er of the afternoon was Mrs. L. B. Mc

Captain DuVall of the Vigilant Hose
Company then addressed the meeting!
on the subject of fire waste and his!
talk was one that might well have
been heard by every resident of Valley
City. Mr. DuVall emphasized the ne
cessity for being careful about leaving
oiled cloths lying about and about the
use of gasoline. He elated that out of
sixteen calls of the fire department
last year, more than half were caused
by gasoline. Mention was also made
of tbe large amount of refuse which
fills the alleys and back yards in town
and the great ri.«k of fire from such
carelessness. Mr. DttVall read parts
df a magazine article on the subject of
fires and their various causes which
was interesting and closed by compar
ing the fire rate per capita of our
country and our state with other
countries* Statistics show that the
percentage of fire loss per capita in
Germany is 19 cents while in the Unit
ed States it is $2.39 and in North Da
kota $5.00 per capita. Mr. DuVall's
talk ended tbe program after which
refreshments were served and the 1
dies present adjourned.
