' Yesterday marked the twelfth an niversary of the birthday of Mary J.

Miss Libble Llrsing gave a recitation concerning the inauguration of President McKinley, while iilss Mary Stapleton and Flora Hellmann sang sweetly "My Wild Irish Rose." Bertha Eble and Annie Stapleton made a bit In their portrayal of two Irish comedians, while the Misses Nellie and Kittle Stapleton sang several se lections In a pleasing manner. Harry Httllman.n and ouis Stapleton made an efficient arrangement committee. As a hnal to the evening's pleasures, a repast was served. Miss Mary Stapleton was the recipient of many pretty gifts from her friends. The basketball game between the Knockabouts of the B. A. C. and the Reld & Hughes' quintet, which was arranged for last evening, was can celled by the hitter. Instead a very lively practice game was played be tween the Knockabouts and the sec ond B. A. C. live. The former, as usual, won. Their all around work was far superior to that of their oppon ents. It Is so long since the Knock abouts ha ve tasted of defeat, that they forget what defeat is. Some night during the week a return game bus been arranged With the Roger & Bros' team. This game ought to prove very interesting and exciting as the silver laddies wish to redeem the defeat suf fered at the hands of the Knockabouts a short time since. A game is also being arranged with the Union club of Thomaston to be played in Tbonuis ton. . , , . The St Thomas Cadets A. A. held a largely attended meeting in the so ciety's rooms last evening.

The board of directors will hold a meeting shortly and ap point a manager for the coming sea son. Then baseball affairs will boom.

V Inspector Says Milk Dealers Are Slow f to Register. The board of health 'held its regu lar meeting yesterday afternoon. It was ' voted that ; Health officer Frost be apiointed a committee to pie pure a draft of an ordinance to be submitted "to" the aldermen covering the vote . proposition to make it ob ligatory upon physicians to report all cases of consumption to the board of health. A' communication - a3 Ie. ceived from , the Scovill Manufactur ing Co in reference to the burning of reiuso on tbejr property on Dublin street. It stated that much of the work was due to boys and that they will do all in their power to prevent a continuance of the nuisance. The communication was ordered on file and Inspector Moses ordered to use his own judgment as to what he shall do in case turtner action should be neces sary. L. II. Toucey Was heard relative to the condition of Ureat Brook in the rear of his premises -on East Main street. It was the sense of the meet ing that Mr Toucey appear before the aldermen and state his case. The question at burning soft coal at the Scovill house was discussed and a vote passed instructing the clerk to notify the. proprietor to abate the nuis ance, - A draft of an ordinance was sub mitted by Attorney Kellogg In refer ence to th6 milk iuestlun. it provides for a penalty for dealers who refuse to register. The matter wili come before the aldermen in the near future. The 'report of . Sanitary Inspector Moses tor the month of Ifebruary was read and approved. , It . was as fol lows: Contagious diseases, scarlet fever, 11; diphtheria, 5; measles, 2; whooping cough, 2; houses fumigated; scarlet fever, .

The milk inspector stated that he is experiencing considerable difficulty in getting some of the dealers to reg ister, but it is thought that nil will see the wisdom of complying with the law before the proposed new ordinance goes into effect. The inspector asked what standard he should go by In his test of nilk. lie was told to conform with the standard used by the Con necticut agricultural station. All the bills were approved with the exception of one from Hackman Mc Carthy, which the board considered a trifle high and ordered it returned for correction. The board then adjourned. SKATING ON THE ASPHALT. Young America Discovers Easy Mode of Locomotion. A couple of City hall officials were standing of one of the office windows the other day when they noticed a small boy, with a pair of roller skates .under his arm and a dog by his side, halt , and pass several satisfactory glances across the nice, smooth, as phalt pavement which adorns West Main street at this point. Then the boy squatted down on the curb and buckled on his rollers. In short or der he was skimming over the as phalt, the dog scampering at his side, apparently enjoying himself as thor oughly as his young master. There i a little grade from the cen ter to Leavenworth street, and It took "Young America" but a short time to discover that by giving his rollers a good start from Exchange place, he could "coast" almost the entire dis tance occupied by the asphalt. He enjoyed this new feature for some time, leisurely skating from Leaven worth street to the center and flying full speed on the return trip down. Suddenly an Idea seized the lad. It was to use the dog as a means of loco motion on his up-grade trips. That dog was "dead easy." He allowed his master to point his head toward the center and upon hearing such terms as "sic 'em! cats! s-z-z-z!" he made a bee line ahead. A tug at his appen dage caused him to turn his head once or twice, but a few more "slcs" and he forgot the weight he was towing along In his anticipation of meeting a cat around the corner. Just before ar riving at his termination the boy let loose his "bunches of five," turned and started back on his downward "coast." Attachment to his master made the dog forget everything of cats and lie turned and . followed. The boy evi dently liked the dog, too, for he was very much "attached" to him on sev eral more trips like the one just de scribed. The dog soon became accus tomed to the trick and it was the boy who first ttred of it. During one of these trips, a couple of women happened along. One of them, a rather eulerly lady, was the flrt to notice the skater. When she saw him grasp the dog's tail and start off, she almost went Into hysterics. The scene struck her as being so very funny that she was' obliged to stop, double almost In two and reach faint ly toward her companion for support, while tears ran down both cheeks. . So hearty was her laughter that it be came contagious anl the Watchers in the City hall found themselves con vulsed watcblng the effect of the scene on the woman, who reluctantly contin ued on, now and then turning her head to see If the boy were about to repeat his performance. But the boy had enough .of . it about then and started off. , " v The City hall men hope to see him around there again some day: - RAW NAVAL RECRUITS.

