Deputy Fire Commissioner Gives
Another Warning to People
of Cities and Towns.
Chief Deputy Fire Commission
er G. A. Randall of Nebraska has
recently sent out a circular letter
to the olllcials of cities, officers of
Commerical clubs and other per
sons, calling the attention of the
people to the (lrc losses annually
suffered by the communities
throughout the United States,
calling the fire loss "our national
Among some of the startling
facts stated is that in the United
States the annual per capita fire
waste is estimated at .$2.51, and
in Europe at only 33 cents. "Un
fortunately no sense of the crim
inality and immorality of need
less lire waste has yet moved us."
Mr. Randall states that the
average annual fire loss in the
United States for five years, end
ing with 1907, was $252,000,000,
and the losses for 1908 aggregated
over $200,000,000. We burn up
8500 worth of property every min
ute, day and night, as shown by
Could this have been avoided is
the question for us to solve. Did
it happen by carelessness? A
carelessly thrown match, care
b'ssly used gasoline, in filling a
stove, cleaning clothes, careless
'use of kerosene, lighting a fire,
upsetting a lamp etc., defective
Hues, stovepipes passing through
wooden partitions, lace curtains
blowing across lighted gas jets,
children allowed to play with
matches or bonfires, stoves placed
Joo near unprotected wall, care
lessly thrown cigar or cigarette
stubs, old waste and rubbish al
lowed to accumulate around cel
lar ways or in coiners of halls,
public buildings and private
dwellings. These are only a few
f the causes of careless fires.
Experts say that over 50 per cent
of the fire waste could be pre
vented with a small degree of

Mr. and Mr.
and son, Fred,
Mr. and Mrs.
. Henry Shoemaker
and John Uye, also
Henry Thiele and
John Wundcrlich, all from near
.Nehawka, composed a parly that
passed through lMallsnioulh yes
terday via the automobile route
for Omaha. After spending the day
in the metropolis they returned
home, again passing through this
city, and slopped for a few mom
ents' visit with county seat
friends. In conversation with Mr.
Shoemaker, he tells us that in all
his life he has never seen better
roads from his farm to Platts
mouth than they are at the pres
ent time, but he cannot say so
much of their condition after
crossing the Platte river on to
Omaha. This road is, however,
receiving a great deal of work at
the present time. This certainly
proves that the farmers of Cass
county are up and coining for the
"good roads" proposition and are
doing their share to keep them
good. Most all the farmers are
looking after the drag now and it
is sure telling work.

One of IMattsmouth's prosper
ous young merchants was seen
visiting the office of the county
judge this morning, having with
him the required number of wit
nesses to make a binding con
tract of marriage. As far as the
record discloses today no license
was issued, but the Journal read
ers may not be surprised to see
the young man's name in the list
of the married about Monday next.
We have no authority lo announce
the marriage or we should do so,
but it is hardly fair not lo give
the gentle reader a tip that some
thing may be expected Monday.
