A. No, sir. I never remember riding in a Brooklyn ear with a child, unless it was in 1870, when'I was living in Brooklyn, with my own little girl, and I don't rem.ember riding with them, but I may.

A—I did; the conversation wa6 com menced by Superintendent Perkins, Mr - Hagert objected to the conversation if it was intended to contradict Mrs. Peer, as her attention was not specially called to it in her examination in chief.

They had been neighbors for some time and they never said a word when their Ilttlc boy® fought battles over the fence with dead cats and rotten cabbages. One never had roast turkey without the next-door "»*«■ ■ »**». a tempting way upon a plate, and covered over with a snowy-white napkin. There ^ae only one thing neighborly that they " vcr dd ' a d that ' as to borrow each other's plug hats or razors, and the women never borrewed a cupfull of sugar or a flat iron from one another. They lived in on, 8w ® et neighborly bliss until two months ago, an< * that was the time they fell out. One of them came home drunk, and he yelled ok, " Hurrah for Valentine." That was more than his Whiteley neighbor could stand, and there were no more choice bits of turkey aud chicken, covered with white nap kins, passed over the back fence. The Whiteley man in muddy weather tramped over the Valentine man's steps, and the Val entine man reciprocated. In the evenings they sat on the front porches and made .what is vulgarly termed " snoots" at each other, and as the Valentine party were more bountifully gifted by nature with noses than the other's they had the advantage. But everything has to have an end, and so did this. The Valentine man put some tacks in the rug on the steps of the Whiteley. man, and it was upon this that the unfortunate man took a seat. He clear ed a space of about fifteen feet before he struck the pavement, and W'hen he did, he bounced up again about three feetr. At that moment he heard a*snicker and then another -snicker, and spied that Valentine man in his passage with a face as red as a boiled lobster, and his whole body shading with laughter. . He went for him and there was a fight, but it did not last long, as the w ife announced that it would be but fifteen minutes before the.' polls closed, and they both ruslied off to vote. Itrhas been settled now though that Whitcly is the. best man and they are good neighbors again. -- IX THE TOILS. - carpenters, Butlers and men of other trades on the high horse. ..... , . .. 0,8 cblle > Boss Mu y° r - votftd de dira ' ocrat ticket straight out and no split, bnt dat man dar of my own color too, jected a( jq sa jj I te one dum purtty 15th mend . - - T 1 meni * an ^ ® al( t * were, a Kangaroo, yer Honor."

Mr. Frock thought that Messrs. Bartlett & Sou's bid the best, but thought that the firm would put the beater in through Mr. Robinson, their agent in this city. The matter excited considerable discus sion, and the report was referred back to committee, with instructions to have the heater put in by Mr, F. Robinson, if he would do it for $300. The committee on altering rooms in Nos. 3, 4, 8, 10 and 13, reported such rooms al tered and repaired. Adopted. Mr. Baird moved that Mr. Samuel C.

Mr. Woolley introduced a resolution, whieh provides for the appointment of a committee to appraise the property of the Board, and arrange a new method of keep ing the books of the board in their account with the schools, and made a few pertinent remarks in favor of the resolution. The proposed new method provides for the keep- • ng of a separate aecount with each of the schools, and giving them credit for the amount of property which each school rep resents. Mr. Woolley stated that the ac counts of most of our larger cities—the pub lic school accounts—are kept in the manner suggested by the resolution. The resolution was adopted by a vote of 15 to4 .
