this was the largest number taken Into
an old lodge at one time, iu the state,
for the ast eleven years at least.
The order in thl city is enjoying a
degreo of prosperity hitherto unknown
iu its history. Its membership is com

up to date, and down to business, and
this lets you into tlie secret of their un

The Depot Burned.
Last night the II. & M.dopot nt this
place went up in smoke and till that is
loft is u charred heap of debris. The
tire was discovered between one and
two o'clock and an alarm vn$ turned
in immediately. The lire department
went immediately to tho scene of the
conllagration, and although they
worked with a will, the building was
too far gone and the water pressure
too weak to make their efforts effective.
Conflicting stories are told in regard
to tho manner in which tho lire started
and on account of some things which
have been going on lately in that
neighborhood It would uot bo a bad
idea for tho B. & M. officials to look
after tho matter.
Most everything in the building was
lost except sorao baggage, but as there
was very littlo freight in the freight
house tho damage hero was small. One
freight carjstanding ou the house track
was cousumed, but luckily it was
empty. 'I'I0 advertising car of Ring
ling Bros shows, which was ou tho
track near the building, was pushed by
the employes to a safe distance
After the first tiro had beon prac
tically out for an hour or two an alarm
was again turned in aud It was discov
ered that a house belonging to Fred
Peterson aud occupied by Jack Lantz
was in llamvs. This house stood over a
block from the first tiro and there is
considerable question as to its origin.
