The blaze was the moat spectacular and disastrous that has been seen In tho city, A more Ideal building for a lire than the mill could not bo found. It se^ns that no time elapsed from the discovery of the Are until �he whole structure was a complete lUusB of flames. The mill and olovatoi' was six stories high.

The mill lias been shut down putting In new machinery, and according to tho monagei' every door should have boon locked. The fire door, the main one lending to the elevator, the fire diief fouiid open, and tho interior of tho building a mass of flames.
