ELEVATORS CLOSED TO WHEAT OS0P Tbe Warmers fa gbm Orest Wheat Growing Bait Startled by a Place of K*w* 1h�l axoana Bankruptcy 'or Many of Them Too Bjlevabsn Will Mat Stan Their Crop*. Ohicaoo, July 21.-A special dispatch from Jamestown, North Dakota, says: It will be a startling pitor of news to the wbaat growers of North Dakota to find out on the eve of harvest that no elevator In the state will store grain this year. Tbe radical change in the handling of the crop baa been kept an seoret as possible. It was determined upon soon after tbe Jaw was paased this year which makes all public elevatote and warehouses pay au annual license of 62.50 par bushels oepsoity. Nine-tenths cf tbe crop of tbe state was heretofore bought by tbe elevator companies upon tba Dulutb and Minneapolis quotations, A farmer could a tore his grain is these elevators for fifteen days for nothing, and keep it In store as long as be desired to pay a small few therefore. UEVUSX TO STORK oeaik. Now tba elevators will refuse this on the ground that they are not public elevators, and the farmer who is mortgaged to the ears will this year be compelled to sell his crop at whatever price the company chooses to allow hln, In most cases this will leave him penniless for the winter. Tbe law was supposed to be a reasonable one, and was in the nature of a tax not so easy lo evade as the old tax law has proved; hut tbe companies, in order to evade it, will reaoit to this sweeping change wbiob will bring misery on most of tbe wheat growers of tbe State, a olass of men having from 50 to 600 acres in grain, which represents all they bave in the world, and wbicfi now promises tbe first actual return for their labor in three years. TJIEF COA'TBOt. TDK Clior. The plan ot farcing piivate buyers out of tbe small stations and agreeing npon a price the principal elevators of the State will have, as in tbe pasf, absolute control of the enormous crop now heading out. This crop will be so large that the Railroad Commissioners have stated that all tbe rallraada combined cannot furnish cars to move it one-tenth as fast as required. If the elevators decline to store it tbs confusion and dismay that will resell will be something unparalleled. Of course the demand fot cars wUlbetmmensly increased. Farmer* having no notice of tbe elevators' action will not have time to build bins or ware houses. They have, as � rule, no graneries sow, and cannot get money to buy lumber for new ones to store their owu grain in. Many oi them bought seed wheat of the elevator syndicate enga>inx�6. by Governor M!il�r this Spring. This wheat was charged (or at (I a bushel and � lieu was taken on the crop, which prevents the farmer from doing aoythiug with it except to tarn it oyer to the company as fast as it is threshed. The plan of the combine will result in an agricultural panic for this section of the State. BASE BALI, SECORD. The Three OraWaliaUaas and Their Stand-v lo* to Data.

Karn an Aemnnt or Wli.t Jou Spend, It Vou Want to Bave Money. Ben Franklin had a wise old head, aays OoUUn Days, wbeu be advised bis readers to take oare of the pennies and tho pounds would take cate of themselves. Tbe boy in whose agak�ta the pennies burn holes will understand the difficulty of taking oare of the pennies, and like ss not declare ii.eno.uot be done. "I don't know," ��y� ltob Booklets, "what becomes of my money. Only yesterday I changed the dollar that (Jnole Tom gave me and I bought only a glass of soda, and now I have only a dime left. Where can jt have gone?" "My, how money does fly!" exclaimed Edith Random. "What will papa say when be discovers that my month's allowance has only lasted a week ? Where did it go? I really can't tell. 1 remember treating the girls to ices yesterday, and buying a ribbon the day before, and two pairs of gloves l�st Saturday, and ho, dear, don't ask me where it haa gone!" Bat that is just the question every boy and girl should ask themselves wheutbey find their money disappearing. "It is a good thing to keep as aooount of your small expenses," John Bigelow, ex-Hioiater to France, and a man of wealth, once said to an acquaintance as he entered an item in his note book. Sia listener smiled at the 'remark, but, being a sensible fellow, hetook.lt to heart. In recently telling the story of his experience, he said up to that tine be had never thought of the amount it annually oost him for cigars and other sundries. Be began to itemize the cost daily. Ho was amaxed at the end ot the year when be footed up the sum of $750. A change was wrought in him, and he determined that he would keep cucli expenses down to ooe-third of the aum in question. "And now," he said, "within teu years I bave profited by Mr. Bigeiow'e advice to the amount of (5,000, which I have banded over to my wile to keep lor hard times. And I hare not become mean either." Now it ia not likely that any boy or girl who reads these lines squandere (750 a year on little expenses, but they may squander $75, or perhaps only 17,50, and lire lesson is obvious. A great many little expenses are Incurred for such UBeleaaaojtswibat the money might �� well be thrown into tbe street, and it is the expenses that an expense book would check. It Is not "mean" to keep an account of little expenses. The Unite* States Government requirra all postmsatcta to collect and sell waste paper and string, sod render an account of the money realized from the sale; army officers are required to account for every hammer, bit of harness, yard of oloth or gilt button, and the Weather Bureau requires its obaervers to report the deposition of every pontage stsmp. So it is in every great mercantile or manufacturing establishment; the little expenses are rigidly looked after, because experience has shown that in the aggregate tbey amount to large sums. Take cars of the pennies by toiing where they go. and you will be surprised to find how the practice will sol as a check on useless expenditure. Keep a guard on the little expenses and you will have no trouble with the big ones. M-r. Armour and the tlootbLck. From me Chicago Tribune, A bootblack walked iato the office of Mr. Armour, lie had none of his outfit with him, but the bootblack was stamped iu bia face, and all over him. Me went to the gate where ft guard stands between his post and the greatest packer in the world. "W'ere's de old man asked the urchin. The guard told ttau boy to get out. 'You tell do niu man dat I waul to see him. Iwanttor.ee him alone. I don't want to boddcr you nor du nlc mfin. But I want to see de t>le man, an' I vraut lo cee him right oft." Mr. Armour at his de.k overbnaid tbe ragged request. "Let fbat inty come in here," he called to tho yonng man at tbe gate. The urchin appmachod Mr. Armour in a business-like, way.

