EQUIPMENT IS INEFFECTIVE
The lack of lifenets was manifest, as
most of the injuries resulted from
jumping from the second and third
story windows to the ground. ■ The
general equipment of the fire depart
ment seemed ineffective-.
That chance was kind to some was
shown in the case of E. A. Bender, a
young draftsman employed by, the
Natoma Consolidated, a few days ago
Bender was in San Francisco, and,
while walking down Market street,
he noticed some knotted ropes in a
window. He stopped and read a sign
which cautioned the public to beware
of tire. He bought one or the ropes.
To it lie owes hi« life and also those
of two other persons.
When Bender found the hallway
filled with smoke he rushed to the
window and looked out. Then he
thought of the rope. He secured it
firmly to the bedpost, and, with two
other friends, who were stopping with
him after the dance of the night before,
made his escape without serious Injury.
Except for the rope, escape would
have been possible only by jumping.

In addition to the exhibition of
prize and trick cats and the ring show,
two of the most popular features of the
meeting , . Matthew McCurrie. secretary j
of the San Francisco Society for the j
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, ad-
I dressed the visitors on a brief history
of the cat and an outline of the work
performed by his society.
"Cats are among the oldest of do
mestic animals," said Mr. McCurrie.
"Five thousand years ago they were
pets in the households , or the ancients."
The speaker then traced the history
of the cat from that time until the
present, starting with the period when
the cat was an object of worship, then
a symbol of witchcraft and ill luck,
and now the recipient of care and at
tention In kennels or homes , , of the
object for disdirected boots and alarm
clocks while traversing rear fences at
unseemly hours Is the morning.
"This Is a remarkable collection of

short haired, from the "tabby' to the
Malay cat with half a tall; the Mada

SOLVES VAGRANT PROBLEM
During the last year more than 4,600
homeless cats were taken in by the so
ciety. Of these, 4,133 were put to
"There !s only on" way to meet the
problem of vagrant cats," McCurrie
said, "and that is to kill them at birth
and not wait until' they have grown. |
It is a real problem, requiring a great
deal of consideration, in the east it
is necessary to post placards warning }
residents not to leave their premises
! permanently without providing for
their pets. There Is a peculiar super
stition connected with cats. It is a
superstition existing In the minds of
many pers-ons. When we advise per
sons to kill a litter of kittens they
usually decline with a shrug of the
shoulders and pass the duty to some
one else. I have a deputy In my office
who has been with me many years,
and he can not be prevailed upon to
kill a cat."
Many of the animals, particularly
those with "temperament," developed a j
I mild form of feline hysteria toward j
the end of the meet, owing to the con
stant prodding and handling by vis-
The "garden" variety maintained
j their composure to the !ast, accepting

backs and distended claws.
