most the Whole City is in

.Ruins of the Flames


rompt KR;icf is Sent by


The greatest lire in the history of
Florida, e not in tne whole South, oc-
currea in Jacksonville last Friday, by
wuich almost the entire city was com-
pletely destroyed. One hundred ann
thirty blocks comprising by far
the largest and best portion of the res-
iden..- and business sections of the
city, were completely wiped out, and
-day are a mass or ruins. The prop-
erty loss is estimated by the leading
business men to reach into the mill-
ions-a conservative estimate being
between twelve and fifteen millions.
The loss of life, which would have
been appalling had the fire occurred
at night instead o0 at mim-day, was
not very large, but it is now known
that some fifteen or twenty persons
have lost their lives from the fire or
by browning in the river, into which
they cast themselves to escape the de-
vrouring flames.
Beginning in the north-western
eetion of the city, in the Cleveland
Ibre facLory, corner of Beaver and
West Davis streets, the flames ate
their way- to the eastward, spreading
orth ana south to tne river front At
first confined to a few houses in the
B eigbborhood of Cleveland factory, a
strong, warm wind blowing from the
oth-west fanned the flames and they
n began to spread from house to
-house with a rapidity inconceivable to
any one but an eye-witness. Burning
bhingles flying through the air started
mew fires in all directions, and soon the
.doomed city was a mass of roaring,de-
eouring flames.
For ten long hours the brave firemen
ht without hope, but at 8 o'clock
ti., the wind calmed down and they
enabled to get it under control.
nce was sent by the fire com-
es from all the neighboring cities,
eluding Savannah and Tampa; the
thus secured saving the city from
The burned district, commencing at,
4et Davis street, goes east as far as
B ean' creek, and north as far as
Laroline street down to the St. John's
Of the old city only twelve blocks:
.escaped, forming a square in the-
south-west portion of the business sec-
tion, being bounded on the north by.
Adams street and on the east by Laura.
All of Bay street and the river front.
east of Laura was consumed.
A list of the public buildings con-
sumed comprises every bank but one
in the city, all the churches, the county
court house and jail, the Windsor, St.
James, Arlington, Glenwood aind
Nooney's Hotels, the opera house, the:
armory, the Elk club, the Jacksonville
Telephone Company, the city building,
all of the schools and a long list of:
others too numerous to mention.
At about 8 p. m. the wind died down
and afforded a blessed relief. The'
flames had lapped up everything in
their way from the Cleveland factory
to the Duval street viaduct and back
on Bay street to Laura, where the fire
. was gotten under control and did no
further material damage.
The next morning broke on a mass.
of smoldering ruins where a few brief
sours before had been a happy, pros-
perous city. Fifteen thousand people
were homeless and were only too glad
to have escaped _4e terrible conflagra-
tion with their dies, having lost all
but the mere clothes on their backs.
The catastrophe is beyond descrip-
tion. Such an utter destruction of a
city migut well cause the bravest
heart of her citizens to sink with dis-
appointment, but to-day, a week after
the fire, we find the citizens already
taking courage, and they have bravely
faced the future, and commenced the
task of rebuilding.
As usual in such cases of loss and
suffering, the American people re-
sponged at once, and from all parts
of the country assistance nas been
poured into the city. Up to to-day
over $50,000 have been sent to relieve
the distress and suffering, while cau-
loads of clothing and food have been
sent ififrom all sides.
The Secretary of ar at Washing-
ton sent army tents to shelter the
Snomeless people, and the ruined por-
tion is being fast converted into a
canvas city. .

