Hmall Fire la the Moat Yard.
A fire alarm at 10:40 o'clock this morn
ing called the department to Kahlke's
boat yards in the lower end of the city
where a fire had been discovert d on the
steamer Inverness which has been winter
ing in the harbor there. Some workmen
in the yards discovered smoke coming
from the cabin of the boat and a hasty
investigation disclosed the fact that the
whole cabin was so full of smoke that tbe
fire could not be located. An alarm was
turned in for the department, but in the
meantime a hole was cut through the
rool into the cilice where the fire was
supposed to be, which supposition proved
correct. A few pails of water quenched
the fiimes and the damage will be very
slight. Tbe cause of the fire was un
doubtedly spontaneous combustion
caused by some cotton waste which had
been used for cleaning lamps being left
in the clerk's desk last fall. The boat
formerly bolonged to " McDonald

Few people have snffered more severely

well known grocer of Staunton, Va. He says
Before 1878 I was In excellent health, weigh

developed into acute dyspepsia, and soon I
was reduced to 162 pounds, suffering burning
sensations in the stomach,
palpitation of the heart,
nausea, and Indigestion.
could not sleep, tost all
heart in my work, had fits of melancholia, aud
for days at a time I would have welcomed
death. I became morose, sullen and irritable,
and for eight years life was a burden. 1 tried
many physicians and many remedies. One day
a workman employed by me suggested that
sia. I did so, and before taking the whole of
a bottle I began to feel like a new man. The
terrible pains to which I had been subjected,
ceased, the palpitation of the heart subsided,
my stomach became easier, nausea disap
peared, and my entire system began to
tone up. With returning
strength came activity of
mind and body. Before
the fifth bottle was taken
I had regained my former weight and natural
condition. I am today well and I ascribe H
to taking Hood's Sarsaparilla."
