THE FISHERMAN'S DAUGHTER.
Twas only a fisherman's cottage.
With a drirtwood fire, burnt low.
And the kettle beside It singing
To the cups laid an hour ago;
And a lanlp by the seaward window,
Keadealng the sands below.
Tis only the fisherman's children
Motherless Maggie and Jim,
Alice, the beauty, and Robin,
Asleep In the firelight dim.
And xtnle, the matronly darling.
Wide-eyed, watching ror him.
uh, fisherman, beating shoreward.
Through darkness and blinding rain,
Do you see the lamp's red glimmer.
Like a star on the misty train!
And the wet white eyelids, pressing
Close to the wet, black pane?
Oh, fisherman, bcatingshoreward.
O'er surging or wind and wave.
Do yon bear a brave little slnger,
Singing a cheerful stave?
And a tremulous prayer uplifted
To One who. can succor and save?"
By the fisherman's fire at midnight,
When chapter and prayer were read.
He kissed the Hushed little sleepers
And bore them alolt to bed:
But he prayed, tiod bless thee, true heart!"

THE COUNTY FAIR.
Amanda Wbeaton and Xell EustU
were neighbors in the town of Brierly
Centre, both daughters of well-to-do
farmers. Tliey had both been at South
Hadley together for a fishing touch af
ter the district school had done Its best
for them, and If ell had learned, among
other things, to play a few tunes on the.
piano by means of a mutual aptitude
for the fine arts; and since returning
home she had found time to look after
her father's house and dairy, and by
teaching the district school summers
they never allowed that privilege to a
woman during the winter term she
had laid up enough money to buy a
second-hand piano in the city. When
Nell showed Amanda the money, and
confided her intentions to her, Amanda
had a new sensation. Hitherto site had
always been ahead of Nell, so to speak
Her black alpacas had been finer than
Nell's and had borne off the palm in
the matter of trimmings, her shawls
had always been more numerous and
more gorgeous, her bonnets more showy,
her ribbons more frequent; for a coun
girl, in short, she had invariably
the styles in Brierly Centre, and
had done them credit with her
spaskling eyes and rosy cheeks. But
now if Nell was to have a piano, If she
was to learn te play on it, Amanda's
existence would be embittered beyond
peradventure. There was but one
piano in all Brierly Centre, and that
was up at old Squire Brierly's, and no
body to open it from year's end to
"Oh, dear sakes! Nell," said Amanda,
"what makes you think of wasting
your money 011 such foolishness as.a
piano, when you don't know how to
it, either, and it'll take up such a
sight of room ?"
"Oh, it'll just fit into the niche by the
chimney," said Nell, happy as a cricket
the hearth; "arid I mean to learn to
It sec if I don't."
"I don't see who'll teach you; and it
costs a power of money."
I've thought maybe Deacon Small
might give mc some hints; he plays the
bass viol 111 the choir, you know. And
then folks learn by themselves. I've
read about it there's Mozart and"
"Lor sakes !" laughed Amanda. -"I
1'pose you're a Mozart, or seme of those
fellows who knew music by nature.
You ain't vain nor anything, arc yon,
"Maybe I am," answered Nell, pleas
antly- "One can't get on with a trifle
vanity; it's sort of wholesome stuff)
alter all that has been said about It,
though it's like homoeopathic medicine
a ltttle goes a good ways. But any
way I could play "Fisher's Hornpipe, "-
Chorus Jig" and "Old Hundred," at
South Hadley. And I thought it would
of liven father up after the day's
chores were done, to hear a little music,
fit wasn't so fine, before the caudles
lit, between daylight and dark. It's
sociable like, a little music is; and than
would be all handy for a dance any
"What's that about winter evenings?')
asked Tom Brierly, the squire's sonrind
hero of the place, lounging in at
open door with that familiar air
which made him welcome everywhere.
A dance ? I'll engage youfor the first
cotillon, Nellie, shall I ?"
Oh, dear, no," giggled Amanda. She
going to be tbe band lierself."
Mandy's laughing at me," explain
Nell, "because I'm going tu buy a
piano with my earnings."
"Let those laugh who win," cried
Tom, lightly. ''We'll play duetts to
"Well, I'm no company for such fa
mous musicians," said Amanda. "I
gues3 I'll be going home."
