Funeral processions to wend their way toward the cemeteries, on Friday, bearing the battered and charred bodies of some of the 167 children who perished in Wednesday morning's fire in the Lake-vieschool, Collinwood. From 9 o'clock in the morning until dark, there was no cessation in the funeral corteges. Those who had no dead to mourn as a personal loss stood by in the streets with bare heads as the grim processions passed. One of the saddest funerals was ihat of the three children of Janito: Hirter, held jointly with the services for three other little ones. Mutterings against the janitor could be heard about the village, forgetting, as they did, that Hirter himself was walking with bowed head and bioken heart behind the biers of three of his beloved. A detail of police was placed about the Hirter home when the hour lor the funeral came. Fully 500 persons had gathered, but when the coffins were carried to the doorway the crowd spread and opened the way for them without protest or expression of hostility. Altogether there were fifty burials on Friday and Saturday the gruesome task was repeated. Sunday witnessed the last of the individual burials, and on Monday the Indies of all those who re unidentified were laid to rest with one funeral.

Cleveland, O Penned In narrow hallways, jammed up against doors that opened only inward, 170 children in 'he suburb of North Collin wood, were killed by fire, by smoke and beneath the grinding heels of their panic stricken playmates. The awful tiagedy occurred Wednesday morning in the public school of North Collinwood. ten miles east of this city. At 10 o'clock Wednesday night 165 corpses were in the morgue at Collinwood, six children were still unaccounted for, and all the hospitals and houses for two miles around contained numbers of children, some fatally and many less seriously injured. All of the victims were between the ages of 0 and 15 years. The school contained between 310 and .'125 pupils and of this entire number only about eighty are known to have left the building unhurt. It will be several days before the exact number of killed is known, as the ruins may still contain other bodies and the list of fatalities may be increased by a number of deaths among the children who are now lying in the hospitals hovering between life and death. The school house was of brick, two stories and an attic in height. The number of pupils was more than normally large, and the smaller children bad been placed in an attic of t:ie building. There was but one lire escape, and that was in the rear of the building. There were two stairways, one leading to a door in front and the other to a door in the rear. Both of these doors opened inward, and it is claimed the rear door was locked, as well. An attempt was made to have the children march out, but a panic ensued.

Miss Weiler attempted to stem the rush, but went down under it, and her body was found an hour later piled high wtih those of her pupils. Miss Fisk, another teacher, was taken out alive, but she can not live. When teh flames were discovered the teachers throughout seem to have acted with courage and and to have struggled heroically for the safety of their pupils, and marshalled the little ones into column for the "fire drill," which they had often practiced.
