RACING AT CLIFTON.
Favorites Win Purses—Garrison and Palmer’s Popular Victories. Although the weather yesterday was raw and cold, the attendance at the Clif ton track was a good one, and the racing was of a most excellent character, both in regard to the number of starters and the quality of the horses engaged. A larger j number of bookmakers were on the grounds than lias been seen for some days past, and nil were doing a rushing busi ness. The track was not in condition for fast time, but the going was very safe. Two of the jockeys riding in tho races came to grief, Jockey Hall in the first, as did also Jockey Carson, who rode Henry George In the second, but neither were badly in jured. Starter Clare was in great form and he handled the large fields of starters quickly, the favorites getting well away in every instance, and backers of these and shorter horses were without excep tion satisfied iu this regard. The talent were somewhat recompensed for their losses of the previous day, as three out of five favorites earned winning brackets. Jockeys Garrison and Palmer each rode two winners. Results as follows:— The racing began with a dasli at six and a half furlongs for maiden three-year olds and upwards, with eight starters, of whom Sandy was made a strong favorite. He won very easily at the finish by three lengths from Clarissa, second, the same I distance in front of Jessie Rank, third. Time, 1.2554'. Mutuels paid $3.70; for a place, $2.95: Clarissa, for a place, $12.70.

Mutuels paid $11.20; for a place, $5.00; Obelisk, for a place, $18.20. This was followed by a race at a mile aud a sixteenth, for non-whiners at Clif ton in 1889. for which seven horses faced the starter, with Tattler aS to 5 first choice in. the betting.

The Hudson County Liquor Dealers Association is on the point of making preparations for an active participation in local politics, and preparations may be made at the meeting of the association next Wednesday for a conference with a view to the organization of a new demo cratic committee. Discontent with the existing machinery 0 of the Democratic party became manifest when, during the sessio'u of the Legisla ture, the liquor dealers found it impossi ble to enforce concession by the Houses of the full measure of their demands in the matter of the repeal or modification of the High License Local Option law. Many liquor dealers then expressed the conviction that an organization of 600 members, like the Liquor Dealers’ Association, should exercise a controlling influence in politics, and they urged the forming of an organization thut would make their strength effective. The result was the passage, some weeks ago, of a resolution directing the calling of a special meeting of the Executive Commit tee of the Liquor Dealers’ Association, at which the subject might be taken under ' advisement. That meeting has not yet been called, so far as could be learned this morning; but at next Wednesday’s meeting of the Asso ciation, current rumor asserts, the meet ing will he arranged. The scheme, as at present under con templation, is for the Executive Commit tee of the Liquor Dealers’ Association to invite a number of conspicuous local democrats to meet with them for consultation. They have their eye on such democrats as - “Ed” McDonald and ex-Senator Babe. The new committee will consist of two or ft .Lmli.pa fvom ,7 and a democrat of influence who ia not in terested in the liquor business. The democrat thus taken into the councils of the Association will represent the Demo cratic party; the liquor dealers will rep resent the Liquor Dealers’ Association. There seemed among those who were interviewed this morning no very clear idea of the exact functions this new poli tical machine will discharge. One mem ber of the Association said that it will not w stand up in antagonism to the regular party organization. Another said that while no conlUct with the regular commit tee will be invited, the new committee will expect to give direction to the party movements. In the view of still u third the new organization will make its power felt only when it is necessary to protect or further the interest of the liuuor dealers. A fourth frankly confessed that he could i not say whether' the new organization would he an opposition to the regularly constituted airthorlties of the party or not. “It will depend,” Tic said, "upon how the regular Democratic Committee be haves itself. THE OLD SCHOOL BOARD'S LAST. A Highly Coitipliihetitiiry and Congratu latory involution. The old School Board met lust night for the last time to transact regular business. A short meeting will be held next Monday night at seven o’clock, to adjourn sine die, just prior to the organization of the new Board, which will meet at eight o’clock. Miss Kina S. Betts, of the High School Training Department, asked for a month’s leave of absence on account of ill health, which was granted. Director Benson took occasion to say that be