From positive land undeniable infor-

news of the conflagration of last Friday
reached Tallahassee, Governor Jennings
has shown a devotedness and an untiring
energy in rendering all possible assist-
-ance to the-fre sufferers such as could
act be surpassed by any living man. In
ois efforts to keep perfectly posted as to
* "the actual condition and the needs of
toe t distressed people in the State's me-
a-o'polis, the-Governor has displayed and
exercisedd remarkable executive ability,
mast -admirable judgment and a single-
Snees of purpose which must forever en-
dear him to all the people of Florida.
'Tremendous as are their sufferings

The separate acts taken by Governor
'Jennings to relieve the unprecedented
and terrible suffering recently existing
in Jackionville are too numerous to be
here detailed, but wl ea tLe present
trouble passes over and opportunity for
review and reflection remedial efforts
is presented, the course of Governor

mail one day and wanted to borrow his
donkey to use an hour. Ismail made a
low salaam and said:
"Neighbor. I am sorry, but my boy
started on the donkey an hour ago to
Scutari. By now he is gayly trotting
over the bills far from the sacred pg-
cincts of Stamboul."
Just as Ismail finished his speech a
donkey's loud bray was beard in the
stable. which was under the same root
as Ismail's house. but in the rear. The
neighbor said:
"Ah. 1 bear your donkey bray."
Ismail protested that his neighbor
ears were deceived and that the nols*'
was not a donkey's bray. Then the
donkey. which was supposed to be Jog-
ging along toward Scutari. brayed
twice loudly. It was too much. and
the neighbor eried:
"Ob. that is your donkey. Ismail. Al-
lab help me. I can now borrow blm."
Then Ismail said:
"*Which do you believe is lying, e
donkey or me?"
The neighbor had to give Ismall the
benefit of the doubt and went away.

Why Spiders Are Not l 1sets.
The spider Is not an insect, thbeog
probably nine people out of ten would
class It under this term. With scor-
pions and mites spiders form a class ta
the animal kingdom known as Araeb-
nida. This name is derived from a
mythical personage called Arachne.
the daughter of a purple dyer of LydIa.
who was fabled to have challenged
Minerva to a trial of skill in spinning.
So Indignant was the goddess at this
act of boldness that she forthwith
transformed the hapless challenger
Into a spider, presumably In order that
she might have the best possible op-
portunity of practicing the art -an
which she prided herself so much.
Spiders -differ from Insects in five
main particulars. Their eyes are sim-
ple Instead of compound, they have
eight legs in place of six. they do not
pass through the metamorphoses
which are characteristic of Insects.
they have no antennae and their
breathing Is accomplished by means of
organs which combine the functions of
lungs and gills, instead of by tubes
pervading their bodies. These points
of distinction are sufficient to deter-
mine the fact that it Is impossible to
class spiders as insects.

Biliousness is a condition charac-
terized by a disturbance of the digest-
ive organs. The stomach is debili-
tated, the liver torpid, the bowels
constipated. There is a loathing of
food, pains in the ,bowels, dizziness,
coated tongue and vomiting, first of
the undigested or partly digested food
and then of bile. Chamberlain's
Stomach and Liver Tablets allay the
disturbances of the stomach and cre-
ate a healthy appetite. They also
tone up the liver to a healthy action
and regulate the bowels. Try them

pleased with the result. For sale by

symptom. Consumption and bron-

indication a persistent cough, and if
properly treated as soon as this cough

lain's Cough Remedy has proven
wonderfully succcessful, and gained
its wide reputation and extensive

eases which cause coughing. If it is

An Uneouth Mode of Burial.
Of all the modes of burial ever prac-
ticed by creatures in the shape of hu-
man beings the method of the Queens-
land nomads is certainly the most, un-
couth. After drying the corpse-in the
sun and knocking out its teeth for
keepsakes they deposit it on a frame-
work of rough poles and bury It under
a few armsful of rushes andold kan-
garoo skins, leaving the bush wolves
.to sing its requiem,
No member of the dead man's tribe

for fear of being haunted by the
spooks making the burial place their

afflicted with an abundance of super-
naturalism without betraying a trace
of anything deserving the name of re-
ligious sentiment.

