WHITE QUILTS.

Our leadership in counterpanes doesn't come from chance, but

from a close trade intimacy of long standing with the leading quilt

houses of the country. Prices on this class of goods have advanced

sharply In some quarters, but our buying facilities enables us to keep

our qualities up to the high standard, and we have made no extra

price call on our customers. You will find here the same high grades

at the same low prices as heretofore, a most unusual condition

considering the upward tendency of the market. The winter weights

are now on sale in orib size, three-quarter size and full sire—crochet,

satin and inarsailles. Beautiful examples of weaving; the designs

are so far ahead of what they were only a season ago that is well

worth your tilue to pause and look at them. We are always glad to

show you.

Thp New Year's season was entirely

unlike anything in that line for at

least thirty years. Ferdinaud

Scheeher remembers a New Tear's

celebrated on Marvin's Hill In company

with John Little and Thomas

King, congenial knights of the

needle, then well known in this

vicinity, when the weather was so

warm and balmy that they procured

a buoket of ale and left the heat of

the village streets aud sought a

shady nook on" the hill among the

rooks where they reclined on dry

leaves, tipped the buoket and smoked

out plug until the shadows lengthened

and bade them return.

On Tuesday there was an abundance

of bright sunshine and considerable

warmth in sheltered places, there was,

also, mud—deep and sticky—and

travel for pleasure was altogether out

of the question. But there was sunshine

and after several days of disagreeable

fog and rain it wn* w"' 00 "'*

Socially there was not a dull moment.

The first celebration was arranged by

Miss Marjorie Vreeland, at the Play

House, and it was attended with

dauoiugand music and all sorts of

fun and the enjoyment was such as

home coming children never tire of.

A special and very effective feature

was the introduction of red sun

bonnets with white strings and red

parasols for the luWes and mum mot h

red blossoms worn as boutonuiers by

the boys. The Virginia reel and

other dances, with the participants

thus attired were full of inspiration

aud greatly admired. The guests

numbered about forty. There was an

intermission for refreshments and

the separation and departure came

soon after midnight. After a few

hours of sleep aud breakfast all

returned to the skating pond to finish

the week.

The beginning of the following

week brought the most disagreeable

weather ever known, but youthful

ardor ouce aroused knows no thought

of postponement ou account of the

weather, and on Monday evening, the

same company attended an old-yearout-and-iiew-year-in

party given by

Miss Florence Yale. It was the

jolliest kind of a gathering aud, fortunately,

The year 1007 was ushered in while

our village was mantled in fog which

followed the rain of the last day of

the old year. The spectacle of watching

the old year out and the advent

of the new was witnessed by many

Brewster people. Members of Brew

loaves of bread a day. Over two

Doctors Part Families to Relieve

Nervousness.

RESULT OF THIS METHOD

Children With Hysterical Tendency

Sent Away From a Mother Who

Spoiled Them—Dangers Involved in

Constant Companionship of the Old

and Young—Diversions of Wealthy.

The old theory was that the separation

of members of a family was deplorable

wherever it might happen.

Now even the physicians part relatives

for their own good, Bays a doctor in

the New York Sun.

"1 just sent a mother to the Adirondaiks,

while the daughter has gone

to southern California. 1 expect them

both to be entirely restored to health

when they come back. i\ow they arc

nervous wrecks chiefly from the fact

that for more than a year they have

beeu constantly together. Neither ot

them is especially strong and such

constant association was bad for both

ol them.

"Even young children are sometimes

improved by separation irom

their parents. I've just sent two away

under the care of a trained nurse. She

will look after them and the mother

has promised me not to visit them

more than three times. They are

what is called 'hysterical children.'

That means they're bad and too much

for their mother's feebly discipline.

They're not hysterica? yet, but will bo

if their mother tries to discipline

them. Now they arc to be for two

months under the care of this nurse,

who will know what is good for them

and make them normal instead of

hopelessly spoiled.

Couples can separaie and the burden

of com pan iou ship falls on the woman

hired to struggle under it. Then the

daughter is able to get away. If she

is unmarried, however, and the family

it poor, she is likely to have a pretty

baid time. The mother, of course,

dues not suffer so much from this enforced

companionship as the daughter,

although such an arrangement is

equally bad for both. Without some

means it is, oi course, all but impossible

for them to leave one another,

especially when the family consists of

only two."

