At 3 o'clock last Saturday morning Mrs. Mary Bliss, at 42 Washtoaw Ave., was awakened by a sound that seemed like the crackling of burning wood.

Blincoe, from Fort Scott, Kan., slept up stairs and three lady studeuts were in the house. They are Miss Evelyn Hills, Cleveland, O., Miss Cora Waite, Traverse City, Mich., and Miss Anoie Oliver, Onowa, Iowa. All had but scant time to partially dress and escape the flames. Mrs. Bliss lost everything but a few chairs. The house was insured for $1800 in the Ohio Farmer Gompany, at Le Roy, O., and the household goods at $500 in the Sun Fire, an Eiiglish company. Miss Hills lost diamonds worth $150, besides a fine collection of books and a valuable wardrobe. The other youug ladies saved much of their effects. Mr. Blincoe was a heavy loser in the way of clothes and books, aad as he is earning his own way through college, a purse of more than $100 was raised for him.
