Quebec,Oct. 11 About 1 o'clock this sfternoon an explosion occurred at the new parliament building, destroying a consid erable portioa of the masonry and the windows of the new building which was Tnst being roofed in. The explosion was ai ".ret supposed to have been the boiler of the ngine used for hoisting material, but -this proved not to be the esse ; reither can it be attributed togas. The general im pression appears to be that the explosion was caused by dynamite, but as none of this ingredient is used on the works the mystery is how it came there. Investiga- .

To-days advices from Catar:s show the recent cyclone was far more destructive than at first announced. The entire cotiutry about Catanis is devas tated. Vineyards and olive gardens have vanished. Fully three thousand dwellings are dtstroyed. Thev are gr? at men to "cod" each other as the saying i-., and ore stylish conductor spoke about his diamonds, and finally got sight of a little worn end dilapidated charm on his watch cl ain, a little tortoise shell locket, with marks cut into it all over. The talking conductor said : "Oh, boys, look at him ! A diamond as big as a paper weight, a two hundred dol lar watch and a hundred chain, and a dirty, nickei', worn out. miserable locket worth ten cen:s. The brotherhood of rail road conductors ought to bounce him out of the asscci tion." The boys all joined in and said it was a shame to wear su ha thing; some pro posed raising a purse to get him a new om, one of the boys took hold of the miserable little charm and pu l -d it off. TheslylMi conductor stepped back with a forctd sm'lr, and took the cimrni in hand tenderly and seemed to canss if, and he tried to change the subject, but the bojs would not aliow it, when he s ml : "Boys, tnat is more valuable 'o me than my diamond stud, my wa ch or my posi tion. I would not part with it. for .11 of Alex. Mitchell's weal h. I would not erase one of iluse little dents in the charm to save mv right arm. I couldn't d it, bi.y." "Oh. I know what's the mat e. sid the talking conductcr, as he punch d the styl ish conductor in the ribs with his ihu&b, "some girl gave it to him. I krow how it i?. A girl mcde me a preen: onre ot a grand bounce, and I carr.ed the marks cf it for years. Old story, here, carries the cow horn charm, with the notches in ss a re minder of the old love. Every notch repre sents a kiss, eh, you old rascal." The stylish conductor turneel away troni the boys, o.t?nsibly to light his cigar, but really to hide a. t ar that was tryirjg to " O. liUV 11 IUC 11 Ul A3 Ul U13 V T w . He took his handkerchi f and wiped his eye, and said something about a cinder in it, and then turned to the boys and said : "Fellows, I don't want ytu to think I am loo soft, and as the most of you have chil dien, I guess you won't think so if I tell you about this cheap little affair. I used to wear it on a sihvr watch chain when I was breakirgon a freight train fifteen years hgo. We had a little flaxen-haired girl baby, and I was away so much leaving at 4 o'clock in the morning, and coming home late every second night, that I did not have much time to visit with the baby, except when she woke up nights with aching gums and Sundays. Well, boys, the little ba y almost cut a whole set of testli on that mis erable little watch charm. Nothing would seem to hit the ritrht spot oi the tooth, and she would ly awake of nights to wait for me to come home and 'papa' was never too dirty for her to get in his lip, nestle up in the bosom covered with a greasy blouse and be happy. Sundays her mother didn't have to look at her, because she was iu my lap all dty. Well, one day I was up on the road with a way freight, unloading some stud at a station, and the secoud day out, and thinking that at S p m. I would be at home and the baby would trollnn ncpr mp wlipn mv conductor. a good a b y as ever lived, who is now a division superintendent, came along as p'ls as a sheet 8nd said to me : Boss, you have got to go right home. Go, get on the engine and the old man will pull her out and get you down to your nouse in anoui ioriy minutes, and he can get deck neiore we have this freight unloaded. Your baby is awful sick.' Boys, I was so weak I couldn't lift a pound. I couldn't get on the engine without help, but we went to J. like the wind. The baby was dead, was dead when the conductor told me, and he knew it, but it w?s tough enough fo- him, poor old p rd, to tell me she was sick. I found htr dead. having died of convulsions in teething, and ray wife frantic, while 1 felt as though a train of box cars had run over me, and I wished they had. Oh. what a blow that was. The prettiest baby that ever was, that I left two days before with smiles on her faee that would soften the hardest heart, dead. She had said: ''Turn home to-inorro7, papa , and baby have a new toof." As she lay on the bed, an angel with her lips smilingly parted, enough to show some of the little teeth that h&d cut the holes you see in this charm. I took the charm up and kissed it, and I said I would always wear it and I have, so far, and I always will." The stylish conductor turned his head one way to wipe his eye, the talking con ductor turned his head another way, and every blessed one of th e large-hearted boys had te3is i" their eyes as big as the stylish conductors diamond, lhey shook hands with the stylish conductor and went away. A few days afterward the stylish conductor missed his charm, when he was and his wife told him she wauled to have the rfng fixed that held it on t:,e chain and she would have it for him wnen he c-me back from his run.

