WEDNESDAY, MAY 20, 1903. Chief Bnrke, Detective Huff ami the local police department are crown ing themselves with laurels these days. Last week they captured two river thieves after the New York police hod let them go, findinc nothing to incriminate them, and yesterday a house w^s^ raided ai}<^/ aW $2,000 worth of plunder was recovered. Some of this belongs in New England and the owners for the rest will donbtless be found before long. Chief Burke and bis men have done a good work. But while these latest achievements shine out more brightly than others, it is the every day duties of the police force that really shows the efficiency of the department. It oan safely be said that in no other city in the State, considering the size and character of the population, is there better order maintained. Chief Burke and his men have cleared the town almost en tirely of the tramD nuisanoe. Con sidering the number -of saloons, but few drunken men are seen on the streets. Disorderly places, such as disgrace ot?>v "ities. are unknown ^here. T^CJiielf'^MAds^Tor law and or^er mixed with good commotf sense. The citizens appreciate the good work and the ohief has the confidence of the entire community. The old familiar waltz, "In the Good Old Summer Time, ' ' has been conspicuously absent from the list of danoes at balls and picnics lately. K was good enough for anybody last January, bat then, human nature is very changeable. The fact that the first step has now been taken toward giving Perth Ain boy a better water supply and that it will be completed before summer is over, is welcomed news to residents of this oity. There is evidently some thing wrong when people are asked to stop sprinkling lawns just at the time when the grass needs the water most. As soon as the new pipe line is comploted, even if it reaches only as far as the south side of the river, this city will have a supply that will more nearly meet the demands upon the water department, and next year the new line will doubtless be con tinued under the river and to the reservoir, wliioh will probably be built before 1905. Thomas N. McOarter, president of the Public Serivce Corporation and Former Attorney General, gave a dinner Monday night to his brother, Robert H. , who has just succeeded him to the latter position. Notables of both Democrat and Republican parties were present, but Grover Cleveland was not mentioned among the guests. Think what an opportun ity was lost! It might be said the man of the hour, it least the man re ceiving more public attention than any other just at present, right here in New Jersey and the gathering Monday night not honored by his presence. Even if water is scarce it is rather hard to deprive the horses of a drink as they pass along. Why not get the fountain at the post office corner in operation ? It is sadly missed these days. PROTECTING THE BIRDS. Easlaad la Far Ahead of America la Preventing Ravages on the Songster*. The protection of birds has been carried so far in England that fruit growers and farmers are complaining bitterly of the ravages of thrushes, blackbirds and. buMtinches. These winged beau-ties work great mischief in gardens and orchards, says the New York Tribune. American readers of British books recall with pdeasure vivid descriptions of the diversion of shooting young rooks, in the early spring with short range, small-bore rifles, and of the succulence of the young rook pies cooked by experts. But it now appears ' that the English rooks have not been thinned out with sufficient thorough ness, and these birds do harm to va rious farm crops. East of the Mississippi inmost of the states north of the Potomac and the Ohio the protection of birds of every kind has been much underdone. We have no rooks or ravens fcer#, but it is certain we don't protect our winged friends as we ought to protect them. Where He Lost Oat. Hixon ? You are certainly one of for tune's favorites. You have succeeded in everything. Nixon ? Yes, everything except love. Hixson ? How's that? Nixon ?

I ORGANIZED LABOR, 31 asaseflLsasasasastoaresnasHsammeroeeB 1 Many of the Lowell, Mass., striking cotton operatives are facing great destitution. Some are actually in need of bread, bnt rather than plead for help many of them have abandon ed their home in qnest of work. The payment for rent on property occupied by strikers is suspended. John Mitchell, president of the United Mine Workers, who came to New York to attend the meeting of the Executive Committee of the Nat ional Oivic Federation, is stay in sr in New York for a few dayB. He ex plained to a reporter that he is writ ing a book on trades unionism and is collecting data. At the eleventh annual meetins of the Iowa Federation of Labor, one of the resolutions adopted condemned Carroll D. Wright, United States Commissioner of Labor, for utterancos in public meetings and conventions that reflected on the oredit and im pugned the motives of organized labor and proved that he had no interest in common with the working class. President Roosevelt will be memoral ized to appoint a union labor man in his place when his term expires or "upon his resignation. " Where Klehelleu Is Hurled. Although a ^tern edict has gone forth to no longer bottle Tip the new wine of science and letters in the old receptacle of Richelieu, even official iconoclasts have spared the familiar dome which covers the great cardi nal's tomb. The new Sorbonne, how ever elaborate, wfluld hardly be the Sorbonne at all without Richelieu's splendid chapel as its heart. Students and professors no longer have to bow before the altar, and no Sor bonne doctors fill the pulpit, but wlio so chooses can enter and either find a service, or at least view the beautiful sarcophagus beneath which lies the dust of the great Armand Jean du 1'lessis himself, in the midst of the institution he builded anew, lavishing the millions of his private fortune thereon, and even mortgag ing the estate of his heirs. Above the tomb 'has in recent years be^u suspended his carefully preserved cardinal's hat, while the head itse-lf, savagely severed when the tomb was violated in 1793. has also been mirac ulously recovered atid replaced on the embalmed remains. Even the tomb itself was carted away and kept for many years at the museum. A Pair Well Met. Having in the course of his 09 years of life buried 26 wives, a farmer of Buziens, in France, has just murried a 27th. Nor is the lady a raw beginner at the game. She has buried 18 hus bands. ?

A business man who follows this method al- j ways fails. Large profits are real ized only by selling the best quality at such a small margin of profit as to insure continued trade. Ten per | cent, of one customer's business for a whole year is a larger profit than ' one hundred per cent, on an unsat isfactory sale.

Sextou obtaiued for them, in getting the Dr. Howard (Jo. to allow the regular 50 cent size of Dr. Howard's specific for the cure of constipation and dyspepsia, to be sold at half price, 25 oents, and have bought huudieds of bottles. ' Every bottle of the specific sold by C. A. Sexton has had his personal guar antee to return Jtlie money if it was not satisfactory, but none has come back, ?howing the wonderful curative power of this remedy. It is only receutiy, on the persistent ( advice of C. A. Sexton that Dr. How ard's specific linn been sold for less than 50 ceuts, but he urged that it would be better to secure a quick introduction in Perth Amboy in this way and the result h is proven bis good judgement. If you have not already taken advan tag# of this chance to get a mouth's medical treatment for 25 cents, be sure t ? call at C A. Sextou's to-day, for he has only a mu.iII amount of the specific on hand. Hetnrn of Feather Urdu.
