Built a theatre in Pleasantville?

The town's a grow.in’ fast of late.
Didn’t ye know.it? Where ye bnen? i
We’re hwildia’ a e’ty hall so great,
We’ve got two banks with money in, ;
Ain’t that a sign we’re goin’ some,
The Board oTTrade's the bind of men I
To keep things gbia’ and make ’em!
So, quit ver everlastin’ ravin’,
You can do it iif you choose ter.

A good bit faster than we used ter,
We’ve got the other towns outclassed,
So, jine the gang, and be a booster.

A resolution was passed permitting
John W. Riisley to dispose of the waste
water from his laundry by connecting j

Cake’s Bay, subject, however, to the
rules of the Board of Health.
A reeess was taken to Monday, April
“CLEAN-UP DAY” PLANNED.
Acting in conjunction with the Board
of Trade amd the Board of Health, and
uprfn authority of Borough Council,
Mayor Adams has issued a proclamation
setting apart Saturday, April 13th, as
“Clean-up Day” in Pleasanfoville,’when it
is hoped the civic pride otf our eitizens
wiB foe so generally aroused as will make
the town present an appearance of neat
ness newer before equaled. Everybody
should foe interested in having a clean
looking and inviting PSeasantville, and
each one ought to vie with the other in
accomplishing this object. Therefore,
The Pleasantville Press urges the people
en masse to observe “Clean-up Day”, in
order that our fair city may not fall
short of her adopted slogan—“Best Town
on the Map.”
PUTS END TO BAD HABIT.
Things never look bright to one with
“the blues.” Ten to one the trouble is •
a sluggish liver, Ailing the system with
bilious poison, that Dr. King's New Life j
Pills would expel. Try them. Let the
joy of better feeling end “the blues.”
Best for stomach, liver and kidneys'.
