LOSS ESTIMATED AT SI.OOO.
I Caused by a Defective Ftoe M Is
Does Splendid Work.
fThe largest and most destrucitve
fire ever known in the history of
Beaverton occurred in that place
last Saturday morning at about
10 o'clock in the building known
as the Hamilton block, next to
the Southern Pacific railway
tracks. . The fire was discovered
by children of Joseph Specht,
and the cause of the blaze is at
tributed to a defective flue.
The building vas owned by
Earl Fisher and was uninsured.
He estimates his loss close to
$1,000. It is fortunate that no
wind was blowing, as the build
ing was very old and dry and
burned rapidly, and had there
been a brisk breeze the flames
would undoubted have spread to
other buildings. As it was, ev
erything was saved, thanks to
the efficient work of the bucket
brigade, which carried water
from nearby wells, and by the
use of wet blankets and salt suc-
ceeded in saving the store of
T. Hedge, the firemen pushing
in the burning walls adjoining
his building. Mr. Hedges car
ried out all of his stock, counters
and showcases, still he suffered
considerable damage from break
age and water. The fire lasted
two hours in spite of the hard
work of the bucket brigade.
whose fire-fightintt qualities were
fully tested and highly commend
ed by all.
This structure was an old land
mark and its history if written
would make interesting reading.
Whether it will be rebuilt has
not been definitely settled, but
its removal at this time has cer
tainly been a benefit to Beaver
ton. The building was occupied
by Joe Specht and family, Chas.
Zabe, and Stroud & Donaline.

Your Railroad Station Is the Door
lo Your Town.
Have you not many times judg
ed a town by its railroad station?
asks a writer in The Delineator
Dump heaps, scum-covered
pools of water, dingy warehouses,
poorly paved streets, the back
yards of Shantytown how often
these pictures form the travel
er's only recollection of a city or
a town 7 So-and-so: on
yes, I passed through there once
wretched town, from what
saw of it!" Have you not heard
this scathing judgment pronounc
ed scores of times? How differ
ent would have been the travel
er s impressions if he nad lound
himself entering the town
through a well-lighted -iaduct
and emerging into a station
where blossoming plants and
grass plots occupied every avai
able bit of ground!"
A great many of our railroads
are doing splendid work in mak
ing their stations and the grounds
around them beautiful. Where
the architecture of the country
distinctive in character, the
station is of ten built to conform
with that style. Some railroads
maintain greenhouses and nur
series to suddIv their station
parks with plants and shrubs,
For, even if it is not expedient
to build a new station, much may
be done by . utilizing the waste
spaces and the unused corners
for flower beds and green grass.

New Cruise Ordered.
A number of the taxpayers
from the northwestern part of
this county have been before the
commissioners' court with com
plaints concerning alleged exces
sive assessments on timber lands.
The estimates made by the cruis
ers for the county appear to have
been very erraneous, in many in
stances. One tract next Buxton
was reported to have a lot of
timber when, in fact, it had been
logged three times. Several oth
ers were credited with heavy
timber when they have no tim
ber at all. A proposition was
made that the county recruise
that timber district, and that if
the new cruise tallies with the
old one, the owners will pay the
expense, and. if not, the county
to pay the bill and allow a cor
responding rebate on current tax
ation. The court has decided to
accept the proposition.

A letter from Port Jarvis, N.
Y., of recent date says: Wm.
Johnson, who lives near Berry
ville, owned a valuable cow up to
the other morning early, when
he went into the barnyard to get
two gallons of kerosene oil which
had been left there the night be
fore. The pail that had held the
liquid was there all right, but the
oil had disappeared, a fact which
caused Johnson some perplexity.
Nobody seemed to know anthing
about the kerosene, and the
mystery was getting thicker
when Johnson's attention was
diverted by the news that his
best cow was sick.
Sure enough, there was gentle-eyed
bossy, more than usu
ally plump, and seemingly breath
ing her last It was dark in that
corner of the barn, and Johnson
lit a match. The blazing match
was in his fingers when bossy
drew in a long and agonized
breath. Johnson was amazed to
see a circle of fire about the cow's
head, and then a long stream of
flame disappear down the ani
In a second there was an ex
plosion that hurled Johnson to
another corner of the barn.
When he came to bos?y was rep
resented by a nice hat rack or
nament in the form tf a pair of
horns. Morning nie. except a
smell of kerosene. Just a little

The Savins Bank In Austria.
The Austrian Postal Savings
Bank celebrated last month the
twenty-fifth anniversary of its
establishment. The occasion was
made use of for reviews of its
work, which, as in the case of
almost all other government sav
ings banks, wore highly lauda
tory. The bank has now over 2,000,
000 dejiositors, with deposits
reaching a total of $15,000,000.
Austria is a poor country, and
the figures of the bank's busi
ness do not. therefore, compare
in magnitude with those, for ex
ample, of the British postal sav
ings bank. But for some of the
services rendered the Austrian
bank is entitled to distinction.
It has established a checking
department, which last year han
dled 46,000,000 transactions, with
a turnover of $4,500,000,000. Of
these transactions 7,000.000, re
presenting $2. 055, (KM), 000, ' were
settled by simple debit and credit
entries in the accounts without
the handling of money. The
bank ako acts as an agency for
the investment of its depositors'
funds in safe securities, includ
ing foreign government bonds.
Most novel of all, however, is its
service to the state in facilitat
ing the collection . and payment
of government money and in aid-
ing the financial operations of the
The fact that the postal bank'
has develojxMl a checking de
partment is due no doubt entire
ly to the poor service rendered
by the private banks of the coun
try in this respect. In a country
like the United States, with its
immense development of credit
banking, the government would
have' no Held for such operations.
This fact, however.- aorvm nnlv
to emphasize the further fnct'P- m- muraday
that there is, in our own country
an actual lack of proper facilities
for the small savings accounts of
workingmen and of other people
located in rural districts. Right
here an American postal savings
bank would have its most impor
tant and probably its sole field of
It is significant that the most
enlightened of our bankers be-
ieve that a postal savings bank
would be a positive benefit to pri
vate banking institutions, and

New York, March 7. Editor

thence to the Michigan Central
for New York.
It was clear, fine and sunny
the whole distance. There was
snow on the ground practically
all the way from Omaha to New
York, though not deep and not a
bit cold. The Hudson river, by
which we traveled for miles, was
frozen over. People were sleigh
ing, skating and walking on its
icy surface. I noticed some
small boats with Bails which I
was told were on runners, like
a sleigh, and they flew over the
ice with the speed of the wind,
I think they call them ice boats.
