Thor<> will h<-' no shooting now for the ht rept until Koveniher in. date the quail sen.'^on opens not close for a month. Prajitie chickens have not Ueon at all ph-utiful this season.

Continued cold weathor will jhring the larger ducks down(fiom Tlif lorth. making huiiilng mueli hoter. The elly council met in rejMilar ss Inn last night and disposed of a small budget of business. No matters of unusual importance were up for consideration, the now vehicle tax and the plan to sav<t the gas helug the most important matters taken up. The same cild (piesljon of allowing property owners lo move siilowalks to the property line in individual blocks came up and was dispose*! <\f • in the same old way. rouncllmen declare that they will not grant such petitions where it will cause a jog I in the street. Tax .Automobiles. If you own ait automobile, > a- carriage or a vehicle of any kind, this luxury will probably cost you something in the future. The extra cost will come in the way of a "vehici" tax." an ordinance providing for the same beine now under consideration hy the license committee of the city council. "These vehicles arc having the use of our paved streets and excellent thoruglifares and 1 believe that the owners should pay something toward Ihelr maintenance," Councilman C. B. Core said. In bringing the matter to the attention of the council. "I think that a $10 yearly tax on automobile owners and other vehicles at a prorortionato ratio would be nliout riglit." The council discus.sod the m:itt <Manil U was finally referred lo the li- eaiisD committee with the city attorney." •Vn ordinance wi'I jirobably he drawn and submit ted to the council. Save the Gas. "Please he more saving with your gas." This is the plea of tl'c city council to gas consunuMs. It is a well known fact that thousands of gas consumers burn lights eoniiunally and that only when manlhs iireai> and it is necessary to put on ni'W ones Is the light turned out. With a half do/en lights l'urn.>d twenty-four hotirs a day tioe<!i .ss |y. in adtlition to stoves in every home, there is a perceplib't> drain on tlu- gas supply and the council is voitig to make an effort lo persuade the peoide to be more .savin::. To Ithis end the gas superintendent has boon iustruct- e<l to do what he caii to see that gas lighu are turned out during iht; day. Free Water and Gas. Free water and gas for a term of one year has been granted lo the Young Womon'.s Christian As.socia- lion by tin? city council. A petition asking that this action be taken was liresented to the city council • last nigK and acted uiion favorably. The y. W. C. .\- is comparatively a new organization in lola and has not had time to get on a basis which will permit it supporting it.self. Headquarters are maintained on South Washington ave.. and (liis with the equipment necessary for such aii or- panlzation makes an expense which the Y. \V. C. A. at present is only able to bear. The assistance of the city council in reducing expenses will be heartily appreciated. Meters for Schools. Members on tiie city council last night inilulged in a discussion of the time honored proposition to ptit the public school buildings of the city on a meter. The councilmen seemed to feel that the city and Tlie schools would be better off by such an arrangement, li would protect the city, they say, and fCause the schools to be more economical with the gas. Action on the proposition was fin- a'l.v deferred to a later meeting. Fell From Load of Hay. Some time ago. .lohn Gregg, a far- n^er, was driving into town on a load of hay on the State street ro.nd. His wasron was overturned and his hay spilled and he was toppled to the ground. No very serious injuries resulted btjt Ml*. CvcfZi wants the city to pav him .somethln?. The claim was discussed some last night but no action was taken. Sidewalk Petitions. Several |>otitioi:s r^idewalks wore presented to the cotincil last nigl't. amoue them were ono for a walk on north Walnut with a bridge crossing Coon Creek and one for a walk on the east side of north Second from Irwin to Monroe and one for a walk on Sycamore from Madi son avenue to Sycamore. These were referred to the street and alley committee. A petition from the property owners in block 92 on Washington avenue asking that they be permitted to move their sidewalks out to property line was ignored. This was done for the reason that only the property owners in that one block, memhers of the council said, were willing to move out If the owners ija block 92 were permitted to move tiielr PARKER WAS HELD •MIST ANSWFU TO Ml A IK.'K OF .MIHDKR OF I'FARL I»F\KS0\.