Burr's Self ControL
Aaron Burr was by nature and train-
ing a man of extraordinary self con-
troL He allowed no circumstances to
throw him off his balance. An anec-
dote told by Rufus Choate to the late
Richard H. Dana, recorded in Mr.
Dana's "Diary," Illustrates the callous-
ness which aided Burr so greatly in
controlling himself. Several years after
the death of Hamilton, killed by Burr
in a duel, Burr visited Boston. and Mr.
Devereux of Salem paid him some at-
tentions. The visitor was taken to the
Boston atheneum, where, while the
two men were walking through the gal-
lery of sculpture, Mr. Devereux hap-
pened to catch sight of a bust of Ham-
The thought flashed across his mind
that 'Burr might not care to be con-
fronted with the sight of the features
of the man he had slain. But no. Burr
was undisturbed. He also espied the
bust, and, although Mr. Devereux bad
Instinctively turned away, he walked
up to It and said in a loud tone: "Ah!
Here is Hamilton!" Then, passing his
fingers along certain lines of the face,
he added, "There was the poetry!"

credit for possessing a poetic mind.

"Men on newspapers often have
peculiar experiences," said W. A. Fair-
child of Chicago, "and such a one be-
fell a friend of mine some time ago.
The friend in question was city editor
of a great daily, and in the course of
his manifold duties it fell to his lot to
$zke to task one of his reporters. The
reporter in question was an English-
man, slow of thought and action and
miserly.of speech. Through the tirade
to which he was subjected lhe said
nothing, and when it finally ended be
left the presence of his superior with-
out any comment.
"But, as the result proved. he did
some tall thinking. City editors when
'riled,' as is well known, are not par
ticularly choice or economical in the
language they bestow on their unfor-
tunate reporters, and among other
things the Englishman had been told
that he was no better than-in fact,
was-a crazy man and that his proper
habitat was a lunatic asylum and not
the hall bedroom of a Chicago board-
ing house which he occupied. %
"The- Englishman took this part of
the city editor's remarks as his text and
acted upon them. He promptly went
to an asylum, had himself thoroughly
examined by three or four alienists
and secured from them an official cer-
tificate to the fact that he was sane.
With this he appeared at the office of
his paper the next day, and, entering
the editor's sanctum, he slapped it
down before his astonished and dis,
mayed superior. 'Now, you go and get
one,' was his only comment and for
once that city editor capitulated."-

"He plugged the apertures, closed

the reply; "! have quite a number of
them in stock." "Send'them to me at

A thousand copies were soon after
ward delivered at his:,door. The bill
was a big one. but it yas paid, some-
what grudgingly. and Wagner thought
be had done with thi thing. What
was his surprise, then. at receiving two
or three mouths later on another con
signment, this time of 500 copies.
"1 thought you had q'ly a thousand

From the remotest ages the egg bas
been looked upon as the symbol of crx'
ation, or new birth. According te thli
Persians, the world was hatched from
an egg at that season of the year which
corresponds to the vernal equinox.
Hence the Parsees still exchange gifts
of colored eggs at the new year festi-
val, which they celebrate at this date.
Among the Jews the egg entered iutn,
all the mysterious ceremonies ealied
apocalyptic and occupied a prominent
position on the household table during
the paschal season. Christianity ln-
vested the paschal egg with a new sig-
nificance-namely, that of the resur-
rection of Christ, and it was colored
red in allusion to his blood shed for
sinners on the cross.
A curious custom in medieval church-
es, for priests and choristers to join In
a game of ball at Eastertide, took its
rise from the Easter egg, which was
thrown from one to the other of the
choristett in the nave of the church
while an anthem was being sung. As
a missed egg meant a smashed gr the
more durable handball w9'- js~.--.nt L
But the smashing of e cor .-Aued
as a form of outdoor sport .rvrivals
are to be found among all Teutonie
and Anglo-Saxon people. A popular
game In England and Germany con-
sists in hitting one egg against anoth-
er, the egg that survives neiracked
winning for its owner the weaker an-
tagonist, until an entire basket of eggs
may have changed ownership. Anoth-
er game Is to trundle eggs down a hill
or slope, those which reach the bottom
uncracked being similarly victorious
over the others.

