IxADE STUDENTS BURKED. Fire Catching rom a High Hat Ignites Their Dresses Two Will Die. Arkon, O., Dec. 14. At a birth day celebration in the Buchtel Col lege Friday evening 30 lady students were gathered in the socieiy's library building. They were entertained by eig'it, who wore masks and loose, flowing garnets, with high hats cov ered wi h co ton. The h t of Mi s Aurella Staigmier of Utica, N. Y.f caught fire and cora mumca'ed to the entire party. Every effort was made to save the young ladies, whose screams were heard throughout the gr at building ard wh"Be blazing costumes seemed to fill the room Miss Mary Stephens of Cliftcn Springs, N Y., hd every particle of clothing burned from h r body, and rolled over and over in ihe centre of the room, while a little g' oup trierLto extmguii tne names iui-s ftteigmier . , miT - was nurnea irom neau 10 not nwi i b th will probably die.

Akron, O , December 15 Lulu Steigmeyer, of Attica, O., and May Stevens, of Clifton Sprims, N. Y.t who were the worse burned of the victims of the birthday party at the Buchtel College, Saturday night, did early this morning. Both were burned almost beyond recognition. Mis Stevens was one of the most beautiful and most popular students in the col lege. Not a spot on her body except th soles of her feet escaped the fire, and when she was found in her room after the mod rush of the burning girls from the fourth story, she sfod speechless, utterly destitme of cloth ing, wi'h hands extended, blackene i and blistered, and not until spoken to did she recover from her dazed con dition. The parents of Miss Steigmeyer arrived this morning an hour after her death. Brief service was held iu the college chapel this afternoon and the remains were taken to Attica to night, accompanied by the pareuts and four members of the freshmen class. May Baker of Johnson's Creek, N. Y., and Aureiia Wrick of Storm Lake, Io., are the most seriously injured of the su r viving members of the party, but physicians s.iy there is no immediate danger. The fall term of the coKege ends next Thursday, but recitations will bs abandoned, and many young ladies are packing their trunks and hurrying from the city to get away from the scene of horror. The college habs were filled with the oder of burning flesh, and many young ladies fainted a3 they went about doing jrelief werk. Piles Piles itcliing Piles.

He became involved in finincial difficulties, was sold out, at d in a barroon shot a young Hebrew named Max Adltr, in the neck, with a ma 1-caliber pistol, the ball lodging near the spinal cord, and producing paraly.-is from thehead dow wajd. Notwithstanding the seri ous nature of the wound young Adler livtd lor months, attended by the best me lical aid that could be secur ed. Ward and his friends persuaded the family ot the injured young man to permit them to call in, in consulta tion, Dr. Agnew of Philadelphia, oue of Garfield's physicians. Some weeks after the injury an operation was per formed, which gave relief to the pitient, and alievia?ed the severity of his suffering, but too late to save ins life. That fact will undoubtedly form an ititeresting feature of the de fense, the claim being that if that operation hnd been performed earlier the life of the victim might have ben savtd. Senntor Yoorhees, who, with Senator Blackburn, Judge Wilson, of Star Route trial fame ; Jame3 Cole man, Matt Carpenters former partner and other able lawyers have been engaged for the defens0, says the tril will be one of the mo.-t interesting in American criminal jurisprudence. Secretary Blaine, it is said, has about decided to go to Chicago to deliver an address on Washington Brthda). It appears to be the pro gramme to make the occasion a great political demonstration The old Seward mansion, in wh'ch Mr. Blaine resides, is reopening its hospitable doors, closed by successive family be reavement2. 1 hough one of the plainest houses in Washington in it- external appearance, its internal arrangements, as leraodeled by the Secretary, are . aid to bs of the most comp ete and commodious character. Mr. Blaine will probably take advant age af an option and purchase the house before the expiratkn of his lease. Occasionally one meets wi h an interesting .New lork reminiscence floating around in Washington. One of these turned up the other day. A discussion was sroinsr on in resa d to q 4? W the sincerity of the Herald's advocacy of the election of Charles A. Dana to the senate, and this reminded a vet eran newspaper man of an incident of the time ot the elder Bennett In 1867 the legislature of Kew York was re pub'ican and had to elect a senator. Mr, Benneit suggested the name of Horace Greeley, and day after day boomed his candidacy iu his own peculiar manner. Io those days the e litorial courtesie3 of modern times were not known to New York editors. There were no references to "esteemed contemporaries" as now, but occasion al horse whippings of editorial rivals instead. The persistency with which jr. Bennett advocated the election of Greeley perplexed the editorial coun cil, who three time3 a week were called together to receive the old gentleman's directions. At last Dr. Wallis, the oldest member of the editorial force, plucked up courage to ask the question. "Mr. Bennett,3' he said, "may I ask why you support Mr. Greeley so strenu ously for the senate ?" The old man brought his revolving eye to bear upon the doctor. The doctor did his best to reciprocate by fastening his single optic, glittering behind his rrlaccoo on hie pViipt. j "Why, you dammed fool, you," said Mr. Bennett, "don't you see that if I could get Greeley sent to the "I wonder," said tbe narrator, ll if S Pills I 'wheth-r there is nnv one now left on the Herald staff who remembers this incident, and whether that ex pl ins i he He aid's supp -rt of Mr. Dana. Young James Grdmi was then in training lor the editorial chair, and I think was present at the cmudcI meeting when the incident occurred. SITT LG BULL KIL LED. Indian Police do the Work While the Chief was Kesist- mg Arrest. Standing Bock Agencv, N. Dak., Dec. 16. A fight at Sitting Bub's camp occurred about 6:45 yestei day morning, an i for half an hour was of the mst desperate character. Bull had been informed of the com ing of the Indian police ami he and his immediate followers were fully armed with V inch esters, scalp ing knives, revolvers and clubs. The In iiau po ice did not get an opportu nity to demand the old medicine man's surrender, but firing bejan iroin the Indian tepees immediately upon the appearance of the officers, ami three of ihe latter were killed outright, two wounded so seriousiv th.nt they died b-fore they could be moved, and three others slightly. The p dice then oi ened fire upon the savage?, at th-s same time dispatch ing couriers to the rear to briug up the calvary under Capt. Fouchet. Sittiug Bull started to run up the river and was cap ured, but his fol lowers made a desperate effort to res cue h m, and he was shot twice once in the left shoulder and again in the region of the heart. Bull's sou, Crow Foot, was killed, together with Black Bear, Catch Bird and from five to seven others. The body oi Sitting Bull was se cured by the cavalry and is beiug brought to Fort Yates. A party of reds estimated at 100 escaped up the Grand River. The point at which the battle occurred is 42 miles below the agency, and information is necessarily a eagre and conflicting A French CJlrl'i Predicament. A comical contretemps has just taken place in one of the provincial towns of France. Over twenty yeare ago the wife of a prominent citizen gave birth to a li tie girl who was christened Camille, and whose birth, according to French law, was duly registered at the mayor's office. But as Camiile is a name that ii given to hoys as we'l as to girls in France, the imyor mude a mistake in enter ing the registration and set down ihe infant as being a boy. Time parsed on and the other day Mile. Camille who was on the point of being mar ried rtc ived a Lotice to report him self for military service. Owiug to the overwhelming red tapeim of French official matters, the p )or girl has had all the trouble in the world to prove that she is really a young woman and not a man at all. Moral : Mo It ers in France should never bestow upon their daughters names tint are masculine as well as feminine. Paris Cor. Pittsburg Bulletin. Joplin is going to pave her prin cipal stieets.

