Despite the stringent postorficc regulation ho whs shocked through the malb, too. It was In the shape of a letter containing oim loomr mu mid an unsigned not declaring that the dollar was conscience money, After the first sweet shook of surprise, Host White began to wonder about tho whence, the why and the wherefor. A real dollar, a good IT. P. silver certifi cate labelled "conscience money." Did ome former waiter forget to turn In a check? Did a former clerk borrow It for carfare out of town? Did a waiter for pet to pay for a plate of soup emptied down a. patron's neck? Or was it for a piece of Limoges china broken in a fall of turkny. Joined with the overthrow of preaso? Or could it he but away with Idlo speculation; Mine Host White is most worried as to whether he shall use his windfall to buy the Tontine when offered for sale or to enlarge the Momauguln. The nearly fatal accident to a West Haven boy Saturday reminded an old resident of a somewhat slmllur, hut less serious, accident which happened at the factory of Sargent & Co. a good ninny years ago. While working near ome machinery a boy was caught In the shafting and whirled around through the air. , In horror the men tried to stop the machinery and cx- Jieutpd to see the hoy full to the floor horribly mangled. Ho fell to tho floor 1! right, hut landed on his feet ami absolutely unhnrmed, eVcept for the fact that beyond a sheepish look of jnodo.sty he was finite unrobed tind his Clothing was still whirling around with the shaft. . ' There'are people still who have not liot on fully to the system of having trolley cars siop only on one corner. There are those who know what's what at Chnpol and Church streets, but when It comes to other corners they are. still somewhat mystified oc casionally. One woman stood at a corner eagerly waiting several minutes for i cur only to be gently Informed by the thumb of the motornuin of the cur Unit she was. on the wrong corner. The hint was lost. Thero wus a string of cars nil going In (lie same direction end but fi short liitervtil apart and as each cur passed the mnfornian Indi cated the other crossing mid. the con ductor oii (be rein- platform leaned ilit nlinost far enough to lose his bal ance ami Hhoiited into the woman's ear, tint. In vain. KranoUenlly signal ling each car to slop on the wrong crossing the woman waited there un til the entire string of six had passed by and then she walked away, con sidering no doubt tho wondois of trol ley ears that never stop despite des perate signalling. Several students In a Wall street rooming house put up a little Joke on tho landlady last. week, (jotting bois terous as students will, the landlady oe. cnslonnlly has to go up stairs and quiet things down. After hiding from her In closets had palled on the youlhfut mind, her next raid found the rooms empty and her flock on the roof of an ell, two of them presenting sturdy hacks As they held the window down.

Hut Scientific 'school students, they were well prepared to avert surprises. All tho rooms are equipped with tele graph Instruments and the other one or tho three in tho house ticked r warning as he lay In bed. Thus apprised of the approach of the enemy, the two nolse mnkers were drawn to the roof and the landlady found an empty house. After her retirement the boys dropped out ( t a, second story window and strolled Into the house at Intervals, talking of a pleasant evening at the theater and elsewhere. The landlady now fears ghosts and Is thinking of calling in a medhfm for seances, or moving to oth er quartern, tine of the clerks at the registry de partment of tho postolliee received nn entirely new kind of a Jolt a while ago. With furtive glances to various points of the compass a stranger step, perl to the window, pulled a gold watch from his pocket and pushed It at. the clerk. "You will have to do it up securely before we can accept It," said the clerk. "Do it up? W'hnt do you mean?" "Didn't you want to send that by registered mall?" "Keglstereil main Not by a darned sight! 1 though this was a pawn shop." 'IT" had come in from the Center street side and got. Into the wrong door.

Montreal, f-Jue , V e, fi. The election campaign which ended on October '.'1, In . the return of the l.nuri'er govern ment, Is to be fought out a.gain in the courts, with the province of Quebec as the principal storm center.

MUCH FOR ALDERMEN Kill, Most luipoi'tniit Matters Arc- for First Headings, The December meeting of Hie board of aldermen which will tic held lo night will have us usual a large num ber of Important matters before It, but most of them come up on first readings and unless unanimous con sent Is asked for the mlhey will not. be decided to-night. The two re ports on Director. Foley's request for permission to build a new elevator for City hall without advertising for bids will come up but as there are hoth a favorable and unfavorable report It Is unlikely tlint either will get. unanlmr ous consent so that there is not llk'cly to tin. definite, action on this matter to-night. The reports of the commit tee, on legislation recommending the advocation by the corporation counsel at the next session of the legislature of numerous charter changes also come up for tho first reading, but these are not likely to get; unanimous consent. It Is possible that unanim ous consent will bo asked -but that. Is not very likely, The meeting. Is not likely to develop any great: lights un less the matter of building lines cnn s up and the decision of the corporal Ion counsel handed to the mayor and tho consequent action by the dlreutor of public works forms subject for de bute. Some of the members of lite board do not agree with the corpora tion counsel about tho powerless of the board to order building, lines In front of Individual properties and tills may ho made mutter of light tonight. AS PIGS IN TROUGH (Continued from First Tago.) replied as he did, "If I must get more money at the price of higher cost to the poor, I will give up farming." . ' Duxurlonsnesa and self-indulgence are another evil. We, ai a people, are growing too extravagant. Wo are on the eve of another grpat era of pros perity, and have already forgotten the lesson of the pirn lo! of the past year. New York storekeepers Mate that they cannot get ejrponslVe enough goods M suit their patrons. Too many people are living Just beyondf their Incomes', a'nd then -ha ve" rinthUgi ?or charity. This. Is another and growing form nif selfishness,, and tho, temptation with Increasing prosperity will be atijl stronger. ', Again, we hiust be mofe human, and rid ourselves of that horrible Anglo-Saxon self-sufficiency. AVe. Just tolerate other races and no more. We need a closer touch with other men, regardless of character, condition or race. This race hatred r dangerous, and we must stop shrinking from men of other races or those whose handis show signs of labor, . . , .'Not alone should we come Into clos er touch with others, but we shonljl Inspire them by our cheerfulness, T.v) radiance of religion should show In our .faces, our faith should raise fa lib In others. In our honestv, we are as a race too: uiiMenfpnlous. The Morse trial Is an example of the conventional hnn esty inlo which we ''have fallen, only he played It a little more recklessly and extravagantly and was caught. The crimes of the Sugar Trust are but another evidence of this Iflnd.of con ventional honesty. Finally, we miisj he. more optimis tic, not with a careless, heedless optimism, but that which comes from faith In Cod. Attaining these ends we, shall combine faith and 'works and live the life of true Christians, DIES AS BRYAN TALKS IVoclor of Texas I'lllverslty Fnlla Di'iul i,i Itox til.
