A DIRK DISASTER.
FLOURING MILL EXPLOSION.
The Town of I.ltetitlelU, Illinois, N rail
Demolished hy a Series of Disasters.
An explosion resembling an earthquake and
destroying nearly $1,000,(XX) worth of property
occurred at Litchfield, Illinois, on the 21st
The loss ~f one life and the Injury of a uum
ber or people resulted from the catastrophe.
Practically every structure in Litchfield wus
wrecked, and score* of dwellings rendered
uninhabitable. Panic reigned for hour* and
details of the terrible affair were obtained
xx Ith the utmost difficulty.
About 3:15 a. m. an alarm of tire was
turned In and upon Investigation It developed
that the Litchfield Planet Mills, located in tbe
southwest part of the city and said to be one
of the largest, if not the larges’, single flour
making establishments In the world, was In
tlamcs Before the firemen arrived upon the
scene the fire had gained sueb headway that
for some time nothing could be done tocheck
It and It seemed as If the enMie south part of
the towu would be consumed.
Tbe fire Is supposed to have originated by a
spark from a passing locomotive fulling In
"lie of the dust room*. The luxe ami hook
and ladder companies hud hardly succeeded
In gettlug their apparatus in working order
when an explosion occurred, appalling iu vio
lence, which was caused by the flames' sudden
contact with pent-up mill dust. The explo
sion shook the earth over a singularly wide
area, while the atmospheric concussion was
felt as far a* Decatur, n distance of fifty
miles.
The firemen battled with the flames for
three long hours, finally subduing them to
such sn extent that adjoining property was
saved. The explosion broke large plate-glass
windows lu a majority of stoic* In the • itv,
prostrated almost every one on the street,
shook house* li>o*c from their foundations,
and jarred the machinery in the Litchfield
t ar and Machine company to such an extent
that bail to l>e suspended.
The head millwright. Mr. John Carve, of
Waterloo. lowa, in making an effort to save
his tools In tbe burning building.was stunned
by the explosion, siul endeavoring to cucupe,
xv as pinned against the smoke-stack and
burned to death. When found about three
hours afterwards bis log* were burned off at
the hips. The right nrtn anil left hand were
entirely consumed ami tils body was burned
to a perfect crisp.
A large elevator, standing Immediately
ac ross the Wabash track west of the mill, and
containing some 250,004) bushel* of wheat,
was quickly In flamos. and together with It*
valuable contents burned to the ground. Ten
or twelve cars of wheat 'landing on the house
track were reduced lo ashes. A large pile of
debris ten or fifteen feet high fell on the main
track of the Wabash railroad, and n* a con
sequence traffic on that road was badly Im
paired. The Western I'nlon telegraph wires
were also down, which makes matters a great
deal worse. A number of serious but not
necessary fatal accidents were reported.
Tbe night watchman in the mill xvas hurl
ed through a window and badly Injured.
Window glass were broken ami chimneys
blown down In towns ten miles distant.
Nearly every house within u radius of two
blocks of the mill was badly wrecked. All
the plate glass In the stores on Main ami
State streets were blown out.

the suburbs of Rome, another outrage wa* at
tempted In the city, being the second of the
kind within the city proper In less than a
week. The first occurred on Friday last at the
Anclnl Mattel palace, the residence of Hon.
William Potter, the United .State* minister.
The last outrage wa- perpetrated at the resi
dence of tbe Marquis Saechetll, grand mar
shal of the papal court, and has caused a feel

Islands, reached San Francisco on the 20tli
and Immediately left for Honolulu 011 the
revenue cutter Richard Hush, which had been

Regarding the object of his trip Mr. Blount
laid: "The public seem to have the idea
that 1 am loaded to the guards with instruc
tions, whereas the plain truth Is that 1 have
received practically no Instructions from
President Cleveland or any one else. My mil
lion Is to Investigate the whole question of
annexation, to determine the sentiment of the
foreigners a* well a* of the natives, and to
conclude a* far as possible from the facts
whether It would be advantageous to this
country to annex the Islands. My mind is
free from any prejudice, and I am prepared
to give an Impartial bearing to all shies. The
cutter Rush will heat my disposal, and hi It I
will visit the other Islands after completing
my work at Honolulu.
"Of course the foreign sentiment can he

of the other Island* may have very dllTercnl
views from the Kanakas of Honolulu. lam
Ignorant ot the Hawaiian language, hut with
a trustworthy Interpreter it ought not to he
dllllcult to get at the real sentiment of the na
tive*. What the additional Instructions from
Washington may contain remains to be seen.
No question in recent American politics so
sadly needs the light of pure truth thrown
upon It as this Hawaiian question, for It has
been muddled be ->-oeals t<> sentiment and
prejudice.”

