AFTER ALL BIG FIRES.
MEN WHO MAY BE SEEN IN THE RUINS OP A CONFLAGRATION. Strange Thine* Happen That Ordinary Paopla Would Never Dream About. The Work That Firemen, Policemen, Patrolmen and Adjusters Do. After the fire ia over, what then? The average citizen sees only a heap of smok ing rains and thinks that nothing re mains to be done but to clear them away and baild anew. But to the initiated the details of the work are manifold. There are four bodies of men actively concerned with the ruins. First, the firemen. They distrust the red dragon. He maybe lurking under •ny of the heaps of bricks, ready for a fresh outbreak. So they do what they call overhauling. They turn over all the smoking piles and drench the embers and wet down the neighboring walls and remain on guard until everything is cold. Sometimes they have to wait nearly a week, and their work after the fire is very laborious, as in the Park place fire, where so many lives were lost. Three days after the fire was over there were still fifty firemen at work on the ruins getting out the bodies and watching the place to make sure that no flames would start up again. Many of these fifty men worked for forty-eight hours incessantly, with only three hours intervals for meals. At the great fire that destroyed the Havemeyer sugar re finery it was more than a week before the ruins were cold enough to be safe. Second, the police. They protect the firemen from the crowds of citizens who come to look on and the property res cued from the rabble who come to loot. They draw* what is called afire line about the burning building and keep it up after it is burned till the work of the firemen is done. Third, the fire patrol. This is a pro fessional band of property rescuers, maintained by the insurance companies. It was organized forty years ago, and was then composed entirely of members of the volunteer fire department. In 1863 it was incorporated under a charter which commissioned it to save lives and property at fires. In the first place it really was a patrol, walking about the streets from 7:30 o'clock each evening till 5:30 o'clock next morning looking for fires. Now it is called to fires in the same way as the regular fire depart ment. Its men used to wear the same uniforms as the firemen, but there was a row over that and now they are distin guished by red stripes. THE FIRE PATROL. The men of the fire patrol go out with trucks, one truck from each station. Each truck carries eleven men and axes, ladders, brooms, shovels, crowbars and twenty-four immense tarpaulin cover ings, with which the fire patrol rushes into a building comparatively safe from fire, but drenched with water, and covers up the goods there. The patrolmen usually worir under the firemen. For instance, if there is afire on the fourth floor they are busy on the third floor and the floors below covering up goods with the tarpaulins and removing them out of the way of water. They also follow the hose lines where these lines run through buildings not on fire to stop all leaks in the hose or set buckets under the leaks or protect goods from spray. They can't tell till the fire is over whether the property they are saving is insured or not therefore they go ahead without paying any attention to the question. The fire patrol follow the firemen and fix things up, saving all they can for the insurance companies and stopping all unnecessary damage. When the fire men and police have gone away the fire patrol stays with the agents of the own ers, guarding the goods till the insur ance is settled or the rescued property is removed to a place of safety. After all is said and done at the fire proper, come the insurance adjusters poking about the ruins. This is a small, high priced body of shrewd and experi enced men, whose business is to find out on behalf of the insurance companies how much the loss was. An insurance adjuster will always tell yon that his is a judicial function, just as a district at torney always contends that he is acting judicially, though the prisoner may not think so. The insured seldom agree with the insurance adjuster. He is sent on behalf of the insurance companies, and is on the watch for fraud. THE ADJUSTERS' WORK.. The serious work does not usually be gin till the ashes are cold. Insurance companies don't take inventories of the property insured nowadays. The con tents of a store are constantly chunking. They wait for the insured to make out bis claim in itemized form. Thwi tliey call for the books and the vouchers. Maybe all books and vouchers are burn ed. In that case the memory of the owner must do its best to supply the de ficiency. Frauds are frequent, and the adjusters ire usually in business for themselves— not attached to any particular company, but hired by the job, just like lawyers or private detectives. They have to keep their eyes wide open. In cases like the Park place fire, where everything becomes a heap of ruins in an instant, and no books or papers or ma terial evidence of any kind is left, th« adjusters have to depend on careful scrutiny of the itemized claims: but in numbers of other cases where the fire de partment does its work rapidly the ad justers make most astonishing finds. After the insurance ia settled the owner of the building puts the ruins up for sale. There are a number of con tractors in the city who will buy them on speculation.—New York Recorder.

