J., April 13, 1901. The number of roads that the county now has to care for and the number that will be built in a few years makes ' it expedient that some method should be devised by which the work could be done at the least expense to taxpayers. In the county jail at Fjeehold are a targe number of men who do nothing all day but what the prison routine re-'quires. Each one is convicted of some crime or other, and in order to secure their conviction the money of the taxpayers had to be spent. , It costs the taxpayers more money to feed and lodge them while they are 'erring their sentences. Here is an opportunity for the application of the law of compensation. The breaking of the necessary stone anil the actual work of keeping the roads in repair should be done by these 'prisoners who are supported at the public expense. i The saving thus effected would result I in keeping taxes down. There is another side to this proposi tion that is worthy of note. Imprisonment is as much for the de terring of crime as punishment for it The idea of being made to work on a public road, and thereby branded as a criminal, would hare more of a moral effect than housed in a jail and shut off from public gaze. There is still another phase that recommends such a course. A goodly poriion of the inmates of .the county jail are men who are utterly without self respect or ambition. I The life of the county jail suits them to the top notch because it excludes la-ibor and provides food and shelter. ; Upon this class of men the moral ef-, feet of working as a criminal on the public roads would be lost. But the labor that would be contin- gent upon their being in the jail would prove a most efficacious means of keep-yag them from it. i Tj sum up the whole matter the em-,: ploy men t of the inmates of the county jail on the county roads would be a saving of the taxpayers' money and at the same time put a check on crime. Anyhow it is well worth a trial and the Board of Freeholders should give the matter serious consideration. la response to the demands of the people and the press the Board of Freeholders have decided to buy almost all the turnpikes in the county and make free roads of them. The amount to be paid for them is $27,000 aud it will be money well spent. Every effort should be made to purchase those that are left in order to make the county clear of these relics of by-gone days. TROUBLE IN A CHURCH. Factions Fight Over Possession of Furniture. IjTot many months ago the eolored Baptists at Freehold split into two factions. One faction claimed to be "the real thing" and took the church furniture with them when they separated from the other brothers and sisters. The latter didn't think their opponents had any right to all the furniture, so they concluded to get their share back. -Their pastor is Rev. D. C. Thomas. The paator of the other faction is B. C. Mitchell. On Thursday night the Mitchellites visited the Thomasites and theVe was trouble. The Mitchellites started to remove a bench. Pastor Thomas kicked against this proceeding and in a moment pok;re, stove lids and other things were flying through the air. Pastor Thomas used a poker with good effect. The Mitchellites were driven off after they had secured eight benches. Yesterday John Simmons, a Mitchellite, made complaint against Thomas for banging him with a poker and another against Ella Hanlet for maiking him in the face with her finger nails. Pastor Thomas says he was assaulted, too, and cot-templates making complaints. . Sea Brighter' Leg Broken. J- A. Howland has the contract for pumping sand behind the bulkheads of the 8i lV Bright bridge. He was at work on the eastern r approach of the bridge ' on Monday and had the discharge pipe trigged about twelve feet high, on a scow. t The support which held the pipe broke ' and the pipe fell to the deck of the scow. Rowland's father, Jesse Howland, and ' John Thompson were on the scow when i the pipe fell.. It struck Thompson and , broke Hs leg Just below theinee.tmak-(ing a compound fracture.-; Howland ei leaped injury by jumping ovfcrboard. ; , What Other People Think A column devoted to the views of others and through which they can air their indiridual opinions concerning public matters. ::::::: Editors op The Standard : The crusade against spitting in public places, which is being waged with success in New York, should be started in Red Bank. A certain class of men stand with their backs to the build in?s and flood the sidewalks with tobac cojiuce. lhis is particularly a nui sanee on Saturday night when the town is crowded with people. This spitting is not only obnoxious to auy, decent man, but it is particularly so to women whose dresses trail through the filth These spitters are guilty of disorderly conduct. If the police would make an arrest or two it might, perhaps, cause an abatement of the nuisance. Anti-Spit. OBSERVATIONS. Almost every reader of The Stan dard has views on public questions, but he has not always an opportunity to air them. A public discussion of the things that interest the public is always healthy. It makes people think concerning public matters, and provokes an interest in them that perhaps would not be brought about by any other means. There Is a column In The Standard de voted to the vit ws of the public on public matters. Anyone is welcome to its use for such a purpose, but not for the grinding of personal axes against private individuals. All communications must be signed with the name of the writer, but the name will not be used when so requested. I often wonder if the people of the town take enough interest in the public school work. Yesterday as I glanced over the excellent exhibits which are to be sent to Buffalo exposition I was more than ever impressed with the idea that the scholars should be encouraged in their endeavors. In this connection why wouldn't it be a good plan to have an exhibit of school work in Red Bank so that the parents of the children could inspect it and observe what they were being taught? I am sure that the schol ars would like it and the teachers themselves would feel that their efforts were being appreciated. It's the unusual that sometimes hap pens. The postmaster at Hazlet got tired recently of drawing pay from the Government and gave up the office. Now it is reported that the editor of the Police Gazette has rented a cottage at Ocean Grove. I shouldn't be surprised if I was next informed that Asa Francis would not ask for any more political offices or even that Morris Pach had decided to be a Democrat. OBITUARY. Jeremiah Bendy.

