HI Health, Habltt and mode of Living Pen Portrait of the Sage of Gram erey Park French Wit and Humer. The Scheel Beard. The beard of directors of Lancaster school district met in common council chamber last evening. The following named members were present : Messrs. D. G. Baker, P. D. Baker, Coch ran, Eberman, Erismau, Evans, Harris, D. Ilartman, J. I. Hartman, Jacksen, John John seon, Levergood, Marshall, McCemsey, Mc Conomy, Morten, Reimensnyder, Rhoads, Richards, Samson, Schmid Slaymaker, Smeych, Snyder, Spurrier, Westliaeiler, Wilsen, C. Zecher, Gee. W. Zechcr, and Warfel president. The reading of the minutes and the re ports of the visiting committee was dis prescd with. Mr. Evans, from the finance committee, presented the following bills, which hav ing been examined and approved by the committee, were ordered te be paid : Lan caster gas company, for gas, $8.40; W. W. Ferris, historical chaits for high school $47 ; Henry Glazier, two leads et weed ; Daniel Appleton & Ce., for Henslowe's botanical chart $11.34 ; C. F. Eberman, services as secretary, $50 ; Lancaster city for use of water, $82.03 ; Jeseph Samson, brushes, $8.83 ; Edwin Boekmoyer, glaz ing, $3.20. Mr. Evans presented, also fiem the lin auce committee, the following resolution fixing the rate of tax for school pur poses : "HeseUed, That for the year commencing with the lirst day of June, 1880, the rate of taxation for school purposes in the Lan caster school district shall be assessed thicc mills en the ical and personal eitate of the district, and en all ether ob jects of taxation at the rate fixed by law ; and that te all persons who shall pay their taxes en or before the first day of August, iu said year, an abatement of five percent, shall be allowed, and after that date until the first date of September, following, the full amount will be required ; and te all taxes remaining unpaid at that time, five per cent, shall be added." The resolution was unanimously agreed te. Mr. Evans also picsented the following opinion by Samuel II. Reynolds, esq., rel ative te State Superintendent AVicker sham's refusal te draw his warrant for the amount of state appropriation due Lancas ter school district : Te Rebert A. Evans, A. J. Ehcrly and Dr. Henry Carpenter, Committee of Beard of Directors of Public Schools of Lancaster City : Gentlemen I have carefully examined the question you have submitted : ' Can Hen. James V. Wickcrsham, superintend ent of public instruction of the state of Pennsylvania, be compelled by mandamus te issue a warrant for the amount of the state appropriation due the school district of Lancaster city, which, for some reason known only te himself, he withholds ?' ' and have arrived at the conclusion that, under the laws of this commonwealth and the decisions of the supreme court having reference thereto, the school district is without remedy te compel the state super intendent te perform this ministerial duty. Prier te the adoption of the constitution of 1873, the powers of the supreme court, derived from the act of 1722, were ample te meet the exigencies of this case, and it is te be very much regretted that by the previsions of the new constitution the peo ple are deprived "of one of the highest forms of remedy essential te the interests of a republic." By the third section of the fifth article of the constitution the supreme court " shall have original jurisdiction in cases of injunction when a corporation is a party defendant, of habeas corpus, of mandamus te courts of inferior jurisdiction and of quo warrante as te all officers of the common wealth whose jurisdiction extends ever the state, but shall net exercise any ether original jurisdiction." Under this section the jurisdiction of the supreme court in mandamus is re stricted te courts of inferior jurisdiction within the state. Cem'th ex. rel. Butler vs. Hartrauft, governor, 27 P. F. S. 134. It being settled that the supreme court has no jurisdiction, have the courts of common pleas jurisdiction te issue writs of mandamus te state officers ? That the superintendent of public in struction is a state officer no one will pre tend te deny. He is appointed by the governor, under the 8th section of the 4th article of the constitution b3r and with the advice and consent of two-thirds of the senators for a general state purpose, aud the jurisdiction of his office extends throughout the commonwealth. An examination of the law shows that courts of common pleas never had the right te issue writs of mandamus te any state officers. Wolf vs. Cem'th 14, P. F. S., 252. The act of June 14, 1830, declares that they (courts of common pleas) " shall within their respective counties have the like powers with the supreme court te issue writs of mandamus te all officers and mag istrates, elected or appointed in and for the respective county, or in and for any townships, district or place within such county, and te all corporations being or having their chief place of business within such county." Their jurisdiction is limited te the cases mentioned in the said act of Assembly. Cem'th vs. Wickcrsham, W. N. C, vel. 7, page 205. The prevision et the new constitution te which we have referred, having abro gated the power which the supreme court once held for the protection of the people against the exercise of an arbitrary dis dis sentien or erroneous judgment without conferring it te any ether tribunal, the school district of Lancaster city must pa tiently await the action of the state super intendent, whose sense of duty we may hope will ere long compel him te obey the law. Upen this subject the common wealth is very much in need of some di rect legislation. Respectfully yours, Samuel H. Reynolds. Lancaster, April 27, 1880. Mr. Slaymaker, from the building com mittee, reported that Mr. Davis, the archi tect of the New Lemen street schoolhouse, was preparing working drawings of the same and would have them ready for the buildeis in about two weeks. On motion of Mr. J. I. Ilartman the rules recently drafted, for the government of the beard and the schools were referred back te the special committee with in structions te add such additional rules as may be necessary te define the duties and powers of the city superintendent." On motion of Mr. McCemsey two addi tional members were added te the com mittee en rules. The chair appointed jlessrs. Jlcuemsey and w usen. The president announced the visiting committees for the ensuing three months as fellows : Visiting Committees. Northeast Division Jehn W. Jacksen (chairman), Charles Schwebel, Jeseph Schmid, J. M.

