The fair and horse show of the Bea Con Valley grange will be held at the EBeacon Valley driving park on Sep tember 15 and 16. The committee of arrangements are anticipating a big attendance.

A team belonging to the Grant Gro cery ; company on Saturday evening thought they , had been out delivering goods long enough and while the dri ver was in a house above the ceme teries leaving his packages, wheeled around and started for home, coming flown Oak street, and keeping clear of everything until they arrived home.. There was a large attendance at all the church services yesterday. The Rev Mr Soule's discourse on the slaughter of the innocent birds to decorate the headgear of our ladies, was a very interesting talk, and with out doubt will be the means of some discarding the use of the same as or naments. We noticed only five hats In the church with birds on for trim ming.? it .; , i - : .. . Division No 2, A. 6. H., have an nounced a three days' festival at the Gem opera house, September 16-17-18. Charles F. Underhill, the impersonator, vlll occupy the house with his imper sonation of "Rip Van Winkle. "on Wed nesday evening, the 15 of September. Mr Underhill was here in the "Rivals," a few months since and is one of the finest in the country. We took a look over the new school eruonds yesterday and although it may be, we doubt of its being entirely fin ished and furnished by September 6. The grounds grade off very nicely, a few feet of terrace in front giving a line appearance which we hope the commit tee will not spoil by running a fence across it. We are also glad to hear that there has been no piece sold off at the rear of the Pierson, as there is no more than is needed for the use of the district. There is to be a side hill walk laid on the Carroll street side. No fences should run farther front than the front of the building. The district committee meet to-night to further their plans for finishing. For the second time within a week Mrs Ellen Glynn has been arrested for Intoxication and abusive language. Her case was nolled last week. Officer Fruin locked her lip Saturday night. John Dillion got full yesterday and found his way into Chief Hosford's re treat. Charles Laren, who has been before the court on other occasions, is a little particular who arrests him and refused to submit to anything short! of the chief, so he went after him. This morning Laren was in court to answer for an assault on his wife with a strap. Che witnesses did not show up and the case went over until to-morrow. Mrs Glynn's case was continued for thirty Cays and John Dillon's bond was for feited. On June 1, a son of Michael Kelleher, about 12 or 13 years of age, along with a son of Representative McCarthy, Jeft home. Neither was heard from Until a few days since when Kelleher .Svrote a letter to his father, saying he .was in Troy, and that McCarthy had left him two days before for Canada. Yesterday's New York Sun says that Kelleher was found in a raid on tramps n a canal barn in Watervleit, near tTroy, nearly naked, and shoeless. He was put in the care of the Humane so ciety until his folks sent for him. Mr Kelleher is a machinist in the employ of the Glove company. His wife died a short time since. We understand that Kelleher sent someone to Troy to look up the boy on Friday or Satur day last. Health Officer Smith has had con siderable trouble to locate the cause of typhoid fever at Woosters, where two new cases broke out last week. He went through cellar, sink pipes "and everything thought of with disinfect ant and still two new cases appeared. On Friday Wooster came to town and told him he had thought of an old un used cistern that was uncovered and had some two or three feet of water, leaves and rubbish in it. Mr Smith ordered him to clean it out after ex amining it, which Wooster tried to do, but the stench was so bad when he once stirred it up that he could not stand it. The health officer then ordered lime to be slaked in it and had it cleaned. Wooster says he not only found leaves, but dead snakes and lizzards, and the worst mess he ever struck. Whether the fever came from that or not, it was x good job to clean it. There are sev eral case3 of typhoid fever in the bor ough. There was still another case of ty ohoid fever reported at Wooster's last .light. This is a home of man, wife ad six children with typhoid fever in the family for the past twenty-four .lays, with four cases, thefirst of which just begins to sit up. It requires the attention of both father and mother to rake care of the sick, and a daughter i.hat was at work in the shop is now one of the invalids. They live on the New Haven road, about a mile below here. The family is a worthy one, but not in the best of circumstances. In fact we are assured that they not only are entitled to sympathy, but need assistance. A GREAT SURPRISE IS IN STORE. For those who will go to-day and get a package of GRAIN-O. It takes the place of coffee at about the cost. It is a food drink, full of health and can be given to the children as well as the adult, with great benefit. It is made of pure grains and looks and tastes like the finest grades of Mocha or Java cof fee. It satisfies everyone. A cup of Grain-O is better for the system than a tonic, because its benefit is permanent. What coffee breaks down Grain- builds up. Ask your grocer for Grain 0, 15c and 25c.

