Herman Dall's Business Burned
The blacksmith shop, plumbing es

Herman Dall was burned about the
noon hour last Saturday when the
exhaust from the engine charging
the battery of cells, which he had
for lighting his place of business and
which he has for sale. Mr. Dall had
gone to his dinner and left the plant
charging, which is the way which
this is done, and having left a can
of gas setting on the floor near, in
some way the exhaust throwing a
spark occasionally had ignited the
gas, and the building was consumed.
The fire was but small when Mr.
Dall returned from his dinner and
he rushed into the place to see if he
could not extinguish, when he ob
served that the can containing the
gas was just igniting, and rushed
away only in time to escape the
swish of the gas as it came from
When the alarm was given every
both men and women rushed to the
scene to render what assistance they
could, but however heroic they work
ed, they could not save the place,
though the other buildings were none
allowed, to burn by the hard "work
of the citizens. Mr. Dall surely ap
preciated the work of the people. He
is not as yet certain whether he
will build or purchase a place for his
BUILDING IS BURNED
The huilding at Murdock occu
pied by Herman Dall with his stock
of implements, gasoline engines and
machinery supplies, was destroyed
by fire the last of the week and the
loss to the owner will reach a very
stiff figure. The building was only
partially covered by insurance while
the loss to the stock will be fairly
well protected by the insurance.
Mr. Dall had been running his
lighting plant to generate Juice for
the batteries and had left for dinner
leaving the engine running as it was
of the kind that automatically stops
when sufficient current has been
generated. Attached to the engine
was an exhaust pipe and this be
come quite heated and set fire to a
part of the wood work that had
gasoline spilled on it and thus the
building was soon In flames and by
the time the owner arrived It waa
impossible to check the blaze.
People who have been helped by
