Upon motion of Councilman Mi
celll the report was ordered accepted
and the city attorney was Instructed
to draft an ordinance appropriating
the sum of $1500 or any part thereof,
necessary in obtaining the ubovo art
icles. PqrehuM Dump AVtigon
Another matter considered at some
length was that of purchasing a steel
dump wagon. Councilman Strong, a
member of the committee recently
appointed to ascertain the price of
such an Implement, informed the
council that Mr Patterson, repre
sentative of IJeale & Company, of
Portland, dealers In wagons of this
variety, was present at the meeting
and could speak for himself.
Mr. Patterson spoke briefly, simply
stating that he could furnish the city
a steel dump wagon, slntlllar to those
used nt Portland. Tacnma and Sent
tie, for the sunt of $210. He guaran
teed the wagon to answer the pur
pose for which ft is intended In this
cily for years, being const ructed
wholly of steel and Iron.
Upon receiving Mr. Patterson's
proposition Councilman Strong In
formed the council that he had been
unable to obtain competitive bids,
hut would do so should the body so
i .Councilman Sykes said that there
. was very little difference In the cost
of wagons of this variety, therefore
; he thought It would he well to enter
into a contract Immediately that the
street cleaning .department might
have use of it In carting away its
Wluiont further ceremony Coun
cilman Micelli advanced a motion to
the effect that 'the wagon be pur
chased at once through T. J) Patter
son, reureseiiting Beule & Company,
; of Portland.
j Mayor Mavnes interrupted f'oun
j oilman MIcellf at that time and sug
gested that some provision be made i
for the' drafting of an ordinance to j
cover the expenditure necessary in I
securing the waiion. MIcelH respond-1
ed by stating that It had been the;
custom in tho past to order Mich ;
necesslt ies without ordinance. Inti
mating that the drawing of an ordin
ance was unnecessary. Havnes, how
over persisted that tho ordinance be
drafted, however, and Micelli con
ceded, after informing the Mayor
that should he wish to establish such
precedent It would cost the city con
siderable money In compiling ordin
ances. "Why," aald Micelli, "if we
start In to draft ordl nances every
time we wish to effect a purchase a
mere shovel will cost us $2.50. (he'
price of the ordinance, besides the
original price of the implement." t
Realizing, however, that the May
or favored tho ordinance Micelli i
said nothing more, simply advancing
a motion authorizing the city allor-.
ney to draw tho necessary ordinance ;
appropriating the sum of $210, the
price of the wagon.
Without further discussion Heale,
& Company, of Portland, was award-
ed the con tract, Micelli renin rk'ng '
that the ordinance would be In n-ad-.
Iness by tho time the wagon arrived. :
Ordinance In Retarded (
An ordinance was then placed on ;
its first and second rending author-;
izing the expenditure of $Tii)0 in ex
pertlng the city hooks. Councilman ;
McClallen requested that tho rules
be suspended and the ordinance be
placed on Its third leading, hut such
procedure wag blocked by tho mayor
Haynes, who said that he thought :
more, time should he taken as con
siderable diftfatfpfactfnn was preval
ent relative to tho move. Council
men Mullen and Btrong coincided
with the mayor and McClallen was
compelled to withdraw his motion In
the apparent face of defeat. Tho ord
inance will probably come up for Its
third reading at the next regular
nicotinic of the council.
Councilman Mulb-n then askd If
anything had been done relative to
the decorative lighting projM-if itlon.
He was Informed by the mayor that
no report, was at hand, an assertion
which caused him to shudder and
say: "Well, I thought Josephson wa-i
going" to have this thing settled by
tonight its the same old story of
monkeying around without accomp

Ere3h pork is fine filling, hut be
careful that tho little folks do not eat

you better take this advice yourself.

them before placing them in the dish.
A good way to protect a bed of ten

fully down to tho ground, hold them
in position with stakes, then coer
with leaves, straw or earth. On my

a hoavy layer of leaves held in place
by a wide strip of wire chickeu net
ting laid fiat on the bed and. securely
staked at the edges.
There Is something nbout Christ
mas giving the thinking nbout oth
ers, and what they will like that
warms the henrt nnd makes one feel
cheerful and happy and busy. That
is, if the giving is done in the right
way; not only by bestowing useless
triiles that soon degenerate into
"clutter", just for the sake of giving
something, norglfts so expensive that
you begrudgo them, because hand
somy ones have been or may be given
to you. Glvo something you believe
Is needed or desired by rncepint. If
too much for your single purae the
spirit of the day is combination. How,
for Instance, would the mother appre
ciate an easy chair, or a new cloake
or dress, given by all her children?
Or one family might unite In giving
to another a good picture, or a sub

and porcelain dishes, or a charting

bring many a pleasant thought of the

Hut the main thing is for each to be
bent on making every other member
of the family happy and comfortable,
even down to tho old horse nnd dog
and cat and the birds that winter
with you; and it will thus be sure to
be n happy time, full of the true spir
