A disastrous fire broke out at Ash
land on the 11th, at 4 o'clock in the
morning, originating in a blacksmith
shop. The fire was so far under way
when discovered as to baffle all atempts
to check it until every building
on the west side of Main street
to the bridge on the north was
swept away and the flames had
reached the fire-proo: brick building
of J. V. McCall on the south, where
the fire was got under control, after
destroying the false roof of that build
ing. The loss is estimated at $26,000.
The Tidings office was among the

are interesting enough to make it
worth while that they should be plain

genious combination, fathered by Gar-
field, for giving the speakership either
to Garfield himself or to Kelly, accord
ing as the White-house may or may
not succeed in commanding the con
fidence of the greenback people in the
new congress. The president has
been induced by Garfield to believe
that by calling congress together on
March 18th the administration will be
enabled to prevent the democrats
from organizing their own house.
