WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT,' SATURDAY, JULY 31.' 1897
AS YOU LIKE IT. e Stray Leaves From a Reporter's Note Book. ''"About 9:30 o'clock yesterday morn rngf mi army of boys rushed into the "Democrat" office and wanted to know if the press had started yet. "Why?" asked a reporter, eyeing the youngsters with considerable surprise. Each one ' looked at the other and finally one of them asked if there wasn't an item in the local column last night stating that the paper would be for sale at 10 . O'clock this morning. They were made sensible of the situation in. a few mo ' inents ' and then the whole crowd . laughed at the idea of the thing and .scampered away snickering at how nicely they got fooled. I "In olden times, St Swithin's chimes, rang blithely every day," but now it is rain drops which make the niusic very day, and night, too, it seems, and some people say St Swithin is re sponsible for all of it. We were fa vored with a shower or two on July 15, the anniversary of the canonization of the saint, and it has rained almost every day since. I have heard one per son say it has rained some time during the day or night of every single day , Since, and will continue to do so until August 26, which will be forty days of rain we will have to put up with, all on account of St Swithin, who has been dead a thousand years or more, How do you buy your -coal, by the long toai ot short ton. llsw many I wonder know the difference, and from "Whence ?he custom sprung. I have seenelt explained as follows: In the Baalish avoirdupois 28 pounds is called a quarter, 112 pounds a. liun-t , drediweigh't, and 2,240 pounds a ton. ' In the English system 100 pounds is called a cental. This English system doubtless grew out of the practice of requiring the seller to throw in three pounds to the quarter for good meas ure, or to offset the natural inclination Of the seller to set his scales to record "weights In 'his own favor. The short ton of 2,000 pounds is the American standard for ordinary transactions, though the 'long ton, or shipping ton, is recognized in use for certain pur IKJses, especially in the older commu nities, of the seaboard. There is, of course; a disguised profit for the dealer ivho can buy by the long ton and sell ; by the short ton, The question as to who is entitled to the end seat in a trolley oar is still an open, one.. ; Some persons hold to the opinion that whoever pays their fare to entitled to any seat they may see lit to occupy outside of those set apart In the rear of the oar for smokers. Others think that courtesy, at least, Ought to induce passengers to move in and make room for those who board the car at the -different street cross ings. ..This is a matter which has caus3 touch, . unseemly language at times, and some have gone so far as to ask, through the public press, for in formation on the subject. Of course the editor to whom the query was ad dressed iiad to--admit that there was no law bxw.ych. passengers could be compelled to move from the seat which they were occupying, but the advice which he gave the inquirer might be adopted with possibly good effect. It was this: "Whenever you find that the ' person who is occupying the end seat in a car Tefuses 'to move, the best way to act in making your way to an inner seat is to walk on this person's toes, prod them with your elbows, fall all over him and make 'his position as disagreeable as possible."- A few doses of this kind of medicine will pos sibly Cure this class of their malady. The advice is not bad and should toe univerc&lly adopted. " No one can say that John W. Gaffney missfiad his calling, for it is an estab lished fact thatf as a builder and real estale speculator he is a pronounced success. But what we started out to say aaaut Mr Gaffney is that he would have made a better mark in the world If he had' ehoeen the stage as a pro fession and let some one else fill his place in hid present avocation. He is the keenest humorist off the stage to day, and if he cared to travel on his wits he would discount the best come dian In .the country in less than one year A Democrat" reporter was tell ing him the other day about the phen omenal success that had attended the proprietors of Ben-Mohr and Grand view. Heights and wanted to know why he ot, some of the rest of the local real estate men had not taken hold of the vast traot of land long ago and gather In the fabulous sum of money that the property will bring. The contractor listened with the greatest attention and when the reporter paused Mr Gaffney removed his cigar, waited a few moments and answered in a voice that was almost inaudible to the most sensitive ear: "It is the easiest thing in the world for strangers to start up a sensation in any town. If a locai real state man should hold a parade such as those men have, people would think; him crazy. Don't you know they would. What would the people say if they saw John Gaffney or "Bill" Schlegel heading a procession through Exchange place? Every man, woman and child would go into hysterics at the thought of me, or anybody else whom they see every day, conducting a circus. Just think of it. You'd make a laughing stock of yourself and tho result would be that you'd either have to get out of town, or your friends would have a conservator over you be fore you knew what was the matter." With this he replaced his cigar, looked at the reporter and turned down the street his sides fairly shaking with laughter. The real humor of the thing did not consist in what he said, but rather in the droll manner in which it was brought out, and the more the reporter thought of it the more firmly he became convinced that when John W. Gaffney decided to become a con tractor he robbed the stage of material which the theatre going world could ill afford to lose. DOWN A RANIER CHASM. BuCKLEN'S ARNICA SAlvTJ.

