One of the Finest Homes in the City
Destroyed by Fire at an Early Early-Hour
Hour Early-Hour this Morning
. Most of the p'eople of Ocala were
greatly surprised to learh at break break-fast
fast break-fast this morning that the handsome
home of Mr. and Mrs. R. S. Hall, on
East Fort King, was a smoking ruin.
The fire was discovered a little be before
fore before four o'clock by, C. W. now, ,a
colored man, who runs a ; little res restaurant
taurant restaurant near, the Seaboard station.
Altho over a mile from .the fire, this
man was in better position to see it
than those nearer. Unfortunately, he
didn't think to run to a phone, rat
ran uptown to the fire station. Short Shortly,
ly, Shortly, after, Officer Pelot, who waCnear
the station, saw the blaze and Ibetoo,
ran to wake the firemen. These
tumbled out and manned their ma
chines in good time, and were soon at
the burning building. 1 x 4
About a: minute or two after the
firemen arrived, Mr. Hall, who had
just discovered the fire, came out on
the veranda and fired his revolver to
give the alarnV. He was surprised to
find the firemen in the yard. ?
As the firemen broke into the house
they found the fire in the elevator
shaft, which was sucking it into the
roof like the draft of a chimney. It
must have been burning an hour, but
had the water pressure been what, it
should" have been; the fire could have
been put" out. .'-'
To the great discomfiture ; of the
firemen, instead of the strong stream
they had a right to expect from the
hose, there was only a feeble gush,
that hardly went to the second tory.
The fire in the attic was clear out of
their reach. f
As a general thing there are plenty
of volunteers at an Ocala fire. But
at .this one the firemen had no help
for some time except the colored man
Snow. Hardly anybody seemed to
know there was a fire. This -was most mostly
ly mostly owing to the fact that the firebell
had not been rung.' l v
So the firemen fought the fire at a
great disadvantage, while the fine
house crumbled around them, and
there were not even enough people
to carry out the furniture. The sup-1
ports soon burned out "and the roof
crashed down an the second floor, and
not until all hdpe of saving the pro property,
perty, property, was gone did the needed water
pressure arrive. i
Mr. Hall and his son William were
the only people in the ly6use last
night. William discovered the fire
first and told his father. Mr. Hall
picked up his pistol and ran out on the
nearest veranda to give the alarm,
and found the fire engines in the
yard. He has no complaint to make
of the work of the fire boys, but says
if the water pressure had been what
it should have been, most of the
house and furniture could have been
saved. He thinks the fire eaught in the
attic, most likely from a" rat carry carrying
ing carrying a match up there. There was no
one in the house but ifimself and his
son, and no fire, and he doesn't think
it likely anybody set it on fire.
The house is a complete ruin. Only
the chimneys and the brick founda foundations
tions foundations remain intact; Very, little of the
furniture was saved.,

Swede Describes the' German
. Situation


Stockholm, Aug. 26. Germany is
still far from starvation or from the

substance of a report by a Swedish
journalist ; to the Associated Press.
The journalist has just returned from
several weeks 'stay in Germany and
at Marianbad, Bohemia.' He is an in intelligent

reports .from other travelers in the
last month.
In north Germany, particularly
Berlin,, there is a marked scarcity of
foodstuffs. Nevertheless, there is
enough for existence and the restau restaurants

portions without a meat card. Farm Farmers

Germany. Conditions improve as, one
goes south. Five thousand guests at
Marianbad hotels were served unlim unlimited

and cream. Hungarians who made up
a minority of the guests, brought
such a variety of foodstuffs with
them that they displayed almost "os "ostentatious

Good Service on Railways i
; People doing war work are earning
good wags and are well satisfied, but
the majority of the neople long for
peace at any price. The Swedish, jour journalist

He said: : !-'.'-V--4 1 ..--' ""-V-

"Thy have stopped talking about

and not because he has to.' I think
this fairly represents the majority

The reason so few knew of the fire
is the firebell was not rung. Ringing
the big bell has always been the work
of volunteers, and in former days 'it
was only necessary to yell "fire" to
cause a rush to the station. But the
boys who were always ready to fight

The report of the Senate airplane

bears out. most v of the complaints
made a few months ago and which
the cuckoos denounced as hot air. The

And we think the Briton is right.
The aims of a nation, as set forth by

people are biave and self-sacrificing.
"Stars and Stripes" tells us of the
death of Private First Class Albert E.
Scott, who died in the great Mame
battle last month. "Scotty," as his
comrades called him, was only fifteen

was probably the youngest America

thirty Germans byj the! fire y of1 his
machine gun when he felljwid was
killed by a party of treacherous Huns
who had pretended to STifrender.
