The firemen were notifed over the phone and acting on the request of the hospital physicians the firemen went to the building without clanging a 'bell or blowing a whistle. Forty-one persons were saved) from death in the tenement fire. Thomas While, 23 years old, lost his life In an attempt to save his fiance, who, he thought, was perishing in the flames although she had been rescued by a poHoemaa The firemen carried' the occupants of the building to the roofs of adjoining buildings, over ladders.

You will thoroughly enjoy Mr. Em met Devoy and his select company of fering the novelty dramatic fantasy, "In Dreamland," In the headline posi tion at Poli's this week. The act is full of good comedy and astounding stage and electrical effects. Ward and Curran the old favorites in "The Terrible Judge;" M'lle Fregolla, light ning change artist, and a bunch of oth er acts complete this week's show. "The Pianophiends." Probably the most striking vaude ville act ever presented for the amuse ment of vaudeville patrons is the lat est production by Jesse L. Lasky, en titled "The Pianophiends," which head Poli's bill next week. In the scenic setting of an elaborate piano salesroom on Fifth avenue, New York, four clerks and a department manager are discovered killing time in the absence of customers, by playing on five pianos at the same time. A stirring ragtime number is played and when it Is. finished four young 'adles' dressed In the height of fash ion walk Into the store. In song they announce they are on a shopping tour and have dropped In to buy a piano. Waited upon by the four clerks, who In the midst of their song play on var ious pianos, an octette number is gone through, which In originality and tune fulness rivals the famous Florodora Sextette. The manager enters and seating him self at the grand piano occupying the center of the stage, proceeds to play an overture, which is participated in by the entire company, a young man and woman seated at each piano. The ef fect of nine pairs of hands playing on five pianos at the same time, can be imagined better than described. The pianos in the act will be Jewetts, from the Steinevt & Sons' rooms. The young men and women are all finished pianists and singers and were chosen from the best musioal circles of New York and Boston. The quartette of stunning girls in The Pianophiends are salt! to be the nrettiest in vaudeville. There can be no doubt that in presenting The Piano Dhiends. Mr. Lasky has not spared ex- Dense in giving vaudeville its most novel and elaborate act. Next week's bill will be exceptional ly fine throughout. A big feature -will be Edwlna Barry & Co., In the new hit. "The Home Breaker," written by Jimmy Barry. The Long Acre Four the best singing quartet In vaudeville will be with us next week.
