Another informal meeting of the City (Ci;incil wjts nelj in the Court House I, tit t evening at which the following woik w)ts attentJel to. The Mayor had consulted with the IroDate Judge as to the covering of the null race which tuns across Main Street just south of the Court House and had learned that the county was willing to do a considerable share of the work with the city in covering the race. It is something that should be attended to at once and Councilors Jenkins, Booth and Sutton were appointed a committee to see that the woik was done at once. Then came up the question of to improve the public square. It was decided that the Council would ' fqrntsh fpr.ce. that is, lumber etc. to build it and trees sufficient to plant a row on ,thp 'outside of sidevValks and another just inside of the fence. It was the of the Council that the outside row should be Poplar and the inside, Catalpas. Councilors Hyde and Burton were appointed a committee to attend to the entire matter. It is expected that the labor donated by the citizens yvill build the fence, and do the tree planting, grading, leveling etc. and if there is sutficieiit iabora snip of probab-'l- y a rod or more around the block near Jthe fence will be sewed to grass. Arrangements will be made for water etc. 'Then came up the question as to the width the sidewalks snuuld be. It was decided that some uniform width should be ad ipted for the entire city and that this block should have sidewalks to cor- respond, but lue council was rut at all united as 10 what the width should be and when they began to consider the (conditton and regularity of the width of Neplns Sidewalks, the matter led to much amusement. It was finally decided that the sidewalks should be fifteen feet wide on mam stieet and twelve ieet wide elsewhere. That is, between the tiees and fence on blocks facing Mam Street, there shall be fourteen feet aud elsewhere theie snail be eleven feet. The interior of the square shall be leveled aud left for the present in that condition and in afier years if it be deemed necessary it will be further improved A report from the committee on ordinances was then asked for by the Mayor. Councilor Hyde reported that they had gotten out a fair ordinance regulating the licensing the manufacturing and sale ol liquors etc.; also some of the general license ordinances and some other ordinances but they had learned that it was useless to proceed further without the idofa legal advise. Everything was no definite "entirely new and they-ha'precedent to follow under the new in-- 1 corporation act ot the last Territorial Legislature. Attorney Adams had been consulted on the matter and he was un willing to undertake the job of preparing the necessary ordinances alone, as .lire responsibility was too great. He wished to have some other able attorney c6nneCted with him. He had secured help if the matter was left in his hands', and had made a proposition to the Council Much that body had not felt inclined to accept. Lawyer King, the author of the bill under which our is now operating, had been sent for and was present. The Mayor 'explained to him what was wanted and 'asked for some expression from him on the matter. Mr. King felt embarass-- ' ed in making any proposition since other 'attorneys had been consulted in the mat-- ' ter and their propositions had been received, but after some explanations, he proposed that lie, representing the firm of Thufmart, Sutherland and King of Provo', would act as legal adviser ol the city, getting out all necessary ordinances, 'meeting with the Council and discussing the same, guaranteeing the scrutinising of his work by the oilier members of his firm before it is piesented, fiorn the present time until January 1st, 1890 tor the sum of 5306. Alter some questions and : answers; Mr. King retired as did also Mr. Adams and the Council considered the to proposition, 'and finally concluded pro-.ceei- - accept it. FROM THE AC TORS. Editor Ensu.n, . Dear Sir; , Thinking you may be getting uneasy about your Nejiln thespians, fellow townsmen, and Lindsay's Dramatic Co. in general, I thought it would be a good idea to' inform' you of our whereabouts; If Fw'as not so illiterate 1 could write you a very interesting and atnuse-inletter while we are running the gauntlet in other states and territories. Eastern VVe have through passed Oregon and I pronounce it the most beautiful country out of doors; it is something similar to our valleys in Utah but mote pioductive, they f.um on the sides of the mountain as well as the valley; perhaps I overrate the beauty of Oregon for the simple reason we staid so long in Idaho alter coming out of Utah into that sagebrush piairie-dojumping into looking country, aud then ' beautiful Oregon, with irr rich fields and fine scenery, it was like getting into a fairyland. The Cities are not large in Eastern Oregon bilt thoroughly met-- ! tropolitan in style. You would think so if you appeared before them in the odious guise of an actor. Instead of seeing (as yOu do at home) sonic lriendly face in the audience to welcome vou, you itieet the stony gaze cl a cold critical yet cultured audience, an audience who has paid for the right to approve of or ridicule our efforts, but, Mr. Editor, I am agreably surprised at the friendly manner in which the press and public have appreciated our efforts; we have not (that I am aware ol) had one adverse criticism but to the contrary we have the line, and gained manv friends along and earnest enhope by our honest more. The average deavors to gain many Oregonian is well posted on Utah afiairs, but occasionally you run across a tender foot.

