a fire, how, to send in fire 'alarms or
summon the flre companies by telephone
filled a large part of the day's programme
at every school. In some schools the In
struction was made realistic by starting
small fires, and the children were shown
how to put them out with fire extin
Gmishers. Campflre Girls and companies of Boy
Scouts cave demonstrations in several
schools In puttlns out fires and In giving
first aid to the injured.
Fire Chief Frank J. Wagner, who
warmly approves Dr, Davidson's plan of
setting apart one day In the year -for
the instruction of school children In the
prevention of fire, helped the observance
of the day along as tar as ne coum ana

In the Thomson School, the'' spirit of

pupils of the first four grades In the
Normal Auditorium Selections from
articles on great flre were read to the

Ben W Murch. principal of night

the teachers to their owl pupils last
night. The same Instruction was given
to these pupils, as was given to those
of the day schools
At the Gales School last night the owl

"Activity Is unabated. Practically all
avenues of trade are busy and tbe post
election period has apparently witnessed
er Increased rather than a decreased
volume of business. Secondary distribu
ters report the receipt of large mall or
ders, while at some markets buyers In
rurson have operated quite freelv. Buy
ing for next spring Is expanding. Indus
trial operations are as active as hereto
fore railway tonnage is of large propor
tions, cars are not overplentlfully ani
vhere. old debts are being liquidated, re
tall trade Is enlarging, and principally in
sections where low temperatures have
prevailed: holiday business Is growing,
the railways continue to buy material in
volume, and. except In a few lines of
textiles where tariff talk Is In evidence,
oDtlmlsm is as notable as ever.
"Dry goods, shoes, flour, groceries,
clothing, furniture, hardware, home fur
nishings, coal and drugs are In the fore
front as regards calls Wool is less ac
tive, but belated buying, which Is of the
small lot type, makes up a fair aggre
gate, full prices having had to be paid by
those who thought concessions would be
n'ade after election.
