PHILADELPHIA, April 29.—The destruction of the Grand Central theatre by the fire proves to have been far more terrible in its results than was anticipated. Six members of the "Devil's Auction" company lie dead beneath the fallen walls of tile building and nearly three score people are in the hospital suffering from burns. Of the men and boys in the hospital seveti are in such a a serious condition that their recovery is doubtful. All were members of the audience. Besides those who vfr'ere seriously enough hurt to* remain in the hospitals, fully fifty others were treated for minor injuries. The tin fortunate members of the company who lost their lives are: THOMAS LOBELLA, grotesque. His WIFE, FLORA, a ballet dancor: ViKCKSTiN A CniTTEN, premier danseuse, one of the Chitten sisters. Miss FANCHON CONYERS, juvenile, residence Chicago. Miss SARAH GOLDEX, ballot dancer, residence Chicago. WILLIAM L. BROOKS, leaiii ag man of the company, residence Philadelphia. Before the bodies can be reached the walls standing at the rear of the theatre must be taken down as they are in a dangerous condition and liable to fall at any moment. Fire Marshal Thompson has been instructed to hire a gang of-me'a aud-get to work at once. After the walla are down the work of recovering the bodies of th6 dead will proceed rapidly. The water which is at a depth of seven feet in the cellar of the theatre will have to be gotten out. With but One Exception Celebration!

SHELLEY & HALL, Proprietors, Bast State St., Algona, Iowa. .Remaining: Bodies of Those Cremated at ' ' Philadelphia Found. PHILADELPHIA, May 1.—At 7 a. m. an additional force of workmen started on ths debris in front of the Central theatre, just under the galleries. This work was undertaken in consequence of a statement that there is a probability that some gallery patrons are buried here in the ruins. While ho inquiries have yet been made as to^giissing people who are supposed to have been in the theatre, it is suggested that the patrons of the highest gallery, included many newsboys, bootblacks, strangers, and others for whom none would be likely to ask. Some of them, it is feared, failed in making their escape. The labors of the searching party about the Western end of the stage were rewarded about 9 o'clock by the finding of the remains of three bodies which have been identified as those of Sarah Goldman, Fanchon Conyera and W. L. Bowker, whose stage name was Brooks. This completes the list of missing mem bers of the "Devil's Auction" company INTO A WASHOUT. LIEGE, May 1.—This city is panic stricken and collisions between the crowds of workingmen and the national militia are occurring hourly. The day passed without disorder and no attempt was made to hold meetings. After sundown the streets were filled with workingmen, some intoxicated but most of them sober and orderly. A body of militia in marching out to relieve a company on guard near the city hall came upon a crowd of workingmen and tried to march through. Instantly there was cdos of "Down with the police," "Kill the hirelings," and "Long live anarchy." The militia charged and dispersed the crowd, -' but hardly a minute later an explosion was heard, and the air was filled with splintered glass. A bomb had been set off in front of a shop about fifty yards away. The walls were shattered and the buildings nearby had the glass blown out. Nobody was injured. Within ten minutes Two More Bombs Were Exploded in the same district. The damage was trivial but the excitement is intense. Fifty arrests have been made. Bombs were exploded in the evening at the residence of Senator Baron Seliys and his -son in Long Champ. The doors were blown in and furniture and glassware throughout the house were broken. Nobody was injured. An explosion under the wall of the church of St. Martin shattered a famous memorial window near the altar and brought down part of the carved stone from the roof. The shock was terrific and it is said that no fewer than twelve pounds of dynamite were used. Windows for two hundred yards were smashed to pieces. Most citizens are guarding their own houses and few of tne wealthier families have gone to bed. Mor e explosions are expected to occur at any moment as anarchists are known to be abroad placing the bombs. J. H. QUEAL & CO.

PARIS, May 1. -Sunday was a, pleasant day and the gay Parisians all tried to forget the dangers supposed to encompass them. The boulevards and parks were crowded and the patronage of restaurants and cat'es was exceptionally large. Women and children have walked uninterfered with in the streets. In the barracks, in the police stations and in the districts around the public buildings, however, thousands of armed men have stood ready since 1 o'clock a. m. to march out at a moments notice and shoot to kill. All day squads of cavalry and mounted police have clattered through the streets to the relief of the troops on guard before daybreak, and occasionally the heavy tread of infantry reminded the promenaders that both services in the garrison had had been mobilized AgJtlust Expected I>aujforg. Every public building was garrisoned with fifty or sixty infantry with ball cartridges in their rifles. Outside sentinels at intervals of tpn yards have patrolled the street. No civilian has been allowed to approach within one hundred yards of any national or municipal building. No attempt has beep made by workingmen to hold street processions or outdoor meetings. They held, however, several monster indoor meetings with a total attendance of 100,000 or more, and at least an equal number were turned away from the overcrowded halls. The speeches were fiery and often incendiary. ^ O HOSIERY AT C. L. LUND. ESTABLISHED 1880. UTEBA.BY NOTES. THE GRANGE STORE, New and varied assortment at extremely low prices.
