The Banda Boosa, which appears at the Hyperion to-night, will arrive here this morning on the 9:10 train from Hartford. The Roma Military band and Red Shirt society will meet them at the depot and escort them around Ithe city. The race for the mayoralty of Greater tNew York has been watched with great interest In this city. Crowds of old and vmintr men thronged the streets last right, all eager to hear the returns. Louis E. Stoddard, son of Ezeklel G. Stoddard, was yesterday appointed captain of the Yale second eleven. On exhibition at Hotchkiss' hardware Btore in Ansonia, yesterday, was email branch or bush to which are at tached over 1,400 oysters of this year's Bet, which, if they had been allowed to mature, would have made about three barrels of oysters. The branch lay in a bed and every inch of it is covered with small oysters, making a sight Tarely seen except at the shore. It was brought out from New Haven yester iday morning by Engineer Sanford. The Ansonia Sentinel yesterday Says: Mrs. George W. Scoble of Titus ville, Fla., started, yesterday noon with her three children for her sunny home on Indian river. They have been north ever since the middle of May, Mrs. Scoble came to New Haven for medical care and was virtually a physi cal wreck. She now returns, after grave operation, sure of restored health, Dr. George L. Beardsley has accepted her earnest request to visit her family In January, and he is looking ahead for a delightful outing in the land of fruit and flowers. u. b. a. rs. MElllUEN FLKLD. AT YALE The Hlllhouse high school and the JMeriden high school football teams will meet at the Yale field Saturday, No vember 6, to play in the semi-finals of the championship series of the Connect icut Interscholastic Football associa tion. For several years past the support accorded high school athletics by the people of New Haven has been exceed ingly poor. Perhaps this has been caused as much by the weakness of the teams as by the lack of interest shown Jiy the town people. This year, how ever, there is no reason why more in terest should not be manifested, as the Hillhouse team is an exceptionally strong one and, if well supported, may be expected to make a strong fight for the championship of the state. Much enthusiasm has been aroused In Hillhouse by her signal victory over rVVaterbury high school last Saturday and a large attendance is looked for on November 6, as the game between Mer- Jden high school ana the local high (school will in all probability be the closest fought contest and the best ex hibition of football given in this state by scholastic teams for many years. The probable line-up of Hillhouse is as follows: Left end, Benham; left tackle, Hart; left guard, Ferris; center, Ad ams; right guard, Kaerhle; right tackle, Cowies; right end, Osborn or Kennedy; quarter-back, Morris (captain); right half-back, Noyes; left half-back, R. Hart; full-back, Beecher. The game trill be called at 10;3Q a. m. WALLisuruitn xnws' The bills are out announcing the opening game of basket ball In the ar mory on Saturday evening, November 13, when the national champions, the New Britain regulars, will play the Walllngfords. The game will be an ex citing one and will be largely attended. The Davis family of New Haven, in musical specialties, will be the attrac tion at the T. A. B.'s fair this evening. The patrons at the opera house, Mon day evening, were disappointed and disgusted at the exhibition given by the "Enemies for Life" company, and it should be said that Manager Wil kinson is not responsible for the failure of the company to please, as he sup posed he was booking a first class com pany. All bills against the borough should have been handed in last evening to Clerk Hale, as the accounts for the year closed. Louis Dondero has sold out his fruit business on Main street to his brother Frank. The rainfall here for October was 27-100 inches. The water commissioners have voted to extend the water main on Ivy street 400 feet and put in a four-inch pipe. There were eight deaths In town dur ing the month of October. Hugh McGahie and Mrs. Adeline Brooks were married Monday evening. Rev. Henry Stone officiated. It is now settled that Paugh pond will be stocked with lake trout, as the necessary money, $100, has already been subscribed. John S. Lane & Son expect to start work this morning, if the weather is favorable, on the macadam on South Colony street and will rush the work along to complete it before the allotted time, November 15. DEATH OF LEWIS W. TURNER OF YALESVILLE. Lewis W. Turner, who died yesterday at his home in Yalesvlile, had been in failing health for a year. He was con scious until near the end, and all the arrangements were made by. him for the details of the funeral and other af fairs.

He was widely known as an inventor, and his inventions covered from twenty to twenty-five different articles. His chief invention was the Turner heater, and he is best known throughout the coun try by that Invention. Some five years ago the' Bristol Turner Heater compa ny was formed, doing business in Bris tol, and in which the deceased was a stockholder. Besides a widow, he leaves four sons and a daughter.

