Street Commissioner Avery has received
orders to employ every man nnd team that
ho can get , nnd keep them busily at work
cleaning the mud from the paving until all
the paved streets arc put in decent condition.
Broadway lias already been cleaned from
First street to Main , and the work IS also
being vigorously prosecuted on Washington
avenue , Pearl street and lower Broadway.
It will require several weeks to complete the
work , but it Is something that has been
needed for some tlmo. Another thing that
requires immediate attention is to look after
the dirt haulers , ana see that the ordinance
in regard to tight wagons and cndgates is
rigldjy cntorced. It this is not done , it will
bo but a comparatively short tlmo until thcso
streets will "bo ns muddy as over , and the
money now being expended wfll bo practi
cally thrown nway. II the generous contri
butions from the dirt wagons were cutoff , it
would be several years before the streets
, could again become as illthy aud nearly impassible -
passible as they have been this spring. It is
hoped that the new council will continue the
"clean sweep" policy that has thus far been
carried 6ut , and kcep'thp streets in a condi
tion to do credit to tlio city , and at the same
tlmo give the taxpayers that to which they
nro justly entitled.

The Bridge Is Sale.
Work on the now bridge is going on as
us'ial , notwithstanding the fact that the river
is filled with floating Ice. The water is rising
but is not yet high enough to interfere with
work on the bank pieces. During the past
twenty-four hours the water has risen over a
foot , and is now eight feet and thrco inches
above low water mark. Yesterday morning
Manager Harry Blrkcnbino , of the water
works company , received a communication
from Sioux City stating that the Ice on the
river at t' at point was still solidly gorged
both above and below the city , and that there
was considerable snow .on the ground. In
terested parties hero seem to think that there
Is no Immediate danger to bo feared , am :
work on the bridge is now m such shape as
to preclude the possibility of any damage to
anything except pier No. 2 , which might be
carried away by an unusually heavy llow of
Ice , as there is scarcely any masonry work in
It. A largo quantity of iron for the super-
Btructuio is already on the ground , but noth
ing car bo done toward getting it in place
v.r.tll the river Is open and there Is no danger
of ice from the headwaters of the river.

The suggestion is made that these who own
property should begin planting trees. One
gentleman who owns a good deal of bottom
property remarked yesterday : "I'm ' going to
start in at once planting trees. Just look at
the driving park. Only five years ago some
trees were planted there. Look at them now
They give a splendid shade , and every ono o
those trees , which cost only 25 cents apiece
adds $10 to tha value of the property in any
body's eyes. In flvo years moro tboso trees
\vill be as flno as these in Hayllss park. Yes.
cir , I bcllovo every dollar I put into trees wll
ndd 11 vo times as many to the value of my
property , "
If this policy was to bo followed generally
there would be a great improvement in the
appearance of the residence portion of the
city , and tracts which now look uninviting
would bo in great demand , A few dollars
vpent in this way would pay all around.

On 1'lnntlncTrccH Friendly liltcrnry
Competition The New IlrldRC
Move to Protect the City's
Credit Pcraonnf Mention.
There has not been n singlet request asked
jy any railway company but what the city
IBS gladly granted. The policy 1ms been
very liberal toward railway companies , nnd
at times lee liberal for the advantage and
interests of private citizens , who have been
damaged for the sake of What seemed the
public K ° OU. Whenever a railway company
wanted to go anywhere the city has always
said , "there's a street , or an alley , take It ,
help yourself. " Now the opportunity Is
Slven Tor the railways to show how much
they appreciate this sort of generosity. The
city ns a whole Is largely interested lu having
Lho Manawa motor line started up. All that
Li desired is that the railway companies allow
Lho motor line to cross some of tticir tracks.
The motor line company propose to pay the
expense. The right Is all that Is asked. A
few of the railway companies say they will
not grant the request. They have no very
good reason to offer , only they do not want to
uo so. By standing In the way of this enter
prise they simply delay matters , and awaken
a good deal of bad feeling toward them
selves nnd accomplish no good , for In time
they will bo obliged to grant the request. In
view of the situation the railway companies
thus obstructing the enterprise will not bo In
very good condition to ask for further favors.
Competitive liltcrnry Merit.
Yesterday afternoon the two literary so
cieties of the Western Iowa college , the
"Western Iowa" nnd the "Utilo Dulci , " had
a literary contest to demonstrate the rela
tive merits of each. The "Utilo Dulci" is
composed mostly of advanced pupils nnd
post-graduates , forming what Is virtually an
alumni society , and the other consists of the
lower classes and the faculty of the college.
There exists quite n spirit of friendly rivalry
between the two societies , and this fccllncr
resulted in n challenge from the "Utilo
Dulci" for this contest. The subjects were
chosen and the programme arranged by the
' Western Iowa " which had
, Ifty-tliree mem
bers to draw from , and the "Utile Dulci"
twciity-flvo. The following programme was
arranged and carried out :

