SUBSERVIENCY. The state of Connecticut never de manded that Piatt or Hawley should lie- subservient to the administration; ut now the people are being assured )hat Ebenezer J. Hill will be if he is Jhose.n to succeed Senator Brandegee. Is this what the people of Connectl jut would demand? No wonder the Hartford Times In quires if Congressman JI ill thinks that foy making a Punch and Judy show ft himself now, his chances will be Improved for a place in the contest of I91ir The senators from Connecticut are usually in harmony with the admin istration; and they are likely to be; but not at the cost of having no con clusions of their own, and no cournge to question the conclusions which they re asked to make ctYective in law. W dire that the senators from Con necticut shall be what Piatt and Ilaw Jey were and what Bulkeley is! But we are really asked to send a senator expressed through ami labeled "Taft's tam." mnd the fact that he Is publicly wHlins to stand for that sort of thing is the one reason why he should not fee accorded the honor he seeks. Senator Brandegee is not that sort wt a man. and eastern Connecticut Eels proud of him because he Is not. e would be greater in defeat than s opponent could be'ln victory under ,ich circumstances as these. Senator Brandegee is not going to 1be defeated. Chairman Kenealy knows the field, and his predictions have proven so true in the past that the papers which now scout them have commended them for their dependa bility they are Just as dependable to day as ever. The Hartford Times ! right when It says: "Becauae Senator Brandegee will not do this (be subservient), and because the maublleans of the state do not Intend to put In his place a man whose subserviency la advertised over and over again as his chief qualification, the senator's prospects of a renomina tlon by a two to on vote in the re publican legislative eaucua are as grood today as they always have been, and Will so continue until he is renomi nated." fJO VACANCY. Those citizens who were so disturb ed because there was to be a vacancy In the congressional delegation of Con necticut, appear to be still more dis turbed to find that there is not" going to be a vacancy Congressman Lilley will save the state $30,000 In eight weeks by preventing: a special election is he lg capable of being congress man and governor for so short a peri od. This Is tha way cf a strict bus'ness nan who looka out for tha people's Interests, and It is said to have been auggested as well as approved by Gov ernor Woodruff. Thla is what a despatch says: "Former Governor Woodruff of Con necticut Jt said to be responsible for rutting- the idea into Lllley's head. When ha proposed to resign as con gressman, Woodruff Is quoted as hav ing; said: "What's the uso? It's only eight weeks before the new congressman, Major John Q. Tllron, will be sworn in. Keep the office till then." "All right," Mlley replied; "I guess I will." There may be a few ambitious peo ple who may eonsrientionsly think that thlR is wrong In fact, that it is a shockingly had precedent, but the people are Inclined to look upon It as the governors do, as a wise and easy method of saving $:;o,000.' Those who aro inquiring how George 1 Lilley can be In Connecticut and Washington at the same time should calm their nerves, for If he is needed at Washington he can be spared and if he in not he can attend to the af fairs of Connecticut. MUNICIPAL AMBITIONS. Tt always costs large sums of money tu carry Into effect municipal ambi tiona. Our neightbor at the mouth of the Thames is now right where the citi zens of Norwich were in the 60's when they decided to have a building wor thy tha city and a county seat. It was estimated at the time that the municipal idea aouid be carried into effect for $40,000, of which the county of New London was to pay half, but when the scheme had matured It was found that it would take $arin,nof to jfive eclat to the enterprise and as the county would not do any more Nor wich Just Increased her sum from $20,000 to $330,000 and put up a building which is still the finest and best equipped municipal building east of the Connecticut river. In fact, it is doubtful If there are a half-dozpn as well equipped municipal buildings In the state as the Norwich court house and city hail. Now New London, with an appropri ation of $50,000 by the county and $100,000 of its own, finds that it can not begin to erect the building which is needed there. It will, without doubt, take a quar ter of a million, or even