Flobs^gb, Wis., Sept. 15.—Fire broke out at 2 p. M. yoBterdiiy in a shed in the rear of the post-olfic© on Central Avenue. A strong south-west wind was blowing and the fire rapidly spread to adjoining buildings, destroying every structure on both sides of the blocJt between Norway and Cyclops. Fiity-six buildings in all.  No rain had fallen for six weeks and everything was very dry, which, aided by the high wind, caused the names to sweep through the two * blocks with the swiftness of a tornado. The Avenue House, on Florence Avenue, caught fire and was destroyed, as was al*o W. C. Main’s livery stable and dwelling on Cyclops «treet. iSo great ..as the speed of the üery devastation that except in a few instances no steps could be taken to remove goods and valuables, and many goods which were taken out of the burning buildings were greatly damaged.  The firemen worked hard to save property, and four streams of water weris employed. They couJd only prevent the lire Irom spreading beyond the two entire squares. The opera house, a large íyo-^ory ijwme e8(»p^ destruction, altiiouga it caught tire several times. Had tuis building burned the western portion of the city would undoubtedly have been wiped out of existence. The losses will aggre-Sfate fully |75,000 and the insurance about f20j000.  The indvidual loetes are:  R. B. Webb, hardware, ^11,500; insurance, 14,000.  H. D. Fisher, two buildings, loss, $4,-000; insurance unknown (Fisher is in Wyoming).  VV. H.

The majority of the victiujs will rebuild at once, but some have been reuderea penniless The fire was probably incendiary.  stablislied ISiS.  incorporated 13S4.  n  .SliovcMiiCo.  MANITOWOC, WIS.

A dispatch of the 13th from Havana, via Key West, says: In some localities along the coast during the recient hurricane entire fishing villages were swept away. At Sagua 100 corpses have been discovered, which were washed from graves. Between Carapachos and Car-anats sixteen coasting schooners are high and dry in the woods. Fisii were killed in vast numbers and hundreds of cattle were drowned. At iSanto Domingo City the dead exceed liity and the injured over seventy-five. At ('ayo Francis, the lighthouse \V:is blown down and the inmates were drowned; forty-8i:^t natives are known to have perished at Caribarien. In the Vuelta Arriba and Vuelta Abajo districts the ruin is complete. The cane fields were lain fiat, in Vuelta Abajo the number of dwellings, huts and out-houses blown down in the district is estimated at 3,500 and the loss at $1,500,000. Tbe entire Jniit and vegetable crop is completely lost. The total number of deaths throughout the island is stated at 800.  VICTIMS OF THE PLAGUE.  Xearly One Hundred Xew Cases Reported in. Jacksonville in One Day,  Ttie long season of wet weather, followed by a few hours of sunshine, has had the effect of rapidly developing new eases of fever. The record to-day was badly broken, ninety-three new cases being reportt^d to the Board of Health. Only one de»th, however, was reported and that of an infant. A number of people are critically ill and it is feared there will be another large list of dead to-morrow. Total cases reported to date, 880; total deaths, 117. A medical board of more than a dozen phvsicians from other cities is located in the Harris block. More are needed as well as more nurses. The new cases are more largely among negroes. The negroes cling to the city. The propriety of asking the stoppage of contributjons has been mooted, but the developments of the last few days indicate that the needs will Ije larger than anticipated.  STATE NEWS.  Qi aii^ abound on the farms around Prairie du Chien. The past two seasons have been very favorable for the voung birds and large fiocks are seen in the stubble fields.  Maxfieu) and Beecher, the noted burglars in jail at Iji Crosse, nearly gained their freedom by sawing off* a window bar.  The Milwaukee Vinegar Company, of Milwaukee, have filed articles of incorporation with a capital of $5,000. The incorporator» are A. Melcher, i.. F. Ringer and W. C. Wendel.  At a meeting of the Congregational Church members at Washburn it was unanimously decided to retain Rev. E. Cory, the present pastor, for the coming year. Mr. Cory, besides being a very fine minister, ii a ereat lover of athletic sports, and is catcher for the Washburn Base Ball Club. It is safe to say his presence on tbe ball ground has done much toward elevating the games in that city. It is an unusual thing to hear an oath' or profane word during a ball game there. He is very popular among all classes, both in the pulpit and in his daily life.  M. C. Kixcanxox, a river pilot of thirty-four yeais’ experience, nas examined tke Wisconsin River from the mouth of the Kickapoo to the Mississippi River, and found in many places the channel is only eighteen inches deep, the lowest since he can remember.  At the national encampment G. A. R. at Columbus, 0., Milwaukee was chosen as the place of the next annual session. It is estimated that iin0,000 people will attend.  Select Knights, A. 0. U. W., in session at Madison, elected the following ofilcera: President, George W. Linn, Anchor Legion; vice-president, W. H. 'McQuirk, Star of the West Legion; treasurer, E. P. Haven, Anchor Legion: secretary, D. T. Lillard, editor of the Anchor and Shield, all of Chicago.  The state veterinary surgeon has unearthed four cases of glanders in Chippewa Falls, and ordered the horses to be shot. One of the animals is a blooded one worth $300.  Wm. F. Baebenrotii and Albert Butcher, arrested tor opening a dam of the Chippewa Lumber & Boom Company, on Yellow River, settled the matter by paying costs and damages, it appearing that they let off the water for the purpose of fishing.  The August lumber deal by Brown, Earlv & Co., of Chippewa Falls, may result in a legal contest, the purchasing Iowan claiming that the nature of the lands and the amount of timber on them was misrepresented. The tracts are in Chippewa, Price and Sawyer Counties, and the consideration was $100,000.  A PORTRAIT of Bishop Kemper that gives great satisfaction to his personal Iriends is to be i^laced in the gallery of the State Histori(»l Society.  William Krause, one of the oldest citizens of Ashland County, was killed by the cars at Minorsville.  Louis Noie went to sleep on the railway track near Ashland while under the infiuence of liquor. A coroner’s jury returned a verdict of death due to nis own carelessness.  A FOUNTAIN has been erected in the center ot the rotunda of the state capi-tol, around which the potted plants now. out doors will be placed and kept all winter.  H. O. Jackson, ex-general manager of the Badger State Mutual Benefit Company, of Eau Claire, which dissolved last April, and in regard to which there were published derogatory reports in several newspapers, is engaged in settling all the indebtedness of the company, much of whitih he says ought to )e paid by others than himself. He claims that his course throughout has been fair and square, and that he has been misrepresented by parties who have claimed he used names without authority in the organization of tiie company.  “Bracken Bkae,’' the summer residence of John Johnston, just outside the city limits of Milwaukee, was destroyed by fire on the 11th. Loss about $10,rxX); insurance $4,000.  Jamics Dunn died suddenly at Prairie du Chien, on the day following the death of ]Mrs. Michael Dunn, his sister-in-law, who expired while kneeling in prayer.  While three boys were shooting at a target with a rifle, at Eau Claire, Edward Thompson, one of them, was accidentally shot in the lungs. He cannot recover.  There are lo,982 p(‘nsloners in Wisconsin and the amount paid to them quarterly is ^1)6,347.20.  The barn of Ira Burns, in the town of Burns, La Crosse County, was struck by lightning and destroyed. The loss is IGOO; insurance. |:>50.  The state convention of Congregational Churches is to be held at C’rosse in two weeks. An attendance of 200 is expected.  W. L. Thomas, a ival e<^tate dealer at Ashland, is under arrest for an alleged misappropriation of lunds belonging to N. McDermott.  Henry CoiiBiNEAU was knocked ofi Madison Street bridge, Eau Claire, at 4 o’clock on the morninii of the 11th, by footprtds who had waylaid him for the purpose ot robbiuij* him, he having come, from Hum]>ird wilii $1.*)00. He fell upon the dry river bed, v distance of twenty-five feet, but escaped more serious injury than a sprainc-d ankle.  BINED m TINDER.  An Entire Block at Washburn Wiped Out by Fire»  THIRTY BUILDINGS DESTROYED-  Tk« Loss £stlm»ted »t •150,000—  Vaabl« to Battle With th* Flames Owlni^to the Absence of Fire Apparatus—The L.o«Me aud Insurance.  Washbcrn, Wis., Sept. 14.—A fire which broke out in this city at about 2:30 thia morning wiped out the business part of the place, destroy mg in all about thirty buildings and causing a lose of nearly $150,000 with smaU insurance.  When discovered the fire could have been easily extinguished had the city been provided with fire apparatus; but owing to inability to get a stream of water on the biaze. the flames swept from building to building without check or stay, the efforts of the citizens to prevent tùe spread of the fire by means of hand apparatus and buckets being utterly usètess.  As Boon as it became evident that the fiâmes could not be checked, assistance was asked of Ashland, just across the bay, but ttie company arrived too late to be of service, and one after another stores, the Opera House block and the public liorary were wiped out.  The fire originated in an old barn. Dr. Bradley and a traveling man had a narrow escape from death. They became blinded with smoke in one of the burning buildings and were with diifi-cultv got out.^  TÉe principal losses, with insurance, are as follows:  Opera Block ownfu by Aune A Ovtrby; loss $16,l'00; Insurance, r .WO.

