Frice One Cent. Nokwp THE FAVORITE HOME PAPER. MepeMeit In all tilngs; Neutral in notling. The Gazette has the largest circulation of any paper In Norwalk, and furnishes the lowest advertising rates. , .4 % I) : 'Wr Alcohol and Tobacco; The committee on Education of the Connecticut Legislature haying favorably reported a bill compelling school teachers to pass a satisfactory examination on the effects of alcohol and tobacco before they shall be granted a license to teach, it now remains for the teachers to get together and examine into the subject thoroughly. The committee have qualified their bill, however, so as to allow the teachers to ascertain the effects of this drug and narcotic, theoretically, but they do not forbid a personal visit into the hidden mysteries of these, articles of daily consumption. This being the case, what will prevent our sshool mirms durirg the long summer vacation,-from taking a loaf 'of siigar, and after dashing it with lemon juice and placing it in a glass containing a slice of pineapple and a few strawberries, fill up the glass slowly with seductive champagne, and revel in the delights and dreams of a _ champagne sour. Or, should fancy lead to some other style of the barkeepers art, they could dally with a morning glory fizz. Should these fail to give the required knowledge a Manhattan cocktail,, the popular Gotham decoction, would without doubt make their hearts "jocund and sublime." But as the summer season is approaching and cooling drinks are the fashion, perhaps that drink of the gods, a mint julep, would better fill the bill. Visitors to Connecticut's shore resorts this summer need not be shocked if they come suddenly upon a staid and solemn school marm rocking in a hammock beside the sad sea waves with novel in one hand and a St. Croix rum punch in the other, for where could the effects of alcohol Ire better ascertained than at one of our shore resorts,? "Here could she sit and dream • V ^ Over the heavenly theme." When the question of tobacco is reached,we are afraid the school marm will fail us. The mere thought of nausea, a cold clammy sweat o'er face and brow and a dark brown taste in the mouth, has made many a strong man wilt before now. To ascertain the effects of tobacco theoretically is impossible. It takes the first cigar to fully acquaint one with the Greco- Roman effects of tobacco, and we are of the opinion that the Educational committee has imposed too great a task upon our lady pedagogues. ^ As the Women's Christian Temperance Union is urging the bill, the committee Bhould take compassion on our teachers, divide the proposed duties, and give the school marms the alcohol question, and allow the Union to wrestle with the tobacco, in which case the effects of each could be more fully understood. - "', TERSE TALES OF THE TIMES. i Look out for the dog-catchers. . r : f'i • : —Hale's Lung Balsam cures Spring colds. , 16-tf There ire how 150 prisoners at the ' county jail. : @ Yesterday was not very much like $8 the first day of May. wm B — £$WBBI " Chief Darin reports thirty-nine ai-j rests for last month. —Norwalk Steam Carpet Cleaning Works. 14 Knight street. ^7^588-tf / - _ ' • _ stm . • -" ; Arbor day next Friday May 5, and - tree planting is in order, The Ladies' Auxiliary of the Y.

The bill of Margaret Haley for injuries received from a' fall on the sidewalk was tabled. The bill of the board of relief for $120 which was referred at the last meeting of the Court to the chairman of the committee on lights was then taken up. Burgess McMullen reported that the board ought not to receive any more than the previous boards had, i. e. $60. He said that the first thing the board had done was to reduce their own taxes; failed to see where the Borough could get money to pay euch demands as this one, and if they were paid it would not take long to bankrupt the Borough. He then moved that the board be paid $60, and it was so voted. A petition was read from residents of Stuart avenue asking that a sewer be placed on that avenue also for an electric lighting of the avenue. The prayer stated that the petitioners would put down sidewalks, etc., as sOon as a grade was established &c. George Gerrish one of the petitioners was present and stated that the residents of the avenue were ready to connect with sewer if laid. In • the course of his remarks the- information was elicited that several of the residences on the avenue were connected with the South Norwalk water system. Mr. Gerrish however volunteered the statement that they would connect with the borough water system if their prayer was granted. The petition was referred to the committees on sewers, highway and lights. (It is not believed that the petition will be granted previous to the signers of the same connecting with the borough system.) The following petition signed by representatives of the Young People's society of the First Congregational church, and the Society of Christian Endeavor jvas read: e To tne Honorable Board of Burgesses of. the Borough of Norwalk,, Conn. , , s*;., - Gentlemen: ' It has come to our knowledge that there are a number pf saloons, and small places of busi-riess, which as often as the Sabbath comes arouad, are regularly opened, and kept open, in direct violation of existing laws. Ihese