more, to build a municipal building which shall be fully equipped with fireproof vaults and calculated to meet the require ments of the city of New London for a half century. Norwich found its municipal build ing inadequate at the end of 36 years, and is now making needed additions which may suffice for many years to come. New London is hesitating and care fully reconsidering the problems, and If she carries out her ambitions she will have to do pust what Norwich did when It increased its appropriation 36 1-2 times and drove ahead. Norwich would, like to see New Lon loa realize iU ambitions, and pcr It may. New London is consid ug the question and her spirit Is . do the job right, or else to alt for a more propitious time. The hypothetical question in tiie Jiains case required an hour and twenty-six minutes f,r its reading. The interrogation . point must have wondered what it was all about! The administration or a state can fee no stronger than the appointments that sre made. Governor Lilley may fee judged by this. CONGRESS AGAINST ROOSEVELT. The last days of Roosevelt will not be dull days, as some of the last days of retiring presidepts in the past have been made by an opposing congress. Harrison and Cleveland did not fight, but Roosevelt will, and the likelihood is that he will kill big game before he leaves the White house. Ho has already brought to public view a grafting senator through the action of the men in the secret serv ice, showing how these detectives have been used in the interest of the government and the people and what they have discovered, and this leaves congress where it must cither openly protect its own unworthy members or else support the president, and an interested country is watching to see what is going to be done. A Boston paper says. "In the com pleteness with which President Roose velt's congressional influence is now broken it must be a source of incon solable grief to his opponents that so many of the great measures which had stood for a generation dwarf-like and dumb before the power of special interests in the senate should in the days of his power and prestige have been actually written on the statute books from which they can never be removed. The pure-food law would be laughed out of the senate today, as it had been sidetracked for the twenty-seven years of its considera tion before Roosevelt, but no amount of hilarity will secure its repeal to day. It is only one of a long list of legislative accomplishments of the Roosevelt administration, which are where his detractors cannot get at them. It Is of some historic signifl cance, however, that the man in Au gusta to whom all eyes are now turn ing, owes a peculiar and fully recog nized loyalty to Mr. Roosevelt, and of that Mr. Taft has always been insist ent. One would almost think from the hilarity heard in some quarters that the 'unpledged delegates' of a year ago had nominated the man at Chicago who has since been elected by nn overwhelming majority." METROPOLITAN RENTS. The price of New York rents is nev er really- understood by residents elsenhere because they exceed the full salaries paid for skilled, labor in other parts of the country. Now there comes to light the most extraordinary lease ever made in that great city. A rent al of eighteen dollars' a year for the space covered by a cigar box is the new record just established in that city of high rental values. In other words, the holder of this remarkable lease will pay thirty-six dollars a square foot annually for a space five feet square or about the size of a din ing room table. The total rent which will be paid for this comparatively niinule area is $900 every twelve months. The space, which is proba bly the most expensive in the world, will be used as a cigar stand in one of the new office buildings which will house some 6.000 workers. But even with this population, figuring an aver age profit of two cents on each cigar, it will be necessary for each square half-foot to be occupied by 1,800 ci gars or boxes before any profit can be figured on. In other words, the whole stand will have to sell 10.625 boxes of cigars, or more than 2n0,000 single smokes annually before It be gins to pay. These cigars, laid end to end, would reach nearly sixteen miles, or considerably farther than from the Battery to the Harlem river. On account of the limited space this cigar stand will be unique in more ways than one, since it will have a most Ingenious arrangement of sliding doors. Once Inside the proprietor will