those rooms during that lime by guest
who made the tenement ring with th

the arrest of ilayllss and two others,

Believed to Have Started Blaze.
Because the fire alarm system was out of order and the fire hydrant
near the building was useless, Melville B. Mendell, a lawyer, with offices
at No. 5 Beekman street, died in an heroic effort to save the life of his
fourteen-year-old daughter, Lillian, who perbhed too when their homo
at No. 10 Percy street, Woodside, L. I., burned early this morning.
When the firemen arrived, thirty-five minutes after the blaze had
started, they found Mr. Mendell's body and that of his daughter within
I few feet of each other. Both hnd died of suffocation, it was apparent 1
the father had died struggling through the smoke and trying to reach his
daughter, who was asleep in her bedroom. The father reached the bed
room, but the daughter had arisen and tried to grope her way out, fall
ing a few feet frotn the door of her room. Father and daughter must
have passed each other in the darkness and stifling smoke.
