What is, without doubt, the most re markable piece of woodwork ever seen In Waterbury has just been completed by Charles F. Adam of ST South Main street. It Is a table about a yard square and comprised of 80,000 pieces of wood. This Is Mr. Adam's second attempt at making an Inlaid table, the first having been wrecked In transpor tation, and this one was Intended for exhibition at the world's fair, but he could not get It done In time, lie start ed it In 1891, and has worked on it at odd times since, In all a matter uf 8,364 hours of actual labor. In the centre of the revolving top Is a good representation of the white house at Washington, surmounted by the stars and stripes. The border of the top Is a handsome piece of mosaic work, and along the four sides are shown Washington's birthplace In Vlr ginla, his familiar Mount Vernon home, the birthplace of Grant In Ohio, and the house where he attended school as a boy. Tastefully Interspersed with these are many quaint desingns that taken as a whole, make up a pattern which has very much the appearance of a production of the weaver's art. The support consist of two pieces of oak placed together in the form of a' letter X and stood upright, cut out in scroll and with a graceful column after the Corinthian order at each corner.. On each face of these oak supports are two panels, making sixteen in all, on which are Shawn trees, and birds and leaves of the different kind of plant growth until the wonder is that a mans' patience should ever hold out to complete such a task. On the lower part also, are shown the American eagle with spread wings and clutching a cluster of arrows In Its talons, a deer's head, stork, sparrow and two roosters; Washington's Valley Forge headquarters; the birthplace of Lincoln in Kentucy; Ford's theatre (where Lincoln was shot) and the house near by where he died;, the birthplace of Columbus near Genoa, Italy, on a background of dark rosewood; a clois ter in Spain visited by Columbus; the ship Constitution, Libby prison, a clus ter of daisies, lilies, Scotch thistle and twenty-six varieties of leaves, with ferns, fruits, etc. Waterbury's Mason ic temple is also done in nice shape, as Is also the house of J. S. Elton. There is nothing In the nature of a paint, dye or stain of any sort In the whole work, the various effects being brought out by the natural colors of the different woods, of which there are seventy-three kinds in the table.' Some of the woods are very ancient and some of special hlstorlo interest. There are pieoes from India and a mahogany snuff-box that was made from the old Constitution Mr. Adam has worked Into his table. Relics from the Johnstown flood are also there. When asked how he knows there are 80,000 pieces in the table, Mr. Adam re plies that he counted them as he put them in. It is beyond question a won derful production, graceful in propor tions, substantial in build and finished off as nicely as the highest priced piano. Mr. Adam was born In Berlin about thirty-seven years ago. By,, profession he is a woodworker, and at present he Is employed at general carpenter work with the Waterbury Brass company. An admirer offered Mr, Adam $200 for; the table the other day, but It is not for sale at any such price as that Wa terbury American. . . TBE WELLS TABLET.

The production of Stirling Coyne's old English comedy, "Everybody's Friend," down for December 6 at the Hyperion, will doubtless prove one of the most Interesting theatrical events of the season. Good English comedy is too seldom heard in these days of farce, and the play Is comedy of tha highest order. The distribution of characters and en tire business under the direction of Mrs. Laurens-Lennox, who has had a life-long experience of the stage and its technique is capital each one's part fitting him Ilka a glove. The cast toeaded by Frank Dlckerman as "Felix Featherly," Is as follows: May ReynoIds",fts "Mrs. Featherly," Mr. Leavenworth as "Major De Boots," Mrs. Laurens-Lennox as "Mrs. De Boots," Miss Feuchtwanger as "Mrs. Swartffown," Mr. Prince as "Icebrook," Miss Esther Embler as "Fanny" and Mr. Gervalse as "Trap." The stage set ting will be the, best seen in Mew .Ha ven, and something novel in the way of a ballroom scene may be looked for. Many guests dacing and promenading will make up a brilliant finale. Sale of seats now going on. The epilogue will be spoken In all its greatness. Dr. Lee Again Under Arrest. Dr." J. Edward Lee, already notorious for his two trials and acquittals for abortion, has