The origin of the fire la not known.
It waa discovered r-iortly after 4 a.
in. and had gained considerable head
way before tho fire fighters could get
to tho scene. A large amount of
goods. Including atocka of whiskeys
and wines, was carried out of the
doomed building and saved. As haa
been tbo caso on numerous other oc
caslons, there was, fortunately, an ab
sence of wind, and this mado it pos
sible to save tho adjoining buildings.
Wennndy's livery atnblo received a
scorching, and being In danger, all
tho livestock and vehicle were got
out to a place of safety. Tbo amall
building on the alley in the rear of
tho burned structures waa saved with
difficulty, and at one time It was fear
ed that the Are would spread to the
new First National Hank building aud

Tho owners of the burned build

again, they declare. Myers & Wll

WOUNDS ARE NOT
Wltlle on Hantlng Trip up Hirer Te
day, Onn la DUchargnl Injured
Man Hashed to Horn Jfero
ami Is Octring AIongAWell.
The accidental dltchargo of a gun
this morning, while H. J. Overt urf
and D. JI. Davis were hunting ducks
from a canoo on the river abovo Har
per, put a goodly lot of No. C shot In
Overturf's right calf and hip, whllo
others struck tho back of his head.
Only owing to tho greatest good luck
was tho accident as llttlo serious as
Is proved. Other shot toro a bolo
In tbo canoe which was "aa big as
a hat," aa Overturf said, and it was
a hard matter to get the craft to tho
bank In time to keep it from sinking.
Darla got to n phono as soon a
poaalble, notifying II. A. Miller of
the accident, and Miller at once got
an auto and rushed up to Harper to
bring the Injured man home. They
reached hero at 2 o'clock and Over
turf Is now at his home, where Dr.
Fcrroll has attended to bis wounds.
Whllo very painful, thoy are reported
as being not In tho least wcrlous.
Yesterday afternoon Overturf and
Davis rode up to M. S. Miller's stop
ping place at Harper, and after re
maining there over night, thla morn
ing went to tho river, taking O. P.
Putnam's canoe which had been
stored at Harper. They put this in
the river near the new county bridge
bolow C. D. Allen'a and thenco pad
dled up river.
Tho accident happened about 10
o'clock, about a mile below the mouth
of apring river. Exactly how it oc
curred la aonewhat hazy, but appar
ently some ducks unexpectedly flow
over the canoeists. Hoth dim
reached for their guns, which they
bad beneath the scats. As Davis
drew hla out. It went off. The groat
er part of the charge went through
the side of the canoe, while a number
of shot entered Overturf's leg and hip
and struck his bead, which fortun
ately was turned away. It seems as
If most of the shot that reached him
must havo glanced off from tho wood
work of the canoe.
The two reached the cast bank
hen the canoe rank. It b under
stood that the paddles are now voyag
ing down stream, and may bo expect
ed at Hend In a day or two, whllo tho
canoe awaits tbo services of a diver.
Neither of the guns was lost orer
loard In the melee.
There are several feet of snow on
the Dig Meadows, and Davis had to
rig up crude skis for his Injured com.
panlon. with which he was helped
serosa to F. A. Bbonquest's house oat
tb main road. When Miller, with
Henkte and Ford's auto, reached
Lava Dutte, he met 8honquest In a
rig bringing Overturf down. DarU
followed with the aaddle horses takea
from Dend yesterday.
