stove-pipe in the house at 908 West

they discovered there was more smok
than fire and quickly restored matters.
No particular damage was recorded.
Tho alarm from Box 322, corner of
Tenth nnd Luzcrno streets, at 2
o'clock yesterday afternoon, was tho
result of a rather disastrous Arc In tho
double house at tho corner of Oxford
nnd Tenth Htreets, owned by Bert
The house was occupied by tho fami
lies of Arthur Samuel and Frank Mus
ters, both of whom suffered from tho
Dames. The cause Is attributed to chil
dren playing with matches. Both fami
lies worn burned out, and neither car
ried any Insurance. Tho house was
somewhat damaged but is fully In
sured. Permanent Man Lewis Parry, of the
Chemicals, heroically rescued a. 4-yoar-old
child from the Masters home Just
In time? to save its life. Tho child was
the only one In tho house at tho lime
and was asleep on a couch when the
tiro broke out.
As soon os tho child's danger was
made known to tho firemen, Parry
rushed through fire and smoke, and
carried the little one out to a pluee of
safety. The boy was somewhat over
come by smoke, but soon recovered.
Parry Is one ot the most fearless and
capable men In tho department.
