Furniture and supplies for Uncle | Sum's new war vessels cost a mint of ' money, says llene Bache. To lit out ! one of these ships for a cruise is a big ger jol> than equipping a tirst-class hotel. Here is a floating fortress, as long as two city blocks, with all mod ern conveniences and complete restau rant facilities, lighted thioughout by electricity—a gigantic lighting ma chine and military barracks combined. Her steel walls, bristling with guns, shelter a small army of men. The New York, for example, has a crew numbering besides forty marines and forty-live ollicers. To feed them all for a twelvemonth, at the Govern inenl's rate of allowance, costs ftiO, ouo. On going into commission such a ship must be furnished throughout from the kitchen, which is as com plete as that of a great city hostelry, to the captain's cabin. She carries large stocks of stationery, hardware and apothecaries' goods, and is pro vided with tools for all sort of trades. Everything conceivable that may be needed for purposes of war and peace is supplied, because on the high seas no shops or factories are accessible. Usually the vessel is provisioned for only three months, because there is no room to stow more. Every man in the navy, from the last boy shipped up to the admiral' lias an allowance of thirty cents a day for rations, which he may draw either in food or in money. The paymaster of the ship has charge of all the pro visions, which are dealt out by hie "yeoman," who is in turn assisted by the Jack o' Dust. The person last named attends to opening the barrels Hiid packages. Coll'ee and sugar arc served out once in ten days, Hour every four days and meats daily. While in port fresh provisions are furnished, each man receiving one puund of fresh bread, one and one quarter pounds of fresh meat and one pound of fresh vegetables per diem. These take the place of the ordinary ration, only tea and coll'ee being pro vided in addition. The allowance is at all times so liberal that the enlisted men cannot possibly consume the whole of it; so they lake part of it in cash which they utilize in ways pres ently to be described. The methods of housekeeping on board of a ship of war are very interest ing. All of the officers and men are divided up into little clubs, each of which has its cook and manages its owu all'airs. These clubs are called " messes." There is the captain's mess, the wardroom mess, the junior officers' mess, the warrant officers' mess, the petty officers' mess and the men's messes. Every officers' mess has a caterer, who is elected periodi cally from its own membership. The captain, because there is only one of him, must cater for himself. He messes by himself in his cabin and eats iu lonely state, save when he chooses to invite officers to dine with him. If the vessel is a flagship he may mess with the admiral or not, just as he chooses. The admiral has his own cabin, of course. The captain lias bis own steward, his private cook and two cabin boys. The admiral lias a like stall" of servants, with perhaps an extra boy. It must be understood that the " boys" on a war vessel are enlisted men at least twenty-one years old. The men are divided up iuto messes of twelve usually. Each such club elects its own caterer and chooses one of its members for cook, with the ap proval of the executive officer. The most important requirement for this culinary post is ability to make bread. Good breadmakers are in great de maud for such positions on board ship. The mess cook receives from the mess wages equal to the money equivalent of from one to two rations monthly— that is to say from $9,110 to SIB.GO a month. This salary is so much in ad dition to his pay from the Govern ment and renders the office very de sirable. The incumbent draws the rations from the paymaster and pre pares them for the table. But, be cause the allowance is greater than is needed, be takes only eight rations in food and the remaining four in money. The cash thus obtained goes to form what is called the mess fund, to which each man usually adds about $- monthly. The mess fund pays the cook and provides all sorts of luxuries, such as sweets, condensed milk and many other good things that can he purchased when ill port. The messes are organizations of military character. All of them are "Hew to the Line. Let the Chips I-'.'i 1! "Where they jVlay." under the direction of tlie e.veeutivt ollieer of the ship. That personage, alwavs the senior line ollieer on hoard. presides at the wardroom mess; the I other members of that eating club oc cupy places at the table in the order of their rank. Lino otlicers sit on the starboard side and stall' ollicers on the port side. But the caterer pro hm sits at the foot of the table. Though in ordinary matters informal, strict etiquette governs all essentials in tlie mess. The executive officer has au thority, to put a stop to any dispute or offensive conversation. A description of the management of the wardroom mess will serve, with few modifications, fur the ollicers' messes. The caterer buys the provi sions. lie gets them oil shore when the ship is in port. Except when compelled to <lo so, lie does not pur chase from tlie vessel's stores, hut draws the rations from the mess in cash. However, lie does usually ob tain from the paymaster what he needs in tlie way of cooking butter, j cooking sugar, rice, beans, pork and canned meats, paying for them in money, because these articles, as dis pensed by l T nele Sam, are just as good of their kind as can be got and are furnished at about cost. Members of the mess pay their bills monthly to the caterer. The cost of board to each officer in the wardroom is usually about |,!O a month. It is somewhat less on the Asiatic station, the markets in that part of the