being filled to its capacity with
seekers after the great truth, the
basement of the church was dis
covered to be on fire. An alarm
was immediately raised, and the
fire department turned out, but be
fore the company could reach the
scene tho fire was extinguished
through the prompt action of sev
eral attendants upon the services,
and what might have been a serious
loss to the denomination, culminat
ing no doubt in many accidents to
those who were crowded into the
building, was averted.
To the credit of the minister
officiating and the good sense and
coolness of the audience generally
the evacuation of the building was
commenced and executed in an
orderly manner. The church stands
upon a high basement, the doors
reached on cither side by precipitous
steps, and had excitement prevailed,
there would have, been sad hearts
in Cottage Grove today.
