The fire department anticipates Christmas with its usual trepimtf^n. Nut that Christmas will certainly^ bring with it sorrow and pain but that it may. Christmas is another occasion ^n which people grow careless and haz.ird life and property in the enthusiasm of the Yuletlde hours. The Christmas tree, with Its cotton snow and filmy decorations Is aglow with burning candles. A slight breeze and th& snow is afire and the house in ;;aiiser. Santa Claus is playing his ann.ial antics for the amusement of the children. His long alfalfa whiskers swish past a light, the whiskers ignite and Santa's life is endangered. .And so on. The list of ways In which accidents with fatal termination may occur Is lengthy. But all of these •angers may be avoided if the proper care is exercised. " It is hardly of any avail to sound- the note of warning about the possibility of Christmas fires. People will say they know their bu^ness and do iiot need any suggestions." . Sure, they'll be careful. But will they? Just as a reminder and in the hope thht they will be taken tn helpful siiirit in which they were prepared, C:hief Joe McCarty of the lola fire :-ompany. has called attention to the following "dont's:" Do not decorate with paper, cotton or any Inflammable material, but use metallic tln^jel or some other non-inflammable material. Set the tree securely. If you must have snow use asbestos fibre. Do not allow children to light candles. The tree Itself wilt burn when dry-. Hide the matches fro mthe children during the .nlldays. Resides being careful about tlie Christinas tree, be careful about fire In stoves, churches and In halls. W Mch lamps, gas and even electric llg'i.ts. See that decorations are not near these. Watch the smokers. Take no chances with fire. Even your In- s»iranee jiollcles. If nothing else require that you take these precautions. Movement to (hnt End Luiinchcd at | Lincoln Today.
