Elm Tree Degree Team Initiated
Clan of Candidates.
On Thursday av.nlnr flraml ftulitfl
IT. Miles Payne and a party ot twelve
, local Neoplans paid an official visit
I to Elm Tree lodge, N. E. O. P. at
I their lodge room In New Haven.
; Initiation ceremonies were performed
on a class' of candidates by the fa
mous Kim Tree degree team. This
team Is comprised of twelve met as
this is a male lodge, the second lar
gest In the order, nearlng 1,000 mem
bers. The degree master bad given
them excellent military training and
as the different movements were exe
cuted rounds of applause rewarded
them.
An effort Is to be made to bring
this crack team to Waterbury In the
near future and as the grand warden
has expressed his willingness to de
fray expenses, no doubt the local
members have a rare treat in store
for tbem.
In addition to the Waterbury mem.
bers they also entertained the grand
lodge officers as well as Past Grand
Warden D. J. Sullivan of Klverpolnt.
R. I. Lunch was enjoyed and the
trip borne was most mirth provoking
as these members are planning and
enjoying these events at all times.
Friday evening Sheridan lodge, N.
E. O. P. .held an unusually instruct
ive meeting In Columbus ball. Ques
tions which were perplexing the
members of this lodge, the largest in
the city, were taken pro and con and
resulted iu an interesting debate,
thereby bringing the subjects before
the lodge In an Intelligent manner.
All profited by the remarks of War
den William Dinneen and Secretary
Timothy Garren, both members of
long duration. Two applications
were received and one candidate act
ed upon.
They received an Invitation from
Anchor lodge to be with them Novem
ber 19 at Speedwell hall, at which
time the twenty-first anniversary of
the ,order will be fittingly celebrated
by a large class Initiation. This was
graciously accepted and no doubt the
occasion will be a pleasant one. Su
preme and grand officers are expect
ed. Earnest efforts are being made by
Anchor lodge, N. E. O, P., to hold a
successful celebration of the twenty
first anniversary of the order. In re
sponse to a circular received from the
supreme warden, F. T. Pcabody of
Melrose, Mass, they have signified
their willingness to assist by arrang
ing for a class initiation to be held
November 19 at Speedwell ball. The
local lodges have been invited to fur
nish candidates, although the mem
bers of Anchor lodge are striving to
surprise not only their own mem
bers but the members at large. Su
preme and grand officers have been
Invited and no doubt many will ac
cept as Anchor lodge la a royal enter
tainer and the opportunity to be their
guest is always welcomed. All mem
bers of the order are cordially invited
to be present.
On Monday evening of next week
Brass City lodge, N. E. O. P., expect
to entertain the grand lodge officers.
While It was hoped the grand war
den, F. H. Tolles, would be present,
but owing to a public meeting at
Danbury it will be impossible. A
member of the erand flnanra mmmti.
tee,i Brother Oashmore- of New Brit
ain will be heard instead. All mem
bers of the order are cordially invit
ed to attend. .

SLANG OF THE SAILOR
IP I! M
The Lingo That Is Used by Uncle
Sam's Bluejackets.
MANY QUAINT EXPRESSIONS.
The Man-of-war's Man May Be a
- "Snewdigger" or a "Slopar," but He
Uses the Language of Every Other
Sailor.
There Is a language that Is neither
English nor American, down east nor
southern,' western nor Yankee. It Is
Just sailors' Hugo.
No matter viit part of the country
may be the birthplace of a bluejacket
or what bis language at home, sooner
or later be uses tbe language of every
other sailor.
To the civilian a conversation be
tween two bluejackets about his life
on shipboard Is hardly Intelligible. Tbe
other day on the water front two sail
ors were overheard talking, says the
San Francisco BnHetln.
"Ob, he's nothing but a beach comb
er. He was run up for breaking It once
and got sent to thi pie wagon," said
one of tbeui.
"I beard be got six months and a bob
before be come here," replied the other.
A, small boy standing near asked
what all those things meant. Tbe sail
ors were In a good humor and ex
plained. " 'Beach comber,' lad? Why, that's A
fellow wbo bangs around a saloon
ashore and never wants to work.
'Breaking It' is staying overtime on
shore, snd 'run up' Is brought to tbe
mast for offenses. The 'pie wagon' Is
the place where they put prisoners, and
slz months and a bob' Is sentenced to
six months In prison snd given a dis
honorable discharge."
There are many other terms and ex
pressions that do not show tbelr mean
ing on tbe surface.
A "rookie" Is a recruit A'man who
"ships over" enlists again. A man who
Is on tbe report for mast call Is "down
for a chance." Canned beef is known
as "canned .Willie," and a bottle' Of
liquor Is, a "dog." All things lost on
shipboard are put In a room called tbe
"lucky bag." An honorable discbarge
is "a big ticket," and desertion by a
sailor Is "Jumped." When the mall ar
rives on board and is ready for distri
bution "mallo" is the cry which carries
the news. A ship's carpenter is called
"chips,", a coppersmith "coppers," a
blacksmith "blacky" and the chief of
the engineering department "the chief."
When a ship Is traveling st sea it is
"seagoing," and If It harries It is "mak
ing knots." A- prison on shore is a
"stone frigate." When a man Is dis
rated to a lower rating be is "busted;"
when be deserts and voluntarily gives
himself up within a period of six
months be Is a straggler; when be is
sitting next tbe dealer In a friendly
game of "draw" be is "under tbe
gun;" when he is continually quoting
tbe naval regulations he has "swallow
ed tbe blue book," and when he thinks
be knows more about the blue book
than the captaln,he Is a "sea lawyer."
"Pipe downf ' means In American
slang "shut np." "Put In his oar" is
"butt In." "Shove oft, Jack," Is a hint
to move on. When a man Is dishon
orably discharged he gets a "straight
kick." A sailor who draws more pay
"draws more water." One who talks
too much "Blows off at a low pressure."
Wednesday afternoon, when tbe crew
overhaul their clothing, is "rope yard
Sunday." Any part of the United
States Is called "God's country," and
tbe man from tbe eastern coast is a
nowdlgger," while bis brother tar
from the west Is called "sloper." The
duty .of calling the men In the morning
falls to the master at arms, and he
says "show a leg" or "rise up and
shine." When a man has had no
night watch and gets up In the morn
ing with a good appetite It Is "all
night In and beans for breakfast."
One of the more familiar sea terms
is "caught a crab," meaning caught an
oar In the water. When a sailor has
several enlistments to his credit he is
called "a sea dog" or "an old salt."
A gentle hint from one sailor to an
other that he does not believe some
thing which is being told to him is "tell
it to a marine." To re-enllst Is to
"slip over," and when more than half
the enlistment Is in a sailor is "going
downhill."

