wa« several minutes after the department
arrived before the professional fire
fighters succeeded in opening the hy

The fire started from an over-turned
lamp in the hands of Mrs. Helliwell,
and the entire structure was a mass of
flames before the members of the family
had time to save any of their effects,

Tite Captain of the Sunnyside Station
says that both end-gate valves of the
hydrant were broken, and it was also
ascertained that county sprinklers had
been using the hydrant a few days pre

was tlie cause of it being out of com
mission. The matter has been r«-|>orted
to the proper authorities.
A lielegation of Lents citixens waited
on the county court Tueeday and asked
the court’s assistance in improving the
Lents Playground, which was recently
acquired from the county court. The
court decided that they would fence the
gravel pit and surface and roll the
ground that is necessary for the con
struction of a ball ground for the use of
the I hijts of the towu.
Among those in the delegation were:
Rev. W. Boyd Moore, Dr. C. E. More
