PUTS THE "GINGER" IN The Kind of Food Used by Athletes. A former college athlete, one of the long distance runners, began to lose his power of eudurance. His exper ience with a change of food is interest Ing. "While I was in training on the track athletic team, my daily 'jogs' became a task, until after 1 was put on Grape-Nuts food for two meals a day After using the Food for two weeks felt like a new man. My digestion wae perfect, nerves steady and 1 was full of energy. "I trained for the mile and the half mile runs (those events which require some much endurance) and then the long daily 'jogs,' Which before had " been such a task, were clipped off with ease. I won both events. "The Grape-Nuts food put me in perfect condition and game me my 'ginger.' Not only was my physical condition made perfect, and my weight Increased, but my mind was made clear and vigorous so that I could get out my studies in about half the time formerly required. Now most all University men use Grape Nuts for they have learned its value, but I think my testimony will not be amiss and my perhaps help some one to learn how the best results can be , obtained." There's a reason for the effect of Grape-Nuts food on the human body and brain. The certain elements in wheat and barley are selected with special reference to their power for rebuilding the brain and nerve cen ters. The product is then carefully and scientifically prepared so as to make it easy of digestion. The physi cal and mental results are so apparent afefjr two or three week's use as to produce a profound Impression. Read "The Road to Wellviile," in pkgs.

J 3. Frank Cro celli, the Italian who was murdered In an alleyway on Pembroke street last Friday night, was shot to death bo cause he had nerve enough to refuse blackmail to a gang that has long ter rorized local Italians. The startling fact that the "Black Hand" Bociety has a branch in operation in this city seems borne out by the statements of a number of local Italians, who have come forward since the Pem broke street affair, to tell what they know about the blackmailing that hat been going on. Of the four men under arrest in connection with the murder it is now thought 'that two were actively con cerned in it and two were witnesses. All four were arraigned In the city court to-day on the charge of murder in thp first degree, and are held with out bonds. The charge will probably be modified later. t BOY SCARED THE BURGLARS, Willlmantic, Sept. 23. Burglars early to-day ransacked the house of George E.

GREAT NEED OF FUNDS Loan Taken Up by the Corpor ation May Reach $45, 000,000. Local brokers are wondering what success the New Haven railroad will have in floating Its loan, which is re garded as quite necessary for the com pany's improvements. These same brokers stated to-day that it was rath er improbable that the railroad would care to issue the new stock with the present stringent conaitlon of the money market, It was stated further, that the stockholders at their annual meeting next month might decide to authorize the new stock with a plan to Issue It say a couple of months later. It was regarded as probable that the money market would be In better condition then and that the stock could be sold to advantage. . The stock of the New Haven rail road has always been regarded in this part of the country aa gilt edge and there has been much desire on , the part of Investors to own It. Very lit tle of the stock l ever offered for sale. Stockholders retain these securi ties during their lives and when they die the stock Is still retained in the family. It formerly paid 10 percent and Is now paying eight per cent. The new stock Is expected to pay just as much. The question of whether so large an amount of new stock would still carry the eight per cent, dividend has been discussed in local 1 financial circles. It is the general opinion that the railroad will be able to maintain its big divi dend, although with an issue of 25 to 30 per cent, additional stock, there are but few corporations in the country that could maintain the same dividend. Of course, if the stock la sold at a time when money is stringent, the nanagoment cannot expect to get as ;ood a price .as was paid for the last ssue of stock. But with the enormous mprovements thai are toeing made and he big expenditu of cash, financiers ay that it is not at all strange that he price of stock should be depressed o some extent, notwithstanding the act that the appraisement o'f the noperty is Increased by every dollar ;hat is expended in these Improve ments. On this matter of a new stock Issue the Boston Nows Bureau says: "On account of enormous expendi tures for improvements, betterments, new equipment, etc.-, the road is In urgent need of new money. As far back as last January the directors con sidered the new stock issue, and voted at that time to give the stockholders the right to subscribe to 25. per cent, of the new stock. t'The original intention was to issue the new stock at $150 a share, which would provide $42,000,000 of cash, but the stringency of the money market ha AafarrBA tha nHl the nrea.

"The estimate that new stock would be Issued at par seems entirelv ton low. At $125 the new stock issue would provide the road with $35,000,000. and it is probably at this figure or there- 1 , muts win De orrerea. Iho financial necessities of the rnarl demand the raising at once of between Jo,uw,uuti and $15,000,000." NEW BRITAIN ROMANCE. Member of the Girls from Broadway Co. Takes Out Marriage License.
