Miibm'i Iton la a Bias' CIUmu laalcwaat. FOR ONE WEEK, I ffitSE MOM FOR SPEilfJG GOODS! Last night Palatka was t kited by flits of (apposed incendiary orrrjin. The hop belonging to If r. A. L. Jane, builder of water tanks, and Mr. 1L II. DsJtoa's wood splitting factory at the head of Hirer street, were entirely con sumed. The fire started at about tan minntea past 11 o'clock and had pt digress ed ao far by the time it was diacoTered that it waa impossible to save the build ing from destruction. Some ten minutes elapsed before a general alarm could be given. Men stood and yelled time and again bat apparently to no avail our fire bell, do we hear somebody say? Ob, yes, it rang; after a while, and, then, so faint'y that it is doubtful whether a third of our citizens heard it. A large crowd had congregated before any of the Fire Department had shown up, and gaining entrance to the ware house, the Jacksonville, Tampa and Kef West Railway hose had a good stream playing upon the surrounding buildings as the West End hose were unrolling their hose. The North End came in next, followed by the Putnam Alert, and hv this tim throo etr fnnr nnwmrfnl streams were doing good service upon I VfilVfi'tO. TTHlTI sTIingfl tC.

IPrices Out in Two In Cloaks, Newmarkets, Bed Spreads, Lace Curtains, iron, and as the contents both above and below were mostly pitch pine and cy press woods, the fire becarne so intensely hot that it was quite beyond human en durance to get within a serviceable dis tance until the flames had been some what subdued. Mr. Dalton, who , at the - time of the alarm was upon Lemon street, rushed quickly to the office, which stood a little to the rear of the burning structure, and braving the awful beat, attempted to get at his books, but was finally forced to rewrn. His office, however, was saved. From Mr. Dalton a reporter of Thk Palatka News learned that a horse and a mule were enwrapped in flames and burned to death long before he arrived at the scene, anl that only a few days since he had given 300 for the former. Mr. Dalton states that in roughly esti mating his loss he places it in the neigh bor hoed of $2,000, with an insurance of $1,000. Mr. Jones at the time of this writing is out of the city, having left on the 6 o'clock train yesterday afternoon for Sanford, consequently his loss cannot be chronicled as yet. We are informed, however, that he had just completed several new tanks, and that they also " were destroyed. The hydrants were put to an excellent test and there is now no room to criti cise the inefficiency of the Palatka Water Works they did welL Within one hour after starting, the fire was ex tinguished and the West End Hose was left to play over the reins and a large wood pile which was still burning in the center. The fire was put out entirely by the use of the hydrants. soma ATTEMPT. Scarcely half an hour passed after the greater part of the crowd of spectators had dispersed when Mr. Hill, clerk at Henia PetevBianiCs, in look ing around the neighboring build ings of the store to see that all was as it should be, discovered a bright light which he at first took to be a light - in the dwelling of Dr. Ames, some dis tance from the Peermnn grocery store, but upon closer examination he found it to be a burst of flames. He im mediately gave an alarm and with the help of several persons who were pass ing by succeeded in putting it out. In vestigation shows that a handkerchief and shavings had been so placed between the walls buck of the barber shop that it would soon rush up stairs and envelope the entire building and then the block. The handkerchief or rag bad seemingly been satuated with oil and then stuffed up under the weather board inf. No shavings were about the place when the store was closed. Mr. Hill, with the aid of Mr. Cross, put the fire out and at the same time awakening Mr. Lockwood, who lives in the second story. Weather Judications.

Before Judge Haughton yesterday appeared one DnTid Sims, charged with insulting a teacher in the presence of bis pupils last November, for which be was fined $35 ami cottts, or $38.88 in full. A large force of men from the Florida Southern Railway shops were at work yesterday at the Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West wharves loading a loco motive Uo-W upon a "flat" to be trans ported to Green Cove for the Melrose and Green Cove Railway. Engineer Col well yesterday took a party of ladies on his new locomotive. No. 21, down the Florida Southern Rail way as far as Ocala. The paity con sisted of Mesdamea F. M. Myers and R. F. Wade, and Misses Gussy Glen and Ola Leonard. They enjoyed a pleasant ride. Attention is called to Capt. Butler's "n -st advertisement in our "special' column. Mr. Butler has but little doubt that the book was taken , from his coat pocket at his mill, and has hope that as soon as the thief found the worthlessness of the book to any one ex cept the owner that he might have thrown it aside and thereby given oppor tunity to some passing person who would very likely pick it up and return to him. The St. Johns and Halifax Railroad will give an excursion to-morrow to Ormond, from this city. This is the date of the grand Annual Tournament for the Ormond banner. The Hernando Com pany will probably do some excellent riding. The contest will be called at 2 o'clock.
