I do not want to start any dis-
cussion against anybody or any
business, but it seems that it is
time for the people to take some
action to put our water works on
a paying basis and also to light
our streets. Our water works
is almost a failure, our streets
are dark and we are having to
vote an extra tax to run the city
government and the question is,
are we as citizens, going to let
this continue and gradually grow
worse, until our taxes are so
burdensome in this town that
one can scarcely afford to own
Why not lease the water
works to some one for enough
to pay the interest on the water
works bonds and the sinking
fund, if possible, and grant to
him a charter to erect an elec-
tric light plant and light our
streets and in connection there-
with put in an ice plant? There
are men who are willing to ac-
cept such a proposition and, I be-
lieve, will make a favorable con-
If no such man can be found,
then only one other alternative,
it seems to me, awaits us, and
that is for the city to vote suffi-
cient bonds again to put in a
light plant to run the water
works and remove or sell all the
machinery at the river and put
in an electric pump, and in ad-
dition thereto light the streets.
We .do not desire to censure
those in charge, they perhaps,
under the present system, can
do no better; but conditions are
growing worse and our city is
growing deeper in debt each
It seems to me that it is time
for us to have some discussion
on this subject. What has the
Gazette to say about it?

HERE arc many cars that sell for less money than the Paige. We could
readily build, them ourselves if we considered that policy the best one.
But we don’t.
We firmly believe that Self-Respect, Comfort and Enduring Satisfaction have an
actual market value. So we build those things into our product.
We take just a little more time—just a little more care in selecting materials—
just a little more pride in our work. And the result is a real motor car—
not a makeshift or compromise.
Unless we are greatly mistaken, the Paige “SiX'39” is just the kind of car that you
want. It costs $1330 and it is worth every penny of the price.

truly wise and careful — it will be the car of your