FOUGHT BALL GAME IN WHICH WE SUFER DEFEAT First Contest Under the New Manage ment (Brilliant Catches, Hard Drives and a Battle Against Odds Fought to the Last Charles N. Haight, the Professional Actor in Town In the Churches Yesterday Comments of the Day. Oakville has always had the reputa tion of being to some extent enthusi astic over the national sport. We have had some first-class men, years ago, who could put up a manly game to the strongest teams for miles arond. But they have seen their best days and passed from the notice of the public, while another class have sprung up and have surprised the whole commu nity by their ability. From time to time victories have been added to the list, but recently the Oakville Consol idated has met with two discouraging setbacks. Saturday afternoon the team with a big crowd of supporters went up to Watertown with the intention of defeating their opponents and com ing back victorious, but they were de feated. Our boys put up a far super ior game than their opponents. They ran bases better, batted harder and used better judgment. The umpire was out and out against them in the latter part of the game and rendered Some defective decisions which were mutually objectionable to all parties. His- rulings were deficient in many points and although he was supposed to possess extraordinary judgment and experience he was decidedly out of place in that position. At the conclu sion of the game the score stood 10 to 11. Next Saturday afternoon it is probable that a game will be arranged with an out-of-town team and Charles N. Haight will umpire. Charles N. Haight, a professional ac tor, is on a week's vacation at the home of his mother here. Mr Haight came from Saranac Lake, in New York Saturday. This is a well known sum mer resort, where, acording to Mr Haight, fish in abundance exist. Pick erel weighing from eight to ten pounds and perch three, trout, bullheads, etc, by the boat load. lie reports the the atrical business at this time of the year a.s being fair. Next week he will open his engagement with the Bates Broth ers' repertoire company, in Great Bar rington, Mass. There seems no apparent reason why Timothy Kelly could not open up a barber shop at his old stand, which he occupied some months ago. He was popular with the people then and is so now. Oakville cannot remain long without a barber that is certain. No little amusement was aroused by a remark of Colonel Atwood's, a short timea go, in which he stated that he would dress in style if he didn't save a red cent. The colonel's droll sayings are too wel known to need further in- Jacque Marshall stored his belong ings to-day, and thus Kennedy's block is now empty. Mr Kennedy, who is a wide-awake business man, will find no trouble in securing new tenants. Another new tenement looms up near Railroad avenue, that of Charles Atwood's, of Watertown. Mr Nitche has the cellar completed for his new house. Charles Judd's sister, who is danger ously ill in Bristol, is about the same as last week, no change having taken place in her condition. Wralter Straw, Charles Grey, Charles Warner and Arthur Newell attended the Meriden-Waterbury game Satur day. We learn that, a son was born last week to Mr and Mrs Alton Cushman. Margaret Griffith, of Bristol, is visit ing with Mrs Joseph Geoghegan. Miss Mary Griffith, of Bristol, spent Sunday with Miss Mary Murtha. Miss Dennin, of New York, has been visiting with Miss Alice Murtha. No services were held in the parish rooms yesterday. Dr Purdon's office will hereafter be located at S. H. Cowles. Bert Gully has secured a position in Winsted. HOW SOME PRESIDENTS D)ED, James Madison passed away of old age and w as buried at Montpelier, Vt.

