The carpenters have a couple of cranes to build which will be the work of Only a Day or so. At several parts of the Mill the roof remains to be finished but this is a work that can proceed after the works Are started. The Only task which May cause delay is the adjusting of the blast pipes which Are some distance from completion. About 0 1"� of clock last night the entire heavens East of town were illuminated with a Ruddy glow which left no doubt that a fierce fire was raging in that locality. Hundreds of people breathless with excitement poured along East Market Street and other thoroughfares leading in that direction firmly convinced that the stove works or the shovel factory was burning Down. The fire proved to be at a dwelling owned by Henry Densberger on the Hill above the stove works North of Wall Street. The nearest fire plugs were at the stove works and the shovel factory. Beyond the reach of the longest Hose. The alarm of fire had been promptly sounded and each of the fire companies started out. But arriving at the upper end of the Borough and learning of the location of the fire they saw the utter futility of attempting to get any water on the burning House and therefore they turned and retraced their Steps. In less than half an hour after the fire was discovered the House was in ashes and nothing remained to show that a dwelling once occupied the site but a clothesline bearing the weeks Wash which was stretched where the Back Yard had been. Or Densberger an inspector at Howe amp Polk a is on night turn this week. His wife and four children were to spend the night alone. Mrs. Densberger with one of her children Little Ida. Was spend ing a Little while at a neighbors House. The other three children Harry aged 1-1 Herman 8 and Charles 0, were in the House alone and asleep. Mrs. Densberger returned just in the Nick of time to save her three children from being burned alive. She was no sooner on the premises than she detected the evidences of fire and in an instant the dwelling was in flames. By the time she got her children safely on the outside it was imi>08sible to re enter the House and every article of household goods with the exception of two comforts was consumed with the House. The House hold escaped with nothing except the clothing they wore. The homeless family was the object of much sympathy last night although kindly provided for during the night by neighbors. Or. Densberger explained to a reporter of this paper that the House a a two Story Frame with an out Kitchen was one which lie had built himself about two years ago. He valued it at about $900. He carried $700 insurance $500 on the House and $200 on the in Mitre. Or. And mrs. Densberger Are utterly at a loss to account for the origin of the fire. There were two Coal fires burning in the House but each of the flues it was stated was perfectly contracts for printing the Borough statement Are awarded. Narrow escape from death. Through the breaking of a scaffold at the Reading Iron works tuesday afternoon four workmen on the new building narrowly escaped being killed. One of the last appurtenances of the Mill to receive its finishing touches is the stack belonging to Furnace no. 7 in the 16-Inch Mill. This tuesday was being topped William b. Hauser and George Byers Brick layers and c. S. Pursell and Benjamin . Being upon the scaffold. The stack of no. 7 Furnace is one of those at the outer Edge of the Mill so that while the workmen on one Side were probably less than ten feet above the roof on the other they were supported at least fifty feet above the group 1 with nothing to intercept a fall. About 1 30 of clock there was an ominous sound of creaking timbers and almost at the same moment the scaffold which was heavily loaded with Brick gave Way beneath their feet and the four men found themselves along with a mass of timbers and Brick dropping through space. Fortunately they were All on the inside of the scaffold and in their fall thus were intercepted by the roof of the Mill. They did not escape All injury however the two Brick layers especially upon whom a perfect Shower of bricks and timbers fell were quite j painfully bruised although not serious injured. Frost nearly four feet deep. As a result of the severe Winter the Frost has attained unusual depth in the ground. Water has failed at Many r-1 is Dencks and business places during the last few Days the freezing occurring in the Street under three feet of ground. On West Mahoning Street yesterday the Frost was found to extend to a still greater depth and the water pipe uncovered by the plumbers was found Frozen solid Between the pavement and the water main Ira the Middle of the Street. The depth attained by the Frost which at Many places May be four feet is not surprising considering the nature of the Winter. The several break ups on the River were not accompanied by any material thaw in the ground and the process of freezing on land since last fall has gone on uninterrupted. Thicken and Waffle supper.

They shot a number of the insure cos including a Leader of the Bolo men who was badly wanted owing to the influence he exerted Over his band by whom he was regarded with All veneration of a god. It was not until after tin Leader was shot that his identity was discovered. His brother was also captured and paraded through the streets in order to show the natives to what extent they were in our Jagt wer. The native soldiers had been made to believe that by wearing paper sanctified in some Way by their superstitious Leader they could resist the american bullets. Hence the poor Savages exited themselves to peril in All forms and fell Lik flies before the american bullets. The dead bodies the letter says Lay around on All sides unburied in various stages of decay while the stench which had to be borne by the american soldiers was something intolerable.
