A Valuable Invention.
Dr. A. List of this city has just been
granted a patent on an attachment for
a pipe that will prove a boon to smok
ers. The attachment is to the stem of
the pipe and it is so constructed as to
do away with the offensive nicotine
that goes through the pipe stem and
comes in contact with tho tongue in
the old style pipe. With this new in
vention attached to the pipe the smok
er saves from one-fourth to one-third
the tobacco placed in bis pipe and tbe
tobacco remains perfectly dry till ev
ery particle of it is burned.
We have a pipe in this office with
this newely patented attachment and
we speak knowingly when we say it is
the best invention of the kind ever
patented and pipe smokers will surely
use no other pipe after they try one
with the patent attachment
We are informed that the patentee
has been offered a handsome sum for
the patent but he prefers to have the
attachment manufactured and put on

A stormy Meeting.
That was a stormy meeting of the
City Council this morning. The rail
road company was again represented
by attorney Judge Burrough pleading
for tbe privilege of occupying a part
of the river front with a railroad
track and a depot building. Tbe
council chamber was filled with peo
ple who wanted to see what the Coun
cil was going to do with the railroad's
proposition. The written opinion of
the City Attorney, to whom the reti-
tion of the railroad bad been referred,
was read, and to that opinion Judge
Burrough, fer the railroad, answered.
The Judge cited numerous cases by tbe
State courts and by the United States
Supreme Court to bear him out in bis
arguments for the granting of the
privilege asked by the railroad peo
ple. B. F. Davis made a little talk,
not as an attorney, but as a citizen
and tax payer. He did not think it
advisable for tbe Couucil to give the
railroad the right-of-way asked for.
He said were he a member of the City
Council he would vote against giving
