A Gas Franchise it in highly desirable tluil Blythc- villu obtain gsJvlwth from the stand-. point of;.convenience and economy to householders and commercial users, and for the better opportunity which it will afford for industrial development. Fortunately the number of applicant's for a gas franchise here is such as -to indicate there is little doubt of gas _ ultimately being rmulc available. There remains the problem of selecting from among the applicants a concern that will give.tlie city the best possible in;service and rates. This 'latter is not lire simple matter •that it- may superficially appear. Installation of a gas plant or of natural gas service is a technical proposition, involving engineering details not readily understood by a layman. There is a wide variation in the heating and other^ qualities of. gas, and an equally wide variety of plants and Equipment. An adequate supply of gas of the proper quality for efficient domestic and industrial use, distributee] Builder an oven end sufficient pressure,' 1 -'arid sold at n rate that will, mean-a. s'aying to. small users .and an inducement : to industrial enterprises, is what we.-.^yantr"Thiit is:raUier'a lar^.e order, and can only be filled by giving the matter painstaking stiidy before-any franchise is awarded. .•Further than this : is the question of the'financial responsibility and Honest" intentions of'the concern which is to • ..receive t5w franchise;. There is no sense in-Blytlicville. awarding', another... franchise to a company that is riot able to "give this city gas service, or lias no desire, or intention of providing; such... service 1 but rnerely \\ahts.a'fnin'ctuxein' ". the hope of able to peddle'it at a profit to some other concern.. | It should be remembered that a franchise, once'it becomes effective, and tvhether it is by its. terms exclusive or not, will for all practical purposes shut out'all other gas concerns from this • field. Before we do-that we want lo % . make certain that the concern that receives the franchise is the one that can ' serve us best: "No Police Were Touched" Three new hrsullols were established In Bombay last week by followers ol St. Oandhl to care for bruised and wounded ncn-vlolenk demonstrators" of whom <Ially scon?s nre beaten by the police.

Fillmore. The way Mr. Coolidge and Mr. HoDVcr fell toward each olher was just too bad. Mr. C'colirtirc's Success "Cal had done belter'with Prosperity than tiny president- we ever had. He kept a firm grip on it and never let it get - away from him. Many of us had become just a litllq tired of Cal when the time came for him to turn Prosperity over to Herbert. I guess it was because we were all sure that Herbert would accelerate the pace and give us a bigger and better Prosperity than Cal's brand. "You might have thought that when Herbert- fumbled the punt and let Prosperity slip from his clutches Cal would have sneercc or at least snickered and reckoned that was none of his business, (hat would just show that, you line misjudged Cal. He has decided that It is up to him to point the way out of the wilderness. "Nobody ever said that Cal wa: dumb-and S3. you do not nolici him writing out the recipe for re covering Prosperity and sending i lo Mr. Hoover by mall, in which way it might get lost before it rui passed through the hands of all lh White House secretaries. "Cal just decided to wrile lh recipe in Ihc newspapers wher Herbert would never mi:* it nn even If he did it would be callc to Ills attention. Not only that h \yas willing to act as; sort of a na : ttouil cheer leader, for the president to pep up the drive for Pros-', .per;ty. which had been sagging for • so many months and so he is talking directly to the people and telling them what -to do. With the Sections coining on, Cal looks very much like tlie U. S. cavalry dashing up 'o rescue the paleface maiden from Ihc stake. "'My countrymen, it is time to stop criticizing 1 and quarreling and' start sympathizing and helping,' said Cal in his first appeal to the- nation and did you ^cver see anyone set a nobler example of sympathy and aid for.the.stricken as Cal lias been exteading to Herbert? "Cal can speak boldly. He even admits there has been some 'de- line in trade.' If he were ah offl- ial of the government he would ever dare .admit anything jOf the hid. He even is willing to con- ess that the president has. been cuing blanied for the 'decline' and irobably Herbert hasn't thanked ilm for that, but there is nothing Ike speaking out frankly and it n-obably is all for Herberts' own good. The Coolidgc. Ecclpe "It appears' that the Coplidge : recipe for coaxing Prosperity back nto camp is having faith in ourselves, fnsltng and .prayer, living in the things o[ the spirit; 'striving mightily for things that arc eternal,' sacrifice, buying goods and everybody who has any money paying up his store bills. "Cal says that if everybody who has a job aud some money would 'pay all their retail merchandise bills and in addition purchase what they need and can afford,' a sound commerce would be created. Of course this sounds as of Cal were doing a little dunning on the side for his old pal Frank Stearns, who owns that big department stqrc in Boston, but Herbert cannot expect to get all the bencfil out of Cal's writings and nobody denies lhat it is a fine feeling to get all your bills paid and to buy some more Ihuigs rx Sheriff W.

Afler working for his father, who was a miller, Howe went to Lowell to work in a cotton machinery manufactory. Two years later he lost his job on account of the financial panic, but got another in a machine shop in Boston. In 1845 he produced his sewing machine but, despite its obvious advantages, met with bitter opposition. For the nest nine years he was desperately poor. He made a trip to England in the hope of being able to interest .'capitalists. He was unsuccessful, befog obliged to sell the English rights to. the machine for 250 pounds. When he returned to this country he found that his patent had been infringed aud that many sew- iug machines were already in use He therefore began action to estab- lish his patent. After five years of litigation he won his case and thereafter was one of Ihe leading manufacturers in the United States. He shortly became a millionaire.' In 1867 he received the gold medal and the cross of the Legion of Honor at Paris. Shoe on Other Foot; Police Officer Jailed CHICAGO.
