Thursday Evening, July 18,1878 OLD FIDELITY. Chicago livening .Journal The old watch dog Fidelity," of the Fi delity Safe Depository, died of old age on Saturday night. His death deserves more than a passing notice. On the night of the great fire, October 9, 1871. "Old Fidelity," was at his poBt in the Fidelity Safe Deposi tory, and when the hurricane of lire swept over the city lie took refnge in an unoccupied vault in the basemenl and remained there until the morning of the 11th of October, whan the debris was cleared away and the faith ful old fellow was rescued. He. has every since been an object of interest, as the only living thing that passed throngh the great fire. There is mourning in the Fidelity to-day over the death of Fido." A fine oil paint ing of the dog, presented to Mr. Geo. \V. Fay, the manager, by Miss Owen, of Me llon ry hangs in the office of the depository. THE TURKISH WASTE. It is said that in less than a quarter of a century the Turks have borrowed $1,000, 000,000. Out of this sum about $4,000,000, have been spent in armaments, military and naval, and the balance has gone to enrich viziers, pashas, middlemen, financiers, com mission agents, and to maintain the luxury of liarems and roj al palaces. It is thought that the present movement among the delud ed bondholders of England and France will possibly result in combinations of speculators who will buy up the present scrip at little better comparatively than the price of waste paper, and then by much intriguing and patience they may secure some kind of com promise. It is within the bounds of reason to believe that such a combination will bend all their influence upon the raising of a new Turkish loan to pay a composition of some thing upon the old scrip.
