Latige and valuable deposits of tin have been fonad in Texas. Another trinmpb for the MoKinley bill. Three cents a yard for Amerioan print olotbt! Wby, jt used to be doable that before that tariff "tax" gave domestic mills a ohanoe to run on full time. Thus the Kepublioan policy of protection ood-tioucs to vindicate itself. The satiifaction which some Democratic newspspers aeem to tilce in making buai-q88b failures conspicuous is very peculiar, inasmuch as these reverses follow on Demooratio victory, which renders the country doubtful as to its political and commercial future. Spain has followed in the wake of Germany . aod France in increasing the duty oo ber imports. Her Finance Minister has issued a decree deolarinf that Spain will follow a protective policy. Nor does she mean to do things in a balf way style. The ioereaae on some articles is almost 100 per cent. CotiNTKT wells, in comparison with city water, are always supposed to be comparatively pure, yet an epidemic of typhoid fever in a small town in Cumberland Valley, led to an investigation, when it was diacovared that there was not a well of pure drinking water in th3yer, ftexgeant, A troop.

Captain Wallace was tomahawked squarely In the forehead; Lieutenant Kinzie received but a alight wound iu tbe cord of tbe ankle. Army Surgeons, Captain Qoff, Lieutenant Kenna and Captain Ewing are oaring for the wounded. "Uncla Tow'i" Anneal. 'Uncle Tom's Cabin" is nothing if aot an annual. Like tbe oaleadar and the almanac, it comes once a year and people are bappy. It seems to fill an aching void, and, no doubt, that the filling might cosae early in the yejr 1891 Is the reason ^let-son's gigantio "Bncle Tom's Cabin" will be presented to-morrow afternoon and eve* uing at tbe Opera House.

The teacher's profession is the open door to a life of usefulness. It is, in thousands of cases, tbe stepping stone to a anscessful busieese career. The good teaoher need never be a drudge.

London-, Deo. 30.-A terrible conflagration broke out in this oity to-day, en Qaeem Victoria aod Thames streets, near Blaokfriara bridge. Between four and five blocks of buildings were destroyed, making the greatest fire London has experienced in recent years. There was no loss of life aod but few acoidenu amoag tbe firemen. One mao was taken to the hospital io.a partially auSooated coadition but he is said to be in no danger. Tbe oaase of the fire is unknown, and the amount of damage done is now estimated to be �2,O0O,O0O. FANNED m- THE WIND. After the fire broke out foarteeo engines were soon on tbe spot, aod the firemen did tbeir dtmost.bat with little sucoess, to check the "course of the flames. A high wind was blowing, and it materially added to the fury of the flames, while hindering the firemen in their efforts to save property. Terrible sheets oi flames and olonda of hot smoke were frequently whirled dan-geroDsly near tbe strujtgliag fireman, who met with little or no success in their battle with tbe fiery element. The large wholesale fur mauufactory of Revilloo Freres, extending from No. 127 to No. 141 C^ueea Victoria street, was doomed shortly after the fire gaioed strong headway. Following this news was the information that a large paper warehouse, a number of fancy goods stores, and the.Goloher eleo-tric light and power comptoy's building ware also a complete prey to tbe flames. FIRE DEPARTMESI HKLPLKflS. The flames spread as rapidly on all aides as if there were no firemen or fire eagioea present. Immense crowds of people gathered on the bridge over the Thasaes and od the streets runaiog down to the river where a good view of tbe coofligratioo oonld be bad. Tbe housetops seemed to be alive with people bent upon seeing all they could see of London's latest wholesale de-atruction of property by fire, and many people expressed the hope that this disaster would at last. bring about reform in the London Fire Brigade and ite long needed remodeling npon tbe plan of the New York Fire Depaitment. It seems strange to many people, in view of the terrible fire of a week or so ago, when nearly a dozen buildings waredestroyed on Praed atreet, that old fashioned manual fire engines should still be in use in the Loodoo fire brigade, while the ateamets, or staam fire engines in use, seem to be utterly behind the times. As the fire pra,:res8ed it spread to the headquarters of tbe Salvation Army, illuminating the. red-painted "blood and fire" building iu the most ominous manner. The Salvationists worked like beavers in their efi'arts to place tbe records and other property of tb3 army in a plaoa of safety before it was too late. WHERE THE FIBS HTARTk\>. ^ Upon the authority of the London Fire Brigade Chiefs upon the scene sf tbe dis-tter it ia announced that the fire originated in tbe building ocoepied by C. Davidson & Sons, paper and paper -felt manufacturera and ptper bag makers at No. 110 Queen Victoria street. This building extended back into Upper Than*s street. It was a large structure, and was completely gutted, as was also that of Adolpb Frankau & Company, manufacturers of pipes and importers of tobacao atNo. 121 Qusen Victoria street. Old St. Benet's Church, Paul's wharf, between No. 225 and No. 220 Upper Thames street, a famous Welch ohutoh, also caught fire, iti blazing steeple form ing one of tbe most striking featares of the grandly terrible scene. Tbe firemen at one time managed to obtain control of tbe flames at this point, and the oonflagra-tioD, so far as St. Benet's, was for a time arrested. After four squares had been burned the fire was arrested. Beaatlfal Falntlagi. Miss Annie Snyder, of Salons, has just finished two beautiful paintings which are real gems of art aud show the skill of the artist.
