Seven Incendiary Fire There Yester
day
OGDEN Julv SSeven fires is the
record last night the total loss amount
ing to nearly 100000
The first alarm was at 3 oclock
yesterday morning from the Sid
ney Stevens block on Washing
ton avenue a three story brick
containing a valuable stock of
luggies carriages agricultural imple
ments and harness Immediately ad
joining the building is the show yard
stocked with every description of ve
hicles and as the flames forked from
the building to the yard it was evident
that it was also doomed In the near
Tijinity there are a number of frame
buildings including the Newman
Brothers cornice works a frame cot
ta e a lane barn all of which are to
I
day in ruins
The opera house adjoining north is
mostlv damaged with smoke and the
furnishings are slightly damaged with
water but had it once caught fire the
destruction of the handsome Reed
hotel adjoining would have been ine
vitable and two of the most orna
mental blocks in the city would have
been ruined
While this fire was raging part of the
firemen were called to the Boyle Fur
niture companys building half a block
north The buildings wae not com
pletely destroyed
A small fire occurred at Chief Bin
fords residence opposite the fire de
partment but was extinguished before
any damage was done
Fire broke out about 4 oclock at
Hermans restaurant on Grant avenue
two rooms and the upper portion of the
building being burned
Fire was also discovered in the
cellar below Orson Risers saloon on
Washington avenue and the Palace
saloon on Washington was also in
danger of being destroyed but the
flames at both places were got under
control before damage to any extent
was done
A small fire at the depot was sub
due 1 before any damage was done
The loss sustained by Sidney Stevens
amounts to 75000 The stock is en
tirely demolished and the side walls
have partly tumbled down The front
walls are tottering aud the public are
kept at a distance to prevent them
from being injured should the walls
collapse Newman Bros loss amounts
to 57000 The loss on the opera house I
should it be found necessary to refresto
it owing to it being damaged with I
smoke will foot up to 5000 Boyle
Furniture company estimate their loss
at 310 000 and the losses sustained by
the other parties vary in amounts from
100 to 500
That tbe fires are the work of in
cendiarism there is not a question of
doubt Guests at the Heed hotel state
that they saw a burning torch thrown
into the Boyle companys warehouse
and the way in which the fire spread
at the Stevens block showed it had
been fired all around the building
mostintense excitement prevails
in the city The citizens are incensed
beyond measure andgave vent to their
pent up feelings in a meeting held in
the federal court room this afternoon
to arrange means for the protection of
the people and their property p
Resolutions were passed thanking
the national territorial and municipal
governments for the steps they had
taken to preserve law and order and
commending the newspapers in the
territory for their fearless expression of
opinion against riotousness
Over a hundred representative citi
zens and business men were sworn in
as special policemen to protect pro
perty and life during this terrible
seige
Education
Education has silently become the
one thing which all men who differ ever
so much in creed culture sect and race

