All tho members of tho common coun
cil, except Mr, Olention, wore present
at their regular meeting on Monday
evening. Mr. Glcnnon, who has been
chairman of this body for several
terms, sent In his resignation, on ac
count of removal from the Fourth
word, which lie has long nnd ably rep
resented. Mr. McDonough, of the
Fourth ward, read the communication
and moved Its acceptance. He took
occasion to pay a high tribute to Mr.
Qlennon for his zeal during long yearn
of service as a councilman. A vote of
thanks was tendered him for long and
faithful service to the city. Tho South
"Washington street grnding ordinance,
after some forcible discussion, was
passed over the mayor' veto. Messrs.
McDonough and Devlne were the only
members who voted In the negative.
Tho ordinance providing for a special
license tax on transient venders nnd
peddlers, coming for Us first reading,
was voted down. It has been stated
that the ordinance, If passed, would be
FELL TOWNSHIP HALL BURNED.
On Monday evening, a little before
11 o'clock, tho Fell township munici
pal building was found to bo on fire.
Tho blaze was discovered on the
ground lloor of the building. The alarm
was quickly sounded and the Mitchell
Hose company responded nt once, but
before they arrived the building wns
almost entirely destroyed. A bucket
brigade was at once formed In order
to save, If possible, the adjacent build
ings, but It was not possible to get
much force for the stream of water.
Tho night proved to be calm, without
much wind, so that the row of com
pany buildings weru saved. The fire
appears to have been tho, work of an
incendiary, for no lire had been kindled
this season In the building nnd there
is no probability that it was accidental.
The building had an Insurance In the
Brldgott ngency for $1,&00, but the loss
will be much greater. Tho building
was erected at a cost of $1,700. The
furniture was also destroyed and some
valuable papers belonging to the super
visors and to Justice Glenn.
A number of friends surprised Mr.
nnd Mrs. T. L. Vail at their home on
Lincoln avenue, on Monday evening.
The occasion was tho birthday of Mrs.
Vail. The house 'was given up to the

Vail as a token of esteem from her

How its lllrulbtllty WnR Turned to
Account by a Malinger of n Country
From tho Sun,
Every compositor who ever put In
type any of Horace Greeley's copy will
certify to tho fact that his hnndwrlt
Ing was almost Illegible. It was tho
despair of the composing room, and
oven Greeley himself couldn't always
decipher It. A man who was many
yearn ago president of the Oswego
County Agricultural association, snld
several daya ago that he had good
reason on one occasion to be thankful
that Mr. Greeley's writing was hard to
decipher. This fact Hecured for him
a. star attraction at the fair which uu
could not have obtained otherwise.
The association of which ho was presi
dent mudo a great effort ench year to
outdo rival associations In Its fair, and
ono of Its regular attractions was a
distinguished speaker who delivered
an address to the crowd on any sub
ject, that he might select.
"When I was made president," snld
the ex-olllcer of the association, "I was
young and ambitious. I wanted to
give tho best fair that ever had been
held at Oswego Falls, and 1 was will
ing to work hard to accomplish such a
result. Long beforehand I stirred up
the farmers to raise big squashes and
pumpkins, and I prepared tv good
schedule of horso rnces. I secured a
man to make a balloon nscentlon, and
nil that was lacking In my programme
wns the speaker. At that time Mr.
Greeley was the most conspicuous
man in tho United States. Wo all
wanted to see him and hear him
speak. He was a very busy nian.how
ever, and I knew that we had about
ono chance In ten of securing hlni. I
determined to take that chance. After
much preliminary thought and many
consultations with others, I prepared
and sent to him a very creditable In
vitation to attend our fair nnd deliver
an nddreFH on any subject that he
chose. I assured him that ho would
find only friends In his audience, and
I said that -f had long looked for
such nn opportunity to hear him. Two
days later tho village postmaster told
mo that he had a letter that he
thought wos nddressed to me. I hnd
heard a. good deal about Greeley's
handwriting, nnd 1 knew nt once that
this was my reply from Mr. Greeley.
When I opened the envelop I found
a sheet of paper on which were Irregu
lar pcmwls that. I couldn't decipher.
