On Friday morning last [Nov. 24]
the station at Branchville Junction was entirely consumed by fire.
When discovered at an early hour the fire had made such progress that
all efforts to save it were useless. The origin is unknown. Officials
of the D. L. & W. visited the place on Saturday, and it is said
a new building will be erected as soon as possible. The loss of the
building and its contents is unfortunate, not only to the company,
but to the public who are obliged to wait at this important centre
for other trains.
