DR, HE WAS RELEASED. Joir-pli Thur»ion, a Royal Center Boy, Will Not be Kept In Jill. A sixteen year old Royal c'onter boy, Joseph Thurston, was indicted by the grand jury at its recent session for an alleged assault with murderous intent on Joseph Robbies of the same town. Bailiff Batty arrested the young mao Thursday and yesterday he was for a short time an Inmate of tbe county jail. He was released yesterday on his own recognizance and at once went home with his father. Young Thureton is said to be an intelligent young man, and as his guilt is not thought to be clearly established, and no difficulty ia anticipated in finding him when he is wanted, his release was easily brought about. Thurstoa was employed as a runner for one of the Royal Center hotels bdtween which exists a little rivalry for trade. Joseph Robbins, the rival runner, wtis one night struck on the head by a enow ball containing a heavy stone, and he alleges that young Thurston threw the missile. Robbins claims he was knocked senseless by the ball, and suffered for some time from the effects of the blow. THE GOOD TEMPLARS. The Had Weather Coin the Attendance I>uwn toTwcuiy-flve Delegates. In spite of the fact that the district meeting of the Good Templars is being held during the worst weather of the year, all of the five counties are represented and there Is a strong interest shown in the sessions. There are twenty-five delegates with their wives in attendance from out of town, and the local Templars are showing their hospitality to the visitors in every way. The public meeting announced for last nlghtat the Ninth street Christian church was not held because of the fact that the building could not be warmed. This forenoon at the council chamber, an open session of the district meeting will be held, and the last session will convene this afternoon. WILL HATE TIMETOTHISK. At 10:40 last night a son of L. Sol- mano, who keeps ibe fruit store on Pearl and Broadway, stepped out ai ,he from door of that establishment ad at once observed a dense volume of smoke issuing from Jos, Grace's clothing-store No. 426 Broadway, ia the Justice block, otxt door to the room in which C V. Kenberger, the baker was quartered until a fire, breaking out almost at the eama hour of the night, a few weeks ago, d-ostroyed his stock. An alarm was turned in from tbe corner of Broadway and Fourth street, and at 10:45 the department was hard at work fighting tbe stubborn flames that burst in considerable strength and volume from the rear ol the Store room. A blinding smoke Issued from tbe front of the building, and from the sidewalk only a red glare could be seen at times as the clouds lifted. The firemen who handled the nozzle on the interior of the building could only get their breath by crawling with their faces close to the floor, but they fought the enemy in a most determined way, and in a short time had it under complete control. A lot of burning garments were car rled : out from time to \ time and' the flames extinguished. Considerable water wae used in putting down the fire in the Grace establishment, and it is feared the stock Is badly damaged by smoke and water besides a loss that is by no means small resulting from the blaze. Mr. Grace could make no estimate of of his loss last night, but it will probably not fall below $1,000. The steel celling of the room protected the upper part of the building. Judge D, P. Baldwin's office is above the room in which the fire was located, The third floor ia occupied by a part of Craig's overall factory. Joseph Grace has |6,000 insurance on his stock. NOTES. The firemen Buffered intensely from the cold. Grace's stock was damaged to the extent of $200 in the Renberger fire two weeks ago. The small crowd of people who ventured out to see the fire were obliged to take violeat exercise to keep warm. Judge D.

At the assembly hall of the high school yesterday afternoon, Mrs. Dillie on behalf of the Ladles of the 6. A. R. presented the flag in a short and most appropriate epeech. Q. A.

Th» French Cupltal i ouUl Not AgKln U« Should the fortunes of war ever again expose the city of Paris to the hardship of a sioge the besieger would find the reduction of the French capital to be a far more difficult undertaking than did the German armies in the winter of 1S70-71. Lt m:iy, according 1 to the Philadelphia Record, be doubted whether the city could ever ag-ain be compelled to capitulate. The fall of Paris, as is well known, was not accomplished by the German siege batteries, but the city was starved into submission. A recurrence of such an emergency is supposed to have been made practically impossible by the development of the art of preserving- and compressing a great variety of nutritious foods into the smallest possible space. Thus, for example, forty thousand rations of preserved vegetables can be placed in a cubic space measuring only forty inches each way, and millions of the rations, tog-ether with solid soups and preserved meats, ara constantly kept ready for the eventual necessity of the military provisioning- of Paris. An enormous stock of Hour and biscuits is always maintained by the war department, while the introduction of .compressed fodder rind the silo "system have facilitated the storage of suflicicnt food for the horses required by the cavalry as ivell as by the omnibus and street railway companies. One of the gravest causes of distress during the last siege of Paris was the scarcity and poor quality of milk. Such quantities of this indispensable article ns could then be procured wore worth their weight in gold, and the mortality among infants resulting from their deprivation of this necessary food reached a frightful rate. In the next siege, however, milk will not only be plentiful, but very good, thanks to Dr. Ante- fage's -process of "pasteurizing" milk, which has been adopted by the French- government, and by which milk can be preserved almost indefinitely absolutely pure and unaltered. Twenty years a.go the art of preserving meat by means of cold storage was in its infancy, but the French KOvern- ment lias fully availed itself of every improvement that has been made in this direction, and at the first sign of impending danger the authorities would be prepared to store hundreds of thousands of carcasses of beevus and mutton. The military magazines are always kept filled, but at the approacl of war the numerous warehouses ant buildings which have beon indicated for the purpose and prepared for the 8toro.ge of provisions would be imme diately brought- into' requisition. By means of the Fixary process drcssec beef and other meats can be kep' sweet and fresh for many mouths, anc by new chemical methods tbe stor- ag-e rooms can be kept cool without the use of ice, In its careful preparation for the dire emergency of hostile attack the French government seems to have overlooked nothing; even coal, wood, petroleum, chemicals and a thousand other things have been provided in ample quantities. It seems almost impossible to believe that any future siege of Paris could be prolonged until the war department should have exhausted its fabulous accumulations of provisions, which are constantly maintained at their proper level by renewals of stock as fast as they are used up.