have to stay there, since his means of ingress and egress will be occupied during business hours by the goods which he will sell. .Space is gold in the business sec tlon of New York eitv. EDITORIAL NOTES. It looks now as if at least six of t he Tennessee night-riders had ridden to the devil. Happy thought for today: The whey to long life is not the way to righteousness. The fact that eg?s and diamonds have begun to fall again carries joy to the heart of the people. The ponds and rivers of Maine are announced to be too low to make a protracted cold spell welcome. The fellow who looks "forward not backward" in these days is very likely to be struck by an automobile. Public utilities commissions are all the rage now, and the governors of live states are all asking for them. When Roosevelt and congress get to the end of the game the people will have no trouble in seeing who is It. The minority in every' contest of late years has become notorious for making the most noise on the finish. New York Is said to be trying to be a noiseless city, but there is no pros pect that it will succeed right away. President Roosevelt is not afraid of canned goods. He Is going to take them into the heart of Africa with him. With a peaceful government spend ing over twice as much for war as ft doeR for education, it is not strange that civilization looks slow. It is Just as fashionable for the governors to commend economy as it is for a live woman to commend an up date hat, whatever the size. Since Tillman has enjoyed the repu tation of being one of the most honest men in congress, his relation to the Oregon land cases is all the more sur prising. Since Jlessina does not do this sort of thing but once in twenfy-five cen turies, the property men are holding conferences with a view of rebuilding the city. The question which has arisen now is "Whether the house secret service committee has the power to send Roosevelt to the Ananias club?" They think they have. .sure. Rhode Island has made its $10,000 pax able to King A'ictor Kmmanuel, and it will be properly applied for the sufferers j,T;n as it would have been through the Red Cross. A American girl was so Im pressed l.y the beauty of the produc tion of a sculptor that she hunted up the model and married him. It would itot l.e so bad if American heiresses would insist always upon marrying models. "Shakeneare ain't so bad." declared the bibulous citizen. "Ton like his plays, dr. jo"" "Yes; lots of acts to go out between." Pittsburg; Poit. C Woman in Life and in the Kitchen. V -J CONCERNING WOMEN. In Iceland men and women are in every respect political equals. The na tion, which numbers about- 70.000 people, is governed by representatives elected by men and1 women. Lady Truscott, wife of 4he present lord mayor of London, is a handsome woman, with two beautiful daughters, and these ladies of the mansion house, as the official residence is called, will no doubt carry out the well known traditions of the place. Lady Trus cott having already much experience as a charming hostess. The following are the measurements of the American and Knglish Venuses. Ray Bev?ride and Maude Odell: Miss Beveridge Height 5 feet 6 1-4 indies, bust 37 inches, hips 39 1-2 inches, waist 23 inches, neck 13 Inches. Miss Odell Height 5 feet 8 inches, bust 40 Inches, hips 42 Inches, waist 24 inches, neck 12 1-2 inches. Mrs. Julia Golds-.ler of Bayonne. N. J., wants women police, and the com mon council of the town allowed- her to come before them and plead for her petticoated guardians of the peace. They, however, informed her that they only had 13 minutes to listen to her presentation of the sub ject, which was not encouraging. NEEDLEWORK SUGGESTIONS. Sofa pillow design for child's pillow, to be transferred to linen, denim, art ticking or heavy muslin. 18x18 inches square, and embroidered in outline stitch with Helios cotton, the edges finished with a heavy cotton or silk cord and tassels to match. Design for baby's bib of forget-me-nots, to be transferred to linen, lawn, Indian-head cotton, muslin, or damask, the edges embroidered in buttonhole stitch and the flowers worked in French or outline stitch. HEALTH AND BEAUTY. Chocolate, though nourishing, often causes dyspepsia when the digestion is weak. Sleep wJl be slow in coming if the sick person is allowed to have com pany just before bedtime or listens to exciting reading. The proper method for making sage tea is to take a handful of sage, crush it and boil it for three hours in an old iron pot. When it