The improvements in this line however mostly lie on Mill Street and 011 Market and Mahoning streets near Mill. Elsewhere about town the sidewalks Are the subject of much complaint. Do some of the Hack streets especially whore the Light is poor walking after night is a feat that can Only be accomplished with either safety or Grace by those who Are accustomed to every Inch of the Way. If it is possible for a pavement to be so bad that it becomes worse than none at All it is the Clumsy variegated sort one is Apt to encounter made up of hag stones of All sizes of different thickness and ill fitting Laid thirty years ago or longer. By the time the pedestrian adapts himself to the uneven surface he reaches a pavement of another sort probably of Brick where half the bricks Are missing and to stumbles along his Way in anything but a Placid Frame of mind. A very bad feature of our sidewalks is the diversity of grades 011 which the pavements Are Laid. One has to be very careful at some places Rafter dark that he does not stumble Over the offset which Marks the dividing line Between two properties. Persons unfamiliar with the sidewalk Are exposed to a Good Deal of danger at such places and several painful Falls have been sustained.
