Weeping Water ha3 been greatly dis
cussed pro and con, all admitting
that it was necessary for sanitary
purposes and as well to prevent dam
age from storms, but was considered

taxes higher. When the time came

zenry that the system be had, not
withstanding the cost will be $112,
000. On account of the necessity for
the materials which are hard to get
in and the latness of the season, the
building cf the sewers will be post
poned until spring. However, it is to
come and bring employment to those
wanting work and as well bring
health to the inhabitants.