SCENERY COMPARED
THE MAIN DIFFERENCES BETWEEN
ENGLISH AND AMERICAN
Tho One Is Everywhere Affected by Man
and Art Tlo Other Is Primeval
and Vir
gin Luxury May Suit English Scenery
but Not So With Us
Having lately visited England after a
long absence my mind since my return
has been busy with the subject of the re I
lations between our scenery and that of
the old world I visited a dull part of
Hampshire On leaving the house where
I was staying it was necessary to gri
up to an early breakfast to catch a train
Two young soldiers very pleasant and
friendly fellows who went away at the
same time were in the cab with me
Reference was made to the scenery and
one of them who had been in America
said Yon Americans may not always
say you admire England but in your
hearts you know there is nothing like
it I looked out of the cab window at
the flat aud very rolled out landscape
cut up into squares and plots by iron
fences which however
with its
sparse
oaks standing here and there was not
without a classic grace and thought of
the fresh and magic outlines of the Vir
ginia mountains But trio honr mna
much too early and too drowsy to allow
of any expression of
dissent
It is an
old question that between the scenery
of the two worlds It is simple enough
however with an obvious answer Here
it is primeval and virgin nature there
nature affected by man and art
The difference betweenEuropean and
American trees and woodlands is sig
nificant of this in
Early Uuptember an i
acquaintance took mo tc taok jitra re
markable oak on hisT plico in Essex
wmcn ne said had been thought by some
persons to be a relic of the ancient Brit
ish forest This oak which was not very
high threw its powerful arms straight
out in nil directions
over a wide space
of gIo1pa h al rnnld
no4
It s0 h r r mew unrhs
before in June perhaps I had seen in
Tennessee a good deal of a forest which
was almost virgin The trees went
straight upward to a great height the
boles being clean of branches a long
distance from the ground and the leaf
age scant except at the top where it re
ceived the sun I rode into the middle
of this forest The trees were often so
close together that it would have been
hard for a horse to go between thorn
and my horse followed the bed of a
stream which was so shallow that it
scarcely f more than wet his fetlocks the
rhododendrons being very thick on each
side of me Halting in the midst of the
level floor of the forest it was an im
pressive scene which I found The pale
lofty trunks stqpd everywhere parallel I
and with a stately decorum and regular
ity except where half way up the ad
jacent mountain side some tumbling
trees leaning at angles against their
surrounding fellows which had arrest
ed them in falling varied the universal
propriety with a noble confusion the
gray trunks looking like mighty fallen
pillars of a ruined temple
It is true that our scenery is not very
rich in its associations of human history
This source of interest we have here
only to a slight degree But the land
cape has its own history Is it not well I
tQ consider that history Is not scenery
made more impressive by the study of
those sublime changes which have pre
pared the world which we see and may
not the disclosures of men of science so
far as the unlearned arc capable of com
prehending them be brought to the serv
ice of the sense of natural beauty
Another contrast there may be in tho
scenery of the two lands There is this
to he said of English sceneryit is suit
able to the luxury and comfort pf Eng
lish country life It is appropriate to
the English fleshpots There are plenty
of country houses throughout England
in which material comforts are of tho
best and which at certain seaspns poll
tain much agreeable company of both
sexes I had some experience of such a
house in Surrey The library was excel
lent For a wonder the weather was
good the ephemeral British sunshine
remaining all day on the southern walls
and really lavish among those flowers
of the garden you do not know by name
Easily detained by such an existence
you are not inclined to anything more
active than some kind of pleasant read
ing and are likely to loso your place at
that while your gaze rests upon the
hills to the west To such a life and
such a state of mind tho vague soft as
pect of the Surrey hills was most suita
ble two impalpable ranges of hills al
luring to the eyes Essences they seem
ed rather than substance or matter
and unreal save in their gentle emer
ald coloring And they were always ly
ing there quivering as hi a dreama
mirage which did not go away
If there is an agreement between lux
ury and English scenery my sentiment
is that on the contrary luxury does not
snit our scenery An iron foundry
strange to say does no ifirm A forge
a factory by the side on a pond filled
with water liliesl have now in mind
the New England lands pethese are
not unsuitable But a fine house in
some way is and my ser 50 of incongru
ity extends as well to hose mansions

Hardy Climbing Rosen
In the prairie roy we have a class or
hardy native climbing roses often found
growing wild in Michigan and the west
ern states which we may plant with
confidence Two of the more commonly
known roses of this class which are fa
vorites everywhere on account of their
hardiness free blooming aud the fact of
their flowers appearing just after fa
other varieties are nearly over are Queen
of the Prairie and Baltimore Belle vari
eties raised in tho
year 1843 by a rose
grower named Feast in Baltimore from
seeds of the wild prairie rose crossed
with some European variety These two
tho former red and the latter white
when grown near each other on the same
porch or with intertwining branches
heighten each others beauty by con
trast Both are of rapid growth and
may bo employed to advantage for cov
ering unsightly objects as walls ole

most desirable roses of the prairie class

Ancient Musical i Instruments I
illl nfTJfi iedis faIn
f sh t i belong to past
centuries They lie silently in the glass
cases The strings of mandolins and
lutes that made sweet music in days
gone by are broken and twisted and
he fingers that once swept them have
passed away but still the air seems
trembling with melody Imagination
pictures the banquet hall the summer
nights when the troubadour sang songs
under his ladyloves window or the
Bedouin camp in the desert where ths
flute and guitar were played during the
evening hour of repose There are in
struments here of all characters = rude
violins and banjos fashioned by savage I
hands and dainty lyres inlaid with gold
and mother of pearl instruments which
have played thoir part in ancient cere
monies in faraway India and China in
the castles of the middle ages and in the
African wilderness It is interesting to
note that all nations havo tried to make
instruments to please the eye as well
as to produce sweet sounds The stringed
instruments and flutes of savage races
are often grotesque and even ugly to
civilized eyes but the poor savage did
his best He carved his instruments as
Well as ho could and also adorned it
with whatever precious trinkets he had
