Solid Rubber Tires on the Wheels to Prevent Shaking the Patient, "Oh ! how I do bate to see- that Black Undertaking Wagon coming up to our door to take my husband to the hospital. It makes me shudder.' These are the senti ments expressed by a lady distinguished for her goodness, refinement and ability, living here in Waterbury. It always struck ns that way. but we had to wait to see how far this feeling extended, ss we do not think it good business judgment to go to far ahead of the people. We want to keep only a Little ahead of the procession. Speaking as an undertaker, there is no rea son why we should make death sadder than it is. To dispel the gloom with which death is surrounded, kind hearted neighbors send White flowers to the homes of dear departed friends. Our ministers consider it the proper thing now adays, in speakiDg over the remains of their parishioners, to take a more hopeful view of death, because science, twentieth century theology, and common sense war rants it. The white casket, which has come into common use during the past ten years, is an indication of how enlightened public opinion is moving. The purple casket, the steel gray, the ashes of roses, the sub stantial solid oak, the pink, the lavender, all the delicate and cheerful colors which are emblematio of rest, joy and eternal life, are now in use. We believe it is the mission of JOHN MORIARTY & CO, the People's Undeb tikees, to encourage these sentiments, and therefore we have at great expense, prooured a White Ambulance to meet the popular demand. (Our black ambulance will still be here for those who desire it.) Our new Undertaking Department, fitted up exclusively upon our own plan, is now completed, and our largely increased busi ness has compelled us to exhibit 100 Gas kets, All in Sight, so that our customers oan tell at a glance what he or she desires. As price is always a delicate question to dwell upon in this particular department of our extensive business, we snail leave it to our patrons to judge by the long years of experience which they haye had of our fair and honorable dealings.

"A shooter from Shootersville" Is what western admirers call Fred Gilbert, the modest young marksman who recently entered the American cha rnplonship handicap live bird tournara e n t at Jialti more, un heralded and un known, and suc ceeded in defeat ing many of the most famoxis trap shooters in the United States. Thoso well up to the garno expected Brewer, Fulford, Grimm, Bingham and a number of others to get in side of the money, but Gilbert was never .given a thought. Gilbert was born on a farm near Spirit Lake, la., FRED GILBERT. 30 years ago. His mother and father were among tne pioneers or tno vicinity, and on numerous , occasions barely escaped death from hostile Indians. Gilbert early developed a fondness for a gun and a won derful ability to handle ono. When Gil bert was IS years of age, William Wiggins of St. Louis, himself a good shot, spent much of his time at Spirit Lake, and. whenever possible, took Fred with him on shooting excursions, and thousands of ducks, gceso and prairio chickens wero ehot by these two hunters. Gilbert wa9 always modest about com peting in tournaments, and no amount of argument could induce him to put him self forward, but within two years ho has shot at various smaller towns in Iowa and Minnesota, and, at Davenport, last win ter, won a first prize. In Omaha, in June, he wa3 again first, and second at Minneapolis this fall. Gilbert, when not engaged in shooting for the market, is al ways ready for work, and if a job as a grocery clerk is not to be had ho will work on a farm or perform any kind of labor. Some years ago he joined tho Baptist church and has been married two years. Many stories aro told of him. Last June at Omaha, where he made a big run, ho was known to tho participants, who mado much fun of him. lie was asked what slough he was raised on, where he farmed, etc. When he commencod shooting, he broko the clay birds continuously till tho twenty-seventh, which he mipsed. Then derision broko out again, and "tho farmer is done for," "his good luck is over," "ho won't hit any more" and similar remarks to annoy him were made, but ho again commenced breaking clay birds, and from that point broke 83 without missing one. He broke 213 targets out of 220 on tho first day, 221 out of 235 on tho second day and 131 out of 135 on the last day, an avcfag6 for the three days of 96 16-59. At tho recent Baltimore shoot he was placed at the 27 yard mark, six yards be hind the scratch man. What he can do from scratch against snch men as Brewer, Elliott and Fulford remains to bo seen. ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD. W. Adams i3 captain of Harvard's fresh man eleven this year. Knipo of Pennsylvania has been coach ing the Union college eloven. Poe, tho little . Princeton quarter back, tips the beam at only 135 pounds. Harvard is tryfng moro of Deland's sci entific tricks this year, but they were easy for Princeton. Captain Langdon Lea of Princeton Is srid to bo out of tho game for tho year on account of injuries. Canceling the Ponnsylvania-Boston A. C. game in 2Sew York will cost Pennsyl vania just $2,S93.94. Norton Shaw, who played right guard for Harvard last year, has met with an in jury which will prevent his playing this year. SOCIETY PRWTnG.

It was the opinion of the mayor and both members of the board that the tax should be kept dQwn to twenty mills and they at once began to whit tle down the appropriations. It was decided to reduce the appropria tion for police to the tune of $,2000, temporarily, and $5,000 was taken from the amount asked for extension of water pipes. Mayor Kilduff suggested that $5,000 be taken on streets, paving; 310, 000 off sewers, new work, and $5,000 off street assessments. After further dis cussion it was voted to defer final action on the appropriations until the next meeting, to be held on Monday, Novem ber 25. City Clerk Grady read a communica tion from City Attorney Burpee respect ing the judgment against the city ob tained by Charles .LoelHer. In substanoe he saw no legal points on which the case could be appealed from the decision of the supreme court of errors. The judg ment was for 1,083.67, including the expenses of an extension which was served upon the city. A bill for this amount was signed by the board. The suit grew out of damage which plaintiff suttered at the time of the Lawrence street extension. BOUNCER IS A WONDER. nr Campaign This Tear Has Never JSeea Equaled by a Four-year-old Trotter. Tho Horseman believes that the great 4-ycar-old trotting more bouncer, 2:10, is the greatest campaigner of her age that ever lived. She is a racy looking mare, with clean cut, bony head and an excep tionally fine set of legs. She is a light bay, stands 16 hands high and is noticeable for her strong shoulders and quarters and her unusual depth through the heart. She is good headed, beautifully gaited and shows "race" in every line and movement, llf ing slow to get into her stride, she canndt soore down as fast as most of the 2:15 trot ters. Her strong point is her finishing capac ity, in which few trotters ever on tho turf can compare with her, and in no instance this year has eho failed to win the heal BOTTKCEB, 2:10) when she was within two lengths of ths leader at the three-quarter pole, except in one heat at Detroit, where she made a break nearing the wire. She has made but two broaks in her races this season. Bouncer was bred by her present owner, William Simpson of Cuba, N. Y. Her sire, Hummer, a son of Electioneer, out of Edith "Wilkes, by George Wilkes, gran dam Edith Carr (dam of Campbell's Elec tioneer, 2:174, and Rockefeller), by Clark Chief, was bought when a youngster by Mr. Simpson, and her dam, Musette, by Mambrino Patchen, out of Ida, by Ver mont, was a member of Mr. Simpson's band of brood mares until she died last spring. Bouncer's greatest victory was In tho Transylvania stake, Lexington, Ky., and her total winnings amount to $3,170. Of the eight races won by her two were four heat contests, two required five heats to settle and one was the famous eight heat contest at Detroit. r' y'VyT . J" r Youp Money back fop the asking
