A PUBLIC BATH NEEDED. '
Citizen Think There Should he Place
Provided.
Editor Barre Times: A city as large as
Barre is ought to have a public bath house.
1 asked a barber here why there is no
place a man could get a bath. He said it
did not pay to keep a place. I told him
that that was strange as I knew of many
smaller cities than Barre with bathrooms.
He replied that people in Barre had their
own bath rooms. This may be so in many
cases, nevertheless I am perfectly con
vinced that there are also hundreds of
houses here who have no such places. The
river here is too dirty and the water is too
cold to take a bath in.
I hope yon will nse your Influence to get
such a place In the city.
