A SLIGHT BLAZE ON WASHINGTON STREET: The alarm of fire was sounded on Tuesday, about 11 o'clock a.m., which proved to be in a small barn of James Mullaney's on Washington street. The Hook and Ladder Company started almost instantly from the engine building, the firemen coming on the run from down town and catching hold of the rope. About the same time Mr. N.S. Hubble came from his house, near the fire, on a horse, on a dead run, and took the forward end of the rope, and with a turn around the horn of his saddle, helped the boys amazingly and kept them on a dead run until they reached the fire, five blocks away. The engine was started almost as soon, probably not more than a minute behind, and hauled to the cistern on Idaho street and the hose laid as far as it would reach, 1,000 feet, to the block where the fire was, but could not reach the fire by about 200 feet, although the hose partially commanded Captain Griffin's residence on the same block, on which they threw some water. Mullaney's barn was very frail and burned down by the time the Hook and Ladder Company reached there; but Captain Griffin's barn, a good substantial small building, stood almost adjoining Mullaney's and took fire and burned down. The Captain had a good buggy in his barn which he saved. No other building stood near enough to be in danger. Mr Mullaney was at work on the Walling ditch, but soon got to the fire. He told us he had no idea how the fire originated. Some say that his children were in the barn playing they were getting dinner and started a fire with matches they could not put out. They went to house and told their mother and she went with a pail of water, but the fire had spread and was beyond control. The lost to Mr. Mullaney is not over one hundred dollars, while Captain Griffin's loss is probably two hundred and fifty or three hundred dollars. (Idaho Statesman, April 7, 1881)

Nampa Leader: Last Saturday evening Ben Walling, Jr. was shot through the foot by a pistol in the hands of Roscoe Jesse and quite a severe wound was inflicted. It seems that young Walling was at the creek cleaning a pistol belonging to D.A. Baxter and had in his possession another pistol. Taking to pieces and cleaning out the one he laid the different parts on the bank and turned his attention to the other. Young Jesse came along, picked up the pistol from the bank, and placed it together, loading it with a single cartridge lying on the bank. In some manner, the pistol was discharged, the ball passing through Walling's foot. Pistols in the hands of boys are dangerous things. (Idaho Statesman, December 18, 1899)

There was a pleasant little dinner party Friday last at the Walling homestead, above the city. The occasion was the eighty-fifth birthday of J.B. Walling, one of the oldest of the old-timers. Grandfather Walling, as he is affectionately known, was born in New York state Aug. 24, 1809. Driving an ox team across the plains, he settled in the Willamette valley, Oregon, bringing with him the first sheep ever in that valley. Then he engaged in farming and fruit raising for 17 years. In 1864 he came to Boise valley, took up the Walling homestead, about two miles above town, went back for his family and the next year settled on that ranch which is still his home. There he has lived ever since, and by hard, faithful work, together with a life of thorough honesty and uprightness, has accumulated quite enough to support him in his old age. It was he who brought the first irrigating ditch into Boise, and that ditch, though now in other hands, is still known as the Walling ditch. Grandfather Walling is well known throughout this section of Idaho, and his many friends join in wishing that he may live to enjoy many years more. (Idaho Statesman, August 26, 1894)

Port Jervis -- Two families were routed yesterday when fire destroyed the old Whitaker homestead at Rio. The fire believed to have been started from an overheated chimney broke out at 10:30 a.m. and within a few minutes the wooden structure was engulfed in flames. The two-family dwelling was occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Chester Whitaker and their son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Whitaker. The fire was discovered by the son while at work in the barn. He saw smoke coming out of the kitchen of his own apartment but before he could reach the house the left side of the structure was ablaze. His wife was with his mother at the time. A call was sent to the Sparrowbush fire department three miles away but when the truck arrived it was vitually impossible to save the building. The firemen, however, did manage, with the assistance of neighbors, to save the barns and several other houses nearby which were endangered. Within an hour the homestead lay in ruins. The furniture and clothing of two families were destroyed. It was also reported that more than one hundred dollars in bills, which Kenneth Whitake had put away upstairs was lost. Whitaker made an attempt to save the money when he first noticed the fire but was driven back. (Middletown Times-Herald, February 13, 1933)
