The Fire Around Lodtville.K very de
structive and terrible eoulhigration raged in
the mountains in the vicinity of Lloydsville,
Cambria county, lost Thnrsdity night. An
Altoonu pnHr gives the following account of
it: "The tiro had its origin in some refuse
matter in the yard of Pluck A Glunts saw
mill. Everything lieing intensely dry the
devouring clement spread rapidly In every
direction, endangering the mill, ns welt as the
milts of Hcynold und McFurlund. Besides
the destruction of timU-r, miles of tramways
and thousand of cords of bark were humcd.
The people of Lloydsille kept wntch all
night lest the flumes might attack their vil
lage. In fact the smoke of the conflagration
wo so dense that many feared suffocation if
they retired to lied. Parties who have been
on the ground represent the (Ire as very great
and destructive.''
Leg Broken. A Utahvllle correspondent
sends ns the particular of a painful accident
which happened to Mr. Charles Bicket.
while working on the tram-road at McFur
land's mill, near IJoydsille,on they'd inst.,
which resulted in a broken leg, besides other
injuries, some of w hich are internal, and may
nrove very dlsagreeuble, if not serious. The
circumstances which caused the accident
uppeur to be as follows: On the Haturduy
previous, (lie road wn lieing repaired by other
workmen. The removal of several plank w us
required at a point un the road where it is
tiOeen feet above the ground, and in replacing
them they were not nailed a they formerly
hud been. Mr. Bickers stepped on the end of
two of these, which tipped and precipitated
him to the ground, along with the two plank
indicated, two other hoards and a scantling
sixteen feet long, all of which alighted on hi
Itody and injured him as almve stuted. It is
hoiied that he will stsin be able to be about

owing to the extreme drouth prevailing, and

that nothing could lie done to save the large

lot of lumber, njiwurd of twehe million

The Tyrone Herald, of the a."ith inst.. cives
an instuiMteof Npcctilutive Life Insurance, und
coiumetiui on it as follows : "We hud thought,
us intimated elsewhere, that the bone-yard
shurks were alsiut giviiiK Tymne the cold
shfiulder, hut we were mistukeu a iVw, if not
mon so. An insurance raid was made on the
tow n yesterday, for a purpose that will herein
aptcur. Muux Kuutliuun, who is lingering
on the very edire of the grave, was recently
insured forSHsMKHi. Yestenlavit wasiiuictlv
iutimnted hy some one in the interest of tlte
grave-yard agents, that Manx wusaliout ready
to so, when a crowd of Huntingdon comity
agents apiieurrd on the scene, and alter eon
sultntion, it was decided that he couldn't die
easy unless a few more policies were issued.
These paKTs are culled 'death policies,' and
there is no word fool i 11 ir about it. They are
just what thev claim to he. When a subject
is in the art of dvinc, his triemla,' the death
hawks. iMunce upon him like huzjEunls uKn
mitriit carca, and fasten mm witn tne
irraiinliiiK inins of their insurance machinery.
Kaultmun wus tUwl over again, miti near as
we can OHcertain, is now insured tor almut
f'JtMMHK). The outcome of all this will he. old
Manx will die one nf these days, and hi
ehnritnlite 'friends,' the ghoulish polii-y hnhl-
ers, will come in for the spoils, suv ",ti,issi.
This may or may not he a legitimate business.
At anv rate these tellows follow it up with
impunity. Homebody ought to apply the
legal nipnere to these death-speculators, ana
if it is all right, let them gosh end. Iet them
enjoy their constitutional rights. There are.
no doubt, cases where these men. or some of
their gong, help their subject out of the way,
A good plan, and a iust one, to settle the ac
count with them, would be togetthetn heav

then hung them.

Hince the lutter imrt of June lust I have
been in Iowa, On my way here I visited
some ot (he principal cities 011 the Mississippi,
taking ad win t age of ateumlioat possuge on
ihe bosom of that clear stream. This river
is noted for its pure, clear water. At thnt
time, however, the stream was turbid. Its
Uinks were overflowing w ith the largest rlissl
known lor eighteen years. Among the point
of interest were theliovernnient buildings on
the island in the river lietween Iavenporl
und Bock Island, the fNhcrie and lumbering
mnnuluetorie. I hud seen a mini tier of saw-
ills in Illinois for manufacturing ouk lum
lier; but in Masculine, Iowa, I saw the first
pine logs. CliuUm, however, takes the lead

mills, unite in the siiutie in point 01 cnpnciiy

Bocky mountain.
My trip to the interior of Iowa ha lieen
full of interest. The puUicroad hern, a in
most nf the western rjlote. run mnillel and
at right angle. The wild prairie of the
north are gradually being turned into large
and productive w heat-nelus, sitrronnued hy
bruntilul hedge fences, wnue nrounu ine

much sulphur for smelting process'. I have
