At present, however, it is of little use as far as widening the street is concern ed as it has not been filled in. Why not complete this work and have the street graded? It would be a big improvement. A petition to the council signed by a few property owners would draw out the strength of the opposition, if there is any. The Kvening News, yesterday, printed a cut of the new voting ma chine to be used in the Fifth ward this fall. It looks complicated, but the directions are plain and there should not be much confusion in using it. A society circus was given at Deal, during the past season and after the division had been made it was found that $1,000 had been cleared for the Monmouth hospital. But Deal and yerth Amboy are two different places. The wonderful success of the Inter State Fair at Trenton this year doubt less makes the proprietors of the old 1 Waverly fair grounds wish that place 1 was still in operation. It was a popu lar event in it time, but the cities j grew all around it, driving the farm ers further back. After all the fair ^ is just what the farmers choose to make it. The evenings are now approneliing when a club house is wanted where men of affairs about the city can con gregate, pass a few hours in diversions of different kinds or enjoy a quiet ^ chat in some cozy corner. A house not too large, but one fitted out com plete is something that is needed in Perth Amboy. When is it going to come? Now the trust company is going to have a cornerstone laying. Four cor nerstones all for important edifices, is no small record for any place. It denotes the growth of the city. f SITES IN AID OF SC ENCE. trnmentN of Denmark, Sweats [ud France Cooperate In .'laUim Meteorological lu% tfMti&atiou. irst permjjB^^fetation for k i|fc JSjurope, and the first in t^B dished under governmental Is that at Vjborg, in the ex northern part of Denmark. Pio neer work in sounding the upper air with meteorological instruments which were carried up by kites was done at the Blue Hill observatory, near Boston, but that it is a private institution. It is worthy of note that the greatest alti tudes yet reached by his method (about three miles) were attained there. Some what extended experiments have been made In the United States, too, under the direction of the Washington bureau, and while these may be renewed in the future, they have hitherto been brief, temporary and more or less disconnect ed. At Viborg provision has been made for more continuous exploration, the governments of Denmark, Sweden and France cooperating iu the scheme. Dele gates of international reputation in weather science from these countries met to fix the site and plan other de tails, says the New York Tribune. The most important building at the Station is a tower 33 feet high, mounted on circular rails, so that it can be ro tated' easily, and left open on one side. No matter from which direction the wind blows, the tower is turned with this gap to leeward. Thus the opera tor can sit within, where the windlasses are, and watch his kites. The latter, of course, naturally take their lines down ♦ nrJrwi Tknrn ndn/ilncenn controlled by electric motors, one be ing held in reserve for immediate use in case the wire on the other breaks while In service. From an account which M. Teisserenr de Bori, the director, contributes to the latest number of “The United States Weather Review,” it appears that sys tematic work has been carried on since last August. An effort is made to fiy the Ivites by night as well as by day. and the staff is divided into three sections, one relieving another every eight, hours. The value of the data obtained is be lieved to depend largely on the contin uity of the observations. Hence it is de sirable to have self-recording barome ters, thermometers and registers of hu midity and wind force tell their stories as often as possible. For this special service all four types of instruments are combined in one, and this is placed in the outermost kite. Usually two or more kites are sent up tandem, the greater the number the higher the ele vation reached. What the meteor ologists want to study is the situation in the upper parts of "highs” and “lows" as these drift over the country, and com pare it with that at the surface of the earth at the same moment. Light on the structure and cause of storms, cold waves and other phenomena may be thus obtained, and accuracy of forecasting en hanced. The great majority of the ascents have been to heights of 1.500 to 2,000 meters, or in the vicinity of a mile; but occa sionally the kites go up 3,000 to 4,000 (peters. The amount of wire whicU must be let out depends partly on the eleva tion of the kites, and partly on the angle which the string forms with a horizon tal line. On an average the length of wire is 50 per cent, greater than the |k‘ight attained. The duration of each Bcent is mainly dictated by the strength l^the wind. As soon as the predeter mined amount of wire is run out, the windlass is set, to hauling it in. A fres]/ instrument is substituted for the other one (the removal of whose records takes time), and the kites are started up once more. In case of breakage, time is required for repairs; but there is always at least one extra instrument on hand. The ap paratus is so adjusted in a basket that it will not suffer harm, unless it gets a heavy fall. A letter is attached to this, offering a reward of seven francs (about $ 1.40) to the finder for bringing it back. Then if a kite gets away there i a chance of recovering the property. Such luck has been enjoyed even when kites have drifted over 100 miles from the station. Once within 24 hours three instruments. 15 kites and nearly nine miles of wire were lost in high winds. The more valuable part of the apparatus was afterward found. Worthy of linltntion. Among the many canine qualities worthy of imitation, a l.over of tire “four footed brothers” emphasizes their contented resignation to the cir cumstances of life. Dogs, he says, do not go about trying to do good to other dogs by urging them to bark in the same key and bite with the same tooth as tjiemselves; nor, which is a merciful provision of nature, do tfiey become bored by the people with whom their lot is cast and want to try a new master every few months.

