One story is to the effect that the train that now runs from Monett to Elsworth, will only run to this place and a "plug" will be run between here and Elsworth; this would leave land give employment to four five men in the round house.i 'The other story is, that three passenger trains will be run to Burton from Monett each day, and make this the end of the division, with a "plug" service between here and Elsworth.

This arrangement would give employment to about fifteen men in the round house, outside of the crews that would be here a good deal of the time. We know notwhether those plans will be carried out by the company, but the above stories have been circulated in railroad circles considerably lately. We hope it will come topass.

The fire was caused by a barrel containing a patent roof paint, exploding in the yard of the Newton Lumber Co. Mr. Steen an employe in the lumber yard received serious injuries. The wind was in the south and for a time it was thought that the entire business portion of the city was doomed, but by the heroic efforts of the fire department and the citizens, a large amount of valuable property was saved from destruction. The lumber yard was destroyed entirely, the Duff Duff Furniture Co.

sustained a heavy loss and the Auditorium was also scorched to some extent.

The special carrying the Wichita fire fighters, made the run from Wichita to Newton in just thirty five minutes. The loss is estimated at about $36,000, all covered by insurance. It was a bad fire and will live in the history of Newton in years to come.
