WANT GRADE ON NORTH
MAIN STREET LOWERED
?PETITION BEING CIRCULAT
ED AND FREELY SIGNED
TO THAT EFFECT
Property Holders and Others De
sire Grade Lowered From
A petition is being circulated In tht
city and freely signed requesting cltj
council or the pavng conimisslor
(whichever one ls the proper bod)
to bring the matter before) to havi
thc grade on North Main street, be
tween Earle street and the postofflce
lowered considerably more tban ii
I called for in thc plans prepared apro
pos of the paving of this street.
The paving commission sometime
ago decided to lower the hill only or.
thc u:?per, or east, side by bringing ll
down to a level with the curb on tin
west.side of the street. This would
take about 18 inches off the east side
of the street, In front of the residence
of Mrs. Keed and farther up.
The petition which ls being circu
lated now calls tor the lowering of thc
street more thau this. It ls suggestec
that the work of excavating be started
Bomewhe.ro along the front of thc
Evans property, near the intersection
of Federal and North Main streets
lowering the street level some eight
inches below the curb line there. Tht
street from there on down to Earle
street, on both sides, would be lower
ed in proportion to the grade estab
lished In front of tho Evlins proper
When the matter ls brought before
tho proper authorities in the form of s
petition signed by property owners and
other Interested parties it is probable
that they will see the wisdom of the
Improvement and order lt carried out.
It is believed that this will improve
tho general appearance of North Main
street a hmd'rcil fold. North Main
street would he made to appear more
level between thc square and the
slight rise In front of the residence
of Col. Jos. N. -Brown. As North
Main street is to be paved with vitri
fied brick, lt is believed that lt would
be wisest to reduce tbe grade between
Earle and Federal streets to a mini
mum, as brick pavement becomes
somewhat slippery In damp weathei
and when covered with ice or sleet In
winter time is somewhat treacherous.
Beducing the grade would, of course,
render the chances of horses or pedes
trians slipping down on the pavement
in such circumstances to a minimum.
The Man Who Advert?aos.
There are but two classes of mer?
? chanta-those who advertise, and
those who do not. The man who ad?
vertlses has the best of the deal. He
keeps himself before the public-he
keeps his wares before the public
and h keeps their quality and price
uppermost in the public mind. Peo
ple talk about a man who advertises,
because they know he has something
worth advertising-or hu wouldn't