HOW RUBENS PAID A BILL. Be Painted a Fortune for HU Ungrate ful Landlord, Who Didn't Like It. In the beginning of the Seventeenth century Peter Panl Rubens, whose name had not the same sound then as now, livwl in Paris, at a modest inn near the palace of his patroness, Maria de Medici. Sometimes he had his pock ets full of money and lived like a prince, but oftener he was without a pfennig at any rate he paid his host very irregu larly, or not at all. The host did not consider it an honor to board this great painter, and as he had a supreme con tempt for art, he often cast insults at Rubens. One day when the innkeeper was in an especially bad humor he threatened to throw Rubens out of the door like a tramp and without further notice. Rubens had just had an audience with Louvre, but did not possess a hel ler. What should he do? The tavern keeper would not reason, but wanted to see cash under any circumstances money must be procured. The artist took a small picture of his own from the wall and asked in a note written to one of his friends 1,200 lire for it. Half an hour later the messenger returned, saying that the gentleman would pay only 800 lire for it. Rubens was furious, threw the picture on the ground and stamped upon it,while the host was still more furious, as his hopes, through this "daub," to get money were dispelled. He wanted to put his guest out on the pavement immediately, when Rubens gave his word of honor that he would pay his debt within eight days. With these words Rubens hurried up stairs and locked the door. He left the room very seldom and never without taking the key with him. A week later he appeared before his host with a little hand trunk with these words: "I have kept my promise. Upon the table in my room you will find more money than 1 owe you. Farewell, sir host!" Then he left the inhospitable house with the mien of a grand seigneur, who had given rich alms. The tavern keeper hurried up the stairs to the artist's room. The door stood open and the mass of money which was spread upon the table met his gaze. Fourfold Louis, double Louis, dollars and half dollars lay there in gay con fusion. Naturally the good man thought he must quickly put his money in a safe place, but what astonishment and fury he showed when, upon touching a gold piece, he found that it was only painted! The miser, the tramp, had fooled him! But his anger lessened somewhat when he saw on the walls the rich clothing that had been left by the painter. From the sale of this he could cover a great part of the debt. He reached for a cherry colored velvet mantle—what disappoint ment! That, too, like the other gar ments and the glittering gold, was only painted! The unhappy host was pitied by all his friends who heard it. The story became further known and the painter's fame grew and spread. Distinguished people streamed to the modest tavern to hear of Rubens' gay trick from the host himself and see the painted clothing—the table had been put in the garret as the owner wanted it out of sight—and many a dollar was spent in the tavern for the purpose of seeing these things. One day a rich Englishman who doted on art was accidentally told of the de ceptive table by the tavern keeper. He asked to see the table, admired it and offered to give the host as much cash in French gold and silver coins as was painted on the table. Naturally the host accepted and was rid of this "dis agreeable" piece of furniture.—Philadel phia Times. Aldermm a* a Board of Directors. It would clear away much misconcep tion if the popular body in cities, instead of being spoken of and thought of as a local legislature, could be looked upon and considered as aboard of directors. One of the most important grants where in the powers of sr.ch a body in cities seem to pass beyond the functions of a board of directors is the right to adopt ordinances which are enforced by the police: but even as to this power it is to be borne in mind that city ordinances have no original authority. They are constantly declared invalid by the courts because they contravene statutes of the legislature or deal with matters not cov ered by the grant of power to the city corporation. The inferences to be drawn from this discussion are two. First, that the whole question as to what ought to be the business of the city and as to the best method of conducting this business is fairly open to discussion: sec ond, that the question is one involving good judgment only. It does not in volve the liberties of th» people or touch any of the inherent rights of citizenship. —Seth Low in Century. Getting oil from smouo. It appears that in Scotland there is a company which pays a certain amount yearly to a number of iron works for the privilege of collecting the smoke and gases from the blast furnaces. These are passed through several miles of wrought iron tubing, and as the gases cool there is deposited a considerable yield of oil one plant is reported to yield 25,000 gallons of furnace oil per week. The sum paid for this privilege is such as to be profitable, it is said, to both par ties. The oil thus obtained is distilled, and a considerable quantity of cresol, phenol and some other substances are procured from it, while the oil remain ing is used as an enricher of gas for illu minating purposes.