It is reported that the Turner hall
management has decided not to lease
that hall longer for public Saturday
and Sunday night dances. This will
relieve the crusaders of the embarrassing-
question that has been handed
to them from all sides as to whether
the bars there were to be allowed to
do business after midnight. Asked as
to this matter, Dr. Giglinger said: "I
have no doubt some satisfactory ar
rangement can be made. The case of
the east side dance halls, with their
bad surroundings and atmosphere,
was different. At Turner and Claus
Groth halls it ought t'o be possible to
reach an understanding by which the
doors would be closed after midnight
to newcomers, and that the patrons
or subscribers to a dance need not be
deprived of their drinks. I think it
can be arranged."

to the effect that an arsenal workman
is in the hospital, getting over a little
lameness, resulting from a fellow
workman finding him at his home un
der circumstances that were difficult
of explanation. If any explanation
was attempted, it was unsatisfactory
to the husband, who came home unex
pectedly, and he promptly got a gun
and blazed away. The only bullet
which landed, is said to have hit the
other man in the foot, and he is laid
up for repairs.

The timely discovery of a bulge in
the boiler of the local plant of the

afternoon doubtless prevented an ex

the lives of several of the hundred em

eer McMulIen noticed the bulge when
he was firing. It was so pronounced
that steam had already begun to es
cape, and in a few minutes more the
metal would have in all likelihood
