BIXUOLOU We're fed up on Government . regulations in Our Town, and it would take a Philadelphia lawyer to straighten out all the regulations, contra regulations, etc. Even the Income Tax Department can't answer all of the questions, and here we are enforcing another regulation," -one 'of our own; however, it's one that does not require the " analytical mind of a lawyer. So long as w have the power, and,-we still have "the power, e will not' allow that. a fur coat should cost you'more now . than it would have last season. .This, in spite of the fact that: .raw furs are greatly advanced in price over last season. What will happen when our present : low-priced stock is sold is another question, but right now ' you can 'save a most considerable amount and yet have a., good fur coat when you want at next Fall. t : . i - ' F.

'. .. . Taking his advice an Irish land lady . and her French-Canadian Senant ..went out and continued their verbal battle in the haU. The landlord wanted to raise the rent because of improvements. ' - ' "The sink needs fixing. , The toilet Is blocked. Now the sewer is blocked. It is not a nice place to raise children", said the tenant The landlady got in a counter- harraffe. No decision was reached ur the battle in the hallway but the ten ant won in the board room. "An increase was disallowed. , " : Another battle royal occurred between a male landlord and two married women. "He turned the electricity off at night ' He turns the hot water off all the time. We. can't even take a bath. He won't burn coal to beat the house. He went into my room and hit my little daughter1, said the tenants. "These are-all lies", the man retorted. The decision was: "You must heat the house properly and sup ply lights." , ; A sailor had a share in the night of verbal battles. He had rented a basement apartment that turned out to be a damp basement When the people upstairs wash, the water backs up in our' sink and we have to carry it out with buckets. He turned ' the cellar into what he called an apartment and rented it to me for more than he was renting the good apart ments upstairs", : charged the sailor. The tar got a reduction. A landlord brought a lawyer to talk for him. The lawyer objected when a , French" tenant had to have his brother speak for him, but his objection was over-ruled. It was another tenant victory. ' An involved case, in which all three parties were breaking , the law, came up over a lease which did not expire until after the basic period date. . It was smoothed out in a friendly manner. : - Twenty-five cases were decided during the sitting. Judge Daly and A. B. Ullett presided.
