The venerable Dr. McGonigle as he sat in the Baptist church yesterday, presented to the GAZETTE scribe a most perfect and ideal likeness of pictures of the great philosopher, statesman and printer, Benjamin Franklin. The dangerous illness of Rev. Dr Noble's daughter at Sah Francisco, which has been such a burden of anxiety and sorrow to him, has been turned into joy by the news that she is so far recovered that her husband will start for Norwalk with her on Monday next. Mr. John Rodemeyer has withdrawn entirely from the bright little DAILY GAZETTE and is considering a very flattering offer from one of the leading Boston dailies.—[Hour. A more capable "all around" newspaper man does not exist and the GAZETTE wishes for him all manner of success in any field he may occupy. The first anniversary meeting of the "King's Daughters and King's Sons" will be held in the Congregational Chapel on Saturday afternoon next, at three o'clock.

A play announced as a "cyclonic comedy combine," entitled "Out of Sight," will occupy the boards of the Opera House, April 2. The piece comes here with the unanimous approval of the press in the cities wherein it has been presented. It is said to contain all the elements of popularity, and its aim is to suit the tastes of all. One of the special features offered is the model scene from the "Clemenceau Case." The furore this scene created in New York will be remembered as unprecedented, and a great deal of curiosity has been aroused in it. - !..• t- . Chess Magician. An interesting chess contest was Avit-nessed on Saturday afternoon in the rooms of the Norwalk club, which has become one of the chief topics of the hour. Mr. Eccles of the New York Rubber company, whose fame as a chess player is accompanied with that of being something of a wizard with the kings, castles,knights, etc., of the chess board, played three games simultaneously with Mr. Lees, of Westport, Mr. Reed of the Stamford National Bank, and Dr. A. H. Baldwin of this place. This triangular contest of science and skill was of exceptional interest, and resulted as follows: Mr. Eccles defeated Mr. Reed, but was defeated by Mr. Lees, and the game with Dr. Baldwin resulted in a draw. It is understood that Mr. Eccles will be at the rooms of the Norwalk club again this evening, which will insure a large attendance. —It. G. Hanford has a fine supply of flowers for Wednesday. It EflSTERJIDE. How It Was Observed Yesterday in the Norwalk Churches. THE AIR LADEN WITH THE SWEET PERFUME OF THE LILY AND THE ROSE. Exceptionally Excellent Musical Programmes. Delightful Easter Weather and Large Congrer; gations. Yesterday, Easter Sunday, was celebrated in all our churches with unusual ceremony and we doubt if ever before there has been so large an attendance at all of Norwalk's churches. While this religious festival is always observed in most churches, yesterday's services seem to have exceeded in solos, chants and choruses and in floral decorations, anything ever so generally attempted here before. Through all the ages since the Christian era, wherever the story of the crucified and risen Redeemer is known throughout the world, Easter stirs the religious heart of Christendom more widely and tenderly than any other religious festival. Religious denominations that once held aloof from its special observance as superstitious mummeries, now join in celebrating the festival of the Resurrection. Even more significant is the place of reverent honor given to Easter Sunday by poets, artists and the public press. Every year Easter flowers are more plentiful, Easter songs more nearly universal, Easter sermons more often the rule and more seldom the exception, all showing an increasing catholicity and liberality of Christian sentiment and a growing disposition to make public worship gladsome. AT THE METHODIST, Dr. Van Alstyne delivered an able and impressive discourse suited to the occasion. His pulpit and the chancel were bedecked with flowers and exotic plants. A conspicuous central piece was an orange tree in full bud and bloom, the seed of which was brought from Florida some years since and planted ah!, grown here. The musical features were of unusual excellence and embraced the following selections: MORNING SERVICE. Organ Prelude—Offertoire in E flat, Batiste Jubilate, Schilling Old