boils down add more, water, and' there should be one pint of water after the tea has boiled. Cook a handful of tea. not chemically colored, add the Juice to the sage tea and a teaspoon of com mon salt. Boil both until there is a pint of liquid. It does not color the hair, and being a powerful astringent, is beneficial for falling brown or black ha i r. Steaming Is not recommended for delicate skins. A better method of cleaning is provided oy the applica tion of alternate hot and cold cloths. This treatment should continue for ten minutes. Never use on the face a wash rag which is not scalded each day. It Is said that If persons are so deaf that they cannot hear even loud conversation their hearing will be far more acute if they hold to their ear a long mailing tube. Thiis has been tested, and said to b" very good, even though somewhat Inconvenient for use. At least it Is inexpensive and well worth the afflicted making a trlai test of the mailing tube virtues. Old-Fashioned Jewels Newest Fad. Thls'Ts a fr?ak season for jewels. Quaint, old-fashioned rings have been as popular as the old-fashioned pendant earrings, which have been generally worn, though they seem to add years to the most youthful face. These pendant earrings gradually grew until they 'reached an extreme length of five Inches, a woman of so ciety appearing in the Metropolitan opera house at one of the first per formances, a few weeks ago, with earrings from London of this ridicu lous measurement. Now the craz; for fancy Jewelry has taken the form of tassel earrings. These are seen usually as seed pearls in tassels that drop an inch or two from the ears. Thev are even more barbaric In ef fect than the pendant pearls and dia monds, and also tend to rob the wear er of the appearance of youth. They have nothing to commend them in an artistic way. and they doubtless are a passing fad. New Use for Soap. A reader states that ordinary yel low soap can be used with as good re sults for moridinir torn articles as gum tissue. ' Wet the piece of yellow soap, run it over the torn place on the wrong side and press with a moderately hot Iron. ' Some Hints About Ham. If when boiling ham you add for each gallon of water a teacup of fine srar and six or eitht cloves the flavjr wil be much improved. Always let a ham cool in the water in which it is boiled, and it will keep deliriously moist and nice. Another Use for Bricks. Cse a (lean brick to stand the Iron on when ironing instead of the usual ironing stand. It has no boles under neath to admit the air and the irons will retain their heat much longer. Airing Dining Room. After each mea! there should be an other thorough airing of the lower floor. No nvitier how perfect the sys tem of ventillation. it is impossible tci prevent cooking odors. This airing is doubly necessary shoujd there be smokers In the Jjntily. Use for Old Linen. It a wise to keep every scrap of old linen in a special drawer or box, for use in emergencies. It will belneeded Borne day for bandaging up an injury. To Remove Iron Rust. Iron rust can be removed with salt mixed; with a little lemon juice. For Cleaning Matting. Straw matting should never be washed in anything- but warm water and salt. Cartridge Paper for Pota. Instead of crepe .paper, cartridge paper makes a serviceable and at tractive cover for the plain flower pot. The paper after being cut may be held into shape by the brass, fasten ers which come for such purpose. Add Pretty Effect. Olives, salted nuts, glace and crys tillized fruits in small silver or cut glass dishes placed at regular Inter vals around the centerpiece add great ly to the decorative effect of the table. Remover of Stains. Either kerosene or benzine is ex cellent for removing; stains from zinc. Cord for 'Shades. The life tf a window shade is per ceptibly lengthened by adding the ring and curtain cord. Then, when the shade is moved up and down, one takes hold of the cord rather than the curtain itself. This not only saves the telltale marks on the material, but there 1g no dan ger from tearing. Gold Thread for Lace. The simplest ' lace may be made strikingly attractive by outlining the design In gold thread. Plain Valen ciennes, itself quite inexpensive, treat ed in this fashion will enrich any dressy costume. Ink for Gloves. A person who freshens her black kid gloves successfully says 'that she uses a few drops of good black ink in some olive oil; this she applies to the roughened or worn spots and places the gloves in the sun to dry. Clean Black Silk. Black