Cal vary Baptist Churches Watch night services were held In several churches on Thursday night at which there were many present, the weather being propitious for a large number to attend. At Christ Episcopal church at 11 o'clock the service openel. there beirr evening prayer, followed by a hymn by the vested choir, after which Rtv. Neilson Poe Carsy preached a short sermon, with lessons upon the final day of the old year and those of the opening days of the new. Rev. Mr. Carey took as his text Psalm xxxvi, 5, 6: Thy mercy, O Lord, reacheth unto the heavens; and thy faithfulness untc the clouds. Thy right eousness standeth like the strong mountains; thy Judgments are like the great deep, and said: The moments and hours of our lives take on color and meaning from their associations. Time and the course of the sun run their race steadily and indifferent to the changes and chances of mortal life. One day measured mathematically is like another, and one night as long as its feilow. But this is not true in the region of thought and feeling in which we really live. There are hours of pleasure, sorrow, monotonous peace and tranquillity, anniversaries of happi ness and hours of sad memory. In the galaxy of life there is one glory of the sun, one of the moon, and another of the stars, and so it is that according to the calendar it Is an arbitrary de struction that makes a difference be twen the last dying hours of the old year and the fii st dawning moments of the new. Onu represents to us the Irrevocable moments of the past, and the other stands as the representative of all the plans and hopes and Inten tions of the futura, fu'' of hope, cour age and promise. There Is probably no one here to whom this hour does not bring some regrets for days wast ed, mistakes, epportunties lost. But It is wrong to dwell on the past, it is fatal to a better future. Like St. Paul, we should turn our eyes and thoughts towards the coming year. Our God is not a god of the dad, but the living, and the future is alive to each one of us with great and splendid possibilities. God Is still with us.

Most of those in my collection have been bought in old piles o trash at country auctions. The books I have gathered together In this way thowwhat may be accomplished in years of careful sav ing and selection." The catalogue is. of 85 pages and contains 931 Items, represents not less than 2.000 separate volumes and pamphlets, all relating to American history. Besides these Mr. Kilbourn states that he has probably two or thrse thousajsi pamphlets not catalogued. mt of which relate to Connecticut. Tolland. Rev. and Mrs. R. M. French and children are the gueats of reia-tlvM la AlidOUtown. Sermon by Rev. Mr. Carey This hour should be one full of deep and steadfast joy. We go forward noi alone, but wita a friend and guide cioaa at hand, a God of mercy and right equsness, faithfulness and Justice. God Is merciful and will not let us be tempted beyond what wc can endure. His righteousness stands like the strong mountains. His judgment judges not by those surface tests by which our eves too often are blinded: It reaches to the very bottom of man's heart. Who shall ba afraid when he knows that his life and future are in the hands of sucii a God as this. Who can doubt that the coming year shall be a happy one, when its days and events are directed and controlled by one whose love and power are lim itless as the sky and strong as the rocks and hills. Trial and sorrow shall have no power upon - the soul who walks with God. Let us take heart and courage, my friends, as the mid nignt hour sounds and the new year begins for you and me. May it be a year for us of genuine deeper love for G-od and righteousness, and filled with kindly words and deeds to one anoth er, of firmer belief In the mercy and faithfulness and 'righteousness and judgment of your God and mir-iv As the watchwords of the year to come, !Te gave to them those strong words of one who served and trusted In God: Thou will keen him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee. because he trustcth in three. Trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength. Following the sermon there was a hymn, the service closing at 12.0 o'clock with the recessional.

Lathrop, vice president of tne American Light & Traction Co.. who has just returned from a tour of inspection of that company's proper ties, talked hopefully of the situation, says the Wall Street Journal. "During my trip, lasting about six weeks," said Mr. Lathrop, "I inspected our properties in Detroit, Grand Rap ids, Madison, Milwaukee, Jlusk'fcoa. St. Joseph, St. Paul, San Antonio anj elsewhere with the view of learning at first hand prospects and needs of the individual companies. It was very gratifying to find conditions as uni formly strong as they are. The west did not suffer from the panic to the same degree as the east; and, as a banker In St. Paul said, had the coun try banke-s not read the papers de scribing the unsettled conditions in the east, it is doubtful if thfre would have been any disturbance whatever in the west. Financially, the west has grown to a degree little realized, and it is be coming more and more independent of New 1 ork. Take tt. Paul, for exam ple. When we first be;ame interested in our property in that city, nine years ago, tha t iree largest banks had de posits of about S3. 000, 000 to $3,500,000 each. Knw they have about JlO.OiiO. 00O to $12,000,000 each. This is rep resentative of many other centers in the west." Asked whether any considerable con struction work was contemplated by the compfny, Mr. Lathrop replied: "Only routine work and a few small extensions are necessary. Our proper ties have ben well maintained and nothing extraordinary is required. No large construction work Is contemplat ed. Earnings of all our properties are very satisfactory. They generally show Increases over last year, and the out look Is for continued improvement." Mr. Lathrop is a son of Mrs. Jabez Lathrop of Washington street. LODGE SUES.

Reynolds and Michael J. Reynolds. Ellen M. Reynolds is row wife of J. E. Clyne and Annie E. Reynolds is wife of Thomas F. Ken ney. BIG INCREASE In Value of Property When Bought by City of Waterbury. A peculiar situation is revealed in a study of the relative values placed on the property of Emerson M. Hotch kiss on Cedar street, Waterbury, which was taken by the city for park pur poses and for which the superior court recently awarded him damages of $53, 000, says the Waterbury Republican. Mr. Hotchkiss asked $75,000. The assessors put the property In the tax lists at $28 200. The board of assessors is composed of three men, Martin J. McEvoy, William E. Beecher and Timothy J. Carmody. Tha board of assessment, when it awarded darn- 'ages to Mr. Hotchkiss, gave him $35,- uuit, or zd per cent, more than the as sessors valued it. The bureau of as sessment is also composed of three men, Alderman Louts E. Fitzsimons, Alderman John F. Gallagher and Jacob Musler. The superior court, when Mr. Hotchkiss aprealed. gave him dam ages of $53,000.. nearly twice as much as the assessors had: him taxed for. . .

(8) the party was returning to this city when the fire occurred. About half a mile below Wilton sta tion something happened to one of the tires of the machine and the car was stopped. Mr. Butler found that it wo'ild be necessary to jack up tha car and remove the tire, and t lie jack had just been placed beneath the axle when there was! a burst of flames from be neath the car. Mr. I'.uetler and his companions made an effort to beat out the fire, but the b'aze, fed by gasoline, grew so hot that they were driven away from the machine. Mr. Butler's face was scorched and his eyebrows h-inged. The flames spread to the wood en buly of the car in a few moments. It was impossible out there on a coun try road to procure anything to Merit tho fire with successfully and little iDulil be d ne but remove from the machine whatever could be reached and then stand by and watch the destruc tion of the car. When the 'fire burned itself out only the metal parts were left. How nu'ar useless are engine and portions of the running- prar will have to be determined by machinists, but it is believed that there will be little sal vage. Mr. But'er came to Danbury by train and renorted the Pre to Mr. Rraunies. He said that the fire apparently start ed from a leak in the piping beneath the body of the car.
