MUGATBCLCOLMB. THE CHURCHES WERE WELL ATTENDED YESTERDAY. (The Fair "Will Close To-Morrbw Even ing The Hall Will Not Be Opened This Evening Several Games of ' Football Saturday. People who live over the hill are very much pleased with the new ser pentine walks that have been put down, between the school and Fairview avenue. The Rev T. Carson Hanna, who hac Conducted the service at the mission chapel, preached in Philadelphia yes terday. He expects to be back to take charge of the meeting to-night. He Is a very earnest worker and has made jnany friends at the City. There is hardly a doubt but what L. D. Warner, manager of the Malleable works at Union City, will be re elected president of the T. M. C. A. of this place to-night and it is very doubtful if a better man for the place could be found, or one that would prove more satisfactory to the entire mem bership. It is also very doubtful if there is much change in any of the other elective officers. The committees are appointed by the president. The tax lists are .supposed to be all in and the assessors can now go to work on the examination of the same It they find any who have failed to put in their lists the law authorizes them to make up the same and after so doing add ten per cent It is unfortunate that Judge Hungerf ord, who is one of the assessors, should be laid up sick," but It Is to be hoped that he may soon re cover and assist in making the valua tions to get the list ready by Decem- tier 20, according to section 25 of the amended charter, which reads: "The Assessors of said borough shall an nually, before the 20th day of Decem ber, make out a correct assessment list of all real and personal estate of the inhabitants thereof liable to set in the list by assessors ot towns, and shall assess all property at its true and just market value, and not its value at a fixed or auction sale, and also the polls of the residents therein, which shall be set in the list at flOO each On the completion of assessment the assessors shall sign and deposit with the bor ough clerk, who shall forthwith give notice thereof by publication in some newspaper published in said borough At the end of fifteen days, after tne borough clerk receives the lists from the assessors, he must turn the same over to the board of relief, who shall give notice of the time and place of meeting at least ten days before the date of said meeting, they having for their work until the 23rd day of Feb ruary, when the lists must be per fected and returned to the borough clerk." The bazaar will not be open this evening as it i8 a holyday in the Cath olic church. It will open and positively close to-morrow evening, when the different articles will be drawn and the voting announced. "A Breezy Time" at Jacques to- night and the "Wizard of the Nile" on Wednesday night," will draw well from this place. The funeral of Mrs James Reilly will take place Wednesday morning with services at St Francis church. Football seemed to be in order with our boys on Saturday, the juniors go ing to Derby to play some boys there. The choir boys of St John's church in Waterbury came down to play the choir boys of St Michael's, the latter winning by a score of 14 to 12 An eleven from Tale came up in the afternoon and made our boys work very hard to keep ' the Yale men from getting over 10, while Naugatuek was not able to score. It was said to be a very good game. Dr Johnson and family spent Sunday wtih the doctor's relatives in Ansonia, Mr and Mrs John Peterson sailed on a steamer from New York Saturday for Florida. , Frederick Schaffer is spending a few days home from school at Worcester academy. A seven year old boy of Conrad Holm on Ward street, is one of the late cases of diphtheria reported. The remains of Robert Wooding of Platts Mills were buried from the Par ish house yesterday. A large delegation from Goodwill lodge, K. of P. are expected to visit Gavel lodge to-night. A banquet will follow the degree work. Mr and Mrs Alvord paid a visit to relatives here over Sunday, Mrs Al- ford being the daughter of L. D. War ner. There was two arrests on. Saturday night, Charles and John Johnson being brought in for intoxication and breach of the peace They furnished bonds for their appearance, but failed to show up this morning. Inhere was also two ar rests last night, ratrick uoyian ana James Donahue, for obstructing walk nrt intoxication. Their cases were continued for thirty days. Several other cases were continued for thirty days. There was a large attendance at the 5:30 mass this morning at bt irancis church. FOOLS UNCLE SAM. How the Heathen Chinee Works the Government.

Heap big1 joke on Melican. man Ha, ha, ha," Wan Poon, second-rate politician and man-about-Ohinatown, held his sides audi guffawed uproari.ously. Come rigih down to it, this pig-tailed Rainey of the Celestial quarters had) a right to ha-ha. Woree, all of Ohina- town is with much difficulty-suppressing its mirth over a new Lodfee, by which Uncle Sam is being played ior a "good thing." When a heathen gets tired of this coun try audi waruts to returm to his na tive flowery kingdom oowadaystie does not have to bother (bis barber ed head about a gcrub etalce, passage prk or any th ing else in the way of expense. He is sent home by this government and that's where the Joke on- Unci Sam comes it. "When congress passed', a law requir ing all Chinese res!

Now, it is this very state of affairs that gives the "heathen Chinee" the op portunity to exhibit the superiority of his cunning and ingenuity.

