Mints INCORPORATED OUTFITTERS TO MEN WOMEN 2c CHILDREN BRIDGEPORT. CONN. r -ervi by M EASTON SKELETON REMAINS MYSTERY Belief Entertained That Remains May be ef Maggie M'Gaire, One Well Known. Felice Say if Skeleton is not Clara Chap man's it Most be Maggie M'Gnire's. The efforts of Coroner Doten to iden Bfy the skeleton of a woman found in Easton two months ago have not yet brought results. The faded and tat tered letter bearing- the address of a Derby woman which was found with i the bones has resulted in no clue to t the Identity of the woman, who lay I down In the isolated field' and died, fin the Judgment of the officers the Fearch has now narrowed down to two women who have been missing from this city for about the period of time the bones on " the Kaston farm have lain bleaching. The suspicion that the remains might toe those of Clara Chapman, who was well known in the city at one time and who .figured in the sensational capture of a band of robbers who threw a safe from a train between this city and tCew York, has not developed. Mrs. Chapman was a large woman but not tall, and the skeleton might have been hers. Mrs. Chapman was the wife of n bank robber who afterwards died in a. French prison after he was detected in a daring scheme of robbery. Recently the belief has gained ground among the police hat the skeleton found in Boston is that of Maggie Mc Guire, a mysterious woman who lived In this city for years and whose home end friends have always been unknown to the police. The McGuire woman was a mystery. She could be seen up on the streets at almost any time of the day or night. No one knew where she lived. One night she was arrested toy a police officer and brought to toeadquarters' where she was released. She wore spectacles and always walk- ed at a rapid gait, looking neither to the right nor to the left. She never answered question unless obliged to do so. She was always neat in ap pearance and habitually dressed in black. The garments which were Haken from the blaneed bones when (they were found are now in the pos session of the selectmen of Easton and (they correspond with those seen on the f McGuire woman when she last appear '. ed on the streets here. She disappeared about three years igo and has not been heard from since, fiupt. Birmingham and several of the policemen who remember her believe that if the skeleton found in Easton ,s not that of Clara Chapman it is that of Mt)g?ie McGuire. The woman whose address was fo.und on the faded envelope with the bones ffcas been dead for three or four years.

Prof. William Tler,--y Pickering's idea of communicating rith Mors with signals flashed by a 10,000.000 set of mirrors is treated with amused skepticism by the general body of astronomers now in Paris attending the International Congress to Map the (Heavens..

Winsome Isabel Butler the skating star who is performing on real ice at Poli's theatre this week taught the fair sex of New York's 400 how to skate with grace and skill all last winter. Being the best woman skater in the country and desiring to interest her sex in the sport she yielded to the en treaties of Mrs. Irving Brokaw and Mrs. Ernest Iselin and had a class at the St. Nicholas rink which did more to create the interest in ice skating among the women of New Tork than anything else had done for several years. Miss Butler expressed a desire to enter the world's skating contest last year but the cruel men debarred her because of her sex. She has chal lenged all of the prominent women skaters of this country and Canada to contests but they have not seen fit to risk defeat. The skating on ice is a real novelty and is booked to run all through the hot summer months. It is no surprise that Pat Rooney's musical comedy "Simple Simon Sim ple" is taking the audiences in this city by storm. It has broken the rec ord for attendance in every playhouse where it has been seen. And that is going some. The act that opens the show this week is a real feature in itself. Sid ney Baxter, Scotland's aerial cyclist creates genuine sensations when he rides on one wheel upon a swinging slack wire. Besides there is his illum inated cycle which looks like a new kind of aerial chariot as he rides in mid-air with the house darkened. a: Everett Butterfield, former star of the Poli Stock Co., is just as much a favorite with the local public as ever. His song skit is making a hit at each performance. He has been with Bra dy & Grlsmer's "Man of the Hour" Company until a few weeks ago. The automatons used by Hugh J. Emmett, the California ventriloquist are the most life like ever used in a similar act in this city. Mr. Emmett is a clever performer and outside of his work as a ventriloquist his imita tions of voices and the cries of ani mals upon the violin are of the first order. SMITH'S Now-a-days. as theatrical managers are looking high and low for sensa tional dramatic material when the book of the day is quickly scissored and pasted into a play, and the latest tragic police news is manufactured in to a melodrama Joseph and William W. Jefferson continue on their popular and successful way with "The Rivals," in which the human heart is deliciously involved and laughs are the jolly com panions that lead us from scene to scene to the very last act. Nothing meletricious nothing prurient nothing "advanced" figures in this delightful play; it is clean, happy and whole some. Local theatre-goers win have an opportunity to witness the magnif icence and multi-phased beauties of the acting of these histrionic artists and will understand and appreciate it and have the rare satisfaction of knowing that the Jeffersons have add ed to the gladness and gaiety of the nation without giving the shadow of offense to the purest minded person. The comedy is mounted in elegant fashion and the supporting company will be one of the best that has ever visited this city. This classical offer ing comes this evening, and the thea tre should be filled to the doors. c No part of the country affords such good material for a real American play as the West.

Hartford. April 21. The Judiciary committee assigned for hearing yester day afternoon seven bills relating to telephone rates, but only two of these developed much discussion. The first was introduced by Represen.tive Gil lette of Hebron and provided that no discrimination in charges shall be made between subscribers in the same exchange. He said that Hebron sub scribers are required to pay 5 cents extra for the privilege of talking with any subscriber in the city of Willi mantic. The other towns in the WIIH mantic exchange. Ashford and Will- mgton. have the same restriction, any subscriber being- allowed to talk with any other subscriber in his own town without extra charge, but being re quired to pay 5 cents if he talks with any one in Willimantic. General Contracting Agent Knight of. the Southern New England Telephone Company made a somewhat peculiar explanation, saying that the matter of finance did not enter into the question so far as the company is concerned. The extra charge is made, he said, for tha purpose of restricting somewhat the use of the wires and thereby giv ing a better service when the wires are in use. The second bill was one introduced by Representative Kyle of Bethel and arose from conditions in that borough, which is near the city of Danbury, where the exchange for both city and borough is located. The rates are higher for Bethe! than for like service in Danbury. Up to the beginning of the present session of the Legislature private wire service cost $20 more in Bethel than in Danbury. the some pro portion holding good for the other forms of service. The matter of a change was taken up by the Bethel Board of Trade and when the present bill was prepared the telephone com--pany cut the rate in two. making the charge for private service in Bethel S10 more than in Danbury. Mr. Fiench. for the telephone com pany went into an exhaustive explana tion, saying that the company is doing its best for Bethel under the circum stances. Bethel subscribers had de clined a proposition for an exchange in their borough with a toll charge of 5 cents for Danbury calls. He said however, that if 200 more subscribers should be added ill Bethel the com pany would establish an exchange there regardless of the wishes of Bethel subscribers. The D.
