Bailey's pasture opposite the house known as the Isaao John son nonge. xna ugntning seemed to run down the two branches without grazing them, to the body of the tree, throwing the scales from it to the distance of forty feet and splitting it as if a wedge had been driven into it and had' split above and below the wedge. Several persons were affected by the stroke, but not seriously. The following, . oopied from the Lowel Daily Courier, speaks well of an artiole made in their city: "Hood's Sarsaparilla is fast Browing into use and doing much good.

Could Sot Use Ills Razor. WlUlant H. Brampton Threatens to Kill H la Wire and Himself His Hash De sist Happily Prsventid. Yesterday morning William H. Brnmpton, formerly a conductor on the Consolidated road, and for the past few months engaged in keeping a livery stable at 169 Wooster street, called at police headquarters and asked Chief Webster if he could not see Detective Brewer. He told the chief that a great many people were robbing him, that he was losing valuable property and could not find out who the thieves were. Mr. Brumpton in sisted upon Mr. Brewer working np the ease, and the chief assured him that ha would re ceive a call from that officer. As soon as Mr. Brewer came in the chief told him of Mr. Brumpton' s request, and the detective went to see him. He did not find him, how. ever. In the afternoon a friend cf the Brumpton family called at the police headquarters. He said that Mr. Brumpton had attempted to kill his wife and then to slay him self. Mr. Brewer immediately hast ened to the residence, 169 Woos ter. He found Mr. Biumpton appar ently out of his head. He said nothing about killing himself. Mr. Brewer tried to induoe him to go np town with him. He made ex cuses and tried to get from the officer's pres ence. Finally Mr. Brnmpton was induced to walk up town, but when the Elliott House was reaobed he would go no further. Mr. Brewer then entered and asked Landlord Crane to telephone for the police wagon. Mr. Brumpton ordered bis friend Crane not to do it. But he did, and the polioe wagon soon responded with Officer Pickering. They induced Mr. Brnmpton to go with them. At the central office a razor was found on Mr. Brampton's clothing. He seemed dazed and not in his right mind but said little. As the officers did not dare allow him to go in his condition of mind, he was locked up for safe keeping. Many of his friends called and tried to secure his release. Mr. Brumpton was taken to the almshouse last night by the advice of Dr. Buiokholdt, who examined him. He was a conductor on the Consolidated road for about fifteen years, and for a long time kept a livery stable in conjunction with his railroad position. He is a very popular men and his friends deeply regret his present condition of mind. It is hoped that he will reoover speedily. To-day different arrangements will be made for his care. The Democratic Blowout. An Attempt to Get Up Knthusfaam For Cleveland and Hendricks A few Men and Plenty or Boyi In the Procession Last evening the Democrats made an at! tempt to get up an enthusiastic demonstra tion over the nomination of Cleveland and Hendricks for President and Vice-President of the United States. The city was scoured by the would be governmental office-holders and as a result money sufficient to hire a band, buy some red fire and paint a trans parency was procured. The transparency, whioh on its face represented a profile of Cleveland and having inscribed thereon "Cleveland Guard," was borne aloft by a former policy ticket agent who was appar' sntly anxious that he should be recognized as the first man to carry a transparency in this campaign. The paraders were made up of about fifty men and four times the number of small boys who fired off .Roman candles and red fire to their hearts' content. They marohed around to ex-Senator Bowers' residence and that gentleman made them a spread eagle speech. Then after perambu lating through various other streets tbey brought up on Cbapel street under a half completed banner stretched from Whittlesey'a building to Mitohell's building. Here a halt was made and Colin M. Ingersoll from a window in Mitchell s building made a speech to the hundreds of voters (?) ia the street. The speaker spoke with confidence regarding the success of the Democratic ticket, and assured his listeners that the eagle of victory was about to perch upon the banner of De- mooraoy. The march was again taken up and after parading tnrougn several side streets Chapel street was again reached and a halt was made in front of the Register office. A full fledged banner was flung out here on which the names of both Cleveland and Hen dricks appeared. Calls were made for speeches, when S. Harrison Wagner appeared at an upper window, and after a brief car angue to the crowd introduced "Governor" Bowers, who repeated his speech made in the rore part or tne evening. J ben James Pigott was sent to the front and addressed the crowd as Fellow Republicans and Fel low Independents." The genial city clerk was in one of his pleasantest moods and kept the audience in good humor until the close of his "peroration." Then the three score men and boys started up Chapel street again, and at 10:30 the na tional salute on the Green was fired and the '-great boom" for Cleveland and Hendricks was at an end. Middle town.'