An Applegate Residence Burned.
The dwelling of AA’. F. Wright, whose
place i» a mile west of the Applegate
postoffice, was destroy ed by fire Tuesday
evening at X o'clock entailing a tot d los»
with no insurance. Mr. and Mr». AA’right
were away at the time being at the home
of Henry Rehkopf, whose wife is their
daughter, and who has been ill for the
past two weeks. The onlv person at the
house was a young man named James,
recently from the East, and it was by
his thoughtlessness that the fire originat
ed. He had occasion for a light and
used a candle setting it on a table with
out a holder. He then went out to the
barn and soon after he saw that the
house was afire. He endeavored to save
some of the things but in his excite
ment saved nothing, and by the time he
got the neighbors notified the house was
a mass of Hames. Even the fruit house
was burned which contained a liberal
supply of canned fruit recently put up bv
Mrs. Wright. The loss is a severe blow
to Mr. ami Mrs. AA’right who are not in a
position to readily replaee their home
ami it is probable that the settler» of Ap
plegate will extend them a helping hand
in their time of trouble.
