PRICE'S CREAM BAKING POWDER WORLD'S FA»R, CHICAGO, 1893 GREAT FIRE IN LONDON. Huge Blocks of Bnlldlngs are Blazing Fiercely. Fifteen Large Warehouses Destroyed «od tne Great London Postoffice in Danger ot Dee traction. Special to the Pharo*. London, Nov. 19th.—The most serious fire In recent, years Is now raging la several streets adjacent the general postofflce: the huge blocks of buildings are blazing fiercely and many houses have collapsed, fifteen warehouses being already de stroyed. Buildings are ablaze on both sides of the streets, preventing the firemen from reaching the burn Ing buildings. The fire has extended to wlthia 400 yards of the general postofflce, A northwesterly wind i? blowing, which tends to carry th flames In that direction. A serious panic prevails in the district sur rounding the burning section. SCRAPS OF JSEVYS Relating to tbe Railroads and Tbeir Employes. THE SAFETY APPLIANCE LAAT. On Dec. 1 the Interestate-com- merce Commission will give a hearing to the railroads that have petitioned for an extension of the time in which to equip their freight c»rs and locomotives with automatic brakes and car couplers under the law of 1893. The law with its penalties and fines Is to become operative Jan. 1, 1898, unless the commission excerises the authority granted to it by the law to give an extension of time. Monday was the last day for tbe reception of petitions for extension. The commission estimates that something less than 5 per cent, of ths railroads have complied fully with the provisions of the law. Tne New York Central and tbe Chicago, Burlington & Quincy are the only prominent systems thoroughly equipped, about 30 per cent of the other roads have applied tor an extension, and the remainder, probably 600 or more, have taken no action whatever. Several of the individual branches of the various railroad orders have protested against an exten- iion, and probably they will be given L hearing in connection with the roads. None of the railroad organi- sations as a whole have entered pro- testsuagainst an extension. There seems to be little doubt that the commission will extend toe time. JRAILKOAD NEWS. Panhandle Engineer Carroll, who was recently Injured in a wreck, has so far recovered as to be able to be on the streets again. The Panhandle statement for October will show gruss earnings aggregating $1,400,000, the largest earnings in the history of the company In any one month. The Wabash now operates 2,381 miles of main line. Tbe western division comprises 762. miles, the middle division 709.8, the eastern division 652.1 and tbe Buffalo division 256.3. It is exciting some comment that the Pennsylvania continues to carry a larger tonnage from Chicago than any of its competitors. For four consecutive weeks the Panhandle has led all other lines. Train 11, on the Wabasb, east bound, now makes close connection with the Lake Erie & Western at Peru for Indianapolis, and In case the Wabash train - rt late the Lake Erie & Western train Is held ten minutes for the passengers oil the Wabash. Mr. C. D. Collins Is in the city In the interest of tbe Chicago Correspondence School of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen. The school has an enrollment of 3,200 students and is intended to give engineers and firemen a thorough, theoretic knowledge of their calling. Vice President Brooks, of the Pennsylvania company, yesterday delivered an address before the students of Purdue on "Problems In the Management of Railway Systems." A number of railroad men from here went to Lafayette to listen to the address and look over tbe mechanical department at the university. Anotncr Eagle Killed.

Yesterday, by agreement of the attorneys, the trial of John Mclntosh, for the murder of Frank Pottmeyer, was set for January 10th, in ttie Cass Circuit court. HOME FOB THE FRIENDLESS. Annial Report of the Secretary and Treasurer. The home has been very tenderly dealt with by the hand of Providence during the past year. To be sure there have been some aches and pains; but He has spared their lives ind restored each one again to health and activity, and not allowed the angel of death to enter and claim acy of its members, as bas been in the one of Mr. Wise, who was so closely connected with it, for in which tbe Master had need of in another home, and so called him hence. Hot only has the household been blessed with life and health, but with an abundance of everything to make a home comfortable. At times the larder has been seemingly nearing the point of becoming _ow, but just at that time something would appeal to the mluds and hearts of the good people of this city and surrounding country, and through their generosity it would again be replenished. Every month all the past year there has been a long list of donations which have been very gracefully received. The members o( the "Home family" somewhat resemble the members of some of our private families. One of the marked characteristics of the last days of the nineteenth century. Some of them become- restless, impatient and discontented and go out in other places to find, a home. So at times, the family is greater in numbers than at other times. Ten is the largest number itTias had at any one time and the number to stay only for a-short time, say a day or two, or perhaps a month or a few days, 22. The number of meals that have been prepared during the year for both transient and permanent members was 9,212. 1 must say, in regard to the persons who have had charge of the Home the past year, that they have had the work truly at heart, and I think it could be justly said of them, 'They looketh well to the ways of their household and eateth not the bread of idleaess." A great amount of time and strength has been spent. As our day is, so is the strength given us. And He who gives the strength also gives the command. "Show your love to these." And so the wnrk has been and continues to he done in H<s name."

"It is funny how people discover the real importance of a newspaper when they get into a scrape or do something they are ashamed of," said an old editor. "They live for years without subscribing, and when asked to advertise, say 'it does not pay.' But the minute they get into_ a scrape they run to a newspaper and request it not to say anything about it; and in case of trouble in which their names happen to be mentioned they realiie immediately that the paper ha§ a circulation, and they do not want their names spread all over creation." A Card of Thank. We wish to return onr sincere thanks to the neighbors and friends who so kindly assited us in oar late sad bereavement, and especially to th* companions of my ion.
