Most property owners think this a bluff, but confidentially The Herald tells them it is not. Better get to work.
Wednesday evening after returning from town, Mrs. W. F. Dodd, in attempting to light a fire, using coal oil to obtain a quicker result (a habit which a large number of both men and women have), the oil quickly ignited and blew out of the top, completely depriving her of her eyebrows and scorching her hair. She suffered little pain, but it was a narrow escape. There is always danger lurking in the use of quick combustibles in lighting fires and it is a habit which people should quit. Warning against this habit is the object of this item.
At its meeting last night the town council authorized the mayor to have the cemetery fenced all round with a new fence which include the new part of the grounds. The addition will be laid off into streets and lanes, and lots will be sold to parties wishing them. The funds will be used to pay for the fencing and other improvements after which they will be used toward keeping the cemetery in good shape. This is an excellent move and Mayor McCoy is deserving of praise for his liberality by furnishing free the necessary posts. All successful cemeteries that we have ever known worked on the plan of charging a fixed price for lots; thereby a revenue sufficient for the needs is derived and the family lots undisturbed. Let us at least have a neat city of the dead.