Hundred Franc Psalm xvi, Gloria Patri, Arr. from Mass by Mazzinghi Hymn 230, "The Day of Resurrection," Mason Anthem, "Christ our Passover," Williams Offertory, "Pastoral Movement," Handel Solo, "Lift your glad voices," Holden Hymn 233, "The morning kindles all the sky." Easter Anthem, "Par flames the Easter Morn." Hymn 248—Coronation, Holden Organ Postlude, Hallelujah Chorus, Handel The choir—Miss Ella J. Byxbee, Mrs. P. S. Lyon Jr., Miss Edith Comstock, sopranos ; C. W. Hoyt, H. B. Wigliam, H.P. Price,tenors; Miss Annie Staab, Mrs. J. P. Francis, Miss Annie Newcomb, contraltos; W. L. Warren, F. Comstock, F. Vail, bassos ; Prof. N. K. Ferris, organist; H. P. Price, director. AT THE FIRST BAPTIST, Rev. Frank Bobbins the new pastor, preached an earnest discourse appropriate to the occasion. The morning service was opened by singing Gloria in Excelsis by the quartette choir, then grand old Antioch—"Joy to the World " etc. The altar was adorned with palms and lilies. 'Christ is Risen," and "All hail the power of Jesus' Name'' were also rendered by the choir. An Easter offering was taken up to meet a church debt, amounting in all to over $200. The choir was composed of Dr. McGonegal, M. Paddock, with his son at the organ, Mrs. Miller and Miss Mead. In the evening the exercises partook of a twofold character, being a Sunday-school concert and the mission question box. The little ones did the cause credit, both in talent and spirit. The attendance was, as in the morning, very large and all retired thinking it one of the most enjoyable of Easter Sabbaths. The following is the programme as rendered : Cornet solo—"The Lost Chord." Alleluias-Choir. llecitation—'Easter" Master Harry Davis Singing—"He is Risen" Sunday-school Recitation—"If You Please"Clifford Sherwood Recitation—"Wanted" Edith Smith Recitation—"A Warning," Edna Grumman Recitation—"The Drunkard's Dream," Nellie Hodshon. Singing—"I think when I read that sweet story of old," Members of Primary Class Recitation—A Fable Miss Runnel Yocal duett—"Father we thank Thee," Misses Sherwood and Grumman Recitation—"Nellie's Letter," Maud Whitney Recitation—"If I were a sunbeam "L.Sherwood Singing—"All Hail the bright morning,"School Reading, Ada Leach Recitation, Miss Lyon Missionary Question Box. Appeal on behalf of Missions, Pastor Offertory—"Fill the fount with roses." Choir AT THE CONGREGATIONAL, the Easter morning service was very largely attended. "Dr. Noble preached, his subject being "The Risen Christ, the Hope of the World." The church was decorated with beautiful flowers,4' whose voiceless lips were also living preachers.'' In the evening an Easter Plraise Service was held, which was an occasion of much interest, many children of the Sunday-school taking part. The carols sung by the choir and school were unusually well rendered, while in a most interesting address Dr. Noble spoke to the children of * the origin of Easter, and how it was observed. The entire service was a beautiful one, with the song of children and sweet flowers, while the lesson taught by the glad Easter time, that "The Lord is risen indeed," could not fail to fill every heart with joy and thankfulness. Miss Jennie Nash, organist, had the following programme rendered at the morning service: Doxology. Te Deum in F Tours Hymn—"Welcome Happy Morning," Calkins Response after Prayer—"May the Peace." Offertory—"They have taken away my Lord," Hymn—"Come ye faithful, raise the strain." Hymn—"The Day of Resurrection," Smart AT ST. PATJII'S, Rector Selleck officiated in his finely impressive manner, and spoke of the beginning of Easter-time, nineteen centuries ago, when, at the burial and the resurrection, there was given to the world a great hope, so that joy-tears have ever since followed man to the grave. Mr. Selleck's words were especially earnest, and his congratulatory allusion to the incoming of the rector-elect among his people exceedingly appropriate and happy. The musical programme was as follows: MORNING, Processional, "Welcome Happy Morning, Easter Anthem . . Te Deum Laudamus . . . Jubilate Deo . ... Hymn 104 Kyrie ) Gloria Tibi j Hymn 419 Offertory Anthem, - "Break Forth Into Joy . . Barnby Sanctus . . . . • • Plain Song Sullivan Schilling Buck Schilling Sullivan Hymn 207 Gloria in Excelsis EVENING. Old Chant Warren Robinson G. W.

