OFFICE, 400 STATE STREET.
HAVEN, COKK. FRIDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 20, 1885.
UNTIL 27th OF FEB
That is, until we take
account of stock, we
shall not have much to
say in advertisements.
We have quantities of
new goods bought to
arrive early in March.
Some are coming innow,
. for instance the new
wash fabrics, Ginghams,
Cambrics, &c; but in
the meantime our chief
aim is to reduce stock,
and to that end there is
only one way that we
know of, namely, mak
ing things cheap enough.
You may not want a
winter dress at this late
part of the season if
you do, you can buy the
material now cheap
enough in all conscience
but how about Silks?
Black Silk is never out
of season, and the' time
for Summer Silks is
coming. And yet just
on these two articles at
the present moment you
ivill find unprecedented
prices in our store; un
precedented is just the
word prices never be
fore seen on the same
quality of goods.
Never mind why we
are selling these goods
now in such a way. We
have reasons that are
cogent enough to our
selves, and for you
why, if you get the
eoods at three-fourths
to two-thirds of value
it's all pure saving. Our
competitors are worried,
not to know why, but
how we can sell Silks
in that way. Well, we
are not under any obli
gation to explain, and if
you get Silk so cheap
you needn't puzzle over
By the way, just 'one
word in anticipation of
first week in March.
We are "laying the
pipes" conspiring with
a large maker of Ladies'
White -Underwear for a
great dynamite explo
sion (figuratively) i n
that department. Just
wait till you see !

HOW IT WOBU IN IOWA,
Several years ago the leaders of the "tenr
perance" movement in Iowa began to active
ly work for a prohibitory law, which, with
the usual good judgment of the prohibition
ists, they believed would be very effective.
Finally their efforts were successful and they
got a prohibitory law passed, which took
effect on the 4th cf July last. A careful in
vestigation of the working of the .law has
been made, and the results of it are interest
ing and significant. The city clerks of the
chief cities of the State furnished some ac
curate and valuable information. They were
asked to state the number of licensed saloons
which were in existence before last July, and
the number of places where intoxicating
liquors are sold by the drink at the present
time: Des Moines is the capital and the
largest city in the State. Under the old
system it had 58 saloons; under the prohibi
tory law the number of drinking places is
reported as 225. Davenport formerly had
132 saloons; now 150 drinking places are
known. Burlington had 68 saloons under
the old regime, and has 127 under the new;
Keokuk, 29 before prohibition and 65 since;
Ottumwa, 22 formerly and 60 now. In one
case the number is reported unchanged, and
in three instances there has been a falling
off, but the aggregate for the ten cities heard
from is 868 drinking places now, as against
only 593 before prohibition.
But the effects of prohibition are seen not
only in an increase in the number of rum
shops. Under the old law a heavy license fee
was demanded of the saloon keeper, and he was
thus made to pay a good round sum for the
privilege of selling liquor. Dubuque charged
$100; Davenport, $200; Keokuk, $500, and
Des Moines $1,000. Under this system the
local treasury at the State capital received
the sum of $58,900 last year from the fifty
eight licensed saloons; Davenport, $26,400;
Keokuk, $14,500, and so on. Altogether the
ten cities received no less than $211,382 a
year from the saloons. The loss of this rev
enue has required a large increase in the tax
rate in many cases, the liquor seller thus
profiting at the expense of the average tax
payer. The injustice of this is so obvious
that in Keokuk and one or two other places,
where the failure of prohibition is confessed,
the authorities are now licensing saloon keep
ers. A pretense is made of allowing the sale
in such cases only of "liquids as beverages
not prohibited by the statutes of the State."
but it is understood by everybody that no
such restriction will be enforced.
So thf results of prohibition in Iowa thus
far are an inorease in the number of saloons
and a decrease in the revenue of the public
treasury from them. It would take a very
hardened prohibitionist to extract any com
fort from these facta.
It has been decided by a jury in Williman
tio that a Connecticut man's ear is worth
$3,000. Now we want to know the exact
value of a Connecticut woman's tongue.
We do not want to make the pigs who are
obliged to live in this region discontented, but
the farmers of southern California have, it is
declared, found that it pays to raise grapes
and figs to feed to their pigs.
A tenant whose family was stricken with
diphtheria in Brooklyn has begun a suit for
damages against the owner of the house. The
plumbing was defective, and the landlord
failed to have it attended to after he was
asked to do so. It will be interesting to see how
this suit comes out.
The beauty and grandeur of red tape had a
striking illustration in London the other day.
A girl having poisoned herself, the doctors
sent to the Middlesex hospital to borrow a
stomach pump. The authorities sent back
word that the patient should have been taken
to the hospital, as they did not lend out
stomach pumps. The girl died.
