Not that any body had ever tried to enter his Louse feloniously and tangibly, but! many a masked desperado had bro ken into, his imagination and robbed, him of much valuable sleep. Hardlyl a night passed that he did not have) a rush of burglars to the head as he went about, fastening windows, set-i ting electric alarms and tilting; chairs in the passageways so they-' would tumble over and make a racket' If anybody touched them, says the Brooklyn Eagle. , i "Parmeliay". he said to his wife one night, "have you been up to see if the girl's window is locked?" j "No, nor I ain't a-goin'; that's more," Mrs. Blibmore answered,, sharply, from her pillow." "Sakesj alive! How could anybody git in at J a third story window? , Do you , ex-1 pect ' 'em to come with flyin ma-i chines?"-'.. "';:,.( ' "All right," , said Blibmore, re-, signedly. "I can stan' it if you can. But when you gitTip some mornin. an' find your silveo: spoons gone,; don't come to me for any more." j "Joshua Blibmore, you've been say-; in' that for the las' 20 years, an'; we've got them same spoons yet.: Goodness gracious! I "most - wish1 the burgarM hurry up and git 'em,' so's to have it over with." ' . .Blibmore slept very little that night; and even; that little was trou-' bled by dreams; of burglars letting themselves down to the girl's win dow from the roof or climbing . up to it with 40-foot ladders. Some time after midnight, as he lay awake lis-i tening, he' thought he heard a noise downstairs. Slipping cautiously Into the upper hall, - he leaned over the banister and harked. Yes, he was sure he heard the sibilant sounds of whispers below. Tip-toeing back to the bedroom, he closed the door noiselessly and awoke his wife. j "Sh! Parmelia," he whispered, "the house is full of burglars!" - "Stuff and nonsensei" said Mrs. Blibmore, who had heard the same remark many times before. "Do, for mercy's sake, git into bed an' go to sleep." A j "But, Parmelia, I tell you there are burglars downstairs. I heard 'em." "Well, why don't you go down an chase "em out? You don't want me to do it' for you, do you?" With which the good woman turned over and resumed her slumber. Blibmore, refolver in hand, stole out to the hall and listened again. This time he heard no sound, save the measured ticking of the dining room clock. As minutes "of silence passed, he began to doubt whether what he had heard before was really in the house. It might have been a Etreet car; trolleys sometimes make hissing noises that at a distance' may be mistaken for whispers close: at hand. Somewhat emboldened , by this thought, he went softly down the stairs, stopping often to hark with bated breath. At the dining-; room door he stood, well behind the casement, and peered cautiously into the room. The liirht, which he ol-' March 19 Basket ball game, Com pany G vs Hartford II. S. A.

The amusing comedy drama, "Side Tracked," will be the attraction at Poll's this evening, and it should pro TviaodiTiof entertainment. It isa v iuc comedy that is most effective in pro voking laughter and has gaanea popu larity, by reason of its originality, the quality of its story and the opportuni ties iU affords for good, clean, whole some amusement.

It has come to be" the expected to find large audiences every Monday at the Jacques, and the matinee now on certainly offers no exception to the rule.' . And there 1 certainly a show running that warrants the very larg est attenkJanice not only to-day, but ev ery day throughout the week. Leroy and Clayton, who offer the principal act, have a funny comedietta entitled "Hogan -of the Hansom that , is said to have more laughs than could be crowded Into the biggest hansom ever made. Both, are old time vaudeville stairs, and the 'frequency with which their; names are seen on . the Keith, Proctor and Orpheum' circuits as head liners Is the best evidence that can be given of their albility.

