I The town was full of excitement j Thursday morning, when Abe Park- ier's store burned to the ground. Mr. i Pa'i-ker went over to Kiunondale at i the morning, and left a fire i burning, and' this, he thinks, caused the calamity., as there was a bole in ithe floor and the cefiing of the upper [storey when it was seeu first, and it I is thought that the galvanized iron j pipe burned out. A dray-wagon load of merchandise was saved, and also the counter and scales. The building and the stock were insured. The two stores beside the burning store, with- only 25 feet between them, were luckily saved by wet blankets and water-soaking. Lomond wi'ii be cut .off from com-1 munication with the telephone line, as the teler.h'OTie exchange was in- stalled in the above fated building. Messrs.
