A College Man's Experience. I "All through my high school course and first year in , college," writes an ambitious young man, "I struggled with my studies son a diet of greasy, pasty foods, being especially fond of cakes and fried things. My system got Into a state of general disorder and it was difficult for me to apply myself to school work with any degree of satis faction. I tried different medicines and food preparations but did not seem able to correct the difficulty. "Then my attention was called to Grape-Nuts food and I sampled it. I had to do something, so I just buckled down to a rigid observance of the direc tions on the package, and in less than no time began to feel better. In a few weeks my strength was restored, my weight had increased, I had a clearer head and felt better in every particular. My work was simply sport to what it was formerly- "My sister's health was badly run down and she had become so nervous that she could not attend to her music. She went on Grape Nuts and had the same remarkable experience that I had. Then my brother Frank, who is in the postofflce department at Washington city, and had been trying to do brain work on greasy foods, cakes and all that, joined the Grape Nuts army. I showed him what it was and could do and from a broken down condition he has developed into a hearty and effi cient man. "Besides these I could give account of numbers of my fellow students who have made visible improvement mental ly and physically by the use of this food.' Name given by Postum Co., Bat tle Creek, Mich. There's a reason. Read the little book 'Th Road to Wellville," in pkgs. al offense. He had been arrested for having policy slips on him. Judge, Mathewson ordered a plea of not guilty, and before evidence was in troduced Manning changed the plea ito guilty. On recommendation of City At torney Simpson he was fined $10 and costs of $5.54, which was paid- He was represented by Attorney Carl Mearfl. After court Manning freed his mma as follows: "Policy was an ngnt ana respectable so far as the law was con cerned," said he, "when Yale college used to run the game as a lottery, out of ; the proceeds of which the present structure was built. Now that it has gotten 'to be a poor man's game it is unlawful, as ,th,e poor man has no right to, play anthing.. The rich may gam ble in stocks .over- in Center street, wreck business enterprises and some times blows his head off ibut that is an other matter, and he is safe so iong as he doesn't play policy. My con science is perfectly clear, and I don't consider that I have done anything that I should be ashamed of-" GRAND JURY FOR FEBRUARY TERM.

ENTERTAINMENTS. Hyperloa Theateat At the Hyperion theater this evening we will have Benjamin Chapin support ed by a superb company in his new oharacter -drama, "Lincoln." This play is founded on the life of Abraham Lin coln, and should be of great interest to the public. The piece was presented in Hartford the first of this week and met with great approval from those who witnessed the performance, the Hartford papers devoting great space in their columns to the production. The cast supporting Mr. Chapin is a capahle one, and all well fitted to their respec tive parts. They are Francis McGinn, David R. Young, Malcolm Duncan, Daisy Lovering, Maude Granger, George Clarke. - Much interest is taken here in. the production as is shown by the advance sale of seats which is now progressing. "THE MOUNTAIN CLIMBER." "The Mountain Climber," which will srve to introduce . Francis Wilson at the Hyperion Saturday, February 24, is said to be a delightful farcical play with complications and situations that create no end of laughter by the many predicaments in which the character of Montague Sibsey manages to become Involved. It is a role just in Mr. Wil son's peculiar comedy vein and we can expect a most delightful evening with him. Mr. Frohman has provided an elaborate stage setting and an excep tionally strong company. Seats now selling. "THE REDSKIN." In order to establish a prior claim to the original idea of an Indian play, In wMch tl the characters are full blood ed Indians, William A. Brady will pro duce here on Monday night, February 26, at the Hyperion, his new play en titled "The Redskin." It is not the In dian of to-day that the Redskin treats, but of the strange race that the white man found when he first landed onjhts continent. It is a poetic drama,the drama of a drearri, the romantic story of which -will remind many of Longl fellow's "Hiawatha." Among the char actcrs are Tyrone Power, Edwin Arden, 'Robert Payton Carter, Lionel Adams, Catherine Gray, Bijou Fernandez, Mar ion Chapman, Margaret Kenmare, Alice Leigh, Laura Lemmars and others. The play is in fie acts, each beautifully mounted, representing spring, summer, autumn, winter, and tine Illy pool. Seat sale Friday, 9 a. m. MAXINE ELLIOTT. Miss Maxine Elliott in the successful Clyde Fitch comedy, said to be his very best, "Her Great Match," will appear at the Hyperion Tuesday and Wednes day, February 27 and 28- The coming of Miss Elliott is undoubtedly one of the principal dramatic events of the season. This will be her first local ap pearance in this play. It is worthy of not that she brings with her the identl cal New York cast which appears at the Criterion theater during the long run of the comedy. Manager Charles Dillingham decided to surround his beautiful star with just as strong a company for her tour as he supplied for the New York run, and with that end in mind he engaged all the players for two years. Seat sale Saturday, 9 a, m. New Haven Theater. "A CROWN OF THORNS." "A Crown of Thorns" which has proven one of