The A CINCINNATI BLAZE. v A Great Far House Destroyed Together With Other BaslaeM Property—Loss Es timated at 51,500,000. Cincinnati, July 9- —A little after 10 o’clock last night came an alarm of fire calling a relay of engines to the great building occupied by A. E. Burkhardt <fc Co., manufacturers of and wholesale and retail dealers in furs and fur goods. Fire had started in the lower of th* two cellars and soon grew so great that the entire department was called out, At 11 o’clock the building was a fur nace of white flame. The streets werfc full of spectators. The store room of this building has been pronounced by traveled citizens and visitors the finest in America At twenty minutes past 12 o’clock the east wall of the Hooper building rocked and tottered and then fell onto the roof of the Pape Manufacturing Co.’s build ing next east of it with a roar and crash, followed by crash after crash and filling the air with blinding dust, making darkness where a moment before was brilliant illumination. The Pape Manufacturing Co.’s build ing was a three story brick. It was an extensive picture framing establish ment, one of the oldest and most exten sive in the city, and carried a large stock of pictures, paintings, engravings and moldings. The front three-quar ters of the building, where the most valuable goods are kept was completely ruined a mass of debris crushed into the cellar and the outer walls thrown into the street The loss can hardly be less than 5100,000, while the loss to the building is possibly 520,000, as it was very old. The building was the property of William A. Hooper, banker and finan cier, and was 100 feet wide on Fourth street and extended back 150 feet to an alley. Its Fouith street front was sev en stories high and its height on the alley was eight and a half stories. It also extended two stories deep under the ground. It was nearly new and cost 8200,000 to put up, while Burkhardt added $90,000 in interior adornment within the last two years. Burkhardt said that he could only give a rough estimate of the valqe of the stock in the building and that was to the best of his belief between 8000,- 000 and 8700,000. The east frontage on of the Hooper building was occupied by Henry Geiershofer & Co., dealers in clothing and manufacturers. They es timated theij stock at over 8400,000. Probably 8125,000 worth of this is un der tarpaulin on the north side of Fourth, near Race street, thanks to the energy of the salvage company, the fire having started in Burkhardt’s es tablishment at the corner, which gave time to save some of the goods. The rest went with ’the great Good man building. Geiershofer’a loss will not be less than 8250,000 and they have that amount of insurance that their loss will be fully covered. The loss of the building will not be less than 8250,000, and if Mr. Burkhardt’s estimate of his stock is correct, the loss by this fire will reach 81,500,000. HAMLINS FUNERAL.

A New Fork Medical Journal Gives Some Timely Advice in Regard to the Spread of Consumption. New York, July &-»-In an article on the selection of health resorts for pa tients by physicians the Medical Jour nal calls attention to the factors of climate, water supply and others, but particularizes with regard to one, say ing: Among communicable disorders con sumption or tuberculosis takes rank as the chief destroyer of mankind. More over, it is precisely those afflicted with this dread disease who receive marked benefit from certain climates, and who, therefore, congregate in large numbers in such regions as seem most favorable for their improvement In this country they select Florida, the Carolinas, Col orado and Southern California; in Eu rope certain portions of the Mediterra nean coast A legion of hotels and boarding houses has sprung up to meet the requirements of this migration. Now, in the light of recent medical discovery, each tuberculosis patient is to be regarded as a nidus (nest) of tubercular germs. From him others may be contaminated by inhaling the specific microbes which exist in his lungs and which are continually being ejected from him by expectoration. Comparatively few tuberculous patients are as yet aware of the in fective nature of the discharges fnom their lungs and of the need fortheir de struction, although it is now ten years since Weichselbaum, of Vienna, caused numberless rabbits to die of tuber culosis by having them breathe air which was made to pass over the sputa (spittle) of human consumptives before it reached their cages. The bacilli of the disease, discovered by Koch, are at present in large numbers in the expec toration, but they are not specially dangerous so long as they are not dry enough to be blown about in the at mosphere and to be inhaled and begin devastations anew in some delicate but still healthy pulmonary organ. We say, then, and desire to empha size these facts, that consumptive pa tients are not fully aware of the venom that is in them, that their relatives and friends do not know of the danger, and particularly that this knowledge has certainly not yet reached the hotels and boarding houses of the health re sorts; and we might further add that even the physicians at many of these climatological stations seem not yet to have awakened to the need of acting upon the results of recent medical re searches. Let us examine almost any one of their hotels or boarding houses. In many of their rooms for years consump tive patientshave passed whole seasons, taking no precautions as to the ulti mate destination of the bacilli which emanated from them. They spend whole days upon spacious verandas, on whose floors are numerous tell-tale stains, each at some time or another the temporary resting-place of number* of tubercular germs. The warm sun and the gentle airs, which are the special features of such resorts, both favor mi crobic desiccation and local dissemina tion. What chance, then, we ask, has the consumptive to avoid further Inocu lation of his wounded pulmonary tis sues? What opportunity have the healthy relatives or friends who accom pany the patient or other winter visit ors to escape the risks of breathing this bacillus-laden atmosphere? It will be seen that the consumptive owes it to his fellow-men to protect them from contagion as far as possible. This he can do to a great extent by the careful destruction of his expectora tion. At the large apothecaries’ shops paper cups are to be had by the dozen at a small price which after use can be burned. The keepers of hotels should see that the rooms of tuberculous pa tents are plainly and appropriately fur nished for their special use under the advice of a physician, and after the de parture have them properly disinfected and renovated. In such rooms, in the long eorridors and upon all of the piaz zas there should Im* an abundant supply of cuspidors; these should always be half filled with water, and the contents should be burned or otherwise destroyed daily. The verandas should be thoroughly scrubbed with soap and water, or with with some antiseptic solution dally. But naturally our chief reliance must be placed upon the education of the in valids themselves and their relative* or attendants to a knowledge of the facts, and upon their conscientious and scru pulous carrying out of the procedures recommended. In the meantime, un til these innovations are made, con sumptives and other delicate visitor* to such winter resorts will do better to flee to farms or to tents and camp out upon the hotel grounds or in the pine woods or among the mountain soMtudes than to endan ger their future Id rooms which reek with the germs left by former occu panta, or upon veranda* where lurk virulent and insidious enemies. A New Cere for Com u» pt lon. Pari*, July • —Dr. Lannalongue's method of treating tabercuk«is is to inject a solution of chloride of zine into the affected tissue.

