A stalwart republican paper is to be started in New Britain and in a few days the first number will make its appearance. The founders are John Waters. H. A. Stocking and W. E. Preston, who have perfected their ar rangements with such secrecy that even their most intimate friends have not been apprised, of j,he new venture. It is understood that the new paper starts with a good financial backing and from its birth will be modeled on the most approved modern principles of up-to date journalism. Of course the chief end and object of the new creation will be directed to wheeling New Britain firmly into the republican ranks, and incidentally to become a factor in state politics.

Camp's store onto North Main street Thursday night met Robert White, who had been out doing some soldering In a neighbor's house. White had a lager bottle about half full of muriatic acid and in fun he took it out and offered it to Middlebrooks, who grasped it quickly. Before he could be stopped he had taken a. swallow or two of the fiery stuff. As he took the swallow White yelled and reached to snatch the bottle away but not before Middlebrooks Wad taken considerable. White hurried Middlebrooks home and got medical aid as soon a-s possible. Dr. Hulbert came and administered anti dotes and Mid-dlebrooks will recover, although it was la pretty narrow es cape. MERIDEN'S FACTORIES. Meriden, Aug. 11.

The occasion was the firemen's parade and field day, under the auspices of Fitton Fire com- pany. The buildings of the city were draped in bunting and many mottoes of "Welcome, Brave Boys" were seen The 10 a. m. train brought Central Hose company of East Hartford, Burn side Hose No. 3 and the Allyn .Drum band of Hartford. The visitors were met by Chief Wagner and Assistant Chief Heffron. Centre Hose of East Hartford brought its hose carnage, which was handsome ly decorated. The others to arrive early were the Windsor Locks company and the Stafford Springs company. At noon the members of the city de partment and the visiting firemen with the city and town officials sat down to a dinner in the Methodist church vestry room. The parade, which started at 10 o'clock, was formed as follows: A. B. Dickinson, marshal. Platoon of police. Hatch's Military band, Hartford. Chief of fire department. Hockanum Hose No. 1. Fitton Fire company No. 2, Rockville. Steamer No. 2, Rockville. Sam Fitch Hose No. 2. Hook and Ladder Co. Allyn Drum band, Hartford. Centre Hose, East Hartford. Burnside Hose, Burnside.

After the banquet Mayor Henry was Introduced by Chief Wagner and made the address of welcome. Speeches were also made by Alderman Hammond, Councilman Fay and Chief Goodwin of East Hartford. HARTFORD AND THE BOUNTY ACT. Hartford, Aug. 11. 'Hartford has re ceived as yet only one claim under the soldiers' bounty act. The Post says: A reporter of the Post called on. Select man Blake and asked him if amy claims had been preferred against the town of Hartford. Mr. Blake said: "I have only received one claim so far and that is from a man named Charles F. Par ker, who resides in Vermont. Attorney J. H. Brocklesby is of the opinion that under the law we will have to pay all such claims, but I have no idea as to what the amount will be, but do not expect it will be large." In September, 1862, the town of Hart ford -appropriated $100,000 to pay boun ties to soldiers. Each man who enlisted or was drafted was to receive from the town $100 and lateY this amount was increased to $125. What proportion of this $100,000 was ever paid in bounties it seems impossible to determine. Town Clerk Higgins has tried to find record of the expenditure but cannot. The money was expended by a war commit tee, and among the members were J. G. Batterson, J. Hurlburt White and Sidney Ensign. Mr. Batterson said to a Post, man: "The general assembly cannot compel the town to pay these bounties any more than It can compel the town to pay any bill. If the gener al assembly has power to suspend the statute of limitation; then the courts must decide the cases, but the legisla ture cannot compel us to give bounties and they can't compel us to pay them. But as far as I remember nearly all the soldiers entitled to bounties were paid, and I don't think there are many claims against the town anyway." HARUOAR'I SOCIETY CONVENTION New Britain, Aug. 11. The conven tion of the Harugari societies to be held In this city August 19 promises to be quite an extensive affair. Nearly all of the societies of the state will send large delegations and from information received by the committee having the preparations in charge it has expecta tions that nearly twenty bands will be in the parade. The City band of twenty-five pieces will furnish music for the : local society, and the mayor and common council have accepted in vitations to review the parade. There will'be a. grand picnic after the parade in Rentchler's park, and many na tional games will help to make it enjoyable. EVENTS IN SIMSBURY. ' Simsburg, AUg. 11. John G. Carpen ter, a native of Vermont, but for many years a resident of this town, died at the home of his daughter in Milford, Mass., on Tuesday, aged seventy-five. His body was brought to this place for burial on Thursday afternoon. A reception which was largely attend ed by townspeople and others was held at the residence of Amos R.

