Second Mill Fire
in Fourteen Days
On August the thirteenth a
mill at Springwater was totally
destroyed by fire and in less than
a fortnight later, one at Viola
w»»nt up in flames. It was own­
ed by Will Kaake formerly of the
Horner-Millard mill at that place.
The fire started at 2:30 a. m. on
Tuesday the twenty-seventh.
How it originated remains un­
solved and there was no insur­
ance carried.
The mill and 30,000 feetof lum­
ber were entirely consumed thus
being a complete loss.
The Spirit Of *61
The parade of G. A. R. vet­
erans last week in Portland,
mart have been an inspiring
sight. But a tinge of sadness
would color the thoughts of the
contemplative observer, as he no­
ticed the unmistakable signs of
increasing age and infirmity, in
even the spryest of those boys, in
Then the thousand , or more,
who were carried in autos, be­
cause they were too crippled up
to march with their comrades,
made it evident that each suc­
ceeding year will show a great
depletion < in their ranks, until in
a comparatively brief period the
G. A. R. of '61 will have passed
over into the beyond. But this
thought . would add both dignity
and; inspiration to the occasion,
as the martial ardor was vigorous
at» ever although the.l>ody had
waxed frail.
The spirit of ’61 is,immortal
and shall continue even though
the material forms in which it
was embodied lie mouldering, ¿n
the ground. As long .as t,his
country of ours endures apd
maintains inviolate the traditions
upon which it was founded, the
spirit of ’61 will go marching on.
For the spirit of the boys of '61
was the spirit shown by their
fathers of ’76, by their sons in '98
and is now being manifested on
the battlefields of France, by
their grandsons of 1918.

Gladly Given Committee
for the Assembly
The Chaatauqua beginning this
week should have the support of
every citizen, not only from civic
pride as it is a new venture for
our town, but from patriotic
motives as well.
President Wilson, especially re
quested that tfip Chautauqua
activities should not be abandoned
on account of the war, as such
assemblies can do much to stim­
ulate the people to rally all their
forces and energies in carrying
on the war to a successful issue.
Accordingly the program which
is given below, is patriotic in
scope and purpose, its keynote
being “ Wake Up! America." To
carry out the patriotic idea fur-
i ther, the committee in charge
will donate all the net proceeds
to the Red Cross.
lThe sale of season ticketR will
stop on Friday afternoon, so they
better be secured at once.