A Pleasant, Simple, but Safe and -Ef fectual Cure For It. Catarrh of the stomach has long been considered the next thing to in curable. The usual symptoms are a full or bloating sensation after eating, accompanied sometimes with sour or watery risings, a formation of gases, causing pressure on the heart and lungs and difficult breathing; head aches, fickle appetite, nervousness and a general played out, languid feeling. There is often a foul taste in the mouth, coated tongue and if the in terior of the stomach could be seen it would show a slimy, inflamed condi tion. The cure for this common and ob stinate trouble is found in a treat ment which causes the food to be readily, thoroughly digested before it has time to ferment and irritate the delicate mucous surfaces of the stom ach. To secure a prompt and healthy digestion is the one necessary thing to do and when normal digestion is se cured the catarrhal condition will have disappeared. According to Dr Harlanson the safest and best treatment is to use after each meal a tablet composed of diastase, aseptic pepsin, a little Nux. golden seal and fruit acids. These tablets can now be found at all drug stores under the name of Stuart s dys pepsia tablets and not being a patent medicine can be used with perfect safety and assurance that healthy ap petite and thorough digestion will fol low their regular use after meals. iMr N. J. Booher, of 2,710 Dearborn street, Chicago, 111, writes: "Catarrh is a local condition resulting from a neg lected cold in the head, whereby the lining membrane of the nose becomes inflamed and the poisonous discharge therefrom passing bacward into the throat reaches the stomach, thus pro ducing catarrh of the stomach. Medi cal authorities prescribed for me for three years for catarrh of- stomach without cure, but to-day I am the hap piest of men after using only one box of Stuart s Dyspepsia Tablets. I can not find appropriate words to express my good feeling, i Have found flesh, appetite and sound rest from their use. Stuart s Dyspepsia Tablets is the safest preparation as well as the sim plest and most convenient remedy for any form of indigestion, catarrh of stomach, biliousness, sour stomach heartburn and bloating after meals. tiena ior nine dook, manea tree on stomach troubles, by addressing Stuart Co, Marsnaii, 'Mien. -The tablets can be found at all drug stores. OAKMLEJPIIIS DID NOT SANCTION AN ELECTRIC PLANT FOR OUR TOTN. People Did Not Seem to Appreciate the Efforts of local Men Party at Miss Porter's Halloween May Be Cele brated To-night Other New:' Items A surprise party was - given at Mr Dubois residence Saturday evening in honor of his daughter A pleasant evening was enjoyed The usual services were held yester day in both churches, and as the day was a model one a large number took advantage of the opportunity offered The last tribe of nomadic gypsies have returned to their southern haunts, where the bright sunshine converts everything into happiness Watertown and Oakville made the greatest mistake in their history when they failed to patronize the local com pany which was in process of forma tion. They were young men, honest, upright and worthy of our patronage, their offers were not overbearing or absurd. These young gentlemen, Hitchcock & Lewis, were in a position, to talk in a clear, understanding man ner upon contracts for electric light ing. Tour money stays in th town, builds an immense power plant, add to the enterprises of our place, stimulates business activity, confidence and pror gressiveness. But the people ridiculed the idea, cast the commendable efforts of the young men to one side and re fused them patronage. The scheme, as an inevitable consequence was given up. The Waterbury parties, ever anxious to make money, grasped the opportunity while the people were un decided. Once the lights are Inserted how much will the people have to pay? Why do we support a corporation lo cated in Waterbury when we might just as well contribute to the success and construction of an immense power plant here in our own town? Merchants, does your business pay you? Do the people know of your low prices and fresh assortment of goods? You might as well try to conduct a millinery store in a tunnel as to think the public can become aware of your prices without the aid of the press. It is not known whether Station Agent John B Weymour will build tenements upon his new building sites ir keep them for an investment, but as real estate never grows less in shadow, price or valuation, here one can read ily be assured that building lots will ever remain as a paying venture. Cen tral avenue will by another year, hold its own with any of our streets. It 1 sto be hoped that the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad Co will cause an electric light to be erect ed at the foot of the stairs leading down the embankment to the street near the depot. Nothing would meet the grat ification of the public more or prove of such benefit to the passengers on dark nights. Mrs Harry B. Russell sat up for the first time yesterday since her illness. She is now on the road to recovery. Paul Newell has resigned his posi tion with the Oakville Pin Co and has accepted a more lucrative one with the Waterbury Machine Co. Miss Jennie Porter held a halloween party last week at her residence on Poverty street where many guests from Waterbury and this place congregated, playing whist and other games. It has been . suggested that the name of Poverty street be changed to Pros perity avenue, as all residing in that otilclay are well off financially and otherwise. As the suggestion seems one worthy of consideration this paper will in the f ueure allude to this district as Prosperity avenue. The show windows to be erected in C. E. Warner's new store will be the ony ones in town. Mr Warner should be commended for his progressive spirit. "1 of 100" is the motto of the Y. P. S. C. E. Are you a member? If not, why? If you have a rent let the public know. Only a day or two ago we were approached by a man looking for one. The three-year-old boy of J. A. Johnson, of Lynn Center, ! Ill, is sub ject to attacks of croup. Mr Johnson says he is satisfied that the timely use of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, dur ing a severe attack, saved his liUle boy's life. He is in the drug business, a member of the firm of Johnson Brothers of that place, and they han dle a great many patent medicines for throat and lung diseases. He had all these to choose from, and skilled physicians ready to respond to his call, but selected this remedy for use in his own family at a time when his child's life was in danger, because he knew it to be superior to any other, p.nd fa mdus the country over for its cures of croup. Mr Johnson says this is the best selling cough medicine they han dle, and that it gives splendid satis faction in all cases. Sold by Apothe caries Hall Co, George M. Ladd, 854 South Main street.

