With hundreds of passengers from nil parts of tho Kuinpcan war yone on board the American Line fcteampshlp Dominion landed at the Washington avenue wharf from Liverpool, this nioinlng. Tho liner ii rived after an uneventful voyage, on which no obstacles were encountered, "not even a On man cruiser," as Captain W n. Ingham put It. Uut If the voyage of the ship was un eventful th" experiences enc&untcrcd by many of the passengers on tho continent were different. Many or tho passengers, nnd pai Ocularly the women, havo ex periences of nil sorts to relate. A graphic story of the occupation ot Iirusbels by the German foices was told by Mliis Ull.tboth Doorr, of this city, who luft Ilrusscls a day after the aniva! of tho German army there. "I shall never forget tho sight," said MIs Doo-r. "One million men, like a great lolling cloud, pafesed through tho city. It took them three days and three nights to do it, and when they got through Urust-els wuh foraged. Thcro vviia hardly a bit of food In tho city. Not a drop of milk could bo gotten. All tho food atorcs and warehouses were emptied by tho Germans and tho palaco and public houses wero occupied by U- now Ger imu gauison left behind by the main army. "It was on Augii't 20 cnily In the morn ing when wo lecc-Iv-t-d oid!fi that all Hags but tho Ocimnn nnd the Ameilcan Hags imifct bo lomovcd fiom sight. A short time nftcr the receipt of this older tho 111 st German olllcer, riding on a blcjcle, entered tho city. Wo saw him, for, en couraged by the report from tho American legation that tho city would bo sur icndered without resistance, wo took a chance and went out for a promenade. Behind tho olllcer came 40 cavalry men with llflcs ready to shoot If any sign of sniping should nppar. And then camo the renl sight. Ono million men, one huge, endless oloiid of humanity entered tho city. It .seems strange, but all of them loo't.-d tiled Munv of thorn seemed to he d'-zlm; on their hordes, nnd every now nnd then, miibcd by some nolso und sound, would lmriiedly open their eyes and look fibrin them. pAisi: fop. nit.sND wntTi.ocic. 'Gient credit is duo to Hrund Whitlnck, tho Amoilt'in Minister to Belgium. I don't know what tho Americans in Brussels would havo dono without his valuable nld. Hut thnt is not all. Tho fact that Brussels was baved from tho fate of I.ouvaln is duo dlroctly to tho e fruits of Mr. Whitlnck. On tho ovo of tho anlval of tho German army n meeting, at which tho city authorities and Mr. Whlllock wero present, was hold In tho city Hall, It was at first suggested that tho Bel gians elufe-nd the city to the Miry lust man, but Mr Whitlnck piovaited upon tho civil nnd military nutlioiltie-s to iirieu dcr the- lly, saying that it would bo uso los to 101 i.i- any rcislatico. since It would bo overcame and would only re sult In great loss of life nnd property. "I am glad to tay," contlnue-il Miss Doerr, "that nil the art treasures of Hrusj-C'ls have lesn saved from seUuro by tho Germans, because they had all been previously lemoved to Kngland." Miss Doerr said that after leaving llrus- ti-ls It took her 13 hours to got to Ostein), whereas tho trip should not take more than two hours She left Philadelphia In 1 July and unit to Hrussc-U to complete ft CQUrso in music.

Sho was aroused by tho crackling of llnmes and when she saw tho blaze sho screamed "lire" an; then foil back In her r6om In a fnlnt. Her mother, Mis.

The bluecoat, In his pajamas nnd without shoos or stockings, ran two blocks to Glrard nvenue nnd sent In an nlarm. When he returned tho envelope plant was blazing so fiorccly that he ran back again and turned In a second nlarm. By tho time policemen nnd firemen arrived the tluee floois of the plant were abl.izo and the flames wero thient enlng adjoining dwellings. The family of James Schreincr, 1233 Howard street, had pcislstently iefuied to heed tho' culls of neighbors to flco to tho street. Policemen Cooper and Casper finally ran into tho house and carried out three children, after which tho parents fol lowed. Several firemen wero pattlally over come by the thick smoke, but after being treated by ambulance surgeons from three hospitals who camo to the scene they returned to work. No ono was ln-Juied.
