US It Needs No Bush to Sell Good Wine In earlier days it was customary to put out, at taverns, a bush, as a sign that wine was sold there. In those days the country was but thinly settled and there was few newspapers to ad vertise in, so the people depended on each other to hear the news and to pass on the merits of their purchases. Now adays the people read the newspapers and look there, not only to find the passing events, but also to find articles they are in need of, advertised.

Sister Margaret Dolores, of St Lucy's convent, Jersey City, who has been visiting her parents, Mr and Mrs James Lynch of 505 Riverside street, returned home this morning. Tommy Flaherty, John Cullum, John Carroll and Andy Byron, who have been on a fishing trip for the past few days, returned home yester day with a large number of fish, which were nearly all bullheads. William Noonan. clerk ait E. P. Dunphy's grocery store, was injured this morning about 10:30 o'clock while 'riding his bicycle. He was com ing along South Riverside street and was behind a wagon. Another wagon wias at his side and he had no chance of passing the vehicles. When they readied a point about 300 feet from Bank street, one of the vehicles stop ped i short and Willie, who could not stop his wheel so quickly, ran into the team with great force. He was thrown from his wheel and received a cnt on the back of his head, besides being bruised about the arms and face. He was taken to Riverside pharmacy, where his Injuries were dressed. The people along Bank street were delighted last Friday when the sprinkling cart made a visit to that section and they were in hopes that the cart would make a trip there every day, but they are watching in vain each morning for the cart to return. In the other sections of the city indi viduals pay for the sprinkling of thfl streets, but it seems that in this sec tion they are opposed to paying for the sprinkling and they get none of it. There is no excuse for the street in front of the Bank street school not be ing sprinkled couple of times a day. This is the city's property and the cart should sprinkle the -street In front of it. Something sihould be done to have the pavement sprinkled along Bank street from Riverside street to Porter. The clouds of dust that come down Bank street are immense and it is any thing but pleasant to have to pass through seven or eight clouds of it on your way up Bank street. Bank street, from Plume & At- wood's office to the .bridge, is in a very dangerous condition. Large cobble and paving stones are scattered all over the walk and road and there seems to be no indication of the con dition of affairs being improved any After the ditoh on Bank street was filled in, the paving stones were not re placed, but were piled up oh the sidea of the road to he replaced later on, it is said, by the Connecticut Railway & Lighting Co, who are going to put down a double track In about the same place. Everv day makes the state of affairs worse, because none of the stones which have been thrown in the street have been put back in the pile and in about a week more, if some thing is not done to remove what stones there are in the road and keep them in their place. It is expected that the road will be blocked entirely. To make matters worse, in the evening no lights appear on the stones that ar? piled UP in the gutter and this renders it more dangerous to teamsters and oth ers who have occasion to pass along that way. Something should be done to straigihlten out the condition of af fairs before the city has a couple of law suits on Its hands. Better drugs for less money.

Captain Carter of Company A has called a meeting of the members of the company for next Friday night to elect a lieutenant to succeed First Lieutenant Sandland, retired. It is probable that Second Lieutenant Clar ence Bangs will be promoted to first lieutenant. First 'Sergeant Wilcox. It is said, will become second lieutenant, and Corporal Frederick Webster will be promoted to the vacant sergeancy. An examination for the position of corporal in Company G was held last night. The candidates for the position were Attorney Walter E. Monagan, D. F. Lawlor, Peter Gagain and Joseph Delaney: The examining board con sists of Lieutenants Halpln and Halli- nan and Sergeant Lawlor. D. F. Law lor was selected by the board as cor poral. The retirement of Lieutenant Sand land of Company A has given rise again to the report that a new military company will shortly be organised in Waterbury. There is little foundation for this report. In the first place there is no vacancy or no prospective one in the Second regiment; and, secotinly, the organization of a new company in this city would mean the building of a new armory, and the state does not cai'e to do that just now, although a new armory has been badly needed for some time. . But though the outlook for a new local company is not very bright, yet for the past few months several per sons had been interesting themselves in said movement ' because they thought Company B of New Haven was going to get out. It is said that the leaders had secured a full roster of names, all former members of Com pany G and Company A. They had even selected their officers and every thing was ready all right, but there was no need of a new company. Among the men who. It is said, were selected for officers were the follow ing: Captain, William Sandlaod; first lieutenant, C. P. Goss, Jr; seiSseu tenant, Harry Morrison; first sergeant, Mr Germane; second sergeant, Mr Smith: quartermaster sergeant, Eu gene Sullivan. All the above named persons are former officers In Company A except Goss and Sullivan. The lat ter was formerly quartermaster-sergeant of Company G. HOLY JUMPERS WARNED Massachusetts People Do Not TaKe Kindly to Meetings. Putnam, July 26. -David S. Curtis of this, city, leader of the Holy Jump ers, will leave this week