Suddenly our practiced ears uauylit the
distant boom of tho tiro bell. Everybody
else beard it mid the tiled was electrical.
While one of the muu run up the bidder
aud began to hammer nwny at our station
bell, the officers hurried on their uniforms
and sprang on to their horses, kept ready

with a huge wisp of horsehair, the lieu
tonaut seizing bis standard a spear, from
the eud of which hung a horse tail. Menii-

went into the snowbound street, up which

Shinagawa seemed to have sprung into
active life during the few minutes which
bad elapsed since tho first notes of the lire
Men, women and children swarmed out
of every doorway, clustered about the lirst
floor balconies, and even crowded the roofs,
all chattering, gesticulating and uttering
exclamations of terror and wonder as they
paztd at the broad lurid glare in the sky.
Far away as they were from the scene of
Mtiflngraliou, there was uo retiring after
their lirst curiosity had been satisfied. A
man in Victoria street, Westminster, who
. es t he reflection of a lire, say, in t he city,
may go to bed with a certain sense of se
curity, but becaiiso twu or three miles
separate the Japanese spectator from the
burning houses lie can be by no means sure
that in the course, of an hour or so he may
not l ave to rush out of his house with as
many of his Lares and Penates as he can
When we reached the locality of the fire
a striking scene was presented to our eyes.
From halt' a duzeu houses the flames were
bursting forth with almost demoniacal
noise aud fury. Jlalf a dozeu more had
already been gutted and were mere shape
less shells of smoldering timber. Hun
dreds of men and women were staggering
out of the houses in the line of fire beneath
the weight of their humble household
jjoods, whilo piles of bedding, domestic
utensils, stocks in trade and all sorts of
lumber lay about in the snow. More than
once a (juartct of men swiftly passed us,
bearing on their shoulders a shapeless
something wrapped in ilark cloth, and wa
knew that the fire had rlaimed other vic
tims than mere shanties of paper and
wood. ( Hir squirts got to woik with com
mendable smartness, and, as there hap
pened to be 11 n abundance of water, were
Boon pouring their feeble dribbles on the
Thud! I hud! thud! went the squirt han
dles, but the flames seemed to roar with
laughter and dance as if in mockery of the
poor little thiu s-tiviitriN of water which
were turned on them, and drove the lieu
tenant from house to house with such ra
pidity that more than once it seemed as if
nothing but a miracle could save him.
Meanwhile tho hook and ladder corps was
hard at v,ork, aud if we smiled with con
tempt at the puny efforts of the "engines"
we could not withhold our hearty applause
nt the indomitable pluck, the energy and
the activity of the poor little fellows who
manipuhited the hooks and ladders. Salamander-like,
they seemed to revel in work
where the llames were fiercest and the dan
ger groat est.
But cui bono all this heroic dash and
self sucrilice unbacked by common sense?
We three representatives of the west
watched it all with almost a feeling of
anger that, for the sake of a little pride
pocketing, each a wanton destruction of
hearths and homes, such a risking of valu
able lives should be tolerated by a people
in so many other respects advanced think
ers and practical reformers. One engine
from Watling street or a single American
lire company could have nipped the lire in
the bud au hour before, but we were in
vited guests, and besides, being quite
aware of the delicate grounds upon which
the relationship between ns and our Japa
nese hosts stood, were diffident in proffer
liut at last we could stand it no longer,
for the lire, ably seconded in its ravages
by a brisk northeast wind, threatened to
consume the entire quarter as far as the
city boundaries, bo we pushed our way
forward to where the captain was thunder
ing anathemas and exhortations in a man
ner which plainly betrayed that he had
lost self control, and with due humility
suggested that if the hook and ladder com
pnuy was to turn itsattentiou to a group
of yet unturned houses standing in the
direct lino of the fire instead of wasting
energy worthy of a better cause upon houses
which nothing could save n gap would be
created over which the flames, furious as
they were, would hardly leap.
The old gentleman did not welcome our
suggestion with enthusiasm, nor did we
expect that he would. Indeed he affected
to treat it cavalierly, and under the plea
that we werestuuding in u dangerous posi
tion motioned ns back Into the crowd. But
we ha'l the satisfaction of observing that
the extreme urgency of tho situation had
prompted him to act on our advice, und we
presently saw the hook and ladder com
pany limber up and dash oil at the double
toward tlo group of houses indicated by
us. The inhabitants of these shanties,
squatting outside with their heaps of
goods and chattels, evidently clinging with
true Old World tenacity to the hope that
the gods or the firemen or something
would stave calamity off their homes, re
monstrated warmly when the hook and
ladder men told them they were about
to take the unheard of step of pulling
down untouched houses, but the captain
riding up soon silencsd their objections In
a harangue which from its sound was evi
dent ly very much nioro forcible than ele
gant, ami the work of destruction, or rather
of wilralion, commenced, and in a very
few minutes the hooks awl battering poles
had made an open tpace which was an ef
fectual bar to the progress of the flames.
But even they seemed to be imbued with
a spirit of patriotism, for they made fierce
efforts to leap the gulf and so nullify the
counsel of the "foreign devils."
But feebler and feebler grew their leaps,
and gradually they subsided into a grum
bling and snorting anil hissing which
seemed to express almost .in language
battled rage. So at o'clock in the morn
ing the great Shinagawa lire was staid,
and we returned to the lire station with
our hosts and their bruised and. singed
lubordinntes. Temple Bar. ,

