J. a MAYO,
" General Passenger Agent.
Astoria, Ore., June 25, 1906. 6-26-10t.
Not daunted by fire, smoke or water,
Astoria's firemen were overcome, and put
to ignominious rout last evening by a
swarm of bee.
These were not common bees, by any
means. The ordinary honey bee has no
terror for the brave firemen. They can
be brushed aside. HornetsJ. big black,
and buzzing; this was the enemy which
attacked members of the fire department
and caused them to flee. '
It all happened when an alarm of fire
was turned in from the residence of E.
V. Tallant at 682 Grand avenue. The
roof had become ignited from a spark
from the chimney, and for a time it was
feared tho house might be destroyed.
Luckily water was easily obtainable, and
the family with the assistance of neigh
bors managed to extinguish the flames
before the department had arrived.
The shingles, however, were smoul
dering when the firemen appeared on
the scene and in order to make the thing
safe, ladders wore raised preparatory to
ascending the roof and completely put
ting ont the fire. Charles Bartoldus,
driver of the chemical, was the first to
ascend, end just aa he reached the last
run., and was stepping onto the roof,
he accidently stepped on a hornet's nest
The air at once became alive with the
furious insects. They located the de
stroyer of their home, and attacked him
with rim. Bartoldus yelled and beat
the air frantically endeavoring to re
treat down the ladder at the same time.
The honets crawled down his neck, and
settled over him so quickly and thickly
that he forgot to crawl and jumped to
the ground. He was painfully stung in
more than a dozen places. Other firemen
volunteered to make the ascent but
were beaten back in quick succession by
the bees. It wa some minutes before
anyone succeeded in getting oh the roof.
and then it was only accomplished by
moving the ladder to another spot. The
efforts of the firemen furnished much
amusement for the crowd, who offered
all manner of suggestions and encour
agement to those fortunate enough to be
stung. Those who received the hornets'
lind attention besides Bartoldus, were
