At this hour of the night it is a very rare thing to see anyone on the streets the town is growing better in one respect it goes to sleep how in the forepart of the night, but there has been but little improvement in the hour for getting up. Most people get Up just whenever they want to go to work when they want to work as long as they want to, etc. But going back to the fire the burning out of a flue in the Grand Central hotel block caused the com motion, created much excitement among the guests of the popular ho tel, brought out the fire truck, to gether with about half the population of the town within less time than we have been in telling it to you. It re quired some few minutes to locate the fire. Many offered their solution as to how to reach it after it was located, but luckily there would prob ably have been no serious results from the blaze had no one discovered it. Serious results could have result ed, however, had the fire gained any headway in this block. It would have been almost impossible to have coped with the flames had they once got ten under headway. Then, again, there does not appear to be any kind of an organization among the fire fighting bunch. It may be regretted some day that so little interest has been manifested in organizing and maintaining a regulated fire brigade. If you happen to need a car for a little drive, Troy Vann has three a seven-passenger Studebaker, a six passenger Overland and a little five passenger Ford. They all will take you any place you want to go. Ask Troy. The Goat's Foot Did you ever notice the shape and the build of a goat's foot?
