Shortly after S o'clock yesterday an
alarm from box ih in Davenport
called the department in a hurry to
the gas works then. Companies 1,

promptly. Two lir.es of hose were
laid and Hit; blaze in the gas works
was speedily demolished. There are
few places where a lire could do more
damage, and crowds of citizens tilled

employed in the generating room no
ticed that one of t lit generators was
unduly heated and n a minute the

a stream was turned on by the men
in the works at one-;, so "that when
the regular firemen came, there was
but little for them to do. None of
the machinery was damaged. The

One of the most interesting studies in
human nature about the city is the man
who lives in hotels. I do not mean the
commercial traveler or the man who ia
engaged in business of any kind, but the
man who has nothing to do but to look
around him and enjoy himself. He may
actually enjoy himself, too, for all I
know. I hope he does. He is interest
ing as an illustration of what some men
The fashionable hotels of New York
and unfashionable hotels for that mat
ter are the shelter of many men who
are not in business other than the busi
ness of looking pretty and observing the
rest of the world move, I do not say
they are the homes of rach men they
merely shelter and feed them.
In many instances this life is that of a
hermit. Possibly a man accustomed to
the wild, hilarious career offered by a
couatry hotel may cavil at the expres
sion in this connection, but it is because
such a man does not understand city
ways. A year or two ago a well to do gen
tleman died in a New York hotel. He
had lived in the hostelry for years, and
yet not a soul if I may use the word
soul in speaking of a hotel corporation
knew him personally or aything about
him beyond the fact that he paid his bills
promptly and regularly. He chose to
make no acquaintances and was satis
fied to appear to the hotel managers as
"No. 61, K.," or by whatever number his
room was designated. The hotel man
agement liad changed several times, but
he lived on there, a calm, unruffled ex
istence. As a guest such a man is a jewel, and
s may reasonably be supposed he was
noi liKeiy to be Harassed by unnecessary
attentions. When he died and it was
found that he was a gentleman of inde
pendent fortune the newspapers, of
course, making the discovery some peo
ple, marveled for a day or two and then
forgot him. I recall the incident now
only to illustrate that in a great city like
this what appears to 1x3 the most public
life may Ik? in reality the most exclusive.
There are plenty of men living hermit
lives in New York hotels as much. 6oas
if they occupied a poor hovel in the soli
tary fastnesses of the wilderness.
I know men who reside at swell hotels
who do not seek to avoid their fellows,
but who might as well Ve confined in
the penitentiary or be dead, so far as
their usefulness to society is concerned.
They remind me of convicts so appar
ently listless, aimless and inert their ex
istence. They ear, drink and sleep.
Life holds no more inviting cup for them !
than that offered by the hotel corridor.
They have exhausted what men call
pleasure or are beyond the age of phys
ical enjoyment, with no reserve capacity
for mental pleasure. To a man of some
temperaments such a life would be a liv- I
ing death. New York Cor. Pittsburg I
