Wlnsted, Dec. 7. The pastors of the

fair In progress here. He refused, and

some action will be taken before the
fair closes to-morrow night.
CHAMBER CONCERTS.
Much interest is being taken in the
University chamber concerts, the first
of which will be given next Wednes
day evening in Lampson lyceum. The
fact that these concerts are entering
upon their twentieth reason makes
this series a notable one. During this
time they have paid for themselves,
and it has never been necessary to
draw upon the guarantee fund. In
rplto of th efact that concerts of a
high class become more numerous
eoch year there has been n diminu
tion in the attendance at the cham
ber concerts. In fact the interest
grows as more people discover the un
usual opportunities afforded by this
series.
The Kneisel quartet has been engag
ed for the first three concerts, the re
maining one In April to be given by
tho Adamowski tiki.
In speaking of the playing of the
Kfleisel quartet it i,3 difficult in a few
words to convey an exact, idea of its
charm. Whether In reading or deliv
ery it is scholarly and refined, digni
fied and elevating. Moments spent in
listening to this quartet afford a new
enjoyment of what is the purest and
most classic form of music.
Course tickets may be. obtained at
Steinert's music store and at the col
lege bursar's office in Lampson lyceum.

Charcoal Kills
: Bad Breath,
Disagreeable Arising Odor from
Indigestion or From Any Habit
or Indulgence, Can Be In
stantly Stopped.
Sample I'neknffe Mailed Free.
Other people notice your bad breath
where you would not notice it at all.
It is nauseating to other people to
stand before them and while you are
talking, give them a whiff or two of
your bad breath. It usually comes
from food fermenting on your stomach.
Sometimes you have it in the morning
that awful sour, bilious, bad breath.
You can stop that at once by swallow
ing one or two Stuart Charcoal Lozen
ges, the most powerful gas and odor
absorbers ever prepared.
Sometimes your meals will reveal
themselves in your breath to those who
talk with you. "You've had onions."
or "You've been eating cabbage," and
all of a sudden you belch in the face
of your friend. Charcoal is a wonder
ful absorber of odors, a every one
knows. That is why Stuart's Chare al
Lozenges are so quick to stop all gas
sen and odors Lf odorous foods, or gas
from indigestion.
Don't use breath perfumes. They
never conceal the odor, and never ab
sorb the gas that causes the odor. Be
sides the very fact of using them re
veals the reason for their use.
Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges in the first
place i.top for good ail sour brash and
belching of gas, and make your breath
pure, fresh and sweet, just after you've
eaten. Then no one will turn his face
away from you when you breathe or
talk; your breath will be pure and
fresh, and besides your food will tai-te
so much better to you at your next
meal. Just try it.
Charcoal does ether wonderful things
too. It carries away from your stom
ach and intestines, all the impurities
there massed together and which caus
es the bad breath. Charcoal is a puri
fier as well as an absorber.
Charcoal ig now by far the best,
most eaiiy and mild laxative known.
A whole boxful will do no harm; In
fact, the more you take the better.
Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges are made
of pure willow charcoal and mixed
with just a faint flavor of honey to
make them palatable for you, but not
too sweet. You just chew, them like
candy. They are absolutely harmless.
Get a new, pure, sweet breath,
freshen your stomach f r your next
meal, and keep the intestlnen !n good
working order. These two things are
the secret of good health and long life.
You can get all the charcoal necessa
ry to di these wonderful but simple
things by getting Stuart's Charcoal
Lozenges. We want to test these little
wonder workers yourself before you buy
them. So send us your full nam . and
address for a free sample of Stuart's
Charcoal Lozenges. Then after you
have tried the sample, and been con
vinced, go to your druggist and get a
25c box of them. You'll f.-ol better all
over, more coonf rtab'.e, and "cleaner"
inside.
Send us your name and address to

