A KewYear reception was being held by President Harrison in the White House and Mr Allen, along with .other ministers, was present. .Sud denly he reeled and fell dead In the midst of the gay throng. A prominent newspaper man lost Tils Job as a result of the accident He had been assigned by a "Washington paper to cover the reception. He had been to many others before. It was the same old story to him. The music, the hand somely dressed women, the decorations, the prominent ladies receiving, the hand shaking of the thousands of visitors.

"She hoisted the American flag on a pole In her yard and bought Liberty bonds. Her action was appreciated by all the people, who are Intensely loyal to the United States.
