A DISASTROUS BLAZE.
Two Small Youngsters Playing with
Matches Inflict Seiious Loss.
A yaiso barn on U10 prmlse of
Kivln H. S'tone, the milk denier of
21 Hlikctt street, was totally destroyed
liv fire j'cstcirtay mornlttR at about
li.OO o'clock, togcthci with Its content'-.
Mr. Stone was nut on Ills milk loutc
ind nt the time of the outbreak wis
mi Uelmont avenue, delivering nilllc
tn n etiatomot. Ills wife was in the
Kitchen oC liur litimo, back of which
tlio bain stood, doing her housekeep
ing duties, a four-year-old hon nnmsd
and ti neighbor's boy named
feu in son were In the barn playing.
Mr. Stone had just had an addition
built to his bain and tlio finishing
touches on It weie completed on ITon
d.iy noon. Among the materials left
by the earpentei.s was a htK of nails.
AVhile the youngsteirt weie exploilmr
In the now pait of the bain thoycame
iuioss the box of mils and In it was
a mntch. As they had been fm bidden
to play with match? their 'nst im
pulse was, of coiuse, to elimb up in
the hayloft with it, out of hlgbt, and
theie to enjoy their new plaj thing.
After it had binned almost to the
llngpitlps of one of the in chins It was
tin own down in haste, light in the
Tlie two Utile I oy.s, nfi.-iul '.o led
of il e file in the ioft, scampered down
and picking up a chubby handful of
stones apiece, attempted to put out
the flames themselves. Mis. Stone,
at about this time, glanced out of
the kitchen window to see where the
boys were. She saw the smoke, but
as there was a big pile of brush be
hind the barn, she at (list supposed
It was that which was limning, hu
was impelled to take a second look,
linuei-r, and then saw what the
lioublo was. She hastened to send In
an alaite, but did not know how o do
so, amPno went to A. D. Wylllo's
gioeety stoio on Belmont sheet and
telephoned to the Mitchell Hose com
pany. Then Mr. Wyllle rang in an
alarm. The last note of the alarm
had not sounded before the Mitchell's
drove In. But valuable time had been
lost, and the bain was beyond sav
ing. The house was thieatened, as
well as other buildings, and another
a hum was tinned in five minutes
latei, biinglng the Columbia Hose
(ompany. Their united effoits kept
I he blaze fiom spieading fuither, but
Hie li.irn could not be saved and it
l.in nod to the giound, all except one
little comer. Stoied in the barn was
a quantity of hay, ice cieam tubs and
fixtuies, milk cans, and a tanlage.
The hitter was idled out. but the lest
of the contents weie eleHtioyed.
The total damages was estimated at
about SSno or $900. Mr. Stone did not
have a cent of Insuianee or. anv of
this, and what makes the loss hauler
to beat is the fact that the now ad-
'lllon, finished Monday, had never
been used, and was, huidenlallv, the
i ftiise of the dpstiuetion ol the whole
kiiutuie, thiough the woiknAn hav
ing left the fatal match handv to

