Wilber for rch street., was referred to immittee. There were no ale liquor license was bury Wolff. of Street Commissioner ted quite a wrnngle and lan charged him with i had sworn to the bill|as it. He said a bill for m outrage and lie would 3 one of the committee. d know where the money went to. He said it had rained the greater part oi one ween, so trim trie wagons could not be used and he wanted to know how some of the men got in sixty, fifty-five and some only five hours. Commissioner (juinlin said he had forgotten the bill of G. McDonough, when he put in his bill at the last oouncil meeting and had in cluded it in this bill'ot the last two weeks and this bill was oorrect. Hillman said,he was incompetent to fill the position. The mayor said it would be impossi ble to find a connoilman or even a Street Commissioner who would not make a mistake. The Jersey Central Traotion fran chise was then taken up on second reading. The floor was then given to anyone in the audience who had any thing to say and Mr. Wilson, as usual, made several statements, the same as on former occasions with the addition that Mr. LeGree had stated that they could not get the consents, or at least enough consents to go through Stevens avenue. He said, here is a petition before the council of sixty-two and a half per cent, of the property owners on Stevens avenue, asking the com pany to go through that street, which was more than enough, as the com pany needed only fifty-two per cent., and he did not believe in allowing the company to come into town and hook on the M. and S. Traction company the way they wished to, Councilman Galligher did not think 1' it would be right to grant a franchise to any company to run on the streets where a franchise had been granted to another company. Councilman Hoffman stated that there was a clause in the franchise with the M. and S. company that if one year from date of the granting of the franchise they did not complete their lines on tiie streots named by them in their application, that the said application for said street, was null and void, and as the M. and S. Traction company had not r lived up to their agreement to extend ' \ their road on Bordentown avenue to 5 the borough limit, therefore their t franchise for Bordentown avenue was ■ null and void. Mr. Galligher then said lie did not believe in letting another company come in and not make them live up to their agreement, they had trouble enough with the M. and S. . % The application was Jaken up on k /second reading and adopted as amend Wf e l, up to the fourteenth part of the T fourth section. The second section k created quite an argument and after I considerable discussion, it was thought [■best to leave it to the borough coun Mselor. The second reading was then ■Continued until the next regular meet ■ ing, November 3. The grade map of Henry street was accepted. Charles B. Miller was- granted the contraot for ourbing Church street, he being the only bidder. The resolution by Counoilman Gor don that John Qninlin be paid $80 a month, to act as Street and Water Commissioner, was opposed by Mr. Hillman. Councilman Kerr said that the Street Committee was as much to blame as jfl Qmnlin, that Mr. Hillman had not ■ requested the Street Committee to W meet, but he was not in favor ’ spending a lot of money, ‘ we’re all to blame. ” The mayor appointed Mr. however, at $80 a month .appointment was confirmed. k NEWS ITEMS.

The largest number of women em ployes in any line of work are employed in the United States postal service. Some of the highest salaried women in the world are employed thus. More than one-third of them are past middle age, and many are past 70 years, says the Chicago Tribune. Many of the women are mail wagon drivers, having long and lonesome trips in uninhabited parts of the country. In great numbers they are employed in the rural free delivery. Nearly all the experts in the dead letter office are women. They have to perform tasks which to the average per son would seem impossible. It is their duty to take charge of the 6.000 pieces of mail which go astray every year, and they must see that these waifs get to their proper destinations, if possible, and if not they are returned to the senders. Many of the rural post offices are filled by women. The reasons why a large number of these rural post offices are in trusted to women are not hard to find. The work is usually light and is such as can be handled by a woman. It is the general opinion that women in such po sitions have given the best work to the department. GREATEST CHEESE MARKET. Alkmaar. Holland. Hold* World** Heoaril in Quantity of (Tieewe Slii|>I>o«l to Other Point*. Alkmaar is not only the greatest cheese market of Holland, but also of the world, says What to Eat. From this town yearly 10,000,000 pounds of cheese are sent out, ’et the visitor, even on market Friday, finds no amount of busi ness commensurate with these figures going on in the quiet town of 10,000 in habitants. The reason is that the cheere is made in the dairies in the country round about Alkmaar, and only brought into town to be shipped away. On market day the peasants from the surrounding country begin to flock into town very early, bringing with them loads of red and yellow balls of cheese The high, clumsy carts with long curv ing tongues, on one side of which the horse is hitched, are quite as picturesque as the peasants themselves in gala at tire After unhitching and caring f< r their horses, tinloading the cheese and piling it in an orderly pile in the open square, they wander about visiting with their neighbors, while they wait the r turn in the weigh house A Joplin woman, according to the Mews-Herald, was on a train recently when, while leaning from a window, si 9 coughed out her false teeth. She In sisted that the train be stopped lnstan - ly, for she was going on a v(6it to hi r sister, who, she declared, would never, never recognize her without her teeth.
