A Mournful Protest Against gammer Hotel Flies A Clond of moaqnltoes A Traveler's Experience Near New Haven. . . -" A mournful hotel boarder writes to one of the State papers a protest against hotels which abound in flies and particularly hotel dining rooms which abound in flies. The correspondent objects strenuously to flies being served in tea and coffee, In which posi tion she is unquestionably right, and she thinks it hot unjust to require hotel keepers to keep their dining rooms tolerably free from flies, since she thinks this boon can easily be obtained. The correspondent pa thetically says: The swarms that meet one at hotel dining rooms morning, noon and night, blackening the tablecloth, standing every where where they should not, served tip in the choice viands of the kitchen, apparently cooked with them, and bathing in one's tea and eoffee, are, to tmy toe least, not ttppetifc lag and probably emm mote complaints than all the wt of the Inconveniences put together while wy from Home, It does seem a if while they might be excluded at leaet trim the klMietin and dining room by wire HorettDH, whioh are now m cheep ami plenty and to he had at a day's notice, that the keepers of summer resorts might add to their own reputation and the comfort of their guests by making them o easily contented and happy, The above reminds a New Haven man of the mosquito grievance. He says: I was travelling the other day about five miles from New Haven's City Hall, together with a friend, we came to a long ana rolling sec tion, thick with bushes which grew close together, and seemed to have taken a contract to occupy every available inch of ground. It was low ground, somewhat in clined to be marshy, on either side of the road. Our horse,a black, usually very tract able and moderate in gait, suddenly gave strong evidence of disqnietude. We also began to sympathize for we began de fending ourselves from clouds of mosquitoes. We slapped and brushed and brushed and slapped, and still fresh arrivals came from out the brush or bushes. We chanced to look at our poor steed and we will be sworn that the horse looked actually as if it was of a dark brown color. There was a myriad of mosquitoes upon him. We were so torment ed ourselves that all we could do was to drive fast and the horse responded with great alac rity to the whip. On emerging from the brush-tangled region a fresh breeze struck us and we got clear of the mosquitoes. On the way through the mosquito land we glanced across at a summer cottage near a point of land. A oainter was at work on a scaffold painting the house. He was envelop ed in mosquito netting; and we afterward learned from him that he would not have work ed there without the netting to protect him for 50 a day. He knew whereof he spoke, as the first day'sexperience at painting the house amply demonstrated. The next morning he had rushed for a store and bought plenty of mosquito netting. Pell Prom a Chnrch Spire. John May, of Greenwich, the sexton of Christ church, fell yesterday from a scaffold ing on the spire, now undergoing repairs, and died in ten minutes. He was a highly respected man and leaves a widow and one child. Another Lock-lp. Under the court room of the Superior court in the new county court building is a room 25x25 feet, with barred windows, which will be used to secure prisoners during recesses of the court. Heretofore it has been necessary to take prisoners on trial to the police lock Vf. . Riflemen Practising for the Coogan Trophy. The New Haven Irish rifle team will shoot a match for the Coogan trophy against the team of the Sixty-ninth New York at ' the Savin Rock range August 26. The New Yorkers won at the first trial by 33 points, but the New Haven team have been practis ing steadily and are determined to win. The trophy is valued at over SI, 000 and is the gift of the Coogan brothers, furniture deal ers, New York. On Friday, August 15, the New Haven team will compete with a team from the Grays and later with teams from the Light Guard and Sarsfields. Sailing By moonlight. The steamer Ivemia took out a private party of twenty couples for a sail on the Sound last evening. The moon shone bright ly and the sail was delightful.

Ailing and others fa vored the discontinuance. Approved Mrs. Mary Say appeared and asked for an extension of time for laying the walk on Jackson and Monroe streets. John C. Hollister appeared in regard to remonstrance for a sidewalk on Pine street from Clinton avenue west. He said it was evident that the walk should be paved on the other side. The Home for the Friendless were in no condition to pay the amount that would be required of them to pave the walk, Mayor Lewis said that there was no ques tion but that the navement should be laid on the north side of Pine street. John King advocated the laying of the walk for the convenience of the public. He said that if the Home of the Friendless was not able to lay out the walk, he would buy enough of their land to help them to do so. Alderman Kennedy appeared in regard to the pumps ordered at tne junction or Washing ton and Lafayette streets. He said that if the pumps were located where ordered it would endanger children who went there for water on account of passing teams. Charles Dickerman appeared and stated that a block of houses owned by him at the corner or Xork and George streets were Hood ed in the cellars by heavy storms, the George street sewer not being able to carry off the water. He asked the privilege of building private sewer to connect with the Spruce street sewer at his own expense. He was granted the privilege. . Edward McCarthy appeared and complain ed of an injustice done by the Board in that he had been compelled to put down a walk in front of bis premises twelve feet wide. while his neighbors had only put down a ten foot walk. He asked that his neighbors be compelled to do tne same as he bad been obliged to do. The property is on Congress avenue between George and Oak streets. The matter was referred to the city engineer to inquire and report. Major Maher and J. B. Sargent were be fore the Board in regard to a violation of i violation or al private twelve city ordinance in laying a inch sewer through Hamilton street and con necting it with the Water street sewer with out obtaining a suitable permit as required by law. The law provides that only a six inch pipe shall be laid and as understood twelve inch pipe was laid contrary to law. Mr. sargent claimed that be nad not in jured the city in any way by taking the course he had in making the connections. If the law had been violated it was only a technical vio lation. The Mayor said to Mr. Sargent that he had built a private sewer without any authority whatever and ne considered it an outrage. Corporation Counsel Driscoll said that as he read the law no connection could be made with any sewer "not more than six inches in diameter" as printed on the back of the permits. The present ordinances did not permit of any drain pipe Being connected with any sewer that is over six inches in diameter. Mr. Pond said he had no doubt but that Major Maher had acted in good faith after re ceiving tne word he had from Mr. faargent. it was voted to instruct tne city engineer to advertise for bids for "sewers in Orange street rromAvon toCommerce streets ;m .Front street from Meadow street easterly; m Wash ington street from Cedar street to Howard avenue.

The Amenia Times of July 21st gives a description of a fine monument which has been recently erected by a much esteemed New Haven gentleman, Dr. Paul 0.

The oil ginal Skiff farm, purchased by the above Nathan Skiff, is now owned bv Dr. Skiff of New Haven, and is said to have been one of the first, if not the first, deeds found upon the town records.

On the base is another of the same material four feet square, then the shaft, made of Scotch granite,three feet in diameter,of panel work, crowned with projections of rounded cornices, each one smaller than the next one lower, and on this is a large urn crowned with a globe or ball. On the cornices are beautiful and various designs worked out with such perfection that one is astonished to think that such hard material can be wrought into a thing of such beauty. We understand that the cost of this monument was $3,000, and it stands eleven feet high. Personal. We learn from an exchange that Thomas Ailing recently discovered "Benedict Ar nold's hiding place " in New Haven, Conn.
