Fourth of July at Delmar

DELMAR, Del. May 23. - At a Joint meeting of the town councils of the Delaware and Maryland sides of Delmar, it was decided to ask the people to arrange a Fourth of July celebration. The proceeds of the celebration will be used to purchase a hose cart for the 700 feet of new hose received this week by the fire department. In the event that the receipts from the celebration exceed what Is needed for the purpose of purchasing the hose cart, the remainder will be turned over to the department for the purchase of such accessories as It may need.
