A ?'Ar almost ?u?crliaman ettoru hvldm men stretched from the roof of the bank building across the alley to tho sixth story of the hotel, and the brave firemen carried ten girls across the frail bridge, four of them dead. The maze of telegraph wires encircling tho building en the south and east sides played sad havoo with the unfortunate per? sons who made the frightful jump for life. Several of tho bodies were cut into by the wires, and then the torn and bleeding forms would drop to the gronnd. Others would stiIke the wires crosswise, rebound, and be hurled to the ground with a dreadful crash. To the poor walter girls, all lodged in the sixth story and the attic, tho saddest lot had fallen. Of the. sixty young girls utily eleven were heard from as alica this evening. It is feared that the first estimate of fifty lives lost is tn too low, and that fully double that number were burned or smothered to death rn the blazing pyre. Thc police patrol soon began their dreadtul work of gathering thc dead aud wounded. The former were taken to the Morgue, which was soon tilled, the latter to tho Central Police Station, where they were cared for by physicians. From 5 o'clock the interior of the building was one mass of Hames; tue upper floors soon giving way and carrying tho low. r floors with them. A thundering crash was heard for blocks, and th n the fire shot up fully fifty feet, sending a shower of sparks and cinders over the whole northern portion of the citv, carried ahead by a brisk southwesterly wind. Hid it not been for rho thi< k co it of snow on Vie roofs, many a building north of ihe hot. I would be a mass of srnoul.'er.ng ruins to-day.

The story of a hairbreadth escape from a terrible death is related by Lizzie Angliind, one of the dining-room girls. 8he awoke and beard a noise about 4 o'clock a. m. Sho awakened her room-mate, Mollie Connors, and tho two girls hastily ggMMi snd att'-m'.ted lo descend by the stairway, only to find themselves facing a sheet of fl imo. Miss Connors, terribly frightoued. screamed out, "My God, Lizzie! Wo can't got through thr-l" Lizzie replied, "We must got through or ponda," With this Lizzie rushed through the Hames snd succeeded in roaching the offttf. Hour, wh rv sim fell insensible. Nae was terribly burned about tho I neck and lower portion of tho 1 hui and on her arms and logs, but her injuries ure not fatal. From Miss Angland tho fate of Mollie ('minors ic learne I. 8tio siys that when sh" siartod through tbe, flames she turriell to sn- il Mollie w.is coming, mid she saw her fall on the stairway. This leaves no doubt but that Mollie < moon p"rislied in the burning building. Another escape kl !>e recorded is that of a man whose name could not be learii"d, who v as seen swinging himself from tho lifth floor of tho burmun building until bia feet touched the window lielow ; kicking in the glass, BB droped and crabbed tho Fash.
