' (VVATERBURYV EVENING DEMOCRAT, MO!SDA f; DECEMBER 17, 1900.
: JUST AT
Thls season of the year almost every
one should be bappy. Chirstmas gen
erally brings good cheer and happi
ness to every heart. Let us say- right
here that we are continually looking
for the happiness of our citizens, par
ticularly our patrons. Speaking of
happiness reminds us how people can
unintentionally make themselves un
happy. For instance, If we advertise
a big bargain with one pound for a
certain date, and you forgot the date
you'd be very angry, wouldn't you 7
Again suppose you were invited to be
present at a happy dinner party, but
you forgot the dare wouldn't you feel
mean? Indeed you would. 'Well,
suppose our citv fathers promised you
thev'd have "Hamilton Park" ready
for "a grand opening on a certain date,
end suppose, for some unknown rea
son, it was so (oh. what a supposition)
and you forgot the date, therefore you
did not attend, wouldn't wou be mad?
Tes, slrree. and so would we. You
fee. bv forgetting dates, you often get
left. There are other dates which, by
forgetting, cause you no end of trouble.
Now to help you' avoid missing dates,
pound our nice tasting tea or fresh
roasted good duality coffee, with a
beautiful calendar for 1001. Its an
ornament for any parlor in the city.
There is no big plaster of an advertise
ment on the nictnre. either. Say. a
look at our 1001 calendar will bring a
look of real happiness to your counte
nance, without fail, at

The Evening Democrat is now locat
ed In Its new building, 71-73 Grand
street, first door from Bank street. . ,
CITY NEWS,
The board of finance will hold an ad
journed meeting this evening at 5
o'clock.
At the meeting of Anchor lodge, X.E.
O. P., to-morrow night the election of
officers will take place.
Miss Julia Walsh, of 1,052 South
Main street entertained a party of
friends from Jiew Haven yesterday. .
The board of aldermen will meet
to-night for the purpose of completing
their labors on the annual appropria
tions. Mr and Mrs George Deane of Cherry
street are receiving congratulations
from their friends upon the birth of
a boy to them Saturday evening.
Judge George W. Wheeler, of the
superior court, has overruled the mo
tion to stt aside the verdict in the Par
sons bank case. This was at the re
quest of counsel engaged on both sides
of the suit.
In the district court this morning
Judge Bradstreet allowed that the at
tachment in the suit of McDonald
against Gagain may be dissolved when
the defendant shall have furnished a
bond of $1,500, wTiIch is ?D0O over the
amount sued for.
The ice on some of the ponds is yet
hardly strong enough to bear one up.
Saturday evening a small boy, aged
about 7 years, while skating on Griggs
pond, broke through the ice and came
near being drowned, his rescue being
effected only after considerable trou
ble. There was no city court this morn
ing, not even a Sunday "drunk" being
arrested yesterday. Things look as
though those who are accustomed to
make business for the city are getting
square with the liquor dealers for their
intention not to give away "presents"
this Christmas. However, everybody
seems to be doing business these days
except the city court.
The children of St Thomas's parish
will be given a great treat Christmas
day. The clergymen of the parish,
Fathers Crowley and Kennedy, win
have the basement dressed up in gay
colors and in the center a great Christ
inas tree, which the parishioners are
invited to dress with toys. All tns
children of the parish will be invited
to this unusual treat.
The new organ for St Thomas's
church, for the purchase of which the
recent fair was held, will be com
pleted next Sunday, it is expected, or
at the latest for Christmas day. Spe
cial musical numbers will be rendered
on that occasion besides the regular
service, and the organ will be assisted
by an orchestra. So that St Thomas's
will be quite as attractive on that day
as any of the other Catholic churches.
The Meriden railroad, wnere it joins
the private railroad of the Benedict
& Burnham company, was discovered
on lire last evening by people passing
in that vicinity. A still alarm was
sent to the Leavenworth street en
gine house and the chemical engine,
was dispatched to the scene. One sleep
er was burned when the firemen ar
rived and this comprised all the dam
age done. The source of the tire is
not known.
At a meeting of the Waterbury asso
ciation. No 15, X. A. S. E., held last

lyn. Outing club, , The floral tributes

court 'Martin Hellmann, "Faith, Hope
and Charity" from the Brooklyn Out
ing club, scythe from employes of the
American Ring company and a large
bouquet of carnations from Mrs F. T.
Wals'h; The funeral was largely at
tended. ' A horse hitched to a run-about, the
property of LUley, Swift & Co, ran
away this morning from some point
near the Highland division depot. The
horse tore up Grand street at a terrmc
gait and turned down Leavenworth
street, barely missing several dump
carts belonging to Contractor William
McGrath.!- The. slippery pavement on
West Main street opposite the City
hall came near causing serious, conse
quences, but It was there the fun be
gan.- Contractor McGrath undertook;
to catch the noise; so aid tne assist
ant clerk of the district court, William
Gillette, but neither of them succeed
ed. Further on' Constable Donahue
tried his hand and failed, x Then some
one dashed, out of the City hall and
the horse turned as though It would
dash across the green, it just "barely
missed one of Lunny's hacks. Up
North Main street it flew, a dozen men
now in its trail,' and the lines flying
In the wind. The horse made a cort
screw ' track until opposite the Carrie
Welton fountain, and here Constable
E. R. Perkins Joined In the race, in
a second he bad the flying reins in
his hands and he came near being
dashed to the ground, But he held on
and after a hard tussle of about five
minutes the horse was subdued.- No
damage was done. " ' ' ,
Barcelona council, K.'of C, will bold
an -important ineetlnjf this evening.
The Broadway Social club will give
Its . concert and sociable, to-morrow
evening at Speedwell hall. This will
be. the Broadway's first sociable and
they Intend to give those who attend a

The latest reports from the seat of
war at South Africa, state that after
being whipped by the Boers, the Brit
ish, as many of them as were able to
take to their heels, retired in splendid
order. Bully for the British. Here's
hoping they will not let the grass grow
under their feet until they get off Boer
territory.

alarm called the Brass City hose com
iianv to the tenement bouse at 214
Dublin street, formerly an old -school
building. In a tenement occupied by a
Mrs Allman smoke had been seen is
suing from the chimney where the
stovepipe enters, and the tenants,
thinking there was a fire, sent in a still
alarm, after vainly attempting to ring
box 02. The wires were out of work
ing order and no alarm sounded. Chief
Snagg had men engaged in fixing the
wires yesterday until they were put in
working condition. As to the fire
there was none, and as to the damage
there was little except a little- hole
which was cut In the floor, and conse
quently the firemen had a run for
nothing.
