energetically declared she had heard so
much about Kemerer Ic Swartz that she
desired to go there. The reault was
that they were ushered into such a
bewildering display that the girl was
puzzled at tlrst now to select. Hut she
soon yielded to the seductiveness of u

set lu oak (antique Mulsh) that would
have done credit to old Antiquity her

room set with all accessories, a com
plete kitchen outfit, aud dldu't forget
a most convenient aud ornamental
writing desk for "Hubby" Charles.
"A pretty good Btart." said the old
man, "and now we'll go to Jas. Walp's

cooking utensils. Her purchases In
cluded a fine New Broadway runge and
everything else necessary to a complete
kitchen outfit. This firm also makes a
speciality of plumbing,
"These house-fixings remind me,"
said tue old gentleman, "that you
haven t got your dishes yet. The most
famous stock in extent, uuallty and
completeness is at Geo. 11. Enztan's."

told what au array of tableware Pollv

At this point, somewhat to Charles'
confusion, the old man indulged in a
halt serious criticism of his personal
appearance. "You are decidedly olf

we'd better go down to E. O. Zern's
clothlug house. After Charles had

"I declare, Uucle," exclaimed Charles
as they reached the street, "there goes
a handsome phaeton; I must have oue
like that for the girl." Get It rbrht
here," sententiously said the old man.

retire from the chair as uresidiug ofll
cer as bo hod no desire to obstruct the
bustm ss of council or invalidate any
measures that might be adopted, lie
would however call the meeting to or
der iu order to faclitate matters for
further organization. This was tbe
cue for action for supremacy between
Gabel aud Kuntz. Mr. Gabel graceful
ly suggested that the burgess should
continue to preside until borough at
torney Heydt would officially notify
councilor the supreme court ruling.
Mr. Moulthrop concurred with tho
sdggestiou, but the burgess did not
desire it aud would step down aud out.
UOUlicllnsau Kuntz, or the t. w ..thought ,
it advisable that the matter should be
settled at once, and be moved that I. i
S. Koch act as temporary chairman, it1
was seconded by Moulthrop and car
ried without dissent, Mr. Koch took
the chair. Dr. Bower was made secre
tary pro tem. Nominations were made:
B. J. Kuntz was named by Moulthrop,
and Held named Gabel. The chairman
named Moulthrop and Marvlu Kuntz
tor tellers, rne nrst two ballots were
for Kuntz. then one droDiied for Jesse.
Strangers present thought Gable had
no show when two more ballots were
counted for Kuntz Ben even thought
about getting up a smile, but wheu the
next fourriroppec forGabel lie changed
his mind and moved the election be
made unanimous. It was seconded by
Moulthrop and carried. It whs a con
test for supremacy and the result
iroves Gabel the shrewdest diplomat.
Cuntz (t.w.) then moved that the busi
ness of the previous couucil meeting
lie ratified, Seconded by Koch and so
agreed. J. L. Gabel for the oommlttee
on "peddler license reported progress,
it was accepted. The ordinance draft
ed was then laid ou tbe table, Kuntz
(f.w.) for the committee on rules, re
ported progress. Burgess Zeru re
ported that himself and secretary hud
written to state repiesentative iliery
aud to seuator Rapsber relative to bill
110 authorizing the establishment of
board of healths in towns, and that
they would support the measure, Mr.
Beckendorf is excavating at bis prop
erty on the cor. of '2nd aud Coal, He
was present aud stated that he had
dumped the excavations into the street
knowing that tbe borough needed ma
terial for filling in purposes be offered
it as a gift if they would cart it away.
Kuntz (f.w.) said it would be setting a
bad precedent to take this ground in
that way others would dump excava
tions luto the streets aud expect couu
cil to cart it away. Kuntz's opposition
made Henry mad aud he went for him
with a sharp stick until called to time
by president Gabel. It didu't make
any difference, Henry had lived here
54 years and he wasn't going to be im
posed on. Dr. Smith was piesent aud
wanted permission to build a bay win
dow to his residenco ou Bankway. T.
A. Snyder was present and asked for
the grade of south Main Lane. He
wants to lav a pavement. He also de
sires to ruu his refuse water into the

Bills were then presented. The tlrst
one was Carbon Advocate. Drill tinu an
uual statement as per old, aiu.tx!. This
was objected t by Kuutz (f.w). The
Press, In which Kuutz is apparently
Interested, had bid K0. It was made
to appear that the bid was for printing
tbe poor statement also. It was a pre
pared game evidently. Kuntz foolish
ly persisted that tbe bid included both
statements and that the borough had
always paid for both. This compelled
the Advocate representative to once
more prove him a liar before the public
by showing from the poor statement
that the overseers had always paid for
their own printing and that that body
is separate aud distinct from council lu
every particular and that likewise the
statements are separate and distinct
Reference to the minute sustained the
argument as to the payments of both
bodies. Mr. Kuntz then desired to
know why the price was 911 lowertban
last year. It was stated that this was
the result of a bid the statemeat hav
ing been awarded the lowest bidder,
but that heretofore regular rates were
charged. The Advocate offered to pay
$5 to Kuntz if he would prove anything
I to the contrary but ho had nothing to
say. Mr. Watson, of the I'ress, ap
peared to have been groomed and with
out a change of his bland, childlike
countenance, said he thought it meaut
both statements. Had he known dif
ferently he no doubt would have printd
it for nothing he's a recoguized goril
la. The president left the bill go over
by a desire of the Advocate. Johu Hauk
had a bill for t3 before council, This
waa for damages be had broken an
axle on one of the numerous ruts ou

that the bill be laid under the table. It
