Machine on Exhibition which will be Used in the Fifth Ward This Fall. EXPERT IsTllT CHARCE. All Voters are Welcome to Try the Machine —Working is Simple After Explained— Cannot Vote Until Curtain is Drawn— This Unlocks the Machine—Opening the Curtain Locks it Again. Voters all over the city and par ticularly of the Fifth ward, are re ceiving instructions on the new voting machine. An expert is in charge and will remain in this city for the next fifteen or twenty days to instruct all who wish to learn. The voters of the Fifth ward are particularly urged, but everybody will be shown the workings of the machine. The Evening News recently publish ed a cut of the machine with a orief explanation as to how it is worked. J o is very simple after once explained and it is believed the machines will be generally adopted throughout the State. A person going in to vote un locks the machine when he moves that handle to draw the curtain. He cannot vote until the curtain is drawn. The levers are then before him, one for each ticket, and little pointers drop to the name of each candidate on that ticket when the lever is pull ed. If it is desired to vote the / straight ticket all that is needed is to push the handle over which controls the curtain and the machine locks, registering the vote. To split a ticket, push back the pointers over the names you do not wish to vote for and pull down the pointers over the names on the other tickets yon do wish to vote for. If a person does not go to the machine too much excited he oan easily register his vote and no boss will know for a certainty how he voted. OBITUARY. Mrs. Ida K.

WORRELL’S 46 Smith Street Tel. Call 200 L. 2 / i / A FESTIVAL OF MUSIC. Large Audience Present in Simp son M. E. Church Last Night. DELIGHTFUL PROGRAM. De Witt Garretson, as Organist Distinguish ed Himself—Other Selections Rendered by Artists—1Miss Forest Makes Another Appearance Before Local Audience Vocal Soloist Admired. The Methodist Harvest Home cele bration ended last night with a music al festival in Simpson M. E. church. There were about 300 people present . and all sjx>ke highly of the program rendered. The attraction was tne organist, DeWitt Garretson, one of Perth Amboy’s sons who has recently graduated from the High School here and who is studying music with the intention of devoting his life to the art. Mr. Garretson was not dis appointing. He rendered several diffi cult selections in a manner that pleased the most critioal and display ed a natural talent which marks him a rising musician of no mean ability. Mr. Garretson was assisted by Miss Cornelia Marvin, contralto soloist, and Miss Lucia Forest, harpist. The latter has appeared before a Perth Amboy audience before and has de lighted all who have heard her. She understands perfectly how to draw the soft, sweet tones from the harp, keep ing the audience intensely interested at all times. Miss Marvin's voioe is cultured and while it is beautiful if given a building sufficiently large to hold it, the sweetness was lost last night because the ohurch was too small. i v Mr. Garretson was fir&f'” to appetCT^^^H He rendered'St. Ceoelia Offertory, by Batiste, and Allegretto, by Wolsten holme. Miss Marvin followed. She sang Gounod’s “Repentance.” Mr. Garretson then gave Handel’s “Largo ” Miss Forest rendered the closing selection in part one of the program. She gave Les Adieux by Godefroid, and Air de Ballet by Hasselman. Beginning part two, Miss Marvin sang “Absent” by Metcalf, and Chap man’s “Tnis Would I Do.” Mr. Garretson’s next selection was “Com munion in G” by Batiste. Miss Forest's Overture. Parish Alvara, was very pleasing, and Mr. Garretsou ren dered the closing selection, March Militaire, by Gounod. Mr. Garretson was at a slight dis advantage owing vo the low water pressure which is depended upon to pump the organ. Twice, when play ing the heaviest, the organ gave out. The festival was a decided success. The proceeds above the expenses will go toward the fund raised annually by the church to help the needy.
