Established in 1855 fire threatens a a the Borough of Washingtonville was thrown into a furore of excitement yesterday morning when it was discovered that the Public school building was on fire. Citizens responding quickly to the Call for Aid succeeded in getting the fire under control with hut Small loss to the building. The school which is taught by Miles Derr was in session at the time and it was one of the pupils who discovered the fire. Great excitement ensued in the school and the children coming from the building spread the alarm. In a remarkably Short time people from All Over the Little Borough came tramping to the scene carrying buckets tubs and recept Dos of any description that would hold water. The fire was in the loft of the building which is very hard of Access on account of there being no opening from the outside. It Mas necessary therefore to take the water into the loft through a Hole in the ceiling of the school room. The loft was dark and the air thick with smoke but the flames soon succumbed to the determined efforts of the fire fighters. The fire is attributed to the fact that the pipe leading from the stove was too near a Joist in the loft and of account of the cold weather a heavy draft was kept of the stove which served to ignite tin timbers. The loss to the school property is inconsiderable. No session m As held yesterday afternoon but school m ill he resumed this morning As usual. Independent Telephone line.

They want to string two my ires of the poles of the latter company connecting the Independent system with Danville Exchange. Just what arrangement with reference to the m ires they will make with the United Telephone people or whether the two companies will be Able to get together at All can not be determined at this time. The group of banners see some advantages in being of a Liue wholly with themselves where they Mould be required to share in the responsibility of keeping up Only a limited number of poles. They believe that the service would be perfectly satisfactory by reason of the proximity of the new system to Danville and the ease and in with which they might get their wires carried into the Exchange at that place provided of course that the United Telephone company agree to accept their proposition.

A according to his own confession he 1 was Given to drink Aud it was a question whether his derangement of mind is temporary the result of a prolonged is Perni agent following As the result of other causes.