the most deserving sue cesses of the season is announced at the New Haven theater for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, February 26, 27 and 28, and at the matinee Wednes day.' The play is free from all melo dramatic conventionalities and is I welcome relief after the seemingly in exhaustive supply of Immorally sug gestive plays ithat have been nauseating the theatergoer for a few seasons past, "A Crown of Thorns" is a drama of more than ordinary merit; it is bright and clean, not .overdrawn and hasi distinct vein of comedy which brightens lit wonderfully. It contains scenes of In tense heart Interest, but there is a de elded absence of maudlin sentiment and heart-rending pathos. "A Crown of Thorns" will be found a real novelty in comparison to many plays now be fore the public. The company Is t competent one, and the production will be staged with siv massive and beauti ful scenic sets together with a number of mechanical and electrical surprises, "MORE TO BE PITIED-' The sensational musical melo-drama "More to be Pitied Than Scorned," by Charles E. Blaney, which will be pre sented at ithe New Haven theater on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, March 1, 2, and 3, with usual matinee Wednesday, is said to be one of the strongest productions on the road this season. It is claimed that the play is one of intense dramatic action, replete with thrilling climaxes and sensational episodes; things of a startling nature happening in rapid succession. While the main theme of the play dealing as it does fith the love of an actor for the daughter of a clergyman Is Intensely dramatic, yet there Is an amazing amount of good clean comedy and sing ing and dancing numbers by a chorus of sixteen. ; The moment a man perceives that he has been fleeced then he begins to feel sheepish, showing how strong Is the law of association of ideas Puck.

Eaton, which occurred at her home In North Haven at 8:62 o'clock yester day morning, a great loss is sustained not only by her family, on whom she lavished tender care, but by the com munity In which she had always Ibeen a strong factor in the public good. Mrs. Eaton, who was fqrty-stx years of age has been a patient sufferer for about a year, and had been confined to her bed for several weeks. Her great strength of character and nobil ity of mind shone through her last days, when with Christian endurance she waited her summons home. She was the daughter of William Miles and Luoretia Granniss of East Haven, where she was born October 17, 1859. She had been an active member of the North Haven Congregational church and of the King's Daughters. As a member of the North Haven grange she so distinguished herself that for two years' she was made Pomona of the state grange. Besides her husband she is survived (by two daughters, Cora, a graduate of the Emerson college of Oratory, and Marie, who is away at school, and also a brother, W. E- Granniss, and a sis ter, Mrs. J. T. Frost. Kindness of heart end desire for th publlo good wre some of her chief characteristics, but underlying her whola character was her devotion to her home and family. The funeral will be held Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock from her late residence. Rev. F B. Doane of the North Haven Congregational church will officiate, as sisted by Rev. Mr. Wells of the Mon- towese Baptist church and Rev. Mr. Countryman of North Branford, chap lain of the stats grange. MUTUALIZATION THE CHIEF RECOMMENDATION (Continued from First Page.) ance company, the committee found that its transactions with Andrew Hamilton 8howd extraordinary abuses, and that the statement sent from Paris by Hamilton was without suitable, spe cifications. In taking np the Equitable Life As surance society the committee telis of the dissensions last February which resulted in the reorganiiatlon of that society, and in the disclosures which brought about the legislative inquiry. The syndloate operations of the Equita ble and James It. Hyde, and the rela tions between the society and Kuhn, Loeb & Co. as brought.out In testimony before the committee, are referred to at considerable length, as also is the $50, 000,000 Union Pacific', pool under the management of E. H. JJarrlman, Jacob H. Schlff and James Sttllman- Partici pation in this pool by the Equitable, the committee holds, ' was clearly an Improper transaction for an insurance company. , Former Governor Odell's shipbuilding suit against the Mercantile Trust com pany, which was settled by that com pany, is considered, the committee hold ing that the circumstances of the intro- duction of the Ambler bill might have been sufflclont to induce that settlement on the part of th offioers of the trust company through fear that proceedings Inimical to its interests might be taken if those who could inflate them were not appeased. The committee report contains a full statement of loans made to E. H. Har- riman and Kuhn, Loab & Co. by the Equitable. The payment of $20,000 a year to Ssnator Depew by the Equita ble, the committee holds, was not war ranted, the testimony as to the ser vices rendered by Senator Depew not appearing to be sufficient for such pay ment. The committee also sets forth that it does not appear what services were rendered by former Senator Hill, who was paid $5,000 a year. In justice to Mr. Hill, the committee says, it was not able to get his testimony upon this silbject because he was too 1,11 to ap pear. The committee finds that, in spite of the irregularities shown, there is no reason to question the solvency of the Mutual Lite Insurance company, the New York Life Insurance company nor the Equitable Life society.
