At 2 this morning an explosion of gasoline in the rear part of the cellar of Michael Newman's grocery, 13 south Fourteenth street, lifted the build ing from its foundation aud dropped it back again in amass, beneath which were buried seventeen persons. They were : HICUAEL. NEWMAN", "rife and four children; MISS HATTIE BROWN, of Columbus, Kentucky; CHAIU.ES DEVOlti: and wife; CUAKES EFFOltD: MISi PATTY BKYANT, and MltS. BEASLY. A fire followed tlie explosion. The fire was quenched and then the work of rescue began. The two daughters of the Newman fam are alive, but the others are dead. Miss Hattie Brown, Columbus, Ky., visiting Charles Devore, was badly injured but mi raculously escaped, and is the only person wlio passed through the horrible ordeal and lives to tell the story of her escape. She awakened to rind herself buried beneath havy timbers, somewhere against a wall. As the fire was about to reach her, tl e ruins settled and reletsed her and sle grouped her way out, falling several times over obstacles and finally reaching the rtar yard, where she lay unconscious. Tl.e walls cracked, the floors gave away and the plaster fell within a radius of a hundred yard. A corrected lift of the dead and wounded by the explosion, is eight dead and three wjunded seriously. Six others, who lived In the building, reported missing, have bsn found, either injured or slightly bruised. The general belief Is that escap ing gas filled the cellar and that Mr. New man kept a quantity of kerosene oil and gasoline in the cellar near where the ex plosion evidently took place. The financial loss caused by the explos ion last night is about SJ0.000, divided Into small amounts among property owners In the neighborhood. RENDER THANKS.

The wives, mothers and sweathearts of the gallant lads of the Champion City guard, tendered them a very brilliant ban quet at the armory last (Monday) evening in recognition of the hand.-ome work by thebojsnt Chicago recently. The affair was entirely Informal, but nothing more pleasant in a social way has occurred, this season. The banquet was prefaced by a short drill. first of the whole company and later by llie Chicago drill iad. The drilling was entirely In the manual of anus, and most of the move ments were executed with a brilliancy and precision that left no room for surprise at the success gained by the boys at Chicago. The drilling was heartily and loudly ap plauded by the hundred or more guests present, many of whom were ladies. Lieu tenants Ogdrii and Peters, of battery E, in full uniforms, were among the honored guests of tho evening, as were also mem bers of the city press. The supper was the next thing on the programme, and a splendid spread It was. Two long tables, set with handsome ser vice and spread with appetizing viands ran the entire length of the armory- Gracing the center of the head table was a stately design, contributed to the guards by Messrs. Frank & Hax. the popular bakers and con fectioners. It was a spiral pyramid, com posed of candy, representing the national color, and was a handsome work of art, for which the guards return sincere thanks and are most grateful. Down at the other end of the table was a inagnitlceut cake v. Itii a life-like American Hag set ou the icing on top, the banner being composed of red. white and bule sugar. Tlie cake was a gift of Mrs. Mary B. Cook. The supper Itself was a substantial one, embracing coffee and cream, bread and butter, rolls, slaw, celery, baked beans, cold meats of every kind, cake and fruits. About an hour was spent in the best of cheer over the festal board, and then informal ad dresses followed by Lieutenant Carl Mow er. ex-CapUln T. J. Klikpatrick, Mr. John Winger, Mr. Then. Troupe.

Captain Wagner then read the following history of the company: On Friday. August 1C. 1873, the old Day ton Zouaves went into camp on the Clark county fair grounds. It was decided later to attempt the organization of a local mi litia company. The meeting was adjourned from week to week until, on the 29th of the next month, September. 1873, fifteen names were signed to an article, known since as tlie Old Private K"Ii, and In honor of Cap tain Karis company Die organization was called Springfield Light Guard. On the the 33d of February, 1874, Washington's birthday, the company made its first public parade. On April 30, 1S7-I. the company was ac cepted by General James O. Amos, then adjutant general of Ohio, and became a part of the Ohio Independent militia,as one branch of the active militia of the state was then called. Its first encampment was at Silver Lake, Iogan county, O., on the 3d, 4th and 5th of July, 1S74.

