One-half of the world does not know how the other half lives, nor do the well-fed thousands in this prosperous city, who daily consult their menu of many expensive and rar courses, com prehend that many other thousands of hard-working, active, healthy, ener getic, bustling people live for a whole day upon the price of a plate of oysters In a fashionable restaurant. Let ono man a letter carrier speak for him self: "I have three meals a day coffee, cakes, and either ham or beana or corned beef und beans at each meal, at a cost of not more than 20 cents a meal. They give you bread and butter with the meat, and a fellow has plenty to eat in three such meals. If a fellow Is hard pushed he can get along on 32 cents a day with two meals, with meat beans, bread and cofTee at each. I have known chaps, who have been Idle for a long time, to live upon twenty cents a day corned beef, beans, bread and but ter, and water for one meal, and pie and coffee at the other in the evening. A fellow could live all wintor on those two meals If he didn't have to juggl cases and barrels and bales of cotton or do heavy work. Thus it may be seen that a man needn't starve who has $1.40 a week to upend on food." New YofK Recorder. FIRE AT lilt KM EX. WORK OF INCENDIARIES - RADIA TOR VORKS BURNED TO THE GROUND.

Oct. 11. lMi:,.--At o'clock this morning the R. A: . Ity.. operator at this place was startled on looking out of the window by discover ing a small blaze in the Radiator Works at this place. He immediately turned in an alarm and the lire department responded promptly but were unable to do much owing to their discovery at this point that the hose cart had been robbed of all wrenches and other tools to work with. The night gang left the shops at 1 o'clock a. m. and there were n signs of tire in any part of the building at that time. It was about o'clock when the operator first discovered a small blaze, but before the department arrived at the scene it had spread to every depart ment, showing that all arrangements had been made for a rapid destruction of the property, and the whole plant was destroyed. Nothing was saved but the books which were in the office. The oiliee was a small building adjoining the works proper and withstood the terrible heat for a long time but finally it too was consumed, but not until the books and all valuable papers hau Leen carried out and taken to a place of safety. There is much indignation l'elt here as a large number of men are thrown out of work just at the time of the year when they most need it. On further investigation it has been found that entrance was gained at the lire department building through a window and the fire apparatus was robbed of all tools before the lire was started showing that th work was carefully planned. The loss will aggre gate 8120,000, while the only insurance was 82,500 on the building. Later. The stockholders of the Radiator Co., held a meeting this morn ing at which it was decided to rebuild at once. There will be a citizens meet ing held this evening to levis" means of assisting the Radiator Co., in re- building. WiV Ki-lxiiltl. From .Saturday's Daily.

Many of the former employes expressed their desire to donate from one to three weeks work on the new building. The company will rebuild at once on a larger and more convenient scale than ever. 31 ii il e ro ii s 1 y - :! u 1 1 e I . Richard Ridgeville, of Lankville, was murderously assaulted on his own prop erty last evening by his half-brother, Schuyler McRroom. The attack seems to be the result of a family feud, Me Rroom's mother being the third wife and surviving widow of Ridgeville's father. Ridgeville, who had lived in Chicago for some time, came out and took pos session of his property about a year ago and since that time claims to have been constantly annoyed by the McRrooms. Mr. Ridgeville asserts that la&t evening he was coming home, keeping to the right of the road in a little foot path when he saw McRroom approaching from an opposite direction and feared trouble, but made up his mind to keep his own side of the road, saying nothing unless he was assailed but that when McRroom came up to him he clung to his, Ridgeville's, side of the road and they came into collision. This infuri ated Mclh.com, who, with an oath de clared he would teach him to give a man half of the road. With that he turned and went to the house and se curing a revolver, started back, but Ridgeville, to avotd trouble, took a course across his own property, leaving the road so as not to meet him. lie says that McRroom, seeing his inten tion, ran down a cross road and headed hint oil, and that when he came up to him exclaimed, "D n you! I'll kill you." At the same time pulling a re volver, but instead of using it, threw two heavy stones at him one striking him on the side of the head making a fearful woum1, while the other struck him on the left hand badly bruising it. A brother of Mc Rroom's also came out with a ball club to reinforce him, and Mr. Ilidgevillo believing that it was a case of get away or getkilled.took to his heels and succeeded in getting away from them. The matter has been placed in the hands of Judge W. R. I less as attorney and will bo brought before the grand jury. Marriage Licenses. Clement L. Packer and Anna Kuhn. THE HORSE IN HISTORY.

