WHAT WILL Tili: COUNCIL DO?
I Tlu- Question of the Kerry Lease and
a New Boat.
? At tlie last meeting of the City Cotlll
| cil c. resolution was offered making a
I change in the specifications rcquli ng
! that the lessee of the ferry shall pur
? chase a new boat, so as to make it read
i thai it shall lie purchased within one
j year's time from tlie date of the lease,
I provided that, in the ?'.:>? Attorney's
opinion, it Is lawful to do s .. Th mat.
t r wan reported to the Hoard of Su?
pervisors, who discussed tiie resolution,
but took no action because lliey
thought it would require a rtadvcrtls
lirg of the specifications ? f the bids.
The board was of the opinion that it
was foe uiuli rstanding thai a b nt
would have to be purchased within on ?
year, but It was not s> expressed in
the resolution. Now Just what the
Council will do In the matter is the
question. Any notion on their par:. :f
not agreed to by the Supervisors, will
not lie binding. One of the Supervisors
said yesterday that lie thought thai i;
i might be stated at the tune of putting
up t':-e ferry for lease that tlie i issc
would be required to purchase a new

Supervisors would acquiser.ee in this

SLIPPED OFF III:-' ROOF.
Mr. John T. Ilniisford. who resides
in the county, near the city limits, had
an experience yesterday which was
very laughable to every one who saw
it. except the gentleman himself. He
went up mi ii:< kitchen root to shovoi

main building, where it hail banked to
a considerable d< i?th.
Mr. Han;:':.! was shoveling snow

FOUGHT OVER A DOG.
Two young men. formerly very warm
friends, but of late anything but
friends, have been cutting angry-look
Ing eyes at each oth< t I' m- several days.
Friends have known of the little trou?
ble Which caused this coldness, but ev?
ery effort made by them only caused
more coals to be heaped on Iii.- lire.
The trouble culminated last night,
v\ hen the young men met on Court
street. There were wiry looks, a few
words and the atmosphere about them
was tilled with Hying lists, with now
and then a resounding "whack" to a Id
additional interest to the occasion.
One* of them received a cul lip, while
the other lost some blood through a
leak in his nasal appendage. Friends
separated them. The trouble was over
the ownership of a pointer dog.

A BACHELOR P< IET.
Love Story of John il dm s, the "At:
I . .-rat's" Bl other.
There was a romance in the life of
John IIolmes. the batchelor poet and
brother of the coli biated "Autocrat of
the Breakfast Table," < diver Wendell
Holmes, wilo died at Iiis home, 5 Ap
plan way. Cambridge, Thursday night,
says tie- Boston Globe.
Mr. Holmes was born In 1S12. Al?
though retaining his faculties remark?
ably well for his advanced age, he had
for ii long time been a h ipol ss invalid,
and his death was constantly expected
by his friends.
For many years ho lived in the plain
little wooden house in the Applan way,
not far from the Harvard yard, and al?
most in sight of the spot where once
stood Iiis birthplace. In his little ionise,
eared for by a devoted housekeeper,
Mr. ll dnies seemed t? lend the lifo of
rt recluse, but. though lie went little
into general so. lety, he led by no means
the life of a morose hermit. Ho always
hail a circle of intimate friends, ut
whoso hoiiies he was a most welcome
As ho saw more than one generation
of his own contemporaries pass away,
In- made friends witli younger persons,
and some of his most ardi nt admirers
were the college boys and girls just en?
tering society, whoso careers he
watched from Infancy.
Many persons wondered that a man
so fond of domesticity never married,
ami Ill-health was generally given as
the reason. But there was a tender,
pathetic little s:ory told that when n
young man he fell in love with a young
girl who was a governess In his own
family or in lhat of BOtnc friend. When
he wished to marry her Iiis mother and
brother .opposed him vigorously. Their
objection was that the girl, although
of eminently good family, had no
money. John Holmes did le t Intend to
give her up. Wv.i while He- matter was
Under discussion the girl left Cambridge
and no one knew w hen, nhc had gone.
Her lover tried vainly to lind her ad?
dress, it is said that he never knew
where she had been until h read In a
newspaper of her denth. lie then learn?
ed Hiit she bad been living ;n nil out
of-the-way part of the country witli
relatives, for she had too much pride to
marry a man whoso family looked down
John Holmes was said tn he m<->:-..
111:.- his father; Or. Ahlel Holmes, the
historian of New England, while Oliver
Wendell Holmes resembled his mother.
John Holmes belong d to the Har?
vard class of ]?::l'. of which the lasl
quinquennial catalogue showed but
three survivors besides hlms df?Dr. w.
W. Wellington, j. T. Morse and Wil
I lam Gushing. Among Hie more fa?
mous members of this class were X 'ah
Webster, Charles T. Brooks, the Oer-,
rna'n translator, and George Tlchnor
Hi-; early friends prophesied a great
car r for John Holmes, but, while lie
was a deep student, especially of the
Classics, ho fild not put the result of
hi* scholarship into print. He was al?
so a most, witty conversationalist, rank?
ing in the opinion of many f ir ab ive
tin- "Autocrat of the Breakfast Table."

his brother to him.-. If. His verse and
short skctchi s have been handed down

collection may b.> made of them.