Three serious acci dents have befallen climbers on Mount Kainler since the death of Professor McClure on Tuesday night. On Wednes day night at 9 o'clock another party of Mazama climbers left Gibraltar rock, at an elevation of about 10,000 feet, for Camp Mazama in Paradise valley be low. Two hours later, or precisely 24 hours after McClure fell, this party was lost in the same place. The trail here is very deceptive, and the climbers, benumbed with cold, start ed across Cowlitz glacier in a straight line for the campflres two miles below. Instead, they should have crossed the moraine of Cowlitz glacier, turned to the right and resumed the trail to the valley. Before they knew what had happened George Kogers and H. A. Ainslie of Portland, Or., T. M. C. A. members, had fallen over 40 feet Into a crevasse. As they had become sepa rated from the party, no one heard them fall. Both were rendered Insensible. Some time later Ainslie came to con sciousness and pulled himself up over the Icy walls to the surface. His hands were torn. Blood was flowing from a se vere wound on his head and freezing to his clothes. In this condition he crawl ed and walked to Camp Mazama, arriv ing at 1 a. m. Rogers was nearly stiff with cold and unconscious when rescued. A party ex tricated him six hours after his fall. He was slowly slipping downward when found and would have died In less than an hour. It required great exertion on the part of his companions to let one of their number down with ropes over the slippery walls and pull up Rogers and his rescuer, one after the other. Rogers was carried to camp. He is still uncon scious. Whether he will recover is un certain, but the physicians in the party think he has a chance. Cut Steps Witli Alpine Axes. This year the face of Mount Rainier, from Gibraltar rock to the summit, a distance of a mile, is one immense sheet Df ice, and for the entire distance climb ers have had to cut steps with Alpine axes and use life lines. Returning, climbers report that on Tuesday afternoon William Pierce of Pendleton, Or., who intended to accom pany the party of six, was prostrated and rendered temporarily insane by gazing down the precipices where, for thousands of feet, there are sheer per pendicular walls. His party left him behind in a safe place and picked him up on the return trip. His wild look on returning to camp showed plainly that his nervous system had been al most shattered. After being restored to a fairly normal condition he declared he would never again attempt moun tain climbing. On Monday afternoon Professor Brown of Leland Stanford university started out, contrary to the advice ot friends, to make the ascent alone. He was lost during a storm, and he fell down exhausted. A party of six rescu ers started up and found him more dead than alive. The ascent this year is more difficult than usual, because of the great quan tity of slippery ice. With proper pre cautions there need be no accidents. The accidents to McClure, Rogers and Ainslie, were due solely to their attempts to descend in the night instead of re maining at Camp Muir until morning. Nearly all climbers have suffered from the severe cold weather on the moun The first tragedy in the brief history of the Mazamas has occurred on the ice slopes of Mount Rainier. Professor Ed par McClure, who was killed by falling 300 feet on Tuesday last, was one of the most prominent mountaineers of the Pacific slope and a leader among the Mazamas. He had an article in the first number of the society's 'magazine last year on the elevation of Mount Adams, which he had determined at 12,401 feet. The society of mountain climbers call ed the Mazamas was organized on the summit of Mount Hood on July 19, 1894. The qualification for membership is the ascent of an acceptable snow capped peak. There Is a great deal of enthusi asm for mountain climbing on the Pa cific coast, and 192 persons climbed 11,225 feet to the-top of Mount Hood to attend their first meeting and enroll their names as members. In 1S95 several parties from the Maza mas were organized to ascend Mounts Baker, Ranier, Adams, Hood and Jef ferson. They made the ascents simul taneously, and the purpose was to es tablish communication, by heliotropiny, between all these peaks. The ascents were successful, but the other part of the programme was defeated by the dense smoke from burning forests. Mount Ranier rises from the sea level to a height of 14,450 feec. It is an al most symmetrical dome, surmounted by three small peaks. Above the elevation of 4,000 feet the mountain Is covered with perpetual snow, save where the rocky ribs project aad mark the bound aries of the glaciers. Well Known Detective Dead. New Haven, July 31. Sergeant Philip Reilly, a retired member of the New Haven police force and one of the best known detectives in Connecticut, died at his home. For over a quarter of a century Detective Reilly was on the force and was unusually successful in ferreting out criminals. He was strick en with paralysis, and death came shortly after. Authorities Suppressed the Xews. New York, July 31. It has been learn ed that James Schleren, 58 years of age, an inmate of the State Insane asylum, was drowned on Monday while bathing at Northport, N. Y. The accident was kept quiet by the authorities. He was in the water with a number of other patients, when he suddenly disap peared. Wood Alcohol Plants Shut Down, Bradford, Pa., July 31. Ninety-five per cent of the wood alcohol plants of the United States will shut down Aug. 1 for 30 days and may possibly remain closed for 60 days on account of an overproduction of wood alcohol and its products. In this section the shut down will have a rather serious effect. Mysteriously Missing. Middletown, N. Y., July 31. F. F. Sprague of Cross Forks, Pa., is missing. He went to Roscoe to visit relatives and started home a month ago. He sent a letter saying he would be home on a certain date. He has failed to appear as yet, and it is feared he Is a victim of foul play. BASE BALL NEWS. STATE LEAGUE GAMES, At Torrington: Ji. H. E.