This attraction ernes 'here direct
from the two most successful runs of

nights in Chicago. It is unanimously
admitted to be one vf the few real
success?, of this present season.
The story of the play deals in a viv
id manner with the attempts of a typ
ical Texas girl, who is the owner of
a ranch, to prevent a railroad corpo
ration, backed by millions of dollars,
from crossing a section of her ranch
The fight of this woman again.1 1 the
raiir ad octopus is not merely told in
the breezy dialogue, but realistic pic
tures of the actual scenes in the rail
road offices and on the Texas ranch
are witnessed.
The third act discloses the barbed
fence with the young ranch owner and
her con-puncher.; on the one side, and
the railroad engineer and his horse vf
assistants on the other. With the
tearing down of the fence, the grad
ing of Ihe track, the placing of the
real ties, the locating of the rails, and
practical building of the track, the au
dience is treated to a picturesque soene
of a ni'.st realistic character. Finally,
the big ,-teim crane parses over ihe
tracks, which have been laid in full
View of the audience. II is generally
admitted that "The Love Route" offers
one of tho most realistic pieces of
stage craft ever atiempted.

"HOW HEARTS 'ARE BROKEN."
The sensational and emotional
drama "How Hearts are Broken,"
which is being announced at the New
Haven theater for three nights and
Wednesday -matinee, commencing on
Monday, December 10, will establish
itself locally as one f the season's
most prominent dramatic favorites.
The action of the play takes place in
a picturesque village on the sea coast
of Maine, where the presence of sum
mer visitors from the cities and the
simple natives offer a wide contract of
characters In the unfolding of the plot.
Circumstances, however, canned thein
in a series of novel and original events
and interesting dialogues, all of which
cause them t bled in a harmoni- of
realism that is eeldom found upon t'le
stage. The story of the play js cen
tered around a young girl Mina Fan
cher the daughter of a poor but hon
est fisherman. Mona is known for her
great beautv, which wins the admira
tion of one Julian Merrill, a wealthy
but unscrupulous man who is spend
ing his vacation in the pretty sea
coa.-t village and his intentions to the
unsuspo-etiivsr maiden leads to a sec
ret marriage. The ending of the sum
irer mrnths is 'also the beginning of
the young wife's troubles, as her hus
band and lover returns to tho city and
he soon forgets hi., duty to the village
maiden and learns with resrret that a
child has been born, and ir.st'ul of
setting her right before the world, he
commences to device a plan to rid him
self of her. In this he is successful,
Ijtif not without misery io both mother
and child, who, in the end, find pnaee
nod happiness, while the bitick-heart-ed
husband and father meets the pun
ishment he deserves.

THE MANTICLL KNGACS fTMENT.
It is not at all like!;- that the sea
son will brlii to New Haven another
player of the calibre - f 'Robert Mantel!
for the very gwd reason that he is all
alone as an act -or of the irre.at epic
rules of Shakespcro. He j..-, announc
ed for an engagement of f, ur perform
ance,! in (lie N'ew Haven theater, when
ho will be seen in his famous lir.pc-r-S'mntlon
of (he title role of 'TCIr.g
I.oar," described by the critics of New
York city as the "most mcjeslic "nit of
acting the stage of t ..-day offers."
The event ought to prove of added in
terest for the. reason that the tr.i,nrty.
which many regard as finer than
"Hamlet," has never been acted n
thv; city.
Mr, Mantell's other roles will be
those of Othello, in which ho has had
no rival since, the death vf Lawrence
Harrett, on Friday night; Hamlet, on
Saturday afternoon, and King Rich
ard III., in which he scored so heavily
here last March, on Saturday night.
"THE CLANSMAN."
"Tho Clansman" has been highly
praised for it.? fidelity to the real
Ut'hern atmosphere. It portrays In
the most powerful manner the terrible,
struggle of the reconstruction era and
tho frightful perils of intrusting the
mastery of government to a helot race.
It has been received wiMi oTor.clrful
enthusiasm in all parts of the coun
try regardless v f sectional lines. Its
success was . as great in New York,
Chicago, Phtlaclelphia and otner north
ern cities as it was in its whirlwind
tour of the south.

a commendable desire to give to the
