TUESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1903.
Tonight, unless all signs fail, a
strong Republican club will be organ
ized and launched out into the present
campaign with a boom that is intend
ed to carry it successfully through the
entire winter and many future cam
paigns. It is a movement in the right
direction. The Republicans of this
vicinity have too long been split into
factions, one following one loader and
one another, all claiming to be labor
ing for the best interests of the party,
yet, by their very actions, doing all
in theij power to bring about Repub
lican 'defeat. Thorough organization,
in wl/ioh the party will be united, is
thnlonly hope for the Republicans in
Pf»th Amboy and it looks as if this is
wfiat they arc going to accomplish
tft night. Success largely depends upon
tie effort to keep on or the other of
tie factions from showing itself.
flf no one really wants those peanuts
at. Police Headquarters, Chief Burke
might have them prepared, and feed
tlibm to the prisoners when they are
locked up 'for a day or 'two. This
would save the city the expense of
i^^ingcrackers and cheese.
The Evening News is now engaged
’ in the trying and difficult task of
' moving from its present quarters in
' King styet to its new home in State
'street. Naturally our system is some
what upset and our office more so.
There will be no interruption in the
issuing of the paper, however, but if
it is a littlo late reaching you, or,
, perhaps, is not as satisfactory as it
1 has been, we ask the public not to
j blame the newsboy for being slow.byrt
ho lenient with us for a few d^ys
until we get put to rights and,'we
assure our readers they will have a
paper larger and better than ever be

new school show a patriotic spirit in
collecting money am^tig themselves

of Education for t^’e new building.
No more appropriate gift could be
given the school laud it is one that

“Among a big batch of recruits as
signed to my company a while ago,"
said a captain of infantry stationeit at
a far western post, according to the
Washington Post, "was a gaunt, gawky
Kentucky lad, of the mountaineer
class, and not much above 20 years of
age. He was growing so fast that he
was as clumsy as a St. Bernard pup.
and he fell all over himself in drill
Notwithstanding his perfect willing
ness, he was so inapt a soldier that 1
attached hint to my quarters in the c a
pacity of dog-robber or striker. Soon
afterward my company was sent out
for target practice on the ranges. My
striker from Kentucky beat out every
man in my company, some of them
veterans wearing the ‘distinguished
marksman’ medals, in a common canter.
He was as crackerjack a rifle shot as i
ever saw in the army and I'd be will
ing to tiet that there's not a shootist
In that team tlr.il lately won the
Palma trophy in England that could
otitshoot him. The gawky Kentucky
boy's performance on the range filled
me with amazement, as it did every

shooting, and when he was through 1

He says that for the first six months in
1903 New York's lemon imports were
72,356,340 pounds, valued at $1.367,074

the remainder from Italy: hut it:

Known as "Two Bitu"—
•‘Did you ever hear the expression ‘two
bits’ used as an equivalent for a quar
ter of a dollar?” asked a New Yorker of
a reporter for the New York Mail and
Express. "The term is commonly used
in the south and west. Not one person in
1,000 even of those who habitually use
the term knows its origin.
“Even as late as the close of the
eighteenth century the silver coinage of
the United Spates had not superseded
the Spanish 'milled' dollar in the west
and south. Fractional currency was
particularly .scarce and to obtain this
the Spanish ‘milled’ dollar was rut up to
make change. Halves and quarters, of
course, suggested their own names, but
when the quarters were cut in two the
word ’eighth’ was discarded for ‘bit,’ a
small slug having the value of
nts. Many curio collectors have these
slugs in their possession, although, of
course, they have long since gone out of
use as currency.
"So with 'thrip,’ used in New Orleans
and the vicinity as an equivalent for the
nickel or five-rent piece. Thrip’ is
merely an abreviation of ‘threepence.’

Altogether, the English and French

Two English and two French observers
have been engaged upon the task. The
observations were made at Greenwich
and Paris simultaneously, and, in order
to obtain similar results, the instru

The results of these observations have

A recent sea-serpent story coming
from England tells liow a marine
monster apparently tried to swallow
the good ship Glengrant, of Fraser
burgh. At the first onslaught it lifted
the vessel "at le*-'l six feet” as it
dived underneath her, but, fortunately,
when it came on again tin oily sailor
man who kept his head dashed below
and got a gun. It is not I nown wheth
er he hit it; at any rate, the monster
had had enough and cleared off. The
sailors say this serpent was nearly
200 feet, in length, with a head like
d seahorse, a long mane, great green,
elist ening ey? s and an enormous
mouth and teeth.

Customers of opium arc not all of the

slaves of the syringe and slaves ot the

are those who take the eirug lit the form

second class—the smokers—comprises
the largest number of victims.
