MILITIAMEN GUARD PROPERTY Engines Sent From Buffalo and Syra cuse Arrive Too Late to Be of Any Service. ROCHESTER, N. Y., April 14.-Roches ter was visited yesterday by the worst conflagration it has seen since the retail district of Main street east was swept by flames in 1003. Hundreds of homeless families are camping: out in the streets. Thieving has set in and Mayor Edgerton called out the National Guard to patrol the devastated district. Estimates of the loss put It at $.100,000. Temple Berith Kodesh, one of the most handsome churches in Rochester, valued at 100.000, is a total loss. The Palmer building Is a smoldering ruin and the loss to owners and tenants Is about $300,000, and the First Reformed Church, a small structure, lies in ruins, with a loss of 95.000. Other buildings destroyed were the Ward apartments on Grove street, the First German Lutheran Zion Church, and fifty houses In the Jewish settlement. St. Peter's Presbyterian Church was badly damaged, as were half a hundred small houses. There was loss also in the Palmer lumber yards and to several small firms on Main street east, adjoin ing the main Palmer building. Started by Defective Wires. Defective wires attached to an electric motor in a vacant room in the Palmer building at Main street east and ? Grove street are said to have caused the fire. On the second floor of the#Palmer build ing was the Electro-Surgical Instrument Company. Randall, Green & Baker, cravat manufacturers, had one-half of the third floor, and the other half was va cant. On the. top floor Thiem & Erch mann, die manufacturers, had rooms. The cravat company and instrument company employed-a. large number of girls. Their escape was Shut off on the stairways, and the elevator shaft was a raging furnace. The girls came down the flre escapes in good order and passed on to safety. By the time flre hose had been laid the flames had jumped across the street and on to the roof of St. Peter's Presby terian Church. At the same time flre appeared in the belfry of Berith Kodesh Temple, occupying the opposite corner. Firemen Flee for Lives. One entire flre company came close*to being annihilated. A long ladder against the temple had caught flre. and eight or ten men started to pull It away. A -shout from a bystander caused the workers to take to their heels. > Instantly' the great south stone wall of the Palmer building crashed Into the street. Then the tower of the temple rocked and fell, crushing under Its weight a house adjoining. The firemen had barely time to reach a place of safety. Directly back of the Pafmer building, and In the path of the flames, is Grove place. The heat was so Intense that the firemen -were driven back from this posi tion, and the Ward apartments, valued at $100,000, and owned by Alderman Frank A. Ward and H. 1* Ward, took fire and *burned rapidly... - . Across the street the flames swept, but here the firemen made a stand and saved the houses. Sweeping down Grove street from the temple, the flames attacked the First German Lutheran Zlon Church, and it was a question for two hours whether this-building could be saved. While the firemen were busy there the flre rushed to .street, and from . Grove street northward damaged every house for two-blocks on StHlsem-street. The fires broke out so frequently In the northeasterp part of the city that companies could not be dispatched to all of them. Volunteer brigades were form ed and helped In holding down the fire loss. Fanned, by a gale blowing twenty-six miles an hour, aparks from the Palmer i building were carried to the First Re formed Church of America, a frame structure, at Ogden and Harrison streets a mile distant. This flre destroyed the church, then leaped the elevated tracks of the New York Central and swept I northward through the small frame dwelling houses In the Jewish settle ment. , - - ?In. the absence of definite information i as to the serioushess of the blaze and the urgency of the flre In the downtown thoroughfares, only one company was dispatched to the new scene of trouble. , Single-handed It was unable to cope with the blase, which had gained, remarkable headway before the firemen arrived. Other independent fires also were start ed by flying cinders.. Ask Aid of Other Cities. Chatham, Kelly and. Nassau streets and Hudson avenue were dotted with j flames. When the seriousness of this situation waf realized Fire Chief Little held a conference with members of the board of flre underwriters, at which It