world being cheaper. There is a balance left over in the ca terer's hands, which goes to make tip the mess fund. This fund in the wardroom will sometimes amount to as much as SI,<XX). It provides for the replacement of crockery, for en tertaining by the mess while in port and for all sorts of unusual expenses. Every man in the navy, from the admiral down to thcjack o' dust, must supply his own bedclothes and mess furniture, such as crockery, etc. To each officer a mattress and pillow are allowed, and to each sailor a ham mock. Until recently the Govern ment has furnished nothing in the way of table ware, except for the cap tain, who is provided with enough things of the kind to set up a good sized household, including a dozen of everything. Within the last two months, however, all silver-plated ware required for the wardroom has j been allowed by the Bureau of Equip ment. To start a wardroom mess re quires an investment of SSO to $75 for each officer. At the end of a cruise all of the china, linen, etc- is sold for what it will bring—usual*- about ten per cent, ol the original cost. The proceeds are divided among the officers who owned the property. The kitchen of a ship of war is un der the direction of the ship's cook whose functions are like those of a chief in a great hotel. He is an im portant man in his way, and his re sponsibilities are great. The culinary department is on a considerable scale. In addition to the ordinary ship's kitchen or galley, the New York has three ranges—one for the admiral, another for the captain, and a third for the wardroom mess. In the gal ley all the cooking is done for the other officers and for the men. The various mess cooks serve merely as assistants. They prepare the meats, soups, breads, etc., for the tire, and the ship's cook does the rest. All waste grease, empty barrels and boxes from the paymaster's store room, and such refuse, are sold by the executive officer, the proceeds going to make up what is called the "slush fund." This money provides reading matter for the crew, extra music for the band, etc. The slush or grease used formerly to be a perquisite of the ship's cook, and the gale of it added largely to bis pay; but improved methods of cookery allow compara- J tively little waste in this shape. Just as smoke is said to be a symptom of imperfect combustion, so slush is a symptom of imperfect cooking. A Sturtliiig Statement. Prof. Chekly, a medical authority of Philadelphia, has created consterna tion in decent society by saying that American people use too much soap and water, and that they bathe alto gether too frequently. He makes the astounding and incredible statement that bathing with soap and water is 10 per cent, more injurious than any other form of stimulation. We short en our lives, it seems, by a too liberal application of soap and water. This, if they believe it, will he a cruel blow to the philanthropists who have seen j in the free bath a powerful reformatory ! agency. On the other hand, the fact that a very large portion of the human race prefers to remain extremely dirty will be less discouraging. - The Prairie shingle null near Wickersham lias assigned for the benelit of its creditors.

SPRAGUE IN ASHES. i i BUSINESS PORTION OF THE TOWN DESTROYED BY FIRE. I.oss liver a Million llMildreds of People Were Rendered Homeless land Destitute—A l.rnpliie Ac count of tlic Disaster. A dispatch from the scene of disas ter dated Saturday states that at noon on that day a fire broke out in Bryant's chop and feed mill on Rail road Avenue. The department re sponded promptly, but the blaze was quickly fanned into a roaring furnace, and the fire boys were driven back from the scene almost as soon as they arrived. With lightning rapidity the Dames leaped from one building to another, and inside of five minutes it was seen that the entire town was threatened. As the tlames reached the corner of G street they forked, one branch going north of the railroad track and consuming on its way the Northern Pacific grain warehouse, the National hotel, and the entire row of wooden buildings to the corner of 15 street. There it turned oil' to the Pacific ho tel, and the row of wooden buildings in the rear of it. From there it jumped to the old headquarters build ing, and Porak's brewery, totally de stroying the latter and the proprietor's residence. Meanwhile, the southern fork, with equal rapidity, consumed the build ings on Railroad avenue. First and Second streets, including the Com mercial hotel, the Herbring opera house, the city hall, It. Newman A Co.'s and the Masonic hall.' From there the flames leaped to the build ings west of the car-shops, ami in another minute they burst forth into (lames. It was impossible to do any thing to save the railroad buildings, for the water pipes had burst in that part of the city. Five minutes later a terrific explo sion occurred as the oil tanks burst and the timbers and flames rose high in the air. The lire was cheeked on the west side hv the brick buildings of tlie First National hank and of Jensen, King A Co., the occupants of these buildings placing wet blankets over the windows ami lighting the flames desperately. Mayor Sanderson at this time ar rived from Medical Lake, and ordered ttie building of Ben Ettleson, on the corner of 0 and First streets, blown up with dynamite. This was done, and the entire row of business houses on C street, between First and Second, was saved. The flatties here took a southeaster ly direction and destroyed tlie drug store of \V. P. Putnam, the Masonic hall, the county jail, the old opera house, the residences of It. It. Joues and E. H.Stanton. The flames were at this point checked by the blowing up with dynamite of the old opera house and the row of trees in front of