dnly of the street commissioner to enforce this

fell there wero many pavements in tho most
thickly settled portions of the town that were
almost imnassiblo by reason of tho slush. If

About ten o'clock on Saturday night n bright
light was observed in the sky in (ho direction
f Danville. A llttlo later word was received
that tho Insano Asylum at that placo was burn
ing, There havo been many rumors ofloat, but
tho following is n correct account of the great
fire as nearly as wo can glean It from the dally
A few minutes nfter 8 o'clock Siturdnyere-
ing, during the ehnpel hour, tho dread cry of
firo was raised by so mo of tho attendants, and
on making n huirlcd examination, imoko was
discovered issuing from the door of nn unoccu
pied ward from the female side of the great
iilldlng, in what wns known ns tho cast wing.
This ward which was ono hundred feet in
ingth hnd been undergoing repairs for some
time. The wood work was being repainted
nd the walls kalsomlned, preparatory to its
When the attendants entered they hurried to
tho closet whero the hose was colled ready for
tho water to be luruod on at a moment's notice,
ut to their horror they discoveicd that tho
wooil work In tho clotct was on firo and the
hoso could not bo reached. Tho dust flue, or
small elevator, leading down to tho kitchen,
from this closet, furnlihed a draft and the
mouldering fire was spo;dily fanned into n
ainc, which shot upward and soon reached
the pine sheeting nnd felt under the slato roof.
It at once became apparent to Dr. Schultz aud
his assistants that there wns imminent danger
fa serious fire in that portion of the building,
but they did not imagine for a moment that
the enormous structure would be a smouldering
ruin before Sunday niht.
Tho hospital contained about four hundred
nnd ninety patients, one hundred nnd eighty of
whom wero females, nnd tho next movo was to
chango thoso In tho threatened part of the
building to the sido apparently free from dan
ger without exciting alarm. There was a ruih
ng hither and thither through the coirulors
and soon tho startling cry of fire was on every
lip. Tho females wero hurriedly removed to
tho wards in the wing west of the central build
ing occupied by tho quiet nialo patients, where
they were made ns comfortable ns pos'iblc. In
the meantime the tiro continued to make slow
and steady progress in tho roof and along thi
cornices, and by eleven o'clock tho situation
had becomo alarming. Many of the insane pa
tients wero sensibly impressed with the danger
that threatened them, and they became consid
erably excited. WTord wns sent to Danville to
hurry out the stenm fire engine, nnd telegrams
wero forwardod toSunbury and Milton, asking
for ns'btnnco. Upon inquiry tho firemen of
these places learned llint n supply of water was
not convenient, and as they did not have a suf
ficiency of iioso to reich the canal or river, it
was considered useless to send their engines to
the burning building and they wero not for
warded. The Danville engino was dragged through a
foot of Bnow to tho nsylum whorejan inadequate
supply of water was obtained from a small
brook in rear of tho hospital, but a the firo was
then eating its way through the sheeting un
derneath the slatoroof at a height of four and
fivo stories, they could scarcely reach it with
their limited supply of hose, and they failed
to make any impression on tho devouring ele
ment. Tho flromen worked failhfully, howev
er, but their engino soon became clogged with
mud sucked up from tho bed of the shallow
brook nnd wns partially disabled in n short
AH ArrALLTKQ SCENE.
It was now nfier midnight and the sky was
lighted up with the glaro of tho burning build
ing ns the flames belched from the upper win-
lows and through the roof. The wholo popu
lace of the town wns on tho alert nnd hundreds
f persons hurried out to tho nsylum to render
whnt tt'sintanco thoy could. As the night wore
away tho eceno became grander nnd finally as
sumed appalling proportions. The thought
that nearly five hundred persons in nil stages
of lunacy were impri'pned within the stone
walls of the enormous buildings, and in danger
of being consumed in the fiery furnace raging
wilhin, was startling in the extreme, and hun
dreds turned pale as they gazed upon tho ter
rifying spectacle. Dr. Schultz was now con
vinced that tho greater portion of tho asylum
was doomed to destruction and lie at once gavo
orders to remove all tha patients to the out
buildings in the rear, which consisted of tho
boiler house, laundry, slora&e rooms, work
shops and biilto house, which were located
about one hundrod and fifty feet from tho main
BEMOV1NO THE IUTIENTH.
Now commenced tho most touching scene of
Ih is night of terror, the removal of tho patients
from their comfortable quarters to tho out
buildings. They were hurried out by their at
tendants and escorted to tho temporary rooms
provided for them. Many of them wero wild
with excitement and could not realize what
was being done, whilst others comprehended