Excellent Sacred Concert Given at Railroad Grove A First Claim Attraction Secured for ThU Week Wet Haveu'a Building Buoni Other Newly Itiins. Another targe crowd of pleasure seek ers vlBited Svin Rock yesterday, at tracted thither by the cool and delight ful breezes to be found along the shore front. It was one of the largest Bun day crowds of the season at this popu lar west shore resort, and notwithstand ing the fact that the Winchester ave nue railroad company made more fre quent trips and ran. trailers through out the afternoon, it found itself almost unable to accomodate the large crowd which was intent .upon spending a Sunw day by the seashore. It is estimated that fully 10,000 persons were at the rock yesterday. Landrigan's augmented band gave a fine sacred concert at the band stand in railroad grove which was thoroughly enjoyed by the large crowd. The cor net and piccolo solo's rendered by Fred Guilford and George H. Kessell were the features of the concert and both soloists were encored repeatedly. Despite the fact that the crowd was one of the alrgest that has ever visited the shore on a Sunday, it was a most orderly one and up to nightfall not a single arrest Wad been made for drunk enness or breach of the peace. All the saloons were closed tight even to the little back doors and altogether it was a very dry Sunday for all who went to the shore hoping to be able to quench their thirst for intoxicating liquors. For the week commencing to-day the Winchester road has secured One of the finest attractions and marvels that Is at present on exhibition. It is the celebrated Gorlham troupe of Japanese jugglers and performers on high wires, who are renowned for their marvellous and daring feats. The exhibitions, which will be given every afternoon and evening during the week, are free to all and will prove the feature of the season at the Rock. ' The proper fad for people whose bus iness prevents their leaving home for any lengffli of time during the smmmor, is now the organization of family par ties, who go to the shore and enjoy a genuine shore dinner. During the past. week Michael Curnen, the genial pro- prletor of the cafe in railroad grove, has served excellent hore dinners to about a score of such parties, some of whom have come from out of town es pecially to try his famous shore dinners. Mr. Curnen says the season with Mm has been an excellent one so far. West Haven is at present enjoying quite a building boom. At the present time there are no less than fifteen new houses in course of erection, while oth ers are being contracted for. C. W. Clark, the builder, has recently purchased a building lot on Union street, on which he has his barn rals?d and will erect a new residence right away for himself. - Dr. I. W. Stiles has commenced to break ground for his new house at the corner of Center street and Washington avenue. The plans are for a very handsome dwelling 20x40, with broad verandas around the first and second floors. Joseph Andrews has the con tract for the carpenter work, and Bur torn Holbrook has the mason work. The. new hose carriage for the North End Hose company arrived early this week and is now temporarily stored in the barn of Monroe Scranton on Spring street. It is a handsome four wheel carriage and when f tted out with hose and the otlher implements will be one of the best pieces to the borough. The boys feel quite proud of their cart, which has been purchased entirely by their own efforts, aided by a section of the town. At an early date a hose house will be erected on Spring street, where the boys can congregate and the apparatus be kept. WOODMOXT.nr.TH E-SEA.

' 'I frUULU ilAiiUlii UIl! On the third floor of an ordinary lodging house in the City of Brooklyn was found the body of a lodger, with a revolver by his side and a bullet in his head. In his pocket was found a book in which was written: "I am tired of life because I am suffering from consnmptioo. 1 would try to work but it is useless while I futve no hope of Retting better.'' What a commentary on our boasted civil ization! A poor wretch, suffering from what ha supposed was an incurable disease, snuffs out his flickering life with a bullet. Where did he get the idea that his disease was incurable? From an old-time theory which modern investigation has exploded. Many diseases may be considered incur able, but that does not make them so. During the past few years scientists have discovered, in the tuberculosis germs, the cause of consumption. Their investiga tions have found a cure for the malady, in Ozone and Goaiacol. These agents de stroy the germs which produce the disease Compounded with pure Cod Liver Oil, they form Ozomulsion, which is sold by all Drug gists. This remedy cures consumption ant all lung troubles. It first destroys the cans of disease the poisonous germs which pro duce it and then restores the patieut to per fect health. The Ozone and Guoiacol kill the germs. TheCod Liver Oil provides the flesh and strength. That is the principle on which this medicine works.
