Tho political pot in Perth Amboy ii
Retting near tho boiling point. Th
i gaino is fast anil it promises somo in
teresting developments. Tho wood
are. fell of wonhl-lio candidates to
i the Board of Water Cominissioncrs

As tho annoiutmonts are to be madi

It is said that some would about as
soon see a minority representation ir
the commission and have their man
one of the majority than to have their
candidate shnt ont altogether.
As a gentle reminder to some of the
patriotic societies in this city, it
might ho noted that School No. 1 is
sadly in need of a (lag, judging from
the olio seon Hying from the staff on
that building when school iB in

worse for wear. It would seem that
some organization would see to it thnt

it stands should roplace this old one.
Leap year just came aronml at the
proper time for those who like n vaca

on Sunday, next year. This is not so,
however, for tnov all leap over Sun
day and fall on n Monday. The first

If Church festivals and entertain

this is indeed a veiy happv Christmas
