A fire in W. H. Matthies' tailor shop
111 tho littlo brick building adjoining
Mounts' bather shop on Box Butte
avenue, Wednesday evening at mx
o'clock, caused damage to the amount
of about $1,000, which was covcied 1
insurance to the amount of $800. The
cause of the fne was the igniting of
gasoline which Mr. Matthies was using
in cleaning clothing. After the use ut
the exploMe fluid, a hot pi easing iron
was applied to the cloth and immedi
ately flames enveloped Mr.Matthies and
while he escaped an almost miraculous
death by binning, his face and hands
weie evciely scorched. The small
room was fillod with uiuce goods, suits
and ovei coats, and while some of the
piopeity was removed, the gieator pait
was either entiioly destroyed or dam
aged. The depaitinent was on hand
promptly and succeeded in keeping the
flames within the confines of the tailor
shop by the free use of water. It was
a close call to a disastrous conflagration
as the scene of the fire is in the centet
of frame buildings.
