a Hope is the worlds need3 larg
er purer and betterfounded hope
To stimulate an interest In hand
some yards The Sun hits offered a
series of seven prizes for pretty
a yards UO cash forthe prettiest
yard In each of the six wards of the
city and a special lllrJze of 15 for
1 the prettiest card in the city nt large
To allow the people who live Just
beyond the city limits to enter the
c contests those residence living with
in a half mile of the city limits will
be eligible to the contest
The Sun will appoint a committee
to make the awards and they will be
made about July 15 This will give
every one ample time to enter the
contest ad get their yards readyand
will not nut the date so late that the
lawns and flowers will have been
burned up by our hot summer suns
Xow that the town cow has been
Z denied the privilege of running at
large at pleasure anywhere a gen

l Dont wait for the building of
more streets to have your sidewalks
Improved Bad streets are unsightly
I of course but poor sidewalks are an
abomination more annoying to the
general public than are the streets
Get permission to rebuild your side

afterwards the street work can be
attended to This will not only In
sure the new streets but will spread
out the costs to t you and the city
Try the Idea and see how satisfacto

amount they cheated the government
J out of Greene and Gaynor get off
with a very light sentence Of course
they will take their punishment and
1 be glad to do so and after their
served will also take the oath of In
t solvency and escape the fine assessed
against them Ability to use discreet
ly the money they defrauded the gov
Fritment out of was a credit to the
ability of these
