Cigars Pleased Firemen.
The city firemen met in their regu !
ar monthly meeting last night at the
council chamber and their customary
routine of business was gone through.
Before the meeting hael progressed
very far, it was turned into a smoker
by tho arrival on the scene of a big
box of cigars presented to the boys
for their quick work in preventing a
serious conflagration at the redidencc
of Frank Cummins a short time ago.
The treat greatly pleased the fire boys
and they got busy with tho weeds
until tho atmosphere looked like they
might have been called to the place
for duty. Mr. Cummins, token of
appreciation of tho firemen was the
big hit of tho evening and before the
meeting was adjourned tho boys un
animously gave him a vote of thanks
for his remembrance of them.
