Suspicious Actions of a Man Who Claimed to Belong in Danbury. He Leaves Two Fine Horses in an Academy Street Barn Without Feed. Complaint was made to Chief Bradley Saturday night that two horses were in a small barn and liable to suffer from lack of feed. The chief visited the barn and ordered the animals, which seemed to be a good grade of coach horses, taken to Bank's stables. There is considerable mystery involved as to the ownership of the horses. The story as to their being taken to the barn and by whom, is, as told a GAZETTE reporter by the agent of the barn Mr. G. A. Franke, in substance as follows. Some four weeks since a man who gave his name as Sherwood and his home Danbury, called on Mr. Franke and expressed a desire to hire a barn, he claiming that he had a contract in town in which he would have use for several horses. The barn he claimed did not exactly suit him as there were stalls for but two horses, and he went away. Mr. Franke thought no more of the matter, and was surprised to have the man call on him again last Tuesday with a request for a key to the barn, the party saying that he wished to stable a horse there over night. The key was forthcoming and he went away but the next day returned the key. On Saturday, Mr. Franke was advised that two horses had been placed in the barn at 2 o'clock, Wednesday morning, where they had since been stabled without care of any kind. He further learned that the horses came up on one of the pj-opellers from New York, and that the name of the man who receipted for them was C. W. Sherwood. He became suspicious that they were stolen property and telephoned to Danbury asking as to whether any horses had been stolen from there, and received an answer in the negative. Failing to locate Sherwood or the owner of the horses, Mr. Franke notified Chief Bradley with the result above stated. The owner of the aaimals has not yet put in an appearance, much to the regret of the agent of the barn. Recognition Clause Eliminated The House of Representatives, by a majority of 23, to-day passed the Senate Cuban resolution, with the recognition clause eliminated. The matter will now go to conference. Important Oyster Decision. Judge Wheeler on Saturday handed down a decision sustaining Pretice Chase's motion in the case of the Connecticut Oyster Growers association against Frank T. Lane and other oyster-growers. • This is a case of great interest to all oyster growers in this state; in brief, it holds that private oyster growers cannot assume control over certain parts of natural oyster grounds, and assert a monopoly of the benefits coming from such ground. * War Orders. Postmaster Malone was iu receipt of war orders from the Postmaster-General this morning. The orders state that any employee who is a member of the militia, or who enlists, will be granted a leave of absence without pay in case of war, and his place will be kept for him until he returns. The La Mont Club. The leading speaker at the meeting of the La Mont club yesterday was Mr. Frank A. Ferris. He gave the club a very interesting and educational talk. Mr. Ferris is very much interested in the success of the club, and the members are helping him out in the laudable enterprise in a splendid manner. EYE'S RAMBLINGS. COMMENT AND GOSSIP AMONG THE WOMEN; BY ONE OF THEM. When the spinsters and childless women and men who "run" the Mothers' Congress have disposed of the vast range of topics which are about as close to their subject as if they were viewed through the wrong end of the opera glass, they will find it both pertinent and .timely to consider the subject of corporal punishment for children. The many who have thought that this practice was so obsolete as to require no consideration have only to recall the recent invention of a spanking machine, which, according to the inventor, was to lessen the labors of the nursery as well as the reform school. With the spanking machine in existence, it is time for another crusade against the evils of corporal punishment— habitual domesticated corporal punishment, that is to say—for however necessary such a thing may be in a reformatory, it is not in one case in a hu adred to be recommended for a home. It is all very well to say that children can only be disciplined by physical infliction, and their consciences are only to be reached through their senses. A little more patience and wisdom upon the part of the parents would obviate all such difficulties. When corporal punishment isn't an outlet for parental wrath it is preity certain to be the result of laziness. Ever so little exertion of forbearance might avert many a spanking. "Spare the i-od and spoil the child'' was all right, perhaps, in the days of Solomon, but a good many other things were right then, too—among others a whole haremful of wives. "I can always tell the child that has never known what it is to be whipped,,' said a wise woman the other day. "He has somehow a different air and look from the child to whom it is an accustomed thing. He is so fearless, so upheaded, so sure that he has nothing to dread in the way of brutality or treachery. And also ean I tell the father or mother who are in the habi ^ of so punishing their children. ' The effect is just as telling upon them as it is upon the child." The whole subject, perhaps, might be better treated in a Child's Congress, though some time, after the mothers have exhausted all other far-fetched topics, it wouldn't hurt them one mite to con sider it. , FELL FROVA CAR. Messenger George Seiieck Meets With a Bad Accident in New York. While in New York on Saturday, Messenger George N. Selleck became faint in a street car and in attempting to reach the platform pitched from the car, to the street, striking upon his face and cutting a bad gash in his forehead and across the nose. He was picked up and taken to a hospital, where his wounds were dressed after which he returned to his home on Crescent Terrace, South Norwalk. 1 he Bicycle Contest. The voting contest for the bicycle to be given away by H. A. Saunders is getting more exciting every day. Nevr contestants are entering the fray and from now on the contest will be lively. As the ballots are counted each day the positions of the contestants are changed, which goes to show that it is anybody's race yet. Athletic Entertainment. There will be another athletic entertainment at the Opera House next Monday night, April 25th, when three star "bouts" will be given between the following boxers: Ten rounds between Trueman and Martin at 110 pounds, ten rounds between Wilson and Connors at 115 pounds and ten rounds between Fox and Scott at 138 pounds. Gus Peverelly of New York will referee and Fred Coleman of South Norwalk will act as timekeeper. War News.
