THE LELAND HOTEL
lathe meantime Lewis Leland and the ele
tttor boy Henry lloechor had run no stairs
and dashed through tho hall calling to the
guests to set out of their rooms Soon tho
flames began to lick the sides of tho court In
to centre of the building Tho flames quickly
ran up tho sides creeping Into windows set
tins tho tapestries on tiro burning tho
room and oven tho beds In which
the guests wore lying Undoubtedly
fime died before their voices could
b heard At first many wore saved by the
ttort of police and citizens who bad ral
lied to tho scene No one thought of saTing
anything but his life To
ati le tomo deep sleeper
the frt signal of their dancer was horaldod
by thg break Ing In of a door by the force of
motion Others were blinded and choked with
smoke and made their escape by creeping
upon the floors to their doors and through the
hal t the stairways
On the onttlde pandemonium reigned Spec
tators glanced at the burning structure for an
instant and ton turned sickened away
Bbtltta < UII Oiled the air when tho office of the
hotel was abandoned to tho flames In 1 win

man and a woman were soon struggling In
etch others arms The woman seemed to
make strenuous efforts to hurl herself from
the casement and the man appeared as strong
ly to oppose her awful purpose Below thorn
was a sea of fire the tongues of which framed
the window wherein they stood Tho cry of
My God cant you help Ihm1 met a ro
spouse in the heart of each onlooker A
piteous wall from the crowd finally told tho
story that the couplo bad ceased their strug
eles and had fallen back exhausted to be con
earned by the flames
Even before these two wero lost sight of a
woman scantily clad appeared at a window
but one floor below them to mutely nppoil for
assistance Her courage was remarkable
Bho waited and called for help Onco or twice
sho climbed upon the casing as I to jump
and the crowd turned their eyes away with
horror But sho stood fsst either from fear or
a gain of courugo Then sho crept back
from the casement and Into tho room Every
effort was made that could bo mado to reach
her with ladder but all woro ineffectual
Alain the firemen tried to throw a stream of
water to her that she might gain refreshment
from It and that the flame might bo stayed
nomowhat In their course while further efforts
ware being male to reach her At last after
tho brave struggle she had made tho woman

tored hIs name on the blotter got his key and
with two others equally unparticular ascended
in tbo elevator to tho fifth story Mr Miller
might not have been so willing to no up so
high if on tho previous night which he bad also
spent at tho Loland Hotol ho bad not famlliar
Ircd himself with tho fire escape by reading
tho directions for Its use and examining It
On reaching his room which was No
151 he hardly waited for tho porter to shut
the door before ho took oft his overcoat and
coat nnd hung them up In the closet He hill
just dono this whon ho board un automatic fire
alarm ring with a whirring nolso In the hall
Although It did not ring for moro than ten sco
onds whon be opened the door he found the
hall filled with n dense smoke through which
n bright light could bo seen In tho direction of
the elevator Women wero shrieking for ad
iu Ibis distance and cries of Help I gave
mo r echoed through the corridors
