plans are suggested by which the lives
of persona In a burning lintel way t"
saved. The Ht. foula papers, not often
a unit on anything, agree that
the building should never ex
tend higher than Jihrec

aaMly reach safety outside of the hotel.
The elevators, those boon lo delicate

condemnation, serving as they do as

The Insufflcency ol lire escapes In large

S rvatcr attitude than that; their upjer
stories will not be cut oft, in the face ot
even such a culamity as the burning of
the Southern, and the value ot real es
tate in large cities will preclude
the Idea of building new
hotels on the two story plan. Elevators
will also continue in use; the hotel that
would ask its guests to walk up stairs
in place ot using one would soon have no
guests to accommodate. FJre escapes.rope
ladders, and other appluitice to secure
safe and speedy exit from a burning
building, would often tail ot their pur
pose just when the circumstances were
tbe most urgent. Women'and children,
nervous, frightened and helpless, would be
powerless to put them to the proper use.
The requisite unmber ol watchmen on
each floor of a hotel, with a system of
signals by which the existence of lire in
any part of the building could be com
municated instantly to all of them,
would in every case Insure perfect im

Some fifteen years since, a mad dog

by their owner. A short time alter
three ot his oxen exhibited symptoms of

Logan got as tar as Washington. where
he was seized with convulsions, and was

Nicholh government. The remaining
six are supposed to have qualified under
Packard. In thirty Democratic parishes,
including Orleans, all the parish offi
