Alderman Gannon made an earnest
effort to get the improvements for the
Are department started at the meeting
?f' the aldermen Monday night and
also to have a steam fire engine added
to the equipment. It was to be ex
pected that opposition wonld arise to
the purchase of a steamer, but why
the aldermen delay in carrying out
what they themselves voted was neces
aary, is hard to understand.
Several weeks ago a program was
fixed which included a new house for
Washington Hose Company, a chemi
cal eneine and general improvements.
That would seem to be enough in
structions for the Fire Committee.
The aldermen were unanimous in the
matter. It would be interesting to
know what steps the Fire Committee
has taken to ascertain the cost of the
improvements thus passed upon and
how soon before something will be
done. It is to be hoped the city will
not have to wait as long as it has for
an improved water department.
Street Commissioner Weirup has had
?everal flagstone sidewalks laid in
Woodjf \Jjge road at the city's expense,
the ^ ^ to be ir Heorod from the pro
owners. "These sidewalks were
favorably commented upon by a great
many who visited the oemeterv Mem
orial Day. Now if the commissioner
will oast his eagle eye in some of the
? eider -sections of the city he might be
able to find some more walks needing
attention. The oity does not hesitate
to make the property owner of ordin
circumstances, who perhaps owns
oaiy his own '^home, lay sidewalks,
lmi< the apparently well-to-do in the
more aristocratic [neighborhoods are
left unmolested and people oontinue
to stumble along over roots and
through mud and sand whioh are to
be found in front of some of the finest
houses in the city.
Judging from opinions expressed at
the meeting of the Board of Aldermen
last night, the effort to get a steam
fire engine in Perth Amboy will be
opposed to the last. There [^eems to
be an opinion that the pressure from
the new water main will be sufficient
to fight all fires. The News maintains
that in a manufacturing town, where
factories are using suoh great volumes
of water, sufficient pressure can be
had but for a short time, if at all.
A steamer is the only solution of the
problem. As for paid firemen, a man
will have to be paid to care for the
horses the aldermen propose to buy
and he can be depended upon to keep
the steamer in (proper condition. As
we have before pointed out, we may
not need the steamer often, but when
we do. we want it badly. Alderman
Gannon's action was in the interest
of the people and the manufactures
The hospital will receive about $160
as a result of the sooiety circus. It
is a small sum considering the time
and energy given by local men, many
I ^
of whom neglected their business to
assist in the snocess of the affair.
They did well afid deserve all the
praise they are receiving. It is evi
dent the hospital is popular.
Perth Amboy is hard to beat in any
line. Sinoe power boats have oome
into vogue, the local builders have
been turning out the best orafts and
the best engines to be found. In sev
eral raoes recently local yachts have
won honors. Those who are to sur
pass us have got to get up pretty early
in the morning.

The If amber Fmumc4 by Man Ex
ceeded by Those of the Lower
Many of our scientists, until quite
recently have been reluctant to adroit
that a number of the lower animals
possibly possess other senses than
ours. So much new and undeniably
aftirmatory evidence is. however, now
being offered on this point, that
there can be no longer any substan
tial reason for doubting that the five
senses inan imperfectly exercises are
by no menus all that are possible to
sentient creatures, says the Scientific
^nt: such sense not possessed by
human beings, but to a greater or
less degree almost universally pres
ent in mammals, birds, rtptiles. fish
and insects, is what perhaps may be
called the sense of localization. It
enables its possessor, apparently bv
its sole use, to find a desired spot. It
is evidently closely connected with an
instinctive and perfect memory of
distance and direction. That the
homing pigeon excrcises it to some
extent, though undoubtedly nided by
the landmarks it recognizes, is In
disputable; that the honey bee has
it in its fullness and perfection can
not, after the careful experiments of
Albreclit Bethe in Germany. be
Examples of insects that possess
an X-ray sense, not only among Eu
ropean but our own hymenoptera,
can be multiplied indefinitely. Only
one or two of the senses peculiar to
the lower animals are here noticed.
Lubheck suggests that "there may be
50 of them."
Engtlah Women Knf Starch

Modern martyrs to vanity are
Northumbrian women. The acquisi
tion of the pale, ethereal complexion
so much admired by their men leads
them to the practice of a form of
beant-y culture which has lately re
sulted in the death of Jane Mold, who
succumbed the other day to an ill
ness induced by the habitual con
sumption of raw starch and uncooked
rice, says lllack and White.
It is a well-known practice in the
north, and hundreds of women who
work in the fields have the w.hite
magnolia complexion resulting from
this treatment.

Christening; a Railway.
Engineers are, as a rule, sternly utili
tarian, but there are occasions on
which they indulge in sentimental
practices. One of these occurred the
other day on the completion of the first
transcontinental railway in Africa.
When the plate-laying gangs from llu
luwayo and Salisbury, respectively,

telegram was sent to the contractors
and engineers, who at once arrived on
the scene. The rails were joined and
two engines proceeded slowly toward
each other from each side. Attached to
the drawhead of the engine from SaJi?
bury was a bottle of champagne and
as the two engines met it was broken
and the new railway was named in the
orthodox manner.? London Telegraph.

Induced Dr. Howard Company to Make
Special Price.
After a gn at deal of effort and corre
spondence C. A. Sextou the popular
druggiut, lias succeeded in getting the
Dr. Howard Co., to make a special half
price introductory offer on the regular
tifty cent size of their celebrated specific
for the cure of oonstipatiou and dyspepsia.
Dr. Howard's e peoific has been so re
markably successful iu curing constipa
tion, dyspepsia and all liver troubles,
that C. A. Sexton is willing to return the
price paid in every case where it does not
give relief.
So great is the demand for this specific,
that C. A. Sexton lias* been able to se
cure only a limited supply, and every one
who is troubled with dyspepsia, oonsti
patiou or liver trouble should call upon
him at once, or send him 25c ceuts, and
get sixty doees of the best medicine ever
made, on this speoial half-price offer with
his personal guarantee to refund the
mouey if it does not cute.

"Rest is not quitting the busy
career," says the poet. The truth of
the saying was impressed on an Ar
kansas family by Lulu, their colored
cook. She was fat, lazy and "notion
al," but her cooking was perfect, and
Mr. and Mrs. Law ton ignored her
whims and reduced her work {o mini
Oood cooks were so hard to get that
the question of adding a feather's
weight to Lula's duties was discussed
in a subdued whisper. One day LuLa
resigned her position.
"Why, Lula," asked Mrs. Lawton,
"what is the matter? Is the work too
hard for you?"
"Well, ma'am," replied Lula, "I'm all
tired out. I'm going home and take in
washing, and rest up." ? Harper's

The lady who was addressing the
leavyweight culture club on the
lervant question and its inadequate
answer approached the peroration of
her remarks.
"In short," she said, "we should en
deavor to make our servants fear us
as much as we fear them."
Here she was interrupted by the
president, who told her that It was
not the purpose of the club to at?
tempt the impossible. ? Judge.
