The Jersey Ciiï Nee AVERAGE DAILY CIRCULATION, Φ HIGH WATER MARK, 44,500 COPIES IN SIX DAYS. The Sunday Morning News HIGH WATER MARK, LARGEST CIRCULATION IN HUDSON COUNTY. This paper is Democratic in principles and is independent in its views on all local quest ίο rix. We expect to see spring novelties advertised next week if this weather keeps on. Now that the Merry Christmas is past, let us all brace up for the happy New Year. The managers of our only competi tor must have been somewhat disgust ed when, after reading in its columns that everything was quiet at the Pol ish Catholic Church, they read in The Jersey City News the story of the arrest of the priest and one of the par ishioners on cross charges of slander. Perhaps our only competitor may run ^ across the story in time for todays fssue. \ Ballot Reform. The Paterson Call says:— Several correspondents having asked the New York Heirald to explain how a voter who cannot read or write can vote nnder the Australian or secret ballot system, that paper replies:—"The provision of the Massachusetts law is this:—A voter who declares to the presiding election offi cer that he cannot read, or that by blindness or other physical disability he is unable to mark upon his ballot, shall upon request re ceive the assistance of one or two of the election officers in the marking thereof, and such officer or officers shall certify on the outside thereof that it was so marked with his or their assist ance and shall thereafter give no information regarding the same. That makes it perfectly easy for an illiterate voter to cast a secret ballot. The secret is known to the election officer, but he is forbidden to disclose it." The blind fatuitv of this passes all belief. It proves that when a man gets a crotchet into his head, no absurdity of unreason will eradicate it. Here are a lot of men who claim that the ballot is impure because it is not secret, that the llrst step towards political reform is absolute secresy for the voter, and how do they t*o about securing it? They dictate that the voter—that is to say, the ■weakest voter, the one who wants the protection of secresy most—shall take "one or two" other persons, presuma bly professional politicians, into his confidence, and not only expose his own desires and opinions to them, but haviug <lone so, then vote as they may direct. jLiie wiiu, iiimnuus ausuruity <ji Liie proposition makes every sensible man laugh. In what particular will the voter be better off under the new than under the old system. In New York State, where all ballots must look alike, the voter has some chance to get the best of his boss or of a bribe-giver by a little sleight of hand. But there is no escape under the State ballot system. The illiterate voter must do just what the election officer tells him and that is the end of it. What he will be told to do, of course depends on the honesty of the election officer and the amount of crooked work he is willing to do for his party. But the "Australian" system pure and simple is full of impossibilities in its application to this country. Take the case of the Presidential electors. How inajlji intelligent, citizéhs get the lull 'J 1st iiito their heads? How many would be able to pick out the Republicans, for in stance, from the list? It might, not be impossible in this State where there are only hiiie names to memorize, but how about New Yyrk, where there are thirty-six. - Λ Nobody can deny that we need com plete, radical, sweeping reform in our electorial methods, but at least let us not substitute a worse evil for the one we are sweeping away. Two days ago our only competitor printed an item under the head, "How He Measures,which would uavu been interesting only our only com petitor left out the point of the joke, in its own simple way. It purported to describe the way an English tailor went about getting up a suit of clothes, and his supercilious contempt for Ameri cans. The joke was that the clothes did not fit and there is nothing else in the item, but our only competitor left that out. But there is a still better joke about it. Our only competitor credited the item to the Pittsburg Bulletin. The truth is the original article appeared three months ago, -with illustrations, in The Sunday Morning Nkws. But our only competitor's memory is poor. We rejoice to know that our romantic friend, General E. Burd Grubb, has recovered from his political bruises. Crusaders1 Castle, No. 14, Knights of the Golden Eagle, debated the other night the question, "Which is Worthy the Greater Admiration, the Works of Art or the Works of Nature?" General E. Bard Grubb stood up for Natnre, and his side won the de bate. Of course. Isn't a game chicken worthier of admiration than a chromo of a game chicken J-New York Sun. This is not fair. The General is a gentleman of artistic taste, and doubt less possesses that love of nature which is the truest test of refinement of soul. We have never said and never