LIGERENT SUPERVISORS. 'osing Day ofthe Session was a Lively One. Means. Bates and Jenkins Indnl-re in "Cuss Words"—A Wraujrle Over Hydraulic Ml nine*. The Supervisors wound up their May Session yesterday with fireworks. It was lively from the word go. The first subject brought up was tlie hiring of special counsel to assist the Dis trict Attorney in disposing of the suit of Burr vs. the Board of Supervisors—to have annulled the Bee's bill for adver tising tho delinquent tax list. It was this same matter that raised a rumpus in tho Superior Court Friday, Burr's counsel objecting to the appearance of Bruner <fc Bruner as attorneys for the Super visors, on the ground that they had not been authorized to appear as such. Tho Supervisors took it upon them selves yesterday to settle the matter once and for all. SETTLING THE QUESTION.

4 WHERE WORDSWORTH SANG. Wakeman's Wanderings Among the English Lakes. Descriptive of "Rydal Mount, Word worth's Old Home, tho Noble Westmoreland Retreats of the Poet, nis Grave and St. Oswald's Church at Grasmere. [Special Correspondence of the SUNDAY Union. Copyright, 1891.] Grasmere, Eng., April 2S, 1891. Just as the present century was coming in, Wordsworth, the then political ex tremist and budding poet, with his sister Dorothy—one of the grandest types of those women whose resistless sympathy and encouragement are of more benefit to the world than the blatant pretensions of all the female "ists" that ever were born, or ever will be born, into it—re turned to tho English Lake region, the land of their birth, and it remained their home until their death. I tramped over the fell from Keswick to Cockerinouth, the ancient village in which, in 1777, the poet was born. The grand scenery of the region lies in every direction in endless change along the winding way. To the east, Helvel...

FAKES AND FAKIRS. Barnum's Truism That the People Like to Be Humbugged. ♦'Hadji Pasha" Tells How to Become a Great Showman—Dealings With Phonomonons and "Indians"—Tho Manager's Make-up — Successful Operations of Street P_i*euolo_i_ts. "Oh, it's a fake." It is quite a common expression nowa days, particularly with reference to crooked sporting affairs and theatricals. The word "fake" is generally tabooed by real nice folks as emanating from slang dom. It may have been slang once, but it's English now. Just look in your big unabridged "Webster's dictionary. You will not find tho word in tho regular compilation, but turn back to the appendix or supplement and you will see that the author defines the word as "a trick; a swindle." He might have added, as another synonym, "humbug," but he was probably in a hurry and forgot it. Speaking of humbugs, fakes or swindles, I might quote from the lato world-famous showman, P. T. Barnum. < Barnum used to say that peoplo like to bo humbugged, an...

PEDRO LEARA'S KNIFE. He Used It Freely on Four Persons Yesterday. Tamaletown Thrown Into a Tever of Excitement—What a Barrel of Wino Did. Tho tamfllc quarter was the scene of groat excitement yesterday afternoon, and as tho result tlie City Physician stood in the Receiving Hospital, with his coat and hat oil, and his shirt-sleeves rolled up, for about two hours, dressing the wounds of the victims of Pedro Leva's knifo. They were four in number, and each j waited for his turn in tlie private oflice of the Chief of Police, which adjoins the hos- { pital. Tho scene would liave reminded j au oldj soldier of an army surgeon's op- ! erating-room. Fortunately, none of the j persons who stood there shedding their ; blood were dangerously wounded.

FARM AND ORCHARD. The Improvement of Stock by Careful Selection. Hilling Potatoes—Dying in the Shells- Balling of Lambs—A Dozen Stools of Rhubarb—Esgs In Sprinc and Sum mer—Poultry Notes. Much time and labor may be wasted by farmers who attempt to improve their stock by selection, but without recourse to some well-known breed. Farmers are not averse to improving stock. Like all other classesjthey prefer the best, but they do not take the easiest and quickest way to gain their objects. By selection of tlie best for breeding purposes, every year, any stock can be made better, but some rule must govern the process of improve ment by selection, as the first requisite is to fix certain characteristics in order that they may be transmitted to the progeny. "Unless the stock becomes better with each succeeding generation the process will be slow, and but little will be gained. In the past the founding of a breed has required the efforts of fathers, sons und grandsons, while skill and patien...

6 "COLD CHEER" INDEED. Complaints of a Fastidious Rebel Prisoner. lie Objects to Yankee Treatment, and Charffos That Camp Morton Lacked tho Usual Comforts of Home—Ho is "Well Answered. [Special correspondence of RECbntvUNlox.] From luxurious apartments on Madi son avenue a professional gentleman, a Confederate soldier —a prisoner at In dianapolis in 1864—writes a work of fic tion for the April ( Century, under the title "Cold Cheer at Camp Morton." Both the adjectives and illustrations are chosen for their effect rather than for their rela tion to fact. If the article were to be carefully read, there would be no occa sion to reply to it, for it furnishes its own internal evidence of unreliability. For twenty-five years the writer has un doubtedly been giving private rehearsals of prison experiences, enlarging upon them as his imagination broadened and intensified, until at last he lias gone into print, more anxious to live up to his oral versions than to keep within the bounds of re...