silk may be cleaned by spong. ing the dirty parts with the water in which potatoes have been boiled. To Keep Cabbage Fresh. Frequently one uses but half a cab bage. To keep the remainder fresh, wrap in some of the loose leaves and then In damp paper. Put in a cool place and it will keep fresh and crisp for many- days. To Clean Tan Shoe. Did you know that your tan shoes can be easily and quickly cleaned by rubbing them over thoroughly with a woolen rag wet with turpentine? First see that all the dust Is removed from the shoes. Trim Lamp Wicks. If the lamp wick moves up and down with difficulty, a simple remedy is to pull out a few threads at either side of the wick. Hatpins Come in Seta. Hatpins nuy now be found in cases containing a set usually five is the number. Cards Shorter but Wider. While the size of a woman's calling cards varies by actual measurement but little from that of years ago. the cards are now a trifle shorter and- Just a fraction of an Inch wider. The ef fect Is to make a card almost square. Baking Pie Crust. When buking crust for lemon, cus tard, or other one-crust pie, turn pie tin upside down, mold crust neatly up on the outside end bake. At tha Doll Hospital. Nearly all the department stores now have doll hospitals, where the decrepit dolly may undergo a surgical operation and be made as good as new. Hallmark of Neatness. Nothing more quickly marks the re finement of the voung girl than the care she takes of her toilet articles, especially her comb and brush. If these are kept scrupulously clean by frequent washings, it is the hallmark of neatness. Mending of Plaids. Try several shades of rink together in one needle wjhen fending' plaida or checks, using colors to harmonize with the predominating tones of the ma terial. The mended part scarcely will show after It Is neatly pressed. Metal Danglers for Sash. Many a fancy old-time buckle Is be ing called into play to fasten the dl reetorie sash at the back. The ends of the sash, too, are often finished with danglers of metal. Russia Calf Shoes Stylish. Shoes of Russia calf are stylish, They border on the golden browns. The olive tinge Is quite out of favor. Pine Bookcases. Bookcases are made of plain pine wood and stained to -harmonise with the furnishings of the room. If the amateur cabinet maker does pyrogaphy she makes a simple con ventionalized design on the ends, and stains it a different color. Sometimes she cuts out a colored figure from a magazine cover, pastes it on, and shellacs over the whole piece, so that it appears to be painted into the wood. How to Save Lemons. If, when using lemon for flavoring, you need only half a one, put the other half on a plate and cover with a glass tumbler. This excludes the air and prevents it from drying up or getting moldy. Watch Back Hair. Never arrange 'your hair without a hand glass. Remember that the sld and back view of a coiffure Is as in portant as the front. Carry Drinking Cup. When traveling do not fail to put a cup in your bag. Many a person has suffered from using the drinking cup which is pub lic property on me tram. Folding paper cups may be had for a small sum. They can be thrown away at the journey s end. They have the strong point In their ravor or not taking up much space. Paint Rusty Wire. People who 'have wire clothes lines which have become rusted may cover them with newspapers temporarily wnen naning clothes. As soon as the opportunity is afford ed apply two coats of gray paint. Eyelets for Bags. Kyeleta in the Wallachiuii embroil t-ry done on crash in a contrasting shade Ol silk make a simple but effect ive pattern for fancy bags. Oatmeal a Cosmetic. A perfumed oatmeal water is good for the complexion, and this anj' wore an can make at home. it needs only a bowl of boiliiis water and a tablespoon of powdered oat meal. Let the oatmeal steep and strain through a bit of linen cloth, aftr which, with a drop of perfume, th water is ready. ' It will have a whitish appearance. Grooming is an Art. Beauty of grooming, correct poisa and ability to make the best of one' good points count far more than a beautiful face. Any woman with a passable face may be attractive and even be con sidered beautiful if she will cultivate the art of being well groomed. . Tea as a Hair Curler. A solution that sometimes will aid the hair In curling is half a pint of strong tea, dissolving in it eleven grains of carbonate of potash. The hair is wet with this while dressing, la 14 in waves and held so while drying Borax as Bleacher. Pulverise a teaspoonful of borax, put it in yonr last rinsing water, and your clothes will come out white- in stead of yellow. HOME GARMENT MAKING.

