FIRE LOSS $1,500. .
Barn Owned by Charles A. Nelson
Burned Two Horses, Hay, Wagon
A double alarm from box 56 at the
corner of Summit and Jackson streets
at S:30 Thursday night brought out
the entire hre department and several
hundred people. The fire was in the
barn owned by Charles A. Nelson ard
located in the rear of his home, No.
4 Bolivia street. Two horses, a lot of
hay, some wagons, tools and the barn
were destroyed. Mr. Nelson placed
his loss at about $1500 with about
$800 insurance. The cause of the fire
is unknown. Mr. Nelson said that he
came out of his home to go to his
barn to teed his two horses und he
found the barn to be completely in
names. He had not been there for
some time during the day and was
completely at a loss to understand how
the fire started. He felt much put out
over the fire, because the two horses
which were burned to death, he used in
his business of peddling kerosine oil.
His oil wagon was not in the barn at
.the time of the fire. The Willimantic
Fire Department made good lime in
reaching the scene of the fire, getting
there in a few minutes after the
alarm, although the place of the fire
was nearly a mile from most of the
farm houses. When the fire depart
ment arrived on the scene, indications
were that the home was seriously
threatened. Firemen placed ladders
on all four sides of the house and fire
men were stationed on the roof with
hose to put out any blaze which might
The work of the fire department was
most efficient and the quick effective
manner in which the various com
panies reached the site of the fire no
doubt saved the Nelson home frcm
being destroyed. There were many
words of commendation heard relative
to the quickness displayed by the de
partment in reaching the location of

of hiving illegally drawn and passed
checks on the Windham County Na

Judge R. H. Back Gets Biggest Vote.
By telegraph Thursday Judge Harry
E. Back received the pleasing infor

ington, where judges are elected, not
appointed, as in Connecticut, his
brother, Judge R. H. Back, as a can
didate for re-election as judge of the
superior court for Clark county, re
ceived not only the greatest number
of votes of any candidate seeking the
honor of the judgesnip, but many
more votes than the combined votes
of all the other candidates for the
place. Under Washington law this
latter fact eliminates the other candi
dates and assures Judge Back's re
election in November.
FOR WOMAN CANDIDATE
Independent Party Making Every Ef
fort to Get Miss Emma F. Pilling
on School Board.
The activity of the friends and
supporters of Miss Emma F. Pilling,
named by the independent organiza
tion as a candidate for election to
the Killingly town school committee,
has become a special feature of the
town campaign preceding the annual
town election; in fiict. it overshad
ows many other features of the an
nual spirited pre-election contests.
A house to house canvass has
achieved the intended aim of inter
esting a considerable number of wom
en in the proposition that women
should be represented by members of
their sex on the town school com
mittee and resulted in a large sheaf
of applications for registration as
voters being handed to the registrars
Thursday, the last day for registra
tion before the election on the first
Monday in October. To the strength
at the polls of the women heretofore
registered and qualified to vote and
who, in many instances, will support
Miss Pilling, must be added the list
of women who have registered for the
special pu'npose of supporting her
candidacy a formidable group as
voters and the men who are openly
and avowedly In favor of her elec
tion and still other men who have
made no declaration of intention, but
will vote to give the women repre
sentation In a special way. The can
vass in the interest of Miss Pilling
will continue with unabated vigor un
til the polls close.
Can Miss Pilling win? This is the
question that has the political sharps
figuring. That those who figure may
have something upon which to base
their efforts the following Is presented

SOON TO BE OCCUPIED.
About $10,000 Worth of New Textile
Machinery Ready to Be Installed.
The new State Trade School build
ing is being made ready for occupan

pleted and trade school students have
well advanced the work of hanging
shafting and doing other work that
must precede the installation of the
machinery. The work of moving from
Hammond hall, which has been in
temporary use as a trade school, will
begin almost at once and the remov

and the school in its fine new home

In equipping the new building the
trade school students nave their work
cut out for them. There is stored
here approximately $10,000 worth - of
new textile machinery. This, with
the dyeing plant machinery to be in
stalled, will represent an investment
of $20,000 for additional machinery.
All of the new machinery will be set
up -yrid made ready for operation by
the school's students, they also to
have charge of the removing of the
machinery in use in the present school
an dot the work of resetting it in the
The new textile equipment includes
pickers, carders, slubbers, frames and
looms, a combination of machines
that will permit of taking raw cot
ton from the bale and putting it
through every process up to that of
producing the finished fabric. The
dyeing plant, something not included
In the original plans for equipment,
will include a vat, dyeing outfit, dryer,
oven, experimental test bath. etc.
In the new school building the car
pentry and machinery departments
will occupy the first floor. The en
tire second floor and a part of the
third floor space will 1)e given over to
the textile department. On the third
floor also will be located the electric
al department, the drafting foom and
two class rooms.
The school is developing splendidly
and a large .number of boys and girls
are availing themselves of and benefit

take it, Miss Pilling must receive
around 400 votes to win, perhaps 450,
and even then, if elected, she would
displace a democratic candidate, not
one of the republicans. Some of Miss
Pilling's friends are claiming over 600
votes for her, a figure that the demo
cratic candidates would have exceed
ing difficulty in commanding for their
support, because the party registra
tion here does not approach that to
tal. Should Miss Pilling win over a
democrat, the members of the mi
nority party here will see in it the

Local democrats have placed Ray
mond J. Jodoin on their tickets as first
selectman and the republicans have
named William C. Smith and local
people look forward to a closely con
tested election. The democrats are
confident that the flag of democracy
which has waved o'er the town of
Sprague for the past 15 years with the
exception of 1914 when the republicans
were the ruling faction, will continue
to be fanned by the democratic breezes.
The republicans, however, believe
that the G. O. P. banner will float in
triumph on election night and will be
given a hearty greeting by the repub
lican contingent. Both parties are
planning a strong campaign and
Sprague citizens expect to see one of
the hardest fought political battles in
a number of years.
The license question also will be vot
ed upon. The. license supporters have
canvassed the town and sufficient
names have been secured to take ac
tion on the question. Sprague for the
past twenty years has been a licenced
town, but the political tide turned at
the election in 1915 when the prohibi
tionists carried the day by a majority
of three votes.

EVERYBODY WILL BE DOING IT
No More Back-Breaking Scuttles
To Be Carried Up Those
If you buy coal in large quantities you must have
room to store itj if in small quantities, it is expensive.
When you want to use it you must carry it from its
storage pkee to your rnge, and of all tasks that is one 1
of the most weary.
When you burn wood or coal you have the heat, dirt,
and the trouble of attending to the fire. If you use gas
you require no room for storage; no back-breaking scut
tles to be carried from the cellar to the kitchen. The
hre in the gas range burns steadily and without atten
tion; it is always ready, without dirt or trouble, in large
or small quantities.
