Bayes. It appears that Mr Bayes with his wife was sleeping in a room on the second floor, and they were awakened abod 5 o'clock by a smell of burning. Finding th^-botge full. of smoke, Mr Bayes at once raised an alarm from the window, and, together with his wife, proceeded to get their six children to the street below. It was then discovered that the outbreak had originated in a back room on the first floor, occupied by Mr Bayes' mother, Mrs Mary Ann Bayes, aged 69. Mr Bayes endeavoured to force his way into the room, but was met by a volume of flame and smoke. Both he and a police sergeant Subsequently attempted to rescue the old lady, and they were both singed by the flames, the police-sergeant having his eyebrows ,and moustache burned off. Fire engines were quickly on the scene, and the-outbreak was soon subdued. Afterwards Mrs Bayes was found close beside the bed, having apparently been suffocated.
