These doors fed are so arranged with cross bars that anyone leaning against them releases the doors and they immediately swing out. On account of Saturday night se, being cool, all of the exits were es closed, and just the minute the ex he, plosion occurred every exit in the ay- theatre was at once opened by the yr- crowd, and the theatre could have or- been emptied in less than a minute's er time, but many of the cool heads, who stopped just a few seconds to take ey, in the situation, remained In their il- seats in subjection to the commands er. of those who stood up and asked the iez audience to be seated. Ila A PLACE OF SAFETY. len This incident of Saturday night proves most conclusively that the ,? Folly Theatre is absolutely safe in r, case of fire. Even though the entire roof were ablaze, or should there be a nd fire next door, or even the rear of the building afire, there would be on. plenty of timne for every person who nd had standing room in the theatre to get out safely or the theatre emptied ny. I three times before there could be any uis danger from the fire. But. like all lo- other stampedes of this kind, the danger does not lie from the effects of the fire, but usually from the cow gh. ards or those of an excitable nature, len who do not stop to think and rush ean along to safety without consideration for their fellow-men. ith. The damtage dlone to the the tin, atre was absolitely nothing. Even ion- the water fro:m the sprinkling system did such little damage that no claim hell will be made fromn the insurance com Ipany. The only loss way the destruc ltion of a part of the Thoda Itara film. whioh. if it is never replaced, will oe- h a credlit to her future productions. Cro- Mr. Foto andti his assistants are to be congratulated for the admhirable mer, tannter in which the situation was tuth handled Saturday night. They were coIomplimented fromn every standpoint, eland if the Incident had been a re on hearsal it could not have been car ried on any better. and - --- - - - Ville ('LEAN UP WEEK liATER FIXED FOlR APRIL 21-9i. arest April 21 to 26 will be New Orleans official clean-up week.
