To The Public.
A petition regular in form was
filed on July 28th with the city
clerk under the Initativo act proposing
a now water ordinance. The clerks in
forms mo that thirty days have elapsed
since the filing of this petition and no
election has boon called for the
reason that no deposit has boon
rande as a guarantee of the costs of
the election should such an ordinance
fail to currv. The attorney of tho pe
titioners informs mo that it is tho
contention of the petitioners that a
guarnntoo is not required and that
there is no present Intention to deposit
I have graye doubts as to the validity
of the proposed ordinance, if enacted,
for the reason that it provides that the
city shall refund the price paid . for
moturs already bought, if the pur
chasers should so elect, but provides no
measures for raising and appropriating
tho funds to so do. If such proposi
tion is invalid it would undoubtedly
avoid the entire ordinance as being an
inducing part thereof.
Under those circumstances I have
suggested to tho water commissioner
the desirability of proceeding with the
enforcement of tho present ordinance
providing for meter installation.

; OOSE hay is
in the world to manage. I here's
no getting around that. The wind
plays havoc with it. It slips and
slides off poorly loaded wagons. In
barn and yard much of it is wasted. It is much
too bulky to haul or ship far.
Handling hay is a problem, and right here
is the answer in the baling. An I H C hay
press puts your hay in convenient shape for
handling and economical feeding; no nc6d to
build outdoor stacks exposed to all weather,
for lack of barn space. You can ship the bales
to cities and distant places where the hay
market and prices arc good. Large cities,
where stora'gc space is costly, require hay to be
baled, and top prices are paid. Shredded corn
fodder makes a good feeding substitute for all
the hay you may ship to the city.
H C Hay Presses
arc the only kind you will consider in buying,
when you have mado a comparison, studied
the construction, the durability, the features,
and the possibilities of the I H C hay presses.
You will find both styles made in three sizes,
14 x, 18, 16 x 18, and 17 x 22-inch bale chamber,
baling from six to sixteen tons per day.
The efficiency of the I H C features, the
self feeder, toggle joint plunger, bale tension,
and spring roller tucker, prove their worth on
demonstration. If j'our choice is a motor
power press, you will have a year-round ma
chine, for the engine is always ready to do farm
jobs for you, pumping, sawing, grinding, run
ning the repair shop, electric light plant, etc.
In the horse power press, study the pull power
principle, compound leverage, and the low,
step-over. It is the most efficient press sold.
Drop in on your local dealer and look over
the I H C hay press line. Get catalogues from
him, or, write the
International Harvester Company of America
Also, That the Elk's lodge bo given a
vote of thanks for opening their beauti
ful homo for our entertainment
And, That Rev. II. G. Knowles be
given a vote of thanks for the us! of
his lantern which was indispensable in
