it seemed as if thev thought that tlielr

away from the door. One young girl,
joei earning at the top of her lungs, hit

He forced hi way to the middle of
the crowd, and then he had to give up.
It was all he could do to fight his wsy
out again.
The other end of the room was In
flames. Through the roles of his shoes
Tommy knew that the whole floor was
burning on its under side.
A glance at Celestia filled h.n heart

fling water on the crowd. And between
them they began to clear a way to the

beginning to burn through helped,
Tommy got to the door at last and
dragged It open. That started another
stampede that had to be controlled with
more water and with more violence. But
gradually Tommy got to the door and
Celestia In the crowd began to bring a
little order out of the chaos, and to herd
the girls through the doorway like sheep,
not too many at a time.
Twice there was a jam, but Tommy
straightened the half-witted girls out,
hurrying one and restraining another.
He was too busy to see what Celestia
was doing, but ho called to her from
time to time.
It had been a slow businecs, and hy
now the floor was hurnlng clear through

"Oh," he thought, "If only she could
love me, oould let me know ahe loved

It seemed to him that he couldn't die,
that he mustn't die without her knowing
Then a sudden and more practical
thought came Into his head. If he was
to die, he must die trylnr to save her. I
Then she would understand. He looked I

a great roll of black rnd white atrloed

Celestia leaning against the wall near
the open window, he made a dash for the

fire buckets that still contained water.
It was his notion to wrap Celestia In
the wet stuff, to take her In his arms,
and carry her safe to the door, and to
that safety which still seemed to exist
By some strange freak of the fire
there was still quite a large area of
flooring surrounding Celestia, as yet un
burn ed. But between that and the door,
to make the crossing, seemed to offer but
one chance la a hundred. The one who
was carried might live to tell th tale

lie alive when he reached the street, he
would not live long thereafter.
It takes many words often to tell of
what happens in a few Instant of time.
From the first cry of fir to the time
when Tommy had wrapped Celestia In
the wet shirting, and was preparing,
you may say, to wade through hell for
her, was only a few minute.
The last girls to leave the sewing
machine room had only Just reached th
street. Fire engines were still coming.
The crowd thet watched the conflagra

"Now for It." thought Tommy, and to
;celestlan he ahouted (he had to shout to
make himself heard):
"Don't be afraid, dear. I'm going to get
you out of this."
And he gathered her strongly In his
arms, pictured out, with swift eles, what
appeared to be the best route through
the flames, drew one gtat, lone breath
of fresh air, and Just then another great

Mr. Marlatt has g1v-n an lr.teretlng
(description of 1hl, curious appendiute:
"With the growth of the larva It be

a very Interesting way. Without leaving

Is made on the opposite side, and the
larva revere Iterlf without leaving the
case and makes corresponding tilts and
additions in the other half.

the experimenter desire."
When it feels It end drawing near the
larva usually attaches it case to the
garment on which it ha been feeding,
but ometlma carries It elsewhere to be
attached. About three weeks later the
transformation la finished, and the moth
emerges, ready to lay eggs for the produc

The egg are laid in April. May nr
June, according to the latitude, a a cer

they are deposited directly on th gar

are deposited In crevices of trunk and
boxes, m which garments have been laid
away, and a soon as they are born the
larvae creep In through the minute cracks
and begin their forbidden feast.
Th best way to protect garments is
to begin In April or May and heat and
brush them thoroughly every few days
before they are put away In tightly closed
receptacle, with camphor, tobacco, naph
