In answer to many requests for advice from health officers and others in-lcrested in the matter. Dr. <\ N. Ile*
I Witt, secretary of the state hoard of health, has issued a memorandum on the duties of local Ikjhrds »»f health under the law for the inspection, within LO hours ut their slaughter,of all cattle,
I sheep and swine to be killed for human food. The following extracts thin-! from will no doubt prove of general ! interest;
“T he sanitary intention of the law.
To prevent the slaughter of cattle, sheep and swine which are not healthy I and in suitable condition to be slaugh-j ti red for human food, by an inspection I of the living animal, within 21 hours of its slaughter. The inspection is not of the meat, but of the animal, not more than 24 hours before it is killed.
When (mist the inspection Is* made? Within 24 hours before the slaughter of the animal.
Where is the inspection to be made? Not specified, and prest!nobly therefore I where the applicant asks to have it made.
Local hoards of villages and cities would further a good purpose if they could concentrate the butchers into one place for killing and preparing the meat, and thereby diminish the trouble and expense of the inspection. This they may do under i hapter 222, Laws of I HHS.
Tor whom is the inspection made? Persons applying for such inspection.
Who makes the inspection or persons appointed by boards of health of cities, villages. Intr oiigtis and townships.

Benting apparently some believing that gas will be long. Tnt' Well is down over 2,500 feet I and the drills have passed through various strata of limestone arid sandstone, and have encountered salt springs. Limestone has been encountered under the red sandstone, notwithstanding the prediction of the state geologist that such would not he the case. Iii the geological report of Washington county Mr. Winched .states that the Trenton limestone probably runs through the county and extends into Chisago county, hut it is deeply covered by the dritt except in the eastern part of Woodbury and the western part of Afton. At 2,(HIO feet. however, limestone hasbeen encountered mixed with sandstone, the formation being similar it is said to the gas rock at Erie and Buffalo.
In Pennsylvania the uppercut) meas-I tires are found Iii the uppermost form-I ahum of the Devonian period and th* gas and oil occur in the deepest straw*.
I Flic gas-bearing rock is found at from J I,MKI to 2,(JOO feet and sometimes deeper, far below the Pittsburg coal beds.

Ail the conditions may appear to he favorable, but the existence of ... ... fissures or cracks in the rocky strata A person between the belts of vegetable and the local I mineral decomposed strata and the gas sand is surely indicative that the gas once existing in the gas repository escaped, lf the upper measures rn* are cracked the gas will

Improved Champion Mower.-
THE CHAMPION is the cniy Mower on which the pitman never wears out, the knife heel never breaks, the gear: never wear oui nor break; the only Mower on which the gears run slowly and make no noise; the bar can be stood straight up and the knife will run freely even in that position; tho only Mower on which ail lost motion can b? token up on pitman, gearing and boxing ; the only Mower on which the guards will outwear three sets cf the cheap guards used on other mowers, and never break nor get out cf line; the only Mower on which the slightest forward motion of the master wheel stalls the knife; the only Mower on which the motion is transmitted directly frcn: the master whee! to the knife pitman withe, t ..ny joints lo wear loose find rattle, and where ALL THE POWER is applied to cutting the grass, r«cr.2 fating wasted on loose joints or fast runnir.<3 nearing; the only Mowepthat baa no frame work or pitman hanging down in front to run into obstructions or intel *8re with the cut grass; the only Mowc-’that has no clutch 0 to boiher hy slipping out of gear, and it can be put in qsar at any pcint without backing.
THE IMPROVED CHAMPION has tass than one-third the emend cf gearing that other Mowers have, and the pitman o.n;l ifs warranted not to breck or wear ivy*. Hus Mower is so rn c1 to all others that an examination will convince any farmer much more money than any other.

