The congregation was not quite so large as usual. Mayor Hubbard, and councilmen Hol- lowell, Teal, Grier, Hopkins and Titus were present. Brown had taken a freak notion to split up some wood for hiß wife and cut his foot and Sampson said that he was tired, (must have got his hair cut) was the excuses for their absence. The application of C. W. Mat thews and Chas. Mix for saloon licenses was brought up and were granted changing the license from $1000 to $1500 per year. The question of approving Stev en’s contract for grading and rocking certain streets was brought up again. The question was discussed at some length, objections being made that the ordinance was not complied with when the contractor was allowed to put river gravel on instead of No. 3 crushed rock as the ordi nance called for. The curb on Third street was also reported to be in a crumbling condition and required props to keep iUn place. Vote was taken which resulted in thrfce for accepting and two against. It was urged that if the matter went into court that this division would work against the city in forcing ihe property owners to pay the assessment and Grier changed his vote and voted against the acceptance and the motion was declared lost. A motion was then made to accept all the work except the curb on Third street which carried, the vote standing four for and one against. A committee waited on the council asking that the council in struct the city marshal to wink at the law prohibiting minors from frequenting pool halls. This was, rather an unusual and open way of handling such propositions and the council were up in the air, so to speak. Mayor Hubbard told the committee that this was a state law and that the council had no authority to act in the matter even were they so dispos ed. Councilman Hollowell told the council that he had something to spring on them. He said that there was an unopened street near the school house that the children had to use, that was a disgrace to a civilized community. That it was dangerous to pass over. A motion was then made to begin condemnation proceed ings against all the property along this street in order that the city could have it improved. The council then adjourned, “ peace and good will prevailing.” Mr. and Mrs. D. F. Courter re turned last week from their farm near M o n m o u t h where they have been spending the past two months.

BRING YOUR JOB PRINTING THE NEWS OFFICE Exit the penny-in-the-slot gum vending machine. The war tax has driven them out of business. Hereafter, under provisions of the war-tax, all gum must be sold from the open box and the box must not be destroyed until after the last piece has been sold. As the nature of the machines requires that the gum be entered into them without the box, further use of machines would constitute a violation of the Federal law. So owners of the vending mach ines explain. And some machine- owners are much discouraged about i t Even the smallest mach ine costs $10. They will be use less and unproductive of profits so long as the tax law remains in effect Glass cases used for gum also must go unless the original package of gum is placed therein. The law requires a stamp of 4 cents on every $1 box of chewing gum.
