About thirty schoolmates gathered at the home of Miss Helen E. Bowen, and ' from there proceeded in a body to the home of Miss Ada, where a cheering welcome was given to the new year of her life. Many amusing games were played, among them their fortunes were told, so that each one found out what they would be doing in lf>3().

Moore, the "millionaire barber,” whose spectacular exploits have made him famous, was released from the Atlantic City prison Thursday an ‘angel’ having been found who went his bail in the sum of $750, pending a hearing to morrow. At that time Moore will be called to answer to the charge of having appropriated to his own uses, a fur lined coat belonging to William Magill. No warrant against Moore charging larceny of the diamonds, which he is al leged to have procured from a prominent matron and pawned in Philadelphia, has been issued, the magistrates disclaiming having a complaint of this character against Moore lodged with them. What disposition, if any. of this portion of the case, which the police are supposed to have built up against Moore, will be made, it is hard to determine, rumors current to the effect that the matron who figures as the loser of the gems will not prosecute having gained much credence in semi-official circles. NEW COMPANY ORGANIZED. Mr. G. Otis Barnes. No. 23 S. Frank lin avenue, has formed and headed wa company to t*nter into the field of Buil ders and General Contractors, with offi ces and shop at Nos. 7 and 9 Haddon avepue. Atlantic City, aird known as the “G. Otis Barnes Company.” Mr. Barnes until recently has been General Superin tendent with Alfted Moore, one of the largest and oldest builders of Atlantic City, and l,ias made many friends both in Atlantic City and Pleasantville. Af filiated with the company are some of the most skilled mechanics to be found in this section of the country, such as Mr. John Neil, former designer and fore man with the Hale & Kilborn Co., of Philadelphia; Mr. P. O’Malley, superin tendent with the Mathison Co., engineers and contractors, of Pittsburgh; Mr. -las. Woodhouse. until recently foreman with D. Knauer Co., of Atlantic City, and Mr. Frank Psulhamus. past constructive superintendent of the Steeplechase pier. State Road Commissioner Here. State Hoad Commissioner Stevens spent less than twenty minutes inspect ing Shore Road paving, charged to be contrary to specifications, on Friday. He went over a mile of the road with County Engineer Rightmire and Chief Engineer Meeker, but did not pass decis ion. The road was covered with slush and.in an unsatisfactory condition for inspection, but the Commissioner is re ported to have said that he found noth ing radically wrong with the work. Th'e Commissioner came into Atlantic Coun ty not so much to go over the Shore Road as to inspect the route for the pro posed Mays Landing-Tuekahoe Road. It was practically decided to follow the old route in building the new road—that is. follow, as nearly as possible, the pres ent road. LOCAL W. C. T. U. NOTES.

The handsome Scotch Collie “Prince” belonging to W. H. Winder died Wednes day morning. "Prince” was 13 months old, and was an exceedingly intelligent and valuable animal, having come from the Vanderbilt kennels. It is believed that he had .been poisoned, and although more attention could not have been giv en a child, medical aid was unable to save him. Residents should be very careful how they allow poisonous mat ter to lie around, and thus prevent a recurrence of this death of a highly prized dog. When buying a cough medicine for children bear in mind that Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy is most effectual for colds, croup and whooping cough and that it contains no harmful drug.