was decided to appeal to Buffalo and Syracuse for aid. Residents of this section were terror stricken. Many ran about aimlessly., 8till others seised armfuls of goods from the houses and rushed with them into the streets or Into other houses, where advancing flre later drove them i out. Mary Kirschnamsky. living on Kelly street, went violently insane and was taken away in an ambulance. A man in , jumping from the second story of one of the houses cut the arteries of his right leg. The total number of houses burned Is. about fifty. In addition to which several times as many more have been dam ami. Fire companies from Buffalo and Syra cuse arrived later in the afternoon, but were iu>t needed. They remained here, however, on reserve. TAKEN SAFE TO PORT. 1 * ? Tl^e Schooner A. and' Iff. Carlisle Towed to Delaware Breakwater. The schooner A. and M. Carlisle! which was reported in distress off the North Carolina coast with spars missing, has ?been-taken into the-Delaware breakwater In safety* and -will\be repaired there. The t?%pelr Was;on -her way from Norfolk to Chartaftt*^ with coal aboard, and wsa ?*ygfiSt.i? a gale. Sails were torn and the main mast was carried away. At first Capt. Lowe refused- offers of. assistance, bat later a steamer took the ..vessel In tow, but'as the lines parted it,was forced to give up the task. The revenue cutter Seminole, from Wilmington, N. C., spent several ? days In search of the vessel, but without success, but as the disabled craft was making her way to the Delaware a tug came-along, took the vessel in tow and into port. The four-masted schooner Gardner C. Deerlng. which was in collision with the schooner Horatio In the Delaware, is well known at this port, having been here numbers of times with ice from Maine as her cargo. The Deerlng was but little injured, but the Horatio was badly damaged in the collision. On the charge of attempted bur glary. Rev. Frank Young, colored pastor of the Fairfield A. M. JC. Church, was sentenced to two months In jail at An napolis by Justice Potee at Brooklyn. Anne Arundel county. Young was ar rested after an eAcitlng chase.

"Montmorency avenue" for 13th .street extended and "Vere de Vere avenue" for 14th street extended. Such changes are suggested as. logical by William Henry Dennis, attorney at 416 6th street. If 16th street extended is to be called "Avenue of the Presidents." He has written a letter to the Commis sioners protesting' against the proposed change of name of 16th street extended. "As a resident and property-owner In the District of Columbia," he says, "I desire to enter an earnest protest against the project, so much mentioned In the daily newspapers, of dubbing l^th street north of Florida avenue as the "Avenue of the Presidents" or by any other fancy or 'highfalutin' name whatsoever. It is not an 'avenue,' but plain 16th street, and to call it an avenue is to cause con fusion and Inconsistency in the names on the plan of the city and Dis trict. Unfair to Others. "Furthermore, it would be entirely un fair to the owners of property on 11th street, 13th street, 14th street and other streets which extend north of Florida avenue and are building up and develop ing, to single out 16th street to be dis tinguished by some catchy or grand soundlng name, even though It is re quested by wealthy and influential people With equal right, those interested in 13th street extended might demand to.have it called 'Montmorency avenue" and those on 14th street to have it called 'Vere de Vere avenue," or something of that sort, and so on Indefinitely.. "The reason alleged for changing' the name of 16th street, that it will increase the value of the land* and 'attract fash ionable residents,' shows that an advan tage Is sought over equally flue numerical streets that extend north of Florida ave nue. Where Reform -Is Needed. "Fifth avenue In New York .city is just as fashionable under a plain numerical designation as it would be under any fancy name. A similar statement might be.made about 'K' street In Washington. It is a misfortune that part of 7th street northwest has been misnamed as an 'ave nue' and the mischief ought lo be undone as soon as possible, instead of being du really important reform .that is needed is to give sensible names to our streets which now hav?* only letters- and so end the nee3 of writing 'You street and 'Eye* street an J the struggle to dis tinguish 'M* street and *N' street on the telephone." ? ? ^??*1 HEAVY RECEIPTS OF HERRING.

