wcro a mass of horrible blisters, and tho
physicians said he could survive but a
short tlmo. Ho died in a few minutes.
Chaunccy Slowy, the foreman, was tho
only other man In tho building. His face,

badly that his death seems imminent.

there, overcome by tho smoke, he fainted 1
and for bnlf-hour was leic there, tho pco

tho village settlement proper of Grosse
Point being afraid to go to his rescue, as
they were expecting every moment an
other ontbust in some of tho other build

their clothing torn or burnt off. In a
dazed and balf-crazej manner they sobbed
and bogged to bo taken as far as possibJo

had been burnt from their heads, and
