the traveler comes upon the camps ol

gatherers are called.
The time Df operation is lust at tho be-

is carried through coniuits of bamboo
into ci ty bowls. When these aro full, a
bandage is tied over the wound to pre-

Th vapour instantly coagulates the ca

It was the most fierce
S and disastrous that
has occurred in the great
thoroughfare for fifteen
years. In one and a half
hours despite the sending out ot a general
call for fire apparatus four immense business
houses were destroyed and other seriously
damaged. The total loss is estimated at
$2,o00,000. About half an hour after the fire
waa discovered an explosion occurred by
which Assistant Foreman Michael Reilly, of
hook and ladder No. 8, was fatally injured
and several others mora or less hurt. Th
fire was discovered at 5: IS o'clock by an of
ficer of the Eighth precinct in the basement
of the building 549 and 531 Broadway, occu
pied by Henry Rogers. The officer Imme
diately sent out an alarm which was followed
by a second and third, and finally the fa
mous "three sixes, or general alarm, called
the engines stationed south of Fourteenth
street. The arrets in the vicinity of the fire
were soon swarming with engine and trucks,
Chief Shay, with his assistants, at once
took command, and directed the various fire
captains and companies in their attack on
the flames. The flames made rapid progress,
eating their way to the roof within a few
minutes, and driving the fire laddie on to
th adjoining building for safety. They saw
that the structure was doomed, and immedi
ately turned their attention to the surround
At 7:15, just one hour and a half after the
first engine arrived, the building was totally
gutted, and the flamea were mounting high
above the roof. Next flames were seen to is
sue from 553 Broadway. They first made
their appearance on the fjf th floor and spread
' A few minutes afterward a terriflo explo
sion occurred, followed by a shower of bricks
and iron which fell into the street. Assist
ant Foreman Reilly was caught under the
bulk of this falling debris and fatally hurt,
Chief Bhay had a narrow escape. A piece
of iron weighing at least 150 pounds fell at
bis feet Several chiefs of battalions who
were standing around him had narrow es
capes from falling missiles. A number of
firemen, however, received trifling injuries.
The explosion sent the sparks high in the
air, and they fell in showers on the adjoin
ing property, while the flames burned
fiercer than before. Boon 547 began to
burn. At (i o'clock this building was a mass
of flames from cellar to roof, and the upper
floors of 545 were burning, but the flames
had been checked at 553, aud in the rear of
the burning buildings which are numbered
lid, 118, 120, 123, and 124 Mercor street, the
flames were kept from spreading to the
buildings on the opposite side of the street.
The interior of the double building
and 551 Broadway was like a glowing
furnace, and the iron front bad tu'ged
dreadfully. The firemen were ordsred to
stand clear. A few moments after th entire
front came down with a crash. From this
point on the firemen slowly but surely gaiued
headway on the flames, and at S o'ciock, a
little more than two hours after its breaking
out, the fire was fully under control.
Assistant Foreman Roilly had bis legs
crushed and received internal injuries from
which, the physicians said, it was impossible
for him to recover. The firms who lose by

for crippled children, at Lexington avenuo

the children escaped uninjured, but the cook,
who was asleep in the room over that in
which the fire started, was suffocated. Tlie
fire was caused by a cigar thrown away
