'brought to town that the prairie
was afire Northwest of town, and
immediately a hundred men started
in teams towards the approaching fire,
armed with brooms and sacks. Arriving
at Alred .rown's farm, two miles

residence was saved. but all his house

O;e miie: North of Brown's the fire
gured, Ienry Hagelfry out of every
Sar -*possession. His louse, barns
and stock were consumed and he barely
escaped with his family.
Across from Hagelfry lived S. K. Tom
linson, a prosperous farmer. and every
thing about his place except his house
was swept away. Five horses and sev
eral head of live stock were among his
losses: His wife was home alone when
the fire= broke otit, and could do noth

By evening the fire in the West had
been extinguished, but it is still raging
in the Southeast. The town of Olivette,
the County seat of Hutchinson County,
eight miles North, is reported to be
more than half burned up. Bridges on
the railroad West of town were burned.

;dded to the terrors of the situation.
The loss is estimated at $50,000. The
County Commissioners are in session
and will see that no one suffers for the
necessaries of life.
From Huron, Dakota, comes the fol
lowing: No prairie fire in the history of
this part of Dakota equals that of Tues
day. In this County the losses are much
less than in the Counties West. Half a
dozen houses were burned and many
settlers lost their barns, some stock and
a large quantity of hay and grain. The
wind was from fifty to sixty miles an
hour and sent the burning embers over
the ploughed ground and fire-bteaks
several rods wide, setting fire to every
thing in their course. The fire came up
so rapidly that settlers had only time to
save themselves, leaving their property
to the mercy of the flames. In Sully
and IIughes Counties $200,000 worth of
property has been destroyed. Near

death, and near St. Lawrence Mr Bab

REAL PATHOS ON THE STAGE.
Marie Prescott Plays Parthenia" With C
an Aching Heart, and Gives Way to
PHILADELPHIA, April 7.-A startling y
incident occurred at the Arch Street l
Theatre during Marie Prescott's per- h
formance of "Ingonar' on Monday t
night, which illustrates in a forcible 3
manner the pathetic side of stage r
life. While Miss Prescott was in (
her dressing room preparing for the 1
next act a blue-coated messenger boy f
tapped at the door and a moment later 1
handed in a telegram. e
It was only a line, but it caused the c
actress to grow pale and almost fall to f
the floor. It was from her home, and
simply announced the death of her son,
young man of 16, who had been the s
idol of her heart. Before she had re- I
covered from the shock the call boy
came to announce the act. By a power- 1
ful effort she roused herself, and with
a heroism that would have done credit
to a Spartan mother. went on the stage 1
to continue the entertainment for the l
benefit of the waiting audience.
The most dramatic part of the event, f
however, was yet to come. Just as the
act:ess. in her part of Parthenia, says to
Ingomar: "I will never see thee more.'
she fell senselc.s and prostrate at his
feet. It was some moments before the
audience realized the situation. Some
thought it was in the play, but they 1
were soon undeceived. Several sym
pathetic spectators, grasping the state
of things, cried out: "Lower the cur
tains!" This was (lone and restoratives
were applied to the actress.
In less than ten minutes the play was
resumed, the star sustaining her difficult 1
part-rendered still mre difficult under 1
the circumstances-with heroism that
called forth unstinted praise. After the
performance she was removed to her
hoteT in a coupe.
The whole affair had about it a dra
matic flavor that made it of intense in
terest, and evoked the hearty sympatby
of the large audience. The majority of
the spectators were under the imptes
sion that Miss Prescott was ill, and left
the house without learning the real
cause of the agitation on the stage.
Nervous prostration was feared, but her
manager, John Whitely, stated at a late
hour that she was resting as comfortably
as could be expected.

BISrARCK'S EYES ARE OPEN.
He Wants to Know How Much We Are
Crippled by the Samoan Disaster.
WASHINGTON, April 4.-The German
Minister to-day received a telegram in
eipher from Prince Bismarck instructing
him to cable at the earliest moment the
names of the vessels ordered by the
Secretary of the Navy to proceed to
Samoa and take the place of those
wreked by the hurricane there of March
15; also, the number of men and officers
carried by each ship, its tonnage and
horse-power, the number, size and kind
of guns, whether the vessels are
equipped with torpedoes, and whether
the sending of reinforcements to Samoa
will weaken the American navy in any
other part of the world to any consider
able extent. The Minister was also in
structed to find out and report to the
German Foreign Office without loss of
time the condition of the new vessels in
process of construction.
The genuineness of the dispatch may
be denied by the German authorities,
but the New York World correspondent
is able-to vouch for its absolute accu
racy. It will be remembered that sev
eral German naval and military experts
have visited this country since the ap
pearance of the Samoan war cloud for
the purpose of reporting to the German
War Office upon the condition of our
saval and military armaments. From

That's the common exclamation of those suffering with rheumatism or kidney troubles. In
either disease Paine's Celery Compound will surely effect a cure, and there will no longer be
any cause to complain of "poor backs." Hundreds of testimonials like the follow
ing confirm our claims for that grand old remedy, Paines's Celery Compound:
"Two weeks ago I could not sleep more than an hour at a time any night,
was constipated and kidneys did not act, and had a good deal of pain in the
back. Since I took Paine's Celery .' Compound the pain has left my back,
and I can sleep like a child." Zenas Sanders, West Windsor, Vermont.
"Having been troubled with rheumatism for five years, I was almost unable
to get around, and was very often con lined to my bed for weeks at a time. I
have used nearly all medicines imaginable, besides outside advices, but to no advan
tage. Having seen Paine's Celery Com pound advertised, I gave it a trial. I have
used only one bottle and am perfectly cured. I can now jump around and feel
lively as a boy." Frank Caroli, Eureka, Nevada. Price, $r.oo. Six for $5.00.