thought the leave of absence business was going too far. He would vote in f#vor of granting Miss Betts the desired vacation, as he knew she was in need of rest, but it was the last time he would favor an appli cation for a teacher’s leave of absence. Mr. Benson retires from the Board next Monday night. Director Pfiugsten was sorry Mr. Ben son made a speech upon the subject as he had something to say in the same line later on. When his turn came he in formed the Board that Mrs. C. A. Tomlin son, a teacher in school No. 7, who had not lost a day in twenty-seven years, had been suddenly called during last month to visit a sister in Massachussetts who was on her death bed. He had promised to call the attention of the Board to the fact at the last meeting, but had neglected to do so. As the matter came under what is know as the “five day’s clause,” per taining to the salary of teachers wneu absent, the time deducted for four days’ loss of time was ordered added to the next month’s pay. Minnie E. Kelly was appointed a teacher in School No. 13, Annex, mplace of JCmma umuuivi » mv, I'll v» IVOI^UCU. Savali R. McBride was transferred from the grammar department of School No. 3 to the same department in School No. 4, and Katie Worth was appointed to the place vacated. A communication was received from the new Board of Finance stating that it hail organized with John Edelstem as presi dent and William S. German as clerk, and was ready to transact business. Director Pflngsten, of the Committee on Inventory and Printing of the twenty first annual report, called attention to the fact that its distribution was ready sev eral months earlier this year than last. Superintendent Poland said in reference to the report that much statistical inform ation of an important nature had been crowded out to make room for more im portant reading; that while the book was more complete than any of its predecessors, the expense was within the usual limits. In reference to the Teachers’ Class of Physical Training, Director Dugan offered the following resolution, which was unanimously adopted:— Whereas, The teachers of this city during the past year have not only performed faithfully and zealously the duties necessarily devolving upon them, but have exhibited an unusual and highly commendable degree of interest in their profes sional work, not only by the frequent attendance upon teachers’ meetings, both those called by order of this Board for the instruction in the ele ments of drawing and manual training, and those held at other times throughout the year by the Superintendent and City Teacher’s Association; and Whereas, We note with special satisfaction the series of Saturday meetings to be held for the rest of the year for instruction in practical school hygiene and school gymnastics in order that some means may lie found to counteract the evil effects upon the health of our oliildreu of many of our overcrowded and ill ventilated schoolrooms, be it Resolved, That we express to the teachers of the city our high appreciation of their zealous and self sacrificing efforts to improve the schools and to raise the standard of in struction. and that we pledge the aid of this Board to support and extend their efforts by aii means at our disposal; that the school rooms of this city, and the officers of this Board are al ways at their disposal for teachex-s, meetings on application to the President of Board, or Superin tendent of Schools, and that we welcome every thing that will make our school system, of which we feel justly proud, still more efficient. Director Beuson took advantage of this last opportunity to emphasize the interest he felt In the successful efforts to raise the standard of public education in the schools of Jersey City. He envied the member from the Third district the dis tinguished honor of presenting such ti resolution, and would be prouder of its 1 authority than of that of any ho had ] offered during his two years’ connection w iin iur uuaiu. uuc apjjvai cu w ic- , gard this preference as extraordinary, and the meeting presently adjourned. -♦ THE NEWS OF NORTH HUDSON.

The Jefferson Club met at Hen nig’s Hall, West Hoboken, last even ing. The club is increasing in mem bership daily, and has already made its influence felt in North Hudson politics. The Town Councihnen are frequent visitors at the meetings. The choice informal entertainments given at the meetings have proved a great attraction. The Coroners' Jury in the ease of little Belle Weliuke, whom Charles Pfeiffer shot accidentally in West New York last Sunday afternoon, met in the Town Hall, West New York, last evening. Coroner Braekner was on the bench. The jury adjourned without linding a verdict.

EDGEIiLY, I,a., May 3,1889.—A merchant named Melviek, living at Blair, La., shot and killed his wife and two children yesterday afternoon.

The bodies of his wife and children were almost wholly inciner ated. __ His Foot Crashed By an Engine. James H.

