An Object *Lessa|t,
Alice Stone Elackwell tells a delicious
little story. It was town meeting day
in Barton Landing. Vt. The ladies there
abouts had been tainted with the poison
of woman suffrage notions, and a num
ber of them determined lo attend the
meeting to see how the superior sex con- j
ducted itself on dignified public occa- I
siona. They accordingly attacked the j
hall in a body. At the same day and
hour the schoolteacher of the place mar
shalled the pupils, male and female, of
the political economy class and took
them to the town hall also, that they
might see how the sovereigns of this na
tion hold it level. Arrived at the build
ing they found their political rulers in a
squabble aud state of disorder only ex
celled by the famous scrapping match in
the British parliament. Unpleasantness
was in the air plainly. To see how in
the twinkling of an eye the members of
the superior sex snatched their feet off
the desks, threw away their cigars,
straightened themselves up, hushed their
angry words and began cooing as gently
as a dove on the arrival of the visitors
was an object lesson both to those who
did and did not bcliwe in woman taking
part in municipal government.
Tlie 'Innocent* Car Driver.
This conversation was overheard on
the front platform of a horse car be
tween a very tipsy passenger and the
driver. The passenger waa unsteady and
chatty, and the driver wearied of his
prattle.
"Oh, don't talk to me," said the driver
finally. "I waut to tend to business."
" 'Sense tne, boss," mumbled the chatty
passenger, a trifle humbly, aud then ab
ruptly, after a moment's reflection, as
having struck a happy thought, "Wha'
y' drink?"
"Well, I don't drink water," replied 1
the driver, without relaxing in severity,
"Beer - :"
"I didn't say so." 1
"Well, here, have somethin wi' me,"
and the inebriate, who had been saved
by the driver half a dozen times from 1
pitching over the dashboard, handed '
some smala change to the driver and
jumped off the car, promising to wait at
the corner till the driver returned. The
driver turned to the reporter, who 1
chanced to have overhewrd this dialogue.
"I know pretty well how to work these 1
old stiffs," he said. "I sometimes make
pretty near a day's wages out o' 'em.
Why, I've made as much as $2 a day. I ]
made 80 cents out of this stiff—and T 1
don't drink a drop."—New York Sun. 1

A VERY FINE HEALTH SHOWING.
Health Officer Powers on Our
Climate Results.
The City Shows Up iv Exceedinprly
Flue Shape for the Year.
Tha City Hoard or Health Have Quite
au Interesting Meeting— The Orlti
clim of Or. Hagan of the
C-onuty Hospital.
The board of health held a meeting
;in Mayor Rowan'e office yesterday aft
ernoon at 3:90 o'clock. Beaidea the
mayor, llr. MacUowan, Dr. Kurte, Dr.
Mitchell and Health Officer Powers
were present.
The health officer presented hia an
nual report, which wae as follows:
I have the honor to submit to you the
nnnnai report of the transactiona of the
health oflice for the fiscal year ending
November 30, 1893.
The death rate for this year has been
baaed upon an estimated population of
65,000, which estimate has been verified
by the great register and tbe school
cenaua. There have bten 954 deaths in
the city during the year, which gives a
death rate of 14.01 per 1000. Of theae
954 denthe, 199 were of persons who had
reaided in the city less than one year;
140 of peraons treated in the various
hospitals of tne city, and 150 were cer
tified to by the coroner. In order to
make the report more intelligible and
in accord with the views of the latest
and beet writers, the causes of death
have been classified under nine heads,
as follows: 190 from specific infectious
diseases, 84 from diseases of the digeßtive
system, 283 from diseasea of tbe respir
atory syotem, 81 from diseases of the
nervous system, 87 from diseases of the
circulatory eystem, blood and ductleaa
glands, 37 from diseases of the genito
urinary organs, 39 from constitutional
diseases, 90 from intoxications, violence
and accidents, and 00 from miscellaneous
diseases. Just how many deaths from
other assigned causes than Bpecific in
fectious diseasea that ebould have been
elate,lied under tbat uead it ia difficult
to state. Yet it can he confidently ae
serted that all or moßt of the deaths re
ported aa caused by membraneous croup
should have been classed nn diphtheria,
and that many of the deaths reported
caused by "consumption or phthisis"
ahould have been reported as ta re of
tuberculosis, hence we would have the
number of deaths in specific intectioua
diseases, or preventable diseases, in our
report increased; and those from other
cauaes, particularly diseases of the
respiratory system, much reduced.
Of the 954 deaths reported, 120 were of
children under the age of 1 year. The
assigned causes of the deaths of the
'children were principally aa follows:
Twenty-five from diaeaßee of the digee
tive system, 22 from diseases of respira
tory system, 21 from conatitutional dis
eases and 20 from specific infectious dis
eases.
INFECTIOUS DISEASES.
The city iB to be congratulated upon
not having been visited with any severe
epidemic during tbe past year. Not one
caae of smallpox has been treated at tbe
city hospital during the year. Several j
auepected cases bave been reported, but
upon investigation not one proved to be
smallpox.
There bave been 30 deaths from
typhoid fever. Tbe number of persons
reported sick of this disease does not
far exceed the number of deaths. The
physicians do not seem to understand
that they are required to report cases of
typhoid fever. However, we hgpe dur
ing the coming year to eniißt their aa-
Bistanoe in trying to control this dis
ease, which ia more easily prevented
than cured.
One hundred and seventy-eight eases
of infectious diseases., for which the
houses are piacardeo, have been re
ported to the health oflice. Of these,
112 rases were oi scarlet fever, ant* 00
were cases of diphtheria. Four of ihe
112 cases of scarlet lever died, ami 20 of
tbe 00 cases of diphtheria were fatal, 1
desire to Btate that in every instance the
physicians bave been carefal and pains
taking in assisting ub in preventing tbe
spread of scarlet fever and diphtheria.
