WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 17, 1000.
3 NAtTGATUCK JJEWS " - Presented Last Night Before a Large and Well Tleased Audience. -" Pretty 1-ttle Columbus liall was well filled last night by an audience of Kaugatuek people who were more than pleased at the splendid produc- . tion of the above interesting drama. 'For Honor's Sake" is a romantic . Irish drama in three acts, but owing to the stage arrangements it was found - necessary to present the play in nine scenes. This necessitated the drop- . ping of the curtain after each scene but the delays were so short that the audience was not at all dissatisfied. . The production developed one tiling last night that there is cousideable amateur talent in Xaugatuck that "needs only a. little attention to make the young ladies and gentlemen fully as capable as any amateurs in the state. Heretofore it lias been the good fortune of the "Waterbury amateurs to . rank rirstr among the dramatic socie ties of the state, but last night's enter tainment brought out a new and very successful histrionic assembly that bids fair to rival the older societies of this vicinity. The performance was one of the best ever given in -S'augatuck by amateurs and many things combined to make the whole a success. In tne first place the scenic effects, once they were arranged added to the beauty of the play. The hard work ing corps of stage hands, under the ellicient house stage director hustled from the first scene to the last to make the performance run as smoothly as possible and to their efforts is due the fact that the delays were so short between the scenes. The orchestra, under careful leadership, participated to a great extent to the pleasing man ner in which tlie play was produced. The efficituit committee did everything possible to assist The director and the combined work of both was of ma terial aid. The spectators were gen erous in their applause and spontan eous in their laughter during the vari ous phases of the play and helped to encourage the efforts of the young la dies and gentlemen on the stage. The costumes, lights and all the other ac cessories that go to make up a stage play were in equal accord with the rest of the requirements and the suc cess was general from first to last. Of the acting of the members of the cast nothing but words of praise can be said for each. Never has a cast worked so faithfully and attentively and the reception given them last night rewarded them in a great measure for all their hard work. One vied with the other in excellence. Those who por trayed the comedy parts were greeted with continued good feeling and a welcome that must have made them feel that they had not worked those hard weeks in vain. Those who had the seri ous parts were as well received and must feel to-day elated attheresult.The minor parts had not been neglected and they fitted into the grooves of the performance with a smoothness that made the running easy and entertain ing. Everybody did well and where all are satisfied there can be no fault found. Financially it was also a success and the Y. M. C. I. treasury will no doubt oe amply replenished from the receipts or tne penormanee. ThTe committee in charge was com posed of George P. Hayes, chairman; Peter Wood, Patrick J. Sullivan, James Maher and John E. McCarthy. The members of the Young Men's Catholic Institute may rest assured if they ever produce another drama there .will not be standing room in the hall The singing of the old Irish ballad, come Back to Erin." during the first act by the members of the cast, was very good and took the audience by surprise. James Maher. as Michael O'Xei' the hero or tne play, put as mucn lire In the part as was possible, and won the applause of the audience by his ciever work. Miss Mary Ellen Shea, as Milly Cas- siuy, ana Miss Mamie Kelly, as the :viaow Cassidy. acquitted themselves In a manner that would put many pro- iessionais to shame. As for the young ladies who took part in the play. Miss Nellie O'Brien as Honor O'Neill, acquitted herself in a manner for which she is noted in all plays that she has taken part and .won the hearts of the audience. mcent Reynolds, as Magistrate Blake, took the knocks of Miss Minnie Sullivan as Katty, in a good natured fway, and otherwise acquitted himself In a manner that pleased the audience and did credit to himself. Edward Barry and Joseph Asker man. as two old Irish cronies, who ran a secret still in partnership with Larry Farrell, showed to good advantage and filled their parts to perfection, .which is saying a good deal. Joseph Neal, as Father Rea, and El mer Deegan. as Sergeant Wheeler, of the English infantry, could not have been improved upon. The four mem bers of the Hibernian Rifles as Eng lish soldiers, acquitted themselves in . a manner that did credit to themselves and their instructor. Matthew Maher. as the rich old farm er, father of Michael and Honor, made a typical old man and could not have been improved irpon. He made himself solid with the audience and should he ever appear upon the stage again he may rest assured that he will meet with a rousing reception. As for comedy work, the parts re quired by that sort of work were filled fcy F. P. Kiely and Miss Minnie Sulli van in a way that' would have done ' credit to some of the Test comedians ever seen on the stage in these parts. Both of these characters . brought down the house at different times throughout the play. . ; . ' - Patrick J. Sullivan and George P. Hayes In their respective parts as Reginald Mulvaney and HarryrFarrell, the villain and his tool, played their parts as. good as some of the profes sionals that are seen on tne stage in popular-priced shows, and gained fre quent applause ,-from the audience for their clever work. Peter wood as the lover of Honor O'Neill played his part Ii a way that surprised his friends and caused a great deal of- favorable comment, - The town workmen are engaged In Cleaning the catchbasins around town 1o-day.

Frank Kiely is suffering from a strain which he received at his work, by heavy lifting.

