TURNED DOWN. Justice Fort Renders a Decision Against the Central Electric Company. ELECTION WAS LECAL. Justice Fort has rendered a decision in tlie case of the Central Electric Company against the township of Woodbndge in favor of the township. The lighting commission in the town ship awarded the contract for lighting Woodbridge, Sewaren and Carteret to the Carteret Electric Light and Power Company, which is now seeking to enter this city, and the Central Elec trio Company claimed the action was illegal for the election of the com missioner who awarded the contract nad not been according to law. One of the claims put fortli by the Central Electric Company was that the election, at which the commis sioners were chosen, had not been properly advertised. The matter was carried into court and the decision has just been rendered against the Central Electric Company. It will be remembered that when the contract was awarded, the Central Eleotric Company’s bid was consider ably lower than the Carteret company, but it was claimed the Central Elec tric Company had not lived up to its contract during the previous year. The fight was bitter while it lasted. The Central Company shut off the lights at once and for some time the villages were in darkness until the Carteret company could get in shape. For this the Central company was severely condemned and it is still unpopular in the township. EACLE ATHLETIC CLUB OFFICERS.

The practical housekeeper will learn with regret that the popular bib apron has become passe, and that little French aprons with embroidery and lace ruffles have takon their place. These new aprons, however, are cer tainly pretty and dainty, some made with round corners, and all ot' them small and of a verv sheer material. Although very attractive looking, as for practical use they cannot be compared with the bib apron, which not only kept the waitress’ waist clean, but always gave her a neat appearance. Bnt Dame Fashion does not always have in view, practicabil ity, and her latest cry is these little fancy aprons for the waitress. A pretty cap for a maid is made from a handkerchief just tucked all around until it is reduced to the pro per size. The other caps, collars and cuffs are about the Bame as have been worn for some time. The Eton collar is by far the prettiest, although the straight staiched band fastening in back is used a great, deal.