places are imperilling the good name 01 our town and endangering the morals or our, people, more especially of the young. Tnereiore, we, young people of the First Congregational Church, and members of the Society of Christain Endeavor," do hereby exercise our right of petition, respectfully and earnestly asking of you Honorable Body, in the interest of morality, and in the name of religion, and also out of deep regard to the highest prosperity of our beautifu: borough, that you will see to it, that the laws now in our statute books respecting the closing of saloons, snd all other places of business on the Holy Sabbath, be faithfully and efficiently enforced. And this your petitioners will ever pray. After the reading of the petition Warden Sloan stated that with the Chief of Police he was making every effort to keep the saloons complained of closed on Sunday. Said that' such efforts were in a great measure hampered by reason of the fact that it was hard work to get two reputable witnesses who were willing, to appear against the violaters of the law in this respect. Said that scarcely a day passed but that someone came to him with complaints in this direction but none of the complainers were willing to appear against the alleged guilty parties. Burgess McMullen said that if the prayer prevailed it would result in the closing of even the Chinese laundries, and.it would be too bad if a man could not go out of a Sunday morning to get a clean shirt to wear to church. Thought the petition savored too much of the blue laws. Burgess Squares said. that there was a law oa the Statutes in reference to Sunday closing that the petitioners could have enforced if ithey so wished. Burgess Glover was of the opinion that the Court ought to be cautious in the matter. Burgess McMullen thought that the granting of the petition would be too much of a fine thing for constables, grand jurors, justices of the peace, etc., who otherwise might be. forced to shovel gravel for a living. No action was taking in the matter. The police rep or t was read and accept-ed. Mr. Mansfield was then heard in the interest of the Norwalk Tramway Company. He renewed the offer of the company in reference to the grading of Mill Hill, and said that the company was ready to go ahead and do the work at a cost to the borough not in excess of $500. Thought there would be no trouble with property owners as to damages, Mauice Lockwood being the only one in doubt. He said that a great many of the abutters on the street would prefer that the tracks be laid on the south side of the hill instead of as originally intended in the middle of the street. The company was doing all in their power to gain, the good will of Norwalk citizens. "SI T|te following preamble and resolution was then passed: Whereas, this Court-has hitherto given the Norwalk Tramway Company a location for its track over and down Mill Hill, so called, in this Borough, and it has been shown to this Court, that a change of such location would be in some respects more advantageous and convenient for both said company and the public, therefore; Resolved, That this Court does, so far as it lawfully, may, hereby consent thatsaid company may in lieu and amendment of said previous location in the center of the street over and down said Mill Hill from near Hub-bell's lane to Smith street, locate its tracks there upon the Southerly side of said street in such location as shall seem to said companv most advantageous to the public and to it. Mr. Mansfield also spoke in reference to the laying of the tracks ,oa Wall street. He said that the company had some years atro been given a location for laying their tracks on that street. Said the legislature had granted the right to lay the tracks through that street. The location as previously granted would bring the proposed new tracks very close to those of the present horse railway tracks, and while such laying of tracks and running cars on the same was not impracticable, the company would prefer to have a new layout granted for the placing of the tracks on the south side of those now in existence, as being better for both companies. Thought the street was amply wide. Asked for prompt action in the mattfer on the part of the court. Said the company had the right to run its tracks through Wall street, and they would be so laid, but wanted to harmonize with all the parties interested. The following vote was then passed : Voted, That this Court objects to additional tracks through Wall street unless used jointly and that we request the .legislature to amend the charters of the two companies so as to compel joint trackage, and the cars to follow the rulea of the road. A petition in reference to the location of the tracks of the Tramway company on Belden avenue near the residence of S. B. Wilson, was referred to the highway committee and Borough engineer, with power, all expense of such change of layout to be defrayed by the Tramway company. Woodbury avenue was accepted as one of the Borough streets. Burcess Squire reported that the retaining wall petitioned for by Raymond Bros., near Jennings Place, would cost $150. The matter was tabled. On motion of Burgess Glover, the highway committee was instructed to procure granite blpcks for the paving ot Main street between the