" -1 J- Vfhe Colt pistol-consists of a maga zine, with eight " cartridges and a i chamber, which holds the one that is ejected. Mr. Clark had removed the magazine when he began his explana tion but neglected to empty the cham ber.

Griswold returned from Philadelphia, Saturday, where he attended the annual meeting of the Americahf Association of Clinical Re search." Dr." Griswold read a paper at the convention on Friday and the Phil :adelphia"North American of Saturday has ;the following account of his ad dress:.. v. "Compulsory medical inspection and improved working conditions in in dustry were urged to reduce the enormous, economic- loss (due to preventable-disease and '' accidents' in a' paper read by Dr. Roger M. Griswold, of Kensington, Conn. "The time has passed when the cheapest thing in the world is human life," he said. "Few of us realize the enormous loss caused every year by ill health of workers and by acci dents. , If the time lost on account of preventable sickness and accidents could, be converted into cash and used for federal expenses, we could do away with all taxes except those on imports. To improve the conditions of workers is not philantrophy. It is good bus iness." "His paper was a discussion of medi cal inspection in schools and in in dustrial establishments. He pointed out that workers yearly lose much time by preventable illness and that children are -kept out of school un necessarily. He proposed as a means' of preventing illness universal medical inspection at intervals. He decried opposition of labor unions to this move." Bertha Ellen Ford. Bertha Ellen, the three, months old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Ford of Percival street, Kensington, died at her home last night. The funeral was held this afternoon, Rev. E. M.

IPialnvillc News THIEVES HAKE HAUL AT GENERAL STORE H. A, James Loses About . $200 Worth of His Stock TAKE LOOT AWAY IN GBIPS Much 'Jewelry Included In Plunder Pair Of Rough Looking Characters, Who Visited Store ' Saturday Are Suspected Fifty-eight New Voters. Jewelry and articles of wearing ap parel, the estimated value of which is about $200, comprised the haul made by burglars who visited the store of Horace A. -James on West , Main street some time after midnight Sat urday. The break was discovered this morning, the owner finding that his, nocturnal guests had taken some valuable goods, after apparently mak ing. a careful examintion of the stock. The pc.lice of other places in the state will be notified of the burglary in the hope that through the sale of the plunder the crooks may be ap prehended. Nothing but the best was carried off by the burglars. The goods were taken from shelves and the most valu able articles were selected for re moval. From the jewelry case a number of rings, watch chains, fobs and trinkets of some value were stolen. The burglars also selected some of the latest "sport" shirts and neckties and a quantity of underwear, some sweaters were also appropriated. The cash drawer was examined and the contents, probably $1 in pennies, were removed. A black traveling bag, the highest priced one in the store, and a valuable suit case, were used as receptacles for the stolen goods, the thieves departing with them. An inventory of the stock will be neces sary before the actual extent of the robbery will be known. The thieves gained entrance to the store by prying open an iron door in the rear. That they were in no hurry is evident from the careful man ner in which they selected the plun der. Although Stephen Dietzko, one of the clerks, was in the store for a short time yesterday morning, the burglary was not discovered until today. Yes terday Mr. Dietzko found the rear door open but he did not notice any thing disturbed. He found the day's sales, which had been hid before clos ing time Saturday night and in his hurry he did not see anything to arouse his suspicions. He thought it possible that Mr. James had been in the place early in the day and had opened the door. Consequently he did not mention the fact when he met the owner. This morning the bare jewelry case gave mute testimony to the visit of the thieves and an examination of the stock was at once begun. The job is believed to have been the work of a pair of nervy young men who visited the store at noon Saturday. Miss Loretta Flynn was alone in the store at the time and their appearance and actions made her suspicious of them. They priced pieces of jewelry, tried on sweaters and looked the;place over carefully one of them finally buying some rib bon before departing. Miss Flynn called the attention of Mr. Dietzko to them later and facetiously remarked that if the store was burglarized at ! night she would know who was re sponsible. The men, who were tough looking characters, called at other stores, during the day and made in quiries about stock, evidently with the intention of getting the lay-out of the places to complete their nefarious plans. ' They had not been seen here since and it is generally thought that they left town on a freight train after their raid at the drygoods store. Fifty-Eight New Voters. Fifty-eight new voters will be eligible to cast their ballots at the annual election . next Monday, ; the selectmen and town clerk having ad- ' ministered the elector's oath to that ! number at a session held Saturday. Practically all who appeared for ex amination qualified and their names were added to the list. It is believed that many of the new voters will help to swing the town for license at the election, the liquor dealers being responsible for the ap pearance of a large number at the ses sion. The saloonkeepers used their autos to get the candidates to the hall. Issue Call for Meeting. The call for the annual election on Monday, which includes the town meeting, was issued today by the board of selectmen. The session will be held on Monday, the voters casting their ballots for town officers and ad journing to some subsequent date for the transaction of other business men tioned in the notice. In the call this year only routine matters are mentioned. Ballots will be cast for a town clerk, treasurer, assessor, tax collector, three members of the board of relief, seven constables, three selectmen, three gnoid jurors, Hiree members of the school board, two registrars of voters, two auditors and two directors of the library. A volt- will also be taken on th'3 license ;ueftioh. At the adjourned session iho voters will consider the laying of - v-.wn tax, the policing of streets, the increasing of the number of street lights, the continuation of the night school and the surveying of certain of the town streets. Special Session Tonight. There is seeminglv but little inter est in the special town meeting to be held in the town hall this evening and it is not expected that the attendance will be large. The session will take action on the petition of voters in W,estwood park for converting pass ways in that section into highways f-uitablc for vehicular traffic. r.i'he general impression seems to be that the district is asking for too much and while it is possible that an appro priation may be voted for the select -mon's use on Westwood park roads, it. is not thought that all the damand will be granted. Westwood park will be strongly represented at the meeting, its resi dents having made plans to make u vigorous attempt 'o get favorable ac tion on their petition. The object of getting the passway in shape is, according to the petition, to insure a continuance of the rural free delivery service from the local post office, federal inspectors having reported that the carrier will have to stop making his trips to that section unless better roads are provided for his use. Laborer Killed by Auto. John Potter, an aged Southlngton laborer, employed by the state in making repairs on highways, was struck and almost instantly killed by an auto near Dunham's bridge late Saturday afternoon. The man was at work on the Southington highway at the time of the accident. The car which struck him was owned and driven by C. M. HatcTi of Bridge water, who was exonerated of blame after an examination by Medical Ex aminer Steadman of Southington- According to Hatch, Potter be came confused as the car neared him, and after he had left its path ran back in its way and was knocked down. The car, it is raid, was going at good speed and the injured man was dragged a considerable distance before the machine could bevbroughtl to a stop. Assessor J. J. Watson of New Brit ain, who passed the scene of the ac cident a few minutes after the man was struck, hurried to Piainville and returned with Dr. J. N. Bull. When the phyician arrived life was extinct Officer Philip Marino left the businens men's sheep barbecue at Lake Com pounce to investigate the accident, having been advised that it occurred on the Piainville side of the town line. Damage by Wind. During the violent wind last even ing a number of shade trees around town were damaged, several .large limbs having been broken off by the gale. On East Main street a large tree was split in twain and the branches fell across the electric light wires- Some of the streets were air-wires- Some of the streets were fair incident to the storm. Officer Marino became suddenly charitable with autoist.s and made no arrest or violating of the light law. The wind extinguished the tail lamps on a number cf machines. Owing to extenuating circumstances, the offi cer allowed the violators , of the law to pass unnoticed as far as court pro ceedings are concerned. Brief Items. J. H.