been arrested on a bench warrant, charged ' with the murder of Maggie SchloSa. This comes right on the heels of the news that the state's appeal has been sustained by the su preme court of errors In the case in which Dr. Lee is charged with the mur der of Mrs. Mfller. The warrant Was issued by Judge George W. Wheeler at the request of State Attorney Doollttle. It charges Dr. Lee with the murder of Maggie Schloss on August 21, 1893. Dr. Lee and Dr. Whltten were arrest ed soon after the girl's death, charged with having performed an abortion on her. The physicians were tried before Judge David Callahan In the city court. They were defended by an array of lawyers, including the famous William C. Case. After a sensational trial which lasted until the latter part of October Judge Callahan acquitted both doctors. The principal witness for the state In the case was 'a boy ' named Willie Cash,, who confessed that he had ruined Mag gie Schloss. At the time of their acquittal It was rumored that State Attorney Doollttle was going to have them rearrested on bench warrants. Nothing came of It, however, and every one supposed the case hdd been dropped. Not long after the Schloss case Dr. Lee was arrested for causing the death of Mrs. George Miller by criminal mal practice In the superior court he was acquit ted, but State Attorney Doollttle ap pealed to the Bupreme court Dr. Lee has been under bonds of 35, 000 since his arrest In the Mra Miller case. His bondsman Is Captain Hodg son, proprietor of the Tontine, hotel In thtaotty, . " Hodgson has been thinking seriously of surrendering Lee slrtce the supreme court handed down Its decision, and would probably have done so In a day or two. ' Btate Attorney Doollttle made appli cation Monday to Chief Justice Andrews for a special term of the superior court and- It was granted. - Judge Wheeler was assigned, and yesterday morning Mr. Doollttle made application for Dr. Lee's arrest on the charge of murder. The motion was Immediately granted and Sheriff TomUnson was sent to ar rest Lee. He found him at his apart ments on Chapel street and arrested him. " - . .'', " " ' " 'Bonds' were fixed at. 85,000. In de fault of them the dOctor was taken to jaU. . ' .- . ' Mr. Doollttle stated that the reason tor Dr. Lee's arrest on the charge of killing Maggie Schloss was that much new evidenoe had been discovered since the city court trial. Dr. Lee telegraphed to an uncle In New York and hopes to get bonds. Fire Cansed by Gasoline.

The Course of 1'rloes was Irregular on the Exchange. New York, Dec. 4. The course of prices at the stock exchange to-day was very irregular, but an undertone of strength was noted. At the opening there were moderately heavy sales of the grangers, the result of the poor statements of the St. Paul and Rock Island for November. London was a seller of the former, the foreigners evi dently fearing a suspension of divi dends next spring. St. Paul fell 1 to 61, Burlington and Quincy to 69, Rock Island to 60, and Northwest 1 to 98. The decline led to purchases to cover short sales, and the early loss was more than recovered, except in the case of St. Paul and Northwest, which rallied to 581499, respectively. After the grangers the Industrials were most prominent In the dealings. American Sugar dropped to 82 and later advanced gradually to 8685H The dividend matter is much discussed In speculative circles. Usually well in formed people still incline to the opin ion that the Havemeyer Interest will succeed in bringing about a reduction in the rate. While the dividend meet ing is scheduled for to-morrow, it Is likely that action will be postponed un til the effect of President Cleveland's message on congress Is known. Chica go Gaa gave every evidence of covering by an important short interest. New firms were employed to buy in the atock, which rallied from 69 to 72 71. The general list, after opening weak, rallied and closed strong. Sterling ex change was not as strong as on yester day, and money was decidedly easier, a broker offering $2,000,000 at 1 per cent, on call. The report of Secretary Car lisle had no influence whatever on spec ulation, which closed strong with prices anywhere from to 2 per cent, high er than on yesterday. , American Tobacco fell 14, St. Paul 1V4 and Bay State Gas per cent. The bond market was dull and high er. Sales were 3894,000. Following are the closing prices re ported by Prince & Whltely, bankers and brokers, 46 Broadway, New York, and 15 Center Street, New Haven: ' Bid. Asked .
