The statement that $100,000 will be expended among the laboring men of this city proyiding the water works are put in this summer, is an erroneous one. It is merely a sort of buncombe. If the water works are put in there will be but a small portion of the money tbey cost expended here. All the pipec, and pumps and machinery will be brought frota the large eastern manufactories, all the works the same, and the same will be true of all the killed workmen. The only money wliich will inure to the benefit of Ann Arbor people in any way will bc the employment of the day laborers necded to dlg the ditches and haul the material. If there will be any more than this expended liere we thoulil like to have some one teil us what it will be for. We dou't like tospoil a pretty thing - on paper- but it is alwayg best to teil the truth and not exaggerate. If you want to deal with a strictly One Priced House, cali on the ïwo Sams. If you want a new suit from $5.00 to $25.00 cali un the Two Sams.
