OLD RESIDENTS RE NEWING ACQUAINTANCES Several old time Waterbury people who now work In other places have come back to their native town to spend the Fourth of July, and notwith standing all the talk about a big dem onstration here Monday a large num ber of citizens who live in Waterbury the year round will renew former ac quaintances at the old homesteads in various parts of the New England states. This shows that no matter how much one may become attached to new surroundings the first love never be comes wholly wiped out and on special occasions such as Independence day, Christmas and the day when the soul is about to separate from the bodyand return to its Maker, the heart sigh's for a glimpse of the scenes where it first felt the happiness of home and the ten der touch of a mother's hand. ''Say," remarked a former resident of "Water bury to-day to a Democrat reporter, as he Hurried along Grand street en route to the parental roof after an absence of some years, "I noticed coming in the cars that Pine hill still stands h th" same spot. Yes, sir, and you. cannot find a nicer place in this eoiintry, no matter where you go." There was a good deal of handshaking about town during the day and in a few instf. ices women who on other days walk with considerable difficulty stepped along with their sons and daughters from the railroad cars with an elasticity of step that would do justice to that of graduates of the High school. There's nothing that can vmake a mother move about with such agility as the presence of a son or daughter home for the holi days. ' j DRUG STORES WILL BE OPEN Some months ago the proprietors of drug stores in the city made an agree, ment to keep their stores closed from 1 to 2 o'clock on Sunday afternoons. The agreement was well kept by all the druggists for several months, but gradually some druggists on the out skirts of the city began to forget about it and to keep their stores open. There was considerable talk about these vio lations of the agreement but nothing was done about the matter. Last Sun day three stores in the center of the city kept open. They were G-. Leslie Dexter & Co, J. W. Cone and J. F. Duncan. Mr Duncan states that he kept open because he had been given to understand that all the drugstores In the center were open. He Is most willing to keep his store closed for one hour on Sundays. When the oth er druggists heard that three more druggists had violated the agreement there was much indignation and con siderable talk and several conferences were held. As a result of these con ferences Secretary Thomas Casey of the Waterbury Pharmaceutical asso ciation has sent a notice to evtry druggist in the city that the areement to close their stores from 1 to 2 o'clock on Sunday afternoons is no longer binding. Druggists will be free to do as they please to open or close. It is possible that one or two drug stores in the center of the city .will close? for one hour, but the majority wltl remain open.

John McMahon, who said his home is in Stamford, told his story in such a manner to Judge Peasley in the city court to-day that he was at first or dered to be held until Monday under a bond of $25; but McMahon, presuming that the delay was intended to make inquiries about him, said he would take his medicine now and get through with it rather than have his folks hear about his disgrace. He at first saui his wife and two children were staying with his brother in Litchfield, and a few moments after he said his brother was dead, and it was with his step brother they were staying. He also denied having ever been arrested be fore or that he was arrested here about a year ago, or that he told Officer Dun phy, who arrested him, that he board ed on Railroad Hill street. He said he was never before in Waterbury. Officer Dunphy found him walking on the tracks south of the Naugatuck depot and as he was under the influ ence of drink he took him into custody for safety. McMahon had the appear ance and the demeanor of a rounder. Judge Peasley granted his request about giving him his medicine by fin ing him $5 and costs, giving him the alternative of working it out at Brook side. Thomas McNeary was committed for thirty days to the same institution. Louis Launier was found asleep in the postoffice this morning about 2 o'clock. He was put on sixty days' probation to pay a fine of $5 and costs. BRONSON LIBRARY. Bodley Club Service New BooKs for July, 1904.

NorwalK Placard Calls Butcber a Dis ciple of Leutgert "Warning to South Norwalk citi zens: Look out for your children. Monster Wurstmaker, disciple of Luet gert, who brought grief to many happy families in this city, who but secretly Is talked of, is an originator of chil dren kidnapping stories, is found at last living in your virtuous city, 76 N. M. street, in his den. Remember there is no justice for you, even for you, could you capture him in his murder ous act. "This criminal is protected by Free Masons. "GRIEF STRICKEN MOTHERS OF NEW YORK." This startling announcement is in the ands of the South Norwalk police. It is directed at one of South Norwalk's butchers Fred Karl, of North Main street. The "76 N. M.." found in the missive, refers to the shop of Mr Karl on North Main street. Several months ago Mr Karl, out of sympathy for the supposed writer of this poster, took him in and boarded him at his own home in North Main street. The fellow, whose mind is somewhat unbalanced, had been living on his brother's farm in Westpo-t. Karl knew the brother quite well "and invited this man to live with him. Soon after he arrived in South Nor walk trouble began. Occasionally dur ing a rush at the market the man would help Mr Karl. Soon he demanded $1 a day for his services; at times he would argue with Mr Karl when cus tomers were in the store until the situ ation became unbearable. Mr Karl finally decided to harbor him no longer and refused to take care of him. Some time later Karl received postal cards threatening himself with all kinds of maltreatment. He received quite a number of these. Yesterday he received through the mail the threat printed above. The police are on the track of the writer, and expect to have him in cus tody in a few days. ChiefVollmer be lieves the man is harmless. He thinks his mind is unbalanced. Mr Karl is not greatly frightened over the matter. He