About one o'clock Sunday after
noon fire was discovered in the

covered by insurance.
John Louy came near losing a
couple of cords of wood by fire one
day last week. Mr. Louy had burn
ed off the short grass where he
wanted his wood piled and after
wards had thoroughly soaked the
ground with water. The wood was
later delivered and one evening,
more than a week after the grass
had been burned off, smoke was
discovered rolling out of the wood
pile. The fire was put out before
any damage was done. It is thought
that saw dust on the ground had
held the fire all those days. '

"Butter is in a class by itself. It is one of
the most easily digestible of fats and un
doubtedly, when considering the oils and
fats dietetically, is the best source of Vita
min A," saysM. E. Jaffa, Emeritus Profes
sor of Nutrition, University of California.
Butter is indispensable in the diet of
young and old. It contains Vitamin A, the
growth promoting factor, also Vitamin D,
which aids in assimilation of the minerals
in the other foods you eat. Butter builds
bones, cells and tissues.
