Bncnn, March 14- The splendid nsw block of Stawart & Trowbridxe, corner of Dwljrht way and Shattuck avenue, cam very near bains destroyed by fire Saturday if ternoon. Io many of the rooms the neo-Mary thimbles have not been placed in the stove boles and temporary affairs are aestltuted. In the room occupied by Mr. Naylor, cashier of the Commercial and Barings Banks, a sack was rolled up and used as a thimble. This caught fire from the heat arising from the bakery on the first floor and dropped into the room, setting fire to a piece of clothing. Mr. Naylor -wss away at the time and the -fire was not dticATirid until the odor of smoke reached the stores below. Damage to the extent of $200 was done before the flames were extin guished. ProMrtY-owners are becoming seriously alarmed at the unprotected condition of the town in case of fire. Had the blase Saturday afternoon not been discovered in time the damage to the town might easily . have resetted over $100,000. The new block has seven finely fitted stores on the first floor, all heayiiy stocked with new goods. The valuable properties aajoimng wotua - certainly have been destroyed. The citizens are earnest in their demands for protection from such dangers, and the insurance companies are on the point of raising the rates of premiums. President Eickard of the Town Trustees was spoken to the otber day on the subject. He said. "Something must be done as soon as possible.' ' Uis idea was to have an issue of bonds, as there is now no proper fund for the purpose of sufficient mount to enable the town to purchase several chemical engines. With tbe addi- . tioa of more hydrants and some fixe hose, .. these engines would meet all the requirements in Berkeley. Fire engines are ex-p nsive, and need careful attention. The water pressure is. however, strong enough to do away with the need of the engines. At present nothing can be bought, as the board has no money. Mr. Rickard'a views are strongly indorsed by a large number of citizens, who, however, want what must be done to be eone quicuy. Around Town.' Mrs. C. C. Pernns, wife of John Perrins, has commenced a suit for divorce, alleging extreme cruelty oh tbe part of her husband. Perrins will file a cross-complaint alleging desertion on the part of his wife. Mrs. Perrins has asked for $100 attorney's feee and $50 per month alimony. Tbe case will be tried in tbe (Superior Court of San Francisco. Mrs. Perrins has not lived with her husband for some time, but has resided in San Francisco. The ohildren have remained with their father.

The following well-known artists take part: Mrs. Carmichaet Carr, bigmund Beel, Louis Heine, John W. Metcalt, and Miss fiopaie Newland. The petition o! the senior class that they be allowed interest on their diploma fund has been refused by the Regents. Hitherto the class has received a comfortable amount from this source, which ban usually been appropriated to Class Day expenses. The deposit is now turned over to the treasurer of the University and in- trAat atnnnMl. , A pleasant innovation has been made by Instructor Magee in the gymnasium drill, which makes tbe exercises one of the most pleasing of the college course. A piano is - now played during all classes in dumbbell, Indian club and ehestweight exercises. An unconscious ease and grace is acquired by the classes when keeping time to.musiu. Tbe effect is very pretty when one of the larger classes of sixty or seventy is exercising on the floor. Mr. Magee says that ' ' his experience here and in the large gymnasiums of the East has shown that the. re- , suits of the exercise conducted with the musical accompaniment were more beneficial , to both the mind and body of the students. A meeting of tbe chemical section of the Science Association will be held tomorrow morning. Professor Hilgird wilt read a paper on "Some Features of the Chemistry of Alkali Soils."

Young Will Miller, who recently inherited a snug little fortune, has been having a good time lately. A few days ago he hired a team from O' Hare's stable and took a drive to Hay wards. On his ' return tbe stableman made a complaint about the condition of the horse, whereupon Miller, to settle the matter, paid S500 for the rig. Its jreal value is about $400, and it is thought that O'Hare's complaint was not altogether spontaneous. Miller has also purchased the Gera saloon on East Twelfth street and he is treating h a friends royalist There was quite a lively scrimmage at the White House Thursday night.