"I'm going your way," said Tom',
"Oh, so soon?" pleaded Nellie.
"I didn't think of stopping I heard
music of your voices as I came by."
"it Uou't compare with the music
Nell will makeou her piano."
Well, goodby, Nell. Let me know
when you're ready to begin that duet.
what shall It be "The
rose that all are praising?" and then
went off laughing with Amanda,
left Nell looking after them with
hungry eyes, and a heart heavy with'
unspoken wishes. What happiness
would there he in the possession of a
piano, or the world, if Tom preferred
Amanda? And yet, who was slit to
dream of taking the fancy of a young
fellow like Tom Brierly she with her
pale face and serious eyes and plain
ways? The women of his family had
been used to rustle in stiff silks, and
shine in sheen of lace witli sunshine
and powder tangled In their curls, and
rouge and smiles on their dimpled
checks; at least that was the story that
portraits told, hanging and growing
dusty in tlio great hail year after year.
was hardly likely that the heir of
such traditions would think of her; and
it was her day dream, her aspira
tion, that some day he' might a pre
sumptuous dream ; hut ho was always
kind, and might not kindness crys
talize Into love any day? Amanda
with vivid colors and pretty confidence
and dashing ways, might beguile the
heart of a seraph, she landed; and, al
ter all, Tom was only a young man,
with a man's relish for warmth and
Vitality and beauty. And whir If it
should come to pass, :u,u s,.u ,ould
have to live her life nest door to Tom
and his wife, and watch their shadows
upon the curtains, and see their chil
dren go in and out! After all, perhaps
she needed the piano, in order that she
might confide the secret that sometimes
seemed too big for her heart to hold.
"Nell is too odd!" said Amanda, as
she and Tom loitered home. "What do
you suppose she wants of a piano a
girl who spends half of her time in the
dairy and kitchen?"
"A piano isn't a bad investment," au-
swered Tom ; "and Deacon Small says
Nell's got a talent that oughtn't to be
hid in a napkin" laughingly.
"Oh, that's it! he's been turning her
head with his flatteries. I wonder why
he doesn't marry her, and be done with
"Marry Nelly ! Deacon Small !" cried
Tom, with a start and a laugh. "Did
he ever dare propose such a thing ?"
They- say he has had it under con
sideration. Folks think she couldn'l
"Couldn't she ?" said Tom, uneasily.
"He's got means, you know," said
Amanda, seriously, "and Nell'sgot am
"And he's old enough to be her grand
"Some folks, yon know, would sooner
be an old man's darling tlianayoun
"I'll wait till the .young man asks
me," answered Amanda, suggestively
as well as wisely, and tossing her head
as she bade him good-bye.
"It can't be that Nell would marry
the deacon for 'his means,' " mused
Tom; "Amanda's such a little apple
blossom that It's hard for a fellow to
make up his mind. Jehu ! what a con
ceitrd as3 1 am! Perhaps Nell would
not marry me any way. There's a look
in her eyes, though, that makes me feel
sometimes as if there wasn't anybody
else in the wide world and then
Amanda '11 throw one of her saucy
glances this way, and raise the deuce in
"I'm going to make some of those
raised doughnuts that father likes,"
said Amanda that evening; "I'm going
surprise him with "em."
"Wa'al, there's nothin' ter bender,"
returned her mother, "only the empt
in's is out.
"That's always the way, if I take a
notion to do anything"
"Wa'al, you don't take a notion often
enough ter hurt, but as your're sot on
you might toss up a roily poly; he
likes that a sight better, only it's apt to
swell in his stomach."
"Dear me! but stains your hands so,
peeling apples!" said Amanda, who
wa3 too ornamental to be very useful
fact, the neighbors had asserted long
ago that the Wheatings were spoiling
Amanda; and she wasn't brought up
a farmer's daughter should be; she
couldn't make up a baking nor take off
churning more than a baby. These
things had come to Farmer Wheating's
ears, and had made them burn. So
when he had come home to dinner, and
found the roly-poly smoking hot on
the table, he smacked his lips and said :
"Jest seo what a wife your mother is,
Mandy! Yon'll never have the sense
make such a tit-bit for your husband
like this 'ere. You'll hev to perk up
and get accomplished in yourcookin',
Mandy, if you want to get married; fer
they do say as how a 'man's heart's
reached through his stomach, and I
dunno but they're about right."