H. \V. Bonnes' residence, and a deluge of water. The lire swept east as far as the stock-yards, completely obliterating in its course every residence and business house in that portion of the city. Fully :120 acres of land were burned over, every building thereon being completely wiped out. The scenes at the fire were inde scribable. Families rushed hither and thither wilti household goods and wearing apparel, seeking some place to deposit them. A few minutes later the safe place had become a dangerous one, aud they would grasp what they could and leave the rest to he de stroyed l>y the devouring flames. Fully one-fifth of the 3,001) inhabit ants of the city lost not only their household goods, but most of their wearing apparel. The excitement was terrific, espe cially at the time of the burning of the armory of troop A, when the am munition was discharged and bullets were whizzing out through the win dows, frightening the crowd and driv ing them hack to the next block. Al though the fire raged with great fury and traveled with remarkable velocity, there were very few accideuts. Archie Macintosh, a blacksmith, was knocked down by falling timbers and before be could be rescued was se verely burned about the face, neck and arms. James Montgomery, a young brother of Foreman Montgom ery, broke bis leg in jumping from one of the engines 011 the turntable. Charles Moore, a member of the tire department, stepped into a hole, back of the roundhouse, and sprained his ankle so badly that he had to he car ried away. The prisoners in the county jail were released when the tire was about one block away, and they did excellent work in assisting the neighboring business-houses to take their goods to a place of safety, but after the tire was under control they disappeared. Among the first buildings to go was tiie Northern Pacific railroad staiiou. As many of the books and papers as 1 possible were taken to a place of safe ly, iiml Operator Young lost no time in connecting the wires in one of the fields casl of town, where, seated on an iron wheelbarrow, with the tele graph instrument on a wooden box, lie sent and received messages as rap idly as possible. The scenes at the burning of the roundhouse were calculated to alarm and excite even the coolest. Flames rose to a height of fully 100 feet, and seemed bursting from every portion of the roof at the same instant. Work men lost many dollars' worth of tools. They trade desperate ellbrts to save them, hut were driven back by the flames. It is estimated that fully .fa,OlK) worth of tools belonging to the workmen were destroyed, upon which there was no insurance. Engine after engine was run out from the roundhouse only to be met by the ad vancing Dames, and the driver obliged to jump and Dee for bis life. Twenty four locomotives were destroyed, only seven being saved. Four hours after the fire started, the j town presented a scene of utter deso | lation. A few smouldering ruins alone marked the spot of what had been the prosperous city of Spragtte. Hundreds are homeless, and the losses will aggregate $1,2.">0,00t). The town was almost destitute of food, and Ma vor Sanderson has sent messages to the leading cities appealing for aid. The people are appalled by their frightful losses, and it will be several days before they will know whether to try to rebuild the city or not. A lIOROLOGICAL WONDER. A 4'ompllriitril Time Keeping Oddilf ■ n Killed l»> a Kusslaii role. St. Louis Republic. The prize wonder in the shape of a clock is the invention of a Russian I'ole named Uoldfudon. The inventor is a clock maker of Warsaw and boasts that be worked over 2,000 days on the time keeping oddity. The clock represents a railway station, with waiting rooms for travelers, telegraph and ticket of fices and a very protty and natural platform, well lighted and having in its center a flower garden and a spout ing fountain. There are also signal boxes, lights, switches, water tanks — in fact, everything used in conjunction witli a well regulated railway station There is a dial in the center tower,- which shows time at New York, Peking, Warsaw ami London. Every quarter of an hour the station begins to show signs of life. First all of the little tigures of telegraph operators begin to work their machines, the head au tomaton going through the form of sending a dispatch to the effect that " the line is clear." Then the door opens, and upon the platform appear the station master and his assistants. Next a long line of little tigures file up to the miniature ticket office. After this the porters appear, carry ing luggage, the bell rings, and in stantly a miniature train dashes out of a tunnel and halts before the platform of the station house. While the train is waiting a miniature figure tests the wheels and axles with a liny hammer, another pumps water into the tank of the engine, while a third busies him self stowing away small lumps of coal in the silver-plate tender. There is one signal of the bell, whereupon the door of the single coach opens, and the little figures slide in on an almost in visible wire, the opening closing after them. A second tap of the hell is the signal for the wheel tester, waterman and fuel carrier to retire into the sta tion house. After the third signal the whistle gives two toots, and the train quickly disappears iu a tunnel opposite to the one from which it emerged five minutes before. When the train is out of sight, the station master and his assistants leave the platform, the doors close be hind them, and they all retire to the other side of the station house, where, at the expiration of 15 minutes, the train again appears, and the passengers file out and seat themselves in the building preparatory to taking another trip around the station house.

