Local Political Notes
A Republican wigwam is soon to be con

pany's factory. It is proposed to bring up

lanxes say that there is no ill feeling between
the members of those corps, and that the re
port to that effect is without foundation. All
is harmonious between the two corps. There
is nothing but fair and well ordered rivalry,
creditable alike to both.

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

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.

Funeral of Lena int. Smith.
Beautiful were the floral tributes at the
residence of Dr. J. H. Smith, No. 9 Elm
street, yesterday afternoon at the funeral of
Miss Lena M., the eldest daughter. The
tributes were peculiarly appropriate to the
deceased from her love of flowers'. She took
especial delight in the culture and nurture
of flowers and the unfolding of the buds, and
the garden of the family residence was al
ways, in the season of flowers, rendered a
bright and beautiful spot for one of her na
ture. Among the specially choice floral de
signs were some from friends of the family
and the deceased young lady. In the absence
of Eev. Dr. Todd, Rev. Dr. Barbour, of Yale

bearers were Col. Frank P. Bigelow, Dr.

and proceeded to drill out the old charge,
and an explosion resulted. Bresnahan, who
held the drill, had his hands severely burned
and his face filled with powder, but fortu

was struck in the abdomen by pieces of rock,

Death of Mrs. Mary E. Skinner.
After months of suffering from a compli
cation of stomach troubles, Mrs. Mary E.
Skinner died yesterday morning at her home,
No. 171 East Main street, Bridgeport, at the
age of fifty-nine years. During the past few
years her health had been feeble, and in the
later months preceding her death her suffer
ings were at times excruciating, yet through
all she displayed a fortitude and tender
Christian faith that was beautiful in its les
sons of resignation. The deceased was a
woman of rare virtues, genial, companiona
ble and solicitous for the welfare of others,
and around her declining years set the halo
of a loving and tender friendship. In the
home circle the full wealth of her virtues
was revealed, and the gentle hand of love
held the wand of parental control. An af
fectionate, loving wife, a tender, gentle
mother ,her years passed on in the smooth cur
rent of domestis happiness, and she has now
gone to sleep in the enduring love of the
husband and three children bereaved by her
death. She was the mother of Mr. John E.
Skinner, a compositor ot the Joubvai. and
Coubizb, who will have the sincere sympathy
of his associates in his hour of sore bereave
ment. The funeral takes place to-morrow
afternoon at Bridgeport.

description of a fine monument which has
been recently erected by a much esteemed
New Haven gentleman, Dr. Paul 0. Skiff, on
Skiff mountain, town of Kent, in this State,
to the memory . of his father and mother.
The monument was designed and executed
by Thomas Phillip & Bun, of New Haven,

Skiff mountain in the vear 1701. 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. The monument was de
signed not only as one erected to the memory

New Haven. Conn., erected last week in the
cemetery west of St. Andrews' church, in
this village (Kent), a beautiful monument
te the memory ef the late Reims
Fuller, Esq. It is undoubtedly the finest
monument in town, of beautiful and exquis
ite workmanship and finish. The base is
of American granite, five feet square. 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.
