Boston Daily Globe (Newspaper) - April 8, 1899, Boston, Massachusetts Real Estate... The price of a Brass Bedstead sits down very hard on your enthusiasm; i it is a damper on your spirits. But the price of our White Enamelled Iron bedstead, in the latest architectural design, with complete mountings and trimmings of burnished brass, is less than that of an ordinary wood bedstead. They have all the lightness, openness, strength and neatness of a brass bedstead. In durability they arc better. In beauty they are certainly the equal of the brass bedstead, since they make up in color what they lack in richness. From a color standpoint, the Ivory and gold is more effective than pure gold. The amount of brass work varies iritb different patterns. The designer has been requisitioned to beautify the Inamelled parts, and the iron frames fre now cast in forms of extreme beauty.

Strangest of a1!, the flame- jumped j two blocks from a burning house to an- ; other, skipping the millions of property and scores of lives between. In the sec-, oud house one life was lost and several persons were Injured. The fire started in the home of Wallace (’. Andrews, millionaire president of Hie New York steam heating company, who lived at 2 East 67th st. Mr Andrews and his entire family, besides six servants, lost their lives in the iwinkling of an eye. The two servants who escaped were badly injured, one probably fatally. While the fire was at its hight and all effort# were directed to the Andrews house, the sparks set fire to the house of Albert J 'litii. two blocks away the north. There one life, that of an obi retainer of the family, was lest aud seven more persons were injured. Remarkable were the coincidences between this newest horror and the Windsor one. The flame- spread so quickly thai escape was cut off. They started on the same fatal corner, the southeast, at 07th instead cf 47th st; the same rumors of incendiarism were spread and, strangest of all, right across on the same northeast corner was another Gould mansion, tile home of George Goj/d.

He heard an explosion. The next moment a great burst of light illumined t he corner above. “Eire! Fire!” yelled McKnight, going up the block on the dead run. The Andrews house at 2 East 67th st. just around the corner and opposite the Pig gothic house of George Gould, was Adams,    3    East    afire. Basement and    first story were a and    directly    to    m«aa of flames that shot halfway across the street and were curling fast upward toward the other stories. Not a soul was in sight. The block was deserted. Nobudy was in tile win-dows of the Andrews house, already ; doomed. Up to the front steps, three at a time, dashed the policeman. He rang and rang, but no one came. “Fire! Fire! Fire!” he shouted, pounding on the door with his night stick with {    all ids might. But    from within no j    sound came save the    crackling ut Hie flames. ; The drawing room floor was all ablaze now, and from the second story dows little jets of flame were leaping. For five minutes the policeman yelled and pounded, but within was only silence. Then from the basement came a dull roar, and the side windows of tile houses which looked out on Mr Armour's back yard fell out. At the same moment flames spouted from the front door of the Andrews house, and from the windows on the second and third stories. McKnight t ould stay no longer. Pursued h> flames that, leaped from the J root door he jumped down the steps. The house was ablaze from cellar to roof, and all iii five minutes.

It was the splendid home of V. ii Rothschild, 4 East 67th, and here the family were awakened. Oat into tile Street they hurried in their night clothes to be eared for by kindly neighbors. But in the Andrews house the flames were holding high carnival. Every window was alight, the roof was on fire, the flames were leaping tar out. into the I street and a fountain of sparks was j shooting high up into the air and then j northward, blown by the brisk south-I west wind that had full sweep across I Central park.

People poured out of the mansions in 5t h av, 66th st and 67th st in their night clot lies, ‘‘Where are the Andrews and St Johns?” was on every lip. But not a soul had seen them. Not a face had appeared at any window. It was a furnace within the splendid house, and now it was death to enter. A dozen streams of water were pouring on the flames in five minutes after the engines arrived, and the firemen were assaulting the lire from the roof and extension of the Rothschild house next door. And then the firemen could see—two faces. Two poor servants, hemmed In like rats in a trap; they were standing in I he one window and looking out on the rear of the fourth-story diagonally j toward the atli av house with which it I connected. For one moment In the lurid ! glare tile firemen saw the poor creatures’ agonized looks, Smoke was culling already out of the window. “Wait! walt!” cried the firemen, but a shriek was their answer. Annie White, the cook, had jumped. Slut fell on the extension connecting the two houses, and when the flames died away she was found thoro, unconscious and badly hurt. She will recover.

