The first thing that strangers note in
coming into a town is the condition of
the streets. If they are straight, clean.
ind have good walks the stranger is
favorably impressed. If the yards that
line the streets are neat and well kept.

of the people and the town helps him

the town have their work to do in order
ing the streets kept neat and clean, and
the sidewalks kept in repair. The citi
zens have their part to do in keeping
their door-yards clean. Every person
has a work to do in making the town
respectable, and they should not fail in
their duty. This is the way to attract
strangers to our midst, and make citi
zens of them. We wonder if all our
citizens think of this fact?
Look Out for the Rascals.
Last Tuesday evening two festive
scamps of the swindler order arrived iu
town by the midnight train. On Wed
nesday they hired a rig of John Lutes
and started out in search of a victim.
Thev learned David Flagler wished to
sell his farm and called at his place to
see him. But not being at home they
told Mrs. Flagler that they would be
back next day and departed. That
night festive scamp No. 3 arrived In
town and Thursday jnormng all three
started out. but before arriving at Flag
ler's No. 3 was left bv the wav. the
other two going on. Flagler was at
home and was pleased to see the gen
tlemen who offered him a good round
price for his farm, lie showed them
around, invited them to stay to dinner
which thev did. and after dinner they
all sauntered over the farm talking
over the deal and perfecting their ar
rangements. The buyers would be
back next day and pay for the larm.
At this juncture No. 3 arrived and told
the party a strange story of how lie had
taken up with a stranger and how the
strange had lleeced him. but he Baid he
had secured lus cards and knew now
that no one could get the start of him,
with that he produced his three card
inonte deck and went to work and the
men who had bought the farm became
wonderfully Interested and got to bet
ting until one of them had won
The player shifted his cards again and
the other bet 315 he could name the
right card, after making the bet he was
sure of winning and would bet an even
8100 if Mr. Flagler would lend him 83
which he did and the better lost. Then
they separated the loser promising to
nay Flagler when he paid for the farm.
It is hardly necessary to add that the
trio then skipped for Canada. Mr.
Lutes when he heard of what had been
f:oing on, began to feel uneasy about
ds team, but the same night was tele
phoned from St. Clair that his team was
there with M to pay for their use.
