We doubt very much if the people who are opposing the Liberty street extension are fully alive to the importance of the matter they have in hand. When we come to think that the population which is clamoring for this reform is as large as the population of Alaska, one-third as large as Arizona, twice that of Greenland, 5,000 more peo ple than Bermuda, can form some idea of our duty towards them; Between Brooklyn and the Abrigador stands the largest brass mill in this wide world ! We could draw a very vivid pic ture of the claims which Liberty strset suggests jbut the time nor space will not permit. Our facil ity ought to keep pace with the population. Our merchants alone lose thousands yearly in the matter of delivery of goods, because of the roundabout way they have for reaching these two important centers. We hope our City Fathers in their wisdom will see a wav out of this difficulty and give the peo ple what they want in the mat ter of extending Liberty street. We are enjoying the largest fall trade in the history of our concern. The Glen wood Range, with all its improvements, is a blessing to any community. There are no divorces where it is used. The Big Store with the Little Prices has a warm place in the hearts of the peo ple of Western Connecticut. Remember we furnish your houses clear through, and, un like other noisy houses who claim to do the some thing, we have the goods to do it with. And as 73 per pent pf he p go pie jbuy qn crecjit, we don't put on from 10 to J3Q per cen jqst because you can?t; pay all the money at once.

A very funny incident took place aud one of our old and enthusiastic soldiers retired from the field not worsted, but dis gusted. A new set of drill laws has just beeu put in force and the boys were diligent l.v practicing when Lieutenant Bannon walked into the drill room. The lieu tenant is usually called major by the military boys, who recognize him under his military title. As, lie entered the drill room Corporal Law lor approached him at a right shoulder arms and saluted him from that position. The major-lieutenant was surprised as well as astonished that a corporal should render a military salute without coming to a carry arms. lie proceeded to call down the corporal, when he heard a laugh from the other military boys and turning arouud he saw the boys execut ing right shoulder from present and order arms, and vice versa. Carry arms was conspicuous by its "absence. This so disgusted the old war horse that he left the armory in disgust. Quartermaster Sergeant James Mc Donald resigned his position owing to pressure of business and Private Joseph F. Hauiou was promoted to till the va cancy. Private Daniel Cavanaugh Avas appointed company steward. Major Nolan's football team came in for a severe touch down. The boys want to back them but the major thinks they are not what they are represented to be. The company w ill attend the lecture of Uev Asher AndersouoE Merjden, the chaplain of the Second regiment, at the Second Congregational church ou the evening of December 8.

A draper's assistant was showing a lady some-parasols. Tho assistant had a good command of language and knew how to expatiate on the good qualities and show tho best points of goods. As ho picked up a parasol from tho let on tho counter and opened it he struck an attitude of admiration, and holding it up to the best light that could be had said: "Now, there, isn't it lovely? Look at that silk. Particularly observe tho qual ity, tho finish, the general effect. Feel it. Pass'your hand over it. No nonsense about that parasol, is there?" ho said as he handed it over to the lady. . "Ain't it a beaut v?" "Yes," said fho lady. "That's my old one. I jnA lad it down hero. Liverpool Mercury. A Tramp Cries. It was simply an everyday incident of city life, but it attracted tho attention of ono passerby. The merry pupils cf one of the dis- trict schools were romping in tho play ground, nothing distracting their atten tion from tho sport, but from without a man, a tramp, with ragged coat aud un kempt appearance, was peering through the iron palings. Nothing was said, but when the chil dren were called back to work,. ho turn ed away, brushing a tear from his sod den face with his ragged sleeve.

PINE HILL The People of That Vicinity Now Talking . About a Public Park. With one of the finest school buildings in the center district, ornamented by a clock with illuminated dials, several new streets in process of construction, at-d the promise of one of the most popular priests in the diocese to miuister to their spiritual needs, one would suppose that the ambitions of Uie people of the south eud would be satisfied for the present. But this is not the case. The residents of this section are progressive and believe in retrieving lost ground, and assert that they are behiud the rest of the city in the matter of public im provements. The next great scheme which those interested in this great section w ill agitate is a public park on Pine hill. If the I103S take the matter iu hand it is sure to come. A few years asro the man who would 5:13 that the things the people of that section have now secured would be a reality at this time would be called a dreamer. The prospect of a park ou Pine hill in the near future is much more probable to-daj- than that of a church on Baldwin street was one year ago. UnnrJcs the Gnntlop. Tho follovring extracts give furthe? Information concerning this punish ment : "In running the gantlope, the regi ment was formed eix deep, and the ranks opened and faced inward. Each man be ing furnished with a switch, the offend er, naked to the waist, was led through tho ranks, preceded by a sergeant, tha point of whose reversed halbert was pre sented to his breast to prevent his run ning too fast. As he thus passed through the ranks every soldier gayo hira a stroke." Groeo's ".Military Antiqui ties," Volume 2, Pago 108. But tho eldest notice I have seen is given in "Monro: His Expedition with tho Worthy Sects Regiment (called Mackeyes Regiment), levied in August, 1620, etc, London: Printed by William Jones in Red-Crosse-Streete, 1637:" "Othor slight punishments we en joyue for slight faults, put in execution by tboir camarades ; as the loupegartha (running tho gantlet; Swedish gantu lopp, to run through a hedge made by soldiers), when a souldier is stripped naked above the waste, and is made to runne a furlong betwixt 200 soul diers, ranged alikfi opposite to others, leaving a space in the midst for the souldier to runne through, where his camarades whip him with email rods ordained and cut for the purpose by the Gavilliger (provost marshal), and all to keepo good order and discipline.' Notes and Queries. V Tho Coal Man. ' "Tho train was late," the traveler said, "and when it got to tho placo whero we were to get supper everybody was tremendously hungry, and every body, or almost everybody, made a wild rush for the restaurant. A cool man wag one of a few who did not hurry, and who, when tlioy got into the restaurant, found that every seat was taken. Hera was a situation to test a man's nerve. Only 20 minutes lor tho meal, aud with, the train late, that time sure not to be prolonged, and it was the last meal of tho day. There would be no more eating stops until morning. Some men would have fretted and fumed and made them selves unhappy over this, and that is just what one or two of the others with out seats did, but the cool man remain ed perfectly calm and undisturbed. Ia fact, he seemed rather to enjoy looking on at tho scene of activity. But calm as he was, he was none the less alert. With unerring acuteness, though in a casual sort of manner, he stationed himself near the quickest eater, and when that gentleman had pitchforked himself full, which he did in about ten minutes, the cool man took his seat, tho first one va cated. There was still ten minutes, and how ho profited by it could be told by tho added touch of serenity observable upon his countcnanco when he lighted his cigar in the smoking room of tha sleeper." New York Sun. A Divided Jury. A man was on trial in Lake county recently on a charge of grand larceny. Ho was accused of stealing a hog. Au old rancher, whose interest in the case was due to the fact that ho owned a big drovo of hogs, listened attentively to tho impaneling of the jury and then left the courtroom with an undisguised dis gust, "Whut's tho matter, Sam?" inquired an attorney. "That jury's goin to disagree," ha declared emphatically. "What makes yen think so?" ' "Think? I den't think nctfbin about it. I know it." "Well, then, how do you know it?" "Why, they've got six hog men that raise hogs and four men that I knows has stole hogs on that jury, and nobody ever know'd a heg raiser an a hog thief as would agree on a hog case,"-Saa Francisco Pest.