Copyrlfbt, IMS, kjr Iram Btoktr. at ttittawi BalL All rights CHAPTER X?Continued. The arrival of Col. Ogilvie's letter, sent on to him from London, made in a way a new troable for him; for, while he was de lighted to get so friendly an overture, It was, he saw. but another difficulty ahead of him. He must either reply in his false name, which was now hateful to him; or he must leave the letter, for the. present, unanswered. This latter alternative would be dangerous with a man so sensi tive and so punctilious; but. all told, it was the lesser evil. He had had oppor tunity to make up his mind on the sub ject before the letter came, for Aunt Judy had said in her last letter that Col.' Ogllvie had spoken about writing to him before they should arrive in London. Still It was a sore trial to him to be so discour teous, with the added chagrin that he might?probably would?stand in his way with the one man in the world whom he wished to propitiate. As he did not know anything about the history of Col. Ogilvie's family he went to the peerage books and made lists of the bearers of that name In its different spellings; and then aa he decided to go to many of the-plaees named, he made runs Into Perthshire and Forfar. He came to the conclusion that he must have misun derstood Col. Ogilvie in alluding to the "border counties." He laid up, however, a good deal of local information which might be pleasing to his prospective father-in-law. One morning he had a letter which quite fluttered him. It was from Aunt Judy telling him that Col. Ogilvie had announc ed his intention of starting on the then coming Thursday for the north, and that he had given as the direction of his let ters till further notice.the "Inn of Greet ing," Ambleside. The unqualified pleas ure which received from this news was neutralized by the postscript: "By the way?this of course in your private ear. now and hereafter?Col. Ogilvie is vastly disappointed that you have not been to see him in London, and that you have not even replied to his let ter. 8urely there must be some mistake about this. I sincerely hope so. for he looks on any breach of courtesy or any defect in It as an unpardonable sin. I know from the fact of his mentioning it to his womenkind that be had taken It to heart. Do. do my dear friend, who have done so much for us and whose friendship we wish to hold, repair this without delay. He Is an old. man and may possibly expect more from a-younger man than from one of his own standing. I am sure that if - there has been any omission there is on your part a good reason for it. But do not lose any time. If you wish to, please us all?and I am sure you do?you would do well to go up to Ambleside?if you have not seen him already?and call on him there. And do like a dear man drop me a line at once to say you have received this and telling me what you intend to do." He sat for a while quite still, putting his thoughts in order. It was now Mon day, so that Col. Ogilvie would have been already some days at Ambleside. He took It for granted that Joy was with him. but he could not help a qualm of doubt about even that. Aunt Judy had not mention ed her in the matter. The only possible allusion was in the underlining of the word "all." Otherwise the letter was too direct and too serious for any cryptic meaning. He came to the conclusion that his best plan would be to go at once to some place on Windermere and from there go quietly to Ambleside and find out for him self how things lay. The best place for him to stay at would, for his purposes, be Bowness. There he would leave hie car with the chauffeur and drive in a car riage to. Ambleside. When there he would contrive to meet if possible Joy alone. He would surely be able to form from her attitude some opinion of her disposition toward him. If he were satis fled as to this he would at once go to her father, tell him the whole story, and place himself in Ms h?nds. But then he thought that if he were so near, his name might become known to Col. Ogilvie; that infernal alias seemed to be always standing in his way! He was so obsessed by the subject that at times he quite overlooked the fact that neither the colonel nor any of his family knew anything whatever of the matter. It took him an hour's hard thought before this idea presented itself to Jilm. It took a weight off his mind. If by any chance Col. Ogilvie should hear that an in dividual called Lord Athlyne was in the neighborhood it would mean nothing to him. Nothing except the proximity of one more of that "bloated aristocracy," which one class of Americans run down? and* another run after. He was then up in Ross. As he did not wish to "rush" matters he decided to start next day. When that time came he had fully made up his plan of action. As the Ogilvies were at Ambleside he would go to Bewness. As there was a service of public coaches he could go between the places mentioned?without even the iso lation of the carriage for his sole use. He would go quietly to the Inn of Greeting and learn what he could about