East Dallaa Council.
T ho city council of East Dallaa met lu adjourned session last night. Mr. Wheat, member of the coinmlt too appointed to attend to the con struction of certain outhouses at the schoolhouso premise, reported that of the $600 appropriated for that pur poso be had paid out $692.80, for which he showed the receipts. The report was received. Mr. O'ltclHy, of the street commit tee,ieportd that in accordance with Instructions the committee had mado certain repairs and built a bridge on Giand avenue Tho action of the committee was milled by tho coun cil. City Marshal lleeinan's report for tho mouth of October set forth tliut sixty-two ai rusts were niado during the mouth, of which forty odd were for VBgraucy, and tur.ied over to tho county authorities. Assessor and Collector Montgomery reported that since lust mooting he bad collected mid deposited with the treasurer $3293.01. Tho bill for muterial used in the construction of the cjlabooso and. a bridge was referred back to the lum ber dealer to be itemized, and street committee authorized to give him an order for the amount on proeoutatiou iu an itemized form. A number of bills and recounts O. K'd. by the finance coinmitteo were read and ordered paid. A bill from an insurance agent for $200, the atuouut due on a policy on tho school building, gave rise to soino discussion. No alderman questioned tho propriety of iusuritig the house, but no oue scored to have authorized tho agent to itsue the policy. Mi Muiuane, chairmau of the committee on buildings, beloro whom such mat ters should properly come, kucw nothing about it, and niado u motion that the policy be declared Irregular and the agcul so notified.

How to Live Long. The desire for a long life seems to be a part of tbe instinct of humanity. Sometimes it does not seem to he at all mudilied by the prospect of continuous and severe suffering. But in the desire of a long life we surely should include the desire for a healty life. The ques tion of bow to live in a pypsioid sense, therefore, becomes a subject for care ful study. It Is all the more important beeause the conditions change with tho change of ago. It will not do to apply the methods of infancy or of eurly life to middle life and old age. Tho great inclination of youth is to exercise. The free use of the body up to the extent of its powers is not only tbe moans of acquiring moro power, but of retaining wbat we have. So we are to insist upon it that all through the growing period of life the luw of activity prevails. Thero is uo Hiilmtitute for it This tends to prolong Ihu period of growth. Some have con tended that the longer this period can be made the more likely ia long life to to secured. Animals that live long are generally slowest in reaching their fullest perfection. Food at the early periods needs to have speoial referenoo to construction. Hence it is that milk and eggs and all the various foods are relished in quantities. In childhood, the healthy appetite accepts all of the various forms of food. There is growth, energy and much constructive force, and so all of the food elements are needed. Later on, the person, if wise, comos to study food and exerciso wit'1 reference to the kind of exertion that is to be put forth. Tbe in-door life, even if it be one of tod, must not be dealt with as is tho out-door life. Sedentary callings must; have some relief by exercise in tbe open air if the same food supply is used. Now is the time, too, to study tho tendency of tbo system. If it Is to leanness on the one hand, or plethora on the other, tbe fact should govern the diet. There are some senses iu which tbe adage is true that a man is either a fool or his own doctor at forty. By this time he has come to appreciate some laws of his own constitution, and to have some experience as to bis ten dencies. If under good self-coutrol, he will heed these lessons. Not un likely he will need to consult now ami thon, the student of disease, but he does it to obtain his opinion on tho basis of his own experience. He takes him into consultation over his life. In order that be may be helped in deductions Iberofrom. The law of pliability or adjustment must be stud ied and practised by himself. Most of those who die between twon-ty-five and sixty, unless they die by ac cident die by some indiscretion. It is the over-indulgence of appetite, or the neglect of food when needed, or the overstrain of business, or exposure to changes of temperature without cor responding change of clothing. Most people of these ages are conscious of the error after it has been made, or others are consious of it for them. W.thout unduo captiousness we can note changed conditions, and adapt ourselves thereto. Mutitudes die pre maturely by reason of an indiscretion which might have been easily avoided. It is intelligent caution that saves sick ness, and this caution ought to be in possession and exercise before middle life. It is so much easier to prevent serious sickness than it is to secure re covery from it Hence it is that, so many that are deficient in vigor in early life outlive tho vigorous aud the care less. Necessity compels them to study their changing conditions of health, aud so teach them tbe benefits