The cold wave is far reaching and in the northwest is .very severe. The mercury has probably reached its lowest mark here. Dr. Parkhurst's latest sensation is a declaration that the souls of the wicked will not inherit immortality. This theory would do away with the doctrine of future punishment.

THE roVIEIi LET H) Eeserve Supply ot Hir!i Explosives Stored &t Park Avenue Hut ranee to Tunuel Creates Hatoc. Eight Lives Pay the Penalty For jSuniebodj s t'eekle-ai ess and Property Loss Incurred. New York. Jan. 28. The reserva supply of high explosives stored at the Park avenue shaft of the rapid transit tunnel, new in course of con struction, blew up yesterday after noon. The giant blast killed eight persons in lured a hundred others and seriously damaged all the property reached by the flying debris and the vibration of the shock. The irregu lar square formed by the Murray Hill hotel on the west, the Manhattan Eye and Ear hospital, and the Grand Un ion hotel on the east and the Grand Central railroad station on the north was the seen of the explosion. The buildings named sustained the great eat damage, but the area affected ex tended for several blocks In the four directions from the center. J. Roderick Robertson of Nelson, B. C, was killed by debris hurled with tha force of artillery into his room at the Murray Hill hotel. He was general manager in Canada for the British Columbia Gold Fields compa ny, and a prominent citizen in the community where he lived. He Is said to have been quite wealthy. The sunken approach to the street railway tunnel used by the Madison avenue line cuts through Park avenue and the shaft for the rapid transit subway was run down beside it at the intersection of East 41st street. The street railway approach was housed over with a superstructure used for the operating plant of the rapid tran sit contractors. Temporary buildings for storage purposes were thrown up against the superstructure at the mouth of the shaft, and there the ex plosion occurred. It tore a great cored in the street, demolished the temporary buildings and part of the superstructure, and sent a mass of earth, splintered timber and twisted iron high in the air. Much of it went battering against the front of the Murray Hill hotel, and although the walls and main structure of that build ing stood the shock, nearly every room In the house was wrecked. The Manhattan Eye and Ear hospi tal on the east side of the avenue fared nearly as badly and had to be abandoned by the management. The Grand Union hotel lost all of its win dows and glass partitions, and practi cally every front window In the Grand Central station was shattered. The great clocks on its front towers were blown from their cas?s. Thousands of windows, some of them Beven blocks from the tunnel and shaft, fell in fragments. It was the shower of broken glass and falling debris that injured the greatest number. General alarms brought firemen, po lice reserves and every available am bulance to the district and the injured were speedily cared for. A majority of the injured were treated on the spot and the white-coated ambulance surgeons worked for an hour in the debris strewn street. Police lines were thrown across either end of Park avenue and across the intersecting streets. Several times the police cleared the street of people In front of the Murray Hill hotel. Torrents of water from broken mains poured into the tunnel shaft while the wreckage was being cleared from the street railway subway, and ft was feared that the street might cave in. The cause of the explosion and the quantity of explosives that blew up are not definitely known. Several causes have been advanced. One was that a fire started near the powder room and that Master Mechanic Wm. Tubbs lost his lite in a desperate at tempt to quench it before it reached the deadly fuel. It will probably -take an official investigation to reveal the true explanation. Several men who were very cloae to the shaft escaped, while others hundreds of feet away were knocked down and injured.!'