N. D. WEBSTER, Treaa.
He was a physician who brought sun
shine and good cheer to every sick
room visited, was careful and gentle in
manner, making a ' largo number ol
friends among those who called upon
him for aid in time of illness.
Dr. Hills, who was a direct descend
ant of William Hills, one of the found
ers of Hartford, was born at Lovell,
Me., May 12, 1839. His father was the
Rev. Israel Hills, who died at Bolton,
Sept. 6, 1874, and was buried in Willi
mantic cemetery. Rev, Mr. Hills had
been a clergyman of distinction, in
Maine, and the doctor came from that
state with him, locating in Bolton in
1854, the elder Hills' health having be
come impaired after twenty-flve years
of confining ecclesiastical work.
Dr. Hills prepared for college at
East Windsor Hill academy, and hav
ing decided upon his life work, went to
Staffordville and put in nine months'
study with Dr. S. F. Pomeroy, who lat
er moved to Springfield, Mass. Dr.
Hills entered Yale Medical school, nd
at the end of the first course of lec
tures became office assistant to Dr. P.
A. Jewett and Dr. T. B. Townsend, em
inent surgeons, with offices1 at the Ton
tine hotel. Dr. Jewett was a professor
of midwifery and diseases of women at
lale, and both he and Dr. Townsend
had had large experience in surgical
work. Dr. Jewett was in charge of the
Knight military hospital at New Ha7
ven and Dr. Hills was his assistant
there. Thus Dr. Hills had a most ex
cellent opportunity of securing valuable
surgical training, an experience that
was later put to a most worthy use.
October 27. 1S62. Dr. Hills received
his appointment as assistant surgeon
in the Twenty-seventh Connecticut
volunteers at New Haven, and with
that regiment saw active service, and
was highly complimented for his work
at Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and
Gettysburg. At the first named place
tients brought in by the ambulance
korps. The last patient was taken
across me ttappananr ock river ivionat-y
night to the general hospital. At 3
o'clock the following morning orders
were received to move on, and then
ithe brave little band of three surgeons.
ithree hospital stewards and three am-
bulance drivers, started across -the
pontoon bridge, that was destroyed be
hind them.
Dr. Hills was dismissed from the
service February 2, 183. In that year
he received his medical degree and
started for Norfolk. Va., in answer to a
call from the mayor of that city for
physicians. He locked his office door at
Norfolk in May, 1S64, and became chief
surgeon and agent for Drs. Brown and
Alexander, government embalmers to
armies operating against Richmond. He
opened at office for them at Bermuda
Hundred, City Point, and later went
near the Petersburg front.
On the day of the fall of Richmond
Dr. Hills, having made up his mind to
locate there, accepted an invitation to
rrom Bermuda Hundred to the fall
!en capital of the Confederacy, on th
over torpedoes, through obstructing
Bpillng, between 'sunken ves-els, and
past the recently destroyed monitors
of the Confederacy.
Dr. Hiiis was engaged in private
practice in Richmond for a year, and
was connected with Freedmen's bureau,
having charge of the Chimborazo hos
pital. Becoming dissatisfied with those
lately in the rebellion because of their
I spirit, he left the south and came to
I Willimantic, and had since resided
here.
Dr. Hills was a member of the Wind
;ham County Medical society, and in
l8i7 was president of tho Connecticut
Medical society. His daughter, who is

Thomas, who died at Baltimore in
18!8; William Morton, who died in this
city in 1886: Mary Lucinda, now I.Irs.
Dickerson G. Baker, and Dr. Laura
Heath Hills, both of this city.
Politically the doctor was always a
republican. He cast his first vote for
Abraham Lincoln, and he took great
interest in the party's success.
Dr. Hills had two" grandchildren, the
children of Mr. and Mrs. D. G. Baker.
He was a member of the First Congre
gational church and the Willimantic
board of trade. One of his hobbies
was history, particularly tho history of
this town and state, and he possessed
a large collection of historical books
and documents. Gardening and horti
culture also came in for considerable
attention, the doctor having had a tine
garden Just north of Bolivia street for
a number of years, where he spent
much of his time when pot engaged in
his professional duties. He owned a
large orange grove in the south, where
he passed a number of winters. He
was one of the best read men in the
city, thoroughly posted on topics of the
day, and having an excellent knowledge
or many or the deeper scientific sub
jects. He was universally known for
has genial courtesy and charity that
was far-reaching and Judiciously dis
pensed. An Associate's Tribute.
An associate pays him this tribute:
Thomas Morton Hills was the dean
of the medical profession of this vi
cinity, having been a permanent resi
dent here since 1866. in the uninter
rupted pursuit of his chosen profession.
He has made a specialty cf gyneciol-