With several of my friends I puzzled
over It a long time, but I couldn't read
It. I remembered that the editor of
our paper had at one time be?n famil
iar with Mr. Greeley's handwriting,
nnd I took the letter to him. He was a
little out of practice, but ho deciphered
It nfter half nn houh's examination.
Mr. Greeley regrettel that ho was un
able to accept our Invitation. That
was a great disappointment to me.
I thought It over, and suddenly It
dawned on me Uint there was Just a
chance that I might by strategy get
Mr. Greeley to Oswego Falls after all.
I sent him another letter that must
have staggerPil hlni. Mr. Greeley wns
well aware of the fact that his wri.-
Ing was almost Illegible, and lie was
never much surprised when his letters
wore misconstrued. I simply took ad
vantage of that, and In my second let
ter I thanked him for accepting our
invitation. To leave him no loophole
for escape. I told him tha. we had be
gun to distribute handbills announcing
the fact that he was going to deliver
the address nt the fair, and I added
that I had ordered the prlnteis to
place his name In big letters on our
three-sheet posters. I knew that when
Ik- got my letter he would conclude
that wo had read Ills letter declining
the Invitation as a letter of accept
unce.nnd 1 hoped when lie learned how
far we hud gone with our printing
that h would conclude to come. Wo
received no reply from Mr. Greeley,
but from time to time we sent him
our posters nnd information about the
fair and the town. A week before the
day set for the address we sent him a
time table and told him on what train
wo should look for him. I was uneasy
all this time, because I knew that if
Mr. Greeley didn't turn up I should
be blamed. When the day for the
great event arrived I went to the sta
tion to await the train. Sure enough,
Mr. Greeley was on board. I Introduc
td myself to him as the man who hnd
sent him the Invitation and who hnd
received his very kind acceptance.
Mr. Greeley looked nt me closely and
there was a suspicion of a smile on his
" 'You had no difficulty In reading
my letter?' ho said.
" 'Well it was a little hard to deci
pher it at first,' 1 replied, 'and w were
in doubt for a few minutes whether
you had said "Yes" or "No" to our in
vitation. When we did decipher the
letter we were very much pleased to
find that you had agreed to come.'
"'Humph!' said Mr. Greeley expres
ulvely. 'You ordered your posters at
once, didn't you?'
" 'Yes,' I replied, 'we wanted every
one to know what an attraction we
had to offer,'
".Mr. Greeley again looked at me
closely as If he were a bit suspicloun.
Ho delivered the address, and the
largest crowd In the history of the as
sociation heard him. Whether or not
he suspected tho trick I had played on
blm I never discovered. Ho Intimated
to ono of my friends that lie had his
suspicions, and lie mnde the remark
that I would make an excellent poli
tician. That was his only comment.
1 still have Mr. Greeley's letter, and
any one who will examine it will see
how easily it might have been mis
taken for an acceptance."

A tJnorgin Town Which Rniscs I'orngo
lor It Stock.
From tho Macon Telegraph.
It Is not generally known, but never
theless It 15 true, that thu city of Ma
con runs ono of the most profitable lit
tle farms In the state of Georula. It
covers sixty acres and Is planted in a
single crop oats. All tho land inclosed
by the mllo track Is planted In this cer
eal, nnd pome twenty or so acres In ad
dition are under cultivation. The crop
this penson Is nearly ready to cut, and
something like 2.&00 bushels will bo tho
result. The harvesters will start to
work before thu end of tho month.
These oats would cost the city not less
than $750 It thoy had to bo nought.
This Is not all, for two cuttings of
hay will bo made from this pamo land,
which Mr. W. Leo Ellis, who Is In
charge, estimates will produce some
thing; like 3.500 lxal3s, which would cost
the municipality easily $3,000.
Tho city has more stock to feed than
is generally considered. Taking tho fire
deimrtment, tho eanltary squad, tho
street forca and nil, not less than fifty
mules and horses must be fed by tho
city, and all of this provender, raised
under fanner Leo Ellis's supervision
Is a direct saving.
Mr. Ellis, In speaking of the matter,
says: "The cost of operating the farm
Is practically nothing, except for labor,
needed In plowing, planting, and har
vesting. The stock must bo kept any-
way, and, with the number needed to
do tho city's work, all that Is necessary

NKAL DOW AM) HIS LAW.
