BRADSTREET, Trustees. A Tie Merchants' Association Would Like Excursion Tickets Issued. New Haven, Sept 15. It was learned to-day that at a recent meeting ot the New England Passenger association in Boston important action was taken concerning the issuance of round trip excursion tickets via Boston to New York in connection with enterprises contemplated by the Merchants' asso ciation of New York. William b King, president of the Merchants' as sociation, was accorded a hearing at this meeting and spoke at length upon the aims and objects of his association the methods adopted to create new business and the protective features which womd confine to bona lida mer chants and buyers in good standing any railroad concessions which might be authorized. Mr King asked that the roads in the east issue round trip tickets via Boston to New York, say from September loth to 20th inclusive, and November 2nd to 6th inclusive; tickets good to return twenty days from date of sale. It was the sense of the association that from a mercantile standpoint, Mi- King's methods were thoroughly busi nesslike, and the request was given long and careful consideration. A ma jority of the members, however, be lieved it would be inexpedient for the association to take action that could in any way be construed as according a preference to any particular commer cial center, and the matter was left in that way. At the executive offices of the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad company in this city it was stated that such action was favorably received, it being th,e uniform policy or tne company not to discriminate In favor of any particular center.

Some of the tests are very remarkable and the ludicrous ac tions oi tne young men on the stage created roars of laughter. To-night will be an eventful one, for at 10 o'clock the young man who is still sleeping in Colby's shoe store window will be brought to the opera house and awakened on the stage. CHOPS HAVE ADVANCED. The Warm Weather of Last Week Ben efitted the I'armers. The week past has given abundant sunshine, very little precipitation, and three days of summer heat; in conse quence late fall, field and gai-dt-a crops have advanced rap dly. Harvesting has been conducted under mo it favor able conditions. Such corn as had vi tality enough to be benefitted has iin-p-oved wonderfully, itiid the prospects for this crop are muoj nj 5 encouvag- ing. Nearly all field cr;ys, except corn have now arrived at a state of matu rity. A very larga amount of rcwwi has been secured, making tho an.cuut of forage for winrsr fully equal to anv previous year. Corn cutting is now quite general, prospects of late pieces maturing weliJ Potatoes turn out to be even poorer than expected; many farmers hava not enough for family use. Peaches are so plentiful as to overstock local markets. Feed in pastures abundant. Grapes will fall short of an average crop. Ap ples ripening early and dropping badly. Red varieties are coloring well. Wells and streams are lower than at any time since mid July. The Association Ted. The Association Test is thus describ ed in the book recently published by the Massachusetts Society of Sons of the American Revolution: "AU through this formative period we find the people, in various places, asso ciating themselves for purposes of sup port and co-operation. The first for mal method of securing action, how ever, was by the legislative enactment which is shown in the Association Test. In the troubled days of the out break of the Revolutionary War tha patriot people of Massachusetts felt, as never before, the deeire to dra more nearly together in common sup port, and to separate those in all tha towns who still remained loyal to the crown . from those who had made up their minds to be free. Such action aa was taken was decided and definite. The signature to such a test marked the writer as a true patriot, if success followed the struggle for freedom, as disinctly as it placed the halter round his neok if such struggle was not suc cessful. With a full knowledge of this alternative, the Council of Massachu setts,, in February, 1776, took the ac tion which is indicated in their records." Foui--l.e$js;e4 Traders. There is a mouse in Florida locallj known as 'the trading mouse. It is commonly a woods mouse, but it quick ly adapts itself to human habitation. A colony of such mice carried two bush els of shelled beans thirty feet durina 6ix nights "recently and replaced the beans witih seed pods of a weed. Jew elry, too, has been tiaJten by these lit tle traders, says the New York Sun. One woman on the East Coast of Flor ida at an Indian River winter resort found a number of seed instead of a pair of earrtags that she had left on the bureau. A search in the place where the seeds had been taken dis closed the earrings. A man who had a box of pokei chips in his room in an open-topped box was surprised to find in their stead a string of prayer beads, a small cruci fix and a number of shells. He started an investigation immediately. A priest who had roomed near by was equally puzzled by finding the colored poker chips in his room. It is gener ally believed that the .trading mouse learns its curious ways by robbing squirrels or blue Jays of nuts laid by for future use. BBOOKLYHJBIEFS, WHO WILL SUCCEED COLLECTOR GEORGE SEGEARS, That Is the Question That Is Now Troubling the South Broolyn People The Matter Will Come XJp For Con sideration Shortly. Mr and Mrs John J. McAuliffe, ot 610 Bank