The Union attempts to excuse the
mayor's inconsistency in his nega
tive vote on the motion to table Aid.
Bladel's resolution to abolish the
office of health commissioner by say
ing that the mayor did not want to
cut off debate on the question until
the council had fully discussed it.
Bosh! The mayor was the originator
of Aid. Bladel's resolution and he
wanted to see the office of health
commissioner abolished for political
reasons irrespective of the sanitary
welfare of the citv.
W llling to Pay.
When the Biibject of doctors' fees is men
tioned, a well known physician likes to tell
the story of a youns uuin who was very ill
and very poor, to whom he gave unremit
ting care and finally nursed back to health.
Before lie had recovered his st rength he
dragged himself feebly to the doctor's of
fice and endeavored to express his grati
tude, which was not greater than his grief
that he had nothing but thanks with which
to repay the debt.
"Unless," said the young man hesitat
ingly, "you would be willing to accept pay
ment in my way."
"What is your way?" inquired the doc
tor, with some amusemeut.
"I am a musician by profession," rej
plied the young man. "1 teach the flute,
and I should like to give you some lessons
"Ah!" exclaimed the doctor thoughtful
ly, "so you are a flute player. I'll tell you,"
he said whimsically, "I am too busy a man
to take lessons on the llute, but suppose
you make yourself comfortable here in the
office while i go my rounds and blow out
the amount you think you owe me."
The young man, who appears to have
been of a literal turn of mind, actually took
his beloved flute from its bag and was
bout to begin the payment when he
caught the doctor's expr"sion and saw that
the suggestion was made in joke,
"lie seemed so oppressed with gratitude
and anxious to do something," says the
doctor, in telj;ng the story, "that I let him
play at an entertainment for some poor
children not long after, and if flute playing
has any value he certainly blew out the en
tire amount of his indebtness on that occa
sion and seemed to be greatly relieved."
Gold Diacovery by Magnet.
"I was one of the first to discover gold in
the Ember district of New South Wales,"
said Harold Meyer, a wealthy citizen of
Australia, who is stopping at the Lindell.
"The fact that gold existed there was not
known until 1SS4, when I announced my
discovery by staking my claim and begin
ning onprations. My discovery was purely
accidental. It was rather interesting also,
you'll agree. I own a large cattle ranch in
the Enilx-r district, a very fertile territory,
to say the least. For my own accommoda
tion I dug a well, and some nine feet down
I struck quite a small stream, that fed the
well most excellently. One duy, some two
months after the well had leen finished, 1
accidentally dropped a magnet into it. I
tried in a dozen different ways to secure it
again, but to no purpose. Finally I gave
the matter up in disgust. Some three
weeks later I visited Sydney, and while
there thought to secure a magnet.
"When I reached home, I immediately
prepared to recover the old one. I lowered
my purchase, fastened to a cord, down into
the well and slowly moved it about. After
three-quarters of an hour of such desultory
fishing I felt that I had a double load of
something and pulled up. It was my mag
net, but apparently woefully changed. It
was covered completely with shining par
ticles that I could not immediately explain.
Upon examination I found that they were
gold. I repeated the experiment, and in 24
hours the magnet made quite a showing.
Of course I began investigating various por
tions of the land and soon found that I had
a rich tract." St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

I have been bothered with catarrh
for about 20 years; I had lost sense
of smell entirely, and I had almost
lost my hearing. My eyes were get-tin"-
so dim I had to get some one to
thread my needle. Now I have my
hearing as well as I ever had, and I
can see to thread as fine a needle as
ever I did, my sense of smell is part

Tba Basin of a Fountain Turned Into m
Talk about the vagaries of mad
King Ludwiff and others of his tribe,"
said a traveler. "I've got the history
of a fellow that throws all the others
in the shade. His special hobby was
liqnor and he dispensed it to his guests
with a liberality that makes the words
lavish and extravagant appear side by
side with close-fisted, mean, stingy,
penurious and the rest of them, lie
was an English lord and thrived dur
ing the reign of King William III. On
one occasion he gave a fete at his
country place. In making prepara
tions for his guests he found that there
wasn't a punch-bowl in all England
that would fill the bill. He thought
about the matter for awhile and then
put himself on record as having the
largest punch-bowl in the world. It
was the basin of a big fountain in his
garden, at the intersection of four
"All the walks were arched with
wide-spreading trees. Tables lined
every walk, and were loaded with all
the delicacies that money could buy.
But I'm talking about the fountain.
First, he had constructed a huge
canopy to keep off the rain, should
there be a shower. Then into the
basin he had placed four hogsheads of
brandy, eight barrels of water, E.r,000
lemons, twenty gallons of lime juice,
1,300 pounds of sugar, 300 toasted
biscuits and a pipe of rare old Malaga
wine. Added to this was five pounds
of grated nutmeg. On the surface of
this sea of punch was a dainty little
boat, in which was a boy fantastically
dressed. The little fellow rowed
around on the punch and filled the
cups of the company."
A Circular Rainbow.
Many of the best scientists and
philosophers declare that a circular
rainbow is one of the impossibilities,
and give learned reasons in support of
their opinions. About two years ago
this idea was exploded by Dr. Fleming,
who observed and made scientific notes
of one he saw in the Welch mountains.
He says: "On September 30, 1890, we
mounted Finsterrehorn, and while
near the top of the peak were treated
to the rare sight of a circular rainbow,
the phenomena lasting about half an
hour, and forming a complete circle.
A second circle was also
visible. We were near the summit of
the peak when th s first of the party
observed it, and from that point the
face of the mountain is almost perpen
dicular, giving a splendid view.
A Slang Term's Origin.
The following is suggested as the
origin of the phrase to chaff a person.
Apollo, wc are told, received from a
painstaking critic a volume filled with
the errors of the great poets. By way
of reward for such lootless labor, the
god of poetry gave him a bushel of
wheat to sort, bidding him to select
the corn from the chaff. When this
was done, Apollo presented the critic
with the chaff.but retained the wheat;
thus charting him, and making game of
of medicinal agents is gradually rel
egating the old time herbs, pills,
draughts and vegetable extracts to
the rear and bringing into general
use the pleasant and effective liquid
laxative, Syrup of Figs. To get the
true remedy see that it is manufac
tured by the California Fig Syrup
Co., onlv. For sale bv all
