Fire at Brown.

A janitor discovered a lively blaze in the basement of Hope College in a large waste-paper bin. A general alarm was sent out; but before aid arrived the fire had reached the roof. Eight rooms were burned out, the roof was burned, and all the other rooms in the building were soaked. The loss is about $5000 to the corporation and $1500 to the students.
