Shortly afterward another dispatch arrived from the Captain-General of the Philippine Islands, detailing the military measures ha is taking to support the action of tl:e Spanish squadron, and to defend Manila, Cavite and other places against' any American attempt to land in combination with the insurgents. The Minister of Marine expressed the belief that the United States squadron would reach Manila in about sixty 1: ours, and a battle, therefore, is expected in about three days. The naval men here who are acquainted with the Philippine Islands believe the Spanish squadron will take up positions hear Cavite, so as to be s; pported by the batteries there and at Manila.

A Clever Capture. Hnptain Dann Locates the Woman Wlie . ) I Abandoned Her Child. Captain Wallace Dann who has betn engaged on detective work*for the past few days, last night landed, huj prisoner in the station-house. , \ She was wanted for the allegtd abandonment of a two weeks' old child found in a vacant lot at Cranbury. . The Captain became possessed soon after the finding of the babe, which was alive, of facts that led him to believe that the woman who had abandoned the child was Maggie Quinn, who has previously figured in the courts of Nor walk. . The Captain learned that she was in Westport in the company of an Italian friend. Driving to Westport he enlisted the services of Sheriff Kemper, and soon had the woman under arrest. She confessed to having left the babe where it was found and says that it will be two weeks old to-day. She claims it was born in a New York hospital, and that she abandoned it only because she had no mean's of giving it support. The Judge found her guilty of tht charge preferred against her, and she was bound over for trial in the, higher court at Bridgeport in the sum of $1,000 in default of which she was taken tc jail.

The music in the churches of the twin cities has been up-to-date and in many cases unsurpassed by any chureh in the state during the past year. Apropos of church choirs. It is amus ing somfe of the stories one hear3 as one goes around. For veritable tem pests in teapots just give me the average church choir after they have been together two or three'years. It is sad to relate but it's nevertheless a fact that there is more dissension and bit-teroess, yes'positive animosity shown by members of choirs toward one another than there is in actual warfare It i^ truly laughable to hear of some of the small things, trifles it would seem, but which nevertheless cause outbursts of temper and the arousing of uncomfortable feelings. It is very trying ou the director of the choir who has 9i* t all to contend with. In church choirs misunderstandings arise and arc brooded upon and finally jealousy culminates. It would seem that it were better that choirs change about every year and thus avoid becoming so intimate with one another that that very familiarity breeds contempt. The protesting woman may please a man occasionally but can never make herself eternally pleasing to him. Suppose a man offers to take a letter uO the box on the corner for you, to buy some medicine that he thinks would do your cold good, to step around to a library to get some book that you are wishing for, don't protest. Your impulse aud the impulse of the average woman of to-day is, to say rather impatiently: "Oh no, I would not trouble you for worlds. I can mail my own letter." or "I never take medicine for a cold" or "I have something else I can read to-night." atly appreciate the man's offer out you obey your lirst impulse and that is to protest. I knew men well and they aren't creatures who offer their services hoping you will refuse them. They never uo things they don't want to do; when they perform a courteous service it is solely because they desire to do so and it oftentimes provokes them beyond polite expression to have, a woman show that nil3 ii.nl r itlier do things for herself. Most woolen love to be pleasing to men, h,«>1 tho woman who make's the great;st success along this line is she who allows meu to wait on her and SJOVTS that s»he likts and appreciates i j. ' :• •:••• And therefore, every woman should crush down and choke out the impulse in her to prote-t. It is siaiply habit and the art of the dissembler. "T -/« ' . • • An Exciusivc. The GAZETTE received a sp ;cial despatch from the UnionAsiOc.a ed Press yesterday afternoon, announcing the death of England's great statesman, William E. Gladstone. The news, was bulletined on the GAZETTE'S bulletin board and put iuto type for the afternoon's edition. Just before going to press, however, a second despatch was received denying Mr. Gladstone's death, and the matter was removed from the forms and no mention made of it. ; ? , When the Hour appeared a short time afterwards it contained an exclusive double-headed announcement of Mr. Gladstone's death, notwithstanding the fact that no despatch relating to Mr. Gladstone.had been received by that paper. As a publisher of exclusive aud important despatches gleaned from the GAZETTE'S bulletin board, the Hour takes the whole bakery. • = Are They Spies? ^; ^ ; Several Spaniards, strangers, are in town and there is a suspicion that they are here with no good intent to the U.
