Knoxvillk, April 8. The most
disiistrous conflagration that ever
occurred In Knoxville broke out this
morning shortly after 3 o'clock in
the McNulty block, on day street.
The fire started in the store-room of
the McNulty Grocery Company,
which, with Hotel Knox, takes up
the McNulty block. The fire spread
with liirhtiiintr-like rapidity. In a
few moments the entire JNlcNulty
block was ablaze. It was soon seen
that it was doomed.
In tlio Hotel Knox were at least
fifty guest and regular boarders.
The efforts of the fire department
were first directed to the rescuing of
the people in the hotel, all of whom
were gotten out safely.
After it was thought that every
one had been rescued the fight be
gan; the firemen were badly handi
capped, the fire having gained great
headway. The entire McNulty
building was a mass of flames with
in less than thirty minutes. The
flames then ate their way steadily
through the big Briscoe building.
In a short time the fire was in all
the floors. The immense stock of
dry goods added much to the flames
and sent them high towards the
heavens. In succession, the build

No theory as to the oriirin of the
fire has been advanced.

The Popular Enthetlcs nf Color.
While blue is pre-eminently and over
whelmingly the masculine favorite, it
i3 by no means so general a feminine
favorite. The favorite woman's color,
standing at tho head of the female list,
is red. Roughly speaking, of every 80
masculine votes 10 would bo for blue
and 3 for red, while of every 80 femi
nine votes 4 would be for bluo and 5 for
red. lied and bluo are thus much more
nearly equally popular among women
than amoug men. Other relatively
marked maxculino preferences are for
the colors related to bluo (bluo violet
and violet), and other feminine prefer
ences are for lighter red (or pink) and, to
a less extent, for green and yellow.
Further, men confine their selections to
relatively fewer colors than do women,
and, finally, while all men aud women
alike are much moro apt to choose a
normal than a transitional color Rnd a
darker than a lighter shade, yet the tend
ency to do so (about the same in the
former direction) is markedly different
in the latter respect. Of 12 men 10 would
chooso among the darker colors and only
2 among the lighter for the most pleas
ing color, while of 12 women 7 would
chooso among the darker and S among
the lighter shades. Professor Jaarro
