WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27. A NEW OltDEll OK THINGS. Tho retirement of Theodore Strong as tho republlctin loader of Middle sox county comes as a surprise to most of those who have boon follow ing tho political game. Usually a loader, who has developed into a boss, bucked by a powerful machine, a does not step dawn and out until lie has been so soundly bouton at the polls that tile re is nothing loft for him to stand upon. Cox. of Cincin nati, Odell of New York, Lentz of Eshox county in our own stall-, and numerous other bosses are instances to prove this. It cannot he said that Strong lias been defeated us these men wore While his machine was toppling, it still hsd plenty to stand on. It was realized, however, that one more election would llnish it, hut it would take the defeat of the republican par ty to do It. To Governor Stokes belongs the credit for forcing Strong to retire at this time. The governor knew that rfor Strong to retain the leadership through tile coining fall campaign would mean the loss of Middlesex to the republicans and probablv the loss of the state. Yet, to get Strong to retire while under lire must have been no easy task. It is evident that Strong was given the choice of retaining what leader ship lie could hold in Middlesex poli tics uml not he re-appointed on the Slate Board of Assessors, thereby running the risk of losing both the leadership and the job. or take the appointment and relinquish ills hold upon tho party. Arguing on tile principle that a bird In the hand is worth two in the bush, Strong took the appointment. By this action he keeps himself be fore the public. Should the repub lican party meet with serious defeat, under new leadership he may hope to Bee his old-time followers return 10 him in their distress and again seek his advice, tints returning him to a power stronger than over. Looking at the matter this way. Strong was wlso in dropping the lead ership for the office. The future is iu the hands of tho republicans. The suggestion that a cabinet bo formed consisting of a doz en or more leading party men from all sections of the county, with Con gressman Howell as the chairman, is a good one. Mr. Howell stands, to day, the only republican to whom all ' —--i I-: Stylish Spring Hats It is uecessary to use the same care in selecting a becoming hat as you would a suit of clothes.

Prices $2 00, $2 50 and $3 00 uANNON & SHFEHY Smith Street factions in the county can look to for guidance. He holds a place among his constituents which would be impossible for any other man to fill at this time. With all factions represented in the cabinet and with Mr. Howell as chairman, the affairs of the party should be manipulated successfully. For a leader to lead and not bo a boss is a difficult task. Theodore Strong has proven this. Whether a party can win a tight without a one man head has not been demonstrated clearly. The opportunity is now of fered. Let it be tried. HKFORM NOT COMPLICTK. Governor Stokes is not going to al-! low the legislature to place him in a hole before the people of the state. 1 There is a movement on foot to fix j a limit for the introduction of new bills and then not adjourn sine die until at least five days after the last of the passed bills have been in the hands of the governor. This would bo excellent if the legislature was passinb bills in tin orderly and intelli gent manner and was handing them on to the governor one after the oth er all through the session. But it seems the legislators want to carry their proposed1 reform only half way. They would put a slop to tho gover nor making laws or refusing to do so as ho soos 111, but they insist upon saving the great lmlk or Mils until the closing hours for final action aud then dump several hundred of them upon the governor's desk at once. It will be impossible for the governor to give those proper attention in five days and he has very properly told the legislature so. By passing a great batch of bills aud then adjourning sine die, the legislature relinquishes its right to pass a measure over the governor’s veto and thus the governor alone I becomes the law-making body of the state. This Is wrong. last the bills be passed or rejected within a reason table time after their Introduction and then handed up to the governor and the evil will be eliminated. Tho legislature is on the right track in this matter, only it has not gone far enough. Give us tho other Half! of j the reform and all will be well. MARKING HTItUKT CORNNHK.

We know just where Vo go lo it and would turn into it,t unconsciously. But. Perth Amboj* Is growing. Many strangers art! eoulinn,ally moving into our midst. They soon learn where lo find Smith street, State street, New Brunswick avenue and a few other thoroughfares, but otherwise they are left entirely in the dark. They hear about something happening in Kear ny avenue, Lewis street, Buckingham avenue or Kirkland place and per haps on a Sunday afternoon start out to see if they can find the locality. They might as well stroll through a woods as far as learning the loca tion of streets is concerned. Transient visitors coming here to find a party have to be led almost to tho house they want to find, for to tell them that their friend lives on such and such a street means nothing for they cannot find that street any easier than they can their friend’s house. This matter is really of more im portance than we are accustomed to credit it with. Every well governed city should, have its streets properly marked at every corner. It is no more than just to .those whom we are constantly inviting to come and make their home here. ''■IIIiBIUBI HUB !;B i'B 'IIKl'B '■ ■ ■ 'P IS YOU LIKE IT. I The republicans may take a Car, son.

"Don't advertising pay, old man? What have you got to say?” 1 thought, he’d like my work so much And think my plan so nice That he'd not only pral " my wares, But pay me doubio price.

Science Comes to Tlielr Relief With a Notable Discovery ill This Age of Gorin Research. Scientists have at last found how to conquer skfn diseases. For gen erations medical men have been ex perimenting with interna! treatment to cure eczema, but the progress in the germ theory has shown that the old-fashioned medical schools were on the wrong track. As it is now known that eezeiha. psoriasis, saldt rheum, ringworm and all kinds of rashes are caused by germs which lodge in the skin, the best skin specialists have come to be lieve that the skin can be cured only through the skin. The application externally of oil of wintorgreen. mix ed with soothing Ingredients, strikes right at the germs and destroys them effectually. Properly mixed this makes a powerful wash, yet so mild and harmless that it can be used as a gargle. This mixture is prepared ac cording to the prescription ol a well known skin specialist, Dr. Decatur D. Dennis. It is compounded in t hi cago, and luis been sold for years by druggists under the label of D. D. it. ' Preset-lotion. A few drops of this reinarKaoio j prescription applied to the skin gives INSTANT RELIEF from that terrible Itch JUST AS SOON as the liquid is applied the itch is gone and by re peating the application in a few hours the poor sufferer domains out of pain. In conjunction with a little D. D. D. soap, the skin sufferer has a toilet which cures while it cleanses. We vouch for the merits of D. D. D. Pres cription and would not recommend It to the people of our home town if we did not know that we had a really high grade remedy. "If 1 hadn't found relief in your D. D. D. Prescription 1 would be in my grave,” writes Airs. A. Phillippe, of 1261 E. 53d street, Los Ahgeles, "for I tried four different doctors and several different remedies, but 1 seemed to grow worse with skin disease all the time, till 1 thought blood poison was going to set in. "1 found so much relief in ytlur trial bottle of D. D. 1). that I sehfitp you for a dollar bottle and it ojJJed me, so if you choose to do so you can use my name in full.” "P.
