Johnstown Enterprise: Fire of un
known origin practically destroyed the
ice house and baggage rooms belong
ing to the Northwestern Railway com
pany at Long Pine on Monday night.

gage rooms and after burning them
well down was conquered by the fire
department A few hours later the ice
house, located close to the baggage
rooms was discovered to be on fire and
the flames had gained such headway
that the building was well nigh a
total loss. A construction gang for
the company was immediately set to
work clearing away the debris and
started construction work. As the
company is this week starting its an
nual ice harvest at Valentine, it will
doubtless be much inconvenienced by
the loss of the storage house at the
Pine just at this time.

night Oakdale will play here. The
girls were not as successful as the
boys were for they took the short end
