Flurry of Excitement Caused by
Blnze In Deserted Building.
An ulnrm turned lu from Hox 10,
Kiiutli Multi'strect nnd lOlghth avenue,
ut G o'clock hint evening, caused quit"
i Hurry ot excitement In Hint section
of the city.
The alarm en mo from tho section ad
jacent to the business portion of the
city, and llicrc wus n wild rush of anx
ious persons to that locality. The
MltcPtH were well peopled with work
men going from their duties, and Main
Mreot, particularly, was the scene of
much lir.' and aetlvlly. The Columbia
mid Mitchell companies, spurred by
linxlely to reach the scene iirsl, added
to the excltcmeiU. and the ubiquitous
small boy, who (lellRhtH In these stir

lire, however, was of little consequence.

Other Places That Bear the Name of
the Pioneer City.
.Some hitherto unknown InterestliiR
facts have been brought forward since
the city lias commenced preparations
for the centennial celebration.
AmoiiR those Is the knowledge that
there are probably a dozen places In
t lie country beariiiR the name of Car-,
bondale, and the fact that most of
these places have been named after
our own Cui'bomlnlc Rives an added
Interest to this discovery. Natives of
the Pioneer City whose propensities
for travel have taken them to widely
separated sections of the L'nlted States
in a spirit of native pride have chris
tened these different localities in honor
of their birthplace and the result has
been that tit--- name has been fostered
until It found a place on the postal
KUide as a postofllce town. The post
olllees benrhiR the name of Carbondale
are as follows: Carbondale, Garfield

COM3BBNOE.NOW TO LAY ASIDE
THIS SMALL SUM.
Cyclists All Over tho Country Are
Forming Touring Clubs and Sav
ing Their Money for the Purpose
of Wheeling to tho Pnn-Amorlcan
Clubs or parties fornied for the pur
pose) of touting awheel to Buffalo this
summer are now being organized lu n
number of localities. Some ot these
parties are of the "personally conduct
ed" order a certain stipulated amount
being paid, In Installments or other
wise, to tho organizer or conductor of
the party who assumes all responsibil
ity and 'attends to nil the business de
tails. In other cases, clubs are formed
on the co-operative plan, ofllcers arc
appointed or elected and weekly or
monthly payment made to the club
Several Important points must be
considered in planning for a success
ful club cycling tour. in the first
place, there should be, as a rule, a
large enough party to create enthus
iasm from mere numbers, and the feel
ing that the trip is an event. Twenty
oi thirty makes a satisfactory number
for a club tour. A party of this slao
commands attention and respect from
landlords, and yet Is not so numerous
that tho members can not be comfort
ably housed and fed. The manager of
a party can not well look after more
than 20 or 30 cyclists, unless tho trip
Is a short one. and where large hotels
can be reached each day.
On tho selection of tho route, de
pends much of the success of the tour.
The best route Is not always the short
est. Due consideration must be given
to the grades, condition of the roads
nnd side paths, scenic, historic and
other points of Interest, and last but
not least, to the hotel accommodations
on route. In addition to the Informa
tion regarding the best routes and con
ditions of 'the road to be obtained from
tho road books and maps published by
the different divisions of the League of
American AVheelmen, much valuable
information relating to points of in
terest, historical, etc., may be obtained
from the folders and other advertising
matter Issued by the principal rail
roads. If, however. In plunnlng a tour,
information is desired that is not to be
obtained from other sources at your
command, you are advised to apply to
the Publicity Department of the Pan
ONE DAY'S HUN.
Set each day's run at 50 miles and
under under Is better. In order to
reauh a certain point, a few long runs
may bo necessary, but do not think the
average wheelman can ride 75 miles a.
day for a week, and spend Ids even
ings "doing the sights." If each day's
run is stated in the Itinerary, be sure
it is never underestimated. If it
should be, he is apt to find fault in
regard to every extra inch he has to
wheel. This amusing trait is peculiar
to cyclists. They claim to like to ride
unci they really do but compel them
to ride a mile more than they expect to,
and they immediately become very
much abused Individuals.
After deciding on the sb;o of the
party, the route to be followed, and
the number of miles to be ridden each
day, select the various stopping places,
and enter into correspondence imme
diately, with the proprietors of the
hotels In the towns selected for stop
ping places. It Is not always the best
policy to endeavor to secure reduced
rates from landlords, but rather to
insist on only two in a room with
sopurato beds, If possible, and extra
good meals. Landlords arc often
ready to give reduced intes, but If they
do, they are apt to try and get oven
in some other way which may make
matters unpleasant. On the contrary.
If they arc asked for no reduction, but
for a little extra bill of fare, tliey be
come eager to treat you well, and
everything will run smoothly.
On the wheel, there should be taken
as little baggage as possible if a com
fortable lour is the thing desired. The
bulkier baggage of the party should
be sent ahead each day by express. In
I'ddltion, each mem her of tho party
should bo advised to forward to the
hotel decided upon in Buffalo, a sup
ply of ordinary clothing before leaving
home. This done, lie will find his v.lslt
to the Pan-American exposition made
much more comfortable and enjoyable.
Nothing rests one more after a loug

