LOST OFTHE DEEP Probable Fate of a Big Steamer Long Overdue. SEE OWNERS PEAR THE WOEST. She Carried a Crew of Fifty Men, and Had l!c«i<)es Twenty Passengers uud :i Vitlaable Cargo—The Miitmreckod Men UulltiTcU to Be In Mid Ocean In Open lioats. Boston, Dec. 5.—With a crew of 50 men, 20 passengers and a cargo valued at ?300,000, the steamship Londonian of the Wilson-Furness line is believed to have foundered in the middle 01 me ocean. The vessel is long overdue. She usually made the passage in 11 days and considerable anxiety had been expressed by the agents of the vessel when she was not reported this week. The Londonian was built at Glasgow in 1895. She is a four-masted steel vessel of 5,532 tons gross. Her dimensions were: Length, 450 feet; breadth of beam, 49.1 feet. Agent Burnett of the line to which the steamer belonged, says: "We have received only the same news that has come to the newspapers and we have no reason to believe other than that the ship is lost. We havs no list here of the officers or of the cre^', as all those matters were booked across, but we believe that the Lon- donian carried a crew, including officers and men, of about 50, and tht.e were also 20 cattlemen aboard. From the report I should judge that the men had got themselves off in boats, a"d they, or at least some of them, may be alive yet." WATERY GRAVES Found In Micl-()ce»n by the Crew of a Dru-rtfd Ship. New Yor,c, Dec. 5.—A dismantled schooner o" 700 tons flying signals of distress was sighted in mid-ocean during the height of a hurricane on Nov. £8 by the Nova Scotian schooner >,al- leda, which has just arrived in port. It was nearly dark at the time and her crew could be seen on the decks gesticulating frantically for assistance. The Walleda bore down upon the stranger and got close under her lee and hailed her. They shouted that the vessel was sinking and asked to be taken off. The captain informed them that his boats were stove and useless. They said they would come to the Walleda in their own boats. During this, time the Walleda laid to, but found she wr.s rapidly drifting to the leeward, then went about on the other tack, and afur several tacks managed to cross the bow of the wreck acd again drifted down to leeward position. The Walle- da hailed again but got no answer, la the meantime another three-masted schooner came to her assistance and assumed a position to the windward of the wreck. Both of them stood by until daylight. When morning broke the wreck was seen to be deserted and the boats gone. It is supposed that the unfortunate men had attempted to launch their boat during the night, which capsized and all hands were lost. Vessel Uurns at Sea. New York, Dec. 5.—The German steamer Daiecarlia, from Rio Janeiro, which arrived here, when in latitude 37.46, longitude 70.52, came alongside of a ship ablaze from the stern to the foremast, while a large yellow fuu- nelled German steamship was standing in near the naming, pitching wreck. Nobody could be seen on the decks of the burning vensel, nor were there any boats struggling amid the waves, so it is probable that the crew were rescued by the steamship which was waiting to note the end. fir^'uirt Ivants to Know. Paris, Dec. 5.—Colonel Picquart, now In custody and awaiting trial on a charge of having communicated to his counsel documents that had come into his possession in the military department of secret service, has applied to the court of cassation now engaged with the Dreyfus affair, to declare whether he is amenable to military or tivil jurisdiction. His application is based upon various articles in the coje o'. criminal nrocedure.

LOSS IS MORE THAW A MILLION. tn the Tenth of a Gnle, Firemon Fiercely Fi«;lic Flaine/i Which Devour Two Palatinl Structures mid IJmlly I)aiiia;-e tho Costly Borne of the Postal Telegraph Company. New York, Dec. 5.—In a blinding fain storm the massive block of buildings on Broadway, numbers 253 to 259, and included between Murray and Warren streets, was almost totally destroyed by fire. Within three hours more than a million dollars worth of property was destroyed. The fire began in the five story brick building occupied by the men's furnishing firm of Rogers, Peet & Company, on tno southwest corner of Broadway and Warren streets. Adjoining the Rogers, Peet building and south of it was the magnificent white building of the Home Life Insurance company, and next to this was the brown stone building of the Postal Telegraph company, erected at the cost of millions only a few years ago. The fire started in the basement of the building occupied by Rogers, Peet & Company, clothiers, about 9:30 o'clock. Two policemen standing within half a block of Warren street heard a loud explosion and a moment later saw a thin line of smoke curling up from the side of the Rogers building. At that time the rain was falling in torrents and the wind blew a gale. An alarm was sent in, but before the first engine turned into Broadway the basement was a roaring furnace, with great flames bursting through the floors above and rushing fiercely to the roof. Within ten minutes five alarms had been sent in, bringing engine after engine to the scene. By 10 o'clock, so rapidly and fiercely did the flames make progress, that there was nothing but the shell of the Rogers, Peet building left with mountains of flame roaring a hundred feet in the air and encircling the adjoining structure, the Home Life Insurance company's building. In the blinding rain the firemen worked, stretching the black and slippery lines of hose through the building, fighting the flames from every side. Soon a great wave of fire swept across Warren street and caught the United States Life Insurance company's building at the northwest corner of Broadway. The woodwork on a dozen windows was afire in a moment and from that time on several streams were played on this building to save it from destruction. When the Warren street wall of the Rogers, Peet & Company's building fell at 10: .10 o'clock a dozen firemen were directly beneath. Several of the men were struck by bricks, but none was more than slightly injured. Acting Ch'.jf Perle fell but was