She then begins to go on Long peddling journeys with her Mother elder sister or responsible female Friend walking barefooted As Many As 15 Miles a Day. At is she is vigorous and Tough As a Mountain Pony and. Like most Mountain bred women she is comely. She carries now upon her head a tray and Burden of from 120 to 150 pounds earning less than 30 shillings a month by travelling 50 Miles a Day As an itinerant seller. Forty or 50 Miles always bearing a Burden of Over 100 stones Are added As the tray is emptied of merchandise to maintain the customary and this for an income of a franc a Day out of the franc she has her food and sleeping quarters to procure and her clothes to get. Twenty francs a year will keep her in clothes. A Brief Chemise and a Light Calico Robe constitute her travelling apparel. On her head she wears a soft Toche or pad upon which the Tait tray is placed. She wears no shoes she needs none. The soles of her feet Are Tough ened to something like India rubber feeling no Asperities of surface bidding Defiance to the sharpest flints. Her food is sous a Day for bread or biscuits a few sous for ragout a few sous for some cheap liquor Vail i per haps 15 sous in All. Her sleeping quarters might be expected to bring her daily expenses up to a franc nevertheless such is her ability to economize that she not Only manages to live on her income which seems but actually saves enough to set her self up in some simple business when her youth and physical Powers de Cline.

In this Section of the South there Are Al editor see in y or of out Iota last an article re Garding the Cost of the Marble Rock water works and from tie general tone of the article i believe we can discuss to a financial condition of the town in s Friendly Nia Aner whereby we and per haps others my be benefited. Now As to the amounts paid j. B. Clow very alarming and Why such a thorough investi24tion should be or. Green Wood seems to be Able to get at lie records. If the ability and honesty of the Council is not la question Why this persistent attack on their actions. They bad Only to construct a water works system which was almost unanimously demanded by the people. They thought that they could Complete it for and undertook the Job when it was completed the incidentals which ate always in evidence in. The construction of new enterprises be they private or Public run the expense to say 000 which will fully cover the Cost of construction. Had it not been for Ibe 20 which the Counci has been compelled to pay out for attorney fees nud costs not of their own making the town would have the water works system a l be nearly free from any float bag indebtedness. Now As Section 7-llc. This Law was passed by the general Assembly and did not go into effect until july 4th 1902, about a month Jefter use water works system was in re Sciog Ortler. Ii is a Well Deliard principle of Law that no Law is retroactive and it is our opinion that the Council does not have to a statement of the in to of utilities established before this Luw went in to effect and we have seen no statement made by any town or City which included the Cost of Public utilities constructed before the Law became opera Tive. Kight Here we wish to make b person he statement. In our Issue of october or. Ramsay refers to the Bill of Ellis Ellis for 8101.25, which did not sip pair to. The Sacal statement of Ace diag to or. Own statement the Bill tvs billowed february and As the Law was nut even introduced into Shi legislature at the it time it would have Beau a Mist Alt to it in the Titan Cine statement of 1003, had it been included in said statement the Council would have Leid itself open to the charge that it inserted the item to create prejudice against or. Ramsay. Thie item was under discus Sion at the time the statement was issued and we held that it should not appear in the statement because the Law wbb not in Force at the time. We have a personal interest m Titis matter As the financial statement must be Public bed and Nnoli nah rate of 10 cents per line. It is there fore to our financial interest to Havo the statement As Long As possible but hav ing sex Imi oed this Law we have never been convinced in our own mind that we could compel the Council to Issue a statement giving in detail the coat of a Utility which was put in before the Law went into effect and we have Yeeu no statement from any of the cities und towns in the state giving the Cost of such utilities erected or construed be fore the Law became operative it was on this account that we voluntarily published tue statement in our Issue of october 20th so that the people Nigat have an approximate idea of the Cost of the system established before the Law went into effect. In tha financial statement of 190i the Council gives essentially All Tea Oiher facts demanded by the Section the Council could have been a Little c explicit but the facts Are there and be ascertain d.

As a Rule the stuff they bring us and that finds its Way Here j through other channels is old j and broken and uninteresting but now and then something of rare artistic value turns up in the lot and we would Only be too glad to take it out and make Good the Coin value but the Law forbids. That by the Way is no doubt the very reason Why we occasionally get such articles.
