Why Mr, Archer Threw
Away His Crutches
Boyhood's Memories Last Life-Long Now, at 28,
Strong and Hearty Because of Good Blood.
"Dayton, Ohio, Jan. 10, 1909.
"C. Xi Hood Co., Lowell, Mass.
"Gentlemen :
"The memory of what Hood's
Bar&aparilla did for me when I was
a boy wOl go with me all through
life. I suffered from hip disease
for eight years, having three run
ning sores on my hip. Every win
ter I was confined to my bed for
six or seven weeks at a time.
This trouble began when I was six
years of age. and my parents did
an they could to help me. They
tried at least a dozen different
physicians, but none of them did
me any good. In fact I grew
worse all the time, and was com
plied to walk on crutches. Then
I commenced taking Hood's Sar
aparUla. It was soon evident
"Hood's SarsapariUa effects its wonderful cures, not simply
because it contains Barsaparllla, but because it combines the utmost
remedial values of more than 20 different ingredients, each greatly
strengthened and enriched by this peculiar combination. These ingre
dients) are the very remedies that successful physicians prescribe for
the same diseases and ailments. There Is no real scbst : t lit for Hood's
SarsapariUa. If urged to buy any preparation saUl t; be "just as
good," yon may be sure It Is inferior, costs less to make, and yields the
dealer a larger profit.

SOCIAL
At the celebration of the 25th an
niversary of the organization of Sea
side club, last night. Judge A.B. Beers
in responding to a toast, at the con
clusion of the banquet which was giv
en, dwelt for sometime upon the fact
that the club is the only one of its
age, size and importance that was
started and has always continued upon
sl cold water basis. The most famous
other club that attempted the same
program lasted, he said, but 40 days
end foundered on a rock.
The dinrar was served by Steward
William Crowley and was enjoyed by
some 200 persons. Jerome May's Banjo
orchestra furnished music. One of the
treats of the evening was a speech by
Dr. George L. Porter, who reviewed
the history of the club. President T
S. Willett was toastmaster and of
ficiated pleasantly. Frank Miller, in a
conversational way. described the
origin of the club. He said it started
in Nathaniel Wheeler's barn and was
really a horse club. He told some in
teresting anecdotes of gentlemen who
owned horses, who used to exaggerate
the speed and other capacities of their
steeds. David F. Read spoke Interest
ingly and briefly. Hie talk had to do
especially with the charter members.
Henry Parrot t and Judge William H
Kelsey also spoke, the latter reviewing
some financial history. He said that
when the club left Its quarters on
Main street it had S12.000. The site of
the present club was purchased. By
the care and economy of the earlier
members the organization has attained
its present importance and financial
well being.
Mrs. Jessie Bryant Gerard of South
Norwalk gave an interesting talk on
"Forestry." yesterday afternoon, be
fore the Authors' Club, which was en
tertained by Mrs. Frederick V. RhoaJes
at her home, 1815 Noble avenue. Mrs.
Gerard had maps, charts' and dia
grams with which she illustrated her
remarks. She said that the "dry
spells" of New England summers were
directly due to forest denudation. Her
address was Instructive and Interesting
and she was given a vote of thank?.
Refreshments were served.
Comedies presented entirely by young
women were the attraction at the en
tertainment given under the auspices
of the Y. W. C. A. in the chapel of
North church, last evening. Misses
Kerr. Decker, Tallon, Allen, Trenting
Raymond, Herdina. Kerchulis Bouton
and Banks participated in the playlet
entitled "A Business Meeting." which
was a bit of banter directed against
what women do not know about par
liamentary procedure. "Maidens All
Forlorn" depicted the anguish of sev
eral young women at a summer resort
without a man. and their deeper sor
row when the much advertised doctor
arrives and is found to be one more
woman, that Is to say, a female doctor.

