And in His Mad Bage Threat
ens the Destruction of
A Night of Anxiety and Ar
duous Labor for the
The Most Spirited Affair of the
About 1 o'clock la t night a m n
rushed into the ticket office corner of
? arnam and Fifteenth streets , ciy-
ng fire. Joe Teahon , who had been
ept up late and was writing at the
time , immediately sent in an alarm to
; he central office , which was reported
to engine house No. 3. The doors
lew open as if by magic , and in less
, han a moment's time the department
was on its way to the location of the
ire , which was in the portion of Cen
tral block occupied by the wholesale
iqaor establishment of Her & Co.
The first man on the ground eaw
through the doors a mass of flame ,
which seemed to proceed from under
the staircase , and which rolled and
whirled about like a the revolution of
a great wheel When engine No. 3
arrived at the corner of Farnam and
Fourteenth , nothing was yet to be
seen from the outside but a volume of
smoke which poured out from the
front , but a moment later there was a
sudden burst of flame from both th
fcgnt and rear of the building. The
Fire King" took its station at the
corner of Twelfth and Douglas , and
the "Omana' ' . 1. at the cistern on
Thirteenth andHaraey , and in a very
short time three streams of water ,
were being turned in on the front ot
Ac this time the fire was still
confined to the first flocr
of the building and alternately bUzed
with the fury which alcohol lends to
fire and rolled in dense black
VOLUMES OF SMOKE
from the doors and windows. Fed
by the rich store of combustibles , the
fire eoon extended to the second story
and then to the third , everywhere
aided by the material which formed
the stock of the firm. At ten min
utes to 2 o'clock the conflagration was
confined to the one portion of the
building , but was raging with such
intesnlty that the work of removing
the stock from adjoining stores began.
The fine merchant tailoring establish
ment of Frank Bstnge , was next door
to Her & Co.'s and the proprietor and
employes , aided by many willing
hinds , unloaded the shelves , one by
one , transferring the bolts of rich
cloth and valuables to the street ,
where they were piled promiscuously
on the sidewalk , in front of the Oma
ha National bank andHellman'sstore.
The heavy walnut show cases were
carried out and the store rapidly de
nuded of everything of a portable na
ture. By this time it begun to look
as if the block was doomed
and the work of removing the im
manse stock of Max Meyer & Co. be
gan. With more precaution the most
valuable wares had previously been
picked in the show cases , which were
now carried out one by one and de
posited In tie building occupied by
Pundt , Meyer and Ilippke. The
shelving was torn from the walls and
the safe from its plcca and removed ,
and then the pianos and organs stored
in the second story were one by one-
lowered by means of the elevator and
placed In position for removal if the
worst come to the worst.
A little before 3 o'clock the Du-
rants arrived and took their station
at the old Grand C.entral cistern on
had now complete sway in the three
stories of Der's division of the block ,
the shed , in the rear was on fire , and
the fiery element was rapidly spread
ing to the upper stories of the adjoin
ing buildings. That portion occupied
by the saddlery and harness store of
G. H. & J , S. Collins was the next
to fall a prey to the devouring ele
ments. The fire hero caught in the
third story and licked Its waydownwai d
bat not until a large portion of the
itock was saved. Goods were packed
and removed from S. P. Morse &
Go's , dry goods store and Ish's drug
store , but the valuable stock of Sam
uel Burns was not touched and it was
very fortunate , for it was of a char
acter that any careless handling must
have serlou ly damaged Mr. Burns
must have been by far the heaviest
oserbad he followed the example of
? rank Ramge and Max Meyer &
3o. , some of his wares
being more valuable than solid
rilver. The fire spread rapidly in the
upper stories nnd at times seemed to
threaten the entire block with destruc-
ion. It was fought principally from
khe front , and consequently raged
with the greatest fierceness in the rear.
The firemen fought it bravely. The
looks/ which wore as usual among
IB first on the ground placed their
eng extension ladders up from the
cy sidewalk to the roof in two differ-
nt places , and over their dan-
erous rounds the brave men
mounted to the roof or clambered
nto a seat upon the window ledge ,
from which they kept a stream play
ing upon the fire. The night was in
tensely cold , bnt fortunately there
was not s breath of wind or the block
raustinevIUbly have been destroyed ,

