ovan who has managed the Yankees
tor the last three seasons. Muggins
conferred with Branch Rickey, presi
dent of the St. Louis Nationals, last
week they were unable to reach terms.
He then accepted the oder from the
New oYrk club.
Huggins has spent his entire major
league career in the National league
up to the present. He was purchased
by Cincinnati from St. Paul in 1913
and played there until 1910, when he
was traded to St. Louis. He was ap

Preside Ruppert said Donovan will
not be retained in any capacity, al
though Ruppert paid an eloquent trib

anything which has happened during
his business career.
Huggins said he had no immediate
plans for the club, although he thinks
he has a nucleus of a strong team.

The Blue and White eleven that will

opponents on the qui vive. '

Burned to Death
An unidentified man was burned t?
death yesterday when a home
constructed shanty in which he lived
at Second and H streets, West Coun
cil Bluffs, caught fire.
The man had lived in the vicinity
of the old dump, just east of Carter
lake, for several vears. He was a
foreigner, apparently about 60 or 65
years old. He had no employment,
lived off the dump, and since Jast
March had occupied the little shanty

built the shack of boxes, pasteboards
The fire was discovered bv Mrs
J. H. Hewlett, who lives near by. The
fire department was summoned, but
by the time it arrived the shanty
was completely burned and the flames
had spread to the willows to the rear.
While firemen were quenching the
flames burning the willows and en
dangering other huts in the neighbor
hood, Mrs. Hewlett, watching the
smoldering ruins of the shanty, saw
what appeared to be the man's body
pinned under a log. A fireman was
called" and the body, almost burned
to a crisp, ws found.
Mrs. Hewlett said the man was a
hermit, who refused all acquaintance

would not permit anybody to enter his
hovel, and when neighbors offered
him food, scorned it, saying "I

. What Our Telephone
Until a very short time ago we maintained at our offices a Trouble
Department, but this has now been done away with. We don't like troubla
any more than you do, and so we have abolished it.
Tfcere may be complaints in the future, but we purpose dealing with
them so promptly and removing their cause so completely that they will
never again be able to magnify into Trouble. Our Service Department
gives this assurance.
In this Service Department there is a telephone and we want our
patrons to accustom themselves to using it.
When a good doctor takes charge of a case, serious or trifling, his
first scientific step is to remove the cause of the ailment It is the same in
this department. We have a "doctor" whose business it is to eliminate
trouble by removing the cause. Upon being informed over the telephone
of your difficulty, our service "doctor" will be dispatched instanter to get
at the germ of that complaint.
If there is anything wrong with your service, no matter from what
cause, we hope you will call Tyler Three One Hundred and ask for the
Service Department. It will do the rest.'
YOUR ELECTRIC SERVICE COMPANY does not evade com
plaints. On the contrary, it welcomes them in order that they may be met
with prompt response and equally prompt remedial results. If you have
a complaint, tell it to us first, for disinterested neighbors cannot help
you, while we have many capable service men who can.
You have no fault to find nor any suggestion too trival for us to seek
most eagerly. It is this perfect frankness and candor that will make our
Our new Service Department Telephone Number is Tyler Three One
Hundredremember it the next time you have a grievance, big or small
for they are all of the same size to us. We are entitled to the chance to
correct our faults if you will only let us know about them. That is what
our telephone is for.
