FLORETTA WHALEY MHCOME HOME Grandmother Ready and Anx ious to Receive Her. WHEREABOUTS UNKNOWN Report That Girl Who Eloped With Cooke is in Canada Unconfirmed. New York, Aug. 12. "I am still look ing for my granddaughter," said Mrs. S. "Whaley at her Hempstead, L. I., home this morning. "I wish Floretta would write to me. She will find her home still open to her if she will re turn. I have heard nothing from her since she went away." ' Floretta Whaley, of whom Mrs. Whaley is so anxious to receive tld ' togs, is the 17-year-old school girl who on April 29 last fled from Hempstead with the rector of St. George's Protes tant Episcopal church, the Rev. Jere Knode Cooke. From the time the pair disappeared there has been no trace found of either of the elopers and gradually the community was forget ting the Incident. Interest was revived In it to-day by the published announce ment1 that friends of the girl had heard that she was in an institution In Canada, and that Cooke was not with her. There is no evidence to back up these statements. As far as can be ascertained there was a rumor to that effect in Hempstead, but it lacks any , sort of verification. Mrs. Whaley, the grandmother of the girl, expressed her I'lixiety to find Cooke "this morning. She tieeires to prosecute him to the full extent of the law. Miss Aubrey Townsend, a friend of the missing .girl, said that she had heard that Floretta was in some sort of an institution and that Cooke had let, her, but when questioned she de clared that she could give no authority for the 'belief. In the village the be lief was general that the gra'ndmother ' of Flcretta was in correspondence with her, but Mrs. Whaley immediately put tofc, j-6orts at rest. . Floretta's whereabouts Is unknown to her, but a welcome awaits the er ring girl If she will return to the old 1 ' home. Cooke was unfrocked by his bishop soon after his disappearance.' The church, of which August Bel mont h a vestryman, has decided to ', . raise the salary of the new incumbent 'on iIip theory that perhaps Cooke, who received $1,500 a year, did not receive enough. 'August Belmont,, in urging that tho salary be'raised, told some if the pnrer.ting ladles of the congrega tion that they could economize in mnhv small wavs on their trios to the Long Island beaches and on other small expenditures. Belmont's advice about small economies have caused some mild amusement. ' Hartford, Aug. 12. Rtenzl A. Clarke of Hartford, father of Mrs. . Cooke, when 'as''d 'if he had heard anything of either of the couple, said he had not. , He was surprised to learn that Miss Whaley had been found, the news . ., at that time not having been contra dicted. He .said he thought Cooke would desert her after their supply of nnney was exhausted, and seemed to think the girl was fortunate" to be rid " of the fellow. He said Cooke could dr. pclMng but paint and preach, and now that the latter Vocation has been deserted he would not be able to earn a very high living with the paint brush. 1 Mrs. Cooke, who makes her home with her father at No. 521 Prospect avenue, has heard nothing of Mlsa i Whaley from Long Island. Later in 'the summer Mrs. Cooke expects to go to Hempstead to visit with friends in her husband's forjner parish. AT THE LOCAL THEATERS. At the Hyperion. The Cohan and Harris comedians in Geo, M1.

The new (Poll's stock comp'any, which ds the regular company from Poll's theatre in Springfield, Mass:, opened at Poll'6 yesterday afternoon very suc cessfully, with "The. Strange Adven tures of Miss Brown" before a large house despite the weather and the thea. latre being cool and comfortable all en joyed the entertainment. The produc tion is lor laughing purposes only and created a furore of comedy. Illustrated songs and the electrograph between the acts makes the performance of the continuance order. FOUNTAINS TO PLAY ECHOES. West Side Fire Laddies to Meet Shel ton Firemen. Next Saturday afternoon the Foun tain Hose company baseball team will try conclusions with the Echo 1 Hose nine of 'Shelton. The locals have long been anxious to get at their Shelton brethren and expect Saturday to, show them that ithey know something about the national game or how it should b played. The Ansonia nine, in fact, feels so confident of victory that the mem bers of the team are using up their spare time figuring Just how many runs to pile up. It would never do, itheysay, to bury the Echoes completely, so it has been decided merely to put them to sleep. A big crowd from here will go to Sunnyside to see the operation performed. The Fountains do not real ly need any practice, but for appear ance sake thetea.m will get together to morrow evening at the usual place. NEW WATER FILTER SYSTEM ONE FOR SOUTH NORWALK One Hundred Thousand Dollar Plant Will Soon be Ready for Use of That City. South Norwalk, Aug. 12. This place will soon have completed a $100,000 water filter system which will suply this place with some of the purest wa ter obtainable. The entire filtering system Is con structed throughout with concrete, in cluding the floor, sides and roof, the latter being supported by many solid concrete columns. The part designated as the clear water basin has been completed, swept out, and the roof cov ered with two feet of earth, which Is calculated to keep outthe cold In win ter and the heat In summer. In fact the whole system Is to be thorough'y covered and banked to prevent freez ing in the winter, and to be kept as cool as possible in the summer. The filter system covers an acre and a quarter of ground, all under cover, In cluding the primary filter In four sec tions, the secondary niter ana uie ciear water basin. The minimum capacity of the plant per day is 3,000,000 gallons, and by careful management can be operated to 5,000,00 or 6,000,000 gallons without harm. The filter Is the largest capacity per capita In the country. It is designed so that a conflagration In the city would not require a change to a aireci connection with the reservoir. The commissioners estimate that enough fil tered water will be constantly on hand in the secondary filter or clear water basin for all purposes, no matter how great the demand. Besides the land for the reservoir at North Wilton the city owns at the present reservoirs 520 acres above wa ter, which could be made at a small cost into a beautiful park. Much oK this land is SCO feet elevation, and commands a fine view of the surround ing country. LAST CAUi FOR BABIES.

