MONDAY, JANUARY 26, 1914. Peebles Again Swept By A Disastrous Property loss estimated at $30,000 was suffered in a Mrioiu flrt, which raged for two hours in the village of Peebles, Adami county, Saturday afternoon and which, for a while, threatened the entire tnuiuws section along Main street of that town. The Are started in a barn in the rear of Edward Rotroff't livery b»rn and soon spread to MeU and Rotroff's hardware store and to Edward Rotroff's handsome seven room house, which was located in the path of the flames. So quickly did the fire ipread that the Rotroff barn with all its contents, including four horses and a cow, were soon consumed and the names leaped over to the Metz-Rotroff building in which was stored hardware, farm implements, etc. to the value of $28,000. This building, a two itory frame structure was soon reduced to ashes by the greedy flames. ihoi'iri,- uiui'l' II promptly BREAKS II COLD OPENSOSI1S "Pp«'« Cold Compound" ends ««vere colds or fripp* in a few hours.
