BIG FIRE LOSS AT MARIENNILLE.
David Mintz's Large Department Store
With All Contents Burns.
Marlenvllle has sgain been visited by a
heavy fire losa In tbo burning of tbe large
department store of David Mintz at an
early hour yesterday morning.
Shortly after 2:30 o'block guests at the
Keystone Hotel discovered the lire and
quickly gave the alarm, but when theoit
Izens arrived at the conflagration tbs
whole inside of tbe bnilding waa aflame,
and entrance from any quarter was Im
possible, and tbe only available fire-tight-ng
apparatus at band a couple of chem
ical engines was Inadequate to cope
with tbe seething furnace Inside.
Tbe structure was the largest store
building In the county, occupying a
space 40x150 on tbe corner of Walnut and
Spruce streets, two stories high and of
solid brick. Its cost was at least $25,000.
It was erected In 1902, shortly after the
great fire that wiped out the entire busi
ness portion of tbe town and many of its
be t homes,
Mr. Mintz bad done an Immense busi
ness since occupying tbe new store and it
was tilled from cellar to garret with mer
chandise of every description. Not a
single article was rescued from the burn
ing structure. When the roof fell in tbe
brick walls, exceptiug part of that on
Walnut street crumbled and fell, leaving
only a mass of ruins.
The amount of leas on building and
stock Is only conjecture ss yet, but is
thought to be well up to the $50,000 mark,
with something like 30,000 Insurance in
the H. A. Shlpe Agency. A frame struc
ture near tbe main building used as a
floor and feed store was saved, after
about f 1,000 worth of tbe contents bad
How or In what part of tbe building tbe
Ureoriginated is unknown, Mr. Mintz, as
Is bis custom, was at the store at a late hour
and knows there was no evidence of fire
when he left for bis borne to retire for the
night. Wben be was aroused from bis
slumbers and reached the store be was
determined, in his excitement, to euter
the building, but was dissuaded by the
Tbe loss of this elegant block is a ser
ious blow, not alone to tbe owner, but to
tbe business Interests of the town as well,
and whether Mr, Mintz will rebuild is
not yet known, but it is hoped bs may if
even on a less extensive scale. His prop
erty Interests in the town are quite ex
tensive and it is thought this fact may in
duce bim to put up another store build
ing. ! - The only other damage sustained was
by. Editor Pickens of tbe Express, whose
building on the opposite corner suffered
to the exient of about 200.

Tbe regular September term of ciyll
