WIND AND FIRE Cause Bismarckers to Pas's a Rest less Night—The Custer House Gutted. ,]Prom Friday's Daily.] Bismarck citizens passed rather a rest less night last night. The thermometer had not got lower than 85 in many houses by 10 o'clock, so that sleep was difficult. About 2 o'clock there was a sudden drop of several degrees in the temperature, and a heavy bank of clouds in the south west began to rapidly overspread the sky. In a few minutes the wind swept down from the north and made the build ings shake. It howled and shrieked in the trees and around corners and not many were able to sleep through it. In most of the houses and hotels the upper stories were deserted, in ca6e the blow should prove to bo of a cyclonic nature, and there was some excitement among the ladies. The Sheridan house rocked a little, and most of the guests were awakened and donned their clothes for awhile, but returned to bed when the storm grew no worse. At the Custer house a lamp was left burning in a room over the dining room, and the window to the north was left open while the occupants went down stairs to the office. It is supposed that the wind blew the lamp off the bureau, but in any case afire started in some way in that room about 3:30 a. m. and fanned by the wind quickly eat its way through the roof of the oil in the rear. The alarm was turned in and quickly re sponded to, and three lines of hose laid, but for nearly an hour the efforts of the' firemen seemed to have but little effect. The wind continued to blow strongly fron the northeast, and carried the burn ing cinders in clouds over the barn on the corner of Fifth and Main, and over the Sheridan house. For a time it look ed as though the firemen would be un able to prevent the flames crossing the street, in which case it would have been almost impossible to prevent the whole block being wiped out. A little before 5 o'clock the wind began to die down, and the firemen began to fight the fire at closer quarters. The roof of the ell fell in over the diuing room, and the roof of the three-story front part was burning well, and the flames had a good hold in the rooms at the south of the second story. But when the hose was taken up on the veranda and the stream directed through the windows directly on the flames, they were soon brought under control, and soon after 5:30 most of the spectators went home. The inside of the building is practi cally gutted, and Mr. and Mrs. McGowan had time to save hardly any of their furniture. Most of the guests in the house managed to get upstairs and bring down their grips, but to some of them the loss will be severe. Nearly every body was still downstairs when the fire started, but Mrs. McGowan had gone to bed after the wind storm, and when she first smelled smoke, Tom thought it was from the, lamp in their room which the wind had blown out. Five minutes later, when they were aroused, they had to get out in a hurry, JMrs. McGowan hardly having time to don her clothing. The building and contents were insured in S. M. Pye's agency for $5,000, carried by the following companies: National Hart ford, 81,000 Northern Assurance, 81,000: Royal, 81,000 St. Paul Fire and Marine, 81,000 British America, 81,000.

David Karlson, the 14-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. John A. Karlson, was drowned Tuesday) afternoon !in a pond in the pasture near August Trigg's place in Gibbs township. Mr. Karlson and the children were returning home from the Fourth of July celebration in the city and stopped at Trigg's place in the afternoon for a rest. The son David, with some other younger boys, went to the pond in the pasture, some distance from the house, to take a bath. From what the other boys say of the accident, the unfortunate boy must have been taken with cramps, and fell in the deep water. He tried to help himself, but could not, and the younger boys were unable to help him, and ran for assist ance. When the older people at the house had been informed of what had happened and had reached the scene, .the boy had been in the water for some time, and although the body was at once recovered and every possible means employea, resuscitation was impossible. The body of the boy was taken home. The unfortunate boy was bright and intelligent, the youngest child of a fam ily of five. His death was a sad ending to the Fourth for Mr. and Mrs. Karlson and they will have general and sincere sympathy in their loss. CASTOR IA For Infants and Children.

The author o£ "Little Journeys to the Homes of American Statesmen" tells a story of the civil war, when the days dragged gloomily in anticipation of news from the front and when grief was like ly to overtake any who had boys in the ranks. He says: One night the postmaster was reading aloud the names of the killed at Gettys burg, and he ran down to the name of a youth we knew. The boy's father sat there on a nail keg, chewing a straw. The postmaster, for his sake, tried to shuffle over the name and hurry on to the next. "Hi!" said the father. "Wha-what's that you said?" Tliere was nothing to do but face the issue, and the postmaster repeated with a forced calmness: "Killed—Snyder, Hiram." The boy's father stood up with a jorU. Then he sat down. Then he stood up again, staggered to the door and fum bled for the latch like a blind man. "God help him!" said the postmaster, wiping his eyes with his red handker chief. "He's gone to tell the old wom an.' The minister preached a funeral ser mon for the boy, and on the little pyra mid that marked the family lot in the burying ground they carved the inscrip tion: "Killed in honorable battle, Hiram Snyder, aged 19." Not long afterward strange, yellow bearded men in. faded blue began to ar rive. Great welcomes were given them, and many a big gathering was held in their honor. At one such gathering a ghost appeared—a lank, saffron ghost, ragged as a scarecrow, wearing the cape of a cavalryman's overcoat, with no coat beneath. The apparition was a youth of about 20, with a downy beard all over his face and a countenance well mellowed with coal soot, as he had ridden several days on the top of a freight car near the en gine. The ghost was Hiram Snyder. We forgave him the shock of surprise he had caused us—all except the minis ter who had preached his funeral ser mon. Years afterward I. heard the min ister remark in a solemn and aggrieved tone: "Hiram Snyder is a man who cannot be relied upon." Like a Lady. "Frances," said that little girl's mam ma, who was entertaining callers In the parlor, "you came down stairs so noisily that you could be heard all over the house. You know how to do it better than that. Now go back and come down the stairs like,a lady." Frances retired and after a lapse of a few minutes re-entered the parlor. "Did you hear me come down stairs this time, mamma?" "No, dear. I am glad you came down quietly. Now don't let me ever have to tell you again not to come down noisily, for I see that you can come down like a lady the second time, while the first time you made so much noise." "The last time I slid down the banis ters," explained Frances.—Harper's Ba zar. LADIES CAN WEAR SHOES One size smaller after using Allen's Foot-Ease, a powder to be shaken into the shoes.

