Our town night was again visited by the tire trend the Haines this time selecting As their prey the Reading Iron works and but Little More now remains of the Large Plant which for years past has been the main dependence of our town but a mass of blackened ruins. The tire broke out about 10 30 of clock in the 16-Inch or bar Mill. When discovered the Haines were a Piug their Way into one of the beams of the Tower around the upright boiler at no. 0 heating Furnace. The Mill Hose was at once attached to the company a plug which was situated conveniently near. But owing to some cause there was a woeful deficiency of Force and although the burning Timber was not More than Twenty five feet from the ground the Stream could not be made to reach it within ten or twelve feet. The Haines gained rapid headway and were soon beyond control. The town was alarmed by the hoarse whistle of the Mill. Loud and Long it blew and never before did a whistle throw into its times so much of warning and desperation. The different engine houses of the town took up the alarm while each company hurried to the burning Mill which by this time was partially enveloped in flames while lurid drifts of smoke ascended skyward. The tire department rendered Good ser vice service which trader Ordinary conditions would have been effectual in subduing the fire but unfortunately Here the were contending against conditions which rendered their labors next to futile. In connecting the Hose the plug on Northumberland Street South of the Creek was broken the water welled up from its base and escaped from the plug in a heavy Stream which it was impossible to Stop the How materially weakening the general pressure of the water so that it was Only at intervals that a Stream could be made to reach to the roof of the burning Mill. Meanwhile the fire spread. It originated in the new portion of the 16-Inch Mill which was built of North Carolina Pine. This was doomed in less than Tif teen minutes after the first alarm. The flames easily communicated to the 2uinch or kelp Mill thence to the Roll shop and on to the old or no. 1 puddle Mill. The timbers along the roof on the Interior of the Mill were heavily Laden with a Deposit of Fine dust of a highly combustible nature. Once communicating to this dust the Llames ran along the timbers As if fed by a Stream of gun powder enveloping As they swept on the dry and seasoned Woodwork that supported the roof. No human Power was Able to stay the Onward Rush of the flames. To add to the difficulty there was an element of grave peril attending the fighting of the fire owing to the danger from bursting steam pipes if not the explosion of boilers. No one realized this More than the firemen themselves and the employees of the works who Laboured most heroically to save their Plant from destruction. Yet Meu took desperate chances. By 11.8 1 o clock it seemed evident that the entire Plant was doomed with the probable exception of the new puddle Mill. The greater part of the Mill was a mass of flames. As Section after Section of the roof fell in the. Massive steam Pis were rent in Twain which caused the steam to escape in immense volumes sending great masses of Haines and Sparks far into the sky producing a scene of indescribable splendor. About this time the water was Cut off from the broken plug which increased the pressure somewhat although it was still too weak to Cope with thu fire owing to the numerous streams in service. Shortly before Midnight the Borough lire engine was Calle j into service. It was placed of the Hank of Mahoning Creek tie tween Northumberland Street an a the d. I. Amp w. Railroad where it could be of service in preventing the spread of the tire toward the Southeastern part of the works. The engine Drew upon Mahoning Creek for its water and soon had a Strong and steady Stream at work. From this moment things took a turn. All hands Bent their energies toward confining the fire to the 16-Inch, the 20-Inch and no. 1 puddle null which were already practically reduced to ruins. So heroically did they work that before 1 of clock it was apparent that the no. 2 puddle Mill and the 12-Inch Mill would be saved. At 1 30 of clock the fire was practically under control the Onward sweep of the flames being arrested before they had fully devoured the old puddle Mill. A portion of the roof of this is still standing but the Interior it is feared is a general ruin. Elsewhere the destruction is Complete. The bar and kelp Mills the Roll shop and certainly a greater part of the old puddle Mill Are literally wiped out the massive engines the furnaces boilers and Rolls All being included in the general ruin. Fifteen minutes after the first alarm one thousand people had assembled at the scene of the fire in half an hour there were three thousand people on the spot. On the faces of All lit up by the Glare of the conflagration wits plainly to be seen a look Akin to dismay As the All devouring Haines crept Over the massive a Ltd of. Our town is justly proud of the historic old Plant that gave the first t rail to America and now that it seemed doomed to destruction on every Side were heard exclamations of deep regret. How the fire originated is a mystery it May have been caused by a Sparker. eloquent Sermon preached to members of the g. A. Sunday. Peikon Brief mention of the doings of your friends and acquaintances. The annual Sermon to the members of the g. A. Was preached by Rev. Or. M. L. Shindel at the Pine Street lutheran Church sunday morning sixty veterans being present in a body occupying the entire front of the Church. The decorations thoroughly in keeping with the event consisted solely of the stars and stripes. To the right of the pulpit leaning against the Wall was the new Post Flag. To the left in the same position was the handsome Flag of company a 132nd regiment. The pulpit and the Chancel rail were both concealed under the folds of a Large american Flag. At the right of the pulpit was a stack of muskets decorated with several Small hags belonging to the Post. Altogether the effect was most Beautiful and added to the impressiveness of the event. The pastor read the 46th psalm and followed with invocation. It was an Appeal to heaven on behalf of the aging veterans that Sank deep into the hearts of All Beautiful in its Elo ii Nch and re heating in every sentence la a pc and m m a Pathy for Fellowman and in attitude of Trust and Devotion toward almighty god. The choir Sang an Anthem very beautifully which was followed with the hymn a nearer my god to or. Shindel founded his Serm ii upon two passages of scripture ii chronicle 16th chapter y verse a henceforth there shall be wars a and Isaiah 2nd chapter 4th verse a nation shall not lift sword against nation neither shall there be War any or. Shindel very effectively explained away the apparent contradiction in the two passages. In the former text Tiu prophecy which has been amply fulfilled was made from a Point of View which still exists showing that conflict and the clash of arms must always ensue where nations put their Trust not in god but in Man adopting worldly measures ail seeking Alliance with other Powers. War is one of the ways god has of punishing his people for their idolatry and wickedness. Besides certain wars Are just in the sight of god such As ensure peace and bring Independence. Or. Shindel Drew a very Beautiful picture of the world under the reign of perpetual peace described by the latter text when a the sword shall be forged into plough shares and the Spear into pruning our eyes May not behold it he said but it will come. Or. Shindel closed with some timely and sympathetic remarks addressed directly to the members of the g. A. K., dwelling upon the inroads that time is making upon their ranks of the Fate of their comrades fio lie in unknown Graves and admonishing them of the duty they owe to themselves in preparing for the great change that awaits All on Earth.