A startling incident, of which Mr John Oliver of Philadelphia was the subject, is narrated by nim as follows: 'I was in a most dreadful condition. My skin was almost yellow, eyes sunk en, tongue coated, pain continually in back and sides, no appetite gradually growing weaker day by day. 1 hree physicians had given me up. Fortu nately a friend advised trying 'Electric Bitters'; and to my j?reat joy and sur prise, the first bottle made a. decided improvement. 1 continued tlieir use for three weeks, and am now a well man. I know they saved my life, and robbed the grave of another victim." No one should fail to try them. Only 50 cts, guarnteed, at G. L. Dexter & Co's Drug Store.

The Taft team has probably played the last game of the season. New Electric Light.

Anyone could have told that she was from the south by the way she fondled her fan; by the drawl of lier tongue, the smallness of her feet. Her escort, says the Chicago Trib tine, was broad-shouiv-ered, fair-haired wore broad-bottomed shoes and laughed as if he were really enjoying himself, lie was plainly northern born and bred, lie was quite smitten with the fair young thing aad did not attempt, to couceM his feelings.

When he marries it is from some emo tion that for the moment causes him "to forget himself; and then, when the knot has been tied, he oeg-ins to re gret that it was ever made. 'There are no duels about women," she went on, "as there were in the old days. Men have either grown coward ly or else they have lost the respect for their female associates. Now, I don't wish to get personal, Mr. Ran dolph, but I verily believe that you would permit a man to insult me or commit some rude act in my presence without offering to force an apology from him. It is bad enough in the south " But here her sentence was broken quick like the closing- of a pocket knife. The fat lady was on the tight rope.

'1 he money was handed over in ad vance, and in a little while Mr. Ran dolph and the fascinating young thing from "Newawlins" were seated at a table in the Fifty-third street cafe. A few moments later the waiter walked in. He was stylishly attired, end car lied himself as if he owned things. He went directly to the table occupied by Randolph and the yoflng woman. "Say, bubl" addressing Randolph, "That's a fine-looking girl there by you, all right, all right! Won't you join me in a drink?" Mr. Randolph arose from his seat quite hurriedly. He sti-uck at the wait er's face. The waiter d'odged. He struck for his neck; the blow landed, and the waiter fell to the floor. Ran dolph then took his seat, and a2ted as calmly as if it were an everyday occur rence with hint that of knocking men down who were discourteous to the gentler sex. The waiter got up and stole away. The Xewawlins girl was immensely pleased, and she told Ran dolph so a half dozen times. Randolph was getting along fine. At 1:30 they left the cafe to take a car. At the corner stood th-j waiter, who tipped his hat. Would the young lady excuse Mr. Randolph. for a second ? Of course. So Mr. Randolph stepped to the dcor with the waiter.! , ' "Look here, young man," said 'he. "When you hit me awhile, ago I saw 40,000 s'tarsl' , I didn't propose 'taking any such strok? as that for two dollars.

According to the Omaha (Neb.) cor respondent of the St. Louis Republic there was a little scene at the box of fice at the Trocadero theater one even ing recently which, if produci d on the '.stage, would have earned a curtain cal. for the artist producing it. A farijiei of the comic weekly type shambled i:r. to the window in the middle of the first act and asked: l "Say. mister, how do you get ontt 'that platform?" , "How's that?" asked the ticket ven dor, making a sounding board of his left hand. "I WANT Ml" D.UJGIITErj." "How do j-ou get onto that i)at form?" "You mean the stage?" "Yes. 1 guess that's what you call it.'' "Well. 1 usually go -around by the stage entrance when I have business there. What do you want on th stage?" "1 want my daughter. She's up there now dressed scandalous and doin' a breakdown." As 1he farmer took no trouble to modify his' voice, and was attracting considerable attention in consequence, he was asked into the private room ad joining the office, where, in the course of a conversation with an attache ot the theater, he disclosed the nature oi the errand which had brought him to Omaha. His name was Adam .Neff and his home was in Kearney. Clay county. Mo., near Kansas City. Three months ago his daughter. Edith, left home. He traced her to Kansas City and found several places where she had worked as a waitress in a hotel, but she eluded him. Then he located her as a recruit in the High Rollers Extravaganza com pany and followed her to Omaha. The old man was induced to wait un til the show was over, when he and his prodigal daughter were brought to gether. There was a reconciliation; a few tears were shed on both sides and then, as Mr. Neff declared his daughter was only 17 years old. Manager Taylor released her and the pair took the first train for home. DOG STOPS DOG FIGHT. How a Diffhificd Hound Saved a Little Terrier from the Fanes of Another Terrier.

His favorite was getting the worst of it, but he did not interfere. Maybe he thought the punishment of defeat was better than any he could bestow. He watched silently till all at once his friend gave a yelp of real pain and trouble. Then suddenly the big dog awoke. With a bound he was beside the other two. With one tap of his paw he sent the victor over into the dust, grabbed his favorite in his mouth as a cat grabs her kitten and made off to his own back yard. -r During the next hour he licked, scolded and fondled the repentant terrier. And now the two are more devoted than ever, though the little dog seems more meek and decidedly more obedient than of yore. Preacher 3efeutlx His Dos.
