was the proprietress was entirely destroyed ' by Are Thursday morning at 9 o’clock The fire started in one of the lower room and In twenty minutes the building was nothing but a heap of ashes Two babies were asleep In' the up par rooms when the fire was discover-ed but were rescued by their half-crazed mothers and no lived were lost which is considered almost a miracle as there were about twenty-five people staying at the hotel The guests departed for their respective homes with only the clothing they were wearing at the time of the fire The building was an old frame structure with but little protection against fire The guests lost many valuables and several found they had left thler purses behind them in their flight £lss Beatrice Plerrle of 168 North Limestone street was one of the f nests and arrived in Lexington hursday evening another was Miss Abbie U Dailey of Pemberton avenue A LEADER reporter called to see Miss Plerrle Friday morning and learned the particulars of the fire from her She is of the opinion that ignition took ’place from the escape of natural gas out of Imperfect fixtures and pipes At almost anytime she said one could detect the odor of gas when entering a room or going out into the halls but as all windows were left open constantly they did not consider it sufficient to be injurious This would seem to account for the building’s being consumed in so short a time Miss Plerrle and several other guests had gone for a walk to Hazel Green and finding the hotel was burning ran back as fast as possible only to see the building fall in ruins She lost her gold watch and several other pieces of JeWelry and every article of wearing apparel she had taken to tht springs except a' rainy day costume she wore for the walk to Hazel Green A Miss Shankltn of Mayslick had the largest loss of clothes jewels and money Mrs Smith the proprietress has a home in Hazel Green to which she and her family went Swango Springs had had quite a successful season and she was expecting a large number of guests for the remainder of the fall season who now of course could not find a place to stay as the hotel was the only available building
