Will be Made the Entire Length of Staten Island Sound—For Big Vessels. A deep channel through the entire length of Staten Island sound from this city to New York is now in pro spect. Former Mayor Peter Bonuett, of Elizabeth, chairman of the joint waterways committee, representing the Elizabeth Board of Trade and the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce, today received word from \V. H. Tay lor, of Jersey Citv, that the latter had been informed by the Chief of the Engineers cf United States of the government’s acceptance of his pro posal to construct the new twenty-one foot channel in Staten Island sound. The appropriation bill provided that as soon as the proposed lines of chan nel had been laid out and accepted by the government officials, part of this sum should be immediately available. Now that this point has been reached it is expected that the work on harbor improvement, which will be of in estimable advantage to Elizabeth and tne territory adjacent to me wuumi, will be proceeded with at once. The work covers 3,766,150 yards of dredging, and should be commenced within thirty days of the acceptance of Mr. Taylor’s bid which was Octob er 10. This channel begins just east of Shooter Island, and passes between it and the Staten Island shore. South of this point the principil'drecging re quired to obtain twenty-one feet of water at low tide is near the mouth of the Rahway river, ahd between Carteret and Woodbridge creek across Storey’s flats. These liifes were laid out by Col. Barlow, U. S. Engineer, and reported favorably to Congress, February 3, 1900. The act authorizing the ex penditure ot $696,000, for the execu tion of this work was passed in June, 1902, and made $100,000 thereof im mediately. Congress at its last session increased this available sum to $250, 000; and, as the contract is now awarded, the amount necessary to complete the project will no doubt be speedily appropriated. _ WILL RETURN TO BAYONNE Woman in a Destitute Condition Recently Came Here from that City. While policeman William McDer- • mott was making his rounds this morning, his attention was called to the case of Mrs. Maggie Gilsgo, who at the present time is living at 96 Fayette street, with her five months old baby hoy, without any apparent means of support. McDermott inves tigated and found that the woman came from Bayonne, where she had been 'deserted by her husband, Frank Gilsgo. The policeman notified Over seer of the Poor, Lawrence Dalton, who told the woman that he would give her money to go to Bayonne, where it would be best for her to go, as she could then become a charge on that city. This she agreed to do and will leave tomorrow morning. Of Interest To Many. It is not genera ly known that more thin one third of the deaths are from kid ney diseases.

Blouses of these descriptions may be worn all winter bv young girls to school, providing they wear some thing warm beneath them. They are easily laundered; in fact, not as much trouble to iron as the now passe heavy shirtwaist, which took so lone to dry, and which, when finished was, as a rule, stiff, uncomfortable and ungrace ful. The first blouse is finely tucked across the yoke and tops of sleeves, the sqaares of heavy lace then being set on from under wnich the material is cut away. It takes two dozen squares,of lace to trim the blouse. The other blouse is tucked very muck in the same way, except plain spaces are left for the straps of lace to fit in. Both these blouses are.very simple anil easily made. SAYS HE DREW KNIFE. Deunis Mahoney was arrested by Patrolman Schultz last night. Josef Grubez claimed that Mahoney hart drawn a knife to cut him. Mahoney said he was in the latter’s saloon drinking, and upon giving Grubez a five dollar bill to pay for drinks, Grubez kept back $2.45 for an old bill. This did not suit him and he objected and Grubez says he drew a knife. As no w’ituess was present and the complainant says he did not see the knife open, the charge could not be proved, the case was dismissed. BAPTIST CHURCH.

A shoe should always fit closely around the instep so as to make it impossible for the foot to slip forward or crowd the toes. It ought to be firmly held right there.
