Petition City Council to Train Them to Fight Fires. - On Friday, Sept. 15, the second re gular meeting of the Women's Bet terment club was held at tbe club house with 18 members present. The playground committee reported that nothing had been done during the month of August . The benches, seats and tables that were all completed except being painted were entirely destroyed by the fire. The swings and see-saws will be finished immediately and two slides ordered for next spring and summer. Because the fire during ^he afternoon showed up in such a dismaying light and emphasized the inadequate fire protection of the homes in Riverside addition, a com mittee was appointed to meet with I the city council and submit the fol lowing proposition: "Since all of the men are at work ss t&jsrj&n'si use. Therefore, the Women's Better ment Club, representing Riverside addition, wish to form a hose cart brigade with regular drill in getting out and connecting the hose ready for By this drill they could have a stream of water on a burning build n g before the big hose cart arrived."

The building will be located in Mur hay addition, east of the Dave Mur ray residence in West Emmett, and will be 42 x 126 feet in dimensions. It will consist of seven apartments, each having three rooms and bath room, two roomy porches, one of which will be arranged as a sleeping porch, and a basement. They will be mod em in every way, except heat, but provision made for heating the rooms by either electricity or stove as de sired. Built-in conveniences and fur niture will abound. The building will be one story and of frame construc tion. This will be the first modem apart ment house to be built in Emmett and will fill a long felt need. This city is suffering severely from house short age and it is hoped that investors will follow the example set by this en terprising firm of builders and assist in relieving the situation. There is not a vacant house in town and in a number of cases, two and even three families are occupying one dwelling. The crying need of Emmett today, and for years to come, will be more houses, and the man who provides them will be hailed as a benefactor. ROMANCE GONE The Arabian desert is the latest victim of "the age of machinery," the steam roller that crushes romance wherever it invades. From the land of the caliphs comes a printed circular, announcing that motor-buses now are running regular ly between Bagdad and Aleppo. The route is 560 miles, the trip five days, along the historic Euphrates valley. Desert bandits, who raid camel caravans? The shrewd general mana ger of the motor line has taken care of them. The raiding sheiks have been bought off. In consideration of " a lump sum down," they guarantee ing to the dogs. 1 tr 'P in central Ontario, Canada. ....

It is not so many years since ro mance and adventure a-plenty awaitc-d the average American only a few hun dred feet behind his cabin in the for est clearing. Something is lacking in life now. and that something is the natural set ting for romance. Industry has killed it. The popular craving for departed romance probably explains the phe nomenal sale of such books as "Out line of History," "The Story of Man kin" and "Outline of Science." The readers are after embalmed thrills rather than knowledge. Future Sale Assured. A sruai hoy looked longingly Into a store window where a shining new bicycle was displayed.
