Timely Discovery of Flames
Under Main Stairway.
Kire was discovered In the Temporary
City Hospital at Seventeenth and Chest
nut streets at 1:13 o'clock, yesterday af

Fred Halle, eateman nt the Institution. In

response of the Fire Department, the blaZi
V.P3 extinguished within fifteen minuus.
The damage to the building Is Flight, but
it Is the expressed belief of the ho-plial

Superintendent of the Institution, that, had
the dlscox-cry of fire occurred live minute
later, or had the Fire Department been
wlow In ariivlnp. the bullJins would havo
been 'destroyed and hundrcdi of lives lost.

WANT A HIGH SCHOOL BRANCH.
North. Side Business Men May Call
on School Board.
The North St. Louis Business Men's As
sociation has taken up the ;uptinn of es
tablishing a branch of tho High School in
tho North End, tho object being to save tl e
time, trouble and expense which pupiH
must undergo to reach tho present building
from that section of the city.
It Is thought that the establishment of a
branch would not only benefit the students
In tho North End. but would aNo Le a
benrtlt to tho High School, relieving tho
congestion which prevails them. Tho matter
will bo dlsetist-'ed in all its b nrings at .a
meeting to-night, and tho Iews of the as
sociation will bo explained by l'resi.lcnt
William Kramnie.
Mr. Kramme stated yesterday that the
new branch would bo benellcial m evry
way, as It Is a positive lnJutlco te the
floorer patrons of the school to have onlv a
central Institution. The probablo outcjnio
of the meeting to-night, ho said, will be the
appointment of a committee to wutt tirtn
the Board of Education and lay the matter
before that body.

POISONED HIMSELF
AT BREAKFAST TABLE
Ernest Gelert's Deadly Mixture,
Prepared in DMs Laboratory,
lirought Death Quickly.
With poison which he probably had pre
pared Tuesday night in hi.i llttlo chemical
laboratory In tho cellar, Ernest Gelert of
No. iao Menard street, took his own life
yesterday morning.
In tho presence of his daughter. Miss
Kdra Gelert, 20 years old. tho old man
mixed a spoonful of some deadly drug- In a
cup of coffee, which his daughter had
poured for him. ile then raised the cup to
his lips and dramc deeply of Its contents.
Ten mlnute-d later he was dead, without
having spoken a single word.
Gelert was 3 joat3 eld ind a gasflttcr.
He 1ms lived for many vents hi the house
in which ho Killed hiuiacl' and ant 1 the
last few vears workcvl at his trade. Tho
old man did not give any Indication by word
tr uct that he intended to take his life.
Tho only known reason that would Influ
ence him to commit suen an act. was tn.it
ho keenly felt his advancing age, and that
he was too feeble to keep up with tho vvork
of jounger men. He had been unntle to
securo steady employmnt for a long lme
eind ho brooded a great deal over tho Ir.ct
that ho could ni) longer perform his work
with thu speed and skill that was his 111
form r days.
Gflcrt arose early Wednesday mornli R
after spending part of the previous evening
in hl.s cellar laboratory. Ills wlfo ami
daughter prepared breakfast. At o'clock
thu old man seated himself at the table
and his daughter poured the coffee. .Mrs.
Gelert hud left tho room for a moment, and
while the daughter's attention was diverted.
Gelert mixed a speiontul of the poison with
the coffee. Tho daughter turned and saw
him stirring the mixture-, but Mipposed that
he had nit rely placed some siigjr In the
cup. A moment later the old man raised tlis
cup ami took a long, deep diaught of it.s
contents. As he set down the cup his fea
tures became distorted with agony. His
darghter became alarmed und exclaimed:
"Father, what havo jou put In the cof
fee T'
The old man ros and essayed to reply,
but the poison had already begun Its work.
En gasped for breath and then fell over
unconscious. Doctor L. II. Davi.-of No. 1023
l'ark avenue was summoned, but G -lert
was dead before he could reach the house.
Tho exact nature of the poison which
Gelert used Is not known. A collection cf
acids, such as are used bj gastitters. was
kept by the old man, and it Is supposed
that he chose either muriatic or prussio
acid to end his life.

WARSHIPS N0T IN DANGER.
Xavy Department Anticipated the
Freeze in PeChi Li GulL
Washington, Dec. 12. With a view to
avoiding the elanger of having anj of our
war vessels caught fast in the Ice in the
Gulf of rc-Chl-Ll. at the mouth ef the
Pel-Ho River, during the present winter, the
Navy Department has reduced Its repre
sentation in that quarter to two ships.
One Is the Monocacy, which has been or
dered Into a mud deck in the I'el-Ho River,
where she will reserve aa a station ship.
The other vessel is the New- Orleans, which
has, been turned Into a dispatch bo.it for
the tlino bein-r. plying between Shanghai,
Che-Fco and Taku at regular Intervals.
The army transport service has landed all
of tho supplies that are deemed to bo nec
essary to carry General Chaffee's troops
comfortably through the winter, so that it
will be unnecessary for any of those ships
to enter the !'el-Ho.
General Humphrey, tho Quartermaster in
charge, has established a new base it
Shang-Hai-Kwan. which, whllo located on
tho Gulf or I'e-Chl-LI. Is said to be ap
proachable by shipping all through the win
