HUNDEN   DESTROYED UY FIRE  The residence of Mr. D. IIlinden, with contents was almost totally destroyed by fire Christmas  night. Night watchman Jdcdellan  discovered the fire about a quarter  past nine and promptly gave the  alarm, which was quickly responded to by the firemen, who arrived  on the scene in a few minutes. It  could not have been more than ten  minutes from the sounding of the  alarm before a stream of water was  turned on the burning building,  wliich was soon under control, preventing the fire from spreading to  adjacent buildings. The fire is sup  posed to have started from the-kitchen stove, as it was the only one  .that.fii-o-was~in.w.heu-Mr.-Hnndeii-  and family left for the Christmas  entertainment in the Presbyterian  church. Wo are pleased to know  that both house aud furniture were  insured, which will in uomo degree  compensate Mr. Hunden and  family for their very serious loss  and inconvenience, especially at  this season of the year. We are  also sorry to hear of a considerable  monetary loss by tho fire, some  $'*Z*Q, or $300. being in a bureau  drawer. Strange to say, the drawer  that the money was in, was ouo of  others rescued from t'.ie burning  building, but the money was miss-  fog.

THE REAL STORY OF TH  RUSSIAN EMPRESS.  Kellogg Durlaud, who has spent  many months in Russia, is writing for Woman's Home Comvanion lhe life story of the Russian  Empress. In the December number of the mivgazino ho writes:  "Whon a certain Count Tolstoy  was Minister of Public Instruction he comes appealed to the Empress to aid him in extending the  educational advantages of the empire to the girls and youug women  ofthe country, (I have Count  Tolstoy's own '.permission to relate  this incident,)  "The IWitBa listened to the  Minister attentively uu he set forth  the needs of Russia in this direction, mid when he had concluded  she replied that she thought all  young girls should be taught to  sew, to care for their homes, in  short to uecome helpful wives and  good timtlierH, but ns for granting  them the privilege* of so called  'higher education', knowledge of  history, philosophy and thu science  ���������to this she was entirely opposed  'because theso studies, when offer*  ed to women, only resulted iu  such terrible times us Russia is  now passing through.'  "This is surely a reniurkable  tribute to tho women of Unaalti���������  the Ttfusitsu holding them renpou*  Bible for the great movement toward liberty as a remilt u{ thoir  eJucation uud culturei"  ������������@������������@iXf>*^^  Now Come and bee  What 1 Have Got !
