there were several gallons of gasoline

as usual this did the work. The fire
company worked hard and kept a house
adjoining not more than 15 fv^et away
from burning, Mr. Kyser’s liouse and
practically all his furniture were con
sumed. The total loss is estimated at
$6,0J0, with insurance $4,250.
The origin of the fire is unknoA'n.
It originated in the kitchen.
It seems to us that this fire makes
apparent the fact that this town needs
better fire protection. We mean no
reflection on the fire company, for the
nembers of our fire company are
most faithful and intelligent workmen
and should and do receive the apprecia
tion of the citizens ojt. the Lqwa*. But
nre company ctiT»not- muKe pressure
of the present system of water works.
We don’t consider the fault lies at any
man’s door. It is just the condition of
the system. What is needed is to have
conditions so that within a reasonable
length of time after an alarm it will
be possible to have strong streams
of water playing on the fiames.
It was the expressed opinion of a
large number of thos* present at the
fire that had the engine been throwing
the streams of water first played on
the fire that it would have extinguish
ed the flames before the house was de
stroyed. We pass it the town authori
ties if it would not be money well
invested to have horses ready to
rush the engine out at the same time
the present horses takes the hose reel.
A gas burner could be arranged so as to
keep the water hot in the engine all
the time so that stoam couIl bo fcotten
up in a few minutes. And .vi, would
not be a bad idea to have two ' tire en
gines.

had been particularly hard for her to
talk about the dead, about Beck and
Wells and Hunt and “the dear old par-
sCe Merchant,” Moore, and the rest. If

Nathaniel Green, from the Field Mar
