Shehad foundered on her way to Calcutta,and -Aleck Fanshawe was on board as su percargo. ^"It isn't as though Squire Fanshawe hadn't other sons," commiserated a neighbor, when the blinds were pulled 'down and crape tied on the knocker •at the* big stone mansion,and prayers were offered in church for the bereaved family and friends. Everybody in town, so to speak, turned out "to church on that September morning to see how the family ook it and to be able to criticise the iuneral sermon.

About quarter past nine yesterday ., morning flames wore seen issuing from the engine room of the Jamestown brew­ ery, by M. S. Pettey. a resident of the vicinity. He immediately gave the alarm and in a"few moments the tire bells were ringing and the fire company on the double quick with the apparatus.

I THRKE-FINGEBED JOHNNY. BY W. WHITWOBTH. When he first came into Whitbeck's organ factory he was one of the oddest looking young chaps I ever saw. Not that I knew what made him so out of the common run. It seemed, in a sort of way, to be all over him. At the time I thought there was a cast in one of his eyes. But in reality there wasn't. His light-colored hair grew in rough tufts, sticking up in the odd­ est manner and he had a shambling, loose-put-together appearance, a good deal as if it would be the easiest thing in the world to disjoint himself and set the separate pieces to one side without the least trouble or incon­ venience. But the oddest thing of all waB Johnny's—Johnny Liebenthal was his right name, but he was called just Johnny—the oddest thing about him was his laugh. He seemed to laugh all on one side of his face. To save my neck I couldn't have told why. Then, he had only three fingures—or rather, two fingers and a thumb—on his left hand. The middle fingers had been ...
