"The child was rushed to Emergency Hospital, Washington, where she died last Thursday night. The little victim was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Bowman, who formerly resided in Washington.

"Firemen Called Out To Chimney fires

"The local fire company was called out to two chimney fires during the past week.

"Last Saturday night a chimney at the residence of John M. Collier, cashier of the Patapsco National Bank, caught on fire, but was promptly extinguished by the local firemen.

"Monday night the Company responded to a call near Sykesville, when a chimney caught on fire at the residence of Oscar Streaker.

"Farm To Be Sold At Public Auction:

"On Monday, December 1, the Blackshere Farm, one of the most desirable pieces of property located outside of Ellicott City, will be sold at public auction.

"The farm is better known as the Elkridge Farm No. 2, and is owned by J. Booker Clark. The property consists of 320 acres of fine farm land and has a frontage on the Baltimore and Frederick State Road, now called St. Johns Avenue.

"This farm has been subdivided into tracts of from 4 to 100 acres, making it possible to purchase a small farm of any size. Every tract has a good road frontage and is well watered.

"The main farm is one of the best equipped dairy farms in the State. It will have about 100 acres, with a stone house, 12 rooms and bath, with all improvements. Another tract contains about 50 acres and is improved by a frame house.

"Special Radio Plans for Golden Rule Day: Stations Throughout America Will Broadcast Sunday Programs for Near East Relief

"In connection with the state-wide celebration of International Golden Rule Sunday on December 7, which is being arranged through state and county committees of the Near East Relief, it is announced that special radio programs are being arranged for that day by all the broadcasting stations in the United States. Practically every regular Sunday program will be devoted to the observance of this day with appropriate music and sermons."

Of course, 17 years later, December 7th would be that day to "live in infamy" known as Pearl Harbor Day for future years, marking the beginning of World War II for America. And the Near East, along with most of the world would, sadly, become players in that war.
