Lake ran back, and, telling his father to take Mrs. Lake and Maprgie Lake to the roof, burst into his sister's room. The latter was standing in the middle of the room in her night garments, almost su.Tocared by the smoke. She would not come" when her brother called, and, raising her in his arms, he carried her to the roof. The buildings on either side are much lower than the house in which they lived, and they were compelled to remain on the roof of the burning building. The fire- men had Ttot arrived when they reached the housetop, but a number of persons had collccfed in the street from the neigh- borhood, and the people on tne roof shouted to them for heln. It was then that. Pol- cemen Poh'er and Fell dashed the crowd, and, tear- ing off their belts, hats coats, rushed into the adjoining house, find, with ladder in hand, climbed to the back building. The ladder was found too short, however. Pohler, nothing daunted, mounted the top round, and grasping the rainspout, swung himself clear of the ladder. It w.-is a daring act. If his hold gave way or the spout broke loose he would have fallen to the hard pavement below. A great shout went up from the street below, and a second later the brave bluecoat disappeared in a cloud of smoke, reappearing a. moment later on the burning roof. His companion below braced himself ag.-in-t th" wa'I and re- ceived in his arms ihe and men as they were handed down from above. Pohler then jumped down himself and the entire p.v.-iy r died tei ra firnia in safety. Anld highly complimented his two policemen. A Prominent Illinois Man His to tho of SSJJ.f.OOO. HABVAKD, Ills., Oct. Arm- strong, for forty years one of Harvard's most prominent citizens, proved to be a defaulter, having robbed his clients of He has always borne an unblem- ished reputation but it now transpires that for years he has been practicing systematic frauds. Armstrong, wlio is now 77 years old and very fe'-bl'.1, has car ried on a general collection and loaning besides being a justice of the peace, lie loaned large sums of money, making thirrcvn loans for Joseph hill, r.-mgiu-i from J.JOO to 81.000. He did ;v like for other lesidt-iits. This he carried on for about ten years, fc'oothill became suspicious that all was not righr. He accordingly wrote a letter to of the thirteen men whom he supposed were his credhors. The thir- teenth man, George Oakley of Marengo, Ills., Soothill that he did not owe him anything. This alarmed Soothill and he procured a map and located the land which he sup- posed he had in mortgages and visited two places in Seneca, where he held papers. Both names were bogus, and a glance at the couuty clerk's records revealed the fast that six names in McHenry county against whom he held paper werp forged. Further investigation disclosed a sim- ilar state of affairs in Boone county, six names being given in that county. Soot- hiii then informed Armstrong of the re- suit oi' his investigation and Armstrong admitted his crime. This brought for- ward other creditors, and from what can be learned it is apparent that has been procured in this way. Armstrong was prompt each year in paying the inter- est on tas sums loaned.

Florence Tyler of Butler, Ills., walked into Eugene F. Mease's house Monday evening and shot him down. Mr. Mease was married last Saturday to Tessie Raymond and the young couple had just started housekeep- ing. The cause of the shooting, according to the statements made by Miss Tyler, was revenge. Mease had formerly been en- gaged to her and they were to have been married last jSfew Year's day. Mease put off the wedding, however, and finally mar- ried Miss Raymond. Miss Tyler went to their house Monday evening. Mrs. Mease answered the belL She called her husband and all entered the front room. "I want my ring and my photograph, Eugene said Miss Tyler. Mease left the room, and returning in a few minutes handed Miss Tyler a pack- age. She started to leave the room, but turned when she reached the door, and running up to Mease drew a revolver from the folds of her dress. She placed the muzzle of the weapon di- rectly over Mease's heart. He turned slightly to the left just as the weapon was discharged, and the bullet entered his left shoulder in the arm pit and lodged under his left shoulder blade. Mease fell to the floor and hU bride fainted. Miss Tyler started to walk out, but was met at the door by an officer who had heard the shot and Mrs. Mease's scream. Miss Tyl-r had the revolver in her hand when arrested. Mease will probably re- cover. WILL OF ANDREW PERR1N. of How His Estate of a Quarter Million is to be Apportioned. ROCHESTER, Oct.

Special dispatches from Edinburgh agree in stating that Mr. Gladstone was in tine form ye.-terday. and that his speech in the Corn Exchange was a brilliant effort, showing no trace of a decline in the virility which seems to defy the advance of age in the case of this truly Grand Old Man. A feature of the speech which seems to have attracted the notice of all the was the facility with which the orator clothed the expres- sion of truths in novel telling forms. His indictment of the government for its many errors of omission and commission was couched in solemn terms an-1 pro- duced a deep From urave tone of censure Mr. Gladstone turne.J easily to the Ik-liter touches of ridk- :.j and sarcasm, and .-main to those serious arguments iu which his perspicacitv and logic delight the lisvner.

The meeting that th.3 governor was to adlr.-ss was set for 8 o'clock tiie hall was iilled to its utmost capacity long before that tii-i Hill did not reach tha hall until about 9 o'clock, when tha pent-up enthusi- asm of the crowd broke out in a round oi applause that shook the firmam-'iit. Mr. acted as chairman and introduced Governor Hill as one of the most dis- tinguished men in the country and tbe future president. In his address, Governor Kill prefaced his remarks by dwelling on the elections bill, the a'lnii.-sion of the new states, and called the McKinley bill an infamous one, the sum of all villainies. He talked principally on tariff, reiterating the tariff as a tax. He sjid the primary object oi a tarriff was to raise the necessary ex- penses of the eminent, and no more should be raised. 'Ihe place for the sur- plus was in rue pockets of the masses. Republicans had reduced the surplus by unprecedented extravagant appropria- tions, redeeming their pledges and en dangering a deficiency. He denied that the Democrats were ever committe-l to free trade, and a'-serted that it favcr; d more than any other party ever organizea protection to American labor. The tariff must be high enough to equal- ize wages between countries. He defen-Jed the Mills bili as furnishing adequate pro- tection to every laborer and as sul-serving the best interests of the country. Barrina tl-.e free list, every article on which tariff was reduced in the bill re- tained a suiticient duty to equalize wages. Demoera s in-ist that little or no t.-irifi should be placed on necessities or free raw material for manufacture. He said it was hoped to popularize the McKinley bill by benefitting all a little, but the government should have little to do with business in- terests. McKinley is the strongest protectionist ever in congress. No monopol.st ever ap- plied to him in vain. No wages had been raised since the bill had passed and the prices had risen. He acknowledged that j merchants were taking advantage of the i bill but charged that the bill furnished the opportunity. He denounced the bill j as framed in the interest of monopoly and J to injure all other classes. He denied that the tariff kept up wages in this country and accounting for the higher wages here by the greater ability and intelligence of the people and through labor organiz- ations He denounced the unseating oi I Democrat representatives from the South, the of Wyoming an 1 Idaho and I the rejection of New Mexico, alleging that; the latter was equal to both the former i and charging it all to partisanship.

Ife of the elections bill in the "m.-.s" bitter' language, s.-iyiug it surpa.-sed the tariff and all other issues as the great of the hour, appealing to the people to re- sent it. He denied that there are dishon- est elections in the South, and said the colored people were happy and contented, and those not voting did not want to.