The question debated was , Resolved , that

The hall was filled with interested spec

those present that the "Utilo Dulci" society
made a "clean sweep , " and the honois were
rendered to them accordingly.
The electric light Ido engine has been
shipped back to the factory and workmen are
busy putting the now Westinghouse in place ,
One engine.tho old Westinghouse , now fur
nishes the entire power for the electric
lighting of the city. This would bo impossi
ble but for the fact that the moonlight is all
that is necessary during the earlier hours ol
the night , so that the tower lights are no1
turned on until after the 10 and 12 o'clock
lights are extinguished. The now engine
will bo in running order in a few days , but
probably it will not bo needed until about the
1st of next month.
The now incandescent lights in the clul
rooms are givinKperfectsatlsfaction , and ills
probable that this system of interior lighting
will soon become quite extensively used ir
the business offices of the city. A single incandescent -
candescent light is amply sufficient to light 11
room twenty feet square for all ordmarj
purposes , and costs but $5 per month ,
giving a much pleasantcr light than the arc !
that costs $12 per month. When once placed
in position the incandescent light needs nc
more attention , nnd does away with all th <
trouble and unpleasant features of rccarbon'
ing , that nro inseparably connected with the
use of the nro light. The tower lights stiL
hold their place in popular favor , and the nt
tendants have learned by actual experience
how to take care of them , and there is ne
cause for complaint on account of lights no1
burning. Its system of electric lighting is
the least of the city's troubles , and is inex
presslbly better than illuminating gas at $
liillio Oxloy's Death. '
Colonel Dalloy , county prosecuting nttor
noy , spent yesterday investigating the deatl
which occurred last week of Lillie Oxloy
alias Maud Clark , an inmate of Bell Clover' :
house of 111 fame , who , Its was believed , hat
taken her own life. Last evening Mollli
Stanley and Mary Iloban , alias Frnnkii
Park , who were inmates of the Clover placi
at the time of the death , were brought befon
Colonel Dailoy and the coroner nnd mos
searchingly examined. Both the girls nd
mittcd that Maud did not commit suicide
She had beeen drinking during the ovenini
and had become noisy. In ordeV to quiet lie
some morphine was procured , and as she salt
she was In the habit of taking the drug i
heavy dose was administered , from the oi
fcctsof which she never recovered. On nl
points but one the evidence of the two girl
agreed , but when questioned ns to who nd
ministered the morphine , caeli said that tin
other did , That it was not suicide was evident
dent from this testimony , but both Colone
Dailoy and 'ho coroner are confident tha
there was no foul ploy.

