destructive lire occurred this morning'
on Grove Avenue, resulting In the j
partial destruction of tho IV G. Seward ]
Luggage Company's plant. Tho co'm
pa,ny Is a comparatively new concern
engaged in the manufacture of travol
lng bags, valises, etc., of the bent
quality. The manufacturing was done
Jn a brick building fronting on Grove
Avenue, originally known as Graco
ijpl??Copal Church, the machinery being
all now and modern. In the rear of
this building were two large frame
structures, used mainly for storage
purposes, and In which were stored a
large stock of finished goods and a
quantity of raw material. The brick
building was not seriously damaged,
but the machinery and goods in it were
ruined by water and smoke. The tiro
5a- supposed to have caught from
sparks from a shifting engine passing
in the rear, as the roof of one of the
sheds was first seen ablaze. The frame
structures and their contents were en
tirely destroyed, but little of the manu
J'acturod goods being saved. The build
ings were all owned by M. M. Booth,
who had an Insurance of only $2,000
ou them. In tlie rear part of the lot
wore some small frame' buildings be-.
longing to Mr. Booth, In which was
stored some machinery formerly used
in a hat manufactory. On this mn
ohlnery there was no insurance. An
automobile, owned by W. F. Llmburgcr,
was also burned. Tho Seward Lug
gago Company has the following- In
flurance on their property; On stock,
J35.000; on machinery, fC.,000; miscel
laneous, 92,000. Tho Tiro was very
threatening at one time, but the do
. partmcnt got It under control, and

The uso of knockerH on the doors or

genoral as the utilization of this old

dences constructed along the lines of
Colonial architecture, but It Is sutt
gostlve of a courtesy th**t Is frequently
neglected. even In the well ordered i

of the home Is often dissipated by mem
bers of the family, and their quests, I
who enter doorways, even of bedrooms,
with a freedom that Is not exhibited at

' There is never an excuse for tho in

before entering is showing .1 delicate
attention and regard which happily ce

The same principle applies to each

Garrison's letter follows:
"My Dear General,?I deslro to ex
press to you tho great appreciation
that I liavo of tho excellent Bervlco
rendered by you and tho inon under
you while at Vera Cruz.
"In many wuy? tho sltuutlon there
was as dlf!l<? It, If not more so, us ac
tual warfare. Tho proper performanco
of tho duty called for self-restraint,
judgment, coolness and discipline In
; tho very highest degree. The fact that
I during all the months that you occu
I pled Vera Cruz, there was not ono tin
| toward Incident, Is of grout signifi
cance. Any laxncss of discipline or
I any careless bundling of the situation
i might have precipitated consciences
: of a most disastrous charactor. Tho
'skill and ability of tho ofTlcers and tho
discipline and exemplary conduct of
the troops, not only provented any un?
toward Incident, but reflected the
greatest credit upon themselves and
the country which they represented.
"1 desire to convoy to you and tha
officers and men of your command my
warmest thanks and BlncercBt appre
