Miss Coleman pointed out that 10 per cent ol all the I ires are preventable if a few simple precautions are taken, poor housekeeping is one of the main reasons for our current record-breaking fire loss, she said. She explained tlvat poor housekeeping on the farm means letting rubbish and old lurnitnrc accumulate in barns, allies, and oni- buiklings; allowing chimney to become clogged with soot s-iel permitting combustible deael vines, brush and weeds to pile up along fence rows and near farm buildings. All these, she said, avc targets for n stray spark or a lias- lily dLscardeel cigarette. How well Mississippi County farm families are prepared to fight a fire in case one occurs anel how well they keep their heads in time of emergency may prevent not only ' the loss of property but the loss of human lives, she added. fire prevention and preparedness, in case fire breaks out are the year-rounet. every day duty of not only properly owners bin. cf " ' than character, tlml he lias never le&n convicted of :i felony or other ciiinc involving moral tnrpituoe; that no ns: 1 to sell beer by Ihc? undersigned has been revoked wilhin iive years last past; anel thai the untler- ,ned has never been convic-U-el of vi-ilatini'. the laws of tin;, slat?, or any ulher state, relating to the sale of alcoholic Liquors.
