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
people worked splendidly in rescu
ing the large quantity of nice furni
ture which was carefully taken
with but little 1 damage, for

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
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
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.