Zecher, Daniel Smeych, A. K. Spur rier. Northwest Division Marriett Brosius (chairman), Alex. Harris, P. D. Baker, E. G. Snyder, Geerge Yeisley. A communication from Messrs. Perter & Coates relative te having Raub's arithme tic and ether of their publications intro duced into the Lancaster schools was re ferred te the book committee. A communication from Prof. Buehrle ac cepting the position of city superintendent, te which he was recently elected, was read. An invitation from the committee of Pest 84, G. A. R., te the beard te attend and participate iu the ceremonies of deco rating the soldiers' graves was read and accepted. The resignation of Miss Emma V. Leon Leen ard, first assistant in the East Orange street primary school, was presented and accepted. Miss Sarah Smith, second assistant, was promoted first assistant te fill the vacancy. Fer the position of second assistant all applicants were placed in nomination. A vote being taken resulted in the election of Miss Ilarkins, she receiving 18 votes te 12 cast for all ether candidates. Adjourned. m m Mr. Tildeii Sketched by One of His Friends. Fer the Intellieecer. Samuel J. Tilden is strong enough te get out of his bed and dress himself aud eat a hearty breakfast about eight o'clock every morning. He receives and talks with all his friends who call, from half-past eight te one or two o'clock. He often has dur ing that time from a half dozen te a score of callers with whom he discusses politics, law, literature and the gcneial news of the day. At one or two o'clock he gees down town and spends an hour or two, transact ing in that time enough business te tire out an ordinary hearty man He comes home, glances at a mass of correspondence, dictates answers te scores of letters, aud then gees out for an hour or two ride often en horseback. He returns and takes a nap, dresses for dinner, at which he always cutci tains a friend or two, and then re ceives callers or gees out te the theatie or for social visits. He rarely retires befere 11 o'clock and then usually reads himself te sleep. With all this he finds time net only te leek after the details of a half dozen law-suits for himself, but te give ad vice en important legal points te scores of clients. There is net a book of any value published in this country or England that he does net buy and glance at. Drep in en him when you will, if he is net otherwise engaged you will find him with a book. This is the ordinary routine of Mr. Tilden's life. I venture te say that there has net been a day for two years that has found him in bed after 8 o'clock in the morning. He may have been confined te tlie house by cold or threat trouble, but never anything mere serious, and yet he is net a strong hearty man. He has never been that. Frem infancy he has been troubled with ills that annoy if they de net kill. As for his having determined te decline being a candidate and te select his succes sor,! am sure that there is -no man living net even his own brother, who has his un limited confidence who is authorized te make any such statement. That he firmly believes he can have the nomination at Cincinnati if he wants it, I am morally cer tain. Whether or net he wants it I frankly confess I have never been able te decide. One thing is quite certain he don't lay awake at night thinking about it. G. New Yerk, May 4, 1880. Paris Wit and (jessip. Translated and Adapted Frem the Pari Journals. At a hotel in Berdeaux the garcon com ing into a traveler's room in the morning asks him if he has slept well. " Slept? I should say net," was the reply ; "a mouse kept up such a racket all night that I couldn't close my eyes." "Is it possible?" said the garcon;" "and we are se careful here. I assure you it is the first time " "Oh, nevermind; I never can sleep well in a strange bed. The little fellow rather amused me than otherwise." An hour afterward the gentleman, who was going away, went te the office te pay his bill. "Hew much?" "Eight francs." "Eight francs for a chamber en the third fleer for one night ? It's preposter ous." " Monsieur has apparently forgotten the mouse which amused him last night." The late rigorous winter in Paris did much damage te the Jardin des Plantcs. The menagerie there has lest within the past few months a hippopotamus which cost 30,000 francs, a bear which cost 29,000 francs, two liens which cost 3,000 francs, five gazelles, a panther, and two swans, net te mention many kangaroos, antelopes and deer. A sum of C0,C00 francs is te be expend ed en the transformation of the morgue. The bodies will be preserved exactly in the state in which they are discovered, for sev eral months, by remaining iu an artificial atmosphere of compressed air, cooled te a fixed temperature. Y., a jelly geed fellow, but a terrible Bohemian, explains : "It is only necessary te have two cravats, a white and black. After awhile the white is se dirty that it is black, and the black is worn white. Yeu replace the one with the ether, and there you are again." . They say in America that it is absurd te build the Isthmus canal, because ships can be easily carried ever en a railroad. In the future then you may expect te hear some such dialogue as this : "What sort of a passage, captain?" Vi.lmll "Stenns?" " Oh no, but we ran off the track in Panama." " Come along," said D. te Z, ; " let us go te the club and have a game of bacca rat." " Ne, I never touch a card." " What, you a loafer, drunkard, liber tine, and de net play?" " What would you ? Nene of us are per fect." They begged him te sing. He was a young man intended for the stage and he had a charming voice. He obliged the company. A lady from the country could net conceal her enthusiasm. " Oh, what a beautiful voice ! Hew old are you, may I ask ?" " Certainly ; I am just twenty-two." " Only twenty-two? Well I can tell you without flattery, you sing like a man of forty." A great pianist was playing. It was ob served that a lady listened te him with the most profound melancholy. " Yeu seem fatigued," murmured a fa cetious friend in her ear. " I ? eh no, net much ; I have schooled myself te take my pleasures patiently." It is a wedding. The lady is young, amiable, pretty aud lively. The gentleman is old, ugly and stupid. " But he will make her very happy," said the bride's mother : "widowhood will become her tee." JEWELEJCS.
