WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1900.
naugattjck news Opera II ouse' Thronged' to Doors at ? DemocratiV' Rally. ' ' ' The largest democratic rally of this campaign was held in tuo opera house last night. The rally opened at 8:15, after a short parade from the Commer cial house to the hall. In the hall the drum corps played a catchy melody and received much applause. Judge Ben ton was chairman and in a few re liiarks Introduced Oliver Gildersleeve of Portland, candidate for congress from this district. Mr Gildersleeve arose and addressed tlie chairman and audience: '"The day' before the con gressional convention was held in Mi'd dletown, I was asked if I would ac cept the poniinatioc. This was the first time it was mentioned to me. It .came as a surprise and I was called the new man in politics.' " lie said lie never ran for an office, nor was he ever looking for , one. Mr Gilder sleeve asked for the support of every democrat and said if he was elected he would look to the Interests of every one in this district. Mr Gildersleeve spoke of the large standing army the United States now has and said it was a great strain on the poor people, he sides a menace to institutions. He closed his speech by thanking ail for their kind aflention and took his seat amid much applause. Chairman Tien ton then introduced Tr William A. Crofut. who started his speech thus'.y: "Mr Chairman. Ladies and Gentlemen and Fellow Citizens: Ever since I have been a man I have been a repub lican. I lost my vote because I was on the stump in Maryland in 'Oil for McKinlev. Mr Crofut spoke in regard to the Sulu Islands and how General Bates told the sultan that he must fly the American tlag to be pro tected. MeKinley told the sultan all i. that he had to do was just as pleased and receive for it S250 a month. He then eaugnt the audience by saying that there was a Smith can vassing this state for McKinlev and that he is the post master-general. Mr Crofut said Smith spoke in New Ha- yen a few nights ago and called Me- Kinley the "Moses of this administra tion." Why Moses? Because coming to the mountain of destiny he broke the ten commandments all at once, and arriving at the bottom he saw the golden calf of Wall street.. "Oh. Mr Smith made it lively in New Haven. fOrpnt riniil.insf 1 fr ffntitli fnHiwr said that the republican party could take care of the Trusts. I understand that a man has been here saying the same thing, but I live opposite the senate chamber in Washington ai have things handy." Mr Crofut st.lt. nn."itofi'.,i ..,T;f i be nullified by the adoption of the sil ver standard, and one year ago there were two hundred millions of silver dollars in the treasury. Up to Septem ber 1 it was all paid out but twelve millions. Mr Crofut said: "Why. there would not be enough silver to last Mr Bryan the first forenoon." Ti,i i.o.i,t t-.-ti, ,r.i, o,.i.,, ti, i speaker then came back to Smith. who he said spoke about the full din- ! lier pail. Crofut said: "But did hej'rcn last in cuius i--if ... say anything about the empty coal hod? (Terrific applause.) Didn't Rob ert Emmet have a full dinner pail? Mr Bryan don't take much interest in the full dinner pail, but wants every man to eat with his own family." (Ap plause.) Mr Crofut was very sarcastic in his remarks and said that if Smith staved 1 home in Washington there would have been fewer mail robberies and less mail destroyed in the west. "Smith and Sperry are two of a kind." Fol lowing Mr Crofut. the Hon John A. Tomlinson of Alabama addressed the meeting. , The Yale Law School football team lined up against the Naugatuck team at 3:40 yesterday afternoon on Hotch kiss field. Naugatuck chose the west goal and Yale kicked off. Aslimore get ting the ball and advanced it but a few yards when he was downed by Yale. Naugatuck was held until they had to punt. In the first half there was much punting by both teams. Yale was a great deal heavier than Naugatuck and during this half push ed the home boys to within four yards of their goal, but held Yale for downs, therefore they lost the ball. In the first half there was 'no scoring with the ball on Naugatuck's 25-yard line when time was called. The second half commenced by Naugatuck kicking off. Yale received the ball and by line bucking they sent Weymoth around left end for a touchdown. Wench kicked a goal. There was then ten minutes to play but Naugatuck could not score as Yale was too heavy for them, still they held them as best they could. Eugene Sullivan, a Nau gatuck boy, played right end for Yale and put up a fine game. He was the only man that brought JackoueUi (Naugatuck's halfback) down by tack: ling. Ostrander put up a very stiff argument for Naugatuck and received cheers from the large crowd for his good work at left guard. It was stated last night that these two teams will meet again in the near future and If so It should prove to be a rattling good game. The line up was as fol lows: Nr.uratuck. Yale.

