COUNCIL SAYS NO.
.Sum, Vi hat's to be Jloue? Is the Tax
Commission a t'onstitiillomil Hotly?
Council got its spine ere, ted last night
and refused to accept the Tax commission's
modification of its levy. The ordinance was
lost on its passage by a vote of 14 to '2, and
the ordinance was referred back to the
finance committee of council with instruc
tions to cdnfer with the Tax commission.
This puts tilings in a funny shape. The
Tax commission, having accomplished its
puriose, has adjourned kIiic ifc.
"What can be done in this situtation,"
asked'a liErrnt.K reortcr of Solicitor A.
N. Summers, this morning.
"Well, the whole matter of tax levy can
lie left to the county auditor to lie fixed by
Iiliu. The tax commission can then reject
his adjustment uf the levy aud then it
comes back to the constitutionality of the
law creating tax commissions. J he consti
tutionality of the law is in grave iues
tion." But all this doesn't seem to settle the
question of what is to tie done.

Mr. Fried stated that he had uuder.sbssl

he understood from ameiuberof the church
that the church would make a proiHisitioii

if he voted for the ordinance It was con

defeating the ordinance, urging that some
means would present itself by which the
dilemma could be gotten out of.
When put on its final passage, (Jreen and

CUTTING GARMENTS FOR MEN.
How lEeaily Mad Clothing Is Mails ta
Fit the Aremfftt Customer.
Every man of well proportioned figure
can go into a ready made clothing estab
lishment and purchase a suit that will tit
him tolerably well for a very little money.
There was a time when the prices were
not so reasonable and the lit of the gar
ments not so satisfactory. The ready
made Inusincss has been carried to a de
gree of iHTfection during the past few
years that has niado bankrupts of many
custom tailors. Deductions have beeii
drawn from experience, experiments have
been tried, -and the human figure ha'
been so carefully studied, that au average
measurement has lieen established where
by nine out of every ten men can bo lilted
to their satisfaction.
The system of cutting garments adopted
by the leading establishments i known as
the "progressive method. " It stavisfrom
the chest measurement nnd work accord
lug to a law of progression. It has been
proved that the figure of a well built mull
can be fitted from the chest measurement
alone iu other wonls, a man who meas
ures 41 Inches across the chest will, if
nature lu.s ehdowed him with a perfect
form, measure 29 3-4 inches across the
shoulders and 25 3-4 inches at the shoulder
blade. These are the fundamental meas
urements of tailors, for if a coat fits
snugly at the shoulders other considera
tions are, with most men, of small Im
portance. If n man measures 42 or 43
inches across the chest the other propor
tlons increase progressively three-fourth
of an inch around the shoulders and one
half an inch at the shoulder blade for every
additional inch of chest measurement.
The troupers are a secondary matter.
They are made of all sizes, to suit loug
und short legged men alike.
Of course many uien cannot be fitted
well in ready made garments. They are
made for the average figure, and not for
the tiectiliar build of badly formetl men.
The "progressive method" has proved s
successful that even custom tailor hav!
adopted tl e chest measurement to start
frtan milking other modifications iu the
cut of the garuieuts afterward to suit the
prosirt ions of their patron. Some tailors
advertise by circulars to make lerfectlj
fitting garments from tho measurement ol
the chest alone. New York Mail and

