Charles Dudley Warner, writing in Bar- r ' - . ..--ny..... 1K;r prin cipal troubles, explains: Under these cir- uuuisuiuws tuo city resorted to a novel ex pedient. It surrendered its charter to the State, and ceased to exist as a municipality. The leaders of this movement gave two reasons for it the wish not to repudiate the city debt, but to gain breathing-time, and that municipal government in this country is a failure. The Legislature erect ed the former Memphis into the taxing dis trict of Shelby County, and provided a government for it. This govornment con sists of a legislative council of eight members, made up of the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners, consisting of three, and the Board of Public Works, consisting of five. These are all elected by popular vote to serve a term of four years, but the elections are hold every two years, so that the council always contains members who have had experience. The Board of Fire and Police Commissioners elects a presi dent, who is the executive ofllcer of the taxing district, and has the power and duties of a mayor; he has a salary of two thousand dollars, inclusive of his fees as police magistrate, and the other members of his board have salaries of five hundred dollars. The members of the Board of Public Works serve without compensation. No man can bo eligible to either board who has not been a resident of the district for five years. In addition, there is a Board of Health, appointed by the council. This government has the ordinary powers of a city govern ment, deiinea carefully in the act, but it can not run the city in debt, and it can not appropriate the taxes collected except for the specific purposes named by the Btate Legislature, .which specific appropriations are voted annually by the Legislature on the recommendation of the council. Thus tho government of the city is committed to eight men, and the execution of its laws to one man, the president the taxing dis trict, who has extraordinary power. The ilnal ouccess of this scheme will be watched with a great deal of interest by other cities. On the surface it can be seen that it de pends upon securing a non-partisan council, and an honest, conscientious president of tho taxing district that is to say, upon the choice by popular vote of the best eieht men to rule tho city. Up to this time, with only slight hitches, it has worked exceed ingly well, as will appear in a consideration of the condition of the city. Tho slight hitch mentioned was that tho presidont was accused of using temporarily the sum appropriated for ono city purpose for an other. , , The Supreme Court of the United States oecidod that Memphis had not evaded its ligations by a change of name and form "I government. The result was a settle ment with the creditors at fifty cents on ttasioUar; and then tho city gathered itself for a courageous effort and a new aof prosperity. AN ARRANT HUMBUG. Idea That Age Lends Great Value to AVinee Without Foundation. Now, what are the real facts about old wines? asks the Mirror. After fermenta tion, which is a process of decay, wine will netenorate unless preventive measures are 'taken, such as keeping the wine in a wo'or even temperature, the addition of uconol, boiling (tho vinum cottum of the ocans and tho vino cotto of modern Ital ians), and the complete exclusion of the or dinary atmosphere by good corks, by sealing-wax or by oil. Tho most common method for preserving wine in modorn fines is by adding alcohol and by corking and sealing. The alcohol in wines prepared tw tugland ls olton in 8UCD proportions mat the wina ceases to be any thing like the juice of tho grape, and too often is as na!J"-elass of brandy and water. But witn. all these precautions there is a time character611 f Wn08 1090 tbeir When I first went to reside in Portugal a Present was made me of a few bottles of port wine, of the famous vintage of 1820. fort wine, having naturally more sugar, has consequently more alcohol, and thus more of resistance to decay and deteriora tion. This port, when I drank it, was in its wtieth year, and It had become the color of auterne, and was more like a liqueur, and whiter than the port of the vintage of 1847. ipout the same time I also tasted some port mo that was nearly seventy years old. It was nearly white, aud seemed to have no P81 wine character. InlSTlMr. Rabello, we Brazilian Consul at Oporto, made me a present of several bottles of port wine of ''"toge of 1703. Mr. Rabello had hoard fnm? l)roakinK UP of an old Portuguese '"unuy where, from father to son, a certain "umoer of bottles of famous vintages had ull'i handed down. I sent several of these Pci wines to the late William Cullon Bry- aor!markin& that th0 botUo f 1703 waa, vcordmg to the encyclopa?dia, of his own centiJ Dnt)ne Peti w acknowledging the ro eX ttofJtha wine, stated that it was his Terence h hUld l00k Up t0 lt Wilh toSnJ f C5ma "V bottl 0 1703, I (which one had. the dajk red of M HUH UnUBBnHUM Ut " 11 II II If I EE I 11 h' ' Btk. mm J JR m ,. .

Un - - o""& JA LUIS century it was not the custom in any part of Europe to put a lot of fiery alcohol into any kind of wine, and when they diil add spirit to port wino it was a little of that which had been distilled from port This 1793 wine had probably been thus treated, but with all the sealing wax and a once good cork, tho beverage was as unvinous and tasteless as if it had been water dipped up from a pond and bottled. Therefore I doubt if tho Bavarian wines so sedulously advertised in England as those of 1510, 1640 and 1731 have any virtue in them, even if they bo genuine wines of those dates. They are really insipid stuff not worth a ponny a gallon. ' , Benefit of. Advertising 'Talk about the beuofltw. advertising! Down in Florida not long ago a family lost a child which they supposed had strayed nway from home and got lost Af tor search ing in vain for three days tho frantic pa rents placed an advertisement in tho near est newspaper. Imagine the surprise of the parents upon going to tho door tho next morning to soo a monster alligator upon the door-step, whore ho had disgorged tho child alive and then died himself. Tho "ad" cost them but twenty-five cents, and it gave them back their darling child; they sold the alligator's hide for five dollars, and tho pa reuts are showing the child in all tho dimo museums of the land at fifty dollars por week. Does advertising payj How to Restore Colors. It is customary, says tho Scientific a mar can, to use ammonia for tho purpsso of neu tralizing acids that have accidentally or otherwise destroyed tho color of fabrics. This must be applied immediately, or tho color is usually imperfectly rottored. After careful use, an application of chloroform will bring out the colors as bright Qo'ovor. Plush goods and all articles dyed with ani line colors, faded from exposure to ligbt, will look as bright as ever after s;:,ra Tin? with chloroform.
