(Lexington Dispatch) A thrilling story of the rescue from sudden death in New York lust week is told in a New York dispatch pub lished in the Greensboro Record re cently. The methods nre of such an extraordinary nature that we reprint the story. It follows: A shriek stopped Timothy O'Leary in his tracks Monday night soon after leaving home at 81 Montgomery street on his way to headquarters at engine company 14. As he turned Into Clinton street the fireman saw hundreds of persons staring at a top floor window of a five-story tenement at 247 Clinton street. Nellie Callahan, nineteen, was clinging to the window silL Her face was puckered with the smoke and heat and terror of the fire whose flames O'Leary could see crawling up the ancient window rasing. Pushing away through the crowd O'Leary dashed Into the hallway of the house, shielding his face with his arms from the smoke that was roll ing out in great billows. An Instant later he reappeared, staggering. The smoke had driven him back. He knew he could not climb the stairs of 247, but he knew that he was going to get the girl off the win dow ledge some way. He ran to 245 Clinton street and up the stairs to the top floors where the rooms next ;to the burning house were unoccu ' pied. Throwing open the window nearest to that in which Nellie Callahan crouched O'Leary clamped one leg and one arm inside and projected the ! rest of his body across the four-foot space that separated him from the i young woman, managed to grasp her 'arm and swung her to safety. She was almost unconscious from smoke iand shock, however, and O'Leary had 'to carry her to the street. Before he had descended the stairs fire engines and trucks were cleaving a clamorous path through the crowd, firemen were running here and there with lengths of hose over their shoul ders and captains and chiefs were shouting the orders. One of the latter, Walter Jones, a battalion chief, stopped midway in a shout. In the window where Nellie Callahan had clung, her mother, Mrs. Katherine Callahan, had found foot hold and the fire was closer to her than it had got to her daughter. She was beating at smoldering spots in her skirt and was poised as If for a leap. "Don't Jump!" cried Jones and started to the rescue through 245 Clinton street, followed by Freeman Charles Miller, of Hooks and Ladder eighteen. At the foot of the stairs they passed O'Leary with his burden. As soon as he had deposited her In a safe place he turned and followed them. With Miller clutching one leg and O'Leary anchoring the other Jones swung from the window head down, la I It- Mtunit I n tr -vi t w r.M w.m h i in r - miM-L'm s j j Pleasure, Comfort and Satisfaction COMK FKOM AX ATTKU'TIVK IXTF.IUOft HKAI'TY IX Fl KXITI KK IMKS XOT XKCKSSAKII.Y IMPLY THK MOST COSTLY' MATKKIAI-S, HIT KATHKK iOOI Jl iKiMKXT IX SK LKCTIOX.

Dillon & Sons n rising in an ate like a pendulum as the two firemen heaved at his legs, j At the second swing he reached Mrs. Callahan's level and grasped her un der the arms. The reverse of the; swing dragged her from her scortch-, lng perch and the double weight sud-1 denly put upon the arms of the two firemen well nigh dragged them tOj the street below. i The weight was beyond their1 strength. They could not even hold it. Inch by inch they had to give1 ground and were themselves doubled j over the window sill when half a ! dozen firemen burst into the room,' seized the legs of O'Leary and Miller. and, with a "heave-ho" pulled the: whole human chain to safety. Meantime another woman had ap peared at a window across the top floor of the house, which is inacces-1 sible from any point a human being ! could reach. She was Mrs. Margaret . Thornton. The flame which beat j about her had driven her from the sill and she was hanging by her; hands over the street. Half a dozen firemen ran a forty five-foot ladder, which failed by a few feet of reaching the woman. Before 1 the ladder had settled against the side of the building a fireman was climbing It. He was William Hart inan. As he climbed he shouted en couragement to the woman and she held her grip until his arms closed about her. Then she gave way suddenly and her weight pulled the upper part of Hartman's body at right angles to the ladder. Twice he tried to lunge back and recover his balance. He could i not do it with that dead weight in j his arms. The woman was beginning : to slip from his grasp when John ; Scanlon, of Hook and Ladder T, ran ' up the ladder, and with Hartman's help swung her back to the rungs.

What you need la to get out and dig In the mud. The Inland One-Piece Pinion Ring produces a gas-tight elastic joint between the pifton and the cylinder walls. This gives greater efficiency and a large increase in the power generated! by the motor, with a relative decrease in the gasoline consumption, and in the amount of lubricating oil used. The Inland One-Piece Pifton Ring when contradted ia a cylinder tends to uncoil like a spring in a perfect circle exerting an even and gentle radial pressure at all points of contact. Its free ends being diagonally opposite, all openings are effectually sealed so that no gas can escape. l n 0 With the Inland Rinjt, the full force of the fuel consumed is converted into effective power. Being made of one piece out of the best grade of grey cast iron they cannot score or mar the cylinders. They need no pins for anchoring, and automatically take up all wear. They are easy to put on tne pi&ons and are guaranteed against breakage. They ho!d Lack the oil preventing: smoky exh&ust and fouling' cf the spark plugs. Inland P&on Rings readily adjust themselves to won cyGnder3 end produce surprising results ia replacement work.