—New York Sun. lie Paid the BUI*. She—You are always talking about the fashions. Now, honestly, do you think that you would know the latest fashion in hats if you were to enter a milliner's? He—Certainly. She-How? He (mei'uily)—Bylookingat the prices. -Exchange. A Bint to Tonng Writer*. We all know how to talk. There is ft certain number of words put on the tongue of every human being, just at the song is given to the canary bird or to the robin. But beyond the song these birds cannot go. And beyond the natu ral speech, or the words that nature gives to every one, thi illiterate human being cannot go. His vocabulary is lim ited until he becomes a student. Then he begins to widen and there is no near boundary line to its possibilities. The writer who imagines that he can give additional emphasis to a composition by the use of large words is greatly mistak en. The economy of the reader's atten tion is absorbed in understanding and applying these big words, and there is little of the mental energy left with which to digest the idea that these long words contain. The picture that is brought before his mental vision is there fore dim and uncertain. If the writer would give more promi nence to the idea and less to the verbal frame v.i other words, if he would use simple language which by contrast would bring out the idea, he would not only economize his reader's mental ener gy, but would benefit himself by mak ing himself more easily understood. The mind is not able to do more than one thing at a time and do it well. It can not at once delve into the mysteries of a many syllable word and comprehend the thought in a proper manner.—Chicago Post The Cobra and the Empty Can. The terrible cobra de capello, which is feared and venerated in India as a snake god, is occasionally caught napping when he has encroached on the territory of others. A resident in India says that he was one day much astonished by hearing a succession of reports, like the firing of a re volver, which issued from the "godown," or storeroom. As he opened the door a strange sight met his gazo. A cobra had managed to get into the room and had been attracted by an empty biscuit tin— in American parlance a tin cracker box —about 12 by 6, in which some crumbs were still remaining. The cover had not been well opened, and the edges were jagged. The cobra had pressed his head inside to lick up the crumbs, but he could not get it out again. The more he tried, the more diffi cult did it become. In his rage his hood expanded and was lacerated by the sharp edges of the tin, and upon this he began to lash about with his tail. Pop, pop, went bottles of champagne and beer these were the re ports which had been heard within, and they had given the signal which brought his executioners to the spot.—Youth's Companion. The Biglit Arm and Left Toot. The right arm is always a little larger than the left, but the left foot is almost always larger than the right, presumably because, while nearly every man uses his right arm to lift a weight or strike a blow, he almost invariably kicks with his left foot, while the lounger stands on hia left leg and lets his right fall easily, because he has learned by experience that this is the best attitude he can as sume to prevent lassitude and fatigue. This constant bearing of the weight on the left foot makes it wider than the right, and it often happens that a man who tries on a shoe on the right foot and gets a close fit has to discard the shoes altogether because he cannot endure the pain caused by the tightness of the left. If when riding on the street car you will take the trouble to notice, you will see that in laced shoes the gap is much smaller on the right foot than on the left, while with button shoes the buttons have to be set back ten times on the left shoe to once on the right. Fishing for Due a In India an ingenious scheme is prac ticed for taking ducks on a line, which is attached at one end to a flexible stick stuck up in the mud, the other extremity having a double pointed needle of bone attached to it. The latter is baited by stringing upon it some grains of corn. Presently along comes Mr. Duck, swal lows the needle and finds himself a cap tive the moment he tries to fly away. In old times the Cape Cod fishermen de pended largely for bait upon the sea fowl they took on their voyages. To catch them they threw out fishing lines with hooks on the ends, to which were at tached chunks of cod liver. The latter floated because of tho oil they contained, and murres. gulls and other birds swal lowing them were quickly pulled in, skinned and chopped up.—Interview in Washington Star. Printing by Dog Power. Printing machines are usually driven by steam or gas motors, but the machine which prints a certain newspaper in America is run by dog power. A large wheel about ten feet in diameter and two in width is connected with the driv ing rigger of the machine by means of a belt strips of wood, for foothold, are placed afoot apart on the inside of the wheel, where Joe, the journalistic dog, walks his weary round, and thus causes the wheel to revolve. Joe has run the press for about five years, and has faithfully earned his board and lodging, but it is now abont time for him to feel ill and "turn it up," being unable to con* tinue turning it rouni.