A .burglar entered the McFarlnue
residence ou thi northeast sido of
towu, one evening last week. Mr.
McFarlane was away from home at
tho time, and Mrs. McFarlane aud
the .children wore alone in the house,
which is adjoining tho residence of
Mr. Helms aud in easy calling dis
tance. In the night Mrs. McFarlane
was awakened, as sho supposed at the
time, by the cat jumping ou the bed.
She gave the suppuscd ferine a sweep
with her hand and it disappeared,
yet was not heard to alight on the
floor. Remembering that slio had left
some beefsteak ou the kitchen table,
it occurred to her that she had better
get up and remove it to a place of
safety, since the cat seemed to be at
large in the house. She arose accord
ingly and entered the kitchen and was
astouuded to see the figure of a niau
crossing the kitchen floor. She
called out in alarm aud the burglar
lost no time in getting out of. the
house. Mrs. McFarlane thinks she
saw the same man down town but was
of course nnbule to identify him to a
AN EARLY MORNING FIRE
Residence Consumed and Aged
Ladv Badly Burned.
The house ou wist Front street
formerly owned by Mrs. Gibbs and
lately purchased by R. M. Bayfield
was destroyed by lire on Thursday
morning between four and five
o'clock. The building was occupied
by two families who were rendered
homeless ami lost besides all of their
household effects. There was uo in
surance on building or contents. The
origin of the tiro is a mystery. There
are those who think it was the work
of an incendiary, while another ex
plauatiou advanced is that , the lire
started from coals thrown out near the
house w ith ashes.
The lire was discovered about four
o'clock, the building being already
eiiv. lop, d in ilames. Thu house was
u-cupitd by Mr. and Mrs. Robbius
and Mrs. Simmons and children. On
being aroused they had barely tinio to
escape with their lives. Mrs. Robbius
wus quite badly burned in tho face
and the children of Mrs. Simmons
were more or lets Jiurued. The fire
men responded to the alarm as prompt
ly as possible Jbut the lire had reached
its height by the time the alarm was
turned in nnd the building had fallen
in by the time tho hose cart arrived
en the scene.
Series of Trtxirv Wrecks,
Train wrecks have been the order
lately. Like other calamities, they
.-eom to go in nggrogattons. Last
Wednesday evening there was an ex
citing freight wreck ut Gold Hill, a
ilead on collision in effect, though one
of tho trains was standing still. The
collision is explained by tho statement
th't the air brakes of the incoming
train refused to work. A sensational
feature of this wreck is in tho fact
that one of tho trains hail two cars
loaded with giant powder. One of
these curs was smashed to pieces and
half a car load of dynamite was
ground up and strewn around over the
ground, yet did not explode. The
population of Ciold Hill are still con
gratulating themselves that it did nut,
for it would in all likelihood have
blown the town off the face of the
earth. On l'tid.iy, isisseiiger train
No. 12, which passed through here
early in the morning, was wrecked
near Kiddles. A side rod of the en
