The contnict is regarded as very udvwnltigeous to the city und al- though its term Is only for one year Mayor Clarke has received assurances from Ihe hospital authorities that there will be ho objection to a renewal when Ihe time expires. The piilienls have Leeu transferred from the Cily Hospital with the ex- ception of one [niElLMit.

Al- hough it conies rather earlier than sual it will be hailed as the advent of Ipring, and if the weather is al ail pro- Ditious there will be a showing of sum- er costumes at church and on the Ireet. Not always, however, is it suf- clently warm or pleasant to permit f the usual Easter parade aud It may be that this year thesprlug display iiay have to be postponed. The seasou KB been so backward aud Easter comes early that there has hardly been the sual big business In Ihe stores, but nder the circumstances trade has been aa good as could be expected. There will be special services iu all the Christian churches tomorrow aud special Easter music will be furnished by the choirs, iu some cases augment- ed for Ihe occasion. The alteudauce should be large if the weather Is propi- tious.

Thorudike of this cily has been given a verdict In the Superior Court in Tauiilun for In hla suit agaiusl William H. Dowd of that city. 1'he case was rather out of tbe ordi- nary.. Mr. Thorudike claimed to have jurchased empty starch barrels of de- 'endant to ship fish built developed hat Ibe barrels bad contained oxide of zinc and the Hah were spoiled. The necessity for tome nllleiiil with jurisdiction over the food supply of tbe city has developed this week, and the outcome will undoubtedly be a law. suit. A well known umrki-t mun bought tome betf from one of the wholesale houses und when It bad been delivered to his market he detected n noticeable odor which it is supposed to have acquired by Leinjr. huug in an ice box where Hie air was not pure, lu fuct the muikelman claims to have noticed tbe odor In Ihe plant of tbe wholesale house. There were also some bad places ou the beef but not so much that tbe meal, without the odor, would have been refused. Tbemarketman got Into communi- cation wilh tbe malinger of the whole- sale house and demanded that the beef betaken buck. This wus pereuiplorjly refused. Then some cily ollicial was sought to decide whether such meat was allowed to be sold. Mayor Clarke WHscalled into consultation-as well as a veterinary and the United Slates in- spector. Tbe inspector slated tbut tic had no jurisdiction over meat within tbe Sttite. but In reply to n question by the manager of the wholesale bouse said that he would allow the meat lobe shipped oul of the bUle provided that it was tri.....led uu. The controversy ended just where it began, tbe whole- saler refusing to receive it back ami tlie retailer decliuiug lo accept It and sell It to his customers. Apparently Ihe out- come will have to be n lawsuit. But the point of Ihe whole matter of interest to Ihe city is the ju- risdiction in tuch matters. Mayor Clarke desires that there be'an ollicial with full-power to inspect all food sup- plies and condemn any that may-bem a dangerous condition, Ihe officer to be subject to tbe direction of tbe Board of Health. An ordinance providing for aucb an oHicial will be submitted to tbe next meeting of Ibe representative council for their consideration. for Rural Progress. Mr. W. J. Merrall, father of Jlr. A. E.
