feet cold or burning, sometimes a prickly sensation
of the skin exists; spirits are low and despondent,

try it in fact, distrusts every remedy. Several
of the above symptoms attend the disease, but caset

Wmenttotbotlre that started yesterday

pany house anil burned an hour before it
was discovered. Then it was past all help.
The building fronts 22 feet at 119 Monro
street, and extends back 200 foet. In tho
rinr Is an L, 112 by 120 feet, encirllug
the Montauk block, which towers
above it In height. It is four
stories. Bradner, Smith ft Co. lease tbe
building and.occupy the first floor and base
ment. The second floor Is used by the N'a
tlonal Printing Company, of which C. II.
M:Connell Is the head and owner, and toe
Sbober ft Carquflvllle Company occupy tbe
third and fourth floors. All th firms are
engaged In the printing business.
About 5 o'olook flames were seen issuing
from the northwest corner of the building,
and an alarm was turned on. When the
firemen artnaared If vu Hlcu.r,i ,1... .u-
tire bud been smoldering for an hour, and
a general alarm was given. Tbe engines
that responded came aone ton anon. Tha
entire ttiird and fourth floors UTArtt all
ablaze. Flames wrapped themselves
around pillars and posts, climbed the walls
and ran with destructive force under floors
and along ceilings. Tbe iron shutters of
tbe windows kept them from throwing
their tongues outward to the air. hur a
tbey weru also a defense from the embattl
ing streams or water tbe Ore simply bulged
them In a kindly embrace, and a floor! of
steam was tbe only response when tbe fu
tile water beat against the iron barriers.
Soon tbe firemen climbed the prontoH Uil.

and then from fifty windows burst a flood

UDon tbe numerous ediUcws irmiml 1),.
all towered tbe Montauk block, and below
and beneath arose the hoarolpahnnta nf Hr.
men and tbe commands of their chief. In a
monetary view fftoo.ooo had gone up in
smoke, and insurance comoanlet were
worse hit than by any fire that has occurred
since the great one. That one is the limit
of all calculations. The building Itself be
longs to Samuel A. Crosier, of Upland,
Pa., and was built lo 1878. It cost $60,
000, and the three upper stories are a to
tal loss, it is insured for Q, 000, In vari
ous companies, which will make its owner
even. Tbe loss will fall upon, the insur
ance oompanles. Brader, Smith ft Co.,
who held the leas"h jid of th building, oc
cupied the basement an 1 ttrst floor. They
are a paper house, dealing exclusively in
flat papers, stationery and inks. No fire
touched their stock, which was valued ap
proximately at 1200,000. No account of
stock bas been taken slnoe last April, so it
can not be given in exactness. But it was
subject to a continual rain of water, falling
in showers from the upper stories, which
were ths receptaole for the hose of twentv
engines. They have $173,000 worth of In
surance, placed In numerous oompanles,
THB NATIONAL PRINTING COMPANY.
On the second floor was the National
Printing Company. Their assets footed
up: Stock. $80,000; machinery, $100,000;
wood cuts of many kinds, $00,000. On this
tbey carried $165,000 worth of Insurance.
In addition to this was their business ofBoe,
"tbe hnest office in America," tbe furn
iture and decorations of which cost $19,
000. After the fire tbe sight of tbat office
would make an artist weep. French mir
rors were broken In a thousandp!ecea. The
ax of the eager fireman had cut costly oil
paintings and broken tbeir solden frames.
Expensive engravings were drenched with
water, while the once handsome velvet
carpet squirted indignant andfprotestlng
streams of many bued fluids wbanever the
Visitor stopped upon its saturated surface.
Tbe loss of tbe National Printing com
pany was about two-thirds of the stock.
Tbeir stock of printed matter, $80,000
worth, was entirely ruined. Their wood
cuts were so warped with the intruding wa
ter as to be worthless, but their machinery
is yet good aud can be put in serviceable
shape at little expense. Their losses would
be met by tbe Incidental ones resulting
from a forced stoppage of their business.
It Is a bad time of tbe year for them to b e
THE LITHOGRAPHING ROOMS.
Above was tbe Shober ft Carqueville Litb
ograpblng company. Tbeir loss was a total
one. On tbe two floors they occupied were
stocks of paper, printing machinery, litho
graphic stones and other material used In
tbeir business, which aggregate in value
$250,000. In the midst of this costly fuel
tbe flames played. They enclroled witb
tbeir devouring arms presses and machin
ery. Paper, both blank and priuted,
were equally their object. For three hours
the heat of the fierce blaze warped and
twisted and scorched tbe valuable material
wblch filled tbe floors. Tbe result was a
ruin. Salt or sugar in water would not dis
appear more entirely than the stock of riho
Df r ft Carqueville in the flames tbat sur
rounded it. It was a total loss. They car
ried an iusurance of $190,000. .These were
direct results of tbe Are, but there are
many Incidental ones. Tho Montauk block,
boasted to be fire-proof, suffered damages
to tbe extent of $8,000. The Intense best

In proof of this is . tbe elaborate arrange

to obtain the earliest possible news of the

United Press Association, by the employ
ruent of special signalers and laying private
wire, was able to hand an account of the
execution to tbe direct United States Cable
Company a few seoonds after the drop had
actually fallen. The words were flashed to
to New York in less than a minute, and
long before ordinary newspapers In En

the execution bad taken place, Journals In
the United States belonging to ths United

cablegram bringing information of the fact.
Owing to difference of time between En
