L'AxsE, Mich., May 11. —The fire which swept through this place during the day burned itself ont at midnight. The entire town, except a few scattered houses, was destroyed.

ASHLAND, Wis., May 11.—This city experienced a great fire Saturday. Half a million dollars' worth of milling property and lumber went up in flames, and three and possibly four men lost their lives. The fire started in W. R. Durfee's lumber dock. The mill was surrounded by water, with wooden tramways leading to the shore. When the flames burst put in great volume and enveloped the mill and the clock, all the men but four succeeded in reaching the tramways. The origin of the fire is still a mystery, but it is presumed that a spark from some employe's pipe started the lumber pile on Durfee's clock. The distance between Durfee's and the Shores Lumber Company's clocks is only fifty feet, so the fire jumped across the short stretch of water in fifteen minutes after it had started.
