WATEBBUHY '-EVENING DEMOCRAT. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1904.
pW - AS YOU LIKE IT. Some Stray Leaves From a Reporter's . Note BooK. The janitor employed in, a certain school, not in "Waterbury. however, re "signed his position the other day after having held the job for only a little over a week. "I guess I'm too sensi tive," he explained to a friend who asked him why he had quit. "You eee, whenever I found anything that bad been lost I always hung it up on the blackboard, where the owner covud see it and claim it. The other morn ing X went into one of the rooms early to clean tip, and there on the black board was -written: 'Find the multi plicand.' I looked all over, but I couldn't find anything. The next morning I -went into the same room and on the blackboard was written: 'Find the least common devisor.' Tuen I says to myself If them things is lost and didn't turn .up. the first thing I know they'll accuse me of swipin' them.' So I threw up the job. I guess I'm too sensitive." Linn Luce, the founder of the Press Clipping Bureau and probnbly the most expert reader of newspapers in the world, died in New York recently at the age of 88 years. When Mr Luce began the business of furnishing press clippings the Industry was in its earliest stages, and its scope was lim ited to the ornamental side like that of furnishing social and literary people with press comments upon themselves. The Luce idea was com mercial, the "ornamental never being cared for. That the Idea was sub stantial and meritorious is shown by, the fact that the Luce Bureau now ' , employs a hundred people, who read more than four thousand different publications. To build up such a bus iness Indicates that Mr Luce posses Bed ' untiring energy. And to , this fact, and that all of it was bent tow ard the perfection of the business he had Inaugurated, is undoubtedly due the brevity of his life. mm , , The average man possesses a certain amount of courage. He may not' be ine of those bold, courageous f ellows Ing acts, but nevertheless - he ha s in ; his make-tip the proper material which he "uses when opportuity presents it self. He holds it In reserve 4nd dis plays it when the proper time comes. But there a few men who lack even a part of this courage. The As Yon Like It man heard of a case which occurred yesterday In which two m'eti "proved themselves anything but" brave.n Two' little boys had fallen in the Naugatuck river. Their bodies were' floating down the river. At a distance the father of one of the children was run ning with all speed to safe them. He shouted for aid. Two men stood on the river bank not far away from the floating bodies, heard the agon'zing cries of the father, but did not move, 'did not try to, save the children. Even "one of them la said to hare refused to take one of tbe bovs from the arm of ttie exhausted father as he brought the boys safely to- the shore. ' 1 The musical critic of a well known paper being away on a certain oc , casion, the editor was called on to fill his shoes at a big musical, the event of the season. This is the way the boss . quill-driver ; handled the , affair: "As the editor of this paper," he wrote, "doesn't know aTaemise(mii 'quaver frond a diapasori,'"'or"J ''ba'sS clef, from a bone tumour, he will not be expected to give ah extended .no- tlce of this production. We can say j however, that the, type used in print--j Jng the song was clear and plain, and ) the paper seems to be. the best quality or rag. xne design on tne rront page la artistic, and the words are as ten der as a veal steak and as poetic as a song .of a meadow lark on a May morning. The melody Is sound, and Jar .."marks. The harmony appears to . v be. In a healthy condition; with no patent defects or noticeable blemishes. The tonality, according to our office boy, who knows all about It, is clear - and resonant, , and rests, so he says, on harmonic relations and melodic elements. We will sing the song to any subscriber who will pay his sub scriptions three years in advance, . throwing into it all the tendejrpathos nd unctuous emotion of our cabbage flavoured soul." - , : ; Is the Most!

The board of charities Is making considerable headway with the work of getting a room in the basement of the city hall building in shape so mat it will serve the purpose of-the preseut town store which costs $180 a year for rent and is in a rather out of the -way place at that. The new quarters will soon be ready for use and will be a big improvement on the old one.' The cost of fitting it up will not ampunt to much. Most of the stock was picked up among the debris about the city hall and the rest of it was fished, out of old, but valuable pieces at the city yard on Benedict street. ' One part of the new furnishing looks quite . fa miliar and no doubt many will recog nizee it. It is the wire screens so long in use In the office of the judge of probate and comes just , right for the too of the counter.

Insure com plete immunity from flies ; and sug gested that with the lights out and the only aperture closed the flies would give the place a wide birth. There are half a dozen or more spa cious chambers under the building which, at a small outlay can be con verted inso splendid storerooms or oifices and it is probable that the de partment of public works may de cide to do something with them. One of the rooms Is marked put as ideal headquarters for the milk inspector and the powers that be have their eye upon the largest one of all as a very suitable place for a first-class ton sorial room with an entrance at the west side of the building. It is believed that a? goo&fbarber shop with bath rootix accommodation would pay in the base ment of the hall and some of the of ficials claim they see $1,000 in it for the city. DEATHS AND FUNERALS.
