She was in the front part of the house and bad dinneV cooking. Coming into the kitchen she found one whole side of the room on fire. Behind the stove were two cans of oil. She had presence of mind to get them away from the flames before calling for "help. Neighbors ran to the rescue and with a few buckets of water soon extlngoisbed the flames. Going to the fire the fire track met with an accident. Something came loose on the insides of the engine and shoved a bol t through the case. The only real serious damage was toget a lot of grease . and oil on Gib Mc^rd who was driving. It will soon be ready to go again.

All others, the society claims, are harmless enough to be made into household pets, and if treated as pets make ample return in the quantity of vermin that they destroy. With all due respect to the Reptile society we don’t want any snakes in ours. We prefer to fight rats, mice and even “cooties” preferably to having a pet of any kind of a snake about the place we stay. Miss Mabel Lance, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B. F.
