SOLDIERS BURNED OUT.
The Cottage Occupied by the Salvation
Army Destroyed by Fire.
The flro engines were railed out about
6 o'clock last evening to a fire at 121
Bth atheet, a cottae occupied by the
Salvation Army staff, and owned by W.
W. Parker. Before the flrsti engine ar.
rived tho whole upper story of . the
buifdlng was in flames, and the lower
rooms where the Army people lived,
were filled with smoke, so dense that It
was almost Impossible to move about in
them. There was no wind blowing at
tho time, and the place where the flro
ftat-tcHl being very tight, the flames
confined themselves to the Inside of the
building, which was completely eaten
out In tho upper story, and the roof
burned away before the fire-laddles got
the upper hand, which they did in
short order, there being four streams
on the fire.. All the furniture, with the
exception of one bedstead; was saved,
also all the clothing belonging to the
-Wx-uiMints. The origin of the fire is
not known, but is supposed to have been
tarted by some children who were play
ing In the empty rooms overhead. Lieut.
Quant states that the first intimation
she had of the blaze, whs while they
were at supper, a man came rushing
in, crying fire, and a moment later,
flames bursted through the celling over
head. Considering the short time they had
before tho fire drove them out of the
house altogether. It Is remarkable, the
large number of things that were moved
ut. The damage to the building Is
covered by Insurance.
