To-day, Philip Hassel. who con duels a barber shop at 788 Bank street, found a letter on the walk, addressed to a resident of Milford, Conn, which the owner can have by calling at his place of business. It Is hard to know what to do in such cases, you can't tell whether a person lost it on the way homo from town, after deciding not to mail it, or dropped it while on the way to get a postage stamp. Those are tho days of big (dead) pigs and as usual the Brooklyn, district is at the head of the list. To-day, one weighing 500 pounds was stretched on a couple of barrels outside tho market of L. P. & A. M. Guilfoile, and was an object of much attention. It was born and reared on Town Plot and made things pretty lively for half a dozen men before it closed its eyea for ever on the scenes where it spent so many cheerful hours. George Lachance, the famous base ball player wielded the knife, and he did the work in a manner which prompted all to declare that there is a fortune in store for him in this business after he becomes too old to make good time around the diamond. When the hog was "dressed," some one said it would take a man of great strength to hoist it on his back, and to the great astonishment of all, La chance picked it up and threw it on his shoulder with the same ease that a huntsman handles a squirrel. The feat led to a wager between Martin Dun phy and Mr Lachance as to which could lift the bigger load, and both being a,ble to pick up the porker, the question could not be decided at that time, and now a committee consisting of Ambrose Guilfoile is scouring the town to find a pig weighing enough to test the mus cular powers of these two modern Her cules. It was intended to hold a monster Lithuanian meeting in Grand Army hall, yesterday afternoon, for the. pur pose of renewing the trouble in St Jo seph's parish, but it was evident that some who were expected to be on hand decided to remain at home, so that the number present was far from what was counted upon and all were not opposed to the pastor, either. There was some The Royal Is ttio highest grade baking powder known. Actual tests show it goes one third further than any other brand. I Absolutely Pure ROYAL RAKING PCWHEIt CO., NEW YORK.

JONES, MORGAN & CO. fiery speechmaking, in the course of which Father Zebrls was charged with paying so much attention to secular work that the spiritual needs of the parish were being overlooked. ,The opposition denied this and contended that Father Zebris had been doing splendid work in Waterbuy until a few people, some of whom rarely ever at tended1 church and pay nothing towards its maintenance commenced to belie him and by persistent efforts in this direction stirred up a feeling among the people that threatens to dis rupt the parish. A committee was appointed to call upon Father Zebrls and request his attendance at the meeting, but the pastor declined the invitation and also refused to have the parish books taken there. This did not have a tendency to calm the tur bulent elements and . committee was appointed to wait on the bishop and state that it was the sense of the meet ing that they desired the removal of Father Zebris. The committee is as follows: (Matthew Rogers, Joseph Warcziulis and Charles Masziatas. It is said that some of those who are doing most of the talking are not Catholics at aill and others have old scores of one kind or another to settle with the pastor. Many think that the most effectual way to settle it would be to leave them without a priest at all, if they cannot get along with the one they have, and let those who -care to attend church go to St Patrick's. There's a lot of fellows at the bottom of this thing who will not give in un less they have their own way, and if mob rule is to prevail in the church, it would be better to have no such place for that class of people. Probably the most logical solution of the question would be to have the Lithuanians, attend church with other naXionalities where they would be obliged to behave themselves or re main at home. Those kickers are a shame to the rest of the community, Oatnolics and Protestants, all of whom manage to get along with their pastors in a christian way. Not to Oppose German Occupation. LONDON, Dec. 13. The Berlin corre spondent of The Daily Mall says he hears that Great Britain agrees not to oppose Germany's occupation of Klao Chau in return for Germany's promise not to Interfere in the Egyptian ques tion. - According to a dispatch from Shanghai to the same paper, the Ger mans are extending the area of occupa tion at Klao Chau and now control 400 square miles. They have arranged a German administration and are already collecting duties. The Tsung II Yemen, says the dispatch, has appointed a prince to negotiate a settlement with the Germans. Wagre Q ne t Ion In Fall RlTer. FALL RIVER, Mass., Dec. 13. Near ly all the ministers of the Fall River churches referred yesterday to the threatened cutdown of the mill hands' wages. The question of a similar cut In the salaries of superintendents and treasurers, which is oi greatest Interest to the employees, also was spoken of, and one pastor, the Rev. William Knight of the Central Congregational rhureh, offered to reduce his own salary 10 per cent if a similar reduction would be agreed to by the mill officials.

