LAX FIRE PREVENTION
Department's Efficiency Sec
ond Only to Kansas City,
Says Chief Kurtz.
So Do Schools and Colleges,
He Adds State Inspect
ion in November.
"There is not a theater In town
that complies with the state fire stat
utes, which are none too strict."
This was the statement of Fire Chief
Earl Kurtz in speaking of lire pre
vention to the members of the Retail
Merchants' Association last night.
"Some of those in charge of the
public schools, colleges and the Uni
versity are not doing what they
should in the way of fire precaution,
but promise to do more.
"Columbia has received a black eye
with insurance men because of the
number and frequency of fires of ir
tegular origin, but conditions are im
proving." One local agency paid out in fire
losses during January and February,
1913, $30,000, and since then has paid
losses to the amount of only $20,000.
Department Ranks Second.
The Columbia fire department is
given second place in efficiency in
.Missouri, by a recent report of the
insurance commissioner. Kansas City
Is placed first.
Mr. Kurtz recommended the crea
tion of the office of state fire marshal
and urged the association to use its
influence with the next legislature,
which is to consider the matter.
Other states have fire marshals with
the result, Mr. Kurtz thinks, that
many fire-bugs have been driven Into
Mr. Kurtz has received a letter from
the state insurance commissioner
stating that twenty-five mraebers of
his department will visit Columbia in

spection of the city. The chief of

right fire protection.

The following resolution, indorsing
the work of the Columbia fire chief,
was passed by the association:
"That the Retail Merchants Asso
ciation goes on record as approving
the work of Fire Chief Kurtz up to
the present, and that a standing com
mittee on fire prevention be appointed

Out of Twenty Cases Only
Four Were Complaints

Judge David H. Harris held Circuit
Court to listen to divorce cases. There
were too many to get them all In one
Twenty case3 were tried and taken
under advisement by the court All
but four of the suits were brought
There were young couples and old
couples, recently married and others
who had been living together for more
than a quarter of a century. Many
had several children; others had none.
One by one they took the witness stand
and told the judge why it was they
wanted to be free from matrimonial
Laura L. Hobart, 18 years old,
sought divorce from D. Wallace Ho
bart, 19 years old. They have been
married about two years, she said,
and he has failed to support her. There
is one baby.
Elizabeth Blackburn, 69 years old,
asked to be freed from David Black
burn, 68 years old. They have been
married about five years and can't
get along together. Mrs. Blackburn
said they sometimes cussed each oth
er. After Thirty-three Years.
Mary A. Stover wanted the court
to annul her marriage to J. F. Stover,
with whom she had lived thirty-three
years. There were six children, the
youngest 19 years old.
Anna H. Westbrook said her hus
band, Williard R. Westbrook, to whom
she was married in 1905 hadn't con
tributed one dollar to her support
since the day of their marriage. She
had supported their home, such as
they had, by her own work. A year
or so after their marriage, she said,
they bought a little house. She gave
her husband money she had earned by
taking in sewing to pay on the home.
Afterward she learned her husband
had spent the money for other pur
poses. Tho home had to be given up
because of this. He drank. There
were no children.
Dena Barnes said her husband
Charles B. Barnes, began to get cross
about six months after they were mar
ried. He would pout when things
didn't go right, she said, and the last
year or two he wouldn't pay any at

loved her better than he did me," Mrs.
