A GLIMPSE 0F OLD TIMES
How Connecticut Girls Busied Them
selves Daring- School Honrs One
Hundred Years Ago,
In the early days of the lagt century the
town of Lltchlleld In Connecticut was tho
site of two notable educational institutions.
The first of these was the Litchfield Law
school, in which many men of note received
their early training. The-second was Miss
Snrah Pierce's School for Girls, afterward
known as the Litchfield Female academy.
For many years Miss Pierce's school was
famous throughout the union, or at least
throughout the coast and gulf states. It
had Its beginnings In a class organised,
probibly, in 1798 In the Pierce dining room,
and Tor forty years it flourished. From
records now available, Emily Noyes Van
derpoel has compiled a history of this
school, which la of peculiar interest in its
presentation of some phases of the New
England school life of a'century ago.
The young women who sat under Miss
Pierce's instruction were taken as board
ers by the residents of Litchfield, and were
under the family discipline of the house
holds in which they lived. There was no
lack of social life for them In dances, con
certs and similar diversions, In which they
were permitted to participate along with
young men of the law School. The young
men, on their side, were In the habit of
serenading the young ladles after night

spot in the early days of the nineteenth

woman of Litchfield, written n 1796, when
she was 16 years nld, and had upbuilt a

gives an Idea of the occupations of the
pupils at the school. Here are a few en
tries found in the month of May:
"Thursday, 2d Cleaned my chamber,
sewed, read la the American Magazine,
wrote a letter to Fanny Smith tho I shall
not send It to here, was Inattentive & got

The Sabbnth ended with ths sotting of
tho sun. In 1817 Dr. Lyman needier was
the preacher to whom the young ladles
llstened.nd Miss Ellsa A. Ogden. In her
joyrnal Xor 1817. thus records her impres
sions of him: -
-' "Sunday I attended meeting. Mr. Beecher
preached a very good sermon, quite as
good as he usually does, though I do not
think ho Is one of the best of preachers."
Hers Is an extract of a letter written In
1819 by Miss Mary Chester to her mother; '
"Dear Mother: If you can Imagine to
yourself a person traveling In the burning
sandy deserts without anything to quench
his thirst for a long time finally some one
should give him a cup of cold water I say
Mother If you can tell what kind of a sen
sation that produo'd you oould hav a bet
ter Idea of ths satisfaction It gave me to
receive your lovely letter."
Miss Chester1 wrote later to her brother,
and made this sisterly observation:
"Every Wednesday afternoon have
lectures In Philosophy. It I had a shirt
here to make for you, I would make It
while I am healing these lectures. They
aro very Interesting, see Thursdays,

gram.The state fair closed today with an
Immense attendance. The weather was
perfect. The feature of the day was the
rivalry between Pierre 'and Mitchell. Both
cities were strongly represented and the
grandstand at the grounds was the scene
of great enthusiasm. Storms of cheers
for tho contesting towns swept repeatedly
over the stand. Prof. Castllane, In at
tempting to leap the gap, turned his front
wheel too far and was thrown through the
air, striking on his head and neck, dislo
cating his collarbone. The balloonist in
the ascent took a hard fall, caused by the
balloon bursting. He was not seriously in
jured. He fell about sixty feet.
Tho races of the day were the best of

took, second money and Lady Almoneer
third. Time: tXlV,. 2:17. tM.
Ths second race was the 8:00 trot Ths
third heat of this race was declared dead

Three such propositions will be submitted.

Another Is to grant to the attorney gen

ing loans up to $5,000 to be made to any one
person or company, but limiting the amount
to be loaned on real estate mortgages to
not to exceed one-third the actuul value of
the lands on which the loan Is made. ,
' These three amendments will be submit
ted on a separate ballot from that on
which the general ticket Is placed, and
It Is the duty of the election judges to pre
sent one of the constftutlonal ballots to
each Voter at the same time he Is given his
general ballot, and by this means the con

vote than they did many times when placed
on the same ballot with the general ticket,
In which case msny of the questions su

of the total voto cast, the voters stopping
when they had marked the general tloket

to go by default.

