Grayhill and Mrs. Jacob Gilbert of this place. A very scions eonllagration was narrowly avcru-d in which at least the Post printing ollice and the stable adjoining it would have been entirely consumed on Tuesday after noon. The 'engine ro-mi was all ablaze, the (lames shooting opto the ceiling, much beyond the power ot a bucket brigade to extinguish, but the fortunate presence ot a small chemical lire extinguisher purchased from the York Chemical Co. last summer came to - our rescue. The charge had been in the extinguisher since last summer but the little "animal" did its work and hence we have a right to term it the ''Hero ot the Hour."