of adaptiveness to conditions and cir cumstances. After middle life it is always to be recognized that a process of degenera tion has begun. The tissues are less flexible and less easily nourished Or gans have not tbe activity of youth. Some of them have become more or loss impaired Tbe safety is lu recog nizing the fact and treating them accor dingly. It is wonderful how the sys tem often bears up under the partial disability of an organ or a part if there is abaptation to its weakness, and some compensation therefor. In a state of inability each organ lends to give to some other a helping band. They will be workers for each other if only we are co-workers. The enlargod heart freed from excitement and fatigue lasts a score of years. Tbe weak stomach ac cepts the substituted digestion of the rest of the digestive tract or tbe out side digestion which chemistry offers. Even old age tends to last The natur al degeneration of tissues or vessels is too often hurried forward by spells of undue exertion or by too constant re pose; while good food is needed and more frequently than in middle life, there is often error in the over-use of concentrated, foods. Thero must be adaptation to our more retired and quiet life. It Is thus that feebleness is sot always tbe necessity of age. The oqiutble life makes the old person a comfort to himself and an examplo of healthful prudence to his freml. Jit dependent. A Brahmin Tradition. Of all the European nations, the Brahmins have signalized the English alone with a doubtful compliment, for there is extant a tradition among them that' certain Brahmin sages visited. In tbe dim long ago, England, and thero created white men. whom they called (iandanas, or God-fearing num. but ultimately these sages became disgust ed with the ancient Britons, on account of their keeping pariahs as servants. The loarned Brahmin who told me of this tradition failed, however, to in form me who created the pariah, or human being of low degree. So par ticular are tbe Brahmins about tbe maintenance of their castle that the richer community only employ bereavod Brahmin widows or their poor relatives for tbe executiou of their household du ties, and it may be said that no matter how sorvile may be the position of a Brahmin In a Brahmin household, no insult is given, but the servitor is held in as much consideration as is the master. The lot of tbe Hindo widow is not a happy one for the law pre vents her from again entering the marriage state, and therefore she is often compelled to work for a liveli hood. The Bramlnical law, so arbitra ry in other respect is not the less here. Widows are compelled to wear white, to always keep tboir beads shaved and covered, but tbe dhoti form of dress is preserved, and even the doubtful pleas ure of snuff is withheld from them. It will be seen that the position of the Brahmin woman in Soutb India is enviable to that of her sisters in North India. Though she is not re garded as an equal, she Is littl" better than a chattel The average Hindoo mind cannot receive a woman as a hu man being possessed of soul and sensi bility. Though she influences tbe as pirations of her children, shapes their destinies, yet she is withheld from shar ing their triumphs or their pleasures. Poolings akin to pity arise in the Eng lish breast or rather Indignation, as when passing through the nativo vil lages he sees engaged in severe toil tbe women, while tbe men, squatting on the ground before their houses, en joy in the cool of eventide tbe songs of the wandering minstrel or the lutcst marvol from the lips of the profession al story teller. It is reported that the most cruel in thoir treatment of the women are the Iengars, who claim for themselves more than ordinary attri butes. Tho European is to him no loss an object of contempt than a pariah, and when the Iengar talks with a Grif fin (as a newly arrived Englishman in India is called) he does not show his disdain, for fastidious Brahmins, when they speak to a Sudra or Europoan are accustomed to place their band on the stomach, and catching the boly thread present the back of the band to the person addressed, uud at the close of the conversation, by a rotary motion. they display the palm. To those who choose to regard this as an insult it Is such. The Brahmin is a bundle of extra ordinary contradictions. Witness him buying a load of wood from a pariah He hails the unfortunate creature, who. setting down his burden, odges away wtfiilo the Brahmin examines it The Brahmin then moves away. The pariah approaches tbe wood, and with bis bauds bufoi'u bis nioiilli, lust bis breath touch the person of his august pur chaser he concludes tho salo. No pariah uses the publio highway made by Brit ish money and under British supervi sion while a noble Brahmin passes. Brahmin youth are beset from their birth with tedious restrictions, the theme which never tires with their parents. Perhaps their only luxury is that ol taking snuff, and in this even the law interferes and lays down a certain age when they may begin; to a bachelor this pleasure is prohibited; snuff taking can only begin with matrimony. San Francisco Chronicle. A Serious Disorder. A little boy who attends Sunday- school was met