The Announcement of rather X.enalan
. Critical Illness a Surprise.
It was with feelings of both surprise
and regret that nine tenths of our read-

Rev Father Lenahan yesterday. Father
Lenahan was taken ill immediately at
'the close of the fair, on November 19,
with nervous prostration. His physi-'cian,-
Dr Robbing was sent for. In a few
days his old complaint of the liver,
with rheumatic 'difficulties, set in and
he ha3 been, and is at the time of writ
ing, very low with what may be termed
a cancer of the liver, which, we are in
formed, in it: last stages produces a
dropsical affection which the patient has
been a sufferer from for some days, Dr
'Bacon of New Haven has been the con
sulting physician. Very little hope is
held out for his recovery. St Francis
.parish has been particularly unfortunate
in the deatt of priests, three having al
ready p-.ssed away within the past
twenty ear Fa'ther Hart, Father
O'Gorman and Father Fagan. Father
Lenahan has beu here a little over two
years, and has made many improvements
n the pr pert'.

The board of charities met last night
and accepted the semi-annual report of
Superintendent Langford.
Mr and Mrs George A. Lewis left for
Southern California to-day.
Judge Benton has appointed Judge
Robert A. Lowe and Colonel Lucien F.
Burpee of Waterbury, commissioners on
the estate of the late Matthew Bierne.
Dr Gerrish of Bridgeport, who was a
former resident here, paid a visit to his
brother Walter on Meadow street last
last night.
The question in the minds of some cf
our citizens is whether we, as a borough,
have a right to place a man who may be
under arrest for a great or no offense
against the law into a lockup that in
very cold weather the frost will show
plainly on the foundation walls, or that
water will freeze in after the fires are
let run down for the night or on Sun
days. The chief of police informs us
that he has asked Mr L-fingford, superin
tendent, of the building, to provu a
stove that can be set in the lobby. A
chimney hole could easily be cut. Mr
Langford thinks it is the warden and
burgesses' business to attend to
this. In the meantime on a
4- .. .......
tuiu infill, u iu;m umu is
arrested, has to have his life endangered
or to furnish a bond whicll is not aiways
obtainable. We know from our own per
sonal knowledge that, there were times
in the past two winters that the place
was too cold to confine anj-one in ; also
that the persons confined there did suffer
from the cold. We now speak in time
and ask the proper authorities to have it
attended to.
While strolling on Sunday we caught
up with Frank Murphy, a staunch old
democrat, who informed us that he had
been carting for many years, but at no
time had he ever seen the streets in the
town in as bad a condition as they are at
the present. In our walk we found there
was a good deal of truth in Mr Murphy's
assertion. Our sidewalks also on many
street.;, could be materially improved up
on. On Hillside avenue the Westerly
Concrete Co expects to close their work
for the winter on Wednesday at the
latest. This will give a very goa J walk on
one side of the street; they will
do the ether side next spring. If the
w eather admits Mr McCabe will rini.u
the Neaiy walk, and will probably
set a portion Ox the curb on Main street.
The Oak Street job will not be fiiislied
and the walk should be leveled up with
ashes until spring. Maple street, east of
thr bridge, has "a short strip on which
the curb snould be set an v' hole rde
safe for people t- travel over. The peo
ple who,travel Church street think they
are being imposed upon by the way the
walk has been leftin fr- cf St Michel's
parish and Andrew's prowarty.

Game Among; XZou'ah.
The recreations oftho monk were fevr
and monotonous. The chief of them was
perhaps tho pacing up and down' the
little walks of the narrow limits of the
cloister and garden, or cemetery, during
certain hours of the day, where even
such gossipy talk as Jocelyn de Brake
londa tells us of in his quaint "Memoirs
of the House of S. Edmund at Bury,"
in the days of King John, was sternly
checked by that obedienciary, the Circa,
as he moved about among the brethren
at recreation. There was a bowling
green for the novices, which the pro
fessed .monks seemed to have used at
times. ThGse novices and the other
schoolboy pupils in the house have left
the traces of their games. On the stone
benches of tho Gloucester cloisters, where
we. know these boys were taught, and
where they spent a portion of their
lives, are playboards not obscurely
marked in the stones.
These gameboards for "fox and
geese," "Nine men's Morris," "in and
out" and othe? games are found in oth
er conventional building at Westmin
ster, Norwich, Salisbury, Durham, etc.
Other vestiges of unlawful recreation oi
the more youthful dwellers in a monas
tery, such as cutting and carving the
stones with letters and other devices,
are occasionally found for instance,
half way up the winding stair of the
great tower at Gloucester there is a
rough little figure in the perfect dress
of a burgher of the time of tho wars of
the roses, evidently the secret work of
a youthful amateur carver in stone.
In some monasteries the'mcnk was al
lowed to possess and to amuse himself
with strango pet animals, such as apes,
peacocks, falcons and even tamo bears.

