One of the most interesting football games of the season was played at ine nigh school athletic ticid yesterday afternoon between the Wateibury and .Saugatuck High schools and resulted in a victory for Waterbury by a score of 11-0. Tne game was Wiiuessed by a large crowd. A considerable number of Waterbury's sturdy boy and fair girl students accompanied their eleven in this place and tney made the liiil resound with their school yells.' But Naugatuck could not be outdone in this direction and her many rooters added enthusiasm to the game by their school yells. The crowd, though na turally worked up with excitement, nevertheless were very 5-derly, and there was no difficulty in keeping a clear field. The game itself was quicker than most games played here this season and more interesting to tlioicc present; perhaps the latter was due to the close rivalry between both elevens. Xauga tuck was somewhat weaker after the hard game with Merideu last Satur day; furthermore Clark, one of their star players, was unable to play on account of sickness, but Ashmore, who tilled his position, put up a line game. Wateibury had a much strong er and heavier line; the work of their backs was also line. Naugatuck play ed their usual good game, it is one of the best elevens that has represented the local High scUiol in years, as proven by their playing against the best High schools, in the state this year; but yesterday they met a strong er opponents than heretofore, one .which is exerting every nerve to win the aYle cud again this year. Play commenced at 3:40. E. Byrnes for Waterbury kicked off to Nauga tuck's 30-yard line, ball caught by Ash more and carried back 10 yards; Bat tels gained 2 yards around left end, he also made "a slight gain through the line, third down one-half yards to gain. G. Patchett failed to gain it. Wa terbury's ball in the center of the field. By straight line bucking by E. and M. Byrnes for 7 and 10 yards at times and by beautiful end runs by Hart and Walker, the ball was push ed down the field to Xaugatuck's 10 yard line where Waterbury made a stubborn gain for the necessary three downs and gained possession of the ball. In a trick pass from G. Patchett to Batters, the latter made a beautiful run of about 30 yards, but it Was ruled out as a forward pass and the ball was taken back to Xaugatuck's 10-yard line, and given to Waterbury. M. Byrnes then bucked right taakle for a touch '"down. E. Byrnes kicked a goal. Score '-0 in favor of Waterbury. Time 10 minutes. Xo more scoring was done in this half and the half ended witli the ball in Waterbury's possession on Xaugatuck's 20-yard line., lime- 20 minutes. After an intermission of 10 minutes tlfce second ha-if or lo minutes' uura- tioflt was commenced. Sanborn kick ed oil to Waterbury s 10-yaru line, ball caught by E. Byrnes and carried back 15 yards. By brilliant dashes around the end by Walker and Hart and by straight line bucking by E.

During the remainder of the game no scoring was done. The feature of the game duruag the remaining time was a brilliant run by Batters on a trick pass for about 30 yards.

ELEPHANT HUNTING. riiJ.aed in Sisin for Royal Aatie meat anil to.n.cctoelc the Stubles. The elepbeint hunt in Siam dates from time immemorial, and seems to have been dlsijrned for restocking the royal stables, and contributing, at the same time, to royal amusement. The present kraal at Ayuthia, tays Ccrn hill, was built during1 the last cqntury, by Phya Dark. Previous to that, one with mud and stone walls was in use. lit Xoburi. The elephants.selected were mostly younrj aniinals, that will work with others after six months' training. "Ihs calves, however, become docile in about a month. .-The collars in which they are secured -ofxea 7 chafe their necks, and the application of soothing remedies is found a useful 'factor in taming these' intelligent beasts, which, having once become accustomed to the presence of man, allow themsejves to Ise handled; many of them being so at tached to their keepers that they are noisy and impatient during their ab sence. An anecdote is recorded by Dar win ot Dr. Hooker, who was riding an elephant that "became so deeply bogged that he remained stuck fast until the next da', when he was extri cated by men wi'.Zi ropes. Under such circumstances eiephsnts will seize with their trunks any object,, dead or alive, to plica under their knefs to prevent" their sinking-deeper in the mud; and the drivers was. dreadfully afraid, lest" tie animal' shTcuTd 'have'.' seized Dr. Hooker'and crushed him to death.- But tmt; driver hicsaeif,. as Dr.-Hooker was assured, ran noist.

