Many will dismiss the Indict ment as fanciful, on account of the comparative weakness of the current which wireless telegraphy brings Into play. The answer to this Is that the current does not kill tho birds, but only confuses them, causing them to miss their way If the Marconi cur rent affects plg"ons, why not gulls!

The fire started on the third floor by an explosion of gaso line. Within 10 minutes the whole four-story structure was a blaz ing furnace. Hundreds of working girls were trapped on the upper floors by the rapid spread of the Are, their only escape being by way of two Insufficient fire-escapes. These were quickly overcrowd ed.

Trapped In a Tinder Ilox. Horrible as must have boen the tragedy In the smoke of that crowded upper room, what befell outside In the bright sunlight was more hor rible still. The building was furlouBly Inflam mable, and the first rush of flames had cut off all possibility of escape by the stairways. The elevators made one trip, but took down no passen gers and never came back. The only exit was by two narrow fire-escapes, the lower platforms of which were IS feet from the street. On these overcrowded and steep xtts, made hot by the flames from the lower windows, pressed forward a mob of women, blind with panic, driven by the fire, and the others be hind them. Out Of Windows To Death. A net had been spread beneath the windows, and the girls began to Jump. "Like rats out of a burning bin" was the way a fireman described that pellmell descent. They bolted out of the windows,' rolled up on the heads of those below them and cascaded off the fire-escape to the pavement 80 feet below. Borne of them stood in the windows outlined against the flames and Jumped clear; others from the land ings; still others from the steps where they stood. The air was full of them and they fell everywhere Into the net, 06 the necks of firemen, and 15 of them on the hard stone slabs. When the Jumping ceased there were eight dead in the street and the gutters ran red with blood. Eleven more were so badly crushed that they died in hospitals. Clouds of smoke and showers of burning embers spread over the city and rained down on neighboring roofs.

Brown did not wait to ask any questions. He turned in an alarm and then dashed up the fire-escape Already he found 40 girls at the fourth-story windows, some of them so dazed with terror that they hadn't the wit to pull down the sashes and climb out. Brown smashed In the window and began pulling girls out upon the fire-escape. He counted 40 that filed past htm. Face Scorched By Heat. The floor was far from cleared, but the heat had then grown so intense that the skin was beginning tc scorch on his face. He pulled him self up to the window for a last look In, but at that moment a gush of red streaked smoke blinded and almost smothered him, and he was forced tc drop Into the lee of the wall. "It was the most horrible thing I've ever seen," he said afterward "Tbe girls were dropping from every window. I never saw a fire spread so fast once It got started. Before we could get the girls through the windows on the fire-escapes the flames were licking the wooden sashes. " Fire Chief Astley laid the responsi bility for loss of life on delay In turn ing In an alarm. He says that five minutes were loBt In trying to fight the blazing gasoline with sand In a barrel.

Wolf, secretary and treasurer, broke Into tears when they were ask ed for an estimate of the loss. "What Is loss In the face of this disaster?" said Mr. Wolf.

"1 haven't anything to be thankful for on this day of Thanksgiving," passershy beard Mm mutter. With that he whipped out a revolver, and pressing the muzile to bl head, fired. He died Instantly, - -l N Washington, D. C. (Special). One of tho strangest facts observed In tbe forest fires which occasionally sweep over tbe woods of Northern Michigan and Minnesota is the burning of tbe ground. Falling leaves, bark and twigs and dying plant life gradually accumulate In the forests. The rains and dense shade keep the mass damp. Mosses grow on the surface of the de caying vegetation. The half-rotted stuff settles down and hardens. Trees spring up and their roots take bold in the peaty substance. . Then comes a season of drought, and tbe dampness slowly evaporates. A hunter or woodman or farmer builds a fire, or a railway engine drops a spark. Tbe dry surface of the ground is Ignited and a slow can cer of fire eats deep among the root of the trees, smouldering for weeks or months. Then one day a strong wind springs up. Trees, undermin ed by the fire, topple over, their roots throwing out showers of sparks and burning masses of Under-like material. Flames burst out In every direction, and like a flash, a forest fire is in full sweep. Trail Of the Fire Fiend. The forest fire which occurred in Northern Minnesota a few weeks ago broke out in many places at once, because many of theso smouldering fires were Blmpiy awaiting the gale which sprang up on October 7. In this fire about 1,600 square miles of country were burned. The thriving villages of Beaudctte, with a popula tion of 1,200, and Spooner, with 850, were swept out of existence in an hour. 'Hundreds of "homesteaders," carving their farms out of the for ests, lost their homes and saved their lives by lowering themselves into wells, or plunging into streams or ponds. Thirty lives were lost, and 3,000 persons were left homeless, with food, live stock, farm crops and machinery all gone. When tbe agents of the American Red Cross reached the burned dis trict they realized that winter was at band In this north country and that their greatest task was tbe swift con struction of a large number of shelt ers. It was a big Job, and it had to be quickly done. Here Is the man ner In which the Red Cross met the emergency: Two simple designs for bouses were prepared, of one and two rooms, respectively. These required only a few standard sizes of lumber, and tar paper took the place of shingles and plaster. Lumber was rushed in from Canada, the Secretary of the Treas ury at Washington having waived the customs duty on supplies required by the Red Cross. A half dozen car penters were hurried to the scene. Then "building bees" were organ ized, with one carpenter In command of each. A half dozen neighbors, with saw and hammer, would help Ole Olson build his house. Then all. Including Olson, would move along and build Hans Hanson's house, and so on. Building "Bees" Hammed. Tbe speed with which these houses were erected, where several "bees" were "humming" at the same time, wa startling. While this was going on the Red Cross was hurry ing Into tbe fire district from Duluth and St. Paul and Minneapolis big or der of door, window, stoves, bed ding, chairs, kitchen utensils and provisions. A rapidly a the little houses were ready they were fur nished and stocked up with food and the famine moved In. It wa a desperate race with win ter, and the Red Cross won. While the race was at Its swiftest there was not a busier spot between the oceans than this black and desolate stretch of country along tbe northernmost rim of Minnesota. Much remain to be done, but nobody is going to freeze or starve. DREXEL FLIES UP 9,970 FEET If -1 V IT' 11. . . iiitthes a new nor; a s uecord In' Bleriot Monoplane. Philadelphia (Special). J.