Laughable Notice That Muy Be Seen on
New York Thoroughfare.
If the casual observer or stronger In New
York is of a humorous turn of mind he
will find a great deal in the signboards of
minor merchants not only amusing but
Probably the most appropriate and con
cise sign in New York is one on Second av
enue, near Kighty-sixth street, which
leads, '"Wet Goods." On the Bowery a
cheap restaurant offers to give you "Coffee
and Cakes Off the Griddle."
A large sign in Fulton street of a doleful
kind simply says, "The Neglected Photog
rapher." A rat poison man seems to be
jealous of his fame, at the first glance,
but a closer inspection shows that it is
business policy that prompts him to say,
"The Original I . All Others Come
Later." There are soveral "Original IV
in the neighborhood. A glazier in South
Fifth avenue has a large illuminated sign,
showing on one side a picture of a boy car
rying a ladder one end of which has gone
through a large show window. Under
neath the picture are the words, "Glass
Put out by Cufulessness." On the reverse
side there is a very good picture of tha
proprietor of the gla-Her shop putting in
the glass, accompanied by the words,
"Glass Put in by" the proprietor. On
South street, near Dover, a beer saloon has
in front a picture of a gigantic schooner
with the warning, "No Two Men Allowed
to Drink Out of the Same Schooner."
A huly of color in West Thirty second
street informs passers by of her culling as
follows: "goln Out To Witewashin aud
skrubbin taken iX uuD Dun Hear!"
Whet her she is a disciple of the late Josh
Billings or follows her own sweet will in
the matter of orthography is a matter of
profound conjecture. "Broken Bones Set
and Mended Xo Pain," is the way an
umbrella repairer attracts trade, in Eighth
avenue, near One Hundred and Forty-fifth
street. Fourth avenue has a baker who
advertises "Pies, Open All Night." You
can get "Pic3, Pastry and Oysters" at a
West Broadway beanery.
"Fresh Salt Oysters, ulso Larger Bier,"
can be had in East Ninth street. "Boots
Polished Inside" is a familiar old friend on
Sixth avenue. There is a "classical" bar
ber on Houston street, and a "Hotel do
Horse" in East Broadway. A laundryman
calls his business "A Society for the En
couragement of Wearing Clean Shirts,"
and an independent go-as-you-please speller
announces that he does "Orl kines of hour
ling with teems." That women are fast
usurping all of men's work is shown by a
Madison street sign reading, "Mrs. Capt.
McCoy, instructor of prautical navigation."
Some people seein to have taken special
pains to pick out a business which would
harmonize with their names thus, Herr
Weinbeer keeps a saloon, John Schwab
makes mops, Kaltwasser & Co. ure in the
mineral water business, and Coftin is a
druggist. William Shotte aud Jonathan
Fell deal in sportsmen's supplies, but, odd
ly enough, Mr. Halter is a shoemaker.
Monkey sells monkeysand Mr. Ode is not
a poet, but a confectioner. Virtue deals in
Bibles, and Hell is a carpenter. Tennyson
is an electrician, Milton is a newsman aud
Fielding a druggist. Angell makes pianos,
und Devill is a fresco painter. Westmin
ster Abbey keeps a grocery in Front street.