was especially noted for his inventive
suo.ess and genius, having made many
kinds of splints and surgical dressings,
in his own workshop and under his
personal supervision.
He was a member of the County,
State and American Medical associa
tions and the Willimantic City Medical
society. He was president of the Con
necticut State Medical society in 1887.
He was wedded to his profession rath
er tluin to social life, but was public
spirited locally in many ways to his
fellow townsmen. He was of high
standing professionally, of excellent
character and dlscreat Judgment In his
daily Intercourse with his associates.
Naturally endowed with a pleasing
manner, a commanding physique and a
gentlemanlv presence, these all render
ed more striking the charms of his per
sonality. "A whiter soul, a fairer mind.
A life with purer course and aim,
A gentler eye a voice most kind.
We may not look on earth to find
The love that lingers o'er his name
Is paramount.and more than fame."

Deep Interest in County Caucus at
Hartford Tomorrow Booming ex
Mayor Fuller for City Court Judge
Prosperous Year in St. Mary's
Parish.
There will be a lively caucus at
Hartford tomorrow (Tuesday) when
the republican senators and represent
atives from Windham county will con
vene to nominate a candidate for the
vacancy to occur In the board of coun
ty commissioners. E. H. Cortiss of
Thompson is a candidate to succeed
himself and the indications at present
are that the fight will be principally
between Mr. Cortiss and Leon T. Wil
son ef this city. Other candidates for
the place are W. P. Kelley of Day
ville and George O. Brown of Daniel
son, and Oliver Hitchcock of Wood
stock. Mr. Wilson has been making
a very active canvass around the coun
ty. Mr. Cortiss may be depended on
to make a hot tight for reappointment.
All the candidates have been pledged
some portion of the twenty-one votes
In the county and if there should hap
pen to. be no choice on the first ballot
it may. take several more to decide the
matter1. Several of those entitled to
vote have, it Is believed, made no
pledge or promise to support any of
the candidates. Mr. Cortiss will com
plete his third term in July and has
made an excellent record. The argu
ments advanced against hi3 re-election
are to the general effect that
twelve years of service are sufficient
for one man.
NEW CITY JUDGE
And Assistant Judge Desired by One
Local Faction.
There was a quiet meeting In this
city Saturday morning which was at
tended by a group of citizens, for the
most part prominent, to consider in
troducing a resolution in the legisla
ture recommending; ex-Mayor L. H.
Fuller for appointment as Judge of
the city court to succeed the present
incumbent, Judge F. K. Russell, and
also recommending the appointment
of Attorney M. H. Geiisler to be as
sistant Judge, succeeding I H. Fuller.
The resolution will probably be pre
sented, as will also one recommend
ing that Judge F. w. Russell be re
appointed. The incident is looked up
on by many as a bit of political play
between local factions. There was lit
tle said about the meeting in advance
and only a few besides those invited
to attend were aware of the gather
ing, which was held In the select
men's rooms in the Union block. A
prominent citizen said Saturday that
he believed that Judge Russell, whose
term does not expire until January il
10, would be reappointed.
Transplanting Big Trees at Pomfret.
At Pomfret street this cold weather
and frozen ground are being taken
advantage of as favorable assets for
assisting in the transplanting of dozens
of big trees that cannot be safely
moved at any other time of year.
The trees are being moved to more
desirable locations about Pomfret
school, and on some of the fine coun
try estates of New York and Washing
ton residents, who spend their sum
mers at Pomfret. Some of the trees
moved are a foot In diameter, and fifty
feet high. The method employed is to
cut a circle of liberal diameter about
the tree. A trench is then dug around
the circumference of the circle, allow
ing the excavators to pry under the
roots and free the tree from its fasten
ings in the ground. The frozen earth
clings about and protects the roots
while the tree 13 being lifted out of
its original place and moved on a drag
to its new location where a hole has
been dug for its reception. Supported
by guy3, the tree Is carefully manoeu
vred into the new station, new earth
solidly packed about such parts of the
roots as may be exnosed and the work
completed by carefully restoring the
turf surface.

