It Is understood that Superintendent Rlsley of New Britain and Superintendent Lee of Meriden have come to terms and adopted a course by which their patrons will not be dissatisfied. The petition will undoubtedly be sent to the com pany to-morrow morning. There was an Interesting meeting last evening of the basketball enthu siasts, and plans were mado for the future.

L Frank Vlerlng yesterday began the work of tearing down the old "Union Hall." Sunday the old bell in the steeple was rung for the last time. It was made In 1868 by the Jones foundry and, though a huge crack impairs its tone, there are many who remember its one time mel ody. The building is 40x70 feet. Mr. Vlerlng figures on having it down in six weeks. The lumber is being dis posed of in small lots. With the passing of "Union Hall" the town is deprived of one of its old landmarks. The building was once used by the Methodists as a church. Before Canton built a town hall the building was used for town meetings, caucuses, etc. Total $42,241,687 It should be pointed out that of these expenditures, the New Haven will be reimbursed by its subsidiaries to the amount of approximately $10, 000,000. In a nutshell and In round figures the New Haven has substantially $20, 000,000 of cash on hand, Including $S, 000, 000 due next month on ac count of the French loan. About $41,000,000 is due on account of capit al issues, making total cash resources of $61,000,000. Against this there will be a call for $42,000,000 for various Improvements and additions, leaving a net balance of nearly $19,000,000. This Is the completion of a finan cial policy that has called for $200, 000,000 of cash. It Is an astonishing fact that the New Haven road could have been able to finance this enormous sum of money and meet the carrying charges upon It with the ease with which they have been met. It is all the most astonishing be cause of the fact that a large part of this expenditure has not yet begun to earn any money. For Instance, the 232,000 which has been spent for electrification of the New York divi sion has hardly yet begun to effect the economies and increased business it will ultimately result in. Similarly the six tracking of the Harlem river branch, upon which $7,000,000 has al ready been spent, and $3,000,000 Is yet to be spent, is not yet completed. This branch will be one of the very biggest earners of the entire New Ha ven system and the economies which Its construction will effect should reach very large proportions. Similarly, the $40,000,000 which has been or Is being spent for new equip ment has not yet begun to earn any money. If New England Is to prosper, or even to hold its own, It Is Inevitable that the effect of this expenditure will be to increase very materially the gross receipts, and particularly the profits of New Haven road from now on. 1 Our Special Shoes for Men We have made a special effort this Fall to give our Men Custom ers the very best shoe to be had at $4.00, and we have succeeded.

Distress After Eating Do You Ever Feel as Though Yon Had Swallowed a Brick Instead of a Meal? That heavy, bloated, stuffed-up, lead-like feeling which you often ex perience after eating a meal Is posi tive proof that something is wrong with your digestive organs. They are becoming weak and fagged out. There is a lack of gastric and other digestive juices. The food Is no long er properly digested and it forms a heavy load on your stomach, so that nearly every meal causes you misery and distress. If you are In this condition it means that you have dyspepsia in some form and may have had it for some time, though you didn't realize It. Now is the time to check it, for if you don't it will surely develop into worse forms of dyspepsia and other stomach troubles, which may have serious results. But that Is not all. The stomach is the hub of the body, and an Injury to it is an injury to all. A weak stom ach causes tho whole body to suffer. Tho action of the heart, liver and kid neys becomes sluggish. The brain becomes inactive. The nerves be come unstrung. The blood loses its vitality. The only safe, sure, scientific meth od of restoring your stomach to Its healthy, normal state is to use Stu art's Dyspepsia Tablets, which will act as a substitute in digesting your food, thus giving your stomach a much needed rest. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have stood the tests for years. Thousands have used them and been cured. Phy sicians all over the United States rec ommend them. They are not a secret remedy. They contain fruit and veg etable essences, pure concentrated tinctures of hydrastls, golden seal, lactose, and pure aseptic pepsin. These combined ingredients will di gest tho coarsest kind of food and do the work Just as well asany good, strong, healthy stomach will. Don't take our word for it. Ask your physician, your druggist or any of your friends who may have used Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. But you don't even have to take their word for it. Find out for yourself. Send for a free sample package and try them. That's tho surest way to learn the truth. Then, If you are satisfied, you can go to your nearest druggist and get a fifty-cent box.
