Tho editor has boon impressed this week at a trial of local Interest with tho fact that tho man who makes monoy in a community bus a duty to perform to that community. It may bo that ho has niado his money by his superior biiHinoNS ability, and that ho would h'.tvo done as well miywhoro. That does not, alter tho caso. If his gifts are great his responsibilities are equally an great. No man was placed on earth for tho solo purpoHc of making monoy, anil tho man who has this as his ideal had hotter never have boon born. It iu not an act (if charity, but tho performance of a simple duty for tho man who ban made money to pans a little of it on for tho bonolll. of the Community, oven though ho nevor oxpoctn to MOO a dollar of bin contribution hack. Colling; wood Disaster. Penned in narrow hallways, jammed up against doors that npr-ned •inly itiward, 170 children in the •mhiirh of North Collinuwood, near i ;ievolanrl, Ohio, Wednesday were killed by lire, by *-m<ike and be neat.h the grinding heels of their panic-stricken pi ay ma ten. The terrible tragedy occurred Wednesday morning in the public school of North Col ling wood, ten miles ftJift of Cleveland. By night all the hospitals and bonnes for miles around contained numbers of children, Home fatally and many le«s wr- lonsly injured, benldes the 170 in the morgue. All of tho victims were between the ages of (! and 15 years. The school contained between 300 and 325 pupils, arid of this entire number only about eighty are known to have left the huildinu unhurt. The HcboolhoiiHO was of brick, two stories and an attic in height. Tho number of pupils was more than normally large and the smaller children had been placed in the attic of the build Ing. There was but one fire escape arid '.hat was in tho rear of the building. There were two stairways, one leading to a door In front, the other to a floor in the rear. Both of those doors opened inwards and it is assarted the rear door was looked as well. When the flames were discovered, tho teachers throughout seem to have acted with courage and self-possession, and to have struggled heroically for tho safety of their pupils and marshalled the llttlo ones Into columns for tho "fire drill" which they had so often practiced. Unfortunately, the line of march in this exercise had always led to the front door, and the children had not boon trained to seek any other exit. Tho flames spread with such terrific rapidity that, within thirty minutes from the time tho fire was discovered, the school house was nothing but a few blackened walls surrounding a collar filled with corpses and debris.' Tho firemen dashed into tho blazing building, and with rakes, forks and shovels and their bare hands, worked in the most frantic manner, with the hope of saving a few more lives. They were unsuccessful, for none was taken alive from tho ruins after the floors collapsed. Fragments of incinerated limbs, skulls and bones were found almost; s at ; every turn, and these things were piled together at one side of the building. Bell Ringer*.
