Mayflower's Mast Supports Schoolroom
That a picture of the Madonna pro
voked the assault made by Burns De
tective. Fred C. Bozeman upon Frank
Cozza, durins the ice raids last June,
is the answer which Bozeman makes
to Cozza's suit complaint filed in the
Superior court. Boeman admits the
aasault but insists Uuut it was in line
of his duty as a policeman of the
local force to clean up the vice of
the city: He adds furtuer that when
he was questioning Cozaa as to his
relations. with a woman, Cozza took a
picture of the Madonna from his
pocket and called up the Madonna to
witness the truth of his statements.
There Bozeman says his patience end
ed and he assaulted Cozza, although
he did not seriously injure him.
A Remarkable Home Treatment
Given by One Who Had It.
In the year of 1893 I was attacked by
Muscular and Sub-Acute Rheumatism.
I suffered as only those who are thus
afflicted know for over three years. I
tried remedy after remedy, but such
relief as I obtained was only tempo
rary. Finally I found a treatment that
cured me completely and such a piti
ful condition has never returned. I
have given it to a number who were
terribly afflicted, even bedridden, some
of them seventy to eighty years old,
and the results were the same as in
my own case.
I want every sufferer from any form
of muscular and sub-acute (swelling
at the joints) rheumatism, to try the
preat value of -my improved "Home
Treatment" for its remarkable heal
ing1 power. Don't send a cent; sim
ply mail your name and address, and
I will send it free to try. After you
have used it, and it has proven itself
to be that long-looked for means of
getting rid of such forms of rheuma
tism, you may send the price of it.
One Dollar, but understand I do not
want your money unless you are per
fectly satisfied to send it. Isn't that
fair? "Why suffer any longer, when
relief is thus offered you free. Don't
delav. Write today.

Connecticut Dry Agent
Says He Refused Bribes
Hartford "Sure I have been offer
ed money," said Thomas C. McAuliffe
i yesterday when asked whether he had
; been offered money in connection
i with his work as federal prohibition
; enforcement officer for Connecticut,
j "Not only have I been offered money,
j but every agent under my direction
I has been so approached," declared
' McAuliffe, "but in every instance, the
: offers have been refused and the ac
j cused presented for prosecution."
Mr. McAuliffe said yesterday that
' so far as Connecticut was concerned,
1 no direct effort had been made to
bribe the agents to permit the trans
I portation of liquors, the bribes having
I been offered after the arrests had
been made, the purpose being to se
, cure the release of the prisoners so
they would not be presented in court.
lie declared tha't the fact that every
person arrested in the state for viola
tion of the prohibition law had been
presented for prosecution was suffi
cient to indicate that the bribes had
not been accepted.
When told that the federal authori
ties in Boston had demanded that
William J. McCarthy, McAuliffe's su
perior, give all information in his
possession relative to the offering of
money for lax enforcement of the
prohibition law, McAuliffe said this
had already been freely given in
Mr. McAuliffe. when asked con
cerning one specific instance where a
bribe had been offered to him men
tioned a case in Bridgeport, but de
clined to name the man who had of
fered the. bribe, he said the informa
tion had been turned over to the
office of the United States attorney-general.

Paul Dietz, Owner of Casino
In State Street, Assumes
Active Management
Paul Dietz has assumed the active
management of the Casino in State
street, due to the resignation of
Samuel Howard whose resignation
took place several days ago.
Mr. Dietz purchased the Casino
some time ago and has now decided
to handle the managerial end of the
Casino in the future.
The Casino, which is one of the
largest auditoriums of its kind in
Connecticut, comfortably accommo
dates more than 450 0 persons and
will be the scene of many big ath
letic, boxing- and wrestling tourna
ments as many forthcoming local af
fairs are to be held by prominent
local societies.
The entire floor has been com
pletely renovated and is now the
finest dancing floor in the state.
Mr. Dietz is well known in this
city and recently leased, for a long
term of years, the Bostwick theatre
corner of Bostwick and Wordin ave
nues in the West End.
Communications may be left at the
Abercrombie News siore.
Tonight at the Stratford theatre
the D. W. Griffith feature, "The Love

Representative Fairchild of Strat
ford, will introduce today at Hart
ford a bill covering the proposed
bond issue for schools at Stratford.
This matter that has been under con
sideration and discussion for some
little time 18 more urgent than ever
at the present writing due to the re
cent High school Are which has made
a bad school condition critical.
Prompt action will give the local
school authorities a chance to have
things school-wise in nearly a nor
mal condition by the time the fall
term opens.

plays basketball with the team from

high cost of living come in for their
share of attention with many more
subjects on the calendar. Right
now the allied conference is a head
liner and as' far as the stove league is
concerned it is all settled right now.
It might be just as well for the com

if some of the much argued questions
were settled right here sure enough.
Here the pulse of the every day folk
is truly shown, and at least quick ac

Adjustments on the matter of fire
insurance have been completed since
the High school fire and it is probable
that an amount slightly in excess of
$20,000 will soon be in the hands of
thes chool or town authorities. It is
expected that now it will be possible
to arrange for, and push work on re
modelling the remains of the old
High school building, which will
eventually become one of the gram

"He is bright," they often say about
a person. You feel envious, but there
is no reason to do so. Medical science
today tells one that brightness or
mental activity is nothing more than
bodily activity. Every one has the
brain, but many brains are dulled be
cause the person is "lazy." Physi
cians tell you that laziness is not a
condition, but rather an ailment. Seek
the cause and the laziness disappears
and the mental activity appears.
The best way of discharging the
lazy feeling is to clear the pores of
the body. First take a Turkish bath,
then have a good rub under the hands
of an expert. You will feel the differ
ence immediately. Do this at the At
las Turkish bath and then consult
Alex Maisel in eharge. He is an ex
pert and will tell you how to restore
your bodily and mental vigor. He
does not charge for advice.

Instantly Opens Every Air

If your nostrils are clogged and
your head is stuffed because of nasty
catarrh or a cold, apply a little pure,
antiseptic cream into your nostrils. It
penetrates through every air passage,
soothing and healing swollen, in
flamed membranes and you get in

Try this. Get a small bottle of Ely's
Cream Balm at any drug store. Your
clogged nostrils open right up: your
head is clear; no more hawking or
snuffling. Count fifty. All the stuffi
ness, dryness, struggling for breath is
gone. You feel fine. Adv.
