Tlinrtdi-us K:. Dnnuflly,
Thaddeus E. Donnelly died at his
home, 38 Webster street, Thursday af
ternoon. He had been ill only a short
time. He was thirty-eight years old
and had been in. business for twelve
years. He leaves a widow and two
boys, aged eight and five years. Mr,
Donnelly was a member of Court Elm
City, F. of A., and of the Emmet club,
The deceased was a brother-in-law of
the late John P. Carney, and is the fifth
member of that family to die within a
comparatively short time. About two
years ago the daughter of James F,
Carney passed away, and the mother,
stricken with grief, failed and died not
long after. Her death was a shock to
the whole family. She was a sister of
Mr. Donnelly and was dearly beloved
by all. A few months after her death
John P. Carney passed away, and laat
Saturday his brother, James F. Carney,
was buried. Mr. Donnelly's wife, a sis
ter of the late Mr. Carney, was terribly
grief-stricken and is now dangerously
ill from the shock. On Thursday her
SENSIBLE CHRISTMAS PRESENTS.
Extraordinary Values in Gloves, Slip
pers and Boots at Cosgroves.
One of the most sensible presents that
one can make for Christmas and one
that Is. always appreciated Is something
In the shoe'line, such as a pair of slip
pers, shoes or rubber boots. To one
contemplating a present of this kind
the shoe firm of M. E. Cosgrove, lo.
45 Church street, is offering by far the
most extraordinary inducements in
this line that can be found. By great
foresight and discretion in purchasing
they are enabled to offer their custom
ers the best valuables in leather goods
of any shoe firm in the city. The
whole of their immense stock was pur
chased before the rise in leather goods.
and the firm announces that their cus
tomers are to reap the benefit. They
have on hand a splendid stock of slip
pers, Bhoea and rubber boots, but al-
though even the basement of the store
Is packed full of these goods the store
contains but a small portion of the Im
mense amount that they purchased,
Goods In every line are being sold at
unheard of prices, and judging from
the run which Is being made upon the
store they will fully need all of the
big stock to meet the demand. AS
large as the store's Christmas trade has
been In previous years, this year's pat
ronage completely eclipses all.
BUSY GUN WORKS.
A Hartford despatch yesterday says:
"An order has been received from the
war department by the Gatllng Gun
company of this city for a large num
ber of the improved guns to be used In
the army and navy. Work Is being
rushed upon them as they are to be de
livered to tha government as soon as
"Shipments of the Colt automatic
machine gun are being made all over
the world, the largest orders coming
from the British government for use In
the Boers war, It Is understood that
the British government has offered to
take all of these guns the factory can

TALKED WITH THE COURT.
Economical Mrs. Baisden Didn't Want
Hartford, Dec. 8. Mrs. Baisden of
Merlden, wife 6f Henry Baisden, asked
permission to talk with Judge Rora
back previous to the opening of court,
to-day. It appears that she is an ap
plicant for a divorce and she asked the
judge If she brought her witnesses to
court and proved the charges she al
leges of habitual intemperance, she
could dispense with the services of an
attorney. The court told her if she
wanted a divorce she would have to
procure an attorney.

PROFESSOR BRASTOW TO ACT
As College Pastor at Yale Occasionally.
The college daily paper yesterday
morning printed the announcement that
the Rev. Dr. Lewis O. Brastovv had
been appointed college pastor.
It develops that the announcement
is premature. President Hadley yes