The singing was also very good. Owing, to the inclemency of ! the weather, the attendance was not large and those who had reserved seat tick ets for last night and did not use them may use them to-night. To-night's Meeting.' The meeting of the citizens of the town of Watertown to-night for the purpose of determining whether we think it best to allow the trolley com pany to lay their tracks along our telford road, promises to be an inter esting one. This meeting ought to draw out a large attendance, ns it is of interest to everyone. Those who have teams and drive to Waterbury several times a week will vote against tlie coming of the trolley, while, on the other hand, those without teams, will favor its coining. A good many stor ies have been afloat of late as to where the tracks would bo laid if they came to Watertown, but to-night will decide all. Come, everybody, and have your say. "Molly Ponanue." R. N. Deland, theatrical manager for the societies hero lias just written- a new three-act comedy entitled "Molly Donahue," which will prove very funny.

The voice of justice was strangled by assassin cr executioner, and true patriots were "re moved" by seemingly occult means. The imperial family Tartars by de scent and disposition was back of all this horrifying injustice and made tools of the avaricious nobles appoint ed to rule the several provinces of the empire. The advent of "foreign devils" was, cf course, viewed with alarm by the fiendish and fanatical Tartiir of ficeholders. They were quick to sso that European intervention would sooner or later put an end to their tyranny and force them to safeguard, In a measure at least, the rights of the common people. The fear of the judgment to come caused the reactionaries to organize and support the Boxer movement.

He was allowed to issue edicts, which were never obeyed. The famous dowager empress provided him with European toys, a wife and 12 con cubines; and attended to all affairs of state herself. When it became evi dent that the emperor would have no issue, she assembled the council of state and had its members select the oldest son of Prince Tuan as heir pre sumptive. Prince Tuan one of the most adroit a well as unscrupulous of Chinese leaders placed himself at the head of the Boxer society whose KWANG HSU, EMPEROR OF CHINA. niipTids. t1t eTrtiyiptinTt nf all fnrpitrn- I ers and Christian converts, appealed to the bjgotry and jealousy of the man darins. The dismal failure of the plans of the Boxers and the subsequent in vasion of China by the troops ttf the allied powers have placed Prince Tuan's head in jeopardy and may lead to a complete reorganization of Chinese methods of government. Inasmuch as but very few arc familiar with China's governmental system as it has existed for hundreds of years, anoutldne of its various branches should prove' of interesct to every student of history as well as to all observers of ciirrent events. Under the ancient Chinese consti tution the absolute conttol of the'em pire is entrusted, nominally at least, to the emperor who is the supreme leg islator of the nation, commander in chief of the army and navy, chief civil administcator of the empire, lord chief justice, owner of all of tine land com prised within the limits of the coun try, archpriest and everything else worth mentioning.

