It is fortunate for Provos republican
city councilmen that THE DISPATCH is
not disposed to poke fun at them and
to belittle their work simply because
they are republicans as the Enquirer
was disposed to abuse the majority
members of the last council simply be
cause they were democrats A com

The session last night was the most
sleepy session that has yet been held
It lasted three long hours did very lit
tle and adjourned with business yet on
the table During the fore part of the
session it was almost impossible for
President Oluff to net a motion made
and it did seem that if McEwan had
not been present no business what
ever would have been done As it was
every now and again the councillors
would sleep and for a few moments all
would be as still as death until Mc
Ewan would disturb the slumbers of
the solons with a motion which some
one would occasionally sleepily second
Along toward 10 oclock there did
arise a slightly spirited discussion on
the matter of furnishing right of way
for water to property owners in th
Stubbs pub ivhan south of town
also on the matter of placing a dam in
the Provo river to change its course
near the head of Tanners race
On the former proposition the ma
jority expressed themselves that as
Air Stubbs had sold land with all
rights and privileges those who pur
chased should go to him for their right
of way and not come to the council
The city supplies the water at the R
G W depot platform and it is not the
citys business to furnish a right of waY

Puzzles the Physicians
Since the case of George Woodruff
the Rossvillo Ind farmer has been
made public through newspaper ac
counts of his strange affliction numer
ous inquiries are being received from
medical men in all parts of the country
Mr Woodruff is a substantial farmer
well known in his and adjoining coun
Some two months ago upon retiring
as usual at night he found himself un
able to sleep Woo it as he would sleep
would not come The next night he
was also unable to sleep but felt no
worse for his wakefulness For twv
months he has gone with less than an
hours sleep On the third night a phy
sician was called but even under the
influence of opiates Woodruff refused to
close his eyes The only thing which
conquered his ailment was a quart of
whisky taken in rapid doses and that
only produced a half hours sleep Then
his attending physician gave up the job
confessing his inability to fathom the
mysterious ailment He had heard of
people sleeping indefinitely but here
was a case of a man who conldnt sleep
at all and who was apparently none
the worse off because of it Several
other medical men took a hand at Wood
ruff but each was in turn baffled
Woodruff complains only of a slight
distress in his stomach but his appetite
is unimpaired and he attends to his
duties as he did previous to breaking
the record as a man who defied ordi
nary rules of nature and to whom it
was all the same whether It was night
or day About three years ago he had
a similar attack but it lasted only a
Reports of his strange disease became
current several days ago but they were
discredited To satisfy all doubters
Woodruff has made a statement of the
truth of the reports His physician and
family declare that he has slept less
than an hour in two months and that
all his faculties are unimpaired His
physician will make extensive com
ments on the case for several medical
journalsSt Louis Republic

It Is a Profitless Proceeding to Carry Coals
to Newcastle
There are more ways than one my eon
ol carrying coals to Newcastle and in
almost every case it is a profitless pro
ceeding on the part of the person engag
ed in it
Therefore my son have nothing to do
with that kind of trafficthat is to say
do not encroach upon anothers preserves
except to admire Do not attempt to
stock them with your own game

But on the other hand my son do not
attempt to interfere with his speaking or
his calling profession or specialty So
long as you listen you make no mistake
and the wing of friendship molts no
Give ear to the story of his experiences
at the counter but interject none of your
own listen to and applaudhis spoutings

coming reverence his interpretations of
holy writ but meddle not yourself with
that which the lay mind is not supposed
to be able to cope withal listen and
laugh at his wit and whimseys but
hazard no joke of your own attend
while he relates his mechanical achieve
ments but vaunt not yourself in the
same line
It is a common mistake my son to
suppose that because a man delights in
talking about a certain something in i
which he is proficient he loves to hear
every babbler that falls in his way des
cant upon the same subject that because
it pleases him to exalt himself in a given
direction he likes to hear others in fh
same direction exalt themselves
When a man knows a thing thorough
ly o thinks he does which amounts to
the same so far as he is concernedhe is i
quite ready and willing instruct others
but he brooks no incursions by others
into his peculiar domain When he has
finished the exposition of his wares it is i

