Fire at Methven.

At an early hour this morning a fire broke out m the general store of Mr H. Stone at Methven, A strong north-wesfc wind was blowing at the time, and all efforts'to save the buildings from destruction were unavailing. In a very few minutes from the breaking out of the conflagration the building and its contents were reduced to a heap of ruins. Fortunately for Mr Stone a fire-proof safe and its contents, containing money, watches, books of the business, etc., withstood the intense heat, and remained practically uninjured. The building was in.sured for £75, and the stock for £275, m the London, Liverpool, and Globe Office, but Mr Sbone estimates his loss at £300 over and above the insurance. The oriein of the fire is unknown.
