The Broken Bow district Sunday
school convention wns hold in the
U. B. Church last Saturday after
noon and evening anri Sunday after
noon. The attendance Saturday
was not as largo as it ought to have

esting to those who were there.

sisted of rnurfio , recitations and
select reading by the Baptise , U.

A Degtructlro Fire.
The bouso of J. L , MoWilliams
n the east part of the oily was
completely destroyed by fire be
tween twelve and one o'clock Mon
day night and a large part of the
furniture. It was by mere ohauoo
that tbe fire was discovered in time
for the inmates to escape with their
lives , The flro was well under way
the and roof of the kitohon'waa
covered with flames when discover
od. By chance Jas. Dooley , whoso
house is on the adjoining lot on the
east had loft his bed room window
up and Mrs. Dooley was awakened
by her room being filled with
smoke , When Mr. Dooley called
the MoWilliams , they were all
asleep , and before they oould drosn
and got their cloths out the tire had
made such headway that moat the
goods oould not be removed. The
fire bell which was rung by the
night watch soon brought the hose
company to the scene , .but before
they oould got the couplings made
they oould do no more than partial
subdue but not extinguish the lire
until the building was a complete
wreck. The largo number oi
citizens who gathered with buckets
by carrying water from the wells
and the oreek saved Dooley's housi
until the fire company arrived
Fortunately MoWilliams had his
house insured for 8000 whiol
covers the logs leas the furnitrro
and clothing which ho estimatot
worth $15C. Jan. Nance had his
goods in the back room whore the
fire started and as they were no
insured his was a total loss. There
was no stove nor had been no fir
in the room whore the fire started
and the cause of the tire will eve
remain a mystery. It is probabl
that mice and matches or fire from
.tho . locomotive was the oauso.
