The Mayor anil the town Sergeant have responded nicely to the suggestion contained in this column last week, as to keeping tli<> business section of the town clean, and at a recent interview with a committee of tin- League, gave assurance that the ordinances on this subject would be enforced, We take this opportunity of warn? ing our fellow citizens that the authorities will be after them and lim s will be in order in case there is not ijllick marked improvement in this respect. The League is delighted to learn that the lot at the South east corner of Wood Avenue and Hast Fifth Street, one of the most prominent spots in the town and long an eye.sore, has recently passed from the owner? ship ol a uon resident to that of Mr. A. Kelly Mann, our enter? prising grocer, and we have no doubt he will shortly convert this from its present unsightly and dilapidated condition into a corner of which the town will be proud. The League also hears with satisfaction that there is a movement on foot by the town authorities to condemn as tin sanitary and a menace to the health of the town, the small shacks on the lol at the South wesi corner of Fast Fifth Streot and Shaw nee Avenue near the dummy bridge We - .e most heartily in sympathy with this movement, and sincerely hope that this w ill he acted on with? out delay. The League has had corres? pondence with several of the leading nurseries best adapted to our wants for the purchase of shade irees for Fast Fifth' Street in Plot:', and has decided to order loo Norway maples 8 to |o feet in length from .1. F. Hood and Co., Richmond, Va.J and will prepare at once for setting them out on this street. The regular price on these tre. s is iI '11 each at the nursery, but the Leairiie is getting a special price of 70c, per tree delivered at llig Stone t Sap.

That county has had a taste ami wants more Tho decisive vote is evidence of two tilings. Ono is that a good road pays the public. The other is that the people of Russell have ihe shrewdness to recog? nize a fact when they see it and the nerve and public spirit to back their judgment, It seems the good mads movement is real nt last.
