A SLIGHT BLAZE.
The blacksmith shop at the round
house caught fire from one of the forges ,
Monday afternoon , and but for the
prompt and effective work of the com-
pany's fire fighting service might have
been destroyed. The company is well
provided with the best of hose and with
the good water pressure to be secured at
that point and the active efforts of em-
ployes the incipient blaze was soon controlled -
trolled with but small damage to the old
and practically worthless frame shell
used as the blacksmith shop.
The city fire department also promptly -
ly responded to the alarms sounded , but
as the apparatus had to be taken to the
west end of the yard to secure a crossing
and had to wait at this point until a long
freight train passed-No. 77-the boys
arrived too late to render any service.
But they got a good-natured roast from
the round house department.
The company needs a better equipped
and more commodious building for its
blacksmithing department , and it is
hoped that the old shell may be demol-
islied instead of repaired , and a new
building erected more in keeping with
the company's other equipment at this
place , and the demands of that depart-
General Supt. Calvert and other Burlington -
lington officials recently visited I'latts-
mouth , mapping out work for the coni-
pany's shops in that city. Additions to
the working force are being made at the
shops almost every day , while the working -
ing time has been increased to nine hours
for every day of the week. The company -
pany has over 1ooo , bad order freight
cars on its storage tracks adjacent to
that city and by reason of the excellent
crop outlook all over the state , which
indicates a liberal freight for the railroad -
road , that city will enjoy a full share of
the returning prosperity so close at hand.
Lou Wilburn has been offered a position -