Tho Last Interview with the Advocate
Boston Letter, In tho Sun,
What was probably tho hist Inter
view between N'eul Dow and a news
paper man occurred last summer. Un
til now nothing hns been printed about
It. General Dow was confined to tho
house, and, Indeed, almost to his bed
from then until the day of his death.
The prohibition of the sale and manu
facture of Intoxicating liquors had been
advocated by him for forty-seven
years, and he looked back on what he
and his coadjutors had done with feel
ings of satisfaction, limited only by the
reflection that the sale of liquor has
not been entirely stopped in the state
of Main. General Dow said that there
would not bo a drop or liquor mnde or
sold In this country if the church mem
bers did their duty and voted against
tho trnino as strongly as they talked
against It, A year or two ago he
created a sensation at a Methodist
camp meeting In Massachusetts by de
claring that It was tho church people
of thin country who were responsible
for a continuance of the liquor traf
lie rather than thu men engaged In It.
"If all the church members," he snld,
"would vote and work for prohibition,
the liquor business would bo driven
out of existence; but this they will not
do, nnil they continue to vote with
either tho Republican or the Demo
cratic party, and n the managers of
both these pnrtles are Irretrievably
pledged to encourage the liquor Inter
ests as a matter of political necessity,
there is nothing to be hoped for In
either of these directions."
For the reason that the church peo
ple will not cut loose from the old
parties nnd vote as their convictions
Indicated, he su'd. he did not hold
membership in any church organiza
tion and would not, so long n the
church members professed to oe
against the liquor traffic and at the
same time voted to continue It.
When General Dow was asked If he
knew that liquor was being sold openly
right In his own city of Portland, he
"Yes. I know It, but I think the evil
hns been reduced to tho minimum, and
it Is not the fault to the ofllceis of the
law or the law Itself that It is per
mitted. In spite of all that has be n
said to the contrary, .the prohibitory
law of Maine is a success; but It Is
not perfect "
Then he went on to relate how lie
first became Interested in the prohibi
tion movement. In 1S50, when he was
mayor of Portland, he had u neighbor
who wns employed by the- government
In a lucrative olllee. The man had a
large family, and. In th? main, was a
good provider, but was addicted to go
ing off on long-continued spices, during
which he would neglect both his, busi
ness and his family. Finally the man
was about to lose his office, and his
wife ennu- to Gmeral Dow and told
him that she had been to th- saloon
keepers to ask them not to sell her
husband any moif liquor, and that tho
principal offender hud refused to stop
selling to liitu. General Dow agreed to
r.o the j-aloonkeeper and ask hlni If
he would not reconsider his decision.
"This man," said General Dow,
"treated mo with scant courtesy. He
said that ho paid Ills money to the city
for the privilege of selling liquor, anil
that ho would continue to s.ll It to
the man under consideration as long
as ho had money to pay for It. It
made no difference to liini, lie said,
what became of the man's family; that
part of it was none of his business. I
told blm that if it were possible I
would stop tln sale of liquor In the
state of Maine, not only by hiin, but
ny everybody else, and I staited out
light there and then to do It."