The "Keung-ki-Chu" is a body which corresponds to the cabinets of west ern powers, -i It is composed of the leading statesmen and politicians of the empire, and its memoers visit the imperial palace every morning to con fer with the emperor. The cabinet is controlled by an executive body, the "Ne-ko," composed, of ministers noted for their sagacity, iJr wickedness. Other governmental departments are the "Tsungili-yamen," which ia the Chinese foreign office, and the "Li-fan-Yucn," or colonial office, which looks after the rights of foreigners dwell ing in C.hina and governs the provinces and tributary states of Mongolia and Tibet. The "Han-liu," or Sacred College of Learned Men, is an interesting body composed of the empire's best schol ars, and to be elected to a member ship in it is considered a great honor. The college eontroia the -beards of works, ceremony, revenue, military and naval affairs, office punishment, etc. Incidentally it also examines candidates for ofllce in their literary, artistic and scientific attainments. From time immemorial the Chi nese bar n been great sticklers fvr ceremonial etiquett-j. &td it is conse quently no surprise to learn that the board of ceremonies i3 one of the hardest worked departments of the "Han-liu." The board of ceremonies i subdivided icto a committee of etiquette, which regulates all affairs concerning aiar: iages, funerals and publis celebrations; a committee on mutual intercourse, which has charge of the reception of illustrious strangers; a chamber for the manage ment o festivities and imperial func tions, and a committee on music and tho drama. An additional body and one, too, that wields almost autocratic power is the "Tu-char-Yuen," or the board of censors. Its special duty is to scrutinize the works of the mandarins throughout the empire, and its word is almost law. Each province in the empire is, in addition to these national bodies, gov erned by a mandarin with the titK of "Swuin-Fa," or viceroy. This offi cial is a despot in his district, ancj possesses the sole rignt of approach ing the throne on any matter connect ed with his province. The life aaj death of those under him are in Lis hands, and he iscommander-in-ch;ef of the local troops. As a sort of set off to these immense powers his ten ure of office is very insecure, and he is liable o be removed on the most trivial pretext, such as the outbreak of a riot or rebellion in his province. Suspension, moreover, i usually fol lowed by his death at the hands of the executioner. Under the mandarins is a horde of minor officials, such as local superin tendents of taxes, provincial judges of the criminal court and educational ex aminers. Each of the provinegs is split up into several large divisions, which are in their turn divided and subdivided almost to infinity. The common people have no rights whatever. They are permitted to work so that they can pay taxes. In order to keep their places the local officials rob the day laborers and bribe the district authorities. The district au thorities rob the merchants and bribe the provincial officials. The latter extort money from the land owners and hand over a part of the spoils to the mandarins. And that dignitary extorts contributions from everybody in sight and sends a fair percentage to Peking to propitiate the imperial authority there. In many sections of China highway robbery is countenanced by the au thorities. The police are given -a tip not to catch members o.f certain gang3 of highwaymen, and an officer who neglects to take such a hint finds himself without a job. High waymen not so protected are treated with incredible, cruelty surely a pointed lesson, that it is unwise to en gage in robbery without dividiug the spoils, with the so-called "guardians of the peace." Nothing but a political earthquake can correct the abuses so faintly out lined here; ahd certainly no one who has the true interests of the Chinese at heart vculd argue against the in troduction . of reforms. Should tho present occupation of Peking by the troops of Europe and America lead to a reorganization cf affairs in China, the Boxer massacres, terrible as they were,, would provej a blessing- to civ ilization, net too dearly bought with the blood of scores of noble men and women.

In fact, de had' spent a considerable portion of the flours which are supposed to be passed in pleasant dreams trying to remove a sticky fly-paper mixture from the caudal appendage of his par ticular pet a large and handsome black cat. The funny little drama opened about nine o'clock at night. DOV.'NSTAIRS HE V.'ENT. While prowling about the house the cat's evil genius le-d him to jump upm the sideboard. The fly paper was there. Just how it happened the sole witness of the disaster did not know, relates the Baltimore Xtwa. There was a whi.sk of the cat's tail, a loud growl as it touched and clung to the fly papir. Then there was pande monium for 15 minutes. The paper terrified the cat. Hu tried to rid him self of it by robing, and made it stick tighter. The cat hissed, spit and ut tered blood-curdling shrieks, lie tied under the sofa and then upstairs. The youngest of tha family was asleep. She awakened in terror as the cat rushed across her bed, leaving a section of the paper oa her face. Into the next room rushed the cat. He rolled on the bureau, and about 25 pins, two pieces of ribbon, a lot of cigarette papers, a scarf and a neck tic stuck to his tail. Downstairs he went, carrying the collection with him, and took refuge under the re frigerator, when his owner, who had been vainly trying to seize him, man aged to get hands on him. The frightened animal had been terrified into docility. Warm water, olive oil, alcohol and benzine were applied to his once smooth black tail after the nrticies he had gathered up on it had been picked off one by one to an ac companiment of mews and spits. It was past midnight when this was ac complished. In the morning the cat made a hostile demonstration before another piece of fly paper, but left it alone. A VIOLET POTPOURRI. How to Prepare a Dainty Addition to a Lady's Toilet Table. - Almost any fragrant, flower that re tains its fragrance after drying may be used in place of rose leaves as a foundation for this potpourri, say3 the New York Tribune. A potpourri of vio lets, a most dainty and delicious addi tion to the toilet table, is made some Vfhat differently. Put layers of violets and light layers of salt in a large bowl and turn them daily until they are thoroughly dried. Fresh violets can 'be added from time to time, but the 'mass must be thoroughly dried when it is put into the violet jar. Add to an ordinary sized potpourri jar of violets about two tablespoonfuls of powdered Florentine orris root and a few drops of a triple extract of violets. Use a lit tle smaller jar for a violet potpourri than you do for a rose potpourri. Add a few drops of a triple extract of vio let every three or four months. This jar disuses a delicate perfume through out the room when it is opened after the sweeping and dusting is over. It is especially popular for a lady's boudoir or parlor, ass it has a mere delicate fragrance than a rose jar. Evolution. Too map3r glasses are apt to make a tumbler of .a man.

