Crocker, Bliss & Co. Fire

Last Friday evening the heavens were illuminated south of here
by what appeared to be an extensive conflagration, which
proved to be the case, for on that evening the chair
factory of Crocker, Bliss, & Co., Sheboygan, together with
three dwelling houses were totally destroyed by fire. The
fire originated in the dry house we believe. Loss about
$50,000.