Huntington, musical director ; Miss Annie M. Weed, soprano ; Mr. Edmund E. Crow, tenor; Mrs. S. H. Huntington, contralto ; Mr- Everett Noyes, bass ; Mr. Fred W. Nichols, organist. AT ST. MARY'S CHURCH there was the customary large congregation at Mass, or morning service, while large numbers attended the Vesper services of the afternoon. Rev. Father O'Brien read Mass, and an excellent sermon, appropriate to the day, was preached by Rev. Father Slocum. In the line of music the excellent work wrought by Mr. Edward Brennan, the efficient organist and choir leader, during his two years in that dual capacity, was made manifest, despite the fact that some of the leading singers were necessarily absent. The singing throughout was of a high order, and those who were in attendance at Mass from other churches showed their appreciation by the closest attention. The music selected for the morning service was as follows : Vidi Aquam Haydn. K.yrie Weber. Gloria from Mozart's Twelfth Mass. Credo Weber. Offertory Sanctus Weber. Agnus Dei ~ Weber. Regina Coeli Werner. Easter Anthem,4' Strike the Cymbals'' At the afternoon, or Vesper, service the following selections from P. Giorza were most expressively rendered by as good a chorus choir as has been heard in many a day: Domine, Dixit Domi-nus, Laudate Dominum and Magnifieat. Then followed O Salutaris Hostia, by J. Wiegand, (baritone solo,) and Tan-tum Ergo, by Lambillotte. South Norwalk. TRINITY.

The regular monthly meeting of the Ladies' Auxiliary will be held to-morrow afternoon at 3 o'clock in the Association's parlor.. A full attendance of the members is requested. Hanford's Floral 'Hall was utterly exhausted of its blossoms yesterday as were those of J ohn Smith, Peter and the East Norwalk florist. WHAT MISS SPINSTER SAYS: That the Stamp Club will meet at Master Fred. Raymond's, Friday evening. • That the florists have had an unusually busy week. The Meteor rose rates next in beautyjto the Jacqueminot; it has obtained prominence on account of its superior lasting quality. That the number of incendiary fires that have occurred recently in East Norwalk is extraordinary, and the failure of the police to discover the miscreant is also extraordinary. That a little flutter of pleasant expectation pervades many of the mansions of our 400. A number of the rose buds are in high favor because of the marvelous gowns they will don for the first time at the Easter Ball. There is a delightful exhilaration as the hour approaches. Everyone seems to catch the excitement. The girls hurry, they lounge, they chat with smiles and volubility; they bear the impress of every strain of character, but before the eyes of every mother's daughter rises a vision of gold and pearls, shimmering silks a,nd laces that form the dainty creations prepared for their lovely Easter Ball. That a notion has got about in Parisian society that Ward McAllister is the author of four hundred books. These people have evidently not read the first of the fancied four hundred. Tnat the woman of the future will have a level head. The woman of the future is not going to snatch at everything that passes for a man because it draws a salary. That Mr. John Camp, of Hertford, is at the old homestead on East Avenue for a few days. That olive branches appear to be the popular Easter decoration at the Capitol as well as here in Norwalk. That Senator Seymour's proposition enables Connecticut people to see more chance of harmonizing their differences. That at the Catholic Church the musical services surpassed those of any previous Easter in artistic selection and splendor of delivery. That compared with former years very little wine goes with fashionable dinners. That people who visit Florida resorts become very tired of condensed milk. That the jeweled bonnet will be the most elegant of all spring head gear. That a number of women were recently badly squeezed during a crush at a church fair. That the church fair squeeze is not a work of art, and during a panic it must be very awkward, as well as bewildering exercise. That this is a spring of glitter, and a, spring of gray. The brightness would be blinding had it not for background the soft moonlight radiance. The silver tones would be nun-like did not the yellow metal set them shimmering. That the demand for burning our electric lights has become very general. That the deceit and hypocrisy of the "society women" of the day are simply astonishing. That the cruel and wicked fad of docking horses has ceased to be a mark of either good taste or fashion and now brings down on such owners only sneers and contempt, sometimes very audibly expressed. That the handwriting on the wall is that divorced women have had their day as social heroines. ' That Secretary Blaine should try his hand at arranging a reciprocity treaty between New York and Connecticut. That there are people who would not go to church unless they could ride there. That at St. Paul's church the floral decorations were elaborate and the musical services were finely rendered. That there is considerable stir about "red hats" among Catholic dignitaries just now. Bat a walk down East and West Avenues yesterday one would meet the cleverest and gayest girls in the world in their red, yellow, green, pink, white, blue, brown and black Easter hats. That Mr. Fred Lockwood, Miss Sophie Ayers and Miss Elizabeth Lock-wood were in New York Saturday