Mrs. Burnett's house, out on South
Orange street, was not so badly
burned as was indicated by the hur hurried
ried hurried account sent in by one of the
neighbors : immediately after the fire
yesterday. About three hundred dol dollars
lars dollars will repair the damage to the
house and most of the furniture was
saved. At this writing, we have not
been able to learn whether the house
was insured or not.
The fire department did good work
in putting out the fire. The house is
about two hundred yards this side of
the hospital' and nearly a mile from
the fire station. The fire started in an
unoccupied upstairs room and had
worked up into the roof and gained
considerable headway before it was
discovered. : ;v;' vv"
The chemical fire engine has been
out of commission for some days and
the firemen have to depend on the big
truck. When the fire chief found
where the fire was, instead of driving
directly for it, he steered the truck
down South Lime street to the fire fireplug
plug fireplug by Col. Martin's house. Here he
dropped off a man who coupled the
hose to this plug, and the truck went
on unreeling the hose and plowing
thru the ; heavy sand between v Lime
ad Orange and on down Orange to
the burning house, a full three hun hundred
dred hundred yards. At the house, the truck
cut loose from the hose and one
stream of water was turned on the
fire. The truck ran on to the ; next
plug, over a hundred yards further,
and coupled on another line of hose,
givhjg two streams on the blaze. They
drowned the fire in short order. The
southwest corner of the house up upstairs
stairs upstairs was burned thru and about half
the roof riddled, but that was about
all the damage done.
A few years ago, with horse-drawn
truck and the low water .pressure
given by the old waterworks, the
house and probably the one next to it
would have gone up in a blaze.

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as' the
buying of anything net essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. And, if you invest thet money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money

two miles of lake front and where the
fishermen make their hauls, spread a
