Newly Installed Water
System and Neighbors
Help Save Farm Home
PEDEE, October 15. The com-
pletion of a fine water system
the day before, was the principal
means of saving the farm home
and all- out buildings of Rev.
Womer, from destruction by fire
Slashing on logged off lands of
neighbors was being burned,
when a brisk wind came up and
carried burning pieces of bark
and live eoals over the hill and
down on the buildings of Mr.
Womer. - The house caught on
fire several times, the barn was
afire four distinct times, the silo
caught on fire, a large strawstack
near the barn was on fire several
times, besides the innumerable
small grass fires.
Mrs. Womer and Jhe children
were alone when the red monster
first threatened them, but neigh-
dit is due him for his persever
ance even in the face of great ob
stacles. Mr. Way is driving a new car.
Thirty pupils are now traveling

bors rushed to the rescue and it
was only by the hardest kind of
work, vigilance, and an abundance
of water that the buildings and
contents were saved.
Every man in the Van den
Bosch mill was there as well as
neighbors, and men from Pedee.
Men patrolled the roof of the
kbarn, of the house, and all out
buildings; men were in the hay
mow with water and wet sacks;
men were on the straw stack
quickly extinguishing fires as
soon as the burning embers fell,
while others put out grass tires.
All this was possible only
through the adequate supply of
water held in the large reservoir,
600 feet above the farm home, on
the mountain side.
