The fire was first noticed by Dean Milk Company employees who attempt¬ ed to extinguish the fires near their plant. The Huntley fire departmient and other citizens extinguished the fires in two hours. The strong wind fanned the blaze making it more difficult to extinguish. In many places the firemen were unable to connect to water and had to fight some of the blazes with fire brooms.

Nenv JLanndromiat Coming Soon Work began last week remodel¬ ing the o:d drug store at the cor¬ ner of Woodstock and Main. Some¬ time in April Mr. Marvin DePew of Batavia, IU., will open a coin operated laundromat. The laundro¬ mat will stay open 24 hours a day, affording people who can not make it down in theday time time to do their washing and drying durfng the evening rx any time tbay widi. At first the laundromat will have ten washers and thrae dryers, but if the need bicreasea, Mr. DePew ! hopes to increase the size of the operations. In the past the building has been used for many things. It was stand¬ ing at the beginning of the cetitury as a picture was taken of the town at that time and this building can be plainly seen. The building has ben used, as far as we know, for a restaurant and drug store before. There has been much talk as whe¬ ther or not Huntley needs a laun- dromaL However, Hampshire has one and supports it very nicely.
