"Wanted a street sweeper," says the
Clinton Age, and it continues: "A street
sweeper should be procured for the pared
district:). As it is now a half dozen men
and teams are kept constantly employed
with shovels and brooms removing the
dirt, where a sweeper would do the work
more satisfactory and ia much less time.
Just at this time it would be a bard mat
ter for a stranger to determine where
some of our paved streets commence and
where they leave off. Would it not be
economy for the city to buy a sweeper?"
The suggestions are applicable with
equal force to Rock Island.
