TWO MEN IN GREEN EVILLE
Archibald Buchanan, Jr., and John
Spencer Resist Arrest Club Uaed on
Archibald Buchanan, Jr., who lives
at 35 Thirteenth street, and John
Spencer, who is his father-in-law, and
lives in Liabon, were arrested at Air.
Buchanan's home on Saturday about
midnight after both had been engaged
in a fight with Policeman Michael Car
roll in which the officer was roughly
used and Mr. Buchanan's head was
badly battered by the officer's club.
The policeman had a cut over one
ear which he claimed was done by a
blow from the stock of a whip which
was wielded by Mr. Spencer.
Mr. Buchanan is charged with In
toxication, breach of the peace and
resisting an officer, Mr. Spencer with
refusing to assist an officer and as
saulting an officer.
According to the charge made by the
policeman, the trouble started when he
spoke to Mr. Buchanan about making a
nuisance in the street. There was an
argument and when the policeman at
tempted to arrest Mr. Buchanan tho
officer called upon Mr. Spencer to as
sist. Instead he took part against the
officer, struck him with the whip, and
the two made such effectual resistance
that they drove the policeman oft to
get more help.
Meanwhile the men went to a doc
tor, where the wounds made on Mr.
Buchanan's head by the policeman's
club were bandaged up.
Sergeant Kane and Policeman Car
roll In an automobile searched for the
two men, but did not find them until
they had returned to Mr. Buchanan's
house from the doctor's.

STATE BUSINESS MEN.
Directors to Consider Important Mat
ters on Thursday. ,
That there will be a very important
meeting of the directors of the State
Business Men s association early this
month is a statement made toy Pres
ident Frank H. Johnston. The date
for this meeting has been definitely
settled for May 14. Matters of great
interest will be brought to the atten
tion of the directors at this tim with
expecial reference to the optional
charter bill which Is being drawn up
by the Bridgeport Business Men's as
sociation. The investigation, out of
which this bill springs, was made by
ex-President Vincent, for the Bridge
port association and has been most
complete. It is likely that the Bridge
port Business Men s association will
ask the aid of the state association to
make . a statewide campaign for the
adoption of this bill by the legisla
ture. Another matter coming up before
the directors will be that, of the ex
tension of the County Rural Improve
ment associations throughout the
state. New Lonffidon and Hartford
counties have already organised and
it is the wish of the State Business
Men's association that other counties
take up these organizations which will
bring the business men and farmers
into closer sympathy for the general
good of all.

Among some of the things that Cap
tain Wilbur said are the following:
Life is a hard fight, a trattle and a dif
ficult struggle. People ought to fight
for God and the church, and the Y. M.
C. A. wants fighters. Men with back
bone and strong hearts. Uncle Sam at
the present wants men of courage to
go to Mexico. Men will face the can
non's mouth, but they won't face the
great evils of this life that are ruining
the lives of our young people. We want
men in our country that are for right
eous and pure things and men that
will fight for all things that are good
and noble. If you do this you will have
the Christ with you. Fight for tho
church-and for the eternal life and
have faith. Fight for things that are
good and God will he with you.

the Yan'ic rlvera, which form the
Tnameo at thla city. Norwich, with
it quaint old landmarks and notable
for its beautiful homes" built upon
several elevated terraces, has been apt
ly caned "Tlia rose of New England."
Its public square, known as Frank
lin square, nestles in a hollow.- with
streets radiating In many directions.
Some follow the natural valleys be
tween the rocky hills, others boldly
climb their stony heights, while a few
run along the banks of tho three beau
tiful little rivers.
This city has much to lur-i tho
at ranger within its boundaries, or to
call him again and again to enjoy its
quaint loveliness. Those who . have
spent their childhood here have a lova
for it which grows in tho many trib
utes given in later life, not only by
erecting fine buildings, monuments,
and giving money, bat by the humble
stone seat, under a protecting tree, or
a gushing fountain of clear spreng wa
ter, or what is perhaps a still more
enduring offering, a heartfelt verse,
a glowing essay or an honest life.
Among the many famous men and wo
men who are proud to call this dear
old place home, are poets, statesmen,
teachers, men of financial prominence,
painters and essayists.
A stately mansion, on the sunny
side of a large opening of grassy lawn,
in the heart of the city, bears the name
of being the site of the birthplace of

Secrets of London
Famous London specialists who cater
to titled ladles and others of social
prominence employ a remarkable meth
od of complexion rejuvenation. One
undergoing this treatment visits the
beauty doctor late in the afternoon, has
something dabbed over her face, then,
heavily veiled, departs In her motor car.
This is repeated daily for a week or so,
when a complexion of snowy purity and
exquisite delicacy is In evidence. The
secret of this method Is ordinary mer
colized wax. Anyone can apply the
wax without aHslstHnce of a specialist.
An ounce of it costs very little at any
drug store (obtainable here as well as
in England). It is used like cold cream,
before retiring, and washed off morn
ings. Its success is due to a peculiar
absorbent property which gradually re
moves wornout particles of cuticle, re
vealing the younger, healthier skin be
neath. A wonderful wrinkle chaer, also in
vogue among Englishwomen, in pre