Ussd ia Hiliions of.Hgmrr PPH1ES ; ALAMEDA. Narrow Escape From Dsatk of an litoxi-- citsiSaa Franciscan. Chapter or Aeeideata Hoodlami on the Kampage N otea From tbe City. Alameda, March 14. A frightful accident occurred last evening at 8econd avenue station on the narrow gauge, which nearly cost James Holmgren his life. Just before 7 o'clock, the man. who resides in San Francisco, went to the station to take the train for his home, and as usual In such cases, he stood on the wrong track waiting for the cars. Tbe engineer did not see him until too late to stop, and Hoimeren was knocked down by the pilot and rolled tor a distance of twenty-rive feet. When people rushed to hie assistance be was unconscious. Dr. Smith gave him temporary relief and he was taken to tbe Receiving Hospital in Oakland. An examination showed that he bad sustained a compound fracture of the right thigh and a superficial fracture of the skull, besides several severe bruises. Wneu he regained coasciousness the patient said be was under the influence of liquor when the accident occurred, but he knew what be had been doing. People who saw the accident say it was the narrowest escape from death tbey ever saw. Uncirilized Kamam. Alameda is unfortunate in possessing a band of tough hoodlums who seem to be particularly lucky in escaping arrest. Their general haunt is in the West End and up around Bay-street station, and once in a while they go on a tear and terrorize the good people of the city. Yesterdav afternoon the Ring amused themselves by stoning passing trains and many of the passengers had .narrow escapes from injury. Ona of the rocks crashed through a car-window and injured a gentleman who was returning t ban i rancisco. it is tune the proceedings of this gang were slopped, and if an Alameda policeman would sur-Drise himself some time by getting out to the scene of these depredations and arrest-in a few . so many hints about collusion between the police and the toughs would not be heard. Such hints are getting pretty common of late and it is time that the Alameda police were getting a shaking up from somebody. Derelict Taxpayers. There is complaint that the money for the Hatght avenue improvement is uot coming in as rapidly as it should. So far but four persons have paid their assessments, and the total ameunt does not exceed $49. After March 25th 5 per ceut will be added for delinquency. Alameda Note: Trees have been planted around the park. Edgar Holmes, who drives a coal wagon, was knocked from his wagon Saturday and crushed by the wheel. Three ribs were broken. The Bay View Tennis Club has been organized at the grounds of F. P. Bcoc, corner of Santa Clara avenue and Fourteenth street. W. H. Harnden has returned from Los Angeles, where he went to attend the funeral of his brother. A woman was thrown from an Alameda narrow-gauge local yesterday and badly cut and bruised. The public schools are closed this week. The cement walk in front of Mastick station will be laid this week. Alfred Beadle has returned from a trip to Humboldt county. Kev, John Kirby of the Park Street Church has almost recovered from his attack of paralysis. Special services devoted to the Bov' Brigade were held in the Presbyterian Church last evening. Joe Vargus has been arrested for raising a disturbance among the passengers in a narrow-gauge train. Ed Riley and a man named Finley had a quarrel on Park street '.Saturday night, which resulted in a general row, and tbe former got himself into prison as a result. He will have a seance with Judge Uznay this afternoon. G. C. King of Santa Clara avenue has returned from Yuba county. Ca tain A: B. Webber goes to A. laska on the 25th with bis bark for a season's fishing. Peter Hopkins and family have returned from Sarataga. JUGGLERY IN THE KITCHEN. Some of tb Trick Practiced In tha Sals of Adulterated Baklnc Powders. Is there not some city ordinance that will protect housekeepers from the peripatetic female with the baking powder tests ? Nobody wishas to turn a woman from the door, but really tbe frequency with which this one, or her sister, is sent around by the baking powder concern that employs her makes her, even if t'ie cleverest of her sex, a bit tiresome. Then tbe "tests" she makes are so unscientific, not to say fraudulent, that they are likewise becomtning a bore. Here, for instance, is one of them: A sample of the baking powder found in the kitchen visited, and which it is intended to defame, is placed in a glass, mixed with a little water, and stirred. Being a pure powder it foarns up like champagne, although the bubbles of carbonic acid gaa will continue to rise for a long time. Tbe tester then takes a sample of tae powder which she is trying to introduce and treats it in the same' manner. The result is a glassful of yeast-like foam. This action, she claims, is evidence ot the superiority and greater strength of her powder, whereas it is caused solely bv the flour with which the powder idifargeiy adulterated, and it is indisputable evidence of such adulteration. To prove this, add a little flower to the other powder, mx thoroughly, add tbe water, stir it up, and the same result will be produced to a degree dependent upon the quantity of flour used. The object of these people is, of course, to deceive the consumers as to the qualities of their baking powder and tbe baking powder used in the kitchen visited. The attempt to injure honest goods and make a market for an adulterated article by such methods is dishonest and desnic- .able. But to try to palm.olf ddod anv woman such a silly trick lor a scientific test is an insult to her intelligence. KKAJU lIATB IKAM8AOIIONB. DEEDS. Monday, March 14th.