Mr. Boverton Redwood, who is a recog
nized authority on petroleum, recently de
livered a lecture in London on the Russian
petroleum industry. After careful photome
tric tests he has delivered judgment somewhat
in favor of American petroleum. He finds
that the Russian oil does not give as high
an illuminating power as American oil, but
there is considerably less diminution of the
light as the oil in the reservoir of the lamp
falls. The inequality in illuminating power,
however, is only a matter of refining.
The French Reformed Church, which is
now commanding considerable attention on
account of some internal movements and
from the relation which it is assuming tow
ard the State, is divided into 101 consistories
and 552 parishes. Provision is made by the
State for the payment of 638 pastors. Be
sides the 552 parishes there are 699 annexes
at which worship is celebrated. The tem
ples or oratories are 929, and there are 256
other rooms which are used for divine ser
vices. In the annexes the services are held
in the open air. '
Mr. Labouchere does not believe in letting
the fortunes that men make live after them
in 'undivided entirety. "I would not al
low," he says, "anyone to inherit from an
other beyond a certain sum. Let us suppose
this sum were 100,000, and that a man
dies leaving a fortune of 1,000,000, and
three children. A twenty per cent, succes
sion duty would absorb 200,000. There
would then, after each child had inherited
100,000, remain 500,000. To share this
he would have to find five persons. Thus,
instead of one son having nearly a million
and two sons a trifle, as is the result of the
mode in which rich men now leave their
money, the State would come in for 200,000,
and eight persons would have a very com
Senator Plumb of Kansas gives some inter
eating facts concerning sugar making from
sorghum. There are in Kansas ' three sugar
factories, which made last year seventy thou
sand pounds of sugar, which cost in the un
developed state- of the industry about as
much as it would sell for. There is no
question as to the production of sugar from
sorghum,nor any as to the large belt of coun
try in which sorghum can readily be grown.
Nor is it the question as to what sugar has
cost as produced by the Agricultural depart
ment, or will cost produced in a small way
by inexperienced persons; it is what, scien
tifically speaking, sugar from sorghum will
cost when produced under proper conditions
by those who understand the business. Prof.
Collier is the highest authority, and he is
confident that it can be produced for two
cents a pound.
"The new South" has broken out in
Texas. At Dallas Judge Schuhl reoently ad
mitted colored men (for the first time, ap
parently, in that region) to the jury box, and
he has been severely censured for doing so.
But the Hon. James B. Simpson, described
as a pronounced and leading Democrat,
promptly steps forward to the judge's side
and rebukes the fanld-finders. "Our courts
do not realize," he says in a card publiphed
over his signature in the local newspaper,
"and our fashionable churches have conven
iently forgotten that slavery has been blown
away at the cannon's mouth, and that a new
duty that cannot be shirked or evaded has
come upon the South since the accession of
the Democracy to power. To southern Dem
ocrats and to Bouthern honor is largely com
mitted the fate of over 6,000,000 freednien."
This is plain language from truthful James.
Dr. John T. Nagle, deputy registrar of vi
tal statistics in New" York, has this to say
about consumption: Government hospitals
for the treatment of persons suffering from
consumption ought to be established at mili
tary posts in Texas, Colorado and southern
California, whera the conditions of altitude,
mild temperature and dryness of the air are
unexcelled. Such stations of observation
ought to be under the supervision of the Na
tional Board of Health, in order that the best
possible use could be made of information
which might be obtained. It is probable
that valuable discoveries regarding the na
ture and progress of consumption would be
made if physicians were constantly observ
ing cases of the disease under favorable con
ditions. Consumption is such a scourge to
humanity that any means of abatement can
not be considered too expensive. In this
city more than one-seventh of the deaths are
caused by consumption, and of grown per
sons more than one-fifth die from the disease.
The government is ready to take extraordi
nary means to prevent a threatened epidemic
of cholera, which could destroy- only a few
.housand lives at most in this latitude. It
ought to do something to check the' increase
of a disease which kills over 5,000 persons
each year in this city.
lilore Llaht on a Social Problem
To the Editor of the Journal and Courier:
You say I have omitted telling you my
own share in our success, and also how we
managed to start right in the beginning of
our matrimonial career. This was the way
it was done. By saving a part of my hus
band's earnings we were able, in a few years,
to buy a building lot in the outskirts of the
town. Then we saved for a house, which
my husband erected with his own hands
when his services were not in demand by
others. And here let me say I think it is
the bound en duty of all parents to
give their children some trade or definite
practical means or getting a living. My hus
band received only his "freedom suit" when
he became of age, but he had something bet
ter, as he had acquired the ability to support
family by his honest, emcient industry. As
for myself, I will not boast of doing anything
more than any other healthy lady can do
who looks well to the ways of her own house
hold. I do my own work with the assistance
of my two little girls, who save me a great
many steps ana help in various ways. They
say we are all "as busy as bees," that there
are no drones in the hive.
