TO IMPROVE PUBLIC BttUARE The County Court has iii view the ' Improvement of the street around the Public Square, establishing a uniform grade, patting in a lubatan tial foundation ami mucudamizing and graveling that half of the street next to the Court House. ! This movement of the County Court should he promptly met by II wncrs of property on the Pub lie Square, To do this, a majority of them should at once petition the CltJ Council for an ordinance order ! lug the property holders to improve ! In like manner, under the direction and plans of the city authorities, 'i the street in front of tbelr roopooilvo properties. Pennington has uu excellent system of concrete side-walks, but its streets are anything hut a credit, to the town.
