Thursday, June 13, 1878. Never Say Die. The first issue of the Detroit Free Press after the destruction of i** office by fire contained the following THE LRIOIIT SIDE. It is a poof one-horse conflagration which has no bright side, and it must be a dull newspaper staff that couldn't •ee beyond the roaring flarues which were burning tlftem out of old familiar nooks and cotner§. The members of the staff were mostly down long before the flames had lost their heat. Not one of them lost his grip for a moment. While the flames crackled one reporter was hurrying to give orders for chairs and tables, another was laying in a stock of pencils, and the third was with the firemen in the fourth story to get all the "item" possible. ALL HE HAD. Raid one citizen as he reached out the hand of sympathy: "All I've got in this world is a dog and a garden rake, but you can have the use of both for the next six months —yes, and I'll borrow a pick-ax for you beeides!" THE "STUCK up" HOY. A well dressed lad of ten was great ly excited as be stood on the fourth curb stone and watched the flames poor out of the windows. A bootblack, splashed and grimy, slid up to him • and gruffly called out: "You needn't put ou so much airs over this lire —'taint none o' yours'" "But my father was in that office only Saturday night," replied the tirat. "Was, eh? Well, that's nothing my father beat the paper out of nix months' subscription! Go 'long with your crowing.' IKS PROPHECY. The crowd was singular in one re spect, not a man turned to bis neigh bor and said that be bad expected the calamity for nearly a year past, and that he had lost many sleepless nights in consequence. Therefore it was a sudden blow when a wild-eyed man drew himself up and called out: "Thirty-four yetrs last night I prophesied "Go 'long,— put bim out—throw him mto the river!" crie.l a hundred voice* at once. "Thirty-four yean ago last night I prophesied—' began the man agaiii, when be was hustled till out of breath. He had pluck and persevered, how ever, and when a lull came he con tinued; "Thirty-four years ago last night I prophesied that—" Kach oue in the crowd WUH looking at him. " —that there would bo a general Ku jopean war," finished the man, as he stepped down and made for the alley. A HAPPY THOUGHT. He continued on the staff and asked about loss and increase and so no, and sorrowfully remarked: "Well, I'm awfully sorry—awful •orry." He looked up at the blackened win dows, and through tho basement, filled with debris, and suddenly caught a bright idea. Rubbing his hands to gether be said, "Hut you'll have heaps and heaps of relics and souvenirs to bang up in a new office, won't you^" MISCELLANEOUS. C- L. MITCHELL.