But while the women were Jumping, the firemen were fighting to get in from the rear. It seemed an hour. It was only JO minutes. They fought their way One of tile worst fires that ever visited Cambridge broke out iii a building owned by F. Ii Holton, on Harvard st, near the tracks of the Grand Junction railroad, last night about 11.30. Several manufacturing establishments, in the midst of which the Holton building was situated, as well as many tenement houses, were in imminent danger of destruction for over an hour, and that a much greater financial loss was not sustained is due to'the splendid work done by the members of the Cambridge fire department. The fire start' d presumably on the first floor of tile Holton building, which is occupied by Samuel Milanski, better known as Samuel Millen. Its appearance was remarkably sudden and, according to residents in the vicinity, the entire stieet front of the building was in flames before an alarm was*sounded from box 28. By the time the    first pier. of    apparatus reached the    scene the fire    ha . already crossed Harvard st to the south side and had seized the building of the Riverside boiler works on the south side of Hie street, A second alarm was sent in at once from box 28 at ll.lo, followed by one from box 17 at 11.50 and a general alarm ut 11.55, ’.'•filch called every available piece of apparatus In the city to the scene. Chief Hopkins    of Homerville and ''m‘    engine company I of    that city also    re- ”    .-•ponded. The flames were making headway on both sides of the street and seemed to be beyond the control of the firemen, who were driven back time and again. In an almost incredibly short time the entire three-story Holton building fronting on Harvard st was a seething mass of flame. The fire made amazing headway toward the rear of the building, and this portion of tile structure was quickly blazing furiously. The Riverside boiler works opposite furnished excellent fuel. Once started, it seemed as if the high wind would j carry destruction through to Main st and to the river front. The firemen could not get near enough to the blazing buildings on the Harvard st side to save either of these buildings. They were decidedly at a disadvantage. Chief Casey was not slow to recognize the extreme necessity of lighting it from behind the Riverside boiler works. Ladders were secured and used as battering rams, and entrance was effected into the shipping room in a detached building in the rear. A hole was punched through the side of the building nearest the fire, and several lines of hose W( re put through this, Hie men being shielded somewhat from the fierce heat. The galvanizing i room of the works was In great danger, : aud it was recognized that if the fire gained a foothold here nothing would j save the factories on Main st aud the J surrounding dwellings. I Frequent explosions told of the pres 1 ence of acids, which made the danger I greater, The heat was terrific. By this time the fire had gained such j headway on the opposite side of Harvard st, where it had started, that the ! three-story L of the Bay State metal works building had begun to go. The Albany and two large tenement blocks owned by J. Forristal, on me east side of Hie blazing Holton building, and occupied for the most part by Swedes employed in the vicinity, caught two or three timid on the roof, creating consternation among the inmates, who hurriedly packed what valuables they could and made a hasty exit. Trunks, valises and various articles of furniture were hurriedly taken to places of safety, and crying mothers and children were comforted by .neigh boro, who at this time did not know whether they, too, would not be seeking safety in a short time. Iii the J. of the Holton building the fire had taken firm hold. Here was situated a sawmill connected with tho Bay State metal works, where bathtubs were manufactured. Chief Casey superintended the fight ut tiiis portion of tho burning muss. Here Capt Garrity of engine 7, who was assisting in handling a hose, was struck full rn the forehead by the immense stream from one of the lines, which temporarily had gotten away from tile men. The force of the blow' seemed enough to have felled an ox. Capt Garrity for a few moments was stunned, He received a bad gash over the right eye. In spite of his injury, while still weak. he attempted to go back to his position, but was ordered to desist by the chief until he had sufficiently recovered. His wound was bound up, and he was soon back at the head of Ids men. Strenuous efforts were then put forth to save the one and half story building occupied by the J. C. Duff wagon spring Preparations Being Made for the Comfort of the Regiment at the South Armory—Transport Will be Met at Quarantine by Col Hyde, Quartermaster, USA, and State Officials—If She Shows a Clean Bill of Health There Will be Little Delay. These are anxious days for the relatives and friends of the 1200 men who compose the,8th Massachusetts, II S V, and who are coming to Boston on the transport Meade. Up to a late hour last night no word has been received from Highland light. of the passage of the transport, and it is doubtful if she arrives before late this afternoon, Orders were received at the quarantine station yesterday to hold the transport, if she should reach there during the night, until Col Hyde has an opportunity to confer with Capt Wilson and Col Pew relative to docking the vessel. All the preparations have now been made for the vessel’s arrival. As soon as the port physician examines the troops at quarantine, providing of course there is no sickness on board, she will pro cee i direct to pier 2, New England docks. Houth Boston, where the regiment w iii disembark. Immediately upon receipt of the news that th-- steamer has been sighted off the Highland. Gov Wolcott and Col Harry E. Converae w ill take passage on the police boat Guardian and pro end below to meet and welcome the returning soldiers, It is sa id. however, that no one will be allowed on the wharf, nor will anyone bo allowed to board the transport at quarantine, consequently those who have friends and relatives aboard will have to walt until the regiment arrives at tho South armory. Scores of men are getting things in order for the reception of the regiment , at tim armory, and last. night the last of tho 40 tables at which Hie men will cat their meals were set, wit ii a chair > for each man. i lie west side of Hie basement has lo en made into an Impromptu mess hall, with a string of electric lights over each table, and at the right of the entrance is the immense kitchen, in which several new ranges have been put up. and a sc( ie of cooks were busily engaged preparing tim first meal for the boys. The whole regiment will be accommodate d at one sitting, and judging by the immense amount of commissary store# that are already piled up there wilt be no lack of food. Tons of provisions were carted into the building yesterday, and for Hie first IO days a different bill or fare will be served each day. At the end of that time it will be repeated, and judging by I ontiiiucri on the Second Page. 44 The April Winds That Tell of    the ‘Violet’s    ‘Birth 99 Tell no sweeter story to humanity than to announce that the health-giver and health-bringer, Hood’s Sarsaparilla, tells of the birth of an era of good health.