. Centennial. Middletown has a thousand dolllars col looted for its centennial, next. Monday, the 14th, and the mayors of all the cities of the State have promised to be present. There is to be a a parade in the morning, and an ora tion by Samuel L. Warner in the afternoon. In the evening, a band concert and fireworks, of course. A Large Oak, On the Stony Gutter road near Danbury is a white oak tree that is the largest known in Connecticut by anyone in that vioinity. It is the handsomest oak thereabouts, and it is likely it has no superior ( perhaps no equal) in the State. Its height is in the neighbor hood of 100 feet. The circumference of the trunk is 22 feet; the circumferenoe at the first limb is 13 feet. The spread of its branches is 83 feet. Its age is estimated at 200 years. The tree stands on the land of George Downs. It is out of sight on any line of travel, and may be said to be wasting its beauty. BuildiniE Improvements. The Blackmail house, Church street, which stood next above Mr. JuBtus S. Hotohkisa residence, has been demolished and work is' in progress for the ereotion of a handsome dwelling on its site. The new resideone of Mr. Noble. Bishop, jr., of the firm of Foskett 4 Bishop, on Or' ange street near Humphrey, is closed in and roofed and the interior work is now being finished. It is of attractive design. Prof. Mixter's handsome new residence on Edwards street is fast approachins comple tion. Blaine Kalgtlta. To the Editor of the Journal, and Coubibb: now inai me times are arming into po litical organizations and torohlights and musio will be among the lively things of the coming contest, will some public-spirited citizen get up a club of "Blaine Knights?', In many western cities they are organizing composed of the best citizens. The uniform is a jacket resembune those worn bv the knights of old, a helmet and plume and spear or lance with pennant. As Blaine ia called tne "Plumed Knight, the uniform is verv appropriate. Who will Btart the Blaine Knights? Cost of uniform five dollars. .Republican . The Carpet Katera. The mother of the "buffalo bug," that voracious carpet eater whioh appears in Nor wich this season in greater numbers than ever before, is a small, inoffensive looking beetle, dark brown in color, and is always to be seen about the room where the grubs are found eating. The father of these pests is a little smaller than his partner and in dress is a perfect Beau Brummell, carrying fanciful patterns, white, orange and crimson, upon his Dack. Tne war should be made upon the beetles which appear in March. Benzine generously applied to carpets and upholstered furniture infested will put an end to the rav ages or tne gruo. la the lain. About 1 o'clock this morning a bright light was seen in the direction of Steamboat wharf. An investigation revealed the fact that it was a house owned by a Mrs. Munson on the East Haven shore, and located a short distance below Tomlinson's bridge near the oil works. The house was burned to the ground. It was occupied by George Young, who worked for the Candee Rubber Co. in this city. Mr. Young and his family were absent at the time, and his furniture was a total loss. The property with 'the oil works had recently been attached, and it is sup posed that the fire was the work of an in cendiary. It was only through great efforts of the neighbors that the oil works were saved from burning. . " West Haven. Business a the Shore Talk On the Sub ject Tne Reit Town Election The Boatman and Their Passenger. Business at the shore is generally good and visitors at the shore are numerous. The grand daily rush from the city will soon b gin. The weather of the past week or two having been moderately cool has not driven people to the shore, but the conductors say wait till the sweltering dajs come and the oars will be crowded to overflowing. The boat men, as every summer, are at the Book and at Howes' with their swift sailing sharpies ready to take passengers out for a sail upon the briny deep. To visitors at the shore from np country a sail on the Sound is a great treat, and the boatmen say that the percentage of this class of patrons who pat ronize the boats is much larger than ' the per centage of city people who do likewise. The boatmen are most frequently' asked by patrons to take them out to New Haven's breakwater and the "new light," and this round trip gives the patrons about a six mile sail. Concerning "no license" in West Haven oM residents and nersons familiar with the shore say that the 6ffect already has been an improvement in the way of quiet and order, and that it is noticeable that more ladies visit the shore. They claim that the patron age of restaurants and shore houses has not suffered by it, but has really gained and that business ia better this year than last; also that if no license is maintained a few years that the Bock will gain many per cent, finan cially and otherwise. On the other hand there are highly influential gentlemen who advocate that this is a