Hammond is experi- menting with the elixir of life recently discovered by Dr. Jlrown-Sequard of Paris, and thus far he says the results are fully equal to the promises given out by the great Paris physician. Dr. Hammond was sitting on the veranda of the line new hospital which he has just built outside of AVashington city limits, when The World correspondent called on him. is said the doctor, "that when Dr. Urown-Sequard's discovery was lirst reported to the American people by The it was The U'orld that lirst made it known to was rather dubious and in- clined more or less to think as others had hinted, that either the report was a French joke or that Dr. Urown- Sequurd was -another good man gone wrong.' The lirst report did not give a complete idea of the treatment. It in- dicated, rather, that the elixir a compound made from various animals and on that showing 1 willing to say the thing was impossible. But when 1 obtained further and more ac- curate details from The AVorld itself and from the French medical journals, 1 was willing to believe that there A SESSION OF THE COLM'IL.

An Ordinance Adopted--- At the Printed Charter Work for the Itoarcl of 1'ubllc The 1'ourorn House liaises a Jtuc- j The Fellow Jrermlttctl to mi o "roadway Ten Iliat 1S Ollr wo help it, and don't want to. met last Monday evening Aldermen Slocum and Morin being absent, ilinutes of last meeting read and approved. The city attorney submitted an ordi- nance prohibiting defacing city prop- erty and interfering with artesian wells. The ordinance was received and passed. On motion of Alderman AViegand the matter of the popcorn stand was referred to the mayor to collect such in his judgment may be might be something in it. 1 was wil- ling at all events to put it to the test, and about a week ago J started to ex- periment. Dr. Brown-x-quard uses only selected portions of the rabbit or Guinea pig, simply because, I suppose, these are the animals upon which ex- periments are usually made in the rench laboratories, but I have adopt- d the lamb, which i think is better. The lamb you know is an animal that is good to eat, but we don't eat Guinea pigs. The preparations of the medicine and the treatment of the patient are :ery simple. I take the generative lands of a lamb freshly killed and jound them into a pulp in a mortar; witli this I mix a teaspoonful or two if water and the result I filter through ine Swiss filtering paper. The fluid, slightly thicker than water, comes .hrough perfectly pure and limpid. The iltering must be carefully done, for if my shred or any part of the pulp were njected under a patient's skin it would "orm abscesses and do harm. The extract from a single lamb will e sufficient for a dozen injections. It loes not matter to what part of the body the application is made, but the most convenient place is under the kin of the forearm where the skin is omparatively slack. It would hardly ie safe to inject the fluid derived from body twenty-four hours after the kil- ing of the animal. The injection of jlood and the juice of beef into vasted patients has been common for many years, and it is well known that o inject the essence of decayed beef Tould kill the man. As-soon as the amb is slaughtered by the butcher no ime is wasted in pounding and filter- ng, and within an hour of the killing of the lamb the juice is circulating lirough the patient's veins and ming- mg with his blood. I began my experi- ments first on myself to assure myself fiat it was not dangerous to the pa- ient. Since then I have applied the lixir to several old gentlemen without leir knowing what it was. One man, bout sixty years of age, had had his rm so nearly paralyzed with rlieuma- ism that for nearly "a year he could not aise his hand to his liead. Soon after ie elixir was injected into the arm he vas able to wield it in any direction nd almost as vigorously as he had ver done. Up to the present my experiments ave been made without the patient's nowledge, but to-morrow I am going o begin treating a man in this way at is own request. Of course, it is too arly yet to draw any sweeping conclu- .ons from the result obtained, but as ar as 1 have gone the results are cer- tinly remarkable. AVhen I have con- nued my experiments longer I shall e able to draw conclusions with more onfidenee. Dr. Brown-Sequard's cal- ulation is that an injection once a lonth will suffice to keep a man twen- v or thirty years younger than he eally is." license as proper. The clerk reported that he had re- ceived luo copies of city charter, and Alderman AViegand moved that all city officials, the members of the board of public works and the local papers re- ceive a copy free, all others to pay 50 cents a copy. The bill for fees in case of Tollef Torgerson against city was referred to the linance committee and Alderman Knatvold. The clerk gave notice that the board 01 public works was organized and ready for business.

