Hotel Struck by Rock
Monday afternoon at 4:45 a
rock about five feet in diameter
which was being moved by the
steam shovel at a point on the
highway above the Hotel Kelly
slipped from the chains by which
it was being lifted and rolled
down the hillside, hitting the
rear of the hotel, breaking in
the storeroom wall and floor and
practically demolishing the con
tents of the room. Mrs. I). R.
Williams who was resting in her
room in front of the stort room
at first thought the jar an earth
quake. She stated that had not
the course of the rock been
diverted by a pole lying in the
back yard, and a board walk,
from the kitchen door, it would
undoubtedly have broken, down
the kitchen floor and have crush
ed their two sons who were at
the time in the rear of the
basement of the building.
The experience at the hotel
recalls the instance fifteen years
ago when the O- T. road was
being built of a blast opposite
the VV. H. Williams residence
which filled their yard with rock
and demolished much of their

The managers of the local
stores have concluded that they
and their assistants require a
reasonable period of physical
rest and recreaticn and have
placed cards in their windows
specifying that their doors will
be open only eleven or twelve
hours a day for but six days of

of hours of service' which our