A cablegran was received by Henry E. Cooper of West Freehold yesterday that his son, Abijah E. Cooper, had died Wednesday on the armored cruiser New York, on which Cooper was a seaman. The cause of death was not stated. Admiral Rogers sent the dispatch to Mr. Cooper, the message being dated at Port Said, the western entrance of the Suez canal. Naturally the news came as a great shock to Mr. Cooper who had no intimation his son had been ill. Young Cooper enlisted in the navy about two years ago. Previous to that he served in Company I of Freehold through the Spanish-American war. He was 18 years of age and was home on leave last July. The father of the dead boy is a farmer at West Freehold and he intends to have the remains shipped home.

Some of the means used towards that end have been unique and have caused much favorable cpmment. He is a shrewd buyer, a good advertiser and a close student of the demands of the public, which, in a great measure, would account for the success that has come to him. Unlike the late P. T.

WIKOFF, 8ucceasor to PAUL T RED BANK, FIEE PSOOF Short Tails On Advertising py cnanes No. 10. Some time ago one of the largest and most liberal advertisers in a leading Eastern city had a successful sale of a stock of goods obtained through the failure of a competitor. The man who failed had a large capital invested in his business. He carried a line of goods above the aver- ge for completeness and desirability. There seemed to be no reason for his failure except ope. His store was poorly advertised. In one of the advertisements of the firm which bought the stock, the statement was made : " The store was poorly advertised, so poorly, indeed, that few people knew of the existence of so great a business house anywhere east of. Main street." This transaction furnishes an object lesson that is most conclusive. The man who failed advertised, but he did not advertise right, or enough. His stock was sold out by the advertiser who did advertise properly and liberally. "HeUidn t urtufr-d'se. His stock wax told out by the ad-vertiser who did." There is no doubt about this. The business men who fail to appreciate it are likely to find themselves so far behind the times that, they will never catch up. It is always better to advertise a little too much than not quite enough. It is better to use a little more time than is necessary in the consideration of advertising and the preparation of advertisements than it is to be ever so little careless about it.

The man who handles it carelessly is sure to wish he hadn't. The mere fact that a men advertises is by no means an insurance of business success. He must give constant, careful thought to the subject. It is the only part of his business which will never run itself. You can get any other department in the business down to such a system that it will require very little thought, but the successful advertiser must be always alert and must never take his hand off the advertising rudder for an instant. Every day people are gaining more and more confidence in advertising. More and more of them are turning to the advertising columns of the paper for information. York.
