FUrniture Factory Burned.
The large furniture manufactory of J.
0: 'Frosts' Sons, situated in this, western
part of this borough, was totafrilestroyed
by fire on Monday morning, last. The fire
was first discovered at about 1:30 o'clock,
andan alarm at once given. - The firemen
promptly responded, but owing to a scar
city of water, could do nothing in saving
the buildings on fire from destruction, and
so devoted their energies in preventing the
spread of the fire to'ft number of dwellings'
in.the immediate vicinity, and a large store
house just south of the factory, which they
did. When first discoVered the flames
were burning briskly on the lower floor of
the main building near the heavy well
dividing the engine and boiler room from,
the ;main shop. - The fire rapidly spread and
in a very few minutes the whole lower
story of the main building was in flames;
and its total destruction was a foregone con
elusion. The flames bursting through the
Windows of the main building rapidly com
municated to lumber sheds, piles of lumber
and several small buildings, used as finish
ing shops and store rooms, and they were
alsci totally destroyed, although a consider
able portion of the stock in the last nam
ed buildings was carried into the adjacent
fields and saved, but all more or less injur
ed. It was after 3 o'clock when the Haines
were finally gotten under control, and then
only by the hardest kind of work on the
part of the firemeri and citizens, There
had been no fire in any . part of the build
ing since the previous Saturday
and from the location where the flames
were first discovered, it is evident that the
fire was the work of an incendiary. The
loss of Messrs. Frost's Sons will aggregate
about $40,000 and-there is no insurance on
either stock, buildings or machinery: Aside
from the loss suffered by tho Messrs. Frost
their employes are heavy losers by the des
truction of tools. The establishment was
one of the largest manufactories in our vil
lage and gave employment to about seventy
five men. The Messrs. Frost have the
sympathy of our satire community in their
serious loss, and &is the general wish of
all our citizens tlig i ty may be enabled
to rebuild their menl *trey at once. '

of more thaniordinary merit. and interest.',

A. D. DYE & CO., .
with a full liae of hardware from their, large
store on Main street. A Happy „Thought
range—the most popular range in =AO,—
.was put in running order and demonstrated
to all interested house keepers that itis the
most economical of fuel, the cleaneat and
the most durable of cook stoves. There
was a great variety of kitchen and parlor
stoves, adapted to the use of the several
kinds - of coal , or of wood. The! new style
of heaters, square in form and handsomely
ornamented - with painted tiles, received
especial attention. The "diamond. grate"
in "The Ivy", a square parlor stove; is an
improvement over the ordinary ' duplex
grate: - Messrs. Dye & Co., sold a' large
number of stoves on the Fair ground. In
the sixth building, ' ,

seas represented by his popular head clerk
011ie Bennet. The other btotiin' ga were
crowded at times, but Fitch's 174ilding was
never free from the slush of . people desirous,
of investing in the fruits, nuts, and cenfec-,
tionery offered for sale there. IF.verybody
was interested in seeing the process of mak
ing the pure candy, for whiOh Fitch is
celebrated. ,The. way that good looking
clerk spun the "taffy" was • well worth
seeing, and then him deliciously it tutted.
Perhaps it was but 'natural that a majority
ok the crowd was composed of young ladies,
;with a large development of "sweet tooth."
This building was devaed to the display
of the ladies handiwork, and is entirely in
adeqUate for the purpose. Many of the
beautiful articles of fancy work, are ruined
by the dust, which should be prevented by
properly constructed shoW cases. We hope
the society will make better provision for,
the ladies' department of the Fair, by
another year, at least. There was a' fine
display of cut flowers, ferns and house
plants in "Floral Hall." Mr. Wm. -Del
peuch exhibited silk worm eggs and cocoons.
A. J. Fisher and C. 3:Dayton displayed
photoOphs. The latter had a portrait in
pastille, of a beautiful child. There were
several epecimens of art-embroidery, ex
quisitely executed, but we did not learn the
names of theimakers. Mrs. Frank Vought
and MA. Lou Coburn eihibited some finely
colored ivory type miniatures. A stand
and desk ornamented with scroll mw work
by James - Harris of this place, iged 70; was
much admired. A similar desk by John W.
Holcomb of Ulster, aged 18, . was a highly
creditable piece of work. Tbe4 were some

most interesting of r any at the Fair—to

several fine specimens of penmanship, cards

girl . of 12 years, of age—had case of neatly

flourishing beim ess with hand presses at
card printing. Mr. A. T. May of Leßoy,
one of the most . successful teachers 'in the
county, had a large and valuable geological
collection, , made principally in Bradford
county. The Towanda Graded Schools had
a fine mineralogical cabinet, chemical ' mid
philosophical apparatus, text books, pen
manship and' eiamination papers. The
