FUND STILL
i $28 SHORT.
_ j
Hospital Fund Was Increased by
$9 Yesterday-Up to
the People.
AFTER $100 MARK.
The effort to make the hospital fund
reach the *100 mark bv the first of the
new year received some encourage
ment yesterday when *0 was added to
the total. This was brought in by
three different peoplo nnd makes the
amount thus far received ?7B. This is
$••>8 short of the *100. It is for the
peoplo of Perth Amboy to say whether
they think tho liospitnl is worthy their
consideration in this regard. The
necessity of a morgne and reception
room for patients has been demon
strated many times. People who liavo
relatives and friends would not like
to visit them and find a corpse in tho
same ward witli their loved ones who
are ill, yet this is just what has hap
pened and is liable to happen again
until the morgue iR built. Tho people
pride themsolves that they are able to
support a hospital. They should see
to it that tho institution is supplied
with these two necessities.
The following is the list of contri
butions to tho hospital fund to date:

OYSTERS ARE BLAMED.
Typhoid Fever in Oranpe Said to Have Come
from Bivalves.
An outbreak of typhoid fever in
Orange is believed to have been caused
by contaminated oysters. Many cases
reported from different sections of the
city have been investigated by the
Board of Health amt it is declared the
sufferers have been made ill by oysters
procured from a bed lying in water
tainted with typhoid abcilli.
The board does not hold t lie local
dealers responsible for the outbreak,
for the oysters were undoubtedly pur
chased by them from wholesalers in
good faith. Secretary Schuler, of the
board, gives it as his opinion that a
number of oyster beds along the New
Jersoy coast should bo abandoned fat
once bccanse some of thorn are nenr
the month of streams that are sewered
into.
When people want help they adver
tise in 1 lie Evening News. Those
looking for help should bonr this in
mind.
On the eve of the Now Year we extend to our friends and customers the eom.pli
ments of the seasons with thanks for patronage during the past year—and solicit a J
continuance of the sain forth. > coming year. *8
Our apprecia.. >n , '. • desy wd'l not be ganged by the quantity of goods you JS

Wo court personal investigation of everything we sell. Our stock is the largest,
our store the cleanest, our prices the lowest to be found anywhere. «