the true situation nnd were anxious to flco to n
placo of snfety. It wns necessary to hurry out
come of the patients in a half drei-sed condition
to escape the suffocating smoko which was roll-
ng through the corridors, fc'orreof them did
not hnve time to get their hats, boots or coats,
but special efforts were made to savo as much
of the bedding as posiblo in order to make
them comfortable. Thoso without shoes march
ed through tho snow in their stocking feet, nnd.
others shivered ns the frosty nlr touched them.
All were secured, however, without the loss of
n single Hie nnd they havo been kept in as good
condition as possible,
All Iho furniture, much of the clothing of
ho ipmates, the library, and everything be
longing to Dr. Schultz, who resided in the
builJIng was destroyed. Ho devoted his wholo
lime to seeing that tho unfortunates confided
to his charge were saved and never thought of
himself or hi own property.
OlliaiN OP THE FIRE.
The origin of the fire is attributed to Bponl-
neons combustion in tlio ward wuero ino paini
crs had been at work. The theory is that rags
had become snluratod with turpenllno and oth
er chemicals, and were piled in the closet whero
the fire broko out. As tha building was kept
at an even temperature of about peventy do
grees day and night, combustion might tako
placo under such conditions; or fire might
havo been communicated to rags or other com
bustlblo matorlal from n pipe or ligar used by
some of the workmen, ami smouldered till it
gained sufficient strength to burst forth into
Hume. At prat It was thought that the fire
originated from a gas explosion, but ths could
not bo, as uo gas was known to bo lighted In
tho wanl nfier the workmen had retired, Many
thought that tho building was as nearly fire
proof as it was possible to make it, but the se
quel shows how badly they were mistaken.
THE CHEAT BUlLDINU.
Dr. Schultz superintended tho construction
of tho building from tho foundation up, and
took cxtraoidinary rare to have it nude as free
ts possible from firo. There wero hoso on ev
ery floor, and an abundance of water in the
retervoir, but when the firo gained a lougmout
In tho roof it could not bo I cached and at
titice be camp uncontrollable. The walls of Iho
wings wore itono, poatly df.ened with brick
filling; the lloors were of pilch pine nnd tho
doors of wood, and ns tho heat Increased the
I llib soon Ignited and the great corildors be
came a seething mass of flame- which roared
like a furnace aud heated the thick walls en
lirely through, The great building was about
J ,1 13 ftet in length, and three, fair and fire
ilOtUs in height, The centre building wm
802 feet in depth, and tho wholo covered nn
area of nearly ono and llnoc-lourlhs acres.
To this ccntint building were attached tho
wings, extending east nnd west. There wera
twenty-two wards nbout ono hundred feet in
length, nnd there were nccomtnodatlons for
seven hundred patients. The entire series of
buildings wero uippllcd with every conveni
ence on nil the floors, and nothing that would
contributo to tho comfort of the pntienls wns
omitted. The work of buildlnij was commenced
cloven years ago, nnd tho last wing wns com
pleted about two years ago. Tlio entire sum
expended by the Stato was nbout one million
of dollars, nnd tho loss caused by the burned
pcrllon wilt reach about ihrco hundred nnd fif
ty thousand dollars, on which there Is an In
surnuco of two hundred and fifty thousand dol
lars. SECOND ALARM.
At neon Sunday It was thought that tho two
west wings wero safe and Dr. Schultz com
menced making nrrnngements to hnvo them
heated nnd put In order for the malo patients,
there being room enough to accommodate them
nil, Tho female patients would havo to bo re
moved to other hospitals, as ho could not
care for them. Later in tlio afternoon the fire
workid its way into the roof of that portion of
the strucluro which had been regarded ns safe
and a second alarm was raitml. Telegrams
were sent to Mlllon and Sunbury, asking for
their steam fire engines, which wero promptly
forwarded by Supcrlendcnt Relnhart, of tho
Catawlssa dlvUion of the Reading railroad, nnd
the Lackawanna nnd Bloomsburg brought tho
other. Upon tho arrival of the engine 8 nt4:30
p. m., connections wero ruado from the hospi
tal to tho canal, nnd n strenm was got on the
firo which stayed its progress and rendered it
sufficiently safo to transfer a good portion of
the male patients from their temporary quartern
in the outbuildings to the wards in tho west
Many of tho patient have been removed.
Tho most violent have been taken to other asy
lums, whilo milder ones were taken charge of
by their friends. On Sunday morning scyeral
male patients came to this place, having walked
from Danville during tho night. Thoy seemed
dazed and could give uo account of the fire. One
man was provided for nt tho jail until his
friends could bo notified of his whereabouts.
There nas a largo crowd of visitors to sea tho
ruins on Sunday nnd Monday.

