Caves and settling of dirt in a
lateral sewer on Adams between
Eighth and Ninth streets present
conditions of danger. To the north
of the beaten track along which ve

has left a trench of unknown depth,

A similar condition isjpresented to
the south of the track, and woe may

Both openings are underwater, and
the depth can only be surmised.
Benton is again out of debt

The moon has lost all it9 old
time prestige as a weather maker
as a result of the past eight weeks
of steady downpoun At stated
times throughout the period old
inhabitants after consulting cales
dars, predicted that the coming
change ot moon would usher in
better weather. , But every pre
diction tailed to the intense morti
fication of the prophets and to ' the
great and lasting detriment of the
moon as a weather gauge. The
17th was a date to which all the
moon-prophets looked calmly for
ward as sure to bring a change lor
the better; but the 17th was a day
of howling blast and alternating
rain and snow, and so have 'been
all the days that followed it. Ac
cordingly, the moon is in bad odor
now, but by and by all the old
believers will forget the past and as
ot yore, again watch the moon and
