Suffer Fire Loss.
The Dornfeld-Kunert Cos. suffered a se
vere loss by lire last Monday evening,
their plant being damaged to the extent
of nearly SB,OOO. The fire department
was quickly on the scene and at the time
of their arrival the roof of the machine
shop and blacksmith shop was a mass of
flames. The interior of the two shops
was badly damaged. Some of the ma
chinery in the machine shop was also
badly damaged. The fire evidently start
ed in the machine shop, it being discov
ered by the nightwatchman, but it got
beyond his control. How the fire origi
nated is not known. The buildings were
insured. The fire is unfortunate to the
company, particularly for the reason
that there will be a delay in finishing
contracts, as considerable machinery
was partially completed.
Fred Sell, residing in North Church
street, met with an accident during the
progress of the fire. Ho was struck on
the leg by a piece of piping. A gash was
cut which required several stitches.
The fire department was called out
Tuesday night on account of a blaze in
a hogsunad of straw on Second street,
which had evidently been set on lire by
some mischievous person or persons who
were anxious for a little excitement for
the benefit of the fair visitors.

The Storm Sunday Night. *
A heavy thunder and electrical storm
lasting for hours struck this section Sun
day night and rain came down in tor
rents. The lightning illuminated the
sky continuously during the storm and
several places were struck and consider
able damage was done in the city and
vicinity. The barn of John Laurnsdprf
on Little street was struck and destroy
ed, also two animals killed by the bolt,
occasioning a loss of over SSOO, covered
by an insurance policy in a company
represented by Charles J. Wenck. The
residence of 11. F. Oestreich was struck
and the chimney demolished and the
roof partially destroyed; fortunately no
one was injured. The home of Mrs.
Louise Ziebell, 012 Jefferson street, was
struck, but not damaged very much. Sev
eral trees in the city were struck and
the heavy downpour of rain washed mud
upon the sidewalks bn Main street and
filled a couple of basements, earning but
slight damage. Those of weak nerves
were mighty glad when the storm sub
sided and they could go to sleep.
A Wonderful tscape.
Mrs. Albert Schoechcrt, who resides on
rural route No. 3. was slightly injured
Sunday evening by stepping off an in
ternrban car at Southeast Watertown
while the car was in motion and
was thrown into a ditch. The car was
stopped and the injured woman brought
down into the city, received medical
treatment and was sent to her home.
That the lady escaped with only slight
bruises and a few loosened teeth is a
marvel and she has reason to congratu
late herself that she escaped so luckily.
Arnold Rentier got away from the Gas
and Electric Light office one day last

A Communxation.
Editor of the Leader:
I see that the common council is con
sidering an ordinance to close the sa
loons at 11 o’clock p. m. and keep them
closed until 5 o’clock a. in. What use is
there of passing such an ordinance? We
have a state law covering the same
ground and the state law takes prece
dence and would conflict. Is this ordi
nance to be passed (when the state law
covers the same question) to give the of
ficial paper more work? or to make the
voters think that the members of the
common council are earning the $8.33
per month which the people pay them
for their valuable (?) time. But if it is
to give the official paper something to
do, it is probably for that reason that
the city printing was awarded without
giving it to the lowest bidder, as the
law requires, for the same reason.
Our city fathers have employed a city
official to advise them, who cannot hold
the office legally (as the law says a man
cannot hold two offices that are incom
patible) at a salary of SIOO.OO per month.
Is it any wonder our taxes are high ami
getting higher every year? When our
city fathers spend the taxpayers money
thus extravagantly, is it to be wondered
at?
Should our city officials wish to close
tlie saloons at 11 p. m., Sundays and ou
election days, stop minors, both male and
female, from frequenting them, remove
them from the vicinity of the schools,
churches, parks and play grounds, they
will find ample laws to do it without
waiting to pass an ordinance.
No Crank.
Southland Sextette Concert
f
The concert given Monday evening at
the First M. E. church by the Southland

treat and thoroughly appreciated by
everyone in the audience. The singing

an artist. It would be hard to particular
ize, as all did well including the pianist.
It is seldom that our people have oppor
tunity to hear such excellent vocaliza
ing. The music covered a wide range
and was good from beginning to end
which came too soon, although it was
quite late when the concert ended.

Extensive Poultry Fattening.
A bulletin entitled “Fattening Poul
try”, describing successful methods of
fattening poultry on a large commercial
scale and giving complete data on the
feeding of over 100,000 birds, has just
been issued by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture. U gives informa
tion of operations on an ext eusive scale
and so far as known is the first publica
tion showing the cost of producing a
pound of gain in poultry.
“The successful feeding of poultry de
pends largely on the ability of the feeder
to notice the condition of the chickens
on feed,” is one of the fundamentals
laid down by the bulletin, “The common
practice in poultry packing houses is to
feed each lot 17 days or less. Most of
the milk-feed chickens are fed 14 days.
Practically all of the special feeding in
this country involves the use of milk,
which produces the ‘milk-fed chickens’
of the market. Milk, while the least
expensive, seems to be the most essential
constituent of the ration, and when a
feeder cannot get milk in some form he
generally does not attempt to fatten
poultry commercially.
“Crate feeding from troughs is the
method employed in this country by
most of the large fattening establish
ments, with 6 to 10 fowls in a crate.
Birds fed only for a short time may be
forced on highly concentrated feeds,
whereas if fed longer they may need a
ration containing a greater variety and
less concentrated.
“Milk seems to have a very important
influence on the digestive process, keep
ing the fowls in good condition under
forced feeding. Beef broth is used to
some extent but it is not as good as
milk. At the beginning, fowls should
be fed lightly for two or three feeds,
gradually increasing the amount until
they do not clean up all that is given to
them. The main object should be to
keep their appetites keen and at the
same time have them consume as much
feed as they can assimilate. By feeding
a small amount often, they will eat a
greater quantity and their appetites
will remain keener.”
The conclusions reached by the inves
tigation show that general purpose
fowls make more economical gains in
fattening than the Mediteranean class.
The average person will get better re
sults iu fattening by feeding three times
rather than twice daily. It was found
that the average cost of feed and labor
per pound of gain for a large lot of
poultry was 9.o9.cents and the cost of
the feed alone was 7.10 cents. It was
also observed that hens made less gain
than chickens, iu crate fattening and
that low grade wheat flour was more
economical feed than oat flour at the
pres ent prices of grain.
A copy of this bulletin may be obtained
by addressing a request to the Secretary
of Agriculture, Washington, D. C., for
Bulletin 140 of the Bureau of Animal
Industry.
