THOSE STATIONS It seems that the county authorities are not disposed to help us build qur comfort stations unless we keep them down to a very simple proposition. We have decided to eliminate the bathtubs which the designers had provided, and, if we are to receive any county funds, the shower - baths may have to go also, In taking that position, the county commissioners probably , reflect the sentiment of pepple in the rural dis - tricts. Perhaps a good many persons In the city are similarly inclined to object, to what they might term as unnecessary adjuncts. No one will approve of extrava - ganre in connection with the pro - 6r posed station same time, in within bounds, stations. At the our efforts to keep we need not become parsimonious, nor go to the other extreme of building too small. These stations are not for a day nor a week. They must be planned and constructed for future requirements, and of such proportions that additional conveniences can be provided as the growth of the city requires. Objections should not come from the rural districts, because to a great extent they are being projected for the comfort and convenience of these very people. In other cities where comion stations exist, they are largely patronized by out - of - town visitors, transients who come to the city for the day on a shopping tour. The News - Times has for a long time advocated stations of thisfsort. They need not be elaborate nor costly. Neither should they he dingy and inadequate. Our comfort stations must be more than a hole in the ground
