Here we are charged $2.50 less 20 per cent, if the bill is paid within ten days, making the net price $2 per thousand. , j A short time ago an article appeared in a Bridgeport paper, reflecting more or less severely upon Andrew Haley and his family, and it was surmised that John Cox inspired the calumny. Saturday evening Haley and Cox met in Ratchford's place and got into ap argument which terminated in blows after they had adjourned to the sidewalk, in which Cox got the worst of it. Haley was arrested by Chief DeForest and this morning was before Justice Coolidge on the charges of assault and battery and abusive language, but the case was continued to Saturday morning at 9 o'olock under bonds of $50. - r ••• ' Special 6ale. r I —Tristram & Hyatt, No. S Gazette Building, commence Saturday, |June 6th, a special sale of Loomer's Steam molded corsets; do.

'T is well; but the good people who have already secured entrance into Paradise must look back with feelings akin to disgust at the trouble they took to get there. That visitors to Norwalk nowadays see much to excite their admiring comment. But perhaps the most noticeable feature of the scenery is the pervading evidence of the continued spread of the bicycle fever. The bicycles nearly outnumber all the other vehicles on the smooth roads, and they beat the equestrians ten to one. The charm about the bicycle is that it never gets off its feed, and rarely goes lame, Still the horse with all his faults, has his champions, and he deserves them. That "The Bugle" makes its introductory bow to the public to-day. Its managers have entered upon the somewhat arduous task of establishing a school paper, and jhave not only a conviction that such .9 paper is needed but, what is perhaps a jbetter omen of success, the courage bf their convictions. The only high roaii to popular favor is to deserve it, and, when in all respects deserving, there is no class of. enterprise which so quickly attracts public attention and wins desired results. Miss Spinster can wish "the boys good luck in their venture, and the DAILY GAZETTE will show no hesitation in acknowledging whatever of vigor and originality they may display. Reoeption. Miss Baird is to give a card reception to the patrons and friends of her popular school on Thursday evening of the present week. Pilgrim Council 54, O. U. A. M. Rev.

South Norwalk's ^ Water Bursts.-:.; Main Two Italians Nearly Drownad. About four o'clock Saturday afternoon, as a gang of Italian laborers were digging in a trench for the ne.w main of the South Norwalk water works, on the Silver Mine road, and on the crest of the first hill beyond the fork of the road to Silver Mine and to Comstock Hill, they excavated to within about a foot of the old iron main, when a piece of the pipe burst out and in an instant filled the new trench with rocks, earth and water. All of . the gang got out save three, and one of these soon escaped with a bad ducking in muddy water and a few bruises. One of the other two was soon after hauled out by his countrymen getting a rope under his arms and lifting him from his perilous position, but not till the water and mud had risen nearly to his arm pits. He was badly bruised and strained by the suction of the mud and the rapidly falling gravel and stones about him. The last of the three seemed hopelessly fastened. His comrades nearly pulled him in too, and cut his body quite severely in their efforts to pull him out, They jerked and hauled on his arms and at the rope un-availingly, as the water had gotten up to his chin and his death seemed inevitable, when, providentially, the flow of water was shut off, and he was then soon dug out and properly cared for. The poor fellow's escape from drown" ing was almost a miracle. On examination it was found that an old break, all rusted up in the seam, had existed for a long time, probably from the time the pipe was first put down, and as soon as the support supplied by the earth packed about it caved away, it burst out and caused this deluging of the new trenches and roadway, all about. After the water was shut off, workmen succeeded in repairing the broken main at about 10 o'clock that night. At about daybreak Sunday morning, a lead packing blew out of the old main at the fork of the roads this side of the first break and that poured all day into the long line of new trench and over the roadways, but no one was in* jured and little damage was done. Workmen on the new line say the first main was very insecurely packed and laid, and would have been liable to disaster at any time. South Norwalk meantime was connected with the borough mains, and our sister city thus supplied not only with its usual supply of Sunday water, but water of a far better quality than that they are accustomed to use. A resident near the scene of the disaster remarked to the DAILY GAZETTE reporter that there was ' 'never no great loss without some small gain," for he