, Tuesday night about midnight
an alarm of fire was "given caused

wood was destroyed.
The fire was unmistakeably of
incendiary orgin. John Allen,
who lives next door was the first
on the scene. The wood was then
fiercely ablaze aud within two
feet of the door he tound a burst
ed tin can of about a half a gal
lon capac.ty and an eimty bottle
both very hot. It is thought they
hd contained gasoline. The
indications are that the contents
of the bottle bad been poured on
:he wood, a match then apphVH

might explode and more effectu-J

of the explosion threw the can
outside where Mr. Allen found it.
