The all important matter on tho calendar for tonight'* regular meet? ing of the bonfd of aldermen la the resolution adopted ly the common council directing the lire department and water committee to Inquire Into tho advisability nnd feasibility or the city owning water works, and further authorizing the committee to prepare and send to the legislature n bill au? thorizing the city to ls!-)e bonds for ?1.000.000 In tho event) the water works proposition Is round to be ad vlsnblc ami feasible. Considerable Interest in this matter has been manifested, and It Is prob? able that there will be a large number of citizens on hand to hear the alder tttcjti discuss It. A strong eCTorl ?111 t?o made to get tho action of Iho com? mon council concurred III, but He re wilt be soino hard work ngniust It, and there Is no unanimity upon a prediction of the result. The million dollar resolution comes to the aldermen as an nniondmeni ol tho resolution they passed at a recent special meeting. The original reso? lution was practica?) identical with tho substitute except for the fact Hint Hie former mentioned :i bond IssUO for only (100,000. ?ldormun Walker offered Iho ori? ginal resolution with the view of hav? ing the city purchase certain ponds in tho nelghlorhood of Wllllamaburg. Ho declared that be was not prepared to Hiiy Unit the ?lt}' should own water works at this time, but thought Iho ponds should bo purchased while they wero nvallable. When the resolution reached the council, however, munici? pal ownership resulted. Some mem? bers thought ui the time that the Kcfehum resolution was simply a measure or getting rid or Mr. Walk? er's movement, but later It developed that the minion dollar proposition wa receiving serious consideration.

SPIRITUAL BEAUTY. it Lenvent a Whole Lump of Physical Homeliness. While the desire f<?r iiersonnl at? tractiveness hi a proper one, ? c should remember Hint physical beauty Is not the chief or only thing. It Is a gift of Ood and should lx; cultivated by every legitimate means. In general there are three wide? spread theories In regard to this no? tion-first, that beauty Is subjective end entirely wltblu US; second, thnt It is objective mid that it Is due to the qualities of the thing which awakens pleasure witbln us, and, third, that It I-? halfway between these views and thnt It represents that thought which is aroused within us by the contem? plation of n worthy thing. A subjec? tive und nu abject Ivo element lsjth combine to make up the beautiful. And this accounts for the seemingly separate tastes 'among different Indi? viduals, for. na Is well known, the mother never has anything hut n iwnu tlful child. It Is the clement of appre? ciation and love which ruler* here. I.ovo cnu make us co'or blind. Love, which bides the deformities and smooth the wrinkles of old age. Is all prevailing. There are, broadly speaking, three conditions which tend to the establish? ment and maintenance of personnl beauty, First of these Is good physical health, It ought to be a matter of supreme Importance for women to cultivate good health, And wnthen of the pres? ent time are wiser than those of past ages In this respect, for they recognise the value Of proper outdoor exercises nn?l take part In these accordingly. While dolug this It Is Just ns essen tlal to avid the bnrmful activities, such nn dissipation, etc.. which have a counteracting effect on tho constitu? tion. Further, you cannot too absolutely turn your back on the numberless ti" 'rum medicines and Ihptors thnt are often the direct cause of a ease of broken down health. Above all. live nccording to the rules of health. A second condition of physical beau ty Is mental activity. A cultured and retlncd mind will reveal Its beallaful effect on the fnce. Thus In many old women, where mentnllty no longer exists. It Is not strange that we find n countenance that is ugly and unattractive. The third coudltlon of beauty is char? acter, which will sooner or loter reveal Itself In the human visage. Every phystoguomist knows tbi?. The young woman who Indulges lu a resentful disposition will show It In her face, while n pure. Christlike char? acter will reveal Itself with a light di? vine. In support of thin assertion mini lierloss cases could be cited. These three, then, are the conditions of attaining personal beauty. A USEFUL INVENTION That Will Be Hailed With Joy by tht Cook. In tho average kitchen there are never to be found enough dry towels when the process of dishwashing Is at band. The towel thnt ought to lie ready for FOU nnn.to TOWELS, use Is usually bnnging on a rack, soak? ing wet. To obvlniO till Ulis trouble an Invention baa recently been made that will l>e a Joy to the housewife. It Is nothing more than a band that (Its around the holler attached lo the range. On this band arc prongs placed nt regular Intervals on which the towels are bung. Coming In contact with tho bent from tho boiler dries the towel lu a few minutes. When the Nose Bleeds. When the nose Is bleeding never hold It over a basin or hold the bead down in any way. This only causes further rush Of blood to the broken tissues In the nose. Tho head should be held up and back, tho flow being caught lu haudkerchiefs or cloths. One of the most effective and simple means of cheeking a nosebleed Is to press on the upper lip. Near the tinder surface of the lip runs the artery thnt supplies the Interior nasal passages where the ruptures occur. If this is pressed the flow of blood Is mechanically checked, thus allowing the blood around the broken tissues to coagcnl and seal up the opening. If merely prcssiug with the finger docs not succeed, place a wad of paper Under the Up and fold the Hp over It, holding down tight, says Womnn's l ife. Again. If this does not succeed and a drug store is near, get some adrenalin, saturate a piece of cotton with It nnd apply to the interior of the nunc from where the blood flows. The happiness of life consists In something to do. something to love and something to hope for.?l?r. ehal? te er? _ ?VtaHsJaa^aW frA Rl -fiWl rtBB^B^BSmX^^iM Funeral of Mrs. Davis.