Over and again a dog puts his heart before his outraged stomach and lets his af fections dominate his indigestion rather than desert his master for a better board. Many a master, con cludes the dog champion, would do well to emulate in points like these the meanest of his "little yellow curs.” Protection for Hooks. “We have to varnish all our books in my country,” said a Chinese. “Oth erwise they would soon he eaten into a gray powder by a little black insect, like a beetle, that takes to books as a cat takes to ashes.

Tike Ynkamlk of Swnlli America W hen Domesticated Becomes a Useful Servant. The natives of Venezuela and ad joining countries on the north side of the river Amazon often avail them selves of the services of the native crane to care of their poultry, and also use it in the place of a collie or shep herd dog, to guard and herd their do mestic animals. This remarkable bird, which the Indians call yakamik, is found in a wild state in the great forests that lie between the northern coasts of South America and the Ama zon river, particularly in Venezuela and British Guiana. The birds never leave the forests unless shot or cap tured. They travel about in flocks of from 100 to 200, in search of the berries, fruits, an insects upon which they subsist. Their usual gait is a slow and stately march, but they enliven them selves from time to time by leaping up in the air, executing eccentric and fancy waltzes, and striking the most absurd and preposterous attitudes. If pursued, they endeavor to save them selves by running, tor their flight is so weak, according to Sckomburg, that when they attempt to fly over a body of water of any considerable width they are often compelled to drop upon it and save themselves by swimming. When alarmed, they utter the pecu liar cry which has obtained for them the name of trumpeters. The sound is something like that produced by a per son endeavoring to shout the syllables "tow, tow, tow, tow, tow, tow,” with his mouth shut, or the doleful noise made by children on New' Year's day with their trumpets. The yakamiks usually deposit their eggs in a hollow in the ground, often at the foot of a A nest generally contains ten eggs of a pale green color. The young birds follow their mothers as soon as they are hatched, blit do not lose their pretty downy covering until several weeks old. The yakamiks are very readily tamed and prove valuable ser vants to the Indians, who domesticate them, and as they are courageous, and will protect animals intrusted to their care at every risk to themselves, even dogs are obliged to yield to their au thority. They may be trusted with the care of a flock of sheep or domestic fowls, and every morning will drive the ducks and poultry to their feeding places, and carefully collecting any stragglers, bring them safely home at night. A yakainik soon learns to know and obey the voice of his master, fol lows him when permitted wherever he goes, and appears delighted at receiv ing his caresses. It pines at his ab sence, and welcomes his return, and is extremely jealous of any rival. Should any animal attack its master, the ya kamik in utmost fury attacks it with wings and beak, driving it away. It presents itself regularly during /heals, from which it chases all rto fnestic animals, and even the negroes who wait on the table, if it is not well acquainted with them, and only asks for a share of the eatables after it has driven away all who might aspire to a favorable notice from the family. TRAVEL THIRD-CLASS. Repretientiitive* of All ('1h«sok Meet 1'pon Neutral (Srouml on Hiik lund’s Hallway*. Nowadays everybody travels third— that is, if one may be allowed the ex pression, some of everybody. There is no class or set of people, unless, of course, it be royalty, of whom we may not meet representatives in a third class railway carriage, says the Lon don Spectator. Everyone is on a foot ing of equality; it is perhaps the only perfectly neutral ground. We believe theie are some men who if they never traveled by train would never know by actual experience anything about those below them in position. But for this meeting ground the working classes would remain for them simolv a nic ture or a problem. They see a crowd in the street; they discuss wages or the housing question; they admire the toiling figure ol' a farm laborer thrown into relief by a sunset, and wonder, from an aesthetic point of view, why anyone should prefer to live in a slum. Beyond this they know nothing. With the appearance of their domestic serv ants they are, of course, familiar, but often they know little of their person alities. Again, there are others—gen erally women—who make a point of visiting occasionally at the houses of poor people; but even in this case they often remain not much the wiser. Both hosts and guests are generally shy and somewhat embarrassed. They talk re spectively down and up to each other’s supposed levels, neither are quite natuYal, and the end of the interview comes as a relief. But in a train we are all at our ease, even the poorest and least educated. The Lawyer One of Them. One of the best-known law yers of the city had a case in court against a man who kept a cigar store opposite one of the large hotels. The man had in some way broken the law. “Do you mean to say,” asked the lawyer, “that you have made a living out of that store for one year?’’ “Yes,” replied the man, “gentlemen come from the hotel early in the morn ing and ask for 15 and 25-cent cigars. I hand them out five-centers, and they don’t know the difference.” “Impossi ble!” said the lawyer. “Oh, no, it isn’t,” said the storekeeper, calmly, "I have done It on you several times.”—Phila delphia Public Ledger.

"Now,” she observed, in a menacing manner, “take these to Smith, the gro cer, and tell him to give you a quart of the best treacle. And if you hurry up, and are a good boy, your mother will love you. If not, you'll think you’ve been in a railway accident.” "But why,” said the lady visitor, when the boy had departed, “did you give him two jugs—one would have been suffi cient for the treacle?” “Ma'am,” said the gentle mother, “you don’t know my Harry.