At 3.30 yesterday afternoon the shrill ory of fire taken up and repeated by bun dreds of voices brought (be peop'e of Lock Baven quickly from Vbeix houses and places of business, the clanging of the firs bells and trie hurrying through the streets of firemen as they ran to their respeetive augiue booses added to the ex-eiUment which grew more Intense as dense volumes of black smoke was seeu to roll up from tbe river front. As the ward was passed from mouth to mouth that Kintzfng & Biiokiord's steam saw mill was au Bre there was a hurried movement in that direotlon oo the part of nearly the entire population of tbe city, Tbe firemen responded promptly to the nail, and wen at the scene of the conflagration in a very short time after the general alarm was sounded. There was a stiff breeze blowing from tbe east, ani as tbe lumber yard was at the west side of tbe mill it was evident from the first that the lumber piles would have to go. The Silshy engine was taken to the foot of Vesper street on its arrival at the lire but wax shortly afterwards removed to a place near the Queens Run fire brick workswhere it remained while in service. The hose companies mode attachments with fire plugs wherever they could find them, although the pressure from plugs on Main street was so slight that the streams from that souros was of but little aswount. As the flames enveloped the eaill they communicated with tbe lumber oo the west, aud pile after pile of sawed lumber was ablaze In a very abort period of time. The lumber piles were so near tbe stables In tbe rear of tbe residences of Judge Sfsyer, Frederick Kreamer, Col. W, A. pmpson and others, thai their destruction* seemed inevitable and the efforts of hath firemen and citisons were .oavnijiit to fighting the flames at that point. Nearly if not all the household goods were removed from the residences on the north sida ot Water street from Judge Mayer's west and tbe general opinion seemed to be that the handsome structures would fall a pray to the fire fiend in spite of the heroic efforts made to save tbem flora destruction. After bsurs of hard work, however, the fury of the fire was exhausted among the lumber piles nearest the stables, and only great heaps of glow, ing embers remained and the danger at that point was over. CALllaG rOR BELP. From tbe first outbreak of the fire there was danger of the eonSsgration s> trading southward, and it was seeu that the local fire department would be unable to gain control of the tUmcs until all or at least the greater part of the lumber had been diatroyed. Mayor Mason therefore sent the following meaaage to W'l'ieoiaport: Lock HA.v�!i,Iune?t. MavoB XxLUX, wlllInn�pori.

There waa a prompt response that help would be sent immediately. Ia the meantime the fire continued to eat its way rapidly towards the western end ot the lumber yard, and the two million feet of sawod lumber piled on the grounds was rapidly disappearing. Streams of water poured on the iUmea had ao parocpttblo effect in oheoking the on waid course of the destroying elecciont, and the brave firemen, with blistered faces and hands, were continually forced to fall back and tiegiu over vbe battle they were waging so- manfully, THE FLAWS CORTBOLLEII. It was not until neat aeven o'clock that there see mud to bs aDy probability of checking the fire before it had reached the extreme weat end of the yard. At that hour the wind shifted toward* ihe west, and the flames bad commuuicatoct with the pile of hoards along the railroad near-Sit Water street. The headway of tho fire was also being checked along the rivet ana' railroad. Just at that moment the Willinmapurt fliemen camo dashing up Water xtreet with their hose cart closely followed by s steamer which w,v� stationed ne�� the U issduasce. Piled in the yard wera about 2,000,000 feet of sawed lumber besides pickets, wood and several small lots of lumber which bad been sawed for parties other than the owners of the milt. Only about 200,000 feet of the lumber was saved Tbe loss ou lumber is estimated at about 20,000 and ou mill 413,000 a total of 183,-000. On the mill then was an Insurance of 110,000 and on the lumber 18,000. The insurance was plaeed aa follows; On mill with C. M. O'Couttot's agency, 41,000, In the Royal of England; 11,000 with Springfield, of Mass. With C. R. Gear-hart's agency; 61,000 in tha Farmers of York.

Toe Williams yv\ Somflti left for their homes at 11:42 and reached Wllliamaport at I2.au. During their stay they did effective work and assisted in keeping the fire inside the mill grounds where tbs big heaps of ooala were burning ready to start a new conflagration should the wind become stronger. Fortunately the evening was calm, and danger from that source was averted. At 9 o'clock supper was served at the Fallon Bouse for the Williamsport firemen, and while the hungry fire laddies were fed the streams of water-continuing to Sow without icttftrapvion meanwhile. The' people of Lock Baven are grateful for the assistance Williamsport rosdered and her firemen are aver.ready to respond as in the past to calls for help from our sister city if the hour of need comas. xotks. Tbe fire did its work effectively and the mill yard is clear of debris this morning. It is not yet known whether tha burned eaill will be rebuilt ot not, Thaatte ia � splendid one for an industry. The ladies living in the vicinity of tbe fire served hot oofiee and luceh to tbe firemen, which tbey greatly appreciated. Messrs. KioUiag & Biokford have considerable stock to saw yet, and about forty men are thrown out of employment by the fire. P. M. Christie's Ico house was partly destroyed and waa only saved from complete destruction by tbe hardest kind of work. A nick'-e plated brass piece was lost from tbe harness uf Hope Hose Company's horse which the finder will please leave at the Engine Uoueo.
