MAY ACCEPT THE CALL.
The Rev. Mr. Kimber Has Been Called
. , to Oxford.
Seymour, Aug. 16. The Rev. Robert
B. Kimber, rector of Trinity church.
has been tendered an offer by the ves
try of St. Peter's church, Oxford, to
accept the rectorship of that parish,
which was made vacant by the resig
nation of the Rev. L. F. Morris June 1,
after having served that parish faith
fully for about ten years. The salary
offered to the Rev. Mr. Kimber is $150,
but it is understood that the diocesan
missions double this amount. The arch
deaconry of New Haven Is reported to
favor the Rev. Mr. Kimber accepting
the office, as It would probably be the
wisest thing the Oxford parish could
do.

has made to the proposal. He will
probably accept the Oxford parieh

his own parish.

THE DOG AND THE TRAIN.
Thrown Into the Manhan, the Former
Swam Ashore and Went On. ,
Just as the train came down from
Wlnsted at 5:30 Sunday afternoon, Au
gust 15, a big black dog that had been
running about on the Manhan meadows
looking for his master, who had been
driven away by the sudden shower,
took a notion to do "his running on the
railroad track. He bounded onto the
track perhaps 200 yards from the train
and directly in its path. He seemed
utterly bewildered and did the very
last thing in the world that he should
have done, rushing up the track be
tween the rails to meet the locomotive.
Spectators had not long to wait to
see what would happen, but the result.
was a surprise, although perhaps the
dog was as much surprised as any of
them. There was a yelp of pain, a
brief glimpse of the dog going toward
the Klondyke region by the air line
route, a splash in the waters of the
Manhan canal and the train sped by.
That was the surprise for the dog.
Then came the surprise for the specta
tors, for that dog, that should have
been a mangled corpse with not a
whole bone in it, did not do a thing
but clamber back upon the track and
resume his wild run toward Winsted,
just as though that was his usual way
of meeting an emergency when an ex
press train disputed his right to run on
the roadbed. He was perhaps a little
more bewildered than he was previous
to the collision, but he ran on four feet
as never dog ran before, and made no
remarks about his Impressions of the
incident, if he had any. Waterbury

NORMAL SCHOOLS.
The Work that Secretary Hine Is
Doing.
Secretary C. D. Hine, of the state
board of education, is exceptionally
busy just now arranging for the coming
year at the Normal schools In Wil
limantlc, New Haven and New Brit
ain. At the Willimantic school, F. W.
Stebblns of Westfield. has been pro
moted to an instructorshlp in the scien
tific course, and E. C. Andrews of Hart
ford has been engaged to teach in the
model department. Mr. Andrews for
merly taught in Terryville and Wind
sor Locks.
No changes have been made In the
teachers' list at the New Haven school.
At New Britain there will be three
new teachers. Miss Alice deC. O'Gra
dy, who will be principal of the kinder
garten, taught for three years at Mrs.
Quincy's school in Boston, Friends'
Elementary and High school at Balti
more, and later In Montreal. She be

TOOK SULPHATE OF ZINC.
A Sensitive Naugatuck Woman At
tempts Suicide.
Naugatuck, Aug. 16. On Sunday af
ternoon Mrs. William Craig of North
Main street purchased in town two
ounces of sulphate of zinc for 10 cents.
It is alleged that ehe believed it to be
poison. At any rate, she dissolved it in
water and drank it. Sulphate of zinc
is a comparatively harmless salt, and
is frequently used internally. Taken
internally in large doses it is a poison,
but at the same time it Is an emetic.
Soon after drinking the solution, be
tween 7 and 8 o'clock last night, ehe
was seized with violent vomiting, and
eo threw the liquid up.
This has probably saved her life. A
physician was summoned, who gave
her liberal drinks of water and an an
odyne to allay possible inflammation of
the stomach. She soon got much bet
ter, but is hardly considered wholly out
of danger, as when the salt ie taken a
relapse sometimes sets in after the pa
tient is recovering.
Mrs. Craig says that she had been
much troubled because some Sunday
paper had written her up for riding a
bicycle, and some of her family had
scolded her in consequence. This had
so preyed on her mind that ehe took
the poison.
A WOODBURY WOMAN DECEIVED.
A woman, probably eighteen years of
age, called at the residence of Watson
Bunnell, a farmer in Woodbury, Satur
day morning about 10 o'clock, and ask
ed the Bunnells to bring her to this
city. The town is situated some dis
tance from the railroad, and Mrs.
Catherine Bunnell, the wife of the farm
er, consented to drive the girl to New
Haven. She hired a horse and carriage,
and the farmers' wife and her strange
companion started over the country
read to this city. They arrived here in
the afternoon, and Mrs. Bunnell drove
the girl to some part of the city in the
woods. The girl said that her uncle
lived there. Afterward Mrs. Bunnell
said the girl drove to Savin Rock,
where the girl disappeared, taking with
her the Woodbury farmer's horse and
carriage and a pocketbook belonging
to Mrs. Bunnell, which contained a
small sum of money. The matter was
reported to the police, but the officers
have not been able to trace either the
girl or the farmer's rig.