"I guess I sha'n't have much trouble
getting married when I want to,
pouted Amanda, with a toss of her head.
"And that's all the thanks I get for
staining my hands peeling apples, and
blistering my face over the oven !"
"Holloa, Mandy, you don't mean ter
that yoii-made-.lt! I'd ns soon ex
pect the moon ter turn ter green
"You're mighty encouraging. When
Nell cooks up things just to please her
father, lie always praises 'em up to the
skies; and it isn't so hard for Nell, be
cause she was brought up to It," sulked
"Wa'al, aia'tl a-praisin' It, Mandy?
Ain' I been helping to it twice ? What
better praise can you hev than that?"
"Nell's (joing to have a piano, too,
pouted Amanda, who was hankering
after something more substantial than
"Apianny! What's she goin'todo
with it? Keep it fur the chickens ter
roost on ? Old Eustus is a-shellin' out,
'pears to me. I s'pose you'll be wantin'
"I'd give all L'm wortli to get one
first," confessed Amanda. "She'll be
highfalutin'jrou can't touch her, and
dreadful uncomfortable to live be
side neighbors who put on airs!"
"And I s'pose a pianny would make
you kinder humble like, Mandy. Wa'al
you was ter take a premium at the
county fair for the best butter, I'd buy
you a pianny.. There's a bargain for.
"Lor sakes ! I never made a pound
all my born days. But mother could
"No, no, mother shan't put a linger
It honor bright. I'm goin' fur ter
show the folks how as you're equal to
any of the farmers' daughters. I ain't
going ter have it thrown in my face no
longer that I've fetched you up above
"Well, I don't care if I fry it. If I
don't take the premium, there won't be
any harm done; and If I do, you'll buy
a brand-new seven octave piano
"Yes, I will; seven octave or seventy
whatever an octave may be."
And so Amanda went to work with a
will; she was diligent at the weekly
churning. Nell always sent butter to
county fair, and had taken a pre
mium only lastyear. If she could only
eclipse Nell ! And there was Tom Bri
erly, too. How proud he would be to
tike her to the county dinner the best
butter made in Brierly Centre for Tom
appreciated those things, and she heard
him declare that he should be proud of
domestic wife who could turn her
hand to anything, Mrs. Kitchen ; and
reason why she had never striven
from that pinnacle was because she
fancied that ho would bo proud of her
any terms. Beaux came by nature
but n piano was a different affair. Still
had 110 faith in her own handicraft,
and every time that she sent her butter,
market she expected it to return un
sold. The fair was to be held In Bri
erly Centre that year, and the time
drew near, aud Amanda got so nervous
over the prospect that she dreamed she
was a pound of butter left to melt in
the sun; aud her favorite nightmare
was that the premium was Tom, and
Nell's butter took it. She found out
the days on which Nel churned, and
she always took care to drop in and taste
the butter, In order to compare It with
her own, which did not in the least con
duce to her comfort, but left the bitter
flavor of envy upon her palate.
'What are you going to stamp your
butter with, Nell?" she asked orie day,
while Nell was braiding a rag mat, and
Tom Brierly offered suggestions about
harmony in the color of the mat.
"Oh, I always use that old stamp of
grandma's, the sheaf of wheat," re
plied Nell. "There, will this piece of
scarlet flannel be out of taste here be
side the strips of an old blue delaine,
wno ever Heard, of taste In a rag
mat?" laughed Amanda, peevishly.
"Do let's talk about the fair. I've got
butter on the brain."
"A fatty degeneracy of the brain
eh?" insinuated Tom.
"Now don't laugh ; If yon had a pre
mium to take, you wouldn't feel so
"Wouldn't I, though?"
"Do you send your butter to the town
hall, Nell, in your butter box, just as
if it was going to market?"
Exactly," said Nell, sorting her rags
"this bit of orange would go in badly
there! yes, with my name on a card
in the box."
"Would you mind lending me your
stamp the sheaf of wheat after you've
done using it?"
