their own room, opened the window

AFTER JAN. 1
After January 1 A. J. Fenn of this
city will no longer be a district en
gineer, nor will he receive his pay
from the state, as at present. He will
be county superintendent of highways,
having been appointed to that posi
tion at the last meeting of the board
of county commissiorters. He goes on
the county pay roll in January, his
salary to be paid monthly. The sala
ry will be fixed at the January meet
ing of the board.
Owing to a shortage in the state'
funds for paying district engineers
the state commission has announced
that it will not pay their expenses any
longer and urged the counties to place
them on their pay roll. Several coun
ties have combined in some cases and
will employ only one engineer.

St. Cloud Journal-Press: Another
case of "didn't know it was loaded,'i*1

the can up with water and set it on
the stove to heat. When Mr. Fearing
returned he opened the stove door to
attend to the fire and the fumes of
the gasoline caught fire. Fearing's

slightly singed'. The interior of the
