Until tho recent snowfall came to cov er up tho evidences of slothfulness, llnrrea chief street showed undoubted signs of care IcHKiiess on the part of the people at regards the dispoaul of scraps of paper and other waste material. On Sunday morning, for instance, tho Main street pavement had on each side a bor der of litter that extended as far us the mercantile limits on that busy thorough faro. There were accumulations of va rious sorts at tho edges of the sidewalks wineii gava anything but an indication ot a dignified little city, careful of its ap pearances and desiring to make a good impression on the visitor as well as upon l lie resident.

A sou was born Saturday, Dec. 12, at Newport, R. 1., to Mr. and Mrs. William M. Carson of Kalamazoo, Mich. Mr. ('ar son is the son of Mr. and Mrs. T. C. Car son of this city. Miss Rernice Morse of Bakerafield was visitor in the city recently while on ter way to Williumstown, where she will pass the holidays with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. N. Mors(. Mrs. W. M. Harvey anil two daughters, who have been visiting in this city and Williamstown for the past two months, left Rarre to-day for Montgomery, Ala., where they intend to pass the winter. If any of the members of our 1014 Christmas club have not received their cheek we would ask that you notify us at once. We would also urge you to join for next year lief ore Dec. 2.1 Harre Sav ings Rank &. Trust Co. Beginning Friday night all mercantile establishments affiliated with the clerks' association will remain open until tt o'clock, with the exception of Saturday night, when the HI o'clock hour will le observed. These hours will be observed until Christmas. Acting on the petition of people living in that vicinity as well as manufacturers whose granite plants are located in the south end. the ahlermariie lire committee has caused to Is' installed on Hoynton street, not fsr from Hurt-lay Bros.' sheds, a new fire alarm box. The number 411 will be sounded when the box is turned for an alarm. Among the manufacturers nearby are Han-lay Bros., Robin Bros., P. Corskie & Son, E. A. Bugls-e , Co. and the Carswell-Wet more Co. The fact is that the people of the com munity have become extremely thought less in this regard! they have gone back ward far from their former position when they took prido in having thp streets clean and attractive. They have, uncere moniously dumped newspapers, handbills, package wrappers and other scrap mate rials over the edge of the sidewalk into the roadway as the best way to get rid of the excess matter, trusting perhaps i that the street department would trail after them and pick up the refuse or that the wind would come along in a sportive mood and snatch up the papers and transport them to some less conspicuous place. Coming opportunely, the snow did the job. The refuse lies concealed for the time-being. The evidences of the sloth- fulness of the people are soaked down along with the dust that remained after the efforts of tho street department to sprinkle the accumulation in the hours when the touch of winter would not freeze the water to the granite blocks. L'ntil the snow vanishes we shall not be ! forced to look upon the eyesores at least, not till the carelessness of the peo ple causes another accumulation to gath er on top of the snow. For which let us give thanks. Possibly some measure of the disgrace ful conditions was due to the lack of proer receptacles in which to dump the rubbish and for that reason the people were not so much tot blame; but even that being the case they might have ex ercised a little forethought and carried the waste material until such time as they could find a proper receptacle. It would not have been a great exertion, nor even a strain on the brain. An agitation in favor of a set of lights over the four dials on the town clock in the I'niversalist church tower, has caused the alderinanie property committee to consider w ays and means for 'supplying the demand for better lighting facilities in the neighborhood of the clock. The matter was first brought to the atten ion of the committee by memliers of the toard of Trade, who suggested that the public clock would be better appreciated if people could tell the time o' night as well as the time of day. A complete renovation of the clock, w hich has im-lud ed rciminting and gilding, is now nearly completed and it is thought that lights will be placed on the four faces of the big timepiece la-fore the staging are talc en down. Tlie onsolidated Lighting Co has offered to furnish electricity for the light without owt to the city. Why not do it, too? There is chance for the exercise of carefulness during the winter as well as during the summer. Particularly is there a chance during the coming few weeks when mercantile bus iness will be at a rush and there will be an abnormally large amount of wasie material. Therefore, try to co-operate with the. street department and the civic organizations that Bre endeavoring to make Harre a tidy little city. Hotic! Regular meeting of Harre pal, hers' branch, O. C. I.
