Then there's another point every bit as im portant. It is this Put what isn't spent where it will not only be safe, but where it will earn something. It's YOUR business to see that less is spent than is earned. It is ours to see that the surplus is well look ed after. WILL OPEN BILLIARD HALL. A. J I.

No business of special Important' came before the regular meetinu: of th Laurium village council last eveninii The count II approved the usual batch of bills ami disposed of its routine business. Action was deferred upon the ap plications of whlows and others In ex treme need, to have their taxes re mitted, there being an unusually lar?e number of such applications. In other years the council Is called upon to re mit the taxes for about six or seven applicants, but this year there are a round dozen to he .acted upon. The warrant on the tax roll expires on Oct. IS, but it Is not expected that the county treasurer will call for its return until long after that date. The council decided that John Hunt, ttreet rommlssioner of the Ivlllage, should be paid for services rendered during the firemen's tournament In tho capacity of a nlnht watchman. The agitation which was mentioned j in these columns last week, w hich alms to secure a shorter connection between I.aurluiji and the county highway both on tno north and south, reached the council last evening. The members looked with favor upon the project and named a committee consisting r.f . II. ivian. Malcolm Mcleod and M. K. O'llrlen, who will wait upon the official. of the C. If. Mining com pany ntui endeavor to devise a plan whereby the connect Ing links may b. established. It Is suggested that r short road between Church street i aiiimet. an.l Amygdaloid or Ahme-k streets on the north and between Co luriuna or I'nion street. Kaymbanl- town and Tamarack or IT em streets oil the south U'Olll.l nrm'.i -,.f.. 1,...-. flelal to th- town. It was suggested that the village Purchase a meter tester, at n cost of about loo. It develops that some of the meters which have been In stalled by the village do not operate properly, and it l;i claimed that n me ter fester would protect the village ,js well as the water consumers. I'p (n the present time 125 meters have been Installed, and In many cases the sand blocks the meter and prevents It from giving correct returns. i no council decided to pay f2'0 of tne money now in the special assess ..I in,.., u,.mi inf. nojo which was entered Into f,r this fund. The bal ance will be retained to meet the in terest upon the note when It falls due. The special assessment note now amounts to about f.l.Onn. The presl- uent nn,l clerk wire authorized M make a small loan for the general run.ls in case such a loan I needed. The report of Contractor John T .mci .oiiaiu, wn.i has laid the cement sidewalks In the village was received by the council last evening. The re port shows that during the month of epiemner. ;i..,L".)0.!l7 SfU.arr feet Of walks were laid, the record for this month being almost as large a.a the t j my, wnen 37.fiO2.04 sfjuaro reet were bu.lt. This makes the totil for the summer 113.221. 51 square feet, which n't 4 cents per foot, amounts to $7.6-12.43. Of this amount $2,024.82 Is due. which together with the fifteen per cent of the total cost of the work, which has been retained by the coun cil until a final settlement Is made, leaves the balance, $3,171.17. The street commissioner's report shows that during the month $l.r.64.3S were spent for public improvement, the pon.1 water Improvement being tha most Important item In this account.