their movements. The rest must depend on circumstances. But there must be no hurry; the matter was too serious now and the issue: too important to take any i risk. But when he should have seen Joy and knew, or believed, or understood. ? ?' ? Then he would lose not a mo ment in seeing her father. But he might not get a chance of seeing him alone and under circumstances favorable to his pur pose. He must be ready- All at once an idea struck him. All these weeks Athlyne had now and again had a vague feeling of uneasiness which he could not understand; a sort of feeling that he would some time wake and wonder what he had. been fretting and fuming about. Why could he not have written to Col. Ogilvie at any time? Even before he had left New York, or while he had been, on board ship, or while the American family had been in Italy, or even when the colonel had been in London? Why not now? After all, there was nothing in any way wrong; nothing to be ashamed of. He was of good social position; at least as good as Joy's father was. He was himself rich and wanted no fortune with his wife. He had won certain honors?a man to whose name had been suffixed V. C. and D.S.O. must be considered personally adequate for ordinary purposes. And so on. Vanity and self-interest, in addition to the work ing of the higher qualities, supplied many good reasons. And yet! ? ? ? He was always being brought up against one of two things: Col. Ogilvie'8 peculiar views and charac ter, or his own position toward him with regard to the alias. He could always And in either of these something which might cause pain or trouble to Joy. Moreover, there was another matter which was a powerful factor in his conclusions, al though it was one which he did not an alyse or even realise. It was one that worked unconsciously; a disposition rather than an activity; a tendency rather than a thought. Lord Athlyne was Scotch and Irish; a Celt of Celts on his mother's side. He had ail that underlying desire of the unknown which creates sentiment, and which is so pronounced a part of the Cel tic character. This It is whence comes that clinging to the place of birth which has made the peassntry of the Green Isle for seven hundred years fight all opposing forces, from hunger to bayonets, to hold possession of their own. This it Is which animated a race, century after century, to suffer and endure from their conquerors of the more prosaic race all sorts of pain and want, and for reasons. not under standable by others. Those who have lived among those Celts of the outlying fringes, j among whom racial tendencies rematn'un-] altered by changing circumstances, ana by whom traditions are preserved not by historical purposes but by the exercises of faith, know that there Is a something wMch has a name but no external bounds or limitations, no quick principle, no set tled purpose. Something which to an alien,. can only be described by negatives; Jf any Idea can at all be arrived at by such?any Idea, however rudimentary, phantasmal or vague?it can only be acquired at all by a process of exclusion. The name is "The Gloom": the rest Is a birthright. Those who can understand It need no telling or explaining; others can no more understand it than those born without eves can see. It is a quality opposed to no other; it can exist with any. It can co-exist with fight ing, with song, with commerce. It makes no change in other powers or qualities of the children of Adam; Those who pos sess It can be good or bad. clever or silly, heroic or mean. It can add force to Im agination. understand nature, give quiet delight or spiritual pain. And the bulk of those who have it do not think of It or even know it; or. If they do, hardly ever speak of It. Athlyne had his full share of It. Being young and strong and of a class In life which seldom lacks amusement, he had not been given to self-analysis. . But. all the same, though he did not think of it, the force was there. In his present emo tional crisis It brought the lover in him up ! to the Celtic Ideal?an Ideal so strangely saturated with love that his whole being, his alms and ambitions, hi? hopes and fears, his pleasures and pains yielded place to it and for the time became merged In It. To him the whole world seemed to revolve round Joy as a pivotal poiiit. Nothing could be of any use or In terest which did not have touch of her or lead to her. So. he wanted to know be yond the mere measure of Intellectual be lief If Joy loved him or was on .the way to doing so. When he was satisfied as to this he would be free to act; but not be fore. .. * .. On the Journey he had allowed the chauffeur to drive, as he wanted to think over the matter without fear of Interrup tion. He hod sat In the tonneau and made from time to time notes In his pocket book. He had now made up his mind that he would write a letter to Col. OgHvle telling him the whole circumstances. This he would keep In his pocket so that.at the first moment when he was satisfied as to Joy's views he could post it, in case he could not have the opportunity of a per sonal explanation. After dinner the sec ond night of the Journey and then In his bedroom he sat up writing the letter and then copying It out on his own note PaP?