New Mexico's First Circus.
I was. living in Albuquerque, N. M.,
when the first circus struck that country.
Few people in that country at that time
either spoke or read the English language.
Cole came to the country with his show
and soon learned that the natives did not
read anything but Spanish. He had his
cuts with him and the office with which I
was connected took them and put in the
reading matter in Spanish. The church in
that section at that time ruled everything,
as it does today. Cole was advised of that
fact aud was told that he would have to
get the clergy to indorse his show before
the laymen would patronize it. He em
ployed couriers to take the bills and go
into the country with them and give them
to the priests. At the same time he sent
o each priest complimentary tickets to
The result was that the priests talked
favorably of the coming exhibit and two
or three days before the circus spread its
tents in Albuquerque the natives began to
arrive from the interior and camped out
all about the town. I never saw such a
motley assembly before or since. And
while tho circus remained I have forgot-'
ten how long it was the natives staid, and
a more enthusiastic audience no circus
ever had, I will venture to assert. I will
also venture the assertion that Cole was
the first aud ouly circus man to interest
the church in behalf of his show in order
to draw a crowd. Chicago Tribune.
A Lover In 1701.
My present suit aud service are paid to a
certain lady, who is as fearful of receiving
any tokens of my affection as I am of offer
ing them. I am only permitted to admire
her at a distance; an ogle or a leer are all
the advances I dure make; if I move but a
finger, it puts her all in a sweat; and,
like the sensitive plant, she would shrink
and die away at a touch. I also once
plucked up courage sufficient to attempt
squeezing her by Uie hand, but she resisted
my attack by so close a touch of her fist
that my grasp was presented with nothing
but sharp pointed knuckles aud a long
thumb nail, and I was directly after sa
luted with a violent strokeon my jawbone.
If I walk out with her, I us all my en
deavors to keep close to her side, but sua
whisks awuy from me as though I had
some catching distemper about me. In
short, sir, I begin to despair of ever com
ing in close contact with her. But what
is still more provoking, though she keeps
me at so respectful a distance, she tamely
permits a strapping fellow of the guards
to pat her on the cheek, play with her
hand, and even approach her lips, and
that, too, in my presence. Bonnel Thorn

"Look at the presents Buchel made to
every one," says the panegyrists. They
forgot to mention that an hour afterward
she regretted her generosity, and from that
moment she never left off scheming how to
get the thing bock. Every one knew this.
Beauvallet, to. whom she gave a magnifi

her, said: "I'll havo a chain put to it,

she made a present of a ring, bowed low

she then led a diamond; a gentleman at
her elbow whispered to her, "Why didn't
you lead a trump?" "Oh," said she, "I

them to look at." Her partner took the
diamond trick, and then led back the king

him, and said: '. .
"What's the faro on this road?"
"Don't they collect It?"
"Certainly not. You buy a ticket at the

"That's strange," snld the man with the
unused nickel. "Somehow I've slipped in
without paying. You see,1 he added con

