BROOKVILLE Bemoqut ESTABLISHED 1838, BROOKVILLE, INDIANA, THURSDAY, MAY 11, 1933 NINETY-FIFTH YEAR NO. 19 tate Librarian The FLAMES DESTROY L $40,000 Loss Estimated As' Fire Sweeps Roller Mills An overheated hearing in a wheat cleaning machine caused a fire which, resulted in the complete destruction of the Metamora Holier Mills, owned by Joe Clark &- P.m. of Metamora, ' late Wednesday afternoon. Mr. Clark estimated the damage, partially; covered by insurance, at $40,000. Equipment and grain were destroyed, the flour and feed in the ware-; house being all that was saved. ! The fire was discovered at about ' 3:30 p. m. when a passer-by saw ; flames leaping from the upper part : of the elevator and notified Mr. Claik. j Calls were immediately sent to the Brookville and P a'.esville Fire De-! partments but ; account of the dis-i tance neither liopartmrnt was able; to respond. Due to the inadequate fire-fighting- devices of the town, the conflagration gained such headway that workers weie unable to cope with it, and were forced to stand bv helplessly while flames consumed the j buildings. I The Metamora Roller Mills was j one of the few remaining mills operating solely by water power, in: this section of the country. The loss! of the Mills marks the second des-1 truotion bv fire at Metamora within a week, the home of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Martindale having been burned to the ground last Tuesday night.

SENIOR CLASS PLAY TO BE CHEN MAY 17 Three Act Comedy "Applesauce" To Be Presented In School Auditorium "Applesauce", a blight amusing and cheerful comedy in three acts will be presented by members cf the senior class on Wednesday evening.

Donald Lawrence: Mrs. Jennie Baldwin, Dorothy Tal-bert ; Hazel Robinson, Imogene Thomas; Matt McAllister, Donald Clark: Bill McAllister. Francis Kuehn and Rollo Jenkins. Howard Nutty. Tins comedy of American life, produced by special arrangement with Samuel French of New York, is a production of Barry Conner and has enjoyed a successful run throughout the country. It is one of those typically American comedies of small town folk in which an amusing set of characters are revealed through flashes of interest and love. It is shown that "applesauce" tin other words, cheerful optimism and the ability to tell other people how nice they are will surmount most of the obstacles in this life. Hazel Robinson has foolishly engaged herself to a young man called Jenkins. But all along she is really in love with Bill McAllister and the complication which thus arises keeps the audience in suspense. Come see how Bill manages. Don't forget the date. Tickets can be brought from any senior at the new. low price of 23c, adults, and 15c, children.
