Tery much pleased to note
the improvements in the way
of bouseouilding and street
making in and around the
city. I took a stroll all alone
not tong since and saw that
the homes of our banker, D
!jj 'Ooltrane, and our hard
ware nftra. J C "Wadsworth, had
been completed. They show up to
a good advantage and are of the
model kind. The next new build-
ins that came to my view was the
house of Mr. D II Hoover, which is
in the hands of the carpenters. J t
will be quite a handsome structure.
As my legs were stiff from the want
lot exercise, and as things grew more
interesting, I meandered through
the new street that runs from nortn
Main to Cannons factory. It will
not be amiss to Btate that the au
thoritiea did a good job when they
opened up this street that is not
only a necessary convenience, bv( a
very jggtty drive. At the factory

eoing up. From this clattering,

Ir. W H Lilly is also erectixg a
substantial office building in his
yard. The man that mixed the mud
had his morter box arranged very
conveniently on the sidewalk. A
pair young lady and gentleman, of
the star-gazing kind were walking
down that street, and being so ab-
sorded in conversation they stum
bled agaisnt the box, fell in the
mortar, and had it not been for the
timely aid of one of my friends who
was near by, something serious
might have resulted. As it was, a
