Consider Sanatorium Water Supply
Waterboard Puts Matter Over Until Next Regular Meeting
Commissioners Meet Supt Corkery and Also Decide on
Location For the Foundations For the Buildings.
Thursday evening there was a spe
cial meeting' of the board of water
commissioners for the purpose of con
sidering the matter of extending the
water main to the tuberculasis sana
torium, below Thamesville. It will be
necessary to continue the six inch main
in the highway a distance of 1.S00 feet j
at an expense of about $1,800, while i
Hie state will have to bear the expense
i f putting in" the pipe from the high
way about 1,000 to 1,!00 fet to the
point where the buildings will be.
The hoard discussed the matter for
about an hour, and finally put the mat
ter over for the next regular meeting,
at which time they will be a position
to know the needs of the sanatorium,
and they will take up all the propor
tions concerning extending the mains
outside the city. The board is favor
ably disposed to do ail it can. and if
the sanatorium was within the city
'imits they would not hesitate, but it
will necessitate putting this extention
in outside the city, which their char
ter does not permit them to do, and U
applies also to the Thermos building,
it is probable that the next legislature
will be asked to approve it 1f the lines

FEW LOVE LETTERS
AT GENERAL DELIVERY.
Postmaster Caruthers Put Stop to It
Several Years Ago.
The efforts that are being made by
-.he various postmasters throughout the
oitntry to prevent the abuse of the
general delivery is deserving of great
commendation. The general delivery
department ot a postoffice is intended
for transients, as the government pro
vides letter carriers to deliver mail to
all parts of the city, and the deliveries
are so arranged that mail Is delivered
.iromptly to the addresses.
Postmaster Caruthers of this city
iias kept a careful watch of the gen
eral delivery for many years and clan
destine correspondence has been great
ly restricted and almost entirely elim
inated. While it is probably an im
possibility to stop all of this kind of
correspondence, still the movement
has the hearty support of all of the
leading citizens of the city, and Post
master Caruthers is to be commended
for his work in this line, as in many
cities a great many girls and women
have used the general delivery Instead
of having their mail delivered at their
In fact, very few complaints have
been received by tbe postmaster for the
past five or six years previous to which
time the good work was first started
NEW LONDON HAS FEARS.
Don't Want Willimantic Cars Run
ning Into That City.
According to the statement in tne
Willimantic news in The Bulletin this
morning, the trolley cars arriving from
there, which have ordinarily proceeded
on their through trip to New London,
will not be allowed to do so today,
owing ;o the protest of the New Lon
don health officer. Dr. J. T. Black.
This is because of the discovery of
the eleven cases of smallpox in Wil
limj.ir.ic, and the Now London health
officer has taken this means of pre
venting a possible carrying of the con
tagion to his city.
One set of cars, accordingly, will
have to be used between Willimantic
and Norwich, and another set between
Norwich and New London, compelling
passengers to change at Franklin
square. Health Officer Black was in
commcnication with Supt. Samuel An
derson on Thursday afternoon on the
subject of prohibiting the cars cum
ins to New London, and although the
superintendent pointed out that the
passtngers were much more apt to
carry any contagion than the cars,

AT THE AUDITORIUM.
Good Vaudeville and Motion Pictures.
In the three vaudeville acts at the
Auditorium for the end of the week,
which gave their first showing on
Thursday, a varied line of two musical
numbers combined with feats of magic
and mystery to make an attractive bill.
Countess Leontine in classical solos is
heard to advantage in her soprano se
lections, which meet with favor, and
in the other musical act appear D'Orva
and De Leon in gems from grand
opera, playing eleven different ' string
instruments in the. course of their act.
Mile. D'Orva features the act In a
finely executed coloratura soprano
number In the waltz song from Romeo
and Juliet (Gounod) In French, for
which she is given enthusiastic ap
plause. Puzzling and entertaining is the
mysterious Valdos in his cabinet of
mystery, from which he rings bells,
shakes tambourines, and passes out
bouquets of flowers after having ap
parently been tied up securely in a
bag. He releases himself from the
ba-g in quick time and also puts on and
takes off his coat after bis hands have
been locked together wjih -handcuffs.
His art mates a lot of fun for the

It has been decided to have the Post
house remain, and It will be used by
the employes of the sanatorium. The
barn will also be retained. The com
missioners walked from the house to
the hillside where the sanatorium is to
be built, and it was finally decided
that the foundation will be laid out on
the brow of the hill, the front of the
building being to the south. This will
be from 1.01)0 to 3.200 feet from the
highway, reached by a cinder top drive.
There will be the strip of woods at the
rear of the building as a windbreak
There is an excellent view from the
site selected in all directions and pa
tients will have the benefit of much
traveling past the farm. The building,
which will be three stories in height
for the administration building, will
extend 136 feet back, going within 75
feet of the rear boundary. Back of
the administration building will be the
infirmary, while the two wards will
extend on each side between the two
buildings. Other buildings will be
erected for incipient cases. No others
have been planned for now. but later
there will probably be additions made.
W. L. Morsn and W. R. Balcom of
the local telephone office met the com
missioners at the Post place and ar
range to have a telephone installed
in the Post house. Later one will be
put In for Contractor Carpenter. When
the sanatorium is finished several will
be put In there, and figures are to toe

placing the wires underground from
the highway to the building, laying
them in the same trench with the wa

electric wires go underground also if
The board left here about 11 o'clock
for Hartford, but they will have occa
sion to be here frequently as soon as
the work on the toirfldings is starred.
Contractor Carpenter intends to gft to
work at once, so that the sanatorium
will be completed In September.
FOR SUPERIOR COURT.
Doctors Say He is Not Safe Man to

The continued case against Patrick

John H. Barnes. The accused, who Is

various parts of the city and of steal

other witnesses, Chief Murphy told of

The accused was examined briefly.
