' The plaintiff was a passenger on a train bound from Providence to Sterling, this etate, on August 22, 1903, and was in jured in an accident. : Under the stat ute of limitations such a suit cannot be brought after the expiration of a year. In Massachusetts there are no such restrictions, but it is expected that the railroad company will raise the conten tion that, inasmuch as the accident oc curred in Connecticut, the law regard ing the filing of notice and the statute bf limitations will apply. The case will be tried In Springfield, &nd Fitzgerald & Walsh are counsel for ithe plaintiff. BROOKLYN TROLLEY SETTLES SUIT. An agreement has been reached be tween the Brooklyn Rapid Transit sys tem of Brooklyn, N. Y and Attorney L. E. Jacobs for the settlement of the euit of Miss Florence Henry, of 342 Crown street, this city, who was in jured while riding on one of the com pany's cars in Brooklyn last Septem ber.

JONES SUED FOR COUN SEL FEES. As an aftermath of the famous Jones Evans litigation, suit was brought against Susan A. Jones yesterday by Judge Richard H, Tyner to recover $275 for legal fees which has been owed him for services rendered Mrs. Jones five years ago. At that time Mrs. Jones bought out a restaurant from sa Mr. Merrlls, and later, alleging that Merrils had de frauded her, she retained Judge Tyner and brought suit against Merrlls, and recovered judgment. Judge Tyner al leges that he has never received any fees from her. Garnishee papers were served on the administrator of the Evans estate and on Attorney Harry W. Asher, Mrs. Jones' counsel, and also on Evans. The euit is returnable to the common pleas court on the first Tuesday in April. 'Attorney R, M. Rosenbluth brought the action.

His knee was fearfully lacerated by the boat's pro peller, inflicting a permanent injury. The jury was sent out late in the morning. COFF The published statements of a num ber of coffee importers and roasters Indicate a "waspy"' feeling towards us, for darfng to say that coffee is harm ful to a percentage of the people. A frank public discussion of the sub ject is quite agreeable to us and can certainly do no harm; on the contrary when all the facts on both sides of any question are spread before the people they can thereupon decide and act in telligently. Give the people plain facts and they will take care of themselves. We demand facts in this coffee dis cussion and propose to see that the facts are brought clearly before the people. A number of coffee importers and roasters have joined a movement to boom coffee and stop the use of Pos tum Food Coffee and in their news paper statements undertake to deceive by false assertions. Their first is that coffee is not harm ful. We assert that one In every three coffee users has some form of incipient or chronic disease; realize for one mo ment what a terrible menace to a na tion of civilized people, when one kind of beverages cripples the energies and health of one third the people who use it We make the assertion advisedly and suggest that the reader secure his own proof by personal inquiry among coffee users. Ask you coffee drinking friends If they keep free from any sort of aches and ails. You will be startled at the percentage and will very na turally seek to place the cause of dis order on something aside from coffee, whether food, inherited tendencies or something else. Go deeper in your search for facts. If your friend admits occasional neuralgia, rheumatism, heart weakness, stomach or bowel trouble, kidney com plaint, weak.eyes, or approaching nervous prostration induce him or her to make the experiment of leaving cof fee for 10 days and using Postum Food Coffee, and observe the result-. It will startle you and give your friend some thing to think of. Of course, if the person is one of the weak ones and says "I can't quit" you will have dis covered one of the slaves of the coffee importer. Treat such kindly, for they seem absolutely powerless to stop the gradual but sure destruction of body and health. WALLINGFORD BANKRUPT CASE. Gurian Brothers, Wallingford shoe dealers, declared bankrupt recently, filed their schedules In the United States bankruptcy court In this city yesterday. The debts amount to $1,950 and the assets $1,100. No local creditors are included In the schedules. CITY COURT CASES. In the city court yesterday Frank Sanborn was given thirty days for beg ging. The charge of violation of the liquor law against Michael McKiernan went over until March 27. On three charges of violation of the liquor law at his home, 137 Lafayette street, Angelo Papplane was fined $10 on each count. The man had no license and sold on Sunday. Patrick Moran, charged with gaming, had his case continued, under the pro bation officer's charge, until May 31. Charles Randall and John Gordon, alias Crane, were charged with at tempting to .burglarize the store of the Whittlesey Drug company, State and Wooster streets. The cases were con tinued until to-morrow under bonds of $500 each. BASKETBALL For Grammar Schools League to be Organized. The matter of organizing a basket ball league among the different gram mar schools of this city is now in the hands of F. H. Beede, the superintend ent of schools in New Haven, and he will shortly call a meeting of all the principals to act upon the question. The idea is regarded with favor, and it is thought that the league will be or ganized within a very short time. It is planned to arrange a schedule of abom a month's duration, and to play all games on the floor of the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium. WORCESTER CONSOLIDATED. Sale to New Haven Road Not Yet Con summated. President C. S. Mellen said yesterday regarding the report from Worcester of the sale of the Worcester Railway and Investment company: "The saie of the Worcester Consoli dated company to the Now Haven com pany has not yet been consummated." ' Reports from Worcester on Monday evening had the deal entirely made. The deal in Worcester, if made, will in volve about $3,000,000. The road, if captured by the New Haven, will give the Consolidated Rail way company a right into the city of Worcester. It now controls the lines leading into Worcester from several sides.