dragged to safety by some of his men. Devoured u Skyscraper. Just before 11 o'clock the Home Life Insurance company's building, 16 stories high, Broadway, caught fire. The firemen already had their lines in this building up ^o the seventh floor. They were greatly handicapped by the many stories. Flrmes had eaten their way through the side wall in many places and the hugh white structure burned fiercely. The elevators made trips up and down until the men running the cages were compelled to flee for their lives, and in this way many of the effects of the offices were saved. The three top floors were on fire almost simultaneously from the beginning. The smoke was dense. Flames shot high above the roof and over the massive brown stone Postal building on the corner below. All the operators of the Postal luilding and every body at 'Uhe jfcealth (s indicated by its condition. When the natural secretions decrease; e when the hair becomes dry, splits at the ends and comes out in combing; when the gloss disappears and the hair becomes gray or faded, the ill health of the hair is indicated. The success of AVER'S HAIR 'DIGOR is due to if-" fact that it restores the hair-producing organs to their natural "vigor. It encourages and promotes the secretions of the hair follicles, and thus gray or faded hair regains its original color, new grcnvth begins, and lost lus- tre ts restored. ers for fifteen years. Itcausos the hair to keep its natural color aiu! i:;u pusitivecure for baldness." — T. B. \VEYANT, Weyant, Pa. work In the structure had Dees ordered out of this building long before. Desperate efforts were being made to save It. The Interior of the Home Life Insurance building was by this time a furnace. F'-Qrn the windows of the six or eight upper stories the flames were pouring in masses. Tn the rear nine stories w&re afire and the fire department, so far as this portion of the building was concerned, was abso- lutftly powerless. At 11:15 i.he Postal building of 14 stories caught fire. Chief Bonner,'who had chargr of the firemen, took the elevator aM went to the roof to give personal directions. At this time thei 3 were a few operators who had ignored the orders of the fire chief, two or three clerks and a few boys at work in the building In the stifling smoke, and messages were sent until the flames came and all were forced to rush for their lives. The unsent messages were left at the telegraph keys. Chief Bonner had under his direction all the engines stationed in fire houses below Twenty-third street. In addition five hook and ladder companies, including water towers, were at the Kcene. M~st of the men worked In the lower parts of the building to savo adjoining buildings. Only a few gangs were with tlie fire chief on the top of the Postal building. They fought with all their strength to keep the flames back. But notwithstanding all their efforts, three floors of this building were partially destroyed. The fire started from three explosions. What caused the explosions no one knows. The firemen could not find out. They thought gas had escaped In some manner in the basement and so resulted in explosion and fire. The Postal Telegraph company officials said that all 'heir wires had been burned out and that they had no connections from their building. NATIONAL BANKS. tVhat tlie Comptroller of the Treasury Snj-8 of Them In His Report. Washington, Dec. 5.—The annual report of Charles G. Dawes, comptroller of the currency, for the year ended Oct. 31, 1898, has been sent to congress. With respect to the condition of national banks during the year, as shown by the five reports required from the banks, the comptroller says: Notwithstanding that the number cf banks in operation on Sept. 20, 1S9S, is less than at any date of report since Dec. 19, 1890, the amount of individual deposits, loans and iV.acounts, and total resources it, greater than at any time during the existence of the national banking system. On Sept. 20, for the first time, the aggregate resources reached and exceeded the four-bUiion- dollar mark, the increase since Oct. 5, 1897, being $298,377,337.16. A comparison of the last returns with those of Oct. 5, 1897, indicates an increase during the year of $104,952,189.74 in loans and discounts; $79,194,380 in government securities on deposit with L ^e treasurer of the United States to secure circulating notes and public deposits and the amount held by the banks; $57,304,827.34 in specie and legal tenders. The reduction of $25,465,000 in the amount of United States certificates of deposit for legal tenders results in a net increase of lawful money of $31,839,827.34. On Oct. 5, 1897, the deposits aggregated $1,853,349,128.50, and on Sept. 20, 1898, $2,031,454,540.29, the increase being $178,105,411.79. The balance due other banks and banker 1 : shows an increase of $52,627,3SS.^J ard United States deposits of $59,023,019.27. The comptroller states that he does not review in their details the plans for the modification of the currency and banking systems, which are now the subject of economic and general discussion throughout the country, but confines his disc'ussion to the general principles underlying all of them, because they seem to ignore the interests of bank depositors, with whose protection the comptroller Is peculiarly charged. »-.«&.,u «ii n oodOOl xtlioin.

THE NEW WAY. WOMEN used to think "female diseases " could only be treated after "local examinations" by physicians. Dread of such treatment kept thousands of modest women silent about their suffering. The in_ troduction of V/ine of Cardul has now demonstrated that nine-tenths of all the cases of menstrual disorders do not require a physician's attention at all. The simple, pure taken Jn the privacy of a woman's own hon»« insures quick relief and speedy cure. Women need not hesitate now. Wine of Cardui requires no humiliating examinations for its adoption. It cures any disease that comes undei the head of "female troubles"—disordered menses, falling of tho womb, "whites, "change of life. It makes women beautiful by making them WfiH It keeps them young by keeping them healthy. $1.00 at the drug store.
