One by one the men were extricated, but ai the workers went down further they discovered new victims, and the horror steadily grew The forward part of the building still stood high and burning fiercely, and threatened every moment to fall and bury the rescuers but they gave no heed to the peril. On either side thu walls towered and teemed ready to fall, but there was no time to think of them. As fast as the became exhausted others filled their places, to there was not a moment of delay in thn labor of relief. Every moment was filled with an awfu suspense, for all were thinking of friends who lay buried beneath them. Names which men inquired after were passed hurriedly from lip to lip, and people bent down to scan closely tlie blackened and scarred faces. Persons who had friends among the fire- men, or among citizens who were supposed to huve heon in or near the fatal walls, became frantic as time passed and they could get no word. As the wounded were carried out of thc ruins they were met with embraces and tears of ,joy, but when the still, broken forms were borne nway, motionless and limp, then it was when thn full sadness and horror of the calamity came upon the waiting crowd.
