WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1900.
Ig the very first item on the list of ar
ticles which had that imposition called
war tax taken off it, but the 30.? per
pound on tea still remains. Well, that's
pretty work for the politicians: you
can readily see what kind of men have
been sent to "Washington. Just reflect
on this matter. Keeping a duty of 10
cents per pound on tea. 'an article
which is a necessity i providing you
wish to enjoy good health and a long
and happy life) and taking the tax off
a drink l been, which is a costly luxury
aDd in many instances raises ructions
and causes many a son? "head and black
eye. and sometimes is the direct cause
of spending a thirty or sixty days va
cation in jail or town house. Say. the
politicians who made the above blun
der virtually passed a law the other
day whereby the soldiers are deprived
of their beer, yet the same teuows took,
tbe tax off the "stuff." l-'or pity sake
at they insane V Well, we sent the
lawmakers over to Washington and we
must abide by their decision. Remem
ber, it doesn't matter whether the.v
have the tax on Tea or not: we will
look after our patrons' welfare and
see they -ret the good quality every
time. We guarantee our Tea and Cof
fee to be the top notch quality, anil
we sell at the bottom notch price, If
you doubt us just give up a trial, then
judge for yourself whether we tell the
truth or not at

Fishing at Forest park promises to

to that effect is already apparent.
Fishing is now possible only through
tiie ice. P.ig catches have already been

Dennis J. Donnelly, who paid Slid
in the district court a few days ago
for two violations of the liquor laws,
has escaped prosecution on his bond
by a very close call. Prosecuting

the woman stated that she was em

Cheshire and came to town to see a
few friends. She stayed one night at
Charles Roper's house on Dublin
street and would have gone home yes
