' "Who caa drink the quantity of drug
tore whiskey in one (lay that those
Jew Haven detectives tiki, and re
member all their doings that day,
. must be a heteroclitical flibbertergib
bet. But the people who are foolish
enough to drink the tea and coffee
which some people are guilty of selling
knocks the spotters sky high. We
can't understand why sensible people
will pay good money for poor tea and
coffee, when they can just as easy
come to our store, and get the good
kind for the same price they pay for
the poor quality elsewhere. Well, the
liquor spies are through witli their
sensational work and the excitement
lias all blown over; now, siiee such is
the case, we hope and trust they have
ebown hundreds, yes thousands of
people, that it's all folly to drink 'in
toxicating drink every time you're
thirsty. It's all nonsense to have such
ideas. .Tust try some good, clean, nice
tasting tea or coffee when you are
- thirsty next time and see how much
happier and contented you will feel.
Itemember, one pound of our Tea will
niake 375 cups of a delicious beverage.
Figure it out and see how much per
cup it costs you. 50 cents per pound
and 4 bars of best soap with eacli
. pound. Say, who would see tlioir
child without a sled in winter, when
you can purchase a good one for 2-1

An account of a concert given in
Daubury a. few evenings since speaks
as follows of well-known Waterbury
artists: J. J. Derwiu, of Waterbury
made a decidedly favorable impres
sion in banjo and mandolin solos and
shared it with the Misses Byrne, also
of Waterbury, in a trio for two man
dolins and a piano. In his banjo play
ing particularly, Mr Derwiu .shows re
markable dexterity and the two solos
played by him were executed with
excellent taste and expression. Miss
Byrne was one of the accompanists.
A lady of this city who is a prom
inent temperance worker created lit
tle ripple of excitement yesterday by
an absent-minded mistake. Wishing
to enter a place of business in the dry

advancing a step or two she was made
aware of her mistake by her surround
ings. She had a bundle under her
cioak wlncn, to a . casual observer.

suggested the thought that Mrs Car
rie Nation had appeared in Danbuw.
There might possibly have been looks
of surprise and apprehension. The

An act from the play of "Robert
Emmet," will be given at City hall on
Sunday evening, March 17," at the
grant! entertainment to be given in
honor of St Patrick for the benefit of
the Catholic AVomen's association. The
part of the play given will be the
court room scene where Emmet makes
his immortal speech when asked by
the judge if he has aught to say why
the sentence of death should not be
passed upon him. The court scene will
be faithfully reproduced, the judges,
and attendants being in costume and
the patriot Emmet being in the dress
of the Irish gentleman of his day.
This part will be played by Edward
tu Maloney, who will also have charge
of the stage setting. - v .
The simple announcement that Ed
win Markham will be the speaker at
Jacques opera house next Sunday af
ternoon will doubtless fill the hall with
a great company of Waterbury men
eager to hear America's noted poet and

With the Hoe," Mr Markham hi?s at
tained a fame which comes to few
men. As a sociologist his opinions Of
our country and his writings are wide
ly known. .-, His topic on Sunday will
be unique, "The Teachings of Jesus as
I Understand Them." Questions con
cerning the import of Christ's life and
sayings are occupying the minds of the
deepest thinkers of the day and many
men-will consider it a high privilege
to listen to the views of such a man
as Edwin Markham. ' He proposes to
