Ill a fire you get very close down to
liumuu nature, observes the New
York Hun. The other night an apart
ment house took Are. There was no
time to be lost by the Inmates. A
mother, scantily clad and crying, took
out her too little children. A wife
buttonedheraelf In her long newmark-
etand run, leading her brown-eared
setter. A devoted son aud daughter
on the top floor dressed warmly their
helpless old mother of 80 and waited
to carry her, If need be, across the 8 re
escape. One woman put on a fur-lined
cape over her night dress and came
forth with a traveling bag filled with
silver. A young widow rau for her
new Sunday frock and took down the
departed one's portrait. Another
young woman left all her belongings
and fled in her night dress, blistering
her bare feet on the cinders, and ran
down the street calling for a carriage.
Another got her valuables in her seal
skin coat, and Hndiiig the smoke not
too threatening, fished out her long
tailed gown and the black silk sil
houettes of her grandfather and grand
mother, which she knew she couldn't
replace. One mau contented himself
with a bath robe, another dressed
himself in his four-lu-haud tie and
scarf pin. Mciciitiflo American.

The Irish hojie-rule bill is mak
ing slow progress in Parliament.
The opposition to it is strengthened
by some who in spirit are in favor
of Irish home rule but in the adop
tion of this bill see so many com
plications arising that if it were
adopted they believe the next con
dition of the Emerald Isler would
be worse than his present one. Un
just legislation always leads to
complex intricacies. England ie
not the only country which has
tangled things up in this way. The
onlv sure way out of such difficul
ties is to sweep the whole business
oir the statute books and com
mence at the bottom with just
legislation. . There are no tangles
in honest enactments.