of course they are of an entirely differ

The most eloquent speakers are not
the most powerful says Hon John
Fithian of Illinois There are men
who could hold an audience spellbound
with a speech about a cockroach and at
the close of it the people would not
know whether the cockroach was an
animal a bird or a piece of machinery
I saw an illustration of this one time in
a political meeting One of the most
eloquent speakers in the country is Em
erson Etheridge and I heard him deliver
a speech that swayed the hearers like
music at the hands of a master There
was nothing that he could not do with
the crowd while they were under his
control His opponent had a voice like
a big bass viol halted and stammered
but confined himself to homely lan
guage and rather coarse ridicule I
watched the vote in that precinct and
the measure advocated by the eloquent
speaker scarcely received a vote while
the other man had carried everything
before him as if by storm II

tion an aged woman presented two

were but copper and zinc worth 2 or

and sought the train to bear her back
to her home in Jackson Mich She hat
paid 12000 for the stuff and had jour

A Great Question WhIch Is Agitating the
British House of Commons
The great question whether waiters
ought to be tipped is just now agitating
tho hoapo of common hod deal more
than the fight with the lords over the
employers liability and parish councils
bills of which truth to tell everybody
is getting a bit tired But the tip ques
tion affects the private pockets of the
honorable members and their interest
in it is consequently keen It has al
ways been the rule in the commons that
tho waiters in the dining rooms should
not receive tips because living wages
are paid to them but of late years tip
ping has pretty generally prevailed
and the men learned to expect tips as
much as though they were common cafe
waiters A goodly proportion of the
members however refused to counte
r nance the system with the result that
they have of late found themselves neg
lected Recently there have been so
many complaints that the kitchen com
mittee solemnly appointed a subcommit
tee to inquire and the result was the
Issuing of an order prohibiting waiters
from receiving tips and granting to
each waiter an Increase of a shilling a
day The waiters calmly pocket the
shilling but continue to take the tips
whenever they get a chance and it has
become a question what shall be done
with the honorable end right honorable
gentlemen who thus defy committees

A Rich South Dakota Cattleman Dies Sud
denly Without braking a Will
A Chamberlain S D special says
that the immense herd of cattle brand
ed J B B ranging in Lyman coun
ty has been levied on by the treasurer
of that county for taxes The owner of
the herd was John B Smith who is re
ported to have died suddenly In Minne
apolis while on a business trip to that
city some weeks ago The Lyman
county authorities however have no
proof of his deathand there is no record
in the probate court of that connty
showing that his estate has ever been
probate Parties claiming to have held
a mortgage on the stock but who are
pow known to be rustlers have been
running the cattle out of the country
without any process of foreclosure and
the county treasurer finally came to the
conclusion that it was time for him to
act and accordingly levied on the bal
ance of the cattle for the taxes due
Nearly 10000 cattle were run out of
the country
Smith left from 8000 to 10000 in
life insurance besides the large herd of
cattle in question It is regarded as
very peculiar that his heirs have never
attempted to settle the accounts of the

Hetty < < Green 03 a Belle
While credit must be given Mrs Het

business sagacity in building up her

and in this way she acquired a knowl
edge of business matters Old Robinson

and among the lessons early impressed
upon the daughters mind were econ

the value and virtue of money
Before the war began Mrs Green at
that time Miss Hetty Robinson the

Alarming Symptoms
A patient who was very ill and under
the treatment of his medical adviser
was a strong temperance advocate and
a total abstainer His physician pre
scribed stimulants which on general
principles the patient refused to take
on the ground that the example would
be very injurious to his servants and
his attendants
The physician said My dear sir
you must take the stimulants You can
ask the servants to bring you warm wa
ter to your room for shaving You can
have the other II
ave there
I The patient did so Next morning
when the doctor called and inquired
about his patient the servant said Oh

am afraid the patient is going ont of
