CHILD IS RESCUED Women Jumped From Win- dow to Escape GASOLINE EXPLOSION Caused Bad Blaze at Schwcinfnrth Rcsi- Tuesday Evening -Three in Fam Almost by Flames. A fire which for a short time threat- ened the lives of throe persons and caused a large amount of damage, oc. curred Tuesday evening about o'clock at the residence of Fred G. Schweinfurth, 905 Decatur sheet. Only the good work of the firemen prevented a more disastrous blaze. The damage which was done has not yet been estimated but it will prob- ably amount to several hundred dol- lars at least. The blaze originated in the kitchen and was caused when some gasoline saturated dress goods Delng ironed by Mis. Schweinfurth caught fire and this, with a small quantity of gaso- line in a dish pan nearby, caused a burst ot flame which filled that and adjoining rooms. In the room at the time were Mrs. Clubb, a sister of Mrs. Schweinfurth, and the latter's five- year-old son. The flames spread with such rapidity that all avenues of es- cape were cut off for the three per- sons except by leaving the room through a window. This was fiozen shut and Mrs Schweinfurth was com- pelled to break the glass. She and Mrs. Clubb jumped out of this win- dow to the ground, a distance of about four feet and then pulled the little boy out to a place of satety. That none of the three were burned is con- sidered to be a lemarkable case of good fortune. All four rooms on the lower floor were hadly damaged. When the fire- men arrived, the entire inteiior of the residence seemed tn "je one mass of flames, yet once firemen had the hose playing on Hie fire, it was checked in an short time. The woodwork, much of the furni- ture and house furnishings weie bad- ly damaged. The up-stairs rooms were not much damaged The Nos. 2 and 5 companies re- sponded to the fire alarm Over 1.200 feet of hose was laid The firemen think the blaze was caused the igniting of the gasoline used for cleaning purposes when the hot flat- iron was applied to the dress goods Much of the furniture was carried out. thus preventing a larger loss. Al- though the firemen had the blaze un- der control soon after fhe> began throwing water, they lemainecl at the scene for an hour and a half iu order to pievent the fire breaking out fiom any unexpected quaitei That another count oT ky's population will be undertaken very shortly, in accordance with publib sentiment over the low population figures given in the government census, wu made practically certain Wednesday morning by the conclusions reach- ed by those in attendance at a meeting in the office? of John C. Mauser, secretary of the Business Men's Association. Those In at> tendance were Mayor Lehrer, Safety Director DeWItt, Service Director Bing, J. C. Mauser, and City Board of Review Charles A. Lehrer and Paul Mil- ler. While definite plans were not decided upon Wednesday morning, it is almost certain that a count will hg takfth uhdw an ment to be decided upon at other meeting to be held at Secre- tary Mauser's office Thursday af- ternoon at 4 In view of tie general dissatisfaction over the government count, those pres- ent at Wednesday's jting'were una- nimous In the opinion that another count of the population would be well "worth while." With proper organiza- tion, it is the belief of those present Wcduc-day that the recount can taken in one day. Various plans wem proposed but more time was desired and it was thought best to hold an- other meeting at which other promi- nent citizens will also likely attend. The plan proposed which seemed to he most favorably received, ww ttuis of dividing the city into probab'y using the fourteen Toting pns- cinctn as a basis Each voting prtelnet would he divided into BmAUer these hitter ones to consist of any twA blocks each. Then it chief deputy wonM he named for each of the and as many assistants secured for each one of these as would be nefdefl, each assistant to have two blocks ti cover. Blanks would be supplied one. These assistants would take the name of the head of evfery family and the proprietor of every lodging within the confines of his boundary a-d the number of people who live in each place. That would he all that would attempted and would not require much, time, but (t would settle once for all, the question as to what is Sandusky's real popula- tion.

The matter of taking a police erngtta was also talked, over at Wednesday's meeting, but this plan was shelved when other and apparentlv better schemes were suggested. The police would of course, assist in every way possible. TRAIN RILLS SANDUSKIAN Special tn The Star-Journal: _ VALPARAISO, Ind., Jan. P.
