GONE IN FIRE.
Destruction of Chicago's Beau
tif ul White City.
CHICAGO, III., Jan. 9.-Last
night's fire in the World's Fair
grounds produced greater changes
in the appearance *of Chicago's
famous pleasure park thou six
months moviugof the buildings.
The casino where thousands spent
delightful hours watching the gay
scenes upon and about the grand
basin was wholly destroyed. Of
the peristyle once illumined wiih
thousands of incandescent lights,
and Greek fire and furnishing end
less enjoyment, nothing remains.
Its arches were burned away and
its stately columns, half burned
and charred, lie in a confused
wreck upon the brick promenade
which surrounds it. The colossal
figures which surmounted it top
pled to the ground when the sup
ports burned away and are broken
in pieces. Columbus and his her
alds with their war horses and
chf.rists are unrecognizable among
the mass of ruins. Music hall is
?Kewise a melancholy heap of
ashes save here and there where an
iron girder protrudes through a
portion of it. Nothiog was saved
from the flames. All about the
walks are strewn with debris,
charred brands which the wind
blew from the burning buildings
and little piles of white ashes
where some of the brands were
consumed after falliug. The man
ufacturers' building, both within
and without, presents a sight not
desired either by the artist or ex
hibitors. The lattice .work be
tween the top roof and the curved
one covering the central aisle OL
the east side was burned away
from a point above the southern
end of the United States section
south to the one above the Russia
section. Upon the tin and glass
arched roof lie half burned boards
which formed pa?t of the lattice,
and which, when loosened by the
firo..^slid downward. '. Iaside_ the_
building the appearance was worse
than upon the roof. Within the
region burned over, and for some
distance on either side, the floor is
covered with water. Standing in
the water, which at some places is
two inches in depth, are innumer
able boxes containing precious
wares, baled and bound for re
shipment as soon as they could be
released from bond. Upon and
about them lie the non-destroyed
decorations of the pavilion. The
French, Belgian, and English sec
tions suffered most, and in the
space occupied by them is to be
seen the most disastrous results.
The scene iuside of the great
manufacturer's 'milding was of
absorbing interest. Here and there
were seen boxes with their tops
half burned th.'ough but their
contents safe except for the water
that leaked into them. A few
timbers in the roof were still burn
ing and smoking.
A rough estimate places the loss
on buildings at about $800,000. No
estimate of the Joss on exhibits
can be given until the cases con
taining the goods are examined.
One of the most significant signs
of the times as showing the drift
on the part of the federal judiciary
in gr ispjug at power and as show
ing the necessity for some federal
legislation restraining the arrogant
assumptions of these federal
judges, is shown in a recent extra
ordinary injunction issued by
Judge Jenkins, of the United
St?tes Court, in aid of. the re
ceivers of the Northern Pacific
road to prevent a strike. The re
ceivers adopted a new schedule of
wages to go into effect Jan. 1st re
ducing wages from 5 to 10 per cent.
All the employees, 3,000 in num
ber, refused to accept the reduced
wages and proposed to go on a
strike on the 1st inst., aud this
federal judge issued an order be
forehand enjoining tl tem from st rik.
%ngi or, as the order itself expresses
is, from ucombining and conspiring
to quit the service of the road,11
This is the most extraordinary
order ever yet issued by any judge,
federal or State, in this country.
A federal judge in Michigan did
is-ue an injune? on in the case of
the strike on the Toledo and Ann.
Arbor road last winter after it was
in progress, but no judge has ever
before issued an injunction to
prevent a strike. It is the boldest
and most daring stretch of power
that has yet startled the country.
It is a blow at organized labor in
all its forms. It practically says
to these men that they cannot quit
the service of the railroad at th
pleasure. It makes them the sla\
of the road, as much the chat
property of the road, as the negrc
ever were in the South. If a fe
eral judge can by injunction p:
vent an organized body of labore
from quitting the service of th<
employers, how long will it be I
fore that same judge will by an i
junction attempt to prevent the
from organizing at all, and if '.
eau do that, what is to prevent hi
from issuing au injunction to pi
vent agriculturalists and oth
kindred vocations from organi
ing? These federal courts ai
federal judges are becoming mo
and more the unscrupulous toe
of monopolies and the mom
power and are verifying the pr
diction of Mr. Jefferson that tl
greatest danger to our institutioi
lay in these federal courts. The

