ROOF HAD CAUGHT FIRE
WILL FORM AN ORGANIZATION
Hitch in Alarm to Department Over
the Telephone Causes a Delay of
About Five Minutes.
The efficient drilling of tlie pupils
in the fire drill prevented a panic nt
the Kemble .school building this after
noon, when fire was' discovered at
2:15 on the roof of the building. One
of the teachers was Informed of the
blaze by a passer-by who saw the
smoke emitting from the roof, and the
teacher promptly gave the fire drill
signal. The janitor of the building,
thinking that the drill was merely fur
practice, as most of the pupils too
supposed, timed the drill. All of the
'S.'.'t pupils were out of the building
in 30 seconds.
The blaze proved to be of no great
consequence, the flames being quickly
extinguished with chemicals. The
damage will probably not exceed $25.
Alarm In Confuted.
The alarm to the department waS
confused, because of the inefficiency of
the telephone, and the wagons were
hurried to the Lincoln building on
Seventh avenue and Twenty-second
street. Over five minutes was lost be-
Pupils were promptly marched out by drill without disorder while fire
partment misled by telephons alarm dashed to another
building several blocks away.
fore the members of the department
discovered the mistake caused by the
telephonic alarm, and located the fire.
Fortunately the delay did not make a
great difference in this instance, but
had the flames secured more headway
the delay would have been costly.
The incident is another of the many

strong arguments for an efficient fire
It is customary in all of the schools
to hold a fire drill at irregular time's,
and Miss Adda Muse, principal of the
Kemble building, has taught the pupils
to leave the building in an orderly-
manner when ever the bell is sounded.
The pupils in this way never know
whether the signal is for'a mere drill,
or is a genuine alarm.
The Kemble school is one of the old
est in the city. For some years it
was abandoned as a school, and was
used as a church.

disease from a careful and continued
study of the patients of the tubercu-i
losis wards. The open air treatment
is the main method of treatment fol