I'Cie Preparation of food and Drink for ll,e Sick - Wiiiit will Aid and Wlial Kelard foil valeseenee.— Pacts tliuc Will (Save Doctor's ■tills. Dietetic and Hygienic Gazette. In acute intlammatory rheumatism, meat in any form is to be avoided, while fruit, green vegetables, gruels, and vegetable soups are likely to prove beneficial. Hysterical subjects need a generous meat diet, and should avoid spirituous and fermented liquors. Consumptives require a liberal diet, and should partake freely of sub stances rich in fat, as meats and prep arations of cream or milk. In diabetes, the diet should be highly nourishing and varied, and should include all meats —excepting liver—and vegeta bles not rich in 6tarcli or sugar; while all starchy and saccharine foods, malt liquors and wines are to be avoided. In diseases of the heart, a dry, nourish ing diet is most conducive to the com fort of the invalid, as liquids are ab sorbed slowly; the table should be generous, but stimulants and strong coffee should he excluded, as they readily excite the heart's action. Before presenting the various re ceipts and formulas available for pre paring special varieties of food and drink for the sick and infirm, we would call attention to the fact that so-called " dieting" can easily he carried to ex tremes, and that due nourishment may thus lie withheld from bodies and organs in which vitality is running low. Referring to this subject, the late Prof. Gross, of Philadelphia—to whose utterances the weight of au thority has always been accorded— once said: " The diet of the sick room has slain its thousands and tens of thons ands. ilroths, and slops, and jellies, and custards, and ptisans are usually as disgustiug as they are pernicious. Men worn out by disease and injury must have nutritious and concentrated food. The ordinary preparations for the sick are, in general, not only not nutritious, but inspid and flatulent. Animal soups are among the most ef ficient supporters of the exhausted system, and every medical man should know how to give directions for their preparation. The life of a man is Ins food. Solid articles are, of course, withheld in acute diseases in the ear lier stages; but when the patient be gius to convalesce, they are frequently home with impunity, and greatly pro mote recovery. All animal soups should ho made of lean meat, and their nutritious properties, as well as their flavor, may be much increased by the addition of some vegetable sub stances, as rice or barley." The following rules, suggested by Dr. Napheys, should always be ob served in preparing, cooking and serv ing food for the sick: All the utensils employed should be scrupulously clean. Never make a large quantity of one thing at a time. Serve everything in as tempting and elegant a form as possible. Put only a small quantity of an article on a dish at a time. Keep milk aud other delicacies on ice iu warm weather. Never leave food about a sick room. Prevent, as far as possible, the odor of food iu process of preparation from reaching the sick room. Never otl'er beef tea or broth with the smallest particle of fat or grease on it, nor milk that is sour, nor meat or soup that is turned, nor an egg that is bad, nor vegetables tbat are underdone. Milk is justly held in high esteem as an article of diet for the sick. As a rule, it is agreeable to the palate and easy of digestion; still, in order to in sure its highest usefulness, due man agement is necessary. A simple fresh milk diet is not only monotonous, but frequently occasions trouble. Biliousness may ensue aud gastric and intestinal irritation supervene; while the purity and innocuousness of fresh cow's milk may many times be ques tioned. Only milk recently drawn from the udder should bo used in the sick room, and, ou the score of safety, this should he boiled as soon as re ceived and set in a cool place. As a nourishing beverage, this boiled milk may he served either cold or luke warm, and for weak stomachs may be greatly improved by the addition— when administered—of an equal quantity of carbonated water. (Conclusion next week. I HARD TASK KOK MCKINI,EY. —Gov- ernor McKinley is having a tough time of it making the taritl* the para mount issue, and if wages continue to advance under the new law, so far from the tariff becoming the para mount issue it will go out of politics altogether, as it did after the passage of the Democratic taritl' of 1840. Louisville Times. Ilnrd l p for an IGxplanutioii. Bellefonte, Fa., Watchman. The supporters of the McKiuley policy are driven to