WATERTOWH JOTTINGS A New Industry Started Ilerfr-Crazy Man in Town Yesterday. A new iudustry has been started by Alonzo Seymour, of Greenville, and thus far it promises to be a successful venture. This industry is the selling of pop-corn, which is done up in neat packages, for K. cents, and is all ready tor popping. Mr Seymour is very en- thusinstic over the success he has had thus far. He expects to sell during the winter his whole stock of seven bushels, which lie raised himself.

Sarah I'armalee, a resident of Litch field and a former residence here (about twenty years ago), was visiting at the residence of Henry Frost yester day. A man well under the influence of liquor drove back and forth through our town yesterday at a very lively clip. The horse which the man was driving was a spirited animal, and many thought the man would be thrown out. Lucky for the man that one of the constables did not see him. A regular meeting of the Naugatuck Valley Poultry association will be held in Waterbury next Monday evening at Baumgartuer's news store.

' ' f " 1 r -i U ' -. - - ?-"? v -,-r. I ircd people more or less ''run down' j may like to have particulars of the ail ; or nature cure so popular in German : just new. - ' , . The system, says the London Mail, ! is said to represent a reaction against the overuse of drugs and serum. It appeals for the natural life as the tru remedy for ill health. In the lovely woods of Dresden and in various othei captivating spots in Germany patient undergoing the "cure" are counted by hundreds. They come from Russia. America, Africa, Australia, India, even from far-off Siberia and the Ural moun tains, while England contributes foul hopeful invalids to the crowd. The open-air bath is one method of treat ment: In various palisaded inclosures men, women and children, arrayed in the scantiest permissible grb, bathe themselves in the air, indulging mean while in sport, play and exercise foi varying periods. An interesting illustration of the "curt" may be found in Nansen's "On Snowshoes Through Greenland." He tells of Eskimos on the east coast who took their air baths habitually by throwing- oft their clothing in theii half-warmed huts at evening, and sc kept strong and well. Under Danish influence and European teaching as tc the proprieties, they gave up their ail bath and were ravaged by consump tion. Near the air bath inclosure are othei spaces for what is termed the "lying down and air cure." In these spaces are wooden huts raised on supports and open all one side, except for a cur tain. In these huts the night is spent the invalid passing in the morning tc a couch out of doors, where almost all the day he or she lies wrapped in rugs, but able to read or work and cat. ' Next to air comes, light, and this with heat is utilized in "sun baths' arranged on the roof of the "cure" es tablishment, fully exposed to the sky but with a shade oyer each head. The patients lie either "free" that is, un clothed or closely wrapped cn mat tresses for about an hour, and the bath is completed with warm and cold water. , When the sun is not available or is unsuitable equivalent good is obtained it is said, by the use of electric light and heat. Cabinets are fitted with IOC or more glow lights and with panes ol colored glass blue, for instance through which the arc lights can plaj without yellow, red or violet rays. The light streams through the outer skin destroys bacilli, increases pigment and corpuscles and is supposed to relievi pain or lessen internal congestions. Water is available in all the well known forms of the cure. The "wech sel-dcuche" is fearful and wonderful for as you lie in a long bath a forc pump on either side pounds down t merciless stream of hot and cold al ternately for 20 and 30 seconds each The hot steam kettle douche is anothei form of benevolent torture. It goes vithout saving that the hour are early, and by seven a. m. the fruga'. breakfast, is on hand. You may ban special cocoa, or "health coffee," ol even tea (of hips and haws!) with soui milk and rusks and butter. By tel. you may obtain some fruit or, rarely an egg and sour milk sometimes i light red wine and "butter brod" an concessions to weakness. At on o'clock comes the chief meal, consist ing of a vegetable soup or entree, mea or fish, with two vegetables, preferabl3 not roots; salad (made with lemoi juice instead of vinegar), cooked fruit. and creams, but and here is the crux no salt, no water and no bread 1 HEAVY SOLES TO PREVAIL. Women's Shoes for tVo Winter Sen sou Show Bat Little Chance In Style. . . The boots the woman is to wear this winter and perhaps before: the winter in the fall, when she needs heavy boots quite as much, are made on the most sensible lasts, that she has used for a long time. There is a certain breadth and slope down to the toe which will give her toes plenty of room to breathe and will be comfortable. 