A CAE, LOAD
OF SNOW BALLS
Wouldn't last long these days and it wouldn't
be very hard wark to get men to unload them.
It isn't hard work, either, to get the thoughtful
housewives to unload the bargains that are
stacked up on the counter of SHIELDS CASH
GROCERY. These bargains in groceries are as
Welcome in Many Homes as the
Flowers in May.
Not because those who take advantage of them
need to be economical, but because they, as
every well meaning person should, des' re to get
full value for money expended. A word to the
wise is sufficient.

FUND FDR FIRE ALARMi
Council Appropriates $1,100 With
Which to Start the New
BOXES TOB BUSINESS DISTBIOT
Should be Purchased at Once
Aldermen Wrangle Over
The feature of last evening's ad
jiurned meeting of the city fathers
f jr the consideration of the annual
appropriation ordinance was the
earnest, though only partially suc
cessful, efforts of Ad. Andrews,
backed by a majority of the ooun-
fi . . - .
cunien, 10 apportion me mnus so
as to provide a tepirate fund for
the purchase of a modern tiro alarm
system for the c'.ty.
Dilliculties met AM. Andrews and
his follower in the prosecution of
their oject at every turn. The
city clerk, bat apparently shaved
the estimates down wherever possi
ble, and bad barely succeeded in mak
ing the receipts and expense bilince.
The chairmen of the committees in
charge of the different deptrtmeuts
took a stand against defections from
their respective fuuds, and tho mayor
and city clerk came down Uitfoo ed
upon tne uggestiun that an overdraft
would solve the question.
Wrangle Dr Library Hoard Kcpoit.
The firrt wraogle occurred over the
report of the library board asking th
1'Vving of the ycaily tax amounting
to f 10,000 for tbe new library. After
this was finally granted the council
wont into committee of the whole for
the consideration of the appropriation
ordinance and Aid. Anderson was
called to the chair.
Tbe clerk's estimate, as found else
where in the otlicial proceedings of
the meeting, was read and tin septr-
te items of expense discussed, there
was a loner artruuint over the $3,000
slimate f.r the street and sidewalk
fund, which was settled by g.viuir
$600 to the First. Stcoud. Third and
Seventh wards and $500 to each of
tho olhcrs lor sidewalk purposes.
rho street fund wm rai-ed to
2 337 68 to enable the city to ny for
aviug tho intersections on twenty
urst street xae minor. i uuu wus
nt from the f6 000 estimate for
waterworks construction and the
reservoir expense icm- was cut from
7,000 to fd 000. Five hundred dol
lars was added to tbe f I 000 bridge
estimate, and 2,400 taken from the
contingent fund of 3 500 for the im
provement on Twenty-second street
VI, lOO for tb AUtm,
When it was over, then was bat
1, 100 left in the contingent fund, and
over b00 of that, according to City
iters benauer. baa already been
spent. However, Aid. Andrews of.
ft red a motion that was carried, set
ting apart f 1.100 for the tire alarm
ice council ha adopted the (iimt-
well lire alarm, and tbero is a resolu
tion on the record instructing the
mayor and cUrk to enter into con
tract for the installation of tho new
system whenever the municipality
sball loci unancially able to assume
tho obligation. That a modern and
independent fire alarm system is
needed, all will admit. Suppose the
city cannot buy the outht complete
right away, it surely is not in such
poor circumstances that a starter
cannot bo made for a system. Buy
enough boxes to protect the business
district, maintaining tho old system
n the residence portion, and add to
the new apparatus yearaficr year un
it it is complete, .taxpayers have a
ight to expect at least this much of
the pre-en t council.
