The sub-committee from the Hawley com mission consists of Colonel Frank W. Cheney, Charles Hopkins Clark of the Hartford Courant and Professor H. W. Farnham of New Haven. From the Piatt commission the ' sub-commititee is composed of the Hon H. Wales Lines of Merlden, Charles Noel Flagg of Hartford and Dr. William J. Ford of Washington. The chairmen of the commissions are Colonel Cheney and ex-Senators Lines. August St. Gau dens, the sculptor, will probably be se lected to make the designs for the me morials which were ordered by the leg islature of 1905. The health of the sculptor, which was impaired six months ago, Is now restored and he is at his studio regularly. At the meet ing of the sub-committee this week a number of Important details will be disposed of, making the way clear for the future. When the commissions were appointed a year and a half ago It was hoped that definite plana would foe ready at the opening of the new session. But additional time will be required. The commissions have not been able to secure a conference with St. Gaudens since last June, when his health gave out temporarily. He will now be able to take up the work again with results creditable alike to himself and the state.- The Hon. John H. Perry of Fairfield, chairman of the commission on corrupt practices, will be in Hartford at the opening of the session with the report of the commission, the principal fea tures of which have been made public. i Ex-Speaker Perry has devoted a large amount -of time and thought to the work of the commission, and will be ai the Capitol a good deal of time through the winter in connection with the legislation that has been recom mended.

Gov ernor Woodruff will be escorted from the Hartforid club to the Capitol, giv ing a new feature to Inaugural pa rades. The Hartford club Is icn'e of 'the finest buildings of its kind In the state and will make a splendid setting for the governor's start to 'the capitol. The club building has been the scene of several interesting public events, but . the one arranged for Wednesday in honor of Governor Woodruff will be the first of state importance that has taken place there. The noted reception that was given Alton B. Parker and A. Heaton (Robertson In Hartford during the presidential campaign two years ago took place at the Hartford club, and was the first of ihe political as semblages that have been held there.

Doubtless Heaven will be full of sur prise at what simple things had for merly made us happy or unhappy! If a man insisted on taking salsoda dissolved in his drinking water day af ter day and wondered why his stomach was irritated, people would think he - was crazy. It's about as bad to take the drug that's in coffee, into your stomach, although it's an old-time-honored habit to do so. "I used to be a great coffee drinker 'and thought there was nothing so nourishing as coffee except milk.- But I was sickly, with hollow cheeks and headache about all tho time," said a Phlla. man the other day: , "Still I kept on drinking coffee, never suspecting it was the cause of my ills, and wondered if I was doomed to be sick all the time, and never enjoy life like other folks. It was as if I was taking poison in little quantities every day and wondered why I was sick. "Many times I read about Postum Food Coffee, but thought it was one of the fakes palmed off on the people. I wouldn't try it at first, but left off coffee to see if the Postum people were right about its being injurious. "You may well guess I was surprised when my headaches were few and far between and I felt as If a load had been taken off my stomach. "When I was thus half convinced that coffee had done me harm, I thought I'd try a package of Postum. I made it carefully according to direc tions, and it was simply great! " It is delicious when made right, and beats coffee all hollow in taste, let alone wholesomeness. Leaving off coffee after it has become a fixed habit ' ed Into an evening's entertainment is hard, but Postum makes It an easy ; many beautiful scenes, so sterling a matter. There' no greater lover or plot, such happy comedy, or such a champion of Postum now than I am galaxy of mysterious, magical stunts for I have learned how to be well." iand sensational climaxes.

Haven will preside at the annual meet- Ing and banquet of the Governor's Staff association, which will be held at the Hartford club on Wednesday. There are fifty members of the associa- tion, which comprises some of the fore- most business men in the state, going back to the days of Governor Charles B Andrews. Speaking of Governor Andrews recalls the fact that one of his : staff,' Charles L. Dean, is now a member of the Massachusetts senate. Sena'tor Dean belongs in eastern Con necticut.

So far advanced are the theories pro- mulgated by Bernard Shaw in "Man and Superman," in which Robert Lor- alne will be seen at the Hyperion to- morrow, night, that it is said to leave behind the impression that it Is a good thing to get away from obsolete ideas. The fact that Mr. Loraine has been given so much praise in "Man and Su- perman" is in itself indisputable evi- dence that Dublic odnion has under- gone what may be regarded as a revo- lutionary change. There was a time when "Man and Superman" would have had little favor with playgoers, It might have been hissed out of exist- ence, all because the author advances so many new thoughts which years ago would have been considered as a men- ace to good government, good morals, healthful condition of the public mind. It only goes to show that the people themselves have changed. Liberality of thought has taken the place of pro- vincialism. It was Rev. John Jasper who said, "The sun do move." While Jasper was undoubtedly wrong on his astronomical observations, it must be admitted that public thought advances constantiy in the direction of greater liberality. Mr. Shaw advances some- thing new, something novel, something out of the ordinary in fact, something unusual in his great play, "Man and Superman.' THE EARL AND THE GIRL. "Medical statistics show that two thirds of the inmates of the insane asy lums come from the country," said G. H. Atkinson, agent for Eddie Foy in "The Earl and the Girl." "Now, the reason for this is clear to all. The ordinary, farmer, leads a very monotonous life. He never gets an op portunity to get into the limelight. In deed, the missing link in the country man's life is entertainment. The daily routine of his life would give any one the willies.