Territory of inspectors? Coextensive j with that of the hoard appointing rices j them.
Must th** inspector he a veterinary I surgeon ? 'l ite law makes no such pro-! vison and so any one whom the local j boud of health believes competent and j elects may serve.
Should the inspector report regularly j to the local board appointing them ?
I As agents of the board for a special purpose they should be required to tile copies of certificates and memoranda of all official acts with the hoard as it may signify in its instructions. In no other way can the board be aware of the working of this department of its work for which it is as responsible as for atty other performed by deputy.
Form of certiticate to be prescribed by local boards for the use of inspectors? The law’ provides that each certificate to he made in duplicate shall contain a statement to the effect that the animal or animals inspected, describing them as to kind and sex, were at the date of such inspection free from all indications of disease, apparently in good health, and in good condition to be slaughtered for human food; beyond this the hoard shall regulate the form of certilicate to be issued to such inspectors.
How is the inspector to bt* paid? By fees to bt* paid by th*- persons applying for such inspection.
Who determines the fee to be paid? rite local hoard of health who shall regulate the fees, which shall be no greater than are actually necessary to defray the costs of the inspection provided in section 2 of the law.
Are any local boards of health exempt from the appointment of inspectors, as provided in this act? The law says, it shall be the duty of the local boards of health of the several cities, villages, boroughs and townships with in this state. So none are exempt.
Can any cattle, sheep or swine be slaughtered for human food in this state without this inspection ? No.
Does the law apply to individuals wishing to slaughter their own animals for tile use of themselves or their families ? 11 excepts 110 one.
Has the state hoard of health any discretionary power in the matter? No Does the law affect previous legislation for the control of infectious diseases of animals or the sale of diseased meats? No. There is no clause repealing previous legislation, nor do the provisions of the act conflict with previous laws.”
of country, and it has bet a most proli-flc in the vicinity of I Pittsburg, and at Findlay, Ohio. The supply of natural s gas in the Ohio valley, however, is un - (Ioubtedly failing. It has been criminal-* ly wasted in enormous quantities, and I the wells are here and tin re gradually One j diminishing the value of flow and some
appointed j have ceased activity. 'The reservoirs are enormous to yield from 12,000.000 to 20.000,<*jo or more cubic feet a day; but the gas is running oft surely, leaving the reservoirs empty, and it required millions of years doubtless to fill them with the volatile parts of the decomposition of old organic formations which we call natural gas. There is a theory of continuous j ew formation the hydro-car bo nizat.on of tin1 water which seeps to the. bowels of the earth from the surface; but this is much more of an unverified hypothesis than that of the joint origin of the gas and oil in the deepest strata of the Devonian i>eriod from tho decomposition of animal and vegetable organic matter.
The experiment at Stillwater is of great importance. If natural gas is found in large quantities the industrial results will he enormous, even if the product is exhausted in fifteen years. The geological results of the bore will be of deep interest, as it is likely to he the deepest well drilled in the state.

How to Make Money.
To save money is to make money. The common way of washing clothes on a washboard is growing out of favor fast. The Eclipse Washer will do the work better, in less time, and with no wear to the clothes; the savings will iii a short time buy a machine. Used by hundreds of families in this county alone, a recommend of this wonderful machine is unnecessary, S. Iieinsberg warrants them for two years.
A Sound Legal Opinion.
K. Bainbridge, Munday Esq., County Atty., Clay Co., Texas, says: ‘‘Have used Electric Hitters wit ti must happy results. My brother also was very low with Malarial Fever and .Jaundice, but was cured tty timely use of this medicine. Ain satisiied Electric Hitters saved Ids life.”
Mr. I). I Wilcoxson, of Horse Cave, Ky., adds a like testimony, saying: He positively believes he would have died, had It not been for Electric Hillers.

Mrs. Mary A. Livermore’** Famous Book My Story of the War.’
In tit is new and superbly illustrated work, the world-famous Mary A. Livermore narrates her personal work arid experiences as a hospital and field nurse during the war of the rebellion. We do not know when Too pages have given us more genuine pleasure. Mrs. Livermore spent four years as a nurse in hospitals, camps, at the front and on the battle-field, and these four years were packed with pathos, glory and sacrifice probably never paralleled in tne life of any other woman. Her narrative presents a vivid inner picture of the 1comarily aide of th* liar, more especially of lier own work and thrilling experiences, with many pathetic and humorous Incidents poll raying the lights and shadow.sof hospital life. These are described as only an eye witness and a tender-hearted woman could describe them.
What a wonderful work she did. How heroic lier labors, how thrilling lier experience in those dark years. It is a story never to In* forgotten. When she first entered upon her hospital career a deathly faintness came over her, but she nerved herself for the work that had to be done and soon became accustomed to it. Never again wert' her nerves disturbed by hospital sights and scenes. For four years she held herself in iron

Owing to the necessary absence of several aldermen Friday evening, no session of the council was held, and th* same was adjourned t ing. Mayor 4Vi Ik Rison was prt anti req nested consideration of the I sprinkling and several other matters, which seemed to be important. A petition asking street sprinkling was presented, It contained the names of 46 abutting property owners on the streets proposed to Im sprinkled, 16 refusing or neglecting to sign. City Attorney Morgan explained the provision of the new charter relating to sprinkling, it being necessary for at least one-half of the -property owners to petition for sprinkling. It appearing under the new charter t hat the city must have a I>oard of public works to be appointed by the judge of the district court, to make the assessments for street improvements, including street sprink-link. it was decided that the matter would have tit be fixed by such board.
It is necessary for the mayor to request the judge to appoint a board of three citizens, not city officers. The powers and duties of such board were discussed at considerable length.
I he petition for sprinkling was granted, and two bids were thereupon opened, aa follows: Farnsworth & Ed-waitis at $83.(0 per month, P. II. McGovern and A. Al. Anderson at $85.00 per month. In each case th** bidders agreed to furnish water mid do the sprinkling, the city to furnish the same appliances as last year, the same streets to ne sprinkled as heretofore. Farnsworth & Edwards asked the right to move the water tank to the electric light works. Sureties on their bond were L. .I. Thomas and I). N. Batea, those of McGovern dc Anderson were E. 4V. Murphy and o. Knud son, .lr Mr. Knatvoid moved that the contract be aw arded to Farnsworth & Edwards, they being the lowest bidders, on their agreeing to return the tank and other property of the city to the place where it now is, at the end of their contract, if required, the same to be in as good condition as when they Lake it. Sprinkling to commence forthwith. The motion was unanimously adopted, iii**
Contract and the proper bond to be submitted at th*1 next meeting of the council. Messrs. Morin and Knatvoid, committee on examination of annual statements of the tre.asurer and clerk reported that they were correct and their report was approved.
A letter was read from State Auditor Braden stating that $600 had been appropriated by the legislature for the Minding of the bridge north of the Dec- farm, and that the game would be paid over to the city when vouchers were furnished him that that amount had been expended ort the bridge. The matter was laid over to prepare the necessary vouchers.
The street committee was instructed to do the grading on the west and north side of court house square for an 8-foot sidewalk to be laid by the county.
The bond of V. Gillrup, assessor, for $5000, with AV. A. Morin and M. I Johnson as sureties, was approved.
The bond of A. Af. Gilbert as deputy assessor was declined, as the same should be given to the assessor.
Boud of 0. D. Marl eft for $500 with L. I). Smith and Geo. Drommerhausen as sureties was approved.
Bond of F. A. Johnson for $500 with W. 4V'. Johnson and G. Gulbrandson as sureties was approved.

