Degree. Many of the tailors and best dressmakers are cutting even rich silk gowns on the cross, iffhis gives -a certain novel look to the dress and at the same time a more graceful effect than the old straight form. Extra wide silk only is used in this manner. There Is, however, an objection to a skirt cut in this shape, which is, that unless most carefully arranged, a skirt shaped on the cross has a decided tendency " to lift here and to droop -there," which is destructive of elegance, i Miss Eliza Blackford, of New Market, is ill,at the advanced age of 86 years.

The pastor of the Sacred. Heart Church spoke against intemperance at yesterday morning's services in terms that must have been comprehensible to the dullest mind The priest's denounciation of those persons who disgrace the Sabbath and disrespect the laws of God by going- on beer drinking es- eursiona, was justly vigorous. He regards men who participate "in such unseemly pastime as inferior to the brute, the latter having but instinct to guide it, while man has a soul which is promisee eternal happiness as the price of a life wel! lived. The quadruped obeys the law of nature by eating and drinking a sufficient quantity, while man, created to enjoy the kingdom to come, often violates not only the laws of nature, but of nature's God. Man proves himself unworthy comparison with the brute when he drowns his intelligence in the intoxicating cup. Every day brings' its quota of misery through drink to the Police Courts. The names of the unfortunate rum wrecked wretches are often withheld for the sake of their families, to whom public exposure should bring a sense of shame as keen as the pangs of death almost. Last night a man, covered with blood, and noisome with the fumes of liquor that agitated his Internal and fired his brain, cajled at the Police Staslou and asked that hia brother-in-law who was in the same condition and with whom he had just had a fight, be driven out from under his roof. He stated that his brother-in-law, who was a widower had since the death of his wife, boarded with him. This morning a man was brought before Justice Mitchell for drinking to excess and abusing his wife. These are but everyday examples of the effect of intoxicating drinks, and they are legion everywhere in the bosom of the broad earth where strong drink is traf- Sced in. . This is why such as the pastor of the 3acred Heart Church Hit their voices against what must be regarded as an impending national danger. Bitten by a Dog. Saturday afternoon paper-carrier Charley Crossen was bitten on the arm by a dog belonging to one Leppert on Seaman street. The wound was cauterized by Dr. Lippl n- cott, who thinks the lad will experience no serious consequences. The boy has been attacked by this same dog on several occasions before, and yet it does not appear that the slightest precaution was taken to prevent a recurrence. Such accidents as these would seem to be sufficient argument in favoring of muzzling ,he army of worthless but dangerous brutes that exist in our midst. Who is safe from their attacks if it suits theirwhim to attack? Sot a single pedestran/man, woman or child, is safe while these brutes are allowed the run of the town without any restraint upon the exercise of their fangs. Is not the danger apparent to every aonable beipg, whether the owner of a or not? • • Common Council passed a resolution that all dogs running at large, unmuzzled, should be captured, put in pound, and, if not ransomed la 24 hours, put to death. The resolution placed the responsibility upon the Mayor, whose duty it was to issue a proclamation in accordance therewith. He has not done so, assigning as a reason or his refusal, it is said, that no man can >e procured who will catch dogs for 25 cents ahead. Certainly no woman will Volunteer to do the work.' Why not raise the "price hen 3 rea- dog Rydsdyk 'Wins. The. ranch, talked about race between the .rotters Lanamore, owned by J. Whitehead, and Billy Rydsdyk, owned by J. Holmes •Jergen, took place on the Middlesex Driving Course Saturday afternoon, and resulted in an easy victory for Rydsdvk. Mr. Bergen drove his own horse, while Mount Morris icld the ribbons over Whitehead's pride. ?our tests decided the race. In the last heat Morris was accused of allowing his horse to •un, and in one of the heats a collision was narrowly avoided. The stakes §500 to $300, Mr, Whitehead lacking his confidence in Lanamore by the difference in the amounts. He lost the race and his money, but not his game. Very much money exchanged hands on the result, R. H. Becker, jr., being one of the arge winners. Lanaraore won the first and only heat in 2.34 %. Rydsdyk won the next ,hreeheats inthe followingtirneS.31^, 2.37, S.35. Mr. Whitehead was made the subject of much bantering after the race. There was a rumor on the streets this morning that he shot Lanamore in the stable after the race. If Prof. Apgar Had instructed the children of the public schools where to get the best shoes for the east money he would be doing a very sub- tantiat benefit, not only to the children but o their parents. No doubt the Board of iducation would have taken it into consid oration and found this act outweighed, In he balance oyustice, all his short comings, and he would still be Sunerintendant of the i'ublic Schools, but as he did not so instruct them we take the liberty of saying that Tarding & Mansfield, No 9 Peace street, is ,he place where the finest and best shoes can >e bought for the least money in the State 'f New Jersey..".,.. Interesting Meeting- At the Y. M. C. A. rooms on Sunday afternoon an interesting Gospel meeting was iciil, with a good attendance. The subject, Thich was "Courage," was taken up and developed by several of the young mea. _ The phenomenal success of Ayer's Sarsa-' ariiis started into existence a host of com- >etitors. This, of course, -was to be espeet- ed; but the effect has been to demonstrate rhe superior merits of Dr. Ayer's prepara- ion by a consta Uy Increasing demand for it. OF WIMJAEf KENT. Iblauy JSelatlves, ITfiiencIs &nd Prominent Citizens pay Their lust Tribute to tSie Bead. The funeral of our prominent and honored citizen, William Kent, who passed, quietly away in full trust of his Master on the morning of July 23, took place this afternoon from his late residence,115 Church street, at 2.30 o'clock, and at the First Baptist Church of which he was a member and officer for many years, at 3 o'clock. The 'services both at the resdence and church were largely attended by relatives and friends among whom were many of our prominent citizens, who had learned to honor the deceased for his uprightness and well rounded Christian character. The services at the house were performed by Rev. M. V. McDuffle, assisted by the Rev. J. W. Searles, of Metuchen, who prayed earnestly for God's blessing upon the services, and beseeching Him to guide the bereaved family into paths which would terminate in lives equally as useful, and be fraught with the same blessings to mankind as that of the deceased. At the church the services were singularly impressive throughout. Rev. Mr. McDuffle, who conducted the services, took for the foundation of bis remarks in reference to the life and work of the deceased the, words founds in 1st Samuel xx. 18 :" Then Jonathan said to David, to-morrow is the new moon; and thou shalt be missed, because thy seat will be empty," Mr. McDuffie said that the life, the example and cheerful presence of the deceased would be singularly missed. Not only would he be missed from the fact that his seat at home and at the church would be empty, but his ever-wise council in matters pertaining to his family and to the church of God would be felt. He was a man who always had a kind word for all, even the most bumble person. This won for him the large circle of friends which was his to enjoy. We miss him to-day. Who will take his place? On the casket, which was of rosewood heavily mounted with silver, were these words : At Rest. Died July 23, 1891, William Kent, aged 76 years, 10 months and 6 days. The interrment, which was under the charge of Undertaker Lane, was in Elmwood Cemetery. Tbe Work of One of Elizabeth's Wild Beasts. In Elizabeth, on Saturday evening, little James Steve, aged 8, was sent to John Edge, worth's for milk. A big and ugly dog which Edgeworth kept there was unchained in the yard and at once sprang upon the little boy, knocked him down end began to tear his flesh from him, beginning at the head. Mrs. Edgeworth tiied to call the dog off when she heard the-boy's cry, but could do nothing with the beast, and the child was only rested when some men had been called with clubs—with which they beat off the dog. James presented a shocking