examination of the First Natioual

Hon. J. W. Morton, one of our

00 Artisans and they were select

Tuesday evening. They piled up
wagon load of light pine boxes,
dry as tinder, saturated them with
kerosene, touched them off and "let
her went," until the fire roared
like a burniug brush heap. Then
Mr. Rogers inverted one of the lit
tle copper soda water cans, switched
its tail around the base of the fire
for about a minute and had the fire
out. He had enough fizz water
eft to put out two or three such
fires. It was one of these fire ex
