A residence belonging to Mrs Bar

by the Mclaiin family caught fire Sat
urday evening about ’J:3<) o’clock and
was totally destroyed. The origin of
the fire is unknown, as at the time the
member« of the McLain family were
in Portland attending the closing fes
tivités of the B P. O. E convention.
The fire is known to have originated in
a bed room butfarther than that nothing
is known. Mrs. Barker had had the
residence insured, the insurance run'
ning out just a few day» ago.
The McLain family moved into the
house only a few days prior to the blaze
and their loss was total except a camera
owned by Mr. McLain that he kept in
sured, being a photographer by pro
That adjoining residences were de
stroyed was due to timely and valiant
work rendered by the members of the
Lents Volunteer Fire Department.
The alarm had no sooner been sounded
than the chemical engine was rushed
to the scene of the blaze, and while it
was too late to attempt to save the
Barker residence, excellent work was
performed i n protecting adjacent
houses Many of the members of the
department were in Portland at the
time, but those who were here worked
in a heroic manner and ably demon
strated the value of the chemical en
gine recently purchased from Kern
Park- A bouse adjoining the Barker
residence was on fire in many places
and to save it seemed impossible but
the excellent work of the chemical ex-
tinquished the flames in a manner that
elicited praise from all, and it is the

residence was burned to the ground on
the night of July 8th between 11 and 12
o'clock The family was at the time
sleeping in a tent while the house was
being fumigated It is believed that
the fire resulted from the fumigation.
Very little of the household goods were
saved and the insurance on the house
was small. Only a week previous Mr.
Johnson's daughter died and the family
has the sympathy of the community in
this added misfortune.

on the batten he escaped with a broken
collar bone, a dislocated shoulder, a
bruised hip and a cut in the back of his