1 he heels are on the style cf the military, but lower, sloping in a little more and giving a prettier shape than the square heel. It is much more attractive than the higher Cuban, which has had its day. The soles are heavier if anything than any that have been worn yet,, and the extension wider, which is a style be coming to the foot. The extension ia so wide on these shoes that a novice thinks at first that they must be fenc ing shoes, says the New York Times. There is that much for comfort in the design, but more has been done in the materials in the shoe. As the last has become less masculine in actual s,hape, though not In effcct,'s3 the 'material has been adapted to women's use . The calf shoes, like the tan. have to be care fully dressed and require a bootblack, and not only that, but the blacking rubs oif and is fatal to the gowns. The new boots are of a softer leather, which is specially dressed for the use to which it is put. It has what leather men call oil tannage in preference to dry, to make them impervious to moist ure, and if the woman docs not haye a comfortable as well as sensible shoe it will not be the fault of the boot , makers. - y The lace shoe is if anything increas ing in popularity in - these, mannish shoes. There is no call for the narrow toe in any of the shoes, though there has been but lrttle change in the gen eral run of boots. ' ' For the early fall the stout Oxford or low-cut shoe will be worn with the heavy sole and broad extension'. There are still tan shoes in the shops and tan shoes undoubtedly comfortable. They require less treatment in dyeing and are consequently softer, but it" cannot be said that they are fashionable, con sequently for the woman who, wishes to wear them still they can be had at .'reasonable prices. ; j i ' , - " J - .

Greatest Tyrant in the World Qnlcli fcn Thought and Aetlon Extrav-: ' , acant Beyond Measure. ':- - Many of the stories circulated about the empress dowager to the effect that sh'e was "a slave- girl or came of a poor family are untrue My wife has.beqri called asa physician to her Niang'chia that is her mother's home. She was the daughter of an official, was taken into the palace and became the concu bine of the empefor. Hsien Feng.' The empress, his wife, has no children. The son of this 'woman, on the death oi the emperor,' became Emperor Tung Chih, during whose' minority the reins of government were held by his moth er. When he died without issue, she selected Kwang Hsu to become his suc cessor, holding the reins of government from his infancy to his majority. Him she has now dethroned, and she has se lected the son of Prince Tuan as suc cessor, not to Kwang Hsu, but to hei own son. During the whole reign ol Kwang Hsu he was compelled to kotow to her at least once every five days. II she was at the summer palace, 13 miles away, he must go there every fiire daya during the hot summer and knock his head to her. During his whole reign Che has compelled every official ap pointed to vicaroyalties to thank hex at the same time with the emperor. She is the greatest tyrant in the world and the strongest female character on any throne, says Prof. I. T. Headland, in Ainslce's. She has never been seen by a foreign man. but she has been seen by the wives of all the ministers in Peking. When she has an interview with a Chinese of ficial, according to Chinese custom, she sits behind a screen. Among the presents she gave the wives of the min isters were a lot of ivory combs fine combs as well as ccarse -a present which, it is to be hoped, these good ladies will not have use for outside ol China. During the interview with these ladies she introduced them to the emperor. She passed the tea to them herself, taking a sip from each ol the cups before she gave it, evidently to show them that it was not poisoned. They came away infatuated with the "Old Lady," as the Chinese sometimes call her. The empress dowager's chief characteristic is quickness of thought and action. When she comes to a crisis she does not wait to think twice. She acts at once, and awes by her very presence. She does not take time to reckon what the consequences will be, but when she has gotten the reins well in her own hands she plans at leisure how to avoid consequences. She has always been hand and glove with Li Hung Chang, and he would do anything to protect her,. It was formerly sup posed that she was for reform, and so she might have been had she not been compelled to put herself behind the conservative party when she deposed Kv.-ang Hsu.. She is extravagant be yond expression. Her sixtieth birth day fell during the Japanese-Chinese war.' To celebrate it she had a stone road built to the summer palace, while the public read to Fungchou was in a dilapidated condition. When 30,000,000 taels were raised for the construction of railways, it ia said, she used a ?arge part of the money in the decoration of the imperial gardens, stopping the rail way at Shanhaikuan instead of at Mohkden, according to the original plans. ON CHINESE RAILWAYS. Peculiar Customs and Coaches LallUe Tbose of Any Other Coun try. A recent letter writer from China says: Our , first-class carriage resem bled an American carriage in its gen eral principles, but its exact counter cart we had never seen. In each com partment two wooden seats, unfur nished with Cushions, faced each