" 'TIs Hallow Eve, dear Hallow Eve, the last that we shall eoe Around this cheerful hearthstone, beneath tbl brown rooftroe ; For with the dawn comes parting, and with the dawn comes, too. The Sborlff and tho Iron Law the Sheriff and his crew. Where now the pleasant flre-llgbt (lows, the autumn suu will shine; Where now the the unseen cricket chirps, the autumn breoze shall whine. And the nettle and the trailing weed will flount their barren bloom, Within thatdearold chamber my mother's dy. lng room. My mother I in whatever heaven though llv'st, redeemod and white. Be with us by this shattered hearth this miser able night. Old John. What could we do, my son and I? we lived to sweat and till, To know our souls were vaBsals ot a despot's vulgar will; From day to day, from hand to mouth, a weary time to lead. No right to reap the harT9st, though our thrift had sown the seed. ' Had we a voice In yonder clouds, the clouds should send us rain ; Or prayers to pierce the ektes, and then the Loll should yield us grain, But impotent for one and all, the seasons had their way, And on our Molds and on our herds, fell pitiless decay, What more? Oh, llxe a demon thing, beside our threshold stood The phantom ot erlction, hands and garments dyed In blood." q YOUNO JOHN. "Half true, the times wore mercllesp, but man was even worse ; The storms camo down with power to blight, and he with power to curse, Into the garden changed themoer I did it with these hands It glittered like a shield of Are amid the purple lands ; But as the gold stalk rose an9 drooped, I knew the agent's eye Beheld, with all the devil's greed, that fruitful Industry. He longed for our toll's heritage nor did he long In vatn My sweat restored his flaccid purse, and lit his languid brain ; For Immemorial debts were forged vague spoc ires of the past I yielded who wouli dream of law suc cumbed, and stood aghast." Kathleen. It breaks my heart to leave the place, 'twould crack a heart, of steel : Who now shall sit at night and sing bes'de tho spinning wheel. When the stars are bright above the hill, and the wind is In the pass. And the sparks leap hissing from the log, and the Ivy smites the glass? No gossip by the twilight well, no story by the hearth ; And no famtlllar voice to swell the gentle laugh of mirth. All will be gone, our root laid bare, our vory name forgot; This old house standing in the fields, a solitary blot. Sly mother, she will miss us In the silent, yel low eves, When we come no more beside her grave, thick heaped with fallen leaves. Old John. Where Is the use ot vain regrets? our destiny's decreed ; This is the code : the lord shall rule the sword less Berf shall bleed. Not always thus my father tried to turn the tide ot fate. He bore a piko full nine feet long in the wars ot ninety-eight; Gray-halted he was, yet I saw him swing six paces from the door. And justice sat and gibed his pangs, and the rufllan yeomen swore. They dragged mo straight betore his corps; I looked into his eyes. And then forevermore I tnew and marksd my enemies. Mj boy my girl this holy night I swear that, but for ye, I wlshrd to him. who heart my words, they also murdered me." The School Master.

Resistance u the bitter end Importunate you preach ; Does aotlon follow up the psalm? action, you You think God's half Illogical, what Is It that you want? The Powers to work a miracle, to sequellze bold cau't. Flvo millions prostrate In the dust drain fierce alUto.lon's cup; Five millions raise their hands and beg the stars to lift them up. The vast Intelligence above is merciful and kind. But then the same Intelligence Is not unwisely blind. yonNO JOHN. Look how vou rave give me a gun, plant me before the foe Give me a flag legitimate, and welcome weal or woe. Think you that I who face despair unflinching day and night Would prove a recreant when the ranks roll forward to the light? Costly my blood, costly my name, yet I would hav.ard all, And rerish mid the Battle plain, the battle cloud my pall ; But for tho curse that hangs above the Rebel as they tell, The fiend that chases him from eorth down to unfathomed hell; What say some priests of Caesar's right? 'Twere wiser to eubmlt Than break allegiance due, and risk perdition and tho pit. KATHLEEN. I hardly know wha 'tis you say; yonr words are wild and siange.

Ohl father, woe Is me. Often I'll dream and cry for them far out upon the sea. THE SOnooL Masteb. Humph sentiment! Now hark you John, wrong never can grow rlghtj A thousand years a ay pass, 'tis still the sin ot yostor-night. The Devil's first crime Is still a crime, else might he be forgiven, And shouts of ransomed Satans rend the over stooping levin That which was our's is still our own, no rob ber's gripe can bless The long results of perjured faith and stern unrighteousness ; Pity tie Priests for whom we fought should preach an adverse creed Yet did ttwy suitor as we do were we prepared to bleed, There's not among the tonsured host a single toDgue would pauoe.
