No satisfactory argument has yet
been advanced for placing the new
chemical engine in McClellan Hose
Company '8 house. There is every
reason for giving it to the Liucolns.
As has been pointed out in the News
a chemical engine is merely to taokle
small fires and hold them down until
others arrive. As the Lincolns answer
all alarms and is more centrally locat
ed so aa to reach every section of the
city in the shortest possible time, it
is with thom that the chemical should
be plaoed.
The insurance^men know their busi
ness and cannot be blinded bv so small
a thing as a chemical engine. They,
declared that a steamer was needed to
give proper protection to the factory
district and nothing less will answer
the purpose. Give McOlellans a
steamer, and put the chemical where
it will be the most useful.
In another column appears a com
munication from Charles W. Barne
kov in which he tells how certaW
municipalities in California have suc
cessfully wrastled with the dust
problem. s jW warvs ?been one
* "jipection to sprinkling the
? ? tfith oil, in the manner^stated.
xs, it is said to stiok to the
shoes and make spots on women's
dresses. In California, it is declared,
this trouble, is'not experienced.
As the dust in this city 'is almost
unbearable it would be a good plan to
try the oil, sprinkling one street for
some time so as to watch the result.
Perth Amboy would welcome any
means to solve the problem.
The meeting of the Chamber of
Commerce demonstrated the fact that
the business men and oitizens general- j
ly are fully aroused to the needs of
better streets in Perth Amboy. Keep
up^the agitation. While paved streets
are at the foundation of all improve
ments, to keep them in Rood
condition is absolutely necessary.
This cannot be done if they are to be
continually torn np. To prevent this
it is necessary to go below the founda
tion and place all the pipes and con
duits, which are likely to be laid in
the thoroughfare, before the pave
ments are laid. This may greatly de
lay the paving, but the work should
be done right if it is done at all. The
first expense is enough and when the
money is paid the people want some
thing to show for it.
Not a street Bhould be paved nntil
a pnblio sewer, large enongh to drain
the streets properly, water and gas
pipes are laid. If this is not done the
oity will see the day when it will be
regretted. Public sentiment seem to
flavor asphalt. It is well known that
-asphalt once cut is never as good
t^gain and, once started, it wears
The following remarks by United
States Senator Davis need no com
ment, but they furnish food for
thought :
"Every year every local paper gives
from 500 to 5,000 free lines for the
benefit of the community in which it
is located. No other agency oan or
will do this. The editor in propor
tion to his means does more than any
other man, and in all fairness, man
with man he ought to be supported?
not because you happen to like him
or admire his writing, but beoause a
local paper is the best investment a
community can. make. It may not be
crowded with great thought, but
financiallv, it is of more benefit than
both preacher and teacher. Today
editors do more for less pay than any
man on earth. Patronize your home
paper, not as a charity, but as an in
Summer Outing.
The season for excursions of Sunday
Schools, Churches, Societies, is at

Walter O. Walsh, Jr., the Distriot
Passenger Agent of the New Jersey
Central at Newark, N. J. Mr. Walsh
is one of the best known excursion
managers in this section, and the

tion. Amone the excursion resorts
reached by the New Jersey Central
are Atlantic City, Mauch Chunk,
Lake flopatcong, Asbury Park, .Ocean
Qrove, Highland Beaoh, Boynton

Revenue from Refuse.
The commissioner of street clean
tag in New York city, Mr. Woodbury,
has been explaining how the munici
pality derives a revenue from every
bit of street sweepings and refuse
collected in New York, and he is
proud of the good results from the
city's incinerator and "digestor."
"Now, what do you suppose," he said,
"frequently clogs up our sifter?
Why, hairpins! Do you know we sell
tons of them and get quite a rev
enue from them? And what do you
suppose came out of the 'digester'
the other day? Two one-dollar bills. I
After the refuse is sifted," he con
tinued, "it goes into the digester
and later on is covered with oil.
The top is skimmed off and what do
you think we do with that? Why,
that goes to Holland or France and
comes back to this country as per
fumery." ? N. Y. Sun.

"Of course you have a genealogical

"Oh, yes," suggested the hostess,
carelessly. "But we don't think much
of it."
"You don't care much for such
'things, perhaps ?"
"Oh, it isn't that, but this don't seem
to We much good."
"Not complete enough, possibly?"
"It goes pretty near back to Ad?m, '

??Floating Gardem" of Mexico.
Nature and man work together with
incommon accord in forming the cele- -
brated "floating gardens" of the Lakes
2halco and Xochimilco, near the City
af Mexico. An English naturalist, who
recently visited them and found them a
paradise, tells how they grow. Float
ing clumps of entangled peat, moss,
rushes and grass are caught, combined
ind anchored by stakes, or long sap
ings of willows and poplars, which are
iriven into the muddy bottom, where
they soon take root. Fertile mud is
then ladled up and heaped on the float
until a real island is formed, which is
quickly transformed into a garden
where are grown flowers, melons,
?ourds and other kinds of produce/
which are daily carried to market
:hrough a canal leading into the cityM
There are hundreds of such gardens oft,

Or. Howard's Dyspepsia Specific; Regular
Price 50c., C. A. Sexton's Price 25c.
The Special half price sale of Dr. How
ard's specific for the cure of constipation
and dyspepsia by C. A. Sexton means
the saving of a few dollars on every
family's yearly bill for medicines.
Each 50 cent bottle (Mr. C. A. Sexton
sells it for 2oc) contains sixty doses of a
medicine that is pleasant to take and
which can be depended upon to cure the
worst case of constipation, dyspepsia or
liver trouble. Mr. C. A. Sexton has so
much faith in the superior irierit of this
medicine that he says: ''If Dr. Howard's
specifio does not cure you, come back to
my store and I will return your money."
If you are troubled with constipation,
headache or dizziness, or if yonr foci
does not digest naturally and easily, you
cannot afford to let pass tl.e special price
that Mr. C, A. Sexton is making this
week on Dr. Howard's Specific.
Mr. 0. A. Sexton is giving his custom
ers a chance to try Dr. Howard's specifio
for the cure of constipation and dyspeps
ia at just half the regular price, 25c.
And every package in sold under his
personal guarantee to refund the money
if it is not satisfactory.
A Gentle Reminder.
"I don't quite see the point of that
remark of yours," said Mr. Skinner, the
grocer, as he tied up the package of
"What remark was that?" asked the
"You just remarked that some men
had an off-hand way of doing things,
and you wished I was one."
"Yes, I wished to remind you that
your hand was on that sugar when you
weighed it." ? Philadelphia Press.
