J.,  .ai. -1 o'clock this  afternoon.     In  less than 15 minutes   tho  ilames  had  spread   ovei-  an   area of  a  }-]warier of a mile, extending outward from the  shore  lino  from  ���l.he bulkheads from 000  fo   1000  feet away and had  caught' four  great, ocean liners and a dozen or  ���more smaller haVbor craft in its  ���grasp. . .

The   sii nation    was  "desperate,     and'   h.e     doubted  whether the ministers could hold  out 24 hours longer, ��as  ho  and  the   empress   could   not   longer  'give protection.

The  German legation and six other buildings were burned, and a number  . of.servants of the legations killed their bodies thrown   into  the  flames.     Official confirmation of  this ghastly business has created  the' utmost consternation among  the consul generals of  the powers,   who expressed  fears that  war would  be declared against  the  ���Pekin 'government.      The  consuls entertain little hope that  any foreigners are left  alive  in  the capital.

A comnion error indulged in
by the prospector, the expert
miner and the scientific mining
expert, 'U thai in their own ex-"
periences in and observation of
great mine.-, they create an ideal
mine to which they expect all
other inine> to conform. If the
prospector has t>uado a lucky
strike in a contact vein, then
ever afterwards he is prone to
overlook promising prospects in
other formation.-., ot'ttime-. escaping a fortune by expecting
nature to conform to his idea of
what a mine should be.
Xot many year* ago Professor
Walton, of London,  than   wljom

visited Montana. wa> sho,wn

A curiou.-, accident occurred at
-Moulder, Col The b ake on a
tank car loaded witli sulphuric
acid refused to work, and the car
went down the grade. Whistle.-,

the train in time to shunt it onto
a sidetrack. The tank car struck
a box car loaded with household
goods; the tank.car which contained about l,5(i(i gallons of
acid,   slid   oft'   the   platform  car
and was telescoped into the box
ii i
car. The acid began to escape
aud ruined the furniture and
made a great pool in the yard;
temporarily preventing the passing of teams to "obtain freight.'
The loss amounted to several
thousand dollar^ says the Kail-
