Editor Light i sanitation is of the utmost importance to every City and is now neglected with impunity. Healthfulness has always been one of the chief attractions of ban Antonio and it would do her an irreparable injury to lose this attraction through the neglect of sanitation. The several sanitary inspectors should thoroughly examine every lot in the City and have All trash and rubbish removed. The heat of the weather will steadily convert these piles of trash and rubbish into hot Beds of disease and cause them to Send Forth malarial exhalations to Poison the air that we must breath. Prevention is much better than cure As Well As far cheaper. Every citizen should set to work to have his lot placed in perfect cleanliness. Sanitation after disease shall have broken out is like Locking the stable door after the horse has been stolen out of it. By All Means let ban Antonio be placed in a state of thorough sanitation without delay. Can to get away. Improve our sidewalks. Editor Light my recollection is that the City government has at various times ordered sidewalks to be Laid Down on a number of streets in our City but that property owners have neglected to comply with these orders. This condition of thing ought not to exist. No governments can be properly run without system and method. All orders to Lay Down sidewalks should be enforced promptly and firmly. The Council should ascertain where property owners have neglected to Ley Down sidewalks in compliance Wlton its orders and at once take the Neces Sory Steps to enforce its orders. A business administration is always successful. Nothing is More comfortable in a City than excellent sidewalks and Good Street Crossings. Besides they Render a City pleasant and attractive to visitors As Well As impart neatness and tidiness to a pity which is a great Desideratum. Let the laying lows of sidewalks be looked after. X. M.

From the week one of the most interesting questions relating to our planet says prof. G. P. Serviss is that of its Interior Constitution. Observations made in deep mines and brings indicate that the temperature increases As we go downward at the average rate of one degree Fahr. For every 66 feet of descent so that if this rate of increase continued the temperature at the depth of a mile would be More than Ioos higher than at the surface and at the depth of forty Miles would be so High that everything including the metals would be in a fluid condition. This View of the condition of the Interior has been adopted by Many who hold that the crust of the Earth on which we dwell is like a Shell surrounding the molten Interior. But calculations based upon the tidal effects that the attraction of the Sun and Moon would have upon a Globe with a liquid Interior have led bar William Thomson Aud others to assert that such a condition is impossible and that the Interior of the Earth must be solid and exceedingly rigid to its very Center. To the objections that the Phenomena of volcanoes contradict the Assumption of a solid Interior it is replied that unquestionably the heat is very great deep beneath the surface and that reservoirs of molten Rock exist under volcanic districts but that taking the Earth a Interior As a whole the pressure is so great that the tendency to liquefaction caused by the heat is Over balanced thereby. The whole question however is yet an open one. Days is allowed you to take advantage of our a precedent offerings in boys furnishings especially in boys clothing shoes hats Etc.
