Saville House in Leicester Square, known now as the Eldorado

Music Hall, was on Tuesday destroyed by fire. The building -was completely gutted, but fortunately there was no wind, and the blocks behind were saved. It is becoming a fashion in London to attend fires, and the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Sutherland, Lord Robert Grosvenor, and Lord Amberley were all present at this one. Personally four firemen would probably have been of more use, but the presence of Dukes encourages the firemen, and it seems a blameless form of excitement. Why not get up a Volun- teer Fire Brigade, and so turn the new fancy to account ? They succeed in America.
