NUNNERY HILL FIRE DESTROYS A LANDMARK. Firemen nesene Some Resident of Haffertyn Row Others Eopf. Fire completely destroyed Rafferty's Row, on of the landmarks of Nunnery Hill, last night, and rendered homeless - more than a dozen colored families. Several persons narrowly escaped with their lives. The building stood at the head of Henderson street, at the extreme apex of Nunnery Hill, running back lOO feet to Fountain street. There were two stories in front and three and a half In the rear, and the whole of the big building was a mass of flames before ,the first stream was turned on. on account of its inaccessible situation, the firemen having a hard time to reach It. The explosion of a lamp in the rear apartment, occupied by Mrs. Annie Martin, started the conflagration. Mrs. Martin was overcome by the smoke before she could give the alarm to any of the other inmates, but succeeded in making her way to Henderson street and there streamed for help. It was later discovered that she had received a number of severe burns, and she was removed to the Allegheny General Hospital. Policeman Williem Henry, Clarence Hutchinson and Patrick Welsh hurried to the scene and helped a number of the tenants from the burning structure. Mrs. Jennie Boyd, a widow, tnd her five children; Mrs. Jennie Jones and Hugh Hutchinson were rescued with difficulty, being carried from the upper floor by the officers. For - half an hour after the flames were discovered the firemen strained every nerve to get at the fire, and finally succeeded In carrying a line of hose almost half a mile up the hill from Federal street. The property was owned by James Iafferty and was valued at J5.0OO. The loss to Inmates amount sto about $2.0O0. The Knoxville fire department was called out at 1 o'clock this morning to extinguish a small blaze at the car barns of the Pittsburg Railways Co. at Carbon street and Penn avenue, Mt. Oliver. Wires became crossed, burning some of the Insulation, but the damage was slight. HIGH SCHOOL ARBOR DAY. Pupils Will PI n t Trees on Centennial of Agannis'a Birth.
