NURSE RESCUES BOTH Mosquito Netting Had Caught Fire From the Gas Jet and Ignited the Bed. Pretty little five-year-old Helen Russell and her three-year-old sister Priscilla came very near being burned to death in their bed adjoining ^ie nursery of their home, No. 299 Academy street last even ing. They are the children of Mr. and Mrs. George <J- Russell. Mr. Russell connected with the American Tin Plate Company. Tlie two children were rescued by their nurse, 'Maggie Smith. The oldest child. Helen, could have made her escape, but remained npstairs calling for the nurse Maggie to come to their rescue. Mr. and Mrs. Russell were out visiting. The nurse tucked the two little children in bed shortly before eight o’clock. The hed was canopied with a mosquito net ting. A gas jet was left burning near by. It is supposed that after the nurse left them to go down stairs that they, commenced playing, and that in some manner they unfastened the mosquito netting canopy and a portion of it came into contact with the lighted gas jet. The nurse below heard Helen’s voice cry «ng:— “Fire! Fire! Come quick, Maggie. Baby’s burning.” Maggie ran up stairs and found the -Jutll filled with smoke, and-saw the blaz ' ing netting in which little Priscilla, in her efforts to get out of the burning bed, had become entangled. She rushed to the bed and dragged the baby girl out. The child’s night gown was afire. So was her 'hair. The nurse did her best to smother I the flames that were spreading abou the child with her apron. Despite her ef forts little Priscilla was burned, 'but not riously, about her forehead. The nurse supposed that the older child Helen had run down the stairway, notwithstanding she heard her say:—. “Save my dolly!” When she reached below stairs with little Priscilla she handed her to a neigh bor, who had seen the fire, ran back to get some money she had locked in a trunk and found Helen in the nursery crying:— “Where’s my dolly?” She grabbed up Helen in her arms and flew down stairs with the child. Meanwhile a citizen had turned in a fire alarm, and neighbors who reached the house before the firemen arrived had partially extinguished tlie( flames by throwing buckets of water/ taken fronj the bathroom, on the burning bed. No. 0 Engine Company soon reached the scene and put a finish to the blaze. f -♦ Hood’s Sarsaparilla builds up a broken down system. It begins its work right, that is, on the blood.
