change in the police fotce. .He gave the
statement voluntarily thvit Mr. Lloyd
Hysiop was slated for chief and that
Mr. Samuel T. Montague was down for
assistant chief. We had no reason to
doubt the same and to make it much
stronger he referred to the name of a
gentleman who was approaohed by
some of the Council and asked to be?

police commissioner. The reporter call?

OFTTINO WOR8J3 AND WORSE.
The Virginian 'has repeatedly spoken
of the condition of our streets, whltfh
are ?simply getting worse and worse,
and there are no one at work on them
at nil, not even to cleaning out the
gutters, which are in a dreadful condi?
tion nil around the city. On Water
street, from King'to County, the gutters
are simply awful and this Is: Ohe of the
most public plncos In the city. It be?
came necessary to cut down the street
appropriation and put men off, but
after awhile t'he stros-ts will get so
.?that it will take a large force to gel
them nil right ngaln, ami this will cost
much more than It would to keep a
.small force at work all the time. Stir
yourself, gentlemen, or else pray for a
heavy rain t.t do your work before yen
have cause to regret the same.

FI RIO AT THE JAIL.
Yesterday morning about l o'clock
Mr. Joseph Abbott and wife were awak?
ened front a sound sleep caused by a
number of female prisoners In the city
.Jail .screaming "lire! fire!" Mr. AbboU
jumped tip. went out In the hall and
found It filled with smoke. He began
looking to see where the fire came
I from. One of the women pointed to a
cell opposite hers and said: "There It
Is." Mr. Abbott was not long in getting
the door open and found that a box
containing rubbish that had been put in
that cell, which was unoccupied; had
caught on tire and was burning lively
when the women gave the alarm. Ho
threw the box out the window and
opened the outside windows t<o let the
smoke out. "
It Is said that the trash has been In
that cell for some .time ?nd that some
mice had made a bed In lili&m, and must
have carried some matches there, which
set. the trash on lire. A number of lit?
tle mice were seen In tho box. Tho
damage to the Jail was nothing, but the
fright of the Inmnttes wliA discovered
the lire was terrible, and If It had not
been found out so soon It might have
resulted In something serious. It was
kept quiet all day, but It finally leaked
out and the reporters got hold of it.

Mrs. Anne Armstrong, of County
Clare, Ireland, for Pure.
(From the Chicago Chronicle.)
In the year lT.xi, when Lord Corn
wallls began In Joy and ended in dis?
aster Iii.-: campaign in Virginia against
I the'American colonists, liiere was born
at Fermanagh, Ireland, a girl baby,
who, living yet, nt the age of 11C years,
Is bei le vel to be the oldest person in
the world. While thai baby was still In
arms Lafayette and Washington were
marshaling their forces to check the
Victorious march of Cornwallia through
Virginia, and on October 19th of that
year Lud Comwallis surrendered his
army at Yorktown, and the Indopon
i! nee nf what Is now the United States
of America wns assured.
That girl-child whose life began al?
most with that "f the United States is
Mrs. Anne Armstrong, now of County
Clare, Ireland. She grew up In Fer?
managh and married there. Her hus?
band was a member of the royal con
stahtilnrly. When she was 2(5 years bid
she and her husband moved to Mil
town Mnlbny, in County Clare.
That was ninety years ago. In a lit?
tle thatched cottage a: Spanish Point,
just outside IMilitown Mai bay, Mrs
Armstrong lives, all alone, waiting for
the time when she .shall be called to
join those who were dear to her, who
died ye.irs and ye.ins ago.
Tho days that she has lived through
have been fraught with the moft won?
derful events of the world's history,
but the particular period which im?
pressed its evorits most firmly upon
Mrs. Arms!: uig's memory woe that of
the great Irish rebellion of 17:i8, when
she was a laes of 17. She tells still of
how Irishmen were hanged or shot or
imprisoned without trials, and of the
reign of terror which held for years.
Mrs. Armstrong is s=;!!l able to walk
and c.vro for herself and her little cot?
tage by the aid which her kindly neigh
li.'r-? give her. She Is thin and Blightly
deaf, but her sight Is good and her
memory; clear. Her dress Is simple,
but a cap and apron of snowy whiteness
are always part of It. Her hab.'ts are
alga simple. At 4 or "> o'clock <.4(fh af?