Why Our Merchants Sell Cheaper Than Outsiders nMeeting of the Bank Directors Gunnery School Is Defeated by Taft's Services in the Various Churches Foresters Meet Westbury Park Greets the Public The Union Service Last Night. Thursday evening, Mrs H. N. Cun ningham will give a banquet in the parish rooms at Oakville to her Sun day school scholars, comprising the first and second classes. Mr Townsend of Yale, spent Sunday In town visiting friends. A representative of the "Evening Democrat" obtained a lengthy and in teresting interview with Frank P. Bryant, the local manager of the Wa tertown boot and shoe repository, this morning. Mr Bryant is a keen, busi ness man, having conducted the shoe business here successfully for a period of nine years. "I notice that you are getting all the prominent business men in your hustling paper," remarked the proprietor. "Yes," was the reply, "we make it our aim to have all rep resented before the public; who they are; what they are, and just why they are here. Do you consider advertising here in Watertown a paying invest ment?" "Well," said Mr Bryant, "my experience in this line has not been very extensive yet.' I consider that advertising never has or will do a man any injury." The writer agreed with him in this respect. "People state that you sell shoes at more reasonable prices at your store than in the large stores located in Waterbury. How do you account for this Mr Bryant? The gentleman went to his display window and brought to view a pair of very attractive winter tan shoes. "These we sell at $2.75, and in Water bury the price Is Invariably $3.50. Now we are enabled to do this for the sim ple reason that we have no immense expenses to contend with, no large store rent, or other large expenses. 'Small profits, quick sales,' our motto to-day, yesterday and to-morrow. For nine years we have given perfect sat isfaction and you may say through your paper that ourp ices may be men tioned before long and they will be such as to astonish the entire commu nity. We sell boys hip boots at $2.00, just the thing for winter; good, sub stantial men's boots, best made, $2.50. Our prices you see are very low, but the reason I have explained to you. Ladies patronize this store. We treat them courteously and keep only the first-class stock, shoes being from $2.00 up on hand Ladies' to ?2.75. Every pair warranted. Don't forget the Foresters' meeting this evening, as it is particularly im- portant. The new road, located on the route to the fair ground, will be entirely completed by to-morrow afternoon, and will be one of the most creditable pieces of workmanship yet seen in this locality. A top dressing of gravel is now being put on. E. C. Margraff spent Sunday with Prof Bonn of Waterbury. Saturday afternoon the Gunnery football eleven, of Washington, came to Watertown, strong in numbers and vociferous in their enthusiasm, con testing the team representing Taft's school. The game was called at 2 o'clock. Just as soon as the ball was put in motion, Taft's like a battering ram, made terrific holes in the lines for repeated gains. Gunnery seemed bewildered at the wild rushes and was utterly unable to stop the onslaught of their opponents. During the first half Smith of the Gunnery cracked a rib, which interfered materially with the progress of the game. Score at the finish was 42 to 0, the largest number of points made against any opponent on the field this year. Owing to the heavy wind White missed six goal kicks. A meeting of the bank directors was held this morning at 9 o'clock. Im portant business was transacted. The funeral of Mrs Sperry was held from her late residence last Saturday afternoon and was attended by a large number of mourning friends and rela tives. Rev Mr Pegrum conducted the services. The services in the Methodist church yesterday were especially interesting. The exercises in the morning were conducted by Rev C. B. Ford. At the close of the session Rev 'Mr Deming, of Middletown, secretary of the State S. S. union, made some very interesting remarks. In the evening a union ser vice was held in the church, and was addressed by Rev C. B. Foote, presi dent of the State S. S. union, aided by Mr Deming. Both gentlemen made powerful addresses, showing the needs of the union in carrying on this good work. A collection was taken for this object. Father O'Donnell preached in the St John's church, Bridgeport, yesterday a priest from Hartford filling the va cancy here and in Woodbury. JL Note the sttractive display eX the WATERTOWN P. E.
