SEVERAL CEMENT GUTTERS Improvements Cause Added Valua tion to Lots Besides Beau - tifying Property. A great many improvements in the way of streets, etc., and what are technically named civic improve ments, most of which are almost a direct result of the thorough agita tion of this matter by several soci eties and clubs which this spring took this matter for their object, have been made in Richmond this year. Since this agitation all persons have come to view the matter of civic im provement in a different light, begin ning to see it as a thing that is great ly needed and one that will increase value of property so improved. North Fifteenth street residents were the first to feel this pulse of improve ment and after many warm argu ments, a petition for a cement gutter was brought up and passed by coun cil. South Eleventh street next fol lowed, and south Thirteenth street fell into line. The work is now act ive on these three streets and con tractors with gangs of men are busy laying cement gutters. North Thir teenth was one of the first streets to frame a petition for a gutter but the fight there was a hard and long one and not for several weeks, and after (Continued on eighth page.) CONDITION OF TERRELL Remains About the Same He is in a Stupor All the Time Will Not Be Transferred to State Prison. There is but little change noticed in the condition of Terrell, the Bluffton murderer, who is at Easthaven Hos pital. Since his admission there has been no noticeable improTement or decline in his condition, mental or physical. He sits in a kind of stupor, with no intelligence in his eyes, and says never a word nor utters a sound. His stupor is lasting, and ever since his incarceration, he has not done anything that a person with liveliness would do. His condition will prob ably remain about the same. As to the probability of his being transfer red to Michigan City prison, Medi cal Superintendent Smith states that Terrell is in no condition to be re moved to the hospital; that if, as some think, he is really shamming in order to escape being sent to Mich igan City, he is doing too good a job to risk being transferred. Terrell's case is attracting attention over the State. LP. AT HAehgD.,mor ETAOIN ESTAOI At,Hagerstown Next Sunday. Hon. C. E.

MORE HOMES ARE NEEDED FOR ACCOMODATION OF DELE GATES TO S. S. S. A. FOUR HUNDRED MORE RE -QUIRED. THE APPEAL ONLY BROUGHT A HUNDRED City Should Provide for the Dele gates, its Visitors A New Scheme Offered. Four hundred more homes are needed, mcl needed badly for the accommodations of the delegates and visitors to the State Sunday School Association, which meets June 21-23. An appeal was issued a few days ago for five hundred homes. This number was absolutely necessary but in re sponse only one hundred homes were offered. It will be remembered that at the outset of the canvassing, the canvassers met with rebuffs at a large proportion of the homes and instead of getting the required num ber in a few clays, they have been all this time securing them. Work, and hard work, has been the lot of the convassers and the visible results of this work are about nil. The apepal for five hundred homes passed off easily save with a few right-thinking people, who offered their homes. But four hundred are needed and unless this number is got in time to let the (Continued on Page Five.) Will be Dedicated at New London on Sunday. Kokomo, Ind., June 15.