'i As he did so a, sharp "Sh!" came through the closed door of the closet just behind vhim the closet where , the silver was kept. Blibmore leaped be-S hind a corner of the sideboard and called out hoarsely: "Who's there?" , "Bang!" A loud report from thei closet was the answer. . - ; Bang! went Blibmore's pistol, as he broke from the room and dashed up the stairs, four steps at a jump. : The , shooting had aroused Mrs. !j31ibmore, and she sprang from bed just as her husband bounded into tho. room, slamming and locking the door behind him. . . . . ; ' "What's the matter?'? she asked ''I've killed i burglar I guess," Blibmore gaspeq. "Killed a burglar? Where?" ' '.' "In the -dining-room closet. He' shot at me through the door, and J, shot back at him." 1 Mrs. Blibmore had her doubts. She! knew her husband. Regardless of his warning she opened the door and listened over the banister. A All was quiet below. . - "I don't believe a word of it," said she, starting down' the stairs. ; "Parmelia," Blibmore implored,' "don't -go down there. I tell you they're armed to the teeth." " ! i "Fetch that p"istol, then, an' come along with me," said she. "Well see about.it." ' ; Blibmore; kept close to his wife,' whose courage was doubtless aug mented by the belief that the bur-,' glars existed only - in her husband's' imagination. ' At the dining-room, however, she paused with a look of horror on her face. In the bright light she saw a Bmall red stream trickling out under the closet door. ', "Didn't I tell you so?" Blibmore's voice had a hollow sound. "Didn't I say I killed a burglar? Shan't I go for a policeman?" "Hark! " Mrs. Blibmore listened intently. . ; Sh-h-h-h! v A long-drawn, hissing sound issued from the closet. ang! A sharp report followed from the same quarter. , 1 "I declare!" said she, "if them strawberry preserves ain't workin'!" She strode across and opened the closet door. 1 ' '. .

When he had finished he was in vited by the mate to warm and dry, himself by the galley fire, and to eat a piece of pork and a ship's biscuit, the latter as hard as iron. The driv er ate the pork without touching the biscuit. When he had finished he handed back the biscuit to the mate with the remark: . "Many thanks, sailor man; there's jtour plate' Cleveland Leader.

In the dramatized version of Count Tolstoi's great novel "Resurrection," which will be presented at Poll's to morrow evening, there is-an answer to the question, "Am I my brother's keeper?" ' Since- Cain's cry - first fell on listening ears, mam .has faced this problem. He has tried to avoid .an af flrmative -answer. "All I wnat Is to be let alone," cries the millionaire, who has wrung his wealth from a suf fering people; blusters the politician, who is cowering ., behind the gains of a corruptible career; whines the crim inal pursued by the law. But the problem of where, why and when de mands an answer." Each returns to Cain's cry. In . "The ' Resurrection" this problem is solved like a geomet rical proposition, and the proposition that each one must work out in daily life is demonstrated. Everyone" should see this great play, whose lesson may help over many hard places. , , "WAY DOWN EAST." William . A. Brady's production of "Way Down (East" will be given at Poll's Wednesday afternoon and even ing, which will Ibe welcome news. This has always been a very popular play in' Waterbury, and as the production is kept up to Jthe same high s'tandard that Mr Brady set for It five years ago it will be as welcome as ever. There will undoubtedly be two large audiences at Poli's to see the play, and they will certainly be treated to a fine performance. Sale of seats to morrow.! . - , ,. : ; '. "A JOLLY AMERICAN TRAMP."

Carpenter. : Along the line of the Trenton '& New Brunswick railroad, between Milltown and Payton, is a ramshackle old barn, at the end of which is a windmill tower and Windmill that look like a piece out Of , a Dutch landscape, says the Philadelphia Press. , The natives tell wonderfully inter esting stories of this mill's history, how it was brought from Holland in sections many years ago, and erected by the then owner of the farm, a worthy descendant ,of a line of bur ghers, and withan ancestry ihat would give him a seat of honor at a reunion of the Holland society. 1 ' As a matter of f aotthe mill is only about 20 years old, and was built by an Irish carpenter, who was employed by the Scotchman who c-ecupied the farm, renting it1 from a Frenchman who then held title to the property. But it makes an interesting, though a Bpurious antique, and is a veritable treasuretrove for a small army of wa ter colorists, sketchers and amateur photographers. ' NEW IMPERIAL SERVICE ORDER Birthday . Honor Conferred by IClns Edward Upon Woman In Postal Work. Among the birthday honors con ferred by King Edward, perhaps the most unusual is that which has made a woman a companion of the new Imperial Service Order, says a London report. The woman in question is a Miss Smith, who nearly 30 years ago began with a staff of 20 clerks some small work connected with the savings bank branch of the general post office. Now her staff numbers between 800 and 900 women, and the