P. H. Garland, T. W. Stciger and Frank

which work will begin at once extend
ing the service to these families.
To secure service on this one and
one-third miles the seven parties en
tered into a contract with the company
to pay $1130.00, the actual cost of ex
tending the lines. In order that the
lines and poles may become the pro

the seven subscribers receive their sor

In 'other words each party pays on
an average of 161.50 to secure the
service and this Is gradually refunded
covering a period of two years in the
way of no charges for lights. At the
expiration of two years they will have
monthly bills rendered as to other users
of light and electricity.
- Tho extension of electricity into the

NORTH SMI W01S
(Feeling that North Salem has been
partly overlooked when ' it comes to
civic improvements, the residents of
this section of the city are holding
meetings and preparing to 'bring all
residents together in working for the
general upbuilding of their neighbor
hood. At a meeting held last evening with
Superintendent E. It. Tillinghast pre
siding, it was decided that a general
meeting of all living in the north part
of the city should be held on the eve
ning of Friday October 3, at which
time officers of the organization will
be elected and committees from the
different jiocalitie of. '(North Salem
be appointed. '
The residents of North. Salem feel
that from many standpoints, they have
a section that is far better drained
than others,- that they have a more
productive' soil and that in many re
spects, their part of the city ie more
desirable than other locations. And at
the same. timo, they are aware that
iNorth Salem has not kept up with the
march of modern improvements.
To 'bring out a spirit of civic pride
and to prepare for paving and parking
and other improvements, those inter
ested state that meetings will 'be held
this winter and that with the proper
pride taken in North Salem develop
ment, the appearance of this section
of the city will change materially for
the better with a year's time.

theater goer admires a gritty, se'f re
liant, persistent, bellicose young chap
with a streak of chivalry in his nature
who fights his way to vjctory against'
odds and keeps his modesty in the hour
of triumph. "Bill Henry" is a husky
young salesman who becomes enmeshed
in a love affair with a handsome heir

fight with 'bare fists, along with other
dramatic stunts. Tho screen fans will
