Mr. and Mrs. Dooling Entertained Many
Friends Sunday Night.
Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Dooling, of
tho Heights, celebrated the tenth
anniversary of their wedding Snuday

present and all had an enjoyable time.
Tho dining room was prettily trim
mod with white chrysanthemums and
ferns anil the table was loaded with
good tilings to eat. Mr. and Mrs.
Dooling were the recipients of many
beautiful presents. Among those
present were: Prof. T. J. Heaney, of
Brooklyn, Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Vin
cent, of Jersey 'City, Miss Nellie
Sullivan, of Milburn, Miss Brown, of
New York, Miss St. Clare, of New
Haven, Conn., The Misses Helen and
Sylvia Rechnitzer and Mr. and Mrs.

Savrevillo, the Misses Kathryn and
Celia Monaghan, of New Brunswick.
Many Things that Some People Complain of
are an Advantage.
W<s think it about time ‘‘tho [recent
acquisition at the foot of Henry
street” bo let rest. It must be very
weary—that ‘‘recent acquisition”—of
being flung abonc, picked up and
thrown at our former City Fathers
ovorv once in a while. It certainly
hns given pleasure to a great many
people from far and uoar the past two
summers and beforo and siuoe to many
of'onr own town, as a moans of get
ting cool, puro air it has been a bless
It 1ms also brought in considerable
mouoy of late and has been of benefit
to Messrs. Rose and Hillman, Andrew
Furman, etc., for loading clay, ere.
Hoes ‘‘Equality, eto.” mean that the
city water, electric lights, paving oi
stroets, trolloy cars, telephone, etc.,
aro ‘‘the tombstones marking the in
ability and inalertness” of our former
Mayors and councilmen? If so, the
new aro glad to have ‘‘the town cov
ered with them” and see no reason
for rapping tiio said persons. We
cannot expect perfection and notwith
standing tilings go wrong onco iu a
i while we have lots of comfort with
those very ‘‘tombstones.” We
wouldn’t be without the trolley cart
witli their shortcomings for a mint ol
mouoy, nor the electric light with itt
honntifnl glow, even tliougn it has a
fancy lor playing hide and seek once
in a while, not the city water with
its opportunities for extra cleanliness,
etc. Get out your petition about the
tax if vou want it, sign it, get it sign
ed and presented, but ‘‘act honorably ’
and stop rapping those who have
brought into our borough very many
comforts it did not possess before.

Experience of Old World.
The climatic history of the old world
will repeat Itself in America, says the
National Magazine. If forest destruc
tion, at Its present rate of recklessness,
should continue much longer, our conti
nent will have to dry up. So will aD
orator who should venture to urge that
fact upon a boodle legislature. In this
era of lumber trusts. But the fact re
mains. and its significance may be in
ferred from the experience of the Medi
terranean coast lands, where thousands
of god gardens have been turned Into
Gehennas of wretchedness and desola
tion. By tree destruction alone a terri
tory of 4,500,000 square miles has been
withdrawn from the habitable area of
our planet. The physical history of the
eastern hemisphere is the history of a
desert that originated somewhere near
the cradle of the Caucasian race—in Bac
tria, perhaps, and, spreading westward
and southward, has blighted the Edens
of three continents like a devouring tire

Africa and sending its warning sand
clouds far out to seaward.
Snirnr In France,
The price of sugar In France has re
cently been reduced by less than half,
and the consumption has been nearly
doubled. Formerly sugar was a luxury
which rarely reached the homes ol
many workingmen, but now its use is
much more common.

“The former steals to live,” replied

Riiffineer Wan Offered Fifty Dollar!
m Minute for Every Minute tiuined j
Over the Schedule.
There is a little story connected with ■
the record-breaking run of the Lowe
special over the Santa Fe, Chicago to 1
Los Angeles, in less than 53 hours, I
which is not generally known. *
It is related thal Mr. Lowe offered s
the engineer who hauled the train from c
Han Bernardino to Los Angeles—on the
home-stretch of 60 miles—the sum of
$50 a minute for every minute gained
over the schedule. Engineer Warboy
turned the wheels at a 60-second clip for '
each mile to Pasadena, but had to slow
down in the suburbs of Los Angeles. He
pulled into La Grande station, Los An
geles, just 62 minutes after leaving San
Bernardino, gaining nine minutes on the *
whirlwind schedule and thereby earn- t
ing $450 extra pin -money. 1
The Santa Fe passenger department c
will soon publish a pamphlet giving full i
details of the swift flight of the Lowe a
special, which in several instances ex
ceeded 90 miles an hour. An average of
nearly 43 miles an hour was maintained,
in the face of having to cross four high
ranges of the Rockies, and with little \
previous selection of engines or crews.

The action of salt, or chloride of
sodium, as a fertilizer is sometimes very
peculiar by reason of its apparently in
consistent influences. It has the effect
of checking vegetable growth and at
ihe same time increasing the yield ol
wheat and other crops to which it is
suited, says the Southern Farm Maga
Mangel wurzel, beans, cabbages and
onions flourish with liberal supplies o.
salt. It is also highly advantageous tc

According to Henry Tanner, of the

>ne oi the most important influences that
talt exerts cu vegetation Is due to its
arising from the action of the chlorine
which it contains. This is a very' im

utilized. In the ease, lor instance, of a
