Proeer(iing«i of the A
Wed nth. lay — Concerning "KstiM."
When called to Order at 2 o'clock Mr.
Williams reported, 1u behalf of the Build
tug Committee of the Trustees of the Poor,
an cxp«*iidilurc ot $495 72 tor incitletitnl»,
aud $8,368.00 as the gross monthly aniouut
to be paid to the contractors, Hyde <& John
son. These extra outlays were made upon
the recommendation of Assistant Superin
tendant Jamisou. Hu presumed that ths
contract Uld not cover these items to a suffi
cient degree to suit the purposes of the
building. The change of water tanka from
the third to the fourth floor necessitated
these extra expenditures.
Trustee Sponger ti.ought these extra bills
were very suggestive alter paying us much
as the board di4 for architects and superin
leudwnta. He thought these hired overseers
ought to have pH Aided from the lirst lor alt
ilieso thiugH. Mr. Ka) thought that tin si

anticipated a debt of $100,000 alter these
bulldiucs were eompieted. He believed
in making a strong, substantial build
ing without regard to the contract, and
was williug to trust the committee, but he
wanted ihe committee to refer «11 such mat
ters to the board. The principal extra cost
was imposed by the erection of Hotels ovtr
the windows aud the change of the place ol
the tanks. These Rnte s had been over
looked by the trainers of the ».outract. The
blame for this overstffbt was justly placed
upon the architect, aid the necessity lor
them fully «-stablished.
Trustee Williams of the Building Com
mittee apprised the Board that the "extras"
were not done coming, aud in reply to a
question said that life tank? were placed on
the top story, believing that the water could
more readily "flow down hill than up hill."
On motion the bills were allowed.
Jamug A. Ray of tie Finance Committee
given authority to borrow money foi
the use of the Board w ithout having to d<
«o through that body. The same gentle
man moved, and the motion was carried, tha'
a committee be appointed load with th«
attorney of the Hoam to secure "certain
legislation well known to the Board."
After much talk the following resolution
was adopted, the Boanl adjourning at 4

How a Stingy Merchant was Punished—
An Arabian btory.
The Arabs tell a story to show how a mean
man's philosophy overshoots Itself. Uudei
tne reign of the first Caliph there was a
merchant at Bagdad equally rich and ava
ricious. Out* day he had bargained with a
poster to curry home for him a basket ol
porcelain vases lor ten paras. As they went
along he said to the man:
"My friend, you arc young and I am old;
you can still earn plenty. Strike a paru
"Willingly !" replied the porter.
Thi» request was repeated ag:
again, unt I, when they reached th
ain and
e house,
the porter had only a single para to re
«•eive. As they went up stuire the merchant
»aid :
"II you will resign the last para I will
give you three pieces of advice."
"Be it so," said the porter.
"Well, then," said the merchant, "if any
one tells you It. is better to be lasting th n
(easting, do uot believe him. If any ou«
tells you It Is better to be poor than rieh d«
not believe hint. If any one tells you it it
netter to walk than ride iu your carriage cte
uot believe him."
" My dear sir," replied the astonished
imiter, " I knew those things belore ; bu.
if you will listen to nie, I will give you such
advice as you never heard before."
The merchant turned around and th«
porter, throw ing the basket down the stair
case, said :
"II anyone teils you that one of your
vases is unbroken, do uot believe him."
Before, the merchant could reply, the
porter made his escape, thus puuishing hi»
employer for his greediness.
