It is going to be an accurate ac ceujit of the entire celebration gather' d by a competent icholar from relia- kle sources and no pains are to be spared in making it the finest book ver printed about the city and town ef Norwich. ,; - It wyi contain the cream of an the sermons and addresses delivered, the names of all committees, and also the names of hundreds of people who took part in the ceremonies, with portraits. and street scenes and views of the parade and the historical play the very best pictures which The Bulletin can procure. It Is expected that .this ook will have 400 pages, with f 0 pages of ap propriate ' portraits and pictures.- . "- It Is to be sold for 12, bound in cloth, and for 13, bound in leather. There has been - received orders for about 150. '.The Bulletin ; would Jike to make an edition of 1,000, but unless there is a quickened demand the edi tion is likely to be cut down to 600 'copies. ' ' The Jubilee book of 1859 was rtot to be had leBi than J6 or 17 a copy when wanted this year. This book 'will be at a premium in he future. The Bulletin is planning to have It ready for delivery about the 1st of December.. Those who desire a copy should send their order to Tha Busi ness Manager of The Bulletin, Nor wich, Conn. HELD KIP IN THE HOUSE. - '..The house' has very properly held up senate bill No. 2St, which provided that the governor should appoint a lawyer at a. salary of $50 as.week and office expenses, for discovery and ex posing citizens who have' been helped as paupers when they have real estate r a bank account. The New Haven .Leader, commenting upen this bill, ays: , "The payment to the state in case such discovery is made 1s at the ratg; of $2.60 a week for the whole time that such person; pauper or indigent person has received state support. "Recovery irhay be made in a civil action, brought : In tbs , name of . the mtatm - ' ' r "In the senate ' it waa claimed that such an official would save the state lot of money, probably $20,000 a year. ; , - - ; , "In recent years the total expendi ture for. state paupers has been 'less than je.DOO ayear." - It is pointed out thatthis bill Is a place-maker, or, in other words, it spells graft. The attorney general is supposed to look after the legal busi ness ef the state, and is willing and feady to look after such cases' as this. ; The Leader is correct when it de clares that the "bill, which has been sent back o the judiciary committee, should stay there. , .,"..'.. A BOSTON CRITICISE. '; The decision of the supreme court of Connecticut which pronounces the federal employers' liability act as be ing unconstitutional is exciting more than ordinary interest in all parts of the country! - The Boston Record, la reviewing the decision, in the cases of Hoxie and Mondou, says: . -? 'The ruling of the Connecticut su preme court on the federal employers' liability act is a strange compound. It flrst asserts practical absence of juris diction, and then enforces Jurisdiction long enough to pronounce the act un constitutional. Chief Justice Baldwin frules that it was not within the power f congress to compel jurisdiction tin ier the act in the state courts. This logically would deny any actual de- Hsion in the case of Hoxie and Men Sou, two ferakemen who -sued the Kfw Haven railroad for damages received trhile at work. Why the court did not jtop here is not made clear.. The at lorney general,, who has intervened a kionth ago, will doubtless appeal -to jhe United. States supreme court." This decision is interpreted as an Amission that a state employers' lia bility act could be made which would e constitutional and - proper. It A'ould also be a just law If properly trained for all soncerned. IIRTH OF A UNIVERSAL LAN- GUAGE. The birth of a universal language It lot an everyday affair, and although tome of these newly Invented lah tuages have started off promisingly snough- In the past half-century, not ne of them can yet be said to have s clea field. There is rivalry and Jealousy and bad language 'passing BOw between the Esperantists and the ftozas, who .are In fierce- competition for the lead, while the old Volapukers, who antedate both, -look on In quiet ness and peace and enjoy the conflict The Ro is the society paper of the Ro tas, and following is a lucid explana tion of style of their new - language from its columns: i "The word - 'orosa' will mean the work of the Roza, and the verb 'arosa' will mean to hold a session or carry on the work of the society. The word ruroza' signifies a member of the so ciety, and "hlroza or 'horosa' a male or female member of the society. The question 1 wo dtT arozar means 'At what place are the session of the ftoza held?" The answer may be, 'Hatispl (I hear) uto tojl Rosa (that the next session of the Rosa) nato (will not be) iyuqdue (In the same place) uteji (as the last) uyl (because) ruza (the membership) ateticl (has in creased) luce (to such an extent) utetl hoii agya (that they havs; been compelled) aqku (to remove) i deel (to a larger) du (place).'" :. ; The special cause of friction between uro jaaraed societies may &J found in the following disclosure made by a leader, who writes to the Ro: "Enclosed you will find one year's (subscription to Ro from Rev. George 8. Gassner, -2127 ' Bainbridge :' street; Mrs..' Mary H. Lee, 4022 Green street, and. Miss Alice P.