Most of the parties burned out will rebuild at once. * A spirit of determination to build up better than ever prevails in the town and that will no doubt be done.  The insurance rate in the burned block was 10 per cent., which partly accounts for the small amount of insurance carried. The oarcies burned out lose nearly everything and that inelud-ed in most cases their all.  Juneau, Wis.. Sept. 14.—tire broke out in the rear of the résidence of E. C. Lewis, of this city, at 6 o’clock lasteven-ing, destroying the kitchen and storerooms of the residence. Loss estimated at $1,000; fully insured.

Herr Branders, at the head of a force of Sanuians, who favor the pretensions of Tama '»se, has had an encounter in the bush with tbe rebelf* and ieven of hia force were k filed, the rebels losing but three men. >iany of the «x>mbatants were wounded. Herr Branders* force numbered 16,400 men while that of the rebels ia ;i,0(X) strong. The deposition of Tamaaese is inevitable unless the Germans lend han active funpnrt.  PLAY HOUSE IN ASHES.

Toulon, Sept. 15.—The newly ilesigned submarine war vessel, concerning which there has been an unwonted degree of interest and speculation manifested in European naval circles for several moBths past, was successfully laonHied^ here to-day in the presence of a distinguished crowd of naval and military officers and engineers. Hie boat, which it is predicted will' necessarily lead to a complete revolution in naval warfare, was designed by M. Ramazoti, a government engineer. It is so constructed as to be easily made to dive beneath the keel of the largest iron-clad and by means of special apparatus fasten explosive cartridges to the sides of the enemy's vessel, maintaining electrical <^nne«tion with the cartridges, so attached for the purpose of their subsequent explosion.

The county register’s office at Kala-mazor», Mich., has been thronged with people, desirous of knowing whether their titles are clear or whether mort-g-iges have been plastered on them. Jennie M. Swetland, an emi>loye of the office, was arrested recently for forging the discharge of a mortgage. An ex-amination shows that her operations have been quite extensive. Perry Sherman, her uncle, has eight mortgages and transfers of some from other people to her and none are genuine. Several of her other relatives have been duped in a similar manner. Her swindles are said to foot up $10,000, besides a large indebtedness to many merchants. What she has done with tue money is a mystery. Her examination is fixed for October 1.
