The pastors of the city and others are dis
cussing the proposal to change the general
prayer-meeting night in Springfield from
Wednesday evening to Friday evening. Some
of the pastors complain that Wednesday
night, being in the middle of the week, ren
ders it impossible for them to leave the city,
between Sundays, without being absent lrom
their most important meeting; whereas, if it
was held Friday evening, they could be gone
nearly all the week and get back in time to
attend it. Then it is uiged that school ehil

If the Lagonda Hotel were a human the
saying "not born to be drowned" would be
eminently applicable. On the first day of this
year there was a hot lire, catching from a
grata, in the wing fronting on High street
This morning at 5:30 o'clock the north wing,
in which are located the kitchen, servants'
quarters, etc., and which was pretty well
gutted aboit three years ago, was again in
flames tesulting in serious damage, but noth
like so disastrous as would have been the
case had the fire department been a whit
less prompt in responding to the
alarm or less energetic and well bandied after
reachine the scene of action. The men to be
credited with one of the best pieces ot work
at fire-fighting ever done here. Jfi ar the hour
named the day house-mun, who has only been
on duty a few days in the house, called the
pastry woman, also a new arrival, and as she
was unacquainted with the house, undertook
to pilot her to the kitchen, which is on the
second floor, above the hotel proper, in the
north wing. The instant she entered she re
marked, "Tfiis place is on fire," aad told the
house-man, who called Mr. Grove, the clerk
on duty. That gentleman found such to be
the fact, and instantly telephoned the Central
engine house, where box 8 was pulled in.
As the machine left the house the flimes
could be seen leaping high in the
air from the high ventilator in the roof,
and it was thought at the moment the fire
was in the telephone exchange, next door to
the hotel. On arriving and seeing the job
cut out for ihem Chief Simpson summoned
the force from the southern house and soon
bad five or six streams pouring in from the
Lowreys, attached at Limestone and Market
streets on High. In about an hour from the
time the fire started the out-tap was sounded,
the entire wing having been drenched
thoroughly. Upon examination this morning
Chief Simpson thinks the fire started in a
coal-bin at the base of '.he ventilator, next the
range, shooting up the shaft and spreading
forward under the Mansard roof ot the top
floor which isMevoted to the servants' sleeping
rooms. The house-man says that, when he
saw the fire in the kitchen below it
was in the ceiling above a gas-jet
over a light shelf twenty feet from the bin.
The flames made their way rapidly between
the Hoars and ceiling and under the root
nearly the whole length of the wing, and
were checked near a short flight of stairs con
necting with the main building fronting on
Limestone street. The damage by fire is con
fined mostly to the top floor and roof, but the
rooms below contain pools ol water which
drips from above constantly. There was
some alarm among the guests in the houfe
and hasty preparations for departure until it
was found the fire would be confined to the
wing in which it originated, when most
songht their beds agavi to finish out the
broken morning nap. There were few or
none of the ludicrous scenes which occurred
at the time of the little affair a lew weeks
ago, for the reason that the trouble was not
in a part of the building occupied by guests.
Breakfast was served to all guest, of the
house at the Arcade Hotel, and dinner also,
but clerk McGonigal was of opinion it might
be possible to have tea as U3ual and that by
tomorrow, certainly, everything would be in
running order again. Men were set to work
at once to clean away the debris and water
trom the kitchen and straighten things up,
and the engine room in the basement was not
damaged in the least.
Chief Simpson desires to return the thanks
of the department to the citizens who assisted
ia raising ladders and conducting the long
lines of hose to points where streams were re
quired, some of these lines being run over
the roofs of or through three-story buildings.
His estimate of the loss upon careful exami
nation this morning is $1,000 lo $1,500,
which is covered by insuraace in Hosterman's
A package of $1,000 worth of receipts lying
upon the shelf under the gas bracket in
the kitchen is missing, one of the attend
ants says, and is probably lost A lantern
belonging to the firemen is also missing from
where it was placed. If found it should be
returned to the Central house.
In connection with the Chidesters. some
choice duets, quartettes and solos will be
rendered at St. Paul M. E. church Thursday

