Sometimes the wives of senators get

street at a brisk run, dragging the old man
after him. He was halted before he got
very far, but not until the man had become
insensible from the injuries he
received. All possible assistance was
rendered him and he was soon brought
back to a knowledge of what had occurred.
Hisiujuries are not serious, and it is thought J
that he will be all right again in a day or
Our police officers should give some I

it must be the meanest kind of a mean
occurrence that dots not result in some
good to somebody or something. Even
the dastardly attempt to fire the court
house night before lust is not without its
good effects and suggestion. The gxd
eth.ct is that County Clerk Ilumm's
office will be immediately repaired
ami it will be secti at a glance that,
in this respect, the effect would have
grown better as the diabolical schemo to
destroy the building bad been more suc
cessful; for, bad the wretched incendiary
succeeded in burniriL' down the entire
building, we should have had an entirely
new jail and court hou-e, whereas now only
one little corner of it will be made clear of
tho real estate and cobwebs that have been
accumulating upon its floor, walls and
ceiling for lo! these many years.
The good suggestion w alluded to is that
the court house vaults, where the records of
the county and circuit clerks arc kept, are
not equal to an emergency such as might
have happened. The entrance to the vaults
are closed merely by single, not very heavy,
sheet iron doors, w hich would easily warp
under the infiueucu of beat such as they
would be subiected too wei'H thn hniliiim
to uurn ('wn, and then the valuable
records contained in the vaults
wou1'' 'l prey to the flame
The proper position for these vaults would
be outside of the main building a aort of
addition of heavy masonry, with their en-
trances, well protected by massive- doubl-j
'run doors, leading into the offices of the
county and circuit clerks. This is tho sug-
gwtion and the way in which it might be
actfl upon, but it is not likely that it will

that thu fire could have spread. Hut they
were compelled by the suffocating smoke to
give the alarm before the tire had
made very much head way, and hence
they were dixaipointcd. A amall hand
pump and several buckets of water were
brought into use nod by a half hour's good
work on tSn part of the gentlemen in and
about the court house, thu fire that might,
have resulted in the destruction of the
building ami the death of a number of
prisoners was quenched. The smoko pene
trated freely into the county clerk's ofllce,
and it was at first thought that it too was
on lire, but on opening the windows to let

was fortunately found to be a mistake. Tho
prisoners, of course, refuse to tell who tho
incendiary is, but it nily that they will