THB MAN AS PORTRAYED IN
Outline Study of the Personality of
tlio Present and Noxt President of
the United States A Narrative of
Developing Powers and Steady
From the Philadelphia Prcsi.
The man whoso re-electlou has just
been decreed Is too well known to the
reading pifbllc to demand any cut-and-drlcd
biography at this Into day.
The meic dotes of hh llfo nnd the
bare facts have lost their Inteiest. It
Is the anecdotal side, tho mote Inti
mate, side revealed by tho stories of
those who have known him long and
well and have treasured up their rem
iniscences of htm that is Interesting.
To speak at length of his ancestry
would be to lepcut facts that aie nl
tcady well known. That he Is descend
ed fiom sturdy Scotch-Irish ancestois,
that he was the seventh child of Will
lam McKinley, a pioneer In the It on
puddling business In Ohio those facta
have been threshed over again and
Though the town ot Canton Is most
Intimately associated with tho name ot
McKinley, It was not his birthplace.
He was born In Nlles.
Tho old Inhabitants of that quaint
little village claim to remember him,
but their memories arc vague, for ho
was only a boy when the family moved
to Poland, Mahoning county, O. Ills
people wore not rich then, neither were
AT POLAND ACADEMY.
Young William was sent to tho vil
lage school In Niles, but his father felt
that bettor educational advantages for
the eight children could be secured
elsewheie. Accoidingly hu moved to
Poland and the future president was
sent to what was known as the "acad
emy" In that town.
He stood well among his school-fellows
in all Jils studies, but his woik in
tho Debating society .seemed to give an
eaily hint of the eloquent oratoilctl
powers which latei enabled him to
swaj' multitudes with even more case
than at that time he swajed the school
fellows who gatheied to hear the de
bates. At the eaily age ot sixteen he left
the Poland academy for the Allegheny
college in Meadville, Pa. Heie, how
ever, a sudden illness forced him to
give up his studies and lo icturn home.
On the top of this misfortune came
what practically amounted to the busi
ness failure of his father. Everything
was not lost, to be sure, but the tamlly
was so reduced in circumstances that
It was Impracticable to send William
back to college.
TKACHUR AND VOLUNTEER.
Up was still little more than a boy,
but anxious to do all ir, his power to
aid In the suppoit of his family, he
took a position as district school teach
er, with the munificent salary of $25 a
And then came the war, and the
young school teacher, burning with the
desire to aid in tho great cause of llb
eity, was one of the fust to enlist in
TiObeit P. Poiter, In Ws "Life of Wil
liam McKinley," gives this description
of the young man's enlistment:
"Poland had btiong enlisting pro
pensities. It was the banner town
ship. The boys went to the front just
as soon as the National government
would take them. Poland's pride today
Is that she never stood the diaft. Her
quota was always lull and overflowing".
Said an enthusiastic Polander to the
vv rltei :
" 'Ot this she is tightly ptoud. When
the war cloud had burst over our heads
Poland came to the front with mora
than her shaio of ti ensured sons as
"'And the preliminaries weie, as a
rule, conducted at the Sparrow" House.
One day In .Tune, 1S61, a crowd had
gatheied in this old tavern. An Im
passioned speaker pointed lo the Stars
nnd Stilpes which hung on the wall
and exclaimed with much expression:
"'Our countr.v 's Hag has been shot
at. It has been tialled in the dust by
those vv ho should defend it, dishonored
by those who should have cherished
and loved it and for what? That this
fieo government may keep a race In
the bondage of slavery. Who will bo
the llrst to defend It?'
"A deadly silence icigued In that
hotel parlor. . Many beating hearts:
theie were in the loom. Many young
patriots stood theie who longed to
serve their country and yet) hail not
tho couiage to make the flist move.
"Piehently a space was cleared In
fiont of th eloquent speaker. One by
one some of the choicest ot the young
men ot Poland stepped forwatd. Among
them a slight gray-eyed boyish flguie
might have been observed.
"Too much hnpiossel with the soil
ousness of the situation to put hlm&olf
In evidence lie stepped up with the test.
He was only a boyish private then."
Pl'T ON TUB STAFF.
Tho company that was formed then
was carefully drilled in the few days
that tluy had befoio their depaituro
for camp. On tho dav that they left
Poland half of the to,vn followed them
almost to Youngstown In their eager
ness to keep the hiave boys In sight ns
long as possible.
At Youngstown tha train was boaid
ed ai d tha journey for Camp Chase at
Column! i begun. Hero Company K.
of the Twenty-thlid Ohio regiment,
pitched Its tents and among thoso who
lay umUr that scant shelter was Wil
liam McKinley, just stnitlng on. tho
caieer that has biousht him such hon
or and such gratitude fiom a whole na
tion. McXIuley's executive ability hi ought
him Into notice almost Immediately,
Uu was made commlKsaiy Hergeant and
for two ji'413 was on the staff of Presi
dent Wnyoi, who was (hen In command
of the ictjlment.
On what Piesldent Huyes had called
tlui bloodiest cluy of the whole wni
the 17th of September, ISti.', in tho
Ilattle of Antletum SeiBcunt MoKln
liiy's conduct was such that his com
mander In lioi son Kiomuiciided his
1'lider thu hottest lite, with mpii
lying dead und dying all about htm,
with men suffering blttetly from tho
wunl of a bite to eat, and a drop to
dilnk, Scngeant McKinley, with tho
stair that ho had oigunUod so well,
as evprywhete on tho field, distribut
ing tho food and the coffee that the
fighting men so much needed, cheering
them on with his biavo words and
never for an Instant seeming to earn
for tho shot and the shell that were'
flying so fast about him.
Malor Hayes noticed, the young man
with admiring oye. While tacnvetlng
from his wounds, ho called upon (lov
crnor Todd, of Ohio, nnd totd him ot
the Incident. The governor Immedi
ately ordered the promotion of 8er
atsnnt MeKlnley, nnd ordered further
that the promotion should be placed
upon tho roster of the company.
Stop by step after that the young
man won his way up until three
months before ho was mustctcd out tie

