Sc H. Oil Co., one block south of the Algona hotel, was solved, last Friday. Joe Kelly, water and light superintendent, making an inspection of a new sewer outlet, investigated a smell of gasoline, and found probably hundreds of gallons that had seeped from the former Champlln tank, into an abandoned and unused storm sewer. It was not charted on any city plats Kelly stated. The gasoline was drained off into the sewer without casual ty. Had anyone dropped a match Into the ditch before discovery o! the gasoline was made, part of the block would undoubtedly have been blown up. The K. & H. oil station put In a new tank last fall, and no seepage has been noticed since. * * • FIRE AT BURT destroyed the old part of the Burt school building, Sunday night Damage as estimated at between $20.000 and $25.000.
