TROUBLE OVER the LIGHTS
All the news a!! the time The
Geneaeo CuoreU Contract and City Slay
At a meeting- of tlie city council of
(ieneseo. held Thursday afternoon,
that body oted to cancel the contract
wnn tne i-.iectric Light company,
which contract is for the lighting- of
the streets ami the pumping of water
for t he cit y main-'.
Since the erection of the staiulpipe
and the building- of a' power house
and reservoir the city has not
needed service from the Fleet lie Light
company as respects T ti- water sys
tem. For the List six im nlhs the city
has been pa ing the company at the
rate f - I ..mii a year for pumping and
hits li.'ul no iilnalile service in return.
The lighting of the s!rets has not
been satisfactory for years past and
for this sort of serxicc the city has
paid out approximatf-lv $::.0)! a year.
Steps were taken mhiic months ago to
shut on" the company from further
j.i esentat i' ii of its bills for pumping-.
but the coinjiany nt oiu-c advanced
the claim that its contract could not
be canceled at the ilea-ure of the
This has jmt the city fathers on
their dignity, an 1 they hate now de
cided to cancel the contract, to take

many have cmjdoted lanterns for

while the city has been pa t ing a fan

The tieneseit tias company stands
ready to in-tall a street lighting sys

pany refuses to comply with the
terms of the city the sas company
will no doubt receive the contract for

ter of congratulations to the manu

Remedy as follows: "Sixteen years
ago, when our child was a baby, he
was subject to crouy sju-lls and we
would be very uneasy about him. We
began using- Chamberlain's Cough
Uemedy in and finding it suc h a
reliable remedy for colds and croup,
we have never been without it in the
house since that time. We have five
children and have giten it to all of
them with good results. One good
icamre i i uns remedy is that it is
not disagreeable to take ami our ba
bies really like it. Another i that it
is not dangerous, and there is no risk
from g-iving an overdose. I congratu
late on upon me success ol your
