His health had been failing for many months. He was a former with everything else going up in price that the city water- works stands to run at a loss unless an increase is made in water rates," states Mayor Fred Froehlich. "Furthermore, says the mayor, "it is as much of a business proposition as any other enterprise and should be look- ed at in that light." Water bills are payable each quarter, and residents will find that the increase will not be a financial burden. An ordinance was passed and approved at the June meeting of the city council, and the follow- ing rates will go into effect: 3.000 gallons--J2.25. 3,000 to 7,000 gallons---6c per 100 gallons. 7,000 to 17,000 gallons---5c per 100 gallons. 17,000 gallons or more--2c per 100 gallons. LAKE FORK TO HOLD ELECTION JULY/' 12 TO VOTE ON MORE LEVY The voters of Lake Fork town- ship will have the opportunity of voting Thursday, July 12 on a "Yes" or "No" proposition to increase their road and bridge levy. Highway commissioner Otis G. Howe states that the present 12c per $100 valuation has been in force for the past 50 years, but due to the increase in the cost of labor and materials an in- crease in the levy must be made if adequate roads are to be maintained. He also stated that the bridges of the township are in bad shape and the machinery obsolete, so if the residents of the townshin wish good roads -- t I they are going to have to get ou and vote favorably, or be stuck in the mud. -- Buy U.

L ROTHW[ ESTATE BROKER LL Mount Pulaski Theater, Sunday and Monday, July 8 and 9, may not be the best dressed actor in the business---but he's certain- ly the best undressed.
