Fire destroyed the store of Pierson &0arr Dry Oooda Co. this morning, and tho stock with tho builiing is a total loan. The flames aud bent spread to the adjoining buildings and did much damage to the stock and stores of II. J. Bawtnan & Oo. and Pfeiffer & Bailey. Most of tho damage was to the stock, all tbo stores being heavily stocked for tha Christmas holidays. Tde origin of the flre is not certainly known, but it U thought to have started from a lire in tho furuaco in the cellar.. At fi o'clock the store of Pierson & Carr Dry Goads Oo. was discovered to be. Iu II unes an.I an aUrni was sent totno lire department through the telephone office. \\hon the first wagon of the lire department arrived the interior of the store was found to be a roaring furnace of ilame iu the first and second storioe, and the third story, which was unused, was threat- filed. A second alur/ii was sent in and tho reserve was cs.lied ost to an- s'st in lighting th.> lira. Six streams of water wero soon playiug on the fUmes, but the llromen were handicapped by a want of ladders. Fire Ohiof McD.ju.ild -aid, after it was over, that the lire could have been confined to Pieraon &. Uarr'a siore had !aidors been available with which to climb to the second story and pour watsi through the windows. Tbe Bremen climbed over the roofs of adjacent buildings with lines of hose, but found tin rools preventing water from being effectively used. The fiimes fed upon the immense stack ot dry gjodn in tbe Pioraon& Uarr store, aud literally dcstrojtd everything. A sky-light in tho'middle ol tho blore fill-nibbed a way "nd « drought tor tho flumes to f o t J Iho second story. The effect ol the iky -light is plainly visible all around it, tor nothing but ashes and other evidences of defctructiou remain of the building and. etock for twenty feet. The nrat floor of the store had bien decorated for the Christmas season -*iih a lijjht.

IntbeBowmaa store the erea test d image was done by water and smoke and in the Pfeiffer & Bailey etoie water alane did the damage. Mr H. M. Carr, secretary of tbe company, stated to a TBLEOBAPH representative that tbe loss of the Pierson & Oarr Oo. would be about $30,000, fully covered by insurance. At this eeason of the year the stock is unnsua ly large and a rough estimate of its value would be about that amount. The building belongs to the eetate of Norton Johnson of Philadelphia, and was a very old one. It can be replaced by a new one for about 86 000. The Pierson & Carr Dry Goods Co. had been iu its present quarters twenty years last August, and bus been iu business fince 1875, without interruption. It enjoys the reputation of being one of the first business houses of importance in this part of the country and In its misfortune now will have many to offer sympathy and regrets. Mr. W. H. Humpidga, of H. J. Bowman & Co., today estimated his firm's loss at 815,000 and insurance on tbe entire stock was about tbnt amount. The Bowman store building is not much damaged except by water and the interruption of business will not be for long. It is owned by the Bowman estate. Mr. Pfeiffer said that his loss would anount to probably 85,000 and his IL- sarnnee IB 82,500. The office of Architect L Pfeiffenberger over the store of Pfeiffer & Bailey was damaged to the extent of $1,000. Flames from the third story ot Pierson & Oarr'a store entered the olllce, and water wet valnible papers and p'aus. Mr. Pfeiffenberger stated that his loss would be 91,000 on office property. The building is owned jointly by Mr. Pfeiffenfcerger and Shurtleff College. Is all we ask for a watranted 20 year Gold Filled Ladies Watch. A genuine snap. Only a few at this price.