Size In organs Is not for the nonmusical

to judge, enough, perhaps,

that their ears should be made to

ache. But a step now being taken In

Germany should serve as an object

lesson to experts. According to the

London Globe, Prince Donnesmarck

recently placed In one of the new

Berlin churches an organ of dimensions

so large as to entitle the Instrument

to be deemed one of the

largest In the world. It has cost

about $20,000. The "blowing" is

most noteworthy are the "angelic

breakers," Bea waves" and

the "human voice."

Vegetable* Tinier Glass.

There are more than 10,000 establishments

In the country for raising

early vegetable plants under glass.

Within a radius of 15 miles of Boston

there are nearly 2,000,000

square feet of glass used in forcing

vegetables. Near Providence, R. I.,

are fully 10 acres of glass for the

same purpose. The suburbs of New

York, Chicago and other big cities

use nearly 5,000,000 square feet of

glass for strictly vegetable and early

fruit culture, and the glass alone

used In thus forcing nature Is worth

millions.—Leslie's Weekly.

Widened Kiel Canal.

The ever-increasing dimensions of

war vessels has led the German Government

to conclude to widen the

Kiel canal from 60 to 130 feet, and

the width at the surface from 130

feet to 350 feel. The proposed Improvements,

It Is estimated, will coat

nearly S50.000.000.

The Governor's Message.

Whatever happens as the result of

Qov. Hughes' message It has created

more comment than any State paper

sent to the Legislature within the

past thirty years.

Even those who were among his

most earnest supporters do not hesi

tate to criticise his demand for legislation

to secure a recount of the votes

cast in the New York Mayoralty

contest) in 1005. The failure to pass a

recount bill last year was because

Hearst's failure in quo warranto proceedings

was due to the fact that he

did not show any disposition to make

out a prima facie case. He simply

ignored relief through that channel

and pompously asked the Legislature

to provide a special law for him. In

that he also failed, and, unless there

is considerable change in public sent!

iuent,we doubt if the favor of the

Governor will give Hearst a chance to

point to himself as a bigger man than

the courts.

The adoption of a new ballot law is

important, and there are other

things in connection with primaries

and nominations that might be

improved, but a radical change of

election laws each year not only

perplexes the voter but annoys the

courts.

His recommendation as to roads

and water supply will be read with

interest and generally commended.

He says:

"The constitutional amendment of

1005 authorised un indebtedness not

exceeding $50,000,000 for the improvement

of highways. For the first time

the state has undertaken the construction

and maintenance of roads

in a sytiteuiatio manner. It has been

reported to me that surveys and plans

for the improvement of about two

thousand five hundred miles of main

roads have been approved by the

various boards of supervisors

throughout the state; that of these

two thousand ' jive hundred miles

about eight hundred miles have been

constructed, and that in addition

between Ave and six hundsed miles

.are under contract and will be completed

during the coming year. With

the exception of three counties, every

county outside of Greater New York

ha* petitioned for improved roads. It

is of great importance that this work

nould go forward and that the

system of main highway should be

completed with expedition.

The Brewster Standard, J^riday, January 4*f 1007

To Protect State Birds.

Hiss Jean h. Clemens, daughter of

Mark Twain, is largely, responsible

for a widespread movement which

has just been started to save the song

and non-game birds of New York

State from wholsale bntehery by

Italian laborers. In aletterto William

Duteher, President of the National

Association of Audubon Societies,

the daughter of the great humorist

made a very earnest plea last week

for the song birds of the region about

Katonah, which are falling in hun

dreds before the "pot-hunters' 1 of the

construction gangs at present employed

upon the new reservoir system

there. The following letter has been

sent by Mr. Putcher to James

Winston, the contractor in charge:

Dear Sir:—

It has been called to my attention

recently that many of the large

number of Italian laborers that are

employed upon the reservoir are

violating the New York State bird

laws and our Society has been asked

to take some action to see whether

t lie said violation could not be- pn •

vented.

I take it that these men all being

in you employ would listen to anything

that you might say to them

and if they were warned that the

penalty for killing any of the birds of

the state would make them liable to

arrest and a flue of twenty-flve dollars

for each bird, that it might stop the

illegal killing. Our Society is very

adverse to taking any drastic action

with men who are ignorant of our

laws, yet we feel it our duty to protect

and preserve as far as possible the

beneficial birds of this state. I therefore

appeal to you to call your men

together or to take such other

methods as you see flt and let them

know what the law is and to ask

them in the future to refrain from

killing any birds whatever.

There is also a law in the State of

New York which prohibits any alien

from carryiug firearms of any kind,

therefore, they are liable to a penalty

for violating that part of the law

referred to.

I enclose you herewith, two warning

notices, one in Italian and one in

English. I should be very glad to

hear from you on this subject before

I take any further steps in the matter.

