It was during the middle of the

"lire" and it a moment tho wild
rush for the narrow stairway followed.
The passageway was speedily
blocked anil the panic-stricken
men, women and children, jumped
and trampled each other to death
in their wild efforts to get out.
When fear had finally passed,
and it required but a few moments,
the entrance was packed
as high us the ceiling with the

the holiday festivities.
In a number of eases the
thus had been trampled to death,
