Lake, was sick in bed in a room on the second floor, and Mrs. and Maggie Lake were engaged In housel hold pursuits in a back room. The two men were in their workshop on the third floor. No one beard the warning cry, und the first intimation they had of the flre was a rush of dense black smoke which up the stairway and dumb-waiter shaft Young Uenry Luke dashed down to the second floor and tried to gain the street by of but was driven back by tho smoke and flames. The fire had now sprtad throughout the lower room, the oils ware burning fast and furiously, and tongues of flame were up the front of the building al- most to the roof. Lake ran back, and telling his father to take Mm. Lake and Maggie Lake to the roof, he burst into hii sister's room.

The Ore- men had not irrived when they reached the housetop, but a number of persons had collected ia the street from the neigh- borhood, and the people on the roof shouted to them for help. It was then that Policemen Poh'er and Fell dashed thrnuRh the crowd, and, tear- ing off theii belts, hats and coats, rushed into the acljoiuiug house, and, with ladder in haad, rhmbttl to the back building The ladder was found too short, however Pohler, nothing daunted, inomurd the top round, and sping the ramspnut, swung liimsglf clear of the ladder It was a (luring act.

Pohler then jumped down himself and the entire party rc.iched terra flrma in safety. C.ipt. Auld highly complimented his two policemen. Ctovernment Clerks at Washington Pre- to Go Home to Vote. WASHINGTON, Oct. bag bien great political activity among department clerks here for the past twelve months, and the probability is that four or five thousand of them will go home to vote at the coming November elections, A score or more of Republican state associations have bei-n organized and their members will probably go home en masse to vote. Never was greater activity and energy put forth in getting every qualified He- publican voter home for the November elections, and the exodus promises to tie something unusual. Thousands of will be polled in distant states that have not teen cast before in years. So does this exodus promise to be that the railroails have reduced the rates for on- round trip to a half fare to all points east of New York and west of Chicago; these'rates being allowed only to voters holding certificates of membership in state association. Maryland being close to the national capital, will probably attract tha largest number of visitors of her native sons and voters on election day. Five hundred members of the Maryland State associa- tion promise to go home and vote, and probably many more Maryland Repub- licans not members will go home. Tn Syracuse of two conches.
