FIRE AT SEAFORD. By Our Special Reporter. On Sunday afternoon, 1st inst., a fire occurred on the Foreshore Reserve op. posite the Hall, and fanned by a very strong wind, which fortunately blew sea. wards, furiously burnt out about half at acre of ti-tree. Willing workers, includ. ing Crs. l'Towell and Armstrong, were quickly on the scene, and after a strenu oios fight, the fire was prevented from spreading. It is quite providential tiat the wind remained steady in the south. east, otherwise greater damage may harve resulted. This fire should cause greater notice to be taken of the warnings, which each. summer "The Standard" has givet, and tihe Progress Association should receive greater assistance fron local residents in its long battle for adequate fire protection, for thie matter is no joke, and, acecording to tlhe ex perience of the S.P.A., the 3Minister of Lands takes a lot-of waking tup to the Government's responsibility in the mat ter. \Where are the 1750 fire plugs u1tlich we...