The Oliver Chilled Plow Concern to Leave
efouth llend and Seeking n Locatiou
tVh) Not Come to Springfield, Ohio?
The Globe-Republic is informed by parties
evidently knowing whereof they affirm, that
the immense manufacturing concern known
as the Oliver chilled plow works, of South
Bend, Indiana, is about to be removed from
that city, owing to some dissatisfaction with
the location on the part of the proprietors. It
is said that representatives of the company
have quietly visited, recently, Indianapolis,
Ind., and Toledo, Ohio, for the purpose ol
looking up a new site, but without reaching
any decision as yet. It is sug
gested that Springfield might be
able to offer superior inducements
to those of the citie3 named or any
others, and that, if the matter was taken
hold of, Springfield fashien, promptly, ener
getically and practically, the prize may be
within our grasp and the city given the big
gest boom in its history. At least the pro
prietors might be invited to visit us and ex
amine for themselves as to local facilities in
manufacturing on a large scale. The Oliver
plow works are, perhaps, the largest in the
world in that trade, employing two thousand
men; sometimes a larger number; and re
quiring a million dollars capital and more.
The suggestion is thrown out, by requsst of
some ot our capitalists, for what it it worth,
and if any action is to be takes it should be
done at once.
Plow makinf is the only leading branch of
agricultural implement manufacture not rep
resented here extensively, reference being had
of course in this statement to breaking and

cultivators of various kinds being turned out

There has been unexampled activity all

than the usual stir on the part of those ele
ments which may be said to have a penchant
for polities, all of which presage3a large turn

Lord itaroa'i1 Touching Picture of HUOirn
Ileftpulr and WrcfchedneM.
In June, 1021, tho disgraced lord
chancellor retired to the stately house,
now in ruin, in Gorhambury park, of
which ho was tho owner. Ho had plead
ed guilty to twenty-three charges of
bribery. In one case he had received
from a suitor gold buttons wortli 0;
in a third, a diamond ring worth 500
or i-'GOO; in a fourth, a suit of hangings
worth 160. From some London apoth
ecaries lie accepted ambergris and a
gold taster, and ho took from certain
French merchants 1,000. Tho defense
set up was that it was tho custom at
that time to make such pre.-ents to
judges. Iu nearly every case tho pres
ents were made after the suits were de
cided, and in many tho presents were
received by Bacon's servants without
his knowledge. Tho chancellor him
self alwavs adhered to this lino of de
fense, lie wrote, on his fall, to his roy
'This is my last suit I shall mako to
your majesty in this business, prostrat
ing myself upon tho mercy seat after 15
years'"scrvice, wherein l'havo served
your majesty in' my poor endeavors
with an cntiro heart, and, as I presuuio
to say to your majesty, am still a vir
gin in matters that concern your per
son or crown, and now craving that,
after eight steps of honor, I bo not pre
And Bacon savs again in another let
ter: 'For tho briberies and gifts, where
with I am charged, when tho lock of
hearts shall bo opened, I hope I shall
not be found to havo the troubled foun
tain of a corrupt heart in a depraved
habit of taking rowards to pervert jus
tice, however 1 may bo frail and par
take of tho abuses of the time."
And lie wrote to Buckingham, with
all tho boldness of innocence:
However, I have acknowledged that
the sentence is just, and for reforma
tion sake lit, 1 have been a trusty and
honest and Christ-loving friend of your
lordship, and thejustest chancellor that
hath been in the live changes since my
Fined 40,000, sent to tho tower,
though for a short time, and deprived
of tho great seal, Haeon, exiled at Gor
hambury, has left a record of his own
feelings in thats Jitudc. He calls him
self, touchingly, '-Old, weak, ruined, in
want, and a very subject of pit-." Ho
longs for York house in the Strand, or
Gray's inn, where ho might have com
pany, physicians, conference with his
creditors and friends about his debts,
and the necessities of his estate, and
helps for his studies and writings. At
St Albans ho said ho lived "upon tho
sword point of a sharp air, endangered
if I go abroad, dull if I stay within,
solitary and comfortless, without com
pany, banished from all opportunities
to treat with any to do myself good and
to help out my wrecks, and that which
is one of my greatest griefs, my wife,
that hath been no partaker of my of
fending, must bo partaker of tho mis
er" of my restraint." But time grad
ually made Gorhambury less of a pris
on. " Bacon expre.-sed the resolve to
study, "not to become an abbey lubber,
as the old proverb was, but to yield
some fruit of my private life." In tho
green shades he studied and meditated
with his chaplain. Dr. Kouiley, his
faithful secretary Meantys, his wise
amanuensis Hobbs, and his loving
friend George Herbert. In October,
1625, the autumn before ho died, ho
wrote to a friend:
"Good Mr. Palmer, I thank God, by
means of tho sweet air of the country,
I have obtained some degree of health,
and I would bo glad in the solitary
time to hear a little more from you of
how the world goes."
In his will ho desired to bo buried in
St. Michael's church, near St. Albans,
for, says the great philosopher: "Thero
was my mother buried, it is tho parish
church of my mansion house in Gor
hambury and it is the only Christian
church within the walls of old Verul
am." In a nicho formed by a bricked
up window on the north side of tho
church, which is built of Roman tiles,
is a marble statue of Lord Bacon, which
was erected by his faithful secretary.
Sir Thomas Jlcantys, who himself lies
beneath an almost plain stone at tho
feet of his great Gamaliel. The statue,
which reprcents Bacon seated in
"deep, yet tranquil thought," was tho
work of an Italian artist, and beneath
it is an inscription from the pen of Sir
Henry Wotton, the diplomatist, wit,
and poet "Sic sedebat" ("so he sat")
saith tho epitaph. Bacon is leaning
back in a square-backed elbow chair,
his head resting on his hand. Ho
wears a long, stately, furred robo and
voluminous trunk hosj; a laced rutl",
sash garter, and shoe3 adorned with
large ribbon roses. His capacious
brow is partly hidden by a low-crowned,
broad-brimmed hat. So sat tho

