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.

Lofty Mountain Peak Claims Two
More Victims.
Tacoma, July 31. 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.

" '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.
Wind eloquent the Work of Death move
swifter rtay by day,
You pester Reaven with Idle oaths, and thsa,
what then? you pray.
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.
And o'er my brain ar.di heart there broods the
presence of a cbice.
Ah I for tne dear old banishod time the dance
beside the road,
rheteounle windmill whirling In thesunset rich
and broad,
Tho merry Journeys to the fairs the windings
through the sheavos,
The twenty larks that sung like one above our
summer eaves;
St. John's night, and the bonfire, the shadows
in the sky, ' ,
The mountains to the east and west all laming
bright and high,
What laud shall give thom back to us. 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.
To bless our Rebel flag and pray a triumph to
our cause
HE CONCLUDES.
Go forth the task Is bitter, sad but then like
men go forth,
Qo preach tho gospel of our cause. In deeds,
throughout the earth ;
Inspire our blood whore 'or It be with a holy
sense 01 biuus.
Around the Mistress of our Shame, the banded
races throng
I see them come to the roll of drum, and an-
tuoms of defiance:
Not In vain wnrclr, but flushing swords, repose
their reliance.
From strand to strand, from land to land, from
myriad climes and regions.
Onward they press, audwho may guess the vast-
ncss ot their legions? j
I see the fall c f the capltol ot the Harlot of the
Nations.
And swift uprise to tho quaking skies, the dongs
of the Gene a Ions.
There In the front, full In the brunt of the bat
tle's broadest lightning,
Emeiald and gold, our banner's folds In the
topmost tempest's brightening
Think ail prepare, the murky air is full of lhe
revelation ;
Think and prepare, the Urs look fair for the
rise ot a burled nation.