appearance. His head and face were covered with blood. His scalp was torn off from the crown of his bead to the base of his ears. One of his ears was nearly severed. An ambulance was called and the boy was taken as quickly as possible to the City Hospital. Besides the scalp wound the doctors found three ugly cuts on the upper part of the Dody. All were caused by the dog's teeth. The blood was washed away and the wounds sewed up. It required fifty-eight stitches. The physicians said it was the worst case of the kind they ever saw, and for some days the boy's condition would be critical. As he las a robust constitution they think he will reeover. He will be scarred for life. The ferocious animal was shot by a policeman. Its owner will perhaps be sued for " damages." If he was not kept to tear children to pieces, it will be interesting to earn at a trial jugt what the beast was kept 'or. Able Sermons. Rev. P. Theodore Pockman, pastor of the First Reformed Church, preached two able sermons yesterday. Tbe one in the morning was nicely woven around the text found in 2d Sam. zxiii, 15: "And David longed, and said, ' Oh, that one would give me a drink of the water of the well of Bethlehem, which is by the gate.'" His supreme .bought was the great sacrifice of the people, and David's greater sacrifice of a thing he so much loved. The subject of his evening sermon was 'How to Rest." His text was Mark vi, 31-32: " And He said unto them, Come ye •ourselves apart into a desert place and rest awhile. And they departed into a desert Jlace by ship privately. ' Mr. Poctsman showed'that a quiet place was a place for resting the mind, looking over the work of the past and preparing for the future. Rev. J. Morgan Read, pastor of the-Pitman M. E. Church, preached a sermon on : 'The character of Pilate." His text was aken from Matt, xsviii, 24. He said that when Pilate washed his hands he congratu ated himself on the fact that he was freed >om .responsibility of the death of Jesus. Jut notwithstanding this fact he was as responsible as those to whom lie'released Him. ilen to-day in public office would wash their lands oi the responsibility of office, but the duty to enforce the la\va and rules of such office was still binding upon them. Astied fo? an Aceounttas. Mr. George Berdine, of the firm of Clark & Berdipe, has -made application to the lourt to have an accounting aod adjustment of the accounts of the concern. The object of this is to see how the firm, after a year's business, stands. It °is probable, however, hat the business will hereafter be conducted n the name of one of the. members of the firm only. Hibernia'B Piente. Hibernia Engine Company's picnic In the Artesian Spring Grove Saturday was liberally oatronlzed.. It was continued until a late soar in the evening. The sum realized from all sources will net nearly ^200. The eom- )any lias not yet decided whether or not to donate a portion of the-proceeds to the Soldiers' Monument Fund. THE CHOP BULLETIN. Another Week of Good Weather—Cora Promises Weil—Potatoes Afieeted by Droughts. The observers and crop correspondents of the New Jersey Weather Service report that during the week endiag July 24, the temperature and sunshine have been about the seasonal average in all portions of the State. The rainfall has been more evenly distributed than on former weeks, falling on three days, at the beginning-, middle and close of week. 'In the extreme northern, southeastern and southern portions the total for the week was slightly above the average, while in the middle portions it was below it. These conditions were, on the whole, favorable to all crops, especially corn, which is now In a most ; promising condition. Potatoes in some districts, notably the portions of the northern and middle counties, have been seriously affected • by the drought anil the yield will not be near as great as indicated from the growth of the vines earlier in the season. In portions of Middlesex the yield has also heeii impaired by insect pests. Fruits continue to mature well and early orchard varieties are now in market. Grapes are reported doing nicely, also that the black rot has not increased during the week. In the extreme southwestern portion heavy rains have retarded the harvesting of oats and were also injurious to vine truck. THE NATIONAL GAME. Saturday's Scores— Tire tesgue and Assocls t!on Records.