The State Fair has reached the owning point. This week the associ- lion has decided to put up purses mounting to SIO.OOU for ten trotting nd eleven running races, with hurdle nd cowboy dashes added. This sum f money will ensure the attendance of lebeat horses in the country. The ailroads have made a reduced rate of ne fare for the round trip, good from ept. 6th to Sept. 16th. The national uard of the state will give the timi- ng riot drill showing troops in action gainst a mob. Grand Army day will e devoted solely to the entertainment f old soldiers of the state. The horse- iceing contest has aroused a great egree of enthusiasm among the horse ioers of the state, everyone feeling mt he has a grand chance to win the nagnificent prizes offered. On AVed- esday Sept. llth the great producers' arade representing all the products f the state will take place before the rand stand. Probably one of the most ovel features of the fair will be the resence ot'a band of genuine vaqueros r cowboys from the'banks of the Kio rande. Dressed in tlieir picturesque ostumes and mounted on their wild orses they will give thrilling exhibi- ons of their life on the American and [exican plans. In all of its features ml especially those relating to agri- ultnre the State Fair of 188'J will sur- ass the efforts of past years. In no ne particular will the fair be so mark- dly a success as in its live stock dis- !ay, covering as it will the finest and Argest herd? of the Central and West- states and the famous breeding orses from France and England.

Mr. Richards moved to reconsider the resolution permitting the structure placed on Broadway for sale of pop- corn be rescinded. It was carried, AA iegand and Lowe voting against it. Mr. Knatvold moved that the parties keeping the structure on the street be required to move it. Mr. Hanson sec- onded it. Knatvold and Mr. President voted aye and Messrs. Kichards, AVie- gand and Lowe voted against it. Mr liichards moved that the structure be ordered moved in 15 days. Mr. Lowe moved to amend to make it 10 days, and the motion was earned, Messrs. AViegand and liichards voting against it. The question caused considerable discussion, and at times it was decid- edly hot. Mr. AViegand was the prin- cipal champion of the popcorn stand, and seemed willing to go on record as favoring the erection of small houses and stands on Broadway, provided only a license could be obtained. Pres- ident Hanson and Mr. Knatvold earn- estly favored immediate prohibition of such stands. Messrs. Lowe and Rich- ards compromised the matter by giving the existing stand permission to stay a certain time only. A matter which could have been e'nded in two minutes if all the aldermen had been free to carry out the law and enfore the rights of the public, consumed an hour, and then the council adjourned.

Bixby, editor of the Columbus (Neb.) Sentinel, is re- sponsible for the following rare gem of poetic truth: Hi there you merchants who pretend to be engaged in trade, who spend two- thirds of all your time just lounging in the shade; wake up and let the people know that you are still on earth, pre- pared to transact business here for every cent you're worth. A great phil- osopher who died some thousand years ago, and left a mighty fortune for his relatives below, declared as death ap- proached his door, "My son Assanias, judicious advertising is the keystone to success." These were the old man's parting died without a groan, and left his heir and only son in sadness there alone. His funeral was attended by a multitude next day, for be was liberal and just and no one went away who asked for alms and contributions for a village this man loved all men and treated everybody square. At least two thous- and people shed their tears upon his tomb, and visited the place each year when roses were in bloom. They reared above his resting place a granite monu- ment, which cost ten thousand dollars if it cost a single cent. Upon its pol- ished surface was engraved (no more or less) "judicious advertising is the keystone to success." His son survived him many years and nourished in his trade, and said he was indebted for every cent he made to the great prin- ciple observed by his lamented dad who always advertised the same if trade was good or bad; and in the busy season his store was swarming full, be- cause he advertised his goods when everything was dull. Since history re- peats itself the business man of sense, who knows success is not attained de- void of all expense, will publish to the sinful world by every means at hand that he is here transacting business at the same old stand; and by that means will show that he is liberal and the thoughtful man will always trade with those who when the winter time of life bedecks his head with snow and warns him that his stay is short in this cold world below, he too, can say, "Indeed I've found it true' you'd better advertis- ing is the keystone to success." it is All For Spoils.

If a plan can be, or has been, adopted that will put a stop to the discreditable wrangling and cross-purpose strife now in progress among the senators and representatives in Congress from Min- nesota, it would be a boom for which the people of the state would be hum- bly grateful.
