At the meeting of the city council
on Monday evening Mayor Medill re
appointed J. W. Welch and Walter
Johnson as members ef the public
library board, and also named Dr. C.
C. Carter as the third member in place

pires. They were all confirmed
unanimously. M. M. Sturgeon was
then on motion of Aid. Corken given
permission to address the council on
behalf of numerous Third avenue
property holders in regard to the new
sidewalk ordinance. He outlined
what he claimed was discrimination
on the part of the city and hardships
to property holders in having these

made explanation. In Mr. Stur

good case if it came into court to
fight it. hut this he did not think it
best to do. He thought the matter
could be arranged satisfactory to
evervone without litigation. What

Dose tor ioe.
In Beloochistan, when the physician
gives a dose, he is expected to partake
of a sumilar one himself, as a guar
antee of his pood faith. Should the
patient die under his hands, the rela
tives, though they do not exercise it
in all circumstances, have the right of
putting him to death, unless a special
agreement has been made freeing him
from all responsibility as to conse