said, "it was probably the first time in the whole lives of these Italian trench diggers that they ever took a bath.'' The looks of the poor fellows certainly justified this •new of their case. Those wide-awake post office attaches Messrs. Harry Mitchell and Percy Gleqdening, returneid home from their western trip Saturday p. m. and are full of marvelous stories of the strange and extraordinary things they saw and experienced,- while, as it seemed to them, so dangerous a distance from, home. Percy seems to have taken on fat, despite the fact of the barber shop swindle, and Harry seems a good deal absent minded. Mail Carrier Biennett says he has kept humming "The Girl I Left Behind Me," ever Bince he got bapk. But then Bennett no doubt is prejudiced as it is known that both Harry and Percy angrily accused him of having concealed from them an important domestic event which had transpired in his family and which they felt from their relations of close intimacy, they Qiight to have been made acquainted with, but which they saw for the first time in Saturday's DAILY GAZETTE- "Things are working" and the I public may expect, soon to learn of important developments, as Bennett is bound to keep both eyes on these frolicsome boys, ~ . | The Donor of Yale's New Oonmltory. The name of tl^e donor of thp new dormitory which is being erected on the Yale campus was made known Saturday. It is Pierce N. Welphi of New Hayen, son qf the late Harmanus M, Welphj who left a fortune of $1,500,000. Of this esfeter Pierce inherited $700,000 and has a private fortune of $500,000. Young Mr. Welch is not a Yale graduate, and although he has-a family consisting of a wife and several children, he says he will have property epough to make them all cog\fqr^ble for life. The dorm.itQ¥y will cost $189,0(W.and,4be lushed in' about a year. Mill Hill and East Avenue. The anxiety on the part of many of Our best oitizens to have Mill Hill cut down and East avenue graded,guttered and side-walked, culminated Saturday afternoon in the entire Court of Burgesses, headed by the Mayor and flanked by the borough Engineers, by Attorney Hurlbutt for the property owners, and a crowd of miscellaneous citizens, who marched over the disputed territory and after viewing the same, gave careful observations as to the best methods, in their official and individual^opinion, for making the improvements called for with least cost to the taxpayers and least injury to private property. Fully an hour was spent on Mill Hill, and the question Of how "best to improve that section of the entrance to and upon East avenue, was debated from every possible side. The opinion as to this Improvement seemed to be about unanimous that there was but one thing possible to do, if this approach to the "Bridge" was to be made really any better than it no.y is, and that was to start just east of the stone steps to Miss Julia Lockwood's residence and cut to at least 13 feet into the knob or ball of her door-yard lawn, where it projects most into the street at the bend in the roadway. Thence to widen the hill roadbed down to the Honnecker bakery and set back that building, the Piatt Price building and cut off from the brick Quintard building on the corner about fifteen feet. In this way only can this narrow throat or funf nel of roadwav at the foot of the hill be made of a width adequate to the public needs. There were various views as to the grade, but a majority seemed to think that a regular and even grade should be made up from the foot of the hill to the juncture with East avenue in front of the new and beautiful villa of Dr. Baxter. The crowd then passed on to the disputed spot known as the "Daskam line of trees." Here the borough authorities and engineer, with several adjacent residents, were deoided as to the necessity of the outer or double row being" cut down. Others as strenuously expressed the belief that sufficient width would be left to the roadway if the curbstones were set close to the bodies of this pretty and thrifty line of trees which are so interlaced above as to form a complete arbor over the sidewalk. So no definite conclusion was reached as to these, but so far as the borough officials were ooncerned, they seemingly left as they came, with the fixed purpose for their destruction in the interest of a wider and straighter avenue. The next and last and most hotly contested point, was that in front of what is known as the Yan Zandt property and the Bennett place adjoining it oh the south, The old Yan Zandt homestead lot was divided up by the late Mr. Barnes into whose hands it fell, and he sold the first or north-side lot adjoining the Yanderhoef estate to Mr. Geo. W. Cram. Mr. Oram desires that the hill here should be out down and a gutter and sidewalk set at grade. Two years ago he got such a grade established, but nothing was done until the latter part of last week towards having this done. He had the full force of the