The board of health held the first
meeting of July yesterday afternoou ut
us mom in the municipal building.
Dr. Uently, the president, called the
meeting to order ami the session which
followed wits nothing if not Interest
ing Dr. W. E. Allenrhenltli ofii.ier of the
board, when called upon for his report
uroso with a sly twinkle m his gray
eyes. Dr, Allen's report is always
looked forward to with pleasurable an
ticipations for the sidn splitting Humor
that prevniles them. His report of yes
terday is herewith giveu:
To the board of heath. Scranton, Pa.
ti kn it. km kn During the mouth of June
forty speviui complaints were made to the
board of health, mid all have been attend
ed to satisfactorily, excepting the one mut
ter of chickens. These bipeds nave been a
source of much trouble to t lie people of
souio parts of the city and likewise to the
board of health. They are complained of
for various reasons tho principal ones
being the objectionable aroma from their
environment, so to speak; the insects,
commonly known as lice, which are so
uninerous and friendly in their immediate
vicinity, and lust hut not least, the music
of their voices, which they send up hour
ly to heaven 'from early eve till dewy
morn," making sleep impossible and life n
burden. If they only Ming in tune it would
not be so bad, but they do not. Among
the hundreds of these vocalists in the
neighborhood of Mulberry street, no two,
1 n lit informed, are ever on tho same
pitch, from tho quavering high soprano to
tho tenors of rather limited experience
aud the croaking old rooster who tunes up
later iu the morning. Teis certainly is
terrible, but what cau be dono about it?
I have considered the mutter carefully and
have about giveu up. 1 will leave the sol
ution of the diUlculty to the board.
Tho most delisting, and I think dan
gerous nuisance now existing, is tho Wy
koff pavement, so culled, on Pen n avenue
and Spruce street. The odor from these
rotten old biocks that have been saturated
with everything oily from the time they
were put down is certainly daugorous as
well as disagreeable. There can bo no
species of genu left out, aud in tn v opinion
the atmosphere of tho whole neighborhood
is unsafe. 1 would suggest that councils
be importuui'd to pass an ordinauce re
quiring at least tho removal of tho rotten
wood and filth.

the amount of stun? burned is ns fol

coal were tued for the month.
The report of Food Inspector Richard
Thomas was of the same et-reotypo l
lotm us the past monthly effusions of
that nrgus eyed official hav-j been. It
contained tho important announce
ment that he has made 533 official
visits and so forth.
At this juncture James Dngun, of
the .North hud, chimed in. James is a
scavenger hy profession mid looks like
a dominie. Whether he ever kissed the
blarney stone or not is not quite cleur,
l.nt his 1 ingnag? wottid indicate that
by some hook or crook he was endowed
with the "gift of the gab." He nude a
very v.'.ciferons charge against Food
Inspector Thomas, nllvging that Mr.
Thomas had gone so far as to instruct
heads of families in the North End not
to give liny garbage to Dnggan or. in
fact, to any or the collectors of dial.
Ho alo said that Mr. Thomas was der
elict in attending to cafes of contagions
diseases, insomuch 119 that he was l.izy
in placarding the houses where these
diseases were, otten neglecting to post
notices until the patients were recov
ered. Uiiggau said that Dr. Hobs, of
Park Place, reported a ilozm cases of
measles nml Mr. Thomas did not plac
ard the houses until the children wire
Secretary Briggs lifted tho charge
from the shoulder of Mr, Thomas with
the statement that during the past two
months there were only four cases of
measles reported by Dr, Ross and that
in each case the receipts of Mr.Thomas
were in his possession showing that pla
cards had been taken out,
Colonel E. II. Ripple made a motion
that in order to justify Mr. Thomas,
the sanitary officer bj instructed
to visit the houses of the people whose
family was utllicted with mans
les as reported by Dr. Ross
and lenrn from them if Mr. Thomas
attended strictly to his duty, Duggnn
supplemented ins attack on Mr.
Thomas with the charge that a man
named John Morris, a hotel-keeper of
Providence, who rents a house owned
by Mr. Thomas, paying therefor if(55 a
month, refused to surrender any gar
Page, and Duggan alleged that Mr
Thomas was the cause of it, saying
that he whs in th habit of going
among his friends ami urging them to
burn their garbage or throw it In the
mauure pile, and not pay a monthly
fee to garbage collectors for carting it
Mr. Thomas stood up to contradict
Duggau, and after a spasm of giggling
be managed to get off the following
sentences: "My yard is perfectly clean
and I invite any person to come and
examine my little garden, and if he
can find a handful of garbage 1 will
make him a present of a aigar, a good
cigar. Ws do not have much garbago
My little family sometimes buys a head
01 cabbage, or two.
This succint argument was met in
Colonel Ripple made a motion that
the collectors of garbage be instructed
to give notice wbsre they can be
reached by telephone, so that they may
oe communicated with when com
plaints are Bent to the secretary or any
memuer or the board regarding the ao
cumulation of garbage at any place.
The discussion on the garbage ques
tion wai again onnod by Mr. Duucan
He was boiling over with wrath and
wanted to say anything and everything
against Food Inspector Thomas, but
Colonel Ripple shut him oil'. The plans
for the erection of a retaining wail at
the garbage crematory were examined
by the bourd and City hncineer Phil-.
lips came into the room for the purpose
of explaining the plans more fully to

