Augusta's Retail Merchants Association has unanimously decided to decorate Broad Street with colored lights again this year.
The decision was made at a meeting yesterday attended by an enthusiastic group of Broad Street merchants.
"Old Man Gloom has gone," said W.H. Black, manager of J.C. Penney & Co. "We need $1,000 from the merchants, and those who attended the meeting said positively that enough contributions would be made to sponsor the decoration program."

Hard water leaves its mark on shower walls and glass shower enclosures in the form of crusty little white lime deposits that sometimes seem as though they're going to be impossible to remove.
Sodium carbonate is the chemical you'll want to use. It's the base for many cleaners and is the primary ingredient in washing soda.
If a strong solution of sodium carbonate doesn't do the trick, try a squirt of liquid toilet-bowl cleaner. Bowl cleaners are strong, dangerous chemicals, so use them with eye-and-skin protection and plenty of ventilation.
When the water stains are gone, apply a coat of car wax to all the surfaces in the shower. Doing so will make cleaning a breeze the next time.