Mr. Winston to-day notified Mr.

Putcher that he was posting the

notices as rapidly as possible and

would be happy to cooperate with

the Audubon Societies as far as lay

In his power.

Following the growing protest of

the people of the state, which Miss

Clemens has voiced, the National

Association of Audubon Societies is

preparing to carry on its work of

protecting the birds of New York

with even greater vigor than ever

at every point where these practises

of the more recent and less informed

emigrants from-Italy are threatening

extinction to the bird life of the

Empire State.

Barry's Logical Blunder.

The Democrats on the east side are

throwing all kinds of fits over Sheriff

Barry's appointment of Cortland

Christian a Putnam Valley Republican,

to the only salaried position on

his staff, that of under sheriff and the

salary #250.

It is pointed out by those Democrats

in Patterson who demanded the

place that Christian lives in a locality

where he is not likely to be called

upon once during his term of office,

while in Patterson, or on the city

works in Brewster, or in Cold Spring

such an officer is very much needed.

The friends of Sheriff Barry say

in explaining the "break" that

it is not the first time the money of

the taxpayers has been given away

for no service whatever, and that

there is no particular harm in giving

it to a Republican.

In view of this supremely logical

conclusion on the part of the new

sheriff the disappointed applicants

'for the place ought to chip in and

present him with some other kind of

joke book.

A CLEVER DECEPTION.

Hie Ballder Was Determined

Ills

The first lighthouse ever erected

for the benefit of marines Is believed \

to be that built by the famous archi- i

tect Sostrstus, by commend of Ptol-j

emy Philadelphia, King of Egypt. It

was built near Alexandria, on an'

Island called Phaos, and there was I

expended upon it about eight hun-j

dred talents, or over a million of dol-;

lars.

Ptolemy has been much commended

by some ancient writers for his

liberality in allowing the architect to

Inscribe his name instead of his own.

The Inscription reads: "SoBtratus,

son of Dexiphanes, to the protecting

deities, for the use of seafaring people."

This tower was deemed one of

the seven wonders of the world and

was thought of sufficient grandeur to

Immortalize the builder.

It appears from Lncian, however,

that Ptolemy does not deserve any

praise for disinterestedness on this

score, or Bostratus any great prnina

for his honesty, as it Is Btated that

the latter, to engross In after times

the glory of the structure, caused the

Inscription with his own name to be

carved in the marble, which he afterward

covered with lime and

thereon put the King's name. In

process of time the lime decayed,

and the Inscription on the marble

alone remained.

THE WORLD WE LIVE I!f.

Jan. 6. '07—(Gen. 1:1-25.)

Thla Is a wonderful world In which

to live. For six thousand years Its

Inhabitants have been ransacking It

from cellar to roof, and every generation

has discovered some new adaptation

of it, and stood amazed at Its

Tastness, Its variety, and Its perfect

equipment for the home of man.

Look at Its carpets,—gretn grass,

Interwoven with figures of flowers.

Behold Its ceiling, frescoed with

cloud-tints, and luminous with constellations

of stars. Its foundations

the everlasting rocks. Its draperies,

the rainbow colors of the autumn

foliage, or the bursting buds and apple

blossoms and green leaves of the

spring. Its front door,—the flaming

sunrise through which the day comes

In. Its back door, the gorgeous sunset

through which the day goes out

Its chandelier and candalabre, the

aim by day, the moon and stars by

night. Its chimneys, Vesuvius and

Btromboll, with multitudinous lesser

safety valves all around the planet.

Its flour-bins, the wheat fields of Europe,

Asia and America. Its Bafe deposit

vaults crammed with yellow

metal, only waiting for business to fit

Its key to the locked up treasure. Its

coal bins stored with fuel to warm

the world. Its atmosphere vocal with

the music of birds. Its hills populous

with sheep and cattle . Its valleys

covered over with corn. The cotton

plantations clothe the nations, while

In all the earth the hum of busy factories

is heard turning out richer

attire for those who prefer linen, or

woollen, or silken or leathern, or

furs. The air is just adapted to our

breath, the water is Just adapted to

our taste, sound is Just adapted to

bur hearing. We cannot Imagine a

better color for the sky, than blue,

for the grass, than green, for the

water, than crystalline. He who slanders

this world, only exposes his Ignorance,

for those who know It best,

and are most familiar with its magnificent

proportions and properties,

unite in declaring that as a residence

for the human race, it could not be

Improved upon. The fact that people

grumble about the weather 1B no

evidence that it isn't all right. It is

difficult to imagine some people perfectly

satisfied in Paradise Itself.