In 1ST -i in Luzerne conntv at the
commissioners' sale of unseated lands,
Marcy bought a tract of 1!)3 acres of
land iu Carboudale township. That
was before the land was known to bo
underlaid with veins of coal , nud there
fore the value of it was not placod at a
Very high figure. However, the com
pany owning' the land Maintained that
it was an improper proceeding on the
part of tho commissioners to set tip lor
sale tho property as unseated land,
alleging that the tract was entitled to
classification as seated property.
.Not until Viyj did Marcy bring stilt
to dispossess the Hillside Coal and Iron
company. Then he began an action
nndvr the right nnd title conferred
upon him in his deed of purchase.
Owing to the indisposition of r.. A.
Willard at the time the case was con
tinued from the June terra. It has
been placed on the docket where it Will

A special meeting of the poor board
was held yesterday afternoon ut
tho Hillside hom-, overlooKing the
picture'ipte Newton valley, which
just now wears its most becoming
garb. After the meeting the membors
inspected the new women's buildinir,
which is the most complete of the
kind in the state.
The mooting was cilled to order by
President VI. L. LatiL'stalf; the other
directors present being: Mrs, Frances
H. Swan, aud Messrs, Gibbons, Wil
liams, Sliotten and Murphy.
The question of awarding the con
tract for the remodelling of the build
ing formally used by women wss the
mutter that engaged the attention of
the board. Toe bids were received at
the lust meeting but were referred to
tho home committee to ascertain if the
district could not linve the building re
modelled better and cheaper by having
the work dono by the day and employ
ing such inmates of the home as could
be utilized on the work
After fully considering the matter
the home c liimittee and Architect
Amsden enme to tho conclusion that
tho district would not make anything
by undertaking the reconstruction of
tho building itself, and so reported to
the meeting yesterday.
Mr. Gibbons inclined to the belief
that it would be cheaper for the dls
trict to have the work dono by the day
and employ as much of its own help us
possible, until he heard Architect Ams
den 'a opinion and those of the mem
bers of the home committee. He
then n.-reed with the other members
to have tho work done by contract
and John ISenore & Sou being the low
est bidders were awarded the contract
for IJS.200. The contract for steam and
gas fitting, plumbing, etc., was award
ed to Hunt & Connell for $3,490 Work
011 the remodelling of the building will
commence at once aud it will probably
be ready for occupancy by winter.
Secretary Lynett reported that the
hoard of underwriters had reconsidered
the adverse report of Mr. Bradell, the
electrical expert who examined tho
wiring of the new building, nnd were
anxious to have the policies stand us
originally issnod. On motion of Mr.
Gibbons the action of the board in or
dering the policies cancelled was re
cinded, Tho house committee was directed to
have the eiectrio lights taken out of
the octagon baru to prevent the possi
bility of lire.
After tho business meeting adjourned
the members proceeded to tue new
women's building nnd inspected it. It
was first occupied lust Monday. The
building is an imposing brick structure
with stone trimmings, and is the first
one that greets the evens the visitor ap
proaches the farm. It is fireproof, hoi
low firebricks and steel girders form
ing the floors, nnd the walls are also of
hollow firebrick. All of the floors are
covered with slate tileB.
The very latest sanitary ideas were
employed in its construction, nud it is
aa nearly a perfect building for the use
of old nnd infirm women as could be
imagined, The dormitories lire well
lighted, cheerful and comfortable. The
building is 5(1x100 feet in size, with a
wing SiOx'.'U feet, and is three stories in
height. Its total coat was about

June is generally supposed to be the
most popular month with brides, and
there is a belief that a greater number
of them make their dohut during
June than any otlu r month in the
year. Tho facts do not la-nr ont this
assertion. During June, 10!) marriage
licenses were granted by the clerk of
of the courts of this county. Exactly
the same number wero grunted in Sep
tember and October lust. March has
the lowest record, having only til to its
credit, while February is next lowest
with 70. January was the most popu

with June, i:!l licenses having boen is

A tramp became sick at Lewistown,
Pa., with a mild attack of small pox
and the board of health isolated the
case nnd hired another tramp to take
care of him. As a mntter of course,
No. '1 went near to see how No. 1 was
getting along, nud according to tramp
No. 2, in a few days No. 1 died. The
board of health notified tramp No. '2 to
bury No. 1 and present his bill for the
same. Tramp No. 2 followed his direc

which was promptly paid, It has since
transpired that Tramp No. 1 was only
