ficient dedication ot tho land for street
pin poses by the owner; after such dedi
cation tho public uuthotltlcs may ncccpt
whenever they ste lit.
Such acceptance Is, in the case of tho
city, nccompllshid by passing an 01 dl
nance 01, pci haps, icsolutlon, expressly
stating the streets named and their ac

plied accept nice arises In cases where the
public authotltles have done acts iccog
nMng the existence ot the highway and
tt eating It as one of the public highways.
This may be by appropriating money for
uny making 1 epulis upon It, by locating

An implied acceptance clso frequently
niises fiom long continued uses of tho

Among the liundieds of special val
ues of this odd ware sale are some
bargains that outclass others, both in
their desirability and the sweeping
character of tlie reduction.
Particularly is this true of our open

ware, 'which hae been made up in
sets. It has been a matter of doubt
whether they should be included in
the sale or not, but once decided upon
