sinki tig into the mud where a sewer
had liedn dug and filled in on the

Foi tme last three days men have
been nr work digging the sower from
the main in the roadway to the house
so tlial; connection could be made.
The pipe had been connected and the
dirt put back, when the rain started
in, tho laborers quit work and last
nlglilj the place was pretty soft. No
light had been placed to show that
tho s ewer was in bad condition and
the \ foman walked into it.
John Oleson, a carpenter, who lives
on B richton avenue, was going home
aud hearing the cries for help ran tc
the lady’s assistance. Two other
men, who were passing, also gave a
hand and the woman was helped out.

To the ladies of the Good Government,
I wish to lay this complaint before
your honorablo board, hoping it will
receive attention and quick action for
the benefit of the public and especial
ly lor the heartbroken mothers, whose
grief is hard to bear for the loss of
their dear ones through some person’s
fault in neglecting his or their duty.
The Place I wish your committee to
visit is Methfllnic street between De
Kalb and Buckingham avenues. I
hope your female delicacies will not,
be shocked when you will see the hot
bed for hatching germs of all deadly
diseases which are too numerous to
mention. The water which fills the
holes on the east side is so heavily
loaded with pollution, it turns into a
state of fermentation and rises in
The above is without exaggeration
which yonr committee will see. Now
you want to know something that
yon won’t see. You won’t see the
manhole which is covered with about
two feet of dirt. It is natural to
think that iron will rust and decay
which in a course of a short time a
horse will go through and perhaps put
the city in litigation.
I reported this in the city chamber,
not when the president was in the
chair, but after adjournment in a
verbal manner. So you can see that

Tnis is the third time I made appli

Tho trimming |s a large white bird
with a red comlAund whose plumage
[hangs over the back of tho hair.!
These conventional birds can bo had

The second hat is a white felt,
slightly turning tip all around and
bound with black velvet. Its sole
trimming is a band of velvet around
the crown and a flat bow on tho left
side. It has a great deal of style.
The turban is made of graceful folds
of beaver cloth and faced with velvet
of the same color. The rosettes on
either side are made of bias velvet
gathered in around a cut jet button.
