tne most dUatroun falls ever before known In Cairo.
While the store wm crowded wTh customers, each
one eajfcr to purchase the unusual bargains offered by
' this popular firm the eutire i ress Hoods Department
fell without a nicmrurt notice. I'oi tunately, there were
uo lives lout, but the damage otherwise was or a serious

beeu estlmat-d The pn.flt of tl.Hr elleut Hue of

thcv now oflnr this most elefant line at first cost. The
r fall has so mutilated the prices or the Colored Mlks and
Satins that in order to r- cover they must be sold with
out irortf. The prices of the followiusr. (roods were
damaeed 35 ner-cent, viz: Cashmeres, trench Dia- ' .

I'Mii Bunting aud, in fact, the entire stock of Diess

friends, who sympathize with them in ihe accident, nd

A BAD BLAZB.
Yesterday niorniot; about 8 o'clock a
fierce fire alarm was given by steamers iu
tbe harbor, engines on the track and tire
bells. Fire was discovered in the roof of
one of Messrs. Ilalliday Bro'i w are hou.scs, !
just below The Ilalliday Ilotel, aud though
prompt rfftrts were made by the steamers
with thoir powerful pumping apparatuses
aud aUo by the tire department ot the city,
tbe most that could be done was to cuufiue
the fliiiif9 to the one building.
The fire was discovered before it had
niadu very much headway, near one of the
dues, which fact, iu the absence of any
positive knowledge as to the origin, leads
to the conclusion that sparks from the flue
ignited the roof which was very dry. The
building was about two hundred feet lon,
wcventy-flve wide, and two stories hiih,and
cobtaini'd a lage quantity of flour aud
some hays Etforts were made to save the
contents, and twenty-five or thirty barrels
of floor and a few pieces of office furniture
were saved; hut the flames spread so rap
idly that further efforts in this direction
had to be abandoned and tbe whole build
ing and contents were utterly destroyed.
Tim ferry bout, tugs, and transfer steamer
MeCoiub and Duncan reudered very impor
tant serviue,and in view of the fact tout the
city' Are dpnrtment found great difficulty
to reach the seat of tbe flames because of
the peculiar surroundings, it wss duo
principally to these steamer, especially to
thu McComb, tbat tho lower warehouso was
not also caught and destroyed. This
might have resulted in the burning of the
oil station of Chess, Carley & Co., and the
exploBion of thu huge tanks filled with oil
would have created foarlul havoc. Hut tho
city fire department was out in full force,
on good time, aud did creditable work.
Tne Illinois Central, railroad company
bad twelve or Qttoen passenger coaches
standing along the track in front of the
building, and six or eight freight cars on
tho track right under the eaves of the
flumiug roof. Agent H. C DiPew was
one of the tint men on the ground and
with a strong force of men and engines suc
ceeded la removing all of them out of
harm's way belore they were eaught by tbe
fire which was being blown i directly to
ward them; but the heat was so. lotvnao
that several couches standing live hundred
yard awuy wore lightly scorched. One
freight car partly laden with flour was to
tally destroyed, a it stood on the same
track close to the building with tho other
freight cars, but wa detachod from them.
. The building wa a very tubtantlal ono,
