Paola will soon be rid of tramps. The rock pile of the city is in operation. There is a big pile of rocks on the city lots. Officers are going to pick up all vagrants and give them a chance to work on the rock pile for a meal. Wednesday there was a variation and the vagrants were put to work unloading and spreading cinders on the road to the waterworks. As the word gets passed from town to town by tramps there will be a disposition to cut Paola from the visiting list.
