Fanned by a high wind, a fire, which
broke out shortly before noon yester
day in a stable, was not checked until

it was held In check. Almost every
building of any consequence in that
section of the city was destroyed, in
cluding the nostofflce. the city hall.

Inflammatory Anti-American Circular
Spread About Manila.
Manila, June 23. An inflammatory
anti-American circular has ' been is
sued here anonymously and distrib
uted. It bears the cabalistic signs
of the old Katipunan society and , de
nounces the Americans, saying they
have brought tyranny instead of lib
erty and that their purpose is to rob
and enslave the Filipinos. It calls
them shameless, -dishonest, drunken
thieves, attacks the morality of Amer
ican women, and accuses the govern
ment of graft. - V.
Pending open revolution, it urges a
campaign involving the assassination
of the invading Americans, burning
their homes, killing their animals, and
concludes with the wish for "long life
to the Filipinos" , and "death to Hhe
It Is doubtful If the circular will
be productive of serious results.
Swallowed Teeth; Near Death
John A. White, formerly commercial in
structor in the high school, is in the
city, a shadow of his former robust
self. Two years ago he swallowed a
small plate nnd two teeth, and his
friends were much relieved when after
several days he appeared to have suf
fered no ill effects. Mr.- White pre
sumed the teeth were in his stomach,
and he took no immediate stps toward
medical relief, prefering to await de
velopments. Several months ago he
lost his voice, and doctors discovered,
by using the X-ray, that the teeth
were lodged in his acsophagus, just be
low the adam's apple. Mr. White was
confined in a hospital while efforls
were made to remove them. Three or
four days after they had been located
they dropped into the stomach and all
efforts '.o remove them have been un
availing. Mr. White left the hospital
May 7, weighing 129 pounds where he
formerly weighed 1G5. He has gained
fifteen pounds in six weeks and is
gradually recovering the use of his
voice. He will spend much time In
outdoor recreation, and when he has
recovered his strength will submit to
the knife to have the teeth removed
