At a church function ach person was required to wear conspicuously upon his or her clothing some pictorial or other device that should represent in "rebus" form the title of any well known book, and all the others were to guess at the book Intended. ' ' "Paradise Lost," represented by a card upon - which Are dice had been pasted, and from which two had evi dently dropped or been removed, was easily guessed. . "Hard Times" was no puzzle. Neither was it hard to recog nize "A Fair of Blue Eyes," "Innocents Abroad," "Vanity Fair" nor "Uncle Tom's Cabin" In spite of the pictorial, disguises. One of the guests, however, had a poser. Attacneu to one 01 tne Dutions e Inscription. "Ter." iVery one at last gave it. up and asked for. the solution. ... ."Why,, that's easy," be said.

"It's the last syllable of Chester, Lan caster, Gloucester, Chichester and Ex eter. We protestr ' "Well," be said, "I won't insist Try this one." - He turned the card ever. It was in scribed on the other side with these three letters, "Ans." After a severe mental straggle every body gave this up also. "That ought not to .puzxle you." be said. "It's 'The Last of the Mohl ttnn.' . :,. . . - . ne got the firixe. ' , Try a Democrat Wanu HERBERT AND COYD Coofoefc. Two Brlllliol Pro dociloos at Ibe BockloQhaio. The Waterbury Oratorio society, assisted by a corps of soloists and the Victor Herbert orchestra, sang "Faust" at the ' Buckingham Music ball last evening, and the Oounod opera made a decided impression on the unusually large audience which filled the hall . The rendition of the various scenes was so excellent that the mem bers of the society and especially their conductor, George E. Boyd, bad every, reason to feel proud . of the night's work. Not only was the event a social and musical triumph but it was also a financial success which augurs well for similar pro ductions for this city in the near fu- VICTOR ture. The singing of "Fauet" by such a number of celebrated soloists, con sidering the apathetical manner in which the people of this city have regarded recent musical events, was an .Immense financial venture for the Oratorio society. But the members were confident they would receive the support of the people of Waterbury In view of the standard of the pro gramme offered. Right well did they work and right well were they re warded. It was superior to any mu sical event ever given in this city. Henrl'G. Scott, who sang Mephisto- pheles, has a remarkably good bass voice, which with his dramatic ap pearance aids him materially In win ning an audience. His . interpreta tion of the role was well nigh perfect Mme Stoddart (Marguerita) ren dered well the soprano parts. She has not done much singing in the east but is well known in the west. Miss Margaret Keyes, the contral to sang Siebel and Martha and her vocal ability was not long In showing Itself. Daniel Beddoe, the, tenor, was an Ideal Faust and won his. way tc the hearts of his listeners by his pleasing manner and with his beau tiful and strong tenor voice. Henrv H. Smith, a young man from Meriden, had the role of Wag- ner. Frederick S. Weld of New Haven an old favorite of Waterburlans sang Valentine, and the baritone was in excellent voice. Mr Weld has im proved wonderfully since his first apeparance in this city and seems to be better on each successive appear ance. He made a very iavoraDie showing last evening, his , several solos being the gems or tne opera. The Herbert . orchestra with Mr Boyd leading was immense .and its playing was in keeping with the ad mirable effort made on previous ap pearances. . One scene of the opera, the church scene, was sung to the accompani ment of the piano as the organ at the last moment was discovered not in tune with the orchestra instruments Organist R. A. Smith made the scent effective with the piano but not nearly as much so as if it had been rendered on the organ. The singing of the chorus was something long to be remembered There was volume and melody, and perhaps never has better work been done In Waterbury. While all the choruses were well rendered, the "Soldiers' Chorus" took the audience by storm, and the applause was so continuous that the chorus was re paeted. -' The audience at the concert given (n the afternoon by the Herbert or chestra assisted by Mme Stoddart, was not large but very appreciative. It was a programme such as only Herbert himself can arrange and render. It was entrancing music with the following numbers: Overture "II Guarany" ..... Gomex a. Slavic dance ". . . . . . . . '. . . .Dvorak b. Entre acte i.. . .Offenbach From "Les Contes D'Hoffmann." c. "Dance of the Hours". .Ponchlelll From"Gloconda" Aria "Chere Nult". . . Bachelot Miss Marie Stoddart.

Frank Allen of Woodbury came near being killed late last evening on West Main street. He was on his way home when his team got mixed up with a trolley car and the horses ran away and kept going un til somebody caught them on the Watertown road. Mr Allen was thrown from his team and lay where he fell without moving a muscle so that those who saw him though he was killed outright. He was picked up and removed to the Waterbury hospital where it was found that while he was badly shaken up his injuries are not necessarily serious, The horses were cared for at one of the barns and word was sent to the injured man's family. The county commissioners con; pleted their two days' work here this afternoon, receiving from -all but a very few of the liquor dealers their license fee for the ensuing year. The total amounts to about 170,000. Of this sum all but 15 per cent goes to the city, while 10 of that 15 per cent goes to the county and the other to the police pension fund. Under the old system of town and city gov' ernment this money would go entire ly to the maintenance of town roads and bridges, but under the present system it is turned into the general city fund along with the money raised by taxation on property, and is in turn paid out in wages to city laborers, policemen,, firemen, school teachers and the other city officials. as well as for new work In the clty'6 development and the maintenance ot the schools. Cases of diphtheria are developing at an alarming rate in this city, and it looks as though an epidemic of the disease would occur if its spread is not Boon stopped. Tnree new cases were reported to the charity department to-day, while two of tho pupils of the Margaret Croft school were stricken with the disease the past twenty-four hours. Another one of the pupils of the Walsh school was reported as having the disease to-day. On Fuller street there is said to be two cases within half a dozen houses. Although the author ities say none of the cases is serious nevertheless all the schools will In all probabiliyt be thoroughly fumi gated during the Thanksgiving va cation. There must be between twenty-five and thirty cases in the city at present and during the past week, they have been developing fast. . Stephen W. Wllby, principal of the high school, entertained an apprecia tive audience last night at a public meeting held under the auspices of Mulcahy council, K. ot C, at Colum bus hall. Mr Wllby spoke for over an hour during which time he fol lowed the subject Of his sketch from a boy ot 10 years in the old world to the man of mature years in Canada, where he had hewn out for himself an enduring place among the people of that country, especially those fa miliar with the Canadian dialect, in which tongue Dr Drummond wrote some of his best poems and essays. The speaker read several of Dr Drum mond's poems in a manner which showed that he knew his subject thoroughly and possessed a knowl edge ot Canadian dialect rarely found anywhere outside the native born Canadian. His recital of "Lit tle Baptiste" was very pathetic and was probably the best number on the list. But where all are in the su perlative degree there Is no need of individual mention, and the general opinion after Mr Wllby had got through was that It should have been heard by a large audience and it It likely that he will be requested to re peat it some evening before long. The exercises included a piano' solo by Charles Kemp and a-bass solo by James Carroll. Lallier's orchestra furnished music.: The meeting was presided over by James M. Lynch.
