When Kollasch came .'in-from the field he went into 'the house and smelled smoke.' He rusn'ecl upstairs and noticed,• that a stream of water was rushing down the stair steps. He was unable 'to reach the top floor due to the heavy smoke and called for help. The fire had started in the bath room, cause unknown. - In ithe corner of the room near ithe stool was a waste basket of plastic. The fire started in this basket, burning the basket and it's contents and the plastic wall tiles and also a plastic curtain around the bathtub. With the terrific heal of the plastic basket which was near the base of the tank on the stool it burst the pipe letting out the water which extinguished the flames. But the floors upstairs and down were flooded with water and water was running through the ceilings on the .woolen rugs in the dining and living room. Every room upstairs and all the bedding and clothes were covered with soot. It is estimated that at least $2,500 damage was done by the fire.

TtOtA Her. & That* A street cleaner was fifed for day-dreaming , » » . , he couldn't keep his mind in the gutter, * * * * It seems thai the gate broke down between Heaven and Hell. St. Peter appeared at the broken part of the gate and called to the OevM. "Ht>v, Satan, it's your turn to fix it this time. "Sorry," he replied. "My men are too busy to worry about fixing a mere gate," "Weil, then," growled Peter, "I'll have to sue you for breaking our agreement." "Oh yeah," said the Devil. "Where ore you going to gel a lawyer?" * * * * Just as the automatic wash* ing machine started to take over washday drudgery in 1920, so today the automatic gas laundry dryer is eliminating all the heavy work entailed in drying clothes. Time was when most homemakers trudged up the basement stops with a heavy basket of wet clothes, stretched a clothesline, stooped over hundreds of times to hang up the clothes. More often than not, a storm came up and the homemaker had to scurry out ,to struggle with flapping, soggy clothes, carry them indoors 1 and hang them wherever she could in basement, bathroom, attic, kitchen or porch. The latin' dry dryer. takes over this this long list of heavy chores. -K * * * " "Looks like a pretty smart do$ you've got there." "He is. All you have to say is 'Are you coming or aren't you?' and he either comes or he doesn't."

' --•*'..* * % * "Gee, Dad, I wish you .wpuld let Mom drive. It's more exciting." * * * * . As soon as the washing is. done, all laundry can be tossed into the new automatic gas dryer direct from the washer. The automatic, timer is switched to the number of minutes of drying time required. From then ori you don't have to do. a thing. • Thermostats control the heat and hold' the temperature at the most suitable drying point. At the end of the drying period, the time automatically switches- off. The timer dial can be set so that clothes are completely", dried for immediate storing or damp-dried for ironing. -K * * * "My credit is really improving," commented one businessman; to another. . "Why, I went'over to the bank .his morning to borrow a thousand dollars, and the loan officer eceived me very politely." "He lent you the money, of course?" "No, not quite. But he hesitated a moment before refusing me." * * *. * Mr Robertson is a very well-preserved genlleman for his age, but he must seem incredibly old to his little grandaughter Susan. Susan had been sitting on his knee, examining him closely, when she asked, "Grandpa, 1 were you in the ark with 1 Noah?" ."Why, of course not}" exclaimed Mr Robertson. Susan looked puzzled, pondered the matter for a minute, and then piped up: 'If that's so.