street, are receivine consrrat. uiauuuB. it is a uoy. Talk about politics in the affair of the town, city and school govern ments, but it is not a circumstance compared to things in this line i& South Brooklyn, where every man asking his neighbor if he knows who the town school board will elect to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Collector Segears. No one seems ta know who will get the plum, and what makes the situation all the more pui zling is that it is said no one wants tha position. There is only about S25 la the thing for the collector and tha amount of dunning he has to do before he gets the taxes is a caution. - "Do you know what I would do," asked a South Brooklyn man of a reporter ot the "Democrat" this morning, "if I had, the appointing of a man to fill that vacancy ?" Being answered in the neg. ative he said: "I'd give the office ta John Mraz. His insulting language at the meeting of a couple of weeks ago is, the principal reason why George Se-. gears resigned, and I don't see any way you could punish him better than by aDDOintine him to collent tha ta-ras " Ex-Collector Wilton has not yet re ceived his pay and it is not likely that he will get the whole of it without re sorting to law. It is alleged that tha collector found it necessary to consult an atorney in relation to the colection. of taxes and that the counsel's fees are, in excess of the colector's salary, and naturally enough he wants the district to help him out of the dilemma, but some of them declare tjiat tbey won't do it. ' m mi t : it, m r ruin ,-,-i.ttt. I inn vaAJn, j uuiiiwsmr , Is Causing Considerable Discussion Throughout the State. There have been so many wild guess es in the newspapers of the state as to the exact time and method of filling the vacancy on the bench of the Con necticut supreme court caused by the death of Judge Augustus H. Fenn ot Winsted, that lawyers generally are amused at the situation.. The New Ha- ven Palladium yesterday said that tha vacancy must remain until the legisla ture meets in 1S9D as an amendment to the constitution of the state provide that judges of the supreme court shall, be chosen by the general assembly al ter appointment by the governor, Jt also showed that the act passed by the present legislature providing that the governor might fill vacancies in cer-s tain offices, did not apply to the su preme court bench. Tne contention has been made, however, that the gov ernor could appoint a judge tempora rily who would hold office until the leg islature meets, when the appointment would be made permanent. f The only provision of the statutes of the state which- applies to the case in point is Section 821, which reads as follows: "The parties, (to a cause) respective ly, shall, in all cases, have a right to be heard by a full court; and it any judge is absent and such right is claim ed, or if any judge is absent or dis qualified, and the disqualification is not waived in the manner presented in me succeeuiug section, tne cniei jus tice, or in case of his absence or dis qualification, the senior, judge present and qualified, may summon one or more of the judges of the . superior irtiii-t tn ponatitnt a full ontirt wrin shall attend and act as judges of "tha supreme court of errors for tbe time being." ' , Thus while the chief justice or the senior judge, may, from time to time call in a judge of the superior court to act, it by no means follows that it wlU be the same judge. John S. Fowler, assistant , clerk of the superior court, who is, .as conver sant as anyone with the practice in the supreme court, when seen yesterday afternoon in reference . to the matter, said: "All the talk about the governor appointing to fill the vacancy is all wrong. The vacancy must remain open until a new judge is appointed by the governor and that appointment is confirmed by the general assembly. Chief Justice Andrews may call any of the judges of the superior court to make a full bench, however. This has happened continually where one of the judges has disqualified. If I remember correctly every judge now on the su perior court bench has acted in the ca pacity of supreme court judge at soma time or another. The calling of any particular judge to fill out the bench at the October term will have no special significance. That judge is usually noil arl M-Vi i- fin net O'jci 1 V fPf 9 WD V from his ordinary duties." Insuring Dog. " A novel insurance company has been organized, and is already doing a large business in Chicago insuring dogs against loss, stealing or impound ing. This is done by registering the dog with this company, with its full description, and receiving a tag to be worn with the city license tag. The company has a man at each pound to release any dog bearing such a tag, and return 1$. immediately to the owner. This is a great advantage, as dogs of ten contract diseases in such a place. It also saves both dog and owner much misery, anxiety and trouble, to say nothing of the expense and tiresome traveling and red tape which are nec essary to rescue a dog from tlie pond. WHAT DO Till) CHILDREN DRINK? Don't give them tea or coffee. ' Have you tried the new food dirnk called Grain-C? It is delicious and nourish ing and taxes the place of coffee. The more Grain-O you give the children the more health you distribute through their systems. Grain-O is made of pure grains, and when properly pre pared tastes like the choice, grades of coffee, but costs about V as much. Ait grocers sell it. 15c and 25c.
