ion as to what is best to do with tin
tewiine derived fiom the tents of the

some misconception as to ceitaiu pur-1
poses for which it might lie Used. We
think that as much of this fund as
necessary should be used to keep tin
building in tepalr and a reserve held
for an emergency, and the balance
used forimpioving and boautiying the
grounds, but In times when the general
fund is exhausted we can see no pos
sible wrong in borrowing from the
rent fund to meet necessar, and ur
gent expenses. Hut we do not think
it would be right to appl. these rent
funds toward paying the 'city hall
bonds or the interest on same, as these
are pro ided for b, oidinance adopt
ed by the vote of the people, and if
the taxes aie piopetly assessed and
collected it will not onl, pay the city
hall indebtedness, but add inntipj to
the general fund. Now is a time when
the town needs money for general pur
poses, and we can see no good judge
ment in depleting the general fund to
build up tlit lent fund, unless this tout
fund can be Used for the general
good of the public, unless then? is
something about the matter we do not
know or undei stand.

In any large store there accumulates a number of articles that prove to be slow
sellers. The value is still there, but probably they have not been well displayed, or
maybe now they are just a little out of season, or mabe it is a certain brand of some