on tbe street by a friend of tbe family and asked: "Hello, Johnny; how are all the folks?" All well, thank you, but Aunt Lou," he replied. "She's very sick." "What's the matter with herr" "Oh. I don't know. It's something the doctor called 'spiteful men o' Jesus.' " Cincinnati Telegram. The Rusty Cricket A littlv three-year-old girl, when her mother was trying to get her to sleep one summer evening, began to ask questions about a noise outside. When told that it was caused by a cricket she wisely remarked: "Mamma. I think it ought tobe oiled." Portland Tram erit . Attend to Your Horses. When a horse refuses to drink, ot coughs after swallowing a little, it in dicates sore throat, or swelling of the glands of the neck. It is one of the symptoms of distemper, which Is pre valent at this season. Give tbe horse a warm bran mash, with one drucbm of chlorate of potash in it daily, for a week or ten days. There is nothing tcrlous to lie apprehended. For a horse which is weak in the knoes rub tint limbs briskly with a woolen cloth, then bathe with salt and water, wipe dry, and apply a mixture of one pint of alcohol and one drachm of tincture of Spanish fly, rubbing in a tuhlcspooDful twice a day with the hand. Let the horse run in a loose stall, deeply littered with sawdust or dry swamp muck, or on an earth floor. Skunk's oil, beef brine and other trash of tho kind are useless. l'ilos are caused by diulatution of the blood vossels of tho lower gut or rec tum and tho formation of tumors. In dorses they are rare, and melanotic minors on the lining membrane are often confounded with them. The treatment is as follows: Give daily three ounces of Glauber salts and com mon salt; bran and linseed mashes, witb oue drachm each of sulphate of iron and ground gentian root If tbe piles appear outwardly or there is much irritation, and tho horse rubs tho tail, inject one ounce of a solution of a ilrachiu of sugar of lead in a pint of water. A horse can ho fed on grain and bran if lie Is not overfed. These foods are concentrated, and need to be given with caution Cottonseed meal, if quite free from lint, may be given iu modera tion. Some coarse fodder is desirable, if it can be procured, and a supply should be grown either of millet, corn fodder or pea vines, and cut when iu blossom and cured for hay. If a 1 i J. 1 1 o roughness is given six pounds of bran and the same of some kind of grain, and two pounds of whole clean cotton seed, would make sullicient food for a l.OiiO-por.nd horse! live pounds of hay :taily given with this grain would bo quite sullicent. Green food in tbe summer is often the cause of serious indigestion, witb fls common results colic and rupture of the stomach, which Is inevitably fatal. (Such food .-diould nover be given wot, or heated lr.- fermentation afior cutting, or in excessive quant ity, nor when a horse is weary. Clover or rye should be tut after tho dew is oil' and before the heat of the day, and spread in tbe shade to wilt until the next day. A sprinkling of salt will tend to avoid trouble with such food, as it prevents fermentation. Water should always be given beforo feeding, and never immediately after ward. Colic is often produced by co pious watering soon after eating, and also by watering when the animal is hot and weary from work. Tho stomach being chilled is for the time incapable of digesting any food. Light feeding is to be given during hard or rapid work, and the full feed is only given after suflieient rest. Overfeed ing is to be especially avo (led, and regularity Is very important. Ono twelve-quart pailful of cut hay and four pounds of meal is a full feed for a 100Ot pound horse, given twice a day, with an equivalent feeding between of oats or corn and long hay. Orchard grass hay, cut just at the blossoming, is ex cellent for horses. Ripe timothy Is the next best, and corn blades, pulled green anil well cured, make as good feed as any. Dusty or mouldy food is to be specially avoided, not only for its effect upon tbe digestive organs, but fcr its evil results upon tho respiratory functions. Idleness is conducive to in digestion, and during tho present upason particularly horses should be turned out several hours for exercise every day. The shrinkage of the muscles of the shoulder, and which is commonly call ed "sweeney," Is due to some lameness of the foot or limb, which induces the horse to favor the shoulder and throw tbe muscles out of use. This inaction causes tho muscles to decrease in sub stance, and the shoulder flattens or be comes hollowed. Tbe remedy for this disfigurement is to rel eve the lame ness and restore the shoulder to proper activity. The seat of tbe troublo may be in the shoulder, which may have been sprained. If this is the case, pressure with tho knuckles on the shoulder will show 1'.; if not it will most probably be found in the foot on tho pastern joint Navicular disease is the most frequent cause of tbe shrink ing of the shoulder muscles. This dis ease is indicated by the animal point ing the toe of tho foot forward, and by going lame at starting and soon recov ering. Dr.vingfast down bill is the usual cause of troublo witb tbe shoul der by injury to the joint or to the feet Scientific American.
