Temble and Disastrous Fires.
A disastrous fire broke out
Tuesday morning in the St Roche
suburb of Quebec, by which 5,
000 or 6,000 people were render
ed homeless, and over $100,000
worth of property difctroryed.
The fire originated in a ba
ker's shops and although troops
were called ont and efforts made
to stay its progress by blowing
up houses, all efforts were .una
vailing. Two ships on the stocks
were also burned.
Large number of houses were
destroyed belonging to the bet
ter class, having been rebuilt af
ter the fire of 1666. Two men
are missing aua a. numoer or
accidents have oocured. Home
less people are being lodged by
the corporation, and there will
be great distress unless outside
aid is received.
Also a terrible and disastrous
fireoccured in St Louis on Tues
day evening, "destroying entirely
the Republican offices of that
city, with a loss of near $200,000,
Insurance, $106,000, other build
tags adjoining were damaged
the amount of about $30,000.
THE CRAIG MICROSCOPE.
This Microscope is simplified
and adapted to popular as well
as scientific use. A new optical
wonder ! This is the only instru
ment of high power which requir
es no focal adjustment, and there
fore can be readily used by every
one, even by children. Costing
only Two Dollars and Seventy
five Cents, by mail, post paid, it
is within reach of all in tbe com
munity, and should be on the
table of every Practioner. Read
adveriseraent in this paper.
The Trichina Spiralis or Pork
Perhaps it is not generally
known that the much talked oi
trichina spiralis, or pork worm,
was first discovered In America
by Dr. R. C. Kendall, of Phila
delphia, Pa., with that American
instrument known as the Craig
Microscope, costing only $2 75,
after repeated failures to discov
er the worm with an imported
microscope, costing $55, "of feeb
ler power and less reliable." This
fact Dr. Kendall stands ready to
prove at any time. The "Craig"
Microscope in neat box with full
direction is mailed anywhere for
$2.75, by E. II. Ross. 313 Locust
St., St. Louia, Mo. Read adver

A Wonderful Microscope.
Rev. Daniel Wise, D. D., editor
of the -ew York Sunday School
Advocate thus speaks of the cel
ebrated Craig Microscope :
u Its simplicity, cheapness and
great magnifying power struck
me with surprise. Then I was
examining a fly's eye by its aid,
and was struck with wonder
at the skill and power of the Cre
ator which is displayed in its
structure. When j sa-.v a state
ment in an advertisement that
tbe Craig Microscope magnified
one hundred diameters, and could
be bought for $2.75, I thought it
was one of tbe humbugs of the
hour, for I had paid $20 for a
microscope not long before. But
now I find it to be a really valu
able instrument, which I should
like to see introduced into the
families of car readers in the
place of manifold useless toys
which pleas for an hour, and is
then destroyed. This microscope
would both amuso and inatrnct
them and I advise every boy and
girl who wishes to know the
wonders which lie in little things
to save his money uutil he has
$2.75, which w 11 pay for the mic
roscope and the postage when
sent by mail."
As a holiday gift this micro
scope is unsurpassed, being orna
mental instructive, amusing and
cheap, and never losses its inter
est. Agents and dealers suppli
