o'clock and went to a meeting of his

He hurried away from his comrades i
when the business of the evening was ,
over and reached his corner shortly j
after 9 o'clock. ,
He noticed a big crowd around the

standing about. When he looked at .
his house he saw that something was <
wrong, and tried to reach the door. ,
A. policeman stopped him. A neighbor, <
who recognized him, told him that the
place had been burned out. The neigh- ,
bor didn't knoAv that his family had (
been burned, or if he did lacked the (
courage to tell him.
"Where's Annie aud the children?" ,
asked Thomason. J
"They must be around somewhere,"
the neighbor replied.

wife and children. From one house
to another he raii, growing more and
more alarmed as he could find no trace \
of them. Finally a man who knew
him and who knew the fate of the (
family advised him to go to the police
station, half a block away, on West
100th street. He did so.
"My name's Thomason," he said.
"I'm hunting for my wife and babies." !

Mrs. Thomason was thirty years old.
The children who were burned;with
her were William, aged nine; Thomas,
seven: John H.. Jr.. and Annre. twins,
three years old, and Samuel, tlie baby,
seven mouths old.
The fire did $40,000 damage. It was
caused by the explosion of a lamp in

the second floor. Mrs. Holley was not J
in the room at the time, and the burning
oil, flying in every direction, had
ignited the room in a dozen places,
when she ran in to see what the trouble \
was. The window leading to the air

by the draught, soon found their way J
Mrs. Holley ran into the hallway
and screamed "Fh-e!" James Radden, '

The Raddens and Mrs. Holley had already

and then,mounted to the fourth and J

he was joined by Toliceman Fisher. 1
When the tenants on the third floor <
