KEEPING NEW YORK CLEAN.

Every morning, from March tc
October or November, the pavement
ol Fifth avenue, New York, h
scrubbed until it shines as clean a
a kitchen floor. Broadway, too, it
the up-town district, is washed a
thoroughly, says Leslie's Weekly.
Every morning this task is done by
the- metropolitan department ol
street cleaning, no matter what the
weather conditions are, notwith
standing, for instance, a heavy all
night rain. This is because Nen
York wishes to appear fresh and
clean to the largest number of itt

It is this scrubbing every morning
that brings forth from the stranget
