Credit Co. 1 L 15 PHOENIX AVE., KHsH i r The Muttatuck Rod and Gun club held Its annuil meeting at The Elton last night. The dining room was decorated with a profusion of ever greens and the walls were hung with all kinds of game, so that one would think the feast was being held in the fastness of the woods after a very successful day's hunting. Dr B. R. Patzold, chairman 1 of the associa tion, called the meeting to order, and the Rev John ' N. Lewis offered nraver. The menu was all that could have been desired. C. A. Col ley acted as toastmaster, and, as usual, be made a hit. Said he: "At the beginning of the verbal festivities of the evening, impressed by the importance of the occasion, I confess that I feel much as did a local orator In Vermont a few years ago, who was called upon to make a speech at the opening of an agricul tural fair. His peroration was as follows: 'Fellow citizens: There have been three great days in the history of the world. The first was when the morning stars sang to gether, and all the sons of earth shouted aloud the praises of God. The second was -when Columbus sailed on his great voyage for the discovery of a new world. But the third and greatest of these, my fel low citizens, is to-day! to-day, the dav of the opening of the Windsor county agricultural fair.' "Well, we are all of us here again among others of note, Game Warden Walirer. Prosecutor Joe O'Neill, and the criminal. Judge Cole. I will be the 1ury who hasn't read the news' papers, and has formed no opinion whatever in regard to the merits of the case. The verdict of the jury is not always conclusive, however, and once I heard of a judge who said to the clerk of the court: 'It is the order of this court that the verdict be set aside.' And then he said to the jury, 'I want you to understand gentlemen, that in this court it re auires the decision of thirteen men to steal a man s farm.' "The annual dinner of this associ ation is always an event in Water bury, because it is the best of a semi- nublic character, given at The Elton during the winter. You gentlemen get the birds, and about the only way to get them favorably known to the law is to shoot them. Early in the season it was a question with me whether to buy a bird, or buy a li cense to shoot one. I knew, of course, that a bird In the hand is worth two in the bush, and this year owine to the scarcity of game, the average is probably much higher enjoyed the bird to-night, however although you raised the price to $3 per. They tell the story of a man who went down to the city to meet a friend who had just landed from Ireland. Knowing the convivial habits of the new comer, he said to him: 'Now, Pat, remember you can't drink all the whiskey in New York.' The next day. Pat began the conquest down to the east Aide where he paid 5 cents a glass. A little further up town he paid 10 cents; at Union square 15 cents, and in upper Broadway 20 cents. His friend said to him: 'I told you, Pat, that you couldn't drink all tho whis key In New York,' and Pat replied, 'Perhaps I can't; but, begorra, 1 com pelled thim to raise the price. Now that the day of Thanksgiving is ap proaching, It is well to remember that as an organization we have much to be grateful for. Our popu lar member, Brother Nlmrod Tem pleton, who never missed a bird, or lost a fish, has been elected a mem ber of the board of aldermen, where he may continue to hunt and fish, even after the law is on again for the rest of us. In the recent elec tion many of his associates fell by the way. but, not he. "'Johnny,' said a Sunday school teacher to her pupil, 'what does the story of Jonah and the whale teach us?' And Johnny replied, 'ft teaches us, mam, that you can't keep a good man down. "But I must not allow myself to . forget that I am not the one to make 1 the speeches this evening, that it is my duty to carve and wait upon table i In a way, a sort of go between, as- j sisting you to the enjoyment of the: good things that are to follow. You j have discovered that the gentlemen I who will address you are many of ' them lawyers. When Peter the Great ! visited England, be discovered In i Westminster hall many lawyers,! which led him to remark that In all j h!s dominions there were but two lawyers, and that he proposed to goi home and hang one of them. There J is present to-night a reverend gentle- j man, I will noi embarasa him by calling his name, whose opinion of! lawyers la not as flattering as it i might be. I warn him, however, that 1 animadversions cast upon the profes-! t'on will not be tolerated. That was a long word, and reminds me of the j story of the schoolmaster tn Ireland who was oot as learned as he might ' have been. One morning a lanky ! youth wandered up to the desk and ' Inquired of his teacher the meaning: of a certain long word. 'OTtlley,' ; said the teacher, 'you may skip that word whenever you come to If, It ; was the name of a very wild, and dangerous animal to be found only In 5 foreign parti.and you and I will never j meet It' j "Every clergyman should be a fish ; erman.

Can you beat this for a fish story?

It was a chub sucker, and less than six Inches long. Because of the quality, and not because of the size thereof, I threw it into the water, to the great disap pointment of the reverend gentleman who will now address you. Give him a welcome." "It Is the pleasure of this associa tion that I present to you this cherry, which has not been contaminated by the presence of the cocktail. "The cherry is an emblem of truth, for is it not true that the great Wash ington, the father of his country, es tablished his reputation for truth and veracity by the story of the hatchet and the cherry tree? It is said that truth lies at the bottom of a well. Nay, not so. It lies at the bottom of the cocktail; for it is the cocktail that releases the tongues of men, thereby enforcing the truth which would be otherwise supprest. Take it my dear sir, in all its virgin purity, with the best wishes of the members of this club for your future happiness and prosperity." Other speakers were the Rev Dr Haywood, D. C.

Says if Hidden Money Can Be Brought Out Trouble Will End. Washington, Nov. 22. Confident that the cure for existing financial ills and their recurrence lies in a plan of gov ernment guarantee of deposits in na tional banks, William J. Bryan arrived In Washington. He attributes the pres ent situation to lack of depositors' con fidence in bnuks. This fright would not prevail, be thinks, if they were certain the government would protect them against loss. Mr. Bryan said: "I do not know what the effect of the new bond Issue will be, but It seems to me that the relief ought to come from the other direction. Plans so far have been intended to furnish government money to the banks, whoreas the most important thing now is to restore confidence in bank depos itors and thus not only prevent with drawals, but secure deposits. While the banks are good'and while the de positors are not justified In being frightened, some depositors are unrea sonable, and their timidity may embar rass tVe banks. If the money that being hidden and hoarded can be brought back into circulation, the pres ent stringency will disappear at once. It does no good to supply money from the treasury if an equs-1 or a greater amount is drawn out by depositors." Brownsville Affair Is Revived. New York, Nov. 22. The Browns ville episode was revived by the Re publican county committee at Its meet ing In the Murray Hill lyceum for the purpose apparently of attacking Presi dent Roosevelt. A resolution Introduced ty Gilchrist Stewart, leader of the col ored Republicans of the Thirteenth as sembly district, led to a long and bit ter debate, in which .strictures were freely passed on the president's action In that matter. The resolution was finally laid on the table by an over whelming vote yy.nwUjpgHMM.t"PfiWy Sacs: i'iiri MEN'S OVERCOATS $12.00. $15.00, 18.00, $20.00, $22.00, $25.00.
