OF BOROUGH DOGK.
Joseph Fiigen will be Allowed to
Land his Boat there for $20 Per
A speoial meeting of the borough
council was held in Borough Hall last
night for the purpose of considering
the proposition of Joseph Fiigen for
nse of borough dock for landing ex
cursion boat running between here
and Sea Breeze. After considerable
argument it was decided upon motion
to let him have the privilege of land
ing at the dook for $30 per month in
advance. The borough will have a
special offioer there to enforce order
from 12 o'clock noon till the last trip
of the boat at night. Last summer so
many complaints were made about
the nude bathing off the dock and
also about the ^swearing ,and vulgar
language used there, that it kept many
people away from the dock who would
have gone there and derived the bene
fit of the cool breezes on warm summer
nights. The borough officials think
it necessary to make arrangements for
proteoting^the people from that and
they can go there with their families,
faeling that everything is all right.
Another enjoyable feature will be
that the party who takes charge of
the dock will have the privilege of
keeping ice cream, soft drinks, con
fectionery. It is understood that the
party will be appointed next Tuesday

TOO MANY SPARROWS.
The sparrows are getting to be very
destructive birdB around here. They
have driven away most of our song
birds and there are very few left be
side the robins. Although the spar
rows are so much smaller than the
robin, they walk boldly up to them
and steal worms as the latter dig them
np and will even fight them for the
worms if theW)bins resist them. They
are making themselves nuisances in
other ways also, by hopping down in
the lettuce beds and eating the heads
of lettuce. One of our citizens has a
unique contrivance of tins hanging on
strings around the lettuce beds to
