FIRE IN A BUSINESS BLOCK.
Dropping; of a Lig-htad Match Is Probably
Special to the flbftiaioa Tribune.
IIoxksdai.k. Jan. S3 For the First
time in a number of months, Protec
tion Eugiue company, No. 3, was called
out by an uLirm of fire. When the
alarm was sounded duuse volumes of
black suioko were pouring out of the
basement of Ferber Bros' Cigar store.
Tha cigar store, with manufactory in
the rear, is situated on Main street in
the center of one of the principal busi
ness blocks of Honesdale. To the by
stander it seemed an age before the
fire departmont arrived, while in real
ity it was but it few momenta The
smoke from burning wood and tobacco
continued to nour out of the building,
A water plug opposite was attached,
but was frozen up. However, it was
but an instant before the stroatn was
on. It was several moments after be
fore tiie water was turned on from the
The cellar was flooded and the fUtnes
quenched. The libit floor and basement
are used as a cigar manufactory and
store. The second floor is occupied by
Robert Ferber and sisters and the third
by William Ferber and wife. Mrs.
William Ferber is just recovering from
throat trouble. The suffocating smoke
filling her rooms before she was aware
of the tire proved almost too much for
her strength and she had to be helped
from the house by a fireman.
About 9 a. m. one of tin boys em
ployed in making cigars took a match
and went into the cellar to look for a
spring that he had lost from his re
volver. Robert Ferber rapped for him
to come up to work. It was scarcely
five minutes later that the fire was
discovered. A barrel nearly full of
kerosene was standing in the corner.
Although the barrel was burned on
all sides the oil did not ignite.
About 5. 000 pounds of tobacco was
spoiled by the water. The under part
of the floor is badly burned, and one
show window gutted. Smoke pene
trated all parts of the house, blacking
woodwork, soiling curtains, etc., and
tarnishing silver, Although the in
surance carried was small it will cover
The fire again forcibly brought be
fore the people of Honesdale a prouii
uent fact; that a water plug a is surer
and quicker means of getting water on
a fire than by pumping water from the
canal or river by means of the steamer.
A steady stream was pouring on the
fire from the bose attached to the ping
some time before the steamer got into
action. The hose attached to the
steamer bursted twice, necessita
ting delay, while, the hydrant fur
nished a steady, effective stream. Let
us have a reservoir that can furnish a
heavy preasure, and there will be less
delays at all fires.
Dyspepsia and Indigestion
In their worst forms ar- cured by the
use of P. P. P. If you are debilitated and
run down, or if yon need a tonic to regain
flesh and lost appetite, strength and vigor