If all the plans are carried out that are said to be under the consideration of the Pennsylvania Railroac for the improvement of property at Robiuvale, there is every probability of that little suburb of Metuchen becoming a place of beauty and importance. Rumor says that they have purchased or are about to purchase the beautifully located property known as the Redfield place, and that they have had maps drawn up showing a most complete net-work of streets and building lots, upon which they intend build- Ing cottages. One reason for the foundation of this rumor Is given that when Mr. Wright Roblps built Robinvale Station the Pennsylvania signed a contract to stop six trains each way a day. It is said to cost §6 to stop a train, and at that rate at the lowest calculation It costs the company §72 per day, not counting the cost of keeping the ,icket agent and the money spent in keeping the building and grounds in repair. Several times the Pennsylvania Railroad Company asked to be released, but have failed. They are too honorable to attempt to set it aside by law, and consequently are considering making the above improvements. There is ne better place than the Redfield property Tor building a small colony of cottages, and, were such a plan put :nto effect, the result to a large company like the Pennsylvania would be profitable.—[Inquirer.

D. •OF CONCERN TO GUAKDSSIEN. A Notable Government Beport Upon ^ire- arms.. The report of the Chief of Ordnance for 1890, though chiefly about heavy ordnance, has several chapters in relation to small caliber arms and ammunition. The portion relating to the experimental work on new small-bore rifles for the army contains much that is of general .interest, as the National Guard of the several States will,' of course, be armed with the new rifles •vvlien issued. The arm that seems to be the favorite at this time is of 30-100 caliber, with one turn in 9-5 inches. This quick twist Is necessary on account of the high velocity contemplated. There will be three equal lands and grooves, the -latter to be 0.005 inch deep. On account of the high pressure and consequent sticking of shells in the chamber, it has not yet been fully decided whether the Springfield system can be utilized or not. The "positive cam" of this action makes it absolutely safe, but unless the form and elasticity of case .can be made so as to giro practically no resistance to extraction of the shell the Springfield action will bernleci oat. At the Frankford arsenal they are now making 100,000 cartridges for experimental purposes, these being loaded with the Wettcran (Belgian) powder. This is considered one of the best of the smokeless powders as at present made, and 500 pounds of it will be used in the experimental work. The total weight of the bullet to be used will be 230 grains, this weight being slightly in excess of the projectiles used by European powers in arras of the same caliber. The bullet will be incased in copper, which will not be soldered to the lead of the bullet. The first lot of shells will be bottle necked. Copper primers,especially made, will be used. The velocity of the ball will be about 1,800 feet per second. The Ordnance office has recommended that a board be convened to select a suitable magazine mechanism, after a full and free competition among all the best existing systems, cs soon as the necessary preparations can be made. HOW HORSES SWIM. Their Buoyancy Tories as Blncli as That of ETomsn Beinss. A contributor. to the London Field writes that swimming horses across a flooded creek or river is a common and on some stations almost daily occurrence in Australia during the rainy season. " As a rule I have remained seated in the saddle while swimming my horse across a flooded river," he says, " and have found the buoyanc}' of the horse to vary quite as much as that of a human being. I have had some horses which would swim with the seat of the saddle clear above the. water, while others, on the contrary, swam so deeply that only the ears, eyes and nose were visible. In the latter case the sooner the rider slips over the tail the better. If you are not in the saddle I do not think it matters much whethter you swim at the horse's head or his tail, or on your bade, breast or Bide. Of course, the nearer you are to his head the better chance you have of guiding him if necessary, but as a rule horges will swim as fast and as straight as they can to the nearest landing point. In the whole course of my experience I have seen but one horse ua- able or unwilling to swim, and on this occasion the horse turned on his side immediately it found Itself in deep water, and refusing to make the slightest effort it was drowned. In my opinion the most important thing to do when swimming any horse across a stream is to unbuckle your snaffle rein, and, if riding with a double-reined bri-1 die, cut the stitches of the curb rein. Practically, the only danger there is lies In the risk'of the horse getting his forelegs entangled in the bridle, which can easily be avoided. Steamers fleariy Cctlitie.
