I le. is sup posed to be restlessly wander ing up and down and across the earth, stopping nowhere but tor a very short time, and he has been keeping up his pilgrimage for over eighteen hundred years, without "time" being called on him. There are a great many legends about him. A number of im posters from time to time have endeavored to pass them selves oft as the Jew, for notoriety or gain. It is not precisely known what he is walking for, though it may be for a wager, but we imagine that he is hunting a place w here he can buy a suit of clothes to please him.

Immediately after the wreck occurred an alarm of tire was turned in, and In a short time the whole population of the town tt as at the sceneof the wreck, which Is pronounced by railroad men to be one of the most dis astrous In the history of the railroad.

Mr. Winger presented a request from Jliss Linn, of the High school, that Alden's Intellectual l'llilosophy be substituted for Mahoim'4 Intellectual Philosophy, now in use. on account of the Involved manner in which the latter was written, lieferred to tho committee on text books. The ipiestion of increasing the salaries ot certain of those teachers, whose salaries had tieen reduced was then taken up.

Mr. Betitt moved that Miss Belle Knott's salary lie increased trom isllil to S1.U00. which she received last year. Carried.

Mr. Betitt moved to amend by making the salary ?I.iW0. staling that lie made the motion nut ot compliment to Prof. Maiu lues, as he had no doubt that the tax eiim nilsslo'i would "cut the life" out of the board's rt'i'iiuiiiieiidation.

Ibis suggestion was not acted upon by ttie coiuuiittii'. The hall was oicned last night by a little tart conversation between Piesldelit Mar tlndcll and Mr. Miller, an allusion to which will be found in the regular report ot the meeting. 1 relitoii rock was not, hovv ever, leached until -Mr. Winger, lose and iiiovnt that Professor Davidson's salary- be increased from Sl.oou to il.luo. He iirg.il the board to make this increase because Prof. Davidson was an old and tried teacher and one of the most valuable iiietnbeis of the corps. He considered it a mistake to mince the professor's salary, as SI, too was little enough. The motion prevailed and then the performance tiegan 111 earnest. sieteral ineuiters headed by Mr. Betitt, ot the teachers' committee, seemed to lose (initio! ot thciiiselies, and as will Is- seen by the regular retmit nt the priHiisliues, they moved one after another to Inc lease the salaries ol all those teach ers whose salaries had lieen reduced Filings went with a perlect looseness anil salaries were Increased in some eases without a show ot discussion. Mr. Betitt was in a sarcastic mood and was ptomptcd to do what he did bythat feeling, as he felt assuied that the tax com mission would cut down the lety ot the board. Finally.

Mr Lorenz, who is the only Herman scholar In the boaul, vehemently opposed Mrs. iteglia's re election on the ground of Incompetency, and gave proof that she Is incompetent, but "everything went" and the lady was re-elected.
