THE WEEKLY GRIND.
BY THE PLAIN MAN.
Algiers Improvement Association
The meeting of the Algiers Improvement Association during the past
week proved to be a highly inte"esting one. Mr. Joseph W. Lennox was re
elcted president, which proves that his effcIency as an executive Is duly
appreciated. Most of the other officers and directors were re-elected, and sev
eral new members admitted.
One of the principal toplic's up for discussion at the meeting was in rela
tion to the ferry service between Algiers and the city proper. The Southern
Improvement and Ferry Company, which holds a franchise for this service.
was roundly criticised for its lax service. and it was decided that the entire
Assoc iation call on the Mayor and City Commission to lay its grievance In
this connection befor- the council for action.
E,- r since the S,lthe'rn Inlmprovemenlt aniid Ferry Company gained the
fran(hise to carry p,',,ldh back and forth across the river, there has been more
or less complaint about the service, and little if an)y improvement has ever
bteen itlade·. All one' has to do is to .ross thie river once to recognize the rotten
tess of the service. What they .all ferry houses and gangways would be a
dliscreddit to a provinc.ial to\wn, and arc not at all worthy of a great city like
New Orleans. It nmight be said that the facilities for passengers are just a
little bettet oi t the city sidte of the river that on the Algiers sidet. This should
not 14- so. Ninety luer .enlt of thie tra"ffic on the ferries is contributed by Alger
illn's, altld if anything. th.ey. should hatve the best accommnlodatiolls on their sidl,
of the. river. They are not asking for that, however. What they want is for
litht Ferlry Conipany to li\ve up to its FIRANCIIISE. The Association laiiins
that the Ferry Colipalty is violating tlhe provisions of this franchise' openly,
alnd tliougilh thlie people of Algiers have continually mnlade colplaitts againlst
the serv\ic('e. niothing whatev.\er ihas been tdone to reitiedy the defects.
Tl'he Southern Inlprovellent land Fer'ry Comilpany holds its francl'illhise by
gracet of the City of New Orleans. Certain things are specifically stipulated in
this franchise for the accomnmodation andt comfort of the patrons of the ferries.
If the Ferry Company Is not carrying out these specific obligations, it is vio
latinig its franchise. And if it is violating its franchise, then it is liable to
forfeit the sanme. This point should sink well into the mind of the Ferry
Company. It must either live up to all its obligations or give tip its franchise.
The Association should bend every effort to settle this matter at once and for
ever. It has been hanging fire too long.
Another question of interest that was brought up at the meeting of the
Association was the securing of a park for Algiers. This is a laudable enter
prise and should be pushed to the limit. Algiers should certainly have a park
for its people to recreate in. In this connection, I might suggest that it would
be of interest to secure the co-operation of the Algiers Railway anti Light Com
pany in this movement. A park situated in the suburbs of Algiers would be
of Inestimable benefit to the railways company. They should take a keen in
terest In this movement, and aid it both financially and morally.
I was somewhat disappointed that nothing was said in regard to the de
velopment of the waste lands about Algiers. In another part of this paper Is
a portion of a letter from Mr. Chas. Vezien, of Denver, Colo., who states that
there is no comparison between the lands lying waste about Algiers and the
arid lands of the West. He says that "the lands about Algiers are of more
value to the town than all the naval stations and dry docks In the world." Mr.
Vezien Is right. If more attention were given to the development of these
lands and less to the naval station and dry dock. Algiers would the sooner be
come the great city it was destined for. The Association should surely make
some effort In this direction. The wealth that these lands are capable of pro
ducing is within the reach of Algiers. Don't wait for the Western and North
ern men to come and reap the great reward. Seize the opportunity NOW. It
belongs to you by right. It is of more importance to you than anything you

Dainty Dishes of the Papuana.
The Papuans eat extraordinary
things. A particular delicacy is the
white larvae of a beetle found in the
decayed wood of a tree trunk. They
split up the log with their mighty
stone axes and cut up the fragments
with sharpened shells in the quest of
the larvae. Sometimes they eat them
raw, but usually roast them first
"There are two kinds of water tor
tolses which they like to eat, and rats,
lizards, frogs and snakes and the eggs

they hunt with dogs.-"Pygmies and

eighteenth ces-ntury. even in elegant
usage. the deilhlacy was regularly called
"sparr,,w grass." .1 dictionary of 1791
says that "sparrow grass" is now so
general that "asparagus" has an air of
stiffness and pedantry. "Sperage" had
been the usual English form in the six

herbalists brought hack the original
(;reek and Latin spelling "asparagus."'
Pepys varies Ietween "sparrow grass."
"sparagus" and "sparague." No doubt
the eighteenth century relapse was the
last, and the "a" is back for good now.

A Curious Custom.
In Scandinavia the wedding shirt is
an important part of the husband's
marriage outfit. It is usual for the
groom, among other gifts, to bestow
upon his bride a prayer book. In re
ciprocation she gives him a neatly em
broidered shirt, and this he invariably
wears on his wedding day. Afterward
he puts it away and does not wear it
again while alive, but he wears it in
his grave. The Scandinavian widower
must destroy, on the eve of his second
marriage, the wedding shirt which his
first wife gave him.

Only One King Buried In Iceland.
In Iceland It is the boast of the na
tive that "only one king is buried
here." That was King Roerek of Nor
way Ivide Snorrl Sturiuson's Saga.
"Heimskringla"). whom King Olaf the
Holy "+shipped." with the significant
hint that he need not be in any hurry
to return to his native land. Roerek.
who was a shrewd, peaceably minded
monarch, took the hint. went to Ice
land and a thousand odd years ago set
tied down to farming "at a little stead
height, Calfskin, where were but few
serving folk. and there he dwelt and
on the fourth winter got the illness
which brough him to his bane. So. it
is said. he Is the only king that rests
The Life Story of a Sew.
To get the full flavor of this anec
dote, which occurs in Watt's "Edin
burgh and the Lothians," you must
know Edinburgh's Cowgate and its cu
rious buildings. It happened to Dr.
Guthrie, after whom a street in the
neighborhood, Inclosing part of the
Horse Wynd and College Wynd, is
named. Dr. Gutthrie had climbed to
the summit of a tall "land" one day on
a charitable visit. When he entered
the room he perceivefi a sow, of which
the family seemed very proud. "Ilow
ever dil you get th'tt great nulinl up
stairs?" asked the doctor. pantitg after
his climb. "Ay, bItt it ftev41r was doon'"
was the laconi, and conclusive reply.
Curious French Market.
There is U cl'riohls chi market near
Paris in whihh evrytrlhinig is s(ihl at
secondhand. Work~ng girls can fit
themselves out there from head to
foot. As a writer says: Mimi can sell
her old felt hat and buy a straw one,
exchange her old dress for a new one
and, if she likes, buy a steak and a
salad for her dinner, a paper bag of
fried potatoes, sweets and some flow
ers for her window. Democracy is king
here, and no more attention is paid to
the millionaire who is looking for
something marvelous which he may
piek up cheap than to the man with a
wooden leg who wants a new boot in
exchange for a dozen sardine tins, five
gloves and a stocking.