"I begnn makintr temperance
speeches, and I not only made them
at home, here In Portland, but I drove
all through the state addressing the
people on the subject and getting re
cruits to nld mo In the crusade. By
the following year, ISM, we had arou d
such a public feeling on the matter In
the .state that two days before the leg
islature adjourned we went to Augusta
with a prohibitory bill and got It passed
by both ranches. Tho bill pass-d the
senute by a vote of 13 to 10 and the
house by a vote of SG to 40. I did not
relax my efforts In the matter, and al
though many attempts were made to
have the law repealtd they were
thwarted, and in lbS3, nfter the peo
ple had had nearly thirty-three years
of prohibitory law, they were in a state
of mind to vote for a prohibitory,
amendment to thip state constitution
and they carried it by a majority of
4",07u. In 1S93 some people here thought
that the law had become so unsavory
that the amendment to the constitu
tion could be repealed, and tho Dem
ocrats adopted a liquor policy In the
state election. This election was for
tho purpose of choosing thirty-one sen
ators and IS1 representatives to the
stato legislature. The Democrats failed
to elect a single senator, and succeed
ed in electing but five representatives
"Before the prohibitory law was en
acted in 1S51 there wore thirty-five dis
tilleries In Maine, and of these two
wero located in Portland. Now there
is not a distillery or a brewery in the
entlro state. Such liquor as conies
into tho stato has to be smuggled In
It is not too much to say that not one
hundredth ns much liquor la sold in
the stato of Maine as there was before
mo juonioiiory jaw went into effect
and this, too, with a largely lncreasid
population. The law Li still defective
In many ways, for when a man Is con
victed of selling liquor the Judges have
considerable latitude In Imposing sent
ence, and no doubt there an? some
Judges on the be-nch who have been
elected by .the liquor Influence for tho
very purpose of Inflicting light fines or
suspending sentences. As I drew tho
original law. the Judges had no dls
cretlon In tho matter, but were obliged
o sentenco n convicted rumseller to
both tine and Imprisonment. Before
tho prohibitory law went into effect
the stato or Mulne waa the poorest
B"J'1 "ho Unlon' We nw have over
GOO.000 population, and although as re
gards population Ohio and Illinois are
over live times aB largo us we are, we
have twice ua many savings banks
as these two states, and If ,tho money
In tho savings banks In all three of tho
stateu wan to be divided pro rata,- each
person In Ohio would receive $G, in
Illinois, S, while In Mnlnc he woutd
receive nbout $90. Prohibition Is win
ning all the time and the outlook In
this stato Is most hopeful."

HOW COl'FIU: IS ,MAl)i:.
Tho Dldorcnt .Uothod in Use nt Ho
tels nnd Restaurants.
One of the most Important offlclnls In
every large hotel nnd restaurant In tho
city, says tho New York Telegram, Is
known ns tho "coffee man." His solo
duty consists In buying, blending and
making the gallons of coffee that arc
consumed dally by the guests. He is
very npt to have pronounced Ideas re
garding blends and mixtures, but his
fad par excellence Is the particular
kind of coffee pot or urn to bo used In
concocting tho beverage.
The views of tho Waldorf coffee man
differ from those of the superintendent
of tho Imperial; at the Fifth avenue
nnother blend and another mode of
compounding are ndopted, while at the
Arena tha method of coffee making Is
peculiarly their own. At the Waldorf
the blend favored for breakfast coffee
Is two-thirds of a pound of Mocha to
one-third of Java. The Waldorf Coffee
man does not favor coffee that Is finely
ground, but soaks t In cold water for
a full hour before It Is put in thi large
sieves of the countless huge silver urns
of the establishment. For breakfast he
uses about one pound of coffee to live
quarts of water; this Is poured
through tit? sieve and strainers, which
arc arranged In the urns In the regula
tion French coffee l.ot fashion, four
times. Tho result Is n clear, amler
colorcd liquor of excellent flavor and
strength. For the after-dlnnur coffee
ho prefers a blend that Is composed of
rather more Java than Mocha, and but
four quarts: of water are allowed to the
pound. The process of making Is the
At tho Vrcua coffve Js made on the
tables In Viennese coffee pots, by what
H known ns tho steaming process.
There th" mixture consists of equal
parts of Mocha nnd Java. About one
ounce Is allowed to each Individual pot.
Thl; pots themselves are quaint look
ing tiffairs of hammered brass, porce
Hln lln.-'d. and with glass lops. Under
neath Is swung a imnll spirit lamp. In
the body of tho pot Is plnced a Rulilcient
quantity of cold water, while tho al
lotted ounce of Mocha and Java Is put,
perfectly dry nnd very finely ground,
In the glass top. Wh n the water bolls
the steam slowly ascends through a
tube, and, os It permeates the dry cof
fee drop by drop, the pure coffee es
sence falls Into a receiv-r, with the re
sult that a perfectly pure, full-flavored
coffee of the fullest strength is ob
tained. Tills process is also used by
many of the quaint restaurants af
fected by th'' foreign element, but the
coffee used Is the strong, black blend
popularly known ns Turkish. Russian
coffee Is also made .In the Viennese
pots. The mixture consists of equal
paits of Rio, Mocha and Java, to
which has been ndded a tab -spoonful
of dark In-own sugar, a tablespoonful
jf rum and a liquor glass of kummel.
At both the Imperial and the Fifth
avenue the Mocha und Java mixture Is
