Walls Prevent of Moat JEvor Injured. CHICAGO, Feb, o'clock Thursday morning fire originated in the Adams and Market street corner of the Farwell block and before the flames were under control that section of the building was completely gutted from top to bottom. A first alarm was speed- ily succeeded by a second, then a third and finally a fourth alarm was turned in, bringing engines from all parts of the city. The fire tug Geyser came to the rescue, and threw a heavyistream upon the blazing structure. The fire started 4n the pressing de- partment of Work Bros., manufacturers of clothing and uniforms, -on the sixth floor, and spread from one floor to an- other with great rapidity. It required the greatest exertion on the part of the firemen to prevent the spread of the flames throughout the entire block. A fire-wall running through the block sixty-six feet on Monroe street and an- other running paiallel with the river 175 feet west of Market street, saved the north end of the building, occupied by J. V. Farwell Co. The firms which occupied the burned end of the building are Work Bros., manufacturers of clothing and uni- forms, and Taylor Bros., manufacturers of hats and caps. The Farwell block was built in separ- ate risks, each divided thick concrete walls. The burned portion is one risk and cost one-ninth of the whole cost of tho building, or Had not the concrete walls proved effective a blaze would have resulted. M. G. Embel Sons, occupying the next section north of the bu-sned portion, suf- fered no loss. Thirty-two engines, sev- en chemicals and the two fire boats, Chi- cago and Geyser, fairly drowned out the fire, flooding the streets and sewers. Tbe fire was under control by o'clock. The fire started, it is thought, from an overheated steam coil. The losses are- Work Bros Co., Taylor Bros., S50.000: building, Mendel Bros., Insur- ance not yet known, but the losses are believed to be fully covered. William Sallander, of truck No. 2, fell from a ladder, striking on his head on the stone pavement. He was terribly cut, his skull fractured and he will probably die. John Meyers, of truclt Xo. 1, fell with the crashing in of the third floor and was dragged out uncon- scious. It is thought he will recover. Tlrfee other firemen were badly cut about the face and hands by flying glass, but not dangerously hurt. Viet IBM of Weatera Creed for Gala tm Iftaatt ItaacUd fcy Wetae. GAJKESVUAJE, Tex., Feb. hM of murder in the Chickasaw Nation, near Puroell, a few days ago. Two cowboys while hunt- ing cattle in the WashiU bottom dis- covered a covered wagon standing in a ravine with tour bodies near it. One was that of a man probably sixty years old, another that of an old woman, while the other two of a young woman, twenty years of age, and a little girl some ten years old. Wolves had visited the spot since the murder, for the bodies were mangled and the clothing was torn to shreds. All the victims had been shot. Robbery the object, as every thing in the wagon had been scattered about and was lying near on the ground. The discoverers dug four shallow graves and placed the bod ies in them, in order to keep wild beasts from further molesting them. The young men went to Purcell and reported their discovery to a deputy marshal, who afterwards Started for the scene of the murder with a -oosse to make a thorough investiga- tion of the affair. Those murdered, it is believed, composed a family moving from Texas to Oklahoma, and met their fate at the hands of desperadoes who inhabit that region of country. AH ASSASSIN'S WORK.

PAW PAW, Mich., Feb. fiend- ish attempt to assassinate Dr. Marvin Fosdick was made Tuesday night at his home in Aim ena, ten miles from here. The doctor is sixty years old and a bachelor. lie was sitting at a table in his office, hard at work, when suddenly the report of two gunshots rang out. The window was completely shattered and Dr. Fosdick fell to the floor ap- parently dead. The only occupant of the house with him was the hired man, who was in an adjoining room, and as soon as the shots were fired he ran to Fosdick's side and found that both charges had entered his employer's neck and shoulders. It wai hardly thought possible for him to re- cover, but he is still alive. Albert A. Fosdick, county surveyor, and brother of Fosdick, was arrested by Sheriff McFarland Wednesday night and lodged .in jail on suspicion of being con- nected with the crime. FRIGHTFUL ACCIDENT. A Locomotive's Boiler Explodes, Killing Two Men aud Badly Wounding Three Others.

Far- rell, of Greasy Ridge, who broke his father's neck with a chair Sunday, has been lodged in jail here. The mur- dered man was very old, was nearly blind and quite deaf, but seems to have been very cruel to his son, who bears serious injuries to show what he en- dured before he struck the fatal blow .that made him fatherless and a mur- derer. It is probable that the evidence against the murderer will be purely cir- cumstantial, as father and son were alone when the fight took place, the young man denying that he struck his father, but was seen holding a chair in a threatening attitude when the family rushed into the room. He takes his ar- rest very coolly and refuses to talk con- cerning the terrible tragedy. Behind the for Forgery. 1 Mr. VERXOS, Feb. R.
