Woodland Daily Democrat (Newspaper) - January 28, 1911, Woodland, California Y , X J-*. wpp. if I V I- st a ti I isiikii I sr. a WOODLAND. CALIFORNIA. SATURDAY EVENING. JANUARY UMI DAILY ESTABLISHED UTT STEAM LAUNDRY IN MEMORY OF TAKEN SY FIRE ANDY M’GLORY The Knudsons Had Invested About $15,000 Insurance Covers but a Fraction of the Loss—Cause of the Fire Not Known yA Steps Taken to Mark Mexican War Veteran’s Grave Penniless and Sightless He Spent His Last Days After Prominence and Prosperity The Woodland Steam Laundry is a mass of ruins. The building as well as all the contents was either destroyed or ruined by a fire that occurred at an early hour this morning. An employe at the livery stable oTi the opposite side of the street says he saw a light in the building about o’clock this moiling and that was probably the beginning of the fire. Sev era! parties saw a bright light shining through the window about 6 o’clock aud un alai in was turned In. The response by the department was prompt, but a fire inside a corrugated iron building is very hard to fight and about all tho flrement could do was to <onflue the flames to the building. There wus a rumor that a deluy was caused because the engine could get no water. That, however, is not true. Mayor Mitchell was at the waterworks nfter the fire was out and all the tanks were nearly full. The origin of the fire is unknown. Mr. KHudson has a theory that it caught from the electric wires but there Is nothing to base that on except thut the lights were flickering iu that part of town prior to the discovery of the fire. Col. Osborn says there were no wires on the second floor, whore the fire Is supposed to have started. He says the wire runs In the building through a metal conduit arid the wiring was perfect. Mr. Hell, whose duty it is to turn off all the gas, made the rouuds lust night about 8 o’clock and Mrs, Knudson, who is generally the last one to leave the building, is confident that there was no fire qf any kind when the building was closed at the close of the day s work. Mr. aud Mrs. Knudson had fitted up rooms on*the second floor. The work was just completed friday aud they expected to move into them and re side there on aud after February lith Most of the week’s washing was delivered on Friday. There were only sui Ii clot hee on hand as could be warned and delivered today. The plant was equipped with the latest aud hest machinery. Mr. and Mrs. Knudson purchased the business about two years ago aud they put in the very best machinery they could get for a plsnt of that capacity.

Is burled in Winters In an unmarked grave. He came to California in J849, and engaged in mining until In 1852, when he located in Yolo county, near Winters, and engaged in farming. For many years he was a prominent and prosperous citizen, but was finally overtaken by adversity aud died blini and penniless. In 1909 he became an inmate of the county hospital, but after remaining here for a couple of mouths was sent to the Soldiers' Home He remained there but a snort time and was taken to Sacramento, where he died. Old friends gave him decent burial iii the Winters cemetery. A few months ago some of the old residents who kuew him when lie was prosperous, while discussing the matter, deplored the fact that no headstone marked his last resting place aud expressed a willing ness to subscribe a fund to buy, place aud erect a suitable monument to his memory. They were informed that congress by special act bad pro Tided a fuud for the express purpose of n urkiug the graves of old soldiers who died in indigent circumstances, but that it w'ould be necessary to fur-nlsn the war department witii the ne-ressary informal iou iu relation to bis enlistment, service aud discharge. An investigation was started with the result I hut it was ascertained that •he wus mustered into service November 9, 1847, at Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, us first lieutenant of Captain Kowley's company, LHsiict of Columbia and Maryland volunteers,* subsequently kuown us Colonel Hughes' regiment, lo serve during the Mexican war. He was present wheu General Santa Ana surrendered his sword to (Jenera! Scott. He wus honorably discharged at Pittsburg oil July 18. 1848. Soon after the passage of the special aet of congress Mrs. E. S. Farnham of this city, whose husband is a veteran of tne civil war, interested herself in the matter with the result that she has secured a large number of headstones to mark the graves of Mexican aud «ivil war veterans who are burled iii lh© city cemetery of Woodland uiid elsewhere in the county. The records have been turned over to her and uo doubt the monument to the memory of Andy MeClory will iii due time iii Uh ai© his last earthly resting place NOW FOR THE THIRD WEEK OF OUR Big Shoe Sale THE VALUE GIVING EVENT OF THE SEASON An Unusual Sale of MEN S S3 OO and S3 50 12 in.
