ing. Many thoughtful und industrious
; citizens (tho occupants of Thornton's
block, for instance appreciating thin
fact, and abhorring sloppy sidowalkr,
wet feet, etc., swept tho dopo-dto of snow
from tho front of their buildings, leav
ing a way over which pedestrians may
pas dry-shod. This example should be
generally followed. If each citizen
would devote ten minutes to tho work of
shoveling tho snow from his own prem

be a bushel of snow on the sidewalks,
