"The Big- Consolidated Street Car
company, is preparing to relay its
tracks on Cedar avenue and put down
the old cobble stones between tracks."
"What's tho kick?"
"They're an eyesore and "
"Come forward, Mr. McCormick,"
called the mayor to the manager of
tho Big Consolidated.
"We're only relaying one track,"
said McCormick, "next year we'll relay
the other and put down Medina block
stone between both tracks."
"Is that satisfactory, Mr. Gleason?"
asked the mayotf.
"Yes, if they do it."
"Will you write a letter to the board
agreeing to do that?" inquired the
mayor of Mr. McCormick.
"Another thing," 'said Major Glea
son, "they're putting these cobble
stones on our lawns."
"Will you repair all lawns?" said
the mayor, turning to McCormick.
"We are willing to do anything we

"What's the next business?" in

Before the board adjourned Man

"Hold on," exclaimed tho mayor,

"Stop it, will you, until we agree as,

"I don't know as I should."
"Then you won't?"
"I don't see why I should."

deputy director of public works came
forward. "Go richt to Cedar avenue

A Real Hero.
"You go first, Jim; you aro mar
ried." The two men were inside a
boiler cleaning it and their lives wero
in peril because of the inrushing
steam. James, the man addressed for
whom William had stepped aside,
rushed up the ladder and escaped with
his life, though badly burned. When
William had reached tho top tho flesh
was dropping from his limbs. His act
of heroism cost him his life.
It Is hard to imagine such an act,
such thoughtfulness, such regard for a
homo and surroundings, it is our duty,
however, to place the name of the man
high on tho honor roll of the real
heroes of our day and time. Buffalo

Two Great Secrets.
Adele, bolder and more curious than
Victor (for she waB a girl), wanted to
find out what was the meaning of his
silent admiration. She said: "I am
sure you have secrets. Have you not
one secret greater than all?" Victor
acknowledged that ho had secrets and
that one of them was greater than all
the rest. "Just like mo!" cried Adelc.
"Well, come now, tell mo your greatest
secret and I will tell you mine." "My
great secret," Victor replied, "Is that
I love you." "And my great secret is
that I love you," said Adele, like an
echo. (From Love Letters of Victor
