INSPECTION (Continued irom page 1) that the people generally realize the importance just now of Beeing that their flues at their homes are in first' class condition. Within a few weeks at the longest it will be' necessary to start the stoves for the winter and it will then be too late to make any re- pairs which are necessary. There ar hundreds of flues In Elwood which are really dangerous and if not attended to now, they are almost certain to cause a conflagration in time. A lit tle time and money spent now m.iv save your home from destruction la ter on. It will take but a few minutes to inspect your flue and this is some thing that should be done at once and then if repairs are needed, these should not be neglected longer. Mr. Barber says that conditions generally are fifty per cent better than' thoy were two years ago, but there is still a great deal of room for improvement.
