Canal ttreet, at 4 o'clock this morning,
which isthaughtto have been of n
ceniiary origin, tight of the sleeping
inmates had bo naming, tnd w re
burned in their be4s. Ihey were
Michael Murphy and wife and two
daughters, ajeS nine and eleven years ;
Mrs. Mary Durkin and infant hildf
Tatsey Lavin, four yare.and William
Hand, s xty-ightyersof age.
Toe lire broke out in the cellar ol
73:? Canal t treat. The flam; s shot up
ward and qui. kly burned thfotwh the
first floir, which is on a level with the
wound, febooting upward, the next
floor was soon abl- ia. The fire spread
.i ,.v, ikn wwlffl wa la of the base
ment, and No. 731 was soon wrapped
in th flamea which enveloped the ad
joining number. Both housfs were
before anv of the
occupants were aroused. Many of
f ,a .Wnem were doubt 'ess gmo hered
in their be s. It wi 1 probably never
be known who awoke and tried in
vain to escape from the stilling smoke

lower floor of 733 was occupied by
Tv,n Wliih. ir. His wile was

She aroused her husband, who hastily
n roar ATI a few article s of clothing.
He threw op a window. The raging
flames tcorched his face, singing his
bair end mustache. Not hesitating a
moment, he cauglvt his wife in his
arms, and w th a ter.ible effort, threw
her bodily through the flames out of
the window. Her night dress caught
on fire, but with great presence of
mind she extinguished the flames with
her bands and lent assistance to her
husband in saving the lives of their
two mU children. The fire had
gained additional headway. He was
unable to put the children out of the
same window. He then kicked on
the wall to arou e the people on the
second floor. Catching the babies in
his arms, he ran up stairs and jumped
with them from a second ttory win
dow. The second floor cf No 733 was oc
cupied by the Durkin and Murphy
families. No member of either of
these families escap d. The firemen,
in searching the ruins of the bouses,
came upon the most harrowing
scenes. Pome were lying in ttie hall
burned beds, ethers, who were
awakened be'ore death came upon
them, were clutching each otner in
groups on the floor. They were all
evidently overcome by the smoke be
fore any eflort could be made to es-
Ca?he upper floor was occupied by
William Hand, jr. His father lived
with him. Thev were aroused by the
smell of the smoke. Toe young nun
caught up the children and jumped
from the second story window with
them, after assisting his wife to the
street. He wanted to help his father
down, but the old man insisted on
his jumping with the children. The
aged and decrepid 'form of the o'd
gentleman was t-een at the window a
moment, and then disappeared just
as he was about to leap. The raging
fire prevented the making of an effort
for his rescue. '
The lower floor of No. 731 was oc
cupied by a man named McGuire,
who kept a grocery store. All his fam
ily was saved, ilt is bvlieved that the
fire was the work of an incendiary.
It was first seen by a watchman in a
brewery near by. He started over to
alarm the occupants. When in the
rear of the burned houses he met a
man who said: "There's a fire;
you'd better turn in an alarm." The
man disappeared up the alley. The
watrhman conld .not identify him if
he shonld see him again. This is the
th rd time the iplaoe has been set
John Welch, a teamster, said that
hew8satthe scene of the firs five
minutes after It started. He tendered
what tseistance he could and helped
in caring for the r allocated .victims.
He said a great de'ay was made in
sending in the aUrm. The delay wai

Little Johnny Durkin, aged six
-weeks, lies to Ward 10 at the county
ho'iMtal. The physician refused to
sav whether the chi'd would recover
or not, but he thought if it bad not

vara in it favor. Ks wont external
burns are abcut the bead and feet,
which were not protected as well

John Kaleien. who is landlord of
both the burned houses, tolfi his story
as follows: "When I heard the shout

Duties of the Hour.
People with duties to perform,
with families to care for, with
obligations to society or their
fellows which require complete
health and strength, both cf
mind and body, should give
attention to their condition, and
be prepared to protect themselves
against exhaustion or hiss ol

and the purity of its ingredients
there can be no question that
Brown's Iron Bitters is adapted
to this use more surely than any
other known remedy. Iron has
nowhere else been so combined.
No other iron remedy is made
without the use of whky, or
injurious and dangerous acids.
The temperance properties of
Brown's Iron Bitters commend
it to all people.' It does not en
courage or establish an appe
tite for liquors, neither docs it
give undue excitment to the
organs', of the stomach. Its
ability to prevent is equal to its
power tocure diseases of the
blood. Its influence on the
Stomach, Liver and Kidneys is
directly through this medium.
The languor, the tired feeling,
general debility arising from in
action of the liver; paim in the
back and sides resulting from
weak kidneys; dyspepsia and
indigestion caused by disordered
stomach ; all these are cured, all
may be prevented by Brown's
Iron Bitters. This is the season
when your health for the future
denends lareely on your present
care. Don t neglect tins nine
but take Brown's Iron Bitters to
prepare for the summer. As an
anti-malarial it has no equal.

Brown's Iron Bitters causes

your request, what I know of your Chill
Cure. The private assuranoei of Its efficacy

had observed on Mr. K. W. Meredith, who,
ff.r mnm thn fifteen vears. had been fore

and with seemingly increated severity.
Your our broke them at once, and there has
been no recurrence of them fr more than
six months. The other cae was ol a milder
form, and yielded more readily to oiher
remedies; but the chills would return at in
