Tlie Cold Storage Building Formed Tbeli? Funeral JPyre—Surrounded by Flames^ Far Ahpire the Ground They Xeaped. to Jjeath While the Multitude Below Turned: Sick With Horror. WORLD'S FAIR GROUNDS, July 11 ~ Thirty firemen, with the' probability of some visitors and laborers at the;\World's fair, were burned to death at the fair grounds yesterday afternoon. At 5 o'clock the report placed the number of dead at 40 and.the seriously injured at 20. Thirty-five- thousand visitors saw fire- men leap from a roof 200 feet from the ground.and'with groans and shrieks.saw them dashed to fragments on the pave- ment. Women, with here and there a man, fell -prostrate like chaff before a c y »lone at the awful.sight. The firemen who did pot prefer to die more quickly that way remained undecided upon, the roof, iad the life partly crushed out of them and then went down, helpless and shrieking with the pain caused by the in- juries into a seething cauldron of flame where they were quickly consumed. In addition to the firemen, it i s supposed there were a number of visitors and work- men in the building when the fire broke COLD STORAGE BUILDING, out. It cannot be ascertained in the first rush for details if any o r all of them got out of the building. ' Where the firemen and possibly others lost ther lives was i n what was known as the cold storage building. It was 200 feet high and surmounted by a tower which ran up into the air another 70*feet. The fire started in the tower. It was a tiny flame at first, but i n a bad locality. Marshal Murphy, picked to' head the firemen at the fair, because of his bravery and firefighting ability, was quickly on the scene. The firemen got up i n the tow- er. They came down from the tower and, to the roof. The flames burst out sud- denly in the building below them. There was no way of reaching the ground, 200 feet below the roof of the burning Build- ing from which the 70-foot tower sprang. With death staring them in the face, : the men Stood on the edge of the. roof. Then one of theta jumped; He struck the earth; crusbed, bleeding and unconscious. Three of his companions followed his examplev preferring a death by the fall to the slow torture of the flames. Before, many of the men could decide to make the perilous leap all choice was end- ed. With a crash, the tower toppled and. fell and the brave firemen, who .had been standing upon it, were hurled with it-into the burning furnace below. With them, was Marshal ftiurphy. He escaped with slight injuries. • ' . . The cries of the wounded men as they lay for- a moment on the roof beneath the rim of the fallen tower could be beard by the crowd which had collected about the Trail ding. Before a hand could be lifted to aid the men there was a puff • of smoke and the- roof of the-warehouse fell in, carrying with it the wounded and half dead meii- w-ho had fallen with the tower.' •The fire department was almost para>- lyzed by the loss of its men. -The Columbian guards endeavored to keep the crowds bacik, but i t was impossi- ble. The excited multitudej.increased,to 35,000 persons-, surrounded the building at a safe distaneei- • - - . At first the flames were confined to the cupola at the tqp~ of the tower,, and they spread downward: swiftly, lire Marshal Murphy,\Whowasamongthe first at the blaze,-, ordered-his inettto the'iow of -long Windows near the top ot the tower and went up himself. There was great diffi- culty in getting the hose up or getting a stream to bear on the flames^ which all the while were spreading, downward; Big gtists of wind swept great sheets of flame down until the. fire finally caught at the wihotows -where the men were standing on fi foothold not more than two jfeet Wide. It was then that the most awful catastro- phe met the eyes of thethousands of moan- ing, horrified spectators who stood in. the avenues below \Watching the flames eating their way down to the men. ThejSdof men on the Window ledge were hopeless; Their hands were full of hose andtheyhad not noticed the flames so; close, ' Suddenly they were completely sur- rounded by fire, and burning timbers be- gan to fall from above. The poor fellows, huddled together as close as possible in one corner, hoping that some one below could reach the flames with streams of water or afford some other relief. But it i was ho use. f ' . They were stirronnded by fire, with the roof 70 feet or more below them and the tower ablaze nearly all the way down. Some Of the men tried to slide down the rope on which the hose had beep drawn. The first man who tried d£scen4^d\3iaif way tathe roof, where theflanjeafiewoiit and caught him and he dropped; doubtless dead before he struck the iroof. Another and another tried it till half a dozen had met the same fate. Then the others drew sMll closer to- |ether with the flames playing madly about their heads* '.'Knally the Beat Tbe- came 'unbearabie, aadl. one after 8991)1167 the poor fellQWSj.^ook: tothexope. They fell\ as the others haft' cfonei only farther, as the rope was burning'' shorter and ^hotter alt the while. As the last man on the window ledge ?vmng himself on the rope and was away ^e in the air the whole flaming tower 'crashed down upon him and the dozen or more victims whose lives had bfien crashed and btuiiedput on thft roof below- ' •_•: When: the first man jumped a scream of horror ran up from the crowd, women fainted and men fell on their knees and prayed for the souls: in the deathtrap. Gfoai after groan followed each leftp of the firemen. Noon*knew who was among the ill- fated firemen, but there before the eyes of thousands men werfe being burned to death and killed by mad leaps into space. A more terrible sight was never witnessed by a pleasure-seeking crowd. The excitemant was increased to frenzy by the arrival of the entire ambulance force. The clanging wagons rushed through the crowd. A rush call for every ambulance and wagon on the grounds had been sent out. The building contained restaurants and the roof was arranged for a promenade, while the big tower which-cost the life of the firemen was used for an observatory. The building had been on fire on two previous occasions and each time the flames were discovered in the tower. Chief Swee- nie had made a thorough examination of the structure and had decided that it was not properly built. Worlds Fair Notes.