The greatest trip in the history of the company was the trip to Washington to participate in the grand military parade at tendant upon the inauguration of President Garfield.

Divination is then believed to attain its highest power, and Glendower's gift of calling spirits from the vasty deep becomes possible to all who choose to avail themselves of the privileges of the occa sion, whether it be with bell, book and can dle, or with a stolen cabbage stalk, which foretells, being straight or crooked, a desir able or undesirable wife or husband.- The night is usually given up to fireside amusements. A favorite ono of these is the pursuit nf the elusive apple. Out of a number of them (Hating in a tub of water, if the young man manages to pick up one with his teeth, it entitles him to a kiss from the prettiest girl in the room, or from each and all. if the yaung Lothario claim ft Whether it is best to deftly siirk up the apple or to plunge manfully over head in pursuit of a particular one. and having forced it to the bottom of the tub to seize it firmly with the teeth, and emerge dripping triumphant with the prize, is an unsettled question. Those versed in Halloween aquatics, say the latter is the only sure game to play. Dropping a fork from a height into the tub among the apples gives an opportunity for a prettydisplay of mark manship. but is a poor substitute for tho roystering fun of ducking and diving. Another trick with tlie pple. which Is the favorite fruit nf divinMjon, is to hang up a stick horizontally by a string from the selling, putting a candle rn one end and an apple on the. other. The stick Is twirled rapidly and the merrymakers in succession leap up and snatch at the apple with their teeth, no use of the hands being allowed. The victim as often grabs the candle as tl e apple, but it is rare sport for beardless youths, and success secures the Hallowe'en wish of their hearts. Another ceremony much practiced at Uallowe'n is that of the "three dishes," or "iuggies," as the Scotch call them. Two of these are filled with clear and foul wa ter respectively, and one Is empty. They are ranged on th. heartlu and the parties blindfolded advance in succession and dip their fingers into one of the dishes. I f they dip into the clear water they are to marry a maiden. If into tlie foul water a widow. and if into the empty dish the miserable state ot being either a bachelor cr au old maid stares them in tlie face. In the country the initiatory Hallowe'en ceremony Is for tlie young people to go out hand-in-hand, blindfolded. Into the cabbage garden, and each pull the first stalk he meets with. They then return to tlie fire side to Inspect their prizes. According as the stalk is big or little, straight or crooked, so shall the future wife or husband be of the one by whom It is pulled. The amouut of earth sticking to the roots shows the size of the dowry, and the taste of the pith Indicates the temper. Finally the stalks are placed one after the other over the door, and the christian names of tlm persons who chance thereafter to enter the house areTmldlh regular succession .to. bo thoe,. of the Individuals whom the parties are to marry. Those who desire to tamper witli the powers of the unseen world, will find sev eral authentic and reputable ways of doing so. One of the most celebrated spells is eating at midnight an apple before a looking-glass, with tlie intention of discovering the Inquirer's future husband, who. by tlie assistance of Satan, will be seen jieepin . . , , , t ( Another spell much. -if- " over her shoulder. fected by rustics is to walk backward down us ics s t . waih oacswaru now. tain., looking into a mirror held I. In it will appear reflected of the future husband or the cellar stairs, in the hand. the face wife. Another metliixl of invoking spirits is "sowing the hemp seed; that Is, going out into the garden and repeating thtee times the move ment of sowing grain, and then three times making the motions of holding up a hand ful of grain to be winnowed by the wind, "winnowing three weights of nothing." the Scotch call it The nun you will wed Is I vveii is , warranted to appear before jou. , , , . i oi ineseriesisiovveiiiiesieeveoi asuirijc:lt f jjeff Yo:t i.OiH,0..t Par., aid auu oang ii up ociorB me ure iu tuv. v.u , stroke of midnight the future husband or wife of the experimenter will appear and turn the sleeve, l'opular superstition at tributes to children born on Halloween the possession of certain mysterioui faculties, especially the power to see and talk with supernatural beings. Headers of Scott will recall how the young heiress of Avenel saw her dead father at Dame Elspeth's cot tage on Hallowe'en, with armor on, and hawk with silver bells on wrist, and the White Lady of Avenel on many other occa sions. It Is an uncanny time, beyond question. and lads lent upon mischief, plntungvfne unhinging of gates, the rilling of cabbage plots, and the rigging up of mysterious "tic-tacks" against the doors of innocent suburbans, will do well tn look to their own safety, or the fate of Father Philip, the Sacristan, and the good Monk Eustace, in the "Monastery," may overtake them in their Hallowe'en spoits. LOCALLY. There was the usual deviltry afoot in Springtieid last night. The youngsters were in their element, and a gloriously golden full moon looked down and grinned at their pranks. Cabbage stalks were hurled, windows "tick-tacked," gates un hinged, door-bells rung, doors pounded. and every sort of mischief that could be thought of was perpetrated. The police were tolerant, and laughed more than they scoldel. Mr. It. E. Lawrence, a tecber in the Pleasant street building was treated to a surprise party. Cabbages, potatoes and beans were on thebillot fare, but they were hurled at the doors instead of served in the usual conventioiMl manner. Along Center street, from Clark to Jeffer son, hardly a gate was left on its hinges. and every lamp-post was ornamented by a gate or a chair. At the genial residence of Col. Spangler, Feniclitf avenue, his daughters, Irene and Winnie, entertained a large number of their lady friends in a delightful iialiovveen party. THE SINTZ QUARRIES SOLD.

