OBJECTION TO STREET CARNIVAL
Residents, on First Avenue Dislike
Having Street Fenced I'p.
: The executive committee, of the Commer-
'clal club, under the auspices of which the
street fair and carnival will be held this
year, yesterday decided to invite all the
fraternal and military organisations -, of
the city and surrounding town to take
part In the parade, which will mark the
opening of the carnival on Monday, Sep
tember 8. '
Some of the residents on First avenue are
not over pleased at the prospect of having
the street In front of their homes fenced
off again this year, not to mention the
annoyance from the nolse of the street fair,
'and there has been some desultory talk the
last few days of enjoining the carnival
company from occupying the streete. There
was soma similar talk last year, but the
matter waa amoothed over and It possibly
may be arranged this year without taking
the matter Into the courts. There has also
been some talk of enjoining the park' Com
missioners from permitting any portion of
Bay Una park being fenced off. Those who
are protesting contend that the park com
missioners are exceeding their authority
'n permitting the park to be shut off from
he public for a whole week.

Women' Christian association less than a
month remains for all members more than
35 years old living at the Institution' build

to find other quarters.
Twelve whole months were allowed for
a quiet and dignified solution of this det

a girl wants to have a beau at the Toung

rector's. If he passes inspection he may
call once every month between the hour
of 8 and 8:45, occupying one whole (hair
to himself In a brilliantly lighted parlor,
If In these congeninl surroundings the
young man were to fall Into a stupor and
stay until 8:46, it was the duty of the
matron to call time on him..
Spiteful assoclatloners have charged that
these rules are responsible for the large
number of girls who have stayed on and
on there until they were past the dead
tine. Many a lover who Is .willing to go
through fire for a girl shrinks at ice
But there are about a dozen suspect left
In the building who have as yet made no
sign of departure. They have not been
with the association thirty-five year and
consequently there is no way of proving
that they are past the age limit. New
