The Homo of John JOusten JBurncd to the Ground Wednesday- The flre whistle sounded Wednes- " day afternoon for the flisb time sinee£ the Althouse dry kiln-burned. 'This time ib was on account of flre which completely destroyed the .home of John Dusten at the east end of State street. The firemen responded to bhe alarm, but before they reached the burning building, hungry flames had done the work of destruction. But their services were of no avail owing to there being hot enougb hose to reach the house from the nearest hydrant. "Mr. Dusten had been building aa:ow boatandheand his son, Monroe, were barring ib. The bOF was watching the ketble of boiling bar in the house when his abtention was called from it by his father, bub scarcely had be passed the threshold when fche highly infiamable liquid ignited. Mr. Dusten rushed into the house, grabbed the kettle or tar and attempted to throw it out into fche yard, bub because of the intense h'eab and suffocat- ing smoke he dropped bhe ketble. Almost iustanbaneously bhe whole building was enveloped in flames, and nobh- ing of the contents was saved excepting a few pieces of furniture and half a dozen books. John was quite badly burned by tbe tar and suffered considerable pain from inhalation of smoke but his injuries are not serious. The.- house was nofc insured. iSTone bub those who have had asim- ilar loss can realize the feelings of one who is obliged to stand by and see his home go up in smoke, A papet was circulated ana many - of our cibizens made donations, eibher Of Cash or household goods.