Captain Bryan Got 930,000 For That Job, but Ever After Misfortune and Bad Lnelc Followed Him Until He Finally Died Penniless, After losing every cont of the $30,000 which he received for aiding Boss Tweed to escape from the country Jumes Bryan died penniless at his homo in Now York. Bryan was a sea captain and was fairly prosperous until the day when he took the fugitive Tweed aboard his ship and car ried him away from New York harbor. Then his misfortune began. Bryan did not know who his mysterious passenger was to be, and he did not care. That was why he was chosen to do the Irork. Ho had the reputation of being the most fcnrlcss man who ever sailed a ship out of the port of New York. It was his boast that he feared neither man, God nor the devil. On one occasion, when a terri ble storm was raging and all shipmasters bad been warned not to leave port, ho, to use his own words, "sailed out in the name of tho devil." Bryan's widow told tho story of that run for liberty with apparent pleasure. Bho was as proud of tho captain's daring as he had been of it himself. She told it Just as ho had told it to her. She said: "Bryan'had just come into port on the Belle. He found that Michael Murray and John Norton, who owned Norton's point, Coney Island, had already cleared the Frank Atwood in his name and that she was ready to go out. "He was told that he was to take two passengers to Cuba and that there would be a good thing in it for him. He did not know who they were or what part of Cuba they wanted to go to, and he did not ask any questions. It was not his habit to ask hanl questions In such matters. "He dropped down the bay and lay to off Norton's point. The tug Dauntless was alongside, and, to save time, he did not anchor, tho tug keeping the ship steady against the tide. "Tho captain went ashore in a small boat, leaving the ship in charge of the mate. They had arranged a signal with a revolving light, which was shown by both tho ship and tho boat, so that each could tell where tho other was In the darkness. "There was no moon, and the clouds cutoff tho starlight and made it one of the blackcst nights that had ever been known on the bay. A signal light on shore show ed the captain whero to landi and a few passwords agreed upon beforehand told him that he had found his passengers. Two muffled figures stepped into the boat, and they wero rowed back to the ship. The passengers went below, and the tug took the ship through the channel and returned. No timo was lost in get ting out to sea. "In tho morning Bryan recognized Tweed by his pictures, which every one had seen. Tweed told Bryan to keep his mouth shut, and ho would bo well re warded. Bryan did keep his mouth shut, and Tweed gavo liim $30,000 before he left the ship. Tho Frank Atwood had been cleared for some South American port, I forget which, and could not go into Santiago, Cuba, whero Tweed wanted to land. "Bryan ran his ship toward the harbor as though he was going to sail in, and when near shore a small boat rowed alongside That had been arranged by Tweed's friends in Santiago, and Tweed and his secretary, Samuel Hunt, got Into the small boat. "Then Bryan turned and put out to sea. A Spanish gunboat chased him and fired several shots at him, but could not catch him. "Tweed went under the name of John Secor and Samuel Hunt under the name of William Hunter. Bryan heard that they had some trouble with the Spaniards when they landed, but a little money fixed it all right. "Tho police got wind of tho thing somo way and were looking for Brynn, so he had to stay away from New York for three years. Ho lived during that time in Mo bilo under tho namo of John Smith. "Then Tweed's friends fixed things up I all right, and Bryan was allowed to como back. He took tho $30,000 which Tweed gavo him and built the Flying Scud. He silled her for awhile and sold her for lb,t)00. •'Then ho bought an interest in four or five other ships and sold them out again, but somehow always seemed to lose money on every trado. "He bought an interest in the Joe Kelly and was shipwrecked in her oil San Salva dor. Then ho bought an interest in the W. and H. Witlierspoon and was ship wrecked in her off Hattcras. He did not lose a man in cither shipwreck, every ono of tho crew getting off safely, but he lost a lot of money. "Then ho bought a third interest in an other ship, and he and tho other two own ers got into a quarrel, and neither would let tho other do anything with her, and she lay over at tho Erio basin for a couple of years until tho dockage ate her up. Sho was no good, and the insurance companies would not take her. She was sold finally, and Bryan's share was only $350. Tho man who bought her took her to sea, and she sank. "The $350 was soon gone, and Bryan had to go to work for other owners. His last trip was on tho Concordia, and it was his worst. Sho belonged to Simon How ard, who lived in St. Andrews, on the Venezuelan coast. Bryan took charge of her at Charleston and sailed her to West Indian ports and back to Charleston. He was on her S% years and never got paid a cent. Ho seized the ship at St. Andrews for bis pay, and sho was tied up. "Tho matters got mixed up in the courts end dragged along so long that he was most starved. Finally a captain who knew him brought him home. "Bryan got William J. Sharkey out of the country after tho murder of Robert Dunn in 1875. That was when he owned the Flying Scud. He did not havo much troublo then. He just took Sharkey with him when he was going to Cuba. Ho did not make anything out of it either. I un derstand that Sharkey is living on a plan tation in Cuba now." Bryan died from dropsy after a short ill ness.—New York Press. Queer Verdict*. Tho recent verdict of a coroner's jury that a man who had been lynched waa "frozen to death" recalls another queer verdict in a similar case. A negro had been lynched on the outskirts of a small town. He was found swinging to a limb, with one of his legs broken. After view ing the body the jury returned thi« ver dict: "That the deceased came to his death from a broken leg, whloh happened to him while he was swinging in the plonie grove."—Atlanta Constitution.
