Shileks still filled the nlr when the
olflce of the hotel was nlmmlmied to
the flames. In a window in the flftu
story on the northeast corner a man
and woman were seen struggling In
esch other's arms. The wife seemed
to make strenuous efforts to hurl her
self irom tho casement, and the bus
band appenred strongly to oppose her
awful purpose. Ilelow tliem was a sea
of fltc, ihc tongues of which fr-uned

piteous wall from the throats of the

couple had ceased their struggles and
had fallen back exhausted to be con
sumed by the flames.
Even before theto two were lost sight
of, a woman, scantily clad, appeared
at n window but ono floor below them,
to mutely appoal for assistance a. plett
Hint seemed in vain. Her courage was
reinarknblo. She waited nnd called for
help. Once or twice she climbed upon
the caslnjr, as if to jump, and tho

tried to throw a stieamof water to her,
that alio might gain refreshment from
It, and that tha flames might be stayed

t ITorts wero being made to roach her.

Frenzied people crowded to the win

There was some hitch In the machinery

were Miss Walker, a nanlry girl; Made

I. cr sister. Lizzie Hennessey, a chamber
maid. The three women rushed to the
window, threw their arms about oach
other and called for help. Behind

flames. A hundred voices from the
street called to them to be quiet till a
ladder could be placed, but the Walker

At a window on the fifth floor two
women screamed for help. The big lad

women, lliidget Doyle, Jumped before
the net was got into position. She struck
on hcrhead and shoulders, and wasdead

In this city of William II. Spencer, son
ot a former Secretary of the Treasury
and husband of President Tyler's
daughter, has only lieen disclosed since
his death In a Chicago hotel Inst week
and cremation at Free Pond, L. L, on
Sunday. The spectacle of his two
widows appearing In court hete as con
testing claimants to the little policy for
less Iban faro, which he had carried
upon his life, was what brought out the
revelation. His friends In this city had
i.orr TnArK ok him YRvnt .too
upon the death of bis ilrst wife and the
Iota of the fortune which he had in
herited from his fnther. Indeed, Spen
cer's disappearance from tho social and
club world of New York was so com
plete that all his old friends thought him
dead. I lo kept his nnmo nut or tho cltv
directory, lived n ipilet life, studiously
avoided the fashionable and popular
streets, pulled his hut over his eyes when
hetnw an old acquaintance, and thus
lived for twenty years In New York
without any of his old classmates at Ynlo
College or acquaintances of his years of
prosperity know lug of his existence.