The famous city of Rhelms Is associated
In our minds so closely with its wonderful
old cathedral which stands for all time as
the apotheosis of gothlc architecture and
with the romantic career of Joan of Arc, ta
any nothing of the famous Jackdaw, that
few people remember that this wonderful
old city Is the center of the champagne
trade and the home of the most celebrated
champagne firms In the world.
Ths olty directory of Rhelms gives ths
names of ninety establishments for ' the
making of champagne. Over twenty Arms
are employed In furnishing the corks alone,
while almost as many more are engaged in
the machinery used In thetlndustry.
The wine Is stored In Immense caves botb
In Rhelms and at Epernay, sixteen miles
distant, In the heart of the vineyard, dis
trict. Some of the caves extend for miles
under the c!ty( and parts of Rhelms are"
literally honeycombed with them. Often
they are three stories deep under the street
level, so ad to vary the temperature. On
descends to them by a splendid flight of 116
steps, cut out of the chalk soli. This stair
case Is over sixty feet in depth and is
lighted by electricity.
The caves are more than ten miles long
and are constantly being added to.' There
are . about 200 large rooms In them and
somo of the corridors are over a quarter
of n mile In length. These are named
after cities and distinguished statesmen
and one strolls along avenues bearing such
names as Cnrnot, Thiers and Washington
or London, Paris, Edinburgh and New
It Is not unusual to have as much as 52ft,-
000 gallons of champagne, or 13,000,000 or 14,-
000,000 bottles, stored In these, cellars at one
time. Instead of the dust-covered bottles
and cobwebs and Spiders we are apt to as
sociate with wine cellars, everywhere H Is
as spotlessly clean and fresh as a New
England housekeeper would wish her
kitchen to be.
Even the r.ns arts are not neglected In
these wonderful, cool depths. In several
rooms fine bas-reliefs are sculptured In the
chalk. La fete de Bacchus, un sou per au
dix-hul-tlme slecle and Sllenua, for ex
ample, are by well known sculptors. The
workmen are all well paid and each re

The Juice is taken In barrels to the cellars
and poured Into larger vats, one of the vat
holding as much as 800 gallons. The wine
remains in these vats from October until
January, when the mixing takes place.
This Is somewhat of a state secret In each
establishment, as each wine master has his
own method for, producing from wine of
different vintages the flavors for which his
particular brands are famous. This mixture

until April or June, when the great opera.
tlon of filling the bottles takes place.
The mlse en boutellles, or tlrage, Is
great sight. The rapidity with which It Is
accomplished by the many workmen Is
marvelous. There, are thousands of bottles
which first of all must bs tested and then
well cleaned. This latter process Is done
by machines. Then the long pipes are ex
tended to the bottles from the mighty vats
that hold the cuvee, and as the bottles ass
filled, . corked and wired they are lowered
In baskets, by a system of endless chains,
to the caves below, where they are staokod
in precise order in a compaot and solid
mass, yet so that each separate ons may
e taken out without disturbing ths others.
These bottles are now loft from one to
two years, when they aro put In small
racks, necks downward, and for two or
three months each bottle Is given dally a
gentle little shake by an experienced work
man. In this way the sediment la brought
gradually to the cork and the wine becomes
perfectly clear. One man can shake 30.000
bottles In a day. It seems a hopeless task,
yet It is all accomplished with great sys
tem and ease. In some of the caves the
men are allowed to use both hands in shak
ing bottles, but It Is usual for the workman
to use one hand only, and the result is
supposed to be better.
Then comes the degorgement. or removal
of the sediment. By some firms an In
genlus system of freeslng ths neck of the
bottle is used to accomplish this, and ths
sediment la taken out in a solid frosen
mass. By many others, when the bottles
are opened a most skillful manner of
pressing tho thumb over the open mouth,
letting tbe sediment out and losing little
of the w(ne, Is the usual method. This re
quires very great care, as no deposit must
be left and as little wins as possible lost.
