North East * Kossuth Page Ledyard Community *?f HOMEATFLYNN FARM DAMAGED IN FIRST FIRE Amateur Night Crowds (Jet Unexpected Excitement on Trip Ledyard?:; Just before the amateur contest Saturday evening the fire whistle blew. The fire was at first reported to be at the Wm. Flynn farm, but was really at the Glenn Behse farm. The crowd quickly scattered, many going to help. The fire was in the house and had seemed to start In the bed room. It was quickly put out and the frame of the house was saved but a great deal of damage was done to the interior and to the furnishings. The Behses had come to town and the origin of the fire Is not known. After the fire was out the crowd returned and the amateur contest continued. It had just been ended a few minutes when the fire whistle blew again. This time the fire was in town in the home of Mrs. Henry Gray. The fire started in a closet in the rooms occupied by Mrs. Moulton and Alice and again the cause was unkown. It was put out before much damage was done to the house but Alice Moulton lost all of her clothing. The fire on the Glenn Behse farm was within 30 or 40 minutes after .hey came to town and started In :he bedroom. They have no Idea as to the cause as yet. All of their clothing, bedding, winter things, which were stored, besides all of the bedroom furniture and some others was destroyed and damage done to the furniture In other rooms. The other fire which occurred an hour or so later, was in the home of Mrs. Behse's mother, Mrs. Gray, and started in a closet under the stairway, the closet being in the rooms occupied by Mrs. George Moulton and daughter, Alice. Mrs. Moulton, who is spending the summer with her sister, Mrs. Butterfield at Swea City, came home about 8 o'clock, hung a coat in this closet and then went on down town with Mrs. Gray. Within an hour and a half the fire had started and the house was locked In the meantime. Mostly clothing belonging to Alice Moulton, who works In the Lentsch cafe was destroyed in this fire.

Grant News The only reason that some of us survived the experience is that we were standing on and touching nothing but some dry non-metallic substance not connected to a ground, such as a floor, a nig or a chair, which was a sufficiently good insulator to protect us from fatal shock. We will not always be so fortunate if we remain so careless. Be careful with these extension cords, sockets, and lighting fixtures. It will be well worth your time to let us make a thorough check of them.
