LARGEST CIRCULATION IX HUDSON COUNTY. This paper is Democratic In principles and is independent in it» views on all local questions. The Electric Light Panic. There are two sides to the electric ■wire question, though, under the in fluence of a momentary panic, people seem to see only one. The public safety is a very precious tiling, but the public convenience also has its im portance, and in the present age it is not apt to be made secondary to the matter of safety, when at worst only a few are endangered. The Sunday Morning News HIGH WATER MARK, J the danger should be reduced to a minitfaum, that the best way to do this is to put them under ground, and that therefore»! liey should be put un der ground as speedily as possible are propositions that follow one upon the other with irresistible logic. But, that all electric service should be cut off— as has been the case at intervals—or thai its progress should be suspended, as is proposed in this city, is asking a little too much. I [Consider the number of railroad employees who are killed daily in the line of duty, consider the number of the general public who meet their deaths in railway accidents. Would anyone think of stopping all the rail ways in the country until they could be operated with "safety?" And yet it is not too much to say that there are more people killed in one day by rail roads than by all the electric wires in the world in a year. Happily we have had nobody killed by electricity in this city as yet; but the Pennsylvania Railway maims and slaughters many persons annually. Does any one pro pose to stop the road until its tracks can be raised? It is the unrelenting law of civiliza tion that every new advantage is pro cured and maintained at the expense of human iit'e. It is simply irrational to try to eliminate this element from one phase of our progress. Workhouse Children. The suggestions made through the columns of Thk Sunday Morning Kkws by the experienced ex-wardens of the almshouse that the little chil dren should be separated from the adult paupers is one that cannot be acted upon too speedily. A system that brings budding childhood of the impressionable age when every influ ence that surrounds them goes into their growth and development with the lazy, shiftless, degraded men and women, who make up the County's pauper community, can not be to severely condemned. That seventy-five per cent ot the little ones brought up HI PlUvIl nil £llilIlUO|JiJCJ C, lUill UUl, as Warden Osborne estimates, to b< useful if not valuable membert of ^society, is scarcely credible, No one can say how inuel more valuable citizens they might be come if they had not these lazy am degraded exemplars continually be fore their eyes. They are apt to fal into a state of easy contentment with the dronish society they live in. Anc so budding ambition is withered and the career of the youth is at an end For the children's sake the separutioc should be made. The county would get buck the cost probably in the end, by the decreas< in its pauper population. Wardei Osborne, all the wardens say, in fact that some who have spent their child hood in the almshouse, go hack t( spend their mature years there. II would be public economy to redue< the number to the minimum. AMUSEMENTS. Miss Marie Hubert Frobmao and a se lect company played a double bill las evening at the Academy οί Music.

The occasional sight of a big, stout merchant tripping fastastic steps with his ten-year-old bud, whose dancing mas ter had taught her to waltz all around her big papa, was no less enjoyed than that of the stately mien and gracerul mo tion of his pretty grown daughter whirl ing amid the throng in the arms of some florid, handsome taced young grocery manager. Mayor Cleveland, County Clerk Dennis McLanghlin, Alderman Hauck and Police Captain McKaig were observed among the spectators. Thomas T.

