The Burgoyne flouring mill at
Lexington was the scene of a fire
last Thursday afternoon, the blaze
starting from a hot box while the
mill was in operation. For a time
it was feared the entire structure
would be destroyed, but the new
chemical extinguisher recently
installed by the town council,
proved adequate and the blaze

Lively Council Meeting
A real live bunch of citizens
met with the city council Wed
nesday night. They were there
expecting that something was
going to be pulled off, and in this
they were not dissnpointed. Or
dinance No. 109, relating to the
closing of pasttimes at 12 o'clock
midnight, was read, and before
voting upon the measure. Mayor
Mason explained why the drastic
action was taken in protests that
are raised and the responsibilities
of the city council. It was passed
by a vote of 3 to 2.
Every little petty infraction of
the law is carried direct to me,
stated the Mayor, and citizens
hold me responsible. He asked
that the marshal members of the
council help in relieving the dis
satisfaction that prevails.
At the next regular meeting of
the council on Tuesday evening,
March 4th, the council will pass
an ordinance relating to the cur
few law which will embody very
strict rules, among which will
cause the parents tc issue a pass
for her son or daughter to be out
after a certain hour.
It was also ordered that surety
bonds in the sum of $5000 be pur
chased for the city treasurer.
Second street is to be graveled
in the middle of the road, and
the street committee was asked
to ascertain what financial hel'I
could be secured from property
owners along said street.
Yes, it was a good met ting, vet
some dissatisfaction prevailed.
The city fathers were composed
and serene throughout the meet
ing, and what tainted atmosphere
there was, was gently wafted
through the open window.
