FIRE RAGES IN DUSHORE.
Buins a Mecca for Hundred! Who Made
a Pilgrimage to the Scenei A Oailant
Fight With Stubborn Flamea.
The furniture store of Tubacli A
Son antl Samuel Cole's Hardware
store were damaged by tire and wat
er to the extent of several thousand
dollars Sunday night. The tire orig
inated in the eellar, the cause being
unknown, and was discovered at
about 7 o'clock.
The flames spread rapidly through
the building and by the time the
firemen had reached the scene the
whole second floor or rather that
part of the building given over to
the storage of cofllns was a mass of
flames amTsmoke and to all appear
ance the building seemed doomed.
But the heroic tire fighters, nothing
daunted, struggled hard with the
stubborn flames, playing flvo steady
streams of water with the hose anil
assisted by the bucket brigade fought
the flames until overcome. Luckly
the blaze was kept within the con
fines of the structure, had it reached
the exterior, adjoining buildings
could not have been saved.
The stock of eight hundred coffins
is an almost total loas while the fur
niture on the first floor not burned
up being badly damaged by heat and
water. Most of the damage done to
Cole's Hardware establishment was
effected by water and the many
articles broken by the reckless man
ner in which the building was reliev
ed of its wares.
During the desperate efforts to
stay the progress of the flames several
accidents occured. Dane Carpenter
was working on a ladder al>out twen
ty feet from the ground, when the
ladder gave way and he fell, lie
was stunned by the fall and inflicted
several bruises about his body Jas.
Cook was inside the building when
he fell through the floor and hurt in
ternally. Ed. Cannon inhaled smoke
and went out of service as a fireman.
BRINGING OKDEK OUT OF CHAOS.
Business was not haulted in Cole's
Hardware store. laborers began
moving debris and getting damaged
places in shape early Monday morn
ing. The street that was fairly
bloekaded with good was cleaned up
by noon and the articles carried back
into the store.
The loss will figure up into the
thousands. Fully covered by insur