other. We learned that when the road was first built cushioned seats had been furnished, but owing to the ; untidy habits of the Chinese they had to be abandoned. Into the compartment all but the larger and heavier luggage was also carried, and our assortment in cluded one lar-e steamer trur.k, a plethoric English "hcld-all," one dress suit case, two bags and various parcels and bundles. Each passenger is al lowed SCO pounds of luggage on the liberal Chinese railways a liberality that will probably be curtailed later. - My neighbors across the way were two dainty ladies, one attired in blue linen, the other in silk a'nd black bro caded tissue. Their purple black hair was elaborately pressed and orna memtcd with jeweled pins and pink arti ficial flowers. One was a "bound-foot" woman; the other one had escaped the cruel disfigurement. The Manchuri ans, to which the imperial family be long, do not bind the feet, and the fashion set by the empress has been followed by many Chinese in Peking and its vicinity. These little lad.ics smiled and spoke in their own unintel ligible language with an effort to be amiable and polite. They even crossed the aisle and made me undcrs'.and that they would like to look out of the win dow which, on my side of the carriage, was next to the station. I gladly made place for them, and, when their curics ty was gratified, they went .back to their own seat. The servant who had accompanied them took his leave and they then-proceeded to bargain with the chestnut vendor.. There was very soon -a dispute over "something, for they became greatly excited, and c-ne of them brandished her English um brella with astonishing vigor. They poured forth a stream of shrill, volu ble. Chinese without the slightest ex pression' of ill temper on their placid countenances, - ' "It is. a good thing that you do not understand Chinese," said M ; "their language is dreadful." - ; ..'

In and out this one portal go the' president and his family;, the. ladies of fashion who call upon the' president's wife: the copyists,' telegraphers and messengers who are employed in the clerical work of the executive mansion, and they (number a score; the olllce-seekers and nil visitors to the -white house- on business; parties of tourists on their way to see the historic East room; and the ambassadors of foreign mon archy going to present their creden tials to the president of the United States. In the palace of a European . mon arch there would be several entrances. The public would have one door, the family another, and the diplomatists a third. The only attempt made at the white house to secure privacy for the president and his wife, says the Youth's Companion, is this: When they enter or depart, two of the guards about the dcor quietly take places at the head of the little flight of steps which lead up to the portico, and hold the public back a few seu onds, . while the president and wife step out to the carriage or go in from it. Usually a little bevy of peo ple collects to see the president p;1Si so near, and to them he always bows i cordially. i Inside the door it is expected that ! no one will accost the president while : walking to and from his private apart- ments. But there is nothing to Ijre" lent one irom uomg so. rsot long ago a "green" reporter, who had just come to Washington, took this occa sion to approach President McKinlev and question him upon the issues of the day. The president, recognizing tlie innocence of the intruder, chatted I pleasantly with him. The next day j the young man was warned by the ! guards that he should not do so again. Even a president must occasionall v" ' have a few minutes to himself. WHEEL WAS HIS SAFEGUARD Petty Naval O&cir'i Bicycle Kept Him from tao Allurements of tbo Saloons. "In these days of automobiles, steam carriages and electric vehicles," said an observant man the other day to a New York Tribune man, "the bicycle is not being neglected. It has become too cheap to be popular with the upper classes, but it is more of a blessing than ever to the poor. Even the newsboys and bootblacks own their own wheels now. It was on -a visit to the cruiser Baltimore the other day that I became convinced that one could find bicycles every where, "I was passing through one of the gangways leading to the quarters of the crew. There were guns and fight ing things on every side. I happened to look up and was surprised to see a bicycle securely fastened to the top of the gangway. It was an old-style wheel, with heavy frame and thick tires, but it had served the petty offi cer who owned it very well. It had been ridden in most of the seaports of Europe at which American war ves sels call. The owner had scorched about the streets of Hong-Kong and had taken a bicycle trip into the in terior of Japan. Even in Manila he had found it useful, in spite of the extreme heat. " 'Theowner of that wheel has saved i more money during the last three years than any other petty officer on the ship,' said the lieutenant who was showing ma around. 