The outcome of tho now survey for tho north side city sower is a complete change of course. Instead of running down tho ravine by tho Chubb home It will now turn west just north of D. A. Haeeard's place, cut through tho old nark In the gravel drive-way on the Hamilton lots, cross Thorington in front of E. V. Swotting's, run west to tho next street west of Thorington, and then go down that directly north to the river. Tho route is much more expensive, as the cut aorora the park and Thorington street will be between 20 and 30 feet deep. But tho council says that enough taps are assured to cover the extra cost, all Thorington agreeing to use the sewer, J M. Cowan has been chosen to over- see'the work, which Is already[begun. The estimated cost Is $1,500. Nothing Is planned as yet for a sewer on the south side ot town. i NOW TOE OHMBANTHEMUM. Tomorrow mid Friday Will Witness AlKOim-s Product for 181)7.

Barton has Whittemore, Garfleld, Biverdale, Sherman, LuVerne and Prairie. „ „ Weisbrod has Eagle, Swea, Seneca, Fenton, Lotts Creek, and Burt. _ Burton has Grant, Hebron, Springfield, Ledyard, Hebron and Lincoln.
