Last Friday, G.W. CRIPPEN, of near Vineland, lost his house and its contents
by fire. The family consists of Mr. C. and two daughters. The old gentleman
was at work in his field and the young ladies were rendering lard on the
stove, when it caught fire and the whole building was filled with flames almost in
a moment. They only succeeded in saving a small lot of clothing, one bed,
three quilts and the organ, which happened to stand near the door, everything
else was devoured by the flames. The house was a two-story frame and had been
insured, but the policy had expired just a few days before. Mr. C. had just
finished paying for the place, after years of toil, and the misfortune falls
heavily upon him. Mr. John D. HEARST, on learning the particulars, started out for
contributions for the unfortunate family, and was succeeding very well when we
saw him, Saturday.