desperate straits by the prosperous condition of the country. Instead of the financial dis tress and business prostration, which they predicted as the result of a Dem ocratic tariff, they find their calarai tious prophesy refuted by an easy financial condition and a revival of activity iri every branch of industry. They are abashed by such a sequel to their calamity howl. Upon the first dawn of the indus trial restoration, following in the wake of the Wilson bill, they endeavored to make light of the reports of factories resuming work and wages increasing. They represented it as being merely the invention of Democratic newspa pers. But when this could no longer be successfully denied they attributed the improvement to the effect of last year's election and the hope thereby inspired among manufacturers that the McKiuley tariff would be restored. But the absurdity of this became so apparent that they were forced to re sort to another line of reasoning, and now they claim that the Republicans are entitled to the credit for the good which the Wilson tariff is doing the country. They represent that if it had not been for the efforts of Repub lican congressmen to defeat and ob struct the measure there is no telling what the " free traders" would have put into it for the destruction of the industries and the ruiu of the coun try. It having turned out to be so beneficial a measure, in spite of their opposition and evil predictions, they would not like to make it appear that it is not to be attributed to the Demo crats. By a singular system of logic they advance the claim that because they did all they could to defeat the Wilson tariff its good etl'ects are to be entirely ascribed to tbem. Tliis claim won't stand the test of reasonable examination. If they would have had their way not a duty on a single article would have been reduced, but it is seen that in those industries in which the duties were cut down thirty, forty and even fifty per cent, such as steel, iron, woolen, and cotton fabrics, tin and a number of other articles that might be men tioned, the revival is the most marked and the increase grows the greatest. When it appears that the restoration of prosperity is the most pronounced in the line of manufacturers from which the largest amount of duty was removed, it is singular logic that would credit that result to Kepublican oppo sition to the reduction of duties. The New Campaign ot Education. The first campaign of education on the tariir was one of argument. It carried the country for reform, but had no practical effect because a Re publican Senate blocked the way. The present campaign of education is one of experience—the best school master. Logic may fail to convince, sophistries may deceive, eloquence may beguile, but object-lessons in struct. Hard facts are not easily got over. The country is seeing for itself the operation and effects of a tariff re formed in part, and the demonstration is more effective than all the speeches that were ever made or all the articles that were ever written. Wool was made free, as it was for forty years in this country anil lias always been in every other manufac turing country in the world. The duties on woolen manufactures were correspondingly reduced. Are the farmers J ruined? Are our woolen mills given over to the owls and the muskrats? Have wages goue down to the " pauper level of Europe." quite the contrary. Withiu a month there has been an average rise in price of wool of two cents A pound. The price of sheep is increasing. Idle mills have started up on full time. Thirty-eight new factories were con tracted for in the tirst six months of this year, against only seventeen in the same period last year. The wages of woollen operatives have been volun tarily increased from 10 to 12 per cent. And the people are getting more and better and cheaper cloth ing. The duties on iron ore and on coal were reduced nearly oue-lialf. The iron industry has not been so tlourish ing in years as it is to day, aud wages in it everywhere advanced. Tin ore was made free and the duty on tin-plates reduced one-half. The industry is increasing and prospering as never before. The duties on cottons were reduced. Seventy-three new mills were built or contracted for during the tirst half of this year. The great factories arc run ning full time with increased wages. The brick building in South Aber deen, erected in boom days, burned to the ground last week. 11 had never been occupied except for school pur i poses. WHOLE NUMBER 1,85 ft. President, I'anhier, A. A.