known as Dash. The horse sine

This section of our immortal Stab

T?l?^s?TittT?r ; ontne" ?otly "con
tested field of carnage ; in times
of peace and harmony ; during ar
election for President. It's a sort
of dark and bloody ground, so tc
speak. I overheard a fellow
arguing earnstly, and actuall}' af
he concluded he cussed. Passing
a store I heard one man say ol
another with a large amount ol
emphasis that he was a liar, and
another mau called without any
modification whatever plainly,
definitely-a fool. In extenuation
of the above I might add: it oc
curred at night when evils are
most free, while the hearer was
walking and ruminating along a
deserted sidewalk. One can hardly
at times suppress evil thoughts.
The idea did indeed occur to me,
(a mere passing chimera ?.which I
stifled) not two hours ago to obtain
a pair of dumb bells, exercise
strenuously every day to develop
and harden muscles for waging a
warfare, defensive, at least.
I am told that it is a very high
ridge where we dwell: Stephens
Creek on one side and the
Savannah River on the other. The
country round about abounds in
creeks, mill-dams and Baptists.
A former pastor spoke freely to
me of the high character and over
flowing conduct of the latter. Of
course one may look forward for
sweet communing saints this year
that is, a high, spiritual sort, ex
cluding all elements and emblems.
We have an excellent high
school and a real live Congress
man both located in the village
aforesaid. Sinners are numerous.
I heard a preacher of the town
preaching, and said he : "Brother,
we are all sinners." To prevent
invasion we have a true and tried
militaiy company, who walk about
on muster days, the pride of the
village, with long guns on their
shoulders looking brave and draw
ing out occasional ly rough words in
a soldier-like way. La6t and loud
est Ave have a musical association
known farand wide as the "Parks
ville Brass Band."
It's night-the little boys are
fast asleep. The d^y's journey
mid din and dust has been a'severa
tax on young nerve force, and the
young travelers, wearied with the
transfer, have sunk in sweetest
sleep. Marvin, the eldest, wondered
when we shall return home. He
thinks the old parsonage and plot
of land on the hill near Reedy
River in the Piedmont belt is
Papa's own. He remembers the
red smooth road where he rolled
hie hoop ; tho favorite t:ee near the
well and the little play house be
Mud the barn where with his
associates he has often gamboled.
So be said: "Let us go back home."
The love of home early springs,
is deeply implanted in the human
breast. Who can or who would
efface the earliest impressons of
the quiet home life when the
mother lived? I remember as my
happiest the years spent in the
old home when a child : upon an
elevated place near the river side
stood the brick mansion. Tall,
graceful elms and sturdy water
oaks stood like protecting sentinels
around the old domain. In front
was a deeply shaded woodland
where the squirrel, the robin, the
partridge enjoyed unlimited free
dom, for they were protected by
the landlord's-decree. Northward
looking up the beautiful Broad,
wide, extended meadow lands lay.
In the full blossom and bloom of
spring sluggish cattle would
quietly graze up?li the soft and
sweet herbage of green and ever
and anon drink of tho cool,
babbling brook hard by, and
stretch their lengths at noontide
beneath shading willows by the
river's brink. And there were
hog-killing times and Christmas
times, house-raising and log-rol
ling times-hallowed associations
and scenes in and around the old
home; memory brings them all
before mr to-night.
There came a bright morning a
few years ago, in early Spring. It
seems to me but as yesterday, so
still, so calm wa3 that bright
Sabbath morning. A gentle breeze
stirred among the young leaflets,
the honeysuckle lent its seducing
sweetness to the fragrauce 'round,
while the mocking bird perched
on a favorite limb warbled
seemingly in plaintive accents its
morning lay. My mother grew
restless. The Doctor had told me
in a whisper that she could not
live long. The old clock that had
done faithful service many years,
ticking the seconds and striking
tho hours as they came, suddenl}'
wti'^o...' 'ii. .vr. ts?-* ii
thing before-a mere superstition.
But the old clock on the stairs was
sullen and silent; not ticking nor
striking any more. "My son, I'm
dying," and in a dreary way she
looked far out upon the beautiful
landscape beyond. "You know
what I want you to be,'' said 6he.
She breathed heavily a moment.
There was short struggle of nature
for life, and my mother died.
My lines have fallen in pleasant
places since. I've been cheered
and comforted before blazing
hearth of kindred and friends, but
all has never equaled the happiness
of the hearth of my mother's home.

