j Diatruotive Flames in Duahore.
| About 8:30 p. m. on Monday evening
fire was discovered in the basement of L.
S. Burcli & Go's, large steam flouring mill
at Duahore. The flames had made but
little progress when discovered but owinp
to the Hre being in an almoat inaccessi
ble part of the mill nothing could be done
to save the property, which with the
steam sawmill adjoining, also the proper
ty of L. S. Burch & Co., was totally de
stroyed, together with the contents, about
one thousand bushela of corn, thirty
barrels of flour, about two hundred bush
els of grain, belonging to customers, and
other smaller items, the large circulai
saw and belts beiug saved, also the books,
pa pere, and etc. from the ofliee, L. E.
Wells having a very narrow escape whilt
With hard work the foundry directly
opposite was saved, also all the lurabei
and house in the immediate vicinity, al
though all were on fire at different times.
The fire originated it is supposed from
sparks from the smoke stack as this is the
third time fire has broken out in nearly
(lie same place. The loss will reach about
ten thousand dollars, fully covered by