Execution of Four Murderers By »«*- tricity at Sin* Stag, N. T.—Everything Worked Well-Death Instantaneous. Sing Sing, N. Y., July A—The killing of the four murderers, James A. Slo cum, Harris Smiler, James Wood and Shibinja Jugiro, wm done yesterday morning. Slocum was killed at o’clock; Smiler was put to death at 5:14; Wood met his doom nt 5:89; Jugiro waa killed. at«;OA At 4 o’clock Slocum walked into the death room, accompanied by Father Creeden. He seemed to be making a tremendous effort to keep his com posure. He had received Father Cree den’s last offices and had declared him self ready to die. He was firmly strapped into the ehair and the death current waa applied. Death was instantaneous. There waa a sudden contraction of the nerve* and all was over. Smiler came next. Rev. Mr. Edger* ton cheered him up. Before Smiler had. time to think he waa strapped in the chair and an instant later the current of electricity was flashed through him that sent him into eternity. . Next to follow was Wood, the negro. He had been worked up to a state of religious enthusiasm and it waa while in this frame of mind that he waa fast ened into the chair and killed by th* fatal shock. Jugiro was stubborn to the last. ’ " There was no apparent hitch in the four executions and they were pro nounced a success. The death of the four men appeared to the observer to be painless. Death came like a flash. It was one awful shock and then ob livion. The doctors took charge of the four bodies immediately after death and be gan an autopsy to discover a* far aa possible how rapid had been the killing and the precise effect produced. The witnesses were besieged by re porters as soon aa they made their ap pearance from the prison. All of them refused to say anything, except that the execution passed off without a hitch and had been a success Warden Brown had laid a strict injunction of secrecy upon them all and had evidently made such an impression upon their minds that they were loth to talk. All looked thoroughly used up and exhausted. They had been through a terrible or deal and the effects were plainly visible on their faces Slocum waa awakened at 8:30 a. m. and as he sprang from his cot, rubbing his eyes, he asked: “Is it time?" “Not quite yet," Principal Keeper Connanghton replied; “but it will soon be bow, my boy." Slocum gave a sort of gasp m he re alized that his last hour had come. Nevertheless, he steadied himself an<l after a trenrulons minute jer two / said: “All right, I will be t®*dy.” While he was waiting fhr hi* last meal on earth, his spiritual adviser* came into his cell and passed about fif teen minutes with him. He received holy communion. His breakfast was ready. He ate sparingly of boiled eggs and coffee, and at 3:15 he signified that he wm ready for the supreme trial The Invited witnesses who Were anxiously waiting for the death scene, took up their positions There wm not as much formal order about the march as there used to be in the Tomb*. Slocum walked steadily to the awful room. His arms were tied behind hi* back and a strap on his legs allowed him to step about twelve inches at a pace. No time was lost. When the death chamber was reached, Slocum walked to the fatal chair and sat down. Hi* feet were tied and his arms and head firmly fixed to the proper place*. He was ready in a moment. A moment later Warden Brown touched the boll and the current waa applied. Slocum died instantly. Half an hour after Slocum waa awakened Smiler had been aroused, and while Slocum ale his breakfMt Smiler was being prepared for his crisis by Rev. Edgerton. Exactly thirty-one minutes after Slocum's dead body had been removed from the chair to the au topsy room,Smiler was placed in the seat of death. In the fraction of a second after the straps were secured the fatal spark was applied and Smiler was dead. One of the jury fainted, but Keeper Con naugh ton's presence of mind quelled any consequent disturbance. The electrocution of Wood nod Jugiro then followed quickly. Slocum and Smiler were wife mur derers. Wood and Jugiro had killed their men in brawls The electrodes were not applied, M in the Ke mml er case, to the top of the head and the base of the skull, but were bound to the foreheads of the con demned men and then the calves of th* legs. The current wm turned on in each ease for twenty second*. The voltage was between 1,500 and I.SOG In each case there were apparent evi dences of revival, m in the Xenrmlor case, and in each of these four case* the current wm turned on a sec ond time. In spite of the fact that the sponges were kept con stantly wet. all four men were burned by the current, especially about the calves of the legs. The medical men present agree that death came on the first contact, and that the seeming re vival wm merely a reflex muscular ac tion. None of the witnesses were over come by fright, and all of them who have spoken have made the statement that the electrode* were sneceeafnl and that death in all rose* wm Lostau taneou* and painless.
