Is nothing to be done to lay the
dust? The wutyring oart has even
been stopped because the city officials
ask everybody to stop sprinkling lawns
and avoid nil useless waste of water.
As the watering oart had nothing to |
do with lawns, it must be taken^tbat j
street sprinkling comes nuflwr the
head of "useless waste." The mem
bers of the water committee may hold
this opinion, but there are hundreds
of others in the city who think it is
one of the greatest necessities. The
dnst now lays thick 011 all thorough
fares, yet the people must suffer.
Whose fault is this? Why doenj
Perth Amboy have a scarcity of water
when there is said to be an abundant
supply at Runyon? Why has not the
water main, which is to be completed
by August, been ' laid before ? Why
oould not the oity have afforded to
lay^the new main two years ago as
well ns now? What are you going to
do about it?
These are a few questions of the
hour, meantime we are to continue
to bite the dust, grin j*M-.grit it.
After we han ?lmA. ajo# beesiaSbe of
tJjj^mother f: rom N?^e fjrQnmj

It is greatly to be desired that the
Raritan Traction Company will
take advantage of the clause in the
ordinanoe granting the Elizabethporr,
Amboy & Long Branch Railway Com
pany a franchise in Woodbridge
township, and run cars through to
Boynton Beach without a transfer.
The fact that they already have a
track on the north side of the bridge
is all the more reason why the line
should be direct. It would be decid
edly popular and the Raritan Traction
Company would bind itself even more
closely to the residents of this city.
In some of the sohools in this city
eighty-five pupils are crowded into (
one room. They sit three in a seat '
whioh was meant for two and along J
the wall is a line of youngsters sitting i
on the floor. Other children walk
Kently that they do not step on their
"Please may I sit on the floor, I'm 1
?o hot," is the frequent request of the
orowded little ones. Talk about fac
tory inspectors and orowded condi
tions! What's the matter with a law
Roverning the number of soholars in a
room? It's a case of trying to teach
all and stunting the education of those
who could be Droperly taught under
half decent conditions. Better k^ep
the children on the waiting list and
give those for whom there is room a
good education. Those who are wait
ing will we more healthy outside.
Meantime rush the new school house
Every year the number [of power
boats and launches on the bay in
creases. They dash along so swiftly
that, at night, they have really be
come daneerous especially for the
more quiet folk who prefer to go row
ing. Would it not be a good idea
for every power boat to carry lights
after dark? The yacht club might
take this matter |up as did the auto
mobile clubs in regulating the control
of that vehicle. It would be well re
ceived by everyone.
If everyone in Perth Amboy should
patronize only Perth Amboy concerns,
what a successful city this would be.
The money earned here that is spent
in New York stores would, within a
few years, enable local merchants to
great department stores like in
'the metropolis. The business that is
sent to New York to be done would
enlarge every plant here, which, in
turn would employ more men, who
would spend more money and so it
would go. When will this mid-sum
mer's dream be an actual faot?
The Pennsylvania railroad has mill
ions for stone bridges, elevations, four
tracks, six tracks, tunnels ahd every
thing that is modern and up-to-date,
but not one cent for safety gates at
Hall avenue and Washington street.
Doubtles these grade crossings will be
abolished some day, but why not the
gates in the meantime?
Now that the freeholders have heard
the public on the subject, it is time
to fix the site for the south approach
to the bridge. The contractors are
ready to begin work over there and
ttie matter oannot be delate^} any
longer. Settle the matter, once for
all, and allow the good work to go on.
There are several good beaches in
Perth Amboy for bathing this year.
The sport promises to be more popular
than ever. Perth Amboy*s one *great
advantage over other places is the
water front. Not everyone appre
ciates this. Say what they will, there
are few cities which can surpass us
and there is no nioer place to live.
A short time ago we announced the arrival of a shipment
of the popular Wheeler Pianos and a full line of Phono
graphs, etc. We are justly gratified to say that all of
them have been sold, and that we now have on hand
A NEW SHIPMENT OF THE
which we offer for Cash or easy Weekly or Monthly Payments.

There is no difference in the minds
of even the most captions New York
critios over the beauty and splendor
of the new big Casino show "The
Runaways". They are agreed that
it is the most gorgeous thing ever
dresBed for the American stage. They
are certain that the production has
more and prettier girls than any show
ever seen on Broadway. There is no
question that there are more genuine
song hits in "The Runawavs." than
in any attraction J of recent years.
The comedy of the splendid product
ion is in the hands of eight particu
larly capable players, there are three
prima donnas and no less than three
distinct groups of "show" girls. One
group of six, stately blondes and bru
nettes, are called "Tiie Six Widows
of King Goulash II, " and t ley take
preeminence among the show girls
only because they have the most work
to do. The second group are the
coumic opera queens, twelve in num
ber, who are, if anything prettier
than the first group, and then come
the violet girls, the peach girls, the
fern girls, the strawberry rgirls and
the daisy girls, forming another and
possibly an even prettier group.
Colonel John S. Flaherty, manager
of the "New Majestic Theatre," has
concentrated his attention the past
fortnight npon a new ventilating sys
tem whereby he is confident in the
belief that the Majestic will be the
codlest, most oomfortable and best
ventilated playhouse in the metrop
olis this summer.
The natural advantages of the loca
tion of the Majestic Theatre situated
as it is at the opening of Central
Park, would alone suffice to make it
cooler and more comfortable place of
entertainment than any of the down
town houses facing the torrid Broad
wav pavements. There aro 52 exits
from the Majestic and many of these
have been fitted with iron screen doors
so that they can be utilized at every
performance in keeping the air fresh
in the theatre.
What with so comfortable an audit
orium and so seasonable diversion as
"The Wizard of Oz, " there isno like
lihood that the Majestic's dooi? will
be closed this summer.
The men who have made the largest
fortunes in business are those who

An Unfortunate Remark.
One pleasant day last fall, so the
? tory goes. Prof. Hadley, of Yale,
>vas s-trolling through the beautiful
)ainpus of Dartmouth college with his
wife on his arm. They were admiring
the beautiful buildings which dot the
lampus, several of them having been
irected by wealthy alumni. Present
ly they came to an especially noble
hall, built of stone, and occupying a
jommanding site. Over the main en
trance was a marble tablet which an
nounced tha't the hall had been erected
oy "John C. Blank as a memorial to his
President Hadley stood and looked
it the noble pile for a moment. Then
tie heaved a sigh that was almost en
"Ah," he said, "that is what I should
:ike to do for my college."
And to this day, the boys declare,
President Hadley cannot understand
why his wife should have looked so
Horrified. ? St. Louis Mirror.