Hut linn Not Yet Made Any AppolittlaenU. Frank M. I lagan, esq., tho nen xi$t masterof the city of Springfield by virtue of Cleveland's appointment, took posses sion of the office at J o'clock Monday night at close of business James Johnson, sen., stepping down and out into the ranks nf private citizenship again. The chance was accomplished by no shock of nature and there Is no broken window glass in the vicinity. Mr. Hagan never entered the working part of the Springfield postoflice until yes terday afternoon at 3 o'clock, and consequently docs not feel as though he was yet ' well up" in the details of the business. Mr. ll.ican was seen at his law office this forenoon by a Kr.rum.ic reporter and the following conversation took place: "Mr. Hagan, have you any announce ments to make concerning your staff in the pastnfflce?'' The new postmaster paused a moment to indulge himself in a vague and extremely non-committal smile before replying. "No," he replied. "I have no announce ments to make of any character. For the present, the old staff will be continued. 1 never entered the business part of the post office until yesterday, and until I familiar ize myself with the work, business and characteristics of the office, I do not feel competent to make any changes in the working staff, at present I know n-itliln about the business, but I intend to thor oughly familiarize myself with its details as soon as possible. To go rawly in at present and displace people who have proven by long service their capability for the positions they till would be a grave damage to the public service and highly dis creditable to the democratic party and to myself asits reprentative. The impair ment of the efficiency of public service Is something which I wish most strenuously to avoid, and, of course, the postoffice will be more closely watched during the com mencement of my administration than ever before. There are no reasons why demo crats should not make good postal attaches and handle mail with great cleverness, but they have got to have experience first It takes a man, I think, with an ex- traordinary degree of Intelligence to do the work which some of the employes of the office do." "May I be allowed to ak If you have se lected your assistants?" "I can only reply by stating that I am absolutely unpledged to anybody. Them are some. I admit, to whom I have said that I regard their applications with favor at present, but would not commit myself until I have studied up on the positions which they sought" "Is It true that Judy Aron will be your first assistant-." "I decline to make any stttement as to that Mr. Aron Is, I understand, engaged with P. P. Mast & Co. The assistant post master in reality, does all the work." "Will you give up your law practice when you get fully into the office?" "To a large extent yes; but not entirely There are a large number of cases which, no one rn attend to but me, as I hold the strings." GRAND OPERA HOUSE. Two Admirable Attraction.
