HOTEL wur (TO
IN INTENSE (011N
Inmates of the Foley hotel who were
roomid on the first floor last night, were
about 12 o'clock thrown into a stage of
excitement. Shortly after midnight sleep
ers on the first floor, were awakened by
cries of "Fire." Naturally all rushed to
the doors, where clouds of smoke met
them. Many grew excted and more
screams of fire were emitted. Without
dressing the suddenly awakened sleepers
rushed into the halls, which were by this
time, so full of smoke that it was impos
sible to see one's hand before him. But
the excitement and smoke made it impos
sibls to find an exit and they were soon
running into one another. The screams
of fire attracted the boll boy from the
downstairs office to the first floor and he
! it was who put an end to the pandemon
ium which was re'gning 0n that floor.
On reaching the head of the stairs he
couid see nothing, but with full possession
of his thoughts, rushed thru the hall in
an endeavor to locate the fire. During
his run down the hall he collided with an
obstabie. which ultimately proved to be
! the cause of the commotion.

What he accidently found was a tin keg,
filled with burning hay. It was but the
work of a few momeuts to eject the blaz
ing keg thru a window. The only solu
tion to the peculiar accident is that some
individual with an eye for joking, had
filled the can with hay, partially covered
it, and igniting it on reaching the first
floor of the hotel. He must then have
made his escape thru a window or fire
One gentleman, who was sleeping on
that floor, was awakened by a heavy
knocking on his door. The knocks were
followed by conversations between three
voices, but he was unable to distinguish
the owners of them. About a minute
later he heard feec scampering down the
hall way. Tee cries of fire followed, pre
sumably from the igniters of the can of
hay. Others wore awakened by the same
cries and the panic was but a tew secouds
in coming on.
The guests were ultimately quieted, the
smoke cleared and all returned to their
rooms, badly scared and feeling that some
one had carried, what is deemed to be
joke, too far.

phatic ducts, a complication of ligaments
blood vessels and viscera. To untAru!.