IMPORTANT rOSTAI. UlIANOK.
The Postmaster General has issued nu order
defining the classes of ninil mutter which pro
duces na important change in the postal ratts,
and which should bo noted by nil. Beginning
last week, firl-cl.its matter,threo cents per half
ounce, will includo all matter wholly or par
tially in writing. The only exceptions to the
rule are; Postai;card,corrected proof sheets nnd
the manuscript accompanying tho same; tho
dalo of issue of a circular, the name of tho
parly addressed and of the sender thereof, and
mere correction of typographical errors there
in. On third class matter, or on tho wrapper
enclosing the same, may bo written the nnme
and address of the sender with the word
"from" nnd there may nlso be mndo marks or
lines to draw attention to a particular word,
passage or article. On tho cover or blank
leaves of n book, or of any printed matter of
the third class, mny be placed a simple manu
script dedication or inscription, but must be
confined to this and not contain anything that
partakes of the nature of a persounl correspon

sender may write his own name or nddress,
preceded by tho word "from" and rJso the
number nd tho names of tho articles
enclosed, and they mny nlso write upon or at;
tach to any such nrtieles, by tag or label, a
mark or number, name or letter of tho alpha
bet, for purposo of identification.
This, it will be perceived, abolishes the fine
drawn lines between bills with or without re
ceipts, commercial papers, deeds, policies, etc.,
signed and unsigned, etc., etc, and pimply re

To state It in short, the rule now is this: If

Nothing elioultl bo bolter appreciated by n patronizing public than
rclittblo merchants of whom thoy can make their purchases, confident
that thoy will not misrepresent their goods in order to mako Bales.
This is oftentimes a great temptation to the merchant and in strictly
adhering to his principle, ho loses many sales, which tiro made by his
less scrupulous neighbors. In no business is there greater chance for
deception than in tho Hardware trade, as tho stock to a great extent
is manufactured of steel or iron. Fancy paint or bronze together with
a high polish, raiders it difficult tit limc3 to distinguish tho materials
find you havo to rely on cither tho roputiitinn of tho manufacturer, if
ho has ono, or tho honesty of tho dealer. In many cases you would
never know, if misrepresented to you, and tho merchant's profits
thoroby largely increased, which makes it a great temptation to dis
honest dealers. Never in any instance, have we misrepresented an
article in our storo, nor do wo knowingly allow any employee to do
so a,1.d wo trust nny nrticle bought of us' and not found as represent
ed, will be promptly returned. When wo find it necessary to uso such
means in order to mako sales, wo shall movp our stock to some point
where square dealing is better appreciated. Wo do not claim to carry
the cheapest line ot goods. Our aim is to give dollar for dollar in
value. In selecting our goods, our first consideration is .to buy only
from reliable manufacturers of standard goods, and secondly to buy as
low ns we can, and this is all wo ask of you, examine our goods, get
our prices, and if neither suits you, don't buy. We cannot ask vou
to do what wo refuse to do ourselves, nor do wc allow the forcing sys
tem, i. c, trying to talk you into something you don't want. We
presume you know what you want when you come to see us, and leave
such matters to your judgment as you will bo better suited in the end.
Ihanking the public for past favors, wo trust, by strictly adhering to
our principle of Square Dealing, and giving dollar for dollar in value,
to hayo a fair share of your patronage in tho future.

wholo stock to correspond, "Wo
iuvo been selling this make of

ittvo been civinc excellent satis
faction, which warrants us in kcop-
ng a larger assortment than over.
.'oor brushes are dear at any price.
Our low prices together with ex
cellent quality you will find wor
thy ot your atlontton.
"Wo would call the attention ot
to driving public to our assort
ment ot whips. In no store in tho
county can bo found half tho stock
wo have on our rack, Our stock
contains a errcat variety of styles
uid material,fancy and plain, run-
C in price irom 15 cents to
$3.00. In making our selections,
our first move wa3 to find a relia
ble manufacturer, and to confine
ourselves to but one lino of goods,
thereby avoiding a great deal ot
worthless auction stock. We try
to sell a3 good a whip aa. yoiitaiv
