The Flames Spread Rapidly Until a Vast Area Is Burned Ov»r, De• stroying 140 Building!. L08B, 1500,000. BOSTON. May 10.—A cigarette butt thrown into a pile of waste paper under the "bleachers," or twonty-five- cent seats, iu the Boston baseball grounds Tuesday afternoon started a flro which destroyed more than 140 buildings occupying about sixteen acres of land in the crowded tenement house section of the south end. The money loss is 1500,000, and in all other respects the conflagration is the most terrible that Boston has seen since fifty acres were burned over in 1873, for more than 600 families are homeless, and they are the kind of families who soldom indulge in the luxury of fire insurance. Forinni Who Were Hurt. The injured are: Mlcbaol Woloh, lumped 30 foot from a root and was Internally Injured; John Rowley, overcome by smoke, will He; WiMom H. Abern, Jumped from n root, onlile broken; WllHiun auteculn. apoplexy; Lieut Sawyer, enftlno company No. 8.1. struelt by fulling wall, may die; John T, Kftiio, imornally Injured; An.y Lapp, badly burnod; Jivmes T. Fitzgerald, Qreman, bacllv out Ntart of the Blmc, The third Innlnf? ol the game had been half finished and Baltimore was just golnpr to the bat when the fire was discovered. Immediately them was a scattering of the 3,500 spectators, and while a few men ripped u>p seats and tried to stamp out the flames, the rest made a rush for the (fates. A few buckets of water would at this stage have quenched the fire and prevented the disaster which followed, but there was no water within reach. The flames leaped fiercely up the scantlings and through the rows of seats, which wore dry us tinder, owing to the absence of rain for a couple ol weeks, and fanned by a strong southeast wind, they consumed fence and bleachers and presently the grand stand .was fired and burnod in a furious manner. Almost adjoining the baseball grounds was a populous section devoted to tenements and homes of the poorer class and 'many small stores of a similar character. Ita ProfrresH. After burning all the buildings on Berlin street between Walpole and the end of Columbus avenue, three blocks, the fire swept west to the grand stand of the baseball grounds, leveled that to the ground, went south to a large apartment hotel on Walpole street and east toward Treraont street. The latter was occupied by brick and wooden buildings, a magnificent public schoolhoune standing on the corner of Walpole and • Tremont streets. 1 The bric!c buildings were as little able to withstand the fierce flames as the wooden buildings had proved to bo, and soon sank- to the ground. Hotel* Are liurneil. East of Tremont street and parallel with it is Cabot street. The llames went on toward this, sweeping down every building 1 before it, and then spread toward the south ulongTremont street, licking up a number of magnificent new apartment hotels. The district burned out extends from Burke street on th« north to Sarsfield street on the south, the New York, New Haveii & Hartford tracks ,<on the west to Warwick street oo the east All the buildings on the following 1 entire streets are in ashes: The Uurncd UUrrtct. Burke, Coventry, Walpole, Sarsfleld, all parallel; Berlin street, four blocks on each side of Tremont street, three blocks on each side of Cabot street, throe blocks on the west aide of Warwick street and two blocks on the north side of Newburn street Besides the Hotel Walpole two apartment houses on Sterling street were burned, three on Western street, two on Hammond park, two on Windsor street and all of those on Yendlay place. O This district was one of the most thiakly populated in the city and most of the families are in very poor circumstances. At the best estimate th«re are 8,500 persons without homes and their household effects are In ashes. The LOHOB. The financial loss is bard to estimate, but will reach probably 8500,000, This small amount i» accounted for by the lact that dozens of tha wooden tener ments were of little value. The baseball grand stand was valued at $75,000; the insurance is 140,000. The Walpole schoolhouse was valued at 180,000; insured. The Hotel Walpole and mostof the brick apartment houses burned were insured and were worth from »8,000 to $30,000 each. Wanti to Withdraw.

Children have a right to justice, and they almost never get it There was once a little girl who always had to choose between butter and molasses on her griddle cakes, while her parents had both. A trifle—yes, of course, but not to that child; it rankled all her life long; the injustice of it struck her afresh every day that came, and no love nor attention, which her parents lavished on her in other ways ever wiped out that memory. They arc expected to show sclf-qon- trol that would honor a mature person. They sit at a table loaded with dainties, and must eat uninviting 1 plain food, seldom varied and served in a not very tempting manner. They are called greedy if they beg for what every one around them is eating; und if they do not finish all on their plates, in many cases tho cold, unappetizing mess is served them ufrain "for discipline anil to teach them not to be greedy." .lust try that once on a grown person. They have a right to their own little persons, and are they not constantly taken up, kissed and tossed around by people whom they intensely dislike and whose touch is hateful to them? These are only a few of the wrong-s children suiter every day and all day, and how any child grows up swect-natured is a question not easily answered. Tha greater rights, such as the right to a healthy body, a clear mind and a proper start in life are subjects for a. deeper discussion than I dare trust myself to enter upon; but certainly a child has a right to the same consideration a grown person would demand, and certainly no duty a child can owe a parent is equal to that the parent owes a child which was brought into this world not of its own volition, forced to grow up, flung into the battle of life, and handicapped with the results of the mistakes aud misdeeds of two or three generations.—Donahue's Magazine. —On the arrival of an emigrant ship some years ago, when the North Carolina lay off the Battery, an Irishman, hearing the g-un fired at sunset, inquired of one of tho sailors what it meant "What's that? Why, that's sunset," was the contemptuous reply. "Sunset!" Paddy exclaimed with distended eyes; "sunset! and does the sun go down in this country with sich a clap as that?"