will say that the General is aught else than an amiable, cultured, pleasant and socially popular man. He is no states man and no politician, and it was a pity he came out of the sphere which he adorns to meet with disappoint ment and discouragement in one for which he is unfit by nature and train ing. NEW PUBLICATIONS. Magazine of American History. The Magazine of American History opens the new year and its twenty third volume with a bright and read able January number. This periodi cal seems to be on the flood tide of the newly awakened popular interest in everything that relates to the heroic past. An admirable portrait of Wil liam Cullen Bryant forms the frontis piece, and an animated and welcome paper by the clever editor treats of his place in American history. "A Rare Picture of Early New York" painted on the panel of an old Dutch war vessel, a view never before published, is a contribution both in text and illustration from the famous collector Dr. Thomas Addis Emmet. "Uncle Tom's Cabin and Mrs. Stowe," an extract from the new work of Mrs. McCray, is vastly enter taining, and this is also illustrated; then we have from J, 0. Dykman a sketch of "St. Anthony's Face" on the Hudson, with a quaint picture of that wonderful piece of natural sculp Of special interest for every thought ful reader is the ably-written study by Gerry W. Hazleton, of Milwaukee, entitled "Federal and Anti-Federal;'' next following James W. Gerard shows with dramatic force, in the longest paper of the number, "The Impress of Nationalities upon the City of New York." In its several depart ments and in all its varied features the number for January, 1890, is fully up to the standard of this noble and attractive magazine. PERSONAL AND NOTABLE. General William J. Se well has gone to Old Point Comfort, Va., to visit the Soldiers' Home. The sub-committee to raise money for adver tising Atlantic City has made a report, which is favorable to the scheme and encournging Samuel Garwood, superintendent of the Reading Railroad, and Mayor Hoffman, are members of the committee. Jacob Dubeson, of May's Landing, one of the oldest and most successful hunters of that sec tioD, had killed, up to Sunday last, the close of the open season for game, 116 rabbits, 7 pheas ants, 13 quail, 14 foxes, 18 coons, 1 mink, 9 skunks and 6 opossums. The students of Princeton College have pre sented each of the members of their champion football team, as well as the manager, treasurer and trainer, with handsome gold trophies. The trophies are miniature footballs, and contain the names of the team on them. —The recent appointment of A. B. Nafew as postmaster at Eatontown is causing dissatisfac. tion among some of the Republicans, who claim that he is not a thorough Republican. Several residents have secured boxes in the Red Bank post-offtce, where they will get their mail. —Creditors have swooped down upon ex-Sheriff James D. Brinkerhoff, who has carried on a gro cery business at Rutherford for years. Mr. Brinkerhoff carried on a business of $100,000 a year. His father and grandfather were sheriffs before him, and the family is one of the best Auwvtu in uuituoiu «OVI Ο oiaoj. The new Battan high school at Elizabeth was opened Tuesday night for public inspection. It cost originally $240,000, while the woodwork of the interior, oak and black walnut, cost $40,000. Beautiful plate glass mirrors adorn the walls. A life size portrait of Joseph Battin, who pre sented the building to the city, hangs in one of the rooms. John Hoey, president of the Adams Express Company, begun yesterday the erection of four large aquariums at Hollywood Park, Long Branch. Judge William S. Banta. of Bergen county, has resigned as a manager of the Morris Plains Asylum owing to inability to attend to the duties. Governor Green has appointed Dr. John A. Wells of Englewood, to fill the va cancy. Counsel representing William L. Wright have filed a bill in equity in Trenton in an important litigation over inheritance. Young Wright is a son of George M. Wright, who was State Treas urer of New Jersey, and who died in January, 1885, leaving possessions valued at about $150,· I 000. It was said that t€e son sold his interest in the estate for $250 to the administrators and other members of the family, thereby throwing away his right to an inheritance of about $25.000 or $30,000. The proceedings are to annul the contract, upon the ground that it was made un der misrepresentations. ^.

Lieutenant Col onel Lee and Major B. P. Holmes are the candi dates. The odds seem to be in favor of Major Holmes. Colonel Ropes, however, has not yet resigned, but it is expected that he will, as his interests are now In Texas. The change of col onels will give the regiment the lowest position of honor in brigade or division line, and will throw its location in the center of the camp next summer instead of on the extreme right, and will take away some of the past glory of the regiment in many ways.