and meritorious service at tho battle

At the battle of Opequan, MoKinley,
then a captain, won tho regard nnd
respect of alt those who saw htm. One
of the men present hiis written the fol
"The Twenty-third Ohio took a con
spicuous part in this battle and the
brigade and division to which McKin

charge across a morass. General Hayes

PROUD OF WAR TITLE.
President McKinley is justly proud
of his war title. Shortly after his
election to the presidency, an old Ohio
farmer, who ha? known him for yeais,
called to pay I1I3 respects."
"I don't know just whnt to call you

be just Major McKinley, then you
were Lawyer McKinley, then you wore
Congressman McKinley, then you were
Governor McKinley and now you are

Major McKinley htudlefl fm a year

He saw then that Poland was too

which to settle It was very laigely his
deshe to be near his sister Annie that

Canton not only gave to Mr. McKin

ADVICE OF HAVP.S.
Ills success in the halls of congiess
has by sonic bern attilbutcd to the ad
vice given him by Piesldent Haves
when he was first elected a ropiesen
tative. "To achieve success and fame," said
President Hujes, "you must pursue a
special line. You. must not make a
speech on every motion offered or every
bill Intioduced. You must cortllne jour
self to one thing in particular. Bo
come a specialist. Take up some
binnch of legislation and make It your
study. Why not choose the tariff?"
Mr. McKinley did choose the taiiff
and though when the McKinley bill
became a law In 1S90, it was1 attacked
bitterly by those who opposed il and
those who did not undcistand it, its
author never for one moment doubted
the wisdom of his measuie und his
counsel was always 'My filends, be
Arm. This is only a cross cut rent. The
tide of tiuth flows surely on beneath."
While he was pieparing the bill for
Its submission to congiess, the gieat
patience of the man and his desire to
hear aiguments on both sides of eveiy
question, was cleat ly shown agaiu and
again. One evening a wealthy manu
facturer, who was a Democi.it, called
upon McKinley in his loom and said
"Mr. McKinley, 1 havp been my
member, who Is a Democrat, to try to
get him to help me In obtaining a hcai
ing befoio your committee. I have been
to my senator, who is also a Democrat,
and I have been to eveiy Influential
man I know in Washington, but not
one of them has been ot any assist
ance to me. Now f have come to ou
I have no claim on you whatever, but
I want to ask the piivilege of aiguins
my case bofoie sou."
All night long the.' two men sat and
talked. Every atgiimemt that the
Democial could bring to bear was
used against one or the piovislons of
the taiiff measure. Hooks weie taktu
down and studied, piece-dents were in
vestigated and the tariff schedules
weie thoioughly looked over, and
when at last the manufacturer aiose
to go Mi. McKinley said to him:
"Your claim is just, I thank you for
bringing It to inc. AVe should havu
eried If we had left the schedule as It
Is. I will see that It Is changed."
POPULAR AT THE CAPITOL.
Among the . niplos-s in the Capitol
thtie was no man In the halls of con