In buying the clothing for the family I
wait till goods are "marked down," when
the season is nearly over. I "make over"
things, as the saying is. W.'s outside gar
ments washed, pressed and trimmed with
bright braid make nice dress skirts and
school suits for the children. Good, com
mon napkins I make from the sides of table
cloths after they have done service on the
board. Large stockings I cut down for the
little ones. In addition to my own house
hold duties, 1 often give a helping nana to
my next door neighbor. When
getting dress goods for myself I
select soft woolens, dark in color
and medium in weight, so that I can wear
them all the year around. We take two
weekly newspapers and one monthly maga
zine, and often exchange with our neighbors.
From time to time we purchase a good book
and have time to read it. So you see we
pay due regard to the better portion of our
natures, and try to be intelligently posted on
all the most important topics of the times.
We are often able to help others in many
ways, and to give regularly to church and
Hard Timet, Dull Timet, Panic, Good
To the Editor of the Journal" and Courier:
These different kinds of times most of us
have experienced and they run about as fol
lows: Hard Times Times may be called hard
when everybody is very busy. For instance,
the workers of the soil toil and sweat prepar
atory for seeding their grounds, and if
blessed with a bountiful crop they work
hard to harvest it. The mechanics, too, work
hard days and nights to supply the markets,
and so matters go on until all get tired out
with hard work to produce something to live
on and make money, then, too, the mer
chants, the middle men. Their clerks and
porters have to step lively, waiting on cus
tomers, packing and delivering merchandise
from early dawn till late at night. The re
sult is everybody gets tired and longs for a
time of rest, and that time after awhile
comes and then they seem to be happy.
Dull Times Now after a rest all feel ready
again to go through another season of hard
times; but tney nna tne market ami ana
r rices low. Employers are not ready to
start up with full force, employes become
uneasy, many of tnem out ot money. 1 hey
complain of their employers for not setting
them at work. They are told that the
demand for goods . light and they
cannot afford to yki stock on a
falling market, but must hold up
until tne market is ciearea out ana gooas
wanted. This will satisfy some, but many
can't see it. They think their employer is
taking advantage of them. They get mad
and leave to find a job. Some may find one,
but perhaps at less wages than they have
been having, yet they accept it, on the say
ing that "half a loaf is better than no bread;"
but some won't do that. They fret and damn
everybody and. now comes on the trouble
some Panic Men are tramping looking: for work.
They find everywhere about the same state
of things with possibly some exceptions. As
the saying is, "It s an ill wind that blows
nobody any good." And this we think 'is a
fact, for many times some make the most
money when the country is panicky, but this
is the exception. But after a while the mar
ket begins to get short of goods, orders be
gin to oome in to the producers more liberally.
Then worn is given out that there is .work
again for all hands.
Good limes. l ma is good news. All go to
work again, all get happy, money begins to
circulate plentifully, and times are nearly
g'Xd again; and continue to be looked at in
that light, tiara times, ami times, ana
panics, are almost forgotten for the time
being, and until hard work, and plenty of
work bring around the same state of things
again. Now if the foregoing is a true picture
so far as it goes who is to blame for those
changes! The employes of to-day were em
ployes not long ago, and the careful, prudent
and saving employe of to-day will be em
ployer soon hereafter. Take courage, young
men. Do the best you can in whatever
station you find yourself and your chances
are as good as the best. Such is life.

ENGIiISH BALLET GIRLS.
Tney Are Bnde and Coarte, It lit Not
Worse Than Other Girls.
Henrv Labouchere in London Truth.
Mr. Hollingshead, I see, has contributed
his views of the ballet to a contemporary.
According to him, a ballet-girl ought to I s
pretty, and it is all the better for the mana
ger if mashers come to look at her, while, if
they wait for her outside the stage-door, it is
no business of his. That a ballet-girl ought
to be fairly good looking is unquestionable,
for her mission is to exhibit the poetry of
motion and to posture in tableaux. Mothers
are not admitted behind the scenes, for there
is no room for them, and clearly the manager
cannot see all Ms ballet-girls home. It there
fore depends very much on the girl herself
what she does .out of the theatre. But the
same may be said of the girls in telegraph of
fices and in shops. I do not know how a ballet-girl
is exposed to more temptation when
dancing on a stage with the footlights be
tween her and the spectators than a shop
girl behind a counter. There are, no doubt,
girls who go into the bal'et as a means to an
end. But this is the exception. Ballet girls,
generally speaking, are relations of persons
connected with the theatrical profession. The
theatre is their world, and they are accustom
ed to its ways. At rehearsals they hang to
gether, and in their every-day garments tbey
look very much the reverse of honris. Their
chief pleasure consists in eating sweet-stuff
and cakes, on which food they like to lunch.
