A large and appreciative audience of mui»ic»lo7erR greeted the Griffins last evening at the Baptist church where they gave a concert under the auspices of the Klng'i Daughters of the Episcopal church. The artists were Mrs. Minnie Fish Griffin, late prima donna with the Theodore Thomas orchestra, and Bennett Griffin violinist, late of tho Berlin conservatory of music. That the audience was highly pleased with the performance of both was shown by the liberal applause, both tho singer and the violinist being frequently encored.

The following le a recapitulation of the report for March submitted by City Clerk J. B.

DutHtimae are not a necessity and they should not exist. It costs us no mor« to sell $25,OOO per month than $5,000 per month. But the tnore we sell the cheaper we can sell; the less we have to figure on the dollar for cost. That's the secret of success of large Deparment Stores in the cities and that's why we can afford to sell so cheap.

If you are Interested in cheap goodr, read Otto'* advertisement The bridge that has fona - score" «£ years connected the West "Side with the city proper at Market street orgc Eel river, baa been bar red-to tho pub- • lie. It was nailed up last night. The bridge examiner and tester' .'of iron-work, H. F. Coleman, -has paateiS. upon tho old structure and in bic jugdzaent has condemned It as unsafe and unequal to the traffic that bag for' many years past flowed ,u> and .fro- over its creaking, vibrating frame, Mr. Coleman'n report oc the condition of the bridge was read at the meeting of the council Isel night, nal 1 a resolution wins at OD->e passed or-- dering the street commissioner --to close tho causeway to traffic. , It Is probable that the county com- mieeiooorB will meet In special -tec- sion to take action without delay, tr the matter of providing a new OHtipe, which ie to all appearances a pfO'.-«-.lty. Mr. Coleman said In his rep'i t ;tiit u those who built the Market tt.uo- Sviia twenty years ago could not hau-e »a- tloipated such a thing as an electric motor car passing over the fet-uctuce, It wae a good bridge when put up. Tbn cars that whiz over the unstable bridge weigh six tons each. The trallorc weigh still more. j^The floor -o( the bridge le TO»K and sagging. -The movement of a heavy load- >over the bridge causes horizontal and- verttatl vibrations that each time weakec .Ui£ structure. Tho bridge is dangerooe., To allow traffic to go ever the sbaluK affair is to Invite an accident. There, is no room, as the bridge stands, fcr additional trufsee to give stiffness to the structure. Timber braces might be added, but they would have to extend from top to bottom of the frame, through the foot paths. A new floor would in some degree, with the aid of new and heavier iron rods, allay tbe vibration of the two middle epaoe. The bridge could not be grea«l^ strengthened without it be lowered to it» old level. At present its capscUr IB tbout 800 pounds a foot run, and \rt repairing as above, with addition*:;: repairs to the atone abaltmente, the capacity could be raised to 1.000 or 1,100 pounds a foot run. To so make over ihe bridge woufifc involve an expense. 1! it was required that the causeway be kept open t traffic during the progress of the work, of $7.000. In any event the otuE. would be $6 000, and the aged bridge coul<l cot tben be guaranteed to serve more than three years.
