THE SALINE OBSERVER VOLUME 48 SALINE, WASHTENAW COUNTY, MICH., THUESDAY, SEPT. 19, 1929 NUMBER 48 Safe from Fire Valuable papers, Bonds, Securities and similarly important documents—if kept in the home—are in constant danger of destruction by fire. For Fate, in dealing out flames, makes no choice. Better to put such valuables beyond the reach of destructive elements. Somewhere where you have "peace of mind" that they are safe from possible loss or damage and where you can get them when you need them. That "somewhere" is in a— SAFETY DEPOSIT BOX —in this reliable Bank.

The price of land in the different localities has been one of the causes for delay on the part of the committee The amount of land required is 1,200 acres, and we are told the option covers one of the side tracks of the Ann Arbor railroad at Urania.

MARTIN fUOSS Phone 86 and Saline's fire department made a speedy run, but were able only to save adjoining property, the granary and garage. A tractor and the few tools in the barn'were saved, the hay crop oeing consumed as was a large stack of straw. The cause of the fire is still a mystery, the theory of spontaneous combustion being almost beyond reason as much of the hay had been mowed away ever since June and early July. The separator was owned by the neighbors, who had it for their own use, and it had been put in the barn for the winter. The property carried fair insurance, but far below the loss. «■ REV. JOSEPH FORT NEWTON To Speak at Masonic Rally in Ann Arbor Monday Evening, Rev. Newton is rector of St. Paul's Memorial church, Overbrook, Philadelphia, and is widely known throughout this country and England through his lectures, magazine articles, sermons and Moronic publications. He served four years as minister of the City Temple, London, England, and six years as minister of the Church of Divine Paternity, New York. Rev. Newton served as Grand Chaplain of the Grand Lodge of Masons of Iowa and is the author of a number of ever experienced, This is -the situation' in "The Cameraman," Keaton's new Metro-Gold- wyn-Mayer comedy which comes to the Liberty theatre for Saturday and Sunday. It is a hilarious succession of trials, tribulations and troubles, with a love romance with pretty Mar- celine Day on the side and a spectacular Chinatown tong war with machine gun embellishments for a huge thrill. "The Cameraman" was directed by Edward Sedgwick, and shows Keaton as an aspiring newsreel man chasing the elusive "Story" in New York. He gets mixed up in a parade and almost arrested, he tries to film a boat race and gets all mixed up with a churning propellor, he's almost droyned, dragged over the streets— then, goes to Chinatown, finds himself in a tong war, hides In a pipe to dodge the bullets and is used for. a human battering ram by a Chinese attacking army. Outside of that it's quite uneventful for Buster—as uneventful as sitting on a can of dynamite ahd pounding it with a hammer. Much of the picture was taken in New York, including the scenes at the city hall, Yankee stadium, and in Mayor Jimmy Walker's office. A sensational boat race was staged at New port for the picture. A complete Chinatown street with 500 oriental actors marked the big battle scene in the picture, and sever The Young family reunion was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Austin Robison on Sunday, September 8, with 54 in attendance.
