A. S. Lyous,of Scio, in an interview with a representativo of the Washtenaw Evening Times on Tuesday said: "The streets of Aun Arbor are simph horrible to behold. I carne in frora Soio this morning and nowhere in the country did I find the roads in as poor condition as your streets are. Wny don't you pave your streets? Yon keep patching them np and patohing them op, and then have no streets wheu yon get throngh patching. Yon are Jjke the slow-go farmer and his oíd rúachine. He patches it frequeutly and when he gets through patching it he has an oíd machine and it is good for nothins. If he booght a new machine n the first place, he would have been 11 right. Juet so with your streets. : hear a good many farmers condemn he streets of Ann Arbor. The farmers are kicking and you can't afford to have them kick, hecause there are ther places than Ann Arbor for them o do their trading. " Mr. Lyons is not the only one who inds fanlt with the streets of Ann Arjor and yet there has been enough money spent on the streets of Ann Ar)or dnring the past 10 years to have ad many miles of first class paved tieets.
