Everybody Can Help.
The "Toledlan," a new civic ma ga
ll no of Toledo, O., gives timely advice
to a certain class of citizens who have
little or no civic pride, but complain
against the street-cleaning authori
ties. The article which Is applicable
to Individuals In other cities, Rich
mond Included, Is as follows:
"It Is easy to say that a city Is not
clean and that the street department
is Incompetent, or docs not hire men
'enough, or some other complaint, but
few of our citizens stop to consider
how much dally house-cleaning a city
of 200,000 Inhabitants needs, when
each one of that 200,000 takes no care
himself about his own personal action
toward keeping it clean. How long
could any housekeeper succeed In
keeping a tidy homo If each member
of tho family threw papers, banana
; skins and tin cans and bottles on the
floor wherever he happened to be?
ijurt stop and think a minute. It may
sound exaggerated to compare a whole
city with a single home, but It is not.
There are receptacles provided at
moat of tho downtown corners for
waste papers, etc., and there Is no
more reason In throwing a broken bot
tle on a public street than on your
parlor floor. Give some thought to
your Individual action and our city
will soon look as clean as the home of
a Dutch housewife."

Journeymen Tinners union and presi
dent of tho Richmond Central Trades
council states that if the charges were
proven." union men everywhere, he be
lieved, hoped that proper punishment
would be meted out to the parties con

to hold in reserve their opinions in
the matter. They 6ay that organized
labor does not countenance or uphold
lawlessness and anarchy in an at
tempt to gain any end and all say
that the quicker all lawless characters
are divorced from organized labor, the
more quickly will the value of union

arrest of McXamara and associates.
It is probable that this will be the

Chief Miller of the fire department
complained of this to the police yes

Roy Hardey whizzed by the fire
chief's wagon and struck - Thomas

from the bicycle.
It is said that many accidents have

fires because of the cyclists. There

his wheel from fright, at the approach

how by training the blind for wage
earning and instructing them to care
for themselves and to take part in
the various amusements they can sub
stitute a happy, useful existence for
the idle darkness and melancholy at
one time supposed to be the only lot
of those deprived of sight. Blind
