NO SUPERSTITION AT THISJANQUET AH Sorts of Hoodoos are Defied by Jolly Thirteen Club Two tables of 13 guests each were filled at the annual banauet of the superstition-defying Thirteen Club at T -aHmnnn 'a shnrp 'tlO'ISC last evening'. Everything: that could conveniently be arranged to show disdain for the pop ular hoodoos was in evidence, with open umbrellas. 13 rung ladders, skulls with 13 lighted candles, broken mir rors, and many other things that are generally supposed to presage disas ter. Among the visiting guests were: Hon. P. H. Spader. H". G. Gedney and O. C. Lyon, president of the Mamaro nack Savings Bank: R. H. Orr and S. Y. St. John of Stamford; Hon. John W. Allen; TV. E.

The banauet was one of the most successful in the history of the club, which was organized in New York, Jan. 13, 1886, under- a charter granted by the original Thirteen Club of New York city. There were 13 courses. One of the most significant happenings of the evening was the death of one of the skull socketed candles. The guest to whom this candle was as signed regarded it as a huge joke, but none will tell who it was for fear of spreading alarm among more supersti tious companions. Several of the charter members of the club were present at the dinner, including the chief ruler. T. B. Beech er, and Charles W. Fox. Horace H. Jackson was the vice ruler of the second thirteen and Hon. P. H- Spader. "Mayor of Mamaroneck", was the vice ruler of the "left over" table.

JUVENILE DELINQUENTS VICTIMS OF RAD TEETH SAYS HYGIENIC DOCTOR (Special from United Press.) New York, May 14. That a great percentage of Juvenile delinquents are victims of bad teeth rather than en vironment was the declaration of Dr. George W. Coley of Chester, at the session of the Dental Hygienic Con gress now in session in this city. "Seventy per cent, of all children enter school as incompetents," he de clared, "and the statement applies not only to children of the poorer classes but to all. They are incompetents because their parents were not train ed to care for their teeth. "Bad teeth cause bad stomachs. The body becomes filled with bac teria, disease and infection follows." The congress will appoint a general committee to secure municipal co operation through the United States in making dental science part of city government.

Miss Agnes Leavy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Leavy of Walnut Tree Hill was tendered a surprise in honor of her 12th birthday last Wed nesday evening, 30 guests being pres ent. The young lady seemed quite equal to the occasion and greeted each guest cordially. The evening was delightfully passed in the enjoy ment of piano, and mandolin selec tions, vocal chorus and games. Deli cious lemonade and a variety of cake, sweets and ice cream were served. The young hostess was very nicely re membered with many pretty tokens of esteem. The table in the dining room was tastefully arranged with the regulation birthday cake containing 12 candles in the center. Lavender and white lilacs were used in the de corations which were pretty. The 13 social held under the aus pices of the Girls' Athletic associa tion of the Newtown High School, Friday evening was a very fine suc cess and exceeded all expections of the young people who had worked faithfully and well, and who must feel duly compensated for their ef forts. The 13 booths prettily deco rated with flowers, the trimming of the hall and platform all presented a neat appearance. On the stage was arranged a large frame in which ap peared the 13 sweethearts each of the bride and groom, the latter begin im personated by Herman N.

The different cos tumes were fine, all quite in fitting with each picture. Some of the char acters were greeted with great ap plause, and in the grand march fol lowing the program many words of admiration were heard for the little school girl and school boy who seem ed to be quite unconscious of their popularity. Altogether the evening was most enjoyable for all and a great success financially. Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Turner of New York have opened their summer home at Taunton. Mrs. F. J.

