wid Mrs.Puxcell escaped by the stairway.
The hotel was divided about the cen
&r by a rotunda or court running to ths
top of the building, though covered aft
the second floor. The building had been
split in two at this point or division,
and the entire five stories back of tha
rotunda wore thrown into a shapeless
mass in the alley. Five stories of brick'
and wood and iron, with the. human oc
cupants, were made a more hean of
death-containing ruins. The fragments
of the wreck on Lawrence street tow
ered up into the air, dark and vawnincr.
while a great section of roof hung in '
threatening suspension over the chaos
below. Out of the pile of brick, wood
and iron below there came feeble moans
and piteous cries for help.
A fireman clambering up the moun
tain of ruins felt his feet crunch arainst
human flesh. He reached down and
touched with his hand an arm protrud
ing from the mass beneath him. There
still seemed to be no fire. The blaze
had been smothered by the falling build
ing, and the firemen devoted their ef
forts to the work of rescue. And then
suddenly the flames broke out and the-
workers were driven nrniv nrl
voices ceased to cry for help. The great
mass was from that moment nothing
but a grave.

"When I heard the terrific noise and

There was no fire to be seen then. In

of glas3 falling and people were rushing
in night clothes in horror from the

windows for help. The explosion awoke
the guests in the front part of the house
and by the time tho firemen reached the
scene they were ready to be taken from

and lantern, entered the hotel.
