In other towns general "Clean-up,,
days are being announced, on which day
all the citizens, business men-in fact
everybody in town is requested to help
clean the rubbish and waste from the
streets, alleys, and vacant lots. Does
anybody think it would hurt Arcadia
to have a"Clean-up" day?
Mosquitoes breed in old tin cans
which are allowed to lie around and
become partly filled with water. Flies
breed in rotting trash and refuse if
such is allowed to accumulate on va
cant lots, back yards, etc. If a day
were set apart on which everybody in
town were requested to gather up all
the tin cans and rubbish on their prem
ises and place it in a pile where the
city scavenger could collect and haul
it away, and then everybody assist in
cleaning up the vacant lots the same
way, it would no duobt save many
doctor's bills later on. It would help
the looks of our town, too. Don't
you think so, dear reader?

the majority will consider it favorably.

LIGHT PLANT IS PURCHASED
BY TOWN OF ARCADIA
A deal which has been pending be.
tween the Town of Arcadia and the
Stewart Light & Power Co., was coii
sumated today whereby the light plant
becomes the property of the Town. The
consideration was $5,000.00.
It has been the plan of the Mayor
and Town Council to install a lighting
system in connection with the water
works plant, on the belief that the two
could be operated in connection at prac
tically the cost of operating either
plant alone. The original plan was
to install two engines for the power
plant, and to add to this the ma
chinery necessary for a light plant.
The purchase of the light plant, makes
it possillch to install a waterworks and.
lighting system at practically the cost
of the waterworks system alone under
the original plan.
Among the improvements to be made
in the light plant will be the installa
tion of two new dynamos which will
insure better service.
Mr. H, A. Ments, of Magnolia, Miss.,
was here yesterday and today as con
sulting engineer for the Town of Ar
cad.ia, assisting the Mayor and Town
Council In preparing the specillcations.
