Payette Enterprise 4 k PAYETTE. PAYETTE COUNTY, IDAHO THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1918 ONE DOLLAR AND ONE-HALF A YEAR No. 49, VOL, XIV i,ust thursday alternoon about 1:3» o'clock, juc.t as the people w re pre paring for a sumptuous Thanr.s = Mng dinner, fire started in the roof oi u-e August Jacobsen house, a large two story brick on Second Avenus South, It was first noticed by Mrs. W. H. Färber who ran a rcss the street to give the alarm and found the o.:cu pants of the bouse happily enjoy ng themselves preparing dinner witl) a big turkey in the ov<n. unaware of what was soon to take place. The alarm was turned in whi h so;n brought the fire department and a large number of people who worked frantically in an endcaver to ex tinguish the fire and to save the furniture. Lut in spite of all eforts the entire roof was destroyed and th house completely soaked wi h water. Pradically all the furn ture was sav ed. There were a few articles In the garret, seme cf whi h belcnged to -Mrs. Brundage. which were lost. The i* * • * people worked splendidly in rescu ; f ing the large quantity of nice furni ture which was carefully taken with but little 1 damage, for Mrs. Sewell is very grateful out which and has kindly asked that tbe peoile be thanked through the columns cf th*s paper. The loss to the hot's was fui ly covered by insurance which was promptly settled for and a contra- 1 has been let to Contracter A. Williams to replace the damage done Se ' The Sewell family and Mrs. mercial Hotel and are very comfott ably located while the work is b-ing done. The main part of the furniture is stored in the N. A. Ja-ohsen build * well's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jacob sen, have rented rooms at the Com ing on First Avenue North. » ELECTION The election of directors was held as per notice last Saturday. The re sult seems to be an endorsement of the work in the past, in the same way that the Deacon's nap was an endorsement of his minister. He didn't need to stay awake, because he knew that everything would be perfectly orthodox. The few people who voted cast their ballots so that Mrs. Crump was elected chairman of the Board of Directors, Miss Anna Johns n sec ond member, and Mrs. Muller tied with Chas. Bolton for the third place. The decision between the two has 4 * ' not been made yet. Rut wh-ethrr the one or the other we have a Board that will hold the confidence of the supporters of the work. The Board will meet «con and ap point the chairman and other officers for next years activities, whi'll will probably be equal to those of the year past if not even greater. » FARM BUREAU NOTES.
