SQU1BZED THS LILY.
Capteb Holt Has Eajojed Prlrllas-a
Granted to Few.
Oapt Holt of the British steamship
Ifrndhurst, is a native of the Island of
Jersey, in the English channel. He
recently related some instances of life
ttpon the island to a reporter. He said
that whta Lily Langtry was in her
teens he had taken her in his arms and
qweezed her just as only good sailors
can. His people lived in the parish of
8t Saviour, over which the Rev.
William Corbet Le Breton, the
Lily's father, was the dean.
Beginald Le Breton, a son,
and Capt Holt were mem
bers of the same a thletlo club. Lillian
Le Breton, he said, was no prettier than
many other of the maids of Jersey. As
young girl she was religious. - This
characteristic, with her fine education
and home surroundings, made her at
. tractive. After leaving home as the
bride of Edward Langtry, Capt nolt
aaw no more of Lillian until a few
years ago on the stage in Edinbunr.
Scotland, tftio knew he was in the
audience, but he says she gave no sign
of recognition to her former acquaint
ance in the parish of St Saviour.

plosion resembling an earthquake de
stroyed about fl.000,000 worth ol
property here to-day and caused the
lose of at least one life and the injury
of a number of people. Practically
every business structure in Litchfied
was wrecked and scores of dwellings
render M uninhabitable. Panic reigned
for hours. '
About 3:15 a. m., an alarm of fire
waa turned in from the Litchfield
"Planet" mills in the southwest part
of the city, owned by Ke or & ta ol
St Louis, said to be one the largest
if not the largest single our making
establishment in the w rid. Jiefore
the firemen arrived the fire had gained
such headway that for some time
nothing could be done to check it and
it seemed as if the entire south part of
town would be consumed.
The fire is supposed to have origi
nated by a spark from a passing loco
motive falling in one of the dust
The hose, hook and ladder companies
had har succeeded in getting their
apparatn in working order when an
explosion, caused j the flames' sud
den contact with pent up mill dust,
shook the earth over a wide area,
while the atmospheric concussion was
felt as far as Decatur, a distance of
fifty miles. Despite this the firemen
battled with the flames for three
hours, finally subduing ''tern to such
an extent that adjoining p ty was
John C Carve, heud miller, in making
an effort to secure his t ols from the
burning building, was stunned by the
explosion and in endeavoring to e ape
was pinned against the smokestack
and burned to death.
The large elevator on the Wabash
track containing 250,000 bushels of
wheat caught fire from the mills and,
together with its contents was de
stroyed. Ten or twelve cars of wheat
standing on the house track were re
duced to ashes.
A number of serious but not neces
sarily fatal accidents are reported.
The mill was the property of Kehlor
Bros, of St Louis. Its capacity was
2,00) barrels of flour dally. It em
loved 150 men. General Manager
mlth stated that the amount of in
surance carried on the mill, elevator
and contents was about 1350,0 JO, while
the loss will run up to almost 91,000,
