The City Sewers Used as a Means
of Irrigation. ‘
The Board of Supervisors some time|
since received a petition asking that the
Chinese gardens—bounded by Oak, Steiner, 1
Pierce and Page streets—be suppressed. |
The petition was referred to the Health
Officer who, after examination, decided that '
! they were not a continued nuisance, though
‘at times they might be objectionable, He
recommended that the street be graded ||
through, which would d¢ away with the|,
gardens. ;
After this the petitioners applied to the |
Board of Health, and statements are filed | ;
from Drs. A. G. Soule, David Wooster, |
Joseph Simpson and John Nightingale, to |,
the effect that the gardens are a nuisance
and the cause of malarial diseases and t
diptheria in the neighborhood. ‘
Accompanying these statements is a |
petition from property owners that the
gardens are irrigated solely by sewage, and
that it is the custom of the Celestials to
block the sewer on Pierce street with sand- |
bags in order to secure sufficient fluid for !
their vegetation, :
The Board of Health is asked to bave
the objectionable gardens obliterated. ]

is a deseription: The center of the stamp
consists of a profile bust of Benjamin
Franklin (after the original by Caracei,)
looking to the left, in an oval disk, with
shaded background, the lower portions of
the oval being bordered with pearls and
and the upper portion with a carved panel,
containing, in small white letters, the
words ‘‘United States Postage.”” The
whole is engraved in line upon a shicld
shaped tablet with a truncated pyramidal
bage, bearing on it the words ‘‘one’’ and
*‘cent” on either side of the figure 1.”
The color of the stamp is ultramarine blue,
and its gemeral appearance is somewhat
similar to that of the stamp now in use.

A similar rtory is related, by a writer in
Zhe New York Tribune, of tne sculptor
Hiram Powers. He was in Cincinnati,
working on a wax bust of Thomas Jefferson. 1
There was a critic in Cincinnati in those
days named Simms who had incurred the
displeasure of Powers and others. He was
cold one evening that the bust was cowm
pleted, and was asked to inspect it. It was
in the days when the only light was from
tallow candles, and, as the room was dark,
he was given a candle gwith whicd to make
‘a close in§pection” of*thé bust. He begah
to comment upon its annatural appearance,
declaring that the coclor of the flesh was
not natural and so on. As he leaned down
for closer inspection, the burning candle
was brought close to the figure, which sud
denly dodged back, winked its eye, and
shouted: *‘Don’t burnme.’”” It was Pow
ers himself,
Simms always denied this story, but
Powers told it with great gusto.

The chemist and druggist gives the
result of Dr. Magnier de la Source’s in
vestigations into the adulteration of Freneh
wines. The average annual importation of
so-called wine sold there amounts to 100,-
000,000 gallons. The adulterations are
chiefly water, alcobol and glucose, and the
coloring liguid is made largely fromn the
heavy pressings of dry grapes. Morc than
40 per cent. of the wines were so fortified,
during 1883-4, as to contain 15 per cent. of
aleohol; natural wines contain only about
10 per cent. Even of the very mild wines,
less than four samples in 100 contained less
than 8 per cent. of alcohol. The conclu
sion is that French people are constantly
demanding stronger wines and are growing
less particular as to delicacy of flavor.
