Eyes of all Com
"Oh rich and rare are the jewels
there" sang the oriental prince to
whom "the power of the ring" opened
ut > all treasuries of the earth. He
then filled his pockets , hat and hand
kerchief with tha best ho could get
and left n rich man. Now if that same
young prince were alive to-day he
wonld daily bo found at the Pioneer
Drug Store of Ish & McMahon , 1321
F.irnham street , selecting from the
most complete and mammoth stock
west tf the Mississippi , cases for his
jewels and other" appropriate articles
to go with them.
A reporter of THE BEE examined
their magnificant stock Friday
evening and like the glories
of King Solomon , found lhat the half
had not been told. A row of cases
about the front of the room , several
upright cases and the spacious show
windows , all filled with a choice a-
sortment of ivory , celluloid , Russia
leather and hand-painted silk holiday
goods and elegant cut-glass bottles
met the view oc every side , the goods
darzlirg in their rich material and su
perb design and make. Unlike the
stocks too frequently put upon the
market , this one is composed entirely
i f novelties in goods , all of new designs
signs , and put on the market this
season for the first time. While of
the finest materials , they are useful in
character , substantially made and are
artistic in decoration throughout.
The jewel caeca , odor boxes , hand
kerchief and glove boxes and combi
nation toilet cases are of Russia
leather , lined wich silk of the loveliest
shades , with hand painted designs of
zreat beauty npon many of them.
Their elegance and perfestion wonld
baffle the pen to describe. The toilet
cases contain combs , brushes and mir
rors of solid ivory nd bevelled French
plato glass. Another style contain
articles of cold and silver in place of
ivory , but with the same rich mirrors.
The latter are BO new that we believe
they cannot be duplicated in the

In celluloid sats the Pioneer Drug
Store distances all competitors , both
for size and elegance of their assort
ment. The ladies' and gents' toilet
esses are the most complete articles
of the kind manufactured , are of as
magnificent finish as those containing
the ivory sets , and cin't be equalled
anywhere in the city. These cases
are of both square and upright con
struction , the latter opening by a
spring , and' resembling a tiny ward
robe. The odor cases of "old gold , '
attract the eyes of the fair sex , and
are supplemented by fancy card and
letter cases , writing desks , col
lar and cuff boxes and com
bination work-boxes and jewel
cases , all of the same elaborate and
costly manufacture described above.

we learn that his royal highness ,

and that he will do himself the pleas

Friday's BEE contained a com
municatiop. referring to the agency o
the Ballet & Davis pianos in this city
and endeavoring to place me in ; v false
position before the pablic. In Sep
lumber of the prestnt year I waa solic
ited by the general agent of the Hal
let & Davis factory , to take charge o
the agency for Omaha and Counci
Bluffa , and informed that I could hav
ai much further territory as I reqnir
ed. I had an established agency o
the Fisher , James & Holstrom , Chas
and Chickering pianos , but after con
siderable urging I consented to tak
two of the Hallet & Davis make
which were shipped to me from th
warerooms of the company on th
19th of October. These are now in
my store and for sale cheap. Under
date of November 24 , I received c
letter from Hallet & Davis informing
me that they had suddenly discovorec
that they had an agency in Omaha
after having urged me to take the !
pianos. They added that they were
in a bad fix through having forgotten
their so-called agency , but wrote , i
hp kicked too bad they would like m ;
orders yet. I had gone to some expense
pense in advertising my agency of the
Hallet & Davis piano before their las
communication , and this was done in
good faith. J. S. WRIGHT.

