Last evening the city council all

with a Rood relish, as it was coming

be in the work for the coming year.
For the Burlington Wm. Baird ask
ed that a bridge be placed between
t'lara and Cass streets in order that
the street which is to be closed might
bo used by the Burlington, and their
tracks extended in order to faciliate
their work. The matter was given
into the hands of the Streets, Alleys
and Bridges committee.

A letter was then read fjjom t lie

Looking Out For the Garden.
The time has arrived for the
planting of gardens and the govern
ment has asked that everybody raise
a garden, and assist in the winning
of the war that way. The matter of
the neighbor's hen and her brood was
brought up and a notice was asked
to be published warning those keep
ing chickens, against the matter of
allowing them to trespass on the
gardens which are trying to be rais
ed. When the motion came to in
struct the chief of police to issue the
notice, on the matter of chickens,
some one slipped the dog into the
issue, and they both went through,
so watch out for your dogs and
chickens, for they may come up,

The Side Walk Ordinance.
The side walk ordinance which
provides for a 20 foot walk on Main
street from Second to Seventh streets
a five foot walk on Chicago and

which is the only thoroughfare cut
of the city towards the southwest,
since the blocking of Chicago ave

had to sustain the double traffic, on
that account has gotten into an aw
Harris offered a motion that the
street commissioner be instructed to
put the grade on it and fill the holes
which are a fright for sure as Harris
said. There the discussion opened
and some advised filling the holes
with a slip, as they claimed that it
would take a number of loads with
the slips to fill some of the ruts This
evoked a discussian on the matter of
the street commissioner getting after
the matter of the streets, and hiring
an inspector for the paving, and
Harris offered a motion which after
discussion was voted on and lost four
to six, to a point one.

for the fixing up of the alley running

had been ordered last June, and was
not in, and which he said the lack
of, had flooded the garden of a resi

times, and as "gardens are to be

when the culvert would be put in. To
this Bestor said no material could
be gotten and Lutz the street com

Mayor Sat tier had prepared a res
olution vacating some streets in
south portion of the city, he claim. ng
that he had arranged with Wm.
Schwab, for the trading of George
Street fcr enough land to widen out
Gold' Street. A motion was made
for the adoption of the resolution,
but was fought so strongly by But
tery and Johnson that the motion
was amended to lay the matter over
until the next regular meeting, for
as Johnson said this land is valuable
and he did not believe in granting
privileges or vacating streets until
it had been thoroughly investigated.

A call was made by the mayor for
the recommendation for election

INSTITUTE MODERN DENTISTRY.
From Monday's laily.
Dr. Caldwell, who has been prac
ticing dentistry in Plattsmout In but
a short time but who has met with
good success in his profession, has
concluded to institute a suite of
modern, up-to-date set of dental par
lors. To this end he has secured
the rooms which were formerly oc
cupied by the Busch Tailoring es
tablishment in the WagnA hotel
block. His intentions are t7 install
three dental chairs and an X-ray ma
chine for use in taking pictures of
the work completed and making
photographs of severe and unifMial
cases which will require special at
tention. Much work of this char
acter has come to him from people
in this vicinity lately and he reasons
very aptly that it is best to have the
equipment to take care of any and
all practice than to have to send or
take patients elsewhere to gel. it.
The public should, appreciate the
efforts which Dr. Caldwell contem

THE WAR SUMMARIZED
Persistent, attacks with strong
forces of infantry -and lavish use of
artillery have not enabled the Ger
mans to break througli the British
defense, and, after four days, the
great offensive blow in northern
France has not yet brought, a deci
sion for the attackers. Heavy light
ing is in progress around liapaume,
near Peronne and where the British
and French fronts join.
Field Marshal Haig's withdrawal,
previously planned in case of a heavy
attack has been executed in a man
ner described as masterly and great
credit for its success is given to the
small units which, sometimes out
numbered eight "or nine to one, clung
to their points and impeded the Ger
man advance. The British have
made few counter attacks, but every
one attempted has been successful.
British efforts are centered on with
drawing as occasion requires and per
mitting the enemy to wear himself
out before the British defense.

Sommc from which the Germans re
