The final step in the formation of a state polo league will be taken at a meeting of the pro moters in New Haven, October 11, and the polo cranks of the state will be given a positive assurance of a win ter's sport. Eight cities will be repre sented in the league, and the backers of the game in each city are prepared to go ahead and' pay over their fees, for all arrangements have been made in all of the cities except Bridgeport arid Hartford, and the closing of negotia tions for the rinks is now but a mat ter of a few days in each place. The circuit will comprise Bridgeport, New Haven, Meriden, Hartford, Spring field, New Britain, Waterbury and Derby. The two last named places are the additions to the old state league. W. M. Harris, who will manage the local team, said this morning that he had not yet secured a rink, but that by Monday he would be in a position to announce where the games will be played. Mr. Harri3 has two places in view, but has not decided which to en gage. He is enthusiastic over the pros pect of a successful season, and says the state is polo crazy. At first there was no hope of getting Hartford to en ter the league, but when the intimation of the formation of the league reached that city the popular demand for a place in the circuit was so strong that a meeting at which all doubt was re moved was at once held. If the right arrangements can be made in this city Manager Harris will combine with L. M." Rich in the man agement of a rink in which basket ball will be played between teams from cit ies in the polo circuit and bicycle races will be conducted. Mr. Rich is confi dent of the success of such a plan, and Mr. Harris fully agrees with him. CONGREGATIONAL CLUB. Opening Meeting Will be Held Next Monday Evening.

There has been a large advance sale of seats but still desirable ones are to be ob tained.

Woodstock, Mr. Charles Mann, Mr. Riley Phillips, Miss Pauline Meehan, Mr. W. H. Myers, Mr. Ben Aubrey and Mr. Hale. A synopsis of the plot of "Penikeese" follows: Millicent Melange and An nette Trent, pupils at the Penikeese Summer School of Gastronomy, are in love respectively with Midshipman Lee Ward and Bininger Bonanza, the for mer a cadet from Annapolis, the latter a millionaire Yale student. Ward is on shore leave from the "Constitution," and Bonanza has Just arrived from New Haven on his yacht. The affec tions of the young men, however, are differently bestowed; Ward being in love with Annette and Bonanza with Millicent. Miss Tea Caddy, a profes sor of the' school, is in love with Dr. McBosh, the principal. With a keen propensity for match making, she pro poses a plan to Ward and Bonanza to disguise themselves each in the other's clothes and thus gain the affections of the girl each prefers, at the same time enlisting their services in her affair with McBosh. Bininger, while disguis ed as Ward, commits a breach of naval etiquette and is arrested and taken on board the "Constitution." He escapes, comes asore, meets Millicent and re sumes his love making. He is on the point of being again arrested when the real Lee Ward explains the situation and he is released. In the meantime Miss Tea Caddy's love affair with the doctor is not prospering. She hides the Chinaman, Mung Yew Chun, who has run away from the ship, from the cadets who are searching for him.there by earning his gratitude. This grati tude blossoms' into affection and Mung makes violent love to her, to her un speakable horror. She has a moonlight tete-a-tete with the doctor, in the most interesting portion of which Mung ap pears and attacks McBosh with Jealous fury. Mung finally succumbs to the doctor's prowess and the tete-a-tete is resumed.,,,' 'At the conclusion of Lee Ward's explanation of the change of costumes, etc., by himself and Bonanza, the two girls decide to accept the situ ation, and Miss Tea -Caddy, having won Dr. McBosh, has thus carried out her schemes to the satisfaction of every body concerned' except the Chinaman.
