town Monday. : H.08PER8 HITS. Monday morning the cry of "Fire!" startled the business portion of town and the general merchandise store of John Zeldenthuis was found to be burning. Fire had started between the ceiling and roof from a defective flue. Every body laid hold and assisted as much as possible. A. hole was chopped in the roof and in a very short time the flames were extinguished. A strong east wind was blowing at the time and if the blaze had gotten beyond control the result would have been disastrous indeed. This is the first fire we have had in several years.
