When Surface reached th top floor th
smoke was so thick that he was com
pelled to crawl ott bis hands snd knees
to save himself from being overcome.
He did not. falter, however, and all ef
th guests escaped with most of their
effects. The Qulmby hotel ' was not
burned down. Only about 11 feet of the
south end was destroyed snd all of th