work they do covers, a great part of the whole sav ings business. Miss Smith has .been a pioneer in the development of woman labor in other branches of postal work than her own. .From her office the first woman clerks of the postal or der branch were drawn, and) it is to her powers of organization that the great increase of woman workers throughout the post office is said to be due. With all her ability, Miss Smith receives only $2,500 a year a large sal ary in English eyes. . Lady with Pink Teeth. The newest turn-in Parisian musio halls will shortly be the appearance of a lady with pink teeth. She is a na' tive of Canton, but born of French parents. Her teeth, which are perfect, are of a semi-transparent substance resembling pale-colored coral. A dentist who has examined them says that they will never decay. They are hard as diamonds, and the latter gems are the only material with which a mark can be made on their surface. Inseparable Word. "Say," asked the red-faced man in the hotel wating-room. "How do you spell 'unmitigated?' " "Why," replied the stranger next to him "it's u-n-m-i-t say, my friend, I wouldn't advise you "to call a man a liar of any sort in a letter. You'll get yourself in trouble." Philadelphia Rress. . ' ' SECOND FIGHT Of MONITOR February 28. 1063 Copyright, 1903, by G. L. Kilmer. '- N the 2Sth of February, 18G3, Captain John L. Worden, the hero of the Monrtor-Merrimac ; battle, won fresh laurels with a new and improved type of Ironclad. While attacking Fort McAl lister, Ga., with the . Montauk, one of Captain Ericsson's later creations, he incidentally wiped out with hot shot the Confederate cruiser Nashville," the first armed cruiser . put afloat by the south. "' ' , . '. ' ' . Worden's injuries in the fight with the Merrimac disabled him for several months. 'He joined Dupont's south Atlantic , squadron in - January, 1863, with the Montauk and lost no time in testing the new war engine. Admiral Dupont's task was j to maintain a blockade against Charleston and, keep the enemy's ships from carrying arms or supplies from England to the pent lip1 Confederacy. McAllister stood at the mouth of the Ogeeehee river on the Georgia coast to guard the chan nel and shield the movements of Con federate blockade runners using that entrance, one of the few which the Federals had ' not securely closed. It was at the southern, extremity of the coast region which Dupont was at tempting ; to subjugate. At the time of Worden's arrival the Confederate cruiser Nashville wasup the Ogeeehee river watching for a chance to elude Dupont's vigilant fleet and get to sea. The ship had already made history as a daring blockade runner. She was a fine, swift side wheel steamer built for trade between New York and Charleston. The Con federates seized her after, the fall of Sumter, and she was sent out as .a ship of war with an armament of two 12 pounder guns and a crew of forty men. In October, 1861, she ran the Federal blockade out of Charleston and won the distinctloa of flying the first Con federate flag in British waters. She captured and burned a Yankee ship in the entrance of the British channel and was held under surveillance by 4 the United States warship Tuscarora for several weeks. ' . In February, 1862, the Nashville was again in American waters and by a daring trick' ran through the Federal blockading 'fleet into Beaufort, N. O. Running the fire of Burnsde's block ading ships off Beaufort, she put in at Georgetown, ' S. G., where she was. turned over to private owners and un der a changed name had an exciting career as a blockade runner, flying the 0APTAI5T WOBDBN'S MONTAUK BHEIiIiINCI THE CBTTISEB NASHVILLE. : British flag., Finally she was bottled up in the Ogeeehee by a flotilla of Fed eral gunboats. While waiting to es cape the vessel was overhauled and fitted out for a Confederate cruiser un der the name of the Rattlesnake, but the original name of Nashville always clung to her. While watching a chance to run out of the Ogeeehee on Feb. 27 she grounded just above Fort McAllis ter. During the time that the Nashville lay up the, river Fort McAllister had been strengthened in order to make the cruiser's hiding secure from the Feder als, who were watching her. The fort itself mounted nine guns. Across the channel below a diagonal line of piles had been driven and outside of them a bed of submarine torpedoes carefully laid to catch any ship attempting to pass the obstructions. Dupont sent Worden to try his guns against . the fort as an experiment for the new type of monitor, several of them having joined his fleet for the purpose of at tacking Sumter and the other forts in Charleston harbor. Worden would have taken in the original monitor, but she had gone down at sea on the trip from Fortress Monroe. Worden made three dashes at the fort, and perhaps the third would not have been attempted but for the1 fact that while reconnoitering with a view to catch the Nashville on Feb. 27, when there was a dense fog over the rlyer, he saw the cruiser aground ; TOM .ijjMiimi :0 A Fortieth A nni-Oersary War JTtory above the batteries. . Before the first attack the Confederate range marks for the gunners in the