The results might be that a fire would occur while it was away. The results would be that if town property burned while the engine was in the country that the insurance company would refuse to pay the loss and then the looser would bring suit against the town for damages.

McLane, died yesterday morning in her home one-half hour after she had been run over by a Ford car driven by Mrs. Lawrence Wade, The coroner's verdict yesterday afternoon exonerated Mrs. Wade completely and. gave the cause of death as accidental. Funeral services will be held in the Methodist church at 2.00 oclock Thursday afternoon. The accident occurred on the corner of Toner and Main streets. Little Jean had just returned home from the Daily Vacation Bible School. She had failed to bring home her rubbers and Mrs. McLane had sent her back to' the school house for them. Mrs. Wade was driving west on Toner avenue at the rate of about fifteen miles per hour, according to eye witnesses. Just as she reached the corner, Jean was returning home from the school-house. Jean started to cross ahead of the car so Mrs. Wade turned to the right to miss her. But Jean must have become excited for she turned and started back to the north side of the street. She backed right in front of the car. Probably the best meeting which the Chamber of Commerce has had was a banquet given by the academy io the organization last Thursday night in the academy dining room. Thirty-nine men gathered around the table to enjoy the feast and to hear the talks of the evening. Although the academy has been here for many years, it was the first time that many of those present had had the opportunity to see the interior of the dining room when the cadets were being fed. The sight alone was a feast for the visitors from the time the cadets marched into the room until the motion for adjournment was made. G. E.

It was one round of good things they toasted Mr, McKown to. The invocation on the repast and the program was given by Abner Moyer, of Silver Lake. Those who responded to toasts were: Mrs. J. W.

Major George B. Norton was chairman of the day and the honored guests were George Parsons, John PENClLCCfcfiftNY PHILADELPHIA U.S.A. Oswalt, Daniel Culp, James Parks, B. Uline, David Anglemyer and Anthony Hunt. Interesting reminiscences and experiences of the veterans in the great conflict from '61 to '65 were related by the veterans which were of great interest to the Kiwanians. It was one of the most interesting meet-in irs held by the Kiwanians in some time and was an auspicious commencement of the Memorial day spirit that we will commemorate on Friday. Lieut. Rich of the U. S. aviation service, who arrived in an aeroplane during the forenoon and his mecha-nican were also guests of the club. Mr. Rich's father was a veteran in the Confederate service and gave a very interesting short talk of his father's service in the rebellion. Mr. Rich also told of the U. S. aviation service and invited the Kiwanians and the public to examine the fleet of government planes at the Vern StahJy field, east of town, when they are here Saturday and Sunlay. R. K.

Grise, Bremen brother of Fred, and who is the director of the Jazz Band that was in attendance at the reception of the evening, and the dance. Fred responded briefly, and the feast was on. When this was finished the elements turned loose a deluge of rain, accompanied by lightning and thunder that temporarily put the light service out in town. This lasted only a few minutes, however, and the guests retired to the McKown Sei-vice Station, which had been prepared for the reception to the people of the community, who, in spite of the extremely bad weather, were there in great and appreciative numbers. There were flowers for the ladies, cigars for the men and balloons for the children. The Joe McKown Jazz Band, than which there has been none better ever in this community, was present to aid one of the most pleasing parts of the evening's entertainments. They played Jazz music of the most "wriggly" kind, but to show they knew the better music, they gave waltz numbers of the most delightful nature and sym phonies, as well. Joe McKown, brother of Fred, is the leader, and his organization has travelled from coast to coast, from the gulf to the Lakes, and is now a member of the celebrated B. F. Keith circuit. Their music was delightful. It won't be many weeks until the fire engine will be established in the town hall.
