Not 20, 30 or 40 years ago. Seventy, perhaps? The good old days of which many love to sing. What was the city like at the turn of the: century? Streets frequently were ankle deep with mull and excre— ment. Rains left pools of odiferous water along the curb, there being little drainage. In dry weather mud was replaced by dust. Single arc lights provided inferior street lighting. Large. sections had no lights. Many streets at night were as present. When were the good dreary as a country lane. Many alleys were lined with the customary Chic Soles architectural masterpieces. Homes were heated by a livmg room stove. And there were everywhere. It is true a dollar would go because it had to. A day’s labor frequently netted only a dollar. Those were thegood old days. Want to go back to them? LOCAL NEWS ITEMS «— MEETINGS IN VJRA‘NSON. FIOyd' Simone 3n rm.
