says the Portland Telegram. At

people who own or rent filthy
premises been compelled as muc
as they should have been to ''clean

and more systematic efforts to clean
up the streets, and get and keep
them in as good form as possible.
It should be done in the natural
course of events, and as a matter
of course. Not enoush work of
this kind has ever been done here.
Portland, long almost the healthiest
city in the country, is not so much
so lately; and this result is no doubt
due in large measure to the amount
of filthy and decaying rubbish all
over the city. So not only for ap
pearance's sake, but for health's
sake, as a matter of economy, and
comfort, and safety, "clean up."
Nay, even as a matter of morality,
the city, all private as well as
public premises, should be cleaned
up and kept clean. There is some
truth in the saying thaf'cleanliness
is next to godliness." And it ap

purlieus, rear spaces and vacant

garments. . :rr.':".rT.:
A certain society has this .notto:
'Look up! Lift up." To this could
properly be added, "clean up."
And a great deal of this work is to
be done. It should be everybody's
business, but it should be especially
the business of those paid to attend
to the city's affairs.

Mr. Arnold, "are two kangaroos,

At this moment Columbus, the
big lion, yawned sleepily, and
emitted a sound resembling the
filing of a saw. He and his mute,
Nellie Robinson, are four yearsold,
and are certainly magnificent
animals. Mr. Arnold exhibited a.
broom which Columbus had, riven ;
into splinters while at play last
night. At this moment the kanga
roos butted in, and did a few leap
frog stunts. A bystander pointing
to the tapir, pieced out the re

The tiger, although but 15 months

a scratched cheek where the black

It is Mr. Arnold's intention to

will then place them on exhibition.
