great storms bring unusually heavy

Arthur Hill, wife and little daugh-

Klnney the guests of the former's par-
ents, Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Illll, and oth-
er relative^ and friends,
■Herniation of their services were
spoken by Clly Commissioner M. T.
Jones, City Commissioner Will J.
Rhea, F. C. Thompson, Walter 11. Wll-
, son, Giles Mi Kinney, and others.
"I consider the service of a fireman
' as importunt as that of the soldier in
the trenches. While the ext nt of the
fireman's service may not bo as wide
as that of the soldier, his service Is
Invaluable and beneficial to every per-
son of the community and that service
must not be considered lightly," said
one in speaking of the Individual Mc-
Commissioner Jones was the llrst
speaker. He declared that the city
government was friendly to the lire
department and stood ever ready to
do whatever thing was necessary for
their comfort or to Increase the ef-
ficiency of the department. Hero he
called attention to some plana which
are being considered by the city com-
mission relative to the uddltlon of a
hook and ludder truck to tho equip-
ment of the department us soon as
ways and means could be found to care
for the expense. Walter B. Wilson,
speaking after Mr. Jones had con-
cluded, ventured the belief that the
people of McKlnnoy would Indorse
whatever action the eity commission
took looking to the Improvement of
iiie department In this way.

Water Supply Problem.
Mr. Jones culled attention to the
wafer supply problem which Is a
serious one for the city a! present.
He said that new sources of supply
must be sought and developed to the
end that McKlnnoy will not suffer in
case of emergency. He also said that
the present water supply deficiency is
tho basis of a charge of two cents on
the one hundred dollars insurance
premium, which could be eliminated
if the city wore to acquire additional
water supply. He commended J. S
McKlnney, city fire marshal, for ef-
ficient work in that capacity, Htatlng
that a saving of $2,700 per year was
made to fire Insurance users through
a credit of three cents on the $100
Insurance premium. "This is a divi-
dend which our capable lire marshal
is paying annuully and it does not cost
the city of McKlnney a cent, for the
