There is no better indication of thrift
and prosperity than to see the side
walks In front of a business house kept
clear from snow and ice. Or in other
words, to see the twelve foot sidewalk
covered deep with snow with only a
narrow beaten trail in front of a busi
ness house, office or shop leaves the
impression to the passerby that the
place Is deserted or that the occupants
are neglegent. This rule may apply in
some degree to residence property.
Although it would take the owner or
tenant from five to ten minutes every
day during the snowy season to keep
his part of the sidewalk clean, it would
impress pedestrians that lie had a re-