Items of Interest Concerning the Railroads Picked up By Bazoo Ramblers. Freight business is very dt:ll at pres ent. The main line trains were all on time yesterday. The K. & T. train was several hours late yesterday morning. The men at the shops seem to be satis fied with the i""n per cent. cut. There are a large number of damag d Lox cars on the K & T. sMi tracks await ing the attention of the carpenters. Tha gen r - freight agents cf the s .tub em and extreme southern Texas railroads will meet in Now Orleans in n few weeks for the pur o-e of cutting down rates from ChatiKLO jcaand Atlama to western points. The Illinois Central railroad has or dered the survey of a line from Yazoo Cr to Memphis, to tip tli5 territory tributary to the Mississippi and Tennessee railroad, which recently passc-d into the hands of a riv;l company. A party of twenty or more mis3ior aries from Georgia, Alabama, Texas and this state, all members of the Uethodist church South, left here last night for San Francisco via the Union Pacific railroad, their destination being Shf-ngaai, China,. Globe-Dtjuocrat. r-With scares aud score: of railways that travtr ibis country it would seem to a superficial obset ve? tfat at least one-half of them should be upon su'?h financial ba sis as to insure confidence abroad ss tfeli S3 at home. JBut it is not so. The oft-repeated appointment of a receiver for roads that have overdone themselves in the way of competition, and thus succeeded in ruining memseives, nas oroKen a i conndence m railway speculators. The question of rebuilding the shops of the Queen and Orescent route, which were burnt d at Meridian last week, is now being discussed by General ManagerV&ott and PresVcit Bond. If no immediate ac tion is aken the matter will probably be deferred indefinitely and perhaps until the qi t:on of buiF'ng the general shops of te ro-.d in (Jhstunooga is detei mined. It is said that President Bond is highly pleased with Chattauooga, and regards it by far the most eligible site for the shops, especially so from me fact that two of their largest lines terminate here. HOSPITAL ARRIVALS. Following was the hospital record for yesterday : James E. Well, of Atoka, I. T.. a car penter, with dysentery. Ed.

McMahon, of State Line, a section la borer, with intermittent fever. James Grace, of State Line, an extra ging laborer, with intermittent fever. A PICTURE FROM LIFE. The story is told of a New York messen ger boy who brought a dispatch into the private office of a certain great financier and railroad king, and who, while he wait ed for an answer, leaned on the great man's desk ? d rhtctled a lively tune, to which he kep 'iiise with his feet The great man wasshow'r ,u.rcughout his er.t re system. ; and he bent upon tue audacious imo a gr ze whose severity would have unnerveu a po lice captain ; but its only effect upon the uniformed urchin was to cause I,:m to wink one eye with much unconcern, while he still continued his tune and his shuflle. Then the great man said, sternly: "Boyy this is not Harrigan 3nd Hart's?" To which the unhumblel young repeal re plied: "You bet your life it pn't; I wouldn't pay no half dollar to come in here." Cleveland Herald. Bconville, Oct, 11. Correspondence. The Advertiser this week contains along arcouut of the Boonviiie Literary club re cently orgaiiiz tl in the Vine Clad.

This morning a telegram from the Gretna Greeu of Missuiri lovere, he Indian territory, announces the mar riage c-f both couple v and that they will re turn the first of ne xt week. An elopement was made necessry from tie fact that Mr. Daiit-i Kline, father of the two gir's, s'ren nuously opposedj the match, and forbade either cf the young men paying attentio s io his girls. Mrs. Kline, their mother, died some rauitbs ago. Th it makes the third elopement recently t-.iken plce in which a Boonviiie printer was ouc of the parties concerned.
