Hamilton Park presented -an animated
scene yesterday afternoon. Bicyclists were
practicing, carpenters were nuttiner the new
stands in order, fixing the fence and making
oiner necessary improvements to render the
park fit for the big crowds that will gather
there to-day and to-morrow. It is located
between the club house and the old stand
commanding a fine view of the whole track
It will seat 1,000 persons. A special stand
has been arranged for the press. Everything
uus ueen none mat couia De done to have
the races successful and to accommodate the
crowds that will attend. Although no spe
cial trains will be run it is understood that
large numbers will come from Meriden. Wal-
lingford, Derby,Bridgeport and other smaller
towns hereabouts to witness the races of both
days. So great is the interest in bicycling.
Indeed, there is no form of racing that is
more thoroughly delightful, free as it is
from all objectionable associations.
The Hamilton Park track, which has been
a bone of contention in the L. A. W., was
measured yesterday by Mr. Weaver of the
Spirit of the Times, A. P. Bayard, editor of
the Amateur Athlete, Dr. N. P. Tyler, chief
consul of the L. A. W., and Captain Fred
n. ronton oi tneiNew .Haven Bicycle club.
I he track was found to be 14 feet and 8
inches over a mile in length. Curbing has
been pnt in on the turns, which will prevent
riders from gaining an unfair advantage by
running ciose to tne rainng. A large force
of men, teams and rollers was at work ves-
terday getting the track in order, and it was
pronounced in hne condition by the English
nyers, setters, jnamDers,Uaskiel and Illston,
whe were out practicing on it yesterday.
This af ternoon Richard Howell, the great
ex-champion, will strain every nerve to beat
the record of 2:39 for the mile. Woodside,
champion of Ireland, will accompany him to
set ihe speed for a portion of the mile. John
Prince, the world's professional champion,
will appear this afternoon.
The famous fancy riders Pressy and Lester,
who are said to be the best in the world,
give an exhibition m New York to-morrow
afternoon. They give an exhibition here at
the rink under the auspices of the New
Haven Bicycle club to-morrow evening. In
order to get them here in time the club have
chartered a special train which will bring
them here in good season for the evening's
exhibition. The club is consequently at
considerable expense to fulfill its agreements
and they deserve patronage accordingly. If
the weather is favorable it is safe to predict
that there will be immense crowds in atten
dance at both days' races.
Thu evening there will be a meeting of
the State division, L. A. W., in the room of
tne iNew .Haven .bicycle club in Masonic
Hall building.
Headless Body Identified.
The headless body of a man found on the
Sound Beach last Sunday has been identified
as that of John R. Holroyd, of Norwich, who
was lost from the steamer City of New York
while on an excursion from Norwich to
Bridgeport on Sunday, September 7.
A large new barn belonging to William H.
Morrison in Black Rock was destroyed by
fire early Friday morning together with its
contents. The fire was first discovered about
3 o'clock by Mr. Faneher, but had gained
such headway that it was impossible to put
it out. The building was full of hay and
farming materials, and the loss is estimated
to be about $5,000.
Bridgeport Hospital.
The medical staff of the Bridgeport hospi
tal is as follows: Physician in charge,
George F. Lewis; consulting physicians, A.
H. Abernethy, Robert Hubbard, J. R. Cum-
ming, C. W. Sheffrey; visiting physicians,
R. Lauder, G. L. Porter, N. E. Wordin, C.
H. Bill, B. W. Munson, F. J. Young; gyne
cologist, George F. Lewis; oculist and aurist
F. M. Wilson; paleontologist, W. H. Bun
nell; microscopist, C. C. Godfrey. Autho
rity was given the building committee to
erect a stable and sheds for the use of the
hospital at a cast not to exceed $1,500.
Burglars In Stratford.
Three places in West Stratford were visit
ed by thieves Saturday night. Broch's
grocery store, Farrell O'Reilly's residence
and John Riley's grocery were each visited,
but nothing of great value was taken. At
the former place the burglars were probably
frightened away after having bored through
the frame to one of the front window. At
O'Reilly's . residence they ransacked the
lower floor of the house, taking a gold locket
and some clothing. They gained an entrance
through a rear window. At Riley's store
they broke in through a cellar window. Two
money drawers were found opened and a
small amount of cash taken. As yet no clue
has been obtained to the robbers.
Aged Seventy-Nine.