Tale of a FPrual Bishop.
"There used to be to a city In which
I lived," said a Cleveland man, "a cer-
tain bishop who, while possessed of the
highest principles and,whose aims and
ambitions In life were of the highest
character, at the same time united with
these a penuriousness In money mat-
ters that caused Innumerable stories.
IuIlstrative of this falling to be teacked
upon him. One of these related to a
eertain church conference which the
bishop and other dignitaries of the
church at one time attended.
"At one of the meetings the bishop
In endeavoring to open a letter neatly
with his penklnife was so unfortunate
as to allow the latter to slip and to
cut a finger severely. The injured
member bled profusely, and a hasty
search for court plsater ensued. There

The Methods by Which They Are
Tested by Experts.
In a lecture on precious stones re-
cently delivered before the Industrial
association of Berlin, Dr. Immanuel
Frledlaender said that the testing of
diamonds is comparatively simple. The
common test for hardness suffices. If
the stone resists strong attacks, it Is
certain to be genuine; if it does not,
the damage is insignificant, as only an
imitation has been destroyed. This
test, however, is doubtful with rubies.
If a ruby can be affected by a steeJ
file or by quartz, it is surely not gen-
uine, but such a test with a topaz Ia
liable to injure a valuable stone.
The test for hardness is of no avall
with emeralds, as this stone 14 not
much harder than quartz and in addi-
tion possesses the quality of cracking
For examining rubles and emeralds
the optical test is best. A glass mag-
nifying about 100 times suffices. Ev-
try expert knows that almost all pre-
dous stones have little flaws. Nearly
every ruby and all emeralds have
many defects, which are so character-
ktic that the genuineness of tihe stones
is readily established. Such a test is
very necessary with rubies, because
the imitations are very deceiving.
Their color is absolutely durable and
Soften much ,finer than that of the gen-
- line, although it may be stated that a
somewhat yellowish tint is always sus-
picious. ;.
The only reliable way in which gen-
dsoe rubies can be told from imitations


Is by the minute air bubbles of the lat-
ter, which become clearly visible un-
der the magnifying glass. These are
not to be found in the natural gem.
On the other hand, the Imitations laek
certain defects characteristic of gen-
uine rubles-certain vacuums, whose
outlines are much more indistinct than
those of the air bubbles in imitations.
True emeralds have similar charac-
teristic defects, such as Inclosures of
liquids and curious dendrites. Sap-
phires also show peculiar netlike for-

The Part They Played In the War
Between the States.
It is odd to think, that the southern
mountaineer was not discovered until
the outbreak of the civil war, although
he was nearly a century old then, and
it is really startling to realize that
when one speaks of the southern moun-
taineers he speaks of nearly 3,000,000
people who live in eight southern
states-Virginia and Alabama and the
southern states. between-and occupy
a region equal in area to the combined
areas of Ohio and Pennsylvania, as
big. say, as the German empire, and
richer, perhaps, in timber and mineral
deposits than any other region of sim-
ilar extent in the world. This region
was and is an unknown land. It has
been aptly called Appalachian Ameri-
ca. and the work of discovery is yet
going on.
The American mountaineer was dis-
covered, 1 say, at the beginning of the
war, when the Confederate leaders

"Take care of the pennies and the
pounds will take care of themselves."
Large things are but an aggrega-
tion of small things. If we take care of
of the small things we are in effect
taking care of the larger things which
the smaller combine to make.
Take care of what you eat, when
you eat, and how you eat, and your
stomach will take care of itself. But
who takes care if such trivial things?
That is why, some day, the majority
of people have to take care of the

stomach. When that day comes, there
is no aid so effective in undoing the
result of past. carelessness ar Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It
strengthens the stomach, and restores
the organs of digestion and nutrition
to a condition of healthy activity. It
cures biliousness, "heartburn, flatu-
lence, indigestion, dizziness, cold ex-
