ILLINO STATE'S OLDEST COURT HOUSE. Sliatorlcal Strncture at Bloomlngton Destroyed by Fire. Bloomington's oldest building and the .oldest court house in Illinois was destroyed by fire the other day. The old structure had not been in use for the last ten jears. Although an effort has been .-made to keep tramps and others from occupying the structure, it is presumed tthat some followers of a street carnival, .which had been in the city, occupied the ;j)lace and carelessly set it on fire. The 'disposition of the ancient structure has been a subject for discussion during the last year, but no action had been taken. TbVbuildiug was the lirst house erected :in Bloomiugton, the date of its construc--ition being 1831.

"Now" is the crisis of man's circumtance His life, his nil; The trial of his fortitude his chance To rise or fall. The column waits, the old flog Coats on high But soon the sun Will count a day lost, and in sadness sigh, "No battle won." The potter's clay is in thy hands to mold An angel's face Why leave it, idly, to turn crude and cold, And lose its grace?
