We can destroy all their breeding places about our piaces and the city can keep the drains and ditches open and see that no stag nant pools are allowed. If it is neces sary to cut the weeds, why we guess we could do that on a pinch. The only thing is to get to wanting a mosquito less town strong enough. Most things are poss''ble when the will is there. Suppose we get to thinking about this thing seriously, and not merely as a subject only important enough to take up space in this column. Nearly everybody is finding some thing to do while waiting on the wea ther to get right. If thd weather lias not been suitable for the cleanup to your satisfaction, why just keep on the jcb until you can : pprove it. We are forced to admit Ciat. owing to the general dampness (lie burning part of the program could not bo successfully carried out. We can't afford to let this thing go default just on account of the uncertainty of the weather. EASTER EGG HUNT Winthrop, April 5.— (Special.)—Mes-I dames J. P. Lazarus and Chas.

Hot Springs Ark., Apri’ 5.—One fireman was killed and two other firemen were seriously hurt late tonight when tho walls of the Ar lington hotel, noted hostelry, which was destroyed by fire late today, crumbled and fell upon them as they were working in the ruins with a hose line. George Ford is the dead man. John Wood suffered a broken leg and Butler Broiwn was badly crushed. The property loss in the fire es timated tonight at upwards of a million dollars. In addition, loss ot personal effects, Including jewelry, money and clothing of the guests, will run into a considerable figure. Most of the hotel occupants were left with no personal property other than what they wore when the alarm was given. The escape of many guests and em ployees was facilitated by the moun tain slope on which the hotel was built, at the rear of the building egress being possible from each floor to^the mountainside. The register of guests at the Ar lington included Mrs. Joe T. Robin son, wife of United States Senator Robinson. The fire was discovered in the basement of thci hotel at 3 o'clock this afternoon, at which time it already had gained considerbale headway, i Strenuous efforts of the city fire de portment personnel ware unavailing I in checking its spread, though it was confined to the lower part cf the ouild-1 ing for an hour. RDcnse smoke in the corridors and even outside the burning building1 interferred with the work of the1 fire fighters. Fully fifty persons, unable to reach 1 the rear and blocked from stairs by ■ the smoke-filled halls, were rescued j by firemen who reached the front win dows on hook and ladder equipment. > About 300 guests were registered > at the hotel. It was believed all es-' caped without injury. With exit by i the usual means hampered, guests ' crowded to the balconies with what | few of their belongings they could ' hastily gather, and with the aid of i ladders to the mountainside which; skirts the hotel site. Some, over- 1 come by smoke, wjr'e given medical i attention. The hotel, situated within the ' government reservation, had accom modations for about 500 guests. Abou two-thirds of the rooms were said to have been occupied. Farm Leans s s-* Per saw? Prompt Inspections FEDERAL LAND BANK Jas. D. Shaver, Jr., Secy.
