MR. LUKEItS TALKS.
A Herald reporter interviewed Mayor
Lukena shortly after tbe close of the
council meeting. In anawer to • ques
tion as to what action he would take in
regard to the franchise, he said: "I
have taken up the matter and propose
to see it through, not on account of any
personal feeling, but because I believe I
was put here oy tbe people to protect
their interests and I propose to do so aa
far as lays within my power. The city
council is but an agent of the citizens,
and when it gets to be bigger than the
people it is time for a cbange. I shall
rely upon the judgment of my attor
neys in this matter. I! thet hold tbat
I am bound by law to sign that resolu
tion awarding tbe franchise to the South
ern Pad tic company. I shall either do
bo or resigu my office ac president of tbe
board and councilman. The case ia be
ing very carefully looked into and I
shall do all possible to protect tha prop
erty owners."

Tho first implement used by man for
catching fish with a line was Dot a hook.
It was a pointed piece of bono or flint,
a simple baitholder, and the line, possi
bly a length or so of somo dried vine or
grass, was tied to the middle of tho
piece. The fish swallowed the whole
bait, bono and all, and so the first im
plement was what wo would oall a gorge
hook today. In time bronze was substi
tuted for bone, but tho form of tho first
implement was retained. Untold age*
passed before the first fishhook wai
made, and, strangely enough, when a
prong was fashioned on tho hook, thfo
prong turned outward and not inward}

HIS NOVEL THEORY OF TIDES.
Uncle Alvah Danninc Thinks the Old
World "Sloshes" Aronnd.
Uncle Alvali Banning, tho hermit of
the Adiroudacks, maintains that the
earth is not round liko a ball, but as
flat as a pancake, or, at best, that it re
sembles a milk pan, with enough of an
edge to it to keep tho water from run
ning away. •
A number of guests at Charlio Ben
nett's "Antlers," on Raquette lake,
Were discussing tho theory with Undo
Alvah one day during the hunting sea
son. One of them undertook tho alto
gether hopeless task of convincing tho
old man of the error of his beliof.'
Among other things he called attention
to the tides.
"Uncle Alvah," he said, "you've
heard of tides, haven't you? How do
you account for them if the world isn't
round?"
Tho old man remained silent for
awhile and then drawled forth, "Waal,
I hey some, idoo as to 'om. "
"What is it, then?" asked the ques
tioner, while all tho sportsmen drew
near to await tho answer. Uncle Alvah
was not to bo hurried, and after anoth
er pauso ho remarked:
"Did ye over turn over in bed? I
thinks raoro than likely."
"Yes, I'vo turned over in bod."
"Do ye sleep 'tween sheets?"
"Always," replied tho questioner
laughingly. "What's that got to do
with it:"
"It's got all to do with it, in my
opinion. When you went over, didn't
tho bedclothes kind o' slip round an
slosh round an didn't get there same
time as you did?"
"Yes."
"Waal, that's my idee of tho tides.
The old earth sort o' slips round under
tho water liko a man under tho bed.

DOCTORED MINERAL WATERS.
Results of an Investigation Recently Made
by the Academlo do Medecine.
Tho Acatlemie do Medecine of Pari.-,
rts the result of n closo investigation of
tho tradn in the so called "natural"
mineral waters of Frnnco, has arrived
nt tho following conclusions, which aro
pu*; in tho form of recommendation.* to
tho legislative bodies:
First.—That the sa'.o of natural wit
ters impregnated with supplementary
gases should, not bo allowed.
Second.—Every application for per
mit to carry on the business of tho salo
of natural mineral waters should bo ac
companied by certificates made bofore
tho proper authorities that tho waters
handled or to bo handled by tho appli
cant havo not been so prepared—i.e.,
by supplementary oarboniflcation —and
by a further certificate on the part of
tho owner of tho spring or of the source
of tho water that ho has not had ro
cotii'so to supplementary gasification.
Third.—All reservoirs used for miner
al water should be made airtight and
should bo emptied at least onco in every
24 hours. They should bo so construct
ed that tho water of the spring Hows di
rectly into them, and, further, all bottles
and containers should bo thoroughly
sterilized, aud all impurities of every
description should ba removed before
they are offered for salo.
Fourth.—Ther.o regulations should be
at once imposed, and all proprietors of
springs of mineral waters should bo
forced to put them in practice within
threo months from date.
In Franco tho recommendations of
tho aoademio carry almost tho weight
of an order, and there is but little doubt
but that tho abovo regulations will soon
bo in force, so far as commercial waters
for home consumption are concerned. If
they are made to apply to all waters,
thoso for export as well as thoso for do
mestic use, there will bo a fearful fall
ing off in exports, as it is well known
that every single bottle of foreign so
called "natural" carbonated waters —
not merely thoso of France, but those of
Germany, Austria and other countries
—that goes abroad goes charged with
supplementary gas. Not merely this,
but nearly every ono of them is doctor
ed Otherwise to an extent that should
remove them entirely from tho category
of natural waters.
Some of the great mineral water com
panies annually export to America
alono millions of bottles of water in ex
cess of tho output of their springs. Ey
a strange ruling of our customs officials
these manufactured mineral waters have
been allowed for yoars past to come
into this country as "natural waters,"
and thus hot morely enter into competi
tion with our domestic products, ijht
ural and manufactured, but to "hold
tho ago" on tho latter as "tho product
of nature's laboratory," a fetich of great
power among tho unthinking multitude.

THE ABSENTEE VICEROY.
Tho Irish People. Have Just Cause For
Complaint Against Lord Houghton.
Tho latest grievance discovered by
the Parnellitea is well founded and is
calculated to win them general popular
sympathy in Ireland. It is that tho lord
lieutenant is an absentee. It is a fact
that Lord Houghton spends as little
time as possible in tbe country from
which ho draws his salary of £20,000
a year. Tho Irish people could very well
do without his lordship, but they natu
rally grieve as business men as well as
patriots to sco that good money is spent
out of tho country, especially as they
havo provided it out of funds none toe
ample at tho best times.
Lord Houghton is enormously wealthy,
having inherited tho bulk of tho big
fortr.no of his uuele, tho late Lord
Crewe, in addition to his own previous
ly large incomo. He has no personal
need of tho viceroy's salary, and, if ru
mor can bo relied upon, has no taste for
tho office. It is not surprising, therefore
to learn that ho is contemplating retir
ing. It is believed that tho proposed
successor of Lord Houghton was young
Lord Drumlanrig, who committed sui
cide under such sad circumstances a few
weeks ago. Tho government now has
some difficulty in finding a Liberal peer
qualified and willing to accept tho Irish
viceroyalty, dignified sinecure though
it be.—New York Sun's London Letter.
Spnrious Vaccine Points.
Dr. Maximilian Herzog, a young Gor
man physician, has set the medical fra
ternity of Milwaukee by the ears and
has incidentally created a sensation in
other circles. Ho has been spending some
timo in tho smallpox hospital there,
making investigations and experiments,
and announces as a result" that a large
pereentago of tho vaccine points used in
medical practice aro spurious, having
been dippod not in genuine virus, but
in crotou oil or other local irritant. Hg
has made microscopic and chemical ex
aminations of these points and invites
doubting physicians to make the same
tests. Ho is a believer in the efficacy of
proper vaccination and is severe in his
denunciation of tho men who make the
spurious lymph, classing them as scoun
drels and murderers.—lndianapolis

One Hope of the Eastern War.
Recent reports from tho British consul

adopting any modern labor saving ma
chinery. Perhaps ono of tho effects of
tho present war may be tho enlightening
of tho Celestial mind and tho opening