On Monday evening the grand, realistic war drama entitled "Maine and Georgia," will be presented. The company Is much larger than when seen here last.

Francis Wilson in "Half a King" at Poll's next Wednesday evening Is al ready assured of the largest audience, ever gathered to witness a theatrical production in Waterbury. Every seat will be occupied, and the manage- manif nrlll linHiMiht&Hlv hio,ra .fill standing room on the opening night. The few seats that remain unsold are being gobbled up and persons who wait until the opening night before purchasing will in all probability have to be contented with standing room. The probable presence of the Second Regiment band from New Haven to give a concert between the acts and i : ii . . - -. . uciuib tue curtain goes up, aaua anotn er feature of interest to the opening evening which will have its tendency to increase the gathering In attend ance, j : Richard Mansfield. , The sale of seats for the Richard Mansfield engagement at Poll's began this morning at the Etore o? the Water- uury urug company, on .asc main street, and they were being bought in. during the morning at a rate to indi cate that prosperity has already struck the new theater. ' Two charts' v being used, one for the -matinee and the other for the evening perform ance, and both were being marked up in a way to suggest hurry on the - part of any who are desirous of seeing Mr -Mansfield. As has 'been announced al ready, Mr Mansfield will play "Beau Brummel" in the afternoon, and "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" in the evening. Prices will be smaller even than the very reasonable ones fixed for the Wil son engagement, running from $1 to 25 cents for the matinee, and $1.50 to 25 cents for the evening. The theater goers of our city will undoubtedly, therefore, turn out in force to see this greatest of all versatile actors, and it goes without saying that the Mansfield engagement will fully equal in point of success the brilliant one that is now assured for Francis Wilson. FIRST SUNDAY NIGHT AT POLI'S. Father O'Donnell's Lecture and Stere opticon Views of Ireland. The first Sunday ' evening's pro gramme at Poll's new theater, Decem ber 19, is pretty sure to set a high standard for future sacred entertain ments. The historic hills and valleys of the Emerald Isle will be portrayed In two hundred views from the latest paintings and photographs. Father O'Donnell is to conduct the "Tour Through the Emerald Is-le." The rev erend lecturer is methodical in all his works, but .that method is by no means suggestive of the formality that dis quiets, but rather of the sHidied fa miliarity so foreign to a rambling talk, yet so attractive in a discourse ele gantly descriptive even to the "degree of word painting." The method re fered to will appear In the itinerary. Starting from New York, the ocean steamer with its different departments will be illustrated and, landing In Queenstown, the tourist will be fur nished with a jaunting car as gorgeous and aristocratic as the one that re cently shook the pavements of Water bury. From this point of vantage the tourist will get an accurate view of the Emerald Isle, else he will be one cf the class that travels with closed eyes. The jaunting car will take a northerly course along the western coast, dis closing the beauteous scenes of Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Clare, Galway and Donegal. Back by the eastern coast the tourist will revel in the old historic meiries of Antrim, Armagh, Down and Meath, while Dublin, Queen's county, Wicklow, Wexford, Kilkenny and Waterford will smooth the way back to Queenstown for the' staunch old side car bearing back the tourist with his wealth of historic lore. Who can discourse the Irish airs like the Irishman himself? All the lips that lisp the harmonious numbers of the programme have not been kissed by the balmy air of the fair isle, but enough of 1t. spirit has come o them through the warm f'.ow of aucestrjl love to bring to life or.ee more the dis tant murmurings of 'The Meeting of Waters," the plaintive yearnings or "Tara's Harp," the buoyant hopeful ness of "The Minstrel Boy," the charmed persuasiveness of "Believe Me," and the ever calm snd restful whisperings of "Killarney." The first Sunday evening at Poll's new theater will be Irish of the Irish, and its dedi cation complete when its waIIs re sound to the eloquent portrayal of "Ireland's Saints and Pages" and the strains of her bards and minstrels.
