and excitement. As soon as the
flames broke through the windows and

block was known to be doomed. It soon
became a liery furnace. The fad ling wall
proved to be not only a death trap for the
