Putaaai. 1321 An investigation has been made by Chief Howard L. Stanton of the stores of the city to ascertain if they have on sale a pyroxylin plastic candle stick which will flare up as the flame reach, es the end f the candle. It Is this flare that causes the damage. The investigation is the result of the fol lowing . notification received from the Xational Fire Protection association. There suddenlv appeared recently in most of the large department stores of uSTew York city candle sticks made of pyroxylin plastic. They seem to ' have been manufactured by a variety of novelty makers using material fur nished by various concerns making pyroxylin plastic under such names as "Celluloid," "Composition," "Ivortur, "Imitation Ivory" and "Domestic Iv ory." The New Tork Board of Fire Un derwriters and the New York fire de partment, acting in co-operation, Im mediately communicated with the re tail establishments, novelty factories and the manufacturers of pyroxylin plastic material, calling attention to the extraordinary hazard in using such inflammable material for candle sticks. Almost without exception, the extreme hazard was recognized by every one connected with the industry. Full co operation was given in the elimination of candle sticks made of this material from the counters of retail establish ments and the manufacturers agreed to cease further manufacture. Most of the candle sticks had a cup shaped metal cap placed in the top and used to receive the candle. It was argued by some that thtp would prevent the candle from igniting the pyroxylin.' It was found, however, that such was not the case, for when 1 the candles were lighted and allowed -to burn down, the candle stick ig nited arid burned with the customary violence. . 1 In view of the rapidity with which this business developed in New York city, it is suggested that members in other cities make an inquiry of de partment stores and other shops to determine whether or not candle sticks made of pyroxylin" are being offered for sale. In the investigation of the subject In New York it appeared that a number of manufacturers had or ders for delivery to places outside of New York city.

If Connecticut citizens "in the mili tary or naval service of the .United States, vote at the annual town elec tion the first Monday in October, they must vote their town polling places. There Is no statute now on the books providing for a . special election by men in the military service, and such a special election could only be pro vided by convening the general as sembly at an extra session and the passage of a law to that effect. There is probability of such action, however, according to a statement made by Governor Holcomb Saturday. The town elections are of minor im portance and it is not felt that the absence of those engaged in military duties will in any way effect the re sults. At the office of the secretary of the state It is said that there has been no demand from any source for special authority to take a vote among ttie military men at their respective stations. One year ago, at the time of the state and national elections,! a simi lar situation arose when the state troops were on the 'Mexican border. The legislature was convened in spe cial session, and authority provided to take the votes of the soldiers in the far southwest. Canvassers were . de lighted to - take the vote, but when election day arrived by far the greater part of the state troops had already, returned to their homes, and It was necessary to take the vote of compar atively few soldiers on the border. To call the legislature again for this purpose and take the votes of the soldiers at their stations would in volve an enormous expense to the. state, aria as there has been no call for such a measure and the town elec tion in October are of comparatively little importance, there -. has been no movement to provide for a special vote of the soldiers. " Many of the soldiers, indeed, will be on foreign soil at the time of the elections. However, if the war progresses un til the season' of the st.ite flections which occur the first Tuesday after the first Monday of November, 1918, political machinery will begin to move, it is said. These elections of state wide importance require every possi ble vote, and authorities say that measures will be taken to provide for the vote of the soldiers whether they be on native or foreign soil. The total of Connecticut men in the service is very large and is now be ing constantly Increased by the draft increments. . i HOME CHAPTER OPENS THE FALL SEASON Tribute Paid to Memory -of Stella Whiting Noyes.