ADDRESS: SAN FRANCISCO, CAL.
A CRIMINAL LONG DEAD.
HE IS NOW MADE A HERO BY
ENGLISH ROMANCERS.
HU I.lfoOno Tong Rfrord of Crafty, Cow
ardly nml Squalid Crlmai—Unused
at Tyburn Hill In 17«S—
Nefarious Career.
A hundred and sixty-seven ycai’R
have elapsed since Jonathan Wild
was hangod at Tyburn, and the chief
incidents in his nefarious career havo
been carefully transmitted from gen
eration to generation in tile succes
sive “Malefactors’ Registers,’” “New
gate Calendars.” “Criminal Record
ers” and “Chronicles of Crime,’’which
ingenious bucks have compiled from
those terrible trustworthy authori
ties. the Old Hailey sessions papers.
Jonathan Wild, indeed, seems to
have been throughout his life an in
carnation of rascality, duplicity and
knavery of every kind. He was born
at Wolverhampton late in the reign
of Charles II., of decent parents, who
gave him a plain education and ap
prenticed him to a buekle-makor at
Hirmingham. When quite a young
journeyman he murriod, and after tlio
birth of u son ho deserted his wife
and child and came to London. Ho
worked for a while at his trade, but
dissolute hubits got him into debt in
Wood-street Compter, whero ho no
doubt umused his enforced idleness
by devising schemes for swindling
tlio public when he should regain his
liberty.
In tho compter, too, he formed the
acquaintance of a notorious fomalo
pickpockot named Mary Milincr, who
liatl been within nn aco of hanging
half a score of limes, but had man
aged at last to get arrested for debt.
By some moans cr another both
Jonathan and Milincr obtained their
freedom ami opened a littlo public
houso in Cripplogato. As tho lady
pickpocket was on terms of intimate
acquaintance with most of the dis
tinguished thieves in tho metropolis,
she proved a valuable assistant to
Mr. Wild, whoso tavern became n
popular resort for felons.
There was no law at tho period for
tho punishment of the receivers of
stolen goods, ami Jonathan drove for
a considerable time a roaring trade as
a “fence.” His practices, however,
were considerably interrupted by tlie
passing of an act of parliament in
dicting fourteen years* transportation
on all persons convicted of receiving
goods knowing them to be stolon.
Tlie unahnshed Mr. Wild then pro
ceeded to call n meeting of the most
notorious robbers in London, and,
after pointing out to them that if
they took their booty to unscrupulous
pawnbrokers they would not receive
more than a fourth part of tho value
of tlie goods, ho proposed that they
should bring all their plunder to him.
and he would negotiate for restoring
it to tho owners, receiving a reward
for doing so. which roward ho would
divide with his predatory friends.
Tlie plan met with the approbation
of tho thieves, and for some years
Wild carried on tho business with
brilliant success. Ho bad positively
tlie assuranco to open an office in the
Old Hailey for negotiating with per
sons who had boon robbed, and, to
onhanco his assumption of respecta
bility, he acted ns assistant to
Charles Hitchon, tho city marshal,
who was almost as great a rogue as
liis subordinate.
This worthy couple used to parade
tlie streets from Temple Bar to the
Minories, searching disorderly housos
and apprehending suspected persons,
and at the same time extorting large
bribes from those who justly feared
to be brought in contact with tho
law.
Tho two rascals, however, foil out,
and eucli pursued his own villainous
way. Hitehcn had a turn for litera
ture. and attacked Wild in a pam
phlet railed “Tlie Regulator; or The
Discovery of Thieves and Thief-Tak
ers,” which drew a vehement reply
from Wild.

As a thief-taker. Wild, paradoxical
as it muy appear did render somo
paltry kind of sorvice to tho stato;
but it is operations as a receiver of
stolon goods had made him a public
nuisance, and in 1718 un act was
passed declaring every person guilty
of u capital offense who should accept
a reward in consideration of restor
ing stolen effects without prosecut
ing tho thief. This, it might bo
thought, would havo sufficed to an
nihilato Jonathan’s business, but, by
consummate dcxtority.ho contrived to
ovado the law and proceeded as before
with such success that ho was able to
open a branch office, which was con
ducted by his man Abraham. He
hud agents abroad, to whom he trans
mitted watches and jewelry, and he
actually chartered a couple of sloops
which plied between tho Thames and
Rotterdam laden with plunder which
lie had received.
At length, through n quarrel with
an accomplice, Wild was arrosted,
and, after a lengthy trial, ho was
found guilty und sentenced to death.
He was at tho time in wretchod
health, and attributed his illness to
several fractures of tho skull which
lie hud received while arresting
criminals, and to his throat having
been cut by a notorious ruffian named
“Bluoskin.”
To the last ho indulged in hopes of
obtaining tho royal morcy, and
bragged of tho dukes, marquises and
carls to whom ho had rendered ser
vices; but on May 2-1, 1725, Jonathan
Wild, “Tho Groat,” as Fielding iron
ically calls him, was taken in a cart
from Newgate to Tyburn and hangod.
Ho hud drunk u large quantity of
laudanum on tho night preceding his
execution, and was in a half-stupcflod
state when ho was cast off tho laddor.
A meaner, moro sordid and moro
ignoble rascal it is difficult to con
ceive. His life was one long tissue of
crafty, cowardly, squalid crimes, yot.
thanks to the genius of tho author of
“Tom Jones” and the dramatic power
of Harrison Ainsworth, tho memory
of Jonathan Wild still lives.
A Perpetual Sacred Fire.
in tlie peninsula of Abehoron,
formerly belonging to Persia, but
now a part of Russia, there is a per
petual or, rather, what tho natives
call an eternal sacred liro, which ia
known to have boon burning contin
ually for moro than 2,000 years. It
rises from an irregular orifice of
uhout twolvo feet in depth and 120
feot square. The flames, which aro
constant, riso to a height of from six
to eight foot, unaccompanied with
smoke or disagrecablo smell, waving
back and forth with tho wind liko a

Soil Matter.
If tho nutritious matter at tho soil
is carried down below tho roots of
some plants the plant form may bo
unavailable. Hut all plants do not
feed alike, as somo reach down into
tho subsoil and bring up tho plant
food again, which is stored in tho
stalks and leaves. It is in this man
ner that clover performs such excel
lent service; and tho fact explains
why clover always leaves tho land in
better condition than before, when a
clovor sod is turned under.
British Justice.
Tho severity of British justlco was
well illustrated at Northampton re
cently, whero a trial for murder was
in progress. Tho jury having been
permitted to take a lunch in tlioir
room, one of their number took tills
opportunity to step out and post a
letter. Tho judge, hearing of this,
promptly gavo the offending juror a
strong lecture and fined him $250.
Ho dismissed tho jury and a new one
was impaneled.
