age, and that the garbage be collected
by a man and team .employed, by the

was considered by the council as "the
boat solution of the garbago suestlou
so far as disposal is concorucd, and
the city attorney was instructed to
draft an ordinance covering tho sub
let. TTho chief of pollco was Instruct6d
to arrange a dog pound and take up
all dogs on which the license had not
been paid. The animals will bo hn
poundod for twenty-four hours and if
tho owners fall to tako out license and
call for their animals they, tho animals
