June 14—Mr. and Mrs. Mike Weisbrod Were awakened last week Tuesday morning about-3 o'clock by an-explosion which they first supposed was caused by lightning striking near by. They heard water running in the basement, and on investigation they found that the bottom of the soft water tank had been blown out. The tank was hurled upwards against the floor with such force that it broke two 2x8 joists and pushed up through the floor, splintering and splitting it beyond repair. A radio set and a chair above the tank were ruined. It is believed that the pump failed to shut off and that continuous pressure caused the explosion. A similar explosion took place at Ruthven two weeks ago, only there It was the top Instead of the bottom that blew out. In .that case also the pump was blamed. AVOman's Club Closes Tear— Mrs. E. C.
