Hoth plays are new and should draw a good house. —In some citifis of the size of Sterling, a man is licensed to go from build- Ing to building and collect the waste phper, which he can dispose of at the paper mills or junk shops. This renders it unnecessary for people to throw their waste paper on the streets or to burn it there, to which there are many objections. This is a matter for the council to consider, as many persons have spoken of it. A way should also be provided for residents to dispose of their dead leaves aud yard rakings. other than burning them, which is a nuisance to neighbors, especially tuoae with weak lungs. —The committee who were appointed to go to Clinton to investigate the milter ot the proposition by a manufacturer there, to locate his establishment in Sterling, have performed their duty and desire to'state to the public that a meeting will be held this evening at the council room, at which •arance of Third street.
