Appointments Art .Madi by
Mayor Samuel Clark.
Jpectal to the BVBNINQ NBW8.
Metuchen, Jan. 3.—Common Coun
cil at noon Wednesday met and or
ganized for 1913. Mayor Samuel
H. Clark has completed the first year
of hi« term and it will go down In
local history as one of great achieve
ment. His record speaks for itself.
With the close of 1912 there step
ped out of office one man who long
ago won the sobriquet of "Watch
Dog of the Borough Treasury." He
is Edward Kramer, who has served
the town a number of times as coun
cilman and who has rendered valua
ble service. As chairman of the
street committee, Mr. Kramer set a
pace that will be difficult for his
successor to follow.
In addressing council yesterday,
Mayor Clark called attention to the
fact that the town was practically
free from debt except the school
bonds, and he advocated the borrow
ing of $30,000 for needed Improve
ments, calling attention to the fact
that the Interest on such a loan
would be of small moment compared
with the returns on the Investment.
The police force this year will con
sist of ten men instead of sixteen.
John J. Flaherty was reappointed
chief marshal and the other marshal8
for 1913 are: Willard Hutchinson,
Frank Schenck, Oeorge L. Clarkson,
Titus Smelzer, Charles B. Schenck,
Fritz Hokanson, Jesse C. Wenlger,
Sam P. Watson, Ellas GueBt.
Howard S. Wilson was reappointed
borough clerk. F. M. P. Pearse bor
ough attorney; James A. Grimstead,
overseer of the poor; C. P. Hull mem
ber of the Board of Health.
In making his appointments Mayor
Clark proved his disregard for polt
tlce Inasmuch as two of the marshals
appointed are Republicans, three are
Democrats and five are Progressives.
Recorder Weber is a Progressive,
James A. Grimstead is a Prohibi
tionist, C. P. Hull Is a Republican.
These committees were named:
Police, is. H. veen, H. j<\ sanrora;
water, C. B. Veghte and H. B. Jolin
|son; streets, E. Soper and C. B.
Veghte; finance, II. B. Johnson and
D. D. La Forge; lights, I). D. T,a
Forge and E. H. Veen; poor, H. F.
Sanford and E. Soper.
Assessor John W. Breen asked for
and received an Increase In his salary
of $75 per annum. It was the con
census of opinion that the assessor
was entitled to this Increase; also
that the salary of the horough treas
urer and borough clerk should be in
creased An increase for these offi
cials, also some provision for the
compensation for the borough recor
der may be brought up for considera
tion at an early meeting of the coun- '
cil. The recorder is dependent alone
on feeH for his compensation. The
rent of his office for the year is near
ly $76 and there are many months In
the year when the fees in the office
amount to less than $3.00. For the
past four months he worked for
honor and the sum of $4.eo. ;
After Borough Treasurer Tauslg
pays the premium bond the amount
of salary he receives is small com
pared with the work he must do.
The salaries are the same today as
they were when the town was incor
porated as a borough, and Inasmuch
as the labor in the case of every
official has increased it would seem
that the salaries should increase in
the same proportion.
For a year Metuchen has been
without a street commissioner and
none has been named this year.
Borough treasurer and collector,
Charles M. Tausig filed his bond for
$10,000, which was accepted.
Sayreville Schools to Reopen.

The Descent of Man.
Some real estate dealers in British
Columbia were accused of having vic
timized English and Scotch settlers by
selling to them (at long range) fruit
ranches on the tops of mountains. It
Is said that the captain of a steam
boat on Kootonay lake once heard a
great splash In the water. Looking over
the rail, he spied the head of a man
who was swimming toward his boat.
He hailed bim.

Pimply! Well, Don't Be
People Notice It. Drive Them Off
With Olive Tablets.
A pimply face will not embarrass yon
much longer if you get a package of
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets. The pim
ples will vanish after you have taken
the tablets a few nights.
Nothing ever cleansed the blood, the
bowels and the liver like Olive Tablets,
Olive Tablets are the only successful
substitute for ealomel—they oil the
bowels; theTe's never any sickness or
pain after taking them
Olive Tablets do all that calomel
does and just as effectively, but their
action is gentle and safe instead of
severe and irritating.
No one who takes Olive Tablets
is ever cursed with "a dark brown
taste," a bad breath, a dull, listlese,
"110 good" feeling, constipation, tor
pid liver, had disposition or pimply
Olive Tablets are made of pure vege
table compounds mixed with olive oil.
Dr. Edwards spent years among pa
tients afflicted with liver and bowel
complaint*, and Olive Tablets are the
immensely effeetivo result.
Try them. one nightly for a
week. Then look at yourself in the
glass and im how yea feel. 10c and
