The of Public schools of Washington comity Lias recently been saying some Good things which were Puli she a in the Washington observer. La Calls attention to the fact that while Pennsy Ivan a leads All the a i Tbs a states in legislative liberality toward the schools in Trio liberality of tin districts the state stands thir tax Mali Ami he might liar added that some parsimonious persons out in one of the Western counties Are actually trying to create sentiment favourable to the enactment of a Law relieving the a districts from any financial Despou Nihi Lity for their schools. Whih Pennsylvania has a minimum school term of seven a ninth Ami a minimum wage of a a a a per month Ohio pays $10 and insists that the school must be kept open eight months. New York forbids relatives of teachers serving of school hoards. Ohio has five directors in each District a a Aeh of whom re a does $2<�?~i or year with a requirement that the schools he visited. Here Are some Good things for Pennsylvania to imitate. Pursuant to action taken by Council Al its last meeting notices were Post. De about town monday calling Atten a Tion to the act to prohibit the throw ing of waste paper sweepings ashes j nails or Ruh Hish of any kind 011 the Street or the disturbing of the contents of any receptacle placed upon the Street or sidewalk. It was decided by Council to strictly enforce this Section of the act after a discussion showing tie indifference and carelessness of most is Ople in matters pertaining to the cleanliness and welfare of Mill Street. It was the sense of the members that the proprietors of tie wagons in the Curbstone Market Are great offenders in this respect and that each Market Day a great Deal of extra labor is imposed upon tie Boroug i employees by obliging them to haul away refuse of Many sorts left behind by the Market wagons. All this it was pointed out is in dear violation of the above act. It was also shown that merchants and others residing along Mill Street offend in a similar manner and that tie evidence of their carelessness can be seen at any Day by waste paper and the like strewn Over the paving. The act was approved april 20,1905, and to assist in the Observance of Section 1 the Borough at considerable exit Ense installed a rubbish cause at convenient intervals along the Street. That these cans Are used ouly occasionally is a fact Well known to every person acquainted with affairs along the Street. It is not the in Teuton of court do that the cans should be use a at least to any great extent by the vendors in the Curbstone Market who Are expected to take care of their own matter aug a offal reloading cabbage leaves Corn husks and the like upon the Wagon and hauling them Hack to the farm. The Section quoted provides that any person or persons who violate tie provision shall upon conviction thereof before any magistrate he sentenced to pay the Cost of prosecution and to forfeit and pay a Fine not exceeding ten dollars for each and every offence and in default of the payment thereof shall be committed and imprisoned in the county jail for a pm Irinod not exceeding Teu Days. The Safe course to pursue would be to comply with tiie above Section for Council evidently intends to enforce the act As indicated by its action in causing the notice to be posted.
