Vols. We have just received a letter
from a correspondent in Keystque,
South Dakota, assuring us that Mr.
Leonard is still living, and a resident of
that town? iand as this correspondent
happens to be Mr. Leonard himself,
there appears to be no ground for any
doubt in the premises. He says that
he was born in Pike county, Nov. 2",
1846, and wjll be glad to hear from' any
of his old Pennsylvania friends. Mr.
Leonard is President, of the" North Fork
Mining and Milling Company at Key

boarding house, on Church street, on
Friday evening last, which gave the in
mates of the house as well as the neigh
bors a genuine fright. One of the board
ers had kindly helped the landlady out
by polishing a parlor stove about to be
set up, using a preparation in which
gasoline was a principal-ingredient. His
success was so great that he added a
work of supererogation by giving a llirt
of his brush at the red-hot kitchen range.
Instantly a flash followed, which set fire
to the gasoline remaining in the can, and
in a moment tho whole interior of the
kitchen was in a blaze. With rare pres
ence of mind, and at great risk to him
self, his clothing being already on fire,
he (lung the can out of doors and gave
efficient aid in. subduing the flames,
which had already made sufficient head
way to damage thq woodwork, curtains
and floor covering of the room, and in
volve a considerable loss. Although
great commotion was caused in the street,
no fire alarm ' was sent in,' and the ser
