firo to burn brush on - his laud and
caused quite a conflagration. The
hrcezo came up suddenly and Mr.
Thayson having gone to work in an
other part of tho field did not notico
it until his attention was called to it
by Mr. J. A. Donnoy's littlo daughter,
who fearing for her own homo, and
her parents being away ran to Mr.
McNutt's, also, and gave tho alann.
Mr. McNutt and Doc. Russell prompt
ly hurried to tho scono. Mrs. Dennoy,
who is teaching, received word, just as
school had closed, oftho close proxim
ity of fire separated from thoir placo
only by a lane and, accompanied by
Mr. Oliver and numbers of tho school
children, hastened to the scene. Tails,
kettles, tubs, boilers, Hchool buckets,
to., woro promptly made uso of and
teacher and children dipped and car
ried wafer while inon worked with
might and main until the firo was
finally controlled so that by watching
it night and day for two or three days
and nights it was prevented fro
burning any of tho neighbor's promise.
Had it not been for tho prompt and
energetic assistance of tho men and
children much damage might have
been done the homos of J. A. Denney,
Mr- MoNutt and Mr. Pylea. Cinder
