Fire broke out about 12:15 Saturday-
morning in the drug store owned by
L. T. W. Reynolds and the alarm was
sounded in a short while after. The
fiire seemed to have started in the
space between the ceiling and roof
and this made it very difficult for the
department to handle, the difficulty-
being complicated by the fact that the
alley in the rear was so cluttered up
with one thing and another that the
firemen could not get through with
their line of hose, some of them claim,
and had to take the line through the
Busy Bee Cafe.
Working diligently the firemen held
the blaze to near the point of origin
and kept it from breaking through
Into the front of the building, until
the engine was steamed up and a
stream with heavier pressure given.
The pressure from the street plug was
quite strong all the time. A little be-
fore 1 o’clock the fire was out and the
water cut off.
The smoko was very dense and acrid
but the men at the nozzles stuck to
their work, though several of them
were near being overcome and had to
be almost dragged from the building.
W. C. Jordan suffered a painfully in-
jured hand in the fight with the blazo.
The chief damage to the drug stock
seemed to be from confined heat and
the steam condensed when the cold
stream was turned into the super-
heated air inside the store.
The building was insured through
Boone & Co. for $2,000 in the Aetna
and the Northwestern National, in
equal amounts. It is presently esti-
mated that the building is damaged
about $1,000 The drug stock is insur-
ed for $1,000 in the German-American
and $5,500 in the Druggists’ Indemnity
Exchange of St. Louis, all through
Boone & Co., and it is estimated pres-
ently that the stock has been dam-
aged about 50 per oent-
The new motor truck, being practi
eally dismantled, did not make the
run to the tire, but the horse truck
took its place and was followed by
the engine. The motor truck had been
partially dismantled owing to some
difficulty being experienced with the
“clutch” which has not been working
smoothly as to its ball bearings and
a new piece is being awaited from the
factory, the cost of which will fall
upon the makers and not upon the
city, is the explanation given as to
why the motor did not make the run
There is nothing broken about the ma-
chine, nor was it found impossible to
crank the engine, such reports having
been put in circulation Saturday fore-
noon. No effort was made to crank
