Fire at Williams: Wednesday night about 8 o'clock a fire broke out at Williams and before it could be stopped six buildings were burned right in the center of the business portion as follows: McCue's barber shop, Gade's law office, the post office, Sawyer's hardware store, Skivington's dry goods store and Fiddler's drug store. The citizens had a hard fight to save the rest of the town from destruction, as a regular gale was blowing and the weather was intensely cold.
