Louis LaFlex, our bicycle repair man met with what might have been a very serious accident one day last week. Early in the day he threw a small amount of gasoline in the stove when there was no fire in it and later in the day he went to start a fire and when he applied a match to the kindling the gasoline that he had thrown in the stove in the morning ignited and flashed into his face burning off his beard in a frightful manner.

It is with regret that the public learns that Rev. L. C. Voss has tendered his resignation as pastor of the Presbyterian church in Greenwood and on Twenty-six road, to take effect when his year expires this coming June.

About twenty members have been added to the membership and the work materially strengthened. The field is too hard, however, for the pastor to cover, the strain being too great for his health to warrant him to continue. He has no plans as yet as to what he will do, except to take a needed rest in some quiet place.

Fire was in the air again Sunday and the department was called out to do valiant work on the residence of C. H. Clute. Fortunately it was not necessary to turn on water from the hydrants although everything was ready for such service. The fire was caused by a burning chimney which had started in the morning, but Mr. Clute had fought it all the forenoon and supposed he had it under control when about two o’clock smoke began pouring from the roof and attic. The firemen were soon on the scene and found that the woodwork, which was built tight to the chimney for a distance of six feet [cut off}
