THE R. fill U. Starts in Barrel of Waste Paper. "When the city firemen reached til* 1 , local Railroad Y. M. C.

According to Y. M. C. A. officers the fire was started f r o m a barrel of waste paper in front of the furnace. It was first discovered by means of the smoke which filtered through the floor. An investigation disclosed the barrel w h i c h had burned out, but the fire under the floor was unnoticed. A Wabash man entering the office later called attention to amoka slowly curling above some packages of clothes back of the desk enclosure and almost at the same time red flames made their appearanot? after eating holes in the wall and floor. The building was filled 'With smoke almost at once and a fire call was sent jn Immediately. Members of the association soon trained a small hose through the holes in the floor, but the stream waa not effective, falling harmlessly to the basement, floor. The fire department controlled the dangerous blaze In less than ten minutes after they reached the place. It IB thought that $100 will cover the damage done to the builSing. There was practically no water damage, the loss including only parts of the floor in the two rooms and the watnscoatlng in the lunch room. Conference With General Dickson Tuesday. County Clerk M. E.

In other days, when the current moved more slowly than it does now, a vacation respite was not so much,a matter of necessity. The chief ends to be sought in a vacation are variety, a change of air, of scene and of environment. Here is the weakness of the vacation-at-home idea. This may give rest, but If one wants to be freshened in epirit as well as rested in body, he must get out of the old ruts altogether. Travel is becoming an increasingly popular way of spending a vacation. Since the Titanic disaster two years ago, acean travel has been made safer than ever before. Many people go to Europe Just for the trip, and it one loves the water there Is nothing more refreshing than ocean voyage. But u i t h o u t leaving our shores one may j find all the delights of travel amidst constantly changing scenes. Our 1 Jand is rich in choice vacation spots. Seashore, lakeside, mountain retreat, mineral spring, every state has some one or all of these attractions. , Besides having some of the scenic wonders of the world--Xiasara Falls, Yellowstone park. Yosemite valley, the Grand canyon of the Colorado--there is no country which can boast of scenery so grand and so diversified. For those who can afford it. the automobile, and for others, palatial river and lake steamers, and the* finest equipped railroads In the world, all tempt the vacationist to travel as one of the most delightful ways to spend a vacation HENRY TANDA. The funeral of Henry J. Tanda will be held at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon at the family residence, 1028 North Clinton street. The interment will be In Fairlawn cemetery. , MRS. NANCY WILLIAMS.

M. B. church. The Interment will be in Greenwood. Mrs. William* died at 6:20 a. m Friday at the home of her Bister, Mrs. Queenie Glbbs, at Memphis, Tenn. She was sixty years old. She had been a stewardess of St. Peter's A. M. E. church for years. She waa als'o a member of Bt. Francis' Court, No. 10. The funeral services will be conducted by Rev. A. T. Jackson, assisted by Kev. Mr. Crockett. MISS LENA KIRBY. The funeral of Miss Lena Kirby will be held at 10 o'clock Sunday morning at the Church of the Visitation In Illiopolis.

Retailers are selling them at irom 25 to 40 cents a dozen. The prices are expected to advance again before the end of the summer. RICKARD BETTER. William N.