fort were skill fully removed by a party in boats. Then the Montauk steamed up to with in 150 yards of the obstructions and threw out her anchors as a challenge for a gun duel. Like the original Mon itor, the Montauk's deck was almost wholly submerged, -and the enemy found her a very small target. She lay .close under the fort for four hours! and emptied her shell chests upon the works without doing the enemy any harm so far as could be seen by a glass. ' - - ' : 'V,. Coming out of her first scrimmage wholly uninjured, although the ene my's gunners landed many shots against her iron sides, the Montauk only waited to refill her magazine and then ' boldly v started in again. This time she anchored within 1,000 yards of, the enemy's guns, directly opposite an . eight inch columbiad. Taking the -gun chamber of the columbiad for his principal' target, Worden bombard ed it fiercely with his eleven inch, and fifteen Inch guns, the armament of the Montauk being one of each. The first gun of the monitor was fired a,t 7:45 o'clock in the morning. , At 8:30 o'clock a shell aimed at the columbiad struck a, thirty-two pounder gun near the co lumbiad, killing the gun chief, Major Gallle, who stood by encouraging his men, Worden's heavy shells razed the parapet in front of the guns , of the fort, leaving the men in the batteries very much , exposed, but they kept up a hot fire on the Montauk, moving their pieces from point; to point to bafr fie the Federal marksmen. . Although the Montauk stood farther; off in this attack than during the pre vious one, she was struck of tener, re ceiving forty-one shots In all. Many of the missiles were ten inch, but they rolled off from the iron plates,' leaving scarcely a dent. . .' When Worden steamed the Montauk up in front of Fort McAllister early pn the morning of Feb. 28, a fog still hung over the scene,' and, the.tide being fa-, vorable, he anchored within 800 yards of the enemy's guns. At the same time three wooden gunboats and a mortar boat sent .by Dupont, to sup port the attack , took station near the monitor ; and opened , upon the fort, The Confederate cruiser Nashville iay stranded ; 1,200 yards from the , Mon tauk beyond a marsh of tall canes. The upper decks of the. cruiser , were visible from, the turret of the monitor. ; The moment, his , wooden consorts opened upon the fort Worden trained his guns upon the , Nashville. The cruiser had often been sighted before by Federal ships reconnoitering around the fort and had always eluded cap ture and battle by fleeing up the riven, Worden determined to finish her now, that she lay at his mercy before she could float and get back up the river. All the guns of the fort poured their eight inch and ten inch shots upon the Montauk, but Worden ignored . them entirely, and" In turn the Confederate gunners Ignored . the wooden ships. Only one shot from the fort struck the gunboats, "and that was from a thirty two pounder and did but little damage. The fire of the fort upon the monitor was fast and furious, but the gunners were evidently excited and desperate, for, out of the hundreds aimed at the Montauk only flve: found the little tar get Worden got accurate range, on the Nashville In spite of the fog. He was as close to the obstructions in the channel as it was safe to go. The first few ; shells of the Montauk set the cruiser on fire in the wooden upper works, and about that time the fog grew denser, completely shutting off the view from the Federal gunners. Still they continued firing according to the direction and elevation already ob- It was just twenty minutes after Worden fired his first shot when the flames burst out on the Nashville, Then thirty minutes of dense fog in tervened, and at the end of fifty min utes, the fog clearing, it was seen that the 1 fire had increased. A pivot gun mounted abaft the mainmast of the burning cruiser exploded from the In tense heat and a : few minutes . later her smokestack- disappeared under a good shot om the turret of the Mon tauk. The flames soon reached the magazine of the ship, which exploded with tremendous force, leaving t the cruiser a smoking ruin. When the Nashville's paagazine exploded, the Federal vessels ceased firing and dropped down the river, followed by random shots from the fort During his many trips up to the fort In the Montauk Worden had passed the Confederate torpedoes going and coming without meeting with harm, but in his last withdrawal the monitor ran upon one whiclj stove a great hole in her side below the water line. The Confederates in the fort had seen the monitor pass and repass the torpedoes harmlessly so often that they gave no attention to her as she dropped away down the channel. Besides, the fog hid her from view of the fort, and Worden succeeded in beaching her out of sight of the enemy. In a few days I the wound was .repaired by bolting a piece or boiler iron over the gap, and the Montauk went back to her station on the blockade, doubly a hero in. Wor den's second monitor fight She sur vived a fearful rain of shells as well as a torpedo thrust and had also snuffed out a Confederate cruiser that bid fair at one time to rival the career of the Alabama.
