Waterbury Syndicate Buys the Proper

the corner of Main and Maple street
Naugatuck has just been sold to Arch

several Waterbury men who have pur
chased the property as an investment.
The delal has been under way for s'ome
dime wtith the New Haven renreseta

owned the place for years.
There has been some talk of moving
the Lilley Block, which is soon to make
way for the Water Street rail
road improvements, across the river
to the site of the hotel, but this
scheme was flatly denied to-day by
Mr. Lord, who said that the pur
chasers had no definite plans whatever
about the future of the 'property.
The property is one of the best
situated In the borough and has a
large frontage on three streets, nearly
500 feet on Central Avenue and South
Malln Street and abmt 200 on Maple
Street. The price paid for the prop

place have not been given out.

People Who Could Otherwise Have
Had No Relief 148 Patients DIs.
charged Since Opening Consump
tives Need Not be Sent Far From
Home Value of Work In Education
al Way.
The report of the New Haven County
Anti-tuberculosis association, which
has just been issued, shows that the
work of this association at their sana
torium in Wallingford has been even
more prosperous than during the previ
ous year. This sanatorium is situated
on the highest point of Cook hill, whore
it gets the purest air in the country,
with all the breezes during the sultry
months. The methods of sure are
those in use at all up-to-date sanatoria,
and include sleeping out of doors, plen
ty of well-cooked, nutritious food, rest
ing, exercising within limits prescribed
by the physician in charge. Not only
art results being obtained in the sana
torium, but the patients, when they go
home, do good work among their
friends, for they1 carry the knowledge
they have obtained of the nature of the
disease, how it is communicated and
how it may be induced by living in
dark and ill-ventilated dwellings. The
influences of the work are being felt in
offices and factories where there is
more attempt to prevent indiscriminate
spitting, an also to provide better ven
tilation. One hundred and forty-six
patients have been discharged from the
sanatorium since its opening two years
ago, ana tneso constitute just one
hundred and forty-six more workers In
the endeavor to restore normal methods
of living. Not all of these have been
sent out "cured." The sanatorium has
been conducted on the plan of "the
greatest benefit to the greatest num
ber," and not to establish a reord, and
many cases received there have been
taken, although their cure was very
questionable, because of the good1 pos
sible through their care and training In
order to prevent further spread of the
disease among their families.
The records show fifty-nine per cent,
of all cases, favorable and unfavorable,
returned to active, useful life, and half
as many more greatly Improved. In
fact, the results of the treatment under
the local climatic conditions, both here
and in the well-known distant resorts.
One important feature of the work
which the report does not show is the
very moderate financial circumstances
of the majority of the patients re
celved. Were there not this institution
open to them at its low rate (which is
considerably below the cost of mainte
nance) many of them would be entirely
without means of obtaining the chance
of renewed' health and usefulness it of
fers. From Its opening on September 20,
1904, up to the present time, one hun
dred and forty-eight patients have been
discharged from the Wallingford sana
torium. The results obtained with
these have proven that it is not neces
sary . to send people of the state far
from home for treatment; but that un
der a proper regime results can be ob
tained here fully as good as those of
any well-knwn climate or health resort,
The state of health of these one hun
dred and forty-eight discharged pa
tients on November 1, 1906, was as fol
Apparently cured and arrested (with
ability to work), 73 or 49 per cent.
Continued improvement, 27 or 18 per
lisease progressive, 28 or 19.5 per
Died, 19 or 12.8 per cent.
Discharged as not tubercular, 1 or .7
per cent.
This includes all cases, even several
far advanced ones that were admitted
(though incurable) for a few weeks In
order Ho teach them how to prevent
spreading the disease among the mem
bers of their family.
Though the great majority have come
from New Haven county, every county
in the state has been represented there
by several patients, for the sanatorium
is open to all citizens of the state who
cannot afford the rates of private in
stitutions. The boon it has been to
these is shown by a glance at the list
of occupation represented among the
patients. Bookkeepers, buffers, car
penters, factory hands, salesmen, tail
ors, waitresses, teachers, nurses, steno-
iMore than this, their people have been
able to visit them, see the place and
the life they lead, and learn from per
sonal observation the 'value of a normal
healthy mode of living. Aside from Its
Immediate results, which compare fa
vorable with those of distant resorts,
its educational value alone, through its
location in easy access to friends and
families of the patients, is sufficient to
justify the most generous support from
the people of the state.
The results of local treatment at the
sanatorium at Wallingford have fully
justified the faith of its founders, and
