—Dr. Dio Lewis, in his magazine, gives a

has cured three-fourths of all the cases he has
treated. The stammerer is made to mark the
time in his speech, just as it is ordinarily dons
in singing. At first he is to beat ou every syl
lable. He should l»egin by reading one of the
Psalms, striking the linger on the knee at
every word. "Time can be marked," says the
doctor, "by striking the linger on the kuee, by
bitting the thumb against the fore-finger, or
by moving the large toe in the boot." The
writer believes the worst case of stuttering can
be cured, if the victim will read an hour every
day, with thorough practice of this remedy,

—The ojarket reviewer of a New \ ork paper
says that the grain and provision speculation
in Chicago coulinues us lively as ever. The
price of wheat is sustained solely by tpanjpula
tion, and cannot keep its present level much
longer, for there is an ample supply of wheat
everywhere. But the bull speculation in corn,
oats and rye is quite justifiable. The scarcity
laid bad quality of this yeur's corn crop must
put this cereal to 70 or 75 cents per bushel by
next spring. Oats will naturally follow the ad
vance in corn, as being a substitute for corn,
while the crop of rye has becu short every
where, and Germany arid Russialiye almost ex
clusively on rye bread. As far back as two
loontl; ago a member of the well-known ship
ping firm of Saa^sr Brothers said that rye was
the only American grain fo»' wuich tjipre was a
genuine demand in Europe and which could be
exported with profit. The speculation in that
staple has not begun yet, but when it does be
gin we shall see prices jump very lively. As a
rule, »« s£)ls from 15 to 20 cents a bushel high
er than corn. To day they arc selling at about
the same price, so that there is plenty ot room
for a legitimate advance." Ttfe same \jrritcr
also s»y« that "the overproduction of cotton
goods in England as well as in this country is
such that no revival in th&f irHije i" expected
before next winter by the best-informed manu
facturers. And even then, according to these
authorities, a revival can take place only if the

A Convent Horror.
ST. LOUIS, January C.—The 1 timing
of the Immaculate Conception Consent
at Belleville, 111., at 11 o'clock last
night was the greatest holocaust hap
pening in this vicinity since the South
ern Hotel fire. Twenty-six lives were
lost. The convent is located iu the
heart of Belleville. The alarm of fire
was first given by the watchman at
Harrison's machine works, a block
away, and Mr. James Stout, of the
City Foundry, was about the first man
attracted to the scetie. When he
reached the place the windows of the
third floor present a spectacle that was
enough to send a horrible shudder
through the stoutest heart. There in
their night clothes, suddenly aroused
from their slumbers, stood in despair a
large number of the terrified inmates of
that floor. There was no chance of
rescue, and the only alternative was
the dreadful, leap. Soon afterwards
volumes of smoke were seen to spread
throughout the building, followed by
loud explosions, and then a few took
the desperate chances of burling them
selves through the windows.
Mary Campbell was the first to try
the almost hopeless ordeal, and as she
fell to the pavement her frail body was
hurriedly removed to the Harrison ma
chine works, where after a few gasps
she expired. Deisy Ebermann manag

the tjjird floor and find a perilous posi

long time, shreiking for sucoor-from the
heat within and cold without -At last
the combined flame and smoke burst
from the windows around her, and she
was hurlad to the ground, but her fall
was broken by two men who stood
with outstretched arms to receive her.
Che was not seriously hurt.
Mr. Kmil J. Kohi was one of the
first to render practical aid to the im
periled inmates. Knowing where to
procure a long ladder from the of
the premises, he, with the aid of others,
soon had it in position at the front of
the building, doing gallant service. It
reached to the second fioor, and t«yo
stout men ascended it with another
smaller ladder, by which they reached
third floor and provided an escape for a
number of the sisters and boarder. Sis
ter Moderate about this time was found
lying upon the ground on the south
side of the buildiug, quite dead It is
thought that she fell froip a window on
that side of the building
About this tiiye, on the south side
of the main building, two ladies not
known to the rescuers were saved from
the top of the veranda even with the
second floors. They doubtless leaped
from the story above, and in their fall
on the roof were stunned, and when
discovered were nearly froze. A short
ladder was found, but it could not
reach tJu-Ri. At this juncture Mr. 0.
W. Mermer and Mr. John
took the ladder, and resting it on the
projection of the porch, managed to se
cure it and the ladies were rescued
At this time the Humes were rapidly
spreading, nßd ic spite of the efforts of
the gallant firemen to stay their pro
gress, the inside of the building was
surrendered to the fire, and nothiug
was left for them to do except to eon
fine the flames and save, if* possible,
the walla. The wall on the left side,
however, was doomed, and it soon fell,
carrying down with it blazing timbers
and fragments, and burying with its
dobris the bodies of many.
It was not known until this morning
tbat 26 persons were missing. These
Were all buried in the ruins. Up to

Are "we In a Comet
The N. Y. Star thinks the earth is
passing through the comet of 1882. It
says:—The comet of 1882, an unusu
ally large and brilliant one, has not
been seen since its perihelion passage.
It came from the north, and its solar
contact was in a direction which gave
the earth the advantage of overtakiug
it, and we overtook it between the be
ginning of September and the last of
November. On November 30 its
measured course would bring it« nu
cleus closer to the earth than th-: <f
any recorded comet since 1730, a«i 1 s »
close that we might easily go through
it on teu or twelve million miles
of chord of arc. The eattb could take
no hurt of cometic'matur: ou the con
trary we have some reasons for believ
ing that the effect of a cometic bath is
salutary; it is difficult to understand
how anything noxious could be encoun
tered comiug out of the coldness(s4"
degrees) of space. In 1811 and 18f>S
the earth passed through comets, and
vintages of those years are held most
valuable, and are known as "comet
wines." The comet of 1882, through
which we are passing, and of which
we have naturally lost sight, will be
observed next year heading off into
space proceded by its trail of light; for
the trail of a comet is always turned
away from the sun.
