tho unex'octed big fire broke out
which wlpeil three of tho frame build,
lugs out of existence lit the business
district of this clly.
The ilro broke out in the Horburger
building, from some unknown causo,
which was occupied by George Trotter
(ts a vulcanizing shop, and was discov
ered by Marshal Phillips who turned
in the alarm.
. Tho fire departmont responded quick
ly but the fire gained rapid headway
on account of tho fact that there was
no water pressuro and they worked
under diUlcultics. It soon spread to
the Dlederlch buildings, one of which
was occupied by Jacob Petersen ns a
cream station and feed store aud the
other by Henry Dlcdeiich as a shoe
store and repair shop.
Mr. Trotter had sold his business to
his brother, Roy, and Mr. Fred lime",
but the new proprietors as yet had not
taken possession and no stock or II x
tut os were saved. The stock was In
sured for Sl.lOO. Mr. IIcrburger did
not carry any lustiruuce'on the build
Considerable flour and olllce fund,
ture was removed fioin the cream
station aud Mr. Petersen's loss was
covered by lusur.ince.
Part of the hhoe stock and repair
machinery was removed frou-'Mr,
Diode-rich's store, but owing to the fact
that lie carried no insurance on his
stock or this building his loss was very
heavy. He carried some insurance on
tho building occupied by the Petersen
We have not learned whether Messrs

them and erect buildings that will be'
a credit to the business district of tills

The Three Million
THOMAS A. EDISON invented the phon
ograph in 1877, Later he improved his
original phonograph to a point where his
business advisers said to him ; " You now have
the best phonograph in existence. Let's go
ahead and market it."
Mr. Edison shook his head and replied : " I
am not going to put out a new phonograph until
it is so perfect that its reproduction of music
cannot be detected from the original music."
Thomas A. Edison spent three million dol
lars in cold cash to develop an instrument which
matched the human voice and all kinds of musi
cal instruments so perfectly that the original
could not be told from-the reproduction or RE
CREATION, as it is now called.
Wc arc prepared to sell
you today, for &205, an
exact duplicate of Edison's
three million dollar phono
graph. You tnay even have