That strong emotional melodrama bearing the title of "The Curse of Drink," opened a highly successful en- I ement at the New Haven theater ' last night. This drama has always ,en a popular one with New Haven theatergoers, and its popularity never seems to wane, for it always plays to large and enthusiastic audiences. It is more powerful than the strongest tem perance sermon ever preached from a pulpit, and leaves a strong, lasting im pression upon all who witness it. .The plot might be said to bea, railroad story, in that it centers around both railroad officials and employes. The principal character In the play is Bill Sanford, an engineer, who has become a slave to the rum habit. In him the audience can see a man gone beyond the hope of recovery. They witness him going through the terrible sufferings of the delirium tremens, and they finally see him rescued from the impending doom, and put upon his feet again. A realistic scene which arouses the audience to much enthusiasm is the thrilling rescue of Nellie, Sanford, the engineer's daughter, by Harry Rand, who is In love with her, while on the piiot of a full sized locomotive, which is racing through a blinding snow storm. There is villainy aplenty and lots of good comedy, but the usual mor ality Is observed when the wicked fall down to the depths of ignominy, and the wrpnged and suffering at last come into prosperity and happiness. All this does not happen until the enginer for sakes drink forever, and rises above temptation. The company is a strong one, and Is headed by P. Aug. Anderson, who plays the part of the engineer. Other well known and capable artists in the cast are Will W. Crimans, Harry WInfield, Thomas McKenna, George W. Kerr, William Clifton, Tommy Merrick, Carl Gath, W. C.McKenna, James H. Kerr, Mildred Heyland, Emma Gath, Baby Minerva, Winnie Wilmer and the Elcc trlo Comedy Four. "The Curse of Drink" ought to be a full-house drawing- card for to-night, Wednesday matinee and Wednesday evening at popular prices. Its novelty, its plot and its thrilling situations have justly earned for "The Phanton Detective" ' the title of the melodramatic masterpiece of the age. Never before has a playwright crowd- villainous intrigues set to ensnare a young and beautiful girl. You laugh, you cry, you are amazed. It is the play that has set two continents agape wjth wonderment, and (Rowland and Clifford have spared neither sains nor expense to make this production the most elaborate of its kind. This play wiu nere on Thursday, Friday and gatUrday nights, January 10, 11 and 12, maHriPB n Saturday. "OOMIN' THRO" THE RYE." "Comin' Thro the Rye" to be given at the New Haven theater January 16, will doubtless draw large Mouses. Ev- organization of eighty people, which "as been so phenomenally successful in ixew lurK. "uo""' a"" Chicago, is coming here, with all of the original principals in the cast, and every detail of the stage representa tion, and this condition of affairs war rants the interest that is so manifest. Thoroughly good comedy and plenty of it, and a charming musical score, with entirely capable artists to inter- 1 pret it, make a potent drawing power, ana lnese elements are assurea in tne Performance of 'Comin Thro the j tfesio.es we are to nave me ceieDratea Deauty cnorus oi sixty, and the charming "girl with the white horse," both of which adjuncts of the show have created such a favorable impression everywhere. That this will prove to be one iof the most deliehtful theatrical events that has occurved ! here in a very long time, goes without saying. The great cast includes Stella 'May - hew, Besse Gibson, Florence Townsend, Frank Lal'or, Frank Doane, John Park, Wm. Riley Hatch, and the others who are identified with the suc- ces of thi production. Poll's New Theater. The new bill opened at Poll yeter- day afternoon and i headed by Edward Davis and his company in the strong dramatic playlet entitled "The Un- masking." It Is one of the biggest an(j most sensational playlets seen in vaudeville this season. tA strong com- pany helps to make the playlet a suc- ces9. juna Redmond and company In 'Too Much Married" showed the re- gutg o having too much aid at times, for this young married man enlisted the services of the servants and all his friends to get him out of his diffi culty. He gets Into more trouble, however, as a result of their efforts'. The sketch is very amusing. Al. H. Weston and company in "The New 'Reporter," were a delight. Avery and Hart, the colored come dians; Rawles and Von JCaufman, the Picolo midgets and many others make up an original bill of iwvelty and comedy. BIjon Theater.

As the court Jester Lucius Falrchlld Is seen in another extremely clever bit of characterization. His ability in pre senting unique characters has won for him a warm place In the hearts of patrons of the Bijou and in nine of his work has he showed more ability than in this odd character of bygone times. Dorothy Lamb is unusually good as the princess of Ebon, an unioveiy character which requires much ability in its Interpretation. Margaret Hagen is clever as Dona Inez de Mendoza, the blind sister of Dolores.' The work of the supporting company aemanas commendation for tho avenness and excellence of its work. The Nlcolet.
