LOADS AT FREIGHT YARDS Bigger Demand This Year Than Ever Before for These ., Greens. If there are any people in New Ha ven who would like to plan a mid winter trip to Lakewood or some other pleasure resort of similar nature, where the pines are murmuring and the hemlocks are pining, and who find that the recent financial stress has xnado such a thing impossible this sea son, should -take a little Jaunt down around fhe freight yards at the rall- road station these days where there are carloads o small pine, trees ar riving' and beinfe unloaded for the com ing Christmas season' every day. It eems a shame that , New Haveners have to pay 73 cents here for the same odoriferous sprig that the lumbermen of Maine would thank them for cut- itlng and taki.ig away and call It un- iderbrush, but' the children demand it and demand makes the price. Of. past years the sight of one of these carloads of small pines rolling Into New Barren with a foot or two of enow atop them,- jwhich has been carried all the way from Maine, but has got cinder besmudged en route, has not been an Infrequent one. This year the snow seasot has been a bit back ward and this is not the case. The trees are of excellent quality this year. Santa has made his selections well. Soon in front of every groeary and flo rist store there will be a string of the , green trees waiting to be sold, and on Christmas morn there ..will,, be thou sands of eagsr little people waiting breathlessly for'the parlor doors to be opened after all the family Is dressed and ready, when there will be dls-, closed the most beautiful ' of sights' such a childhood never forgets. There will be carloads of these trees passing through New Haven from now on., , Some one has called them "Santa" tpeci:tlp." The New Haven road an nually 'handles several hundred thou sand" trees. ' . ' Besides all the trees there will ' be the boxes and.crates of holly and mis tletoe. Of the latter the supply is an nually decreasing, but for kissing pur poses Dan Cupid has' decreed that a twig is as good as, a crateful and so what Is Idst in quantity; is made up in . preciousness in each home. It will not be long 'before the holly "Will have, been deftly 'turned into wreaths, which from where they will be haaging in 'the' windows of the Resi dential districts will permeate the tporit of the Tulelog and of Noel ; out into the streets, a cheery greeting to the passerby. 1 . . '. The fir tree ' industry Just before Christmas time is by no means an old one. It is said that last year there were 1,200,000 firs shipped from Maine; this year the shipments .will. amount to 1,500,000. Allowing an average price of 1 -rit w Mi'itigjiir the trees delivered at the station, this year's trees will brine in a revenue" of 1112,600' to theack- 4. , M I 1 of physical .

The sale of seats will this year be at the Woolsey hall box office. There has been a large demand for seats from out of town, largar' than ever before for an oratorio production, not excepting even for the Bach Pas sion music, and that was a record sale all round.- . , , If this fact can be taken as criterion Woc'sey hall will hold one of the larg es' audiences ever gathered "wilhfh its claesic walls. ' Everything is completed in the mat ter of arrangements for seating and filrpoElns of and receiving the great chorus, behind the stage at Woolsey hall' on Thursday, and this has been no easy matter, as there has never before been need for accommodating at the utmost little more than half of the number engaged in giving "The iirfllah." . (When the audience rises as is the time-honored custom for the great Hallelujah chorus, nearly 601 persons will respond to Dr Parker's warning baton, and under all this impressive volume of music will roll the thunder- (.ii'ig tones of the Newberry organ with i all its most Impressive stops pulled jout.