"I think I had lietter pay," said theCall

How Distant Is Nova?
We know nothing of the distance of the
Nova from our system, but the assump
tion is not an improbable one that it was
as far away from us us the Nova of 1876,
for which Sir Hubert Ball failed to find
any parallax. It this be so, the emission
of light suddenly set up in the very faint
stars, certainly within two duys, and pos
sibly, as in the case of tbe Nova of 1S00,
within a few hours, was much greater
than tbe light emitted by. our sun. Yet
within some some fifty days after its dis
covery, at the end of January, its light fell
to about tho one-three-hundredth part, and
in some three months to the one-ten-thousandth
part. So long as its spectrum
could be observed, the chief features re
Under what conditions could we suppose
the suu to cool down sufficiently fur its
light to decrease to a similar extent in so
short a time, and without the incurring of
muterial changes In tbe solur spectrum?
It is therefore scarcely conceivable that
we have to do with the conversion of
gravitational energy into light and heat.
On the view we have ventured to suggest,
the rapid calming down, after some sway
ing to aud fro of the tidal disturbances
and tbe closing in again of the outer and
cooler gases, together with the want of
transparency which often comes iu under
such circumstances, might account reason,
ably for the very rapid and at first curi
ously fluctuating waning of the Nova, as
well as for the want of changes in the
spectrum. William Huggins.in Fortnight
The Confessor of the Fifteenth Century,
Accustomed as we ore to modern ideas
aud customs, it is hard to comprehend the
genuine father confessor of the Fifteenth
century, the supreme counselor of the
sovereigns in virtue of his office and in the
confidence of the confessional. Fray Her
nando de Talavera, first prior of the mon
astery of El Prado, in Valludolid, later
bishop of Avila aud lastly archbishop of
Granada, when seated in the confessional
deemed his seat higher than the throne,
and held himself to be tbe dispenser of the
earthly and eternal salvation of the sov
Even in his first confession he had an al
tercation with the queen, for when Isabella
desired to confess either standing or sitting
he replied that she should do neither, but
kneel at his feet. He was as rightly able
to call himself minister of state as of the
treasury, and as well minister of the treas
ury as of instruction and fine arts, without
question as to tbe ministry of good be
havior; and so Isabella confided to his zeal
the management of the debt equally with
tbe choice of her daily reading in the royal
library, and asked his counsel alike con
cerning the most important decrees and
the most ordinary household alluirs. tm

On Aerial Navigation.
In a paper on modern aerial navigation,
read by Captain J. D. Fullerton, K. h., be
fore the Royal United Service institution.
the object was to show that the science of
aeronautics was based upon simple rules
aud common sense, and not upon wild and
vague theories opposed to all principles of
nature. Captain Fullerton divided aerial
navigation intotwodistinct branches: Bui

lighter than air, aud aeration or naviga

DeHcribing the requirements of a pro
posed war balloon, he said thee were that
it should be able to carry three or four pas
sengers, a supply of explosive shells and a

to travel at the rate of about thirty tulles
an hour on a still day, which would enable
it to keep up with almost any warship
afloat. London Nature.
The Exodus of Organ Grinder,
The first warm day of spring will see
those who have wintered in the city pack
their ponderous organs on their backs and
make for tike provinces. They scatter all
over the country, going as far west as
Denver and all through the ew England
states. They work their way, as a rule,
tramping oftentimes from town to town
lugging their fifty pound instruments
through the hot, dusty country for a score
of miles to make probably a few dollars,
and then on to the next. The monkey
long since made his exit from the cities,
and it is only rarely that they are now seen
in the small towns. A man in Brooklyn
made a fortune in raising and training
them, and he received often as much as
fifty dollars for a well trained monkey.

The Boy's Inmost Thought.
Alden's mother was a woman of more
than medium height, weighing nearly iiOO
pounds. She was subject to severe "heart
attacks," and after one that nearly proved
fatal and while anticipating a return that
would end her life she called Alden to her
bedside to give him a few parting words of
motherly counsel, so necessary to a boy of
six years. With the thought of a near de
mise to give pathos and earnestness to her
remarks, she spoke of leaving him and
showed him what ho must do to grow up
a good man after she was gone. The con
versation seemed to make the desired im
pression and he was so sober and thought

The Sweet Tooth.
In most cases where we find consid
erable quantities of sugar conspicuously
massed in any part of a plant organism
the sweet ' jmoe u placed there on pur
pose to be eaten. - In comparatively
small masses it il sorted in flowers or
elsewhere for the use of insects. In
larger amounts it is stored in fruits for
the use of birds and mammals. And it
is these eonspiouoas storehouses of na
tive sugar that man in tho first instance
began . to 6eize upon for his own pur
poses. Himself a descendant of the
fruit eating monkeys, he has always re
mained to a great' extent a fruit eater.
In tho tropics to this day he subsists
largely upon plantains, bananas, man
goes, bread fruit a oocoannts, though
no aiso depends to no small degree upon
subterranean storehouses of starch or
sugar, such as yams and sweet potatoes.
In temperate climates, on the other
hand, he derives his food more from
seeds than from fruits. Wheat, rye,
maize, barley, oats, rice and millets form
the staple of his diet, while his prin
cipal subterranean, food, the potato, is
starchy, not sngary. Accordingly his in
herited sweot tooth fuels the need for
sugar a need which he has endeavored
from all time to satisfy, especially in
youth, with dried fruits, figs, raisins
and other like devioes. Cornhill Maga-
