There were seven families in it and the only means of escape was by a narrow stairway. The fire was discovered at 3 o'clock by passers-by. There was not a sign of life. Te enter the house meant death. The only hope for those within was arousing them by shooting. In a few minutes there was not a window in the front of the house that did not con tain, the wild and frightened face of a man, woman, or child, framed in smoke, which poured forth in volume. By the fire escapes, twenty inmates reached the ground, descending in the midst of flame and smoke. Before the ladder truck arrived on the third story the fire spread over the entire rear portion. There lived Nathan Friedman, his wife Lena, three young children and two boarders, Annie Appleblat and Lena 1 Mitchell. Nathan Friedman was ar roused by the smoke and noise.

George and Levi Fried man and Lena Mitchell were still in bed when found. The peaceful expression of their faces showed that they had no knowledge of death that came so sud denly. Annie Appleblat was lying dead on the floor. Evidently she had been arroused and had stopped, donned her clothing and died before she finished. On the fourth floor Mrs. Killian and son were found dead in bed. Her grandson was dead on the floor, half way to the rear window. The damage to the house will not exceed $2,000. uSCEzBm TO GET OUT.
