Watch Our Window for the Beautiful Art Calendar 75c, Valuable BUIIding Destroyed by Fire Thursday Night—Origin of Fire Unknown—Adjoining Property Saved by Village Firemen. The town of Chautauqua suffered a heavy loss, not only in a financial way, but as well in an inconvenience to the school work of the town, wheu the Union School Building situated just outside the Chautauqua Assembly Grounds was totally destroyed by fire at about midnight Thurs (light. The fire was first discovered by the crew of the Chautauqua Traction car that arrived there about midnight on its way to Jamestown. At that time the tire had gained considerable headway, the flames leaping from the windows of the front rooms on the first floor and enveloping the entire lower portion of the building. The motbrman ran his car down the line and back again several times continually blowing his whistle to arouse the villagers, who soon turued out in large numbers. At that time, however, the fire was raging so furiously that it was at once apparent that it would be of little avail to try to save it. Consequently, no hose was laid by the Chautauqua Fire Department and all efforts were turned toward saving the property of the Farr Lumber Company, about a hundred feet away. The firemen, aided by the other residents, who had been aroused, used snow with good results in this purpose. The origin of the fire is a mystery. There were no fires left burning in the building according to the statement of A. T. Gleason, the janitor, who stated that be let the furnace fire go out that day as he intended to clean the boiler the following morning. He said that when he visited the Bchool at 5 o'clock that afternoon, the fire had completely died out. The fact that the flames, when the fire was first discovered, were issuing from the rooms on the first floor also tends to substantiate the claims of the janitor that the fire did not originate in the boiler room. The Chautauqua Union School was erected in the year 1899 at a cost of about $20,000. It was a substantial brick structure containing eight rooms and had an attractive appearance. It was near the Traction Line and had been admired by thousands of summer visitors to the lake. The present principal of the school is George Ross. An insurance of $14,000 was carried on the building by the Board of Education, which will cover about twothirds of the loss. For a Man That we shall give away with purchases of $3 00 and over. We have on exhibition one of these calendars framed, to show the intrinsic beauty of the picture, prettier than any water .color or oil painting.

The 28th year of the Union Relief Assoaiation came to h close in November, and while the members regret that the conditions are such as to make it necessary for some of our people to have outside help, they are gratified to know that they have been able to give relief to a number of families during the year. As they have taken upon themselves the task of providing shoes for the school children, whose parents are not able to buy for them, a very large number have been supplied, and a large part of the money expended has been used in this way. It is not in a boastful spirit that the Association gives a report of what it is doing, but simply to let other people know that in a quiet way it is trying to help those who cannot help themselves. We extend our hearty thanks to those, not members, who have given j contributions during the year. Little Women Stationery Specials Steel Die Embossed Westfield paper, box 25 cents.