for Chicago to consult F. M. Messenger, editor of the Burning Brush and formerly the $12, 000 a year agent of the Grosvenordale mills at Grosvenordale and North Grosvenordale, In regard to religious affairs. Curtis and Fred Maryott of this city, Rev Mr Bridge of Pascoag. R. L, and Martin Van Buren Sliattuck, the meat peddling preacher of South bridge, Mass, were at Southbridge Sun day afternoon. The meeting had to be held in a house on account of the weather. The meeting didn't get as hot as usual, as Southbridge, Stur bridge and Fiskdale citizens have threatened to make it warm for the Holy Jumpers. E. W. Rice, propri etor of the Elms at Sturbridge, and Constable Cooper of Fiskdale are catis ing the most worriment. Meat Ped dler Shattuck said "I'm afraid we are causing an awful stir by our meetings, and have been told that If we persist in holding them in Sturbridge we will be arrested, and If we go to Fiskdale to worship God we will be rotten egged. Mr Rice called me out of bed recently and I went to the uoor and found him boiling. He said Brother Curtis Insulted his house, his guests, and, in fact, every person on the com mons that if Brother Curtis ever again preached from the Sturbridge common lie would be sent home in a box. In Fiskdale they say they will drive us out and rotten-egg us. Constable Charlie Cooper shook his fist in my face and said so. I told Mr Cooper, however, that we'd pay him a visit, and, regardless of his threats, I should wear my best clothes. I'm sure God will look out. for his children and he'll give us protection during the meetings." PLENTY OF WATER NOW. Rolling Over Spillway at Branch and East Mountain Reservoirs. It is not likely that there will be any scarcity of water In Waterbury this season. At tile present time it is rolling over the spillwfty'at the Branch and the East Mountain reservoir, which was dry for some time past, is now filling up and will soon be filled to its full capacity. People who live in the East Mountain district say it was a shame not to have done some cleaning on the basin of the reservoir while the gate chamber was being built and the work could have been carried on to good advantage. The draining of the basin exposed the bot tom and the action of the sun gave vegetation quite a start so that by the time the Kate chamber was finished and Water commenced to be stored there again sedge had grown so high in spots tihat neighbors' cows were commencing to cast longing looks In that direction. In a short time, as soon as the water is available for pub lic use, this grass will have rotted away and become a part of the liquid matter which will enter the homes of thousands of human beings. They may find fault at the objectionable smell and peculiar taste of the article, but that's all the good It will do them. If they don't like it they needn't use It. That's what the mayor said the other evening when Commissioner Jackson found fault about the installa tion of meters on the high service on the ground that such action would be unfair to those who will have to use water from East Mountain and who helped pay for the construction and maintenance of the high and the low services. Anyway, it Is generally ad mitted that the East Mountain and Prospect reservoirs should be cleaned before the wter from these sources is offered for sale, with or without me ters. -' EVERYBODY MITVT DiV LOST BY TWO VOTES. Clergymen Are Not Excused From Paying Military Taxes. The aldermen met last night, Chair man Blakeslee presiding, and all the members being present except Messrs Buck, Holmes and Brophy. The committee on abatements re ported favorably upon a big batcu of petitions asking for abatement of city taxes, nearly all claiming inability to pay. The report also included a num ber of abatements recommended by Collector Thorns, mostly for miiStary taxes. The report was adopted. Ths committee reported that Joseph Loss ing and J. LMLoughlan, who petitioned for abatement of military tax, be given leave to withdraw. The recom mendation was approved. The com mittee returned the prayer of Rev Mr Barnes for abatement of his miltary tax without recommendation. In his communication the clergyman, who is assistant pastor at St John's church, stated that he would pay provided The other ministers do. Alderman Hewitt wanted to know if It were customary to omit the names of clergymen from the enrollment list. Chairman Blakes lee said he didn't think so. Mr Pilling said the board had nothing to do with whether the others paid or not. but he wanted to say a word or two regard ing the system in vogue of making out the military enrollment. He didn't think it fair for the assessors to em ploy outsiders at the expense of the city to look through the city directory and take down a lot of names and put them on the enrollment list, making a point to omit their friends. Mr Pilling moved that the lty attorney oe re quested to submit an opinion as to whether the assessors have a right to do business that way. It was an old custom In use in the selectmen's office and the assessors carried it along. The chair thought it best to dispose of the petition of the Rev Mr Barnes before taking up anvlaing else. Mr Stanley moved that tne petitioner he given leave to withdraw. The motion was carried. Then Mr Pilling put his reso lution and it went through without a hitch. All the recommendations of the der partment of public works, printed here in before were, adopted. A petition of J. O. Kllborn et al for an electric light on upper Cooke street and of an other person for permission to sell goods on the public streets were re ferred to the aldermen. The report of the bureau of assessment regarding the benefits and damages arising from the establishment of a grade and lay out on Oak ahd Hill streets was read and the award of benefits and dam ages confirmed and adopted and the grades and layouts approved.