is anxious, however, to have the fellow caught and sent off to some asylum. FOURTH OF JULY. How it Will be Celebrated FireworKs Display Club and Society Outings. Everybody is very much interested in the display of fireworks which will be held here on the evening of the Fourth of July, and with a view to getting good points from which to take It in residents of the Watertown road, j Morningside, upper North Willow: street and other places in that district are having many callers, and by the time the first shot is fired standing room will be at a premium in that part of the town. The exhibition will be conducted under the personal supervis ion of three skillful men, representing the Detwiller & Street Fireworks Manufacturing Co of New York, where the stock was purchased. If the weath er should be rainy or foggy the exhibi tion will not take place as acmounced, but will be adjourned; until Tuesday night or some other time when, the weather conditions will be favorable. he committee from the Waterbury Business Men's association who col lected the funds and at the same time kept up a considerable amount of en thusiasm in the public mind, deserves great credit forlts efforts It was a big undertaking, but the committee was equal to it and none of them felt that he could afford to take a breath ing spell until he saw the powder and ball on the ground and ready for use, a consolation which was enjoyed early this forenoon. But the committee will not be through until the last gun has been fired and. the debris cleared away, so that In many respects the tougnest part of the work is still ahead .of tfiem. Chief Egan will have the entire police force on oleck and the best of order will be maintained. That the older people of the city may assist the vounsr folks in celebratine the glorious Fourth and in displaying their patriotism by shooting off cannon and firecrackers and blank cartridges and many other things, all the factories and stores and offices will be closed on the national holiday. All the people will be given a chance to celebrate the Fourth in whatever manner they may desire. While many will leave the city for the day, the majority of the people will do their celebrating at home. Many of the people who will leave the city will return home earlier than in former years that they may witness the display of fireworks. For the stayers at home the attrac tions are about as numerous as in former years. There 'will be special attractions at Forest park, Belleview lake and Boulder grove. People can enjoy a trolley ride to these pleasure resorts, take a stroll in the groves or a row on the lake, or they may attend the vaudeville performance. '. " If they do not care to visit the parks, they can attend the picnic and games which will be held at the Driving park on Monday afternoon by the South End Social club in connection with races by the Waterbury Driving association. A strong bill is offered. Golf enthusiasts will spend much of the day at the links, for an unusually attractive program has been arranged for that day. Lovers of base ball will have to be contested with witnessing games between teams of a minor na ture or lse go out of town and see a good, live game. A number of rooters will accompany the Waterbury base ball team to Northampton, Mass, where it will play two games. - Thousands of Waterburians will not spend the day in the city. To-day and to-morrow and Monday the trains on all the lines will be crowded with peo ple going away to the country, sea shore or city. Hundreds will go to New Haven and the White City on the annual excursion of the Brooklyn Ath letic club, while nearly as many more will go on the.annual excursion of the Bridgeport Steamboat Co to New York. A number of Waterburians will visit Naugatuck in the morning to witness the big parade in which many societies, bands and drum corps will take part. The clerks and carriers at the post office will work only a half day. The office will be closed at noon. There will be no evening collection. MAY GO TO NAUGATUCK. Expected Assignment for Rev. John J. McCabe. Announcement is waited with inter est of Rev John J. McCabe's first as signment under Bishop Tiemey, which will be made in a few days. Father McCabe is at present In New Britain visiting relatives. It is rumored that Father McCabe will be made curate to Rev James Sheridan of Naugatuck. There is a large Polish population in the Nauga tuck valley, and Father McCabe's training has been of work in this field. POLITICAL POINTERS. WAS PAID IN ADVANCE. To win a wager of $10 Harry Finley. a waiter who has been employed at a Church street lunch room, New Haven, jumped off the top deck of the Rich ard Peck into the Thames river. He was given the money before he jumped and went overboard with it in his mouth. The police cutter came alongside and took him out of the wa ter with the intention of arresting him for attempting, suicide, but after ex planations he was put aboard, the Peck. John M. Quinn, a Tammany orato, will be the principal speaker at the rally which the New Haven members of the democratic state committee will hold at Music hall on the Fourth of July. An ex-mayor of Stamford is authori ty for the belief that in case Cleveland should happen to be nominated Homer i S. Cunimings would support Roosevelt. jir Cummings continues to nurse, a strong hatred for the ex-prtesident About the only proposition toward which Mr Cummings and ' Alexander Troup hold harmonious opinions Is Cleveland. The Bristol Press warmly supports the boom of ex-Senator A. J. Muzzy of that town for state comptroller. "Bris tol," if saj-s in the course of an extend ed article, "would indeed be glad to furnish the next state comptroller, and we believe that in offering Mr Muzzy for that office we present a candidate qualified in every way to perform the duties and render a faithful steward ship to the people. It is pleasing also to note that none deny that practically the third largest town in the county should be recognized. The county has furnished eight governors, eight lieutenant-governors and four other state officers In the past fifty years.- Hart ford city having furnished all but one of the governors, all the lieutenant-governors and one other state official, a total of sixteen out of the twenty, or 80 per cent of the county's large quota,"