WON BY GLENCAIRN II.
Second Race for the Seawanhaka Co
rinthian Cup.
Polnte Claire, Que., Aug. 16.-10:15 a.
m. To-day's race for the Seawanhaka
Corinthian challenge cup for one-raters
was over the triangular course.
Saturday's race,' notwithstanding the
accident to Glencairn II, was pretty
generally accepted by the Canadian
yachtsmen as showing that Momo, in
a moderate breeze, Is the better boat.
Consequently, the hopes of Mr. Duggan
and the crew of the Canadian defender
fell with the wind this morning. About
7:30 o'clock the weather had become
very muggy and the wind had fallen
to less than three miles an hour. At
10 o'clock more favorable conditions be
gan to prevail. The wind had freshen
ed somewhat and was blowing from the
south at a rate of a trifle over four
miles. The weather began to clear and
the prospects of a good race began to
look brighter.
Glencairn II is none the worst for her
accident. A strip of new plank about
three feet long has replaced the hole
in her side. At 10:30 o'clock, about half
an hour before the start, the wind was
stiffening considerably, and was blow
ing about seven miles an hour, with
the prospects of growing stronger.
This, Is was thought, would favor the
Canadian boat. Momo and Glencairn
had previously arrived at Dorval in
tow, and Momo hoisted her mainsail
and proceeded under canvas to the
starting point.
The yachts started at 11:30 a. m. The
course is one and one-third miles on
each leg. The first leg is to windward.
Glencairn crossed the line first.
Glencairn passed the 1 1-3 mile mark
at 11:39, with the Momo 250 yards be
hind and to windward. The wind was
then increasing. Glencairn passed the
first buoy one and one-half minutes
ahead of the Momo.
The Glencairn turned the four-mile
buoy at 12:11 p. m., followed two min
utes later by the Momo. The wind con
fined to freshen, and at 12:14 both boats
were compelled to reef sails.
The Glenclairn rounded the first buoy
on the second round at 12:34, three min
utes 45 seconds ahead of the Momo.
The Glencairn passed the 6 2-3 mlless
buoy at 12:50, a good half mile ahead of
the Momo.
At the nine mile mark the Glencairn
was three-quarters of a mile ahead of
the Momo. The wind was then blow
ing at the rate of twenty miles an hour.
The Glencairn crossed the finish line
at 1:36, winner of the second race.
THE WHEAT MARKET.
Cuthbert & Co. say: Wheat was
strong and excited yesterday with very
active trading and sensational fluctua
tions, prices advancing 3 to 4 cents
here, and 2 to 2 at Chicago from Sat
urday's closing. September here
opened up 2 cents at 914 and later sold
at 92i, while December opened 89, or
3 cents higher, and sold up another
cent, to 90. At Chicago, prices opened
1 cents higher, it 85 for September
and 84 for December. From these quo
tations there was a sharp reaction im
mediately on realizing. This was fol
lowed later by general buying, and the
high prices were made before the end
of the first hour, September in Chicago
selling at 86, and December 84. All
the news was bullish.
Liverpool closed 1 higher, for fu
tures and Id. for spots, and Paris
wheat and flour 15 to 45 centimes high
er. The visible supply in this country
showed a decrease of 424,000 bushels.
Exporters took 25 to 30 loads here and
at the outports, and the total clear
ances for the day were 6S7.400 bushels
wheat and 787,105 corn.
In the last hour realizing sales, and
some re-selling for foreign account
caused an easing from the top of to
1 cents. The close, however, was
firm, with the sentiment still bullish on
the foreign demand and supply situa
tion. Corn was stronger and higher,
and was active, with good buying by
commission houses. Prices advanced
1 for September and cent for De
cember, but later receded on selling by
scalpers on predictions of warmer and
more favorable weather, finally closing
higher for September and to for
December. In Europe prices closed
higher.

SEWER GIVES UP MAID.
Authorities Think it May Have Been
Stolen at the Depot.
Officer Cooney of the Howard avenue
precinct yesterday morning found a
rifled United States mail pouch, which
may serve as a clue to a recent robbery.
He noticed the article protruding from
the mud where some city workmen
were cleaning out a sewer at the cor
ner of Salem street and Columbus ave
nue. John Flury, who had dug it out, said
it looked like an old sack, but the of
ficer saw a lock o'n it, and upon fur
ther Investigation found it to be a
United States mall pouch, with a slit
in one side about a foot long. He sent
It to the Howard avenue station, and
yesterday afternoon it was turned over
to the postoffice authorities. They un
licked it but could find nothing to show
where it came from. They have not
lost any pouches of late, and they are
not aware that any have been lost in
this part of the country. The postoffice
inspectors, however, will investigate the
matter. It may have been stolen from
the local depot on a delayed mail.

GOLD IN CHIHUAHUA.
New Placer Mines of Great Richness
Said to Have Been Found There.
El Paso, Tex., Aug. 16. Placer gold
mines are reported to have been found
in Chihuahua, not far from here. Dirt
has been found that pans out $1.65 to
three pans. Discoverers are getting
ready to secure their claims and per
fect their titles under the mining code
of Mexico. One man was hunting for
a person who would lend him S25 so
that he could secure his claim. He was
willing to give the lender a half interest
In the property if he would invest that
much in the claim. Gold opportunities
are cheaper in the southwest and in
northwestern Mexico than In Alaska,
Persons in search of gold can do bet
ter on a small amount of capital any
where in Arizona, Sonora, Sinaloa or
Chihuahua than in the Klondike.
