—The work of remodeling the Dela
ware County State Bank building is be
ing rapidly pushed forward. The base
mont will be the oilice of the Quaker

the noted evangelist. Mrs. S. A. Stead
man and Miss Anna Sias will receive

work when completed will be a great
improvement and add much to the ap
pearance of the building.
—A ride in the country induces one
to believe that weeds and tall grass on
the sides of the highway are an abomi
nation. Farmers were seen cultivating
their lields of corn (two fields were aB
tall as the fence) while just outside the
fence and in the corners inside were
great patches of obnoxious weeds that
nearly hid corn and man from view.
Then too there is the liability of being
overturned in ditches as the unevenneBB
of the highway is entirely obscured.
We thought it was the law to have
theso weeds cut, and presume they will
after the corn is tilled suiliciently.—
—As the soliciting committee of the
rest-room llnd it impossible to secure
funds from the business portion of the
town sullicient to warrant the under
taking, this plan is abandoned. The
fact is to be deplored as the room was
for the convenience and use of farmers'
wives and women and children from
neighboring villages. No doubt as to
patronage exists as abundance of ap
proval and gratitude has been received
not only by those residing in immediate
vicinity but from others in Greeley,
Masonville and other towns. It cer
tainly seems that some plan will yet
materialize which will add this humane
feature to the attractions of the town.
It 1B hoped so.

cal Btorms are also apt to culminate

brief spell. Heavy local rains visit
narrow sections, during these storms,

10th will bring warmer weather with
a tendency to local storms. Rains will

-The home team played the Center
Point base ball team at the ball park
last Saturday afternoon. One would
not ask for a better game than was wit
nessed for the first five innings. Ston
er was in the box fo the locals and his
work was much to his credit, pitching
exceptionally well and with perfect
control at critical stages of the game
The crowd was highly pleased with the
work of the home team the first five
innings but in the sixth and seventh
innings Stoner's arm gave out and the
visitors batted him at will. At one
time a home run was made when the
bases were full. Clemens was substi
tuted for Stoner in the eight inning,
and the ninth was ommitted on ac
count of the latenesB of the hour. The
score at the end of the eighth stood 10
to 1 in favor of the visitors. The
Center Point team is an exceptionally
strong one carrying five salaried men.
The Manchester boys did not expect to
win but are satisfied with the showing
made in the first part of the game and
clearly demonstrated that if a little
more attention were given to practice
they could easily bag some of the games
to be played later. The line up of the

Citizen Registers a Kick.
EDS. DKMOCKAT: am informed
that the city council of Manchester
want a lot of cattle to pasturo on thr
streets of the city. The grass and weeds
have attained such a rank growth on
all the streets and alleys that, if utilized
for pasture, they could replenish the
treasury, which is so near depleted, as
reported in last week's paper.
A town is judged by its appearance
as strangers enter it, and a splendid
growth of weeds line both sides of the
walk from the railroad grounds tho
length of the Iirst block, and ladies
coining along the walk have to rub the
dirt and dew olT on their clothes unless
thoy walk single file. I would suggest
that a subscription be raised to have
the obnoxious weeds cut, and it will re
du^s the seeding of the farming country
adjacent to our city.
1 am a little surprised at our farmer
lonncilmen permitting a growth of
weeds that they would not permit to