Tootsle and Wootsie and Darling all declare they are going, and mother has fixed up their Sunday-go-to-meeting dresses, which they have not been us ing these hot summer days. Just be cause they are going to wear dresses, Tootsle and Wootsle don't want the dear public to think they are girls. Oh my, no. They -are both going to bo president of the United States Rome dav, so father says, and of course a girl would never be president not In this century. Darling is Just as cute as she can be, and the neighbors all say she will surely be the cutest of them all those neighbors who have no prize winners of their own. Her ma Is not going to dress her up very much because It won't be necessary, and If she did the other girls would not have the ghost of- a show. Besides it is'nt the dress that counts, it's the baby the baby with the best points that appeal to the Judge, and while feathers make an os trich, it's not that way with baby. To-day Is the last chance to make entry and the blanks can be obtained from the store of M. Mann & Bro., 786 Chapel street. FRENCH WILL EXPLAIN.

THE WELLS ARE EMPTIED Neighbors Make Vain Attempt to Save Anderson House. Southport, Aug. 12. A cottage owned and occupied by ,T. J. Anderson, cn Main street hear the Round Hous was emtlrely consumed, with its contents early yesterday morning. Mr. Andei son and his wife barely escaped with their lives. Between three and four o'clock Mrs. Anderson was awakened by the crackling flames and found the room full of smoke. Sh awakon ed husband and they made their way out of doors only to find lhat the basement was a mass of flames which had eaten their way through, the floor and already had possession of the whole house, excepting the room where they were sleeping. The neighborhood w-:Hs roused and an alarm of Are turned In which brought out the department. By the time the apparatus arrived It was too late to save the building and the owner was obliged to stand by and s eeeverytli'ng consumed. Mrs. An derson risked her life in a successful attempt to get her prveketbook which was In the bed room and her husband was almost overcome by the smoke In a fruitless attempt to save some of his property. Ha was dragged out of the house by the firemen In a half cons ious condition. The couple loses ev erything, not even saving their cloth ing and they are to-day wearing cloth ing which their neighbors furnished. The fire start-ed in the basement kitch en of the house and there Is no clue as to what caused it.

The total loss will reach nearly $1,000. The steamer was not taken to the fire and only ithe hook and ladder truck was pulled out. It was the same old story of most fires In this vicinity. A heavy and elaborate fire apparatus without water to use. The fire had gained such headway before it was discovered that only an unlimited amount of water could have put it out. The wells of the vicinity were emptied in short time after the neighbors responded to the alarm and the building then was at the mercy of the flames. : Tivpnty-flfth C. V. Reunion.

Waterbury, tAug. 12.-There was a peculiar automobile accident on the mountain road between Waterbury and Plantsville yesterday, in which a big covered car was sent out of Commis sion and one ( of the women occupants swooned. - The woman, Ml?s Anna Comstock of Springfield, was guiding the machine at. the time, nd her companion on the front seat, another woman, Miss Gould of Philadelphia, saw her stulden dis comfiture, and heroically grabbed the wheel, and did her best to save the machine and occupants, but the auto collided with a milk wagon, breaking It Into fragments and upsetting the driver, and then ran into a stone wall. The woman, still (unconscious, wag carried to a farm house, where she lay In a stupor for six hours before the machine was repaired and made ready. She continued her journey very weak, and the party hoped to make Hartford before midnight. The cause of all this trouble was a small green snake that dropped into the lap of the woman at the wheel unperceived by the others. The man who went with a box of tool3 to' the rescue of the belated quintet found the snake in the body of the car, and that was the first they knew of the reason for the woman fainting, as she had been hysterical until late last night, and could give no explanation. ..The party settled with the milkman for $60, and secreting all the evidences of identlQoation, including registry plate.3 of three states,' waived all re porters aside gracefully. The names obtained were those registered here and in Hartford when they were On this circuit before. The men were In the rear seat at the time of the collision, and were j shaken up considerably. The party jwere Miss Anna tLomstoen, spring- field, Mass., at the wheel; Miss Gould. Philadelphia, her companion, and Ralph P. Comstock, New York; F. S. Bf.rton, Boston, and George Dilling ham, Xewark, N. J. One of the number lo?t a diamond pin and the other a valuable hat pin. COMPLAINT AGAINST B.VTIIERS.

There is aome complaining among residents of upper Bank street in regard to the conduct of aome of the boys and young men who frequent the swimming hole near the factory of the James Swan Co. For the most part they maintain a fair amount of good order, but some of of the. boys, and even some of the men, converse in loud toftes of voice, swearing and Indulging in obscenity.. Particularly is this true on Sunday afternoon. In the quiet which cus tomarily reigns in that residential neighborhood, the language used can be heard by everyone living ill the vi cinity. In the past it has been found neces- I sary by the Swan Co., which owns the i property used by the boys for swim- j ming, to post notices forbidding tros- , passing there. As It is the only swim- ming hole In town in general use, the people who reside in the neighborhood , hesitate- to complain. ' Axminster Carpets $1.15 yd.
