years of age. A disconsolate husband
and tour little children survive. The

The Bum Condition of Marshall Avenue
and Other Streets.
Editor Intelligencer: The bum con
dition of the majority of the streets of
this city?"The Electric City" and the
city that we have heretofore been
boasting of being so beautiful?is be
coming unbearably bum. The coun
try road is far better.
But we started to tell of Marshall
Avenue, one of the most popular Bhort
residence streets in the city. The
writer has been living on this street
neatly two years. Last summer the
weeds were cut down and nothing
further done until after Christmas,
when the scrape took a turn of about
thirty minutes up and down the street.
About the first of July the weeds were
again chopped down and about a half
dozen loads of dirt dumped on the up
per end of the street?and then tbe
slow, poky - street gang moved to an
other Btreet. We have walked np and
down this street for the last year?I
should have said ditch?with water up
to the ankle, weeds being four and five
feet high on the edge of the walk, and
we would be forced to take the center
of the walk?which is the ditch. Wo
could not take to the street for mud
would swallow us.
We have been to the Alderman from
our Ward and each time got promises
?but promises will not remedy the
bnm condition of the street. We have
always been a strong supporter of this
good Alderman and we can see no rea
son why he should treat us as though
we were a step-child. But, wo sup
pose election time will roll around
again and we intend to support a man
who will work our streets.
Do not understand us as kicking on
any street superintendent. The gen
tleman who was in oharge of the gang
on our street seemed to want to fix Our
street in good shspe, bnt he did not
have enough hands and teams and was
compelled to skip about, ehop weeds
and do the best he could. A good sire
pipe was removed from across the side
walk in front of our gate and the hole
was never refilled. If we fall in that
ditch And get injured we intend to sue
the city of Anderson for damages.
If our memory serves uj right, the
couneil agreed on* spending so much
money for street paving this year, and
it was supposed that the regular street
forc? would conti rfue to keep the streets
in repair. But thia has not been done
?the streets have been allowed to go
on their way rejoicing.
We woold not grumble but we pay
good taxes and want good streets in
return. And then when we accidently
get hauled up in front of the Mayor at
one of his 10 o'clock matinees he never
fails to crack us for a good pile of
1 money. We do not mind paying for
our failings and misfortunes, out we
like to see justice dished out in fair
doses. We would like to see a good
many changes in the city government
and believe it we live a few. months
longer we will see it. And that $5
fOr the Alderman who shows up at the
council meetings! We believe they
deserve it, but should not have voted
it to themselves.
