Watson Refuses to Undergo Operation for Oancer That Makes It Impossible for Hun to Eat or Talk, Until His Orders for Pictures Have Been Filled. I am suffering the agonies of the damned and'am starving to death with money in my pocket." This note, handed to Superintendent W. P. Barton of the poor department today, explained the condition of James B. Watson, once a well-known artist, now a helpless invalid afflicted with cancer in the throat which prevents him from eating or talking. Watson, however, has the true artist spirit and steadfastly refuses to under go an operation until he finishes pic tures he has promised to deliver. On a diet of port wine and milk in small quantities, he is working heroically to make his promises good. In his younger days Watson gained an enviable reputation as a portrait and scenic painter, and his annual in come amounted to thousands of dollars. He lived up his income as he .journeyed thru life, and his lack of foresight pre vented him from saving against a rainy day. The money came easily and went more easily. A few years ago his age began to tell, and altho he could still paint, he could not undertake the more difficult work. Last winter he con sented to be sent to the county poor farm and today the walls of many of the rooms are decorated with his pic tures. In the spring he left the institution, saying that he could remain idle no longer, and since that time has taken contracts for a large amount of work. Two months ago a lump appeared in his throat and he was horrified to learn that it was the deadly cancer. He braced up, however, and smilingly went about his work. The disease became more virulent and today he could neither talk nor eat. He has been in this condition for two weeks. Superintendent Barton made ar rangements for an operation at the hos Eital, but the old man says he must nish his work, and then if he has time for the operation he will submit. He called at the hospital to get some medi cine to allay his pam, and went out with the usual smile. "If I die as soon as the work is fin ished it won't be so bad," he said, "but die with it unfinished? Never' If I get well I will paint more pic tures.

DO LIVES, TH O GIVEN SUPPOSED FATAL DRU One tablespoonfnl of prussic acid is en'ough to kill the average dog. When a dog takes two spoonfuls and then wags his tail and whines for more there is something the matter, either with the acid or the dog. An incident of this nature has caused the Humane Society to start an agitation for a gas chamber and in the meantime to equip its official killer with a gun. Not long ago a tender-hearted woman telephoned to the society's of fice that she had a dog which was find ing life &. burden and requested that a man be sent to put it out of its misery. The agent used prussic acid. Instead of writhing in his death agony, the brute showed all the signs 01 revival. It is still living happily in his old home, but the society's agent is ill at ease. The only theory by which he can account for the unaccountable action of the deadly poison is that he has beeny the victim of a substitution and from a faint suggestion of departed spirits which hangs about the vial is almost persuaded that 4he drug clerk, suspect ing him of designs upon his own life, gave him whisky.

EIGHT-ME mm ?\A IN GA S FILLED ROO Eight firemen came near losin*g their lives in a fire that broke out in the Dia mond Iron works at Eighteenth avenue N and First street, last night. The fire started "in the engine room where several tanks of oil and gasolene are stored. When' the firemen arrived they hurried to different parts of the building to get the streams into play. Eight or them welit to the engine room in the basement where the fire started and were speedily enveloped in the poisonous gas. They were Captain Kane, Lieutenant Volkert, Amos Therian and Ed Llewel lyn of Engine company No. 14 Captain Price, Matt Spittle and Charles Oraigie of Hose company No. 4 and Lieutenant Nick Loye of No. 2 truck. As the men were fighting the flames the escaping gas from the oil tanks caught fire and blazed fiercely in front of the entrance. The air was laden with deadly fumes and the eight men were driven to the other end of the basement. They were about to give up the fight when one of them discov ered a small window in an unlighted part of the room. Thru this aperture they scrambled to safety. After a hard fight, lasting over two hours, the flames were extinguished. Much of the machinery was badly dam aged by water and heat and the build ing was badly scorched thruout. The loss will be about $5,000. CDPS AS PRIZES FO BEST CHEESE MAKER S The prize cheesemaker of the state is A. W.

CHURCHE S MUS OBSERV E RULE S BUILDING INSPECTOR URGES CAU- TION AT PUBLIC ASSEMBLIES. Provision of Building Ordinances Pro hibiting'Chairs in Aisles Is Likely to Be Disregarded at Holiday Season, as Is Also that Regarding Locking of Exits. Building Inspector James G. Hough ton extends a warning to pastors of churches and all other persons in au Kioritv cvei places where large crowds may gather during the holidays, that the building ordinances of the city must be observed. One provision of the ordinance which is likely to be most generally violated is that regarding aisleB and passage ways. It is wholly contrary to the law to place any seat, eampchair or any other obstruction whatever the aisles when any service or entertainment is being held. This is an exceedingly dan greous practice, for in th eevent of a fire or a panic from any cause the ob struction of the usual modes of egress greatly intensifies the confusion and in creases the danger. It is known that this provision is fre quently evaded, but Mr. Houghton warns the authorities that this practice, dangerous at all times, is particulary so during the holidays when the churches are liberally decorated with evergreen and inflammable material. Another section of the ordinance re quiring special attention at this time is the p'-ovision that all doors leading to the outside be unlocked and remain un locked thruout the entire service so that in the event of accident the utmost fa cilities for escape are provided. The les son wps taught by the Iroquois theater horror in which scores of lives were sac rificed which might have been saved had the emergency exits, which were liberal ly provided, been unlocked as they should have been. It should not be necessary to warn the members of decorating committees that many serious accidents have oc curred in churches and elsewhere thru carelessness in placing evergreen, paper and bunting in such close proximity to gas jets or lamps that they caught fire. A little eare in this particular might prevent serious catastrophe.