borough contractor's men, carts and teams vigorously at work cutting into the bank at the time of this visitation on Saturday, and the work was being superintended by Burgess Burr and Engineer Wood. It was this act that Attorney Hurlbutt acting for the remonstrants, denounced as a breach of good faith on the part of such of the borough officials as were engaged in it, as a vote had been passed at the last meeting of the Court of Burgesses not to commence operations on this hill until he and the borough officials should personally inspect the same in the. view and with the purpose of making such concessions and friendly arguments as would save, at least, the long and beautiful row of trees in front of the Bennett residence and the property south of it. . A long and fruitless argument was here held, Dr. Coolidge, Postmaster Hubbell, the Warden and Burgesses, Mr. Oram; Mr. Beimett, Mr. Hunter and others par ticipating and at times, with a good deal of earnestness and heat. No satisfactory conclusion, was reached as to this most hotly contested part of the proposed improvement and the crowd left as they came, about equally divided, while the borough officials seemed to be fixed in their idea that they "could not make fish Of one and flesh of another;" that they had cutMr. Osborn's and others' trees and must show no partiality; that the public needs required a greater widthhere, that the owner# of property here were dividediu sentiment among themselves etc., etc., etc. aind there they retired. As to Mill Hill, Mr. Wood will be directed to makca map and submit it to the court-and also to a borough meeting, to be called, showing the proposed widening and grading and giving the estimated cost thereof ! BOLD ROEBERY; Masked Little Burglar Holds Up a Girl on Plymouth Avenue. No Clue to His Identity. This forenoon one of the boldest robberies occurred ever recorded in Norwalk history. Patrick Kearney, a stone mason, works for William Lawlor and lives at No. 7 Plymouth avenue. He had saved the sum of $53 which he intended using for the payment of bills. Shortly before 10 o'clock this morning a short man, poorly dressed and wearing a slouch hat and a black mask entered the house and pointing a pistol at the head of Lizzie Kearney, Patrick's thirteen years old daughter, demanded the money which he knew to be in the house threatening to kill her if she did not comply with his demand. Thoroughly frightened, the poor child sank to the floor but recovered herself, handed the robber Mr. Kearney's savings, amounting to $53 and the scoundrel made good his escape. ft , LATER—AN AKBEST MADE. / Just before going to press the gratifying intelligence is received from Chief DeForest of the arrest of the supposed robber in what are known as poor house woods, on the Westport road, and he is now in the lockup. Hat Trimmings Cases on Trial, i" Solicitor-General Taft and United States Attorney Read have finished their preparation of the government's side of the hat trimmings cases.. The cases are set down for trial to-day before Judge Acheson in the United States Court in Philadelphia. The amount involved in the cases to be tried is comparatively small, but as all the hat trimmings cases in New York and Boston will depend on the result, there is something like $20,000,000 really depending on the verdict. It is understood that the plaintiffs will be represented by Rufus Choate and Lyman Tremaine of New York and F. P. Prichard of Philadelphia. Another Blank Order. On Saturday we published a literal copy of a postal card issued by temporarily acting commander R. M. Rose, for the election of a First Lieutenant of Company F. We now give an exact copy of another postal card order, as follows: LOCKWOOD RIFLES CO. E, 4TH BEGIMENT, C. W. G.

The regular bi-monthly meeting, of the association will be held this evening at 8 o'clock. BROAD RIVER. ^ Nf<" A circle of the "King's Daughters" will be organized at the Chapel next Thursday afternoon at 5 o'clock. The programme being prepared by the entertainment committee for the Strawberry Festival on June 17th and 18th will be one of unusual attraction. On Saturday, near Harry Payne's, while the trench was being prepared for receiving the new water pipe, the bank caved, causing the old pipe to crowd in. Two Italians narrowly escaped death from being crushed or drowned, as the pipe burst and soon filled the trench with water.- Both were thoroughly soaked and badly bruised, and looked the picture of fright and misery as they slowly wended their way to Hotel "de Italy" near by. Mr. Frank P. Kellogg having left the employ of Jeweler Spencer, takes a position with a wholesale firm, in the .• same line, in New York." ft _ The recent rains have been very ben-eficial to the strawberry crop, not only increasing the size of the berries but extending the season. William Joyce is about the firBt into market this year, with sixteen quarts of fine fruit on Sat-, urday.
