They can be cured only, through public acti (.-n That is, through the council, ind it follows that the public should bear the necessary expense. -Of course, everybody-knows that block lines and street lines are tlie same. All lair-minaea citizens will admit, or even insist that block corners should be ac curately and permanently mark ed, with uniform markers made of some durable ' material, and" such as will be recognized read ily by any person of average inr telligence. These are matters of public interest. They should be secured through public action and at public expense. Under the circumstances it can be done in no other way. Yes, I admit that I own a corner lot, that l want it mars- ed and that I am able to pay -.for the marking, but that would do no good without the marking of others, over which l have no control. It would not mark another corner in the block, nor in the city. It would not secure uniformity, regularity and ac curacy in the location of either public or private improvements. Even more to the point is the fact that the public owns and controls the land three-fourths of the way around my block corner. It compels me to help keep it in a passable condition for the use of the public. It may compel me to put . public improvements upon the adjoin ing public land, lor public use and convenience, and it must be done at private expense or the public will sell my corner lot out from under me. , The public may say that I shall put these public improvements (sidewalks) just so many feet or inches inside the line of the public-property. But I am no kicker. I only ask that the public show me the line. Is that too much ? - If the establishing of public lines and corners be left to , pri yate enterprise and . personal greed, how long will it be' before the city has no lines. Has it any now. sure and certain r !'i Has the city secured uniform ity, regularity and accuracy, -in public improvements in the pist? Even a blind man could ansvver that if he were turned looseoa the streets, and if not too dizfey. As to the marking of the corner and line between my lot and . Apy neighbor's lot adjoining, we attend to that at our own pense, ana the next lot ownej will do likewise, but we are dependent upon the public show us the public line. "In , conclusion, my : suggest! is. thatthe block corners b6 1 located and marked as I have i dicated, at public expense. U this had been done a few yea? s ago, before any permanent wallis had been laid, it would have bedn better for the public pride. Jf -1 r y t - 1 . ' j Qonf now J.

The pains in the side around the region of the heart are not necessarily heart troube. We suggest that you start with the stomach and when ever you feel a depression after eatiner or whenever your food seems to nauseate take Kodol. It will not be very long until all these "heart pains" will disap pear. Take Kodol now and until you know you are right again. There isn't any doubt about what it will do and you will find the truth of this statement veri fied after you have used Kodol for a few weeks. It is sold here by w. W. GIBSON. Notice to Dog Owners.
