The fireman went to bed with his companions a short time before mid-. night and he spoke to some of them before going to sleep. The noise ot his failing out of bed woke up the oi her' firemen and they at once gave the man first aid. It is thought he was dreaming, and was so restless that he fell out of the bed.

Taken to the Western Hospital yes terday morning by the patrol waggon of the St. Henry police station, Duffy Lefebvre, 43 years of age, of Glen Norman, has proved to be one of the most puzzling cases which the hospital authorities have had to deal with. The man. though semi-con acinus, seemed to have nothing wrong with him. At an early hour this morning he was still semi-conscious. The police said he was picked up on Dacourcelles street on Tuesday morning as a "drunk," but after spending a day and a night in the cells the officers decided the man was 111 tnd not under the influence of liquor. He was accordingly sent to the hospital. As far as could be learned about the man, he was a special constable, but no information could be secured as to who were his employers. His condition is considered as critical by the hospital doctors, DRAWING AND TRADE CLASSES.

BELIEVES BODIES IN RUINS OF FIRE Detective Continues Weird Search, Convinced Extent of Tragedy Not Yet Known NO WOMEN MISSING Mystery Regarding Party Who Failed to Return For Photographs Cleared Up Detective Constantin following up h.'s energetic search for additional witnesses and information about vie tlms of the fire which destroyed the Mystic Rill and part of the Scenic Railway, at Dominion Park a week ago last Sunday afternoon, when eight persons are known to have been killed, continued his work yesterday afternoon and evening. After the inquiry held by Fire Commissioner Latulippe, the detective went to Dominion Park and looked over the ruins once more. All the debris had been carted away, and every spot where the Mystic Rill once stood had been gone over carefully by the park employees. Every piece of cloth and buimt or charred wood was examined and nothing in the way of a body was discovered. At the south end of the plant, where the ground is considerably lower, a washout occurred when the water of the Mystic Rill flowed from its artificial canals and dragged debris, bodies and other material into the hole. It was here that the body of young Ferland was on Tuesday found buried in sand over a foot deep. It was in this hole also that the majority of the seven other bodies were discovered. In the course of his exam r.avon yesterday afternoon, Detective Constantin had in view the posslbi.ity that other remains might have ben buried as a result of thfi washout. He accordingly asked Mr. Hannaford, superintendent of the park, to have a trench dug along the south end of the place in order to place all the earth in one place, and give the searchers a better chance of finding traces of other bodies, should there be any. On the east side of the plant, there is a gully about seven feet deep and another washout occurred there. Here also Detective Constantin dug into the ruins and asked that another trench be dug so as to move the accumulated sand and. debris that was washed down into the hole. Several old papers and old cloths were found, and there is a possibility that parts of bodies may yet be discov ered. In the other parts of the ruins there are no signs of any bodies, and little possibility of any having been overlooked. , NO WOMEN MISSING. Detective Constantin reported last nieht that he had discovered the ad dress oft the two women who had their picture taken by a photograph er in the park before the fire, and who had not returned for the prints, Last night he went to the home of J. F. Howell. 380 Victoria avenue, Westmount, and inquired for Mrs, Howell and Mrs. Hutchinson, the two women whose pictures were taken.' Mr. Howell, however, said there was no member of his family miss ing. He, with his wife and his sis ter-in-law. Mrs. Hutchinson, of bas katoon, went to Dominion Park on the fatal Sunday afternoon. The two women and two children had their pictures taken. They were toid the pictures would not be ready for half an hour. Whereupon they , said they would go into the Mystic Rill. "We were through the Rill." said Mr. Howell, "and while there we saw no fire or even smelt smoke. The ride seemed to be long, however, and one of the boys remarked about it I myself felt uncomfortable and de cided I would never go into the place ttgaln. We came out, went to the photographers for the pictures. and he told us that they were not quite ready. As we turned from his booth we saw flames in the Mystic Rill. We were lucky to have escap ed the fire." A BOY MISSING. Detective Constantin on his return from Westmount, called at the residence of Mrs. Patrick Reid, 74a Mansfield street, whose son, he had heard, had been missing for two weeks. Mrs. Reid said the boy was the eldest of seven children. He left home a few days before the fire and had not been heard of since. When shown a picture of the boy who had his photograph taken at the park on the day of the fire. Mrs. Reid said it was not her son, so while Detective Constantin established that the two women and their children are safe, he has still to find the two boys who told the photographer they were go ins? Into the Mystic. Rill while wait Ing for their pictures to be develop ed. and who never came hack. No In qulries were received either at the morgue, the fire commissioners office or at,the photographer's booth vesterday In connection with the boys, and Detective Constantin would be glad to clear up this point.

