With flnmp-s lcnpliif from n tenement house window In which he was ItiiiiRlnK CO feet above n courtyard, Samuel Friedman made his way In iufcty by ihiIIIiik himself hand over Inlid along a clothesline to another tenement. Friedman, who Is thirty- one years old, and n shoe salesman, was Implied In his room nt the top of u live-story tenement houso at 1787 Madison avenue. More than one hundred tenants In the place were awakened by the cIiiiikIuk of street car koiirs when con ductors and motormen discovered the lire. Most of the occupants mannKed to leave their rooms by wny of the rear fire escape. Friedman prepared to leave, but thought that his sister I.llllan had been Into the sinola-lllled Hat and continued the lire escape. His sister already had reached thu street. Hu was hanging In the window CO feet above the court when Louis Mnrkowltz In an opposite tenement saw his plight and threw u long clothesline to him. With the rope doubled, the two men made It fast between the buildings. Friedman let himself out on the ledge, with the flames licking the window casing above him,. Ho dangled full length for n moment and then mnde his way slowly, hand over hand, to the other building, whllo hundreds below cheered. Mary Jaffe, twenty-two years old, her sister neatrlco, twenty, nnd Ber nard, her brother, eighteen, were caught In their flat on the fourth floor nnd were rescued by Hremen with the aid of ladders. The ladders were short of the window and the two young women were forced to drop Into the arms of the flremen before being carried to the court. Ten companies answered the lire alarm and soon extinguished tho blaze. Dog Saved Its Mistress From Miserable Death OTTAWA, ONT. After watching for two days the spot In Duck lake where her husband was drowned, Mrs. I'ntrlck IJruycro of Hlvcr Desert, Quebec, was saved from starvation by tho sagacity of her dog, which swam from tho rock In a lonely part of the lake where within a few feet of the drifting boat, he tailed to his wife to let go of the line. As ho did so Uruyero stepped Into a hole and sank. Mrs. Uruyero was unable to help him. On the lonely Island her calls for help were unanswered for two days. Then the Ilruycrc's dog swam from the mainland. Tho woman found pencil and paper In her husband's cont, which he had taken off beforo ho went after the canoe, nnd wrote an appeal for help which she tied to thH dog's collar and told the animal to return to the mainland. The dog carried tho message to a neighbor, who orgarlzed n searching party and rescued Mrs. Uruyero. who was In u serious condition from ex posure and luck of food. The body of her husband was recovered. New York Fire Chief Covers Himself With Glory MONROE, LA. Within 21 hours nfter ho arrived on the scene, former Deputy Chief William Guerlh of the New York Are department extin guished thu largest gas-well lire in tho history of the world. It took Chief Uuerln Ave minutes to put out tho flames which had baffled experts of controlling tho tremendous blnze. The well Is neir this city, and Is owned by the Ouiichltn Natural Oas and Oil company. The flow was -14,-000,000 cubic feet c day under a head pressure of 1,500 pounds a squnro Inch. Chief Ouerln tells ut he did It. "The Are had been burning slnco 10:15 o'clock on tho evening of Juno 10," said Chief Guerln. "It was ex tinguished at 10:15 o'clock on the morning of June 2.1, after It hnd been burn ing for Ave and a half days. In that tlmo 242,000,000 cubic feet of gns hnd been burned, tho loss being conservatively estimated at 1,000,000. "After looking over thu Mtuntlon I decided that tho problem was exactly tho snmo as one that I hnd fared while In tho New York flru department. The only difference was one of degree. Two hoso lines working under high pressure were led up to the well as closo ns posslblo and the water turned on. After cooling tho ground and what remained of tho pipe the two ltues of hoso opposed to each other, wero gradually raised. Meeting as they did In thu column of gas, ns soon ns tho stream reached tho baso of thu llamo tho water was turned Into steam which formed a curtain shutting off the gun from thu blaze above In such a way that thu Are was extinguished almost magically."

This seemed to nniiisu Long, and watching his chance, Chief Bond made a quick spring nnd struck Long u hard blow on thu neck, just below tho ear, with his list. This sent him sprawling, and Bond then kicked him In tho face, making hlpi unconscious. He ripped Long's shirt (ill" stilps nnd hound him hand ami font.

There are two ways of getting Into the Atlantic ocean from German ports. One Is through the English channel, which has been blocked since the be ginning of the war; tho other Is through the North sea, which English naval strategy has thus far failed to cloe. The nnrrowest outlet of the northern route Is between the Orkney Islands nnd the coast of Norway, a distance of 210 miles. But the depth of water nt this point Is such that submarines mny easily dive below any mine or net sys tem that might be stretched across thu wide neck of the bottle here. .South of this line the water becomes shallower, tun! mine or net laying be comes effective from Flnmborough Head directly across to the coast of Jutland, passing over the famous Dog ger bank, with from 00 to 120 feet of water, to the shallower depths over thu Jutland bank, Below that point there Is more shoal water, with frvquent btinks iiuil ridges nnd Hats which have to be carefully avoided by mariners, and which make submarine operation dllllcult. The problem, then, lies In the east ern part of the North sea, where par ticularly deep water 100 to 500 foot off the coast of Norway, affords pas sago for the submarines. German U boats easily pass from the Baltic through the Cuttogut an International waterway Into the deep water found Just off the Skaw at the tip of Den mark, and thus Into the North sea, hugging thu shores of Norway all the way. A stopper In the Cuttegat would solve the problem, nnd the feat Is not Impossible, although England would ho greatly aided by the neutrality of Nor way and Denmark. Since under present conditions an actual blockade Is Impossible, the evil has been reduced by canalizing It. In other words, the navy Is forcing the U-bonts to take certain narrow and dllllcult channels, and keeping as close n wnteh as possible over these routes. But they cannot stretch nets deep enough to block the only exit remain ing to Germany. Perhaps the "new device" which American Inventors hope will eliminate the U-iioat as a factor In the war has to do with an effective stopper for this outlet. Syracuse Post Standard. Simplicity In Army Dress. The London Times reporter who met General Pershing and his staff on the occasion of their pnssage through the British metropolis was so much Impressed with tho sim plicity of the olllcers' uniforms that he described them In somu detail for the benellt of the Thunderer's read ers. Especially did hu remark that, compared to those of thu British nrmy, thu Americans' uniforms nro unobtrusive. This may comfort somo of our home folks, who hnvo Imbibed their Idea of olllclal dress from watching n parade of tho governor's staff, says the Omahn Bee. As a mat ter of fact, tho American army olllcer never has been given to excess In tho matter of dress, Whllo he has always been arrayed more dcllnltcly than was Guiigha Dhlu, ho has at no time sought to shame tho noonday sun, and some of his greutest accomplish ments hnvo been achieved at times when his apparel was least Impres sive. Genernl Grant received the sur render of Robert E. Lee attired In a battered service uniform, much worso for hard riding over dusty roads on that mcmnrnhlo morning, nnd many stories nro related of how General Washington went among his men un recognized because of tho lack of olll clul designation.

"Tho rain Is lenk lnglnllkofuryl" "Oh, Is that all you aru bothering about?" snarled thu landlady's voice.
