THREE FIRES BUT SMALL DAMAGE Department Called to Rrouilard House on Recti Street, Wagner Shoe Store and Grotto's Tenement. What might have developed into a serious (ire early this morning was averted by quick work of the fire depas ment in getting to the house of Joseph Riouillard at 14 Re?d street.

The roof of ihe piazza was burned eff. the wall .f an adjacent shed was gutted and the flames- had just worked their way through the rear wall of the house, when the tiremfn sueifeded in checking the spread of the llames. Just how the fire started is unknown, but all indications pointed to its start ing near two barrels and a lard tub. w hich were, on the rear porch. It was learned that the chimney wa cleaned out yesterday and some of the soot left near the jwrch. in which sparks may have smouldered until they burst into flames during tbe night. After an hour's work, tnc flames wore extinguished. The damage was small and has been estimated at less than ItMl. Two other tires occtmied the attention "f. the fire department yesterdnv.. both being chimney tires and a still alarm being given in each instance. The tirst one broke out at 10.4." a. m. in the chim ney of Leroy II. Wagner's shoe store at r Main street.

When the polls open in Festival hall at a. m. tomorrow, to remain open until ' V- ni. for representative vots arid until ." p. in. for the state and county tickets, there is little doubt that balloting will' bigin promptly and continue with slight iet-up throughout the day.

Lynch, who is running on an Independent ticket, making the claim that his : Republican opponent, Frank L.

Mr. Barber's supporters, on the other hand, argue that his recoid was not attacked until the present campaign started and that he should be returned because he is a Republican and a man with previous legislative experience. , Very little except state issues has been discussed in (he campaign, which in spite of its activity has been kept free from personalities.

SERVICES. Church Conference Speaker Advices Quail Re Mixetl with Manna. 'Asserting that Christ would not talk to empty seats if there were any legiti mate way to fill them. Dr. Christian F. Reisner of New York, in an address be fore the National Conference on Church Publicity, recently told the assembled ministers to follow the suggestions off the Nazarene and "go out and compel them to come in." "The church is too timid," he said. -"It is too common for people to be sat-: istied with a church building and a for mal Sunday service. Few things are more. deadening than a smug satisfaction that glibly spins excuses for empty churches amid non-church attending mul titudes. ' "At times religion is cheapened by th vague and inane efforts made to reach the community. They lack life, purpose and determination. Jesus performed miracles to draw the crowd to hear bis message.- The Pharisees quickly called him u sensationalist, but the people' heard- him and a world revolutionizing movement was started. "The first essential to selling the church is to awaken the pastor . and. membership until they get on their toes and put their "goods' into circulation. Tli en. they will have fresh and palatable goods on hand and find a way to get con suming customers. The people are hun-t gry. for God but they must sometimes, have quail mixed with their manna."
