VERY LITTLE INSURANCE. U~~-4 V. 0 £.."• --- C^r ^„r,V .«.: '. ,°s "-vg^i.1. ^ Ji"!."S<' fc, _M_ m Most of our citizens were very much surprised to learn, upon coming down town this, Friday, morning,that tlie Clare grist mill had burned to the ground during the night. The ' fire occured at about midnight and the first one to discover it was John Dustin, who lives at the east end of 8tfc street. As the mill is situated too far out to be reached with water, he did not give the alarm,but hastened to the mill. Upon reaching it he found that the inside was ubout all burned, the ontside walls seeming to stand after the inside had been consumed. The origin of the fire is a mystery, and as water power is used and there had been no fire in the small boiler in the mill since 3 o'clock in the afternoon and when the mill shut down at 6 it was completely out. Also, before leaving the mill the machinery had ben.examined to see if there were any hot boxes, and there were none. Consequently, the only conclusion to draw is that the fire was started by some miserable scoundrel. The mill was erected about 4 years j ago and is, if we are not mistaken, the only institution in the city which was erected by outside capital. The mill was just beginning to gain a wide reputation for the quality of flour turned out, and farmers would come from as far as Mt. Pleasant on the south and near G-ladwin on the north, with their wheat, etc. Thus it was the. means of bringing trade to our merchants which formely went to other places.

This severe loss was covered with a very small insurance. . Mr. Geo. H. Waldo, who has been the prime factor in the mill's development, is undecided whether it will be rebuilt, or not. If it should be, the former site will not be chosen, but one down town using different power.
