SAVAGES OE THE
STORM.
While the Hill Suffered Con
. -siderably the . Down
town Section Had
the Worst of It.
A HOUSE ON ITS HEAD
Thrilling Experience of ‘Mrs.
Kennedy and Mrs. Ryan
—The City Flooded,
The wind and rainstorm that struck
this city yesterday didn’t do any really
great damage, but it scared some people,
who were afraid they might be in the
wake of a tornado like that which de
vastated Van Yorst Park. All of these
were agreeably disappointed. No one
1 was hurt, despite the fact that houses
were unuroofed, and in one case a house
i buiit upon four spiles with in the limits
| , of the city was blown down, but the
two women occupants escaped injury.
The house which they occupied was torn
from its ‘’anchorage,” and upset in a
vacant lot ten feet away. The two
women, though buffeted about, escaped
serious injury and crawled through. a
window of the upturned house. The
house was known as No. 52 Terrace
avenue. The house was occupied by
Mrs. Frank Kennedy and Mrs. Ryan,
and when the house was lifted from its
foundation they had a really thrilling
experience.
The full force of the storm, wind and
rain, however, was felt downtown. The
\ Hill police precincts are somewhat
I meagre as to results of the storm. The
policeman is human, and when there is
danger frcpi the elements he is expected1
to take care of himself if he is to be
wanted ii^ cases of emergency. The full
details of the storm’s ravages, it is fair
' jt_Jto. presume, have not yet been reported.
The condition of affairs at lower Pa
_ Vonia avenue can be imagined. A north
east wind blew in a tide that usually
floods the ferry house. Women and chil
dren were taken from the ferry house
to trolley cars in the arms of stout men
In rubber boots. That has been done

In various portions of the city houses
were unroofed. Such was the fate of
three two-story buildings, Nos. 346, 348
and 352 Princeton avenue; also of Nos.
36 and 39 Winfield avenue. The Prince
ton avenue houses unroofed belonged to
James Clark, whose residence is un
known. The roof of No. 1046 Garfield

An American Sugar Refinery truck
was stalled near the foot of the Newark
avenue hill. The flood of rain water had
eaten away the topping of a recently
constructed sewer. The weight of the
truck caused the paving to sink in and
a hole 10x20 feet was made in the road
way, and through which sewage from
the Hill pourned down, creating a lake
under the Pennsylvania Railroad freight
trestle^jhat stopped both pedestrian and
trolley car traflie.
The situation at the dilapidated City
Hospital buildings was pathetic. It is
known that the various pavilions have
been in a precarious condition for years
during heavy rain and snow storms. The
improvement of such a condition was Dr.
McGift’s great fight. Yesterday it was
necessary to shift the cots of many pa
tients and to cover the cots with rubber
blankets.
St. Francis Hospital was also affected
by the storm. All through the Horseshoe
it created damage. The roofs of the
homes of Col. Sam Dickinson, Undertak
er Thomas F. Carey, Formelr Street and
Water Commisisoner Edward F. Dugan,,
Edward Filurtis and Charles Gardner
were torn from their fastenings and in
some1 instances landed into the street.
One big tree was uprooted in Hamilton
Park. The grand stand of the Oakley
Base Ball club, with a capacity for seat

Deceptions of Wild Birds.
Falcons, hawks—the largest species—
can compress their feathers and look
very slim if they think It necessary to
do so. As to the owls, they can huifip
up Into any position they think most
suitable. It Is useless to look for these
self preserving traits in any of the
family kept in zoological collections,
for the birds are so accustomed to tiee
large numbers of people passing and
repassing or standing In' front of them
that they treat 'the whole matter with
perfect Indifference. TU£y know that
at a certain time their'food will be
brought them and that they are other
wise perfectly safe. Then the raptores
in a wild state have a bloom on their
plumage like the bloom on a bunch of
grapes, which is not often seen when In
captivity.—Cornhill Magazine,
Disenchanted.
"Until I met you, Matilda,” he mur
mured In a voice hnsky With emotion,
“I believed that all women were de
ceitful, but when I look into your clear,
beautiful eyes I behold there the very
soul of candor and loyalty.”
“George,” she exclaimed with enthu
siasm, “this Is the happiest moment I
have known since papa took me to the
London oculist!”
“London oculist!”
“Yes, deaf; you never would have
known that my left eye is a glass one.”
Then the moon Went under a cloud,

(Special to “The Jersey City News.")
ATLANTIC CITY, Sept. 17, 1903.—
Owing to the great, storm which visited1
this place today, the grand council of the
Independent Order of Red Men held no
sessions up to a late hour yesterday after
noon, as orders were issued by the man
agement of Young’s Pier to admit no one.
This step was taken to avoid any danger.
Very few of the representatives were able
to get on the pier. >
Tuesday afternoon the% committee on
ceremonies made a report recommending
that no changes be made in the ritual. A
resolution was adopted directing each
State council to be incorporated. It was
voted not to take any steps to organize
an insurance branch of the order. Penn
sylvania entered a resolution to the effect
that the great council of the order be the
sole owner of the grave marker selected
to mark the graves of deceased] members.
This was defeated.
Reports of committees were considered
at tli session Tuesday afternoon. The
committee of Judiciary reccomended that
-all the decisions of great ineohone,
Thomas G. Harrison, be approved. The
committee also reported1 a rule that elec
tions in tribes must be held strictly in ac
cordance with the law. The entire re
port was adopted.
The appeal committee recommended
that the appeal from Rahway Tribe, of
this state, be dismisse. The report was
adopted. The great councils of Maryland
and Pennsylvania were sustained in two
appeal cases.
The matter of permitting each State
great councils of the degree of Pocahon
tas selecting a State totem was argued,
and then referred to the committee on
ceremonies for a report.
Three Misouri cities are in the race for
a reporf.
Three Misosuri Cities are in the race
for the place of meeting next year—St.
nhsas Ctfy• and St. Joseph, The
State delegation is composed pf a number
of good-natured westerners, and as they
cannot come to any understanding, all
three cities will continue in the race.
A proposition to make the admission
fee $5 throughout the country is said to
be a matter before each session- of the
body, but each time it is voted down.
According to present indications it will
meet the same fate this year. As the
present law reads each State regulates
tlis fee for itself.
The local committee, acting with the
special committee appointed by the great
of this State, is earying out an elaborate
programme of entertainment. Trolley
rfiles, euchres and smokers are the rule.

later and improved instrument. )
The Metrostyle Pianola not only makes it possible for anyone to correctly play
the piano; but also enables even the most unskilled to interpret a composition exactly
at a musician would. Additional importance has been attached to it from the fact that mapy
of the best known living musicians have indicated their interpretations on the music prepared
for the Metrostyle Pianola. \
The Pianolas which have been exchanged for the Metrostyle Pianola have all been
carefuly examined and put into thorough order, and are now offered for sale at a greatly re
duced price.
They are ip all respects practically the same as those sold to-day without the Metrostyle,
and carryithe same guarantee as new instruments.
With the Pianolas will be included a number of Aeolians and Orchestrellet, which have
been exchanged for higher priced instruments. These will be sold at a material reduction fhxa
the usual prices, and are also guaranteed. *