should command the attention of all
who have the well-being of the state at
Of all the patients whose condition on
admission was such as to justify the
hope of a favorable result, fifty-nine
per cent, have been discharged with the
disease arrested and able to take up
active life; twenty-three per cent, more
have left in a greatly improved condi
tion. The first patient admitted to the san
atorium, and discharged as an arrested
case, has worked at his trade, of orna
mental plasterer in New York city for
the past eighteen months, with no re
turns of any symptoms of the disease.
(Many others who without its aid1 would
have been to-day (if alive) only hope
less invalids, are 'now leading active,
useful lives, and spreading among their
daily associates knowledge of the pos
sibilities ,of a healthy natural mode of
The institution has not attempted to
exclude all cases that would not add to
its "record." On the contrary, it has
always numbered among its patients
several whose physical condition pre
clude! the probability of any perma
nent physical benefit. These patients
have been received (when existing va
cancies justified) not only in order that
their lives might be lengthened and
rendered more comfortable, but chiefly
for the purpose of teaching them and
their familes how to guard aganst
spreading the disease to others.
The sanatorium has received patients
from every county in the state; its only
limitation (beyond that of physical
condition) being that no patient is re
eived whose circumstances are such .as
to enable him to avail himself of pri
vate institutions elsewhere. In the
past year twenty-three patients) most
of them favorable cases, left after a1
very short term because they could not
get the neeted seven dollars a week to
pay for their treatment. In fact, there
have been very few who have been able
to take the full term of six months al
lowed except through serious sacrifice
on the part of those at home.
"Over the doors of the, wards in hos
pitals for consumptives, twenty-five
years ago might well have been writ
ten these words: "All hope abandon
you who enter here;" while to-day, in
the light of our new knowledge, we
may justly place at the entrance of the
modern sanatorium the more hopeful
Inscription, "Cure often, relief usually,
comfort always."
The results of the two years', exist
ence cf the 'Wallingford sanatorium
fully justify this statement of the
greatest of living workers In the battle
that controls tuberculosis, Dr. E. . L.
Trudeau. The sanatorium has re
ceived, all together, one hundred and
eightyfour patients, representing every
county in the state. Of those dis
charged, fifty-nine p ercent, have re
turned to active, useful life, while
twenty three per cent, more have been
greatly improve!.
It has sent away one hudred and forty-six
people who took with them the
knowledge of how to prevent thespread
of this dsease and the incentive to im
part this knowledge to others. It has
demonstrated to hundreds of interested
visitors among the friends and families
of the patients, the practicability and
tho benefit of a healthy mode of life,
and the power of air, sunshine and rest
to cure and prevent disease.
It has shown that sufferers from tu
berculosis need not be sent far from
home, but can be cured (here in heir
own, state. Its work has been done In
the aid of those for whom there was,
otherwise, no relief, as they had not the
means to afford long journeys or the
rates of private Institutions. Its pa
tients have mostly come1 from active
walks of life, In which the Income they
earned was not sufficient to enable
them to be prepared for a long term of
Idleness. In fact, though the rates to
all are but seven dollars a week (five
dollars bolow the cost of maintenance),
over one-third were enabled to come
only through the aid of churches, soci
eties or individuals interested In their
cases. OOne out of every six patients
admitted left after a Tery short stay
because of lack of any means of secur
ing them the needed funds.
The results to date have proven three
ilst. That there is a "great need of
such an institution in our midst.
2d. That the one at Wallingford is
accomplishing the results for which it
was organized.
Bd. That tho work is worthy of the
heartest support from the people of the

East Canaan, Dec. 6. Day before
Thanksgiving L. F. Bronson heard a
great commotion among Jills flock of
White Wyandotte fowls at the rear
of the house, and, going out to In
vestigate, .found a very large hawk
hcpplng around on the ground. Mr.
Bronson, thinking the hawk was
disabled, took the first thing he came
across an old broom to dispatch the
bird and he and the hawk were sown
going across the tobacco field at a
lively clip. Those who saw the race
at flrt-it thought that "Lee," as he ia
familiarly called was after his
Thanksgiving turkey. The two soon
brought up at the river's 'bank and
the hawk jumped in. Mr. Bronson,
having nothing on his feet but slip
pers, did not care to wade the stream.
The hawk soon appeared on the river
bank agaJn and man and bird had an
other encounter, Bronson killing1 the
hawk with the broom.
The bird was a fine specimen cf the
hawk family, light gray in color with
a very large head, tail feathers 14
lnchela in length, and measured four
feet from tip to tip of wings. The
hawk killed a fowl at Michael Keane's
before reaching the Bronson place.