And a Growing Business
"Edholm & Erickson , " a name now
familiar to all ourcitz3ns and , in fact ,
to the state and the entire west a
name which , two short years ago , was
unknown even in thisimmediate vicin
ity. "How can it be possible , " the
question is asked , ' 'for a firm to be
come in so short a time so well known
and popular ? And , starting as these
gentlemen did on a small capital , in
fact almost nothing , how can it be
that they no * carry one of the largest
and best selected stock of jewelry in
the west , and are doing a manufactur
ing business unequaled , and never be
fore dreamed of this side of the eastern
chits ? " To start with.both gentlemen
thoroughly understood the business in
all its branches , and when it enlarged
to its present stupendous proportions ,
and they required additional assist
ance , the very best workmen in the
land were chosen to assist. The same
good judgment hos been exercised in
hireing all kinds of employees , pur
chasing goods and managing the busl
ness generally. Passing the estab
lishment , corner Fifteenth and Dodge
streets to-day , a BEE reporter enterec
and was astonished at the elegant ,
costly and unique patterns of the dif
ferent wares , especially the large array
of holiday goods. No house in the
city has taken more pains to suit the
refined tastes of our citizens ,
and we can truthfully say thai
the firm is being deservedly repaid
for their trouble , judging from the
stream of customers passing in anc
out of their doors. Want of time anc
space will not permit of our making a
sufficient mention of the business , but
we will eay in conclusion that pur
chasers will find everything there iu

The Third Big Fire Within
the Radius of a Block
About the Old Grand
Qentral ,
Farnam Street the Object of
the Fire Fiend's Fury.
About midnight Saturday night , a
fire was discovered in the rear ot
D& Great & Co.'a hat stare , 1316 Farn-
am street , just opposite the scene of
the Iler-Colliua conflagration of Tues
day night.
When first seen it was not nix foot
in diameter , and could have been put
out with a few buckets of water had
they been at hand. Box 12 failing to
work , the Lutheran ehucch bell was
rung and an alarm put in to No. 3's
house by telephone , bringing out the
department promptly , in full force.
The fire spread rapidly , and attacking
the walls between De Groat's and
Lang's shoe store , climbed into tno
second story and became difficult to
handle. The burning building was
flanked on one side by John Baumer's
jewelry store , and on the other by
Lang's , both of frame , like itself , and
the whole block was threatened with
destruction , the danger only being
lessened by the entire absence of any
breeze whatever. Soon three streams
were turned on the flames , which
burned fiercely in the rear portion and
roof , and were not conquered until
holes were cut through the roof and
the building deluged with water from
top to bottom.
It was impossible to save any of
De Groat's stock of hats , caps and
furs , or of Lang's boots and shoes ,
from the fact that to open the doors
would have created a draught through
the building that would have en
dangered the entire row. The doors
were therefore kept closed , and the
damage from water was the heaviest
of all. Mr. Werz's'dentistroomsover
the shoo store , were howaver , quickly
emptied of their furniture , which was
piled at the corner of 14th and
The most deplorable loss of
all , was that involving Frank Cur
rier's photograph gallery , and this is
one which cannot be estimated in dollars
lars and cents. Mr. Currier slept in
the front room , and awoke to find
himself suffocating from smoke and
escape possible only by immediate
flight. The relentless axes cut
through the ceiling and valuable neg
atives , magnificent'picturea and superb
arrangements generally , were flooded
with water , which stood three inches
deep on the carpeted floors , after
the fire had been got under control.
Among the negatives were those of
Judge Thurston s children and little
Gracie Atkinson , which were destroy
ed with the rest , and which a thous
and dollars would be no object iu re
placing. Mr. Currier has met with
considerable misfortune of late and
this was the crowning stroke , although
it will by no means be allowed to stop
hisj work long. The only portion
of bis stock saved was some of the
finest pictures , which decorated the
walls of the frontroom.
The fire was a peculiar one and
"would not down , " but when appar
ently subdued would burst forth with
renewed fury. A curious phenomena
was witnessed here and also at Tier's
fire , a reflection on the clouds of
smoke , high in mid air , hanging over
the block like a fire demon hovering
in sight of his prey and ready to
swoop down on it at any moment. A
beautiful sight was that of streams of
water occasionally shooting hundreds
of feet in the air , and , viewed altern
ately with the glare of the fire and
the bright moon upon it , resembling a
fountain of silver spray or ruby wine.
The firemen worked 4ike Trngans and
within an honr's time were playing
upon smouldering ] ruins , from which
the power of the fire fiend to harm had
Daylight revealed the sorry aspect
of the portion of Farnam street here
tofore reckoned as its greatest pride ,

tral been so often one of destruction
and danger.

