Amonsr the anteloDe in the hnse dou- vtle menagerie connected with JSig Sau jtelle's Nine Consolidated Railroad OShows, to be seen Wednesday afternoon and- evening, May 2o, in v aterbury,, there, are two which are of particular interest to everybody. These are tne representatives . of the species known as the deloo and were captured in north Africa last year. A remarkable peculiarity of these animals is found in a paii1 of tear glands, which lie hori zontally in a narrow streak across the ihollow of the eyes. When excited the animal wilj cause the glands to open. not unlike the nostrils of a snorting horse. The deloo is of a fawn color ori the back with a tinge of yellow in front. Its ankles are almost s black, -vvhile the flanks are white. ' Black sftripes Tun along its head and ter minate on a dark brown tuft. There is every other known specie of ante lope to be found in Mr Sautelle's- men agerie, which is replete with the most perfect specimens of animal life.

Clowes, who appeared in this city dur ing the present season. Accompanying the picture is the following sketch: "Mary Louise Clowes, whose portrait appears on this page, is a young actress whose debut was made in Mrs Fiske's cbnipany two seasons ago. She is the daughter of a Manufacturer long prom inent in Waterbury, Conn. . Her moth er is a member of the Blacknall family of North Carolina. ' Miss Clowes, after finishing her school education, pre pared for the stage. Her first appear ance before the public was effected in 'Mary of Magdala.' Her second en gagement was with Robert Downing' s company in .'The Honorable John North.' The past season she played the part of Belle Gordon in the melo drama "At Crinple Creek." Miss Clowes Is pretty, her voice is excellent, and in her . brief experience she has proved herself to be equally well equipped for serious and comedy roles. Herxheart is in her work and she bids fair to win success. Having finished the season, she is now in . New York seeking a suitable engagement for the coming theatrical year." :: Few in the theatrical profession have a greater fund -of anecdotes . per taining to people of the stage than has Joseph Slater. Here is one recently told by him : , T-.A "heavy man" whos'e natural ' humor, inclined him more to comedy than to the line of parts he was por i traying, - was condemned to meet the ! dramatic fate of all bad men in melo- drama death during the last act. i Two soldiers in the play were assign ed to shoot him, but, unfortunately for the progress of the ' scene, both guns missed fire The "heavy man," however, proved equal to the embar rassing situation, for his death was the cue for the climax, and it had to take place. Gasping ' for breath, and clutching his coat in the region of his heart, he dramatically cried .nit: "I die: shot by an invisible air gun! But with my dying breath I curse the niggardly government that does not NAUGATUCK NUGGETS. The Dramatic Season ,at Gem Opera House Closed Last Night.

Xhoiaanda Found onv Vagrant. iFence Homie Stored Witli Old ' Family Treasures. - ALBANY,' N, Y., May 21.-TThe sensa tional results of raids by the Albany police upon a resort in South Lansing street, intended to break up a "growler gang," were believed to afford a , se quel to the recent mysterious raid up on the family tomb on the old Living ston .estate below Hudson. . V A collection of jewelry . of intrinsic value running into the thousands of dollars and of priceless value as heir looms was found upon the person of Thomas King, one of the vagrants, ind concealed about the house. The arrival of Chief of Police Maloy of Tivoli-on-Hudson , has exploded the tomb robbery end of the story, but brought, to light the fact that the fam ily residence of General Frederic de Peyster at Tivoli was looted on Mon day, nig'ht in the absence of the fam ily, and Chief Maloy conclusively iden tified practically all of the booty as belonging to the De Peyster family. From him it was learned that this is the third robbery of the house. Upon the last occasion, ' he said, $27,000 worth of jewelry was taken. He fully identified King,' who is a wandering tanner, and William Johnson of Hud son, who is a cripple, as two of three men whom he himself saw on Mon day night near the De Peyster house. Charles Murphy, also of Hudson, is in custody and . is believed to be the third man. Three other men, classed by the police as "hoboes,'.' were arrest ed in 'the raid, which was made upon complaint of neighbors. If the gang had dispersed as the policemen com manded no arrests would have been made,, and the jewelry might never have been recovered. They resisted, however,, and .were brought to police headquarters. When King was search ed the amazing collection 'of jewelry was found upon him. He declared that he , found , it beside the railroad track near Reading, Pa. Tie house was then searched, and an additional lot of the stuff vas found, including scatter ed fragments in the back yard. The loot recovered includes two or three hundred articles, most of them r marked with names, monograms or initials of the De Peyster and Living ston "families, which intemarried, or with those of ancestors.; For instance, there is a ring marked "Anne Watts, July, 1775," and a locket marked with the De Peyster monogram fnd the following inscription: "Helen Living ston, Wife of Frederic De Teyster, Esq., Died on the Night of 25th Sep tember, 1801, in the 28 yr. of her age Granddaughter of . Robert Gilbert Liv ingston." ' -' In addition to these the police have found in the local pawnshops a number of valuable articles pawned by , mem-: bers of thegang. The police say that King and his companions are of the clumsiest sort of tramp thieves. Some of , the articles of bullion value alone as high as $75 and $100 they had pawned' for 50 cents. A " diamond brooch had been sold for $2, and all the money had been spent for drink. . v Ke said it was now known that no jewelry was entombed with the beauti- ful Lady Mary Livingston. Members of the family and neighbors who, were present at 'her funeral had . long ago disposed of the 'jewelry legend with the well authenticated statement that the only thing with , her in the casket was a cluster of roses. King and the restpf the gang have been sent to the penitentiary on charges of vagrancy for thirty days pending Investigation. .'- ..' Kindness of Heart. "What, makes you tell such ex- traordinary stories about your '.fish ing trips?" : "Well," answered Mrl Bliggins, "If you could see how disappointed the folks are when I don't tell 'em a few good ones, you'd realize that it's just kindness of heart." .

