The Third Avenue Contract Dis
tricted and What It Means.

lathe Barln-nit Per. I an.
Considerab e inquiry has been made as
t the meanitg of ihs Aid. Knot resolu
tion adopted at Monday night' council
meeting dividing the contract for paving
Taird avenue and Nineteenth street and
Cjmmercial alley into paving districts.
There is a tw o-fold purpose in the reso
lution. First it is to enable the contrac
tors who shaV. be awarded the contract to
draw pay for work completed at stated
intervals when .a poition of the work is
done, instead of being obliged to wait as
heretofore uitil the entire contract is
fulfilled. . A lother object is to facilitate
the work, at. giving the council the
opportunity to let the undertaking ia
sections to d fif -rent firms if it shall be
deemed fit, at d thus pushing the .work
The propos tion to pave Seventh ave
nue as suggested at the meeting Monday
night, meets with auch favor, and if the
council carrie j out the idea held by many
of the aldernien now, the improvement
wiilextecd f -urn as fir down as Ninth
street through to E m street, and perhaps
to tbeMoline line. It would be a splendid
plan, and not only afford a substantial
street for driving in the resident portion,
but encourage building in localities where
houses are no v scarce.
Many of the aldermen tave taken
kindly to the suggestion of psving E ist
and West Sev jntetnlh from First to Sec
ond, and of Fift enth and Sixteenth
from First to Third, and an ordinance is
likely to be presented or asked for at a
meeting in the near future. The improve
ment can be made without the city bear
ing any portion for intersections.

ihe Kneley Care iTeit,
Mrs. O'Hara. of Davenport, has repu
tation in that city. The Democrat says
her moral character is unimpeached, but
she has an awful tendency for jags. She
is a bard wotking woman and does not
lack employment when sober, but as soon
as she obtains a little money it goes for
drink, and she lands in the house of de
tention. The Lidies' Catholic nnion has
taken her cast: in hand and has purchased
a quantity of hi chloride of gold, guaran
teed to cure the worst inebriate. A char
itably disposed gentleman has offered to
pay Mts O'Hira'e board and lodging bill
at Mercy host ital wbill the treatment is
in progress and she was taken there yes
terday. The Eeeley cure will be given the
severest test it has ever undergone.
As illustrating how totally the woman
is a slave to di ink it might be stated that
last Saturday, after havirg been provided
with clean clo hes in preparation for her
trip to the hospital, she insisted npon
cleaning up a down town effice. She was
allowed to da so, and was paid for the
job. The money went the way of all her
money, and Scnday she was found lying

Russell's comedians presented the mus
ical comedy, "The City Directory." to a

Harper's theatre last evening. The com

play affords f ;ope for some nice comedy
work and son e neat specialty business
and the company provided both to the
satisfaction of all.
At the opers bouse Thursday will be
seen the sparkling 3 -act musical
comedy, "An American Boy." The play
is a string of finny surprises from begin
ning to end, bringing forth hearty
laughter that will send you home better
and happier. The character of the part
played by tbe "American Boy" is mioly
and bold without any of the dime novel
sensations we see in plays of this kind,
his bright manly character sets before the
youth of the country a good example that

medical skill, money aud lovinir care