'It keeps him busy when he has shore leave and he has no desire to go to saloons and other places in which sailors "drop" 11 of their hard-earned pay.' " THE YOUNG MAN'S MANNERS. Society Asks Taut lie Behave Well, and Then His Path Will lie Smooth. Society asks little of a youn g man ex cept to behave well. If he be manly in looks, if he has a good manner, is civil to his elders, if he has any little gift of entertaining any "parlor tricks" if he sends a few flowers occasionally, looks pleasant and is polite, his way will be smooth to success always pro viding that he is really a gentleman, says Ladies' Home Journal. He never joins her on a thoroughfare unless the friendship be an established one and only with her permission nor will he stand and converse with her. It is provincial to walk "sandwiched" between two women, to stare, or look after anyone who has passed. In public conveyance a man does not pay a woman's fare unless he is her sscort, except in an emergency, when he must ask if he may. Introductions are rarely made in pub lie places or conveyances. A man precedes a woman when enter ing a theater or public place. Iu a church the lady goes first. He may pre cede her up a public staircase, but in a private house in ascending and descend ing he follows. In picture' 'galleries, in elevators in public building-s, hotel and theater cor ridors, they, being thoroughfares, a man retains his hat. In a hotel he re moves it if women arc present. If a lady bows to a man in a res taurant he rises slightly from his scat -in acknowledgment. When he is with a party, if a lady V.ith -her escort stops to speak to his friends he rises and remains standing until she passes on. He also rises if a. man is introduced to him when with a stag party. If a' bachelor show some little hospi tality it advances him much in favor. If he has attractive rooms, or has any thing, to show, he may give an after-, noon tea or a chafing-dish supper. Sim plicity Is in order. A bachelor's enter tainment is. usually regarded in . the light of a frolic and his eflorts indul gently 'considered.; . '.'

'Cbn'dactA V Before James W.r Egnew, chief clerk of the bureau, of statistics, came to Indianapolis, says the Sentinel of that city, he lived in the '-modest town of Lagro, in Wabash couaty." On h'is'na tivc heath Mr. Egnew cut considerable ice. He had a nice horse and buggy j played the orgiin in the church, oc. casionally sang in the choir and had his clothes made by; a Fort Wayne 'tailor. ----- . ; Eecently Mr. Ejnsw made a visit to ILagro. Sunday evening services were iheld in the church, and when Mr. lEgnew entered he was immediately 'surrounded by a bunch of his friends, iwho prevailed upon him to play the .organ, lie tried to make an excuse, but there was no escape, and like a iamb he was led unwillingly to the slaughter. The first hymn, "Shall We Gather at the Kiver?" is one of Mr. Egnew's favorites, and he played the music in a, way- that made the win dows rattle. j "He's in great form," said the bru nette soprano of the choir, j "Indeed he is," replied the blonde .contralto. Following- tha prayer the minister, in slow, solemn tones, announced the belt hymn. "The congregation," said he, "will please unite in singing No. :334. 'Go Seek and Ye Shall Find.' " ! Mr. Egnew played the prelude, and the minister had given the signal for the audience to arise, when something out of the ordinary happened. The music stoiiped for a moment, and when the people raised their heads to see what the matter was they were astonished at the wild, haggard look on the face of the organist.- With one hand he was vainly cnacavoring to lin ger the keys, while with the other he clutched at his throat as though he .would choke. The lady members of the choir looked at him in such a re proachful sort of way that he mace a mighty elTort to continue playing. I "Cio seek and ye " sang the congre gation. ! With a yell Egnew removed h:3 hands from the keys, and once more made a grab at his shirt front. Great beads of perspiration stood out on his forehead, and the wild look about his 'eyes caused the dignified brunette to move a few feet farther away from hiia. . ' "Has our Jimmy acquired bad hab its during his stay in the city?" asked one of the members of the church ot another. ! "I am sure I don't know," replied ihis companion; "his actions are cer tainly peculiar." ' "Go seek and ye " started the con gregation again. Once more Egnew faced the instru ment, this time with a do-or-die look on his face. He soon took up his cue and managed to play the first verse through. Then, as the minister read .the text, Egnew, without a word of explanation, left his seat and ran be hind the organ, followed by several members of the choir. "What in the world is the matter?" exclaimed one of the young women. ! "Matter! Matter!" exclaimed Eg new. "Good Heavens, look at this!" Without further ado he tore open his shirt and drew from his bosom a black, squirming pinching bug fully an inch in length. The bug had se cured a good hold, however, and when Egnew tore it loose from his body he ;was forced to yell. With something that sounded strangely like d n he threw the bug on the floor, while the young- women stood about and tit tered.

