merous matters of importance pertaining
to that portion tJ the cltv were brought
up and discussed, the condition in which
certain localities are left by the recent
overflow receiving considerable conaidea

square is to be used more as a thorough
fare than even Spencer Square is.
The matter of ornamen's is already re
ceiving attention, and as the fountain is
the first and most essential of these, the
promoters of the improvement are wait

reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
