This advice EMUIXSB. The complaint was not on tha «core of the flre,-4)Ut of tht smudge which the fir« was making. Soma of the workmen at tha mill undertook to burn a, lot of old, tarred paper to get rid of It. The paper burned with a smudge which would have driven all of the mosquitoes of a Louisiana camp to cover. It was too hot for the Inhabitants ot the neighborhood to take to cover and close their windows and doors and the smoke waa smothering, TELEPHONED POLICE. After coughing and sneezing some time the authorities were appealed to. Mrs. Bobb, whoae house was directly in line with the smudge telephoned the police. Police headquarters said that if it was a fire it was tha business of the fire department. Mrs. Bobb then telephoned Chief Devore who responded with one truck and a squad of six or eight men. When he got to the in verse and her story attracted much attention from the others. Forty-one verses were composed to tell the story. The class has been working for r.bout six monthj on a pledge of $200, made to furnish a room In the new hospital. Several months ago the class had an experience social. They did not raise the entire amount at that time, however, BO they kept on work- Ing. Last Friday another dollar social was held and with the money that came in then they have tha entire amount pledged. Soma ot the verses written by Mrs. Paisley were read at the first social and the rest at the lat ter time. It was a variety of ways that Mrs paisley used to earn her money, whicl amounted to four dollars in all. Among the things done were selling bluing particular fir. was th« business of the. rollca department. UNINTENTIONAL, Mrs. Bobb said she had not Intended to call the fire department but had: been unwillingly shunted off on thlsj department by the police. She thought there ought to ba aome department In, this town with authority to abata a, nuisahc* and since the fire department was there could it not turn a stream of water on that fire. The chief aaid that not being policemen they could not do it, but he ad. vised a warrant aa tha quickest and most effective way of quenching that fire. Tha workmen promised to put out the f i r e themselves and quit burning the paper, which they did and. everybody went home fairly well aatls- fied. People You Know O. W.

The city suffocated, sweltered and u-ent out for a walk Saturday night under the cloud ot heat which settled over Decatur and remained without a- breath ot air to raise it after one of the hot test and most trying days of the season. In offices and stores thermometers sizzled at the 100 mark throughout the early part of the night while clerks drooped behind counters.lined with perspiring shoppers. The streets were a mill race filled with automobiles and rigs of all kinds which became so congested at the up town corners that reserve policemen were called Into a t r a f f i c squad after a hard day's work. TOO HOT. Too hot to so home and with small comfort on down town streets, pedestrians continued to fill the side walks and 1 swamp soft drink parlors until late In the evening, and merchants were willing to overlook the "small town Saturday night stuff" when they- footed up the cash register tapes at closing time. RECORD CROWD. The night was a record breaker ID tho number of pedestrians who filled the streets. A baby push cart crosswise the t r a f f i c caused a back water which extended half a block on Water street about n o'clock and people craned their heads and asked who was hurt. Central park was a crowded refuge. Every bench was filled to capacity and there was little room left on the grass, Hot and fussing 1 children found a new interest In the park fountain and a few thrilling escapes were witnessed when venturesome youngsters leaned too far over the edge to dip their arms In the water. POLICE SUFFERED. Members of the police force probably suffered most In the day's caldron. The force Is so Inadequate in numbers that Its members are forced to work overtime on band concert and Saturday nights In addition to the long: hours on their regular beats. Regulations prohibit the removal of the winter weigh coats' and the men must suffer In silence. The system does not even recognize their overtime work, according to members of the force who say that in case of a half day's lay off tnev ara compelled to pay gome one to -work In their place. eggs prescribed by the physician, sell ing marshmallowa, trimming corns and toe nails, pressing clothes and shaving One verse admits that when she press ed her husbands trouaers she took ou the purse and "tapped the till. Asking the impossible. Toung-stown Telegram. -- Rankin-Uncle Sol Sodbuster baffled a aecond- sight performer at the theater last ovening." Phlye--"How did he do it?" Rankin--"Asked him to describe the contents of his wife's hand ba«r." Visiting Specialist Exceed ingly Optimistic. A. V. Brownback, who Is In St Mary's hospital as the result of the premature explosion of a bomb at th Country club on July 4. Is making satisfactory progress. A St Louis spe ciallst, called In consultation Saturday, said that tha chances of savins his l e f t eye are overwhelming. He declared that Mr. Brownback had received the best kind of treatment an care from the Decatur surgeons and specialists. At best It will be months before Mr Brownback la out of the hospital. Ab folute quiet Is the chief requisite for hie recovery. In a week or two, however, the danger of complications wlli probably be past. A. P.
