—On the evening of Wednesday, February 7, at
about o'clock, fire was discovered in a room
on the sth floor, at the east end of the main
building. It occurred just as the students were
coming from sniper, and it was some time before
efficient measures could be taken to stop it.
There was a great deal of unnecessary confusion,
and the amount of water used was sufficient to
put out three or four such fires; but the boys
worked hard and deserve a great deal of credit
for what they did. The fire started behind the
radiator and burned through to the floor below,
scorching the wails and destroying the furniture.
It was out in abotit twenty minutes after it was
discovered but not before everything was deluged
with water. The damage was not very heavy,
and we can congratulate ourselves on its not
being worse.
