The first step by the New Haven to divorce Its trolley nnd public utility notit lugs was taken yesterday. The western Massachusetts electric trolley systems dominated by the New Haven. were fold to the large public utility operating firm of Sanderson & Porter of this city. This was done In the purchase of control of the New Kughind Investment nnd Security Company, mo holding concern of electric properties chiefly In Springfield nnd Worcester and their environments. It is believed that the price paid was $200 a share for the 100,000 common stock, which carries practical control. The New Haven nominally ,has no controlling ownership In the New Kng land Investment nnd Security Company. Interests connected with the New Haven therefore denied yesterday knowledge of the sale and rcfucd to discuss the out look for a complete separation of tile trolley systems.

Today Friday, August First The August Sale of Furniture (Original) We have assembled for this calendared annual event (original with this house) what we are credibly informed and believe to be the largest assortment of furniture ever brought together in any store in America. Certainly the finest and most valuable! This statement is made by each of our two stores--New York and Phila delphia because it is true of each. Each store is offering in the August Sale about three-quarter million dollars of furniture over a million and a half in the two stores, the two stocks being inter changeable at will over-night. As 'a matter of fact, proved by observation, about the only competition we have in these August Sales of furniture is that between our two stores. In the special purchases, reaching in the New York Store nearly $400,000, there is a saving to our customers of $100,000. In our large fine regular stocks, which many people reading this information have already seen on our floors, there are new low markings averaging twenty per cent. There is wide choice in "the kind of furniture that the great old Masters made," which so many people are now asking for Sheraton, Hepplewhite, Chippendale and Adam, and in the Jacobean, William and Mary, Queen Anne, Colonial and Elizabethan periods. Some of the Chippendale furniture is especially interesting because it ex presses the Chinese influence with lacquer decorations and gold work. In addition to the furniture of the English schools there are many fine suites and pieces in early French designs, some in Spanish and some in Italian. Great care has been taken in the selection of all pieces, and the highest expert knowledge has been employed to avoid false or mixed types. The Exhibition in the Auditorium is attracting marked attention because it presents reproductions of famous museum pieces and some originals (genuine antiques), whose history is certified to us. We have always had this sort of fine furniture in our stocks, and these very pieces are from our regular stocks but it is the first time we have had the oppor tunity of showing them together in proper surroundings. You will thank us for calling your attention to this Auditorium exhibition, for it is even better, in an artistic way, we are told, than the Wallace collection in London.
