my scalp, and, In spite all I could do, with (he
help ol the most skilful doctors, It slowly but
shurely extended, until a yvnr ago this winter It
covered my entire pursou In form of dry sculus. For
the last three years I have boon unable to do any
lab jrt8iid.,iflVrcd Intensely all Uio timu. Kry
morning there could be nearly a dust panful of
scale tiikuii from the shent on my bod, sows of
them half as large as the envelope contslulng rbls

commimceo cracking opou. 1 tried everything,
almost, that could bo thonht of, without any re
lief. The l'Jth of ilunu I started west, In hopes I
could reach the Hot Hprlngs. I reached Detroit,
uml whs so low I thought I should have to go lo the
hospital, but dually got as far as I.HiisIng, Midi..
where I bad a sister living. Ouu Or. trealu
moaoiiut two weeks but did mo no good. All
thouuhl I hnil Imt a short time to live. I lutnii'stly
prayed to die, (racked h ronuh the skin nil over

badly swollun, toe-nails came oil, nnuiT nails dead
nnd hard as hone, hair dead, dry sndliriiless as old

Tho mayor stated tho object of the meet
ing to be to hear report of special commit
tee of water works, nppointed at last moot
ing, and any other general business that
may lio ncccsBury to consider.
Special committee on water works sub
mitted the following report:
To the City Council;
The special cummiltes, to whom was re
ferred on 2:id inst. the communication of
Travers Daniel, Esq,, proposing to con
struct waterworks in this city, respectfully
beg leavo to report, as follows:
Your committee are of opinion that the
number of hydrants tor lire protection
named in Mr. Daniel's communication, viz:
tlfty two way hydrants, are not siifllciont to
givo ample tiro protection in all portions of
tho city; that such a limited number of
hydrants would cause in most cases of lire
long lines of hose to lie used, and thereby
prevent tho concentration of a sufllcient
number of streams to do cluY.iont and
, The coiuuiittco ate unanimously of opin
ion that at least seventy-live two way hy
drants are nonessary to give adequate lire
protection in all portions of the city.
Your committee ascertained, upon in
quiry of Mr. Daniel, that the pipe r.ystent
bo proposed to use, as referred to in bis
communication, would tie, in aizo ranging
from six inches to twelve inches in diame
ter. This tho committee deemed too
email to givo a full, uninterrupted supply
of water in cases of largo demand, such as
would bo created by an extensive lire. Tim
committee further ascertained that such
small pipes would croato friction to a groat
extent and considerably diminish at tho
hydrants tho force from stand pipe; and
that in a groat number of instances tho
failure of water works erected in other
cities (furnishing s supply under pressure)
to givo propor protection and satisfaction,
was in consequence of tho small
ness ot tho pipe system; and
which seems to have been the general
error that builders ot water works have
Your committeo are therefore unani
mously of opinion that pipe running I nun
ten inches to twenty inches in diameter
ought only to be Usod in tho general pipo
system of any water works erected in this
To furnish tho additional number of hy
drants and the increased sues of pipe. ' Mr.
Daniol requires grostor Annual rental from
the city.' And your committee, in vlow of
the much better tire protection and more re
liable supply of water under all circum
stances assurod thorohy, and also in consid
eration of the groater expenditure required
to bo mado by Mr. Daniel, believes that the
council would be Justified in increasing the
gross amount to be paid him ss annual
rental of hydrants.

and the committee. And which ordinance
we recommend do pass. Respectfully stlM

At the oily of Medina, in Italy, and

the earth is dug, when the workmen
arrive nt a distance of sixty-three feet
they ooino to u bed of chalk, which
they bore wllli an augur live feet deep.
They then withdraw from the pit be

lis extraction the water bursts through
the aperture with groat violence anil
quickly tills the newly-made well,
which continues full, , and is affected
neither by rains nor drought. Due what
is the most remarkable lu the operation
Is the layer of earth as wo descend. At
the depth of fourliien feet are found
the ruins of an ancient city, paved

found a soft, oozy earth, made up of

Tho following "good one" Is told at
the expense of a dentist, located not
far from Ovid, New York. A young
lady, while under the Influence of an
nnmslhetic, had four teeth extracted.
Being a very handsome "subject," the
dentist, who was an unmarried man,
could not resist the temptation of steal
ing a kiss for every tooth he extracted.
The young lady was not to much tin
dor the influonoe, however, as he
thought, and decided to be even with
him, ami so on arising from the chair
she said she had forgotten her purse,
but would send the amount, two dol
lars, the next day by a friend. The
following day the friend went to the
office ana presented the dentist with a
bill from his fair customer, in which
she gave him credit for extracting four
teeth, two dollars, and charged one
dollar each for the four kisses, and ad
ded: "Ploose rornlt the balauoo, two
dollars." Ho paid the bill. llhacn
