THE THANKS OF MORE ThJAN
DUTY. Charles Olson was a city
fireman. We say ''was," because he
is dead now. And he's dead because
he tried to do more than his paid-for
duty. Firemen shoulder a great deal
of responsibility in their own line of
work. Folks don't often give 'em
credit enough. In every big fire fire
men are killed or injured. And yet
they keep right on going those who
live through smoke, fumes,, falling
walls and flames.
When an intoxicated man annoyed
residents near Olson's engine com
pany, No. 38, the fire fighter took a
little more than his own work in
hand and pinched the souse. While
waiting for the patrol, another man
ran up, struck Olson and knocked
him unconscious. He died last night.
He leaves a widow to mourn a' man
who did more than his duty. Some
how or other you can't often give our
firemen too much credit.

and we'll show you the gazabo who
will make a line little bachelor.

Nobody but capitalists and the idle