"Not the least In the world."
"I broke mine last churning."
"I'll send It over." And that was
how It happened that Nell stamped her
own butter with a strawberry instead
of a sheaf of wheat.
So far Amanda had been as honest as
the sun. "Mother" hadn't so much as
touched the churn-dasher, and it was
not till the evening before fair-day that
tbe father of lies, or original sin, made
suggestion to her naturally not in ac
cordance with "honor bright."
The butter, cheese, vegetables,fruit,
and fancy-work were all displayed in
the town hall, ready for the morrow's
udgment, Nell's and Amanda's among
the rest; and It had unfortunately fall
en to Mr. Wheating's part he being
one of the judges on fruit and vege
tables, and flie nearest neighbor to
lock up the hall and take tbe key home,
In order to make sure that the products
of the country were not molested
Amanda saw him come in aud hang
the key behind the keeping-room door,
"What's that, father?" she asked.
"It's the key to the town hall that's
And then her eyll genius "said his
way," and she wrestled with him till
all the house was asleep, and was worst
ed. She threw a shawl over her shoul
ders just as the clock-struck eleven, and
took down the key stealthily, looking
over her shoulder- the while. "I must
have the plane at all odds," her thoughts
ran, "and as for the premium. I'll make
up to Nell some day." The moon
light was so bright she had 110 need of
lantern. She hurried across the fields
Into the highway, brushing the dew as
she went straight to the town hall and
let herself In. The moou, playing fan
tastic pranks among the strange as
semblage there, startled her at first. A
mammoth cabbage seemed to be sha
king its head at her; the eyes in the
potatoes winked at her knowingly, the
air was rank with the .odor of fruit,
She knew exactly where her butter box
had been placed, aud Nell's too; she
remembered that the boxes were coun
terparts of each other, both small and
unpainted. All she did in the' world
was to put her pjwnboxJuthe place-oi
Theirs, and exchange cards with her,
Then she slipped out again, and the
great door groaned on its hinges, and
the groan echoed through the silent
hall; and before she was lairly out of
shadow, somebody passed by on the
other side, whistling, "The rose thatall
are praising." She drew the shawl over
her head; for It was Tom Brierly who
paused and looked after her retreating
figure. Where had Tom been at this
hour? At Nell's, perhaps, looking at
the piano. She had seen it arrive tint
night with her own eyes, and had not
plucked up heart enough to go in and
praise it. It seemed too bad that Nell
should have the piano and premium
botii ; for the foolish girl hadn't a doubt
but Nell's butter would be the best; it
had taken the premium oucc, and peo
ple weren't apt to retrograde in the
matter of making butter. But then, if
Tom should find her out, how he would
despise her, and at that thought, though
she was hurrying away from her mis
deed, she would gladly have returned
and made it all honor bright again, but
for fear of meeting Tom and being de
tected. The next day tlio roads were gay.aud
alive witli folks flocking in from the
neighboring towns, dressed iu their
Sunday best. There was a plowing
match worth seeing, at which Tom
Brierly himself took a prize; and, to
crown all, there was a grand dinner
the big tent, to which everybody
walked by twos to tbe music of tbe fife
and drum from West Brierly, and all
the nobodies stood aside and stared, and
consoled themselves with sarcastic re
marks on the toilettes In the procession,
and then went and peeped through the
chinks of the tent till their mouths
Tom Brierly came In a little late to
the dinner, Mushed and handsome from
the plowing, and. Amanda's heart gave
great thump when he dropped Into a
vacant scat besido Nell, while shesat
opposite witli nobody but Deacon Small
do the gallantries.
"I hope I'm not putting myself into
somebody else's place," said Tom.
"I guess it's all right," answered Dr.
Thoroughwort. "There's many who'd
like to put themselves into your shoes,
And Amanda cringed as if some
body had struck her, and Nell blushed
becoming rose-color. And then fol
lowed speeches, and toasts, and flirta
tions, and pbllopgnatng, and Amanda
sat through it all, shivering and burli
ng by turns, hearing nothing of the
pleasantries going on about her, with
relish for cake or comfit,'bccause
NcllEustis had taktn'the first premium
butter! That has been the result of
her night's work of exchanging cards
and butter boxes with Noll! To bo
sure, it was Amanda's butter that had
taken the prize, in spite of her want of
faith, but how could she make it known ?
