the captain not if he knows it.
The painfnl anxiety the Union,
inspired very evidently by McCono

Koehler feels fbes days is truly re

A Famous Fire Rescue.
In the forenoon ,oT Jan. 31, 1882, the
old building at Park row and Beekman
rtreet caught fire. The 6-story building
had only ona stairway and was filled
with people, The building being old
and dry, the -flame spread rapidly, and
many people . found, a temble aeatn.
Just as it seemed that no human being
could escape death three men 'were seen
in an upper window. The firemen
quickly brought ladders, but the longest
reached only half the distance. In the
crowd a colored bootblack, Charles
"Wright, saw that fastened to the roof of
the building, just above the window
where the men were, was a telegraph
wire, and that this wire ran across the
street to the top of a telegraph pole in
Gry Hall park.
He saw that if the wire was cut in the
park it would fall right across the win
dow, 60 that the men could descend by
it. In an instant he seized a fireman's
wrench that lay near by, ran across the
Street and began to climb the tn, smooth
telegraph pole. It was not easy in the
wind and enow, but by hard climbing
"Wright soon reached the crossbars.
Quickly he twisted the wire rope oil.
Down it fell, right -across the window!
The crowd shouted for joy as one after
another the three men came down in
safety. For a moment only the boy was
forgotten. It was not long before every
one had heard of Charles Wright, the

brothers, one a tine manly fellow,
Victor, and officer in the Bourbon ar

murderous villain. The characters
are strongly drawn and at the hands
of Mantell they create an impression
which is lasting. The week following
the Boston engagement, the company
appeared at Lowell. andhere is where
the joke comes in. Two young Irish
fellows passing the opera house
chanced to glance at the show bills
posted at the door. Hello," said
one of them, "that Mantell is here
tonight: I'm going in to see him.
Come on, I saw him last w eek in Bos

The Incubation of Crinoline.
If there is one human being that I de
spise more than another, it is a man mil

and my ideas in regard to it are some

raising an outcry against crinolines !
will venture to explain their incubation
They were due to the desire in an ab
normal fit of common sense of womei
to have a rational costume.
Either the queen or one of the prince6se
wore, or was said to wear, at Balmoral
thick boots coming high up the leg. AT
loyal women insisted upon following
this example and wearing "Balmora
boots. The ladies had no objection t
show these boots, and, still being undei
the influence of common sense, objected
to their dresses trailing on the grounc
when they were out walking. The nexi
step was to have a scarlet petticoat ovei
the flannel and other underclothes.
This scarlet petticoat came about hah
way down the calf, and over it was worr
a skirt which fell to the feet when in
doors, but which when out walking wai
drawn up by a cord in festoons, coming
a little above the scarlet petticoat. T
this costume were added stockings oi
some bright color and a blouse witl
wide sleeves and a waistband, with ovei
it a zouave sort of jacket. What I con
tend is that the crinoline was not, unt
exaggeration set in, a cage, but merelj
one detail in a pretty and practical cos

W. A. Ehleb has declined to accept
the republican nomination for alder
man iu the Fourth ward, and Boss
Collins has- decided upon Charles
Fiebig for the vacaney on the ticket.
He has called a caucus for tomorrow
evening to approve of the choice.
Mr. Ehleb was regarded by the re
publicans as the strongest candidate
they had this year; in fact the only
one who would stand any kind of
show against Maucker, and conse
quently there is much weeping in the
republican camp over his declina
tion, practically conceding, as it
does, the election of Mr. Maucker.