Detroit Free Press : Ho waited on the
corner for mo to come up. I saw , while
yet a lonp way oil , that he was dilapida
ted and hard-up. It woulel have ucen
plain to a man riding at a gallop that
there had been gross mismanagement of
his energies and finances. Ho kept
sizing mo up as I drew nearer. The
result appeared satisfactory until a dis
tance of ton feet separated us. Then a
wave of disappointment swept over his
face , or woulu have tlono so had it been
given half a show. Ho was disappointed
in mo. 1 didn't look like a man who'd
yield up a quarter without giving value
received. I was just passing him when
ho changed his estimate and abandoned
his theory. I was the kind of a man
after all , and ho put out his hand and
whisperingly inquired :
"Can I speak with you a moment ? "
"Thanks. I have a letter hero from
my brother in Chicago. He writes that
my wife is dead , and of course I want
to go home. Could you snare me a
quarter towards mv railroad mroV"
"Oh , yes. "
"Many thanks. T tell you , mistorI'm
playing'in hard luck. "
"So you aro. Sorry for you. "
That evening I mot him face to face
two blocks further down. Wo recog
nized each other instantly. I was about
to ask him if ho had succeeded in get
ting a ticket when he said :
"Say , mister , lot mo speak with you. "
"It's the first time I over had to ask
for anything of the sort , but I want to
got to Chicago. Hero's a letter inform
ing mo of the death of my wife. "
KAnd of course you want mo to give
you a lift financially. Will a quarter
be of any help ? "
"Oh. yes , sir , and I thank you over
so much. Heaven will surely reward
That night ho went on a howling
drunk and was arrested , but when taken
to the police court ho bogged off. Ho
was considerably rattled , but on the
second day ho placed himself across my
path again. I could realize as I came
along that ho was thinking :
" bald-head I've
"Hero comes that old -
hit twice before. Ho came down so easy
I'll try him again. "
Ana as J came up ho cleared his
throat and said ,
"Say. mister , just let me speak a word
to vou. "
"Hero is a letter from Chicago inform
ing me of the death of my wife. "
"Poor fellow ! "
"And I want to go homo to-night. "
"Of course you do. The train leaves
f Jom the Third street/dopot at 8 o'clock. "
"Yes , sir , but I'm broke , sir. I'm just
out of the hospital , and if you could chip
in a little I'd bo so very "
"Why , of course. Here's a quarter
for you , and I hope you'll have no
trouble getting enough to buy your
ticket. I'm always terry for a man in
your fix. "
"Bless you , sir ! I'll never forgot this ,
never ! "
This was early in the morning. At 6
o'clock , as I wont homo , I saw him about
a block away. Ho was waiting for me ,
and ho intended to say :
"Sorry , sir , to have to trouble you
again. You are the gent who so kindly
gave mo a quarter this morning to help
buy my ticket to Chicago. I lack a dollar
lar yet. and if I dared to hope that is ,
if you would bo &o kind of heart as to
give mo another quarter I think I could
And ho had it all planned out that I
would reply :
"Oh. yes. I remember you. And you
still lack a dollar ? Hero , take this
But when I had approached him with
in twenty feet and ho was clearing his
throat to got the proper pathos worked
up a runaway horse came along and
created a diversion. A crowd gathered
and in the excitement the striker lost
sight of mo. I saw him trotting around
through the crowd in search of a hare ,
but ho failed to hit my trail. At S
o'clock next morning , how < 5ver : fortune
smiled on him again. Ho didn't intend
to take chance this time. Ho had prob
ably reasoned during the night that if I
saw him waiting for me I would stop
short or turn back. Ho was therefore
hidden in a doorway and ho came out
upon mo suddenly and began :
"Heaven knows how hard it is for mete
to have to ask another favor of you whc
have boon so kind , but "
"Favor of mo ? " I never granted you
a favor. 1 never saw your face before ,
What is it man ? "
' Why sir I want to go to Chicago to
bury my wife. "
"Oh , I see. And you havn't the
money to pay your fare ? "
"That's it , sir. "
"Well , I'm sorry for you. Hero's o
quarter and I hope you'll have nc
trouble raising the rest. "
"Thank you , sir , and I'll never forgel
If ho laid for mo again that day ho
missed mo , hut next morning ho once
more barred the way. Ho came up tc
me quite contldohtly and wild :
"You remember of giving mo a quarter -
tor yesterday , I suppose ? "
"You ? No , sir.1 '
"It was to help mo to Chicago to hurj
my wife , "
"No recollection of any such thing ,
' But you are certainly the gent who
has given mo money four or live times
this week , to help mo buy a ticket. "
"I bog your pardon , sir. I never saw
you before. Good day , sir. "
Ho stared after mo with open mouth
and next day I saw him in the police
court on trial for vagrancy. I wen over
to him and asked him if ho had buried
his wife , and if ho didn't feel broke un ,
urd if a quarter would do him good ,
and after a long , hard stars utmohc
"Say , you go to Halifax. "

THE MAN AND THE FRY.
A Hungry Customer "Who Kept an
Kyi ) on tlio Oysters in tlio Pan.
Philadelphia North American : He
wandered into a down-town restaurant
and gravitated toward the counter
whore oysters are cooked to order while
you wait. Ho was a tall man , with n
nose like a horn fcpoon and a general air
of financial paralysis. He climbed up
on ono of the ntools reserved for cus
tomers who desire to watch the bivalvee
cooked , and gentry whispered "Fry. "
The cook nodded nnd began prepara
tions at onco. It was none too soon for
the tall man , He apparently had not
eaten a fried oyster since 1873 , and ho
watched the counting out of six much
bolloured oysters with intense interest.
Leaning over the counter toward the
cook , ho whispered insinuatingly :
"Say , "
"What do you want ? "
"Aro tbosoallAl Havanas straight ? "
"What ? "
"I mean are they the best brand ol
oysters ? "
"Regular thing for fries , " answered
the cook , impatiently.
There was a silence for a moment
while the oysters went into thopanaiTd
"What is it ? "
"I noticed that the fourth oyster was
smaller than the others ; can't you
throw in another for good luck ? "
"Impossible , " the cook answered
shortly , us ho put the oysters on the fire.
And then the hungry customer concen
trated his whole soul in his eyes and
watched the spluttering and frying pro
cess begin. Suddenly a drop of grease
fell into the lire , and a popping Bound
and a blaze resulted. The effect on the
hungry watcher was tremendous. Ho
( sprang up excitedly on his btool , leaned
far over the counter with his eyea fas *
toned on the pan , and called :
