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 Talk" ready for a grand opening on a" certain date, and suppose, for some unkuown rea son, it was so (oh, what a supposition) and you forgot the date, then-fore yon did not attend, wouldn't wou be mad? Yes, sirree, and so would we. You see. bv forcetting dates, you often get left. There are other dates which, by forgetting, cause you no end of trouble. Now to help you avoid missing rtap' pound our nice tasting lea or fresh Toasted good quality cofi'ee, with a beautiful calendar for Its an ornament for any parlor in the city.

The remains of Fred, the 4-mouths-old child of Mr and Mrs Fred lltrson, who died yesterday at the family resi dence at Main street, Waterville. was taken to Stamford to-day for burial. Ti;is is delightful Christmas weather, so much so that overcoats were dis carded to-day and people walked about town atiiivd in light costumes, giving a kind of Fourth of July appearance to tilings in the center. Mrs Alice ItcHey. r.ged 70 years, died ;i:;r evening at the Waterbury hospital. The funeral will take place Wednesday morning at !' o'clock from the residence of Mrs Santeul Snpgg to the church of the Immaculate Conception. Tile general committee connected with St Patrick's fair held a meeting jvslerday afternoon and completed the plans for the fair.

Cynthia Dudley, aged 45 years, wife of Sanitary Inspector Harry Moses, died Saturday afternoon at her home in Simiarivilie. She had been a suf ferer for many years and tried almost everything, even to a change of cli mate, fur the benefit of her health, but nothing gave much relief. Besides her husband she leaves two children, Har old and lienah. The funeral took place this afternoon, with service at Hall Memorial chapel and interment in Riverside- cemetery. Mayor KilduSE arrived home Satur day night from the south, where he had been in attendance on the conven tion of the League of American Munici palities as the representative of' the city of Waterbury. He enjoyed the trip very much, but was rather sur prised at the chilly weather there at this season. He took a light overcoat and when he reached Charleston he found that an ulster would have been much more appropriate. At no time during his stay there was the weather as warm as it is here to-day. He was much pleased with what he heard and saw during the trip, and states that while the south is a great place to live in. still a place in the old New England stales is much preferable to him. Last Saturday afternoon Attorney John J. O'Xeill, as commissioner of the estate of the late Elizabeth Fitz gerald, held a hearing on the claims of Mrs Dan Dwyer of New York. Mrs Dwyer is the wife of Dan Dwyer, John L. Sullivan's sparring partner, when he was in his glory. She claimed that about four years ago while she was very ill and near to death she had $400 drawn from the Bowery bank. This sum she divided with Mrs Fitzgerald in two equal portions, thinking tt.t. she herself would never live to spend her own share. She recovered, after a long Mucks, only to find that her old friend, Mrs Fitzgerald, had gone to her last resting place. Some time ago Mrs Fitzgerald died i:i an asylum for the insane. Mrs Dwyer had not the Bowery bank book with her and could not. find it: she was under the impression that after she drew all the money enterea on it she Durncu it. de cision was deferred. More than 500 persons attended the Y. M. C. A. meeting at Jacques opera house yesterday afternoon and listened to a stirring address by William Blaikie, a weil-knowu lawyer of I'ew York city. The meeting was opened by an orchestra prelude which was followed by singing of appropriate hymns. Secretary Ross then offered prayer, at the conclusion of which the Rev Dr Anderson read selections from the chapter of Joshua. Isaac B. Clark then delighted his audience with two vocal solos of a high order. The Rev Dr Anderson then introduced Mr Blaikie as the speaker of the day. Mr Blaikie is an interesting speaker, plain, accurate and frank in his statements. He handled his topic, "Secret Sins of Young Men," without gloves and made a favorable impression with hts audi ence. After his very entertaining and instructive address, Mr Blaikie was heartily applauded. Many persons, after the meeting, went up on the stage and shook hands with him. During the meeting Mr Ross stated that pamphlets bearing upon the sub ject of which Mr Blaikie treated in his address could be secured free at the Y. M. C. A. office. These pamphlets, which contain very interesting read ing, were written by Rev F. B. Meyer of "London, while Rev Dr Theodore Li. Cuyler of Brooklyn wrote the Introduc tion. Saturday afternoon a crowd of youngstersvwent out towards Pearl, lake for the purpose of bringing home Christmas trees, and rambling about in that neighborhood they discovered a large pile of wood near the roadside, which men had hauled there during the past week or two. They conclud ed that it would make a good fire, and after picking up a lot of leaves and placing them under the wood, a match was applied and in a few sec onds' the biggest blaze ever seen in that part of the town was in progress and the young rascals who had start ed It were scampering in all directions. It is said that the. names of some of the boys are known to the owners of the wood, but whether they -will do anything about it or not Is something that has not yet, become public prop erty. This and other work of a simi lar" nature that is going on every day in the week in that section is the pre liminary step to the stale reform school for while some people may prefer to suffer losses rather than go Into the courts to seek redress, others look at things differently, so that If these youngsters keep on they will some day find themselves in court, charged with malicious Injury to private property, and then their parents will open their eyed to the injury they did their chil dren In allowing them too much rope at an -age when they scarcely knew right from wrong. - Benjamin -Marcus .of the: Yale Law school Is home on his Christinas vaca te -' ' :' '.
