before 12 a telegram was received in Montreal imploring assistance fills could not be given without consult ing Mayor Cireuier who was found at the IJiimpte du Peuplc The mayor at once ordered engines to be dispatched One en gine and two reels were soon started and they were quickly on the spot but might as well have remained ut borne for in five minutes they had exhausted the water supply TUi fire

roof in the renter of eiuh tower When the liremen arrived thy dome of OHO tower had just fallen and the llames were bursting out every where St reams were laid on and while t hey lasted some good was doue but that was for a very brief space and then the horror of the situation was revealed OreuiHul siyhts it the AVimlows Meant line beds furniture and utensils were being thrown from windows and streams of illclad men poured out of the eastern wing not oue male patient being left Among the women it was different The less hopeless cases were treated in the lower wards and those persons were re moved without difficulty but from the upper wards where the violent patients were eonfmed there came the wildest screams as the unfortunates resisted the efforts of the nuns in making their escape At the windows the maniacs could be seen peering through the bars jabbering until they were enveloped in the flames and compelled to release their hold and drop back into the cauldron TwentyFive YlcLlms in One Gronv When the firemen found they were pow Jrless to save the building they turned their attention to the inmates and burst in the doors with axes Chief Bennett says it was such a sight as no fireman ever before witnessed Iu one hall lie entered there were twentylive patients and at his approach they huddled and clasped them selves together like a pack of beasts He seized the nearest But

unconscious In lveiul of the Escaped Lunatics The patients who had fled from the burn ing building wandered about aimlessly clad in scant garments many of them ver itable Ophelias iu their fantastic dress When released many of them wept for joy and bounded like deer across fields to the woods Patients of both sexes escaped and though a cordon of police was formed not all the patients were included and horribly suggestive rumors were brought in by the people who came through the woods to the scene of the diaster A new dread has come upon the inhabitants from the presence of so many escaped lunatics and they will count themselves fortunate if they are not visited by a series of such crime as only madmen cam devise Latest Estimate ot the Dead The deathroll Is now estimated at
