Limited. f XtiieBdltorof the Joumal eua Couiuvn: The appearance of a large, first class, capitally constructed and evi dently carefully prepared boom In one of the evening papers lait week oalli attention to the aubject of booms In general, aa well aa to the characteris tics of the particular boom published. U muBt be understood at the outset that the question Is approached generi cally. The bill allows Itself no prefer ence among candidates. It has the kindest, the roost pleasant and the tnost deferential feelings towsrds oil kandldates. present, future and possi ble It It could have Its own way there would be offices for all candidates: there wouid be no ucb a thing as a disappointed candidate. But unfortu nately affairs have arranged them selves otherwise aod we have to take toe world as It is. The boom In ques tion Is an excellent boom. It Is neither too long nor to short. It seems to con tain all the essential qualities of a very good article ot boom. In fact It may be taken, If not as a model, certainly as a help In the study of booms. The first question Vtalch presents Itself Is, should there be booms? Are booms good things In themselves? This ques tion must be answered In the affirma tive. The Ideal candidate is the man whose modesty is the equal of his abili ty and who is as ooy as he is virtuous. He hides himself away In his back yard, or his back office, till he is dragged forth by fellow citizens who will not be denied, and who will not take no for an answer. This animal is extinct He lived. If he ever lived, long before the historic period. Even Prof. Marsh hasn't a fossilized bone of him. If the actual facts about Clnclnnatus and the plough could be had, it would undoubtedly appear that the plough was borrowed for the occasion and that the hero was kept fully advised of the approach of the nominating commit tee. There is Just as much virtue in the world to-day as there ever was, and of Just as good a, ojuallty. Booms are a neceBsary part of our civilization. They were undoubtedly quite as neces sary to the civilizations of Confucius, Moses and George Washington. If a man wish an office he must express himself to that effect, and he must do everything in his power to" convince others that he is the one man for the position. The theory that the office seeks the man has never been accepted by experts. Even under the present proponderously virtuous and sacrificial executive no office has been, touad go ing about seeking for a rna.ii tp.flt it. A would-be candidate must place him self prominently and conspicuously be fore the eyes of his fellow men. He must proclaim his own virtues; or see to it that they are proclaimed by others. He must enumerate, or have enumera-. ted, his qualifications. His' deeds' must be cited. If there be no deeds to cite, good excuse must be made for his deed lessness and acceptable promises made for the value of future services. Booms are, therefore, absolutely in dispensable. The remaintag -questions are; who shall prepare them, and how shall they be prepared. The boom which has suggested this article is preceded by an Interview of the boomer and the booSnee. It is therefore safe to conclude that the boom was prepared with the knowl edge and sanction of the boomee. if not with his assistance. It is also pro per to assume that the boomer fur nished the facts and that he may even have suggested the verbiage. Should a man indite his own boom? Here also the answer may be in the af firmative. If he do not do it himself, It may. not be done at all. And If he be a conscientious man, who can possibly do it better? As a matter of fact does not every man have a hand in the con coction W his own booms? And if he do not, may he not repent afterward of not having done so? Now, if candi dates prepare, or superintend the prep aration of, their own booms ; and if all the world knows that they do so, why is it not better to come straight out and say so? What is the use of affecting shyness and coyness when it is perfect ly well known that these qualities do not exist? No one nowadays wiU .be taken in by the display; and the can didate will be laboring under a load of deceit that will obscure his real and ob trusive virtues. Never leave to others what you can possibly do yourself, is a rule which holds in booms as in all other human activities. If a candidate will stick to facts in his boom he need not fear the consequences. The boom in question bears the impress of truth. It has the ring of honesty and sincerity from one end to the other. No accusa tion of egotism can be based upon it. The facts are stated modestly. The picture is not overdrawn.. The boom puts the boomee before the citizens of Connecticut exactly as he Is. In mak ing their choice they will make it with full knowledge of at least one of the candidates. At the same time and on the whole it might be better in the ma jority of cases to