The ash man's woes are many,
He has troubles of his own.
No more is he the ash man,
The REAL ash man, all alone.
For the brother and the sister
And the dad have made him balk.
They are using all their ashes
Just to sprinkle on the walk.
P. S. If you are foolish enough to
slip on ashes you are right likely to
light on a nice, sharp piece of cinder.
But don't slip!
SCHOOL BOARD GOUGES OUT
BIG LUMP OF COIN
The school board managed to
gouge $200,000 from the holder of a
soft Etate street school land lease
yesterday. A decision of the supreme
court denying a new hearing in the
Stumer, Rosenthal and Eckstein case
was the victory.
These three, who hold leases on
two school lots on the State st alley
between Monroe and Madison, said
that the valuation of school property
in 1905, upon which the amount of
their rent depended, was wrong. So
they refused to pay.
The decision brings in about $200,
000 in rents for ten years back be
cause the three have been paying the
school board on the valuation set in
1895, much lower than the later one.
A. R. Shannon, attorney for the.
board, handled the case.
