WHAT HAVE YOU LOST?
Tour S'tar and News Want Ads follow you wherever
you go; your pets wherever they may wander, and will
find almost anything that is lost. Most Star and News
readers are both honest and considerate of the welfare of
others; they will usually return your lost articles if you
will immediately run a Lost and Found Ad in the Star
and News.
When advertising for a lost pet, remember that they
usually roam several days before taking up with someone,
so be sure to schedule your Lost Ad for at least 3 days.

Water Street Parking
Ban Again Considered
The question of whether parking
on Water street from Princess to
Grace street shall be restricted to one
hour, as requested by all business
houses on that section of the street,
came before the city commissioners
again yesterday and again was post
poned for action.
Postponement until next week
came when a letter from Henry L.
Taylor, who operates a business in
the Murchison buildings, protested
the proposed action. He pointed out
that unrestricted parking areas are
now scarce in the city and also that
It would not be fair to prohibit the
parking of automobiles on the street
for more than one hour and at the
same time to allow freight ears to
stand on the ACL. siding all day
long.
The matter will be debated by both
sides before the commissioners at the
regular meeting next week, it was
indicated.