MR TWIST WANTS A CONSERVATOR APPOINTED OVER HIS WIFE. A Judge of Probate Hearing This Morning in the Town Hall Water town Defeats Oakville by a Close Score Advertised Letters in the Postofflce Events of a Hustling Town. This morning the hearing between Henry Twist, the wagon maker, and his wife, took place in the office of the judge of probate at 10 o'clock. Lawyer Carmotly of Waterbury appeared in the interests of Mr Twist. The whole affair, according to the understanding of the case, resulted over the fact that Mrs Twist owns property consisting of the house occupied by the family and the real estate surrounding and adjoin ing the same. Mrs Twist, it is alleged, is not capable of taking care of her possessions to her own welfare and her husband has come to the conclusion that the best way out of the difficulty would be to . appoint , a conservator over his wife to see that her property would remain intact. Whether Mr Twist wished to be named as guardian, or some other responsible person, it is not known, but the two people cannot agree as to the manner in which the estate should be settled. His wife is of the opinion that she has the ability to look after her own interests, while Mr Twist thinks otherwise. The af fair is causing no little talk in town and the outcome of the matter which will probably be reached to-day is looked forward to with interest. A good story comes from our East Side correspondent, who was accosted by two dirty looking tramps, two or three days ago. They were genuine specimens of the "Wandering Willie" tribe, uncouth and destitute. One of them approached the gentleman, and as he was on the outskirts of the town he felt a trifle alarmed, but the fellow soon made it appear that he meant no offense, and stretching out his long, bony arm, he asked where that road led to, and was told Watertown. He turned half around and pointed gain, asking the same question. "Water bury," was the reply. Then he point ed to the only remaining road and ask ed again the question, "Where will dis fetch us?" "Waterville," was answered. He turned away with a look of agony on his face and screamed: "My lor! Bill we're hoodooed; there's nothing but water here." And both disappear ed in the woods muttering words of protest. Saturday the Watertowns downed the Oakvilles for the second time, but the game was a listless one, nearly every man upon the team making three or four errors. Four of the reg ular players were absent. The game was called at 3:30 with Watterworth of the Y. M. C. A. as umpire. The crowd clamored continuously for Jack McGowan, the old time umpire, who had rendered such excellent service in other clays, tut Mr McGowan refused to officiate. The score stood at the conclusion 10 to 11 in favor of our team. Mr Colliejan informed the reporter this morning that ho had been a news dealer between this place and Water bury for ten years. During this time Mr Colligan has built up an extensive trade and handles more newspapers than any other man in town. Every body knows him along the route. His genial smile, cheery words of greeting and friendly disposition serve to make him a friend to both young and old. Advertised letters at the postofflce this week are as follows: Miss Brewer, care G. A. Bend; Miss Ellen Martin, care Rev Oliver Hutchinson; Misses Vinton, Miss Mary L. Tower, care Walter Atwood; Mrs Robert H. Web ster, W. L. Raskin, Charley Lears, box ",60. This last is held by the post master as there are no boxes reaching that number. The rules established by the town health officer, Walter S. Munser, in re gard to imperfect drainage or sewer age, and containing regulations gov arning garbage, vaults, cesspools and drains can be found on the public sign post. Miss Isabel Dennin, of New York city, a singer of considerable ability, is making a short stay with Miss Downey, of the East Side district. Allen Johnson, of New York, spent Sunday with his mother, Mrs C. W. Johnson, of this place. Mr and Mrs Olen Brewster, of New Jersey, are visiting with N. B. Miller. Robert Woods has purchased a Col umbia bicycle of the Magee agency. Mr and Mrs Earl Bunnell are receiv ing congratulations. It is a girl. A son was born to Mr and Mrs Alton Cushman last week. LAST OF THE WILD BIRDS. 