Breckenfleld fc Weber's Soda Gen
erator. Blown up.
Saturday evening the clerk atBreckeii
field & Weber's saloon, went into the
cellar preparatory to manufacturing some
soda water. He threw the marble dust
and viterol into the vat, closing it up al
most tight. The pas began escaping at
once, when he elosed the safety valve so
that no gas could escape whatever, the
pressure soon became so heavy, bting
from 300 to 400 lbs. pressure to the
square inch, that an explosion was inevi
table. Fortunately the doors of the eel-
lar were an open wiucu gave tue iras a
chance to escape. The report was very
loud, and shook the whole of Fitzgerald
block, but not enough to do any damage.

Her Fair Face
As per announcement the eclipse was
visible Saturday eveninir, and no one
ever beheld a more beautiful sight, the
evening being all that it took to make a
complete one, not a cloud to obstruct
the view. The heavens seemed to stand
in awe and wonderment at the sight of
the copper-colored planet creeping up
from the eastern horizon, she seemed
grand in her majestic shroud. The
shadow of the earth crept over tho beam
ing face, covered it slowly and then as
slowly withdrew. The sight was simply
grand. Not every person understood it,
and those who did not passed it by as
though it was nothing wonderful. But
to the one who studies the sciences and
holds communion, so to speak, with the
heavenly bodies and their movements,
it was no common thing; it was
an occurrence that caused the ad
miration of the astronomer's eye, and
made him stand in amazement at the in
finity of the sublime being that rules the
planets in their revolution.

A Nice Sum to Play With.
A statistician not long ago tried
to give an idea of what two hundred
million dollars meant.
"It would," said he, "if taken in silver,
cover a space of nearly sixty acres, and
its weight would be 7,160 tons. It would
take a freight train two miles and a half
long to carry it, and it ceuld not be
hauled by less than twelve locomotives.
These silver dollars would be so many
that if they were laid one touching the
other they would make a silver streak
from New York to San Fancisco, and
would run half as far again on into the
Pacific ocean. If they were piled up
dollar upon dollar they would make a
solid column 255 miles high, and if they
were put into one-dollar bills, the bills
would nearly reach around the world.
If the bills were piled up one upon
another, they would reach upward twelve
miles, and if they were sewed together,
edge to edge into a crazy quilt, they
would cover 746 acres." Ex.

A Drunkard Fired With a Chair
Last night Harry Westlake went into
the restaurant of Henry Jacobs and be
gan using obscene language and in
dulged in much improper conduct.
Westlake was invited to leave but re
fused to do so. Jacobs pushed him out

blow took effect in the forehead, causing
a slight wound. It was dressed this
moraing by Dr. E. W. Cook. There was
no arrests made though Westlake should
have been jerked up and a good fine im
posed upon him.

The Fire Boye Called Out.
Saturday night, or rather Sunday
morning at 2:30 the fire bell rang, which
brought the boys out of their sleepy cots
in double quck time. The blaze was in
a closet at Threildkcld & Burley's res
taurant. The closet contained several
cloths saturated with coal oil, and it is
supposed that they caught from spon
taneous conbustion. The fire was extin
guished by a bucket of water, and the
boys retired to their respective homes in
anything but good humor.
