WATEEBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, FRIDAY DECEMBER 17, 1897.
The Giving of Gifts Should be preceded by a judicious and appropriate selection; the taste of the recipient always being carefully con sidered. Almost everyone is delighted at receiving some token or other. Yet, there are gifts -which are very in appropriate, such as boxes of cigars to a young lady, or a necklace to a young gentleman, with a request that he must wear it; or a kit or mackerel to some one that never eats fish, or five pounds of tea that isn't fit to drink, or ten pounds of coffe that is anything but palatable.

The stores about town, are now In holiday nttire and present quite a cheerful appearance, especially in the night time, when ' the glare of the electric lights seems to show off the work of the artists to better advantage than natural light.

A window attraction which is receiv ing a good deal of attention is on ex hibition at Robert 'MoG path's store, on Baat iMain street.

Thomas F. Devine, principal of the Bank street school, delivered an ad dress last night before the Men's Guild of the First church. His subject was "A Sixth Century Ulysses," and he handled it with rare skill. Mr Devine kept the well authenticated narrative of the visit to the new world of St Brendan, the Irish voyager, in the sixth century constantly before his au dience, saying among other things: "The nations of western Europe- had the firmest belief in the existence of Brendan's land. The famous Nurem berg globe, made by Martin Behaim in 1492, just before the discovery of Amer ica has the "Land of St Brendan" mid way between Europe and Japan.

It Kept fUive the spirit of maritime adventure in the west of Europe. THE SACHSE TRIAL. Mlddletcwn, Dec 17. In marked contrast with yesterday's develop ments in the trial of Herman Sachse for the murder of Burton L. Hotchkisa, to-day's doings were very ordinary. Five witnesses weTe heard up to the noon hour for recess, and their testi mony was unimportant. MURDERED A CHILD. Kansas City, Dec 17. William Clay was hanged at the Clay county court house in Liberty this morning. Clay murdered the three years' old child of his first wife. He tied the hands and feet of the little one and threw It into the Missouri river. - NEARING THE END. Bonai's Fate Will Be Decided Before Many Hours. Bridgeport, Dec 17. The closing scenes in the drama of the death or freedom and confinement were enacted to-dny in the Fairfield county superior court, when the trial of Charles A. Bonnay, on a charge alleging the first degree murder of George Marcus Nich ols, proceeded towards the end. Bonay admitted that he, with Weeks, robbed Farmer Nichols and was pres ent at the killing. He averred, how ever, that Weeks, not he, did the Shoot ing. His cross examination by Mr Fessenden, however, proved his Wa terloo and he was caught in lie after lie. For the first time he broke down and admitted his perjury,, but he could not retrieve himself. His lawyer made heroic efforts to set his client right, but at every step he was met by the peo ples' prosecutor and the defense's own witnesses often proved to be boom erangs. ' The rebuttal of the state was remarkable in that it swept away the prisoner's props almost at will. The taking of evidence closed yesterday, and to-day the lawyers are making the arguments and this afternoon Judge Elmer is delivering his charge. Galen A. Carter' opened for the state this morning and he was followed by Jeremiah Toomey for the defense. Mr Lynch, the prisoner's mainstay, argued iext and the redoubtable "Sam" Fes senden closed. GRAND OPENING TO MORIltiW. The Driggs & Smith Co Will Open Their New Music Store. , Perhaps no music establishment in the state can botfet of better quarters than those now occupied by the Driggs & Smith Co. They are now pleasantly located in their new home in the Ma sonic temple, and they feel proud of that home. They occupy the whole of the ground floor, taking in the two stores, with a floor space of 4,000 feet. They carry one of the largest stocks of pianos and all classes of musical goods. Arranged around the spacious floor are over forty pianos, all of the popular makes. Among these are in cluded the Knabe, . Decker Brothers, Haines Brothers, Newby & Evans, and others. The store presents an un usually attractive - appearance and should be the musical center of the city. In writing up the success of such a business, it is only fair to state that it Is in a' great measure due to the care ful management of Jacob Kaiser. Al though but a boy when he first entered the firm, he has grown up with the business and by careful and diligent work, he has established one of the leading interests of the city. The opening of this music emporium will take place to-morrow and the fol lowing excellent programme has been arranged, to which the public are cor dially invited: Piano recital by Angelo DeProsse of New York, assisted by C.
