and Avenue Congregational Church to Sell Ferry Street Prop

"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
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
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
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.
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,

"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
'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 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.

"The Butterflies" at the Bijou proved
an attraction to good audiences in spite
of the rainy day, and most enjoyable
performances were given by the Stock
company, yesterday afternoon and ev
ening. 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 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

places where the New Haven puWIo