If it did there would be few children that would do it. There is a constitutional cause for this. Mrs. M. Summers, Box 63 6, Notre Dame, Intl., will send her home treatment to any mother. She asks no money. Write her to-day if your children trouble you in this way. Don't blame the child. The chances are it can't help it. Nature has a way of destroying a part of the people to make room for the stronger. It is the old law of "the survival of the fittest" at work, and the victims are many. We repeat , the assertion' that coffee does harm many people, not all, but an army large enough to appeal to the in vestigator and searcher for facts. The next prevarication of the coffee importers and roasters is their state ment that Postum Food Coffee is made of roasted peas, beans or corn, and mixed with a low grade of coffee and that it contains no nourishment. We have previously offered to wager $100,000.00 Vith them that their state ments are absolutely false. They have not accepted our wager and they will not. We will gladly make a present of $25,000-00 to any roaster or importer of old fashioned coffee who will accept that wager. Free inspection of our factories and methods is made by thousands of peo ple each month and the coffee import ers themselves are cordially invited. Both Postum and Grape Nuts are ab solutely pure and made exactly as stated. The formula of Postum and the an alysis made by one of the foremost chemists of Boston has been , printed on every Package for many years and is absolutely accurate. Now as to the food value of Postum. It contains the parts of the wheat berry which carry the elemental salts such a lime, iron, potash, silica, etc., etc., used by the life forces to rebuild the cellular tissue, and this is particularly true of the phosphate of potash, also found In Grape-Nuts, which combines in the human body with albumen and this combination, together with water, rebuilds the worn out gray matter in the delicate nerve centres all over the body, and throughout the brain and so lar plexus. Ordinary coffee stimulates in an un natural way, but with many people it slowly and surely destroys and does not rebuild this gray substance so vitally important to the well-being of every human being. These are eternal facts, proven, well authenticatedand known to every prop erly educated physician, chemist and food expert. Please remember we never -say ordi nary coffee hurts everyone. SECRETARY GOLD DEAD. VETERAN AGRICULTURIST ENDS PUBLIC CAREER. Was a Graduate of Yale In the Class of ' I 1838 For Years a Teacher and Later . on Agricultural Station Board of Control. West Cornwall, March 20 Theodore . Sedgwick Gold, the veteran agrlcultur- ' 1st, who for many years had been a central figure at all agricultural gath erings in this state, died at his home here just before midnight last night, after an illness of three months due to the infirmities of old age. , Mr. Gold was born In Madison, N. C. March 2, 1818. the son of Dr. Samuel W. and Phebe Cleveland Gold. He was graduated from Yale in 1838, and stud ied at the college for a year after his graduation. He then taught in Goshen and Waterbury academies for three years, and came to Cornwall in 1842 as a farmer. In 1845 he established with his father an agricultural school, and taught in it for twenty-four years. He first married Caroline E. Lockwood of Bridgeport, September 13, 1843, and sEie died, April 25, 1857, leaving children as follows: Mrs. Eleanor D. Hubbard of Hartford City, Ind.; Mrs. Rebecca C Cornell of Guilford, and Mrs. Caroline F. Gibson of San Francisco, Cal. On April 4, 1859, Mr. Gold married Mrs. Emma Tracy Baldwin, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Tracy of Rock ville, who survives him with four chil dren, as follows: Mrs. Alice T. Putt kamer of Berlin, Germany; Mrs. Mar tha W. Morgan of Montreal, Can.; Charles L. Gold of West Cornwall, and Dr. James D. Gold of Bridgeport. He Is also survived by nineteen grandchil dren. Mr. Gold was a life member of the Connecticut State Agricultural society, and was officially connected with It from its ibeginning in 1853. He was a trustee of the State Agricultural col lege from 1881 to 1901, and was a mem ber of the board of control of the Con necticut Agricultural experiment sta tion from its foundation in 1887. He was also a member of the American Pomo logical society, the American Forestry