While tho denizens of this quiet city
wero tinnquilly reposed in thoqtitotude
of Morpheus, lust Monday night, tho suit
balmy atmosphere vibrated with the
wicked sounds of the lire boll und tho de
sultory shouts of excited citizens.
In the north-west part of town the
heavens shown with a lurid glare, and
it was noon ascertained that tho palatini
residonco of It, F. Mizer wan ablaze.
About ono o'clock tho smoko becamo
ho dense in n room upstairs, occupied by
Miss Trix and hor little sister, as to set
tho littlo ono to coughing severely. Misa
Trix arose hastily nnd cutting tier broth
ers in nn adjoining room hastened down
stairs to call her parents. Immediately
tho family were all aroused, and Mr.
Mizer after visiting every room in the
houso to discover tho origin of the tire,
wont outsidenndafteraslight investiga
tion discovered tiro in tho cornice. He
immediately set up ladders and dashed
water on tho burning portion with seem
ingly good effect but ho soon discovered
that othor portions of tho building wore
on tiro nnd that it would bo perfectly
useless to attempt to extinguish tho
Humes alone. The llames had evidently
gained much headway now but wero yet
well concealed, Mr. Mizor'H eldest son
Max dashed away to ring the tint-bull,
whilo the other members of tho family
remained, and ut.empted to remove
Homo of the furniture. The lire com
puny urrived in good timo and tho most
strenuous efforts were mudo to quench
tho fire. But tho house wnsan extreme
ly high one and html to reach, yet the
llnnies wero subdued before tho building
was ontiroly consumed. Tho majority
of tho furnituro contained in tho sitting
room nnd parlor was saved, but most of
tho furnituro wuh burned. Much of the
Indies' clothing was saved but this was
thoroughly drenched by the city water.
Some of tho household articles which
Mrs. Mizor prized most highly woro des
troyod. Tho Insurance on tho, houso
wus ft. W0, und about $250 on contents.
Mr. Mizer will rebuild, but it is just yet
undecided when or where. It isneedless
to say they have tho Rympathyof all. und
nil people acquainted in Red Cloud do
not hesitate to say that Mr. Mizer'a
houso was tho most elaborate in the city,
and when Red Cloud, which only linn u
fow tine dwellings, loses tho most' state
ly and expensive ono of all and ono in
which our citizens havo ulwnys token
prido in pointing nut to strungors, it ia
naturally u source of soro regrot to every
one Mr. Mizer however surveys his
loss calmly, and whilo ho suys that 18000
would no moro than replace the building,
they fortunately escaped tho loss of their
littlo girl "Bubo." Sho wuh left up stairs
in u room aiono and in tho excitment of
the moment was entirely forgotton. Miss
Trix heard her cry and rushing up
stairs rescued her just as the Humes were
about to entur tho .room. Ah to tho real
cause, very littlo was known, but from
tho style of u threatening letter some
days previous to the lire, thero iaiifilight
suggestion of incendiarism. Tho lotter

Death of (tt, McAvov. Wm. Mc

known in business Circles; nttor a sick
ness of long nnd painful duration, do
partod this lifo last Tuesday night. Ho
was a sufforir from some tcrriblo stomach
discaso for a long time, and only a fuw
months sinco ho becamo unablo to walk
around and went to bed in his room over
Honry Cook's old drug storo. Thoro for
many days ho would romaln ulone, cur
ing nothing for company, nnd declining
but vory littlo to ent. Whon friends
would suggest n physician, ho would eiiy
solemnly, "It's no use, it's no use, I can't
last long; it's only a matter of timo with
me." But ho hud medical attendance,
und Mrs. L. D. Oatman with whom ho
bourded saw that ho had plenty to cat,
and warm clothes, etc. On Tuesday
night Mrs Oatman prepared for him some
nice delicacies sho thought lie would ent,
and Bent them by Sammy Spray to his
room ubout Ids usual supper timo. Ho
ate very littlo howover. and still seemed
strong as usual. Tho next morning R. B.
Fulton went to Mr. MoAvoy's room with
some duinties and utter repeatedly knock
ing at tho door with no response, ho
stepped into tho Gardner houso and ap
prised Mr. Oatman of tho fact. Both
then wont to tho room, and fulling to ef
fect un entranco, they called carponter
Jaok Reid who whb working closo by,
and with hia chisol pried open the door.
On ontoring tho room they could plainly
see that Mac waa dead, unit lying covored
up in bed ns though uslcop. Wm. Mo
Avoy was born in Canada in July 1830.
Ho bus had u varied experience during
his ontiro torm or lire, l'ersonally in

Wo.NDKnHUt.. Thoro are manystrango
things in this world for tho imagination
to feast upon, nnd for the eyo to behold,
yot man is always propnrod to moot with
greater curiosities and greater foaU day
by day, and this is why ws hare made '
onr caption "wondorful." Woll, to make
a long story ehart, J. II. Daiifl was bor
ing u woll on hia place the othor weok,
or that is- toeoy, ho was digging it by
proxy. Hour by hour the auger forced
its way through tho earth'a surface; lit
tlo by little, coming, aa It did,' in contact
with many stranRO and surprising ob
jects. Filially, -tho instrument of tor
turo had pierced Mother Earth to a
depth of 108 feat, and thero tho pro
fossor of wollology suspended oporutiona
until tho rosy morn should como again,
little dreuming that ho would tlnd a pre
historic race of "Hib-Hita," and that h'a
name would go thundering down the
agoa ub a great discoveror. Woll, in tho
morning the auger began to rovolve,
and whon it discharged its first burden
thoro camo with it the remains of "John
Rab-tilt," raised from it depth of 109
foot. Now that wo huve carriod our
readers to tho bowels of the earth, we
must got them out, so we shall call thoir
attention to tho fuel that ouo Jack rab
bit, whilo roaming at large, foil into the
well with u sickening thud nnd there
perished, and his remains were brought
to the surface nnd decently iutcrred.
That Hiuixik Tho bourd of supervis
ors uro certainly open to w vast amount
of criticism for thoir willful noglectin
repairing the lied Cloud bridgo across
tho river. Tho bridgo Is in a daogorous
condition, and is liable actually to cost
tho city ninny hundred dollars it not
fixed nt onco, Suppose, by- willful neg
loot, that u span should drop into tha
rlvor during Bomo good sized wind
storm, which would not bo improbable
iu its weakonod condition; and again,
supposo thut somo ono should cross It,
and it should full in nnd kill u man acd
team, who would bo responsible ? Surf
ly, It will bo the board. 8100 would re
pair tho bridgo and mnko it compara
tively ta'o until money would be avail
able to repair it proporly. It io u shame
and disgrace to jeopardize Buch -valuable
proporty by such dire neglect on tha
part of the propor officers. .