Their langnage to each other, and when in
the room where they all dress, is not refined,
but rather the reverse, and it probably would
surpiise a girl not to the manner born and
suddenly thrust among them ; this, however,
is the worst that can be said against them,
and when they leave the theatre they do not
loiter, because they have but one thought
to catch the 'buB.
Taking Care of Themtelvet.
Boston Letter in Kansas City Times.
Feminine Boston is attending this winter
"emergency lectures." These are, no doubt,
of great value. If a girl slip down and sprain
her ankle, instead of being obliged to wait
till some man picks her up and sends her
home in a cab, she quietly takes oft her shoe
and stocking, tucks her skirts on one side,
and performs the necessary surgical operation
on the spot. If she feel faint at a ball in
stead of looking around for a man to whom
she has been introduced, and into whose arms
she can withont immodesty fall, she quietly
sits down on the nearest chair, sends her es
cort for a few simple remedies,- and applies
them herself. Suppose during these beauti
ful snowy days she is run away with run
away with by a horse, I mean. While the
horse is tearing along looking for a conveni
ent lamp-post to use in breaking the sleigh,
this Boston girl, with the coolness of Galen
and the quiet dignity of Hippocrates, sslecta
rroni her baa some liniment, one or two
splints and a number of strips of linen, and
when at last she is thrown across the horse s
back against the side of a house, instead of
screaming or fainting, she applies the lini
ment ready in her hand, bandages up the
fractures and walks quietly home fcr send one
of the grooms for her horse. I believe later
in the season some of the lectures are to be
purely practical, and we shall be told how to
smile upon a mosquito so that he will refuse
to molest us, or how to frown upon a wasp
so that the wasp will drop dead with fright,
or how to convince oneself at a moment's no
tice that a mouse is more timid than a 160
pound girl, and quite unable to scale a dress
either on the inside or outside, unless helped
by a ladder. You see there is no nonsense
about these lectures; the girls are honestly
benefited by them, and they are becoming
more and more popular.
Vanderbllt'a Plncky Daughter.
From the Syracuse Journal.
William Seward Webb, a son of Gen. Jas.
Watscn Webb, the journalist, married Lelia
Osgood Yanderbilt, the last remaining un
married daughter of William H. Vanderbilt
the richest man in America. It was a leve
match, too, and the young pair are as hsppy
as turtle doves in each other's society. Webb
was a young sprig and Yanderbilt did rot
like him. Figuratively speaking, he kicked
him out of the house several times, but in
this instance love laughed at kicks, and
doubtless would have taken cuffs at the same
time with perfect composure. The fact is,
Mr. Yanderbilt forbade him the house, out
the young girl was in love with yonng Wtbb,
and when a young girl is in love there is one
of two things she will either get over it or
go through with it. Miss Lelia had set her
heart on tne voung aocior, miu il fun em
father had surrounded his domicile with
fence bristling with spikes, scattered broken
bottles at all the approaches and populated
the inclosure with hungry bulldogs, the Ro
meo of my story would have braved all the
dangers, with the additional one of the Yan
derbilt boot, to bask in the light of his lady
love's eyes. The old gentleman was unre
lenting, and I verily believe there would have
been an elopement but for the interference of
Mrs. Yanderbilt. She was the daughter of a
clergyman, yon know. She is good-hearted,
and sensible, and with a woman's fcresight
saw how things were going and told her hus
band that he must not try to prevent the
match. He respects his wife, who is all that
a helnmeet imulies to him. and bowed to her
will. They were married with a good deal of
pomp. Mr. Yanderbilt made the yocng man
a junior partner in a firm of brokers, to give
him a Wall street education, and then set him

Too Load Even for the French.
From a Late Paris Letter.
For the first time in many a long year tha
name of Judic has been linked to a failure.
"Elle et Lui" (He and She), the new piece at
the Palais Royal, in which the brilliant prima
donna of the operetta boards first appeared
upon the stage ot that theatre has not proved
a success. This result was largely owing to
the indecency of the incidents and the lan
guage. Not that the piece was too immoral
for Parisian tastes (I doubt, indeed, if such a
play could be written), but the indelicacy
was too flagrant and too outspoken. The
French do not like immorality openly and
coarsely expressed. They demand the dain
ty veil of wit and mirthfulness to be thrown
over the unblushing features of their comic
muse, or they will flout the lady and refuse
to recognize her. One point in the play was
an undeniable success, and that was Mme.
Judio herself. When this charming artiste
goes to America our boards will be trodden
by one of the most gifted actresses of the Pa
risian stage, which is so rich in feminine tal
eut. Her toilets were superb, and one walk
ing costume deserves special mention. It was
in seal-brown velvet and satin, the dolman
shaped cloak with long ends being entirely
composed of golden-brown beads, trimmed
with beaded lace and lined throughout with
tea-rose satin. The bonnet was an exquisite
little structure in brown velvet and beads to