Mr. Editor: In The Bulletin this time four vears. as per the files, I voiced the opinion of citizens of the better class in Hartford, of which I know a few, and hear from many, that not one cltv. one block, one business snouia have both United States senators from Connecticut. By the logic of votes (which the wise call Praagmatism), and I hope by the logic ot conscience, and judgment. Oovernor Bulkeley aft erwards came to the same conviction. By two from one spot the state did not ret fairness, nor could it get strength. With one from the great capitalistic eantial. another might well be wnere the deep-sea sailors land from every crime; like Jeffries. Connecticut s-tanns more four square to all comers with legs well braced apart. In that contention gainst the mega lomania of a few in Hartford, but for it best interests, most of us had no favorite candidate. As I stood in the lobby, a mere public-spirited citizen, I remember now the voting wavered as We watched how the veering1 flaw did DIOW The smoke now 2Torth now South. Then would been a. psychologic mo ment for Mr. Hill and his friends to have discovered his great abilities and to have put him Into the running. By a leader. Inside, I am assured he could have had the track. Perhaps against the capital of the capitalistic Interests of the cap ital, they would have had to put up too much effort and too much money. It Is sometimes harder to scratch than to snatch when some other hen has scratched up the worm. I have Just received a circular, "Why Congresman E. J. Hill should represent Connecticut in the U. S. senate. Pre sumably the circular had Congressman Hill's imprimatur. The outside print is of a size to appeal to a grocery clerk nnd so Is the grammar and style of the inside. As I read Representative Hill's picture, his capable of representing one-fifth of Connecticut's interests In the house, to wit. the mercantile, bank ing and business interests. There are a great many other interests which it seems to me he does not represent. I should be sorry to see our finer, broad er, long-distance Interests unrepresent ed in the senate. It te these in which we are more likely to be unrepresent ed. Wbile Senator Bulkeley is there for banking, mercantile and business interests, I do not see' the need of Sen ator Hill. If Mr. Hill will come sauare out and say that Senator Brandegee wastes his time on cards, social pleas ures good living and' good livers, and le inattentive to business, we will hear him. If we are presented with two pictures. "Before Taking," and "After Taking." I do not havo any decided preference for IJlley. who has got busy, over Brandefee, who has kept still. (I voted for Lilley delegates and the straight ticket at election. 1 TVhen it took Frank Brown and Stiles Judson. those expert swimmers', to pull out Lil ley from skating on new ice. I don't suppose it encouraged Brandegee to try making a bender. 'WTitle the char iot of Isrart and the horsemen thereof have picked ui i,niey. it rouidn't he expected to t,lck up two in the same gubernatorial term.

That Brandegee ami Bulkeley have not been willing to put Connecticut wagea'on or near Filipino wages gets my commendation, if not ail the cler gymen's. We are to lead: we must be fed. The clergymen are not ready to take salaries on a Filipino basis. They could not buy their books. That Brandegee did not help select Taft is the most measly call down that I have heard yet. Where ore we at, if the three branches of government are not to be kept distinct; If every senator 1s to be an echo of a corning or a retiring president? On tha v.-hole, it looks to me as If fhls getting Mr. Hill into the running was a pulling of Mr. Hill's leg. as to political influence, if not aa to money, and as if the whole business was a re turn match of those who got beaten, as they ought to have been, when the plan of a few to have Hartford the seat of empire was knocked out by the elec tion of Brandegee. LOVELX. KALI iriddletown,.Conn., Jan. 8, 1309. A Successful Administration. Knowing Mr. Lilley's admirable rec ord of the past as a business man, and as a legislator, and his eminent ability, and, above all. his honesty of purpose to help his fellow citizens a man who is above netty politics we feel sure that Connecticut is going to have, un der his direction, the most successful administration she has ever had in her history.