Began Too Late. The national convention of the An cient Order of Hibernians which was In session at St Louis all last week, brought to a close the stormiest meet ing In its history late Saturday night. The election of officers was a long pro tracted proceeding, possessing especial interest to New Haven because of the candidacy of Rev John Kennedy of Westville for president and of James P. Bree of New Haven for secretary. Father's Kennedy's canvass was be gun at a late period in the session, and met with much favor among the dele gates. Owing to the strong run he was making. Mr Bree concluded to with draw his name In order to further lather Kennedy's interests. The count showed that Father Kennedy had lost the election by only two votes. There is little doubt that had he been announced as a candidate earlier in the week he would have swept fSe con vention. As it is, he remains the logi cal candidate for next year. The officers chosen were: President, James Dolan of Indiana: vice-president, James Sullivan of Philadelphia; secretary, Michael Carroll of Ohio; treasurer, Michael O'Brien of Los An geles, Cal. . Detroit Siiorirfnmn Mtaalns. DETROIT, Mich., July 2(5. John It. Robinson, sporting editor of the De troit Journal, who la own missing since Monday of last week, is thought to have been drowned. His canoe was found beached on the Canadian shore of the river. Mr. Robinson was sergeant major in a Connecticut regi ment during the Cuban war. ' Rev. Father Mornn Dead. NEW YORK, July 26.Rev. James Moran, one of the oldest Roman Catho lic clei'gymen in New York, is dead at his Brooklyn home at the age of eighty. Father Moran was born in England and was the son of Sir Her bert Moran. On his mother's side he was related to Daniel O'Connell, the Irish liberator HUSBAND AND CASH GONE Woodruff and His Wife's Funds Left : Last Thursday. Southington, July 26. William Woodruff and $3,850 of his wife's money have disappeared. Sunday and yesterday Sheriff McCabe searched In vain for the missing husband, who, ac cording to Mrs Woodruff, a bride of less than eight weeks, has the money. Woodruff comes of a good family. He is about 50 years old. A former wife was divorced from him about a year ago. Up to eight years ago he was a conductor on the Northampton division, of which his brother, John Woodruff, was assistant -superinten dent. When his brother died he gave up railroading and came here and bought a hotel, havinga partner who furnished the money. TThe partnership was dissolved in a few months, and, Woodruff subsequently sold the busi ness. For a year or more he has not been engaged In business. On June 1 he left town, leaving with a friend notices for sewrai newspa pers of his marriage to Belle Haynes of New York, the ceremony to take place in Brooklyn. In three weeks he returned with his bride and of late they have lived at the Bradley house. It was rumored that his bride was wealthy and that immediately after the ceremony she ' had deeded to him property from which the income amouted to $105 a month. This ru mor, although Mrs Woodruff had visit ed a sister here and had no appearance of being so fortunate in a worldly way, was generally credited. Instead- $5, 000 w;ould undoubtedly have covered the amout of her real estate and ber pei-sonal estate would not have ex ceeded $2,000. Mrs Woodruff is about 60 years old and has been married four flmes. Woodruff is a persuasive talker and last jveek he imVuced her to self her New York property. It brought about $5,000. Of this it 4s said that she banked $1,000. Woodruff took her to the Four Mile house near Westneld, Mass, and it was there that he disap peared. He went in the night and with him went $3,850. After waiting a day Mrs Woodruff came here and, failing to locate Woodruff, requested assistance. AGAINST INSURANCE CO The Equitable Home Assurance Co of Providence Made Defendant E. J. Garvan had attached, Friday, property in the Hartford office in the Sage-Allen building of the Equitable Home Assurance Co of Providence, pending the suit of James H. Wile of Thompsoaville. The Providence corporation was about to close its Hartford offle? and had its furniture packed, when the attaching officer reached the place. A number of people in Hartford and surrounding towns will be interested in the outcome of the suit. Wile alleges in his complaint that the agent of the company induced him to make the contract by fraudu lent representations. The company, it is understood, will enter a general denial of the charges and defend the action. Probably it will claim, fur ther, that Wile has no contract with It because he has allowed his policy to lapse by not paying the premiums. The difficulty arose out of the build ing and loan feature of the company by which the organization undertakes to furnish its subscribers or policy holders with a lot and loan mouey for building on it In he order of the poli cy, as the funds of the company ac cumulate for this purpose. The plain tiff in the present case complains that bis policy does not mature,