D. Bowers Plays Best Golf of His Career. New York, May 14. There was the dickens to pay in the first round for the chief cup in the annual golf tournament at Fox Hills yesterday. Jerome D. Travers, young G. W. White and A. F. Kammer, the Staten Island champion, were metaphorical ly swept off the face of the globe or otherwise relegated to the beaten eight set. In the case of Jerome Travers it was the veteran "Spotty" Bowers, up to his old tricks again, for few golfers of today remember the time when he unexpectedly elimi nated the late Girlwood Stewart at Seabright and upset calculations at Baltusrol by defeating Findley S. Douglas on the latter's first appear ance in this country. G. W. White was effaced by G. G. Baxter, un known except to his club mates aU the public links at Forest .Park, Brooklyn, while A. F. Kammer, from whom the Fox Hills contingent ex pected doughty deeds, receiced a crushing defeat at the hand of Louis A. Hamilton, the Englewood war horse. All these victories, or defeats, which ever way one regards the situation were the result of tip top golf. S. D. Bowers lost his balance completely on the homeward journey by polish ing it off in 35, and at that only beat the Montclair champion one up. The latter won the first three holes, and naturally became over confident. As a result he was but one up at the turn, where he was 39. Coming back Mr. Travers won the eleventh in a perfect four and was two up. After this, however, the veteran from Bridgeport was seized with an extraordinary spasm, its first symptoms were disclosed at the twelfth hole, where he holed out from off the green in two. Then, after winning the long thirteenth by his op ponent's indifferent play, he ran down a long put at the- fourteenth for three, and became one up. He supplement ed this by stealing half at the fif teenth, in holing from off the green, pnd the climax came at the short six teenth, where Mr. Travers missed a four foct put for a half in three. Mr. Bowers was now dormie, playing the seventeenth, which Mr. Travers won, by running down a pretty fifteen foot putt for three. At the home hole the Montclair man still had a fighting chance, as he had a five spot putt for the hole, which he missed.

Pitcher "Len" Marcello and infielder George Trelease will report tomor row to the locals. Trelease i3 a crack infielder form the Brookside Club and can also be used in the box. Banta playing first for Ansonia has been spoken of as the hardest hitter in the league. Two applications have been received by the President for admission to the league. One is from Union City, the other from the team, formerly the St. Joseph's of this city, wishing to re present East Bridgeport. No action has been taken regarding the above to date. Sect. Dunigan is busy looking for engagements for Saturday in exhibi tion games out of town. Swords is showing up in good form in the local infield while he is also beginning to hit. Parfett is showing form as a twirl er and generally does see to it that he gets into condition when it comes his turn to work. The New Haven club complimented the locals on their heavy hitting, sure fielding group of outfielders. William Brooks has signed to um pire the games for the locals, and will be seen tomorrow in his new role; talk about the best none of the lo cals have anything on him. For the strangers we will state that the local diamond is at the end of the East Main St. trolley line.

(Special from United Press.) Brighton Motordrome, N. Y., May 14. With one man dead, and an other seriously injured, the dirt track on which the 24 hour automobile race was begun at 9 o'clock last night was cut up badly by the racing cars and more fatal accidents were feared. William Bradley, mechanician in the Marion car No. 5, is dead and Jack Towers, mechanician in the Buick No. 4, is seriously injured, both their cars having left the track and crashed through the fence on the turn at the back stretch, the most dangerous spot on the track. The machines were little damaged and were hauled back on the track and continued. Hubert Anderson, driving the Mar ion machine and John DeWitt at the wheel of the Buick, escaped injury in the accident. In the thirteenth hour of the race the Cole car, No. 6, went through the fence on the turn into the home stretch. Mechanician IcGruder was injured while W. Endicott, the driver, received a severely wrenched leg and was forced to withdraw from the race. McGruder will recover. Two hours before Endicott had sent his car through the fence but neither he nor his mechanician had been in jured. Fifteen thousand persons witnessed the start of the race. At daylight the cars settled into a steady grind. Fiat No. 9 with De Paulma at the wheel was in the lead at 7 o'clock with the Ranier No. 11, Owen driving, and Simplex No. 8, with Walpole at the wheel next, well ahead of the other cars.

