The remarks made by Councilman P.ailey last Monday night show a con dition of a Hairs in Plymouth that t lit greater number of our citiens would hardly believe unless eidenee were given to prove it correct. There can be no doubt that Alderman Uailcy Knew what he was talking about when he said there wt-re property owners in our city who refused to clean the snow off of their sidewalks because they be lieved the ordinance was not legally passed. Mich a condition of affairs is truly deplorable and detrimental to the future prospects of Plymouth. If a man can be so hide-bound as to sutler Iiis sidewalk to be covered with snow and ice, to the inconvenience of the public, and his only excuse be that the ordinance was an illegal one, there is little hope of the city making any marked progress through his efforts. We are constrained to think that I here is some misunderstanding regard ing this matter.and our reason for mak ing this statement is, we have seen the sidewalks of some of our citizens who claim to be deeply interested in the future of our city, and claim to be law-abiding citizens, go uncleaned dur ing the past winter's snows; and be it also known that some of those who were thus neglectful claim to have in lluence in the molding of public opinion. Hail l'iit Tout. A number of the ladies connected with the W. K. C. of our city, took a trip to Argos Friday in relation to busi ness pertaining to the Women's Kelief Corps. It is said that an excellent time was anticipated by the visitors,and the alluring pleasures of a brass band and banners waving were part of the looked lor reception at the depot. Their chagrin can be imagined when they arrived at this suburban town of Plymouth, to learn that t hey had not been expected until evening, and no committee awaited their coming. The call for this large inllux of Plymouth ladies is for the purpose of forming a Women's Kelief Corps at Argos. We are authentically informed that the conductor of the train on which they went to their destination became uneasy, belitving they contempla ted taking charge of the train. One of the incidents uf note that occurred during this delightful journey, was a question propounded by one of our handsome W. K. C. ladies. It was: KMUAKKASSMENTS OF DIXOKIE. A uruiii; to Kickers. St. Peter sits at the heavenly gates, his hand on the strings of the lyre and sings a low song as he patiently waits for the souls of those who expire. He hears m the distance a chorus of song swell Irom the foot of the heavenly throne, and he smiles as the music is watted along and he warbles a lay of Iiis own: "There, is room in this re gion for millions of souls, who by sor row and woe are bereft, 'tis for those who have suffered the melody rolls, but the kickers must turn to the left. There is room for the people who, when they were young, persisted in sowing wild oats, yet boomed up their town with sinew and tongue but tho kickers must go with the goats. There is room lor the people who pointed with pride to the beauty and growth of their town, who kept singing its pnises aloud till they died, but the kickers will please amble down. They'd say the music was all out ot tune, ana the angeiu; ing around saloons, card tables and on! gown "hand me down," and they'd send the streets.

After congratulations the merry group which consisted only of the family and a few relatives, partook of an elegant and enjoyable wedding supper, and a very pleasant evening was enjoyed. Mr. Harris has prepared for his bride a magnificent home, and they will, no doubt, enjoy the pleasures of married life quietly and happily.

The Kepublicau goes a long way out of the road this week to comment on an article that appeared 111 Thk Indi: i'iADüM of the l."th regarding the burniii of the l'irst Presbyterian church at Michigan City. He says, after quoting the article: inasmuch as there is no wood shed in the rear of the First Presbyterian church to burn, and the church is in perfect condition, having experienced no more than enough tire to keep its congregation warm, we are at a loss to interpret the information in the fore -goinur." There are a great many things in this world that the editor of the Kepublicau cannot interpret, and his inability to grasp a subject of considerable density is not to be wondered at. when a head line, "A Fire at Michigan City," over the article commented on failed to im press itself upon his befuddled brain. It is truly a sorry sight for a man with such promising future greatness to at tempt to belittle a small error like the above would have been even if the ac cident had occurred. Oltitti.irv.
