A LOSING JOKE.
A prominent physician of Tittsburg eaid
to a lady patieut who was complainino "t
her continued ill health, and of his inabili
ty to cure her, jokingly said: "Try Hop
Bitters!" The lady took it in earnest and
Ur-ed the Bitters, from which she obtained
permanent health. She now laughs at the
doctor for his joke, but he is not so well
pleased with it, as it cost him a good pa
tient. FEE9 OF I) CTOItS.
The ieos of doctors is an item that very
many persons are interested in. We be
lieve the schedule for visits is $..00, which
would tax a mati con fin d to his bed for a
year, and in need of a daily visit, over
$1,000 a year for medical attendant! alone!
And one bottle of Hop Bitters taken in time
would save the $ 1,000 and all the year's

The Daily Bulletin.
In th'jie dull times the public general
ly au I the hungry newspaper reporters es
pecially iniy be pardoned fur looking for
ward with impatience to the next Council
meeting at which there will bo considered
m itteis of importance to the public. And,
it we may jti Igo the future by the past,
wo may conii lently expect that the con
sideration of thtie matters will afford
much amusement to the audience
present. Aside from the nomination ot
the city pu1 ice force fur the present fiscal
year, theie will be another nutter of more
than ordinary iatertat brought up fcr con
sideration, which will agiin alLrd an op
portunity for brief discourses upon the "d
mucial on li'ion of the city" uud the en
forcement of extreme economy in the man
agement of tht! city affiirs generally. This
matter will be a promised resolution of Al
derman Woodward, favoring a cessation of
woik on the Mis-iissippi Leveo and the re
duction of the number of street lamps to
abUt one-half tiieir present number. It
will b'j sevcrtl weeks yet before the Coun
cil meets again, and it is probable that, by
that time the work on the levee will bo
nearly finished; ao that the
first part of the proposed
ns ilu'ion nny bo withheld. But the gas
lamps are nut likely to be reduced to the
desired numbe', in the meantime, and
with r- fer-.Ece to them a resolution would,
there! jn , not be entirely irrelevant. It is
commonly understood that the gas lamps
are a difficult tubject to legislate upon.
Oas in the streets is a public necessity, not
in t'ortions, but everywhere in the city.
We were in darkness for soma time not
, long sine, and it was only in com
pliance With a pressure from the whole
community, a dem ind thutcati.e from every
qua ter of tiie city, ind that the Council
did not dare longer to resist, that street
lamp were Hiraiu established and the
darkut-es dirpciled. But Mr. Woodward
does not propose to extingui ,h all the
lamps. He would have the number reduce-!
only by about one-half in the inter
est of economy alone. It may be said that
Mr. Wood war I will meet with thesune
difficulty in this effort that he met with
when he proposed sotne jear3 ago at
meeting held in OKI Reform II -tl i, that a
cro?s levee should be built somewhere
down town. Mr. Woodward suggested
that it be built oil Tenth S'reet, from
levee t) levee. But this was objected to
by a (;entlenihn who owned valuable prop
erty above Tenth Street, which he desired
enclosed by the proposed cross levee, and
ho wanted it built on Twelfth Street. But
this was obiected to in turn by an owner
of nronertv above Twelfth Street, who
wanted the levee built on Fourteenth
Street; another objection came from a prop
erty owner abjvo Fourteenth Street, who
objected to being taxed for a levee that
would exclude his property, and he wanted
tiie cross kvee built on Twentieth Street
and so on until it was finally insisted upon
that the cross levee should be built on
Thirty-eighth so as to include the Singer
Works, and there the project fell through.
It may besaol, we repeat, that Air. Wood
ward will meet with this same difficulty
in his proposition t reduce the number
of street lamps; that the people of no por
tion of the city, of no street or cipiare
where lamps are now burniug during d irk
nights, will consent to have thu lamps in
their immediate neighborhoods discon
tinued and yet be willing to pay taxes in
order that other portions of the city may
be lighted. It would seem to one who per
haps judged human nature superficially,
that it would be difficult to find any con
siderable number of men so thoroughly
imbued with a spirit, either of extreme
generosity or of excessive peuuriousness,
that they would cheerfully sacrifice their
share ot the comforts provided at common
expense. But, nevertheless, we will ven
ture the entirely reasonable prediction, that
Alderman Woodward sees his way clear;
that, before he so positively announced his
letermiuation to accomplish the obj. ct in
dicated, he considered every contingency
that might oppose him. His determination
to economize in the matter of street lamps
is undoubtedly the outgrowth of an express
ed popular sentiment among his own im
mediate constituents; and we shall con
fidently expect, that when ho offers his
resolution at the next regular meeting of
the Council, requiring the discontinuance
of half the street lamps in the city, he will
present also a petition, headed by himself
and signed by all the voters of his ward in
front or near w hose residences or places of
business street lamps are kept, burning at
niuht, asking the Council that sucli lamps
1)0 discontinued, in the interest of public
economy. We feci sure that Mr. W.
and his constituents would not be so un
reasonable as to attempt to enforce econo
my in tho nutter of street lamps, only in
so far as other parts of the city are con
cerned, but that they will be perfectly
willing to set a good example before their
fellow-citizens, to the end that all may, in
time, be educate i up to their frugal ideas.
But we anticipate some strong opposition
in tho Council at first: and hence- we look
forward to tho next Council meeting with
mud) interest and impatience.

Tho coming novelist of American lifo
will bo a satirist, and will nearly re
soutblo Thackeray iu his motives, if not
iu his methods. This much it is safe to
predict: First, because an author could
not bo charactoristically American
without a largo shnro of humor in his
composition; and second, because Am
ericau life offers yearly more provoca
tions to satire. Not that our pcoplo
havo not honor, candor, earnestness,
tenderness, and hosts of good quali
tios for serious and sympathetic treat
ment, but because au analysis of our
politics and our society will discover
so many tempting points of ridicule
uud attack, yet these withal, so inno
cent aud ingenuous that bitterness and
scorn will seem hardly called for. Tho
coming novelist must bo a satirist In

years of a laborious public lifo,

seem that his views as to tho best
