Snow and Ice.
The condition of the sidewalks in the
central city is deplorable since tho
siiow.-faU of yesterday morning. Tho
cifumuldtlon of packed snow and ice
has been allowed to remain In front of
nearly all tho business houses, very few
of their tenants having taken tho
trouble to maku tho walking free from
dnngcr In front of their stores. Pedes
trlnnlsm Is accomplished by n. series
of uncouth gestures on the part of the
stroller and it certainly a dispensation
of Providence that Cnrbondnllans
seem to bo equipped with a steady head
and a sure foot. Hut a stranger who
Is unaccustomed to ti glacial crossing
may come In on thu next train and get
mad If he falls down and bumps him
self and a shovel is sometimes cheaper
than a law-suit.

Waiting for a Car.
Two strangers, with grips, stood on
the corner of Church street and Salem
avenue yesterday at about the noon
hour. One of them leaned with a tired
air up against a telegraph pole and
made "comments on the state 00 the
weather, the accumulation of ice on
walks, and other seasonable topics to
his companion, who replied in grunts
of assent. Occasionally he -would vary
this by leaving his support, walking
a few steps away and peering up and
down the two streets. A citizen,
with nn idea of mnklng new acquaint

additions to the next census of the
city, strolled across the street after
awhile and saluted, politely asking if
