AIR HAVEN HAPPENINGS and Avenue Congregational Church to Sell Ferry Street Prop ertyBishops Home from Coasting in Switzerland. "Leah Kleschna," the powerful mod ern drama that Mrs. Fiske acted for three seasons with tremendous success, will be presented at the Hyperion on Wednesday, September 25, by a special company under the management of Harrison Grey Fiske. .Mr. Fiske Is this season sending out special companies in this and other of his successful pro ductions, and the performances are said to be of a higher quality than anything usually seen outside of the lanrer cities. rhe Grand avenue Congregational rch has decided to sell the old ry street church property. This ! rch, it will be remembered, was ' it by the late Hiram Camp, who for i many years was president of the tv Haven Clock company. Mr. np owned a fine residence in Ferry et and seeing the need of a church that vicinity, for the accommoda- fi of many people, he built the Fer- street church at an outlay of over 000. For several years It was a tigregational church and for years society did excellent religious rk. When the church was buijt re was not nearly so much railroad fflo Jn that vicinity as at present. le rear of the church abutts on the jlroad, and there are a great many ins operated during the twenty-four irs. These trains became such a fwback to church services, owing to noise, that they practically result in breaking up the church society. several years no church services e been held and the property, by eemervk with the society and with rs of Hiram Camp, reverted to the and avenue Congregational church. r 'several months this church has intained a branch Sunday school, ich has been conducted under en raging circumstances, but after ussing he matter the members of church have about decided that it best to seirthe property. Some e ago an offer was' made for the perty, with a view t6 using It 'for nufacturlng purposes. It is bellev- that the property is better adapted manufacturing than for any other J-pose. The church .would make te a considerable factory building Jl with a spur track along the rail- d it would be easily provided with venlent facilities for receiving and Jpping goods. Ir. and Mrs. Walter S. Bishop and s Grace Bishop had an interesting erlence on the Jungfrau In Switzer- d, on August 23, during their trip purope. Up 14,000 feet above sea H they enjoyed a sled ride down of the glaciers for a distance of 1, feet. The ride over the glacial ice h made at a pretty speedy rate and eemed to them that they were go at least sixty miles an hour. When people were baking beneath a hot rust sun at sea level, up on the gfrau, above the clouds, it was re tiringly cool. The Bishops recount ir coasting In August, as among the fet thrilling experiences of their timer abroad. atn, rain, rain. Many people !n this ric-t were wishing yesterday for the d days of the drouth period of se or four weeks ago, remarking it ? about as bad to be drowned out to be scorched by the sun. People fig to their work on the open cars terday morning thought that it was ler of a damp opening of the week. Many had dry seats in the cars, and others who did not oare to sit down ; in a puddle of water were willing to j stand. But the limit was reached ! when, In boarding or alighting from the cars, the water ran down from the eaves Into one's nock. During the day the Connecticut company replaced quite a number of its cars with Box cars and on the Lighthouse line four of these cars had been, shifted, much to the thankfulness of passengers. What was particularly aggravating was for a pa-ssenger to run for a box car,' only to be told that it was going to the barn. But the company did ,its best under the circumstances and to day more box cars are likely to be running, as rain Is due to-day, all right, according to the weather report. LEW FIELDS. Supported by a score of principals, and four score singing and , dancing girls, Lew Fields, America's foremost low comedian, will "be seen in this city at the Hyperion on Thursday, Friday and Saturday with -Saturday matinee, September 26, 27 and 28, presenting his latest musical comedy offering, "The Girl Behind the Counter.".. And on this topic of the weather, while It is not officially denominated the line storm, it must be It, however. This by an old gentleman who has made tabs on the weather for sixty years: ( ' "I don't care what those ' weather sharps say this Is (the line etorro and don't you tforglt' it. You can sfty in your paper that this Isthe line storm and no mistake. ' I've been watching the weather now going on nigh to six ty years and I know what I am talk ling about, With the wind backing 'round as It did and ether conditions that I have ndticed, it is Just like the storm that comes at about the time the sun Is going over "the line,, Tes, this is a pretty 'hard storm, but it's nothing like some of the line storms I've seen in years gone by." Walter S. Bishop of Grand avenue, the well known' electrician, had men engaged in repairing the elevator Jn the Federal building yesterday. Mr. Bishop has; repaired this elevator many time, .but some how or other It doesn't stay repaired. It Js now expected that services will be held in St. Rose's Catholic church for the first time in the engine house In Fairmont avenue next Sunday morn ing.

