Last week we visited the Annual Furniture Exposition in New York City. One of the most perplexing questions the furniture buyer has to consider this spring is that of bedding. Advanced prices in cottonelting, fibre, moss, ticking, in fact all materials used in the manufacture of high grade mattresses have advanced the prices of the made up mattresses accordingly.

in this line and while in New York contracted for SEVERAL CARLOADS
of these goods at the former low prices. The first shipment of this lot has arrived and on
We guarantee you greater values in all grades of mattresses than you have ever been offered before. These special prices will prevail for a limited time only. Don't fail to be one of the many who will be wise and buy bedding at this time.

Further Reprieve For Mrs. Tolla.
Governor Stokes of New Jersey has granted to Mrs. Antoinette Tolla, the Hackensack murderess, a further reprieve of 60 days in order to allow her counsel to present further evidence for a new trial.

Arcadian Weekly Gazette.
W. C. & F. D. BURGESS, Publishers.
Entered at the Post-office at Newark, New York, as second-class mail matter.
WEDNESDAY, FEB. 14, 1906

These are some of the more important questions for Newark people to be considering at this time:
1-Sewerage System.
2-Band concerts in the park at municipal expense.
3-Paving--some to be done each year.
4-Mr. Rew's proposition to build a building for the boys.
5-A mortuary chapel in Willow avenue cemetery.
6-Ward schools for the younger grades.
7-Better protection from electric wires.
9-Village Hall.
9-Park improvement before the trees all die.
10-A park system in different parts of the village.
11-A business course in the High School.
12-A proper entrance to Murray street.
13-An Old Home Week
14-A Federal building in Newark.

Arrangements for the trade carnival are progressing finely and all the merchants are taking a deep interest in it. As will be seen by the re-prints in another column the papers of the neighboring villages are many of them making favorable comments and unquestionably a good deal of enthusiasm is being aroused throughout this and Ontario counties. Newark is preparing to take care of several thousand people during the three days of the sale.

Some very important business was transacted at the regular monthly meeting of the Board on Tuesday evening of last week, as will be seen by the proceedings on another page. The first matter of any importance was the ordering of a change in the sign board on Williams street. This was done at the request of R___ S. K. Williams. A similar request ____ made some years ago by the late Fletcher Williams, but the mistake crept back when the new sign boards were put up. This street was named for the Williams family and it was by mistake, either of the village clerk or of the sign painter, that the name was changed to William street when the sign boards were placed. It is important that the names of such streets as were laid out by or named after the old families should be preserved, as they stand as a monument to those families.

The most important matter of business considered at this meeting was in connection with a new village hall. The committee appointed by the Village Board to inspect the building reported that it can no longer be considered a safe place for public gatherings and the Village Board have, therefore, ordered the second floor of the building closed to the public. This old building, which was first a Methodist church, then a theatre on the second floor and a saloon on the first, and latter a village hall, has had an interesting and varied career, and while the building is no longer appropriate for a village hall nor safe for public gatherings, it is a pity to demolish such an old landmark. Following this action of the Board a petition was circulated among the business men asking the Board to take measures to provide a new village hall. This petition with its signatures will be found under the Board proceedings. While the Gazette believes there are other things which the village needs more than it needs a village hall, at the same time it never has been our policy to stand in the way of improvements and we have, therefore, signed the petition and will give the movement all the support we possibly can. We do not believe, with our spendthrift neighbor, the editor of the Courier, that the Board should be allowed to spend any amount of money so long as it gets its money's worth; neither do we believe that a new hall should be built on the present site. Nevertheless, whatever seems wise to the Board and its advocates will have the support of this paper. Anything to improve Newark. Another important matter of business, one that concerns every resident of Newark, was the adoption of the new ordinances of the Municipal Board. These will also be found on another page and should be carefully perused.

It will be seen also that the village is proceeding with its plans for a new sewer system as a committee was appointed to go to Albany to submit the plans to the state authorities.