The Threatened Conflagra
tion at the State
The Disaster Traced to the In
cendiary's Torch.
There baa been considerable excite
ment in town Saturday on the subject
of the Lincoln firo.which occurred'Frl-
day night , but which was not nearly BO
serious as was at first reported. The
particulars , as obtained from to-day's
Journal , are as follows :
At a quarter to one o'clock this
morning an alarm of fire
was sounded from the engine house ,
and very soon it WPS discovered that
the rear part of George Lee's building
was h.l flames. The blowing of the
whistles and rinsing of the bells served
to alarm the whole town , and In leas
than half an hour following the first
call a good share of the populace of
the city had gathered in front and in
the rear of the building , which was
rapidly giving way to the flames. For
Innately there was little or no wind
blowing , and the fire did not spread aa
it otherwise wonld , but on the other
hand it seemed almost im
possible to do anything to
break the force of the fire or
protect the adjoining buildings. The
main effort at first seemed to bo to
free the bcildings of goods and save
all that was possible within. The hook
and ladder company promptly res
ponded to the first alarm , and per
formed good service. The fire engine
did not reach the ground before the
building was half gone , but once there
and in operation , with the hose play
ing on the fire , the service rendered
was great. It wa thought at first
the engine would not be able to work ,
in consequence of a little mishap
which occurred early in the evening
when the department were brought
out on a false alarm. However , this
proved to be a mistake. The water
supply was good , and the gallant fire
men worked bravely , several of them
risking their lives in their efforts to
rescue goods from the burning
buildings and stay the progress of the
The building occupied by George
Lee was used below for an auction ,
and store-room , and above for living
apartments. The building waa the
property of John Kelly , and we be-
lievd not insured. Mr. Leo carried
no insurance on his goods , and hia
loss ia estimated at from two to three
thousand dollars.
The building on the south was oc
cupied by Mr. Wm. McLaunhlin aa a
saloo.i and liquor store. By the ex
ertions of the firemen and others , a
greater part of his property waa saved.
The two-itory building occupied by
Dr. Childs aa a drug store below , and
above by Mr. Roberts as .m under
taker's eatabl ishment , was almost to
tally destroyed. A considerable
amount of the property of both the > e
gentlemen was saved. The building
was owned > y John Fitzgerald , and
was insured to the amount of $500 in
the Poenix fire insurance company ,
and $500 iu the Hartford.
By a great effort Lamborn block was
saved. The brick walls stood the
flames admirably. The damage was
slight , and covered by insurance in
the Home of New York , Hartford and
Phoenix Insurance companies. The
two buildings adjoining the one owned
by Mr. Fitzgerald on the outh , are
owned by Walxh and Putnam , and at
the first of these buildings the fire was
checked. The firemen at half past
two had succeeded in getting full
control of the fireand , at three o'clock ,
just before going to press , wore still
throwing water on the smouldering
It is understood later that Dr.
Ohilds saved about half his goodsand
the whole was covered by insurance.
The origin of the fire is unknown ,
but Mr. Lee , who had only just retir
ed when the alarm sounded , feela cer
tain that it was the work of an incen
diary. As to this we have no means
of knowing , and it wonld be difficult
to substantially make this assertion
good , or in fact account for the origin
of the fire in any other way , unless
we make it another case of spontan
eous combustion.
As there has for some time past
been a great deal of wrangling and
disputing among jewelers concerning
the price and quality of goods , I re
spectfully invite the public to call
and examine my display and see for
themselves. I would call especial at
tention to a splendid line of neck
chains , solid gold rings , watches ,
clocks , and a general stock of jewelry.