!7 , PUtriet Attorney Jerome visited the scene and made an investigation to guide him in the official inquiry and possible criminal prosecution that will follow. Ira A. Shaler. engineer in charge of the work at Park avenue. John Bracken, a foreman, and Martin McGrath. an assistant foreman, were placed under arrest and charged with homicide. William Barclay Parsons, chief engineer of the rapid transit, commission, said that Shaler was one of the most competent and careful en gineers he ever knew. The damage may exceed $1.000 ,(M0. The flist estiate on the Murray Hill hotel placed the loss at $100.0 ;0, but later the hotel was abandoned as un safe. If the building is condemned the loss on it alone will approach SI. 000.000. The damage to the Grand Un ion was estimated at 940.000 and that to the Manhattan hospital at $25,000. The loss at the Grand Central station was entirely in glass, as was that of the 100 or more other building af fected by the explosion. No estimate was made of the losses sustained by the rapid transit contractors. SHOOK i" i WRIGHT'S CORNER i i r t SOCIETY Lf V.Aicri A. TICZ ' Major "Wright U.d .alvvays Im a ec-'u slut i i :a cM u.il chap, lie ar.a biy 1UI t !; thiiig-r wbivii ve-e not expected nnI left uiidoue those tilings ftr wbici hU friends ft It they uad a right to l'ok. Kvt-u u il.c k Cv rhauge. where be bad amassed a for tune, be sin-u!ated uu lilies d. recti apposed to current rejiorts. When be foi:r.d that Bertram. Li anly son, had incurred during his sen ior year at college an unconscionable amount of debt, instead of adopting the ?ustouiary parental tactics. Le prompt ly paid the bills and doubled the young fellow's allowance. "Let, tbe boy have his fun." be de clared. "This is bis last year in col lege. Why, I sowed a few oats my self at that age. and look at me now!" But. wheJi a few years later Bertram married Edith B.vrne, a favorite on the light ojiera stage, family friends held their breath and waited for the deluge of fatherly t wrath. Surely Major Wright, who traced his geneal ogy to the Mayflower, would never overlook this! Aristocratic Llood, fam ily pride and parental affection all would rebel against the mesalliance. But again did the major's proverbial contrariness assert itself. He received tbe bride with open arms. Not so the social set In which the Wrights had always moved. Conserv ative In the extreme, with old fashion ed suspicion of stage life and stage people still lurking In their minds, they declined politely but firmly to receive young Mrs. Wright, in spite of the fact that the major's wife, now gone to her long rest, had been their leader in her day. auJ the old right mansion a favorite rallying ground before Bertram was born. The new Mrs. Wright bad once played boy roles aud worn Here the speaker's voice would be discreetly lowered, and a feeling of general despair over " Bertram's pros pects would settle upon the gossips. As for the major, he seemed to grow young again in the invigorating society of his new found daughter, who was a charming girl and felt a genuine af fection for the dear old chap, who had so easily forgiven her for wlnuing his son's love. To make the two men hap py became her object in life. Their wishes were Orst in the household, and the major ttecame her dented slave, to Cie extent that the slightest lack of attention on the part of the husband was promptly resented and atoned for by some delicate little courtesy on the part of the father-in-Jaw. , - , L- "Egad. sir," be would 6ny to histoid cronies at the club, "you don't know my daughter! She's the dearest little woman in the city, sir!" And the men who met her agreed with Major Wright cordially aud openly. The women, however, con tinued to raise their lorgnettes and their shoulders when she passed by and carefully refrained from leaving cards. The major, for the time, was so happy that be did uot notice the social ostra cism to which the house of Wright was being subjected, and the younger mem bers of the family were too thoughtful to bring the condition to his atten tion. When be tiuatly woke up to a realizatiou of the situation, he was quickly transformed into a mimic vol cano that is. internally. Outwardly he disdained to discuss the matter with any one. least of all with the two peo ple essential to his happiness. Instead of talking he wrote out a handsome check and sent Mr. and Mrs. Bertram Wright abroad for the sumuKar. lie felt sure some solution of the problem would present itself during their ab sence. But. alas, the day of their homeeom iug arrived, and the doughty major realized that lie was no nearer storm ing the social citadel than when the yonng couple bad sailed for Europe. In the society columns of the daily pa pers he had read that Mrs. EdmtiDd A. Gilder was to give the first impor tant social function of the ensuing sea son, a dancing party. The Gilder ball room was the pride of the social world in which the Wrights tiad moved. The elegance of the entertainment, the exr clusiveness of the invitation list and the beauty of the youngest daughter, who was to make bi r debut on thia great occasion, alt furnished material for