of bridges in the city up with the
board of county commissioners who
had been very obliging in the matter
I'nd had made a personal inspection
f the old bridge on Maiden Lane,
the one near the second ward school
and the one at 17tb and Oak street.
The commissioners had found that
they could repair the bridge at Maid
en Lane by making an extension of
the bridge for some distance and also
r.t 17th and Oak street the bridge
could be repaired. The bridge near
the school house the commissioners
had agreed to replace with either a
wooden bridge or a concrete culvert.
On motion cf Councilman Ptacek it
was decided to ask the commissioners
to put in the wooden bridge near the
school rather than the concrete cul
vert. On motion of the finance commit

bill turned back to them for investi
gation. On the suggestion of Chair
man Schulhof of the finance commit
tee of the council the light bills
will hereafter go to the lighting
committee to investigate before they
are taken up with the finance com
mittee. Chairman Iverson of the
light committee reported that the
lights ordered installed several
months ago were not in yet and it
had been claimed that there was a
shortage of material to carry on the
work. Councilman Howe stated that
he had inquired of the lighting com
pany as to the costs of operation cf
their plant for the last month and
had been informed that to secure a
detailed report it would be necessary
to get a report from the main office in
Omaha, but the local management
had given him a rough estimate of
the result of the business which had
showed $300 surplus for the month
from the electric service and $100

that it would be impossible to reduce

was taken to Council Bluffs, M'here
she will spend some time with rel
atives and friends in that city. Mrs.
Smalley has suffered a severe break
down in health and is in very serious
nervous condition and it will require
some time to restore her to her
former health. Mr. Smalley accom
panied his wife to the Iowa city.
Buff Orpington cockrels. Inquire
of John H. Behrns. Nehawka, Neb.

those lovely boxes of stationery on
display at the Journal office.