We regard this splendid book as a wholly unique work, for It presents the womanly or what may very appropriately be termed the heavenly ride of flu war. and this has never hitherto been written. It lifts the curtain and shows how heroic and devoted and blessed her work was. It is full of the deepest pathos, the richest humor, the most touching tales, the most stirring anecdotes and incidents, ami through the whole runs the story of the adventures and striking experiences tit its illustrious author. Stranger stories are here told than romance ever dreamed of, every one of them drawn from real life by a woman’s hand. In every chapter she weaves in anecdote after anecdote, incident after incident, story after story, and the reader’s attention is held breathless to the end of the volume. Should every other u>ok on the war be blotted out of existence this one would completely reflect the spirit ami work of the women of the North. It reading it our eyes were often tilled with tears; at oilier times we were convulsed with laughter at its rich humor Such a work by so eminent un author, at whose feet hundreds of thousands have sat and listened in admiration ami wonder, whose power, wisdom, influence and fame are now world-wide, is the literary event of our times.
Hut the illustrations! An able critic recently said, “This la the most richly embellished work ever published in America.’ We endorse this opinion. There are splendid Iteel-plate portraits 01 famous nurses of Union soldiers, ami many plates illustrating hospital scenes and thrilling incidents In a woman’s army life. No newspaper description can do these costly plates justice. They must be seen to be appreciated. There are also splendid fae simile plates of famous old battle-11 aga, from photographs and paintings made from the original flags, printed in sixteen colors from 128 engraved stones. They show ail the colors, tints, blood-staius, rents, shot-holes and splintered staffs exactly as they appear in the original flags. As we look at them It is hard to believe that the real flags are not before us. Even the lettering and inscriptions are perfectly reproduced In gold. The story of each flag is told with pathetic incidents attending the death of eolor-bearers who died under their folds.
This grand volume has no competitor, and we do not believe it can have a rival, lf we speak warmly of the book it is because It richly deserves it. It it sold only by agents, and is meet ing With an enormous sale. Agents who introduce a work of such sterling merit ought to be cordially welcomed. We believe that the best w ay to keel* out poor books is tty introducing good ones, ami a netter ami more absorbingly interesting and thrilling work than tills lias certainly never been brought to our notice. It is rarely that one can speak in terms of such unqualified praise of any !>ook.
Put it into your hollies, ll will Im* read over aud over again by old ami young.vvlth increasing pleasure ami lasting profit, ami will be prized by alt. You can, in our opinion, much better afford to dispense with a dozen oilier books (ban not possess tliis. Every subscriber will consider tile price of it “a charity to himself.”

iii favor of the following localities for 12 electric lights, if they are contracted for; Six as now located, one at Hewitt’s corner, one at Dwight’s corner, one at Lukins’ corner, one at jail corner, one at Thompson’s or Annis’ corner, and one at Mrs. Coyne’s corner on Broadway.
Farnsworth & Edwards proposed to furnish arc lights of 1,200candle power as follows: Twelve for one year at
$7.5(J per month for each lamp, the terms and conditions being same as former contract. For a ti tree year’s contract the rate to be $7.00 for each lamp. Mr. Edwards stated that the six present lights were run at a loss and that ten or twelve are necessary to balance the power of the dynamo. He said that it would cost $500 to make the change for the increased number.
The electric lighting matter was, after considerable discussion as to price, location and desirability of lights laid over until next meeting.
A petition of T. E. Sehleuder and others to have the alley east of Coleman’s lumber yard graded was referred to the street committee.
On motion of Air. Morin, bids are to be submitted for official printing at the next meeting. Adjourned.