permitted to store such imperishable
goods a they have lieen nnable to dis
pose of in tin- course of the day.
The wagons bringing the meat from
slaughter liou-.es nnd ioultry from trains
begin to arrive about 11 o'clock iu the
evening, and they continue coming
throughout tUe night. The employes lift
out the baskets aed arrange them along
tLe side walks. Iu each batket is the car
cass of au animal, either whole or cut up
into quarters, and carefully wrapped up
in stout canvas; also a label lieariug the
uauie of the sender, the weight of the con
tent. aud a sort of bill of hiding, which is
haaledtoa market official, who makes
from it lit memoranda. Then a numlier
is placed on all the merchandise which
eoiues from the same shipper, after which
the board of health iusjiector makes his
examination, marks u V on all meat that
he considers lit for food and has the rest
removed to another place to be looked at
more carefully later on. When it is
finally found unlit to eat it is confiscated
aud either sent to the Jardiu ties Plante-i
to lie thrown to the wild animals, or is
In the meantime the forts de la halle,
or market porters, have commenced their
part of the common work. Handling the
meat which h:ts passed inspection with
large iron hooks, tliey carry it to the pub
lic weighing station, and when the weight
of each piece has lieen twice recorded,
once by the clerk of iliu consignee, and
once by the city's employe, a label is fas
tened to it with ugulvauizcd Iron pin, aud
then the meat is hung up iu rows to lie
sold, a la crle, or at public auction, to the
retail dealers, and as the plccus aie sold
the name of the purchaser is vvritteu on
the other side of the label.
This is the routine for carcasses and
quarters already prepared, but there Is
other meat in large quantities which ha.
to undergo two operations known as the
epluchage (trimming) und the decoupage,
or cutting up. This is done by live men,
and Is u diflicult and sonietiinesdangeroti
work. The decouiieurs wear u sort of
cap, to which a lighted candle is fixed;
tills is the only light that they have to do
their work by, and it must be executed
with great rapidity la the midst uf u crowd
of porters and other market hands. There
are, it is true, a few gas jets here and
there, but not enough of them to enable
the inspectors and cutters to do their work
properly Why don't they burn more
gasf Well, liecause it is known in Paris
that gas is a liad thing for meat and other
food, and the less of gas there Is used
about eatables the better for mankind.
Four o'clock is the hour when the vente
a Iu cricc begins. The din is upialling.
Strong armed wenches, men and boys are
rushing about or pushing trucks bearing
hampers full to the brim, nnd salesmen
perched aloft iu small pulpits Kiwi their
offers iu voices which sound like dismal
howls nnder the zinc roofings, while cus
tomers bid In the same strain. Thu buyers
at this early hour are stallkeepers, proprie
tors of restaurants and hotels, and caterers
to hospitals or asylums. These people, by
coming early, get their provisions much
cheaper than the public will do In the
course of the day. though this is not true
of fish, which Is subject to astonishing
fluctuations The wholesale selling ends
at 0 o'clock, and now cooks aud poor wives
make their itpiearance by thousands.
It is a curious and an instructive scene,
I assure yon, that of the markets at au
early morning hour.
The street I so crowded with people
that wheeled vehicles cannot enter; but
beyond the church staud rows of cabs,
with their horses' heads facing the shois
on thu other side of the little rue that runs
along the front of the ancient edifice.
Here on the sidewalk stand hundreds of
baskets of fruit, grapes and whitish
brown things that on closer laspection
prove to lie mushroom. There i. a wide
passage lietween the two line of pavil
ions, aud at this early hour this (lassnge is
lhat lovely that even you, good jieople of
the golden coast, would cry out: "Ye
gods! how beautiful." The colors of all
the ralnlsiw-s that have arched them
selves over the earth since Noah vwnt
yachting greet our eyes. It 1 n (laradise
of roses, camellias, violets, primroses, of
all the lloucrs iu the world, at least it
seems so. Farther on are thing which
Knglisli lK-oplcuill roots, but which we Iu
oursuperiority pronounce vegetables. Hun
dred and hundreds of rows of red carrots,
lis many more rows of white turnips;
rows three in four feet high, mind you,
and so skillfully piled that no vestige of
the green stems can lie seen, and yet to
each root i such au appendage. And the
cabliage and the cuulitlowers! and the
baskets of string beans ami peas! and the
green "stutrs for salads! aud the potatoes,
"Arrah, the spuds!" ns I heard the gentle
man lie may even now be one of our first
citizens for all -I know say once uinjn a
time iu Dublin.
A little further on are the fishes, on
wicker platters, like round basket lids
with handles on either side, turbot,
skate, mackerel, sole, salmon, perch, etc,
lu ten, fifteen nnd twenty pairs at a time.
These hshwomcii nre not those of Billings
gate, lint they will do. 1 have no wish to
tiiine into mutest with muscular red
arms; anil, phew-' heaven knows they are
jiit now strong enough to knock John
Sullivan himself out of time. Parisians
like fish, und consume yearly ai average
of very nearly .ILiaii.tioll pound thereof.

since I came out to this country hi ls:U,. I
am now over seventy-live years old, hale

health to tfie persistent use of lli:Mr

cold or severe attack of rheumatism, indi
gestion or liilionsne, but four or five doses
of Bkv.viikktii s i'ii.i.s always cure me.
Whenever my children have been sick with
scarlet fever, measles, iiiiimtis, acid stom

few doses of BiiAMiuirril's 1'h.ls restore
their health at once.

My shining hair, my golden hair;
He sang that sunshine lingered there.
The sunshine of the summer-time ;
He told me love had hid a lair.
In tangles of my shining hair."
I.ouisi: "Yes, Agnes, you have caught a beau.
With those blond tresses fair;
Because you cleanse them, oft, you know.
With Ivory Soap, as pure as snow;
The soap without compare."
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the 'Ivory';"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities
of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