free country, and that no license will work detriment to the Bock eventually. The license question will evi dently be a live toplo in the borough just be fore the next meeting time comes arouna. Business at the skating rinks is very good. Howes' rink is lively with people and skaters and lookers-on, with parents- aca young folks everv afternoon and evening. Mr. Howes has met with snob encouragement mat he has decided to have an orchestra in at tendance everv Monday. Wednesday and Friday evenings, rain or shine. A party which will numDer X) or ouo peo Dle will visit Howes' restaurant and waiting rooms on the 23d of this month from Hol- yoke, Massachusetts. They will bring a brass band. Interesting to Xiiqnor Dealers. Shall Their Bonds he .Forfeited In Case of Revocation ofLicenie On Monday next before Judge Torrance in the Court of Common Pleas a demurrer will be argued by Attorney William C. Case in the case of Patrick Willis, whose license was revoked by the county commissioners- Mr, Dailey proceeded to bring suit for the 'for feiture of Mr. Willis' bond of $300. The case was returnable some time ago in the Court of Common Pleas, but was continued from time to time to suit Mr. Case's conven ience, he being in Hartford as a member of the Legislature. He has finally agreed to be on hand next Monday, end to give his reason whv the demurrer he filed should be sus tained. It is understood that the point Mr. Case will make is that Mr. Dailey (or the town treasurer') has no power to sue on a bond without Mr. Willis being previously con victed before a jury. The conviction in the case in question was before a judge of the City court. Mr. Dailey is prepared to argue against this point and in favor of the demur rer beine overruled. The decision in tbis case will hold in the cases of Charles W. Bradley,CharIes Carland, Patrick Maher. Daniel Hoean and jonn Madiean. which are now pending. All their licenses have been revoked and if Mr. Dailey succeeds in setting the Willis bond forfeited to the town treasury he will at once bring suits in the other five cases.

He was bare' beaded and without coat or vest and on meet ins the Democratic procession marched along with them until they came to Church street. Here some young men took him out of the orowd and into Spaulding's drug store. Officers Bice and Nichols were called and took the young man to the station house.

MoNeille, rec tor of the South church in Bridgeport, on Thursday evening. The Alvord place, the pastor's residence, is one of the pleasantest residences in Bridgeport. There was a large attendance. The grounds were beautifully illuminated by locomotive headlights,Chinese lanterns and the full moon.

Two Italians Killed. Confusion and Death On the Rail Before Two Approaching; Trains The Bodies Taken To WalllnKford and Then Brought To This City. The Italian community in this city re. oeived a severe shock yesterday afternoon and before evening the representatives of the sunny land swarmed about the morgue in the basement of the City Hall where lay the mangled bodies of two Italian workmen, who had been killed yesterday on the track of the Consolidated railroad in Hamden. The names of thelkilled persons are Antonio Inzero aged 35, and Andrea Cristello, aged 29. They were working in the brickyard belonging to Edward Davis, the first brickyard on the line of the road out of the city. It was their cus torn to return to tbis city, where tbey live, every evening. Lact night they proceeded to walk down the track. They had proceed ed not more than 100 yards from the brick yard before the up passenger train that leaves tbis city at 5:55, Conductor Loomis, came bowling along, and a down freight also. Both trains whistled considerably, and the Italians besame confused, and one got on one track and one on the other. The result was that both were struck, thrown high in the - air and instantly killed. Inzero had bis left leg broken a terrible gash in his face and other bad bruises. Cristello's right leg was broken and he was bruised badly. Tne accident was seen by several of their fellow-workmen and by members of the Graj s who were prac tising at their rifle range noar by. Jonn Morse, engineer of the passenger train, stopped his engine, and the dead bodies were taken to Wallingford, where they were left at the depot and Dr. McGee, of Wallingford summoned. The bodies were then taken on the White Mountain express, which reaches here at 7:05, to this oity and were conveyed by Depot Policeman Kennedy and Henry Higgins to the morgue. Cor oner Bollman was notified. He held a preliminary examination, but owing to the absence of the engineers and firemen of the trains by whioh the men were struck, little could be learned of the affair. Superintendent Henney telegraphed for those parties and tbey will be examined by the cor oner at 10 o clock tnis morning. Inzero had been in this country about year and has worked nearly all that time at the biick yard. He lived on East street, Criatello lived at 191 Hamilton street and had only been in this country about two months. Tbey have many acquaintances here who were anxious to view their remains last even ing. Enterprise. 8. S.

