HELP FOR ASSESSORS.
A communication was received from
the board of city assessors asking for
$500 for clerk hire. They explained
that In consequence of the special city
assessment having been nullified by
court a new assessment is necessary.
To make the new assessment without

ance it will be possible to complete the
work in thirty days.

standing that the city Is to reimburse
the company for all but Its share of
the cost, at any time the city may
see fit to adopt It as a public sewer.
There was some opposition to the
measure and it went to committee.

'to connect his property with the Brom

committee's recommendation and voted
the Job to Mulligan,
Last nlcht select council following
the advice of Its sewers and drains
committee refused to concur In the ac
tion of the Iqwer branch and decided In

didn't have anything else to do they
practiced elocution nnd oratory for an
hour. Finally a motion wns made to
refer the matter to a conference com
mittee. It was lost on the following

Wns Considered by Miss Parloa la Her
Talk in the Y. M. C. A. Hall Ycs
Miss Parloa's lecture yesterday after
noon at the Young Men's Christian As
sociation hall wns on "Tho Character
istics of French Cooking." There wna
a irood attendance of ladles and the
lecture proved one of the best of tho
course. Miss Parloa said that tho
French divide their cooking Into three
clnsscs: household or simple, Bour
geois" or mlddlu-clat' nnd Ia Grand
Cuisine cookery. B'lklng, wasting and
broiling me hardly-known In the kitch
en nl the working people. Soup and
haricot are their most substantial dish
es and bread Is In truth Tno Staff of
Life to all classes and It Is sold under
"Bourgeois or mlddle-clas cooking,"
mid Mlfca Parloa, "Is probably the beat
In the world." The dally table of tho
Frartth Is blmple nnd hglenle; the
home cooking Is simple rather than
elaborate, but th'e housekeeper takes
Inilnltt pains with the details of tho
simplest dish. Miss Parloa explained
this trait ns a patt of Inheritance.
Good cooking mxins, not fancy dishes,
but such a preparation of any dish
that it will bo ravory, digestable and
with the least possible waste. This
shou'd bo the definition In every na
tionality. National dishes may vary but the
principle of good cooking remains the
same In tho four corners of tho earth.
Miss Parloa then spoke in detail of the
facts, making the Interesting statement
that the reason Frnch dishes appear
so fussy and elaborate is because the
French housekeeper in. her effort to be
economical placea a sreat variety of
food that might be called refuse Into
The details of Miss Parloa's lecture
consisted of an analyzatlon of bev
eral dishes which' are popular with
the French. It wns a very helpful
lecture. The ninth lecture will be on
the subject: "The Selection and Caro
of Vegetables nnd Gtoceils" and will
be delivered Saturday afternoon.
SUIT AGAINST CITY OF SCRANTON
Mrs. Jlnry Unrrctt Wants rive Thous
nnd Dollars Dnmngcx.
Mrs. Marv Barrett, through Attor
neys I. H. Burns and Cawiey & Shean,
began an action In trespass yesterday
against the city of Scranton to recover
$5,000 damages. "
Mrs. Barrett ov is a lot on Carbon
street, the rear p t of which abutted
on the stream w),.ch is now the trunk
sewer of the Fourth district. When
this sewer was constructed In 1S88 Mrs.
Barrett alleges that her property was
Injured because the surface water
from her own and adjoining lots, which
had pi lor to that time passed Into
the brook, now lodge on her land.
In 1892, after a severe storm, the sew
er became choked and on account of Its
alleged faulty construction flooded her
house, greatly Injured the foundation
and washed away the sidewalk. For
the damaee done to her by means of
this sewer she wants compensation.
THE PEOPLE SATISFIED.
Tho Dig Bargains Secured nt Dunn's
One of the most successful sales ever
inaugurated in Scranton is Dunn's big

diately after Mr. Dunn's loss was ad
Justed he had all th goods removed
from his store to the Wyoming. There
were thousands of dollars worth of
hats and furnishings that were just as
good as when they left the factory.
Despite this, Mr. Dunn cut the price on
every article In the store, It Is sfe to
say, at least B0 per cent. The pnoplo
who attended the sale recognized this,
and In consequence crowds were In at
tendance dally. It will, therefore, be
of Interest to the public to read Mr,
