Our post is now in excellent shape with a home all o! its own. There has been a little growling some times, by some people, about the expenses of ourcityand the extra vaganee of our council. But a person will have to travel far and wlde before flnding another city the size of Anu Arbor whoi-e aftairs are conductcd so reasonably, or whose expenses are so small comparativey, as right here in Ann Aihor. Thls city bas all the luxuries of electric ligbt and water works, and yet has not a cent's worth of debt. Her streets are cept clean and neat, the gravel bed on which they He doing away with the necessity of paving, and the rolling character of the land on which the city is built carrying off all the rainfall and water. Ann Arbor is certainly favored as few citips are. Her entire tar of $11.00 on a 1 1,000 is not as much as many cities pay tbr their city tax alone.

Though the municipal aulhorltie Tai! todo their duty, the student body hns no riglit to iake the luw Into lts own Hands.- Argonuut. Never a thing yet happened but what there was some one to shift the bliimeon to. And it is quite the thlng in this city to kick at the council fer evety mtehsp of whatevcr nature and kind. If an election fight occurs, "the municipal authorlties fail to do their duty." If a man falls down on an icy walk and damages his anatomy the oommon council Is to blamc.and hestralghtway sends in a.bill of $000 damages for them to pay. If a burglary is committed, If a man becomes a criminal, or a saloon is catiiiht open after hours, the council or municipal authoritles are "knocked intoacocked bat," metaphorlcally speaking, by the words of tlie fault flnders. But how many ol these men who throw the burdens of all ill deeds on to the city fatbers - a body of men who serve tbe people without compensatlon - ever give a member of the council thelr encouragement In doing rigbt y If a wrong step is taken they are quick to condemn, but bow many are willing to give credit for the many good thlngs done?
