The smoldering fire at the Morris &

trouble Saturday evening and yester
day, and it was necessary for the lire

the fire is still burning in places. No
further trouble is expected, however.

The neighborhood of Sixteenth
street between Eleventh and Twelfth
avenues, was. alarmed last evening by
cries of "burglars," "police," and other
shouts coming from the front of one
of the residences in the block. Officer
Pottlger was nearby, and attracted by
the cries and the excitement made an
investigation, to find that the supposed
burglar was merely the hired girl re
turning home. She had been out later
than usual, and was quietly entering
the house by the rear door, In order
not to attract the attention of her mis
tress. Her caution gave the impres
sion to those at the front of the house
that a burglar was breaking in, and an
alarm was given at once.

In a ball like this there is little favor,
and the prettiest and smartest girls are
not much better off than their less at

are in splendid robes, the dancing con

The Vienna belle may not go to as
many balls, perhaps, as her English
sister, but she certainly dances a good
many more kilometers in the course of
her season. The Vienna balls begin,
as a rule, pretty sharply at 9, and.
with an hour or so for supper, the
waltzing goes on till 3. The most en
thusiastic will not go away much be

stay to the end, and when the lieuten

pause, is a very respectable athletic
performance, and many of the .ladies

'A-Morri. Chair of Stone.
Did the prehistoric dwellers upon
Long Island manufacture and uao
stone chairs, and especially stone Mor
ris chairs V Such is the problem E.
Reeve of Echo, near Port Jefferson,
X. Y., has set himself to solve, says the
New York Times. Mr. Reeve, while
digging in the earth near his home re
cently, uncovered a large stone chair,
fashioned in the form of a Morris chair.
He had it placed upon a stone sled and
dragged to the top of a high bluff just
west of his house, where he planted
it uihjii the ground. It commands a
splendid view of Port Jefferson har
bor far below. Mr. Reeve says that
some cushions are all that is needed
to make the chair as comfortable as
any lie ever occupied, or course tne
chair is not adjustable. The primitive
manufacturers had probably not dis
covered tLat wrinkle when the Reeve
chair was made.
ENTIRE PEACH OUTPUT-
Davenport Wholesale Fruit Dealers
Will Have Supply.
The wholesale fruit dealers of Dav
enport have secured the entire output
of the famous Elberta peach orchards
of Bangor, Mich., and vicinity for the
season. Heretofore, fruit houses in
the tri-cities have been unable to se
cure much of this fruit for the reasoiv
that it was gobbled by the Chicago
houses. This year the local firms laid
their plan3 early and secured the or
chards. This means that the tri-cities
ind vicinity will have the best peaches
that grow; and at reasonable prices.
The fruit is now being picked, and one
carload arrived in Davenport today.

The Mnalc Never Stops, and People
Walts All the Time.
When the faschiug is in full and
orthodox swing in Vieuna, balls take
place every evening in the dozen or
so of big and small halls available for
societies and charities. The favorite
hall is the Sofensal, which is a swim
ming bath, in summer. For the oc
casion it is lloored with parquet and
decked with palms.
There are always two when not
three bands, and as soon as one leaves
off the other takes up the waltz. If It
does not, the public wants to kuow the
reason why and Immediately begins
to demonstrate with hand and voice.
The chaperons sit around in solemn
state, and the men congregate in the
middle of the floor, 'forming what is
technically called the herreu Insel, or
men's Island. From this position of
vantage they swoop down on any part
