A Btrlotljf Silslrtesa Meeting.
The city fathers met In regular ses
sion last night, Mayor Tlbbs pro tern
In the chair.
A petition from citizens was read
Invoking the council to abate certain
houses of prostitution on North Se
cond street and on Third and Fourth
street. After considerable debate it
was referred to the mayor for conside
ration. A petition of one J. H. Williams,
was read and laid on tho table-by a
vote of five to three on motion of
Alderman Forsgard. Tho petition
asked permission to open and run a
varloty theater on tho North side of
tho public square.
A statement of balancos of respect
ive funds wore reported bv City
Treasurer W, W. Soley.
The city pbycictan reported ten
deaths during November.
Alderman Lacy, reported a propo
sition fromC. W. White, president
of the Waco water company to furn

It was referred to the committee on
water supply with ordors to report at
the next regular meeting.
Alderman Goode reported that tho

was unwilling to run its wires under

a diameter of two and one-half feet,
was reported, as also a bid by Lee
Slaughter to build a bridge over
Waco creek on Norh Ninth street, for
mree iiunarea ana seveniy-nvo aoi
A considerable debato occured over
tho building of the sower, Alderman
Caru there oppdsing on account of tho
condition of city fiuancos. Aldermun
Lacy also opposed it and said during
his remaks on the subject that
the city, after disbursing the
city taxes for the current year, would
still be behind at least thirty-five
thousand dollars and that the heart
of the chairman of tho finance com
mittee was breaking from the worry
of duns and If this sewer bill was
passed It would bothe one thing
wanting to complete the calamity.
Alderman Stephenson, favored tho
sewer if Mr, Baado would build tho
sewer on time and take tho risk of
getting his raonoy eventually. The
bid for the sewer was postponed and
that for building the bridge across
Waco creek accepted.
It was ordered that the new City
Hall be Insured.

The'petltlon presented to the city
council last night asking permission
to open and run a variety theatre on
the Northwest corner of the square,
and which was promptly tabled by
a vote of five to three, was, we under
stand, sat.down upon from a careful
consideration by members of the city
council. A second-class theater in a
location whero It tumid be properly
supervised by the police would pro
bably meet with little objection in
thpolty council. Tho aldermen are
not straight laced puritans, but at
the same time they aro well posted in
all things that concern tho welfare
of tho city and exorcise great discre
tion, moro so perhaps than any pre
vious oounoll. There was, as is al
ways the case, an honest difference of
opinion In roga'rd to the matter, ns

night of seeing ono who is considered
by many to bo the most beautiful

Tho play sho presented was tho
dramatization of Amclio Hives' cele
brated novel, "The Quick or tho
Dead," which caused such a sensation
somo timo ago in literary circles, and
whilo the plot is tho same, somo of tho
most sensational scenes aro omitted.
Miss Clayton took tho character of
"Barbara" and sustained it admirably.
The love-making scenes were ouitc
natural and realistic, holding tho
audionuo in porfoot sympathy with her.
In tho last act, where sho pauses be
tween her duty to the dead or tho liv
ing, she was especially fine and demon
strated her powers as an actress of no
ordinary ability. Miss Clayton's sup
port was excellent. Mr. Wallis as
"Jook Doring," and Mr. Fairbanks as

ially, were good.

Railroad In the Arctlo Circle.
An Important engineering enterprise
now in progjess Is u railroad in the arc
tic circle. Tho Swedish and Norwegian
raihoad now buildinc from Lulea. on
tho Oulf of Bothnia, to LulTodcn, on the
North sea, Is partly situated within the
arctic circle and la somo 1.200 miles fur
ther north than any railroad in Canada.
An interesting meteorological fact stated
in relation to this work is that tho snow
fall is bound to bo actually less than in
some more southern latitudes, whilo the
darkness of tho long winter nights has
been partly compensated by tho light of
tho aurora. Tho object in view in con
structing this lino is to tap tho enormous
doposits of iron oro in the Gellivara
mountains', tho approximate exhaustion
of the ore in the Bilbao district render
ing very desirablo a now field of non
phosphoric ore suitable for steel rail
making. Brooklyn Eagle.
German Remedy for Bums.
The celebrated German remedy for
burns is made as follows: Toko of the
best white gluo fifteen ounces, break Into
small pieces, add to it two pints of water,
and allow it to become soft; then dis
solve it by means of a water bath and
add two ounces of glycerine and six
drachms of carbolic acid; continuo the
heat until thoroughly dissolved. On
cooling, this mixture hardens to an clas
tic mass covered witli a ehiiilni; parch
ment liko skin, and may bo kent for any
length of timo. When required for uso
it is placed for a few minutes in a water
bath until sufficiently liquid, and applied
by means of a broad brush; it forms in
about two minutes a sinning, smooth,
flexiblo and nearly transparent skin.

Avoiding Unwelcome CaUen.
A Pliiladelnhia business man has hit
upon a novel scheme for avoiding un
uclcomo callers. He has placed a de
tcctivo camera directly opposite tho door
of his office. When a visitor enters, tho
office boyi a bright lad and well schooled
in thb diplomacy of his profession, turns
tho knob and takes an instantaneous
Shotogruph of tho intruder. This is
ovelopcu and forms one of a collection
of undesirable visitors, which is kept In
ti book for tho boy's instruction in the
future.- People who come to wasto
others' time, collectors with bills that
they wish paid and tho thousand and ono
disagreeablo characters known to tho
averago business man form tho basis of
this unique collection. Philadelphia

Original- Cm of Caaea.
Somebody has been looking up tho his
tory of canes In this country, and finds
that they were originally a part of tho
repertory of the leaders of the church,

Tho cane was about five feet long, and
ono end was embellished with a big
knob, tho other with feathers, when
tho small boy rebelled ho got a rap on
tho head with the uncharitable head of
(lie cane. If tho head of the family got

on the deacon's cano feathered him Into
