When Mr. Ferguson was in of-)

law that sav no one can throw!
rubbish of anv kind in the street i

through town a few days agoand
had cKXasion to p through one
of tlse alleys in one of the best
n eighborhoods in town, and
could hardly get through. Let
join hands and clean
town. Mow the weed
j vacant lots and the city mow the;

come to. If you don't clean up!
the mayor shuld see that some!
steps are taken to have it dime, j
Nothing adds value to prcjerty;
more than to keep it cleaned up. !
We dont know who should ms
that the law is enforced, but we
know that it should be. We re
memiHT when Mr. Ferguson was
mayor of Kich Hill lie saw that
tlie alleys were kept dean, so the
people could travel in them.
They are riot to put old buggies
or wagons in, or to throw old
