A Municipal Report is a short story by O. Henry, also known as William Sydney Porter. The story was first published in 1906 and it is set in a small town in the United States. The story follows the life of a man named Uncle Bill, who is the town's drunkard and a general nuisance to the community. Despite his flaws, Uncle Bill is a beloved member of the town, and the story explores the complex relationship between Uncle Bill and the townspeople.
The story begins with a description of the town and its people, who are described as being "hardy, honest, and law-abiding." Despite this, the town is plagued by a number of problems, including a lack of economic development and a high crime rate. The town council decides to hire a new town marshal, and they hope that he will be able to solve these problems and bring prosperity to the town.
The town marshal is a man named Tom Griffin, who is described as being "a man of action" and "a good man." Tom Griffin quickly sets to work, tackling the town's problems with determination and energy. He begins by cleaning up the streets, cracking down on crime, and encouraging economic development.
Despite his efforts, Tom Griffin faces resistance from some members of the community, including Uncle Bill. Uncle Bill is a well-known drunkard and troublemaker, and he is not happy about the changes that Tom Griffin is bringing to the town. He sees Tom Griffin's efforts as an attack on his way of life, and he becomes increasingly resentful of the new town marshal.
Despite this, Uncle Bill is a beloved member of the community, and many people are willing to overlook his flaws. He is seen as a harmless old man who is simply in need of a little bit of help and understanding. The town council members, in particular, are sympathetic towards Uncle Bill, and they try to help him in any way they can.
As the story comes to a close, Tom Griffin's efforts begin to pay off, and the town begins to prosper. Despite this, Uncle Bill remains unhappy, and he continues to drink and cause trouble. However, in the end, the town council decides to give Uncle Bill a job as a crossing guard, hoping that this will give him some purpose and help him turn his life around.
In conclusion, A Municipal Report is a poignant and thought-provoking story that explores the complex relationship between an individual and his community. It highlights the importance of understanding and compassion, and it shows how even the most troubled members of a community can be helped if given the right support.

As the doctor leaves, the narrator overhears Uncle Caesar talking to Azalea. The narrator goes back to the hotel and decides to wire the magazine. After she had signed the contract at eight cents per word she grew still paler and began to slip out of her chair.
She is thin and frail, already white-haired at fifty, but at the same time she has the air of a queen. Here ends all of the story as far as I can testify as a witness. It was old, but very clean. What did the noisiest project in the world - I mean the building of the Tower of Bable - result in finally? I would have paid gladly for the drinks, hoping, thereby, to escape another; but he was one of those despicable, roaring, advertising bibbers who must have brass bands and fireworks attend upon every cent that they waste in their follies. Here I first saw Major by misplaced courtesy Wentworth Caswell.
I heard one man say to a group of listeners: "In my opinion, gentlemen, Caswell was murdered by some of these no-account niggers for his money. The vehicle was drawn by beasts of a bygone era and driven by something dark and emancipated. At about six o'clock I went out for a stroll. Le faltaba el ángulo superior derecho y se había partido por la mitad, pero vuelto a unir. Instead of having picked up a greenhorn, ignorant of rates, he had come upon an inheritance. Ahora no se los esijo, señó, ahora que sé de dónde e usté.
But we don't seem to be able to hit upon any means of throwing him out legally. Una vez Caswell hubo agotado su última descarga en Appomatox, mis esperanzas renacieron. And when I had paid for that I took leave of him brusquely; for I wanted no more of him. Azalea Adair whispered a soft apology and went to answer the caller. Azalea Adair and I had conversation, a little of which will be repeated to you.
They is somethin' sharp in the toes for a Southern gen'l'man to wear. The narrator leaves the city the following morning. When he fired the last one at Appomattox I began to hope. The drizzle and the monotony of a dreary, eventless Southern town had made me tired and listless. Azalea gently but sincerely disagrees and suggests that it is in the quiet places that things do happen. She was exquisite, she was a valuable discovery. Do you see those hills over there? Only it's a lonesome kind of part of town and few folks ever has business out there.
They are the Southerners of the West. He is so enchanted that he is unable to discuss something as pedantic as a contract.

Pero antes de obtener mi liberación él se ocupó de alardear sobre unas rentas que recibía su esposa, y de mostrar un puñado de monedas de plata. Al parecer nos hemos quedado sin té —me explicó. .

Hasta ahí, en mi opinión, no es necesaria refutación alguna. But in my hotel a surprise awaited me. And then I went in and concluded business negotiations with our contributor.