And there bas been but one iußtance in
which the dread dieeaee of diphtheria
threatened to become epidemic, and
that was in one room of the (jates-atreet
school in the First ward, where nodoubt
tbe disease waa carried by a pupil before
a physician had been conenlted. Among
the children of thia clubb room, or their
relatives, there were cix other cases
developed. We advised the closure
of the room for two weeks,
which was done, and I am sine
by this means of isolating tbe
children, and by disinfection the fur
ther spread of the disease was prevent
ed. In every instance we have bad the
premises thoroughly inspected, and al
most invariably where diphtheritic
cases were reported we found either the
building or premises in an unsanitary
condition. The lack of proper sanita
tion usually consisted of defective
plumbing, foul cesspools and privy
vaults or accumulations of manure and
filth.
BIRTHS.
There have been 1080 birtbß reported
to the health office. Of these 78 were
still births, and of the 78 atill births 26
were reported with the aeaigned cause,
"premature birth." Four of the atill
births were reported with tbe assigned
cauaes as follows : Internal hemorrhage
of tbe mother, twisting of the cord in
utero, malformation of the child and
prolapßua of the cord. The other 48
were reported without any assigned
cause. The following questions natu
rally arise: Why so many stillbirths?
Why bo many without any assigned
cause ? Why so many with the assigned
cause "premature birth?"
MEAT INSPECTOR.
The meat inspector has been faithfully
and industriously at work since his ap
pointment a little over two months ago.
He has made 2045 visits and inspections
of the slaughter houaea and meat mark
ets of the city. A beneficial influence
has been wrought by tbe labors of the
inspector in preventing the sale of bad
meats and poultry, and in keeping the
markets in a more sanitary condition
than heretofore. He has seen fit in his
judgment to condemn meat or poultry
at 14 different times and places.
NUISANCES.
since tbe tirst of March the inspectors
have made a house to honse inspection
of the whole city excepting portions of
two warda, and during the year have in
vestigated and corrected 6910 existing
nuisances. The greater portion of this
work waa done during the general in
spection.
It haß been with some difficulty that
we have been able to abate many nuis
ances as promptly us tbe cauae of earn
tr.t on justified, on account o! apparent
indifference to the lows of sanitat'O-i,
ignorance 0 r criminality. We have had
to make 18 arrests. Uf these eight were
brought to trial, six convicted and tine l,
one acquitted because the city contrib
uted to the nuisance, and another was
acquitted apparently beccuse the jury
eeemed to think a roan should not be
punished for maintaining a nuifance.
Nine otbera were dismissed becuiiae
tbey complied with tbe requirementß.
There have been collected and die
posed of during the year 1113 dead ant
male. Of these 212 were horses, mules
or cowb ; 001 were hogs. Bheep, dogs and
catß. All dead annuals included in tbo
contract are cremated in the most ap
proved and eanitary manner. The coat
of collecting and disposing of dead ani
mals for the past year amounted to
$1882.80, which ie too much. The ordi
nance providing for and regulating tbe
collection of dead animals, and aleo for
tbe collection of pay from tbe owners
for this work, ia very defective, but can
not be corrected without considerable
expense to the city under any contract
system.
.Recently there has been but little
complaint in regard to the collection of
garbage. It iB being collected more
often than ever before, and 1 believe
more of it is being burned.
It ie my candid conviction that the
city ahould own a cremator to burn all
combustible waste and dead animals;
and a dumping ground to receive all in
combustible waste, and should collect
waste and dead animalß by a municipal
scavenger eyßtem which, if properly con

TIIK POPULATION QUESTION,
The quest.on of the city's popula
tion, brought up by the receipt by Dr.
Powers of a notification by the state
board of health that the Sacramento
Bee had questioned the 05,000 estimate
given by Dr. Powers, came up.
After Borne discussion Dr. MacQowan
moved that the reply of the health
officer to tho effect thnt the eßtimate ia
too low be appro*.el. He moved iv
addition that the secretary inform the
secretary of the state hoard that tbe
figures aB furnished, in consideration ol
the sources of information of the board,
are too low, that the board declines U
reduce the estimate und believes il
should be over 70.000.
Mayor Rowan Baid that upon tbe haeii
of the City Water company's eatimute
of population!, from increase in theb
service and other eonrcee, he Ihonitbl
tilt estimate correct, and if thecitf tooi
in university and a stripthßtia virtaallj
the city, it would go over 80,000.
The motion prevailed by 8 unanimous
vote of the board.
On motion of Dr. MacGowan, the
board recommended that Mrs. lC;-yes
be allowed $2 a month as matron of the
city hospital.
The queation of the county hospital
taking cases of infectious diseases, like
diphtheria, come up, by Dr. Powers
speaking of a caße that waa sent thero.
and Dr. Hagan telephoned saying they
had no place for auch caaes.
Mayor Rowan eaid that when he waa
in the board of supervisors he had a
building put up for isolated cases, and
if Dr. Hagan was using it for night
nurses it was not the purpose for wbich
it was built.
The board, after Borne further informal
diecusßion, adjourned.
Tbu Autfor-i Cat.
The Angora cat is peculiar. When its
fur is entirely white, the aniAial is in
variably blind, but when there is even
the slightest tinge of color tho -vision ii
as perfect as in any other normal cat.
This phenomenon is not accounted for.
The only case of ;i similar kind known is
that of the fishes in Mammoth cave,
which have no eyes.
