While a clerk was turning down the lights in one of the display windows at Hubbell's store last night on closing, it flared against tbe light material that made up the window display and set it on fire.' In a moment almost, the whole interior of the window was a mass of flame. Passersby raised the alarm and the tire department was soon out. Before the department arrived, however, a young man took off nis overcoat and using it as a weapon went into the window from the inside. Before he could stay in, however, he nad to break out ihe glass of the inner windows to get air. He succeeded in keeping down the fire till Bert Hill and other members of the department got there with the Babcock extinguishers, but he did some damage to his coat and today Mr. Hubell made him a present of a nice new one.