RAILROAD ΝOTES. The annual meeting of the stockholders of the Mount Holly, Lumberton and Med ford Railroad was held at the Arcade Hotel on Saturday. The following direc tors were elected:—Henry I. B»ddj Clif ford Stanley Sims, I. W, Stokes, Henry C. Risdon, Daniel Sutter, Edward Wills. Η. I. Budd was elected president, C. S. Sims, vice president; I. W. Stokes, secre tary and treasurer. John R. Howell was chairman of the stockholders' meeting. The number of shares voted was 1,097. After the meeting dinner was served to the stockholders and guests. The Pennsylvania Railroad has recently issued an order to the effect that here after no employe of that company will be allowed tp mail a letter on the train. This is done to discourage a growing cus tom and one that is not allowable by the post office authorities. So mauy people take mail matter to the depot and entrust it to any employe who will' be kind enough to handle it. Hence it is thought by not allowing employes to be mail carriers the practice wiil be abolished. The Erie Railroad Company has ar ranged to make a new crossing at Rutherford, where Sheriff Demarest was killed, and place gates at that dangerous point. The Grand Jury made a present ment against the company last week. A score of years ago Hackensack, the county seat of Bergen county, and only thirteen miles .from Jersey City, had no means of communication with New York other than those furnished by the lum bering stage coach and private vehicles. Residents of the county, could only reach the county seat by private vehicles, and Hackensack was an almost isolated village. Al>out 1870, the Hackensack and New York Railroad, was completed, and though it was only a " one horse road," it was a wonderful accommodation, and its effects we;re at once marked. A few years later, the N. J. and N. Y. R. R. an exten sion of the Hackensack R. K. through Bergen, and Rockland Co. Ν. Y. to Garnerville, a suburb of Haverstraw, was completed, and communication with New York, and a large section of country, was thus established. Still later, the track of the D. I.. and W. R. R. passed through the village, and located a depot in its very centre. The changes wrought by these improve ments have been in the highest degree benellcial. not only to Hackensack but also to the sections through which the roads run. Little villages have sprung into life; property has been greatly en hanced and hundreds of mechanics and ousiness men have been enabled to build homes for themselves and families within a reasonable distance of the city and the frequent trains on both roads enable them to travel to and from their places of business within a reasonable space of time. Hackensack has grown rapidly, and property has advanced in price far beyond the most sanguine expectations of those who projected the iirst road and who builded better than fhov tr iiaw " FORKS. In te venting Facts About Their Early His tory iu Europe. It seems clear enough, in the light of negative evidence, tha the few forks included in the silveaware of the middle ages were not used as forks are used today. Since kitchen forks served as spits and for holding roasts, it is probable that the high born lords and ladies of those times, who only appear to have possessed these instru ments, used their silver forks for toast ing their bread at the breakfast room fire. There is some direct evi dence that they were employed to hold substances particularly disagree able or inconvenient to handle, as toasted cheese, which would leave an unpleasant smell; or sticky sugared dainties, or soft fruits, the juice of which would stain the fingers. Only one incident is related of the use of the fork in the Nineteenth cen tury fashion, This was by a noble lady of Byzantium who had married a doge of Venice and continued iji that city to eat after her own ctlstôin. cutting lie»·meat very finely tip arid conveying itei<> lier mouth with a tVfo pronged fork. The act was regarded in Venice, according to Pietrus Rami anus, as a sign of çxqessÎve luxury-anil/ extreme effeminacy. It suggests a probability that the fashion of eating with forks originated at the imperial court of Byzantium and thence ex tended to the west. Some hundreds years had still to pass before it could 'be domiciliated in Europe, for this doge's Byzantine wife lived in the Eleventh century, while the fashion of eating with forks did not become general till the Seventeenth century. THE EMPRESS EUGENIE. Interesting Reminiscences by a Ci devant Lady in Waiting. After her betrothal to the prince regent the Countess de Hontijo quitted France, says the book about tiie Empress. Eugenie recently pub lished by one of lier ladies. She wore a plain gold ring on her linger and a piu mounted with brilliants and emer alds.- She had won it in a lottery organized by the Emperor at Com· piegne, and ever afterward, until the death of the Emperor, she used to wear it every evening along with her other jewels, whatever her attire might be. It will be interesting just to say here that a few years after the Emperor's death the Empress put off some of her mourning lest she shoud sadden her son's youth. However, she wore no colored jewelry, but hav ing looked upon this first present of the Emperor as a pledge of their future happiness, a superstitious illusion in regard to it became firmly fixed in her mind. On the departure of the Prince Imperial for Zululand the Empress wore the "trefoil of emeralds" until June 19. But after the death of her son she lost all faith in human hope, and on one occasion, when the Duchess de Mouchy was paying the Empress a visit, the latter gave her this jewel. "I have regarded it for a long time as a fortunate talisman," said she. "It is my dearest relic. 