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

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.
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. ”

night. Every member of the congre

to the Citizen requesting it to an

cently stated in the Evening News.
Miss Mulholland feels that the pub

ingly annoying. ”
The Evening News is not desirous
of bringing any more notoiiety to the

Doren it was so stated in the News.

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
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

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

A Joplin woman, according to the

when, while leaning from a window, si 9