It has often been noticed that there are u$ animals' which are more dainty and fastidious in their personal habits than insects'; the; extreme pains whip'n the' common housefly takes in attend ing' to its toilet, being a good example . of this racial characteristic. The dis covery has-now been made that there are certain insects which have such a respect for Airs. Grundjv and are en dowed with such an innate love of neat ness and order, that not even death, or rather decapitation, can prevent them from making one grand final toilet, which is clearly designed to give them a sedate and respectable appearance after death. Dr. llallion, a skilled entomologist, has discovered this remarkable fact, say the New York Herald. "During one of my recent horseback rides." he says, "I frequently caught one of those large flies which annoy; cattle and horses so much, and I promptly got rid of it by crushing its head. One day, instead of throwing the mutilated in sect away, I placed it on the back of my hand and indolently watched it,. For some seconds the insect remained mo tionless, but then, to my unbounded surprise, it moved its front legs for ward to the place where the head should hav been, and, after it bad rubbed them nervously together, ap- larntlv in :1T!

Under the gentle pres sure of thete limbs the "body gradually became extended and the cxtremijy curved, while the wings gradually changed their natural position and left the upper part of the body exposed.. Meanwhile the hind legs continued to brush each other from time to time. Naturally I watched this extraordin ary sight with greut interest, and. in order to see the finale, I took the insect into my stuciy, where 1: iivca an entire daj". spending the ti:r.? at the ungrate ful task of a:akiag its own funeral toilet." THE TATTOOED CRUCIFIX. tSoCT Lieut. Commander Gillmorc Wan Saved from Elccnttoa in lite ' Philippines. For the first time since we had been on the march, says Lieutenant Com mander Gillmore in McClure's, the Filipino lieutenant separated his camp from ours. He also doubled his guard, stationing bis soldiers in the rccks which surrounded us--. Thinking all this somewhat peculiar, I sent one of the men to ask if he placed the guards for our protection. "No," was his laconic answer. Scon afterward he came himself to our camp, and through an interpreter calmly informed me that he had or ders, presumably from Gen. Tino, to execute us in the mountains. I have always believed that the lieu tenant's refusal to obey orders and ex ecute us was due to the effect, pro duced in his mind by an incident which had occurred n. nir-ht. or twn. pnrlier. At one of our stops he had shown me a crucifix, which he wore hung by a ribbon around his neck, and said to me: "The 'Americanos' are not Chris tions. . "Oh, yes," 1 replied. "All the Amer icans are Christians." I "But you never wear any crucifixes." I I opened my jacket and showed him I my breast. A crucifix had been tat j tooed there years ago, when I was a midshipman. The Tagal leaped to his I feet with an exclamation of surprise, j He instantly crossed himself. His eyes nearly started out of ins head. 1 ex plained to him that anyone could buy a crucifix and hang it around his neck, but that I had endured pain to have my crucifix pricked in the fleshv and that, as he could see. it must always be with me. There was a marked change in his manner toward me aftel that. Counterfeiters' Peculiarities. .
