HELM HOI DESTfiOYED
Fire Started From Flying Ember
From Crawford Home Fire
Was Partially Insured
The John Helm home located east
of the city on the I G X railroad
a pretty and picturesque home was
totally destroyed Wednesday after
noon having set fire from a flying
ember from the Crawford home fire
reported in Wednesdays issue
The house was totally destroyed
together with most of the contents
Only part of the furnishings from the
first floor were taken from the build
ing When the alarm was turned in
from this fire the department was
busy with the Crawford fire and some
considerable delay was had in getting
to the fire Then it was necessary to
lay a long lino of hose to reach the
nearest fire plug
It took hard work to protect other
property from the heat and flying
sparks Mr Helms loss is partially
covered by insurance
During the progress of the Crawford
fire sparks set fire to several bales
of cotton in the Mclnnis cotton yard
directely in the path of the flying
sparks but they were extinguished by
those who were keepingclose watch
LOW WATER PRESSURE
It Was Slow Coming at the Crawford
Fire and Elicited Much Un
favorable Comment
Firemen at the Crawford home fire
yesterday afternoon report it was
some fifteen or twenty minutes after
the hose was laid before they could
get water pressure sufficient for act
ive service In the meantime some
great deal of mud was blown through
the hose almost stopping the flow of
water at times
At the jail corner the fire plug
could not be opened and an automo
bile was pressed into service to go
for a pipe wrench with which to open
the hydrant This hydrant so it is
reported has been in this condition
since the paving contractors used it
getting water from the hydrant for
the paving work The top of the
hydrant connecting with the value
was worn round so the wrench ordi
narily used was o no avail

Speaking of the attraction at the

Chicago Evening American of August

White City has a very big attrac

big attraction is Liberatis Band as

soloists and chorus give two con
certs The band selections alternate
with scenes from grand opera render
ed by excellent soloists and full cho
rus The second concert both after
noons and evenings ends with opera
in costume This week the program
closes with Cavalerria Rusticana
rendered in its entirety Just the
gate money lets you in to hear Lib
erati and his company and everybody
goes Musical enthusiasts are massed
thick through the great treeroofed en
closure in front ofthe band stand
half an hour before the concerts be
gin Liberatis singers are men and
women with large fulltoned melo
dious voices They can he heard
clearly through the whole enclosure
You have paid a dollar many a time
for opera that could not compare with
what Liberati gives you for nothing
once you have got by the White City
gatemen Perhaps the opera attracts
you most But it is not the whole
thing in Liberatis concerts By no
means There is Liberati himself
one of the finest cornetists who ever
blew his way to fame through a brass
tube It was an inspiring thing to
see Liberati playing his cornet while
directing his band of seventyfive men
with his left hand You get the best
of Liberatis Band in its military and
national selections Last night Lib
erati played American patriotics till
he lifted thercrowd off its fleet yes

up into tnalair and shouted when
Liberatis
Star Spangled Banner
He hasan lnterestlng historjr this
same Liberati He has been a band
master on this side of the Atlantic for
thirtysix years He has enough
medals to make him s suit of armor
if he strung them all together This
year Liberatis Band is better > than
ever as the daily and nightly crowds
at White City testify

A quinine pill is almost as bitter as

Woman is only the weaker vessel

The crowing hen is merely the suf

Lots ofmerchants have discoverer
that all that glitters isnt sold
After all perhaps the hasbeens are
no worse than the goingtohes
The fact that talk is cheap is what
makes it so expensive in the end
Really the only ofiice that seeks

The only man who never made a
