Mr. Eginhardt Schmitt, manager of the Golden Bule dry goods house, received a telegram yesterday afternoon, informing him of the destruction by fire of the firm's main store at Danville, Ills. The fire occurred while the store was filled with customers. It started in a large show window from an electric light wire, and a cleirk thought , he could easily put it out. But when i be opened the door to enter,the draft I of air gave the flames such an 1m- 1 petus that they soon spread to the main floor. The fire department was called, but its work was Ineffectual. The stock was completely consumed and nothing remains of the stock or the bie brick building except three bare walls, the fourth having fallen, in. A young lady named Miss Laura Reed, a clerk in the cloak department, on the third floor, was unable to escape and perished in the flames. The building had a frontage of 48 feet, and a depth of 165 feet, three stories high. The store was the largest of the kind in Danville. The firm estimates its loss at from 180,000 to 1100,000, with 128,000 insurance. The store was owned by Schmitt & Heln)y, who also own the Golden Eule establishment in this city . Mr. Eginhardt Schmitt, manager of the Logansport store, went to Danville last night to see the ruins and consult with his employers as to their future business movements. AttOSft INSURANCE AGENTS.

We guess beautiful neck- appeai-ance, Afler January 1st Kates o» Life Insurance nill be Adraiiced. As the end of the year approaches local insurance agents are beginning to count up their profits and see how they stand for the year. They are also receiving instructions from their companies as to rates, etc., for the coming year. Considering all things, the year has been a fairly profitaole one, some agent's books showing a slight gam over last year, while others show a slight falling off. Upon an average the business is in a fairly good condition. The Instructions sent out do not show any advance in rates at the beginning of the year so far as fire risks are concerned. The figures fixed by the local board in October last, when they were reduced from ten to fifteen per cent, will be in rorce. In life insurance the first of January will see an advance. The Mutual Life of New York, the New York Life and Eanitable of New York have all signed an agreement to advance their rates, and have so notified local agents. A policy for 11,000, that now costs $30 per year, will cost from 12 to 93 more after January 1st. In all else insurance rates lor 1898 will remain as they are.