The new seawall built at such a great ex pense Btood the fury of the wind lash ed sea and turned -the water back into the gulf. , The people of the country have-not yet forgotten that In 1900 Gapxston was swept by a flood which cost ,00S lives and $17,000,000 worth of property. Soon after, Galveston be gan its seawall, and completed the work in 1904. . The great structure Is over1 22000 feer long, 17 feet high and M feet wide at the base. Built of olid concrete, made of Texas granite and cement,, and weighing 40,000 lbs. to each-lineal foot, its power of resist ance as a breakwater can be readily understood, This is a wonderful piece of engi neering and the wisdom of those who planned, and carried out the work is now apparent . Galveston is to be con gratulated upon its judgment, its .en terprise and its triumph. DOESN'T NEED THE MONEY. The friends, and they are numerous, of forme Gov. George P.

Norwich Bulletin. Ordinarily, The Bulletin does not at tempt to correct items floating about to its credit which were never print ed in its columns Tbis is one which concerns . the private wealth of ex Governor McLean, and his ability to live "out of politics . upon his private tortune, and something we know nothing about. The Bulletin doesn't know anything whatever about Mr. McLean's wealth, but Kdoes recognize his fitness for public office. Ex Gov ernor McLean's windfalls are none of The Bulletin's business. j HALF THE TRUST RATES. The' Newark News declares that there Is -not the least doubt that mu nicipalities could build and operate' ice plants, and furnish ice to consumers at less than half the trust . rates, and favors the establishment of municipal Ice plants in all the cities of the state. . It cites the action of the Asbury Park 'hotel keepers as an example. Acting as an association they have in quired Into the cost of building and maintaining an Ice plant capable of supplying them with all the ice tbey need. They find that a plant capable of yielding fifty tons of ice per ' day can be run so as to make the cost of Ice only $2 per ton. The charge for ice to them by the trust is less than to the private . consumer, who is charged $14 a ton. If these facts are correct, the margin tor profit certainly indicates no risk on the part of those who would enter- the business. Seven hundred per cent, is a most Inviting spectacle to capital seeking invest ment, and the wonder is that private individuals do not rush for the op portunity where municipal authorities have to be urged. . ,.

"There Is nothing about the college education of a woman that prevents her from discussing the styles with any woman of style who cares to talk of anything from dresses to millinerw or from tucks to hatpins. Agreeable small talk Is always more enjoyable than heavy scientific or scholarly pa laver, to the ablest as well as tha least of these. One was heard to say re cently to another woman; "I see there Is a new fad in hatpins and it amuses me. . Fifty years ago my grandmother made hatpins of sealing wax and darn ing needles and those red-headed con veniences were highly prized by those who had them. Grandmother's pins Ere now written down as novelties." Our grandmothers were noble women.

