An interesting letter has recently
been received from Frances Botken
and Vesta Foxworthy, who are teach
ing in the high school at Newport,
telling of their narrow escape from a
praixie fire which threatened to de
ftrey the town.
School was dismissed and the boys
were sent to fight while the girls were
supplied with buckets and gunny sacks
to fight back the Are and kcjp the
flames from crossing the road and set
t!ng fire to th town. Thirty-fi" hay
e,aks were dtstroyed and for hours
the fire burned fiercely, altlough
everyone who was" able fought as hard
could. People along the edge of town
who were in immediate danger, packed
th-,ir household goods into wagons
and prepared to move out. Suddenly,
after hours, of labor, the wind changed
and'the fire was gotten under control.
Miss Botken writes that it was the
most xriting experience she had had
fr cirny a day and that it will not
soon be forgotten, although, except for
scorched face and hands, there was no
serious injury to anyone.
