COUNCIL WILLING TO LISTEN.
Council aeema determined to "go
' alow and learn to paddle," as the old
"saying has tt- Last year-there waa
more or less clamoring on the part
of the people for " more action on the
part of Council, and that body seems
to have listened to the clamor on the
grounds of Justification that the peo
ple ought to hare what they want, es-
pectally ' when they must pay for 1L
But later, when the people saw that
they had been In too much of a hurry,
and that because of that hurry they
had not been given just what they
wanted, or It had not come to them
Just as they wished it to, then the
cry went up, "why did you give us
what we asked for when you knew
we ought not to have It?"
This year Council has determined
' to go slow and be certain that what
they are getting Is what they want,
and not something that will satisfy
the people for the present minute.
Could certain of the improvements of
last year be done over hey would now
be done differently; Council doesn't
want that condition to exist In the
matter of what is done this year. And
Council la certainly acting wisely in
At the meeting of Council Wednes
day evening there were several pro
perty holders present that had a little
to say concerning Improvements, but
In the future It might be wise for
property holders who are Interested
In certain matters sure to come up to
be on hand and tell Council what will
be acceptable In case that body Is not
. Itself certain. But those who.' go to
talk should have the matter settled In
their own minds so they may say In
a few words what they have to say
and not take up the time of Council
with a lot of useless talk.

"UE greatest problem before the American citj totlaj is to be

' , The recent disclosures in Adams county, O., a typical rural com
munity, where more than a thousand persons have been indicted, for

J For centuries there has existed a popular fallacy that everything
that is wicked Is to be found in the cities, while all the virtues are to
be found in the country; that city people are bad and country people
correspondingly good.' And because of this belief the cities have been
