Dudden, which is situated at the rear of, and come distance from, his store, was totally destroyed by fire. The alarm was raised by some men who were at the hotel, and although a good many persons quickly assembled nothing beyond a few boxes and one or two articles of furniture were saved. Mrs. Dudden was temporarily at the shop, and just arrived in time to save a child which ;as sleeping on the premises. It is not known how the fire originated, but it is supposed to have occurred through either some embers falling on to the floor or the window blinds igniting from a candla on the table. The build ing was not insured, and as it contained many articles of great value the loss to Mr and Mrs. Dudden is a very severe one, and mLch sympathy is expressed for them.
