Citizens were summoned by the wife of former State Senator Samuel K. Robbins, who rang a large dinner bell at a window of her home.

An incendiary is blamed for the many conflagrations here. R. M. Haas was kicked thrice while assisting in taking eighteen horses from his barn. The total loss is about $12,000.