They would be uneasy unless they

could And something that needed

fixing.

\ Now, bow did all this wonderful

borne of man come about? Who Is

responsible for Its architectural

beauty? Who reared the pillars of

" the universe, and sent this planetary

ball spinning down the grooves of

time with such well-ballasted machinery

that it has never jumped the

track? There is only one answer.

There are theories enough. Plenty

of big men and little men, have taken

pad and pencil and figured out a

•peculation, more or less plausible

and acceptable to those who deny the

supernatural. They talk learnedly

about "star dust" and centrlpcdal

motion, and "germs" and "hypotheses,"

and when they have enveloped

us in an Egyptian darkness of

••guesses," they declare that the mystery

is inscrutable. Very well, leave

them there to flounder in the fogbank

of materialism, and turn to the

first verse of the first chapter of

Genesis, and read the answer. "In

the beginning God created the heavens

and the earth." It will be Just as

well to let that stand until some better

explanation is offered. I would

not be in a hurry to expurgate those

first ten words of the Bible.

i"" Napoleon Bonaparte, pacing the

deck of a ship overheard some of his

skeptical officers scouting the idea

of a God, and suddenly pausing In

bis walk pointed to the mlduight

heavens, all aaparkle with light, and

said, "Gentlemen, who made all

that?" and in the presence of such a

spectacle they were dumb. The Bible

Is the only book In the world that has

the glorious audacity to answer Napoleon's

question and it has never

been disproved. "In the beginning

God created the heavens and the

earth."

"A fire mist and a planet;

A crystal and a cell,

A Jelly flsh and a saurian,

And caves, where cave men dwell,

Then a sense of law and beauty.

And a face turned from the clod—

And others call it God.

"A bate in the far horizon.

The Infinite tender sky,

Her Opinion of Mrs. Ktowe.

It was only natural that in the

Beecher family the name of Mrs.

Harriet Beecher Stowe was often

quoted to the younger generation as

one having authority.

On one occasion a grandnlece of

Mrs. Stowe became very angry at

one of her little playmates, and,

stamping her foot, said: "I hate you,

and I don't want anything more to

do with you, nor your man-servant,

nor your maid-servant, nor your ox,

nor your ass."

Her mother, overhearing the outburst,

sternly reproved her offspring,

asking if she knew what she was

saying.

Little Miss Beecher promptly replied:

"Yes, the Ten Commandments."

"Well, do you know who wrote

them?"

The child, looking much disgusted,

answered: "Goodness, yes!

Aunt Harriet did, I s'pose."

The I'roud Father.

"Yes," said the old man, addressing

his young visitor, "I am proud of

my girls, and would like to see them

comfortably married; and as I have

made a little money, they will not

go to their husbands penniless.

There's Mary, twenty-five years old,

and a real good girl. I shall give her

comes Bet. who won't see thirty-five

and the man who takes Eliza, who is

or so, and then inquired: "You havo"

One doctor In the quarter of Crenelle

was so struck with this disagreeable

fact that he put his diploma

In his pocket and resolved to practice

as a "natural healer." A complnint

was made against him by the medical

profession, and he was haled before

the bench. "I am a doctor—here Is

my certificate," he naid to the magistrate;

"but, above all, do not tell

anybody, otherwise my practice

would be ruined."

Wealth of France.

The population of France is about

40,000.000 people; the wealth of

France Is nearly $45,000,000,000.

The United States Consul at Marseilles,

in tome recent statistics,

shows how evenly this wealth is distributed.

The number of estates administered

in 1904 was 394,787, and

of these one-half were for values

ranging from less than $1-0,000 to a

little under $100,000. Ouly three

were over $10,000,000.

The Brewster Standard. Friday, January 4*. 190Y

When Her Saint, Fefl.

Br A. Gladys Collins.

JACK TAR'fl SUPERSTITIONS.

The waves, as far as eye could

reach, broke In cold, white lines. The

shore was a dull expanse of sand,

«nd rocks climbing back and up

to the leaden sky. No sound was

there save the rolling of the waves

on the beach. Suddenly a bird shot

up from the jagged ridge, uttering a

l>krclng note of warning, and swung

with great, flapping wings out across

the water. A. few moments later a

nu.n and a girl were clambering

down toward the sand. At the foot

-of the descent they stopped, breath­

less, and seated themselves on a flat-

faced rock.

"And to-morrow at this time," the

girl said, "you will be gone."

The man nodded dumbly.

