SCHOOL BOARD ISSUES PERMIT Allows St., Paul's, Church Corporation Prlvilego of Using Water From Ken sington Grammar School -Every Members Canvass Endorsed. ' Mystery surrounds the origin of the spectacular ? fire; vlast anight .phlch totally destroyed a valuable house on Gladding. Place, Kensington, i the property or uonsta Die Lewis Bradbury. While no definite clues have, as yet, been .uncovered, the owner feels that the blaze was the work pf , incen diaries. .He . estimates . his loss at be- - tween $2,500 and $3,000, most . of which was covered by Insurance. ' As, Charles Hotchkiss, a neighbor, vas proceeding to his home i shortly after: 10:30 o'clock, he noticed a fiTe which has been vacant since the first of this month. Upon perceiving that a lively blaze was burning , in the woodshed at the rear of the structure, he immediately, notified Mr, Bradbury, . who, with many other residents hur ried to the scene to fight the Are. They were tod late, however, for t cottage jvas then a seething mass o flames which could be seen for miles TKsija in ' fiflvinp tVifi ham cinrl T.,-A Willard I. Ailing' s house, r which is situated but a short distance away. Mr, Alllng's residenco was severely threatened several times, but a spray, pump was kept at work and after midnight the danger was passed. , The ruins continued to burn until 2:30 a. in., when Mr: Bradbury returned . home.- t - . . ..." i-. "There was nothing whatever in -the woodshed which could have start led the fire," said Mr. Bradbury in an interview with a Herald man this morning, . "and I feel sure that the blaze was set." When . asked as to whom he suspected, the constable de clined to state, answering: : "In a case like this we've, got a right to form c opinions, but it is not ante io make any statements." He assetled, how ever,, that he was at the house about g o'clock in the evening and that everything was in the best of , con dition at that time. He spent much time in the woodshed, which, was built right onto the rear of the house, . and 3s certain that no combustible material., -was there, not even . any V wood. i'The entire place was cleaned thoroughly last Saturday," said Mr. Bradbury, "for. I have just had the uuituiiis icvicu, yta,ytu& oprctai at tention to . the rebuilding of the ' floors."-1: ., Had It not been for the fact that the well was, located in the woodshed, volunteers could have fought the Are, but as' Jt. was no water was im- . Vnedtately i, available. The razed building was erected sev eral years ago by Levi Gladding, de WORK OF FIRE BUGS ceased, who willed it. to; Mr, Bradbury, his nephew. - Paper Hanger Disappointed. Probably the most surprised man in this , town this morning "was A. G. Lane, the Berlin paper hanger. He knew nothing, of last night's disas trous blaze until 8 o'clock this morn ing when he arrived on the premises to paper some rooms in the burned structure. Rolls of paper, which he was " to have used today, were con sumed in the fire. Church Allowed Use of Water. . ' At a meeting of- the town school committee ? held last .evening in the town clerk's office it was resolved for mally to allow St. Paul's church cor poration, the use of the water in the artesian well at the Kensington Grammar school. The resolution as drawn up by Judge B. F. Gaffney of New Britain and adopted by the board is as follows: "Resolved, That permission .be and is hereby given to St. Paul's church corporation, at its own expense, to connect and use water from the ! Grammar school in Kensington. This permission, however, is revocable at any time at the option of ' this board. The use of water under this privilege must not be such as to injure, dimin ish or conflict' with the , use of the water by the Grammar school or the school district. It is expressly un derstood 'that no rights have or shall be acquired by the Church corpora tion or congregation because of such water, in past or future." As may readily be seen, this agree ment, does not place the school com mittee .under any obligations to the church j corporation. If it did, the board would be exceeding its author ity in the matter. I Since the work of construction be gan at St. Paul's . new church, the contractors have had the. use of the. waters at the school. A verbal agree-. , ment was made several months ago which allowed them this privilege and lived in-the house, several were re-' decided upon, the Church corporation sent Town , Treasurer Shaw a check for twenty-five dollars a short time agoiJ.o help cover the .cost of oper-( ating the ' pumps and other machin ery. , It is expected that the church will pay the town this money each' year, but definite provision in this respect would oblige the committee to enter into a contract with the church, which is not desired. The well at the Kensington Gram mar school is said to contain an end less supply of water and there 13 plenty for the needs of . both the school arid church. A number of bills were approved and ordered paid at last night's ses sion. , " : .' '-, ' Another, meeting of ' the school board has been called for next Z?'rl- day evening, when the teachers' coira mittee will report, and make recom mendations for t the coming year. William W.

Goodrich, Berlin; Henry E Austin, Berlin: Julius E. Woodruff, Berlin and Andrew Law rence, East Berlin. Mr. Ritchie wishes to call atten tion to the danger of forest1 fires dur ing the spring months, and the neces sity for general co-operation with the PHOMPTLi fire wardens in preventing fires. The necessity for securing permits for burning brush is emphasized. ;. . The local fire warden has received copies of new cloth warning notices. They are entirely different "both in color and matter and will be posted in addition , to the old ' ones rather than 1 in the place of them. Keturns From Hospital. Mrs. ;E, W.

Pinkham's Veff etable Compound. Euphemia, Ohio.--"Because ot total ' ignorance of how to care for myself when verging into womanhood, and from taking cold when going to school, I suf fered from a displacement, and each month I had severe pains and nausea which always meant a lay-off from work for two to four days from the time I was 16 years old. "I went to Kansas to live with my sis ter and while there a doctor told me of, the Finkham remedies but I did not use them then as my faith in patent medi cines was limited. After my sister died I came home to Ohio to live and that has been my home for the last 18 years. "TheChange of Life came when I was 47 years old and about this time I saw my physical condition plainly described in one of your advertisements. Then I began using Lydia E. Pinkham's Veg etable Compound and I cannot tell you or any one the relief it gave me in the first three months. It put me right where I need not lay off every month and during the last 18 years I have not paid out two dollars to a doctor, and have been blest with excellent health forawo woman of my age and I can thank Lydia E.Pinkham'sVege table Compound for it. "Since the Change of Life is over I have been a maternity nurse and being wholly self-supporting I cannot over .estimate the value of good health. I have now earned a comfortable little home just by sewing and nursing. I have recommended the Compound to many with good results, as it is excel lent to take before and after child birth.

Fore Sale in New Britain, Conn by Riker-Hegeman Drug Store. tlve delegation from the Hardware city again this year. The increase to $2 in the price of tickets is explained by the committee as beinjg: made to keep down the de ficit as much as possible.