While the management was doing everything possible to make the patrons still more comfortable, booking business was not overlooked. First choice has fallen on "John Ferguson," which has made the hit of the season in New York. "John Ferguson," is one of the few New York productions not affected by the actors' strike, but even before the strike, it had reached its fifth week, and it was necessary to move from the Garriek to the Fulton, where there we;e 400 more seats.

AT THE ORPHEUM. The attraction at the Orpheum Theatre next week, "The Naughty Wife," will be played here for the first time, although it has enjoyed long runs both in New York and through the United States and in London, England. It is a farce built upon highly .liverting lines. The story deals with a husband so engrossed In his daily work that ho neglects his wife, who, resenting what she deems his unwarrantable treatment, decides to amuse herself in her own way, and eventually falls in love with a man and decides to elope with him. By a mere chance the husband discovers his wife's Intentions, and sets himself the task of thwarting them, but not in the conventional way. Instead of tears, recriminations, threats of divorce and melodrama, we have deeds of kindness, tnougnttuincss. wants foreseen, desires anticipated. Everything we do not expect to happen does, and what we do expect does not. Eventually wife and husband are reconciled, and the play ends as happily as most.

S. MILITARY rank Special Army Titles Proposed for Pershing and March Ncw York Herald.) . W hen the bill now before Congress providing for the appointment to the permanent rank of "General of the Armies of the United States" of John J. Pershing and Peyton C. March with precedence or constructive seniority to the first named becomes law, it will mark an interesting innovation in our military history. For the first time at a single creation we shall have two Generals of the Armies (or Army) of the United States. These officers will rank with the Admiral of the United States Xttvir alin.iM Un -i .... -f-.j "" iiiav graae. wnion nasi not PXiHtpH clnio tha j ' miral Dewey, be revived. As far as allied services are concerned Generals Pershing and March will rank with a French Marshal or a British Field Marshal, and, like one of these will remain technically In active service as long as they live. Under the War Risk Insurance law of October, 1917, the President received authority from Congress to appoint temporarily, as full generals tne commander of the United States forces in France and the Chief of Staff at home. It would have been highly inconvenient for General Pershing to have been not onlv of lower rank than Field Marshal Haij and General Diaz, but to be outranked by some of their subordin ates. Foch ranks by himself as Generalissimo, so his case does not count. General Pershing Is to be reward ed for winning the victories In the field: General March for organizing the forces which made those victories possible. Quite naturally the public Is more Interested in the man who struck the actual blows than in a soldier who had to foresee every neea ot millions or men. Still the Allies have no doubt as to the value of the work done here, just as they have no doubt as to the work done in France and Flanders. So we should have none.

This is an error. He was formally appointed to that place by the Continental Congress on June 17, 1775; held it throughout the Revolutionary War, and resigned it on December 23, 17S3. nearly four months after the peace was concluded. Later the rank of Lieuten-ant-General was created for him. and he continued in it from 1798 until his death in 1799. In the meantime relations with France j had become strained. In -March, 179'J, Congress uassed a bill abolishing the grade of Lieutenant-General and reviving that of General of the Armies, and it became law. The chance of War having decreased. President Adams, who was jealous of his own authority as Commander. in-Chief of the Army and Navy, did not send Washington's name to the Senate, as was expected. The rank of Lieutenant-General lapsed with the signing of the Military 'bill of March, 1802, which provided for a peace establishment. In the Wir of'lS12 and the Mexican War Congress did nothing on the subject, but by an act of July. 1866, the title and rank of General of the Army was revived and Lieutenant-General U. S. Grant was appointed for life. On becoming President, in 1869. Grant resigned his armyrank of full General and William Tecumseh Sherman was promoted to the place, which he held until his death, in 1S91. when it lapsed. In the meantime Grant had been appointed General on the -retired list by an act of March, 18S5. This honorary office came to an end on his death In July of the same year. By a law of June, 1888, the grade of Lieutenant-General of the Army was revived and merged in the grade of General of the Army, "to continue during the lifetime of the present Lieutenant-General." The Jank of General was then conferred on Lieutenant-General P. H. Sheridan and ceased tc exist on his death, on August 5, 1888. After the disappear ance of Sheridan and Sherman there was no General until the law of October 6, 1917, came into operation to meet a temporary war. need.
