A Two Hundred Thousand Dollar
Blase In M. Louis.
St. Louis, December 20. The large six
storr buildine. 319 and 321. on North
Third street, and having also a frontage
on Locust street in the shape of an "L"
wai totally destroyed by fire at one
o'clock this morning. The fire caught in
the basement and the fiames rushing up
the elevators soon spread throughout
the building and in less than an hour it
was a mass of ruins. The Guernsey
Scudder electric plant occupied the third
street basement, the Commercial Print
ing Company the first, second, third,
and fourth floors, and the two upper
stories were used by Dickerson & Hans,
the manufacturers. On Locust street sick
the first floor was occupied by Gaut
Bros,, of New York, dealers in book
binders stock, and the ucner stones by
the Commercial Printing Company and
F. M. Flamger, book binder. Over three
hundred people were employed in the
building, and had the fire occurred in
davtime there would aouDtiess nave
been a fearful loss of life.
The old Mechanics' Bank building, 317
Third street, adjoining on the south, was
crushed bv tailing wans ana neam
destroyed. This was occupied by Kohi
& Co.," bankers and brokers; Carwell &
Howe . insurance agents; (jerrettsei
Bowman & Co., and St. Louis Minim;
Two or three small buildings adjoining
on Locust street, were also crushed, pui
the losses at this point were immaterial
The total loss by fire is roughly estimated
at between $150,000 and $.'W,uuu, out
the individual losses are not yet ascer
tained. The use of the name of Burwell
Comstock & Co., in connection with tht
firr wan a mistake. Thev were in m

Aid for Mrs. Davis.
To the Confederate Veterans and other
Admirers of lefftrson Davis:
1 am in receipt of a letter from Col. W
J. Green, of Fayetteville, appointing me
a local agent with authority to solicit
subscnotions to the Davis Land funu
In hi-ief explanation Mr. Davis' planta
tion is mortgaged for $40,000, which
will seriouslv embarrass Mrs. Davis. It
is proposed to relieve this incumbrance
promptly by collections from old Confed
erate soldiers and their descendants and
other sympathizers with the great boutn
rrn 'eader. For each subscription o
$10 a certificate of one share of stock
will be issued, and will be valuable as a
memento of the affection of the subscriber,
nnH should, and doubtless will lie, treas
ured by his children. This can only be
done gracefully, if done at once, and
without solicitation; it should be the
voluntary effort of love. I hope there
fore that no farther notice will be needed
to enable me by January 1, to remit ten
dollars for each surviving Confederate
and every other man who has not yet
learned to be ashamed of the lost cause.