P.S. Later; Recently arrived.
Dash broke out of his stable this
morning. Getting on his knees
he crawled out of a hole in his
barn not four feet high. He had
gono five or six miles towards
Reedy River when he was caught
and held fast by two iron-will
Edgefield stewards. The aforemen
tioned musical baud was the cause
of his leaving in Euch disorder.
They serenaded us last night just
before dawn. The poor animal
has every evidence of nervous
prostration since his return.

ADULTERATION OP COFFEE.
And Nice Things are Not Put
With It or in It, Either.
"Coffee," says Dr. Winslow An
derson, of San Francisco, "now
one of the most universally used
of all beverages, excepting, per
haps, tea and beer, is usually ab
nominably adulterated. It would
seem difficult to imitate coffee, but
it is not. A very fair cup of coffee
is made from black walnut dust,
caramel, and roasted and browned
horse liver. This mixture has been
ascertained by chemical analysis
to be in extensive use. Grjund
coffee and hotel drcoctions often
contain roasted and ground peas,
beans, potatoes, carrots, corn, rye,
and oak bark, while chicory is sel
dom absent.. This chicory, by the
way, is itself adulterated with
roasted wheat, rye, beans, acorns,
carrots, parsnips, beet root, baked
livers, venetian red, colored earths,
oak bark, tan, and sawdust. Coffee
grounds from large hotels have
been known to be gathered up,
carefully dried and remixed with
adulterates and chicory, and sold
again as pure coffee. So much for

Vast and populous as China is, :
the experience of the present cen
tury shows that she is weak for i
aggressive purposes. She has not
the hold on teiritory adjacent to 1
her borders which she could claim
a hundred years ago. European 1
nations are pressing on her, both 1
on the south and on the north.
She has been forced to cede a por
tion of her territory to England,
and she has been compelled to
avail herself of the help of Eng
lishmen, both for civil administra
tion and for military command.
All these things show that an ex
pansion of the Chinese race docs
not necessarily involve an exten
sion of Chinese dominion. On the
contrary, they tend to prove that
it is the order introduced by Eu
ropean administration which leads
to the multiplication of these in
dustrious people; and there is,,
therefore, at least as much ground
for saying that, though Borneo,
Sumatra-, and New Guinea, and the
great islands of the Eastern Archi
pelago, may be ultimately peopled
by yellow races, they will be gov

THIRTY YEARS AFTER.
The freedman's Condition To
JDay and the Slave's.
The Sewanee (Tenn.) Review.
Th?|laves are free-if that can
be called freedom which they now
enjoy.! Are they happier? Well,
it it, hard" to define what happiness
is. F|w of them would go back
into tlj?ir old state, and all would
now b^very unhappy if they could
be remanded to it; butas a rule,
those negroes who are old enough
to h avg1 experience worth remem
beringpdo not hesitate to declare
that tfie state of bondage was far
happiojr. The air and manner of
most *?? them are sadly changed
for ih&worse. The free and open
cheerfijllness, ready to burst out
in pefjls of laughter, the prompt
and respectful bow, the song and
dance,"!the jollity at Christmas,
and tye expression of love and
loyalty to the white people, are in
a largifdegren gone.
Surfiness and reserve have taken
their, place. Crimes have become
tenfold-more numerous and some,
and inever heard of in old
times^have become common. No;
if happiness were the end and ob
ject ?t life, the negroes in the
South?could not be said to have
gainedt by the change. But bless
edness, not happiness, is the true
end; ?nd the new condition has
thrust^enormously more responsi
bility jjipoii them, . and it maybe
that, rn consequence, they may in
time rise to higher things than
they DOW oblain ; but ic may well
be questioned if the new state will
ever n?'atch the Christian fidelity
of Uncele Tom, the faithful tender
ness of Aunt Chloe, and the pa
tiencefand love of Eva's mammy.

