I Elbert Hubbard, one of the most pro

i all odds one of the most popular plat

J the Agricultural College on October 2.
He will give his famous "heart to heart
talk" on the "March of the Centuries."
Elbert Hubbard has been castigated
in public print as few other men, and in
his monthly Philistine he carries to his
readers all the vilest things said about
him. . . But it is also true that few men
have been permitted to read more kind
ly things said of themselves than have
been said of Hubbard, j The Fra says
what he thinks and apologizes to no
one; his aim in life, according to the
Philistine, is to make others think and
he does it.

M. M. Long has cement walks about
his new home at the corner of Fourth
and "A" streets and is now making i
a lawn. : He has an attractive bunga
low there, different in style from most
in the city," and with a green lawn there
will have a fine property. Frank Scott,
the mail man, has built a new house
just now and will put down cement
tne spring. That corner will loom up
in great shape next summer.
It s a crying shame that the cement
walk on Fourth street between Adams
and Washington, should not - show I to
the credit of the city. vThat walk cost
good hard cash, and yeiv it looks like
the effort of amateurs in a town no
larger than Summit. In the first place.
the owner of the property at the cor
ner of Fourth and Washington streets-
built a good walk and he built a wide
one the city ordinances .at that time
having prescribed a wide one or, per
chance, made no provision at all. 1Ke
ordinances now declare for a six-foot
walk, and such a walk has been . laid
north "of the corner man's property.
As a result there is a jog of one
foot between the two walks. But that
is not the worst of it there. The work
men who laid the new walk must have
eyes so crossed that the tears run down
their backs when they cry. The outer
edges of that walk have bows in them
that make the average pedestrian sea
sick as he passes. -, The Gazette-Times
has insisted .that some competent per
son should be appointed to look after
walk construction, or that the city
should contract the walk in districts
and build it for the property owners.
The council proposes to take some
action but it , could not take it tooi
quick. More than a little walk put
down recently is far from the best that
can be laid,- and this had not been paid
for. It should not be. ; "