I saw tho general of tho army, P. II.
Sheridan, come into tho Ebbitt house
tho other evening, to make a call, writes
the Washington correspondent of tho
New York World. Ho stopped a mo
ment in the rotunda to talk to somo
friends. A group of military officers
immediately gathered around him. A
stranger would never have selected
him as their commander-in-chief. A
more uiiiuilitary-looking man never
lived, in civilian s dress. He needs his
uniform. Most of tho otlicers about
him were in civilian's dress also, but
there was hardly one of them who did
not wear somo outward sign of his mil
itary character. Sheridan is very short
and each year seems to add to tho ro
tundity of his pudgy figure. When I
saw him in the lobby he wore upon tho
back of his round, bullet head a very
slim, high, old-fashioned silk hat of a
style that was very popular about tho
time of the close of the war. It was
about two sizes too small. His short,
iron-gray hair stood out from under tho
rim of his hat at nearly right angles
with it His red, weather-beaten face
docs not show any new lines of advanc
ing age, but his grizzly, iron-gray mus
tache and imperial are whitening very
fast. He wore a short, light, yellow
gray overcoat which had only five but
tons, and they were nearly ready to fly
off from tho tiudiiu strain cf Sheridan's
round figure. Tho coat, like the hat,
appeared to have been long outgrown.
The trousers were a gray plaid and fit
ted very snugly to the General's fat
legs. His boots were thick-soled and
unblacked. He wore no gloves. Tho
side and rear views of tho General sug
gested a low-coiuedv man who had
walked off the stage all mado up for a
funny part, but when you came tc look
at tho General square in tho face, its
stern, solemn, composed lines wcro
enough to make one forget his gro
tesque figure and careless dress. Ho is
very popular in Washington, but ho is
not as popular as was Gen. Sherman
with the ladies. Ho is fonder of stay
ing at home than he is of going about
in society. He takes more pleasure in
paying attention to his own wife than
to other men's wives. Until he reforms
in this particular ho will never acquiro
what might be called great popularity
in society. It will be ten years before
Sheridan can be retired. As the limo
is so far ahead, it is not worth whilo to
speculate as to his successor. When
he goes out, the rank of lieutenant-general
will go with him. The highest
rank after this will bo that of major
general. "Gail Hamilton" (Miss Abigail
Dodge) is described as quite tall, with
a very good iiguie, but not a very pret
ty face. In rcposo she lias rather a
frigid look, but when in conversation
her face lights up with an intelligent
ainile that is pleasing andinvitin".Sho
is usually very talkative and familiar;
and. when an idea strikes her, sho
seems to hesitate a moment, squint icr
eyes slightly as if compressing tho
thought into the briefest and choicest
language. Some ladies call her
"queer." Sho is no more so than a
middle-aged lady of a literary turn of
mind ought to be, to give her individ
uality. m i m
If wo ask why tho Chinese havo re
mained in a strange and immoviblo
condition for so many centuries, tho
answer is clear, though it may at first
seem a little inadequate. Tho Chineso
have no imagination. lVoplo without
imagination never change their habits.
Tho Chinese aro clever, cultivated,
skillful craftsmen, admirable imitators,
but they have no imagination, and that
explains everything. They are perfect
ly satisfied with tho dull routine of a
monotonous, laborious life, so long as
they havo enough to eat and buy
opium, and to gamble away a few cash
now and then with tho dice or domi
noos, or over tho glorious combat of
two valiant crickets. They are a
practical folk, and so long as things
are pretty comfortable, they do not seo
tho uso of vain aspirations. They aro
content with a domestic system which
an imaginative and romantic mind
could not endure. They aro happy in
a total absence of religion, because
they do not porceivo that religion
brings cash, and they feel no inward
promptings toward the spiritual life.
