  • A new Bethany Children's Home, costing approximately $100,000, will be constructed to replace the building destroyed by fire last Sunday. The new home, fireproof and with all modern conveniences, will be built on the site of the former home at 39th Avenue West.
  • Duluth Street Railway Company attorneys will be in Duluth District Court this morning asking for a recount of the votes in the Oct. 4 special election. In that election, voters rejected a resolution to increase streetcar fares from five cents to six cents.
  • The electrical storm in Duluth earlier this week did considerable damage to telephone cables throughout the city. Northwestern Telephone Company officials said it will take longer than usual to completely restore service because the storm was exceptionally severe and the lightning intense.
  • The Duluth appearance tonight of Rosa Raisa, noted soprano, and famous baritone Giacomo Remini at the Armory has been postponed because Miss Raisa is ill in Chicago. Many tickets have been sold and a record crowd was expected to attend.
