Long before the hour of opening, these poor, starving men stand in a .single line that sometimes extends for blocks in length, waiting for the coffee and rolls. During the winter, this breakfast is given to an aggregate of 210,000 homeless men and v % ,nd up to date over half a million of the homeless have had their weary tramp restfully interrupted by this unique ministration. The first of fctffese break-fasts'is given on Thanksgiving morning, and the last on the following Easter morning. Altogether the mission supplied, this year, over 312,000 meals and 57,072 lodgings to homeless men and boys. It is for this grand, philanthropic work that we ask your kind and pratical cooperation. The homeless, friendless, disheartened and despairing men and boys of tho Bowery are not native New Yorkers, but men and boys who, until within a year, lived happily at the old homestead with father and mother, and perhaps wife. .. They are stranded here, and in despair appeal to the Old Bowery mission, which, for over thirty years, has been to the unfortunate, as the rescue cities of old, a haven or encouragement, rest and protection. Shall we turn them away? It rests with the good people of this country to decide this question, and may God graciously help you to decide it aright. JOHN C. EARL, Financial Secretary, 92 Bible House, New York city. The number of convicts sentenced for life at Wethersfield is 83. This is the largest number of life prisoners ever housed under the roof of the Connecticut state prison. The total number of convicts to day is 570, and nearly 15 per cent, of them are undergoing life imprisonment. Only nine female convicts are now included in the prison population at Wethersfield. What the Hartford About the! Has to Say The pessimist who can see no prospect of a business revival should have accompanied a Times reporter recently on his tour of the big establishment of Wise, Smith & Co. He would have become an optimist straightway, for at 2 p. m the was hardly an inch to spare in all this store's broad acreage. - Every aisle wi filled—every counter busy-and the people who crowded the store were npt hurrying along. There was so much to' bold their attention, so much that was priced amazingly low, so much that was ne and exclusive, so much of interest that only a big store like this can show. The present occasion is the store's eleventh anniversary sale, and it is an event that will prove notable in anna of the department store business in Hartford. It is undoubtedly the biggest bargain occasion the store has ever conduct- —business conditions throughout the producing world have made it so. From every manufacturing center the stocks have come, and in nearly every instance they were bought lower than similar stocks were ever bought for before. Wise, Smith & Co. have long been known as one of the big New England outlets for reliable merchandise, and in times like the country has seen during the pa twelve months, the store of Wise, Smith & Co.-8 reputation have the best things' fairly thrust upon them. -To the persbn who-knows values—the market price of cotton cloth, knit underwear, hoisery and other staples—the sale attractions of Wise, Smith & Co will prove to be re %•&'- __ Eor ' " • * • JUDGE V - 1 - ' ' il T - p 'i ' -' L Democratic Candidate • & - V • FANCY.: DRY GOODS, i [Ladies' Ski and Shirt Waists, "V " JUDGE ROBERTSON Boots, Shoes and Rubbers.

An old Irish-American citizen accepted the challenge. "Eight years ago," he said, "they towld us to vote for Bryan and that we'd be prosperous. I did vote for Bryan, an* I've niver been so prosperous in all me life, an' now, be gorry, I'm goin' to vote for him ag'in." Old Mrs Smith was a chronic com plainer and was constantly sending for the family physician and giving him a list of her fancied ailments. He always listened quite patiently, but was getting a little tired of hearing the same things over and over. One day when the old lady considered herself in an unusually bad way she sent for the doctor, and, after going over the usual list, ended by saying: "Really, doctor, I do not know what in the world is wrong with me. I can neither lay nor set." The doctor looked at her a moment, then said in a solemn tone, "Madam, you must be a rooster." ?ho Can Business Men Drink Grain-0 ? equal to Clears illl Enables you to get the correct view point and tendency to constipation for one week, and we will venture the assertion that your executive capacity will increase as the coffee poison in your system is supplanted by the brain and brawn elements of GRAIN-O.

Every favorable purchase we have ever made we have shared .with our patrons—and if you want to see our compensation just look at the crowds in the Btore this very minute. Could you ask for a better tribute?" . HANDSOME FREE SOUVENIRS—BEAUTIFUL DECORATIONS. The visitor will be impressed by the picture the store presents—the decorations— and the myriads of electric lights; and then there are the beautiful souvenirs that are free to patrons. Thousands of dollars have been invested in them—and the firm has the satisfaction of knowing that it is giving away articles that will be prized for their intrinsic value as well as beauty. The history of Wise, Smith & Co.'s career as merchant's is a story of rdmark-able achievements and unprecedented growth. The store is a monument to the sagacity and zFal of the planned it, managed it and by tious work have made it one of the big and staple enterprises of New England. One of the first of the many imposing exhibits that held the attention of the Times man was the show of furs; over 400 fur coats and nearly 2,000 neckpieces and muffs Coats for as little as $15'and scarfs for the very small price of, $1 49— and from those prices the grading was very gradual until the classics of the fur world were reached—the garments and throws of mink, sable, ermine and other furs. There were furs enough to stock half a dozen exclusive fur stores, but appreciative buyers were making rapid inroads into the magnificent collection and there will be little of the present show remaining when the anniversary sale is over. In the ppacious section devoted to ready-to-wear garments there are more than 4,000 tailor-made suits for women and misses—a stock hardly surpassed by that of any of the big New York stores. Then there are more than 2.500 coats and jackets for women and 1.800 for children. And add to this 1.500 skirts and waists and one gets a fair idea of the immensity of the Wise Smith showing of readf to-wpar apparel. But why say so muoh about suits and furs when so many other departments must be mentioned? The furniture floors show values the like of which Hartford has seldom seen before. A five piece parlor suit, upholstered in verona velour, with highly finished frame, is there for ?29 99 In car peter rugs and draperies the sal° attractions are many and mighty.