Docs This Give the True Origin of the Phrase "Turn Yum?"—Queer Super, utitions about Birds—A Combination Watch and Purse. The wedding cercraonies usually last about a week, ancl the maiden comes to the house of her husband to be married. She is supposed to bring a trousseau with j her, and this consists of a good lot of ! clothes and underclothes, of linen and j bedding, o£ copper kitchen utensils, and of the Turkish furniture, for a couple of I rooms. Τ He furniture of a Turkish house j is not very elaborate. The family usually ; sleeps upon the floor, and α set of bedding cousists of two mattresses, two quilts and three cotton bolsters. The family eat largely upon trays, and the Turks believe that limtèrs η re a aood deal cleaner than knives and forks. Weddings are very expense. Large amounts of money are given away to beg gars, and wedding gowns cost three hun dred dollars and upwards. The feasting goes on at the houses of both bridegroom and bride, and the wedding feast usually begins on Monday. On Tuesday the bride is taken to the bath, and the bridegroom pays the expenses of this operation. On ■Wednesday the bridegroom's lady friends go to the house of the bride, where they have a concert and feast. At this time the hands of the bride are stained with lieuua. and they begin to deck her out for rhA Wflrtriincr Ou Thursday the bride is taken to the groom's house iu a great procession. She is met by the groom, and the two eat candy together atter the manner of the exchange of gum or wax of girls in the primary schools. The idea is that noth ing but sweetness is hereafter to pass from the lips of oue to the other. The bridegroom has not seen the bride until this time. At the time of the betrothal the mother of the groom takes a present of candy to the bride. The blushing maiden bites one of tho choicest bits in two, eats half of it, and sends the other half back to her prospective husband. He is supposed to receive it with joy as a iove Qffering, aud to eat it, smacking his lips, and saying, "Yum, yum." Weddings usually take place in the afternoon. The bridegroom says a prayer in the presence of the bride, and he kneels on her bridal veil as he does so. The groom has to get the bride to speak before supper will be served, and it is a matter of pride with her to keep silent as long as possible.—F. O. Carpenter, in National Tribune. Superstitions About Birds. There is a widely spread belief among schoolboys in many parts of the country that it is unlucky to kill a robin, and it is generally supposed that a broken limb would be the probable punishment for so doing. Even the nest of the bird is com paratively safe, though why it should be thus favored is not quite clear, unless, as has been suggested by some writers, it owes it popularity to the story of the "The Babes in the Wood," which ballad, perhaps, may also have given rise to the popular notion that the robin will cover with leaves or moss any dead person if may chance to find them. There certainly, however, seems to be no substantial reason why he should be more favored than the other members of the feathered tribe, ior after all, he is a very pugnacious aud impudent little fel low, but, perhaps, these are the qualities which have brought him into notice and made him popular. We are informed in lue oiu rnyme mat The robiu and tho wren Are Uod's cock and heu ; nevertheless, the smaller bird does not enjoy the public protection which Is af forded to the redbreast, and at one time it was considered the proper thing to hunt the wren on St. Stephen's Day. When one was caught several curious and Interesting ceremonies were gone through. The bird was generally carried triumphantly round the town on a pole, and in some cases was afterward buried In the churchyard. In the Isle of Man a feather taken from a wren killed on one of these occasions was considered a most efficacious protection against shipwreck for a period of twelve months, and form erly ManxJBshermen would seldom think of putting to sea without one. Except in a few localities, the practice of wren hunting has now, no doubt, fallen into disuse, aud at the present day it is kept up as a rule only by boys, who retain the custom for their own amusement.—Cham bers Journal. Bal&Ing Canaries. I read the letter from N. A. S., in which she asks for information in regard to raising canaries. I have raised about forty young birds this year, and do not consider it so very difficult, though, like a great many other things, It requires constant care. The two great points are cleanliness and plenty of good nourishing food and a variety. Birds are like people in that they require change in their food, aud yet some people will give their birds seed and water ouly, until the poor little prisoners actually die of starvation. 1 give mine good light bread soaked in milk, ripe apples, hard boiled eggs, cold potatoes, and almost everything that I ent myself, with the exception of salty and greasy food, and I hardly ever give them anything s Λ-eet, unless it be sweet apples. I think it is indispensable for birds. I never feed the mixed feed kept in stores to my birds. My birds are healthy, hearty and nappy, and I hardly ever have one die.—M. H. O. in ,Spring field Homestead. Watch and Purse Combined. It is a lamentable tact that but one women Ln ten can reach her pocket to put her purse in it Sometimes it is de posited in the seat of the car: sometimes it is left on the counter of a shop; again, it is so carefully put away at home that several weeks are devoted to its search, and it is at last discovered in one of Charley's coats that he has put away to go to the cleaner's. Where do you keep your watch? Hang ing at the side, forgotten at home, or tucked in some mysterious way in tjie bosom of your frock just so you can't get at it without unbuttoning the bodice, caus ing a biush to come upon the face of the messencer boy? Be wise in your genera tion aud make a syndicate, a combine, to look at, and the little watch peeping out from the corner of your purse is a con stant reminder to you that time is money. Von will clutch your purse with greater vigor tfhen you know it con! ai us your lime framed in small diamonds in ii; then, too, yon will not be likely to let it go, as you will want every woman who hns not not the combination to see how lucky you nre.—Mew York Ml re.

A mother, writing to the Detroit Neive says:—"A clothes basket makes one of thi nicest possible cribs for a baby. All raj children were raised in a clothes baske ι and α hammock, with never a cradle υ ; crib. It was a large sized one (the baske I mean), with handles at the euas, i'o the first baby it was covered with blue silesia and dotted «wis». But when the I other babies came an old cretonne for the j inside and out did very well. The sides were padded with a piece of old bed quilt, and a little mattress made for the bottom. When baby fell asleep the basket was easily carried into a quiet room, which could be made dark." The idea is nor a bad one. Such a bas ket woitld do very nicely for the babies who are just learning to sit alone. The j padding would save the little heads from many a hard bump, and also keep the I littJe ones from feeling the drafts which I rush along the floor. i Tiles, Itching.
