chlldioilworo running bareheaded through tho

from McNumaras stables in tho block ware
rushed out across and along the sidewalks
The priest stood on the Pear street sidewalk
and in 1 loud voice assured the people with
most of whom lie was nouualnteu that there
was danger and tlmt thoy would havo ample
time to remove their household goods after It
Ifor
became certain that the burning building
would be destroyed His voice commanded
attention and quiet was restored
Tho fro had spread to every floor of the ma
