In her petition she claims that the city was negligent in that it had allowed the soapstone slab sidewalk in front of the Earl Griffith home on North Thorington street to become out of repair until there was a depression where two slabs came together with one being one and one-half inches lower than the other. She claims in her petition that the depression was filled with water and slush at the .time' of her accident and was not visible when she stepped into it and fell,', breaking- two bones in her left-leg above the ankle and tearing the ligaments in the same ankle and leg.

So let us again stress the necessity of a .good clean border, Where hemp was not drilled i'i you are likely to find tall, thick, straggly stalks of hemp around in the border of the fields. These coarse, stalks should be cut and burned with other refuse cleaned from the border while the other crops and weeds are still green, so as to eliminate fire damage. Fire being the worst enemy to the hemp industry the greatest care in prevention of fires will be taken in all steps of handling and processing' the hemp. Matches carried in the pocket or in any other way by employes will be will be against mill rules. Disregard for rules governing fire prevention will result in dismissal. One hemp area in Illinois that was 'inspected by Leo Hartman supervisor, had not received rain for jifty-three Bays and a good even' average hemp crop has resulted. With this information as to the amount of moisture needed to raise good hemp it easy to understand one reason why we have some short and uneven hemp in this area—too much rain.
