He had been a conductor on the Hartford road since 1860, previous to which ye&r he had been a bag gage master on the road. His -health began to give way a few years ago and not long since he wai obliged to retire from the ser vice. He was married, but his wife and he had lived apart for several years by mutual agreement.

"OrSOFLB-OntOFLA. " ' ' Girofle-Girofla" was presented last night at Carll's by the Boston Ideal company. This little opera bouff e in three acts is bright and charming. Its plot is the embarrass ment arising from the abduction of Girofla at a time when she was about to be married together with her twin sister Girofle. The bridegrooms who had been selected by the mother were a warlike neighbor and the son of a wealthy banker.. Each are necessities to the old Don, the father of the charming Maenechmai. Neither groom will brook any delay and so Girofla is married: to each. Girofla, however, js opportunely, restored just when the truth becomes known. Mr. Barnabee as the Don did remarkably well and was very comical. Mr. Morsell as Ma rasquin both sang and acted well. Mr. Whitney as the Moor was repeatedly en cored. In his solo, "The Traveler's Lot is Always Bitter," his full deep voice seemed to have more than itB usual power. - Miss Ger aldine TJlmar appeared as Cirofle and Giro fla. Her acting and - singing throughout sustained her reputation. Her duet with the old Don was particularly amusing. "Girofle-Girofla" had some very pretty cous ins, notwithstanding the Don characterized them as a band of little rascals. Pedro loved Paquita and Paquita loved Pedro. : Pedro made s mistake. . There was a large audi ence last evening despite the unpleasant weather. . . .- . . FAIR HAVEN. The Wedding- of Edward F. Thompson and Iottle J.

Teams passing up Whalley avenue last evening about half -past 5 o'clock were met by an opposing stream of flying horses that swept down the avenue like the wind and carried everything before it everything but the clouds of dust. Wayfarers who attempt ed to cross the avenue had to look sharp for the gay trotters. Horse cars and omnibuses caught the fever and bowled along, a caution to all beholders. Conspicuous in the throng of drivers was the Rev. M. H. Houghton, whose horse had many a brush with step pers along the road and in all instances sur passed them. The racing spirit which shone upon every driver's countenance, whether his horse was a '40 clipper OF-a weak-kneed plug, was derived from the races at Hamilton Park, which had been very strongly contestad. The horses trotted their best and split up the heats so that the two classes -set down yester day afternoon were both unfinished. Dark nesa came on and the betting men went home with anxious hearts. There was a very large crowd present when the races were under way. More peo ple were in attendance than on the previous day. The weather was delightful, although a strong wind swept across the track. The unfinished 2:30 race was first called Blue Bell had won two heats and Boss H also had two heats to his credit. To the surprise of many Lady Scud .took- the lead and held it to the finish! trotting without skip or break. Blue Bell pressed her hard. Boss H. was third, Falka fourth. Time, 2:29. - The next heat was taken by Blue Bell although Lady Scud made a noble effort up to the last quarter. On the stretch all the hprses jogged in easily, Boss H. passing to second place just before the finish. The time was 2:29. Blue Bell's first money was $200. Boss H. got second, $100, Lady Scud $60 as third money, while the fourth, $40, went to Falka. The 2:45 class, purse $200, was called up and five horses responded to the bell. Hazel Rock, owned by Edward Malley, figured as a pool favorite. Sherbrooke, owned by O. H. Baraham, also had his backers. The first heat was taken easily by Sherbrooke in 2:38, Hazel Rock second, Cylene third, Major fourth and Professor Medium fifth. The pools now sold: Sherbrooke $10, field $10. Hazel Rock got the lead on a break by Sherbrooke and Cylene made a strong pull for first place, but ran considerably. Major pulled up to second and finished in good style a short distance behind Hazel Rock. Time, 2:37. Hazel Rock led on the start of the third heat, but broke and Cylene passed her. Then Sherbrooke drew up and took first place and led on the third quarter. Hazel Rock and Cylene again broke and Sherbrooke won his second heat with Hazel a good sec ond and Major fourth. For the fourth heat the honors were won by Hazel Rock as she led from the start. Sherbrooke and Cylene acted badly. Dark ness prevented any further racing in this class. Following is the partial SUHMAKV. John B. Judd, New Haven, c. g. Hazel Rock 2 1 21 O. H. Bum ham, New Haven, c. g. Sher brooke 13 12 F. W. Reynolds, Hartford, b. m. Cylene 3 4 8 3 B. F.

