up to large totals. This year the city
will put in siphons at the tanks in
some parts of town, where they can
raise water from the ditches and
mill race, thus saving a large part of
the water bill. The siphons are so
constructed that for every gallon of
water taken from the city mains an
equal amount is raised from the out
side supply. This will almost cut the
water bill In two.
The winter permits for the riding
of bicycles on the. sidewalks expired
last night, and from now on the city
marshal is instructed to keep a look

made to govern the wheelmen. None
of the walks in the city limits will
now be open for wheels until the wet
weather and bad streets of winter
compel the council to grant the
privilege once more.

presents a more cleanly appearance,
a more tidy and studied arrangement
around her homes and business
houses than any of these points
named.
These things appeal to the
stranger very- much. too. If I were
looking for a location I would always
take a survey of the residence dis
tricts of the town in which I expect
ed to locate as quickly as through
the business portions, for the enter

before the county court. Male is a
resident of Birch creek, and Is C3
years of age. He has been afflicted

unbalance is caused by brooding

financially to provide for their fath
er, it was ordered by the court that

Corner West Blutr and Marie Streets.
The school board met last night,
and canvassed the votes on the bond
issue, the previously published fig
ures being found to be correct.
No definite action was taken In re
gard to advertising the bonds, and
the board will wait until the woi.
can be done by its legal adviser. In
former times, owing to slight techni
calities being violated, people had to
vote the same issue of bonds three
or four times, and no such complica
tion is desirable at this time. As
soon, however, as .'. L. Pierce, who
Is now in California, has returned,
the matter will be taken up and the
ball started rolling for the issuance
and sale of the paper. Until that
time nothing more will be done other
than to allow the architects to draw
up plans, so that as little time will
be lost when once the thing Is start
ed, as need be.
