The Board of Assessors state in their
report that they believe the former as

be reduced from ten to twenty per

they did not f:el that it was expedient
to make such reduction, and they have
endeavored by 'the changes they have
made to equalize and affix the true

tion should be destroyed, low places
filled, and alley-ways purified. Wells
should not be less than one hundred
feet from places of disease-producing
germs, so that neither by interstitial
drainage nor through the water-veins
might impurities be communicated to
the drinking water. Do not remove the
de/>ris from the yard to the road-way

be covered with earth, for it is unneat
to let it remain in unsightly piles about
