Many of our readers ae familiar with
thj "Prince of the House of David" and

Juw," is needed to make the chain com

Egypt, the Becond of the wanderings in the
desert, and the third of the final overthrow
and downfall of the Hebrews in the Holy
Land, thoir expulsion from Jerusalem and
the beginning of their second and lasting
slavery. The book is out of print, and the

A BAD FIRE.
Monday night about 11 :30 o'clock the
alarm of fire was sounded. The fire de
partment was out within a few minutes but
were somewhat at a loss to know where to
go. higntn street was full of smoke, so
was Commercial aveuuo, but for some min
utes no one seemed to know from whence
it came. Several engines were pulled
around several blocks before it was found
that tho seat of the fire was in the dry-
goods house of Messrs. Goldsteine& Rosen-
water. There the crowd ami the engines
quickly concentrated and the fire was dis
covered in the rear end of the upper story
of the dry-goods department. Nothing
unusual was visible on tho lower floors, but
the smoke came in thick clouds from be
tween the window sashes and casings in
the second story. Officers were placed at
the front doors to keep the crowd out and
prevent a draught of air and the fire com
panies went bravelj to work at tho rear,
gaining access to the second floor by means
ot ladders. The room, which is the car
pet and piece goods department, was filled
with smoke, so that not even the exact lo
cation of the fire could ho seen; but the
fire men pushed forward, with axes and
lantern? and nozzles, drenching the ceiling
and walls and floor with water as they
came, while dozens of others removed the
many piles of goods, both above and below,
and in a few minutes the room was clear of
smoke and a 1 irge charred hole in the ceil
ing, another in the floor just below, and a
quantity of partially burned domestic,
showed where the fire had been.
The location of the fire was peculiar, and
su.:h as would tfive it a good start before it
could be discovered, and difficult to reach
after being found; and the fact that it made
such little headway is due to the admira
ble .nanner in which it was managed by
those in authority and the bravery and ener
gy of the firemen. But though the fire was
confined to the ceiling, floor and a few
pieces of goods, the damage to the stock
generally was heavy. The room above, as
that below, was crowded with goods and
everything in the vicinity of the hre was
drenched ; water stood several inches deep
on the floor and ran through on the fine
goods below. Twenty or thirty pieces of
brussels carpet and perhaps as many ot in-
grane and two and three ply, stood in the
water Mnd were saturated, besides large
q'mntities of piece goods of various des-
scriptions. Below the water rained down
through tho burned and cracked floor iu
ui tny streams upon the piles of fine goods
lying upon counters and shelves, anil
though a small army of men were at work
removing thnm to the clothing department,
ni uiy were saturated. The damage done
ws estimated at between five and seven
theism i dollars all told, and this will
probably be increased if the wet carpets
and other goods remain rolled up for a
wek or longer, awaiting the action of tho
agents of tho several insurance companies.
Bur whatever tho loss may be, it will
be fully covered by insurance. The firm
hold seven thousand five hundred dollars
in companies represented by Messrs. Wells
& Kerth and thirty three thousand tivn hun
dred dollars in companies represented by
Mr. H. H. Candeo.
The causj of the fire is a mystery. There
wa no stove tip-stairs and no gas left
burning no light or fire of any kind left
there when the store was closed at 0 o'clock
and there was no one in tho store at the
time the fire broke out, tlio first alarm be
ing given by Officer McTigun who was
making his mual round and who noticed
tho thick Smoke in tho neighborhood.
Mr. Goldstine Is east, purchasing goods,
and a large quantity of new goods had
already arrived. Mr. R osenwater was at
homo, but did not know of the location of
the fire until after it waa about under con
trol. He has but recently recovered from a
long and severe sickness, aud when ho ar
rived at the fire, was very much aflocted.
Tho store was closed yesterday aud will bo
remain until the iusurance claims shall have

Pkaiiodv, Mass. Tho Press of this city
publishes the following: "A lady who till
recently resided on Central street, in this
towu, had for more than ton years suffered
with pain In her back, which at times was
very severe. One morning as she was
leaving tho house she slipped and fell,
striking her back on a Btono step. Sho was
assisted into the house in groat pain, and it
was feared seriously injured. She used the
rrreat pain cure, St. Jacobs Oil instead of
what tho doctor ordered, and experienced
great relief. By coutluuod use of it, she
has fully recovered, and novr for the first
time for years, she is without any pain In
her bick whatever.

If some of the minutes of Table F.iiquette
were better understood by ladies who,
nienniuii all right, err ou the side of frigidi
ty, meals in public places would pass off
much more agreeably.
To-day I aut dowu at the comer of a
table at The Halliday. S.mhi the usher
placed a lady just arouud the corner facing
rnecli'scly, and uo others f r a loug tiino at
tho table. She never recognized my pres
ence; although my granddaughter toicks I
am good looking, but kept her face turned
sway so as to give me a southwest quarter
ing view of the back of her head and left
ear. Seeing that I wis evidently in the
way I was- tempted before the waiter
brought my dinner to chango to the ad
joining table; but, as that would have been
an insult, I refrained. Our dinner occu
pied half an h ur and during that time I
did not once catch her eye.
Now, while general law rfijuires an in
troduction between two, in such a cae as
tbove, it is perfectly proper for a lady to
recognize the existence of a gentleman, and
by exchanging the customary civilities of
tho table, make time pass more pleasantly.
As it was, both of us felt extremely awk
Of course tho gentleman must not pre

Mr. J. A. Goldstine who Jas been trav
eling in the east for some weeks, has com
bined business and pleasure. He has visit
ed the principal commercial centres as he
went and sent home large quantities of
nsw goods, but he hss also visited some ot
the nolo I education il institutions there and
concerned himself particularly about the
young ladies and gi ntlemen who were sent
there from here. Iu a recent, letter to a
friend here, he mentions Master Jewett
Baker, at West Point, and Misses Halliday
and Shields, at Vasstr College, and pays
them a very high compliment. He says all
the Cairo scholars are regarded by their
teachers there as exceptionally apt and in
dustrious pupils, and a credit not only to
the City of Cairo, but to their state of Illi
nois. All of which is cui-e for general
pleasure among the young folks' many
friends at home.
"I consider St. Jacobs Oil an excellent
