Fire on Wood Street.
About six o'clOck last evening a fire was
discovered in the establishment of JrlO. Te - .
Dawes, 153 Wood street, palnter,,and dealer
in druggists' glass ware. The building
was a brick four stories high; and the fire
orginated in the third story, which was
Used as a paint shop, and in which there was
a quantity of paints, oils, varnishes, 'and a
can of benzine. • It is supposed that the lire
was caused by the explosion of the can of
benzine, which had been left near the stove.
A considerable time elapsed after the tire
was discovered , before the alarm was giVen,
and as a consequence the flames had made
considerable progress before the steamers
arrived. Owing to the infienimahle material
in the room where the tiro originated, it
sees some time before the • water,
which was thrown into the building
in a perfect deluge, appeared to have any
effect upon the tire, and more than an beer
elapsed before the flames were subdued.
The tire was confined to the building in
which it it originated, and (lid no further
daniage except to that portion of it above
the third fleor The roof was burnt off and
thdfourth floor binned out, and the greater
portion of the material, paints, oils, (tie,
on the third- floor, were destroyed. The
greatest damage, however, was caused by'
the water. Th trunk and harness factory
of Mr S. Stewart, No. 155, which adjoins
Dawes' establishment, was slightly dam
aged by water, as was also the stock of Mr.
W. D. Rinehart, tobacconist, whose estab
lishment, 151. adjoinset on the other side.
The building in which the tire was is •
owned by IL W. Oliver, and was insured
as follows: 'ln 'the Merchants and Manu
facturers Company, . e 2,00.0; Boatmen's,
$2,000; Cash, $2,000; total, $6,000.
Mr. Dawes' loss is estimated at 52,000,
and is insured for 53,000, in the following
companies: Pittsburgh Insurance C,ompa
llY, $l,OOO, United States of Baltimore,
$1,000; Commonwealth of Philadelphia,
According to Mr. Dawes' statement, the
fire was caused by a kettle of cement, -
which had been left standing 'upon the ,
stove, boiling over and taking tire.

• The Styles.
What a wonderful thing is fashion. A
mere creature of fancy, an airy nothing
created into shape, to suit the imagination,
and dependent upon the fickle tastes of the
world for its life. It is a wonderful thing,
nevertheless, and is studied, courted and
followed, 'as though it were something per
manent. As an evidence of this fact it is
only necessary to refer our readers to the
popular and fashionable establishment of
W. W. Moorehead, No.' 81 Market street,
dealer in trimmings and lace goods, where
all the latest styles of goods in his line
are to be found, as they will find that
the styles, notwithstanding their frequent
changes, are kept up with. This fact, it
appears, is generally , known, however, as
there is always a rush at Moorbead's, be
cause we presume he keeps the latest and
best styles of goods.
