Meeting of The City Dads.
The second session of the new city council was held Monday night and considerable business was transacted. The improvment of the public park was taken up and discussed. The street commissioner was ordered to see that the side walks of the town be kept in repair and if the property owners fail to do it the work will be done by the city and charged to their property. It is a disgrace to allow some of the walks to be as they are. Sometime some one will have an ac cident on account of the bad condition of the walks and the city will have a big suit on hand. Property owners > should have enough pride in their town to keep the walks in repair but in case they will not the city should. This action will meet with the approv al of all, we are sure. I)r. Rains and the committe on health were ordered to see that some of the filthy places be cleaned up at once as a starter.
