,11 was ii most felicitous event, and It
will mark an epoch In the history ot
the company, which will have wood
reason to recall the nlsht that the tenth
anniversary was observed. It was nn
important and eventful nlsht for two
reasons. It was an occasion that fit
tingly remembered the venerable citi
zen, Andrew Mitchell, nrter whom the
company was named, and it was the
means of revealing1 the Importance of
the factor that the company has been
since the organization. Secondly, it
was an occasion ot raie social enjoy
ment, an affair that bi ought together a
splendid gathering of farboudalc'H
sons, over 100'guests being present a1io
represented the professions anil the
highest type of citizenship that the city
can boast of. It is rare that there can
be found such a representation of the

As to the hospitality, it was of the
characteristic Mitchell company type.
This means It was warm-hearlod and
'generous, and that there were no fillls
in dealing it out to the guests. There
was no .stilting, no l'onnnlity: a le

and they mingled with an air of we-feel-quite-nt-home,

Memoiial park Is trying imrd to force
a smile of spiiug, though It Is not re
ceiving much assistance or encourage
ment from Old Sol. However, theie
is a suspicion 'of a smile In the big cli
cular bed at the eastern end of the
p.uk. The tulip bulbs that Parkkeeper
Kichurd Cdey planted a few days ago
have already pushed 'their heads above
ground. The moisture of the past few
days has greatly accelerated their
giowth and many of ilium are a
healthy and pleasing sight, With a few
rays of sum-hine, which are not far
off, they would begin to bud, and In a
few days more, a bed of color would
lellect the first smile of spiing. The
grass In the pari: grows higher each
day and some of the smaller bushes are
beginning to show buds.
ft wont be but a very few days now
until the park will be In the first stage
of the beauty with which It greets C.u
bondalians from the bright spring time
until the melancholy days of fall.
It would be quite timely now for
Common Councilman Whitfield to res
ui'pct the general sidewalk oidlnance
which he Introduced In council some
weeks ago, but which was not given
the reception to which it was certulnly
The backwardness of Carbondule In
the matter of sidewalks Is so patent
that it would be more humorous than
sensible to debate upon tho truth of
such a condltloif. While a good deal
was done last year by City Knglneer
Kupp In compelling property owners
to lay sidewalks, over a mile of flag
Ing being laid, he was not empoweied
to enfoi co the genet ul carrying out of
these Improvements, Improvements
that are u crying necessity. Theie was
needed a general ordinance, like the ono
prepared and Introduced by Mr, Whlt
lleld, but later uneeririonlously set
aside, Hut why this attitude towards
such mi Important and leasonablo
meusure no one could or can appuient
The ordinance Is far from being un
reasonable. It piovldes that side
walks be laid on all streets of the city,
the size of the Hug In different localities
being specified, where the grade 1ms
been established and accepted by tho
city, Mr. Smith cannot go ahead and
lay sidewalk in front of his property,
while his neighbor contents himself
with u mud hole, The reform must
be consistent, If theie Is an ungraded
stieet, tho propuity owneis should peti
tion councils to have the thoroughfare
graded. After the grade has been ac
cepted by the city, It Is obligatory upon
the property owneis to sjdewalk the
street. Hut no step can be taken until
the property owners, that Is a majority
of them, have sxpressed their willing
ness. It is plain, therefoie, that theio
Is nothing wiong about tho measure,
It simply paves the way for a general
carrying nit out of an Impiovemcnt
that Is one jf the biggest factors In a
city's grogress. Without well-paved,
well lighted and well hept streets, no
city ,can inove forward, but without
iVopi, It can easily enough retrograde,
The Tribune heartily commends Mr.
Whitfield's measure to the new coun
cils, both nt the behest I of Its own
judgment und f.f numeious property
owners who appreciate the need of
such an ordinance.

Auxious thoughts sometimes perplex
the wife who sees maternity before her.
If she is treading an untried path, she

of her suffering,
There is no cuise for anxiety for those
prospective mothers who use Dr, Pierce's
b'avorite Prescription. It trantjuilies
the nerves, encourages the appetite, in
duces refreshing sleep and produces
mental cheerfulness as well as physical

The bride was gowned In a beautiful

wheie a. lecoption was given to near
relatives and friends. A large circle
of friends will extend' heartiest good

circle of the young people were gather

couple us they arrived, and shower
them most bountifully with lice as they

The reunion or Mr. and Mrs. John

out of the three cases against Mc

criminal court yesterday.
When the cases were called, in all ot
which Mrs. McGowan would have to
appear against her husband to serious
ly accuse him, It was announced to
Judge Edwards that the couple were
now re-united and seemingly forgetful
of those happenings. When it was

Mrs. McGowan had no Intention to

that the prosecution of the cases rested
largely with the constable. He appre?