A new Idea In Hibernlanism will
be Inaugurated In Waterbury to-morrow
In A. O. H. hall by John P.
Sheehan, state secretary 'of the order
This idea will take shape in a Juvenile
division of boys between the ages ot
10 and 16. At 3 o'clock the inaugu
ration will take place and it is ex
pected that the parents of the boys
wbo are to Join will be on hand.
Boys who are not accompanied by
their parents most have their writ
ten consent to become a member ot
this popular and widespread organ
ization. -
The board of aldermen will meet
Monday night when It Is likely some
sctlon will be taken on the water
question. In case it should be de
cided to build a new dam at the
Branch to an elevation of 90 feet it
would take about three years before
it would be ready for use,, and for
this and other reasons many say It
would be better to plan for the 90
foot dam but stop at a height of 50
feet and complete it later on. This
would give relief sooner than It can
be had by completing the Job at once
and besides a fifty foot dam would
meet the requirements of the city for
about five years and could be put up
for about half a million dollars. In
case this should be done the city
would save the interest on the other
half million dollars for Ave or six
years. - " ' ' ' : - ..
THE . MUSIC HATCH. ;
And the Great Things That He MIssm
In His Defect.
What a puKsle music most be to
those unfortunate people, stricken wlti
spiritual cecity, to whom tbt art la na
more than so much sound and fnry, -signifying
nothing! They know that
to others it constitutes a whole world
of experience, yet are themselves ex
cluded from that world by so in
superable barrier. They must take It
on faith, as tbe color blind must tska
ihm Hlnhiiw an1 th nil
If tbey are honest with themselves
they will admit and lament this de
fect of sense, accepting tbe unavoida
ble, gaslng wistfully at the walls that
separate them from a realm of whose
glories tbey know from trustworthy
report, but into1 which they may not
enter. Sometimes, says tbe Dial, they
are not honest with themselves, aver
ring tbe very existence of the realm
to be a fable and those who claim lis
franchise to be-self deluded, finding
realities in what are but vain imagin
ings. Tbey allow music to be sound
more or less agreeable, bnt they stout
ly deny, although in tbe face of an
overwhelming mass of testimony, that
It has auy spirltna I meaning.
The province of music Is tbe entire
emotional and spiritual life, and tbe In
tellect, although a necessary philosoph
ical concept, Is no more to be canght by
Itself than those equally necessary ab-'
stractlons, the iterfect pendulum and)
the ecouoinic man. Scleuce comes near
est to being pure when it takes the
mathematical form, bnt we cannot for
get Kepler's spiritual exaltation in con
templation of his laws of planetary mo
tion, and we may also recall what Abt
Vogler thought about tbe whole mat-ter-
Thc rest rosy reason and weleome. '
'Til we musicians know.
What are "the substantial of life?"
Science is certainly one of tbem, but '
there are at least three others art, eth
ics and religion and if we allow that
me one m euiy uere ana mere roucnea
with emotion tbe other three are surely
suffused wltb It through and through.
And the relation of music to all three
of them as surely needs no argument In
its proof, for music is itself an art. It
Is a potent influence upon character,
and it is of tbe very essence of religion.
But, being as much more than sound
as poetry Is more than words printed
in black Ink upon white paper, the
character of music as an art is beyond
cavil, and any likening of its effect to
that of food npoh the palate Is supreme
ly ridiculous. There are many, Indeed,
who would go so far as to call It tbe
highest of the -arts, holding with Pater
that every art "constantly aspires to
ward tbe condition of music," which la
"the true type or measure of perfected)
art."
' If the philosophers are right when
tbey urge that sympathy is the founda
tion of tbe moral life, what mere re

What is gluten? Well, spend ten
minutes and find out not all about it,
but something about It Obtain
heaping tablespoonful of white flour.
Add a little water to it in a saucer and
dough it into a compact ball. Turn
on the tap In tbe sink and let the wa
ter drip from your bands as you roll
the ball between your palms. The ball
will grow less and less, snd the water
will be white witb starch cells held is
suspension. In ten minutes, more or
less, the water will ran clean and
clear and you appear to have a nodnle
of yellow, firm, vegetable gum, which
you are tempted to call "pure" gluten. '
Become a gum chewer for once and
keep a-cbewing for a couple of hours.
