It is not known whether or not the
city will attempt to make valid the
ordinance covering the construction of
buildings within the business district
of Temple. The next meeting of the
city council will be held Monday af-
ternoon at 5 o'cIock at which time

In addition to plenty of fresh air

ing the past, warrants the fullest inves-
tigation possible by every sufferer.

two members of the jury yesterday.
"We all agreed that the ordinance
adopted by the council had been vio-
lated but we also believed that the law
had never been published for ten days
in accordance with the charter, so
there was nothing else for us to do but
to turn Mayor Watters loose.
"As we understand the situation
there Is absolutely no fire ordinance
in the city of Temple at present anl
almost any kind of wooden structure
may be built within the commonly
known fire limits without fear of
prosecution and conviction," remark-
ed a prominent real estate dealer in
discussing the outcome of the trial
Wednesday which resulted in a ver-
dict of "not guilty of violating- any
| city ordinance", being recorded in the
complaint against Mayor Watters.

Temple's Share of $600,000 Itond Issue
Will Re Known by That Time—Im-
proved Streets Mot Selected Yet.
"V. iien Temple's part of the bond
issue Is determined then will the
streets to be Improved be designated,"
declared a member of the citizens'
"There has been no definite proce-
dure agreed on In the selection of
streets to be improved but to a great
extent the amount of traffic and wil-
lingness of property owners along tho
street to Install curbs and gutters will
be considered In the selection.
"It is felt that when the time comes
tho citizens' committee will hold sev-
eral mass meetings at which time del-
egations from different streets may
appear and present their claims."
No streets have been designated so
far with the exception of those that
will connect with the country roads.
This agreement was made before the
bonds were voted, that all streots
forming a p rt of the highway sys-
tem over which the country people
could get to town should be Improved
from the public square In Temple to a
connecting point with the different
roads at the city limits.
Just what part of the $600,000 bond
issue will bo available for street Im-
provements should be made public
some time after June 15, when bids
for the construction of the country
roads will be opened at Belton.
The bids will bq let on a unit basis,

Danger of Rabies In Warm Weather
Is Increased — Officer Huckabee
Killed Two Dogs Yesterday.
Officer Sam Huckabee Is conduct-
ing a spirited campaign against the
canine population of Temple and dur-
ing the past six weeks has extermi-
nated eighty-nine dogs that showed
signs of rabies or were acting queorly.
Yesterday two dogs were killed by
the officer on the south side.
The south side seems to be the
stamping ground for most of the dogs
as ninety per cent of the animals
killed have been found wandering
c.round In that section of the city. In
almost every instance the dogs were
not tagged with the license Issued by
tho city, although several of them
were valuable animals, but no doubt
were owned by citizens who were not
particular whether or not the dogs
were well cared for.
No abatement Is expected In the
killing; of the animals as with warmer
weather aproaching the danger from
rabies Increases. Several children
have been bitten by mad dogs this
