JUST AT ETbis season of the year almost every-l tone should be happy. Chirstmas gen erally brings good cheer and happi ness to every heart. Let ns? 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? Again suppose you were invited to be present at a happy dinner party, but you forgot the date wouldn't you feel mean? Indeed you would. Well, suppose our citv fathers promised you they'd have "Hamilton Park'' ready for a grand opening on a certain date, and suppose, for some unknown rea son, itrwas so (oh. what a suppositioni nnd you forgot the date, therefore you did not attend, wouldn't won be mad? Yes. sirree. and so would we. You see. by forgetting dates, you often get left. There are other dates which, by forgetting, cause you no end o!' trouble. Now to iielu von avoid missing dates. pound our nice tasting tea or fresh roasted good quality coffee, with a beautiful calendar for 1901. Its an ornament forany parlor in the c:ty. There is no big plaster of an advertise ment on the picture, either. Say. a look at our 3901 calendar will bring a look of real happiness to your counte nance, without fail, at Phelan's SI BROADWAY.

After the election of of ficers refreshments were served. ome of the Balelwin street people are making a kk-k about a pile of sand there is on that street, east side, in the neighborhood of the engine house. They claim that if they throw a piece of paper in the gtitterthey do it at the risk of getting into trouble, while others are permitteel to leave cart loads of sand iu the street as long as tlic-y please. The superintendent of streets was asked about this matter tc-day ami admitteil that the sauel is there, but addeel that he was doing all iu his power to have it removed. The matter is !u the hands of the prosecuting attorney, ' he said, ' and that is as far as I can carry it." Commissioner Whiting created a sen sation at the meeting of the board of public works last night by asking if any one could tell who dumped all the bird lime on West Farms street. "I didn't believe n. he said, "until 1 walked through it and came out of the mess minus the heels of my shoes and with pain:; in my sides from the effort I was forced to make in order to drag myself out. Others lost rubbers there and people not possessed of as much strength as others were held fast and had to 'holler' for help." The superin tendent of streets explained that it is a new kind of top dressing which will be all right after it gets beaten down and hardened. There was a social time hold last even'ng at the home of W.StalTord.livi Broadway, in honor of Miss Jones of Watertown. Among the contributors to the evening's amusement were Mr Stafford, in o. recitation on an old bachelor's life; John Heaiey, who sung 'The Wearing of the Green': Miss Lizzie Howard, in a song entitled "The Hat My Father Wore": Miss Mary Jones, who sang "Bold Jack Donahue": John Rvan. who rendered "God Save Ireland": Miss Maggie Finnan, in "The Lakes of Killarnev"; anel Miss Mpllie I'innan. who sans "Willie Reil ley." All the suests went home very happy and hoping to enioy a similar time on or before New Year's. The alleged fraudulent adoption of Herbert Brolin, aged 4 years, fur nished a cause for contention in the probate court this forenoon. The cir cumstances are these: A few hours after Herman's birth took place his mother died,, and his aunt, Mrs Joseph ine Andersen, and her husband, Au gust, who live on Johnson avenue, reared tht' child and had him live with them. -A few months ago Herbert's father. Herman, married again, and took the child to reside with them.- l'he Andersens had come to love the boy. and a few weeks after his removal from them " they went to the Brolin liouso. situated near the corner of Bea con and Bronson streets, and took him to tlieir home. Then they got -a tip from some one who knew, a little' law and one day the father signed a paper while at work;" giving Jiis child into the legal "Custody of the Andersens. When Brolin heard what he had done he lamorc-d for the recovery of his child, but he-had given him away and only by process of law could he be re covered. Decision was deferred.

During the two years that the milk ordinance has been in operation about 300 licenses have been issued. This meant $300 to the city, and though many of the milk dealers are under the impression that this money will be re-turned to them they will find themselves mistaken if they undertake to collect it. So say many lawyers. JOINT PASSENGER AGREEMENT. New York, Dee 10.