horse railway tracks. Burgess Squire reported that the approximate cost of a sewer on Butler street would be $3,800, and for the one on Filmcrest, $925. It was decided to table the matter until such time as an estimate had been received for the proposed sawer on Stuart avenue. Water Commissioner Street stated that it was proposed to lay a water pipe on Henry screat and asked that the hill at one end of the street be cut down before the pipe was laid. He was informed that the street had not yet been accepted by the B-orough. Burgess McMullen said that in his estimation it was a needless expense in the carting away of garbage. Did not think that it was fair to cart it away from one section of the Borough. If it was done at all it shoidd be done for everyone in the Borough. It should either be discontinued or extended all over the Borough. It was then voted to continue the collecting of garbage where now collected, if placed in barrels or boxes, restricting straw, hay, piper, etc. Warden Sloan stated that he had reappointed the committee on the assessing of damages and benefits by the grading of Butler street, the assessments, etc., now to include every property owner on the street. The chairman of the finance committee was instructed to borrow $1,000 on the account of the Borough. An invitation from Manager Adams of the Opera House, for the Court to attend the production of "Grimes' Cellar Door " to-night was read and accepted. ^ / Complaint was "made that the old church, building on Chapel street, occupied by Italians, was a scene of almost daily broils and fights, and property owners in that vicinity asked to have the nuisance abated. It was stated that property in that neighborhood had greatly deteriorated in value because of this particular nuisance. Burgess Glover then brought up the matter of the city charter, which he said would be brought before the legislature to-day, and thought there ought to be someone in Hartford to represent the Borough in the matter. It was voted that Warden Sloan, Burgess Chinery and Burgess Sutherland be appointed a committee to visit Hartford in the interest of the proposed city charter. The Court then adjourned to May 16th for the purpose of paying bills only. f t ( Another "Parallel Road."w - - The Middletown Herald announces a meeting in that city on May 10 of the directors of the "New York & Boston Inland Railroad." It says: This company proposes to construct a road between New York and Boston which will use electricity as a motor power. Only one rail is to be laid, the Boynton system. Very fast time can be made on this road. The cost of construction is very small compared to the cost of a regular steam road. USE DANA'S SARSAPARILLA,IT'S .

Alcohol and Tobacco;
The committee on Education of the
Connecticut Legislature haying favorably
reported a bill compelling school
teachers to pass a satisfactory examination
on the effects of alcohol and
tobacco before they shall be granted a
license to teach, it now remains for the
teachers to get together and examine
into the subject thoroughly. The committee
have qualified their bill, however,
so as to allow the teachers to
ascertain the effects of this drug and
narcotic, theoretically, but they do not
forbid a personal visit into the hidden
mysteries of these, articles of daily
consumption. This being the case,
what will prevent our sshool mirms
durirg the long summer vacation,-from
taking a loaf 'of siigar, and after dashing
it with lemon juice and placing it
in a glass containing a slice of pineapple
and a few strawberries, fill up
the glass slowly with seductive champagne,
and revel in the delights and
dreams of a _ champagne sour. Or,
should fancy lead to some other style
of the barkeepers art, they could dally
with a morning glory fizz. Should
these fail to give the required knowledge
a Manhattan cocktail,, the popular
Gotham decoction, would without doubt
make their hearts "jocund and sublime."
But as the summer season is
approaching and cooling drinks are the
fashion, perhaps that drink of the gods,
a mint julep, would better fill the bill.
Visitors to Connecticut's shore resorts
this summer need not be shocked if
they come suddenly upon a staid and
solemn school marm rocking in a hammock
beside the sad sea waves with
novel in one hand and a St. Croix rum
punch in the other, for where could
the effects of alcohol Ire better ascertained
than at one of our shore resorts,?
"Here could she sit and dream • V
^ Over the heavenly theme."
When the question of tobacco is
reached,we are afraid the school marm
will fail us. The mere thought of
nausea, a cold clammy sweat o'er face
and brow and a dark brown taste in
the mouth, has made many a strong
man wilt before now. To ascertain the
effects of tobacco theoretically is impossible.
It takes the first cigar to
fully acquaint one with the Greco-
Roman effects of tobacco, and we are
of the opinion that the Educational
committee has imposed too great a task
upon our lady pedagogues. ^
As the Women's Christian Temperance
Union is urging the bill, the committee
Bhould take compassion on our
teachers, divide the proposed duties,
and give the school marms the alcohol
question, and allow the Union to wrestle
with the tobacco, in which case the
effects of each could be more fully understood.
