The tie-up in the building trades j
which has existed at Wilkesbarre, Pa.,
since the hod oarriers strike was in
augurated a month ago, is about to be I
It is announced that 8,000 clothing
cutters in New York city, who threat
ened to quit yesterday, have reached
a compromise on their demands for
eight hours and extra pay for holidays.
? ? ? o? ? ?
The resignation of all but ten mem
bers of the police force were accepted
yesterday, and Erie, Pa., is without
police protection. The patrolmen
threatened to resign, if their salaries j
were not increased $15 per month.
Work has been resumed at the plant
of the Anchor Pottery Company, at
Trenton, after a strike of most of the
employes because four of the gisrger
men would not join the union. The
non-union men were induced to affil
Trra?nrr? of the Sea.
Divers recently raised from the
Mediterranean, off Sicily, about thirty
old guns which, they say, belonged to
the Dutch and Spanish ships sunk bj
the French in 1676. At any rate, nine
of the guns are adorned with the
ancient insignia of the Netherlands.
There is greater treasure in the sea
than out-of-date guns, and when sub
marine navigation has become safer. |
one may expect exploring expeditions
in the great deep which will yield re
sults as rich as any which crown the j
efforts of explorers on land.
International Telephone*.
Great activity is now being dis
played in the extension of interna
tional telephones. Brussels and Lon
don and Paris and Rome are already
connected. Negotiations are now in
progress between the Russian and
German governments to still further
enlarge the area of international
telephones by a direct, line connect
ing St. Petersburg and Berlin.
Handkerchief* for Soldiers.
The Russian government has de
creed that in future all soldiers of
the empire must use handkerchiefs
? heretofore not one soldier out of
a thousand has indulged in this lux
ury ? and that all the handkerchiefs
must> contain pictures emblematic of
soldier's life, both in battle and in
time of peace.

Forty-Four Square- Inches of Ground
In New York; Valued at Two
Hundred Dollars.
The assessors have been called
upon to assess what is relatively the
most valuable piece of real estate in
the entire city, says the New York
Commercial Advertiser, and have ap
praised it at $200. This may seem
a paradox. But $200 is full value
for the parcel ? and the parcel is in
the Bronx. The "lotlet" is at the
northeast corner of Third avenue
and One Hundred and Forty-ninth
street. It is triangular in shape and
measures 6 inches on the avenue, 14
inches on the street and 13 inches on
the northeasterly line. It, therefore,
contains 40 square inches.
Last May it sold for $200, or $5 a
square inch. That would be $720 a
square foot, or at the rate of $1,800,
000 for a fi^'lot of 2,500 square feet,
a price u^cqualtd even in the finan
cial section of Manhattan. Prior to
the adaption of the full value as
sessment plan the "spot" of land,
whiJh is about big enough for a man
ti^'tand upon on one foot, was as
sessed at about $30 and the taxes
pvere about 70 cents. The assessors
evidently read the accounts of the
sale on May 20 last year, tucked the
clippings a\idy for future use and
swooped do A ll on the owner with an
assessment on January 12 of $200.!
The taxes this year, therefore, will !
be at the $1.45 rate, $2.90.
Peculiar Qnalittcatlonn Required of
Voter* in a Ciertnln 1111
nola Town.
What constitutes a legal residence
and entitles one to vote has been
often a matter of dispute. In his
"Recollections" John Al. Palmer tells
an amusing story of the peculiar
credentials accepted by a certain
town in the west.
The town was in Illinois. One of
the qualifications required of a voter
was residence in the state for six
months previous to the election. On
one occasion a man named Hoskins
appeared for registration; but when
asked how long he had lived in the
state, confessed that the time was
somewhat less than six months.
The registration officer, after tell
ing hiiu he had not been in the state
long enough, hesitated a moment,
then asked if he had "had the chills."
"Ye.(. I had one yesterday," said
Hoskins, "and I feel one coming on
"Put him down," said the clerk to
his assistant. "The chills are as good
as a six months' residence!"
Mr. Hoskins's name was thereupon
placed on the list.
If He Wasn't Hlmelf.
"f say. Jones, that's the third um
brella .you've taken from our office.
I m ouldn't be an ass if I were you.''

long time." ? Columbia Jester.

Wonderful Success of C. A. Sexton Half
Prlce Sale of Dr. Howard's Dyspepsia
Wo aro always glad to print in the Eve
ning News a story about a remarkable
success achieved by advertising, and es
pecially so when the artiole advertised is
one of superior merit.
Not so very long ago C. A. Sexton one
of Perth Amboy's most en erprising drug
ists succeeded in getting the Dr. Howard
Co. to allow him to sell their Specific for
the cure of constipation and dyspepsia at
h?lf price, as an introductory offer.
The results of this advertising have
been pheuomenal, and there has been
hardly a weeK without C. A. Sexton be
ing obliged to order fresh supplies.
Such was his confidence in the remedy
that he personally guaranteed every pack
age or the Specific that has sold, and a
greed to refund the money if it did not
cure. His faith was well founded, for
out of the hundreds of packages he has
sold, only one has been returned.
C. A. Sexton does not know how much
longer he will be able to sell Dr. How
ard's Specific for the cure of constipation
and dyspepsia at half price, but will as
long as his present supply holds out.
Some of his customers have said they
would pay a dollor a bottle rather than
be without it.