EXPENSES PIOH DAY.
lu organizing a party for a tour to
Buffalo, It will be safe to estimate the
expenses per day its follows: $'i per day
for hotel expense (about $J.r,0 will bo
the average hotel bill, the other half
dollar will meet Incidental expenses
that are continually cropping out, and
help to pay" for postage and printing),
To this add the amount required for
rullroud and steamboat fares, and
other known expenses, and then add
ton dollars for unforeseen contingen
cies. Of course less would do, and a
great deal more can be snout.
Making advance arratigenieuts not
only entails considerable care ami la
bor upon the promoter or manager of
tho tour, but renders It necessary for
tho purty to make each days journey
illt schedule time. Circumstances,
however, sometimes arise which make
delays advisable or render progress
Inconvenient, as for instance, a seveie
rain storm which may make the roads
Impassable, In this case It will be
necessary lu proceed by train or boat
to tho place appointed for the midday
Uieal and by the sumo method to the
stopping place for Iho night, Should
such deviations from the. piogianime
occur tho manager will have leason

other man will be called Jones, for
tho real names of both men are not
known in the memory of any one who
witnessed the Incident.
Jones was charged with and Indictee"
for having sold liquor to the Indians
Mr Jones was a natlx-e of New York,
a graduate of Union college and was
educated for a lawyer. Ho possesset
a. highly cultured mind a good Latin
1st and thoroughly scholarly In a I
sorts of books. Not succeeding in his
profession in his native state, mora
fiom lack of application than other
wise, ho loft that country and plungeo
into the great west and located nobody
knew where, but he drifted into the
lower strata of society, and to obtain
the necessities of life be resorted to
"bootlegging" among tlio red men of
the Indian territory border. His ar
rest and imprisonment followed. The
two men were urraigned before Judge
Krekel and the indictments read. The.x
both plead guilty and throw themselves
upon the mercy of the court. The court
questioned both prisoners at length
and drew from each their history. He
recounted the wrongs they hail been
guilty of against society. He did this
in a kindly tcuo and manner, suggest
ing hi a mild form that both might
have been useful members of soni"
community laid they sought honorable
menus and methods to tecuro a liveli
hood. Tile court seemed puzzled how lo
assess punishment that would meet
Hie ends of justice, protect tlio gov
ernment, its lands, its wards and so
ciety. Finally, sitting upright In hi
chair, looking over Ills glasses, as both
men stood before him, in a voice lltlli-loudt-r
and more positive than usual,
he said "Mr. Hrown. it is Iho sen
tence of the court that you bo eon
lined in the Cole county jail until you
are educated lo read ami write." The
judge then turned his cyfs upon the
pilruncr at tho bar end, possibly in a
louder voice, said: "Mr. Jones, It is
tho sentence of the court that you be
conilned lu the Cole county Jail null'
you have taught Mr. Hrown to tea
and write, anil enjoin the keeper oi
the Jail to afford you every facility
possible with the safe-keeping of bis
prisoners." The lawyers and specta
tors In court looked with astonishment
at each other as the sentence "was con
cluded, and the marshal led the priso
ners out of tho court room.
It was the second term of the coiti'l
after this Incident, when tlio marshal
conducted Hrown and Jones Into
court, and It was announced by ih
court that Hrown had complete 1 bis
education ready to graduate able tr
read and write. Judge Krekel looked
over his glasses and asked that the
prisoner give him all evidence of his
being able lo read. Hrown stood tu
ami read u few paragraphs from ,i
newspaper to tho salisfani'i.i of tie
court, when he .i.tid; 'Mr. Clerk, v, I"
you let him sit at a table nnd. write nn
a letter!" Paper, pen, ink ami a sen''
were furnished Hrowi, who v.-ip te
work to writ" a lettur lit tho court.
Fur souio time the poor fclliw Ming
gied with the tusk, and in tin mean
time Jones was very nervous fearing h'
would be compelled to go back to Jail
ami "take up school" ag.iia. Flrallv
the clerk Fakir "Ma it please join
honor, Iho prif-oii-T can write, hut can
not form hontonces to nutko It intelligi

taking his eyes from the court docket
ho was looking at. "you will dlctato a
letter for him and -eo what headway

tated a letter that the prisoner writ In