For each pound of its'owh weight an 'elephant can pull .72 of a pound;' su. camel, .76, and a horse 1.17 of a . pound. A man can pull .82 of his own weight. j A Schoolboy's Vengeance. , . Forty years ago a boy was whipped, as he considered, unjustly, in a country schoql in New YofIi state.

ADMISSION 25c . ; SHORTER WORK DAY. 12 Hors a Day Good for a Man One Woman Says. Hartford, May 21. The Equal Rights club held its last regular meeting of the season in the Cheney building last evejiing,' adjourning subject to the call of the president. In the absence of the president, Mrs James , G. Bacon, the chair "was occupied by Charity Com missioner James G. Bacon, who talked on the labor . question, . "Should ..the Hours of Labor Be Shortened?" Mr Bacon is a compositor employed by the Case Lockwood & Brainard Co, . and lids until recently been president of the Hartford Typographical union. He paid special attention in his talk to the trade with which he is, from long connection with it, thoroughly fa miliar. He also traced the growth of trades unions, which he said ", were formed, on the brotherhood of man, principle, with the idea that a man should look out for his fellows as much as for himself. He. also spoke of the combinations among the employers of labor to control the output of articles and prices. He said that trusts were trades unions among employers. Com missioner Bacon referred to the bill which has been before congress to make the legal day for all government contract work eight hours, and fa vored the passage of such a bill. Econ omists had declared that ..the world's work could be done in less than eight hours a day. ' 'He spoke of the organization of the local Central Labor union and refer red to the movement some years ago for , the early closing of ' the grocery stores. When he first - came to the city all stores were kept 'open even ing:s, but the custom had been changed and the time would come when the stores would be closed every evening. One of those present didn't see how people were to arrange to make their own purchases if they were, employed the same hours that the stores :. were1 kept open, and Mr Bacon struck a blow at .woman's love for shopping when he said that It wasn't necessary to make purchases in person that the telephone could be used to . order things. , One woman thought the men who worked twelve hours a day were the happiest - and that it was better for them to have their minds occupied. If the men were to work only six hours a day, the women, also, should have their workday cut down. In this con-' nection there was some discussion as to the way things could be arranged so that a woman could do her house Work "in fewer hours. . ".' fimane Prisoner. 1 While a Swiss policeman w as conduct ing a handcuffed Italian prisoner into Italy, they were overtaken by a violent snowstorm, and the policeman was obliged to take off the handcuffs and at tach himself to his prisoner with a rope so as not to lose him in the blinding storm. Finally the policeman fell ex hausted. .-The Italian dragged him across a pass, brought him in safety to a village, and then disappeared, after refusing a reward. Dust Floated Over Ocean. Scientists have explained the great dustfall that surprised southern Eng land in 1903. By a study of the weath er maps -it' was shown that the dust originated on the northwest coast of Africa, and, after riding out In a great cloud, far over the ocean, to the neighborhood of the Azores, it turned to the northeast and was sprinkled over England. It resembled, when swept up, a fine reddish-yellow pow der: Historic Maine Village. A recent maritime disaster calls' at tention to a tiny Maine village of his torical interest.

With, a short and bloody history, Indian hos tility making the locality uninhabitable, the towli site was shortly afterward abandoned. " ' The Main Thing.