^ of which he had for the purpose brought a supply with him. When It was com pleted It left nothing that he could think of open to doubt. \*hen he had got this off his mind sleep came to him. Next day he took the wheel himself, and that day when there was fitting op Dortunfty the car hummed along: merrily it top speed. Before sunset they had ar rived at Bowness. There he left the car In charge of the chauffeur, on whom he again impressed the necessity for absolute silence. The man was naturally discreet, and he saw that he was In a good situa tion. Athlyne was satisfied on leavtng him that his orders* would be thoroughly C*n\he forenoon of the next day he too}1 the steamer which plies a,?"* and In due course landed at Ambleside. His heart beat quickly now hl? ' searched keenly all around him as he moved. He would not miss a chance ol seeing Joy. I CHAPTER XL The Beautiful Twilight. The first couple of days at Ambleside were a delight to Joy. . In the change from the roar and ceaseless whirl of London was such a sense of peace that It Influenced even the pain of her heart-hunger. Here in this lovely place, where despite the life and move ment of the little town nature seemed to reign, was something to calm nerves overstrung with waiting and appre hension. It was a relief to her at first, a pleasure later, to walk about the pleasant roads with her father; to take long drives beneath shady trees or up on the hillside where the lake lay below like a panorama; to sit on the steamer's deck and drift along the beautiful lake. Her father was now and again Im patient, not with her. but because of the non-arrival of the motor which ha had ordered In London. It had not been quite ready when they left. aQd so It Was arrangedthat it should f?M low them. He wanted to have it m> p6 session so that they could fly All over the region; the American -In him was clamorous for movement, for ?pe?*l and progress! He kept up an'endless telegraphing with the motor people .in London, and when at last they.VwI'ed that the car was nearly ready he got a map and traced out the. route. TSach day he marked out a spare that ho thought it ought to have covered, crediting It for every hour of day light with top speed. After all, no mat ter. what our ages may be. we are b*it children and the new toy but renews the old want and the old impatiencc: bringing in turn the old disillusion ment and the old empty-hearted dis content. And the new toy may be of any shape, even that of a motor car? or a beating human heart. Partly out of affection for her fa ther, and so from sympathy with him, and partly aa a relief to herself. J<?y looked eagerly for the coming of the car. She used to go with him to the post office when he was sending his telegrams. Indeed, she never left him; and be sure he was glad of her com panionship. Now and again would come over her an overwhelming wave of disappointment?grief?regret?she knew not what?when she thought of the friendship so romantically begun but failing so soon. The letters from Aunt Judy used to worry and even hu miliate her. For Judy could not under stand why there was no meeting: ati<l her questions, made altogether for the girl's happiness, but made in the help lessness of complete ignorance, gave her niece new concern. She had to give reasons. Invent excuses. This in it self. for she was defending the man. only added fuel to her own Has&lon. Joy's love was ripening very fast: all her nature was yielding to It. Each day seemed to make her a trlffe thin ner. Her eyes seemed to grow bigger and at times to glow like - lamp.-.

He thought she was looking well; and as she was hearty and always, while with him. in good spirits and vivacious, and even eager in her movements, he was more than satisfied. One morning as she was sitting alone olose to the window, presumably read ing. for she had a book in her lap. she caught sight with the tall of her eye of a figure that she knew. There was no mistaking on her part that tall, up right man with the springy step: the image was too deeply burned Into her heart for that. For a- fraction of a second her heart stood still; and then the wave of feeling went over her. Instinctively she drew back and kept her head low so thar* only her eyes were over the line of the window sill. She did not wish to be recognised? all at once.. With the realisation of her woman's wishes came all the In stinctive exercise of her woman'* wiles. He was walking so slowly that she had time to observe him fully, to feast her eyes on him. He was look ing up at the hotel, not eagerly blia thought, but expectantly. This, though it did " not chill her. somehow put her on her guard. She slipped behind the window curtain and peeped cautiously. As he came closer to the hotel he went still more slowly. - He. did not come to the door, as she had expected, but moved along the street.
