Pepper In Hot Weather.
Now York Tribune.
Peppered dishes properly belong to summer
time. Strange as it may seem, currios and hot
dishes of all kinds are of a tropical or Indian
origin. Even the birds and animals of the
tropics use Chile peppers as articles of diet.
Under tho influence of hot weather the appe
tlto flags, and seems to need some such stimu
lus. It was Goldsmith who wrote;
For palates grown callous almost to disease,
Who peppers tho highest is sure to please.
Whether our palates are rendered callous by
warm weather or not, these peppered dishes
aro exceedingly acceptable to most people in

required, eighteen feet In lift, will sorvo tho
purpose well and hotter thnn high service
In conclusion I would state that this pro
posed sowcrago improvomont is in gonoral
modolod after tho London sowerago S38tcm,
which works admirably. Upon its ostabllsh
mont thoro It was followed by a great reduc
tion In tho death rato In tho low district. Its
main advantages may bo summed up as fol
lows: It would thoroughly and offccttvoly dis
pose of tho sowagoot tho city without detri
ment to Washington or tho neighboring city
of Alexandria. It would improvo tho sani
tary condition of Washington by carrying
away tho foul matter that atproscnt stagnates
In the largo sowers that penetrate to tho heart
of tho city. It would prevent tho deposition
of refuse on tho bottom ot tho river on tho
borders ot a city of a quarter of a million of
inhabitants, and its decomposition there and
on tho flats. It provides for tho utilization
of tho sowago for Irrigation and fertilizing
purposes on tho farm lands lying on the left
bank of tho river between Washington and
Fort Footo. It would provent damago to
property by tho overflow of tho river in tlmo
of hoavy rains and freshets ovor a largo sec
tion of the city. It would purify tho water of
the Potomac. It would enhance tho valuo of
proporty by making Washington a more de
sirable city to live in. It would sorvo to make
Washington tho model city of the world and
tho pride of a nation.
Now Class of Electric Bonds.
Thero arc now many indications that electric
railroading is about to undergo remarkable
developments. Hitherto electricity has been
used mainly for city and suburban traffic and
for comparatively short lines, but this restric
tion will no longer hold. The Pennsylvania
Railroad Company propose to run an electric
line from Jersey City to Newark, which will
bo of the greatest possible valuo In supple
menting their stoam service, and an electric
railway is projected to run from Ashevillo, to
Rutherford, N. C., a distance ot forty-ono
miles, the current for which will bo generated
by water power. In addition to these lines is
a proposed elevated electric railway between
Milwaukee and Chicago, on which it is In
tended to make tho trip in ono hour. As the
distance between tho two points is eighty-five
miles, this means a speed of about a mile an d
a half a minute. The company which is ex
ploiting this road Is sanguine of securing its
right of way on much lower terms than would
be possible for a steam road. Only twenty
five feet in width will be required against the
one hundred feet demn'ided by tho steam
traction. It is also clai .j ed that the surround
ing property will in no way bo depreciated, as
there will bo no smoke and, cinders, and as
tho tracks will bo elevated no danger to stock
or human life will be possible. It is not in
tended to carry freight; the traffic will be con
fined to passengers and mail and express mat
ter. -i '-
