Lower Chewacan marsh a low

30 miles north of Lakeview, has
been almost wholly consumed by
a fire which lasted several days
and destroyed over 5000 tons of
hay. A message from the scene of
conflagration summoned nil avail

hold the flames in check.
It is not possible to estimate the

the weather has deteriuied the ex

It is difficult to account for the
persistence of the flames as they
seem to run everywhere. All the
Hereford Bros.' hay was destroyed,
as was also all that belongs to the
Brittains in that section. The fire
almost consumed the portion of the
marsh belonging to the J. B. Hag-
gio company of Secramento. Ten
thousaud cattle were to have been
wintered in the marsh.
