THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, 1902.
.. 1 ' ' '" B 1
BOARD wMMAIJTHU .-
IS NOW IN SIGHT
"Appointees, but One, Will Be Con
firmed nt .Next Meeting of Select
"" Council Open Fight for Sanitary
. Policeman and Board Secretary.
"Tlie indications lire tlmt within two
weeks Ciirbondalo will have Its bonrd
of health again,
i. It will be sufo to hazard the guess
ithat at the next meeting o select coun
cil, MonOay, Aug. 18, the appointments
made by Mayor O'Neill, will be taken
"tip nnd confirmed, with possibly one
(.exception. Opposition, for some reason
,ur, Qthc.iv perhups only a specious one,
hhaandeveloppd against one of the ap
pointees, and as the vote of the coun
"cilm!ur who holds the opposition Is
lnecossary to confirm all of the appoin
tee?," It' Is likely that the mayor will
have to dubmlt another name In place
of the one, In, nuestlon. If this name
be .withdrawn and a substitute sent In,
.the board of liealth would be In exist
ence again. The appointments would
have ,becn taken up and disposed of at
the recent meeting of select council,
'Wednesday night, but for the absence
Sf MrV'Solbmon, from the Sixth ward.
"It ,1a" an open secret that the reason
,.for holding up the appointments In the
beginning was due to the fight for the
i secretaryship of the board -of health.
The controlling Influence of select coun
cil keeps the appointments In commit
tee until there was assurance that the
"appointees would pledge themselves for
a certain candidate. A few weeks ago,
however, a change took place. The
candidate for the secretaryship, who
was successful In keeping the appoint
ments asleep, has been appointed, or
rather re-appolnted to another position.
This placated him and he has relin
quished all claim, as It were, on the
secretaryship of the board of health.
By this disposition of the matter, the
game of politics with respect to the
health board ends. The band can now
play on. The ten or more candidates
for the secretaryship have an open
field and can bestir themselves now to
secure the pledges of the appointees.
The same Is true of the sanitary pollce
manslrip, the candidates for which are
the present incumbent, P. F. Moffatt
and Michael Gallagher.
MRS. BASSETT'S NEW BOOK.
Col. McComb's Estimate of It Beau
To any one who has read "Judith's
Garden" the following review will be
refreshing, and to those who have not
read the book the clean-cut estimate
given by John McComb will convey
an idea as to its quality and worth.
Coming as it does from a man who
has read thousands of good books, and
whose versatility of talent is so well
known, it will be a great card for the
author's latest production.
Of Mrs. Bassett's latest book, John
McComb has given his estimate as fol
lows: "One evening recently I started to
read 'Judith's Garden,' and did not put
it aside until every page was finished.
It la a pure Bweet story, redplent with
the aura of flowers, and full of Nature's
brightness, divested of all sham and
conventionality. The construction of
the tale shows the author's familiarity
with the characteristics of birds, bulbs
and blossoms, and gives her estimate
of the soothing qualities of certain en
vironments. She makes life In a gar
den replete with satisfaction to the en
thusiastic lover of rippling rills, placid
lakes, feathered songsters, indulgent
husband, congenial spirits, good cook,
bturdy amiable helper, compassionate
rich nunt and generous landlord. The
story Is bright from start to finish, and
it is told In a crisp, breezy way, that
holds the reader's willing attention.
There Is no Improbable character In It.
All the situations are natural, and
there is refreshment In the language of
FAINTING) CONTRACT DEAD.

Knew How to Select Food.
A good healthy Canadian takes pleas

Ho says: "In November, '99, I began
to feel bad every day and gradually got
worse. I did not lose my appetite. On
the contrary, after having u good meal
I felt better, but after being nt work
perhaps an hour or so I would have
terrible pains all over my body, I lost
considerable time from my work, some
times a few hours and sometimes two
or three days.

The Federal union, endorsed by the
Central Labor union, as has been pub
lished protested against the action of
School Directors Vanonn and Kvans, In
giving the contract to a non-union
firm, but the protest went to tho com
mittee where no action will be taken
on It, an the committee feels Its action
was the proper one. Tho Federal union
committee Is of the opinion that It hns
gone as far as It deems fitting, the work
Is done and the protest Is pigeonholed,
It Is felt as certain. Therefore further
action will hardly be taken.

A COW KILLED.
Reuben Cohen Loses a Valuable
A wandering cow, the property of

very foolishly stepped In front of a
Delaware and Hudson passenger train
at the Lookout yesterday. The re
mains are still lying near the track, as
