Day Goodrich Gets Settlement. Ldterary Society An- nual Meeting. Mrs. . Sessions 111. After , negotiations of several : weeks,-"a deal" was consummated yes terday afternoon between Louie Lan za and the G. Prentice company, both of Kensington, for the purehase by the latter of a two story factory building belonging to the former which " is situated -xn New Britain road and occupied at present by the Prentice company. This, added , to : a large stHp of land obtained about a month ago-from the American Paper Goods company of Kensington, gives the JPrenice company all title ' to a parcel . of land which abuts at the east on the Berlin-New Britain divi- jsion of the New York, -New Haven and Hartford . railroad and at tfie west on New Britain road and having a depth of about 200 feet. The j Prentice company will not al- .ter its plans for the erection of an other factory on the site, however, and has awarded the contract for a $10,000 addition to the B. H. 1 Hib bard company of , New Britain, same to be erected and ready for occupancy within sixty working days. Ground will be broken for the foundation very, soon, probably next week, if the weather permits. The new factory building is to be of mill construction, 100 feet, by, forty feet and three i stories high. t The Hardware City firm has also contracted to construct a detached building for the housing of a 125 horsepower plant, which is to be in stalled by the Blgelow Boiler Works. t Officers of the Kensington firm feel that, to meet all their orders, it will be necessary to provide room for four times the present number of seventy-five employes. The Prentice company manufactures buckles. . 1 , Goodrich Get Cetllmm. A. B. Goodrich of Worthington ridge has triumphed at last over Sam Robington of New Britain, against - whom he brought legal proceedings r several months ago to recover a horse , and twenty-five dollars which he gave . in return for a "gold brick" in ! the form of a horse. Not only has his own horse and the twenty -flve dol lars been returned to him, but the New Britain man has been obliged to pay all lawyer's fees. Settlement was , made out- of court. It was in June of last year that Mr. Goodrich made a deal with Robing- j ton for the 'transfer of horses. The latter represented his horse to be Bound, fearless, a good worker and an -excellent driving horSe. Only one day was necessary for Mr. Goodrich to erceive that the equine possessed pne of these qualities, but was, . on Easter Suit Offer Trade in our Suit Depatment the past few weeks our stock in size and colorings in many of our We have grouped these lines together Easter clearance of .the entire lot, giving selec tion of women's and misses' suits that were priced $27.30 and $30.00, for only, each .... the contrary, decidedly spirited, and untrained. This was evidenced dis tinctly when the local man attempted to drive his new charge along Farm ington road? he shied upon meeting a trolley car, became utterly uncon trollable and smashed the valuable carriage to which he was harnessed. Mr. Goodrich went to Robington immediately and claimed that the deal was off. He had learned that a bruise which the latter contended the horse had sustained in transportation on the railroad, was nothing less than lameness, and demanded retraction. Robington "couldn't see it." He en gaged ,r Lawyers Saxe anl Hungerfordi of New Britain to fight his case against B. F. Gaffney, who was retained by the Bet Unite. The case was not as signed to the courts however until quite recently. It was to be heard in the . Hartford court of common pleas this week, but the defendant evidently saw that his case was weak for he offered settlement without further action. Mr. Goodrich fought for the prin ciple of the matter and he feels highly elated 'oyer , his success. , Warrantee Deed Filed. Town Clerk Shaw has received a warrantee deed recording the sale of George Beckett's place on Turnpike read to Theodore F. Clark of New Britain, brief mention of which was made In the Herald some time ago. The property In question is bounded on the north by land of C. J.
