Fire of unknown origin broke out in the boardwalk amusement section at Ocean City Tuesday morning, wiping out an entire city block, between South Division and Worcester Sts., and causing an estimated loss of $150,000, partly covered by insurance. Suspicion that the fire may have been the work of a firebug in the opinion of several residents and property owners lead to an official investigation. Reports from those who were on the scene shortly after the blaze was discovered coincide with statements that a blue colored flame shot skyward as from an explosion, igniting the entire rear sections of the Conway, Bryan and Rapoport Brothers amusement buildings. Eight volunteer fire companies from the Eastern Shore responded to the alarm from Ocean City and succeeded in confining the flames to the one block. The fire broke out in the rear of the Rapoport Brothers' boardwalk amusement store and spread rapidly. Places destroyed and estimated losses are: Playland, owned by Thomas H. Conway and Joseph Bryan, $30,000; Rapoport Brothers' store, owned by Joseph and Nathan Rapoport, $25,000; Fun House, owned by Thomas H. Conway, $10,000; Jester's Restaurant, owned by Lloyd Jester, $4,500; cigarette store, owned by Jack Burns, $1,500; Joe's, owned by A. H. Monkhouse, $1,500; amusement store, owned by Jimmie Velis and Thomas Conway, $1,500. Damage to Ocean City's boardwalk and lighting system is estimated at $1,000. The nearby buildings saved from the flames included the Capitol Theatre and Dolle's Candy Store. The firemen also man- aged to save the new pier just finished a few weeks ago. It is said that considerable currency was lost in the flames, representing Labor Day receipts which proprietors were unable to bank because of the national holiday. Fire companies which responded to the alarm included those from Ocean City, Berlin, Newark, Snow Hill, Salisbury, Delmar, Laurel and Pocomoke City. The fire, by coincidence, started at the very street where the great Ocean City fire of December, 1925, was checked and wiped out one full block with the exception of the Capitol Theatre, which was saved. Mayor McCabe announced that work on the construction of a new boardwalk in the fire area will start immediately. Egg Producers Program Set For Md. Poultry Day The problems of Maryland's $23 million egg industry will have the attention of some of the nation's outstanding production and hiarket- ing authorities on September 15, according to Professor George D. Quigley, of the University of Maryland poultry department. Quigley explains that a special egg producer's program has been arranged ' as part of the Maryland 'Poultry Day activities at the University. The egg producer's program starts at 1 p. m. under the chairmanship of Mr. Leland Graham, of Southern States Cooperative, and vice-president of the Maryland State Poultry Council. , Dr. Wilbur O. Wilson, of the University of California, is the first speaker. He will discuss environmental factors affecting egg production. J. C., Taylor, Extension poul- tryman, of New Jersey, will discuss modern methods in his talk, "An Up- to-the-Minute Program for Profitable Egg Production." Maryland egg producers who want to improve their marketing practices --with consequent increase in profits --can get some good tips from Dr. J. C. Huttar, of GLF Cooperative. His talk is on "Getting the High Dollar for Your Eggs." Dr. Huttar is past president of the Poultry and Egg National Board and is described by Quigley as "a recognized authority on egg marketing." Earl Mack, West Sunbury, Pa., owner of one of the largest commercial laying flocks in the Northeast, will discuss the outlook in this region in his talk, "The Road Ahead for Northeastern Producers." A panel discussion devoted to individual problems of production, marketing and disease control on Maryland farms has been arranged to wind up the program. This panel will be manned by Norman Rebert, of Westminster; John Martinuk, of Elkton; Joseph Coshun, of Union Bridge, and Dr. L. M. Dansky, of Hagerstown. Professor Quigley will serve as moderator for the panel. Mrs. J. Kemp Stevens Insurance and Annuities The Equitable Life Assurance Society U. S. Phone 14-W Denton, ML Dr. Fred J.

O dear son how I do think of the years gone by, How you were by my side helping with little things, Yes, with that beautiful smile and warm white hands, Always ready, always there. Yes, all our dreams can pass so fast, So soon can they vanish from sight, Yes, there is twlight and evening stars, Like the shadows of the coming night. And after that the dark, And there will be no sadness or farewell When I have crossed the bar. For we will not pass this way again. Mother, Mrs. L. J. Pippin.

Days of silence still come over us, Secret tears do often flow, Memory keeps you ever near us, Though you passed away four years ago. Sadly missed by wife, Clara M.
