Bruce Taylor, Elk wood Farm
er, Loses Livestock and
Building by Fire
New Cumberland, Pa.. July 1— j
Shortly after 6 o'clock this morning
a large pigpen at the farm of Bruce
Taylor, near Sixth street. Elkwood,
was totally destroyed, and ten hogs
were burned to death. The pen con
tained eighteen porkers of different
sizes, but several of them were saved.
Others were so badly burned that
they had to be killed.
Mr. Taylor made a fire in the
stove in the pen to heat feed for
the pigs and had gone into the
dwelling house when the fire started.
The flames spread rapidly and the
Citizen Eire Company responded
and saved the small buildings ad
joining as well as the garage of Linn
Nell, which was on fire but was ;
not destroyed.
The fire burned off the wires of |
both the Bell and United Telephone
lines and the service was cut off for
several hours.

Figure Stood in Broad Street,
Philadelphia, During Vic
ton.* Loan Campaign
Lcwlstown. Pa. July 1. One of
the big events of the 4th of July
will be the unveiling of a winged
Statue of Liberty in Victory Park.
The figure of Liberty is 12 feet high,
while the base is 8 feet, and each
of the wings is three feet long. It
was constructed for the city of
Philadelphia during the Victory
loan campaign and was located in
Broad Street near City Hall.
The maker of the statue says it
should last at least 30 years. It
was through the efforts of E. W.
Thomas. Secretary of the Mifflin
county Liberty lx>an Committee,
that the county was able to secure
this work of art. There Was quite
a few requests for it. but Philadel
phia finally decided to give it to
Mifflin county.
On the 4th of July, money will
be raised to pay for the creation
of Victory Park. There will be
horse races, baseball games, and
an airship exhibition and many
other amusements all the money
raised at same to go to pay the ex
penses of making this park.
Work has been going on at the
pari, for several weeks and the park
will be completed inside of a few
weeks more.

warerooms. The latter the hour the
larger the crowd. There were men
buying a few quarts of whisky who
explained in detail to others whom
they did not want to see that the
purchase was "for medicinal pur
"Yes my wife always likes to have
a little in the house in case of sick
ness." was a stock phrase that would
be ringing yet in the ears of the
wholesalers and their clerks because
of repetition, if they had had time
to listen to the remarks of their
purchasers. The last minute rush
possibly was explained by the fact
that many men had the erroneous
idea that if they waited until late
they would not be noticed in the
shops or in the streets carrying their
bundles home.
Carry Quart Bottles
Hundreds of men purchased quart
bottles at the bars and when the
closing came sharp on the hour of
midnight they were carried into the
street wrapped in all kinds of shapes.
The souvenir idea seemed to be epi
demic and barrooms lost many a
glass which the patrons wanted to
preserve as "being the last." The
glasses soon found their way into
the streets where bits were picked
up by automobile tires. There were
large numbers of autobobiles filled
with men and women evidently tour
ing the central part of the city to
see what would happen.
Every hotel and saloon in the city
and county to-day had lifted its
license for July with the excep
tion of the Lochiel and the Hershey
House. The big breweries were
still turning their wheels apparently
preparing to serve their customers
with the 2 \ per cent, brew.
Expect Big Bnsiness
According to statements from sev
eral prominent hotelmen. a good
business is expected on beer alone.
For many months the profit on
whisky has been very small even at
the increased prices. Most of the
hotelmen were glad to get out from
in under the big war taxes without
a loss. The only doubt to-day is
that drinking men will not be drawn
into the barrooms if no intoxicants
may be had along with the beer.
Hotelmen who have claimed that the
saloon is the "poor man's club"
have hopes that men will continue
to patronize because of the feeling
that they have no place else to go.
