Last fall, Alderman Davis informs
UP, the council decided to furnish work
for all able bodied tramps who should
apply for aid and the matter was placed
ith Mr. Davis to attend to. He there
upon had several loads of stone hauled,
und unloaded near the city bastile, and
instructed the marshal and his deputy
to furnish a bed and meais for all
tramps who asked for them, but to re
quire them to break rock for tbe city
two hourB before going to bed, and the
same length of time before giving them
meal. The result has been that since

city, they prefering to go hungry rather

here, und if,our citizens wholly abstain
from feeding them, the Weary. Willie

years Bgo has, under the management
of Mr. Charles Baumgartner, gradually

proud. Its machines for the manu
facture of woven wire fencing, portable
corn cribs, gates aud stretchers, now
occupy the entire basement lioor of the
large Kennedy Buggy Co. building, and
the reputation of the articles manu
factured by it is such, that its unfilled
orders now booked are suQicient to
keep the plant running to its utmost
capacity from this time until the first
of next July. The plant is owned by
M. F. Leroy, Mr. Baumgartner and
George C. Durey, and until the past
week has, as stated, been under the
supervision of Mr. Baumgartner, but is
now In charge of Mr. Durey, owing to
the fact that the Grand Crossing TV*"
Co. of Chicago, offered Mr. Baumg

at least be their home, but we
