The remainder is accounted for by the cost of the stamps" and expenses incident to the campaign. More extensive plans than have ever been considered have been made by the New Britain Tuberculosis Re lief society for the year.. One of the features is the enlistment of t he Boy Scouts, who, in the role of sol diers of peace, will sell the stamps to storekeepers. The Scouts will be under the supervision of a lieutenant and their uniform will serve as their badges of authority. While the board of education has not passed on the matter it is un derstood that school children will as sist in the sale of seals this year as in the past. President B. F. Gaff ney of the school board- is heartily in favor of the fight against tubercu losis and approves of the idea of hav ing the boys and girls in the schools assist in the great work. Seals will be placed on sale in the lobby of the postoffice and the man ufacturers will be solicited and urg ed to affix them to their business cor respondence. In the past the man ufacturers have provided the princi pal revenue and it is hoped they will, be equally as liberal this year; A. Buol and P. F. King, both of whom are r connected with New Britain!-, manufacturing "circles, will have charge of this end of the sale. Slides will be thrown on the screens in theaters, urging the public to buy the seals. These are now being prepared by Dr. T. E. Reeks, su perintendent of health. The battle against the great white plague in . New Britain goes bravely, on every day'although those in charge of the work perform their noble task without anydrums or trumpets. Every year the society helps to smooth the path for hundreds of people, who are either afflicted or who have tuberculosis in their f am ilies. Warm clothing suitable for life at sanitoria is provided and hun dreds of gallons of milk are distribut ed. All this costs money and one of the channels for raising funds is through the sale of Christmas seals. Everyone can help.

Registrar and Aid Discover Fire in High Street House. Registrar of Voters Thomas J. Smith, accompanied by Andrew Cher pack, an interpreter, were on High street this morning canvassing for the personal tax, when they smelled smoke. They noticed smoke coming from the cellar at 234 High street and when they went to investigate they were informed hams were being cured. This explanation did not suit the registrar and a further investigation showed that, his fears were well founded. With Cherpack's aid he forced in the cellar door which was fastened with a padlock, and found the rafters in the roof blazing. Mr. Smith hustled out for a pail of water while his aid fought the flames- Be tween them they managed to extin guish the fire. The building in which they made the discovery contains a store and two tenements and but for their timely investigation a serious blaze might have occurred. LICENSE SUSPENDED.