With what faco could she declare It?
Surely her sin had found' her out.
"Seems ter me you ain't got your
usual spirits nor appetite, Miss Mandy,"
said the deacon. "In love, eh? Won
you hev a drop of this honey, say? It'll
make your cheeks red an' your hair
curl. Patty Jones took the premium
on honey, did you see? The doctor he
ashed her, the wag, if she made it, or
the bees. I s'pose Miss Nell's rather
set up. with her premium on butter,
ain't she? Yonng Brierly is kinder
sweet on her, eh ?"
At the other side of the table Tom
Brierly was whispering to Nell, "So I see
your rag mat took the prize. If it was
for sale I should buy It."
"Oh, I'll give It to yon, if you want it,
Tom," said A ell.
"There's something else I wish you'd
give me instead, Nell. Have you tasted
these gilly-flowcrs? What's the matter?
You look pale. Any deadly secret on
your mind. Make me father confessor,
Nell, do! I'm afraid that it doesn't
agree with you to take premiums. I'll
teli you what, Nell, if you'll marry me,
and come up to the nail to live, I shall
think I've drawn the first premium in

breath, "I don't know what to do!

I didn't take the premium for but

"Is that ali ?" cried Tom. "You gave

been changed in your cradle."
"Now. don't laugh at me, Tom."
"It's no laughing matter, when a fcl

"Oh, Tom, what do you want more

nowever,Mrs. Wheating herself come
to the rescue. She went into the town
hall to taste the prize butter by means
of which poor Amanda had lost the pi

Chicago, III., July 14 A lire start
ed about 4 :30 r. ji. in some small frame
houses near Fourth Avenno and Polk
street. It was at first biowed south
ward by a stiff breeze, but tlio wind
soon shifted, aud by sunset the breeze
blew a gale from the south, sending the
fire towards the central part of that
:ity.. At half past six o'clock the fire I
had made almost a clean sweep up to
the corner of Third avenue and Polk
street, burning up the homes of thous
ands of people. At the above comer
the fire department commenced the pro
cess of blowing up buildings with gun
powder, but the buildings experiment
ed with were but small wooden affairs
aud would only have the effect of mak-
ng a quicker blaze of them, and the
wind blowing as it docs very fresh from
about southwest, the lire is now on the
verge of the llru lino of our big lire.
At Harrison street the west side of
Wabash avenue Is now In full blast,
which takes many a stately building In
its courso which offered a havon of ref
uge In the winter of 1871. The llro Is
now Just Immediately in the rear of the
First Baptist Church, and should that
structure go down the fire will have a
clear sweep to the northward and cast
ward and the Exposition Building will
In all likelihood be the final prey of the
fire, and as that is Immediately 011 the
lake shore there will be nothing furth
er for the fire to feed upon, provided we
have the good fortune not to have a
change of wind.
A dense black pall of smoke is hang-
ing over the expected course of the lire
dropping Its advance messengers of cin
de on the roofs of the buildings, al
though private citizens are doing their
utmost in trying to prevent the fire get-
ting a hold upon their homes, yet the
effort is as futile as for a child to make
the attempt. The roar of the advanc
ing furnace has the sound of our
old calamity, and nothing short of its
final plunge into Lake Michigan will
quench it. Our streets within -a mile
of the conflagration are crowded with
teams of. every description loaded to
their utmost capacity with household
goods. Although store-keepers who
are so fortunate as to secure a team are
endeavoring to save their most valuble
stock, wherever a vacant space north of
the fire can be found it is at once filled
with goods of all descriptions and varie
ty. Men, women and children are do
ing their ntmost to save their little all
and bringing it to some place of safety.
