The elevator contained about 400,000 bushels of grain, and the employes were working tonight to hurry out ti sixty thousand bushel order "W. J. Parks, manager of the elevator, was In the building with his daughter Grace and sons Harold and Hamilton. Parks was blown out at the second story window -a distance of a hundred feet. Grace ran out of the building, but died from "burns. Harold, four years old,-is in the ruins. None o the remains of the killed have been found except the body of Grace Parks.

The in eurance on the grain cannot be definitely learned, but it Is said to be about 5300,000. The firemen had a big battle m tfteir hands. They recognized that they could do nothing with the building, so they de voted their efforts to saving the elevator and manufacturing establishments In the vicinity, and one of the bridges of the Lake Shore Railroad. While firemen were working near the fire, a portion of the roof fell, slipped to one side and with it the body of a man. Desperate efforts were made to get the body, but the intense heat drove the fire men back. The body lay shrivelling with the heat In plain view of thousands of spectators. Some of the men killed were prominent In the city. Frank Van Hoosen was chief grain inspector and had been in the busi ness for years. -The firemen are still fighting the lire at midnight. The switching crews of four engines, working on the cars which were being loaded, were In the -elevator when the explosion occurred, but escaped with se rious burns. STARTED IN A SAW MILL. Fire Destroyed $5,000 Worth of Property on Water Street. A, fire -which resulted in the destruction of the office, sawmill, and two-story sta ble of Carter & Clark, at Tenth and Wa ter Streets southwest; the office of Tay lor Brothers, tugboat -contractors, and the boathouse of H. C. Biscoe started short'y before 1 o'clock this morning in the boiler room In the northwest corner of the saw mllL It was discovered before it had gainel much headway and an alarm was prompt ly turned in by Policeman Kenney, of the Fourth Precinct, and Special Officer Mel- llngton. Owing to the inflammable mate- i rial of which the buildings were con- 1 structed, however, and the presence in the stable loft of a quantity of hay, the flames spread rapidly and before any en gine reached the scene the sawmill was completely enveloped. Tie firm of Carter & Clark, which Is composed of James O. Carter and L. A. Clark, used ihe sawmill, which was a j three-story- frame building, ior sawing , and splitting cord wood. Their stable, al- I so of frame, adjoined the sawmill on ! the west, and on the east was the office . of Taylor Brothers. Mr. BIscoe's boat house was in the rear. The aggregate damage will. It is thought, exceed 55.000. partly covered by Insurance. Three horses, which were In the stable when the fire started, were cremated. A second alarm was sent in. bringing several more engines to the scene. The sawmill was -a mass of flames and there was no hope of saving it, and the chief ordered his men to turn their attention to the adjoining buildings. They succeed ed in saving the stable, but the office on the east end of the mill was destroyed. The mill was fitted up with a valuable plant, which was so badly damaged that It will almost all have to be replaced with new machinery. A large quantity of wood, which was stored in the mill, was burned. While the fire lasted It was an unusual ly brilliant one, lighting up the entire southwestern part of the city. It quick ly died out, however, after the fire de partment began work. "WILL TJE BURIED TODAY. The RcinninK of Capt. Capron Will Ret In ArlinKton. The funeral of Capt.

Bridgeport Corm., Sept. 0. The mys- tery ofrTellnw MUlpond is no nearer so lution today than It was when the dis membered and mutilated body of the young woman was found. The New Haven clew, on which the police worked all day yesterday, nas thus far develop ed litle of importance. E. B. Van Keurcn, who lived for a time in a New Haven boarding house, was found by the po-' lice. He came here, and, after viewing the severed head, positively idientifled it as that of a girl he had met a New Haven boarding house two years ago. He did not know the n ame, but promised to find out Van Keuren's identification was the sixth since the body was found. The police hope something may develop from It, but they are not confident. The whereabouts of Dr. Nancy Guil ford, and the caute of her flight, are in teresting subjects -of discussion here. Attorney Kline, who has her interests in charge, says her disappearance Is not caused by any connection with the Mill Pond case, but is the result of causes reaching farther back. Attorney Kline's statement is borne out by a letter from Dr. Gill, husband of "'Old Nance," who Is In the State prison, which was found today. The let ter was written to his daughter, Eudora In which he refers to some mysterious persecution his wife was subjected to, He says that she must submit to the In evitable, and make the best of circum stances which she may. He advises that everything possible be sold and turned into money. The police will not talk of the letter. The only inference that can be drawn from it is that the danger from some quarter was hanging over Dr. Guilford, and to ward it oft her husband suggests flight. The .police have been informed that Old Nance has sailed for England. The$ still say they do not want .her. DIVED AND CAUGHT BIG PISH. A Man Cnjifure. ti Jie-PoTinl Prise "With II1h Hmiils.