XAXUAN HASKELL VOLE.
Ilia Tribute to the r Work by MIm
Peinbertou, Alletle of the Late Confed
erate GriieruJ Prmberton,
Nathan Haskell Dole has an appreci
ative and luminous tribute of the new
book "Stephen Black," (published by
George W. Jacobs & Co., Philadelphia),
in the Boston Evening Transcript. It la
very happily headed "A New Novel
with a Purpose," and gives a well-merited
tribute to a book of 'exceptional
strength and power. It is as follows:
. "May I be allowed a few lines' space
in your valuable paper to call the at
tention of thoae Interested, first in good
stories?, secondly, In the educational
problems of the south, and thirdly, in
the settlement of the great race difficul
ty, to a new novel by a comparatively
new writer, issued by a new publishing
If "Stephen tha Black" were merely a
good novel I should not feel justified in
asking this unusual privilege; but it is
something more. The author, Miss Car
oline H. Pemberton, of Philadelphia, is
a niece of the late Confederate General
Pemberton, the defender of Vlcksburg.
She has visited the Black Belt, learned
something, and she pictures the situa
tion as it is. The story is not long
only 252 small pages but it imp in it
the lnevltableness of great art; there is
not a false note in it from beginning to
end. It has humor; the scenes in the
colored church are rich in genuine hu
mor, just tinged, as all humor should be,
with the iridescent hue of pathos; but
the plot is real, is tragic, Js dramatic,
and appeals to the highest instincts of
the reader. One hint at the possibili
ties of the motive may be given:
Stephen the Black is of mixed ancestry,
as Miss Pemberton expresses it. ' The
white blood was a pure, clear Anglo
Saxon current bearing the virtues and
vices of a Revolutionary hero, a Mary
land Judge and a North Carolina plant
er. . . , In mind, temperament and
sensibility he is the sum total of his
white ancestors, but he Is a white man'
shut up in a black skin." The heroine,
on the other hand, "outwardly is a
white woman, but Inwardly the fhbrlc
of her nature is woven of African chir
acterlBtlcs; her clinging tenderness, her
devoted faith, her poetic dreaminess are
qualities bequeathed to her by her black
ancestors." A third character of equal
Importance Is the son of a southern
planter, an Impetuous, wilful, 'sensual
man, not altogether bad, with generous
qualities, and thoroughly determined to
make Theresa his housekeeper, with all
that that means; but Stephen saves her
by a sudden enforced marriage. Steph
en is the graduate of a sectarian pchool.
bent on raising his people. He goes to
the Black Belt, and the struggle he has
is graphically told told with humor,
intelligence, intensity. Indeed, the
whole book Is tremendously Intense,
and the denouement equals anything in
Uncle Tom's Cabin." One forgets it is
novel "burdened with a moral pur
pose," which, as tne autnor says in a
private note, "is the thing the literary
If the "moral purpose" is that of help
ing sixty millions of people to under
stand the conditions that weigh on the
lives of ten millions; If the "moral pur
pose" is that of raising the arms of
such men as Booker T. Washington; If
the "moral purpose" is that of bringing
the light of common sense to the treat
ment of a disease, the chief danger of
which lies in shutting our eyes to it;
then the "moral purpose" which Miss
Pemberton never preaches, but only Il
lustrates, would lift into vital influence
a story a thousand times less Interest
ing, beautiful and dramatic. I repeat,
'Stephen the Black" Is not of great pro
portions, It can be read at a sitting; It
is perfectly free from any flourish of
fine style, It is almost austerely concise;
yet there are pictures which glow with
the beauty of a Southern landscape, and
the narrative works up from climax to
climax to Its sudden and unexpected
ending, with a skill worthy of all praif?.
The passions of race, hatred boiling into
mob violence, the passions of overmas
terlngsex treated with a noble power,
a vestal sanctity the passions of the
born leader of men blocked and then
overflowing all bounds In their splendid
but chastened, God-directed forcerul
nesr, bound to save and lift and carry
away the obstacles or ignorance aim
prejudice and century-old degradation
and stolidity are portrayed in this
wonderful little story. It ought to go
from hand' to hand as "David Harum
as done with a different purpose. And
as it has the misfortune to appear with
the imprint of a new and comparatively
unknown house, I crave the privilege of
thus proclaiming its merits, hoping that
those that are moved to get it ana react
It will feel a part of the glow of enthu
siasm which moves me, and will not be
checked by what a cooler critic would
call my extravagance. Even If I exag
gerate its merits as a story, no words I
could say could possibly exaggerate its
beneficent puropse the beneficent pur
pose that makes Booker Washington
the prophet of his people, the esteemed
adviser standing between that con
fronted racee. The purpose of both
the man and the book-r-is to educate
both racee. Education is not to fill
black brains with Latin and Greek, but
ise leadership is to educate, to lead
out from their degradation poor whites
and poor blacks and make mutuauy
helpful the eternally intertwined forces
that have for nearly three centuries
made our fair southern land their thea
ter and battlefield.

, CHAIR FOR BORES.
Its Owner Declares It Saves Him Time
and Considerable Money. ,
"The time of almost every man In ac
tive life la terribly taxed by useless vis
itors,'.' said a busy Neve Orleans ship
per to a reporter of the Times-Democrat
of that city, "I mean people who come
on foolish errands, tedious friends who
drop in to chat and don't know when to
go, and the small army of agents, can
vassera, solicitors and trie like, who In
the aggregate consume many precious
hours every day. I have a scheme for
disposing of such bores that works to
"The whole secret lies in that chair
beside my roll-top desk. It la very in
nocent looking, as you will observe, but
it has ime marked peculiarities. To
begin with, it is so placed that whoever
sits in it faces a flood of light, while I
myself am In the shadow. Then, again,'
the back is very straight and very nar
row; it ha no arms, and the seat pitch
es slightly forward, the front being half
an Inch lower than the rear.
"It is utterly Impossible for any bora
to sit in that chair four consecutive
minutes. With female book agents it is
peculiarly efficacious, for the simple
reason that such callers are generally
thirty-five or over, and no woman of
that age can sit quiet in the glaring
daylight under the calm scrutiny of a
man in the shadow. The coolest of
them lose their self-possession, twist,
wriggle and soon fly the spot. Then,
again, the straight back and absence of
arm prevents the occupant from aisum
" f ace'ul sidelong attitude with-
out which no woman is able to converse.
"With male bores it Is equally deadly.
All garrulous men either tilt back when
they are talking or lean forward Im
pressively with their elbows on their
arms. The two poses seem to be essen
tial to a flow of language, and neither
of them is possible here. When they
find that the legs are attached to the
floor and search In vain for a rest for
their elbows, they lose the thread of
their tory, look miserable for a mo
ment, and then beat a retreat. The
pitch of the seat simply adds to the
general discomfort of the machine.
One flnda one's self, continually sliding
off without knowing why. I wouldn't
take anything for that chair. It has
saved me thousands of dollars."