have booms written by outsiders. In spite of the very best effortB in the cause of sincerity it is given to but few men not to overesti mate, or underestimate," themselves. And a man is Just as likely to do the one as the other. An outsider who has a turn for truth, a mind of historic en quiry and a freely not too freely flowing pen, and who moreover has no financial, or . other, interest, at stake would be a safer boom writer for can didates than candidates themselves. If, moreover, - boom writing could be elevated Into a profession and boom writers appointed as Judges, for in stanoe, what advantage to the commu nity! Booms would then be read with 'confidence and not regarded .with sus piclon. It would not be .necessary, for the professional boomers t$ write out each "and every boom. It would be sufficient if they passed on those sub mitted. Their official jseaT' would be accepted as a guarantee of truth. , It is expected that thtSTtutunw hee will be many candidates in Connecti cut: more . than, usual. Toere are al ready In the . field three republican candidates for governor. -How many the democrats propose .putting In re mains to He seen. If tisereas maiix. '. i . it there- re democratic parties In con gress just now there won't be demo cratic votes enough to go round. Then there Is the populist party and the ever rejuvenating prohibition party. All of these partite are to be supplied with a variety of candidates for a variety of ottives, and each candidate will re quire' any number of booms; for a boom acceptable In one section of the atate may not be accepted In all. That the writing of all these booms should be left to novices and amateurs Is non sense. It would be a waste of an oppor tunity to form and develop a new and profitable industry. Let the publlo look out for the Incorporation of; "The Prospect Hill Boom Writing Co., Limi ted. Candidates before addressing them selves elsewhere will find It to their in terest to communicate with the Pros pect Hill Boom Writing Co., Limited. Business conducted with secrecy and dispatch. A large line of booms and boomlete constantly on hand for Imme diate use, with blank spaces for names, offices, dates, virtues, deeds and other qualifications. The statements ot can didates accepted, or examined. In ac cordance with a fixed scale of prices. No bribery or corruption tolerated on, or within a hundred feet of, the prem ises. Guarded and obscure entrances and exits, &c &c. A prospectus like the above would, of course, cover the whole thing with ridicule. It Is only given to show with what care the incorporators will have to proceed, and to let the public know that they are perfectly aware of the dangers and perplexities which beset their path. The public can rest as sured that the incorporators will not be caught napping. They know what they are about. Whether the company will unite with companies already formed for writing speeches for pro spective or actual candidates; speeches to be used in congress, In the legisla ture, after dinner speeches, &c, &c, Is not yet Bettled. Boom writing Is the easier writing. The other companies have not assured existences and the Boom Co. does not wish to imperii the value of its stock. Moreover, speech writing requires an intimate acquaint ance with the prospective speakers, which might be disagreeable to the company's officials, and the use of ap propriate slang and ungrammatlcal ex pressions which might be quite offen sive -to... the company's professor of style. Still in these commercial days the company must, for cash, hold Itself ready to make all reasonable sacrifices. As to how booms are to be prepared; that of course is the company's secret. So much depends upon the man and the office that little can be said, or written, in a -general way on the subject. The company has no objections, however, to let the public know the fundamental methods of the business. In fact it would rather have them known in or der that the public may be ready with suggestions for Improvement. The company trusts that it and the public may be one from the outset. In the first place experience has taught that a boom should be of two parts, the Inter view and the boom proper. Which should proceed is a matter of so little importance that the order may be left to the idiosyncraciea of the candidate. It is politic to consult the candidate so far as combatible with safety. All the self-abnegation part of the boom should be in the interview. Here the candidate expresses in selected lan guage his humility, his overwhelming sense of responsibility in the face, See., of the exalted office, &c. Here also cornea in his high regard for the other candidates and his conviction that the interest of the party would be safe, &c, in their hands,&c. Caution is necessa ry. The candidate must not be allowed to express a too strong sense of the merits of rival candidates. The public