Those dear old dames knew that life was real and that life was earnest V i During th celebration of the 250th anniversary of the founding of Norwich I noticed in the window of a feeding place "Sandwitches sold Here!" Ordi narily this might have been accepted as reform spelling, but as it is still without the approval of the reform spelling board we shall have -to wait for that Those were not the "witches" .which so disturbed the mind and con sciences of New England a century and a half ago the cast of the speller was not the spell they cast. I did not feel so shocked by this misspelled word, for it did smack of "antient" times there did seem to be a fitness about what so many would regard as a misfit. "On kas" would not have known the differ ence, and there is no evidence that John Mason or even the Rev. Mr. Fitch would have been repulsed by such a little flaw as this where the "witches" were of the edible and satisfying va riety. What is there in a name, any wayT ' .- Every now calling teems to bring out new phrases: It is not so strange that we should have to go to Massachusetts to learn how to order lunch cart beans. As an order plain beans do not make an attractive sound; but when a hun gry soul enters a night lunch cart and says "1,000 on a plate," everybody takes notice. There is something broad and beaming about that order, and it only' meant a plate of beans. But pork and beans is too popular and cheap a refreshment to let escape with just one style of verbal embroidery, for some restaurateurs recognize it as "a sheet of muslo and the instrument" or as "a brass band with the leader." You see pork and beans In speech can be made to masquerade in a style that would not be unbecoming even at the Waldorf-Astoria. Speech- is wonderful in the mouth of a master and disguises atf pleasing when they are pat " - No ordinary woman could have writ ten such a thing as this: "Above all things beware of tidying a man's per sonal belongings, and more especially his papers, though the dust be inches thick. Man is an untidy animal, ac cording to woman's Ideas, but there is method in iis madness and order in the chaos of articles that litter his tables. Leave his belongings in a heap as he has left them, and he will be able to place his hand at once upon any single article he requires. Tidy him up and he is lost." This is not learned in the school or the college, but is a chunk of wisdom which is the fruit of personal experience, rare per ception and god sense. It Is not ev ery woman who can see this chasm in sexual life and bridge it. There is mastery in such a conclusion as this. It wins appreciation and bless ings from the "untidy animal" whose den is what it is. I have heard a wo man say that "the den of a man was the devil's auction room," and ifcan not be denied that it looks it;, and it is not surprising that mail's disorderly order is the annoyance of many a good wife. - . I saw an artist admiring a recent sunset, hat in hand, with his head bared; and I was not surprised that in the presence of such brilliancy, the work of the Master Artist, he uncov ered. He may Just- have been letting the winds fan his perspiring brow, for I am not always able to divine what prompts a man to take off his hat; yet, I could perceive that in the presence of such beauty as was pre sented at the close of that day that the finite soul might feel prompted to make obeisance to the Oversoul. The man who thinks aright cannot help at times feeling the kinship which exists between himself and his Maker. The magic of a sunset is something art can recognize but cannot . master. Its. changing colors make the greatest and 'most beautiful moving picture ever presented to the eyes of man. It can not be hung upon a wall, but it can lighten the heart of the observing man for years. What do you suppose would haooen If a . whole family should make a re solve to each do a deed of kindness ever day? Nothing awful could hap pen in consequence of it, of course. Kindness does not beget meanness, neither does it beget disappointment, although half the world mav think it does. The mother of disappointments is .expectation always was, and al ways will be. But we do not wake up every morning to do the kindly deed, but to look out for the conflicting in terests of daily life. That is what the world is at and when the pelf is counted up at night the world is not particular as to whether it is partly made up of tainted -money or .whether the attainment of the pile hat tainted it HnUllness instead of being made a- main object is usually made inci dental to something else. At an aim in life it really" has its merits, but who would think it had from observation? .Two quarreling sparrows are alwavs two senseless birds. Perhaps this might be said for a truth of two wrangling human beings; but they never get so concentrated with fierceness that they otherwise Imperil their lives. Two quarreling English sparrows came down into the dahlia patch recentlv near me; and my" little bulldog-ran out and put his foot on one and held him down; at command he took his foot off the sparrow, but the bird's con fusion was so great that he could not fly for a minute. Had a cat been near she would have made a meal off those two foolish' birds. The dog did not regard the bird he held as anything more than a curiosity. He did not at tempt to take it in his mouth and showed no sign of an appetite for game. This English sparrow had quit an adventure and is correct if he thinks he had a narrow escape.