brated in Odd Fellows' hall by a party
of loyal Scots and a few guests. The
proceedings opened with a line ban
quet, on the table being many dishes
peculiar to the Land o' Cakes.
After cigars were lighted the re
mainder of an enjoyable evening was
spent In song and toast. At 11.45
Auld Lang Syne was sung by all pres
ent, closing the evening's festivities.
Sunday afternoon a union meeting
of the Christian Endeavor societies of
Jewett City, Pachaug and Lisbon was
held in the Congregational ' church.
Rev. E. W. Potter, pastor of the Bap
tist church, conducted the service,
which was opened by a praise service
led by the choir. Mr. Potter read the
Scriptures from Eph. 6 and Rev. W. H.
Gane offered prayer. Rev. C. K. Flan
ders sang most impressively His Eye
on the Sparrow.
President Mansfield Speaks.
Mr. Potter Introduced J. H. Mans
field, state president of the Connecti
cut Christian Endeavor union. He
drew attention to tho fact that funds
will be needed to help erect the build
ing for this work at an early date and
spoke of the convention at St. Paul
In July and the observance of Chris
tian Endeavor day February 7. Ha
emphasized what he was to say by de
claring the Christian Endeavor cannot
be separated from the church.
His topic was How Can I Help Make
the Work of My Society More Effec
tive? First, certainly not by unjust
criticism. The society's plan is within
the church. It may be Improved but
never abolished. It is a living, draw
ing, developing movement, adapted to
the needs of any church. It depends
greatly on the atmosphere with which
it is surrounded. Christian Endeavor
Is not thecause of religious Indiffer
ence. It needs more enthusiastic sup
port from pastors, churches and par
ents. As the Sunday school Is for teaching,
so is the C. E. society for training. It
Is a training school fur the church.
It directs the surplus energy of the
young people. Its principle, which is
devotion to Christ and the church. Is
sound. No organization can seem as
a substitute for individual activity.
March with the closest fellowship with
the Master, and do what each one be
lieves Is God's will.
Things Needful.
In order to do the best work, some
things are necessary. First, fellow
ship with the Christ; second, know the
living book, God's Word. It is essen
tial to the best life. Third, live up to
the prayer meeting covenant pledge.
Fourth, a faith that the true worker
has in God. 1 he future of the church
is In the Christian Endeavor society
of today, In the boys and girls. The
future of Christian Endeavor depends
on the Individual life.
To have a part in the upbulldln-r of
a church, spiritually. Is a great privi
lege. Training is of no real value, un
less used. Form large plans and carry
them out. There is no complete serv
ice without some sacrifice. Rigid dis
cipline makes good soldiers. Keep the
Ideals high and strive to live up to
them.
Junior Department Valuable.
He asked "How to get the young
people to Join the socletv?" and
thought the best way was to have a
Junior Endeavor society, where the
children are trained for Christian En
deavor. Place upon the members some
responsibility. Each one should prog
ress spiritually, not merely "hold their
own." The Saviour-hood of Christ
means service to humanity. Don't
wait for something to turn ur turn
it up. Be cordial to newcomers visit
the shut-ins, offer services to the Sun.
day school superintendent, go to the
pastor and offer to do what no one
else will do. Christian Endeavor is a
means to an end. Be loyal to the pas
tor, and awake to responsibility. In
terest yourself In any form of work
that will interest young people. Make
the prayer meeting Interesting, and do
not go without preparation. Plan, pray
and participate. No one can do the
best work unless his life Is wrought
into the life of Christ. There is no
radiance without, unless there is radi
ance within. Introduce new blood and
develop new methods. Be real, earn
est and loyal. The world needs not so
much logic as it does loyalty. Do not
measure yourself by someone else's
pattern. Create skill and experience.
Do not be afraid of enthusiasm. Keep
step with the Master.
His closing admonition was stand in
your place and help lift.
Rev. Mr. Potter closed the service
by quoting a remark made by Dr. Klnr
of Oberlin college: "Everyone has
some work in the world which he can
do better than anyone else."

Ordinary naphtha soap is yellow.
The principal ingredient is rosin.
Rosin is used because it is cheap.
It makes a profuse suds, but that sua
has little value as a cleanser.
Clothes washed with ordinary naph.
tha soaps are also clean and white, but
it takes more soap, more time and more
effort to accomplish the same results.
A cake of ordinary naphtha soap is
not as hard as a cake of P. Sc G. Naph
tha Soap. It does not last as long;
nor does it do as much work.
Manufacturers of ordinary naphtha
soaps will tell you their soap is "just
as good" as P. & G. Naphtha Soap.
They cannot truthfully say it is better.
The price of ordinary naphtha soap
is 5 cents a cake.