TOOK .TWO JGCEYS TO WIN. i One Was Thrown in Steeplechase and At, other Caacht the Horse and Rode It In. "It ' isn't ' often," said ' aif old-time betting-ring man the other day, re lates the . Chicago Inter Ocean, "that a man cashes a bat on a horse that throws its rider in a race, but there was a big crowd that did it one day at Graresend.and I guess they haven't got over wondering about it yet. ' It was a rare occurrence.' Ccck Eobin was a red-hot favorite in the race I' mention, but the air was just thick around the paddock- with a tip on Count Xavarro, and despite the fact that nearly all the books were laying from 20 to 30 to 1 against the lattei to wia there were many bettors who recalled a fairly good race the Count ran up at Saratoga, and they played him across the board, just for a flyer, but put the bulk of the bet on the horse to finish third. "The race was started without any delay, and, although it looked like a cake walk for Cock Kobin, those who had bet on Count Xavarro to show were gratified to see him stick to his ' field and hold it easily in third place. The race was SVa miles, and those who had tallowed the tip settled back Ir. their seats in antici pation of cashing at least one-third. Some of the l'.-.r.r-.' excitable of these bettors were yelling and shotting like madmen as the horses ntarcd the mile mark, but it was right here that iheix hopes were blasted., for in taking the jump the horse stumbled, threw Green, tins' jockey v. l.o was rid-ii:g him. Boiled over or.ee or twice, scrambled to its feet and went oa without a rider. "As the horse started off at an easy gait a mnn in his !hirt slccvrs who was standing in the iancr field of the steeple chase course was seen to run to the center of the track right in the path of the runaway. He had on a big slo-.ich hat and as he waved his arms up and down as the horse approached everyone thought he was trying to stop the hcrsi. The horse came straight at him. but when it looked just as if the animal was going to run over him it swerved to one side. As it did so the man grabbed hold oi the bridle and with a sort of flying leap landed square in the saddle, ia a manner that would have done cred it to one of Buffalo Bill's riders. "Once on the horse's back, he didn't lose much time, but got right down to business .and began to ride the hardest he knew how to make up for lost ground. He really looked a fun ny sight, costumed as he was with long trousers, shirt sleeves and big slouch hat, and a shout went up as he passed the stand, while many shock with laughter at the ridiculous sight he presented. This didn't, seem to bother him, however, for he kept right on at work, and to the surprise of ev erybody he finished third with Count Navarro. "Those who had bet on the horse appeared to take their supposed loss with good grace and joined in with the rest of the crowd in giving the rider a great send-off as he came back to dismount, but their look of chagrin gave way to one of surprise when the numbers were hung out and they saw that Count Navarro was third. Some said it was a mistake and others asked what it meant, but when the numbers stayed out until the horses were called to the post for the next race those who had bets on the horse for third place made a rush for the bet ting ring, and they took what was coming to them without asking any questions. But even at that some of them acted as if they were robbing the bookmakers, and hurried away as soon as they got hold of their money for fear, I suppose, the fancied mis take would be found out before they got away. "It turned out afterward that the man who rtvle Count Navarro in his long trousers, shirt sleeves and a slouch hat was none other than CahilL, the steeple chase jockey, who some times rides for the owner of Count Nsvarro. Being in the inner field where the steeple chase races are run, seeing the accident, and knowingthat under the steeple chase rules if he could mount the horse and finish within the money it was allowable. Cahill tbok a chance, and, what ia more, pulled it off." "Weary Explains Him Preference?. "It's a great pity dat all calves can't grow up to be cows and not bulls.
