DtsaPTRoCS FtRE. The alarm of fire
rang out about four o'clock Wednesday
morning, jlist at the hour when most peo
ple sleep soundest. It took longer than
ttnal to arouse our citizens to the fact that
there was an actual and veriNble fire, but
when they did appreciate the fact they har
ried to the "front" with great nnnnimi-y.
The fire was found to be In the two one
story frame buildings oil the corner of Fer
ry and First streets, the corner -building
occupied by Chas. Bourgnnles. watches,
jewelry, etc.. while the adjoining building
wa occupied by Geo. Weller as a suloou.
Engine Xo. 1 was on the ground first, tak
ing water at the cistern at the intersection
of First and Ferry streets, within a few
feet ot the fire, and was soon throwing
water; but the fire had gained ctich head
way that it was found Impossible to save
flic building", and all the. energies' of the
Fire Department were directed to save Mr.
John Bngg? elegant new two-story 'frame
bu-int-ss L"Bfl that joined the Lnrulug
building; on the cast It was a hot content
between the engine r.MO the. fire for the
mastery, anu.it one time the whom Side f,T '
the new building was apparently- a solid I
sheet ot flame, and it was. thought impossi- j
b!e to save it; hut One! saw the' danger,
and although their engine stood so close to
the fire that the heat blistered the paint on
that portion next to the fire, yet. they
buckled to it. redoubled their, exertions,
and eventually got control ot the tire. At
this juncture Linn Engine Co.'s steamer,
which had been '-set" nt the ditch just below
First on Brondalbin, but had met with
some bad luck, delaying her getting into
working older, came into action, throwing
two stream of water, and the firu wa sub
dued in a jifiy. The fire turned .through
the sidi; g to ttie plastering in two or three
places on Mr. Briggs' building, and the
whole side and a portion of the front black
ened pud charred. The greater portion of
the goods in Mr. Briggs stove emj-oriiiin
were removed to the street, white the good.
lett in the building were more or less dam
aged bv the water, the greatest damage, of
course, lieing to the building. We suppose
hi loss will probably be at least one thou
sand dollars. Mr. Bonrgardes was carry
ing a stock that two mouth ago invoiced
nearly or quite $'3,000; on this he had an
insurance of $3,500. Lithe saloon was a
billiard table. Imt fixtures, etc.. valued at
1.200. on which there is an insurance of
$:;00. Mr. Briggs is lnlly insured. The
building destroyed were old frames the
property of Mr. Peterson, and were not
insured so tar a we cau learn. .The actual
loses will probably not fiot up more than
six thousand dollars. The buildings direct
ly opposite, one of them the property ot
Mr. J. Gradwohl, were damaged to some
extent by the rrea! heat. The fire seem?
to have originated between the two build
ings, and was caused by a defective fine,
the bursting of j, coal oil lamp that was
kept burning during the nigl.t. incendia
rism, "spontaneous combustion, " or some
other cause. Each reader can take his
choice as to the origin of the fire we con
fess our inability to give any positive in
formation on the matter.
Dkoppkd Dead. Early Monday morn
ing John Dehr.ore, or as he was more gen
erally known ""One-eyed John," dropped
dead at or near the corner of. First and
Ferry streets. John, was In search ot hi

monster. "When deceased fell to the
ground, parties near supposing him to.be
laboring under the in flue nee of drink.
picked him np ami started for the city cala
boose ; but upon arriving at One's engine
house, ami laying him down for a moment.
it was discovert d that, instead of a drun
ken man they were carrying an inanimate
piece of clay. The Coroner was notified.
who immediately summoned a jury. The
hotly was examined by Dr. D. M. Jones,
and from his evidence, and that ot other
testimony, the jury found that deceased
came to his death by apoplex, superin
duced by intemperance. John had been a
hard drinker for some years past, and had
at one time been -declared-'! j common
drunkard by the Common Council, ami sa
loon keepers warned not to furnish him
with liquor. Deceased was an hjoffensive
ierson, his only fault s far as1 we know
living his inordinate love of strong drink
Thus another of God's creature's has gone
down to fill a drunkard's -gravo in the
prime of life, being only about forty-three
years old. And yet in the light of his ex
ample men will go on partaking of the
flowing bowl, assured that sooner or later
it will destroy them body and soul. How
many more in this community are follow
ing in the footsteps of John LWlmore ?
No Excuse for his Lying -Some one
handed hi a notice tor publication In regard
to one of the college societies. - The matter
was published as handed to its, whereupon
the weak-headed little fellow that writes
tue suiy whisky puffs for the UocKtau ao-vei-User
accuses us of lying. ' Of course it Is
a feather in the cap of this Cheeky little
nondescript to be able to boast that ho has
found the slightest error in the columns ot
the Register and he makes the met of it
by outright lying in regard to it a per
fectly natural fh'ng for him, nowever, its
the truth from him is the grand exception.
while lying is his normal condition, his
whole stock In trade. This beiiipr the case
we snppose he Will continue lying and

despondency cast its dark shadows oyer
the banner of Friendship. Love and Truth,
by his word of wisdom and prophecies of
a brighter sky in the future. Yes,, our re
warded Patriarch has gone gone to join
comrades that crossed before. The silver
chord of life is broken, and the mortal re
mains rest beneath the sod of the valiey.
His wise counsel and words of truth will be
heard no more within the bounds of the
three links. But his works will live long
aftei, and his word of whe doings will
shine with renewed-ltiMurc in years to
come, and his memory will ever remain

Ki hx & Miller's Patent Cc-mrisep
Harrow a'ni Pulverizer. Tin U an
age of invention, and the best minds of the
country arc constant!- bending their ener
gies to discover new agents, new labor-'
saving machinery and implements calcu
lated to lessen the expenditure of human
mncle. And the fact that every useful
invention offered to the public is . well re
ceived, and the inventor paid, as a gener
al tiling;, munificently for his brain-labor.
an added stimulus to others to study
out improvements on implements already
Invented, or to add something entirely
new to the labor-saving machinery of the
world. After much study and thought
Messrs. Kntin & Miller, of this city, have
succeeded in putting together what they
call a "combined Harrow and Pulverizer,"
which seems fair to supercede all other
similar inventions. It possesses a number
of advantages over any other implement
of the kind, and should be seen bv every
farmer in the county It is cheap, durable. '
md cm bo built light or' heavy to accoin--
module the desires of all. Not the least
among its recommendations Is its entire
simplicity in fact, to onr view, this is one
of its chief excellencies. The model ex
hibited to us contains seventy teeth. The
harrow consists of a heavy framework of
wood, nearly .square. Passing through
the sides of this frame, and just inside, is
an iron rod ; this rod passes through the
upper end of six bars of, wood. 2 inches
thick by a foot wide, confaiuirg the harrow-teeth.
These bars or sect ions pass
out under and beyond the hinder part of
the frame, and the weight of this part of
the frame, together with the weight ot the
driver, whose seat is attached to the frame,
rests upon them. As each bar or section
acts independently of its fellow, no matter
how uneven the ground, all will be harrow
ed alike. Our farmers should call at Harry
Knlin's shop and examine the model of the
new implement each for himself, that he
may judge ot its value as a labor saver.
