rWATERBURY ; EVE1NTING DEMOCRAT, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1900.
Is the very first, item on tbe list of ar
ticles which had that imposition called
r:ir tax taken off it, but the l'Oe per
pound on tea still remains. "Well, that's
pretty . work for the politician; yon
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 (providing you
wish to enjov good health and a long
and happy life) and taking the tax oft
a drink (beer), which is a costly luxury
and in many instances raises ructions
and causes manv a sore "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 fellows took
the tax off. the "stuff.". For pity sake
are they insane? Well, we sent the
lawmakers over to Washington and we
must abide by their decision. Remem
ber, it doesn't matter whether they
leave the tax on Tea or not: we will
look after our patrons' welfare aud
Bee they get the good quality eycry
time. We guarantee our Tea and Cof
fee to be the top notch quality, and
we sell at the bottom notch price. If
vou doubt us just give up a trial, then

truth or not at

captured a lot of game. The held of

Everybody except one. was so busy
last evening buying Christmas gifts
that one did not have time to break
the law so that there was no city
court this morning. The exceptional
case became too exhuberant and
danced on his own hat on South Main
street. Ho was such a good fellow and

The cold weather for the past week
or so has covered the different ponds
iu all parts of the city wltii a sheet of
ice capable of withstanding the weight
of a few hundred or more skaters.
John D's and the East Brass Mill
ponds have already been tested by
lovers of skating and been found in a
safe and excellent condition, the ice
being exceptionally smooth. The
Manhan rink is also in excellent con
ditio::. McClure's Magazine for January will
contain the first installment in the
Memoirs of Clara Morris, entitled
"Recollections of the Stage and Its
People." This chapter describes the
famous actress' first appearance before
a New York audience and tells vividly
of all the trials and triumphs on that
crucial occasion. Apart from its senti
mental value as the autobiographical
work of our greatest actress, the dra
matic intensity of the writing gives to
the article a literary charm worthy of
its high historic Interest.
The grabbing prowlers who have
been working in Waterbury for some
time past, took it into their heads to
give the houses a rest and turn their
attention towards the dance hall,
thinking, no doubt, they would fare
better in the search for wearing ma
terial. So on, one night this week
they called at a hall in the center and
succeeded in carrying away several
pairs of ladies' gloves, as well as a
number of hat pins. They may have
carried away more valuable goods, but
we have not hard of it. The gang
seem to like this city for they are
making -quite a stay.
At a meeting of the town school
board last night it was voted that the
committeemen of the Town Plot and
Mill Piain districts be authorized to ap-.
point one additional teacher in their
districts. The -appointment of a
teacher in the Park Road district was
confirmed. It was decided to let the
matter of change of text books stand
until next year and devote the money
that would bai. to be spent la this
way to. furnishing additional teachers.
The Oronoke school district recom
mended the appointment of Frank G.
Schinitz as tax collector, to succeed J.
Ji Lyons, resigned, but it was decided
to defer action on the matter until it
has been determined what shall be
done in reference to taxes. At the
last annual meeting the district voted
to lay a five mill tax, but the district
has been divided since which will ne
cessitate some understanding regard
ing tne collection ana disposal of taxes.
Charles Barnes, the livery keeper.
told a story last evening of an encount
er with .a black snake. Mr Barnes
was fishing on Chestnut Hill reservoir
when a hugh black monster poked its
head up -In front of his boat in a

his- fellow fishermen saw at once that
the . monster was only an unusually
large.- black snake., but nevertheless
they determined to dispatch it and
rowed toward it tvith that intention
Tlie snake, seeing them approach, dis
appeared and was hot-seen again until
the., fishermen were tying up their ap
paratus This' time it undertook to
cross the road that divides the reser

With stones and fishing rods the snake
was assailed, better weapons lacking.
The. -odds of a. longer lifetime were in
favor of the snake until one of the
fishermen threw his bait net around

A new feature iu the way'of surprise
parties took place at the home.of Miss
Kitty Bergin of Bergin street last even
ing. Miss Bergin was industriously
engaged on that most perplexing ques
tion, what would she give her friends
as Christmas gifts, when a number of
them entered dressed in all manner of
costumes, and the rest of the evening
was devoted to dancing and . amuse
ment The selectmen would like to find
the relatives of one William Chesnar,
who is now in Middletown asylum.
Chesnar is sinking rapidly,' so the
selectmen have been notified, and will
not live many more days. It will be
remembered that Chesnar was the
man who three or four years ago was
found late one night on- the top of the
horse at the Carry Welton fountain.
He was arrested and on examination
was found to be insane.
Mrs Candace C. Biackman of West
Side hill has entered suit against - the
town of Plymouth and its selectmen.
Messrs Burke and Goodman, for $5W
damages. Mrs Biackman owns a road
roller and last summer she rented'-it
to C. L. Tryon & Son of Meridcn, -who
wore build ng a state road in Plymouth.
The selectmen guaranteed payment for
the use of the road roller, and the con
tractor having become a bankrupt is
therefore unable to pay. Hence the
suit against the town and its select
men. William J. Schlegel has sold - his
farm of 100 acres i'n the town of Wa
tertown, shout live miles from Water
bury. to Phoebe Ouirnet. Mr Schlegel
has sold for F. J. Kingsbury his store
