The alarm of fire yesterday e
was caused by a burning chimney on
the residence of Mr. John Michell, editor

keen all right, but it looks to ua like a
put up job by brother Michell, as an
extra inducement to Santa Claua. V No

goods in his line. Fancy candies, in

Yesterday .afternoon" between 4 and 5
o'clock, Thomas N. Joles died at the
residence of his brother in this city.
The news was a shock to the community,
a3 his death was sudden and unexpect
ed. Mr. Joles has not been in good
health for some time, having had a very
severe spell of sickness last summer,
from which he never entirely recovered ;
but yet he was able to attend to his
business, and was apparently regain
ing his health.
The first report was that he had taken
a dose of carbolic acid by mistake.
This report was caused by the fact that
Mr. Joles, a few moments before the
fatal attack, had put some carbolic acid
on his lips, which were chapped, mis
taking it for salve. This, of course, had
nothing to do with his death. He had
gone to his room shortly after dinnerf
and had . been there but a short time
when he was seized with a choking
spell. Dr. Logan was sent for, but by
the time he arrived the end was reached,
and with a gasp or two, the spirit of the
stricken man took flight. No autopsy
was held, but-the doctors agree that
death was caused by fatty degeneration
of the heart.
The funeral takes place tomorrow
afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Method
ist church, under the direction of the
A. O. TJ. W. order, of which he was an
Deceased came here from Geneseo,
Illinois, about twelve years ago, and has
been in business nearly ever since that
time. At tbe time of his death he was
eenior member of the firm of Joles, Col
lins & Co., one of the leading business
houses of the city. He was a member
of the city council at the time of his
death, a position he had held for several
years, and was energetic and conscien
tious in the discharge of his duties. He
was unmarried, aged 35 years, and will
be-sincerely mourned by a large circle of
friends. Besides being a Workman, de
ceased was also a member of Columbia
Lodge, I. O. O. F., of Mt. Hood Camp,