To the Editor of the Joubnai. and Coubieb: Will you kindly correct an article in last night's Begister, which states that the steam er Philadelphia struck a rock off Branford Point House yesterday ? Such was not the case, neither did she come in close proximity to one. What is more, such a thing is very unlikely to happen. On board the Philadel phia are three of our best known local pilots, who do not "guess" but "know where they are going. At Money Island dock our only difficulty has been experienced owing to the dangerous reefs about there, although no trouble has occurred from them. but after much deliberation have decided it best for the safety of our passengers and steamer to discontinue landing at that place, At all other landings the depth of water is much more than sufficient for our steamer i draught. Yours very truly, F. W. Hinman, Commanding Steamer Philadelphia, They Can't Live Together. A colored woman of middle age called at the police station last night and poured into Lieutenant Wnnn s ears a long tale of woe and misery, which the lieutenant bore with wonderful fortitude. The woman gave her name as Mrs. Jones, wife of William Jones, living on Winchester avenue. She wanted her husband arrested. They have been mar ried sinoe March 4th, but Mrs. Jones related enough to make a story of years of marita infelicities. Her husband locked her out of tbe house for the past two nights and she had to seek lodgings elsewhere. The list of high-sounding names which she said her bus band applied to her would not look well in print. She said she had tried to live peace with her husband, but had stood his abuse long enough. He had struck her sev eral times. "I tell you, there's no living with that wo man, said a peaceaDie looking colored man about an'hour later to Mr. Wrinn. "She has got a butcher knife at the head of the bed, and I didn't dare let ber in the house. I think too muoh of my life. She's threatened to kill me." And the man went on to tell how he had been abused. He said he would go this evening and have a warrant sworn Attempted Snicida in Aaaonla. The wife of James Shannon, a brakeman on the De rby railroad, and living ia Ansonia, attempted suicide Wednesday night by throw ing her self into the river there. Shannon olalms that his wife has been unfaithful to him and their domestio relations have been for some time very unpleasant. She met him when the midnight train arrived Thurs day night and said if he did not go home with ber she would throw herself Into the river. He refused to go, and walking to the river she carried out her threat Her cries were heard by two young men who rescued her. Dr. Blodgett was called and after re storatives were applied the woman was taken to her home. The doctor was of the opinion that the woman must have been drug ged in some way. Her husband still declares that He will not use who net or nave any thing more to do witn ner. Ills Financial Situation. At the trial of A. L. Booth in Naugatuek he refused to enter a plea, and his counsel entered a plea of not guilty and the examina tion proceeded. He was charged with forg ing the names of different persons in checks of various amounts. The evidence was con- clusive and Booth was bound over nnder $500 ta tbe next term of the Superior court. He was brought to JSw tiaven ja.it, ana will do returned to Birtainguam to-aay ror examina tion on the H. . Peck fraud On Thursday another cheek came to light, one for $10 in tbe possession of J. H. Floyd. From cor respondence found in Booth's office, it is as certained that while agent for the Domes tic Sewing Machine company in Hartford, he embezzled $201.75, and that he also appro nriated to his own use two machines valued : oi ko and that the company has for soma 'time threatened to prosecute him. Postmaster Clark received a telegram from City Marshal Hamilton, of Springfield, Mass., requesting a description of tha man, as it is thought its has been operating in that vioinity.