When the judges called up the 2:34 class, purse $400, all the horses appeared but White Eye, entered by Henry Pope, Jersey City. - Lantern drew the pole, Bessie B. sec ond, Dan third and Westchester Girl fourth. Westchester Girl and White Eye had ruled as the pool favorites, selling for $10 each, although the buyers were inclined to buy cautiously. Bessie B. sold for $5, Dan for $3 and Lantern $3. On the send-off Lantern, the pole horse, rushed to the front and got a good lead, Bes sie B. following him closely. She could not head Lantern, although she tried very hard. Lantern stubbornly hung to his place and Bessie B. was not a half length behind him at the finish. Westchester Girl and Dan trotted well. The pools now changed. The field brought $24, with Bessie B. or Lantern selling at $10 for a choice. Bessie B. had plenty of friends who were confident she could win. She got a good lead on the third quarter and passed un der the wire an easy winner. Westchester girl took the next heat after one of the finest struggles of the day. She passed Bessie B. on the back stretch. On the last quarter the race was. close. West chester Girl won by half a length, although she ran under the wire. The judges an nounced that the races would be finished this morning at 11 o'clock. Lantern, Westchester Girl and Bessie B. have each won a heat. The race will be won only after a hard strug gle. Following is the SUMMARY. " C. E. Swan, New York, g.m. Bessie B. 2 1 2 Charles Dickerman, N. Y., blk. m. West chester Girl 3 2 1 Edwin Perrin, New York, b. g. Lantern 1 3 8 P.

The great attraction is the free for all race. ' An Eighty-two Tear-Old Trlcyellst An Aged Bleycllst. Mr. Charles Sawyer, eighty-two years of age, of Colebrook " River, has been visiting his old friend,' Mr. - H. T. Douglas, on Prince street in this city. Mr. D. is possessed of a tricycle and is an expert tider.'

While on the subject the following is ap ropos: Major Knox Holmes, aged seventy seven years, rode recently, mounted on a tri cycle, a ten-hours' match against G. L. Hil lier, ex-champion bicyclist of England, "weight for age," Hillier allowing the major one mile start for each year of the difference between their ages. As the ex-champion is only twenty-eight he had to concede his op ponent forty-nine miles, which, as it turned out, he was totally unable to do, although he : bestrode a two-wheel instead of a three-wheel steed. Major Holmes did not stop until he had covered seventy-four miles, and then only for five minutes, while Hillier at fifty-six miles, for which he beat the pre vious best time, took nearly half an hour's rest. Neither stopped again until the task was completed, the score at the conclusion of the ten hours being: Knox Holmes 115 miles 261) yards, Hillier 140 miles ZoO yards. HAWLET TO-NIGHT.

Through the kindness of a benevolent lady named Mrs. Harris the body of Ada Brown the murdered Hartford woman, was interred at Zion Hnl cemetery in that city yesterday afternoon. The deceased's husband was William a. Brown. He died about a year ago of consumption." During the war he was a member of the Sixteenth regiment, Connec ticut Volunteers. Her child has been placed in an orphan asylum. None of her relatives responded to the telegrams sent them. Harrison, the cor driver, was much im proved yesterday. He may recover, but the the case is still doubtful. His wife c mittea suiciae about 1J years ago, since which time he has associated, with women of loose character. One of them, the reputed mistress of Harrison, committed suicide about three years ago by jumping off the stone wall near tne Morgan street bridge. An employe of the horse railroad company nas laentinea tne knxte as one which he saw in Harrison's possession a few days before the murder. Gregory's claim is that the knife was Har rison's and that Harrison cut the woman with it, and then tried to cut his own throat which he was prevented from doing by Greg ory, liregory's claim is supported, by witness named Minnie Shepherd. Harrison' ante mortem statement is that Gregory stab bed him after having murdered the woman. Engagement Cancelled.