1 C?"iex Are Being Exterminated AH Over tlie World. The Smithsonian Institution sounds anoteof alarm. It declares that civilized man is sweeping the wild birds off the i face of thr earth at such a rate that ! before long hardly any species of feath I ered creatures will survive save those I which are domesticated. The next few i years must witness the extinction of I many species already becoming rare, while during the last quarter of a cen tury scores of other species have been totally extirpated. Thus is threatened a great change in the fauna of the i world a change that is only too apt i to be attended by results most dam ! aging to the interests of mankind, j ; Take, for example, that wonderful j bird called the "rhea," which repre ; sents the ostrich on the American con I tinent. Though already becoming rare, j the eurvivors of this magnificent spe- cieB are being hunted systematically in Argentina and North Patagonia for ! tthe sake of their feathers. And what , do you suppose the long and handsome ! feathers are used for? For millinery ? ) Not a bit ol it. They are employed j iin the manufacture of feather dust ; ecs. Thus it appears that one of the i most beautiful creatures placed on the earth by a beneficent Creator for the benefit and admiration" of mankind is to be destroyed forever for the sake of cheapening the production of feather i dusters. , The famous Labrador duck used to ', be common enough in the markets of I the United States, migrating in winter as far south as New England. In sum mer it was plentiful along the Labrador coast and about the mouth of the St. Lawrence river. Like the eider duck, to which it was allied, it bred on rocky islets, where it was safe from ifoxes and other carnivorous quadru peds. But sportsmen visited the islets annually and destroyed the breeding birds wholesale. They had no asylum to turn to, the shore of the mainland being infested by four-footed enemies, and the result was inevitable. The well-known Carolina paroquets, the only parrots native to the United States, are near to final extinction. Formerly they ranged all over the east ern part of this country, as far north as New York and westward to Texas. At present the feww survivors are con fined to remote parts of southern Flor ida and the Indian territory. The spe cies has been wiped out in a most ruth less and wanton manner. These little birds sleep inside of hollow stumps, hanging by their beaks, which are stuok into crevices. A while ago the so-called "passenger pigeon" flew by millions in the Ohio valley as far east as Massachusetts. Now only a few o them are left. They have been shot by wholesale, and while they lasted were commonly utilized for shooting from traps. Boston Transcript. NEW TRICK TO DRAW TRADE, Good-rir. "Good-by!" we say, hand clasped in hand.

REMARKABLE CURE, CHRONIC DIARRHOEA. In 1862, when I served my country as a private in Co A, 167th Pennslyvania Volunteers, I contracted a chronic di arrhoea. It has given me a great deal of trouble ever since. I have tried a dozen different medicines and several prominent doctors without any perma nent relief. Not long ago a friend sent me a sample bottle of Chamber lain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and after that I bought and took a fifty cent bottle; and now I can say that I am entirely cured. I cannot be thankful enough to you for this great remedy, and recommend it to all suffering veterans. If in doubt write me. Yours gratefully, Henry Stein berger, Allentown, Pa. Sold bv H. W.

On a street oft one of the main thor oughfares a plainly-clad young- matt stood gazing- into the window of a shoe shop. A messenger boy, thinking the object of the young man's attention must be something worth seeing, stopped and gazed, too. The pair were joined by a clerk on his way to lunch, and presently quite a little crowd had' swarmed up. There was nothing spe cial to eee, after all; just tiers of com monplace shoes, with labels announcing their prices. As fast as the people in the crowd found that it wasn't one of those idiotic mechanical toy monkeys, or a live sparrow the latter is a great curiosity in a window they passed on. One or two, perhaps, went into the 6hop for further inspection of some pair of shoes that had caught their f ancy. The young man waited until the crowd had quite melted away. Then he strolled on to the next corner. A strag gling group of men turned past him and toward the ehoeshop. He overtook them and walked briskly until he reached the window that seemed to at tract him. There he stopped, short and began to gaze at the shoes with an earnestness that was conspicuous. Every one of the crowd following paused to investigate the attraction. One of them went into the store to look further. The rest went on, the young man with them aa far as the corner. A dozen times an hour, all through that afternoon, was the performance 'repeated. At six o'clock the youth him self entered the etore. "Everything satisfactory, I hope?" he said to the well-dressed man near the door. "Quite go. Come again to-morrow," was the answer. And the well-dressed individual handed the youth a large, white coin. Chicago Times-Herald. What He Waa Good For. "Why do they keep that old man around here?" inquired the porter's friend, superciliously, observing an aged individual in shirt sleeves, who sat scribbling at a desk. "What's he good for?"