—London Tit Bits. Indian Names. A station not very far from Pitts burg, on the Baltimore and Ohio rail road, has the good old English name of Soho. In announcing it there is no op portunity for the brakemen to disguise the word, as he is too apt to do with the names of other places. As a train neared the town not long ago the word was distinctly nhouted, and a passenger was heard to say to the man nharing his seat: "How many towns in this part of the country have Indian names? Just think of it—Soho, Monongahela and Du quesne, all wear together.—Youth's Com panion. Oases Ibr the Supreme Court. Bismarck Tribune: Two new oases were filed in the office of the elerk of the su preme court yesterday for review by that tribunal at Grand Forks next month. One was Joseph Cleary, appellant vs Eddy County respondent, and is an ac tion brought by Cleary to secure payment for office rent furnished the county. The board of commissioners disallowed the bill. The judge of the district court on appeal Boid it was all right so to aot and now Mr. Cleary is going to try it again in the court of last resort. Mr. Cleary is a well known attorney of the state and ap pears for himself, while E. W. Camp will look after the defense. The second action comes up from the court of Hon. Roderick Rose, from Fos ter county, and is entitled John C. Yeat man vs James King and wife, the County of Foster, James Murphy, treasurer of said county, and Wulter M. Moore, county auditor. This was an action brought to foreclose a real estate mort gage executed in the year 1887 by King to the plaintiff. In the year 1890 and 1891, King availed himself of the pro visions of the seed law passed by the legislature in 1890, and Foster county supplied him with wheat for seed pur poses on the premises incumbered by Yeatman's mortgage. The statute in question provides that the amount of the charge for the grain furnished shall be a tax on the land, if not paid, and shall be made good to the county in like manner as other taxes. In effect it becomes an incumbrance prior to the mortgage in debted ness. Judge Rose holds that such cannot be the fact that the seed lien is inferior to the prior mortgage and ad judged a sale of the premises in this or der of claims. The county appeals, and the question will be a very important one for the supreme court to hear. The aggregate of kindred claims in the state is large and if the decision of Judge Rose is affirmed many of the counties will have to pocket a large loss. Giving Boston a Tip. H. C. Southard of Fargo, president of the North Dakota World's Fair managers' is now visiting his old home in Boston Ho tells a reporter'for the Traveller tha "unless all signs fail the state of North 1 akota will make a wonderful exhibit There will be samples of grasses and various other things which are to be found in the 6tate. We have already a collection of between 70 and 80 varieties of grasses. One of the features of our grass display will be a sample which very much resembles timothy, that measures nearly 20 feet in length. Mr. Southard also told the good peo ple of New England what is a notorious and unfortunate fact, that "in North and South Dakota there is no question but what the wheat raisers have been cheat ed more or less, from the fact that North Dakota, especially, is the only country in the United States, that raises a grade of wheat known as No. 1 bard. Both Minnesota and eastern buyers take it and mix the hard with an inferior qual ity, which is afterward milled into Hour." Notice to Teachers.

A certain small town in Louisiana, and another in Mississippi, on the line of the Illinois Central It. li.. but a few years ago had absolutely no commercial im portance, and from them not a dollar's worth of produce was sold to a distant market. This season, however, it has re quired from one of them, an entire fruit refrigerator car every day for six weeks to transport its early crops to the north ern markets, while from ten to twenty car loads per day of vegetables were shipped during the season from the other This is but single illustration, and by no means the most forcible one that could be presented, of the rapid de\elop ment of certain sections of the south in a profitable agricultural district. There are many localities in that section, par ticularly in Tennessee, Mississippi and Louisiana,on or near the lino of the Illi nois Central Railroad, that, although as yet undeveloped, are capable of easy cultivation, and will grow the finest kind of fruit and vegetables. Lunds well adapted to growing early strawberries and grapes, of quality to bring fancy prices iu the market, can be obtained there very cheap—in some instances as low as SI per acre. The availability of the Illinois Central fast fmit and veget able trains for sending the crops to profitable markets adds but final weight to the security of its being a profitable enterprise to. engage in the development of these lands.
