WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, FRIDAY, NOVjKMBER 9, 1900.
; tiumpugs
'Are very numerous at Intervals, par
ticularly around election time. If a
ward heeler is saying a good word for
his favorite candidate, you can bet
your life he'll give the fellow on, the
other ticket a fine old larrupplng, and
before he is' through the popr fellow
hasn't a foot to stand on, providing
you let the heeler have all the say. But
what does such nonsense amount to?
Election day will come and go, and
one political party feels as if they got
a terrible scalding, while the fellows
on the other side are as happy and
contented as mortal man can be. But
where does the "humbug" come in
here? Why, that's easy. The candi
dates simply promise us anything and
everything on top of. the earth before
they are sure of election, but when
thy get there, there Is quite a differ
ence. "We can mind our own business
and let them mind theirs. Sua the
point? Well, personally speaking, we
do mind our own business. We con
tinually hare our ey on the wheel,
and that's one reason we -can sell you
a much nicer quality of Tea, Coffee
and Butter than the other fellow sells
you at tho same price. We recom
mend our 50c Tea, Cream Java Coffee
at 30c per pound and 2Gc Butter as a
fine trio for election time. Try them

So far as we have been able to learn

enough hail and sleet on the roof of
a small building on his premises to
make a few good snowballs and lie
says he never enjoyed anything better
in his life than he did gathering up
the hail; squeezing it together in his
hands and firing the missiles at a
group of sparrows that were out early
and acted as if they were as much sur
prised as he was to find the snowv
ahead of tlvem.

What the entertainment Is that will
be furnished by Mr Underbill, who
will appear in "The Rivals" to-night
at the High school assembly hall can
be judged from the following: "It is
neither a reading nor a lecture nor 'a
mere . elecutionary - program. It is
more. It is the complete story of the
greatest and most popular dramas told
by one person, but one who has the
rare gift of being able to appear like
several. 'With none of the aids that
changes of scenery and costume lend
to dramatic expression Mr Underbill
gives his monologues in dramatized
form, depending on changes of vocal
and facial expression for Individualize
ing the different, personages, and they
tell the story themselves, the charac
teristics of each one being brought
out so" vividly thatrafter th first in
troduction there is no need of naming
them, so easy is it to recognize them
n each re-appearance. . Before the
recital is half finished, the audience
have been made to .feel ' as though
actually -in the presence of many peo
ple and shifting scenery owing to the
gift of Interpretation that goes with a
really" great impersonator.' -

Miss Agnes McCarthy, employed in
the eyelet department at the Water
bury Brass company's plant received
a severe and ugly injury while at work
yesterday. A strip of brass metal
upon which she was working got
caught in the machinery and in her
efforts to loosen it, it tore up her left
arm, lacerating it badly. Miss Mc
Carthy lives on Center street.
The part of North Main street which
was recently paved was almost im
passible to-day with the depth of wa
ter. It was all over from one end to
the other and in some places was two
inches deep. Between O'Brien's bak
ery and Fogg's grocery there was a
ridge of mud half a foot deep which
served as a crossing and was greatly
appreciated by everybody. Something
appears to be wrong with this job
else people would not be forced to
wade through a sheet of water two
inches deep in some places and not
less than one inch in any place. It is
evident that on days like to-day this
part of North Main street will be far
worse to travel on than it was before
it was paved unless seen to by the city
engineer.