SOMETHING ABOUT GIRLS, OPENING DRAMA AT POLI'S Manager Poli will inaugurate the summer season of stock productions at Poli's. Monday next, when the Poli Stock Company will make its bow to the theatre-going public of this city and suburbs. Greater and grander than ever the company Is promised to be for the coming season and the return of many of the favorites, headed by Alice Flem ing and John E. Ince. with a most ca pable supporting company, augurs well for the rare dramatic treat in store of the playgoing public. By means of a voting contest the patrons of Poli's have selected the Clyde Fitch comedy "Girls" for the opening production, and it will be presented on a scale of magnificence not excelled by the orig inal company which ran for two years at Daly's Theatre. New York. "Girls" is the Clyde Fitch comedy originally produced at Daly's Theatre. New York city, where its novelty of theme and brilliancy of dialogue caus ed the Manhattan critics to unani mously hail it as the brightest work ever offered by the famius playwright. It scored a very decided triumph with th public, and ran an entire season to enormous business and were revived the following year for another run with no diminution of interest. The Messrs. Shubert, through special ar rangement with whom Manager Poli will produce the play, have now four companies on tour with it, playing to splendid business in the South and West. The first scene of the play shows a studio occupied by three bachelor girls, who have vowed eternal hatred of useless man. The leader of the trio, Pamela Gordon, is a stenog rapher; the youngest, Violet Lands dow.ne, is an illustrator, and also does typewriting for a living; and the third, Kate West, is a free lance writer with aspirations for the stage. They owe for rent of their apartment and have borrowed fifteen dollars from their air shaft neighbor. Lucille Purcelle, an elocutionist. The janitor is inclined to drink and disrespect, the steam pipes are typical of flats, and they have a near neighbor who is taking vocal lessons. The studio is furnished with one bed. a couch and a Morris chair, decidedly uncomfortable. Pamela has been unsuccessful in finding a position, Kate has had a promise of a trial at acting, an Violet is enjoying several days of indolence. Shortly after the play begins Pamela has a discussion with the janitor and comes out second best. The postman brings a letter to Pamela with the offer of a position with Sprague & Holt, leading attorneys, and he is pro nounced a welcome visitor. The girls prepare for bed and are in the midst of a dispute as to whose turn it is to occupy the 'Morris chair when the door bursts open and a "man" enters. He has been having dinner with a married woman whose elderly hus band returns unexpectedly. Pamela orders him to leave and he is finally induced to crawl into the window across the air shaft by means of a board provided by Pamela. The girls then do the famous disrob ing scene, quiet their nerves and tuck themselves into bed. The second act takes place in the office of Sprague & Holt and finds Pamela as a stenographer and Violet as her assistant. Being unable to impress the senior partner. Sprague, with the dignity of her position, Pa mela resigns in the middle of the fore noon just as the junior partner re turns. He proves to be the man of the night before episode and is already in love with Pamela. Mrs. Dennett, young and silly, calls to start divorce proceedings against her husband and Mr. Dennett, old and unusually silly, calls for a like puroose. Their meet ing and Violet's too liberal taking of dictation leads to the discharge of the duo with two weeks' salary due. The last act of course rights matters and there is a happy ending. Miss Fleming will play the role of "Pamela Gordon", who with the slight excep tion of foolishly hating man is a tpyis ally bright American girl, and Mr. Ince will play the role of Edgar Holt, the junior partner, whose skillful courtship finally wins the girl of her choice. The young typewriter, Violet Lansdowne. will be played by Mar garet Lawrence, the new ingenue of the company, and Caroline Locke is idealy cast in the role of Kate West. Mr. Daly will play the woman hating Frank Loot, and the other roles are in most capable hands. It need not be added that Stage Director Meldon will give the play that attention to detail in everything for which he is noted. Seats for the entire week are now on sale. To economize floor space some Ger man manufacturers are turning out high speed engines mounted on top of horizontal boilers. THE SMITH-MURRAY CO.
