In that time a property damage cHlimated from SIO.OOO.OOO to fl5,U00.0UU wns caused. According to the city map. 130 hlooki were burned, many of them In the heart of the business and residence section. The eslimnte of houses to the block is ten. heuce ISmi of them weal up in smoke.

Within thts space practically everything is binokened ruins. On Bay street, Ihe principal mart of trade, the Western Union Telegrnph Company's building Is Ihe first liullding standing going west. ISverytbng east of Laura Bay Is gone. The suburban settlements, with the exception of La Villa, are intact. I.,u Villa was badly hurt. Thousands of persons tramped the streets, homeless, with practically all ot their worldy possessions upon their backs. The statious of the railroads, slluated In the southeastern section, were turned Into temporary lodging houses anu hos¬ pitals. Luckily the weather was flne, ao tbat there waa no suffering on that acore. Seven hotels, including the Windsor and St. James, a theatre and nearly all the business buildings are gone. The St. James was the principal hotel of the city, a brick structure, flve stories high. It wns the winter bome of many Northern mllllonarles.

So fierce was the blase, however, nud so strong the wlud. thnt sparks and liurning shin¬ gles were thrown five or six blocks, settlug aflre roofs of housea In ad¬ rance of the depnrtment. Seuator Tal¬ iaferro's residence and other adjoin¬ ing houses were soon ablase. Desperate efforts were made to aave the Windsor and St. James hotels, but Iwth were quickly wrappeil In flames. For about an hour the patrons of the Windsor had lieen busy pnoklng. nnd they went away loaded witb trunks nnd grips.

PROGRESS IN PRINTING ONE OF THE MOST POTZNT FACTORS OF CIVILIZATION. rhe Orlain of the Art Is Shrouded I Mystery—rirst rrsctlced In Ihe Far Kasl - The rirst Movable Type Made In 1«S6 — Improved Modern Methods. The origin of the art of printing Is shruuiled In mystery. It Is iinposslble to say when or by whom it was flrst n -<1. even In Its crudest form Marco Fido found the art being practiced In till- Far Kast. and It Is on record that In Iho reiiuilcst aiitli|iiily Ihe Orien¬ tals used stamps, with colored inks, til their dueumenis of vnrlous kinds. .\ similar «orl uf printing Caiitalii Couk found rotunion In the Sandwich Isl¬ ands, and lie linmglil Iioiiie with hllll froni one uf the Leeward Islands n stamp with which tne nntives printed dpiiigns uu Ihe burders uf their clothes. We have records that similar work was doue in .Saracenic Sicily in the eleventh cenlury. un cuverleis nnd vestim-nls. lu several colors. It Is i-lalmeil that the reasuu why the an- cii-nis dill not fashion some nn ehanl- i-al means uf pres.-rving their poems. si-ieniitii- memoranda nud ecclesiasti¬ cal wor_s was that the nus.-'-i si-rllii-s were slaves, ami hat their ninlntenace was unly a matter of about live cents a day. so Hie Inventive minds of ilie age saw no jitissllile profit in any attempt to iniiltlply Hie few buuks. or sci'ulls, called for, nnd as these man¬ uscript sciulls uf papyrus nr parch¬ ment wen- only sought by the wealthy, the demand was easily supplied by the nrlisnns uf Hie |M-n and brush. lint as elvilzatluu begun tu advance nnil a Hilist for knowledge became mure giiieial and tin- illsirllm-io of the HiimglilK of the brightest minds demanded some ready means rf spreading broadcast the teachings of the iiinsiers. It was no louger possi¬ ble, na iu the days of the (^n-eks, to satisfy the longings of the people by hearing rend in the .Mhenlan theatre the iKiems of Aeschylus. Sophocles snd Euripides. The thousands In Europe beyond the reach of the theatre were peeking fur Ihat culture and an under¬ standing uf the great forces of uttturo which cinild only conic to them throngh the researches ot the .Teat mliiiis of tho age. In 14;!i! Laurens Koster. of Haarlem, conceived Hie idea of i-uttlng with a knife nlphaliets of separate movable Iy|(C. which, whea set In rows, formed words and sentences, and wben bound together and placed on the bed of the rnile im-sses of the period could be inked and Impressions pnlled from them niuch lu the satne manner as Is now doue un Hie ordlunry Iloe hand press. Another method practii-ed. ns is shown lu nn Ulustrotlun in "Cnpll- luu's Hlstury," 'n'as pruductlve uf much better results. It was nut unlike Ihe present way of taking proofs ot galleys of type with n roller. By this methoil after the form was Inked au onllnary wooden cyellnder. possibly covered wllh sumo soft cloth, was passed over the type or wood blocks, and a printed sheet wna the result. From 14:;ii to miHI Is a lung .ump. but skilled labor and busy brains have made great strides ns the years rulled by. It was not until 1810 that a ma¬ chine printing press was constructid by Frederick Koulg of England, who hnd a patent Issued to him In that year. It Is easily within tho inemory uf living persuns when all books were priuted on the hand press. I/Ct us assume a work illustrated wllh wood engiavlngs. Th. :i a form nf say eight pages of au octavo conld lie printed on the hand press. From Ihls. the quality being lirst-class. the day's work wunld resnit In the neigh liui'liood uf about 400 impressions, and this would reiiuire a careful pteBsmaii ami helper. To-day of Ihc same work It Is pussllile to Impose ft thirty two page form nn a mudern stop cylinder press, and after being made ready w.- can safely cuunt upon at least fiOOO Im¬ pressions In a worklug day. this being live Hini's the numlier of [lages possi¬ ble ou Hie hand press and twelve and one half times the amount of product, and this result can be obtained day af¬ ter day inilll thi- plates nre worn out, and the last sheet should be substan¬ tially aa goud as the flrst. Inasmuch .'.s when the furm Is made ready, the im pi-esslun carefully adjusted and the Huw of ink properly gauged the only cnll upon humau agency is lo sec that the sheets are regularly fed. the form kepi clean aud the Ink fountain fliled. and the press reels oft the sheets to the cud uf the edition. With the dully press the output Is n marvel. Then- ate presses in this city Hint cau turn off riO.inKI tu 40.000 itu- [iressluus an huur.
