MR GLOVER DEALS IN HORSES. Last Saturday morning a woman drove up in front of the Central House and call ed out Clerk Cavanaugh, to whom she tried to sell a horse and complete driving outfit for the magnificent sum of 10. The Judge suspected t here was something wrong and sent for Deputy Sheriti liiov er, who took the horse and gave the wo man $10. The woman, who proved to be Ciara Cormany of Hridgeport, immedi ately took the 11.30 train, to Botsford it afterward developed, as she was found there Tuesday, at Thomas Murphy's, by Deputy Sheritl's Fenelon of Hridgeport and Clover and Olliuer Hackett. The team, It seems, belonged to Liveryman ltronson of Bridgeport, who rented It to her to drive to Fuirlleld. She now claims that she became lost and found herself at Newtown before she was aware of It. In the city court, Bridgeport, Wednesday morning, the accused was charged with horse stealing. As she had, after her ar rival at Botsford. written to the owner of the horse and told him where he could find his property, the charge could hard ly be sustained. After Judge Kane had reserved his decision until Thursday, Deputy Sheriff Glover attached some money the prisoner had in a Bridgeport bank to secure th money he had given her for the team. When the case came Into court at Bridgeport, there was a lively altercation between M r Glover and the chief of police, who censured the Newtown ofllclal for his course. A LIST OF CASUALTIES. W. C.

Instruction in Vocal Music (Charts), Drawing and Painting and Physical Cul ture (including Delsarte) will be continued, this year. The study of English, its grammar and its literature, has been given a promi nent position in the school. Khetorical exercises will, this year, be held each week, consisting of orations, declamations, essays and recitations. The progressive new education ideas permeate the work in all the departments In order to secure the best results it is only necessary that the attendance shall be regular. Want of success in the studies is usually traced to absence from recita tion. The parents are asked to aid the teachers, so that there may be no absences, tardinesses or dismissals except in cases of necessity. There is need of study out of school by all the pupils in any full course. If there is no study at home the parent may be sure that there is a want of faithful ness. The Preparatory DEPARTMENT--The pupils in this department enjoy mani fold advantages by being connected with the academic work. They ail receive instruction from the special teacheri and marked success has crowned the efforts put forth in behalf of the very youngest classes in physical training, singing and drawing, as well as in the regular work.'

The ot fleers of the United States secret service have been at work on the matter for months, it seems that last June a "pro moter" received an answer to his adver tisement, which looked suspicious. Con sulting the Secret Service bureau, he agreed to answer it. He then met a man w bo gave ms name as Jung, Dut wno is now known to be Samuel Alexander Massey.
