Depression in Industrial Condition Causes Hesitancy. The old adage, "there's many a slip 'twixt cup and lip," runs true to form. Just ten ' days ifje, residents of iv wal.ie street, north of Klrst and oi North Almieok street appeared hefore the council with petitions which hud heen freely tdxiied. asking that cement walks he constructed along these streets and ugrccinK to pay for the. sam, within a period of ninety ilavs. Two days later, the street committee of the village placed the stamp or ap proval on the plan and the ohl beatd walk elnng the east side of North Ah meek street was torn up, preparatory to eetehlsThlng the made and beglBllllH active work on the ( einent walks, when all residents of the section af fected sinned the agreement to reim- buree the village for the hnprovevnenl within ninety days. Now there is u hitch in the pro, leading. During the last fw daya, reeldnnlt who erere eager for the eralha ten days ago have approached council niem hers asking that the improvement lie iefOiredi and statiiiK as their reason that the indrstrial deiression due to the European war will make it ditlieult for them to pay for tin Improvement if made this year, other residents are still earnest in linn doelre for the im provement, feeling that there BUOUM be no delay now that the machinery has heen set in motion. The council naturally is at sea, ami doee not know whether the improvement Is really wanted or not. it is a pi, ttv cafe i re- diction however, the walks win not he built unless a majority of the resi dents reach an agreement to pay for the same within sixty ilavs. PLAYGROUND IS POPULAR. Discontinuance of Present Lease Would Cause Much Regret. The announcement last evening that the Laurium council contemplated abandoning the Laurium playground site, situated at the corner of First it,. i Efecle Btreetc. when the present lease expires the last of this month. CAUBed much interest among residents f the village. There is little ouestioli that this plan, If carried out, will meet with serious objection. . Playground workers, who all along have sought the co-operation and friendly spirit of the council, do not believe any action will be taken by that body to Impede the progTB 1 of the Dlaysround movement here. The popularity of the playurounil has bOOfl amply demonstrated, ami there can be little Queotion that its Influence bee been a helpful one among the chll Iron. Although the village ha red the orig inal expense of preparing the play round, the expeitee incurred since that time has been very small, and is not to he compared with the bene- nts derived. The playground workers would very much Mm to see the village continue the present arrangement, in fact feel it is due them that the lease be re newed for another year at least, so that if the BTounda must eventually be abandoned, the association may make some other arrangement for its equip ment, which is about as complete as the equipment to be found in am otty playground. FOR BRIDE TO BE. Mrs. Edward La mere entertained at a linen shower at h r home Thursd U i evening in honor of Miss Tillte Qldkey I of Wlolverine, who shortly win he mar tied to Raymond Ruedelmaira of De troit. A large number of Miss Qldley'g f m inis were present ami the gathering I proved a very pleasant one. .1. a. It lei and family have left for Detroit, where they expect to locate. LAURIUM A. B.
