The side walks of our city on several streets are in dangerous condition. We do not know whose business it is to force the repairing, but we must say that if the city is not careful, a law suit will be on their hands for a broken leg or arm caused by a loose plank or hole in the walk. The walks along Dr. Henry's place are almost impassable, which is the condition of the walks in places all along the river front. Weeds from each side nearly meetuu the center, mining the skirts of ladi^i who are compelled to go through them, while the dew is on the ground. We hope the board will look into the matter and seç that onr walks are put in passable condition. .
