FIRE AT A DRAPERY AND MILLINERY ESTAB- LISHMENT.—On Monday afternoon last about five o'clock Mr and Mrs Selby and family, Cross House, were at tea in their dining room, which is on the fimt floor, when one of the assistant* ran in shout- ing "Fire, Fre I" An endeavour was made to come down by the stairs, but escape that way was made impossible owing to the exceedingly thick clouds of smoke coming up, they therefore made their way to the front room, and a ladder being obtained, made their escape through one of the windows. Meanwhile the alarm of fire had bee raised, and the tire bell rung which soon brought the Fire Brigade ont with their reel and hose. An attempt was made to fix the standpipe on to the hydrant right in front of the premises, hut it was found that the recent manouvres of the steam roller had pressed the cap down, so that it was impossible to open the same. It was therefore fixed some distance off in front of Mr Ceredig Evans' shop, and by the time it was in working order the other had been opened. After some considerable delay the hose was brought to play upon the fire, which was found to have broken out in the Millinery Show Room, immediately under the living room, and in about half an hour it had been subdued, not however, before very great damage had been done by the fire, smoke and water to a very considerable part of the stock. Much sympathy is felt for Mr and Mrs Selby, the latter of whom we understand is quite prostrated with the stock.
