Appropriation No. 49
876,216 83 6M,415
In the estimate for the Bureau of Fire the
purchase of another hook and ladder truck to
cost 13.500 is included: also the remodeling, re
pairing and improving of No. 1 engine bouse,
to cost $3,750. No. 6 to cost 53,500, and No. 8 to
cost S4.0S3 68. The Item of horses Is put down
at 13,1)00, but on this sublect the. report says:
"This item will be credited on account of sink
ing fund, with several thousand dollars that
willle derived from the sale of horses, as
there are a number of horses that are worn out
that It will be to the interest of the city to sell."
No provision is made ln the estimate for the
proposed office of Fire Director.
THE FIBE DIRECTOR.
In speaking of the matter the Chief said that
while he bellevedthere wai a necessity for a
man in that position he did not believe that
Councils would favor its creation this year,
and besides there were other things that were
more imperative, such as a fire and patrol boat
for the rivers. If Councils saw fit to recognize
the necessity for ths fire boat a special appro
priation would have to be made for that pur
pose. A lot for a fire engine house in the
Thirty-fifth ward, to cost 82,600, Is another
feature of the Fire Bureau estimate, .the same
being according to an ordinance already
passed. There are ordinances before Councils
now lor the purchase of similar lots in the
Thirty-first and Thirty-second wards, but Mr.
Brown thinks if Councils want them they must
"be specially provided for In the appropriation.
Other items of the fire bureau are 2,500 for a
chemical engine, $5,600 for hose and fire ex
tinguishers, and $1,100. each for two new bose
carriages. The item of salaries for the entire
Fire Bureau foots up $175,310 18.
Of the appropriation for the Police Bureau
the report states: "If the ordinance now pend
ing before Councils for 25 additional policemen
be passed, the appropriation to the Police Bu
reau would nave xo oe increaaeu ,9i. i tv
meet theiraalarJea." Among the items for this
tmreatrareffaooorortbe completion of o. 4

'ing No. 3 patrol station; 2,500 for repairs to
station hooses:3.104 for tent of Central station,
Nos. 1, 4 and 7 patrol stables; the item of sala
ries foots up 1255,607 50.
BIG ELECTBICAL CHANGES.
The Bureau of Electricity estimate includes
the replacing of 38. old fire alarm boxes at $100
each, and supplying 15 new ones at 1125 each;
also the "purchase of b patrol boxes and booths
at a cost of 225 each; $4,600 is asked for, to keep

Bureau $7,856, slaking a total of $11,113 20. As
stated in the introductory letter to the Mayor,
It the item of lighting is not included in the
appropriation of tne Department of Public
'works, this sum will have to be added to the
total of the Public Safety appropriation, mak

manity in the shape of a confidential health
pamphlet, fully unfolding the treatment in
a manner so clear as to be easily under

Dr. Hall, and the regular application of the
treatment will conquer the most stubborn
cases of piles, constipation, dyspepsia, loss

heart disease, incipient consumption, dia
betes. Bright's disease of the kidneys, rheum
atism, fevers, inflammation of lungs or other

