We sell Ice Cream made from Pure Cream. Sliull They be owned by Individuals or by The ri»j, "Down In Main",'' AVun the the Village Event of the SeHHou nml Drew » One of the perplexing problems which confronts our village Hoard i* the question of ownership of the electric light meters. When the misters tirst voted to compel all patrons of the plant to use meters, thus doing away with the tin rate,there seemed to be 110 other thought thau th«t those who used the lights should pay lor their owu meters. Last February, just before the village electtou, the trustees reopened the subject aud to the surprise of many of our citi/ens voted to buy back the meters as fast as the current used would enable the village to do so. This actiou caused a storm of protest from those not using the lights as they claimed that they were thus Compelled to pay extra taxes without r - ceiving any return. When the new board assumed control of village affairs, at their first meeting in April, they passed a restlution appointing President Uibbs aud H. L. Muuson a committee to look up the question of who should legally owu the meters and voted that pending the report of this committee no "credit should be allowed ou electric light bills on meter account. This action leaving as it did the matter siill unsettled gave mauv consumers the excuse to refuse payment on bills due until final action was taken, aud thus failed to relieve the situatiou. Crowded House Itoth NIglits The four act comedy drama, "Down in Muitie," and the laughable farce, "Uncle Dick's Mistake," which were presented at the West Held Opera House ou Friday and Saturday evenings, May 19th and '20th, by the graduating class of litOo, was the best home taleut eu tertainment given in this village iu years. 1 VOMN CENTRAL L> I Ull O DRUGSTORE PHONE NO. 80 The farce "Uncle Dick's Mistake,'' opened the entertainment and was given by the following Women's Shirt Waist Suits.

At the meeting of last Friday the Board again tackled this problem and" the report of the committee was received, but failtd to throw the needed li>»lit upon the subject as they could find no parallel cases in'reviewing the court decisions. They therefore reported without recommendations.In the discussion which followed it was clearly the opinion of some of the trustees that it would be illegal for the corporation to go to the expeuse required to own the meters nuless it could be demonstrated that the commercial lighting was being conducted on a paying basis. There beiug no data at hand to adequately settle this question and as the opinions of our citizens aud of the trustees are at variance in this matter, it was urged by members of the board that an expert be secured who could satisfactorily answer this question. While definite action was not taken iu the matter of securing an expert, it is very likely that such action will be tskeu in the near future. Of Interest in the Medicinal Line.