"Then I'll go up with you, my daddy cap'n. We can stand any wind that blows, can't we? How I'd. bate jto be a landlubber!" r , The girl " had scarcely placed her hand on the rail of the walk around the light when she turned to the keep er, and in the teeth of the stiff wind managed to say; "Look over there, daddy; isn't that a boat, and a row boat, too? Gime me your, glass, quick." ' , ',' . - "Steady, May; we don't. want to be keeled over too easy." . , "Yes, but a woman's aboard, and I can't see another soul. I must take the Spray and go to her. - Can't you whistle for Sam?"' t ' "Sam's away, and I must stand by here; If he'd only come!" . ' "Well, he Isn't hereaud I am, so not another word, daddy; I'm ' no scarecrow, and you -wouldn't own me, dearie, if I were!" The girl flew down stairs, and in an incredibly short time Captain Bearse watched the sailboat dance over the waves. " As the Spray dreaw nearer the fragile row boat, : May shouted: "ait perfectly still and try noCo be frightened, tor I'll take care or you." At that moment another skiff shot from the distance, while the girl dex terously brought the Spray close to the side' of the smaller craft." 'Tm coming, May," a strong voice called; "hold her close to the wind." The salt spray was in their faces a long whistle from Sam was more ex pressive than words. "Oh," exclaimed May, "I wanted to do it all myself, Sam. Why didn't you let me?" But it was no time for '.'back answers"; just as the tiny figure of an old lady was lifted into the girl's boat the lightning flashed and thun der roared. "George, Bhe's all in," said Sam; "you manage your' boat May, and I'll tow the other." ' "There, now", the man's 7: voice sounded strangely tender, as he wrap ped his reefer about the frail shoul ders, "you're safe; but what in time did you venture out here for in such a craft?" . "Don't ' bother her with questions; wait until we get her home."' The eyes of the little lady were fastened upon the girl's face; her hands trem bled as she held hep silk kerchief more closely. As they rounded the Point. Captain Bearse stood ready to lift their bur den into the living room of the light house. Soon a cup of coffee was made which May gave to the woman as gently as if feeding a sick . child; a wrapper was brought and, as the girl opened- the kerchief, a piece of ex quisite lace fell to the floor. "Wby, why," gasped May, "that Is exactly like some lace I have." "Like this? And where did you buy it? But pardon, slgnorlna, will you of the Savior's: "Physician, heal thy self," has broad significance when properly interpreted and applied. A touchy, finicky reformer is always showing the need of personal improve ment Now, any reformer who needs reforming cannot make a deep impres sion upon those he seeks to reform. A self-tackier is a man who is working as he prays, and by his improvement showing the efficacy of piety and pray er. The world needs a lot of this work. Ten good : You go and ask a praying man "how many trespassers he has forgiven to day?" and he is likoly to consider you an eligible candidate for the Brews ter's Neck asylum, although he that' very morning asked his Lord "to for give him as he forgives those who tres pass against him." Don't you see that we are a lot of dolts. We do real seri ous things from habit rather than con viction and that is what is the matter with ourselves and with the world. Do not conduct yourself as if you felt that the discussion of the faults of others is a virtue. You have known people to whom this habit seemed to be a real joy. They become so keen to the errors of their friends and neighbors that they become blind to their own faults: Tbey, of course, confess to the Lord that they are poor unworthy sinners, but when a brother remarks: "I've always thought that of you," they want to knock him down; This in effect is very much like at tempting to palm bonds bff on one's Heavenly Father that one knows to be counterfeit. We not only all have troubles enough of our own, but faults enough to maintain a' debating society. There was nev-r a Inore dependable fact than this: "The more reason you put into religion tho more religion you will give men." The good man who is stuck on himself makes Satan smile.

