Hver, voter should see to it
person.- it no man is voted for
. and elected t.. the important office
of councilmaii, until he has promis
ed to use his hest endeavors for city
improvments, in the way of grad
ing paving and sewering. The first
real growth in this city started
with the building of the bridge
across the river' the next was the
building of our water plant. Hut
the most substantial continuous
growth of this city can he dated
directly from the grading, sewer
ing and paving of our streets.
To keep up the splendid growth
of the past year it is necessary
that something of a permanent
nature be done, and since so much
is needed to be done in this city,
should be relegated
T.iL to the rear at the coming election.
The work that especially com
Lends itself, as most urgently
needed is the paving with brick or
some other suitable material of
Washington avenue and Hlnfcitreets
toM.P. depot. Hut little gradin
would be required on these streets.
,L ""Vhich would make the cost of pav
" ,ing comparatively low.
f- In order to make a line tliorougn-
7 fare of Washington avenue.it would
' be necessar- to extend thejsewer to
Locust . street, infact the sewer
wotdd have to be extended before
any paving could be done on the
avenue. There are numerous streets
where but a few dollars invested jn
grading would greatly increase the
value and appearance of adjoining
The city is benefitted not only by
the enhanced value of property by
these improvements but by the em
ployment of our people as well;
whereby all the money paid out re
mains here in circulation and helps
ttie laboring class particularly.

Dr. Rudloph Ratten and Carl

seriousl' for both of them. It seems
that Kuntzman, thew a clever at
Kauen, that struck him on the chin
and laid it open to the bone, several
stitches were made necessary to
up the ugly wound. it was
plain that had the cleaver
Htrurk with the Fame force two
inches lower, Mr. Kauen would
have shuttled oil this mortal coil on
very short notice. A cleaver is not
a very pleasant instrument to run
against as Kauen can abuudanty
We now have our spring hats in

before Kaeter. It will pay you,

HUGECHUNKS OF METAL
Two of the Curios-ties Which Visitors
W ill tee at th; World's f-" i r.
When excavations were made re
cently for the foundation of the
twenty story Masonic Temple, which
is rapidly going up at the corner of
State and Randolph streets in Chi
cago, an eighteen ton mass of iron,
copper and other metals was dis
covered. A wholesale hardware
store stood on the lot at the time of
the great fire in 1871, and this mass
of iron represents a portion of the
stock which was melted by the in
tense heat and precipitated into the
sub-basement. It will be exhibited
at the World's Columbian Imposi
tion by I). A. Stout.
The Copper Otieen Company, at
Hisbee, A. T., will exhibit at the
fair a mammoth specimen of ore
from their mines. The work of
chiseling the piece out has been
going on for some time, and great
care is being taken in its extraction.
It is estimated that when ready for
shipment it will weigh five tons and
will be in the shape of a brick. The
specimen is from the big slope from
which uch beautiful specimens
have been taken and will contain
about every known character of
copper formations and colorings.
It will, without doubt, be the mo.-1
attractive specimen on exhibition.

the cab of his engine and almost
instantly killed. The fireman es

frightened. The engine was a com
plete wreck, together with several
