cian aiui Secretary oi the board, and
R. C Xorsewotthy--were present las'

discussed. The board unanimously
voted to recommend to the city coun?

29 of the regulations of 'he State

closets, their construction and loca?
tion. These rules are verj stringent
and Dr. Jeffery wants to see them cn

A Legend
Copyright, WO. by AmtT'.rnn Frees
lu tlio year A. D. 879 at a Maying
party In Suffold county. Kiiglanil, a
youug Saxon yeoman saw a ?jirl dtine
iug with others about I ssAgpaaa So
graceful was she, hat eyes wero so
blue, her bulr, glistening In the sun?
light and tossed about ?Ith every step,
was so fair, so happy "as her smile, so
niefbdlous her laughter, (bat the young
man was euraptured
John Boylnu waa a strapping youth
who could send an arrow Into tho
fore of an apple et yards and had
already borne a pike hi the cause of
bis king, Kdinond, against the Panes,
having l>een with his sovereign on the
fatal day wheu be was defeated and
his reign cume to an and John's fa?
ther bud since died aad left him pos?
session of the farm, ~ 'l'llllgg of Mn)
acres In land, with luany cows, sheep.
Dtga and other cattle. Ills mother had
ItUed before bis father, and ha bad no
1 brother- or sisters.
And so It was that when .lohn saw
the graceful Et.'ielredn dam-lug about
the Maypole he bethought himself bow
Inippy ha would be If be might take
' her home to live with bias. Straight
way he went to her father and said to
I "1 wish your daughter to wife. 1
have my own farm and cattle, but I
have no one to milk the cows or to
keep me company when I have done
uiy work or to have n cure of my es
tale when I have gone Into the forest
to bunt or am called uihui by my lord
to do battle. I therefore pray you to
give tne your daughter."
! So tho father, knowing of John's
wealth, called his dnughti-r and, point?
ing to the young mun. v ho was at the
, time leaning on bis bow, said to her:
This man bus his own farm und bis
cows und bis sheep and bis pigs, but
, he has no wife to milk the cows or
, have a cure of the sheep or feed bis
pigs when be Is lu tin- forest bunting
or doing- service In war for his suzc
rain. Therefore he has asked me for
you to be his wire, aad you will get
ready fog the wedding."
Kthelredn knew this to be a com?
mand, and any command from her
father she would uot think of disobey?
ing. She cast only one shy glance at
John when the word wife was spoken,
tind. seeing the tall, well formed young
man looking kindly upon her. sbe gave
him her heart at once and went away
to begin her preparations for the wed?
ding. ,
I It was but on few weeks after this
that n bridal party, of which John und
ntbelreda were the principal figures.
I left the church wheiv they had been
married and started for John's home.
To reach it they were obliged to pass
1 over a bridge across n small stream
called Goldbrook This they did. mak
| ing merry the while, though when
they were halfway over John stopped,
nnd a shudder paaeed over bis stalwart
frame. But whatever the cause he
conquered It and passed on with the
same light step .is l*.-fore.
The wedding was celebrated with
feasting and dan. Inc. the singing Of
minstrels and gnmcs. all of which wero
customary at weddings In that day.
after wblcb the bride and groom went
back to John's farm.
Never did it appear that a newly
married couple would be happier. But
they had not been together a week
before a band of robbers ran off with
the best of John's cows. Then In the
summer, during I thunderstorm, the
lightning struck the bouse and well
nigh demolished it. In the autumn a
snowstorm such as had never been
known before In England covered
John's sheep, and very few came out
aiire. The next spring a baby was
born to the con pie. but It died a few
hours after Its I rth. aud Its mother
went with It.
Then John went out to Goldbrook
stream and cut an inscription on the
keystone to this . ffect.'
"In "the year of our Ixird STO King
Edmond. having 1-cen defeated by the
Danes, hid In the branches of the oak
tree standing . lose by this bridge.

at nightfall cam- down from the tree
