Of oourse, the great public who pay the saleries know nothing of the squabble and neither do I,' for Dad pleads ignorance when I ask him the whyfor of some of these things. And I guess it would not do any good for the public to know about the scrap between the secretary treasurer and the account' ant. The funny part of it is how the finance committee hold a meeting and agree to give the accountant what he wants, and then the aeore-tnry puts the kibosh on the whole business, and the committee backs down so hard as to puncture a hole in the seat of their trousers. As to why tliey did this is, of course, none of the business of the great general publi' l.j pay the salaries. Then thc.o is anothrT tunny thing in how the aldermen, at least the most of them, tell people privately how that they think the affairs in the city office are' not run right, and yet when they, come to the council where there is a newspaper reporter they stick up for the management of the office. It is not known why they do this but, of course, thia too ia none of the business of the great public who pay the salaries. What Have You to Offer?

They ought to know where they are going to have the trees and driveways and flower beds and picnic grounds aind swimming beach and all the rest of the things that are to be there to make it a popular resort. The city does not want to have the experience again of plamting trees and making grass boulevards and then have the whole darn thing ripped up and uprooted because they did not start to plaii far enough back.