1 do not wish it to be cast aside. Look upon it every evening as a souvenir of us, and may it be to you a token of hapniness and of loving friendship." i\o provision nau Deen maae in tnis splendid palace of the Tuileries, which was so vast and so magnificent, to give it the appearance of a home. When Louis XVI. and Marie Antoin ette had occupied it in 1780 a few hasty provisions of this kind had been made, but they had always remained imperfect. With the exception of the large rooms all the interior communication were in darkness, and it was neces sary, summer and winter alike, to have lighted lamps on the small stair cases in the corridors. As soon as spring came tiie heat and want of ventilation became very painful, and, notwithstanding the beautiful display of the chestnut trees in the garden, we all hailed with joy the time for our departure to St. Cloud or Fontaine bleau. On one occasion the Empress re ceived from a young girl two turtle doves in a cage, and she was the more willing to accept this singular present because of the touching simplicity with which it was offered. Six months after a letter was sent to the Empress asking that the writer might be placed in her service. It was to the follow ing effect:—"It is I, madame, who made you a present of the turtle doves and which you have accepted. As you love the birds you may require a guardian for them. I would take great care of them." The Empress always quitted the grand balls at the Tuileries rather tired, and very often did not even take time to call her maids. Before enter ing her cabinet she would remove her crown and jewels, the weight of which fatigued her, and put them pell-mell into my dress, which I held out in front of me for the purpose. I was always afraid less 1 should lose some of the precious stones by conveying them in this manner, for many of them l'oniOfiontoil η fnitnno The Empress ordered some of the crown diamonds to be mounted for her ordinary wear. Many of the had a history attached to them. Among others a yellow diamond, big as a small nut, mounted in a comb with other whiter stones, was swallowed by an insurgent in 1848, during the pil lage of the Tuileries. The cut facets of the diamond produced internal dis orders, aud the unfortunate man died in great pain, confessing his larceny. At the post mortem examination the diamond was found. It was the largest of the crown diamonds, and when the Empress became acquainted with this fact later it caused her to remove it. How to cai·© for Furs. How did you manage to get the moth in your beaver ? .Nothing can be done with it at home. You must send it at once to a good furrier to be dressed. l)o you put lavender in your wardrobe aud drawers? It sometimes creates moths or brings it. I do not know which. We had to give it up on that account. Brown paper is the thing to put away furs and flannels in, adding plenty of powdered bitter apple, camphor and pepper. One sneezes frightfully when the curtains, table-covers aud garments are taken out of their seclusion and well shaken, but those very sneezes prove that in sects could not bear the neighborhood. Mrs. Fourstars has a long-handled cane arrangement, rather like a tennis bat in shape, and with this she thoroughly beats her furs and woollen things every now and then. She is one of the careful people whose furni ture and clothes always look fresh and new. She showed me a plush coat the other day which she .had for three years. It hung in her delightful cedar-wood wardrobe on three nails by three loops sewn at equal dis tances within the collar, this being being: creased by the strain on the usual single loop. The sleeves were stuffed with tissue paper, and the body was folded round a roll of brown paper. An old sheet enveloped the whole, the outline of the garment making us think of one of Bluebeard's wives with her head cut off. When the coat was unfolded, to the accom paniment of any number of sneezes, it looked as if it were new out of the shop. You will kindly accept all these re marks as a little lecture upon your carelessness. Send the furs, I repeat, to a good furriar.—London Truth. Porous Waterproof. A porous waterproof cloth is the best for outer garments during wet weather for those whose duties or la boi· cause them to perspire freely. The best>yay for preparing sueh cloth is by tlia process adopted for the tunics of the French soldiers during the (ïrimean war. It is as follows:—Take two and a half pounds of alum and dissolve in tçn gallons of boiling wafer; then, in a separate vessel, dis solve the same quantity of sugar of lead in ten gallons of water and mix the two solutions. The cloth is now well handled in this liquid until every part of it is penetrated; then it is squeezed and dried in the air or warm apartment, then washed in cold water and dried again, when it is lit for use. If necessary the cloth may be dipped in the liquid and driVl twice before being washed. The liquor appears curdled when the alum and lead solu tions are mixed together. This is the result of double decom position, the sulphate of lend, which is an insoluble salt, being formed. The sulphate of lead is taken up in the pores of the cloth, and it is unaf fected by rains or moisture, and vet ι it does not render the cloth airtight, Such cloth is also partly unimiiam able. A solution of alum itself will render cloth, prepared as described, partially waterproof, but it is not so good as the sulphate of lead. Such ; cloth—cotton or woolen—sheds rain like the feathers on the back of a 1 duck. As to cost, alum is three cents ! per pound and sugar of lead about twenty cents per pound, and doubt less each could be had for less in quantities. Experience will tell the ι amount of liquor necessary for, say, ! a score of capes: but, anyway, the pro ' ces-· will be found sufficiently inexpen sive and effectual. It Was Mean. Although there is no more true love, there are still lovers1 quarrels, and sad partings, and much irritation, and lying awake and misery. And when these quarrels come the man is just as mean as the woman. They had quar reled, and it was final. She demanded all her presents back, anil her letters and her photographs. He sent thein. Then she wrote him a note, saying that he had kept one little tender present she had made him in the days when she thought he was good and true and a gentleman, with the "gentleman" underscored several times very heavily. It was a lock of hair, and "she could not naturally per mit him to keep that. He sent it back with a brief note: "It doesn't make any difference whether I keep it or not. Nobody would know it was yours. You forget you were a dyed blonde when I got it." "It was so mean," she said, "be cause my hair had only grown a few shades darker lately."—Sa ?» Francisco Chronicle.· To Mothers. For upwards of flfty years "Has.
