Fire at Bernard..
I-ast Thursday afternoon a disastrous
fir was averted by the aid of lmn.1 fire
extinguisher which stood in a convenient
part of the store of J. K. Iternard A Son.
Ted Jaqnish tie clerk was workings! a
bench near th oiV.ee, hammering some
pipe. and as he w as making considerable
noise he fai ed to lifiir the roar of tlanu'S
on the inside of tln otVt-e, the door of
which was luhtly closed. Poring a lull
in hi" work, however, he heard framed
picture drop from the wall anl upon go
ing to the ftlice dor cneivcd the (lames
reaching up the side of the couth wall
ai:d along the ceiling. The fire was
gaining rapid headway, and realizing
that water would leof liule ue in stay
irtg it? fnrv thecUrk helhought himself
of a fire extinguisher on a shelf near the !
otfice and quickly putting the instru
ment into use soon had the lite exting
uished. The origin of the tire w as a spark
that fell into the wood box. which soon
ignited Mine paper and then the wood.
At tiie tianies crawled np the wall the
string holding the picture frame wait
hurnt. and the frme fell to the floor.
It was the noise of the falling picture
that attracted the attention of Mr. Jaq
uih and saved the town and especial'y
Bernard & S n from disastrous and
costly fire. This is not the only instance
in which these little hand extinguishers
have done excellent work and saved

and England. Mie is a native of Klam
ath county and the daughter of Col. N.
B. Knight of Wood River. A part of
her life was passed in Salem, hut her
environments became too damped for
so much lcauty and talent and she
crossed the waters to London where
she brant tied out as an actress. She it
was who created a sensation in two
countries by bringing suit for $50,000
against the L'oke of Manchester for
breach of promise. After the Duke had
promised to marry Miss Knight lie
changed his affections to Papa Zimmer
man's daughter, on account of the
Papa's millions and because Miss Knight
was moneyless. She recently appeared
in London in "The Artful Valet," a
stupid comedy selected for her, and her
debut was a "frost." Miss Knight is

The greatest volume of wool imrorts
comes from Australia, 22,500,000 pounds
during the last fiscal year. Nearly all
this was fine wool, class one; but only
about halt of this came from Australia
direct, the other half being reshipped
from Kngland, Helgium and trance.
From Argentina we imsjrted about 14,
500,(JiKl ounds of wool, three-fourths of
which, approximately, was "carpet
wools," class three. Then of coarse or
carpet wools we imported about 11,000
000 pounds from Scotland, and of dif
ferent grades of wools, 5,000,000 freni
England. Fiom various portions of
Russia came 12.000,000 pounds, mostly
coarse wools; and we received 0,000,000
pounds also from China, and nearly as
much from the Turkeys. Altogether,
the United States imported during the
fiscal year, 101,518,521 pounds of wool
at three ports Boaton, New York and
Philadelphia of which 6 per cent was
-of class three, 40 per cent of class one,
and 4 per cent of class two. The United
-States produces a very large quantity of
wool, but it i ears much more, and needs
the wools of other countries.