J., July 11--American men who profess to follow fashions' decree will wear suits of English or form-fitting models this fall and winter according to the standards approved yesterday at the opening session of the national association of manufacturing clothiers and designers convention. The opinion of all the delegates in approving the form-fitting styles and their decrees are accented without exception by the leading clothing manufacturers. Overcoats will have the "French back" and vrlll be double breasted. The balmacaan so popular last season was also approved and with slight modification will again be worn this fall. Coats are to be single breasted, cut in very snuglv at the waistline and just a trifle shorter than last season with soft roll lapels and three buttons. Trousers are to he shapely and of medium width. ^Several delegates were of the opinion that the popularity of the new dances were responsible for the demand for form-fitting clothing. The Illinois Rural Letter Carriers in convention at the Y. M. C. A. Saturday voted to expunge from the records ot their meeting the talk made Friday afternoon by the Honorable B. F. Staymates against hard roads. They also extended a "vote of honor" to United States Senator L. Y. Sherman of this state for his talk made to them Saturday morning. PENNY POSTAGE DEMAND. '"There is a popular demand," said Senator Sherman, "for penny postage. Ultimately I favor reduced postage rates and believe it can be brought about, but the postofflce department should be self sustaining and the pay of the employes should be adequate. Until the pay Is made adequate, I could not see my way clear to vote for a reduction, for we want good service and to have It we must pay the men. HE'S A "SUFFRAGE!.'' "3 have never subscribed to the doctrine of cheap men--or women--for I notice in the reports that women are carrying rural routes in some places. I'm a suffrage! myself." ON PARCEL, POST. "There is one thing in doubt in relation to what bearing the parcel post should have on an increase In pay for the rural carriers. We haven't had. parcel post long enough at any one time with a fixed maximum size of package, zone and rate to find out just what that service is going to cost Before the proper rates can be definitely settled, they must get a fixed basis on which to work." WILL, NEED AUTOS. In the line of good roads, something that is becoming a hobby with the carriers, he said he did not know how much longer the horse power would be In general use on rural routes, certainly a s long as the roads were as they are now, but that the time would eventually come when the government | would require "transportation by gasoline" on rural routes. MORE DELAYED BT ARGUMENT. Business of the convention was again delayed considerably Saturday morning by a great deal of discussion ' and argument. Among the first matters to come up was the motion to not j include the speech of B. F. Staymates in the records of the meeting as it did not In any way concur with the ideas of the rural carriers as to roads. A resolution wa_s adopted asking the j National Association of Rural Letter Carriers In their convention to pass a resolution for a bill to provide that rural carriers, In addition to the $1,200 maximum salary limit, be allowed $300 a year for wagon and horse care and cost. TALK ON'PENSIONING. L. E. Swartz of Chicago, treasurer of the National Association of Civil Service Employes, made a talk to the meeting on the Hamlli bill, which is j the one providing for pensioning of I aged civil service employes. He pre- ' sented some resolutions along this line and it was the intent of the convention to endorse his resolutions, but through an oversight, the resolution as passed was "the endorsement of the Hamill bill." A sad feature of the morning session was a message to President Fred S. Putnam from his home in Aurora, telling of the death of hlE father there. Mr. Putnam left immediately for bis horn*. INCREASED 600. The report* of the officers for th« *.ear were some of the most pleasing bits of news ever received in this or any convention. One report showt.l the membership to have increase from 802 to 1,326 d u r i n g the past y«ar, a total of 524 Increase. The treasurer a report showed receipts during the year of $2,001 and an expenditure of on'.y $690 with a few email bills yet unpaid. The constitution was amended to provide that the meetings should · b« held on the second Friday and Saturday of July each year instead of in August. Another amendment also granted to each delegate to the national convention a $2 per diem Instead of "expenses '· VOTES OF THANKS. A vote of t h a n k s was extended to W. D. Brown, editor of the R. F. D. News, for his work in Washington In the Interests of r u r a l carriers; also a vote of thanks to the Y. M. C. A , and to the local carriers and speakers. A telegram was received from the state convention In Mankato, M i n n , and a letter from the M i c h i g a n association. EXPRESSION OF DIFFERENCES. The action of the letter carriers' association In expunging from the r^r. ords the address of B. F. Stayrr.".. s grew out of the expression of d l f f r - ences of opinion by members of the association from the Ideas of the speaker. Mr. Staymates made his address at the Friday afternoon, meeting. Mr. Staymates declared that It was not hard roads that were wanted here, just "good roads," that God had made the Illinois soil porous and quick to drink In the water and dry out a n d t h a t a hard road wasn't needed. Ha said the Tie* road bill planned to maku boulevards out of some of the country highways and that the people shouldn t fool themselves on the state aid proposition, that they were simply taking money out of one pocket and putting It Into another. DID NOT MEET VIEWS. The address did not meat the vlewi of the carriers at all. They are for good roads and for hard roads, and they did not look on the address as being In line with their views. There was a good deal of criticism of It as soon as the meeting adjourned and It was at once decided by several that It would not do to let the address stand as seeming to have even the tacit approval of the carriers. Olney Gets 1915 Convention By a unanimous vote Olney w.-n chosen as the 1915 meeting place of t!'« Rural Letter Carriers of Illinois. Thpra were five towns in the race for next year's meeting. The towns and their* votes are as follows: Olney, 66; Princeton. 61, Belleville. 29, Jacksonville, 10 and Chicago «. The rule l that the town getting the convention must have a majority of votes ca?t. Olney did not have the malority but Belleville withdrew In favor of Olney and it was voted to let Olney have th« convention. ILLINOIS IN NEED OF COOKS Springfield, July 11.--The high cost of living isn't the only problem which confronts Illinois state officials in their effort! to keep down the cost of maintenance of state charitable institutions. There Is another complaint There la a dearth of cooks. Officers of_ the state civil service commission yesterday declared that the eligible Hst for chief cook Is completely exhausted, and that the llsti for ordinary cooks are depleted.

New York, July 11.--Commercialized use ot Christian Science teaching was held by the appellate division of the supreme court Friday to be Illegal. The conviction in a lower court of Willis Vernon Cole for practicing medicine without a license when he accepted, Jtes for Christian Science treatment waa sustained. The higher court, in its opinion, answered in the negative Its premise: "la the commercialized use of prayer for the avowed purpose of treating all persons seeking cure for all kinds of bodily Ills the practice of the religious tenets of a church?" PRACTICE IS PROFITABLE. Cole, formerly a sculptor and a poet, testified at the trial that his practice brought him an annual income of 16,000; that he had never studied medicine and that he never solicited fees, but accepted those offered him. Clifford P. Smith, of the committee on publication o£ the Christian Science church. Issued a statement later declaring that the practice of Christian Science differed from the practife of medicine and that It cfluld not "be made the same-by law." THE DISSENTING OPINION'. It was announced In all probaliyity the case will be appealed. The appeal probably will be based upon a dissent- Ing opinion rendered by Justice Tlowl- Ing saying that If Cole Indulged simply in silent prayer with his patients there ·was aothlBc unlawful in th« act, a», by doing so. Cole might honestly i*- lieve "he was assisting the cure of the alleged maladies," by placing his patients "in the proper spiritual attitude" toward their Maker.
