Perth Amboy demands sufficient light at the Central railroad station at night and along the pathway leading to the station. These light& must be kept burning continuously all the evening. This is a small thing for a city of this size to ask. We are ashamed to ask it, thus letting our sister cities know that we are bo far behind the times and allow the railroad to thus ignore us. But to remain silent longer la only playing into the hands of this parsi monious corporation that now turns the lights at the station off after the departure of every train to turn them on again only when_Jhe next train approaches.^PEJMEB," oLLJiiJOY IN A S'lTitably lighted ■ PLATFORM AND PATH DURING THE EN " TIRE EVENING AT THE CENTRAL STA TION. 1 i OUR VACATION PERIOD. " About this time of the year newspapers that ' devote much space to the doings of society are I-describing the festivities at Palm Beach and other southern resorts, and their fashion col umns are filled with styles appropriate for the .southern climate. All this reminds us that there are a great many people who are not enormously rich but who take their vacation at this time of the year instead of during the summer, When one comes to think of it, the • good judgment displayed in making such a choice is realized, provided one is in position r to do so. For instance, many niajr have beautiful homes in New Jersey, surrounded by lovely -grounds, with all kinds of flowers and other _ charms to make the estate most attractive dur ing the summer months. Yet, just as soon as this home begins to take on its attractiveness, the occupants pack up and move off to some seaside or mountain resort to live in a cottage, while the beautiful home is closed, or, at best, L servants are leit to enjoy its attractiveness. J Then, just as the leaves are falling, the flow l ers finish blooming and the frost destroys all [ signs of vegetation; when it comes time to put I. on the storm doors and keep inside, the family 1 moves back, missing entirely the real joys of ~their own home. How much more sensible is the man who will remain at home during the summer, when his grounds are the brightest and when the climate is most desirable, and go away to his 1 cottage in the South in the winter when the dreary months set in, and snow, slush and ttorm are served up to us in all varieties. There -8 just as much to be done in the summer as during winter and a man can get just as much rest and enjoyment by taking his vacation in >inter as in summer. It is only the custom w<> have formed that induces us to take a vacation | during the summer months. A home anywhere in New Jersey, except in c ■ possibly in the larger cities of the state, is de ^cidedly more attractive in summer th ian T, yet the winter is often the only time a jees his home. On the other hand, a cot Florida can be thoroughly appreciate. aontha when New Jersey ip haps, we will all wake up to the true meaning of vacation arid will take it at a time when we can get the most enjoyment out of both winter and summer. FIGHTING WITH A SMILE. It was a notable speech that Governor Wil son made Saturday in the town where he was born. In fact, it is hard to tell which of the governor's speeches is better than another. He has the rare ability of putting words together in such an attractive and interesting form that whenever he addresses an audience he always has something to say that is worth hearing. It will be remembered that when his name was first mentioned as among the likely candi dates for governor, those who knew him best declared that while he was little known to the public, once he got on the stump and began to talk he would have no difficulty in winning the people. The public soon found this to be true and not only were Jerseymen duly impressed during the gubernatorial campaign, but prior to the nomination for the presidency at Balti more, when primaries were being held to select the delegates, practically the whole nation came in touch with the governor during his tours and his speeches everywhere had the same effect. There is no doubt that his won derful rise in public life is due largely to his ability to express his thoughts in such plain, easy and at the same time, elegant language. .Jerseymen who recall the gentlemanly man ner in which the governor broke off relation ship with James R. Nugent who, at the time was Democratic state chairman, will kuow ex actly what the governor means when, in his speech at Staunton, Va., Saturday, he said: "A man can keep his manners and still fight. Indeed I have found that he sometimes dis mays his opponents by keeping his manners and fighting because they apparently do not know how to fight with affability. But the nice thrust of the sword that is delivered with a smile is more discouraging than the thrust that is delivered with a scowl. And there must be some good hard fighting, not only in the next four years, but in the next generation, in order that we may achieve the things that we have set out to achieve." We all kuow what the governor means by j liard fighting and we know that he knows how I to do it, at the same time keeping his temper nmd mniltr.g pleasantly. Those who think they will have an easy time when Woodrow Wilson becomes President have a great deal yet to learn if they think they can "put anything jver" which the governor believes is not just ind right for the benefit of the people. PUBLISHING PROGRAMS. Having just passed through a season when programs and social events are most numerous, the EVENING NEWS is forcibly reminded to jail the attention of its readers to the way in which many of the programs for these events are presented to the newspapers to be pub lished. The EVENING NEWS is glad to receive all die programs of local events that it can get, but programs containing the titles of the selections rendered, as well as the names of those who take part, are extremely difficult to set up in type correctly. Persons having charge of pro grams dash them off in their own peculiar Handwriting, which is perfectly familiar to them, but entirely strange to anyone else. Fhese programs are brought into the news paper office with the request that they be pub ished. The copy editor struggles hard trying ;o make out the writing and to got the names spelled correct!y. He then passes it on to the nan who sets the type, who has his own trou bles in trying to get things right. Finally, it ill comes back to the proof-reader who com pares the lines in type with the manuscript and very often judgments disagree as to ex actly what is meant. There is no time in a newspaper office to run around finding out From different people whether a "u" is an 'u," or a "t" uncrossed is meant for an "1," utc. The best judgment has to prevail, and thus it goes into the paper. Then hundreds of people who are interested in that particular program, condemn the newspaper for getting the program wrong and for spelling names neorrectly. As said before, we are glad to receive programs of all local events, as well as per sonal items and social news that occur in the jity. It would be a great convenience to us, however, and would be much more satisfying to the public if, in writing for the press, great •are is taken in spelling the names so that there can be no doubt as to what is meant. Wilson is urging Washington to have a simple inaugural. Probably the governor would like to ride into the capital on horse back—or .muleback-^^d tie the aniimr1 J,> a I!

He was an Irishman, tall, broad shouldered and red headed. They hHd brought him Into the hospital on a shutter, and, so far as the doctor could see, h# was troubled principally by the fact that he had been overeating. Finally the doctor turned to the nurse and ordered for the patient an emetic. "Look here, doctor," said the Irish man, "there's no use in yon giving me an emetic. I tried It twice in the old country, and It wouldn't stay on my stomach five minutes."—Popular Mag azine. FIRE ALAI1M BOXK8 23—Rarltan Copper Worka. 24—Market and Sheridan Sts. 25—Smith St. and C. R.

The man who cannot recollect his front side from his rear, may get his latitude correct by taking les sons here. His mind becomes a filing case in which he stores away the helpful facts, each in its place, for use some future day. And men who once were failures rank have learned to nail tne scads. they're presidents of trust and bank—ac cording to the ads. Schools do a noble work, in deed, we're deeply in their debt; and no» a school we greatly need to teach us to forget. IVe pofsoij all our pleasures here; we keep old worn in mind, and nurse stale grudges by the year, whch should be left behind. We worry over divers stakes we vainly tried to win; we brood upon our ancient breaks when we should blithely grin.