A Transformation Scene.
A fashionable audience in Paris re
cnt7 listened to a lecture on chemistry
by celebrated chemist. At the conclu
sion of the lecture a lady and gentle
man' who were among the first to leave
the hall had reached the open air, when
the lady caught her escort staring at
her. "What is the matter?" asked the
madame in surprise. "Pardon me, but
you are quite blue!" The lady returned
to the ball and approached a mirror.
She started back in horror. The rouge
upon her cheeks had been converted in
to a beautiful -blue by the chemical de
composition which had taken place un
der the influence of the gases which had
been generated during the lecture. The
majority of the women in the audience
had suffered in a similar manne. There
were all sorts of colorsblue, yellow,
violet and black. Some whose vanity
had induced them to put - ivory on the
skin, coral on the lips, rouge on the
cheeks and black on the eyebrows had

CUBAN PATRIOT PRIEST
Gave Signals From the Belfry oi
His Church.
THUS AIDING THE INSURGENTS.
For Sympathy and Assistance of the Canse
of Independence He Is Arrested and Im
prisoned Youdjz Churchill's Views of the
Cuban Insurrection.
Havana, Dec. 10. A patriotic priest
occupies one of the colls of the Morro cas
tle, and no little oxcitement has been
caused by his arrest It appears from all
reports of the caso that he was not only
in active sympathy with the rebels, but
that he actually sold some of the precious
ornaments of his church and houso and
forwarded tho proceeds to the insurgent
leaders.
He does not deny any of tho charges
and declares that when again liberated he
will join tho insurgent ranks and fight
for the liberty of Cuba. Still, no ono who
is acquainted with tho methods of the
Spanish government of this island be
lieves for an instant that the zealous cure
will soon see tho outside of prison walls.
His little church was located at Cobro, j
In the vicinity of Santiago de Cuba, the
most lively district of Cuba at the present
time. Near the church was the camp of
the Spanish forces, while threo miles
away tho rebe.1 army hovered about. By
perfectly understood signals from the bel
fry of the church the insurgents were kept
informed of every move of the govern
ment troops.
Church bells are rung at almost every
hour in Cuba, and the authorities gave no
heod to the peals from the church tower.
When at length the general In command
became suspicious, the priest raised the
Chilean flag over his church and declared
that he was a citizen of that republic. Of
course no attention was paid to this, and
he was dragged off to prison.
Another priest arrived at Santiago de
Cuba a few days ago, carrying excellent
introductions to tho bishop of that place.
Desiring to ride out into the country, he
borrowed a horse and saddle from the
bishop, and without being molested rode
through tho Spanish lines. As he has not
returned the authorities beliovo he has
joined the Insurgents. '
Tonne Churchill's Opinion.
Tampa, Fla., Dec. 10. Lord Winston
Leonard Churchill, a son of the late Lord
Randolph Churchill, a lieutenant in the
British army, who has been with General
Yaldez's command in Santa Clara, is in
the city. In an interview he says: "I
think tho situation in Cuba is serious.
The winter campaign is intended to be
decisive. Should the Spanish forces suc
ceed in ejecting the revolutionists from
the provinces of Matanzas and Santa
Clara this winter the fight will be prolong
ed indefinitely, as in the last revolution.
If the struggle is prolonged, the insur
gents will gain in numbers on account of
tho general discontent that will exist, and
the government, owing to the enormous
expense involved, will have to decrease its
army and hold only the prinoipal points,
while the country and the smaller places
will be giveu to the insurgents. In that
case that country will soon be in a wretch
ed condition, and the people will bring
much pressuro to bear upon the insurgents
to terminate the struggle, while the Unit
ed States, in behalf of her citizens' inter
ests, will similarly press Spain, and the
result will be that Cuba will gain com
plete autonomy, and Spain will not lose
her colony. Should the insurgents main
tain their position this winter in the prov
inces, then the result Is nearer and more
promising to them.
"The Spaniards do not quite grasp their
way of fighting, and tho Cubans, who
thoroughly understand the woods, have
the advantage. Outside of England I
don't beliove there la another country
which could successfully suppress that
revolution.
"There is an assignment of 35,000
troops now being run Into Cuba, and un
less those in command have arranged a
very brilliant ooup I cannot see whero
these additional troops will help the situa
tion much."

at Mount Holly, Summit Station being
1,440 feet above sea level. Near that
station, when the railroad was building,
the tusks of a large American elephant
were dug up. These are considered the
greatest curiosities ever found in Ver
mont and tire today, or were very re
cently, preserved in the state capital
building. In the same collection of

Found Fault With Hamlet.
There is an old, a very old, tale told
of a venerable lady, who, after seeing
the play of "Hamlet" for the first time,
said, "It is a very good play, as play9
go, but it is made up of quotations."
This " good dame, although she was
probably unaware of it, was acknowl
edging, in a roundabout way perhaps,
the indebtedness of our language to cur
national bard; phrases, sentences and
sometimes whole lines from his writ
ings have been crystallized, as it were,
into colloquial English, and there are
probably more quotations drawn from
the works of Shakespeare than from
those 4of any other author, ancient or
modern. Chambers' Journal.