How the Girl Employees In a Fashionable Hairdressing Boom Talk About the Cus- tomers—Women Who Try to Make Tip For Being Exacting. A young woman who^vas having herhaar dressed in one of the fashionable \ladies' haiidressing establishments\' of this city the other day overheard this conversation between two attendants who were disen- gaged at the time: \Oh Mary, did you see the pretty brace- let Mrs. Henderson gave me? You know who I mean, that stout, stylishly dressed woman with the 'very-long, black hair who always waits for me.\- ''--•-• ' *'Nb, I didn't see it, Jen.

Ki a butei It's a heavy Roman gold -hand, with a sweet littlePhain, and has five tiny diamonds and five pearls set.-in. .on.top.. She's a dandy, that Mrs. Henderson^'She sailed for Eurppeyesterday, youiiipw,;and. when she came in.the day ;before sjie. said she was.so sorry she couldn't :T take me alpng.. -I knowlwpntt find.ahother girl- tp;dressmy..ha,ir as wellas you doi'6he said, land you've been .so patient-withme.. I admit iget out pf sorts easily,ihd- some> tfmes I am very irritable, but then I always make it up to my maid : by presents. Why, I've given that, girl the most beau- tiful silk and satin dresses and Javely jewelry, but she- doesn't seem to appre/-. ciate themahit, and; when I-am a little cross with her she is as snappish as you please,-and if she i s dressing me.she pulls anditugs at my clothe's until my nerves are all.unstrung. I'd discharge, her, only she knows my tastes and;habits now, and it would be terrible tp. have to break a new girlin. Still,. I shudder to think,that«he will be/dressing my. hair every day for months. I know she'll pull it, and it won't look half so well as when' you ,do it, my dear,' Then .she gave me the-bracelet and a brand hew $5 bill'and said-she'd run in pr have ine come 'to her house the first day she got back. -I'm sorry she's gone, for she's a-regular customer, and she always gives me|l for a tip. I won'tget one like her again ina hurry, although she's got a temper like & mad hen's.- My, but she's cross sometimes! I feel sprryfor her maid/' \She can't/be any worse than that Miss , Wilson-I have. You know, the very tall blond, who looks as if she couldn't say a sharp -word-to saye her. -Why, sometimes she yells at\me just like a car driver, and that for nothingtoo. -It's all I.can do sometimes not to talk back, -I. get tip i n her roomSTrand, oh, they're, just todlovely . for anything, Jeh—and she closes the door sp. she.can?t be heard. Then she just goes _it..if : I .do.anything she doesn't like.'. She . finds fault with every thing. The irons are top hot.pr not hot enough. I've put up her hairtod tight or too loose. I've made it . top, wavy or not enough. She keep's me just-twice aslong as i s necessary, a,nd then I generally- have to fix. i t my own way any- how. If it-wasn'tforthebigtips and other presents she gives me, I'd give her a piece .of mymindi. I did ask her once why she . didn't try some other girl, and she said, $s -sarcastic' as/-you please: 'Oh, it's only a question of comparative stupidity. I might ;;get-oham&re stupid than ypu.'' Oh, I was : redhot then, \but she softened it by saying: .'There,,I didn't want to hurt your feel- ings. Do you like Jewels?' That was the . timeshe gave melthis diamond ring.'' The customer who; had listened to the . foregoing conversation looked at the speak- ers curiously.. Bothwere blonds of a rath- er showy type, though pretty, and both wore a-profusion of jewelry in the shape of riiigs and bracelets set with genis that were evidently genuine. Each carried a gold wjitch pinned to her waist in the style that was temporarily fashionable a year ago. The.girls.separated and walked to different -parts of theTOoih.-and the customer's at- tention. wasinvoluntariljr^^dra^wn to the girl Wh° was dressing .her own hair. This girl wks a quiet, modest looMhg hfunette.pret-'' ty and demure. She was not\ at all loudi but the customer. noticed • that even she wore seve'ral expensive rings and small\ dia^ mond earrings, and also carried a gold .watch, to \which a pretty chain was at^ tached. Being curious, the customer asked thegirl; - \p/omanydf the girls here get expensive presents-from .customers?\ . , \Oh yes,\ replied the girl; \we all get- them.froni some customers. .Of course np£ eyery customer gives them. Some 'dpn?t'; : give, anything; not even a small tip, but: there are only a few of these. I suppose 'pne customer in 25 gives handsome 'pres-\ .enf s. Those who do are regular eustpmers, of course. They have the same girls al- ways, and if the girls are busy when they epmeihthey wait forthem justas theitten , Wait fortheir favorite barbers in the barher shops.' Of course theWpmeh whp give ex- pensive presents don't give them often. iAt least there are very few pf'that kind. Spme ; ddn't give airy tips because they .dpn't like lip'give money, biif give costly ;jewelry on .Christmas or NewYear 1 ?. Some giveiiaps; .ahd the jewelry top.