New Home Where Life Is a Hoiuauce. The governor of Kumamoto, an old frien-i- , telegraphed me to come and visit him sev enty-iivmiles, away, on the Gulf of Shima-baea- , a beautiful city, unda beautilul province, that of Uigo. A steam yacht was placed at my disposal, and, accompanied by two of my old Japanese servants, I went. Tito story of my vLit, if ! could tell it, wouiil read to you like the Aralaau Nights. ivas received most cordially, a palace appropriated to myself, with two officers of the governor, a lieutenant of the uruiy aril the chief of police quartered in the room on the ground floor to look to my wanta, and four beautiful Gicsha to attend me night and day. Dinners after tho old Japanese fashion, and every sort of totem my honor. Ah I it was lovely, aud hard foi me to realize that I was uot In truth a prince, so royal was my entertainment But I mint tell you there is not a foreigner In that prov inoo. I had been there before. The govsr nor wo a Deiiuio, ami my old friend, aud had formerly Introduced Into bis provmoti soveral industries by which they had profited, and one, straw braiding, which paid tua people 20,000 a month for three years; they all appreciated this and wore grateful One night at a dinner an officer approached me and said: General, there is a beautiful lady, a Giesha, at the other end of the room, who has lieen regarding you with great interest. She never before saw a foreigner; may I bring her to you? At a Japanese dinner everybody sits on the floor, which is covI said, Yes, bring her, ered with matting. and she earns; and indeed she was beautiful, with the loveliest voice I ever heard; tall, rounded and lithe, with eyes like stars aud teeth of pearls. I said, Are you afraid of mer She replied, No, though you aro the firet foreigner I ever saw; but they tell me you are an illustrious man and kind and good." The governor then cam and sat beside ns. I saul to kirn, How lovely this girl 1st That was ail. When I went homo to my palace that night, and was crossing the great room on satin, I heard something Sop behind me, and there was the beautiful girl, with her forehead on the mat in ;i filiation. Why, The gov my door, bow came yon hero I er nor sent me to wait ou my lord consul and here ends this story. Ah! how I wished for you, my dear uncle, with your appreciation of alt good things and your congenial companionship; and now, apropos, let me tell you I have a plan to get you here, that you also may sea end enjoy this beautiful country and dulightful people and be with me.

Onee inside the receptioh room she is mlstre3 of the situation. Suddenly emerging from her retreat, she will utter an ear piercing delivered in a sharp staccato, and dash across tho room, as if going to a firs. Returning, at short intervals she repeats the experiment till sho makes a sonsation. She likes also to call around during the night watches. When the locking up process begins she dashes to eoneealinant, a hackneyed and thoroughly catty trick, with no claim to originality, but if you find her youaro lucky, mid if you catch her you are luckier stiiL She has lietter things in mind tlmu a night spent outside, or even down cellar. She waits until tho dread small hours, when, if you are ever to sleep, you are soundly sleeping, and then sho comes to your room and calls you like tho trump of Gabriel and calls agaiu, and keeps calling.

There is light at last on a subject of vast importance to all vegetable caters. 1 1 seems that a green vegetable is us surely injurious to health ns green fruit. But cooking will generally render a fruit harmless, while it will not do so Cor a vegetable. A recent case of wholesale poisoning- - of Trench soldiers was traced to the solanme in unripe potatoes. This esculent is poisonous more often than is supposed. If dug before maturity the tuber is by no means safe. But Lir worse is it to use a potato for food that has, after being dug, beou exposed to the light tor any length of timo. They should be stored in tho dark ns soon as dug. If bitter they should never bo eaten. Tho more discover.es are made as to our health and to our sanitary needs the less wo seem near to a true knowledge of the best conditions for sustaining health and life. St. Louis t.
