Residents in the vicinity of Augua

Thlrty-fif'h and Thirty-eigbtb streets,
are fo-.f-nd with mud to a dep'h of
from or.- tr. six lncheg. This sticky
clay is off the wheels of the wagons
vhich are hauling dirt from the Thirty

However, no effort is made to either
provtnt or remedy the condition as it
low exists. The teams keep on piling

fed there is general dissatisfaction
along the streets in the vicinity. It
would be perfectly proper for the city
c mmission to take a hand in the mat-

etal need and demand for more paving,
it seems f oily to let an Improvement
Company render useless some of that
which Is already down.