EXCISE IN ENGLAND. Tlie Laws Are Strictly Itnforcrd. Int Arc Liberal in a Kij;!it IMreet i. The hours for closing taverns or sa loons on Sunday vary in different parts of the kingdom, greater opportunities being given for drinking in London than in the provinces. In the London metropolitan district all taverns, res taurants, hotel bars and, in fact, every place where liquor of any description can bo purchased, must remain e!ord from midnight on Saturday until 1 in tho afternoon of Sunday. Then the house can open and do business until C p. m, when they must close again and remain so until i in the afternoon. Then they can open ami remain in full blast until 11 at night, but at that hour sharp to the niinui.' every public house door must be tightly closed and every customer off the premises. At 5 in the morning of a week-day the t: verns can open, although the more respectable houses do not take advantage of that permission until two or three hours later in the morning. Closing time on a week-day is 12:30 a. m., except on Saturday nights, when it is sharp mid night. Christmas Day and Good Friday are the only two other days in the year which are treated as Sundays, so far as the license law goes. The four hank holidays, which are legal national holi days, are the greatest days of all the year for the ublic houses. A Natural I-'inaiirier. A group were talking a few evenings ago about some remarkable exhibitions of "nerve," when one said: "I think I saw about as 'nervy a display of im pudence as I ever heard of in a cigar store in this city a few days ago. A j'oung man came in and asked for two ten-cent cigars, throwing a half dollar on the counter. The clerk gave him the Roods, and tendered him in change thirty cents a nickle and a Canadian twenty-five cent piece. The customer object to taking a Canadian coin when the clerk said: 'Well, sir, I am perfectly willing to give you American money, il you prefer it, but suppose you first give me an American half dollar for this Canadian fifty-cent piece you eave me.'

"That's all right," rejoined another, "but I had an experience with that same monkey wherein he displayed in telligence. I was by the cage smoking one day, and thought to annoy him by blowing smoke in his face. I was much surprised to lind that instead of being annoyed he enjoyed it, as was evi denced by his edging up as near me as possible to receive the smoke in larger volumes. Soon he began scratching himself at the point where most of the smoke came against him. When I had smoked one side for a few minutes, he would turn squarely round to have the other side treated in the same way. Then he sat up directly in front of me and received tho smoke squarely in the face and neck. I don't know whether he held his breath, but he did not cough, sneeze, or wince a particle. To com plete tho job he then sat with his back toward me, ami it would have done you good to have seen him throw his hind feet over his hack and scratch.

Gor. ltrown S-!U His Homestead at I.rss Tlnii H.'If Its Value. SpringiieUl. tho homestead of Gov. Frank Krown. in Carroll county, near Sykesvilie, Maryland, has been agreed upon by the Hoard of Managers of the second Hospital for the Insane of the State of Maryland as the site for the new hospital, to be erected under the act of lSt'4, apropriating $75,000 for a site and buildings and ?25,000 as a maintenance fund. The purchase price is 130,000. The area required is 530 acres or more, including the historic old Patterson mansion and other build ings, which, it is estimated, could not not be duplicated for less than $100,000. The buildings include the Patterson mansion, another spacious dwelling, with all outbuildings, granaries, green houses, and barns, which are supplied with water from a stone reservoir on the property. The roads through the property are all macadamized, and the estate is thoroughly fenced with post and rail fence. The property was for merlj owned by George Patterson, de ceased, uncle of Gov. Iirown, who was lavish in his expenditures, and made tho property what he termed it, "a sheet of living green." It is one of the finest estates in Maryland, and, perhaps, in the country. Gov. Brown said that nothing would have induced him to dis pose of the property, but the recent death of Mrs. Drowu. which, in a large measure, broke up his plans for th? fu ture. Springfield is one of the historic estates of Maryland. Over the soft lawns and in the picturesque woodland walks once strolled Elizabeth Tatter son, wife of Jerome Ponaparte, who was the daughter of William Patterson, and a Maryland belle in the present cen tury's early years.

"I beg your pardon," he said, very politely; but the man of the hurt toe scowled and in an undertone muttered curses. The innocent offender again apolo gized. "Yes, but that don't help my toe any;" and he growled some more in an undertone. Nearby passengers began to smile. "I begged your pardon, didn't I?" said the other man. "Yes, but my toes hurts just the same," was the reply in an ugly tone. Then the other man's dander rose and in very forcible language he said: "Now, look here. I accidentally steppe.l on your foot and I apologized for it. If you say another word about it I will give you this instead of my foot (show ing his doubled list), and it will land right in your face." This warning was not taken, for he continued to talk about the clumsiness of some people. Suddenly the passen gers were electrified by seeing a fist shoot out, and the growler lay In the street as the ear passed on. Nobody said anything, but some thought it wasn't wise to talk too much.
