Aldermen Butler, Dlvver, Oakley, Joseph
Murray, Holland and Rinckhoff were seated
in tho prlvatb room of tho Board discussing
tho tariff (inostion, when Alderman Butlor,
the popular representative of tho Fourteenth

" Did any of you over sco a plko ?"
Thero was silcnco for a fow moments,

"I never," contiuued Oakloy, "think of a

a lmndlo on it as long oh a lingbtatl, and tho
Bpear on tho top is as HLurp us n knife. That

Tho groat need among the little invalids

more than half way round the baby, but- she
