An Incendiary's Worn.
The grocery , saloon and residence of
Philip Koch , at the southwest corner
10th and Castelar streets , Bowery Hil' ,
ware last night burned to the ground.
The fire was well advanced when the
engineers of the Union Pacific switch
engines in the Tenth street yards saw
the glare , and gave the alarm by
sounding their whistles and ringirg
their bells. Fire engines No. 2 and
3 and the hooks responded , going
down as for as the depot , but owing
to the distance , and the steep and
slippery roads , not any further.
This is the third time within a few
years that Mr. Koch has been burned
out , and indications all point
to the hand of an incendiary. The
house was in the form of a T , thi
top of whicu , the saloon and grocery ,
faced the rend , cud was 30 by 45 feet
in size , while the wing was 18 by 24 ,
and etill to the rear of this stood the
sameer kitchen , attached to the
tiouee , b\it not in nse at this sessar.
The family hud retired , and wore all
asleepwhen Mr. Koch was awakened bj
the barking of a little di'g. He wenl
out , but BIW nothing. A second time
the dog's barliiog called him out , MIC
this time he caw a email flame in thi
summer kitchen , which a momeni
later burst forth and spread with won *
derfnl rapidity to all portion ; of the
building. The [ family , who cccu
pied the wing , wcra awakened < ind es
capcd by an east , side door. Neigh
bora came to their assistance and <
small portion of the contents of thi
housewere , sa\e < 3. The flames , fannei
by a strong wind soon lev
elled the entire structure t <
the ground , no resistance boh f
possible. The family found refuge ii
a > < maU building adjoining the house
which escaped destruction , when
they are domiciled to-day. In addi
tion to the house , ealoon fixtures am
furniture a larce amctlnt of meats am
groceries , including seventy bushel
of potatoes , all stored in the cell ir
was a total loss , tha estimated amnun
of which is § 1,800 Fortunate ? :
there was no house within fifty yard
of Mr. Koch'e , and the hro was con
fined to the one piece of property
All the facts in the caee indicate tha
an incendiary fired the building.

and uniqueness of the designs and n
once selected a pair which were als
laid aside for her. The perfume

Mrs. 0. B. Rustln is the able chief
executive officer. Every available
portion of the largo room was filled
with booths contructed and decorat
ed to the very beat advantage and pre
sided over by a bevy of charming
young ladies. Brilliantly lighted ,
glowing with colors from the thous
ands ? of fancy articles displayed for
sale , fra ant with the breath of fresh
flowers and melodious with the hum
of voices and the munificent mu-
aic of the Union Pacific band ,
the visitor could imagine himself on
an enchanted ground. Ejpecially
complete and interesting was the de
partment of useful articles , all of
which werd manufactured within the
space of four weeks by the ladies of
the committee. To encircle the room
was to meet rare surprises on every
land. A sypsy fortune-teller , a mar

A Fatal Plunge.
Yesterday a singular accident
occurred on the ice , below the U. P.
bridge , which resulted In the drown
lug of a team and the loss of the wagon
gen to which they wera attached. A
number of men and teams are en.
gaged in hauling and storing Ice from
that part of the Missouri , and during
the forenpon as ope of the teams , with
an empty wagon , was crossing the Ice ,
a wheel went into a rut or hele in the
frozen surface and threw the driver
off. The frightened team then ran
away and directed their course-down
stream to the edge of the Ice field , at
the rata of fifteen or twenty miles an
hour. Off this edge theyplunged at
full speed and the murky waters of the
big muddy closed ovdr them forever.
We were unable to obtain the name of
the owner of the team.

A .Grave Joke ,
Late one night last week as a police
officer , who has been on the force less
than a year , was wending his vay
homeward ho overheard men talking
in an alley just ahead of him.
The "peeler" was on the alert in an
instant , and cautiously made his way
, o the entrance of the alley , and ac
.benight was dark easily crept with-
n hearing distance. The valiant
guardian of the peace soon heard
enough to satisfy him that on the
night following a body was to be
snatched from what was supposed to
30 its last resting place and brought
o the city , and left at a room already
prepared. After hearing this the
officer cautiously made his way to the
street and hurried homeward.
Next day he cdnfided the secret tt
a brother cop , and it was arranged
that the two ehonld proceed with ar
expressman and wa-.on to the city oJ
the dead and capture the exhumers
Accordingly a team wag engaged , am
as the night was favorable they start
ed about eleven o'clock. The gallan
officers reached Prospect Hill came
toryj and driving to a designated spo
stopped the team arid alighfod , order
ing the driver to remain wherahe wai
tint 1 further orders.
But we mudl liow le'ava our friendi
to the tender mercies of a grave yard
and the relentless fury of & nort !
wind for a while , and return to thi
city. On the day preceding the nigh
on which the two policemen ! visito <
the cemetary , a detective bad been in
formed that a gang of professiona
body snatchers were in our mldat
and that that night a body would b
taken from tbo cemetery , by the sami
parties who had furnished the "stltl1
tor the Medical Institute. The de
bectivo having thus obtained a clew
prepared to follow it up at once , am
before night had engaged two reliabli
men , with whom three hours nfte
dark ho proceeded to the burying
ground. They arrived in duo timi
and stationed themselves in differon
place ? , and awaited developments
They were fast becoming doubtful am
Impatient when the express wagoi
stopped as described above.
The two policemen , after recon
noitering , climbed over the fence am
stopped again to take in tha surround
ga. They were holding a whisperec
con&ulcation , wnon in the darknes
near them , fhey discovered the fern
of a man not more than half a ro <
distant , slowly moving away. Wha
to do they did not know , but it wa
evident that if anything was to b <
done it must be done quickly , or th
game would vanish in the gloom am
be out of their reach. At a givei
signal they bounded simuHaneonal ;
upon their victim and pinned him t
the ground. By placing the muzzl
of a revolver to hi ) temple they eaail ;
persuaded him to keep quiet and wer
about to manacle him when two othe
actors put in an appearance and a gen
eral hand to hand encounter ensued
Billies , boots and fistn were free !
used , but things soon became so bad
ly mixed that it was dangerous t
continue the tightfor every man look
ed the same and foe rould not be die
tingnished from friend. Sadden !
some one yelled. "Where's your lac
tern why don't you use It ? "
Hostilities suddenly ceased , and a ]
at once tour dark lanterns flashed up
on the scene of battle and five pistol
came to view , held by determine
hinds. Then'ihere was an awful still
ness followed by a season of unintei
rnptod swearing. Tlie. two officei
found that they had been poundin
cich other over the heads , and the d
tective saw that one of his select me
had been kicking him in the rib
while the other .had been trying t
It took fifteen minutes to espial
matters , but at last they came to a
understanding , and it was agreed tha
each one should have a ban
in essassinating the villain who ha
perpetrated the joke , should he eve
be found ; and it was further agree
that each of the five victims shoul
