Does Away With Use Hydrants. of Mention was made a day or two ago of the fact that City Commissioner Harry Ruthrauff would Install sidewalk flushers and sprinkler hydrants to do away with the necessity ot taking: * ter lor flushers and sprinklers from the fire hydrants This Is an improvement that Mr Ruthrauff and Fire Chief Devora ha"\ e been wanting for aome time OBJECTION The fire hdrant is made to be ooen- ed In full when water Is taken from It Most men filling flushers and sprinkler wagons open it onl* part way In that position one-half of the full capacity ot the hydrant is gains out the waste box down In the ground Sometimes nearb basements are flooded from such waste water This la a. damage to the hydrant and the neighbor- Ing properties Continued use of hydrants for such purposes is apt to set them out of order so tnat work at fires is interfered with Usinj flush boxes obviates all of this MADE IX DECATUR The new box Is about one foot square and is set at the curb flush with the sidewalk The ones being put in In Decatur are made by the H Mueller Manufacturing; company They answer the purpose of a sillcock on a house, making a place to connect a, hose COST These boxes cost about $25 apiece They cost ua less because they are being put In at the same time the fire hydrants on North Main are beln? moved. Three boxes will be put in Xorth Main and another at the corner of Water and Marietta -where a bubbling fountain Is hemg put in Decatur Boys Penetrate Wilds of Tennessee. Two Decatur boys. Samuel Edd and Sam Bradfield, returned Wednesda\ of last -week from a river trip thiough Tennessee. Some of the experiences with the Tennessee mountaineers that t^ey re'ate are interesting Thej Tvent f'-om Decatur to St Lou's by rail from St. Louis down the Mississippi by boat to the Ohio **iver UD found some amusing character!. They report that among tne mountaineers there are many "Velvet Joes' of real life Many of these backwoodsmen have yet to see a railroad. They still harvest the'r small wheat crops with the old fashioned cradles and let the piga and cow* use the main thoroughfares In one of the mountain villages, they saw a Ford automobile winding Its way down the main street among the cows, pigs and mule teams This was the only sign of civilization they caw in the mountains The Inhabitants live in rough log shacks and seem satisfied on little or nothing About the only real oooupa- tlons in the mountains were logging and making "still whlskj The boys said that they found many places where you could leave your Jug and money and come back in a half hour and find it full of "moonshine ' OLD SOLDIER'S TALES. One of the most Interesting characters they met on the trip according to the boys, was an old confederate sol- die" who made the trip down the river with them He related many Interesting tales of Shlloh, Chattanooga and other battles of the war of the rebellion This v,a.s his first trip away from home since the war. The boss returned on the river boat» the same way they went Winslow Pierce Asks That Commission Wait Another delay to the Wabaah reorganization plans occurred Frida\, according to word from St. Louis It was caused "by «- telegram sent by Chairman Winslow S Pierce of the "ft abash committee to Chairman Atkinson of the Missouri Public Service Commission, which requested that further consideration of the plans by the state commission be suspended until the commission is further advised by "Wabash officials The hearing before the state t»odi ^hich had been eet for Alonday, June 29, has been annulled on that account OVER MOBERLY SHOPS It Is thought that a cash settlement of all just claims against the Wabash n Missouri and a further consideration of the demand made on the road by the city of Mbberlv for the rebuilding of the burned shops there is the cause of the delay. Arrangements must le made by the Wabash for the settlement of claims and an agreement with Mo- berl\ must be accomplished before the plans may be passed on by state go\ - ernmente This question of the cash settlement of o\ ercharga claims in Missouri and that of unsecured claims In Illinois and other states has been the most serious stumbling block to the reorganization ] proceedings during the past month j The state commissions to whom the plans were submitted by the Wabasn Bell Telephone Company Operators. --Photo by Rembrandt Studio Lower Row (from left to right) -- Susie Martin, Myrtle Barnes, Eleanor Gleeson, Marie Gresn Eva Chapman, Margaret Kelly Maude Brockway Mayme Warner, Mae McFetridge Hazel Y o u n g Second Row---Margaret Sandon, Lena Remley, Juanita Greefl, Ora S c r j b n e r Lucille Green Zula Phillips Gertrude Morris Vivian Campbell, Bess Ethndge Third Row--Miss Berlgan, Ethel Collett, Edith McElroy, Hilda R u f f n e r Rose McLaughlin, Mattle Topping Flo Burtschi Mrs J B McMillln Top How--Gertrude Seltz, Ethel Skinner Theresa Smith, Mamie Weti N e l l i e Frederick Pink Bells Served in the Ice Cream.
