Mr. Straub's Residence On The Heights An
Attractive Place.
Mr. Gotleib Straub, of the Heights,
has two soft shell almond trees in fall
bud, some of them already open. They
are very fragrant and pare white with
just a touch of red at the stem. Last
year the trees bore a few nuts bnt
birds carried them off when just set.
Mr. and Mrs. Straub spare neither
? labor or money in having rare plants
and trees.
They have a foreign walnnt tree, a
') native magnolia, which bears the
[ lovely cream colored blossom, delio
iously scented, and a nnmber of other
very valuable, trees in their beautiful
garden. Just now the daffodowndillvs,
hyacinths and tulips are in bloom.
Sunday morning Mrs. Straub feared
that all of her dowers would be dead,
but they raised their heads up brave
ly as if in defiance, Monday and look
ed very pretty. A number of their
rosebushes are dead and all of them
show the effect of the storm with
their blaokened leaves. A dish filled
with water for the birds had two
inches of solid ice in it.
Although rumors still abound to the
effeot that all of the tomato vines,
eto. have been killed in the country
round, the sight of gardens and fruit
trees within the borough limits would
appear to contradiot the reports, as
they are fast overcoming the effects
of the storm and look green and full
of life. The bods are still clinging
to the trees too, which is encourag
ing ? at least we hope so.
Given In The Methodist Churoh Menday
Night By Professor Steins.
The recital given under the direc
tion of Prof. Steins at tl d John street
, M. E. Churoh, Monday night, was a
great success and netted a nice little
sum for the ohurch. The program
was an extensive one and far above
the ordinary. It was as follows :
First, an organ prelude by Prof.
Steins, which was pronounced grand.
Second, the singing of the anthem
"Make a Joyful Noise," by the choir.
It was beautifully rendered and re
ceived an enoore which was not re
sponded to.
Third, a fine violin solo by Mr.
William Mclntire, accompanied by
Mies Rose Steinx on the new organ.
Fourth, a Baritone Solo, "Forget
the Past," by John Kane.
Fifth, a cello solo with organ ac
companiment by William Mclntire
and Rose Steins.
Sixth, Tromborfe solo by John Kane,
accompanied by Prof. Steins.
Seventh, solo "Evening Star," by
Dora Rowe, South Amboy's sweet
! Eighth, Organ Prelude by Prof.
Ninth, a quartette by Prof. -Steins,
Prof. Kern, WilHam Molntlre and
Miss Rose Steins, two violins, cello
and organ.
Tenth, solo, "The Palms," by Prof.
Kern on the cello.
Eleventh, Vocal Solo with violin
accompaniment "Angel Serenade,"
beautifully rendered by Miss Dora
Rowe arf.. William Mclntire.
Twelfth, Violin duet by Prof. Kern
and William Mclntire.
Thirteenth, the olosing piece by all
of the instrumentalists. It was com
posed of three saored melodies begin
ning with "Lead kindly light. "
There was a full honse, but the
admission fee was very small, only 10
cents, for so fine an entertainment.
We hope this is only a beginning and
that the Professor will give the lovers
of good music the chance to enjoy
many more such recitals.
All of the performers are deserving
of the greatest praise.

The cave-in still remains by the nd
of the pedestrian part of the Borden -
town avenue bridge over the Raritan
River railroad and has become more
dangerous than before since the last
The ory still is, an electric light is
very much needed in George street
near the bridge, as it is not a safe
place on a dark night. Those living
near there are very desirous of having
one plaoed there aijd why they do not
bring it before the council is very
singular. That is the onlv way that
it can be got and it certainly is worth
trying for.
The Qas Company has plaoed an
other engine in their plant. They
have been plaoing service pipes in
several houses lately on John and
other streets.

Trenton labor has won two import
ant victories. The master sheet metal
workers decided Saturday night to
accede to the demands made by their
employes for $8 a day pay and a half
holiday on Saturday. This settles the
strike and the men returned to labor
Monday morning.
The master plumbers also agreed to
pay their workmen their demands,
which were <3 a day and a half holi
day on Saturday, and they went to
work Mondav morning.
Tinsmiths and plumbers at Shamok
in, Pa., are on strike because their
demands for a nine-hour day and ten
per oent increase in wages were re
fused. Fifteen hundred men and boys
also went on afcrike there at three in
dividual operations because the own
ers wanted the minora to start work
half hour later than at present in the
morning and take a half hour longer
for dinner. Three hundred more
miners at another operation went on
strike because the owners wotfld not
add another shift to their two-Bhift
set of firemen.
Henry P. Hilfers and Henry 0.
Mueller, of the Essex Trades Ooonoil,

where they organized two labor unions
daring the last ten days. Mr. Hilfers

twenty-five members, to which all of
the other cigar makers at Atlantic
Oity have applied for membership.
The new onion will be affiliated with
the International Cigar makers' Union.
Mi. Mueller organized a Brewery
Workers' Union, which inolndes all
of the men employed in the one local
brewery, and the five depots of the
Philadelphia breweries at Atlantic
Oity. The new organization has a
membership of fifty men, and it will

ery Workers' Union.
Tfte Theatres*
The distinct marvel of the season
in New Tork is the spontaneous and
lasting hit at Wallaok's theatre of
Qeorge Ade's merry musical satire,
"The Sultan of Suln. " Sinoe Sultan
Ki-Ram appeared on Broadway with
his bewitohing wives and host of
pretty girls the oity has gone comic
opera mad, as many as thirteen music
al shows at one time . bidding for
favor. Out of this number only one
that was there when foe "Saltan"
arrived, is still in the race and it has
announced the end of its engagement.
Never in the history of American
opera has there been a'parallel to the
phenomenal success of Author Ade's
first piece.
It is now understood that "The
Sultan of Snlu," will remain in New
York straight through thw summer
season when it will more, than likely
be followed at Wallack's by "Peggy
from Paris," now the reigning suc
cess in Ohioago. Recently advertise
ments have appeared in papers
throughout the Weat announcing that
"Peggy" will not be seen west of
Ohioago this season. If Mr. Savage
should be as fortunate in New York
with "Peggy" as wfth" The Sultan,"
Mr. Ade's seoond opera is not likely
to be seen west of Oh icago next season
Western music lovers are now in a
position to oongratnlate New York
sinoe "The Prince of Pilsen" has
soored its pronounced hit at the Broad
way Theatre. Whereever this tuneful
and langh -provoking musical comedy
was seen in the West it was pro
nounced one of the best entertain
ments of its kind yet brought out by
Henry W. Savage. Reoord breaking
business greeted it and there is a gen
eral impression that its authors, Pix
ley and tinders, have excelled their
"King Dodo" in the new piece, at
least New York thinks so.
