Yesterday afternoon the funeral
of the late Mrs. Henry Kikenbary
was held at her l&to home, south
west of this city, and were attend
ed by a large number of friends,
vrho had known this worthy lady
so well during her lifetime. The
llev. Allan G. Wilson of St. Luke's
c-hurch of this city conducted the
services at the home, using the
beautiful Episcopal service for
the dead, and the relatives derived
much comfort from the words of
hope given by the minister.
The floral tributes were lavish
and silently attested the high re
gard held by the community for
this worthy pioneer lady, whose
life had been spent so largely in
this locality. A choir from St.
Luke's church furnished the
music, being selections that had
been favorites of the departed
lady. The body was laid to its
last rest in the Eikenbary ceme
tery, south of this city, being
gently laid away by old neighbors
and friends residing' near the

sorrow to the relatives and
friends, they will be able to carry
with them the remembrance of
her gentle kindly life and it will

blessed memory of a life well
spent. There were a large num

neonle of our city should
pelled to pay $3,000 a year more
for the use of the phones? When
they asked permission lo buy and
consolidate the phones they
claimed that they could give us
better service, and do it cheaper.
It is easier to keep up one line
than two; cheaper to run one
office than two; could do the work
with less help. Now they come
to your home, put up another
phone, don't ask your permission,
and now say you must pay Si. 50,
charging you 50 cents a month
more. They say they have spent.
$12,000 on new improvements, but
we doubt it very much. If they
have interest at 10 per cent, it
would be $2,100. The book I have
numbers up to 500 phones; at 50
cents increase that would make
$3,000 a vear increase. We don't
believe it is justice, and hope tin
railway commission will see that
we get justice. The people are
not in favor of monopolies, and
if we must have I hem let them be
controlled. Our taxes are high,
and the cry is, "Everything should
be cheaper." Then why not
cheaper phone service in place of
trying to burden our people with
more? Give us justice and there
will be no fault found; but we can
do withoutthe. phones, and I for
ane 'will try, sooner than let. a few
men monopolize a business and

Saturday afternoon about 4
o'clock the lire alarm was sound
ed for a bad lire that had broken
out at the home of Virgil Mollis,
in the west portion of the city,
and tho department at once re

two miles from the hose house,

reached the scene of the ilre the
whole upper portion of the struct
ure was in flames and entirely be
yond control. The place is
located several blocks out of the
lire limits, and the hose was not
sufficient to reach the fire, which
slowly but surely gained headway
against the efforts of the firemen
and neighbors. The flames for a
lime threatened the adjoining
residence of Jacob Stenner, but by
the heroic efforts, of the firemen
it was saved from the spreading
lire, although for a few minutes
it seemed that both houses were
loomed to destruction. The
home of Mr. Mollis was complele-
y destroyed and they only saved
part of their household goods
from the lower floor of the house.
The lire is supposed to have starl-

with the lack of water had soon
