Smith Eros., tho Xorlh Alain street
meatmen, make the announcement that
after tins week they shall discontinue
the sale of fresh bocf. They will con
tinue to keep all other kinds of meat,
however, the same, as usual. Their
reasons for this change arc that their
business has grown so that they are un
able to pcisonally superintend tho cul
ling up of beef, and good cutters are so
hard lo secure that the profits will not
warrant them in longer "continuing the
sale of this kind of meat.

Caught By Our Line.
(By Special Wire.)
The wires are down, but by a round
about circuit we have rushed the follow
ing answers for a suffering lot of tub
scribors. No human being is responsible for
the mud which may have found its way
into the pipes which bring the Bolster
reservoir liquid to the city. Tho mud
may have found its way there to escape
being used for earth works at tho out
break of the war but it is there, how
who put it there, or how to rid ourselves
of it, we make no attempt to answer.
While we dislike to bo harsh to any
one, yet there are some people in this
city who ought to bo enjoined from
breathing if they are forever to wear a
kickers badge and find fault with every
good nieasuro that finds its way into the
city. One of tho greatest obstacles in
the past has been the continuous rag
chewing along our streets, once let it
cease, and there would not be so many
ft will be necessary to make an investi
gation as to why spring water compan
ies were not taxed. But why tax the
people who are trying to give us sonic
of the "Fountain of Life" lo quench the
thirst. If we taxed every public bene
faction in this city, of course wo would
bo out of debt. But wh wishes to do
any such thing?
.The messago boy has made me wait
to take tho following dispatch from tho
"sent of local war, Martin Brook," here
it is.
Why is there such a vast differenco in
the tax to be placed on local real estate?
Who can explain? Why tax the poor
a much greater portion than we do the
rich? Who can answer?
Will any injunction be placed on
those who dare remove the sand from
the streets in Factory village?
When will tho Bachelors club dissolve
and go out of business in this city?
Is the city looking after tho interests
it may have in tho contest over tho Al
drieh will?
Will Harre ever do anything to reduce
the rate of lire instiranco in our limits?
Is it truo that one of the local rail
roads carry granito between this city and
Alontpelier free of chargo?
Will the officials do their duty toward
thoso who refuse or fail to connect with
tho sewer as ordered?
The ball game is claiming my atten
tion so faro ye well
The Listf.nku.
On the Corner.
"Hurrah for the kickers," was the
first thing to call my attention to the
meeting place of the club last night,
which took place near the gate of tho
Central park. At this time the Inspect
or was seated on tho steps of nearby
house talking to one of the members
best young ladies, so was able from
this location to secure the report of the
" I PfriHlflH VA n.nfltr,l.,n. H . , ,
,,.....1111. vjii careiui
study I learned that the club had been
vuvi-img luuuiBuives oecause tne Mayor's
veto to tho Salvation Arrau hn.l !,....
sustained by the council. Tho not
question of importance to the club was
the moving of the old band stand. This
was the real debate of the evening and
of course broue-ht fnrili 111" II, x. a!lw...l
bursts ot eloquence from this "Kinder
garten or politicians." As usual the
Huss was tho lirst kicki n.O nrnlnr tl
would like to know who has n i..:
ness to remove that band stand lrom the
public park. It has been an object of
admiration by tramps and loafers for
many years. Why lake such a historic
landmark from tho public park. We
will not allow it lo bo done. If the city
is hard up fur cash why not rent it to
one of our hapnv aldermen nnd l..t i.:,
start a branch of his clam bake house"
If tho owner of the gun boat does not
want it, then fix it into a tenement or
use it; for an overflow for the modern
cage now used as a jail. No follow
kickers, we must not allow thai valuable
building to bo moved. Am I right ..en.
tlemen?" The wholo crowd Vdcd
" es. Ross, you're always right The"
Chief lUOSIlll llf ll:(. ,.,,!. I.7..I. i.i
a - .....j iu,.K ins scat
and another loud mouthed loafer follow-
wi"i incso remarks:
"I used to be an occupant of lh0 band
,i wimn mc wife was angry oe-
cause I had taken too much of the River
street liquid I used to uso the bam
stand for sleeping apartments, and I
dislike to see my only safe place, when
followed by tho broom or stove poker
lakon away. 1 shall not allow ll, will
you, my esteemed kickers?" And cries
of "No, no.no I" answered his question.
Then came the club dude with a wean
little speech told as follows, "ion
honor by jove now near 1
say that having rendered such sweet
music in that stand, on my bass drum, I
inustraiso my voico in protest, pun
honor by jove. Those sweet tones
uhti.li 1 have iriven with my drum
sticks is not equaled often, and 1 must
save the place, J win kich inuiungmi .
awainst its removal, pon honor, do
you agree with me gentlemen?" E rory
member present saia "jes .
The fourth speaker was a wood chop
per who had been engaged in helping
cut a route for the electric railroad
through Aladlliver valley, and ho said
"When I was a kid, I used to play tho
cymbals, and occupied the old band
stand many times, and I don't intend to
see any smart Barro people take it away
without informing them that I have a
fist as big as that of Corbett, and shall
nee it." T-his pleased the crowd and
they all agreed to stand by the prize
lighting kicker. After the speeches
wero over, it was voted to ask for an
ininnction to prevent its removal.
The Inspector cares littlo whether the
stand goes or not, but all the kicking in
the world from such men. as compose
this club of loafers will not cause the
proper officials to cease in their purpose
to remove the stand. It ought to be
taken to any other section of the city.
It ht.9 been a retreat for tramps, loafers,
and bums long enough. Since th band
went to war or on a vacation, the stand
has been only ihe nightly roost for
drunkards and other outcasts of society.
So better take aud give the stand a little
h i n. The Insnector would inform the
club that they better save their powder
for a more nouie cause.
The next matter to claim the club's
axe was the placing of these granite
chips in front of tho entrance to the
park. Now the Inspector is afraid to
speak "out in meeting" and so has de
cided to call it that his notes on the
question are in short hand and he is un
able to translate them. He does re
mouiber however, that some one said
the crowd ought to have a "Removal
Bee" and lake out the granite chips.
Who will'scconil the motion? The club
here decided to go up and enjoy the
great summer beverage frm Williams
town hills, known as the "Extract of
Martin Brook". With a wild yell, tho
Boss cried "forward march for Martin
Brook", where I snpposo they tented
last night, free from ihe eyes and ears
of the
Waste Basket Mistakes.
Already the horses of this city are
learning the way to do when tho trolly
comes along. Yesterday a local mer
chant had a horse hitched to his delivery
wagon, and the team was eloso to the
ear track, when the electric approached
the horse slowly turned his head lo one
side until the trolly had passed.
The office cat has gone on her vaca
tion, aud "Scoop" our new dog takes
its place.
The Kid has been asked to tell how
the mud came in the city water pipes
but, well, rather dislikes lo do so.
The Kid will call a war council to
morrow on the Martin Brook. All in
terested parties are notified to be present.
'The happy man among us at present
is the maker and vender of tho ice
cream. Aloro dimes go for that than
for the psrk.
Our tax rate is too high, and we