It Won Fame and Fortune for the Good-Hearted MiUer'eSon. A Yarn for Children. The miller, who had lived beside the little forest stream all his life, had got very old and feeble, and he realized that lie could not live in this world much longer. So one day he called his two sons to him and said: “Boys, I am getting old and I am very little use for this world now. The pleas ures of this life are not the same to me as they used to bo. I don’t take much interest in them. All I want is to have a little room where I can rest my weary bones until the day comes for me to die. Now, what I want to do is this: I will give you the mill and everything belong ing to it, and you can work it for all it is worth and all the profit shall be yours. All I want you to promise me is to keep me for the rest of my days. Arc you satisfied with that?” John, the eldest, bowed his head as a sign of agreement, but Felix, the younger boy, said: “Father, the mill is hardly large enough for John and me, and I don’t think that wo could make much of a fortune for both of us, so I am going to make John a proposition. I am going away to seek my fortune in some other country, and if lie promises me faith fully to treat you well to the end of your days, I will give him my share of the mill. But if ho does not, and I hear of it when I return, then ho must give up to me the whole mill, and I will punish him into the bargain. What do you say to that, John?” “You need have no fear that I will not look after father; believe me, I will do my best, and if father should still live when you return, he will say so him self.” “All right,” replied Felix, “I believe you, my brother, and your assurance makes it all the lighter for mo to go away, because I know' that father is well taken care of.” The next morning saw Felix turn his back upon the old mill. He was a young fellow who was fond of adventure, and Ins heart had always delighted in brave deeds of warriors and heroes. It was his dearest wish to see something of the world himself, and on that account the quiet, uneventful existence in the old mill did not suit him very well. He wanted to go away, because his excitable nature could not rest in contentment with nothing else to cheer him except the clatter of the old rickety mill wheel. He had no clear idea as to what he would do when he got among strangers and in strange places, but lie had a heart full of hope for a bright future, and he was fully confident that something would turn up in his favor wherever he went. So it happened that he traveled through a great many lands and ha saw a good many strange and wonderful things that caused his eyes to open in wonder and astonishment. One day he was walking through a big forest, w-ben lie noticed a very ancient damo dragging herself along the road with an enormous load of wood on her back. Felix felt compassion for the old lady and ho immediately resolved to carry the load of wood for her. He quickly hurried after her, and when he overtook the dame ho said: “I guess that load i6 rather heavy for you, ma’am; wouldn't it be easier for you if I put it on my back and carry it?” The woman seemed to be well pleased with the young man’s kind offer, and sho at once dropped tlio wood to the ground. “Yes, young man,” she replied; “if you think you are strong enough, all right, pick it up; but, mind you, don’t promise what you cannot fulfill. I have a long way to go, and it is all up hill walking.” Felix only laughed at the old lady. “You don’t mean to say that I could not carry a load of wood that does not seem to lie too heavy for you?” “I don’t know,” snapped the woman. “Many a young man thought he could do a lot, but when he tried he did not succeed. But, there! don’t stand there talking. Pick up the wood and follow mo.” Felix, although somewhat taken aback at the woman's peremptory speech, picked up the load and walked behind her. He had not gone many yards, how ever, when he found out that lie had un dertaken a very heavy task. The load seemed to press down upon him so heav ily as if every piece of wood had been transformed into lead. Still he never murmured. Ho did not want to have the old woman think that he was not as strong as she. At last he saw an old log house before liirn under a number of oak trees. Arriving there, the old woman bade him to put down his load and go inside. She soon followed him. “Now, young man,” she said, “I will give you a reward for your kindness, and I suppose you think that you de serve it. Sit down at that table there and eat. Whoever eats from my table ho never will feel hungry again, and whoever drinks from my cups he will never bo thirsty again, no matter how long ho lives!” “Is that so?” asked Felix. “Well, lam glad of it, because I have often been as hungry as a hunter, and I would have been glad if I had only a piece of bread to chew at. But where did vou net these wonderful things to eat, old lady?” “♦ am Neris, the wonderful woman of the woods, and I am acquainted with all the good qualities of the trees, the shrubs, the grass and the brooks. I can concoct a soup that will change you into a roar ing lion, and I can bake a pancake from the roots of a forest plant that will chango your form into a rabbit. I can give you a drink of water that will cause you to cry tears which will drop from your eyo ttds as the most priceless diamonds, and I can make you up a drink that will eausc you to perspire the ugliest snakes ' from all parts o^your body. I am a wo man who rewivrds the kind hearted and good natured a millkmfoM for the small est trifle