The school house in district Xo. 20,
known a3 the Oreapolis school house, out
on Platte bottom, and which is in the
neighborhood of Fred Stull and Charley
Vanderventer, was destroyed by fire last
night about 8 o'clock. There had been
school yesterday and no real facts have
been found for the cause of the fire. It
is thought by some that the house was
entered by tramps and carelessly set on
fire; and by others that it was fired by
some of the dissatisfied residents of the
-tlistrict. If the latter should be the case,
it would be just to give .them the full
penalty of the law for so dastardly an act.

A fire broke out at Pacific Junction
yesterday afternfiOn n the C. B. & Q.
depot, and the report was pirculated in
this city that the iuileliDg was complete
ly demolished, and that the fire was
spreading over the town; but we learned
later that there was no truth in the state
ment. The tiro originated in the bag
gage room and was started by a lighted
cirar or cigarette which had bean thrown
among some ruSbish. At first, from all
appearances and juelging by the progress
the lire had made, it was thought that
the building would surely burn to the
ground, but the work the men in the
vicinity indulged in, and the valuable
assistance rendereel by a couple of loco
motives to which hose were attached,
kept the fire under control and by perse
verance, extinguisheel it. During the
excitement the telegraph wires were torn
up and no communication coukl be hael
with the Junction except by telephone.
The damage is estimated at about $200
at the least.