It is seldom that s great many
weeks pats by without the occurrence
of ni death among trans-continental
, on"ts , the grim reaper generally
gathering in those who , in the vain
hope of securing lost health , attempt
the dangerous ride over the moun
tains , which is hard upon even a per-
< ion with strong lungs.
A few weeks ago a lady from Penn
sylvania , Miss J. B. Free , passed
_ through Omaha , en route tq Californ
ia. She was in the last stages , almost ,
of consumption , and the journey was
made in hopes that it would result In
permanent benefit to her health. On
reaching the coast however , she found
henelf growing much worse , and
fearful that she would die in that
land so far from her home and friends ,
she started at once to return. She
was accompanied by a cousin , Mr.
Patton , the stock man , and by a lady
whose name was not learned. The
train she came on encountered the
roughest weather of the season , and
afte.- being delayed at various stages
of the route , was detained nine hours
at Cheyenne. Every atop seemed to
make the sufferer worse , SB it lessened
the chances of her living to reach
The train reached this city about
10:30 : Sunday night and the other side
Miss Free was found to be so low
that it was daemed best to stop over
there , and she was wheeled into the
Transfer hotel in an invalid chair and
carried up stairs to her room. There
she was laid away gently on the bed ,
and her traveling companions and the
porter began to make things about her
as comfortable as possible. It was too
lite , however , and In less than five
minutes after the dying woman hae
reached her journey's end , she leaned
over upon her right side , clasped her
hands and expired so quietly that she
seemed just to have fallen asleep.
The remains were properly caret

cased in a neat casket , they were for

Unprecedented Cold Wave
and Gale From the

J * \
[ ts Effect on Ballroadg and
: Business Generally.
The comparatively mild weather
which continued for several days last
week was succeeded Saturday evening
by a severe and sudden change.
About 2 o'clock the barometer , which
was very low , began to rise , and the
thermometer , which was at 27" above
zero , to falL A regular Nebraska
bllzzird set in from the northwest , ac
companied by a light , cutting snow.
At 9 o'clock Saturday night the
mercury was 8 ° above zero , a change
of 24 ° in seven hours. The
wind had risen to a gale
and had a velocity of 37 miles
an hour. At C o'clock Sunday morn
ing the thermometer had fallen to 3 ° ,
and only went up to 7 * above during
the day , though the wind had abated
considerably. At 9 o'clock last night
It was 3" above , at G a , m. to-day it
was 7 ° below , and at8 o'clock 8 * be
low. This was the lowest point
reached. The sudden change was in
many respects remarkable , aa the
weather has been quite warm west of
us fora week past , with considerable
snow among the mountains. The
cold snap extended no further west
than Nebraska and was confined to
Iowa ou The east , though it will prob-
bly travel eastward from us. The
thermometer Ltd not been below sere
west of us for a week , and this morn
ing was still 26" above zaro at Chey
The mean temperature of last month
was 11 * , which is lower than tbo mean
of any November for years past. On
one date the mercury fell to zero.
Sergeant Dey , of the signal office says
that the cold spell is ( likely to be ol
short duration , though he cannot
as yet tell definite about it , no re
ports having been received from St.
Paul or other northern stations. He
says we are bound to have a warm
spell to mike up for it during ( Decem
ber or January , which will be gooc
news to those who have to scramble
to get fuel enough to keep warm.
Of course the cold weather aifectec
the trains ou all the railroads. On
the pool line trains are one to two
hours late , the Northwestern arriving
about 10 o'clock this moraine ; . On
the Union Pacific , freight trains are
ten nd twelve hours late and passen
ger , trains In proportion. Saturday
night was one of the most severe nights
ever experienced on the eastern di
vision , the wind coming at a velocity
no * experienced before for years anc
making it extremely hazardous for
men to go on top of freight trains
at all. The engines ,
showed the result , freezing up every
few miles , but being fortunately keg ;
moving along , though very slowly.
They will reach Ogden on time.
The figures given above on the
thermometer are from the slgna'
office. About town the thermometers
indicated a much greater degree o :
cold. At Mr. 0. F. Wilklns the
msrcury fell to 16 ° t at Ticket Agent

There Is no new development in
the case of body snatching reported
in our last issue. The. dissecting
room remained under guard of
policeman until Sunday morning ,
'when ' District Attorney Ferguson sent
word to the marshal that unless the
body was identified it would have to
be returned to the medical authori
ties. A brother of the deceased Voas
arrived * from Iowa Sunday , and
with several friends called at room
twenty , but of 'coTrrse was unable ( o
identify the mutilated body there ,
and the keys were therefore turned
over to thd proper persons.
The affair has , however , created no
little feeling , and Several persons who
have recently lost friends are anxious
to have the graves examined. One
gentleman who lost his wife a few
weeks ago , and who refused to allow a
post mortem , although offered money
to do so , went to the. cemetery this
morning to see If the vandals
had been at work there. While the
body discovered in the room In Bell
man's block is not known to be that of
Chris. VOSB , jet the fact remains that
YOBS' body has been dragged from its
last resting place and is now bidden
somewhere about the city. It is very
likely that there will be sequel to the
affair in the course of a few days.
