A Midway Row Burned


The famous Midway row at Fort Thomas, Ky., was burned at 2:30 o'clock this morning. The row comprises six or eight buildings just outside the limits of the government property, occupied as saloons, restaurants and concert halls, and patronized by the soldiers and the thousands of visitors who go to the fort for the ride and its fine views. The fire brigade of the fort turned out by nothing could save the combustible buildings. Loss, $20,000, with little insurance.