'.The strangest test of will power
and endurance everse3n," said E. D*
Gonsaul8 of the City of Mexico, at
tho Southern." "was in Mexico, the
characters being a Mex!? (n girl and
an American mau. They were
lovers and the girl's parents re
fused their consent to the uuion,
insisting that she shoald marry a
wealthy Mexican suitor. At the
suggestion of the girl they agreed
to die together and to test the
strength and endurance of each
other's love they chose a means of
suicide unlike any ever dreamed :
of before. Food and fruit were
placed on a table in the centre of
a . room, occupied by both, the
girl having escaped from her home
but being unwilling to elope with
her lover. It was agreed that they
should starve to death with plenty
before them, and should
either succumb to nature and par
take of the food, then both were
released fram the bond of death,
but there should be an everlasting
separation. For twelve days they
endured ths pangs of hunger
without a murmur or a thought of
wayering from their purpose to
die together. The twelfth day the
father of the girl discovered her
whereabouts, and breaking the
door, they were carried, out, too
faint to stand alone. It took them
several days to recover their
strength, and when they did they
were married. This is a true state
ment, and the American is living
with his Mexican, wife to-day."
A Seat in the House of Commons.
Justin McCarthy in North American Review.
The House of Commons has
some 670 members, and it has
seats for little more than half the
numbers. Even if we take into
account the members' galleries,
which run along two sides of the
chamber,*tliere still is not nearl)
room enough for all the men who
are eniitled to take their places in
the House of Commons. "What
are the members to do who have
not got seats? They arc- to dc the
best they can-to do anything
they like short of taking seats^in
They may crowd the bar-I do
not mean any place of refreshment
although they may may crowd that
bar, too, if they please-I mean
they stand below the line which is
supposed to represent the brass
bar that can, when occasion re
quires, be drawn out from either
side, and so conjoined as to re
present the divison between some
petitioner or some alleged offender
They may-stanaiu the newspaper
room or the tea room ; they may
fall asleep in the libray they may
walk on the terrace ; they may
lounge in the smoking room; but
cannot sit in the House.
As in England there are so many
superfluous women who could not
possibly find husbands hereunder
our present matrimonial system,
in the House of Commons there
are so many members who cannot
possibly find seats. The struggle
for seats from day to day is a
curious and interesting competition
of which, so far as I know, the
English House of Commons has
an absolute monopoly.
It is in ona sense a question of
first come first served. The House
of Commons usually meets at 3
o'clock in the afternoon. A mem
ber may come down to the House
as early as he pleases and select
a seat. If he comes very carly
say at 8 in the morning-he has,
on ordinary occasions, a fair
chance of a good place. He selects
his place and he puti his hat into
it. Then he goes away, to return
at 3 o'clock, when prayers are
said by the Chaplain of the House
-at present and for* some time
past my distinguished friend
In the meautime our member in
quest of a seat must not stir one
inch outside the buildings which
belong to the House of Commons.
His claim to a seat is supposed
to rest on his attention to the
service of the House, and if he
crosses a threshold for one moment
outside the precincts of the House
hi* claim to a seat is forfeit. So
he spends from S o'clock until 3
lounging about the library and
smoking rooms and the newspaper
room, and at 3 he comes back into
the House and listens to the
prayers. Then having complied
with all that cermonial and
having spent his whole day in
nominal service of the House,
he is entitled to insert in a little
brass frame at the back of his seat
a small card bearing thr. printed
word "prayers" his own name writ
ten t eneath,and thus he has secured
that seat for the one sitting only.
The struggle has to begin afresh on
the very same conditions on

Peanuts as an Article of Food.
Dr. P. Furbringer treats of the
peanut as an article of food rich
in a', bumen, of which it contains !
forty-seven per cent., together with
nineteen per cent, of fat and non
nitrogenous extractive matters. He
recommends the use of roasted
peanuts in the form of soup or
mush. On account of their cheap
ness, peanuts are recommended as
a popular article of food, espe
cially in poor houses and the like;
moreover they are recommended as
an article of food for the corpu
lent, for diabetics, and for the sub
jects of kidney disease. In the last
mentioned of whom, foods-rich in
animal albumen are to be avoided.
