TO IMPROVE
VJews of Members of the

SHOULD LEVY SPECIAL TAX
What Messrs. Patram and Abbott Have
toSay on tho Subject?Could Mako
lt Ono of the Most Beautiful
of Citles.
Fermanent -"nprovements to tha streets'
of Manchester is tho lmportant toplc of
the hour, and thore ls not u singlo dls
santer in tho whole clty to tho ootion of
the Flnance Commltteo In ,making the
large approprlatlon of "7,000 for streot lm?
provements,
Whlle tho Strcot Commltteo has not yet
mapped /out the work for tho yoar, tho
general understandlng ls that a systomatlo
scheme for permanent Improvementa wlll
be flxed upon, and thnt macadam wlll bo
argely usoa in tho flxlng of roadbeds. It
has boen gonerally nccepU-d by the pub?
llc tliat Sommes Street. one of tho most
frequontly used streets In tho clty wlll
receive much benellt from the approprla?
tlon. Tho vlews of two of the prlncipal
advocates ot -.ermanent lmprovements ara
hero given, one from Chalrman Patram,
of the Street Commltteo. and tho othor
from Mr. J. T. Abbott, who has for years
advocated a systomatlo permanent im?
provement. Mr. Patrum says:
"I wlll say that havlng served a term
of elght years In tho City Council of our
clty and not belng on the Street Commlt?
tee In that tlme, that when I was elect?
ed as a member of tho Board of Alder
mc-n whon that body was organlzod, of
course I was pleased to bc made onalr
man o' th? Stroet Commltteo.
PERMANENT IMPROVEMENT
"As I had always taken a great lnterest
ln the city of Manchester. and especlally
her streets, I anvmost heartlly In favor of
permanent lmprovemonts. both on i.ie
cross streets as well as tho prlnCipiU
streots, and as the City Council and
R. L. PATRAM,
Chalrman of the Street Commlttee.
Board of Aldermcn have seon nt to make
a much larger approprlatlon than ever
before for street work, I cortainly hopi
and expeet to mnicc marked Improvement
In tho streets of our city durlng this year.
W'hlle being heartlly ln favor of perma?
nent Improvement, l cannot see how we
can altogether stop temporary improve
ment as there are lots of places in our
city that need lmmedlato attentlon.
There are several streets ln Manches?
ter lhat I thlnk ought to bo paved wlth
brick, and havo stone curblng. nnd l
would also llke to soe that wherever wis
put down slone curbing, thnt we could al?
so put a rock or stono gutter to carry
off the water. As for some of tho streets,
I thlnk that gravel' and crushed stone
make a vory good sldewalk.
"Beirg tho oflicial head of the Street
Department of Manchester. I will say
that 1 shall do all that I can to Improve
the streets of Manchester. and to make
the Improvement as permanent as pnssl
ble, at the samo tlme to rellove tho great?
est number of our cltlzens, ns they use
the streets the most. Not havlng boen on
the Streot Commlttee before, I dld nol
know much about the dutles of tho place
but havlng the lnterest of the ciy at
heart, 1 went at tho work wlth n deter
mination to do the bost that I could and
I l.ope before Ihe yenr shall have explred
the citizens will havo belter streets to
walk and drlve on nnd show to vlsltors
moro than they have over had or expected
to have."
MR. ABBOTT'S "VIEWS.
Mr. Aiabou';- lemara'a are along tho
same line, although, posslbly a llttlo moro
olaborate. llo says:
" 'Let us havo good streets,' should be
the slogan and goiden rule of every munl?
cipal governmont. Certalnly, It ls truo
that a clty is judged more by its streets
than any othor one thing; nnd Manches
terians aro comlng to reallze thls fact.
Wlthin the pa-it t'ew years tho questlon
of permnnent street improvoments has
sorely puzzlcd the city fathera. and It can
bo truthfully sald that thls questlon has
taken lirst rank among lmportant topies
of munlcipal economy. Many cltlzens
would llko to sco the pollce force Inereas
ed, a groat number would llko to have a
now clty jall, a multitude deslre clonr wa?

*< Tlie jnost wonderful part of our being is the blood. It __,
the fountain of life, the vital life-sustaiuing fluid, contaiuini?
everythingneedfttl for the growtli and development of the body
and as it circulates through the system carrics material for the
making of bope and muscle and nourishment for the nerves
and tissues. Every atom of the body is dependent upon the blood for its existcncc. The
boues would decay, muscles shrink and the skin become parched and shrivelcd but for the
nutriment they draw from the blood, and so long as it
remains uncontaminated and pure we arefot'tjfied against
disease, and health is assured. But the blood is constantly
exposed to poisonous elements from a thousand sources;
we come in contact with, infectious diseases almost every
day; we breathe into our lungs the germs of Malaria;
the water we drink is teeming with millions of microbes,
the dust of the streets is filled with. bacteria, aud when
these gain acce^s to the blood are distributed to all parts
of the system and the blood becomes a carrier of disease
instead of health. Deadly poisons are generated within
the body itself, which pollute and vitiate the blood, from
which serious and often fatal maladies result.
There is scarcely a disease that cannot be traced to
a bad condition of the blood. Rheumatisin, Scrofula,
Catarrh, Eczeraa, _etter, Acne, Contagious Blood Poison
and many otlier equally as distressing aifments are due
to a dep -aved condition of the blood, for which there is.no
.ure except through tlie purification of the entire blood
system. Sores and skin eruptions of the most frightful
character, ugly splotches upon the skin, blackheads,
pimples and the red disfiguringbumps so often seen upon the face and neck are also evidencea
of diseased blood. The use of cosmetics, face bleaches, soaps and lotions hide tlie blemishes
and conceal for a time tlie roughness and redness of the skin, but do not reach the cause,
which is hiddeu deep down in the blood and beyond the reach of extenial treatment.
The blood is the maiu spring of health, the life current that strengthens and refreshes
the hody, and upon its purity depends your health and happiness. If disease has already
entered and you are suffering from some malady for which au impure blood is responsiblc,
a blood purifier aud tonic is what you need, and none is so good as S. S. S., which for nearly
fifty years has been recognized as the standard remedy in all blood and skin diseases. It is
guaranteed purely vegetable and can be taken by old
and young without fear of any harmful after-effects.
S. S. S. is a perfect blood medicine; it destroys and
eradicates germs and poisons of every description and
restores to the weak and innutritious blood its lost
properties, makes it rich and strong agaiu, and under
the yitalizing effects of good blood the system rallies,
and the patient enjoys again the blessings of perfect health. ,
If. you have Rheumatism, Scrofula, a Sore or Ulcer, Catarrh, Eczcma, Telter, Acne,
Contagious Blood Poisou, or blood trouble of any kind, write us and our pli3*.sicians will advisc
