Robinson ran to tho fire-box at Madison Avenue and Sovonty-slxth Street and turned tho door handle. When ho camo back, nnd twenty min utes had elapsed without any sign of the flro apparatus, they asked him whether ha had pullod the hook. "Which riooli?" asked Itoblnson. Tho alarm was then telephoned by QrenviUo Vernon, a third floor'resl dent. The flro was discovered by W. jr. rtomc, proprietor of the Lee Garaxe, No. SI Kast Seventy-sixth Street, -where 150 automobiles are stored. Smolio poured Into his room on the fourth floor. IIo notified Rob inson, who berran calling tho tenants by telephone and thon liopt his car speeding up and down. Tlio flro bo Kan in the bascmont, swept up tho uirshaft and mushroomed on the up. per floors. Two persons were clljrhtly injured. Thomas Corcoran, the building super intendent, was burned about tho facet' and hands while assisting tenants to the street, and Mrs. Gurdon Howe, a resident on tho fourth floor, was burned about tho loft wrist whllo at tempting to drag her Airedale tcrrlor jrom her apartmont. For twenty minutes Corcoran tried to fight the flro with th building hoso. which proved to be little- better than 'a sieve. Chief Kenlon, on his arrival, Vvaa incensed over tho delay in turn ing in the alarm, "It la an outrngo," said Chief Ken ton, "that tho alarm was not sent In promptly, livery person in that house might havo been burned or smoth ered to death. Moro people are killed In this way than tho peoplo of Now York havo any idea of. Tor years the department haa been trying to 'teach peoplo to smd in tho alarm tho moment a flro is discovered." Tho twclvo young women Ilvo on tho fifth floor and aro students of the Frocbcl licaguc. Tho houso matron, they said, notli'lcd Uicin, so they dressed and walked quietly to tho street.

I saw Mr. lsadoro Kloncrt yesterday afternoon In his office at No. 1.0 Washington Btrcct, I'aterson, and wn discussed his plan of "marrlace by conscription" at some length. Mr. KIcncrt is a metropolitan person, who assured mo that 'he spent at least four days a week In New York City; that ho is a bachelor, way past his own ago limit of thirty, and that there is absolutely nothing In this proposi tion of taking ono girl after another out to dinner and to the theatro and waking up next morning richer in ex. pcrlcnce but poorer by a J50 bill.. No. tako it from Mr. Kloncrt. the real thing is to ncttlo down with a nico old-fashioned girl not too prim, how ever nono of your narrow-minded ones, and live happily ever afterward. After an hour's conversation with tho ndvocato of "marriage by con scription," I gathered that hit Ideal it Juit tha uiual mstculine conception of s croit bttwten a peach snd a prune, I trust Luther Ilurb.mk will turn his attention to Its production some day. Hut girls! splnstcr.il widows! Mr. Kloncrt himself Is a bachelor. He has a largo practice. Ho Is well dressed and llko most firm believers In Uio old-fashioned girl' he seems to possess tho very quality of speed ho deplores in her modern sister. "Men of to-day aro afraid to marry. That Is why I am calling upon the New- Jersey Legislature to help them out," ho told mo. "I'd bo vory glad to have tho Legislature make up my mind for mo. I know plenty of girls but I'm nfrald. They're all so speedy. What man can keep up with thorn? 1 How many girls of to-day who want to get married know how to cook a good meal? How many of thom caro nbout unythlng except going to a the dormant? Thoy dress beyond the young men. They eat beyond them. What fellow with 3,00O a year has a chanca of wlnnlrlg tho girl he loves? HAPPY MARRIAGES NOT FOR BIG CITIES. If he does win hor what chanca has he of keeping her In a city a big city, particularly? She wants to llvo In a neighborhood ho can't afford: to wear Krench gowns and have her slippers made to order, and by and by she meets tho fellow with $20,000 who can glvo her tlicso things and who does give thorn to her on tho side. I tell you marrlago In a. big city Is a nuro loss. Tho happy marriages occur In small cities and towns." "if you really believed In marriage, Mr. Klenert, would you think It must ' be made compulsory?" I asked. "Hut I DO believe In marriage," the young lawyer answered. "When a man and woman aro properly muted nothing can surpass their happiness. Kvery man has his Ideal girl, nnd when ho meets her hn does not rest until she Is hla wife." "What. Is you Ideal wife?" I In quired. "I'rom the picture of lilllle llurko on your desk, I have guessod that she Is red-hoaded." "You're wrong," Mr. Kloncrt an swered, blushing to the color of Miss Hurko'a hulr. "I want a brunette I have never been very partial to blondes. My ideal gill can cook a good meal, wears senslblo clothes, Is willing to have children and to look after them, Instead of rushing ore to bridge pat ties." WHAT THE IDEAL WIFE SHOULD BE. "Docs your idcul possess lutein gonco?" 1 naked as huputully as If I did not know the answer. "Well," Mr. Klenert uuswered, "alio must know something, but not too much." "Not so much as ou, for Instance?" 1 sunt. "Well, no," Mr. Klenert admitted. "A nmn doc wain his wito to look up to lilm n little, you know. Hut 1 should not bo too particular on that point. If n man and a woman aro really mated, cuoli little questions don't matter. I'm sure I shouldn't, seo tho mental dofects In u girl that I really loved. On the other band, ehi nted nut be a dazrllnr beauty, State, and particularly tho City of Kt In which to select a eugenic mate of It Is the face which nltructs at first, but unless there Is romcthlntr li.'irk nf it. It novcr holds it man long enough tor mm to consider a wedding." "You are obviously nast thirty tho ago you fix for compulsory mar riage?" I said. "Why Is It that you aro still a bachelor?" - And I stated hastily that my interest in this mat ter was purely academic. "That's what I'd like to know," Mr. KIcncrt answered. "Maybo it is bo cause I know so many nlco girls. Mnybo It Is becnuie, llko so manv men, I like my freedom. Maybo X am afraid the girls all seem n hn n speeded up I don't know. All I know it I havo reached an ago when I see thcro Is nothing In this buslnosa of taking ono girl and then another out for dinner nnd the theatre. What have you got tho next day? Nothing but n pockotbook In mourning nnd tho certainty that tho girl will go out that evening with nnothcr man, but that when sho feels like It -she'll ring you up. Jolly you into the belief that sho likes you nnd that you are a pretty nice fellow, and so on, over and over again. Thoro Is nothing In that. That is why I want tho Legls. lature. to compel bachelors to marry and sottlo down. And if thn bill passes I hope my namo will bo the first to be drawn In tho lQttcry, and that they will tako mo and marry mo to somo nlco girl."

Klrchcr's cell was empty, but on his cot was a cunningly con trived dummy. From thu fact that Kircher had put tho dummy on his cot It Is assumed that ho had csenpod when tho con vletH woie locked tip latt night.

Collins and his male nnd female ac complices, according to- Oarbarlno, watched tho big hotels along tho coast for the arrival of men of wealth and prominence. One or two of the mem bers of tho gang apparently had a wide knowledge of public and wealthy men, becauso. they were ablo to spot several elderly, dlgnlflod Americans from rcmoto parts of the United States who registered at Atlantic City Hotels under assumed names, nnd ns -husbands of young and lively women.