An Expert on Influenza Expatiates
AH EPIDEMC THAT IS SPORADIC.
Here Are All the Symptoms : Hare Toa
A JiELIABLE PAKACBA 1 GIYEN.
Dr. Byron Clark, A. M., M. D., Professor
of Theory and Practice of Medicine in the
Edectic College of the City of New York,
and an expert on influenza, is at the Sev
enth Avenue Hotel.
The doctor is a distinguished-looting gen
tleman of the old school. He wears a high
hat of the crush order, a suit of broadcloth,
with the coat cut a la cutaway, and a collar
several inches in height He is a portly
looking gentleman, and when at home lives
at No. 107 "West Ninety-eighth street
New York City. Two or three times a year he
visits the larger cities throughout the country
and treats persons suffering from chronic dis
eases. He has not visited Pittsburg for nearly
a year, hut while here yesterday called upon
about 20 patients. While on a trip throughout
the country his son. Homer L. Clark, teacher
of physical diagnosis in the same college! takes
the place of bis father as Professor of Theory
WHAT THE VISIT EETEALED.
Dr. Clark was encountered in the corridor of
the hotel last evening by a Dispatch repre
sentative. When asked what he had been
doing in Pittsburg he said:
"Just come Tip to my room, young man, and I
will show you what I have been doine. I have
visited about 20 patients to-day and prescribed
for as many more, who are suffering from
The interior of the doctor's room might be
aptly described as being en dishabille. Pack
ages of medicine, opened 'and unopened, were
scattered all about the room.
"To give you some Idea of what a medical
practice may amount to, I will show you this,
said the doctor, as he opened a journal and ex
hibited the names and the number of. persons
to whom he bad prescribed since the 27th of
last March until December 23. The whole
number aggregated 6,703, or an average of IS
per day, excepting, of course, the days on
which he lectured.
"Now about this influenza which has spread
over Europe, said the Doctor. It is not new by
any means. We have It constantly in our
midst, but at periods of every few years it
goes like a whirlwind over the country. It is
not dangerous by any means, except to the
very young and the aged. It is carried from
place to place by bacteria, and I do not doubt
but that in a few weeks it will be
ALL OVEB THIS COUNTBY.
"If you newspaper men do not scare the peo
ple into taklnglt I do not anticipate any seri
ous trouble. Here is a book which I consider
among the highest authorities.' It was pub
lished in 1837 by E. CHughes, late demonstra
tor of clinical medicine in the Jefferson Medi
cal College of Philadelphia. It is entitled
"Hughes' Compend of Practice." in which be
describes the symptoms of the influenza as fol
lows: The onset Is sudden, with a chill, followed by
rever, tne temperature' reaenrag- iui- to u, a
quick compressible pulse, and severe shooting
pains In the -eyes, frontal sinuses. Joints and
muscles. The chill and rever Is rapidly followed
by chilliness along the spine, wltn pains In the
throat, or coarseness, deafness, coryza, sneezing,
watery eyes, and a very irritating cough, some
times becoming bronchial. The tongue Is furred,
there Is' anorexia, epigastric distress, nausea,
vomiting:, and oflen diarrhoea.
"The complications are often lobar or catar
rhal pneumonia, which add to the gravity of the
attack. The cough may outlast the disease
"The following is given as a panacea for the
trouble: Quinine, 2 to 4 grains: Morphia, 1-12 of
grain: laurel water. 1 dram. Take every four
to six hours.
"That Js one of the best prescriptions I know
of," said the doctor, "andlwouldreconimendit
to all who are seeking relief from the scourge,
if such it may be called. There Is very little
serious danger to be apprehended, although it
may result seriously to persons who are af
flicted with catarrh or asthma."
Within which Hostetter's Stomach Bitters
performs its mission of preventing and curing
disease are well nigh measureless. Northland
South America. Europe, Australia, and the
islands 'of the Caribbean and Pacific are in-
f eluded in this area. Wherever malaria, the
universal Scourge, is found, there the bitters is
the recognized specific, as it is also for dys
pepsia, rheumatism, liver and kidney com-,
plaints and constipation.

We All Use the Banner.
There is no baking powder comparable to
the old reliable "Banner" Baking Powder,
which has been used in many of our very
best families for nearly a quarter of a cen
tury. Amateur bakers, and even quite
small children bake delightful cakes with it.
Take one quart rich cream, four table
spoonfuls powdered sugar, two teaspoonfuls
extract of vanilla; place this in a vessel
packed with chopped ice; allow it to
thoroughly chill, then beat (Dover egg
beater) into this two teaspoonfuls gelatine
that has been dissolved in two tablespoon
fuls sweet milk. Prepare your cake as fol
lows: Take' the whites of eleven eggs, beaten
BtiS, one and one-half teacups granulated
sugar, measuredafter sifting: beat the sugar
gradually, also the yelks of six eggs and one
teaspoonful extract of orange: stir into this
one teacupful flour, measured alter sifting
four times, having mixed through the dry
flour one measure "Banner Baking Pow
der." Bake forty minutes, slow oven;
square pan. "When the cake is cold cut out
the center and pour in the whipped cream;
drop over top candied cherries or other con
serves. Ladies who desire to become more efficient
in managing their culinary department
should possess a copy of the "BannerBecipe
Book." This handsome book is replete
with valuable household information; with
