The number of calls have been almost too great to calculate the number and for this reason, It is evident that tbe subject Is very popular throughout the town / Tbe only solution to the problem, the Mayor states, Is to ask those who have chickens to keep them shut up and he believes that no further arguments or ed to In the right manner and that further arguments or corn- complaints will arise Tbe County commissioners at Elyrla opened bids for the repairing ot the Milan avenue bridge Tuesday afternoon.