to attend the matinee. That Mr. Henry Bissell went to New York Saturday for the first time since his illness. That Mr. and Mrs. James Cousins and daughter are at Major Holmes' for the Easter holidays. That Mr. and Mrs. John P. Beatty, Jr., are at Mr. J. Thornton Prowitt's. That Mr. John P. Beatty was a guest of Mr. Matthew Bird for Easter. _ That Mr. W. S. Moody, Jr., of the New York Evening Sun, spent Easter at the home of his parents on East Avenue. That Miss Clara Hill is home from Vassar collegc to spend the Easter holidays;, and willfattend the Easter ball. CONN. PRESS TELEGRAMS Specially Wired to The Norwalk Daily Gazette. The Hartford Conference. HAKTFORD, March 30,—Shortly after 10.30 o'clock Saturday morning the peace committee of the Connecticut Senate of 1891 gathered in the lieutenant-gov-ernor's room at the Capit6l. Senators Shumway and Clark, republicans, and Pierce and Thayer, democrats, were on hand. Senator Seymour was unavoidably kept from the meeting and it was in his place that the senator from Bristol, who has led the democratic majority in the long fight, appeared. At 5 o'clock they had come to no agreement except to meet again this morning and talk it over some more. The members had decided to keep the proceedings secret and they were unwilling to predict the outcome. The inference is generally drawn that if these gentlemen can agree*.on auy measure, its passage by both houses may be expected. , . •. Death of Rev. Dr. Crosby. NEW YORK, March 30.—After an illness of a little more than one week Dr. Howard Crosby died at 5.30 o'clock last evening at his home, No. 116 East Nineteenth street, from heart, failure brought on by croupous pneumonia. That he knew his end was at hand is evidenced from the fact that an hour before he died he requested the nurse to bring him a sheet of paper, pen and ink. Without assistance he raised himself on his left elbow and with difficulty indited a few farewell lines to his family and the members of his congregation. Dr. Crosby's death results from a severe cold which he contracted a week ago last Wednesday while at his daughter's death bed in Troy. Two Were Successful. ST. JOSEPH, Mo., March 30.—There were two successful suicides in this city on Saturday and one attempt, the victim of which may possibly recover. John Orch, proprietor of the Cottage hotel, put a bullet through his head and died almost instantly. Cause, domestic infelicity. A. Schram, a barber, a resident of the city for twenty years, also shot himself through the head and was dead in. ten minutes. He had been ill with dropsy. Presley Davis, for a long time a street car driver, took an ounce of laudanum. The doctors got hold of him soon after and pumped him out. Being unable to get work on account of ill health he attempted suicide. Two Horrible Deaths. NEW BHUXSWICK, N. J., March 80.—Two shocking deaths occurred in this county Saturday. Howell Stenaker, forty-five, a resident of Rahway, was crushed to death between cogwheels at Cook's flour mills at Blackwell's mills. While oiling the machinery his sleeve caught in the cogs, his arm was drawn in and t hen his sleeves and chest. The body had to be swept up, so terribly was it mangled. Benjamin lloagland, a colored choir instrumentalist in this city, while walking on the Pennsylvania railroad, was struck by a fast express .and horribly mangled. The body was tossed thirty feet by the engine. Assaulted and Murdered. CAMDEN, N. J., March 30.—An autopsy was held on the body of Nellie Ryan, found dead in Stockton township early Saturday morning. The result was not made public, but it is learned that the woman's body and face were badly bruised, her jaw broken and that she had been criminally assaulted. John Dailey, who was arrested when it was learned that he had been seen drinking with the woman, declares he left her an hour previous to the time detectives claim to have seen her talking with a ne-tjro, who is also suspected of complicity in the murder. A Splendid Horse. On Friday last, Mr. W. H. Lock-wood, Norwalk's noted horseman, brought to this place what is conceded to be one of the handsomest and best bred horses that ever delighted the eyes of admirers of "the noblest animal." The horse in question is "Ship-man," 507G, is of Kentucky Prince stock, and the sire of his dam was Rj'sdyk's Hambletonian. He is a handsome bay, sixteen hands high and was bred by Charles Backman, of the Stony Ford farm, Orange county, New York, has a record of 2:24i at Fleetwood, and it is believed can beat 2:20. At Mr. Lockwood's invitation many of our citizens who are interested in first-class horse flesh, visited Shipman at the stable of Mr. Charles E. St. John, on Saturday, and were more than repaid for their trouble. The Boston Store. The rush of custom for the past few days at the Boston Store doesn't necessarily mean that spring has come, but that the Boston Store has come to stay. The sales on Saturday were the largest of any day since the store opened. There was a great sale of kid gloves, and fresh lingerie for Easter, and it looks as if Saturday's Easter business had run over, for it has been just the same to-day. Table linen, in the most beautiful designs, dress goods in new and novel lines, ready-made children's clothing, and the most tasteful of millinery departments, all have their devotees, who think there is no place equal to the Boston Store for gains. x:.
