The Westminster, it is said, will be abandoned by the Presbyterians this falL Cannot some historioal society or the oity get this valuable old pro perty to be kept without change for ages to come? Before twenty-five /ears have rolled by Perth Am boy will need some inch site for a recrea tion ground. Besides, the building is really the foundation of all the colon ial history hereabouts. It would not tw the same place with the grounds fold for building lots. This seems like a' pretty big proposition, but it is worthy of consideration. (hie by one the old landmarks have been removed. Historical spots are last disappearing. At least one of CbeM relics of our country's early history should be preserved. Many a city would pay many times its present mine to hare it within their limits. Hetmap B. Walker has been appoint ed pos^prtitfer at Orange. This is an? other name to add to the long list ' of newspaper men who has found politic al ftivor among those with whom they labored. Mr. Walker has been for three years the legislative correspond ent for the Newark Evening News and has an enviable reputation for his honesty and square dealing. He de serves all he nas received and will serve the government 'in a capable oteanher. , Great Weather this! One day we gasp for breath in excessive heat ana the next we are experiencing a oold storm. People who dread monotony and live a variety do not have to leave New Jersey, This State serves it up ill all styles either on the farm, city, mountains or seashore. The break in the water main yester day shows the necessity of the new main now about to be laid. When such a break ocours Perth Amboy Would still have the other to fall back upon. Perth Ambo? citizens will doubtless | reap a little benefit from Asbury park's boom. The resort by the sea j I* hunting the country high and low for oofiventions which they can get to meet in Asbnry Park next year. [With a national convention as near as Asbnry, anyone in Perth Aroboy, who so desires, can afford to attend. Persons everywhere are warned of | sneak thieves and porch climbers. This is just the season when they make their greatest hauls and are the most active because of open doors and windows. The warning holds good in Perth Amboy. People going out for a short time should be careful how the leave their house. With all the oollege students going west to work in the harvest fields, we wonder what the country will do for book agents this season. EDITORIAL COMMENT. Prof. Smith is pleased because of the strenousity of the 1903 mosquito, inasmuch as he feels that the public will thus be brought to a realization of the necessity of systematic effort to stamp out this pest. The do nothing policy, and the inclination to ridicule, will not reduoe the mosqui toes by a single inseot. On the con trary, it is becoming painfully evident that unless funds are provided to carry on the work that has been just begun, this section of the world is apt to become quite uninhabitable.? Elizabeth Times. The Fish and Game Commission has decided to buy five thousand black bass from the Great' Lanes to stook the New Jersey streams, and one thousand dozen quail, if thev can be had, to stook the woods and fields. In the meantime the State permits the fishing-pound men to deplete the great natural fishing grounds in Barnegat bay, which annually furnish sport tc thousands of visitors and incidentally create business for shore hotels and give profitable emplovment to many boatmen. We would do better by taking care of the game and fish al ready at hand before spending time and money in importing new varie ties. ? Trenton Times.

One Is Increasing and the Other 1)1 miniahlnir In Number* at a Rapid Rate. The purchase and distribution by the federal authorities of herds of Siberian reindeer in Alaska have been already, if official reports can be trusted, of no inconsiderable benefit to natives who have suffered privations from their own reckless extermination of game In earlier years. The cynomis ludovldanus Is the long scientific name of the short prairie dog, which has been, over large areas of the western country, more of a nuisance than many people Imagine. Until re cently he spread over 68 counties in Kansas, to say nothing of his occupancy elsewhere, damaging local crops to an extent not in keeping with his unobtru sive dimensions. All kinds of poisons were tried on him in vain till the recent discovery of a new one, Its constitu ents not disclosed, which sweeps him off the earth, root and branch, so to speak, leaving of his hide and hair neither bark nor animation; a good riddance of this damaging marmot, which, with its companion in sin, the pocket gopher, has cost the western farmer no end of money by its ravages.

Then She Can Rale Her Children. The mother who has acquired the habit of scolding her children thereby shows that she is n^t competent to train them in obedience, says the Home Journal ?n(J News. For scolding- is & sign of weakness. It indicates that the person who has jt, has not mastered herself and that she knows not how to rule others. The scolding parent is usually an un reasonable being. Irritable, impulsive, quick-tempered, hot-headed. She judges first and calls for the evidence afterwards. She acts as if her little sons and daughters should, even before she instructs them, distinguish right from wrong, and should, before they have seen anything of life, have the knowledge that can come only from experience. When the mother has become a chronic scold, the children pay little attention to her outbreaks or vituper ation. Guilty or not guilty, they ex pect it. They let it in one ear and out the other. They acquire the corre sponding habit of not minding it. Let their father speak once and they jump to obey him. Their mother may order them a dozen times, but they get into the way of thinking that she is not HT earnest until she begins to upbraid them, and they wait for this signal be fore they move at her command. Her first care in the correction of this habit is to control herself. Let her give no order that she does not in tend to enforce, let her tell her chil dren to do a thing only once, and let her resolve not to scold them, wheth er they be good or bad, docile or dis obedient. When she has conquered herself, she will find, to her surprise, that she will have little difficulty in conquering her children. Green Peaa a la Normandle. Wash a few heads of cabbage lettuce, a handful of parsley, three or four green onions and cut them in shreds; put into a saucepan with three quarts of green peas and half a cupful of but ter; cover the pan and let cook over a slow fire without adding moisture. Stir frequently to prevent buruing. When tender season with pepper and salt; turn into a hot dish and serve. ? Washington Star. All Hla Assets.
