The ordinance will be taken up again at the meeting on Monday evening for . revision and Its second reading and passage, with the likelihood that considerable cuts will be made In the various amounts appropriated. The ordinance when finally passed will be published. Program of Economy. The new chairman of the finance committee, Aid. Dempsey, addressed the council at some length with re gard to the financial status of the city and said that it would be necessary to cut appropriations for all depart nients as close as possible. The total revenue for the city to. be expected would not be, stated the chairman, over $76,000, and the city has got to live for the coming year within that sum. The city borrows of the banks, Jn anticipation , of Us share of taxes paid over by the county treasurer, up to seventy -five per cent of the tax levy for municipal purposes, which has beeB' somewhat exceeded during the current year. It will be necessary, stated the chairman, to begin : next Monday borrowing In anticipation of the taxes to be paid In a year rrom this spring. There is some $60,000 still to come in from the county treasurer on this spring's payment of. taxes to take up warrants already issued, which are outstanding in the amount of $67,000 -for money borrowed. Any idea that the city could go Into any special Improvement projects such as boulevard Hghts etc., was not to be entertained, however much this might be desired Necessity for the strict est economy in city expenditures and cuts in expense where possible exists and there is no way to get away from It, stated the chairman. Chairman Dempsey explained that Including Items In the appropriation ordinance did not necessary mean that they were to be expended. About The Birds The days of late April and early May are full of interest to the lover of birds, so many new birds are arriv- and wrens, about our city this year. Some of the birds, however, do not occupy bird houses but build their nests In the shrubs, in the trees and some in the grasses on the ground. The different species use various klnds of nesting material In the construction of their nests and generally build their homes where they can find the I . i material for their particular kind of nest. . It Is almost impossible for them to find the suitable material on well kept lawns so if we are thoughtful enough to put out nesting material for the little strangers, such as bits of string, rags, small twigs, lawn clippings, etc., they will be quick to avail themselves of these "house furnishings." Some of the birds which we may expect to partake pf our hospitality are the robins, catbirds, orioles, chipping? sparrows phoebes, rose-breasted grosbeaks apd tanagers.

TRIGIE11L BE "Persons wishing to donate shrubs or perennials to the Woman's club for beautifying triangle at the south end of State street. Call maln-448, or Blue-839." The above Is really self-explanatory and announces that the Wpman's club proposes to prevent the triangle from growing up to weeds and presenting an eye-sore to people entering or leaving the city by Grant highway The triangle referred to is located at the south end of state street whtsre the Grant highway cement roadway swings off toward Cherry Valley The eement navine. the east and west road, and the turn from Grant to take the road td the east form a triangle of open ground.

The matter was discussed at the recent meeting of the Chamber of Commerce when the question of means, for, .beatfc tifying the city was up for discussion, and now the Woman's club is taking active steps to make it a spot of beauty and prevent its becoming a waste place on the edge of the city, the first to greet the eye of the visitor or the last to leave an impression as he departs from the city.

A bill reported to the house by Congressman Fuller's committee on invalid pensions providing for ' tho monthly payment of pensions has passed both the house and senate and has been signed by President ' Harding. The new law takes effect September 1st. Heretofore pensioners of the Civil and Spanish-American wars have been "compelled r to wait three months for their pension vouchers while all World war payments have been made monthly. The monthly payment bill was passed by the house in June, 1921, and has been delayed on the senate side. Its long delay after passage by the house Is a fair example of the senate habit of moving at a slow pace.