The work.of the fire from this on will
burn up as much in five minutes as it
has previously .in fifteen, considering
the value in dollais and cents. The
heat is very great, and no doubt that in
addition to the pecuniary loss -we will
have to mourn the loss of lives, as It is
next to immpossible for a fire of this
magnitude and fury, and burning
through as closely a settled district as
this has without calling for many a hu
man sacrifice. As the postoffice

the department be sucoessful. In saving
their valuables. The principal lines of
tlie western union Telegraph Co., run
ning east through State street, have' all
been burned some forty wires but as
the lines on Canal street are out of all
possible danger, there will be no inter
ruption of telegraphic communicati6n
The fire has burnt over so far about
half a mile In length and some four
blocks in width, and although the ex
plosion of gun-powder still is heard
every little while there is but little
hopes ol stoping the fire short of the
limits given above.
As predicted in a previous dispatch,
the fire swept into and over the elegant
First Baptist Church' on Wabash ave
nue, and what was this evening before
sundown one of the most elegant and
costly church edifices of our city is now
but a mouldering mass of ruins. As it
was very evident from the course of
the fire and strength of the wind at
about half-past six o'clock the postof
fice building was in all probability
doomed, Gen. McArthur, our postmas
ter, made arrangements at once to re
move the mails to a place of safety and
all needed teani3 were at once pressed
into service by him, and by eight in
the evening the last loaded wagon left
building, and the place that had been
the depository of United States malls
centering here was deserted forever,
for at ten minutes of eight the buildin
first caught and by half-past eight
o'clock it was a mass of flame. Tbe
wind by eight o'clock had died ayay,
which assisted our tire department
greatly in becoming master of the sit
uation. At the corner where the post-
office was situated at Wabash avenue
and Harrison street, the very po'nt
where our previous fire was stopped,
our firemen seemed to be inspired with
superhuman efforts to prevent its
spreading into the rebuilt district, and
here it was that all their efforts were
concentrated' to bar its further progress
Tiic building on the southwest corner
was a dwelling house, and by making a
bulwark of this against the ever on
coming sheets of flame the prospect of
holding this building and saving It and
thereby preventing the progress of the
fire through to Michigan avenue was
quite promising at half-past eight
o'clock, whereas, the northwest corner
of these streets, occupied by tbe post-
office, was then a mass of flames. How
ever, as a very high brick building ad-
joined'the postoffice on the north there
Is no donbt that the spread of the. fire
north onWabash avenne from this point
has been checked. Among, the build
ings destroyed on the east'side of Wa
bash avenue was the church building
formerly occupied by the congregation
of Robert Laird Collier. It seems some
what singular "that this 'conflagration
should be checked at the- same 'place
where our previous biir fire wa3 check
ed and that the very building spared by
the previous lire should now be one of
the last to succumb. This time the
mails were all removed to the sub-station
on the corner of West Washington
and Halstead streets, between Eldrige,
Court, and Harrison streets. On the
eastsido'ol Wabash avenue somo dozen
handsome buildings were destroyed,
while on the whole of the west side of
the street between these limits every
building was leveled with the ground,
and looking westwardly'the same dead'
level of ruins was presented so vividly
engraved on the memory of our Inhab
itants In 1S71. The losses entailed by
this fire in the destruction and removal
of goods and furniture Is in 'all proba
bility as great as the actual loss of build
ings and property destroyed up to half
past eight, for It takes but a moderate
sized flro now-a-day to set Chicago peo
ple to clearing out their goods and
chattels, ami about every store along
Wabash'avcnue aud State Street, as far
north as Monroe street was removing
its goods or the most; valuable part there
of to a place of safety, and the dwelling
houses In the apparent lino sf the fire
wcro uotslow in following thcsam eiii-
stiuct of self-preservation by the remov
al of everything portable from cellar to
garret, and their destruction entailed
by this speedy and hurried exodus will
never figure among the losses sustained
by insurance companies. Considering
tho area burnt over tlio losses to in
surance companies are very light.

