A CLOSE CALL.
Shiner camo nearhainga bad
firo Sunday night. As Julius Wol-
ters Wm Wendtland G A Panne-
witz Henry Meseer and Fritz
Berckenhoff were pausing tho cotton
platform about ten o'clock they
noticed an odor of burning cotton
and Mr. Wendtland discoercd firo
ina bale of cotton bought by Wol-
ters Bios. Tho bale was hastily
removed and the firo soon put out.
About forty pounds of cotton was
burned. Tho tire originated at tho
gin and was smouldering in tho
bale. Had it occured two or three
hours later Shiner would have had
anothor close call.
Tlia fire recalls the great fire of
August 28th 1891 at tho railroad
cotton platform' hero. Tho firo
bioko out at noonday. It was first
discovered by Sara Coleman who
was standing on the platform at
tho time. He attempted to stamp
it out and called for water but the
firo had obtained too good a start
and was soon beyond control. Did
you over see a cotton fire?. If you
lue not jou have missed Beeing
one of tho grandoBt sights in tho
world. As soon as the firo ge'8
under headway the bands burst off
of the bales and tho wind seizes
tho burning cotton and whirls it
hundreds of feet in tho air. forming
a"regular cyclono of flames. In
this cao 45 bales were soon spout-
flames high in tho air and the
heat was terrible. All tho north
half of tho platform burned and
ono car standing on tho side track
was badly damaged. The lees all
fell on tho railroad company.
