The Clltlon Mill TotnllJ Irtrorel by Fire I.t Mlit-I.io, au.uwu. The village of Clifton. Just on the Clark nnil Grnene county Hue. was Mted with a terrible tire last night, which totally de strojed the Clifton ilouring mill. The mill was an Immense structure, and one of the best ilouring mills in this section of the country. For some lime the mill has been running night and day, but during the past three or four days has been In operation only In the day time. Last night about 9 o'clock the watchman made a round turougn the mill and found nothing wrong. At midnight a gcLtleman who was driv ing past the mill noticed n bright light In the southeastern portion of the mill, on tin second tloor. He supposed that the watch man was going through the mill with his lantern, and iaid no more attention to it Atiout half an hour later another gentle man, who was passing the mill, dlscoveren flames issuing from the structure, and ai once gave the alarm. The residents of the illage and vlclnitj were quickly aroused, and by I o'clock an immense crowd had collected atiout the burning mill. A high wind was blowing, and the flames spread fast and furiouslj through the Interior of the burning build ing. Fortunately for the surrounding property, the mill was covered by a slate I roof. Had there been a shingle roof mi I the building the high wind might have ..........I 1.a t',ra tn tllA mtHri ill.1ri' sinrM uw " " " ---- c -- Notwithstanding the slate roof it was with considerable difficulty that the houses across the street were saved. Clifton has no fire apparatus and the llames had to be permitted to Like their course. By stren OU3 efforts on the part of the people the Haines were prevented from spreading to the saw mill and the wheat warehouse near the mill. The warenoue was tilled with wheat and the loss on it would have been verj heavy. A few hours after the fire was discovered the building was a total ruin, and the valuable machinery and other contents were entirely destroyed. At the time of the fire there were between 13,000 and 15.000 bushels of wheat and 500 barrels of flour in the mill, and the loss on both the wheat and Hour Is total. The mill was equipped with the finest roller process machinery M"1 that' to' was ruined. The Clifton mill wa owned and operated by E. K.

HER OWN DAUGHTER. Mrs. Mary Ilutler Ejects Her Own Kleli nnd lllood tor .', Iteut An Uuiinturul Mother. Yesterday afternoon Mrs. Mary Butler, who has come into some notoriety as the mother of tl e joung scamp who ruined Mary E. Dillon, got out a writ of restitution before 'Squire Stout against Mrs. John Mack to eject the latter from -a house on Pleasant street, uear the East street shojis. Mrs. Mack keeps a resLiurant and hoarding house at the place named. Her husband is a railroader, and she is re ported by the neighbors to be a quieL jieaceable woman. At this time she is within a few days of continemenL and is not in a condition to bear any excitement or exposure. The amount In which the is in arrears is S5. Constable Vanderburg, much against his own sense of decency and justice, commenced setting the furniture In the streeL When he had about half finished the job. he" learned from the neighbors that Mrs. Mack is MISS. mm.Elt's OWN' 11ACOIITF.R. The officer could hardly believe the evidence of his own senses, but inquiry developed the statement to tie the entire truth. There nprni Constable Vanderburg went to Mrs. Butler and expostulated with her upon the brutality of her coarse In turning her daughter into the streeL but Mrs. Butler wouldn t listen to him and tleiuaniieu mat the writ be executed and the keys restored to her. There was no alternative but for the officer to complete his unwelcome task. Mrs. Mack also pleaded with her unnatural mother that her furniture be allowed to re main in the house until she could find a place of shelter. Een this poor privilege was denied, and Mrs. Mack was driven out into the freezing cold to care for her f urni tuie as best she could. The neighbors are much wrought up over the case. lOratoriral Contest.

Tho Nineteenth Century has been pro lific in discoveries and inventions for the amelioration of suffering mankind, as well as the useful arts and sciences.

Under the direction of the New York State Board of Health, eighty-four different kinds of baking powders, embracing all the brands that could be found for sale in the State, were submitted to examination and analysis by Prof. C. F. CiiANii.Krt,a mem ber of the State Board and President of the New York City Board of Health, assisted by Prof. EDWAiili ti. Love, the well knonu United States Government chemisL The official report shows that a large number of the ponders examined wero found to contain alum or lime; many of them to such an extent as to render them seriously objectionable for use in the prep aration of human food. Alum was found in twenty-nine sample.. This drug Is employed in baking powders to cheapen their cost. Tho presence of lime Is attributed to the impure cream of tartar of commerce used In their manu- ! facture. Such cream of tartar was also I analyzed, and found to contain lime and other impurities; in some samples to the ex tent of 9:i per cer.L of then- entire weigliL All the baking powders of the markeL with the single exception of "Koyal" (not including the alum and phosphate powders. which were long since discarded as unsafe or inefficient by prudent housekeepers) are made from the impure cream of tartar of commerce, and consequently contain lime to a corresponding extenL The only bak nj povvdtr yet found by chemical analysis to be entirely free from lime and absolutely pure is the"RoyaI." This perfect purity results from the exclusiveuse of cream of tartar specially refined and prepared by patent processes which totally remove the tirtrate of lime and other impur ities. The cost of this chemically pure cream of tartar is much greater than any other, and on account of this greater cost is used in no baking powder hut the "Royal." Prof Lovk, who made the analysis of baking powders for the New York State Board of llealth.as well as for the Govein nienL says of the purity and wholesouie- ness of the "Koyal: "I have tested a package of Koyal Baking Powder. which I purchased In the open mar keL and find it composed of 'pure and wholesome ingredients.

Clara: "I have had a most refreshing bath. The Ivory Soap is, without exception, the most luxurious soap for bathing. It lathers freely and is so easily rinsed off, leaving a sense of comfort and cleanliness such as no other soap will." Louise: "Yes, and isn't it nice to use soap that floats like "the Ivory ; for if you drop it, you don't have to feel for it, but pick it off the top of the water." A WORD OF WARNING. There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as tho 'Ivory';" they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remark able qualities of the genuine. Ask for " Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it. Copyrlsht lssfi, by Procter A ( Iimbl.- 37th ANNUAL REPORT MANHATTAN LIFE INSURANCE CO., 01 Xew Tork, lot! and l.'.S Ilroadwaj. (moA.Mzr.11 in is.0.
