Various persons have claimed the credit of discovering or inventing the ce cream soda, out of which developed the sundae, the latter name having 1 been applied to It, according to legend, because a drug-grist originated the delectation on the first day of the week. According: to general judgment, Robert M. Green of Philadelphia was the ream soda, In the spring of 1S74 Mr. Green was agent for John Matthews of New York and at the. same time had begun the manufacture of smaller fountains of his own. He obtained a concession to dispense aoda water at an exposition, held under the auspices of the Franklin Institute of Philadelphia, and stress cf business compelled him to attract the attention of the public. So he advertised ice cream In soda water at soda fountain and is entitled to the honor- of originating "ice-cream-soda" which, as years have passed, has developed an enormous demand and given a great Impetus to the business of soda water dispensing. On the other hand, the credit for commercializing Ice cream as an adjunct to soda water, even though Mr. Green was the first to use it, belongs to Fred Sanders of Detroit, a confectioner of the Michigan city. The inspiration to use ice cream with soda water came to Mr. Sanders one night when hia plain cream had soured, and without tne knowledge that it had already been used as a component oE aoda water In the oast, Mr. Sanders used ice cream and featured it. He probably did more to popularize "ice- cream-soda" than any other fountain owner in the country. The city will pay 20 per cent on the supplemental assessment to be charged against people In the Homestead lateral sewer district following action taken on this matter In the city council Thursday morning. This means 'he city will pay around $1,600 to help the property owners out there. The sewer is north and west ef the Pugh school. EXPENSIVE LATERAL. Formerly it was the custom of the- city to help pay for a portion of all such sewers but this practice had been discontinued, the property owners pay. ing for all. However, unusual conditions surround the building of this- lateral. In the first place, the engineer's estimate on the cost was a little over $11,000, H being a very expensive lateral since in some places It had to go twenty-eight feet deep. MORE REINFORCEMENT. When building it, some bad conditions of the soil were found and it was believed best to reinforce around tne tile in places with : concrete. This made more extra expense on the sewer. Then too, when the bids for the lateral were opened, the contractors had Investigated the ground, knew of the conditions ar.d the result was that the bids were all around ,SS,000 above the original estimate. Finding that the work could not be done cheaper, the contract had to be let at these high prices and that made necessary a supplemental assessment of around. ?S,000. Then again, it had been planned originally as a sanitary sewer but the city later put in a number of catcli basins to drain the storm water too and under all these conditions, !t waa thought only fair they should pay this amount. ANOTHER LATERAL. The board of local Improvements also brought in ordinance for the first reading for a lateral sewer to be constructed from the Seventh Ward sewer t Pine street and the alley between K i n g and Marietta, running west to Van Dyke, thence north to the alley between View and Marietta and west in that alley 640 feet and also north from Van Dyke and the alley between View and Marietta a distance of about 407 feet to the alley between Marietta and Packard and wept In the last named alley, 600 feet. Th'e-estimated cost of this sewer is $2,232.90. It was placed on passage and goes over one week. NEW WATER PIPE. Commissioner Ruthrauff reported that he was planning to put water pipe in on Oakland avenue between West Main and 'North streets, also on West William, Taylor avenue and North Edward streets, where these streets are to be paved this summer. He estimated these jobs would take 3,027 feet of pipe and that according to the appropriation ordinance he would be able to buy about 6,SOO feet of pipe. He named over about a dozen more streets where requests had been made for water mains and he asked the council to meet with him and talk over the beat places to put these mains. OBJECTIONS WITHDRAWN. All objections to the' acceptance of the Homestead sewer were withdrawn in the county court Thursday and tho decree accepting the jeewer was entered. AMERICAN LEAGUE. N'ew York ........................ 0 Washington ....................... 0 FIJI NO CANNIBAL, BUT A GENTLEMAN Chicago.--Another musical comedy hero here has failed to live up to his reputation. This time it fs the Fiji Islander. For the Fiji no longer is a head-hunting, man-eating savage, who feasts his score of wives on missionary meat. Instead he is a devout Christian and the mildest native of all islands of the South Seas. Authority for this reform of the Fljis Is Dr. A. B. Lewis, director of the Field Museum of Natural Science, who has spent four four years in the Islands of the southern Pa- cttic. Sent out with funds provided by Joseph X. Field. Dr. Lewis studied anthropology and enthology in the South Sea Islands from 1909 to 1013. "The 90,000 natives In the Fijls are adherents of the Christian church," said Dr. Lewis yesterday. "About (SO.000 are Australian Jtethodlsts and the rest are Roman Catholics. Each native village has its little house which on Sundays Is used as a church and on week days serves as a school. The natives are taught in their own language, but there is a sort of central high school where English Is taught." Xhe FIJI Is nothing if not a gentleman. While the 90,000 native Fljis calmly enjoy life, 40.000 or 50.000 imported Hindu laborers work the sugar and banana plantations which make the Fijis the largest exporting Islands In the South Sea group. The most important items in the varied collection 1 of 10.000 specimens made by Dr. Lewis on the trip are. in his opinion, his assemblage of preserved human skulls ana his collection of dance masks of the natives.
