Milan, Nov. 28. A force of work

canal through the sluice gates to

was seen in regard to the matter,

weak places in the embankment, or
other defects, it would be easy to find

The village of Milan is all stirred
up on account of the waterworks.
Last Friday every property holder re
ceived a postal cam with the assess
ment for public improvements. The
lots on Dickson street average about
no, anu on urant ana Williams and
the outskirts will be about $30. which
will likely be reduced from 20 to 25
per cent and free use of the water
for seven years, with seven years to
pay it in, which will make about the
cheapest water system any town can
get. But it seems there is some
growling and kicking about it. but
the people voted for it last spring and
tney nave got tne best artesian well
around this part of the country, with
an outlay of about 1 2.000. and now
tuey are kicking because they think

it pretty hard for people who own

you suit everybody, we will never
get any improvement. The same is
true oi our sidewalk ordinance,
which likely crowded some of them a
little, but it is a credit to the town
and to the property holders also; but

northwesterly direction. Very few
hogs in the above named section es

farmers, including the Messrs. Parks,
Spickler, Harris, taring more than
$1,000 worth of shoats and heavy

misfortune in this direction. Farm

The bottom of the market has fallen

But, while the disastrous results
of the present epidemic among the
swine oi our immediate neighborhood
is to be greatly deplored, its present
aspect, like every other misfortune,
bas a consoling s'ide. It is that the
corn which would have been fed to
hogs can now be marketed, and per
haps as much, or nearly as much,
and maybe more money, can be real
ized from the sale of this cereal.
