John stepped to on-e side and avoided tho falling shower of bricks and mortar. One struck the hoel oC his shoe, however, and ripped It open. "Fat" ran directly away, going in the direction of the falling chimney. Although ono more step would havo cleared h i m , he was caught by t.be full force and went down under tho debris. His companions thought ho must have been killed but he was stirring when they reached him. His overcoat had been virtually rJjiped from hl« back and there was a large gash ID tho »ack of his head. Glffln was rushed horn by automobile, given medical attention ind then removed to his home. Ho was able to be about today but ie- '"=·"" soro through the body. His right arm is nearly black from Uralses. The structure, a two-story six- room, was completely destroyed by the llamas which were believed to have originated in the belfry. It was thought likely t h a t sparks from the chimney ignited tho shingle room. The belfry is located above tho front door. It WHS said t h a t the stoves did not become overheated. Only two of tho rooms were being usrd for school purposes, both bclnu located on" (he first, lloor. Seven grades wore- romhiiM.efJ in the building, the e i g h t h jrraders being sent to Trotter.

While there was no immediate danger of the sparks flying to the huge creosote tanks oC the company, the firemen remained on the scene. The creosote Is valued at $100,000. Inasmuch as tho blaze had gained headway, there was no chance of any portion of. the building being saved, ft was estimated that the loss, inc l u d i n g the building and oqiiipmcvii., would foe between $5,000 and $6.000.
