A ore broke out about nine o'clock last even

on the south-east corner of Fifth and Race.
It is not definitely known how it caught, but
it was discovered by the residents of the third
and fourth stories of the building, by the
smoke which filled the house so that they had
to be taken from the windows to prevent
death from suffocation. -
The flames were rapidly eommunieated to

Shoots Himself through the Heart.
A well-known cltitiien, Mr. Herman Sneda-
wea, a lardjiil manufacturer, on the Miami
Canal, near Liberty-street, was found ' dead
about eight o'olook yesterday morning in hi
faotory, the floor all around him oovertd with
the crimson life-blood whioh he bad drawn
from hi vein. , -
The exact time of hi death is not known.
although it appears from the circumstance by
whion be was surrounded that he nrst opened
the blood-vefsels In hi arms; but this, ap
parently, proving too slow a method of death,
he took a pistol and (hot himself through the
heart. When discovered he seemed to be en
tirely bloodless, and bad evidently been dead
for some hours.
Coroner Cary was called upon to hold an in
quest upon the body, bat it threw little light
upon the cause of the act. The deceased was
widower and has been oulte snocestful In bis
business, but recently having become Involved
for a large amount, it is thought the fact
brought about a state of mind from whioh there
was no eseape save in death. He was much
esteemed by those who knew him, and leave
