For which compliment and kind remembrance the boys will accept our thanks. A company bas Deen organized under tbe luws oí Indiana, to be known as the m unión electric light company. and lias mivliascd the right of Prof. W. J.

This company nieans business, and will begin active operutions as soon as necessary arrangcments can be made."

All kinds of burns, Including scalds and sunburns, are alraost mmediately relieved by au application of a solution of soda to the burnt surface. It must be remembi'rt'd that dry soda won't do unless it is surrounded by a cloth moist enough to dissolve t. This method of sprinkling it on and covering it with a wet cloth is often the very best. But it is sufficient to wash the wound repeatedly with a strong solution. It would be well to keep a bottle of it always on hand, made so strong that more or less settles on the bottom. This U what is called a satunited solution, and really such a solution as this is formed when the dry soda is sprinkled on and covered with a moistened cloth. It is thought by some that the pain of a burn is caused by the hardening of the albumen of the tlisli, which presses on the nerves, and that the soda dissolves the albumen and relieves the pressure. Others think that the burn generates an acrid acid, which the soda The vacant lots at the northeast corner of North and State streete, opposite the residences of Dr. Vaughan, and the Sisters of Charity, are being made a general dumping ground for Uie city. It seems as though the city fathers ought to interfere, if no one else does, and stop the dumping of decaying garbage and refuse in that place. It not only makes a very unpleasant and unsightly spot for residents in that locality to gaze upon, but also breeds malaria. Of eourse it would necessitate a little more work on the part of the scavengers who clean up yards and carry off refuse, etc, but it strike ik tlixy miglit to ! mude to dump their carts outside of the thickly populated portions of the city, at least. It is a shame to our city, and a pest to many of our citiens, and ought to be stopped. We also notice that these same class of fellows have commenced filling up the cut made in the liill on the extensión of Catharine street, east of Ingalls and just south of Harvey Cornwell's residence. If it is ever the intention of the city to nniüpklU that strrit they ought to post notices tliere tolliiji these lazy ilumpers that any further iiitriiigement will be prosecuted according to law. Mnny of the papers throughout the state have been publishing gratis - at least we take it so, as we were offered the same thing with nothing said about pay- a long notice of the " new cornet " which was not cliM-overed. The only object of the notice is to give a patent medicine man gratuitous advertising. In this we think the newspapers are foolish. It Is doubtfnl if this saine individual to whom tliese notices are worth thousands of dollars, would give the euitors wiionu.w .„. . ' , or even a bottle of liis fauious remedies on the saine terms. If they get anything of hiiu they will have to pay tor it. Now we take it that the advertising space in a newspiIer is the publishers property, the saroe as Iioftlo oL mudiUiie l the property of the man who makes it for sale, and a reque.-t to giw it away is begging. We cali a man who neks us for a pWMJT on the street a beggar. He asks us for our property. So does the man who asks us for tree advertisin ask us for our property, just the same, and should be treated the same as you would treat a beggar. lf you should write a letter to this great philanthropist and request of him some of his medicine gratis, that your health might be benefited (?) the request would without the least doubt be reeeived with contempt, and the answer would be: "if you want medicine buy it." If mblishers would teil these advertising beggars words to the same purpoit, that if they want advertising to pay for it, they would be doing an act of justice to themselves.