newspaper gossip. And Major Wright sat in bis library fingering ao oblong, creamy envelope directed to "Major Winslow A. Wright" Only one invitation, and Bertram and Ber tram's sweet wife would be borne that day! - st He tossed the Invitation on bis desk and walked down to bis office, a storm of wrath seething in his warm, loving heart. Before be settled down to busi ness a messenger appeared and handed him a note, with -"In Haste Delivei Immediately." written across one corner. Major Ti'right tore It open and read it hurriedly, then again carefully, and a third tim. niore deliberately than be fore. These words met his eves: M Drr Wrlsbt For Gxi'a ulc let u feat c&ie C N. cod K. ! I'm short about 500 iluim mtxl it I don't grt them I'm a mined man. 1 wtB pay ansprin,. Make four cn terms. Voorm, -EMcsa A. ClUMj- Major Wright told the messenger tc wait five minutes in the main offlce then, locking himself in. he thought hard and fast. -: For a long time there bad been ru mors on tbe street that tbe firm efl Gilder & Son bad lost heavily Jn th coITapse of a Belgium syndicate,"" "bet! tbe invitations, for the ball bad doac ; imcli to quiet suspicion. Perhaps ao j ine besides Major Wright knew just (tow deeply the tirm was involved, j And now what did this Bote mean? j Gilder bad evidently contracted to de j liver shares of C N. atal R. when j the flurry over this ttock was on. and he had found on arriving at the ex . change that a corner was being form ; ed. He had gone from broker to bro ker, offering any price to save hi ; ; en-dif. and tlst-a he had remeiulered c. x an.i ii stock Wright, who bad "C. X. to burn";;, that was press .on ;.tler probably aiui u. stock the very ex-cs--d. But it was nt the thought of this which caRscd Major Wright to chuckle de lightedly as he wio'.e the following note: Dear GiMer-.! am .-.rrr to luir 4 ur d;flt cuitjf. A tjr myseif.

If you nred any further assistance in tiding oier tbe situation, oo not hesitate to call on yours truly. ' Wtvatow A. Wrioht. That afternoon the Gilder brougham drew up before Major Wright's home, and a few moments later Sfrrs. Ber tram Wright, greatly surprised, but perfectly self possessed, was receiv ing from three baudsomely gowned women a well bred welcome on her return to America. The very next morning the postman left two oblong, creamy envelopes. One was addressed to the major, the other to Mr. and Mrs Bertram Wright. And if the pretty bride ever found the invitation first received by the ma Jor or guessed at the contents of the package she delivered to Mrs. Ed mund A. Gilder on the occasion of that memorable call she was loo wise a wo man to whisper it even to her doting father-in-law. for it required only the aiiea ranee of Mrs. Bertram Wright at the Gilder ball to establish her so cial standing and to justify Majot Wright's corner in C. X. and K. an. society. A ""nefr" Prrarhrr. Bcv. Mr. Hngamore. to whose mom ory is a slrt! in tlse church at Catshoge. Leicestershire. England, was "a littl1 queer."

His last employment of an evening was tj go the rounds ol his premises, let loose the dotrs ant hre oil his gun. He lost his lire in a curious maimer. Starting out to let oui his servants, the dogs fawned upon him and threw him into a pond of wa ter. The servants heard his cries, tuit being locked up could not render as sistance. so the old man was drowned. When the inventory of bis property was taken, he was found to be tli owner of SO gowns. tK) pairs of trou sers, 100 pairs of boots, 400 pairs ol shoes. SO wigs (although he had plent of natural bain. 50 dogs. iHJ wagon and carts. tiO wheelbarrows. i!4I razors SO plows. T.O saddles and pickaxe and shovels. He surely was "a little queer." Arajro'ai Modesty. Arago. the great French scientist was never seen with a decoration on bis breast. He valued honors slightly. One e vening Iverrier. the astronomer, called on him on his way to dine witt a minister. He expressed a wlsb tc appear decorated with an order, tc which he was entitled, having received the official notice of the honor, al though he had not as yet the decora tiou itself. "Oien that drawer." said Arago "and take whatever you want." In that drawer were all the crosset aud ribbons which kings and emperor couf'er. While Arago wished a!-ovp every thing to promulgate science and tc make Iis researches ul'ul.. he did not attempt to identify himself forever with his discoveries by writing books He had no time for writinir. but con tented himself with uoting tbe result of his w.rk in the record of the bitreat of louisjtnde or announcing it verba ilj to the academy.
