XTjishinsrfon St. OPEN Phone A young housewife left her home on East Irvin avenue yesterday afternoon and went down to pick up her husband. She had been gone cnly a short while when her neighbors were convinced that, judging from the amount of smoke issuing from the kitchen window, the house was on fire. They investigated before sending in an alarm, however, and found that smoke does not necessarily mean fire—it can. also mean burning "beans. Attempts at airing the house of the smoke were rather futile, but the neighbors persevered and were just leaving the house when in walked the lady, her husband and the husband's boss. Things like that always happen on the evening: the boss is coming to dinner. Nothing daunted, the lady walked out in her garden and picked some more beans. Dinner was a little late, but they had beans. On July 21 a young man in Buenos Aires sat down and wrote a letter to the editor of the Hagerstown Mail.
