Salaries in cue different depaitmeu'.s under the municipal administration iu Paris range frstu $2o0 to MOO a year, and the applications an* almost a thousand fur oue. Thero were ;i,103 applications for throo yearly vacancies as messengers, and for seven places in the municipal pawn braking offices there were 2,1'14 candidates. This from the official returns. Tuk post oftioe department of the Government will cost .?71,S.!iO,932 for the current y-drir. That is five aud a euarler miliums more than the cost of the past yea: aud the largest sum by far thit* department has ever cost io a single year. The salaries of the 50,000 postmasters alone call for *i*i,000,000: railroad service contributes the largest item of all, �21,-100,275: clerk hire is estimated at $7,200,-000 which is a million more than it cost last year. While the aggregate sum id far larger -ban ever before, it is wholly due to the growth of the country and the rapid expansion of trade. PERSONAL PENCILINOS.

The west wall of the build log, reaching eigbt stories in beighi, %ven down with a terrific crash into the narrow alley, John Duffy, a pipemau, iu eugine com pany No. 7, came down with the debrif and landed fairly on his head in a jagged pile of mortar and brick, lio was fear fully mangled and iatally injured. Duffy'* comrades on the roof barely escaped witt their lives. They beard the wall creaking and ran to the center of tho roof just at tbe great mass went down. They aubse quently escaped to tho street by means 01 a fire escape. Tho tire started m the basement of Lith-grow's saloon, which occupies tho west hall of the building, and smouldered among piles of straw and liquors for nearly an hour before it wa� discovered. Ky that time the llames had burst through the basement windows. When the department arrived everything under the big theatre, iucludiug dressing rooms, stage paraphernalia and baggage, was ablaze. IT WAS A KIKE TKAi\ The tire was burning so fiercely that a second battalion of engines wan o&llod out and It required all they could do to keep the Qames from eating a path into the upper stories of the building. As it was, the foyer and the chairs in the parqnetto circle caught lire at one time, aud blazed brightly until four or five streams "f water were turned on the Haines. The firemen chopped gaping hulos in the lioor, tore down tbe costly hangings that' ornamented the main entrance and even broke through the stage In their anx-ety to save the building. Before they got through the theatre proper was near'y I ruined. The loss to the theatre and build- ; Ing will not be less than $125,000. The entire interior of the theatre is practically ! destroyed. 1 What with water, smoke and the use of axes, whioh latter was rendered necessary to reach the basement, tho theatre will have to be rebuilt and renovated. That it was a tire trap was shown from the way the fiamcs ran through the structure. Every thing in it burned like a tinder box. despite all the firemen could i do. A N A It HO w \:a< ,U-K. Five companies of firemen who had been stationed near the main entrance barely escaped with their Urea. The fellows were pushing through to the stage when they heard a loud creaking above their headB.

Tus engine and postal car were wrecked, and engineer V)avid V.'Wr was killed. The fireman was injured. Xo passengers were hurt. The rumor that tho striking track yardu switchmen had repented of their haste aud askod to be taken baok by the Switch ing Association at tbe old rate of wageB, Is found to be groundless. Tbe switch men are still out to-night, and the packing town is idle once more. Tbe toadt have dissolved their Switching Association, declared the strikers discharged, and say that each road will bnrtaftor do its own switching. General Manager Chappeil, of the Chicago and Alton, in speaking of the switch-meu's strike at the stock yards, declared that every Chicago road and all their connections, aud every railroad iu the United States will be tied up unless there is a withdrawal of the demauds of tbe striking switchmen of the Stock Yards Switching Association. The accident was caused by an open switch, which a brakeman named Kay, a- ho had been injured aud was lying in a caboose e.ou\d not. c\ose, and wbicb. the conductor of tho train forgot to close. Kay ar.d the tireman havr* siuce died. A boy who wac looking at the wreck was struck by Lhe train and perhaps fat illy injured. a Ml si'LA l ED SWITCH. Mn.LEN, Neb., Aug. 20.-Owing to nurtplacud switch two freight trains on the Burlington and iibsBomi iiiver road col-lidedat this poiut yesteiduy, killing three persons and seriously injuring six others.

The tret: bound train was run in on a side, track to allow tbe east bound train to pas?. The switohmau, however, was unable to close the switch and attempted to stop the other train, but waited too long before dolus so, aud tbe two traina came together with a terrific orash. Six of tho trainmen were badly hurt, but none of them will probably die. �N fVvi'KF.^.a WH.E.CK.KU. Leayi:nwoutii, Kan., Aug. 26.-The Kansas City Express was wrecked near hero thia morning.
