Both ordinances will come up for

which Bryan & Co. propose to take

council, net the city $95,000, and the

Ing a total sum of $142,000 the city
would receive for $150,000 worth of

is contended by advocates of the sales
that the city cannot reasonably ex

which are now or may be later faced
by the financial world. There are
those, too, who quite as vigorously
oppose the sales upon the terms nam

with which the board of public works

Spitzer & Co., of Toledo. O.. fell
through), commenced negotiations
for the sale of part of the bonds and

F.X.CEtlS COARD OF
RIDUC Km OST
GIVE $1 0,000 DONDS
Mayor Henry T. Titus, during the
meeting of the "city council, Monday
night, arose and demanded that each
member of the board of public works
be required to comply with the muni
cipal law which provides that they
shall guarantee the faithful perform
ance of their duty by giving indem
nity bonds to the city they serve.
A resolution, offered by Council
man Mills and seconded by Council
man Conrad, requesting each member
of the board of public works to give
bond in the sum of $10,000 was unani
mously adopted. E. M. Condit, secre
tary of the board of public works, in
speaking for that body stated that na
member of it objected to giving bond
but did not think It necessary or re
quired by the municipal law.
An ordinance passed and approved
March 30. 1909. specifically states
that the members of the board of pub
lic works shall give bonds "for the
faithful performance of their duty,"
and the proper disbursement of all
moneys which "may come into their
hands by virtue of their offices." This
ordinance has not been repealed, but
no member of the board of public
works has been under bond in sev

DR. G. A. KLOCK GAVE SPLENDID
ADDRESS AT CHRISTIAN CHURCH
The services at the First Christian
church were largely attended on Sun
day evening, at which time Dr. Klock
gave a splendid address on "Keeping
One's Health." Among the special
things mentioned were food, sleep,
work and habit. He showed that most
people who are "worked to death,"
are people who spend too much of
their time in' pleasures not wisely di
rected, and by keeping late hours,
thus making them unfit for real work.
He admonished all to form regular
habits as regards food, sleep and
At the conclusion of Dr. Klock's ad
dress, the minister, S. L. Jackson, took
the divisions of the doctor's address
and applied them to keeping one s
health spiritually. At the close of
the minister's talk, the invitation was
given and one young lady went for
ward to confess her faith in Christ.
The address by Dr. Klock is the first
in the summer series to be given on
the second Sunday evening in each
month. Some business or profes-
ional man will occupy the pulpit
discussing themes of vital interest
to the people of the community.