they do; but I am also a woman who is inexorable in punishing the wick ed, especially those who laugh at the aged and make fun of the poor and fee ble. I was pleased at your readiness to offer your service to me and carry that load of wood, and I mean to repay your kindness. Have you finished your meal and have you "drank your wine? All right, then; now let me give you some thing else. Take this ring that I have hero and wear it around your thumb. That ring has a wonderful power. It can undo every charm of witchcraft and | magic and it will change the spell of sor eery from any one you touch with it ■ Now, good-by, my young fellow; make 1 I j good use of the gift and it will make I your fortune." Felix, who liad been listening to the ; woman, like in a dream, mechanically ! fook the magic ring out of the woman’s ! hand. Then he put it on his thumb,and i bidding Neris good-by lie retraced his stops down the bill. After ho had walked for about two days, he began to 1 feel the wonderful effect of the dinner ' lie had in Neris’ log house. He did not | feel in the least hungry or thirsty, in fact ! he seemed to bo so strong and vigorous that tiredness and fatigue was something | he did not know any more.” ‘■The first town I strike now shall be I the place where I will try my luck in ail j earnest. Now that I can do without eat ! ing and drinking I ought to be able to i make lots of money.” Thus Felix encouraged himself while i lie continued his way. During the even 1 ing he arrived in a very large city, and ; no sooner had he got inside the gate than ! lie heard everybody talking about a very l extraordinary story. The facts were ! these: The king of the city had a confiden : tial servant, who was a wizard, and who ! had the secret power to. change any hu 1 man being into tiie shape of an animal. This wizard, so the story went, was in love with the king’s daughter, whom lie wanted to marry. The king, however, when he heard of the matter, got so mad i with ilia servant that he wanted to have j him killed. But before the enraged mon ; arch could accomplish this design the j wizard servant changed the king into a ! donkey, and in that shape it was said the lrinrt nhcillt Iho rnml But that was not all yet. The young princess, however, liked the servant even les9 than her father, and when he came and asked her to marry him she refused him point blank. This made the wizard very angry, and he told the young lady if ho did not get a more satisfactory and pleasing reply • from her he would also [ change her into an animal. But all his threats were of no avail, and the young lady could not be moved by the wizard to share her life with his. He promised her mountains of gold, ship loads of dresses and car loads of ! diamonds, but it helped him nothing. All this had thrown the city into a ! terrible excitement, but everybody was afraid to kill the servant who had caused all this trouble, because he might tun the whole town into a menagerie if he got mad at everybody. It was just at the period of events when Felix arrived on the scener. No sooner had ho heard the state of affairs when he resolved to try the quality of his ring. Ho went to his room in the | hotel where he was staying, and here he j put the ring round his thumb. No sooner had he done bo than behold! Nevis, the Wonderful Woman from the Woods, stood before him. “You have called me, and I am here to do your bidding. Don’t bo afraid to speak, for I will help you.” These were the words the woman addressed to Fe lix, and he at once told her of the calam ity which was terrorizing the people of j the town. j “Is that all, my friend? H’m, we will easily help you in this. Get up at 5 o’clock to-morrow morning and walk outside of the city gate until you get to the river. When you arrive at the bank of the stream walk 300 steps to the left, then 800 steps to the right and then again 300 steps to the left. When you get to that place you will find a wonderfully handsome horse. You take that horse and head it into town, right up to thecas tie. Everybody will admire the animal and quite a lot of people will follow you. When you get to the castle the wizard servant will be standing in the yard. He is a great lover of horses, and when he comes to look at the animal ask him to buy it. If he refuses, beg him to try and ride it once; he may hesitate for a few minutes, but be persistent. Then, when he is on the horse’s back, and he has lii3 feet in the stirrups, just touch the horse’s flank with your ring. No sooner will you have done so and the animal will gallop away with its rider, never to re turn again. “Of course when you have done that your task is easy. Find the king, and touching him with the ring, the spell of the wizard's witchcraft will be broken and he will regain his human shape.” Felix thanked the kind hearted miss, and he followed her instructions to the very letter. When he had accomplished everything by aid of the “wonderful ring,” the people in the city went almost crazy with delight. The king was espe cially glad because ho had not liked himself much in the shade of a donkey, and the princess cried tears of joy when she heard that she was saved from the yoke of becoming the wife of a hateful wizard servant. Felix was made a lord by the grateful king, and he rose from that position until he became himself the king’s son-in-law by marrying the beautiful princess. After some years he went home to see his father, and when he found him still alive and John a good honest miller, he took them both along to his own grand castle in the city.
