FIRE HI JOHN STOCKTON'S MOST OF THE FURNITURE AND CARPETS WERE SAVED John Stockton's House in the East Part of Town Wns Badly Damaged by Fire The home of John Stockton i in the east part of town, Wednes'j day morning was the scene of! one of the worst tires this city has had for some time. The (am ilv had only been up a short time] when Clara went out of doors and | on returning told tier parents she j believed the house was on lire. 1 They looked, but failed to lind a I blaze, but on going up stairs j found the roof to be on fire. 'I'lie tire department was called i and in a short time the lire was! extinguished. The second storv of the house was nearly all burned 1 and the water ran through and ; ruined the plaster and all the: lower rooms. The furniture was all saved with very few scratches and rugs were all taken out. It is a big loss for them. The 1 house was insured for$l,500. The family were unable to find a house to move in, so they will store their goods and stay at the home of Mrs. Margaret Maddox until the house can be rebuilt, plastered and papered. The origin of the tire is not known, but it is supposed that it was caused from a defective flue. Many, who helped fight the fire say there is no comparison in the pressure of the new water plant to that of the old one. This fact makes it encouraging to the fire boys who have always been willing but had nothing to work "With Cor several years the power has not been sufficient to extinguish a blaze of any conse quence. Push This Enterprise Do you remember what hap pened last year? Falls City won the county and South-Eastern Nebraska Field Meets. The South-Eastern Nebraska Meet was held at Falls City. This town is centrally located and has better accommodations than any other town in the league. Now if the students and citizens want the meet here, now is the time to work. The field meets are a source of enjoyment to the citizens and a benefit to the stu dent. Does not the welfare of your boy interest you enough to push this enterprise? Were you not fully repaid last year? Falls City has been t-uccessful ior the last two years in both the county and South-Eastern Meet. Should she succeed in these meets this year she will have won three years in succession, which en tities her. under the athletic rules, to hold these trophies for ever. Orange and Black.
