Mr. Williams himself prepared the recommenda tion for the order and it was adopted by his fellow commissioners. Plans and specifications for the viaduct or crossing are to be filed with the commission within thirty days, and the work is to be com pleted within ninety days from the time of the approval of the plans. This is the case of the Newton street viaduct in Algiers, which has been the subject of considerable con tention for some time. In the decision handed own by the commission, through Mr. Wil liams, the history and facts sur rounding the closing of the ten streets crossing the Southern Pacific yards were thoroughly gone into. The decision charged that "when it closed every street between the river and the woods that crossed its prop erties the M. L. & T. Railroad & Steamship Company creaed a condi tion of total separation between upper and lower Alders that made the Newton street viaduct neces sary." The decision also charged that gases from the locomotives of the Southern Pacific alone was responsi Me for corroding the steel frame work of the bridge, which resulted in its being closed. It set forth that the bridge was built originally in 1907 so that the railroad might ben efit, and aside from paying $10,000 for the privilege of closing all streets it paid nothing toward constructing the $99,00 bridge. In summing up the case, the de cislos declares that "equity and writ ten law both place the burden of building the viaduct upon the de fondant in this case." THE GLEANERS. Mr. and Mrs. G.

What's The Use?" Have you ever felt like that as though no matter what you did, or I how you did it, somebody would find fault anyway? Or you've done you very best and have thought that you would certainly be appreciated-then someone else does it so much better. What is thd use? You spade and dig and weed your front garden Sat- 1 urday evening, and go to bed tired and worn out, but with the Joyful knowledgd that in the morning, all will be beautiful. When, the next morning, you go out to contemplate your work, and find your neighbor's chickens have ruined the whole place, can you refrain from crying, "What's the use!"' Or if you have made a perfectly beautiful dress for Mary Anne, a dress delicately trimmed in green, she will probably have wanted it blue, and the oyster pattles you so painstakingly: fixed for Henry's supper, he will just have eaten for lunch. In such cases, its hard not to say, "Aw, What's the Use?" It's a common alling,--thlis of ours,-of throwing up our hands, and sinking down into our rocking chair in* despair. It's so very common that even fou probably have it. If you have,-it something makes you feel as though nothing were of any use, there's someone just like you whom The Herald presents today. In the middle of the paper, is the strip of cartoons, entitled, "Aw! What's the use?" which will make you feel happier when you've read them. They appear each week.

The girl was rushed to Charity Hospital. On first examination phy sicians said she had received lacera tions of the scalp and minor body bruises, and reported her condition as not serious. An X-ray examina tion was made, however, to detect possible internal injuries. Miss Knowles, according to the police, was attempting to cross Canal street from the upper to the lower side. She stepped on the car tracks in the neutral ground, hesitated a moment, stepped forward, and then pulled back before the street car. Motorman Brindell stopped the car immediately. Conductor Ceallilong assisted Andrew Feldler, 41U6 Or leans street, to carry the girl into Katz & Besthofs drug store, where she was given first aid treatment and held until the Charity Hospital ambulance arrived. Andrew Feidler, Jr., who was on his way to work, saw the girl lying in the street and rushed to her side. He had been waiting for a Dauphine car, he said, and didn't see how the girls was knocked down. When he turned he saw her bleeding profusely from her head and ran to give her aid. He picked her up unconscious and carried her through the rapidly grow ing crowd to the Kats & Besthoff arug store on Canal street, where emergency treatment was given to her. She did not regain conscious ness until the ambulance arrived and she was placed on the stretcher. A friend of hers who was with her, he said, declared the girl had been on her way to work and she asked the police to be allowed to acompany her to the hospital. A SOUTHERN CINDERELLA.