YOUNG MEN'S REPUBLICAN CLUB. Election Returns and an Entertainment Last Night. At the Young Men's Republican club hall last night the election returns were read, but very little enthusiasm was aroused owing to the fact that things were not moving the right way. The Davis family ventertained the audience with singing and dancing, and Profes sor Arnold gave a sleight-of-hand per formance. ARMORY NOTES. The Sarsfield Guard had its regular drill in the armory last night. The re cently elected Captain Donovan was in charge. This evening the annual inspection of all the companies in the city will be conducted by Brigadier General Frost and staff. The public is invited to witness the same. NEGUS DIDN'T SAIL.

Of their marvelous mathematical pre cision and ability to count, no doubt can exist in the mind of any one who has over visited Mandalay, in Upper Burmah. There large forests of teak are cultivated by the government for building purposes, and the squai-ed tim bers are placed and secured one above another till a raft is formed to float down the Irrawaddy for conveyance to various stations. Elephants do the whole of this work. They convey the enormous loge down to the water's edge and pile them one above another, both lengthwise and across, till a per fect cube is formed. They show an in telligence and Interest in their work that seems human, as any eye-witness can affirm whwo has watched an ele phant at his loading, and then has seen him move a few paces to one side, in or der to Judge of the effects of his work. If the appearance of the heap is not quite symmetrical two elephants force the logs one way or .the other with their trunks till they get the desired re sult, and the perfect evenness and sym metry of the finished cube is astonish ing. They never miscalculate the num ber required for each cube, and never overweight it. In 1870 a near relative of mine was head of the Indian military olice, and his winter circuit comprised the Looshal country and hill tracts. Herds of wild elephants abounded in the district, which contained two im portant Keddahs. The greater part of our tour was made by water and once we were de tained several days in the bed of a riv er, through the insufficiency of water for the draft of our boats. Some of them lay high and dry, but the office boat, which consisted of a single cabin with large doors fore and aft, was in the stream. My friend sat In his cabin, absorbed in official correspondence, while we explored the shores. Sudden ly looking up, he was dismayed to find a herd of about forty wild elephants, headed by a vicious-looking leader, gazing steadily at the boat and Its soli tary occupant. Stout soldier as he was, he watched the leader with considera ble trepidation, for on his action de pended that to be adopted by the herd. To his immense relief, after a trumpet or two, the leader turned disdainfully and crossed the stream. He breathed a sigh of relief, and had forgotten his lucky escape In the absorption of work when, swish! through the cabin came dash after dash of water. On the op posite side Btood the leader and his herd, with well-filled trunks. One fater the other administered the shower bath and then retreated, leaving my friend thoroughly ducked and very rueful over the damp condition of his government papers and surroundings, but thankful for his escape from a worse fate than a wetting. The prime minister of Nepal and the court were at that time In holy Hardwar in order to bathe in the sacred Ganges, and perform their pil grimage to the "Hur Ki Pyree," or "steps to heaven," and for their bene fit the elephants were made to go in procession through the sacred town. Can any child picture a procession of one hundred and fifty tame elephants in single file, headed by Bijli, and with Naraln bringing up the rear? It was truly a grand sight. They covered a mile and a quarter of road, and were as orderly as soldiers In a marching regi ment. Through the town they marched, each beast in its place, In no way dis concerted by the populace or by the screaming children, who joined in sing ing their nursery rhymes at each turn of the road. They think that Gune1 shin, the god of wisdom, has his exist ence in an elehant's body, and so they venerate the colossal beast immensely. Their little voices, pitched at the high est, send out the couplet: Elephant, oh elephant, give us a hair of your tall! Or, instead thereof, a sword of gold! It was aquaint, queer sight! The old town with Its mosques and mina rets; the "sacred stairs of Vishnu," leading down to the blue water's edge; the rlests on the steps in gay Bulphur colored garments, feeding the sacred fish, while the sacred monkeys were swarming everywhere, swinging from branch to branch of the trees, feeding on the housetops and screaming and playing. Below -marched undisturbed the imposing procession of elephants, all bent on obedience, and wending their way, regardless of all distrac tions. Mrs. Marie A. Mills in St. Nich olas.
