changes In the municipal government
that will necessarily come with the
change, and predicted that It will open
up a new era for Scrnnton.
The Increased population will add
greatly to the Interest of the city both
ut homo and abroad, and while the
results may be confusing at llrst, all
the men chosen in the change fo; pub
lic olllce will undoubtedly fulfill the
highest duties of citizenship for the
public good and welfare.

remarks Mayor Molr took occasion to

It if he sees lit."
His honor abruptly terminated his
remarks just when his hearers expected
him to drift into a more lengthy dis
cussion of the water question, and
called upon Llewellyn Jones and Clnr
Florey to sing a duet. They rendered

year to year.
The New
Htotton Walking Glove
Will be shown in an endless variety of shades and
makes, while the two-clasp styles, which are still in
demand, will also be well represented,
The same remarks apply to Dress Kid Gloves,
while in gloves for evening wear there is no stock
that can compare with ours, within a wide radius of
