The city council and the chamber
of commerce should do about uow, if
you will excuse the expression, and
see if it is possible to have any of the
streets along the burned district wid

of the town but of the property own

take organized and concerted effort
to do anything but it is important.

of the sinners to that extent. We
thinik that with this much said, it
can be readily understood why in our
judgment a paper fromn any member
of the association on the subject
would be interesting aid instructive.
We would like to suggest to the
editor of The Record, -ho*ver, that
probably his, as well as other editor
ial utterances, would have much more
helpful influence if they were less
spiteful. A proper criticism can do
no harm, and oftentimes may do a
great deal of good, if made ill polite
and courteous language.
The country paper should have edi