They have a scheme of morality which,
if carried out, must unquestionably de
serve a very high place among the at
tempts to govern the animal whom
Swift acutely describes as not
rationale but ralionig capaz, by tho
pure principles ofreason. Here again
tho imagination is wanting; the highest
kind of intellect, which connotes
a -quick and vivid imagination,
demands somcthiug more than a
moral system as the ground of conduct"
Let it bo a theology, a divine life or an
enthusiasm for the great human family,
thero must be a sentiment for tho
imagination to clothe with a compel
ling beauty and strength. Tho only
sentiment the Chinese possess, tho
only trace of tho power of imagination,
is in their reverence for their ancestors,
and their feeling that whatsoever a
man does brings renown or shame
upon his forefathers. This is a more
powerful and ennobling sentiment than
is generally perceived it is tho pivot of
Chinese life; but it is too large and com
plex a subject to be now discussed at
length. Apart from this one redeem
ing attribute, the worship of the great
dead, tho Chinese mind is singularly
pale anil colorless, strikingly devoid of
the vivifying qualities of western intel
lect empty of romance, enthusiasm
in a word, without imagination. Edin-
Drilling anil Iloring Wood.
Tho hand-drill or breast-drill, origi
nally intended for tho hand-drilling of
metals, has taken its place among
wood-working tools. In many instan
ces it has displaced the bit-brace, or at
least has filled a requirement left un
satisfactorily supplied by tho bit-brace.
Tho breast-drill may be "used for drill,
gimlet or bit, aud its speed on tho
best forms may be changed at will
without a change of speed of tho hand.
It has its advantage also, in the more
natural motion of the hand the verti
cal crank movement instead of the
horizontal crauk motion. A drilled
hole iu wood, for whatever purpose, is
better than a bored hole. The drill
cuts a clean hole; not merely finding
its way between tho fibres by displace
ing them, but removing the material
entire as it advances. The gimlet form
of wood borer is crude at best; a thread
at tho end is supposed to enter tho
solid wood and by spiral friction pull
tho cutting portion of it. Tho cutting
portion is a twist like a twist drill or
auger, supposed to deliver tho chips
which it never does deliver. The press
ure of tho hand is necessary to force tho
gimlet into the wood, and the pull of
tho hand is required to release it and
empty the chips. The drill cuts a clean
hole, and has none of the objections of
the gimlet. Unlike tho gimlet, it may
be resharpened so long as it lasts. Its
speed iu the breast drill is very much
greater than that of the gimlet in tho

The new cathedral of Moscow cost
more than 10,000,000. It has been
half a century in constructing, but the
wonder is not that the time-is so long,
but rather that it has been so short.
The Cathedral of St. Savior's is erected
as a memorial of the deliverance of
Russia from Xapoleon Bonaparte in 1812.
Less than three months after tho re
treat of the French the Emperor Alexan
der I. issued a decree that the church
should be built, and a few years later
the foundations were laid. It took
twenty years to erect tho building and
cover" it iu, and the scaffolding was
taken down in 1858. The scaflolding
alone co.-t 50,000. It has five great
gilded copper cupolas, surmounted by
crosscs, the central one of which stands
310 feet from the ground.
The whole building is faced with mar
ble, and the interior is pronounced the
most exquisite in its decoration in Eu
rope. There are magnificent paintings,
elegant windows, costly candelabra,
and the floor and wall aro inlaid with
man' varieties of marble.
There is nothing in the world to equal
the gorgeous splendor of the altar and
its accompaniments, and the cathedral
covers 70.000 square feet, and will ac
commodate comfortably in its central
area for it is in the form of a Greek
cross teu thousand worshipers. The
bells for this church cost 15.000. Tho
largest weighs twenty six tons, and the
smallest only thirty pounds. Ualignuni.
