A motorcycle, on which two soldiers from New York city were riding, made a rather perilous trip across the state road bridge over the river, on the roaii to Coventry Saturday .evening.

It waa a poor and un frequented road, in this section of the etate, or which they could travel three miles without being held up by state guards, police or other officials and asked aa to the urgency of thair business. Some had goad encases; others did not; in fact, same that were out with ears offered explanations that would make a horse laugh-if horses laughed ana looked and aeted as if they ex pected the officials to believe what they 6ai(J. A few, of course, had good excuses lor usmg their cars, ana in cluded in this number were the drivers who had permits to take their ma chines to Lebanon, to the patriotic pil grimage. , The numbers of all machines that were oat without apparent good cause were taken by those who Bad eharge of the work of keeping tabs on drivers, but what will be done about the mat ter remains ta fee seen. One effect has been achieved, how ever, and that ia te convince the aver age driver, who hadn't previously real ized it, that a good Ameriean isn't usins gasoline on Sundays now, un less in ea3e' of urgent necessity; neither does a good sport, which should cover all of the people of the allied countries, a,t least. The gasoline slackers yesterday were much less numerous than on the previous Sunday. Many hafl yielded, from the week before, to the pressure of public opinion. It is safe to assert that the automobile traffic through Danielson was reduced on Sunday by frnm 95 to 3S per cent, from normal, which is a splendid showing. "Goins to visit a sick friend in the hospital " "After milk for a sick baby "Papa's eow is ill," "Sister sent me down to see if the styles have changed." were some, or as reasonably such, of the excuses that were offered by those wlio persisted in using cars on flimsy preJexts. One car that was held up in Dan ielson was en route, the driver said from Maine to Now Jersey, "on urgent business." The driver didn't explain further. A motorcyclist held up here was en route from Philadelphia to Woonsccket, his home town. He had been stopped 43 times between Stam ford and Danielson, he said, and was beginning te get peeved-about it. It hadn't occurred to him at all that he was entirely to blame for being out with his machine on Sunday. He was inclined to be impudent, withall, so his number was taken by Chief Grirashaw and more may be heard of the case later.

About 100 men were at Phillips grove on the north shore or Alexan- ers lake Sunday for the annual clam bake of the Danielson Firemen's asso ciation. Notwithstanding the fact that ain threatened throughout the day, and came down in showers at times, the outing was one of the most en joyable anj successful of the whole series that hap been held in the past decade. The bake, arranged by W. A. Whipple and staff, was served about 30 o clock, and was excellent one et the very best of the year, Everything came to the tables piping hat and plendidly cooked and the manner in which the good things were put away by the hungry men might disturb such a food Conservator as Herbert Hcover. Amusements of various kinds served to keep the firemen and their guests interested every ifiinnte of the day. Music was by the Goodyear Military band, which was complimented upon its program and upon the singing of its members. . Chief A. P.

Judge Geissler said that he would welcome to this meeting regis trars net only of Putnam, but of eth er towns! t The order that brewing shall cease on December 1 was received with very special interest in this city. Inter views with Putnam men on Saturday produce a variety of opinion as to what effect, if any, that the order will have on the license vete in Putnam. The majority of those talked to feel, of course, that the order will discir-" age the liquor men in greater or less er degree, but the license men are a unit in declaring that Putnam will re main in the "wet" eolumn through an other year, or such part of a year as the sale of liquor is legally permit ted Drivers that were Out with cars on Sunday were held up regularly in and about Putnam and given the oppor tunity to demonstrate that they were oat upon urgent and necessary busi ness.