Charles Werner, hair dresser in Bridge
port, is enjoying the society of his father,
Christian Werner, for the first time in twenty-seven
years, the aged gentleman having
arrived last Thursday from Bremen on the
steamer Rhine. While yet in possession of
his faculties at the age of seventy-nine years
Mr. Werner cou.es to Bridgeport where with
his son Charles he will establish his resi
dence. Accompanying him to this country
was the wife of his son George, who came
here several months ago. Thus, with the ex
ception of his son Henrich, a" director in a
college at Dolores, Buenos Ayres, S. A., Mr.
Werner in declining years is surrounded by
his descendants whose delight is to attend to
his every desire. Joseph Werner, a son of
Charles, has recently come to this country,
and as a physician has located at Water
bury. Humor In the Stomaeh.
Mnch of the distress and sickness attribu
ted to dyspepsia, chronic diarrhoea and other
causes is occasioned by humor in the stom
ach. Several cases, with all the character
istics of these complaints, have been cured
by Hood's Sarsaparilla. Other cures effected
by this medicine are so wonderful that the
simplest statement of them affords the best
proof that it combines rare curative agents,
and when once need secures the confidence
of the people.
The Pntnam Phalanx Four Days Ex
cursion. The Putnam Phalanx, of Hartford, and
guests left yesterday morning for their four
days' excursion. There were two hundred

Successful Opening Yesterday Tne
Exhibition Gives Universal Satlsfac
Bunnell's museum opened yesterday with
large crowds in attendance both afternoon
and evening. The general opinion expressed
was that the museum was a success. -The
whole show -is remarkably fine for a low-
priced entertainment.
The hallway has been somewhat changed
and improved. A short distance from the
entrance is the ticket office, where for a dime
a ticket is procured which admits to the
museum proper, and also to the gaUery of
the theater, where a varied and interesting
entertainment is given each afternoon and
evening. An additional ten cents secures a
seat in the body of the house. ,
In the.- museum, which runs the entire
length of the building, are several handsome
ly draped platforms, on which are placed the
wonders. Here was seen the Indian prin
cess, who entertained the audience with
songs and a history of her life. The elastic
haired lady and bearded girl were among
other attractions shown. The side walls are
lined with glass cases, in which are numer
ous natural curiosities. Stuffed birds, ani
mals and reptiles are displayed, showing the
wonaenui art or tne skillful taxidermist.
Large frames, which inclosed photo
graphs of over two hundred human wonders
which during the season are to be exhibited
here, attract much attention, especially
rora nuaeDrana. .Large mirrors which
show the person before them to be as wide

The Dwight Place church Pulpit,
Rev. Thomas R. Bacon, pastor of the
Dwight Place church, stated yesterday that
ne knew of no defection amone his member
ship because of his attacks as an Indeoendent
Republican, and that if there was any it was
news to him. He knew that a maioritv of
his members were Republicans. He had no
feeling of defection as regards Mr. Harrison,
whom he should vote for for Governor. He
disclaimed approval of any idea that the nul-
pit is a fit place to make stump speeches
rrom, but claimed the rights of an American
citizen as to his political preferences.
The College Football Season.
Now that we have returned and had tinr9
to get settled, the first thing that interests us
is the condition of our football eleven and
our chances for the championship. In the
jjiuch we nave lost onr last year s cap
tain, end-rush, and quarter-back, and while
we have a good captain to take his place
still we shall miss him from the rusher fine.
The position of quarter-back can, we think
be fairly well filled, although it will be im
possible to get anyone to entirely fill Twom-
bly s place. But we have no one for end-
rush this year who is nearly up to the re
quired standard. Thus we find ourselve.
with three valuable men gone, and while
their places may be ever so well filled, stilj
there will be three remarkably good players
gone. And the complement of the team
will have to be made np of raw and inex
penenced men. Considering the
chance of Harvard, we find that they still
keep nearly all of their old men, and those
they lose are for the most part from unim
portant positions. At Princeton, Moffat is
coming back, and we hear rumors of the re
turn as a post-graduate of a certain famous
player. So that taking it all in all "-we are
probably the worst off of any of the colleges.
And realizing this it is our duty, whoever of
ns play at all, to go out, not occasionally
uuriig tne rail, Dut systematically
olten as is possible. No one should
think that one more, or less will
make no difference and therefore stay
away, ior every one is valuable and helps.
Then, too, the freshmen should turn ont in
large numbers and should put every good-
su.eu man in tneir class m tneir field imino-
diately, in order that if any have the stuff
ior tne university m them it may have time
for development. They should also choose
tlieir eleven as soon as they can and give it
hearty support, both financially and by their
presence at tneir games. Yale Daily News.
