For the first forty minutes it was a total eclipse of the electric light ser vice, both on street lights and lights and power in homes, stores and man ufacturing industries, but for the rest c- f the ninety piinut'cs there was elec tricity enough to light the streets but not to furnish lights for the residences and business houses. . The trouble started .at a few minutes after 8 o'clock when the big 2.000 kilo, watt turbine at the city electric light plant went on strike, cutting off the whole electric current and plunging the city without warning into Stygian darkness. No help could be obtained f-om the Uncas Power company at Scotland dam as the high tension, line from there to the city plant was grounded. Superintendent Stephen J. Kehoe summoned everyone of his men to the plant as soon as the trouble developed and they worked till late- into the night trying to find out what had made the turbine lay down on the job, and to get the full service into operotior. again. The small 750 kilowatt engine was started up to fill in on the emergency, but it was able to carry, only part of he load that is caed for when street lights, electric power and the commer cial service is all running: It began to shoot the current along at 8.40 and this was first utilized on a bmne-1 number of the street light circuits and on furnishine power in industries that are on war work. At 9.30, by which time the 2,000 kilowatt machine was still cut of com mission, it was decided -to give the people in their homes enough light to see to go to bed oy, and the power was turned into the commercial ser vice lines but cut off from Manufac turing plants. This gave lights in tbe residences, stores and on the streets, but shut down the Martin-Rockwell factory, which remained shut don till 12.30. when it got. its electric powar back. In the eenter of the city while there were no lights in such" of the stores as1 happened to be open, everybody re sorted to the street?, where the clerks waited in momentary expectation that they would soon have-light. Few tried to light up with candles though one barber was observed finishing up a haircut in' this way. At the Wauregan bouse the night clerk had several -can dles standing on the counter and car- j nod anotr.er in his hand with which he lighted up the key rack as he kept on Assigning and booking guests. At the police station there were sev eral gas jets which took care of the situation thure in case prisoners had to be booked. . . , One of the few places in the city that was not interrupted was The Bul letin office where he work went on as usual as the company runs its own lightinar and electric power plant. At the Davis theatre. Manager Al Craig had a well filled house. He told them what the matter was when the TAFTVILLE INVENTOR - - , IS GRANTED PATENT list of patents issued by the United States patent office to citiaens of Connecticut as contained in the Offi. cial Gazette dated Tuesday, Aug 13, 1918, is as follows:' Walter G.

There is a question whether this is the disease known as Spanish Influenza or a malignant form of or dinary grippe. An investigation of the disease is being made both by the state authori ties and the local health officer. Dr. E. J. Brophy, and within a short time in structions regarding dealing with the disease will be announced. With th:t disease the fever is higher and al though the disease is persistent if care is taken it leaves the patient very suddenly. The advice of the health department is that when the first symptoms of the disease r,npear, which are chills, bs.ckache, headache and coughing, the patient sholld immediately go to bed and call a physician and not try to battle the disease as it is liable to run into pneumonia as is the case in sev eral families :n the city. Ail patients mould be kept in an isolated room by themselves and no one should be al lowed to sleep in the same room. The patient should have his or her own eating and drinking utensils. The pa tient, when he raises should expec tcrate into a - cloth that should be burned. The disease is the most con tagious form of grippe and every1 means to ? prevent the spreading,, of this disease should be taken. The health department will issue more in structions regarding it within the next 4S hours and these instructions should be obeyed to the letter.
