The Building Owned by H. M: Soennichten Could Be Purchased
at a Very Reasonable Figure by Gty, Also the Old Livery
Stable on Pearl Street Is Offered to the Council.
Since the committee, acting for
the Y. M. C. A., purchased the
Wetcnkamp block, Ihc city coun
cil has been looking for a suitable
place for a city hall and an office
for the police judge. They con
templated purchasing the building
directly east of the Wetenkamp
Idock, but they were too slow in
their maneuvers and it was sold
before they "got to it." The coun
cil and police judge have oc
cupied their present quarters for
a good many years, but have to
give way just as soon as possible
so that the building can be put in
shape for the Y. M. C. A. They
have now an opportunity of the
refusal of two propositions, and
they should consider the sur
roundings and the location of
both properties before they invest
The old livery barn on Pearl
street, west of thejiew Woodman
building, is one proposition, and
the present building of II. M.
Roennichshen in the Waterman
block is another. Mr. Soennieh
sen has for some lime contem
plated building a brick store room
on the lot he purchased a year
or more ago west of the Journal
building, and desires lo sell his
present building to aid him in
erecting his large new quarters.
Mr. Soenniclisen lias offered this
property, we understand, at a very
reasonable price, and if the city

William Ferguson, who resides
near lloek lilull's, bad the misfor
tune to lose his barn by lire yes
terday during the hili wind. Mr.
Ferguson was absent from home,
having driven to I'lal I smoul h, and
his wife was at one of the neigh
bors at the lime', lie had been
trimming his orchard the past few
days and burning I be brush, but
supposed (he lire was all ex
tinguished, and he is at a loss to
know how I he lire got started.
Mr. Ferguson's neighbor, John
(locheiiour, discovered the lire
after it stalled and hurried to the
spol, and finding his neighbor's
hogs all under the barn drove
them out. Sparks were. Hying to
ward the corncrib and dwelling
house. Mr. Cioclienoiir prevented
these from catching by whipping
out I lie brands. A small crib in

The barn was valued at ? 2 fit I
and was insured for $100. Mr.
Ferguson feels very grateful to
his neighbor, Mr. (iochenour, for
watching his dwelling ami corn
crib and for driving out the. stock
from under the barn, as there is
liltle doubt but the whole would
have been burned had it not been

buys it it will be money well
spent, and at the same time aid a
worthy citizen and business man
in more extensive improvements,
which will add considerably to
the appearance of the city. And
another thing which the council
should take into consideration is
that the Soennichsen building is
centrally located and in the next
block west of the quarters the
council and police judge have so
long occupied and in close proxi
mity to the court house.
It is the Journal's opinion that
the council should consider well
the location of both propositions
and the amount, of money to be
expended for each in the way of
repairs, etc. The Soenniclisen
building is J 00 feet long by 28 feet
in widlh. The upper story would
make plenty of room for a city
hall and give the police judge a
nice office to himself, if so de
sired. We believe if the com
mittee will investigate properly
the location and surroundings of
both it would have no trouble in
'deciding in favor of the Soennicli
sen building. A city building is
the property of Hie taxpayers of
I he city, and the councilinen who
are presumed to carry out the
wishes of those for whom they
serve, we believe (hey will come
directly to the conclusion that the
Soenniclisen proposition is the

famous Indiana scientist has
come to the front with an offer to

of them have spent large sums of
money seeking a cure. I know
that these people hesitate about
investing money in medicine be

getting well. Thousands have
told me that story and many
thousands of the same people
have told me afterwards that my
treatment had cured them after
doctors and everything else had
failed. I want to show these
despairing people that all the
newspaper talk about my treat

What Is the Use?
Miss Teresa Hempel is wonder
ing this morning what is the use
lo expend money in beautifying
her home premises when the town
cows are allowed to roam over her
lawn and disfigure and dig up the
sod. Miss Hempel has just had
McMakcn & Son sod her terrace,
on the advice of the park com
mittee, to beautify the home
premises, and the work was no
more than completed than three
or four of the town herd took
possession of the lawn, and when
driven off scrambled over the
bank, taking the sod down with
them. To say that the lady feels
discouraged is putting it too mild
ly, and she has a right to feel in
dignant al. Ihe carelessness of the
owners of the cattle. Someone is
liable for Ihe damage, and Miss
Hempel proposes to find out who
it is and the party will lie re
quested to pay Ihe damage.
