Cars and Wires Bothered by Snow and Ice. The most typical New England win ter weather descended upbn this city while it slept Thursday night and car peted the streets and fields with five or six inches of snow. . Changing into rain and sleet In the morning, a coating of Ice covered everything. When the storm cleared late yesterday afternoon and the sun came but, trees, fences, wires and houses were ridged with crystal, making It a world beautiful. But there Is another side to the tale. The high winds, the sleet, ice and snow made much trouble throughout this re gion. The trolley service was severely handicapped early in the day, the ice on the wires causing more trouble than the snow on the tracks. Superintend ent Judge ordered out six plows, five sweepers and a sand car very early, but It was some time before the roads were all cleared up. Cars on the Derby .line were stalled for an hour In the Derby hills, where the snow had drifted badly. Edgewood avenue, Mt. Carmel and Branford cars were run with gneat difficulty and they were not traveling on time until nearly noon. At 8 o'clock the wind blew down a wire at Klllam's gate, Short Beach, holding up traffic all morning ,ln that direction. The steam railroad cars were also hindered by the storm and were all be hind time. Suburbanites also found themselves cut off from telephone ser vice. The change from snow to rain, while a benefit to trolley and railroad traffic, made walking very disagreeable, and was typical sloppy weather. Shipping was hindered by the Btorm, and boats hung to their ports during the day. The telephone poles and wires all suf fered severely. At Oak street and Wln throp avenue a pole came down, while on Howard avenue near Bay View park, at Klmberly avenue and Howard, on Chapel between Hotchkiss and Sher man, on Ferry street and in various places wires came down. Altogether the storm was the truest exampJe of winter that has been pre sented so far this winter. The storm cost the city about $500. The work of removing the snow was startetl prompt ly yetserday.

The set of rules is, however, likely to bo adopted to-day. Walter Camp will, as usual, represent Yale. It is stated that the eligibility rules discussed by Yale, Harvard and Prince ton here Wednesday would not be ac tually reported at the conference to day, which concerns itself with tech nical playing rather than with eligibil ity affairs, but the changes tentative ly agreed upon here will be discussed Informally, It Is quite likely.'. NO PERMIT FOR BABY. Man Who Burled Child Arrested for Fallureto Secure One. By direction of County Health Offi cer Hoadley, Henry Smith, of Squan tuck, was arrested yesterday, charged with the burial of the baby of Mary Mazor without a burial permit.

Smith's house and will recover. Friends of Mr. Smith are indignant at his arrest.' The case has been ad journed two wesks. "NONE ARlB" IS GOOD. All the friends of liberty of speech owe gratitude to Professor Lounsbury of Yale for his defense In Harper's Magazine of the use of "none" as the subject of the plural verb. What idiot preclslonlst It was that started the movement to schoolmaster the use of "none" out of existence w do not know, but this effort has had a deplor able degree of success. An awful ex ample ought to be made of some of the grammarians who try to make lan guage conform to rules Instead of mak ing rules conform to language. It will take years to untwist the tongues of worthy people who have compelled themselves to say "none Is," when their congenial Impulse was to say "none are." SHOOTING MATCH AT BOSTON.

An Oft-Repeated Statement About ' Wagner Music Is Contradicted. A contralto with great range should not attempt to sing mezzo soprano roles.'for the proper field for her voice Is sufficiently ample, and, by avoiding the mezzo field, she will conserve her voice to a great age, as witness Ama- lia Joachim, says Madame Schumann Helnk In Success Magazine. Let me here, for the first time, contradict the oft-repeated statement that Wagner is ruinous io the voice. I myself began my career a a grand opera singer at the age of seventeen. I have been be fore the public for the last twenty seven years, and In that time have un dergone all the hardships of poverty and have fought my way upward against overwhelming odds. Fifteen years of my career were spent In Ham burg, where I sang grand opera, comic opera and musical farce; where I sang In concerts; where I played straight comedy, or darmatic or tragic' roles; and where beside, want put me to the necessity of giving vocal instruction to eke out my existence and provide for my numerous dependents. During the past seventeen years I have sung the great roles of Wagner no one more so than myself and my voice to-day is better than it ever was before. But, I ask, will a tender plant endure and thrive in ground that nature has meant for it? Certinly not. So, also, has nature put bounds to the voice, and he or she who fails to recognize those boundaries must suffer for it. No voice that is founded on proper principles and that is possessed by one Who really "knows how to sing" need fear injury within its proper limits, be the composer Wagner or anybody else.
