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.

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

A. P. Lathrop Finds Conditions Uni
formly Strong on Six Weeks' Inspec
tion Trip.
Aianson P. 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

In Value of Property When Bought by

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.

The assessors put the property In
the tax lists at $28 200. The board of
assessors is composed of three men,

Healthy hair must h.ve nourish
ment, or in time it will surely die and
fall ot.
The best hair nourisher, invigorator
and dressing known to science today
is Parisian Sage.
The Lee & Osgood Co. sells it and
guarantees it to cure dandruff, stop
falling hair or Itching of the scalp in
two weeks, or money back.
It is highly praised by thousands of
ladies because it is the only hair dress
ing that makes the hair soft, silky and
luxuriant. Parisian Sage is the only
hair treatment that reaches the roots
of the hair. It kills the germs, puts
new life into the roots, and brightens
up the hair. The price is only 5ftc

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. The loss, if total,
will be about $1,000.
"What I want," said the fretful
magnate, "is to find some way of for
getting my trouhlos." "That is very
easy," "yiFwered- Mr. Dustin Stax. "G.'t

weeks, and nothing the doctor pre
scribed did a bit of good, and we wera
beginning to think she would never re
cover. "At this time wo commenced to give
her Vinol, and the effect was marvel

progress, and when we told him, we
were iving her Vinol, he replied, 'It
is a fine remeily, keep it tip.' We did
so, and she recovered her health and

thought she could." J. W. Flasg,