The Fellow in a Custom
Tailored Suit that Fits
Gets the Call.
There are a great many people in
the world saving a few dollars on a
suit by buying it ready made and los
ing ten fold the amount in satisfac
tion. A man that buys ready made
clothes never feels sure of them al
though he has been told so by the
merchant who sold them to him.
There's always that feeling "Well,
they weren't made to my measure and
I'm afraid they don't fit me." In fre
quent cases his surmise is hitting the
nail squarely on. the head and even if
the clothes may possibly fit he hasn't
that feeling of surety about them that
makes him at ease when he's wearing
them. With good custom tailored
clothes the kind that Wheale makes
at 1042 Main street, you're always
sure of the apeparance. quality and
fit. Made from the best materials,
shrunk by Wheale's exclusive method
so they will not shrink after you put
them on, and built on principles that
can have but one result perfect fit
Wheale made clothing are the acme
of perfection. If you are buying ready
made clothes you can't imagine the
satisfaction and contentment you're
missing as regards wearing apparel.
Have a tailor all your own don't let
a stranger in a big factory where they
turn clothing out like pins or tin pails
make your clothes have Wheale do
it for you. The cost is not heavy and
you're sure of the style, fit and be
comingness of the suit he makes for
you. Clothing stamps its wearer al
ways. They can say all they want to

there's a line-up of young men look

That perennial favorite, "The Old
Homestead", will be the offering for
this evening, and the theatre should
be filled to repletion to welcome this
annual visit of the most wonderful
success of all stage offerings. For
the past 23 years "The Old Home
stead", and for 14 years prior to that,
its progenitor, "Joshua Whitcomb",
have been amusing and delighting au
diences the country over. There is
not, in all the big United States, a
town or city of any size, which has
not repeatedly seen and welcomed the
appearances of this grp.nd old New
England play, and today it is as strong
a favorite and as welcome a visitor as
during the first years of its triumphs.
The presentation this evening will
have all the advantages of the original
production, a cast of rare excellence
having been personally selected by Mr.
Thompson for the proper presentation
of the play. It Is the same cast with
which Mr. Thompson himself appears
when the Tlay visits New York, and
he would appear with it here were it
not for his advanced age.
Another beautiful set of those splen
did animated pictures and illustrated
songs will be provided for Monday
afternoon and evening, and there is
little question that they will be fully
as enjoyable as any - which preceded
them. Everyone knows how finely
these splendid pictures are shown at
Smith's; it is the only place in the city
where the pictures can be shown in a
proper manner, and where they can
be really enjoyed. The same liberal
hours, and) the same little prices as
before will prevail.
Next Tuesday evening the American
humorist, Fred Niblo, will present
"Russia, from the Black Sea. to Si

around the world. Those who have
had the pleasure of accompanying Mr.
Niblo on his personally conducted pic

It was a busy night with the pollc
commissioners, last night, when they
took up charges against twjry special
and two regular patrolmen. Allison H.
Sanford and Frank Loperci, specials,
are charged with obtruding themselves
upon a dance given by the St. Joseph's
Sick Benefit society, in Ciglar's Hall,
about a month ago. It is alleged that
they wore citizen's clothes, with their
police badges pinned on outside, and
that they demanded S3 each in default
of which they promised to stop the
festivity. Lieut. Redgate Investigated
the complaint and found It well found
ed. The charges against Patrolmen
Alpheus C. Goulden and John Flahav- ,
en grow out of the assault upon
Michael Kbsa, who was kicked, bo that
he died, by the aged merchant, Henry
Beisel. The charges were preferred by
Commissioner Coughlin, who said that
the policemen were in a neighboring
candy etore when the assault occurred,
that no report of the matter had ever
been made to the department by the
men. and that the arrest of BelfieT
should have followed upon speedy in
formation. Flahaven asserts that he
investigated anj told the boy that his
father should secure a warrant for the
arrest of Beisel. The charges will be
heard at the next mating of the
board.
Commissioner Coughlin offered a
resolution under which any superior of
ficer of the department who is absent
for any cause from his duty for 15
days in the year shall not be entitled
to his annual vacation without the
special permission of the board. Com
missioner Hurley voted against the
resolution, which was adopted 3 to 1
The resolution further provides that in
case a member of the department is
ill for five days the department physi
cian shall visit him; that any superior
officer who Is absent by reason of ill
ness insufficient to incapicitate him
shall have such absence deducted froi
his annual leave: that no patrolman
absent for any reason who fails tc
turn in his days off ticket for such
absence shall be paid except upon the
report of the physician that he is unfit
for duty.
President Hill and Supt. Birmingham
will detail the men to be sent to th
Locomobile shop to learn to operate
the new automobile patrol wagon. Th
board agreed upon Patrick Lynch and
John McGirr for the Job. Patrolmen
George North and Charles Wheeler will
also learn and serve as extras.

special policeman for 20 years, resign
e8 and turned in his badge.
