The paving committee and board

ted a report at the last meeting of the
council that bears on the paving
jHint with especial force. The pav

Federal street, Wtwecn Western
avenue and Warren streets, and on
Scott between.--Thinl and Fourth
streets, is defective, and in such a
state: as to need repairs with little
ka of time. All this work was done

There are,. il$ubt,&srfT!ome good

Democrat, but the are dwarfed and

The latter are -so wimcrous, in 6ome
place at least, that they seem to

The board of public works, in its
report, says: "The question of mak
ing the ne'er safjVepairs is rather a
difficult onet to settle. To take out
the soft brieks'vand replace them
with rfitblvone would break the
present bond of the pavement, and
would resTnt in a patchy and unsat
isfactory piece of work; although
his seems to be the only way that
these streets can be repaired at reas
onable cost.- . To do the work proper
ty would necessitate the taking out
and replacing of the greater portion
of these streets, which would be a
ery expensive matter. Messrs. At
kinson & Oloff have notified your
eonimittee of their intention to sub
mit a proposition to the city as 60on
as their superintendent, who was in
fharge of the work here, returns,

Tb; Jmoerat also remarks: "The
city has not fully accepted the pave

contractors to the fact that they will
sake the pavement good for two
years. That time has not elapsed
jet. What their proposition is is not
known. Something like half a mile

The Wearing of Clothes.
The Tribune has found out somehow
that there are in the world 500,000.000 of
fully clad people. 700,000,000 of partly clfcd
people and 23c,COO,000 of naked people. T. e
say that the naked millions hare a perfect
right to live in nakedness. They do not
need clothes for warmth or comfort, and
they do not think that they need tbem for
any other reason. They do not ask other peo
ple to ko naked, and the other people hare
no business to ask them to wear things.
There are lots of respectable men and wom
en among the naked millions who mind
their own affairs. We do not suppose that
the men of the Niger and Congo would be
willing to live in this world if they had to
wear coats. Tests, trousers, plug hats and
leather boots, or that the women woutd
find life tolerable if dressed up in gowns,
bonnets, shawls, hooprkirts and things.
Most of the nade and seminude people of
oar race are In Africa, and they don't want
ns to bother them. Most of the clothed
and semiclad people are in Asia, Europe
and America, and they ought to be wilting
to Jet thfijr African Jjretjjrefl enjoy the Ban
shine. Vet the people who wear clothes are
perpetually urging the naked people to buy
and wear them. It is impudence. A naked
person may be better and wiser than a
clothes wearer. He may be pious, virtuous,
sensible, industrious, brave and democratic
Another thing is to be said for the nabed
millions. They drink very little whisky or
beer, smoke very few cigarettes and would
feel ashamed to be seen at a ball of the Cer

An Anecdote of Brignoli.
Thoutrh one of the most nervous singers
that ever went before an audience, Brignoli
in his way was one of the most conscien
tious. He refused to sins if he did not fe?l
that his voice was in a condition to do jus
tice to the song and to himself. He was a
firm believer iu homoepat hy, and was never
yitbout two small vials, one containing
bryonia and the other spongia, which be
used alternately. His body servant, Bar
bagel&ta, usually administered the drug.
On one occasion it happened that Barba
gelata gave him a larger quantity of bryo
nia than he had asked for; but, like the
faithful servant that he was, he informed
his master of the mistake. Brignoli was
furious. He thought he was a dead man.
He raved and stormed and swore as only he
could swear. Barbagelata, thinking to re
lieve his mind, swallowed the entire con
tents of the phial.
Yon see, Signor Brignoli, there is no
barm in the medicine," he said.
"Ah, my God!" cried Brignoli, forgetting
his own danger at once, "you are a dead
man. -What have you done?"
All the doctors in the neighborhood were
sent for and all had to testify that the drug
was harmless before Brignoli would believe
that Barbagelata could survive. New York
The Oldest Cltj In the rnlted States.
It is claimed that Tucson, A. T., is the

unearthed near Tucson which bears the
date 1553 and conveys to the founders of

The Kan of Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania was founded by
William Tenn, and it was the only
state named after its founder. The
suffix "sylvania" signifies "forest
land," and is descriptive of the general
character of the country. Three coun
ties lying southeast of Pennsylvania
were formerly territories of the state.
In 1701 they were granted a charter,
and named Delaware, after Lord De La
Ware, who first explored the bay into

Balm of Gllead.
The real balm of Gilead is the dried
juice of a low fchrub which grows in
Syria. It is very valuable and scarce,
for the amount of balm yielded by one
6hrub never exceeded sixty drops a
day. According to Josephus the balm
or balsam - of Gilead was one of the
presents given by the queen of Sheba
to King Solomon. The ancient Jewish
physicians prescribed it evidently for
