WATERBXJIiy y EVENING DEMOCRAT, THURSDAY NOVEMBER 22, 1900.
Dick Croker and his bosom friend, Tom Piatt were to visit Waterbury next summer, and were given a ride around our city of brass,' and during their tour Hamilton park was point ed out to them, wouldn't they have a grand old -laugh at our city govern ment? Why, to think that taxpayers would ' put men in office who would treat such a niagnihcent girt as iiain- ilton park In the manner they have, .Mould nut both of the above named eentlemen into convulsions. And if on their way back along Broadway, between Silver and Welton streets, they decided they would like to see Washington hill, and asked the driver to point out the route they must take to get there, it surely would be a ease of "What kind of farmers run the city of Waterbury, any way?"' And who .would blame them? No connecting street between Welton and Silver streets and the Hill. Well, we don't know what either gentlemen would think, but we do know that if they drank some of our Tea they" Would de clare it the best they every drank in all their travels. We think both would buy some to take home, aim if tney u they would get four bars of the best Soap with every pound, and our 24c Butter would just tickle their palates. They might have no use for politicians cut they d always remember PHELAN'SjP STORE 41 Brrtsaj, Tel CaU 168-2 This Young Winter That's been with us the past few days, is a gentle reminder of what's to follow it makes you think of a comfortable house.

Attorneys Guilfoile and Bauby de livered short addresses at the opening of the third annual fair and sociable of the Simonsville club in their hall in Simonsville last night. One of the gems of the evening was the rendition of "Vesper Bells" by little Miss May McAlenuey. There was a big crowd present and all were well pleased with the program. The city is making great improve ments on Locust street. The street near the school has been graded and sidewalks will soon be laid along the south side of the street. This work will be done by Contractor McGrath, who has already got the curbstone ready to be laid. The growth of that part of the city is nothing short of wonderful. August Peltier of Sylvan avenue has purchased a farm in Southford and will occupy the place at once. It is quite convenient to the school and about a mile from the railroad station. Mr Peltier and his family have lived in the south end for several years and have many friends there and in all parts of the town who wish them suc cess in their new venture. They are good people and. whoever will bound them in Southford will find them ex ceedingly agreeable neighbors. Miss Nora Dowling, of Baldwin street, has received a letter from her brother, Morgan, who is with the Unit ed States army gathering in empire in the Orient. He gives a. graphic de scription of the uprising in the Celes tial kingdom and the entrance of the allied troops into the sacred city. The distinction that followed and the loot ing that ensued he pictures in a most attractive manner, and, while his letter on the whole is very instructive, it is not as cheerful as his former ones. He is evidently tired of soldiering, for he concludes with some hope that his regiment will soon be called home. The tenth annual entertainment of the Employes' Aid association of the American King Co was held in City hall last night. The grand march was led by Mr and Mrs F. .T. Ogden. The American band furnished music and Prof Pole promted. The affair was in charge of the following committees: Arrangements. F. W. Chesson, chair man; T. F. Dillane. It. Palmer, P. E. Burritt. C. S.

Miss Elizabeth Cecilia Robinson and John Doyle were married yesterday morning at the Sacred Heart church by the Rev Father Bray, in presence of a large number of relatives and friends of the contracting parties. The ceremony was followed by a nuptial mass. Miss Mary Robinson, sister of the bride, was maid of honor, and Thomas Doyle, brother of the groom, was best man. The bride was gowned in a costume of brown corkscrew cloth, trimmed with chiffon, and a collar of point and Houiton lace, with a brown velvet toque to match. She carried a white prayer book. The maid of honor was attired in a gown of dark blue, trimmed with lace over white satin and a large black picture hat. A wedding breakfast was served at the home of the bride's parents, Mr and Mrs Michael Robinson of Orchard street After a short wedding tour Mr and Mrs Doyle will reside at 892 East Main street, where they will be at home to their friends after Mon day. November 20. The couple were the recipients of many substantial tok ens of esteem. The street department is doing good work in different parts of the city in the matter of repairing old crosswalks, and while they are not being replaced with new ones, they are being repaired in such a way that they are practical ly as good as ever. It is a pity that there is not money enough on hand to continue this work until all the old walks would have been put in shape, so that people would not be getting ankle deep in slush and mud in them after a shower of rain. The superin tendent should give a look at the walks on East Main street, from the Water bury Furniture company's plant to Spring street: on Bank street, in the soum line or tirana street, and on South Main street, in the south line of Scovill street. These and several others are badly in need of repairs, and if they ore not attended to this year, they should be taken hold of the first thing next spring. No doubt the su perintendent is aware of all these bad spots, but finds it Impossible to give all of them the attention they require out of one year's appropriation. " Eugene Hemingway, an inventor of many devices, is experiencing the mis fortunes of his kind. Among the many things he has patented is a device for keeping ladies' hats on straight and a rotary hair-curler.- This last is a sim ple, ingenious affair, and the inventor thinks, there is a lot of money in it, if he could once get it on. the market. A short time ago an agreement - was made between Mr Hemingway, Charles W. Messer and Arthur Wyeant, where by they were to raise $5,000, at $10 a share in a stock company. Wygant was to be given his stock for the shares be sold at the above price. To some extent he was successful in the local field, but not auite as much as one would expect. -. Whether or not he has ; gone to pastures new or gone, for good, the inventor does not know, but he has not seen Wycaot for some time and those who bought stock in the hair curler are beginning to get anxious abont the fortunes they expected to make out of it. " What bothers the in-; ventor more, than anything jeh?e is that Wvirnnt has the model of the hair-' Pttrter wttlr Mnr." Hetbink- Wygant Is In Bridgeport - i-. (fharles IsrateU of ftortl jm street, is home fromcollege on "his vacation. Miss Amelia -Payne-of Plantsville and John D. Ford of this city were married last night at the home of the bride's parents, by the Rev C. F. Pease of that place. The couple will reside in Waterbury. r ... David Cahill of South Main street, an employe of Benedict & Burnham's, met with a painful accident this morn ing. While working at a;muffle his right baud got caught between two bars of metal, crushing one of the fin gers badly. He was attended by Dr Kilniartin. - . Miss Maggie Grout was agreeably surprised last night at her home on Baldwin street.- the occasion being the anniversary of her birthday. Mis Grout was made the recipient of many tokens of regard from relatives and friends, among them being a beautiful silver bracelet from her brother. An interesting musical and literary pro gram was rendered. Refreshments were served. . The inembers of the democratic town committee are looking around . fo a chairman; and if half what is being said on the subject be true, they'will not be able' to agree upon a man among tlieir'own number, and already some of them are .talking of .going outside the members of the committee for a chairman. This might not be a bad idea, but it is said that the propo sition is being Opposed by several of the members, who take the ground that they ought to be able to agree upon ' .1 ' chairman from among their own number. It is not likely that the rank and file of the democratic party care a picayune who the chairinau is, provided he proves to be a man in whom the party has implicit confi dence and who will command the re spect of all good citizens, republi cans as well a democrats. Peter B. Reeves made a competent chairman of the town committee and when the pres ent democratic town committee get down to business they should give us as good a man as Mr Reeves, and bet ter if they can find him.