Chairman Hall presid ing, and all the members being present except Air Tyrrell. " . Alderman Cross brought up the mat ter of covering Great brook in the rear of L. II. Toucey 's property," and after explaining the - situation he made an attack upon the board of nublic works which came near creating a row. "This matter," said Mr Cross, "has been pro nounced a nuisance by. the board of health; that body recommended to the board of aldermen that it be abati the aldermen referred it to the boaru of public works and the board of pub lic works sent it back to the board of health. Now. the board of public works must be Idiotic or else they wanted to slap the board of health In. the face. I think that' .... Mr Chesson (furiously) "Mr Chair man, I rise to a point of order. I ob ject to such language!" Alderman Blakeslee (with clenched fists i "I second Mr Chesson' s mo tion!" ' - :-. , ... Chairman Sail passed the matter over by remarking that he would take it for sxanted that the alderman de sired to droo the word "idiotic," This was followed by a long dis cussion, during which Alderman GoS9 pitched into his neighbor, Mr Cross, informing him that it was the duty of the board of health, not the board of, TirOiliA wnrkc and Hint tln.w hiill nut exhausted their powers in the prem ises nntil they had determined who owns such portions of the brook as have been adjudged a nuisance and no tified them to abate it. If the people failed to comDlv with the ordei then it would be all risht for them to come to the aldermen for further Instruc tion. Mr Cross: "We (meaning the board of health don't know what to do." Alderman White: "Well, then, if you don't, why not ask the city attor ney?" .... This angered Alderman Cross, and he replied with all the force ho could muster up: "It's tip to the aldermen to ask the attorney that question if they want to." Levi Toucey was then heard and after some more talk the matter was finally referred to the board of public works for investiga tion and report. The points of the brook to be covered lie between North Kim street and the rear f the old Burritt property on Brook street. The recommendation of the board of public safety that it be granted power to elect one more policeman was de feated by a party vote, all the re publicans opposing it and the demo crats voting in favor of the recom mendation. All the. recommendations of the board of public works, printed herein before. Were adopted. City Attorney Kellogg was heard re garding the recommendation of the board of public works that permission be secured to issue $30,000 worth of bonds for water meters. He said that he appeared at the request of the may or. The end In view was to find out what the board intended to do in the matter, so that the attorney could gov ern himself accordingly. The matter was taken from the table and passed, all the members favoring it except Al dermen Mahaney, Boylan, Phelan and Morris. The bill of J. A. Edmciidson for $ll.Cj, the amount of a milk license, a city court fine and interest, was re ferred to the board of finance. The following petitions were referred to the board of public works: Eugene F. Clarkin et al, for the layout and grade of Hose street; Matt Rich, for a boot blacking stand at 11-1 Bank street; U. A. Warner et al for two electric lights on Dublin street; D. Shapiro et al for a sewer in Branch and Grant streets; John O'Connor, for permission to con duct a popcorn stand. A communication was received from Charles H. Payne et al, asking that the windmill on Round Hill street be abolished, alleging that It is a public . nuisance. The matter was referred to the board of health. v On petition of J. W. Garrity et al, the report of the bureau of assessment relative to the" award of benefits and damages arising from the extension of Round nill street to Camp street was taken from the table, former action on the same reconsidered and the whole matter recommitted to the bureau of assessment. The people claim that they were assessed too high, consider ing the cost of doing the work. Notices' were received from ' Mary Lynch and Anna L. Griffin of their In tention to claim damages ifrom the city for injuries received on defective side walks, the former at the, corner of South Elm and Union streets and the latter at 170 East Main street Both were referred to the committee on law.. . . The committee appointed to consid er the complaint of residents of the North end regarding the purchase of a new site for the Locust street school reported through Alderman Blakeslee, who gave the dimensions of both prop erty1 and price and a lot of other In formation. It was decided to defer action on the report until it has been reduced to writing. The board adjourned for a week. DE WET'S RAPID MARCHNIG.
