A menu oí ours lias a novel way of preserving egg?, by putting them in a stockM2 leg añil tnralng them over once a week. Last August's eggs are now being used as fresh as new lakl ones. One thlng s painfully apparcnt these dark nijjhts, and that g, that tlie streets of tliis city, in the thickly poputated portion, sliould be Ughted eveningc The Demociat elosed a sensible article on the subject last week, as follows : " There 9 snmething nbout tliis lichting business tlnit the people do not understand. The mayor and merabers of the council say that they have offered the gas company two dollars and twenty-five cents per thoueand- certainly areasonable prlce, as the company has to examine no metres, niake out but one bill, present it to the council each month and gel their money. Ou the other hand, the gas company say j that they have offered to furnish gas ut two dollars per thousnnd. The city offers to buy at two dollars and twentytive cents and tlie gas company offers to sell at two dollars, and yet they can't agreel The mayor and aldermen thould act and act at once. If they can't tnake a contract with the electric light company, or gas company, or the gasoline company, they can at least order gome mproved gasolinc lamps, put them on the gas posta whlch belong to the city and light the streets. Gasoline costs nine cent a gallon. A gallon of t will light nine lampg eight hours - costing one cent a nlght for each post. Let us have light. And let us have no more foolishness."