might take him at his word and dis miss him as an inferior creature. All this has been well thought out by the company. Candidates need have no fears. A most choice and extensive list of phrases has been prepared, any one of which can be used with perfect safety in reference to a rival candi date. Rival candidates may come to the company's parlors and get them off at one another without any fear of offense being given, or of confession tf superiority being conveyed. The com pany prides itself particularly on these phrases. The party supposed to be Interview ing the candidate must be represented as, skillfully leading him on to rehear sals of virtues and of valiant party deeds, betraying him into bashful con fessions of political valor and integrity. If the candidate have a military, or naval, scar, allusion will be made. If he have a secret end family grief cal culated to excite the sympathies of par ties similarly, afflicted, delicate men tion will appear. In fact candidates can trust themselves fully and abso lutely. Everything an active and in telligent company can dp will be done. In the boom proper pat of the boom comes in the history of the candidate, cautiously seasoned with not too ful some praise, wisely spiced with not too adulatory admiration. The Company's best writers are employed in the boom proper department. It is not necessary for the candidate to be immediately concerned with the compilation of the boom proper except so far as ;the fur nishing of the facts is concerned. The necessary harmonizing and ornamental fictions will be Interspersed by the com pany's imaginative "arid poetic assist ants. It might be better if the candi date did not even, see the boom proper; so that, if a neophite, he may swear honestly that he knows nothing about it. The company has ah understanding with the Connecticut branch of the So ciety of Colonial Warriors for supply ing such allusions to ancestors as may be deemed advisable. The S. of C. W.'s supply of ancestors and ancestral allu sions is practically lnexhau3table. Best possible arrangements have-been made with the press of the state for the insertion of booms at' the lowest possible rates for third-class matter. The company Insures success at rates proportioned to risks; taken. - This is about all the company has to expose at present. For further and pri vate Information candidates are re ferred to the public's obedient and humble servant, PERIANDER. Prospeot Hill, Aug. 7; 1894. County Home Overcrowded. .

The last game of the series -Idr' the dry goods championship will fee played at the Savin Rock grounds this after noon betwen Malley, Neely & Co. and P.' M. Brown & Co. This will be a very important game, as it will decide the second place In the league, so there Is much interest in it The two teams are so evenly matched that neither apparently has any ad vantage, and for this reason should be a very Interesting game. The league has been informed by the WeBt Haven authorities .that any man 'blowing a horn on the grounds will be arrested. They don't take kindly to this kind of applause. However, no good play will go without encouragement, and West Haven is a very airy place. ' The West Haven Hook and Ladder company will have a tournament and field day at Savin Rock to-morrow. Many fire companies will be Invited to participate in the event. Notice has been given te the effect that appllction will be made to the next general assembly for a charter to run an electric road from the terminus of the West Shore road at Woodmont, to Milford, and from Mtlford through Stratford to Bridgeport.

The other sets will be held In reserve at the. state arsenal for a possible necessity, and may be Issued to one regiment for use in camp next year. The cost to the state for the fourteen sets Is about J600. This cooking appa ratus has been adopted by the regular army, nearly. 1,000 sets having been Is sued. General Harbison bought the regular army size, which is a complete outfit for boiling, roasting, baking, stewing, broiling and frying, and lnoludes com plete oven and all cooks' tools. Each outfit will, cook for nearly 100 persons and weighs less than 200 pounds. The size packed .is 30x27x11 inches. The apparatus can be set up anywhere outdoors; no hole is required to be dug and any kind of fuel can be used. The decisions of the two organisa tions to accept uncooked rations on the regular army basis will be of economy to the state as the raw rations will cost the state but twenty cents per day. per man.' Commissary-General Wil liam Jamieson haa contracted with ca terers to feed the troops In camp for tl per man for eight days- or 88 cents each per day. The. troops pay one-half this amount. Thus the acceptance of the regular bill of fare by these two organizations would have entailed an additional ex pense to the state of twenty-four centB per man per day, or about $150 for the week.