"Oh," the girl went on passion­

ately, "if I could only go, too. But I

mustn't think of that. It's a grand

thing Just to have a share in such a

mission, to know that even while

you're there doing that grand work

sometimes you will think of me and

this old, bleak shore. And I, of

course, I shall think of you all the

time." Her hands were clasped, her

wide, bright eyes fixed unseelngly

on the gray horizon.

The man drew her gently to him

*r.u kissed her upturned face. "Dear

little girl," he murmured. "It is a

great, great work, the greatest God

ever gives, the chance to lay down

•one's life for one's fellows. But in the

midst of It all I shall think of >ou

-often. When I am. tired and dis­

heartened I shall think of you, and

in my happier moments I shall wish

yc knew."

Her star eyes, brightened. "Ton

Br- almost a saint, dear," she said.

"Do you see that distinguished

looking man over there near the

woman in the terrible blue dress?"

-asked Miss Dorothy Trenton.

Her brother Bob nodded. "The

one Mho was Just talking to the cap­

tain."

"I want to know him."

"I'm not interested particularly,"

Bob replied.

The object of their conversation

was a tall, broad-shouldered young

map with a very brown face. There

wab something odd about him, the

something which made Miss Tren­

ton call him "distinguished." His

eyes were those of a dreamur. If auy-

one spoke to him unexpectedly he

Hill-led like a man suddenly awak­

ened.

When Bob Trenton disappeared

below, his sister shut her book and

rose with a determined air. Book in

hand she lurched down the deck

with the cautious step of one who

has not long left ber stateroom. As

she neared the young man the book

slipped. Startled, he turned, the

dream still In his eyes. The girl

-dimpled gently and he stooped to

j.Jok up the scattered pages.

That evening, in what appeared

DESTROYS SLEEP

Influenced In His 1'ndertsklBsjs by

Best Signs and Omens.

Although the advance of steam

has changed thousands of sailors into

firemen and deckhands, yet the spil­

ing tonnage of the world Is still

great, and there are still sailors of

the old bluewater type afloat

The dislike of the real sailor to

sail on a Friday is well known. Once,

down In Connecticut, they built a

ship to combat this superstition.

Her keel was laid on Friday, she was

launched on Friday, was named the

Friday and sailed on her first voyage

on Friday. Unfortunately for the

success of the experiment the first

voyage of the Friday was her last.

After she had passed out by Montauk

she was never heard of more. The

ocean and hoodoo blotted her out

forever.

It Is a mighty unlucky thing to

paint a vessel blue. Now and then

one sees a coasting schooner which

defies the hoodoo, but rarely. If you

ever see a blue painted schooner In

port just watch out. It will rain

within twenty-four hours and there

will In all probability be a long spell

of wet weather. At sea the blue-

painted schooner brings storms and

other misfortunes as In port she

brings rain.

There Is the schooner Donna T.

Briggs of Stontngton, which went

successfully on many a fllbusterlng

expedition to Cuba until her owners

painted her blue. She was captured

on the very next trip by a United

States gunboat. She is still painted

blue* and goes up and down the coast

but at every port she puts Into the

people say: "Look out for rain—the

Donna T. Briggs is in port." And

then it rains.

Real sailors, if such there be, on a

transatlantic liner are so accustomed

to having clergymen as passengers

they do not mind it; but a deep-

sea sailor on a blue water "wind­

jammer" would be mighty uneasy if

a 'sky-pilot" went along as a passen­

ger. If the ship reached port with­

out severe storm and disaster he

would ascribe the fact to the efficacy

of some approved talisman, which he

carried about him. Likewise a dead

body on board is the terror of your

real sailor, and he never feels safe

until the corpse Is put ashore. Even

on a transatlantic liner when a dead

body is shipped over the fact is kept

as quiet as possible for the sake of

the feelings of the crew.

Most animals on board ship bring

luck. Ships' mascots are scattered

over the seas in the shape of live

slock of various sorts from Green­

land to Cape Horn. But a black cat

Is an exception. A black cat is a

hoodoo of the worst sort. Some­

times a bold and venturesome ship's

officer or an abandoned sailor who

likes to tempt fate will bring a black

cat on board—and then there is

trouble.

of the British navy was cruising off

complaint and backache. I was so

weak and my back was so stiff that

I could scarcely move about and terri­

ble sharp shooting pains would dart

through my loins and down into my

would strike me next. Often I awoke

at night with a torturing backache

and no position would give me any

ease. Advised to try Doan's Kidney

Pills I went to a drug store and got a

box. The result has been a com­

plete cure. 1 have not had a backache

since I stopped using the pills some

twelve months ago. My back has

regained its strength and I can work