RELIGION We are In the midst of the period w-hich, to a great and increasing ex tent every year is set apart for rest Lfirearly everyone gets a little time off nair a aay, if no more, ana theoreti cally at least, humanity wiU be con- siderably rested by the 1st of Septem ber. So 'oft we see them go, tired men and women, to the' shore, the mountains and the country. But will they really come home rested?. , A hearty believer in such outlngt and wishing that '. for hard 'workers throughout the year they could be made longer, I suggest another recu perative agency in addition to ocean breezes, mountain climbing and resting under the shadow of leafy trees. , Re ligion, when rightly understood, is a rest-bringing affair. It carries with it an immense amount of quieting and soothing. ' For what Is It that tireg people? Why are so many people, when Satur day night comes around, so completely spent? Is it work, responsbility that wearies? Yes, but not those things alone. The monotony of labor Is what wearies us. We tire of the same old task from morn to eve. What has re ligion to say about it? That God has ordained it for us, that it is vastly better than idleness, that by doing your work patiently, cheerfully and well, wte are true soldiers of civiliza tion, contributing" something to the wealth of the world and the ongoing of civilization. If we once gA this splendid idea wrought into our very beings we can possess a certain rest fulness of spirit even when we are tending the machine and measuring off dry goods. . . - . Another great source of weariness In the modern world is imitation of oth ers. We are tired at the end of the week because we have had a breath less Vhase since Monday morning to keep up with our neighbors in point of dress, display, possessions. . But re ligion speaks plainly concerning a kind of life in which raiment and food are subordinate factors, which has sufficient resources of another charac ter to make us relatively Indifferent to the pace which our neighbors take in society and in their home life. The unoertatnty that shreudt tomor row is another source, of wearinett. We want to be a little more sure than we ere concerning, our bread and butter. We would pietce through the mysteri ous veil that separates the present from the future and find out what is in tore for us.

When May. placed the liquor to her lips the color came back Into the worn face. With a great effort she con trolled herself and said, "I want to tell you, sir, why I am so trembling about and nervous. That little word about the lace will you not show it to me? I do love pretty laces!" "Yes, yes," the girl answered sooth ingly, and slipping Into an adjoining room she soon returned with a tiny garment which she laid in the old lady's hand. - "See! do you not see? This is my own pattern.- My- fingers made it Yes, I sewed It on myself! Oh, the dear little bambino!- But wait please don't say a word until I tell you my story if this strange feeling in my head will only be quiet!

The captain did not love, my country and one day he snatched the baby from me. I . was about crasy after that but I turned to lace making, earned money, and sailed for the states. I taught lace making, but tne morning I found all my precious laces stolen. My heart was broken again. The doc tors told me I must never use my eyes over those fine patterns again, but I worked just one short strip like my bambino's, and I always wear it close to my heart I was poor and I drift ed to the country farm at Sea View. My name, 'Marita Monaldi.' is written in the book. This afternoon the wa ter looked so calm I took the little boat Now, will you tell me who this girl is?" . The captain brought a chest from the secretary in the corner; took from It a statement of Capt Hermann Baker written two day before his vessel was wrecked. His money was left for bis daughter,- Marita Monaldi Baker, in the. care of the bank at "My name? Oh, I am not crazy, am I?" a wild voice interrupted the keep er. . "I haven't touched one cent of that money since I rescued that child that night In May, but you've had all you needed. May. haven't you?? Tears ran down the captain's cheeks. "You've spoiled me, daddy, but here's another that'll help you I She shall never leave us, for she's our sal vage, isn't she, and Sam must go over to Sea View so they needn't look for her.

' - ance from Him who bids us come unto Him and find rest that we are of more value than all the birds tbat . sing blithely in the branches, and that He who cares for the sparrow will surely care for us. We have no business to let the weight of this mystery and un certainty weigh us completely down when religion offers us a rational and reliable way of relief.- Still another wearytng element In the life of some of us who have waked up to the needs of our fellow men, is the immense amount of social unrest in every land. Turkey has been seeth ing with revolution. The placidity of life in China and Japan and India has been ruffled never again to relapse in to its former calm. In this country thousands of persons are set against the present order. If we tried to carry-on our hearts all this unrest we could not stagger through a single week and even the concern we do feel wearies us. But here again the relig ion of Jesus puts 'its tranquilising touch upon our disturbed social and industrial life, and by exalting the. way of justice and lop e points out the only path to permanent peace. - Just try religion, tired people, and sle if it does not really quiet and re Invigorate you.
