eager spectators followed tlie fire
department to the scene atid'some of these
formed au effective bucket brigade to
aid the firemen. The Lcnape engine was
throwing water in six minutes after the
fire was discovered. The mayor and
Mrs. Herbert had gone out for a drive
early in the afternoon and knew nothing
of the fire until they reached home and
found two or three rooms nothing but a
blackened mass. ,
The fire was discovered by Mrs. Wil
linm Keatley, who lives near the mayors
residence. She interrupted lier hus
band's afternoon doze by a good shaking,
and the brave man rushed from the house
coatless and shoeless. He climbed up a
Tain spout, jumped over two or three
roofs and entered a rear wiudow, closing
the window after him to prevent any
draught. Finding that the cloak closet
was all ablaze he sent out the alarm.
Patrolman Morgan was the first to re
spond and t he t wo men worked bravely
but could do little in the dense black
smoke. In a few minutes the roofs were
overed with firemen.
A case of books witli $800 was miracu
lously saved from destruction,
work of the fitemru and neighbors alone
saved the building and probably the en

Every article of the mayor s clothing
was destroyed except what he wore.
Laet night he and Mrs. Herbert removed
to the residence of ex Treasurer William
Herbert where they will probably reside
until the repairs and refurnishings are
completed in their own home.
Advancing Single Tax Theories.
A Baltimore man interested in the

"Progress and Poverty" and "Social
Problems" for distribution among the
public libraries in Maryland and Delà
ware and copieB of these works liavo been
forwarded to the New Castle library.
The gift, it is said, is opportune as the

when a premature discharge of his gun
in the house blew off the thumb of his
right hand, making him a cripple for life
in the most useful member of his body.
His relatives in the house hearing the dis
charge of the gun were afraid for a
moment to enter the room aud called
loudly to the men outside to come In and
help The young man soon came from
the room and assured them that hiB
wounds were not serious and he was at
once taken to the railroad station and
brought to this city. Doctors Black aud
Tybout performed the operation of am
putation, although the young man
dreaded to see the knife put upon his
hand. He has been using the gun since
boyhood and has always exercised , the
greatest care in handling the weapon
and it was a great shock to his relatives.
He Is now recovering at the residence
of his uucle, ex-Chieftleorge Williams. ^