association, the National Geographical association, tie American Historical as sociation, the Connecticut Historical society, the Sons of the American Rev olution, the Founders and Patriots and other societies. In 1866, at the establishment of the Connecticut board of agriculture, he was chosen Its secretary, which office he held for many yeara. Jn 1864 he, wlttii the aid of the names of the other corporators, obtained from the general assembly a charter for the "Connecti cut Soldiers' Orphan's Home- This was located at Mansfield, and during its maintenance, or until 1874, he was sec retary of the corporation. Probably no man in the state whose life was devoted to agriculture, was better known than Mr. Gold. The farm, ing interests of the state received his unremitting attention for half a cen tury. He was proud of Connecticut and its achievements, in wfoich his family had played no small part and his in terest continued until the end of his life. He was greatly interested in the early history of his state and of his town and published a history of Corn wall in 1877, bringing out a second edi tion in 1904. Some people use It regularly and seem strong enough to withstand its attacks, but there is misery and dis ease in store for the man or( woman who persists in its use when nature protests, by heart weakness, stomach and bowel troubles, kidney disease, weak eyes, or general nervous pros tration. The remedy is obvious. The drug caffeine, contained in all ordinary coffee, must be discontinued absolutely or the disease will continue in spite of any medicine and will grow worse. It is easy to leave off the old fashion ed coffee by adopting Postum Food Coffee, for in it one finds a pleasing hot breakfast or dinner beverage that has the deep seal brown color, chang ing to a rich golden brown when good cream is added. When boiled long enough (15 minutes the flavor is not that of rank Rio coffee, but very like milder, smooth and high grade Java, but entirely lacking the drug effects of ordinary coffee. i Anyone suffering from disorders set up by coffee drinking (and there is an extensive variety) can absolutely de pend upon some measure of relief by quitting coffee and using Postum Food Coffee. If the disease has not become too strongly rooted, one can with good rea son expect it to disappear entirely in a reasonable time after the active cause of the trouble is removed and the cel lular tissue has time to naturally re build with the elements furnished by Postum and good food. It's only Just plain old common sense. Now, with the exact facts before the reader, he or she can decide the wise course, looking to health and the power to do things. If you have any doubt as to the cause of any ache or ail you may have, re member the far reaching telegrams of a hurt nervous system travel from heel to head, and it may be well worth your while to make the experiment of leav ing off coffee entirely for 10 days and using Postum in its place. You will probably gather some good solid facts, worth more than a gold mine, for health can make gold and sickness lose it. BesideB there's all the fun, for it's like a continuous internal frolic to be perfectly well. There's a reason for POSTUM POSTUM CEREAL CO., Ltd. Battle Creek, Mich.

Hull, says people report after taking Vinol. "It is remarkable," said Mr. Hull to the editor of the Journal and Courier, "how many people buy se datives and all sorts of opiates to quiet and deaden the nerves, when they are weakening their entire nervous system iby doing so. ,"Nerve troubles are .easily cured," con tinued Mr. Hull. "It is eimply a case of treating the general weakness, not the nerves alone, and what is just what Vlnol does In the most direct and sim ple manner possible. It cures nerve troubles because it builds one up, and makes one strong all over. It Invigor ates the entire nervous system, makes new Wood and vitality. "Vlnol contains no drugs ,and you know what you are taking simply the medicinal curative found in cod liver oil with a little organic iron added. It is fast superseding old forms of cod liver oil and emulsions ibecause it is so delicious to the taste and has such mar. velous vitalizing power." It is for this reason that we say to every nervous, run-down and debili tated person in New Haven, try Vlnol, and if it does nof cure you come back and get your money." HuU's Corner Drug Store.
