feature, too, but it was such a one as the

fact it was a lire. A guard in the eniplos
of the intramural elevted railroad at the
station on the roof of .the Transportation
building annex saw lire climbing up a
draped poi-t in the exhibit of the transat
lantic French mail line steamers in the
gallery and turned in an alarm, at the
same time trying to extinguish the blaze.
When the firemen arrived the blaze bad
reached the overhanging streamers and was
rapidly spreading to the adjoining sec
tions, which are separated only by wooden
partitions. The lire was extinguished,
however, in a few minutes, but it necessi
tated the throwing of water which did con
siderable damage, but did not materially
injure the exhibit. H. Dow, the guard,
was badly burned aliout the neck and was
taken to the hospital.
