past the princess has 1een busy paint
ing men of prominence in this coun

Mr. J. S. Bartell, Edwardsville, 111.,
writes: "A few months ago my. kid
neys became congested. I had severe
backache and pain across the kid
neys and hips. Foley Kidney Pills
promptly cured my backache and
corrected, the action of my kidneys.
This was brought about after my
using them for only a few short
weeks and I can cheerfully recom

(Special Corres. of Farmer.)
Monroe, July 21 The School board
this week ended the long discussion
by voting to close the Walker's Farm
school next term, the same as lower
Stepney, on account of the very small
attendance of pupils residing in Mon
roe. Standing close to the Newtown
line, this has been in the past, under
the former district system, a joint
school, scholars coming here from that
town, last term nearly a dozen attend
ing to three Monroe residents. The
latter will be sent to the East "Village
school. The Newtown children will
have to be provided for by that town,
this abolishing a custom prevalent for
several-decades, is probably a cause to
make the Newtown officials say things
and do things too, as one of our offi
cials thinks the case will go to law.
Mayor Rice- of New Haven, who still
maintains h?3 summer residence at
East Village and occupied by him and
family, gets back to the land at the
week end over Sunday and oftener.
The old style farm house, modernly
fitted up, is about the cosiest in Mon
roe and the genial Mayor thinks he is
r esting some when he is domiciled
there, to "bide a wee" or longer.
Monroe Center will progress a little
if the proposed new arrangement is
carried out by the telephone company.
Better and enlarged service is prom
ised and we-are waiting to see. Mar
shall Beach's general store is to have
a telephone pay station on account of
increasing business. This will also re
lieve his numerous house calls. Also,
Yhere desired, desk telephones will re
place the wall apparatus. There is
also to be a charge to call from
Bridgeport and this won't suit some.
Edward G-. Wheeler, brother of Al
bert Wheeler, arrived here Tuesday
from Alabama to pass the summer.
Although Mr. Wheeler Is almost an
octogenarian, he has made the long
journey in safety and: good health. He
is the eldest of the six remaining
Wheeler children. '
Town Clerk . Stiles M. Clarke has
great recuperative powers. Although
taken down again with his old ail
ment during the late hot spell and
under the doctor's care, he comes up
and out smiling this week and is get
ting into form again.
This has been a record summer for
haymakers, nearly everyone except the
eleventh hour people hereabouts get
ting in their crops without the least
bit of rain interfering.
H. J. Lord will m a few days have
men to work grading and laying out
the grounds adjacent to his new resi
dence, including the , construction of
driveways and walks.
Mrs. A. W. French, Jr., and two
children are passing the summer at
the country home of her parents in
Huntingdon county. Pennsylvania.
Work on repairs to the Center school
house is to be commenced in a few
days. A new floor is to be laid and
some improvements made. 1
The wit of the Stove Club rises to
remark that he don't think the "Hoss-
