To the average man these questions would be difficult to answer, but there is o:ie man who is as well qualified as any living- person to tell how it feels to face one of the most horrible deaths known. And thai, too, for the sake of others. The public are .always intensely interested iu the motionsof a hero. That man is Officer Robert Bedell, of the Brooklyn police force. He is a hero every sense of the worrl. From out of the "very jaws of death he firm snatched human lives, and as the fir« fk'.nd reached out its hot, encircling: amis, he has borne -the rescued one w safety. Policeman. Bedell has had many terrible experiences; decidedly-owe than falls to the common lot o£ even a policeman. While the Brooklyn force, like that of many cities, numbers among its bluecoats brave men, occasionally one, by some signal' act of bravery, leaps at .1 bound to the front. True heroes d^ not sing their own praises, and it was with great difficulty, that Mr. Bedell was induced to describe his emotions when be plunges without atnomenVs hesitation into a flery furnace, holding his own life cheap that others Bioy be saved. Firemen are valorous, but as they are paid and trained to fight the flames, the-r bravery does not merit the attention that befalls a man who of his own volition makes a rescue. Mr. Bedell's greatest peril came not long ago, -when he ran through fire and smoke -to a'sec- ond story room, across the blistering floor, and rescued a tiny child, forgotten by her fear-distracted mother in the horror of a .midnight conflagration.

STRANGE ACCIDENT. Hpnw «et» Ita T»ll FMtened to.the Trunk . ot » Tre'e. One of the most remarkable accidents that has ever haippe.net! 'in' the field to stock occurred on the farm of Ephraim Willey, of .Troy township, -0., and h? will lose one of. his, best horses. The beast was out'in-the field grazing with a number of other horses kept for farm use, and It'is thought that it backed n» to a tree to scratch its tail,.as horses do sometimes: When in that position the-horse switched its toil about tho .tree and the hair caught.in the bark. The horse w.as fastened in.that position like a vise, and was.in n horrible condition when found. It had pulled so long and hard that its tail was partially .pulled out by the ;roots. ' Mr. Willey does not know how long the horse 1 was in thfe terrible'position in .which ho was found, as .the .field .in which they were grazing.was supplied .with all .that Is needful, nnd.no attention to'stock".is! required fpr : supplies The hbrae ; was a valuable one, and will be a great loss to Farmer-Willey.'

He reaohed' safety just as that floor made treacherous by fire earoe crashing almost on his very heels. "How does it feel ?" said Policeman Bedell "well in one way you don't -feel anything, and still you do. I mean that at a time like that a man is so excited he doesn't realize what he is running into. "Of course you see the flames lapping 'up everything-'in sight, and seeming to leap out toward you! You fccl.thc burn- iii"- heat, and your eyes are blinded, and your breath half stopped by the eloncto of smoke that, roll .higher and higher until they surround you on all sides. Cur. you are, after all, only half conscious of it at 'the time. It is afterward, when you realizethe scene, thatitscems more distinct, 'and the full danger is realized. . ' "It is funny that a. .person's mind should act so much more, quickly and sharply in times of danger and peril. But it always seems to—mine does at least. And you notice sm'all things. I know "the other, night when I 'went after littte seven-year-old Fannie Walsh nt Mo. 1307 Bushwick avenue, as soon as J picked her up it flashed into my mind hat I had better cover her head with omething to prevent her being choked n' the smoke. I burried to the wash- tand and grabbed a towel, soaking it n the water pitcher. It didn't take ten •seconds todoit,.butlnthoseten.seconds my mind had time to note a picture langing over the washstand. A picture of -a deer wading, into a. lake. . I envied :hat deer! I never thought of that pic • ture again' until I saw one like it yesterday in a shop window. Then I remem- iered where' It was I first saw it.' "But it IB-all over so quickly that you don't realize' much until it is past. I know the other night, 1 don't recall hav - nc felt any fear until !• he.ard the floor crash behind me, when 1 put'my footon the ladder. It must have been pretty hot as T crossed back, for the soles of my shoes were badly scorched. But I didn't do anything much after all." This police hero is alliletic and takes a pardonable pride in his prowess. It is well that his muscles are of steel, for tarrying frantic people down ladders needs sinew and brawn. KAKfc PHliNOMENON. Llffhtulnc I'hotORrftphu a Picture on th« Body of Its Victim. Lightning played a queer prank-wben it killed William Campbell, of Bryn Mawr, near Yonkers, N. Y.,-the other night. Surrounded by his children, he was'stricken down in the doorway of h is home by a bolt that had uprooted a small shrub in front of him. He fell over dead on top of his ten-year-old son. who was^play^Skyliisside. The child was uninjured, but when the father's body was examined a perfect photograph of a branch of the shrub was found in vivid red on his breast. It was not until the coroner. Dr. Miles, viewed the body that the photographic ^ phenomenon was discovered.

' "Why, I believe this is a case of lightning- photography," remarked 'the doctor Going to the spot where Mr. Campbell had stood he looked at the door.
