THE danger of throwing lighted matches I down in the public streets has often been exemplified. Sometimes the result is that a lady's dress catches fire, and in other caes the lighted match falls into the cellar and sets the contents ablaze. This is supposed to have been the case in High-street, Cardiff, last night. A lire broke but in a cellar underneath an auctioneer's store-room, and had it not been discovered in time the premises, which are very old, and therefore of a highly combustible nature, would probably have been destroyed. The premies were left apparently safe at half-past nine, and the tire was not perceived until a quarter past eleven. As it originated in the cellar, to which there is an open-barred grating facing the street, it is supposed that a lighted match thrown away by some smoker had fallen through the grating into the cellar and ignited the loose straw, a large quantity of which was in the cellar at the time. It is to be hoped that all smokers who light their pipes, cigars, or cigarettes out of doors will take care to blow out their matches ere throwing them down.
