INDIANA WOMEN FORM A WALKING CLUB Hike Out Nightly In Search of Health and Recreation, EXPECTTOGOTOPUIOTTAWNEY Mrs. John Adams, aged 70 years, of Marion Center, was so badly burned this morning that it is thought she cannot recover. As she was alone in the house at the time it is difficult to learn the particulars of the affair. About 9:30 o'clock, Harry Shields who was standing at the door of the Shields pharmacy, eaw Mrs. Adams, enveloped in flames, at her door. He called to his brother, Dr.B. R. Shields, and started to the woman's aid, his .brother following. The aged woman was frantic with fiain and apparently unable to help herself. While one of the men began tearing the burning clothing from the woman the other deluged her with water until the flames were extinguished. Mrs. Adams was in a pitiable plight. ta »t*^is^Srf«fc^N^'^ > v* i x^'s-*''»^>^xxxrf'%xxxs^N«< I x*'xxs^xy 1 N^^ W. R. C, INSTALLS OFFICERS Business Meeting Followed by a Social and Sapper.

Stsmsttjr partly cloudy. The hair was burned from her head and her clothes wore but charred frag- menta. Drs. Shields, Fleming and Stewart were soon at her side administering lotions to relieve her suffering. It was found that she was badly burned from head to foot. Mrs. Adams has been able to tell but little of the affair. Her husband had left the house but a few minutes before to go to the barber shop, and thinks she was working about the kitchen stove. The supposition is that when her clothing caught fire she ran to the door to summon help, and that her passage through the house fanned the flames into greater intensity. Mrs. Adams is widely known in the vicinity of Marion Center. Sne has two sons, Herbert and Harry, who are employed in the vicinity of Altoina. +S^S^t~*t •*^>-S^-"^X^X^*^^*^N^X^^%X%*W%^ BASKETBALL SERIES FINISHED Seniors Won Last Game with Juniors —Freshmen Champions.
