IWATERBURY EVI2NING DEMOCRAT, SATURDAY, JULY 5, 1902.
1 fall AS YOU LIKE IT Some Stray Leaves Prom a Reporter's Note Book. The As You Like It man was very much attracted .with a bulletin issued by one of the local papers during the past week., Heading the bulletin was the following: "Sensation. United States Senators in a fist fight." Im mediately under it was the following: "Warship sent for." Some persons might hare imagined whether the war ship was sent for to quell the distur bance among our country's lawmak ers. ' - Two window displays in Broadway candy-shops kept' New Yorkers staring one day recently. In one window was a log cabin made of yellow molasses candy. Even the knots in the wood were reproduced, and through the chinks imitation firelight glowed from a red electric bulb. A little further down the street a man was modeling a horse in chocolate. A Phidias could not have been more deeply absorbed in his work. The sculptor ignored the gaping crowd entirely, and, as one longing youngster remarked, "'he must have all the chocolate he wants, 'cause he hasn't licked his fingers once." Perhaps for poetic smile or quaint humor there is nothing better in the advertising line, than the Japanese- English press. A few samples: "Parcels done, up' with as much care as bestowed on her husbandry a lov ing wife." "Paper tough as elephant's hide." "The print of our book is clear as crystal: the matter elesant as a sing ing girl." ''Customers treatetP as . polite ly as by . the rival steamship , com panies." ''Silks and satins smooth, as a lady's cheek,' and colored like the rainbow." The As You Like It man heard a lit tie story about the exemplification of "training up a child in "the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from It." A couple of weeks ago a mother started her two little boys off to school in the morning and a few minutes afterwards she had oc casion to go on the back porch. There she, saw a strange sight. The two boys, that she had sent to school a short time before she now saw kneel iDg on the steps of the porch in , the position of suppliants. She , asked them what they were doing kneeling there. The older of. the two who is about 8 years replied thaf Willie had . forgotten to say his prayers before he had started for school and that he was eaytng them then. ' .' That beautiful city, Ilartford, is away ahead of Waterbury in one thing. vumn its connnes it contains a pro fessor, who is . engaged in the art of shining shoes. : Just think of it! The people of Hartford have the pleasure, if they wish to avail themselves of the opportunity, of having . their shoes shined by a professor. As one leaves the Hartford station and wanders into Asylum' street, a bootblack chair at tracts his attention. Printed neatly on the side of the chair is the follow ing sign: "Professor Frank Ramand, Union Bootblack." The common boot blacks better look out for their Inter- Acta I t 'ait V.n4-J-A.

Two judges in Toronto once upon a time, decided that the plaintiff ., In, a, libel suit must' not refuse , to answer questions concerning his relations eighteen years ago with a woman who is now married and occupying a good , position in society, and the disclosure of whose name would lead, to her be ing ostracised.. The decision is doubt less good law, but It is a striking il lustration of what cruelty and injustice can be perpretrated in the name of the law..- Were a newspaper to hold up uua.nuuiiuia pasi iiie lu yuuuu LUJU- demnation, its publisher would be pun lshed by the law, and rightly punish ed, for the misery he would bring up on a woman who for many years has been leading a respectable life, : upon her husband and upon her children. ; VT-UUl I.JUV ltT T 111 J-1V-U OU.JJ.ti. , IUC newspaper to do directly, the newspa per, can do through the machinery of the law itself. ' .- '.' '- ' ' -: It has often been a matter of won derment to the' writer why Waterbury is so shamefully maligned by out siders as a dirty, city but he has been thinking it over of late and finds sev eral things that conspire to create a bad Impression on those who are. but casually acquainted with one of the cleanest and 'prettiest little cities in New England. The first and foremost of those is in the Meadow street sta tion. Anyone who has passed through the city on the train and , had time to see the station and its environ- 1 A. A 1. ' 1 1 ! .uteuus arrives ui me conclusion ilii , mediately that Waterbury is a hope Iesss case and with reason. Another . one of the city's beauty marks is the maugaiucK river wim us ouornerous fame. Our neighbors below certainly concur in the opinion that we are "the worst ever." Finally, one of the rea sons assigned by a gentleman, who while he 13 not a resident of the city, is here most of the year, is that sever al of the newspapers of the city does not do her justice. Whether it is. so or not is a question, but at any rate it has been the writer's exeprience that Waterbury is a very much abused city abroad. . xae aa vantage oi aiajs ueiug uu time in the performance of an appoint ment f well illustrated in the following story told of one of the Vanderbilts and a person seeking a posxion. A young man, the son of an old frfend of Mr Vanderbilt, once asked his In fluence In aiding him to secure a cer tain very desirable clerkship in' a rail road office. Mr Vanderbilt, who likeit the young man and believed in his abil ity, agreed to help him. "Be here to morrow morning at ten o'clock," he said, "and I will go 'with you to see . the president of the road and say a good word for you.' The next morning at twenty minutes after ten the young man appeared in the anteroom of Mr Vanderbilts office. He was informed that Mr Vanderbilt had lef t . fifteen minutes before to attend a meeting. A few days later lie called on Mr Van derbilt.and said, with a shade of An noyance in. his tone: ""Why, Mr Van-; aerDiir, l was nere just aner ten. "But the appolntmenc was at ten," replied Mr anderbilt "It was only a matter of fifteen or twenty minutes," said the young man. "Well," answered -Mr Vanderoilt, "the twenty minutes in your case have lost your position, for the appointment was made the very day on which you were to hiye met NUTMEG GRATINGS.

Mr Hewitt had been missing from his home since Monday and is believed to have fallen into the .river at the steam boat wharf In Norwich. He was 57 years old,' a veteran of the civil war, and leaves a widow. . It is probable that never again will two crowds of men come so near fight ing as occurred last evening , in the .city.-Jiall at New.Rochelle. One-half of the crowd backed up Mayor Clarke and the other Alderman O'Connor. Coats were thrown off, sleeves roiled up, hands spat upon, and it all ended in the mayor shaking the alderman and knocking down three Or four men in so doing. Lena Bromberg, daughter of Samuel Bromberg;, a tailor of 80 , Hallock street, New Haven," was burned to death yesterday afternoon. , The girl was 8 years old, and was permitted to celebrate the' Fourth for the first time.