Two young men who have known each other nearly all their lives boarded a Trumbell avenue car the other d ly and sat down side by side. Each was busy with his own thoughts and did not speak. Finally one of the pair carefully put his hand in the other's overcoat pocket ani drew u a handkerchief. He was proceed ing t explore futher, when a pass-n-s.er on the opposite side who had been watching h m suddenly sprang up and grabbed him by the shoulder and pul ed him down, and then seiziug him by the throat he shnutjd ; "Thief! Thief j Stopthecar and call an officei , He's pick' d a pocket rih' here !" The one who was being choked cou'dn speak and when his friend iuterferred he was looked upon as a fool for hi3 sympathy and hustled a-ide. The other was dragged out and walloped around in the snow. and it was not until an nflioer'got hold of him that matters could be explained. Coustipation is a disease maker to all human beings.

Smilaxnt Wedding or Reception. t.'hh ago Herald. Smi.'ax is not now called iuto re quisition by first class florists at either wedding or reception. They will use cut flowers as much as possible. Fash ionable people have a great liking for cut flowers. They can get better re ults by rising them than in any other way. A great bunch of cut flowers in an urn or a vase or a cut gla S3 bowl is much more eflective than the made up piece. It is mo: e elegant. Ferns are now a substitute fi.r smilax, and ferns and cut flowers make a lovely combination. In funeral de signs ivy leaves and wheat are now given the preference in place of flow ers. Ivy is symbolical of time and wheat of age. There are few designs exhibited at funerals except in the country where tbe fashion holds on with a stronger grip Roses aud hyacinths in large bunches are also used at funerals in this city. They are considered to be "real swell." Vivid contrasts are made in the use of ribbons. A bunch of pink roses will be tied with a black ribbon and a bunch of white roses with a lavender coloied ribbon. The interior decora tion of the coffin is ab dished alto gether. It is a year since the fashion changed. When wedding engage mems are announced it is now custom ary for friends of tbe prospective bride to send buuche3 of fbwers tied with a ribbon of the sime color. Handle baskets and vases of flowers are also fashionable in this connection. A florist must be a certain extent in iu the pottery business if he wants to succeed in these times. The corsage bouquet is no longer iu vogue at eve ing and theatrical parties. In its place has been adopted what is known as the half round loose bunch tied with ribbons to match the lady's gloves. Ladies seldom attend a wed ding or a reception this year without using flowers iu their hair in place of ornaments. 3 O If Not Already Faniili ir To You All we ask is try a bottle of Maguire's Cundurango when snfleriog from Headache, Constipation, Fever, Disordered Liver, Indigestion, and other kindred affections.
