"Forty below!" said th« retired railroader. Mora appeasing was made necessary by this, so we reprint • the following from the paper for 90 years^ ago this week: • , "The steam mill of John Gaus and William Craw-' ford situated on Miner's" Run in Clinton Co,iinty wa"s burned to the ground on Thursday night last between,. 9 and 10 o'clock. \ • „, "The fire occurred through the watchman snuffing, an oil lamp and throwing the remains on the sawdifst.', where oil and grease were freely used. .. .. . ', , t >. "It is said by the employes of the mill that \vater- was convenient and was thrown'iipon the fire Im^i*- diately, but it spread so rapidly that they could not con-, trol it.. , ....••",-" "About 950,000 feet of sawed lumber was burned, on which there is an insurance of $15,000." , More important to both counties wag an account. of a big business deal which had been completed a >short time before. • .-. • •• "The saw and grist mill situated oa Pine Creek about two miles from this place, and formerly, owned by Phelps, Dodge & Co., was sold by E. R. Campbell & Bro. last week to A. Wentz, of Wayne Township, Clinton County, for $13,000. "It is the intention of Mr. Wentz to repair th« property and commence operations immediately. Th«. property is valuable and was purchased for a very low figure." :