"Eight Bells," that, clever, rollicking musical burlesque which has charmed and delighted thousands for the last decade, made Its annual visit to the New Haven theater last night and met with the same hearty reception that is always accorded the Bryne Bros, wherever they spppar. The show has been .named the "New Eight Bells, but so far as con be discovered there is little change in the plot-of the story which is good enough the way it is. An Irish tourist falls In love with a Mrs. Blotter, who runs a boarding school for girls, and who literally mops up the floor with the tourist. . A Ger man' across the street, who properly should be running a delicatessen store, is conducting a school for boys and when one of the boys falls In love with one of the gay young school girls and the couple elope there Is something do ing right off the bat. They are followed on their elopement by the school teach ers and all the students of both schools, a short vacation being grant ed presumably and the education of , the young idea, is continued on a voy- , age across the briny deep. I On the trip across the ocean there is i fu.n galore; especially Is 'this the case : when the storm sets In and the vessel as well as its occupants performs some marvelous acrobatic feats. When the boat turns bottom up there is still frot.plakosriC-Gl.hsffh.dshrdluuu 't more fun as well as many clever ' sunts. The carriage scene and the ' students amongst the statuary also : causes much merriment amongst the I audience. I Some more or less clever specialties are introduced during the course of the tumbling acrobatic work. Miss Rose Washburn, a near contralto, rendered some popular songs, and Rice and Shrock gave an exhibition of fancy bicycle riding. Rose and Mary Read ing were seen in a dancing specialty. For a good night's fun, "Eight Bells" is worth seeing. It will be played again to-night and at the Wednesday matinee and evening performances. MEIGS fc CO.

This little play, which is full of comedy, and love affairs allows not a dull 'minute from t'he first line to the very final word, and to make comment on the good work of the cast would be to mention the particular merit of every member. Each one was equal to the part assigned, and Tlayed it as if it were his or her very own self. The play itself is one of Mr. Carle, ton's most entertaining productions, and calls for pretty gowns and attrac tive stage settings, both requirements being filled to the letter by the com- pany yesterday. The piece was well received, and the company enthusiasti cally applauded at both performances yesterday and the sale of seats for the rest of the week indicates a popularity of the "Butterflies" that will equal that of last week. There is a performance every afternoon and evening. THE COMIQUE. The most pretentious and the safest of the nlcolet type of theaters, was thrown open to the public yesterday at 1:30 p. tn when The Cbmique, located In Poll's Bijou theater building, opened its doors. , , , A spacious lobby ieads through the Bijou building to the rear, where the Comique has been fitted up. It is a cosy little structure all by itself con taining a seating capacity of nearly 500.

J, Fisher has been placed in charge of the Comique and the enter tainment will consist of the latest illus trated songs,. sung by well known sing ers and motion pictures The admission will be five cents' and the shows win. run continuous from 1:30 to 10:80 p. m The opening week's pictures in the motion series Includes The Athletic Girl, the. Bargain Fiend, being a de piction of the habit so prevailing in this country, O Kind Grandfather, being a pathetic and comical series, and the ham Beggar. , A penny arcade In the lobby provides diversion of entertainment and plenty of eleetrlo lights will make this place attractive. Persons who have watch ed the progress of the work on the Bijou building and were curious to know what it all meant are noW let in to the secret and no doubt the Comique will soon take its place as one of the places where the New Haven puWIo seeks Its entertainment.
