(Special to tlie Herald)-The firo department had a long run last night to the extreme north end of town near tho river bridge to tho house of Mr. Wra. Tlns-le.v. Mr. TinHley was at the Coal Creek mines and his wife with their little son was up town. The building, a four roomed house, �was completely burned down. Nothing was saved and there being no insurance tho loss is total and a severe misfortune to tho family. The fire brigade arrived in good time but tho distance to the nearest hydrant was so great that it could not be reached with the ho.'ie. The walls of the building, which wore of logs, wore thrown down and tlio firo kept from spreading to an adjoining liouso. The stores of uniforms and other eauipmont-belonging to the 225tli battalion, are being moved Into tho big rink today by Capt. Skinner. They had been stored, .tompoi'arily, In a small store room up town. Lieut Col. Mackay and Capt. Barnes left this morning for Cranbrook and Nelson upon an official visit to the company headquarters of B. and C companies, and the Colonel will extend his trip to Grand Porks to inspect the work being done there with D company. There seems to be some liitch in the negotiations for' the macaroni factory as a barracks for A company, and nothing has yet been done towards litting it up for the use of volunteers. The Coal Creek mines will be idle tonight and tomorrow morning, owing to shortage of CJirs.

The Late Captain the Hon. A. T. Shaughnessy ABOvere shock was causftd through tha Dominion of Canada, especially In military circles, when it became known tho other day that Capt. tho Hon. A.T.C'Frod") SliHughncBsy, of tbe 60th Dattallon, had teen killed In action. Capt. S li a u g h n essy's Pfrlod of wrvlre at the front was very brief, as it Is hardly a month since the 60th went to Ifrance, and only about ton days since they Inlueu tho forces in the trnnches Nc details have yei bi'cn rt'telvpd us to how Capt SliiuiglincsBy met his death, save that he was instantly killed by bbrapnol on Saturday riiornlng, that he passed peacefully away and died like a man. It is not thought that any general action was taking place. A cable was received on Satur day afternoon by Mr. A. D. Mac-Tier, of thi C. P. ft., from Mr. George McLaren Brown, the Kuropean manager of the company, stating that hn had Just received a cable from Lieut.-Col. Gascoigne, of the 60th, announcing the death of Capt. Shaughnessy, and asking Mr. .MacTler to give the information to his father, I^rd Shaughnessy. A further message was received by Lord Shaughnessy, with tho brief statement that Capt. the Hon. Fred ShauBhnessy had been Instantly killed by shrapnel In action. Captain Shaufihnessy whs buried Immediately, following tho custom in war of burying officers and men near the place where they fell. Widespread sympathy is fell for l^rd Shaughncasy. and especially for Lady Shaughnessy. In their bereavement, which came with sudden shock, since Capt. Shaughnessy been so short a time at the front, while their only other son, Caiit. the Hon. W. J. Shaughnessy, heir to the barony, is also training for active service with the 199th Irish-Canadian Flangcrs. The death of Capt the Hon. Alfred Thomas Shaughnessy will cause a pang of grief to many friends, both military and civil, in .Vnnlrcal. lie was a very gallant Canadian gentleman in the truest sense of such a phrase, an honorable citizen, and a brave and capable ofTicer, full of enthusiasm In his work, and full of the spirit that makes officers beloved by tlieir men. This was especially shown during the long weeks of tr.iln-Ing while tlie 60th was at Vaicartler, where Capt. Shaughnessy was one of tlio most popular officers In the camp, always of a sunny disposition,, always Interested In his work and his men, and invariably ready to do whatever he could to advance their Interests as well as his own knowledge of work. He had little spare time there, but that ilttio he generally dpvoted to study and to i)ract|p|ng signalling, so as to increase his efflcicncy. He was a splendid officer, and his loss will be severely felt by the GOth. The late Capt. the Hon, Alfred Thomas Shaughnessy was born In Montreal on October 18, 1S87, he.being the second son of fthen) Sir Thomas and Lady Shauglinessy. He was educated at Bis-hoi)'s CollpfTP and Abingdon Schools, and McGlll University. While at McGill he was a member of the Zeta PsI fraternity. On leaving McGill he entered tho service of the.Cnnadlan Pacific Tlall-way Co., In order to learn business -netbods. He Started at the bottom, first In a subordinate position In the office of Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, and later In the Steamships Department, under Vice-President G. M. Bosworth, where he made himself liked on all aides, and won promotion on his merits, working through a number of departments. In 1906 he had the unusual experience of travelling around the world, from .Montreal to Montreal, on the trains and steamships of the C. P. R. Four years ago li" left the service of the C. P. R. and Joined the brokerage tlrm of Churies Meredith & Co., as a member of the firm. Ho had been tor a number of years an active officer of the .Ird Victoria Rifles, Joining that battalion as a subaltern In October of 1910. He was regarded as one of the most promising young officers of that battalion. When Lleut.-Col, Gascoigne undertook the organization of tho 60th Bnt-tallon tor overseas service, Lieut. Shaughnessy joined with rank as captain, for which he, with his brother, the Hon. W. J. Shaughnessy. qnallfied at Halifax. He took a keen Interest In recruiting and other work for the battalion went to Vaicartler with them, thence to England, and llnally to France for the service at the front which was to end so speedily for him. His brother-in-law, Capt. Heno Redmond, is second in command of his company-"A" of the 60th Battalion. He was married in .A.prll, 1011, to Jliss Sarah Polk tiradford, daughter of Judge Bradford, of Nashville, Tonn., and a descendant of President Polk, of tho United States, the ceremony taking place at Naahvllle. Two children were born of the marriage, 151iza-beth, three years old, and Thomas Bradford, one and one-half years. Mrs. Shaughnessy is now in London, having accompanied her husband to England when the regiiuont crossed.

"Somewhere in France," the men of a certain famous HIghlunil regiment wore having an impromptu concert. Presently there drifted into the tent, lured thero by tiie sounds of revelry, a sturdy Cockney niotor-drivur of tho A. S. 0. For soiue time he listened ttlipreclatlvely to tlie music; then ho suggested that he could oblige with a Scottish song. He was conducted promptly to the platform. Groat was tho applauso when tho pianist, after n whispered consultation, commenced to play a well-known tune. Advancing to the edge of tho "stage," the A.
