Volume 30 CATALOGUEING BOOKS AT WILLIAMS LIBRARY Miss Gordon, librarian of the Williams Public Library, is ar ranging to list all books in the library in a card catalogue. Heretofore the books have not been catalogued and as a result it has been impossible to keep an accurate tab on them. One desiring a book must needs hunt until finding it. With the new card system it will be pos sible to locate any book desired with a minimum of trouble and it wilL be possible to find at a glance whether any desired book is "in" or "out". The task Miss Gordon is un dertaking is a very large one but when accomplished it will make the library much more useful and valuable. In fact this will put it on a par with large city libraries for efficient and convenient usef ullness up to its capacity. Nearly three thousand cards will be used in -catalogueing the books, which fact proves that the library has a very large number of books for a small town. Williams may well be proud of her -library. -Tragedy Narrowly Averted. 'What might have been a very sad tragedy was narrowly averted last week in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Greene. Early Wednesday morning while Mrs. Greene was helping the children with their dressing her dress caught on fire in the back from a very hot stove. Little" Barbara was the first to discover the blaze. She screamed and called her moth er's attention to the fire. Mrs. Greene rushed into the kitchen where her husband was firing the kitchen ' stove. By this time the entire back of her dress was in flames. Mr. Greene rushed to her assistance and first tried to beat out the flames with his hand but with out success. He then threw his wife on the floor and rolled - her in a rug with the result that the flames were quickly smoth ered. ' . Mrs. Greene escaped without serious injury altho her dress was ruined the entire back be ing burned out. Mr. Greene suffered very painful burns on his hands sustained while trying to beat out the blaze with them. One does not like to contem plate what might have been the result had not Mr. Greene been present. I. O. O. F. SCRIBBLINGS A splendid meeting night but we seem to have lost one 0. A.

The Methodist Sunday school last Sunday passed the one hundred mark in attendance, there being 101 present. For several weeks the attendance has been hovering just, under one-hundred, the record for the last three Sundays being 95, 99 and 101. ' Not only is the attendance on the upgrade but the quality of the instruction given is far above that of the average Sun day school. Six of the twelve teachers are teachers n the pub lic schools while the others are either thoroughly experienced, highly trained, or under expert supervision. You will look far before you will find a more ef ficient and faithful group of teachers in another Sunday school. Such an institution speaks well for Williams for many a town similarily situated, can not duplicate the Sunday school here in Williams, an institution which, hand in hand with the public schools, is doing a great deal for the moral and social betterment of the community. But although the attendance is increasing,, and although the average attendance is .a larger per cent of the enrollment than is the case in many Sunday schools, and although the in struction is of the best, there is still room for improvement in attendance. It is to be de plored that, with such an in stitution in the community, more folks do not see to" it that their children are in their places in the Sunday school each Sun day, unless unavoidably, de tained, and that more of the men and women of Williams do not avail themselves of the opportunities offered in this school. Futhermore, it is a well known fact that children and young people are hero worship ers, worshipping some older person and imitating them in many things. Applying this fact to the problem of keeping children in the Sunday school someone well said, "The best way to keep children in the Sunday chool is to -build a wall of parents between them and the door." He meant that if the parents are in the Sunday school the sons and daughters are more likely to be there. Of course some parents cannot be there but there are some who could be there that are not. This is written not in a spirit of fault finding, but simply to call attention to the fact that you are not merely welcome, you are wanted in the Sunday school, both for your own sake and for the sake of your child ren, that we mav the more suc cessfully hold them and help them to build characters that will stand anv test. In doing his the Sunday school is per forming a real community ser vice, for character is the first requisite in business, in indus try, in social life, the first ne cesity in a safe and peaceful community life. Such an institution deserves your hearty support. "Let's Sol" WHY WAIT? Sittings made every evening. Latest Folders. Bothe's Rubber heels to soften your path. Old.ahoes fired as good as new.

Commenting on the satisfact ion derived from the use of a uniform motor fuel, the Nation al Petroleum News published in Cleveland O., extols the merits of Red Crown Gasoline, stating that the popularity of this fuel is due to none other than its uniformity and the service it renders to motorists. Petroleum News says, in part " It has long been recognized that one of the chief reasons for the large sales of Red Crown Gasoline over the country is that this product is practically uniiorm; that the motorist can adjust his carburetor to Red Crown in one state and drive practically throughout the Unit ed States wthout changing the adjustment. "While individual jobbers in all marketing territories sell high grade gasoline, the vari ance between the product put out by one jobber and anotner and between the products put out in different states by differ ent jobbers "is so great that many motorists prefer sticking to the Standard product when on a long tour rather than tak ing the trouble to make con stant' readjustments of their carburetor, due to the differ ences in gasoline they encounter."

HOME DEMONSTRATION WORKER HERE NEXT WEEK Miss Rosa Bouton, Home Demonstration Agent, gave a very interesting talk last Satur day afternoon at the home of Mrs. Kirwin introducing her self and her work to about six teen 'women of the Women's Club and other organizations. In speaking first of the im portance of the home and of more care being given to the proper feeding of children, she repeated the results of the in vestigation carried out under Dr. Copeland in the schools of New York City, whereby it was proved that 1-3 of the children were underweights or were suf fering from some form of mal nutrition, the 1-3 being not from among the very poor. Miss Bouton said that about 1-3 could be taken as a general es timate everywhere and brought out the point that for years calves, pigs and colts have been receiving more care than our children. The object of the Home demonstration agents as put by Miss Bouton, is "to help home makers reduce the time and strength put in the homes and to make more time for the up building of the homes," etc. She spoke of the Function of the Home. Under Providing for the Needs of the Home, she made seven topics : food, cloth ing, shelter, operating expenses expenses for higher life, saving and miscellaneous.
