Scenes During the Fire
Children Fall Backwards in
the Flames?The Shrieks
of the Dying?An
Fx plosion the
New York, August 2S.? A spe
ial to Tili? World I'roai Nyuck says
says that tiro was discovered iu the
largo boys' and and girls' orphan,
asylum, connected with St. Anne's
convent, at Sparkill, Orange county,
at 1 o'clock this morning, but not
before the entire structure, a frame
building, was wrapped in tlames.
Many or. the inmates, children,
were burned and suffocated, it was
reported early this morning. The
exact number of the dead could not
ho told at 3:15 a. m., when the tirst
dispatched reached this city.
The asylum, which is conducted
by the (Sisters of Mercy, held about
1,000 children. It was a long frame
building, threo stories high. The
Ham es were not discovered until
Athe whole building was ono mass
of lire. The children had a scant
Chan co for escape. .
The scenes at the conliagration
were heartrending. The children,
clad in their night robes, could be
seen falling backward into the
furnace of lianio and smoke, while
the shrieks of the dying could be
heard above the crackle of the de?
.Some of the children weio ciip
pled for lifo by jumping from the
windows? Many of the sisters also
were injured, while others lost
their lives heroically while trying
to rescue their charges. The firo
started on the upper lloor of tho
three-story building. Nearly 300
of the occupants of tho convent
occupied rooms on this floor and
all the dormitories wore ligthed
with kcrosono lamps.
There is little doubt that the
lire wns caused by the explosion of
ono of these lamps. The fire spread
rapidly upward and burned
through the shinglo roof of tho
building in two places.
At the time of discovery the tiro
bad made such progress that tho
sisters could not awake tho hun?
dreds of children under their care,
marshal them in order, and march
them from the building, as was the
practice at fire drills. Many of the
little victims were suffocated iu