families lost their all and have been

ChiCAqo, July 14 ILp. m. Contrary
to the. hopeful expectations expressed
at half-past eight o'clock, the fire from
that time has gained upon the fire de
partment. In spite of all efforts by oar
whole fire department the fire at half
past ten had progressed northward and
taken la the block on the east side of
State street, Which were low wooden
buildings, and on Wabash avenue,north
from Harrison, one block and .a half,
taking in botii sides or the street and
working over along Michigan avenne
to the north' towards the Exposition
building. The fire is at present be
tween Van Buren and Jackson in its
northern limit, and burning with great
fierceness. At present the fire is ap
parently beyond control of the flro de
partment and engines are on the way
from Bloommgton, Milwaukee, Joliet,
Elgin, Bacine,.Aurora, Dixon and Am
boy to assist; and if the wind does not
Increase or change, there is great hope
now that tbe Are may be crowded into

Among the notable buildings which
have been destroyed, is th Gardner
House, St. James Hotel, Continental
Hotel and the Adelphi Theatre. The
fire is within two blocks of the Palmer
House, and the consternation Is very
great among the guests. The roof of
that Hotel Is being protected y men
with.water appliances of their ownnd
every effort will be made by the proprie
tors to save the building.
Chicago, July 14 1:30 p. m. Th
southern bounds of the fire are now
No. 4b Wabash' avenue just south of
Eldrige Court, No. 518 State street near
Harrison Court, No. 232 Third avenue
between PeckCourt and Twelfth street.
On the corner of Peck Court and Wa
bash avenue is the only point where the
flames have any, hold.
The fire originated in a paint manu
facturing shop corner Twelfth and
Clark. Some men were mixing paint
and an explosion occurred, which-ignited
the building on the north.
A fire has broke out at the corner of
Michigan avenne and Congress. The
Michigan Avenue Hotel is on fire- It is
probable tbe Exposition Building and
Art Gallery cau be saved. On State
street the fire has passed Jackson and
Is within one block of the Palmer
House. On 'Wabash avenue it Is almost
on the corner of Jackson, and the Mat-
teson House in imminent danger. One'
fireman has fallen-through the roof and
been killed by the tall. A policeman
had his leg broken while attempting to
rescue" a boy.
CntCAGo, July 14, 12;30 p. it. At
12:10 o'clock, the wind being westerly
tho fire was confined to very near Van
Buren street on the north. Gilbert &
Sampson's furniture warehouse on Wa
bash avenue, running through to State
street, were on lire, but with a fair pros
pect of 'subduing it, and the Gardner
House before mentioned as being burn
ed should have been the Michigan ave
nue Hotel, which, is situated on the
corner of Congress street. The Gard
ner is safe, as' also some half dozen
stores 011 the east side of Wabash ave
nue, south of Van Buren street. The
building occupied by the Shureman
Marble Company, corner Michigan ave
nne and Van Buren streets occupied in
the upper stories by the Art Gallery,
is intact, although the buildings to tbe
north and south of 1 1 succumbed to the
flames. Van Buren street seems to be
about the northern extremity of the
fire. There being only the Lake to the
east of the hottest fire, with the wind
tending rather towards it, has done a
large share towards making our losses
lighter than would otherwise have been
the case. Tbe fire appears now princi
pally confined to the Michigan avenue
Hotel, and when that is finally burned
down there will be little elso but
ruins to mark the course of to-day's
Cuicago, July 14 3 p. m. The fire
is now completely under control and it
seems impossible that there can b much
further damage done. Three men have
been killed an Van Buren street by
the falling of a wall. Three Chicago
steamers werd burned, the fire driving
tho men from their positions. Mnch
hose was destroyed by the fire. A
strong patrol of police are protecting
property in the vicinity of the fire,
knocking thieves right and left.
The limits of the fire are as follows :
On South Clark street, No. 635V to about
Twelfth; on North Clark to about
Polk; On Dearborn south the limits Is
near Twelfth street; north limit, Polk
and Wabash avenue; southern limit,
Harmon. court; northern limit, between
Jackson and Van Buren streets; south
era limit, Harmon's, Court; northern
limit; nearly to Jackson. Third ana
Fourth avenues are burned nearly their
whole length. The fire burned a num
ber of houses on Michigan avenue, but
has not damaged that street to any great
amount. Somo twenty blocks are burn
ed. The loss Is variously estimated,
but cannot be given with accuracy. It
will not ba less than $4,000,000, or prob
ably not over $6,000,000. This is cover
ed by about twoflfth3 Insurance which
divided among numerous companies.
Since the great fire the companies have
been very careful not to take large
risks in one locality. A number of com
panies' will however, undoubtedly suc
cumb to the drain upon them.
